Dreamwidth has arrived. Are you feeling abandoned and alone? Have half of your friends suddenly jumped ship?

There's only one way to fix that:

Re: NAY. THOU ART DULLER THAN MY SCIENCE TEACHER.
Oh, and when you're done, you can run over to my icon comm and snag yourself some Fountainhead icons I made just for you.

...Yeah, I couldn't find any good pictures of Ellsworth. If you find any, though, I'll pretty much do the best I can with black and white photos.
Which would be not good at all lol. /shot

FA.

I THINK I LOVE YOU.

IN A PURELY PLATONIC, NON-RANDIAN WAY.

BUT OH MY GOD A;SDLGH;ALSDKHGLASD;HG

AND THAT ROARK/DOMINIQUE ICON IS SO FUCKING GORGEOUS. ASLDKGH;

Eeeee, thanks for the offer! I've got the movie on my laptop, so I could totally take some screencaps if you need them~

OH, IT'S NOT POSSIBLE TO LOVE ME IN A PLATONIC, NON-RANDIAN WAY. NOT WITH YOU, AT LEAST.

I wanted to do Atlas Shrugged, but I got lazy... and there weren't enough pictures. /shot

TO YOUTUBE I SHALL GO. I WATCHED THE PART WHERE DOMINIQUE SLAPS ROARK WITH HER WHIP OF INDIGNATION.
THE GUY LOOKS LIKE A TOOHEY, ANYWAY. I DON'T THINK ANYONE ELSE COULD HAVE BEEN HIM, AT LEAST AS FAR AS APPEARANCES GO.

/SLAP!
I WAS LAUGHING THE WHOLE TIME SHE RODE BACK TO HER MANSION.
AND I'M TRYING TO WATCH THE MOVIE ON YOUTUBE. WTF HAPPENED TO HENRY CAMERON? I IMAGINED SOME OLD, FAT GUY. OH WELL, AT LEAST NEAL IS PRETTY MUCH WHAT I IMAGINED DOMINIQUE TO BE. AND THE PETER IS PRETTY OK.

QUITE SO. HE IS A STUNNING TOOHEY, TO BE SURE: HE OOZES BASTARDRY OUT OF EVERY PORE.

/SLAPPED!
I KNOW, RIGHT? IT'S A DOWNRIGHT EPIC SCENE; YOU KNOW IT IS.
THEY TURNED CAMERON INTO A SOBBING, WEAK, DODDERING OLD MAN. I'D BE MAD ABOUT IT IF I'D CARED ABOUT HIM TO BEGIN WITH. BUT YES, THEY AT LEAST GOT DOMINIQUE AND PETER RIGHT. I ACTUALLY LOVE NEAL'S PERFORMANCE: HER DOMINIQUE IS BOTH TORMENTED AND CRAZY~

OUT OF EVERY PORE? MORE LIKE OUT OF EVERY SECOND, LINE, AND ACTION

/RIDES AWAY ON HORSE
ASIDE FROM TOOHEY'S FACE AFTER THE "BUT I DON'T THINK OF YOU", IT'S PRETTY MUCH THE GREATEST THING EVER.
BUT NOT FAT OR DRUNK OR DISORDERLY. DAMN. OH WELL, AT LEAST DOMINIQUE, PETER, AND TOOHEY ARE PERFECT.
KNOWING RAND, TORMENTED AND CRAZY IS PROBABLY JUST WHAT SHE WAS AIMING FOR.

CLOSE ENOUGH! I TOLD YOU HE WAS AN INSPIRATION TO BASTARDS EVERYWHERE~

/GLARES AFTER YOU
I DUNNO, I THOUGHT HE SEEMED A BIT TOO MOPEY THERE. OF COURSE, HE MORE THAN MADE UP FOR IT WITH EVERY ONE OF HIS LINES.
TRUE ENOUGH! DOMINIQUE, PETER, AND TOOHEY WERE PRETTY MUCH THE ONLY CHARACTERS I CARED ABOUT, ANYWAY.
I'VE ALWAYS THOUGHT THERE WAS SOMETHING VERY MARY SUE-ISH ABOUT DOMINIQUE (AND DAGNY, FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH). YOU'RE PROBABLY RIGHT. WOE.

