Ficlet meme  
Comment here and my mun will write you a ficlet (or drabble as the case may be). It might be of you/how I perceive you, it might be of one of your interests, it might just be something that reminds me of you. You have no say in what she uses or says.

Then put some version of this in your journal, so I can get a new ficlet or icon or whatever! Please.

ooc: I'm gonna steal from alan_shore here and emphasize that there are no guarantees the ficlets won't suck! Also, I'm traveling out-of-state on Thursday, and am the worst responder when I'm home... so lord knows when these would get posted. But if you want one, I'll do my best to deliver. Really! =D

Captain Jas. Hook: Bad Formbad_form on August 17th, 2005 08:58 pm (UTC)
ooc: I'm really hoping this won't offend you, as Hook seems determined today to prove how absolutely ungentlemanly he really is! And as usual, not PC at all.

If Liya were transformed into a denizen of Neverland, Hook thinks, she would indubitably become Princess Tiger Lily.

It's not just certain physical similarities which lead him to this musing conclusion. Certainly, both beauties happen to have a penchant for mystical animal companions, and longbows that would intimidate warriors thrice their size. But even more plainly, they share the uncanny composure of young women who grow up with a wilderness just outside their door (or teepee, as the case may be). Hook can easily imagine Liya facing dismal odds with the same regal stoicism that Tiger Lily has often displayed. Unflinching in sight of ravenous beasts and reddened blades. Accepting her fate, yet defiant of the one who executes it. Ready to plunge into the spirit world, so on and so forth.

Yet because he guesses that Liya, like the chief's daughter, has been subjected to an abnormal amount of violence for her years, Hook can't help but fantasize about shattering that hard-earned composure. He is the consummate villain, after all. And while torturing the immature Tiger Lily is to him purely a matter of necessity (she frequently aids and abets Pan, the wily savage), applying these same methods to Liya would excite him on a most visceral level. To tear down her illusions and her defenses, one by one; to see the priestess lose her precious faith; to hear her beg a pirate's mercy, and as a reward, be ravished in body and mind ...

Ah, but our villain has no solidified plans to act on this fantasy. He values few things above an opportunity to ruin and ravish, but the friendship of Edmond Dantes is one of these things. So Hook is content to merely converse with the lovely Liya, as if he were just another gentleman philosopher-turned-sailor. Though he knows she knows he is anything but. On his word as a pirate, then, he will never so much as lay the edge of his hook on the Count's beloved wife.

But every now and again, he pictures Liya clothed in Tiger Lily's doeskins, her hair braided and feathered, her face darkened with war-paint. He envisions her trussed up for sacrifice, bound not to a burning pyre, but the foot of his bed. And he strokes the edge of his hook, and smiles.

*raises eyebrow*

Interesting but no, not offended... At least I'm not. lol. Liya would not be happy but ah well, the fun of meta.

*g* I'm glad it didn't offend. I know it was rather off the cuff, but I just have this idea that he's gonna respond to all of these with what-I'd-REALLY-like-to-do-to-you scenarios. I mean, he's usually relatively restrained with his fellow pups around here (I don't think many would go near him if he wasn't!)

And yeah, it's definitely a good thing Liya can't really read it, because she'd probably toss Hook to the crocodile, or let Tsali trample him, or something. Now, just wait till we get to the Count's... :D
