Strangers on a Train pamphlet by [livejournal.com profile] aimai3
• quote from Strangers on a Train, the original novel, by Patricia Highsmith (read it, people!)

ABOUT

I was actually planning on making 3 walls, but the other two are being difficult and i didn't want to wait, so there.

Also, careful, Bruno staring at you may cause an involuntary but irresistible urge to stare back.
For hours. Without blinking. (trust me, i know what i'm talking about. i swear my eyes will go dry and fall off before i can stop staring)

Finally, STRANGERS ON A TRAIN, people. Come on.

it's funny that you say "like a girl" because it's in the quote as well :) but it's the character, not nino! lol
Thank you for commenting, i'm happy you like it :D

Nino as Charles Bruno was one of the best things to happen in fandom. Too bad it's stayed so underrated *sobs*

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
YOU'RE SPOILING US, AND WHILE IT MAY SEEM UNHEALTHY IN THE EYES OF OTHERS, I AM WELCOMING IT BECAUSE OH MY, THIS WALLPAPER IS WONDROUS BEYOND WORDS. THIS WARRANTS A SHOUT FROM THE TOP OF THE ROOF: I LOVE YOU, KAREN, IT'S TRUE.

Eeeee I was looking through your scrapbook yesterday & noticed this wallpaper immediately and the instant reaction was *____* while thinking to myself, "Is she not going to share this? :'D" w-which as you can see, caused me to go a liiiitle crazy right there in the previous paragraph :'D

THANK YOU. You are incredible ♥

ps. Who are you in love with? :3

I know what it is.




You work magic.

YOU ♥

Okay, first, it is not spoiling, I made it for myself first (as you very subtly pointed out), I wasn't really thinking about anyone else, so if I'm spoiling someone here, it's me!
Second, THANK YOU, I AM REALLY HAPPY YOU LIKE IT.
AND I LOVE YOU TOO ♥

Ahah, you follow my scrapbook?? That makes me happy! :D Although you're probably the only one u_u

Thank YOU. You are, as usual and always, so good to me ;_; *clings*

ps: must you ask? <3


(AND YES, MAGIC, EXACTLY. BECAUSE I AM A YOUNG BOY IN A LAND OF MYTHS AND A TIME OF MAGIC AND I DRINK TEA WITH SLASH DRAGONS. GO WATCH MERLIN BEFORE TALKING ABOUT MAGIC, WOMAN)

I don't know how but you make me save his wallpapers (and use them!) even though he's not my favourite. ;3 ♥ I love how dark and simple it is.

From: [identity profile] yay-box.livejournal.com
this picture is mesmerizing, favourite or not :p but your comment makes me happy! Thank you! <3 dark and simple is a must when working on SoaT.

Thanks to you I read this book! But I didn't like Polish translation at some points so now I'm looking for the original.

From: [identity profile] yay-box.livejournal.com
You've read it? Yay! Isn't it brilliant? I first read it in French, and bought the English version after that because I wanted the original text as well. It's worth it! :D

I really really liked it! :D I think I will have to order it from abroad because so far I haven't seen it anywhere here, eh.

Ooh pretty. *stares* Thank you. I can see how this staring thing is dangerous. *still staring*

Date: May 15th, 2010 08:19 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] yay-box.livejournal.com
you're very welcome. do be careful though, it is dangerous indeed, right? i've been using it since i've made it and i'm pretty sure i already wasted a few hours staring at it and being stupid and besotted.

Unfortunately my computer died about an hour ago so I haven't been able to stare infatuatedly for a while. I think I'm experiencing withdrawl. Thank goodness for smartphones so I can distract myself with tiny pictures and tiny keys.

From: [identity profile] goldfreckled.livejournal.com
Fascinating, definitely.
I took a look at the scans and I think what you did with the picture is very impressive. I like how it looks very un-Nino-ish (might be the hair-cut and the shadows - I thought it was Aiba or Sho at first).

The quote is very well chosen. I've had "Strangers on a train" lying around for a while now and now I feel really inspired and motivated to read it.

Beautiful work. ♥

Thank you so very much for your comment. I like that you said it looks un-Nino-ish, because, technically, this is Charles Bruno, not Nino, so it makes sense. And saying that you feel motivated to read the book now makes me really, really happy! It is an amazing book, the characters are simply fascinating and it honestly surprises me that, even with Nino playing such an obviously interesting character, fandom seems to have taken close to no interest in the original story at all. So, if you feel like reading the book after seeing this wall, nothing could make me happier :)

Thank you again, very much :) (oh and, of course, thank you for your compliments on the wall itself, I'm happy you like it! :) )

Argh! This is so brilliant. Really. Perfect quote. I feel like reading the book all over again and I haven't even finished it yet!

Now I have to choose between this and jumping More Nino. SO HARD. If I have time to finally sit down and finish SoaT this weekend I'm sure Bruno will win out. Plus you have more?!

Thank you.♥

asdlkfjasd Just noticed your Gantz icon. Are you gonna make us some icons too? *bats eyelashes*

From: [identity profile] yay-box.livejournal.com
Finish it first! :p Then you'll want to read it again (that's what I did, and then I bought it in English and re-read again to be able to feel the original text, not some maybe-not-so-accurate translation)

Ahah, sorry. Chosing between Nino being Nino in More and Nino being Bruno is, indeed, tough.

I do have more in the making, but they are being difficult, and they are not as pretty, in the sense that this picture is the epitome of gorgeousness so, consequently, other walls with other scans won't be as mesmerizing as this one. But I'll try to finish them soon!

You are very welcome, dear, thank you for being so good to me ♥

Ahhh, well, I made this one because the screencap was easy and obvious, but i'm bad at taking screencaps, so i don't know if i'll be able to make more :x you can use this one if you like it, though :D

Ahah, seems only fair that your first time would be Bruno. But! first time taking! eee-h, I'm so happy!! :D Thank you very, very much! ♥

Yaay!! You're very welcome, glad to see that someone uses the bigger sizes! I started making them because some people required them once or twice and just kept it up after that, so it's good to see that it's still useful! :D Thank you for your comment!