PRETTY MUCH JUST THE FILM TOOHEY. THE BOOK TOOHEY IS STILL BORING ME AND I'M PAGE 584.

/MUAHAHA
REALLY? I LOVED THE MOPEY-NESS. IT WAS PROBABLY THE MOST EMOTION SHOWN IN THE ENTIRE MOVIE.
B-BUT WHAT ABOUT MIKE AND STEVE? I WOULD PERSONALLY LIKE TO SEE MIKE RUNNING AROUND CALLING GARY COOPER "RED" AND STEVE JUMPING OUT FROM NOWHERE WITH A GUN WHILE NEEDLESSLY MELODRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYS IN THE BACKGROUND.
DOMINIQUE IS MORE OF A MARY SUE TO ME THAN DAGNY. I NEVER REALLY THOUGHT OF DAGNY AS BEING BEAUTIFUL, JUST STICK-THIN TO A POINT OF UNATTRACTIVENESS; CONTRARIWISE, RAND SEEMS TO BE CONTINUALLY FEEDING US HOW COLDLY PERFECT AND BEAUTIFUL DOMINIQUE IS.

/SEETHES
AHAHA! SAD BUT TRUE. COOPER'S ROARK IS DISTURBINGLY WOODEN, ESPECIALLY SINCE BOOK!ROARK'S WHOLE SCHTICK IS THAT HE SHAMELESSLY LOVES LIFE IN ALL ITS ASPECTS.
THAT WOULD BE PRETTY HILARIOUS. THE SOUNDTRACK IS MELODRAMATIC ENOUGH AS IT IS~
I'M INCLINED TO AGREE. THE WHOLE MASOCHISM THING ASIDE, DOMINIQUE IS DESCRIBED AS ROARK'S PERFECT PRIESTESS, AND IT'S PRETTY CLEAR THAT RAND SAW HERSELF AS SOMETHING OF THAT SORT.

I PERSONALLY THINK HE TALKS WAY TOO MUCH FOR ROARK. THIS IS ROARK WE'RE TALKING ABOUT HERE.
I KNOW, RIGHT? I MEAN, WYNAND'S JUST WALKING TO THE DOOR AND THE SOUNDTRACK IS SPILLING ITS MELODRAMATIC GUTS ALL OVER THE BACKGROUND.
PRIESTESS. I'LL NEVER GET THAT, REALLY. ALL I KNOW IS THAT DAGNY IS PERHAPS MORE OF A MASOCHIST THAN DOMINIQUE, IF BONDAGE IS ABOVE SELF-PROCLAIMED RAPE.

OF COURSE NOT. YOU'RE AS HONEST AS GEORGE WASHINGTON.

/SENDS FAT ITALIAN TO FIX IT
VERY TRUE! ROARK BARELY SAYS TWO FULL SENTENCES UNTIL THE END OF THE BOOK, WHERE HE LAUNCHES INTO A 30-PAGE RANT.
IT'S ALMOST EMBARRASSING TO WATCH. IT'S EXACTLY THE KIND OF MUSIC THAT RICHARD HALLEY WOULD DESPISE.
RAND WAS A BIT UNHINGED: LAST I CHECKED, THE SUPREME EGOIST WAS NOT A GOD.
WAIT WAIT WAIT. BONDAGE?! OH SWEET GOD, WHY AM I NOT SURPRISED?

