Please don't cut clips. Gemini12590 doesn't like it any better on this account than on her main one :) Continue reading....

READ!!! [Mild Spoilers for RA & TSFT]

Hey everybody, I'm the girl that's also known as Gemini12590.

This new video is basically about Pippa and how she slowly becomes corrupted by her time in the Realms. I tried to leave the ending ambiguous but if you haven't read TSFT, I highly suggest you DON'T watch this! I don't want anyone complaining to me that I "spoiled" the book for them.

In an attempt to avoid confusion, I'll try to address some questions in FAQ style (cause its fun that way ;) )

OMG! Is there a movie coming out for these books?
Yes. Sometime in 2008/2009. And no, these little movies that I do are my own creation for the characters. I am not affiliated with Charles Sturridge or Libba Bray so I don't know anything else about the movie.

Do you take requests?
No. Although I have enjoyed all the ones I have made so far, I just don't have the time to do all of them.

Where are THESE clips from?
I was surfing the net when I stumbled upon this ridiculous but endearing 1985 fantasy tale called LEGEND. It's cheesy, but the beautiful scenery just screamed REALMS! (and Winterlands) to me.

What's the song called?
"Bring me to Life", by Evanescence

Cool vid, but wait... I don't recall any of this happening in the books? What's with the ring, the necklace, the evil dancing?
Told you this was cheesy, didn't I? Please don't try to overanalyze the clips and match them to the novels. You'll give yourself a headache trying to find the original source. I take a little bit of creative license in my vids - I'm simply trying to capture the general mood and plot of the story - ie. Pippa becomes corrupted, as her OTT wicked queen costume shows. The beautiful meadows = realms & the snow/ice storm = winterlands.

Why is Pip dressed like a medieval princess?
It's an allusion to The Lady of Shalot poem frequently mentioned in AGATB. Plus, thats the costume the girl was wearing.

It's ok but that girl looks too (young/plain/etc) to play Pippa?
Everyone is entitled to their opinion but remember that beauty is subjective. So please don't feel compelled to comment on how much you dislike the actress because frankly, it doesn't matter. This girl is about 20 yrs too old to play Pippa now, anyway. So its a moot point.

OMG! I just read TSFT and I can't believe that ********!
I just finished the book, too. However, thats not true for everyone. So please refrain from spoiling the plot. Even if you put a "spoiler" in front, I guarantee you someone's gonna read it anyway. I know its a pain and I'm very sorry but I've seen this happen before. People don't read my warnings and then they get pissed because someone "ruined" the book for them. Again, my apologies for the inconvenience :)

Ok, hope you enjoy the vid. I think I covered everything but if there are any questions I missed, feel free to let me know. I do not profit off of anything and this is all in fun! :D
