I have backed up the entirety of the LJ community here on DW. At some point perhaps I will delete the LJ community, but for now at least it's here.

Fair warning that this has been a dead community for a long time, and anything I may have written in it was quiiiiite long ago. But who knows, perhaps someone will bring it back! (Maybe me!)

So. [livejournal.com profile] imeander is made of awesomesauce and win!

This community has been a bit dead lately, sorry to anyone still reading. >.>

Anyway, if all goes well at some point I will start posting scanlations from Volume One here as it happens, with [livejournal.com profile] imeander's permission of course!

As these are scanlations, they'll be friends-only to the community, so you have to join to see them.

Until then, fellow fans!

PS: I intend to make a new layout for this shazzam at some point. If anyone has any ideas/requests/pictures-to-donate, feel free.

So I finally finished scanlating the one nice-sized sample I have. I may do the other, scattered pages that I have at some point, but this is the only continuous sample I have that's more than one page.

So! If you see anything that looks awkward, let me know. I'm an English-speaker first, not an Italian. :) Several times, I substituted the book's phrase instead of directly translating the Italian version. Otherwise, I tried to keep the feel.

The Calling. )

So. There's the layout here at [livejournal.com profile] eldwold, for sure. But!

I felt like making a layout from Eld art over at my writing journal, [livejournal.com profile] sayrahscribbles. Feel free to check it out!

Header (click for full size):

I made this layout using system one (S1). Paste the following into the Override section on the Modify Page:

To make the coloring come out correctly, use the following preferences under Custom Color. )

If I'm missing anything, or you have any questions, let me know! :D

As far as credit, Reiko Ohkano is the owner of the art I used (in his manga short series The Calling), but I rather put a lot of effort into that header. So it'd be cool if you remembered where you got it, at least. Y'know, when all your adoring fans ask "Oh my, where on earth did you find such an exquisite header?" And such. XD

Title: Sybel and Tam (because originality is my middle name)
Chapter(s): One-shot
Characters: Sybel and Tam fluff, yo.
Comments: Yes, that's right. I have actually written a fanfic for this book. Well, I wrote it a bit more than a year ago, according to the file creation date. Anyway. This was just a little idea that came to me. Any suggestions for improvement, related ideas, or just rambles...it's all welcome. And if you think it sucks, lay it on me!

html-ed so it's readable! :D )

I have posted a new icon from The Calling over yonder. Just the one new icon, though I also posted all the older ones I've done of The Calling in that post as well.

I intend to make more as soon as I can. @_@

Okay. I suck as a mod. But, let's just let bygones be bygones, shall we! :D

Rok and Sybel talking, Chapter Nine.

    "Why do you not set this Rommalb at Drede?"
    "Because I want a slow revenge. I want him to know what is being done to him and why, and who is responsible. The things he fears most in the world are the power and energy of Sirle, and me. He came to Mithran's tower that day expecting to find a woman who would smile and take his hand and do his bidding. Instead he found that woman gone and a great wizard lying broken on the floor. Since that day he has been afraid. Now, with your help, I will overwhelm him with his fears."
    His head moved slowly from side to side. "You are merciless."
    "Yes. If you choose to refuse me, I will go to bed and we will never speak of this again. But with or without Sirle, it will be done."
    "You have such things involved with this—Coren's love, Tamlorn's. Do you want to risk them?"
    "I have thought deep in the night, night after night, about this plan. I know the risks. I know that if Coren finds out how I have used him, or if Tam suspects that I am destroying his father, they will be hurt past bearing, and I will lose all that I value in this world. But I told you tonight what I have decided."
    "Are you sure?"
    She held his eyes. "It will be done."
    He drew a soft breath and loosed it. "I think it will be done with Sirle."

That's on pp 145-146 of my version, the first Avon printing in '75, with Sybel and Gyld on the cover (see community icon).

Here are my rambles. Comment with your own! Reply to mine! Do both! Have a party! :D )

Now. Off you go! Talk!

I have plans in the near future to get tattoos of both the Liralen and the Blammor. Though I have pictures in my head as to what I think they look like, I would like some sort of pictoral representation for the artist to go on aside from just the words in the book. I know there's a manga out there based on the book and I wondered if anyone had pictures of either the Liralen or the Blammor from the aforementioned manga that you could send me.

Mwahahaha. I was just teaching kindergarteners for three hours, so you'll pardon the kiddie-ness, but I like it.

Let's play Sybel Says!
In reality, it's not just Sybel, though...I'm going to flip open my book pretty much once a week, and find a passage or a quote I like and post it here! Feel free to comment, and ramble on and on about how you love it, hate it, what you think about the situation, how it reminds you of something you did the other day...anything!

    Sybel caught the Falcon's mind, felt the sudden sweep of earth beneath its flying.
    Ter. Go back to Tam. There is danger.
    There was silence a moment, before the drive of Ter's heartbeat and the run of fire in his veins. The he said,
    Ter. Go back to Tam.
    Ogam's child, ask of me anything else. But I have a pair of eyes to pick and a dark mind to still.

    She lost him suddenly, groped for him, amazed, and lost him again; and a whisper broke into her mind, strong, implacable.
    "No," she said, and the word fell lifeless against the white stones. "No!"

That's on pp 84-85 of my version...which is the first Avon printing in '75, with Sybel and Gyld on the cover (see community icon, heehee).

And I'll set a good example by rambling a little myself. )

Here we have several of Sybel and Coren, one of Coren, one of Drede, and several of Sybel and Mithran. (At least I'm pretty sure it's Sybel and Mithran. I could be totally wrong about that.)

Pretties! )

Why hello there! I am your friendly neighborhood mod, [livejournal.com profile] rocknlobster. I'm pretty laid back. Um, yeah. So basically I'm sitting here and thinking, Why is there no community for this book??? And thus this is born.

Soon, I shall post icons that I have made from the Japanese manga version of the book (it's just too cool that there's a manga adaptation, imo), as well as make a decent layout/icon for this here community. Contributions -always- welcome!

So welcome, all who stumble across this humble land of Eldwold! :)

EDIT: Layout is maaaade! Simple, elegant, Sybel. What can I say? (I think I'm talking to myself here...oy.)
