    Grab you bonnets and top hats, ladies and gentleman, for you have just clicked on the Victorian Quote Roulette! [face_dancing]

    On this most auspicious day I am pleased to bid you welcome as we start this test of skill and fortitude. Before you, in all its regal splendor, lies my challenge to you:

    Whilst searching for inspiration amongst the vast laurels of literature at my fingertips, I comprised a list of quotes from the most talented and revered masters of Victorian lore. Within the numbered depths below lie the passionate words of the Brontë's, the quick wit of Miss Jane Austen and Mr. Oscar Wilde, the elegant prose of George Elliot and Elizabeth Gaskell. Here Charles Dickens' immortalized words lie betwixt those of Thomas Hardy and the eerily Gothic tomes of Stoker and Shelly and Stevenson . . . and those are just a sampling of the great minds waiting to inspire you.

    If you decided to partake in this roulette, here is all you must do: Pick your number. Any number, and I shall PM the quote you choose to you within 24 hours. Once you receive your quote, you pen your story, and post the link here so that the rest of your contemporaries may bask in the glories of your creation and commend you accordingly. ;)

    As there are sixty-five slots, there are more than enough to go around. Persons who wish for a second quote may do so upon assurance that everyone wishing to participate has received a first quote. :)

    I have done my best to provide a variety of quotes, but seeing as how many of the works that the quotes are taken from are romances, and even Gothic in nature, you never know what you are going to get. [face_mischief]


    Hence forth, we shall begin! [face_dancing]

    Oh...nice. I love 19th century British literature (though really, I've only ever been able to get a hold of and read Dickens and Tennyson)! I'd love to give this a shot and humbily ask for the number 26, please.

    I love the quote I've been given! Yay! Now, let the plot bunnies roll. Thanks to the drabbling I've been doing, I have another idea for a Sherlock fic, but my muse is also calling for more Hamlet/Ophelia. 8-} Choices, choice, choices... [face_laugh] I guess this is why I love challenges! [face_love]

    Idrelle: You have one of my absolute favorite quotes on here! As a matter of fact, it was the first one I chose. [face_love] I can't wait to see what you do with it! (Heck, I'd like to see a Sherlock fic and another Hamlet one from you. ;)) [:D]


    Jade_eyes: Would you be so gracious to pick a number for me? [face_batting] I am soooo itching to write now. ;) [face_dancing]


    Everyone else - your PMs are coming or have come. [face_dancing]

    I'm still working on my Proverb Roulette challenge, not to mention that I've been considering backing away from fandom for a bit, and that I expect RL to start kicking me where it counts soon -but you didn't come here to read about my personal wangst. :D 21, please, and thanks for running such an awesome challenge! [:D]

    I am in the same boat as you :oops: - and looking through these for inspiration was what prompted the challenge. [face_laugh] So I completely understand. ;)

    Thanks for stopping by and picking up a quote! [:D]

    For Mira_Jade: quote #45.

    ETA: Having shared confidentially with a couple others who are participating what our numbers derived, I must say -- I squeed over the quotes -- not even the fics they've inspired yet -- woohoo!! Jinkies!!!

    This is gonna be a melt fest!!!

    :)

    A very happy Jade

    Cyberspace Deductions! Brought to you by the NSWFF board. :D

    Hamlet and Ophelia decided they didn't want another story, so maybe next time. ;) May I have number 33 please? [face_batting]

    And yep... my Muse is officially either a) on fire, b) crazy or c) all of the above. :p

    Moment

    I have now fulfilled my promise of doing both a Sherlock fic and a Hamlet/Ophelia fic, so I think I'll take a break until I sort out school stuff. [face_laugh] That's two quotes for me done in one night! [face_laugh] 8-}
