kelles: (Pip - courage)
[personal profile] kelles
I've been wanting to do a Pip fst because he is my favorite male character from Hellsing and last month [livejournal.com profile] fst had the perfect opportunity to do one: canon characters who died. I started early in the month but got lazy. Originally I had over 50 songs but have narrowed it down to 27. I'd like to get it down even more but it's hard - Pip was/is such a GREAT character. Does anyone have any songs they would rec for the FST? I have songs that represent Pip's childhoood, time with the Geese, and of course too many about him & Seras but I'd like to find one (or a few) about him & Alucard.

A Beautiful Lie - 30 Seconds To Mars

City Of Devils - Yellowcard

We Can Be Heros - Wallflowers

Love me when I'm Gone - Three Doors Down

Never Grow Old - The Cranberries

Headful Of Ghosts - Bush

Here We Are - Breaking Benjamin

Dance With The Devil - Breaking Benjamin

You Learn - Alanis Morissette

Yeah, I know I have 3 songs by Snow Patrol but I love them and the songs just fit.

I really need to do an update post. Which I shall. Later today. I finally fnished another chapter of Another Time, Another Place. I don't think too many on my FL are reading because no one seems to love Blood+ like I do. Not that I'm complaining. I have had a bunch of reviews on the Pit which always makes me feel happy.

Hmm, I don't see how LP's Leave Out All the Rest matches Pip... Avril Lavigne's Keep Holding On pretty much sums up his feelings for Seras, when he chose to die for her though. I know this bit, "I wish you were here/Before it's too late, this could all disappear" sounds a little weird, but if you take just those two lines out, it's perfect. AL's Innocence also matches that scene, in my opinion. I may have interpreted the lyrics wrongly, though. ^^;; *tends to over-analyse words/lyrics*

Oh, Alucard and Pip don't interact much, do they? What's your take on their relationship?

I know they don't interact much - mostly just in Brazil. I guess I think of their relationship as comrades of some sort and in relation to Seras. I'm thinking of not bothering with it because the relationship is so minor.

I think I agree with you about Leave Out All the Rest... I was thinking some of the lyrics fit for how Child! Pip felt (about what his family did) but it really wouldn't match or make sense for grown up Pip.

I'll have to listen/look up the lyrics for the AL songs. Thanks for recommending them. :)

Oh, wait, I think I'm starting to get it... You felt that it matched because of the "I can't be who you are" bit? What I think, though, is that the song is more of not wanting his family to hate him/remembering him for what they don't like about him. Pip as a child, I feel, centres more around social acceptance than acceptance within the family.

I always liked "Yellow" by Coldplay for Pip and Seras, and not just because of the "For you I'll bleed myself dry" line. Also "Like China" by Phil Collins.

For Pip himself... I'm not sure. I'll have to think about it.

I only wish I could see more of Blood+ so I could read your fic.

I'll have to listen to that song (Yellow). I think I have it. I'll check out the Phil Collins song. I love his music.

Aww...you're so nice. You should watch it on veoh (http://www.veoh.com/) when you have time. I know you're really busy with your classes. Or if you don't want to watch, you could read the manga. I have scans for volume 1 & 2. The first volume comes out is being released by Dark Horse in January. I can't wait to have it in my hands. :)

Congrats and good luck with your writing!

Thanks :)

I need to buy your book. Or maybe I'll wait and get it for myself for X-mas. I've been so broke but I should get caught up soon.

If you buy the book and send it to me (my address has changed, email me first), I can sign it and send it back to you:)

While looking through the list again, I don't think Snow Patrol's Chasing Cars matches, either. Pip doesn't seem the type to want to "just forget the world". It's pretty romantic, I guess, but I don't think that it's for Pip.

I'll have to look for Pip songs.

You know Winterborn IS the Pip song. :D

I got to your journal from fictionhaven. I'm looking for a beta for a Dracula fic I'm working on. Mainly, I need feedback/editing on the story, and some encouragement OR a friend with interest in Dracula to let me know it sucks and why.

I notice that back at the end of August you were looking for a beta for some of your fic. I don't know if you found one, or will need one in the future, but I am certainly willing to reciprocate if you have the time to help me out. I'm a professional translator and an aspiring writer.

If you want to see some of the fanfic I've done in the past, it's up on the Pit under the name jjonahjameson and also under the name inkysand.

Sorry I'm so late in getting back to you. I've been failing at LJ lately. If you haven't found anyone else, I would like to beta your fic. If you want to email it to me you can email it to me at kelles(at)livejournal(dot)com.

I am looking for someone to beta a Blood+ AU fic. Right now I'm more worried about readability then characterization. I'm usually pretty good with that part of my fics. So you wouldn't necessarily be into the fandom. The plot has nothing to do with canon since it is set in an AU. It's an anime about vampires...

Was that perhaps the "Another Time, Another Place" fanfiction? If you are still in need of someone to look over chapters to catch errors I would be happy to assist you. I'm fond of that particular story even though I am new to the fandom.