30-PAGE RANT? MY, HOW SHORT. I HOPE YOU DON'T THINK THAT'S LONG, BECAUSE YOU AIN'T SEEN NOTHING YET. WOULD I LIE TO YOU ABOUT RAND'S INFAMOUS OBJECTIVIST RANTS? ACTUALLY, NO. NO ONE DESERVES TO BE SUBJECTED TO THAT. EXCEPT FOR NINA.
OH, 1940s BACKGROUND MUSIC~ YOU'RE SLAPPING HALLEY IN THE FACE!
ACCORDING TO HER, THEY ARE GOD IN HUMAN FORM, AND WE SHOULD BOW DOWN TO THEM. DO IT NOW.
YES, BONDAGE. I DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW MANY TIMES I'VE SAID, "RIDICULOUS BONDAGE SCENE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE BOOK OR SO". WAIT A MINUTE, WHERE WERE YOU WHEN I SAID THAT OVER AND OVER?! I'VE BEEN WARNING YOU FOR AGES! ALSKJTATJ;

/FLEES AT THE SIGHT OF YOU
WH-WHY WOULD SHE DO THAT?! IT'S NOT LIKE HER PHILOSOPHY IS PARTICULARLY COMPLEX. MASSIVE MONOLOGUES AREN'T NECESSARY!
HALLEY DESERVED IT, I'M SURE. SPEAKING OF ATLAS SHRUGGED, I JUST FINISHED THE BIT WITH REARDEN'S ANNIVERSARY PARTY (YES, I'M ONLY THAT FAR), AND ALL THE EXISTENTIALIST AND POST-MODERN PROFESSORS MADE ME LAUGH. RAND REALLY HATED EVERYONE, DIDN'T SHE?
ARE YOU HAPPY, MR. SUPERMAN?
EITHER I WASN'T PAYING ATTENTION ANY OF THOSE TIMES OR I'VE JUST REPRESSED THE MEMORIES. THE FRANCISCO/DAGNY ROMP-IN-THE-FIELD WAS EMBARRASSING ENOUGH TO READ; I CAN ONLY IMAGINE HOW AWKWARD THE BONDAGE SCENE WILL BE.

TO MAKE YOU SUFFER, THAT'S WHY. YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE SUCH FUN READING GALT'S MASSIVE 56-PAGE-YET-SEEMS-SO-MUCH-LONGER RANT - ON THE RADIO. IT APPARENTLY TAKES HIM THREE HOURS TO SAY IT. IT TAKES YOU LONGER TO READ IT.
BUT I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR HIS CLASSICAL MUSIC. MELODRAMA IS ANNOYING. 8| WHAT PAGE ARE YOU ON AGAIN? IS THAT WHEN DAGNY TAKES THAT BRACELET OF REARDEN METAL? AND YES, SHE HATED EVERYONE. JUST LIKE ME~ /SHOT
THIS.
...AHA. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. YOU HATED THE FRANCISCO/DAGNY ROMP? WAIT TILL THE BONDAGE SCENE ROLLS ROUND. IT'S PROBABLY NOT OBVIOUS, BUT WHEN YOU LOOK IT UP, IT SUDDENLY BECOMES GLARINGLY, GLARINGLY OBVIOUS. I'M ACTUALLY PRETTY SAD I HAD A FAINT IDEA WHAT WAS GOING ON.
LISTEN TO ME WHEN I WARN YOU ABOUT THE SEX SCENES, DAMN YOU. AT HER WORST, DAGNY WOULD PROBABLY DELIGHT IN SEXUAL ASPHYXIATION. SHE WOULD SLEEP WITH YOU IF YOU BANGED HER HEAD AGAINST A CONCRETE WALL AND THEN ASKED HER TO.

SHE IS A SLUT. SHE GETS IT ON WITH FRANCISCO, HANK, AND SHE ALMOST GETS IT ON WITH- WAIT, THAT'S A SPOILER. SHE PRETTY MUCH TRIES TO SLEEP WITH FOUR MEN AND SHE SUCCEEDS WITH THREE OF THEM. AND YES, ALL OF THOSE RELATIONSHIPS WERE MASOCHISTIC.
