sarasusa: (Gushoushin from Yami no Matsuei by Yoko)
[personal profile] sarasusa
Gack'd from [ profile] fish_are_evil, though it's popped up in several other folks' journals sinceā€¦

Leave a list of fictional characters in your journal that you would love to get a message from. It is your friends-list's mission, should they choose to accept it, to write you an in-character "letter" from a character on that list. Then they post their own list in their journal and the process continues!

1) Fflewddur Fflam or Gurgi (Lloyd Alexander, Chronicles of Prydain)
2) Treebeard or Gandalf (J. R. R. Tolkien, Lord of the Rings)
3) Saki Hanajima, Tohru Honda, or Momiji, Hatsuharu, Shigure or Hiro Sohma (Natsuki Takaya, Fruits Basket)
4) Mr. Yotsuya or Mrs. Ichinose (Rumiko Takahashi, Maison Ikkoku)

From: [identity profile]
You just said: "my laundry is...kinda dirty."

Ah, no, young sis! You are too simple. Why, you might have said - Oh, a great many things! Mon dieu, why waste your opportunity? For example, thus: -

AGGRESSIVE: I, sis, if that laundry were mine, I'd have it burned - on the spot!

FRIENDLY: How do you breathe with such dirty laundry? You ought to have an oxygen mask made specially.

DESCRIPTIVE: 'Tis a hillock - a mount - a mount? Say rather, an Everest!

INQUISITIVE: What is that pile - A tarpaulin or a circus tent?

KINDLY: Ah, do you hate your little cat so much that you when he comes and purrs to you, you give him *this* to lie upon?

INSOLENT: Sis, when your laundry smells, the neighbors must suppose something died in your apartment.

CAUTIOUS: Take care - A stench like that might make you faint.

THOUGHTFUL: Somebody fetch my hand cart - Her delicate back might strain under the weight!

PENDANTIC: Does not Aristophanes mention a mythological monster called Stinkolaundriobadfumogrossoutalus?

ENTERPRISING: What a sign for some washerwoman!

LYRIC: Hark - The drapings of Aphrodite cast off to show her perfect form.

SIMPLE: Oh...did they already unveil the monument?

RESPECTFUL: Sis, I recognize in you a woman of style, a woman of fashion.

RUSTIC: Hey! What? Call that laundry? Na Na - I be no fool like what you think I be - That there's a pile of manure!

(more thanks to Rostand and Hooker than to me...)
