Is the "Demmed Elusive" community in hibernation?

Hello all,
I haven't visited the page for a long time myself, but no-one seems to have posted anything to Demmed Elusive for ages. Is it dormant? Or dead? I hope not - I was enjoying it!

I wrote this REVIEW of "THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL", the 1982 television adaptation of Baroness Emmuska Orczy de Orczi's 1905 novel. Directed by Clive Donner, the movie starred Anthony Andrews, Jane Seymour and Ian McKellen.

Scarlet Pimpernel Sequels (Books)

Hi Everyone,

I'm so glad I found and joined this community! I've been obsessed with The Scarlet Pimpernel ever since I saw the rather disliked A and E version. I shamelessly enjoyed it so I went and read the book. My Mum found the DVD a few years back and bought it as a family present, and somewhat ironically, seeings as that version is wildly inaccurate to the book, I still shamelessly enjoy it. Old loves die hard and all of that.

Also, Martin Shaw as Chauvelin was one of my first ever childhood actor terrors. He was a terrifying villain because he was so smart but also so conflicted. I really liked that element of the A and E version. Well, to be honest I like all of it. It's not remotely accurate to the books but there's just something about it that I love in an AU fan fic kind of way.

Anyway, I just discovered that the sequel books are free on kindle and I am reading them in published order. I am up to The Elusive Pimpernel. I am just wondering which books in the series are everyone's favourites?

Also, I know that the Chauvelin/Marguerite/Sir Percy triangle was inserted into the films later, but I kind of would love to know how Marguerite met Chauvelin and got involved with him romantically in the context of the 80s and 90s versions. Has anyone written any fan fic of this?

Thank you :)

Challenge me!

Not meaning to sound massively egotistical - a la Armand in Eldorado (me! me! me!) - but I have just returned to the Pimpernel fold after a weary leave of absence of, ooh, two years or so (betraying the Baroness with Jane Austen, I'm afraid). I have been easing myself back into the fandom, with a viewing of the 1934 film and a re-re-re-re-reading of Eldorado on Kindle (woot! for House of Stratus!), but would love to sink my teeth into writing more fan fiction.

However, I'm totally stuck for inspiration, so any ideas are welcome, please! Have you a certain scene, or pairing, or perspective, that you would like to read about? (I know fresh SP plot bunnies are a rare breed!) The more 'out there', or non-purist, the better - yes, I'm being daring! I have dabbled with smut!fic, character death, first person, etc., in the past, so anything goes.

I can't promise you will love what I produce, but I would love to start writing SP stories again.

OBC Video?

Good evening,

I know it's rude to show up and ask for something, but I'm at my wits end. I've never seen the Broadway version of Pimpernel, only the movie, and I'm dying to see it. Would anyone happen to know of a way that is possible? I've only found recordings in bootleg trading communities, and I have nothing to offer. (Never much of a trader, and the little I had died with MegaUpload.)

Thought if anyone might know, you folks would be a good place to start. You could gain a Philadelphian's undying devotion.

HELP: Fan fic and the resources of an icon

Hi guys,
I've been a member of this community for quite some time now, but never actually posted anything to this community. So let's properly introduce myself first. I'm Lisa, twenty years of age and I live in the Netherlands. I'm a big fan of the books, movies and musical versions of the Pimpernel. I'm collecting as many stuff there is around, like icons, images, fanfiction, etcetera.
I hope you can help me out with two things..

I've read some Pimpernel related fanfiction a while ago, and I really liked a certain story. I don't remember the name of it or anything, normally I save fanfictions I like to my favourites, but it turns out that this time I didn't. It's set during The Scarlet Pimpernel, where Percy has a nightmare: Marguerite dies on the guillotine. Afraid that this might be true, he rushes to Marguerite's bedchamber; where he finds her sleeping. She awakes and shocked by his grief, she tells him the whole true story about the denouncement of the Marquis de St. Cyr, and they reconcile. I can't find it anymore, perhaps you know where I can find it?

Plus, some time ago, I saved this icon to my harddrive:

I would love to have the original image of this, to use it in a new Pimpernel wallpaper of mine. I've contacted the very talented person who made this (I believe it was lady boromir) some time ago, but she didn't have it anymore and advised me to ask here. I decided to search further before asking your help, it'd be foolish to ask for help when there's a possibility it's laughing me in the face without me knowing it. It turns out it's not easy to find, so I hope someone in this community has it. Could anyone tell me where I can find it, or could anyone send it to me?

I really hope you can help me out. Mostly I'm after the image used in the icon, but any help is more than welcome! Thanks in advance, and it's a pleasure to be a member of such a great community!
