Lucas North lives!
Well, in our imagination. I have had word today that two of my shrines have reached their destination. Among them the elusive Lucas North. He successfully eluded my attempts at enshrining him again for so long, but eventually I managed to pin him down. It was a hard battle of wills, but I finally found an angle on him. He was a long-due present for UtePirat – she who kicked off the shrining frenzy with a parcel waaaayyyy back in March!
After Alyssa’s justified comment that she couldn’t bear the thought of confining him to a small box, I felt very bad, indeed, but I decided to give him a bit of assistance with the nightmares, caused by water… can you spot it?
Dear Lucas, a hero, haunted by the past, and forsaken by his protector. The pain behind those eyes is almost tangible.
Let’s give some warmth and hope – he’s not just back, he’s home.
A bit morose for a fandom love project? Well, he’s a companion piece to Ute’s Power Porter, so hopefully the MI-6 man can share some of his extra with his MI-5 colleague…
There is another Lucas North -fan out there who has been patiently waiting for a looong time to get a Lucas North RAPS of her own. Helen has been extraordinarily supportive already, sending me several (!) parcels with extra tins, crafting beads and her beautiful handmade jewellery.
She has been nonsensically babbling in the comments about “having to build up credit” with me. I have no idea what for – I am so deeply indebted to her, I almost feel like John Porter himself… (cf. SB Episode 4) *ggg*. No worries, Helen, my punch is non-existent. But I do have a killer charm! And today she’s done it again. As a back story you must know that I am a notorious dispenser of unsolicited advice and ideas. Helen has patiently endured my brilliant ignorant suggestions – and even put them into practice. I unwrapped her parcel…
… which not only contained more sparkly crafting material and tins, *and* three gorgeous beads for the choker she gifted me in March, but also three handfuls of glass raindrops that she had made because I had whined about the bare display of branches above my fireplace… You can see them here in the photo.
I spent my lunch time attaching them to aforementioned branches, and I am currently waiting for some sunshine to properly photograph them in situ and show them
So once again a massive thank you to Helen, and all my lovely fellow fans – your kindness is amazing! This fandom keeps on giving. And I am planning on bringing more such fandom love stories to your attention this week, because there is more to record and document that I haven’t yet touched on, and more community spirit to reinforce. Some really cool suggestions have been made, and I need your advice on some shrining issues, too.
