The title of this journal is my tribute to Claude, one of my all time favorite characters, who is currently MIA for an indefinite period of time. While I will always adore the Ninth Doctor, Claude captivates me to no end. I am a fan of Christopher Eccleston. Yes, I'll watch anything that he's in; he's just that good! (Ironically enough, a large chunk of his projects I'd check out anyway. The fact that he's involved just makes it that much more enjoyable.) The banner and titles are my tribute to the currently MIA Claude and my own weird way of letting him know he's missed. The Graphic Novel shot I snagged from lovely 2 part GN (issue 109 Sum Quod Sum part 2 art by Jason Badower and colors by Annette Kwok) and the episode cap is from "Distractions" and was in the Smugmug Gallery once upon a time. And yes, the icon with the tattoo of Claude is a real tattoo and it's really on me.



My Myspace My wallpaper there had a nice shot of Chris as Claude that I found online, but I forget where. Can't really see it with the new format.

99% Heroes related, and Claude related by extension.

I sometimes do an RP parody blog over at Burnt Toast Diner as a ditsy caricaturized version of myself but now I use that blog Spreading the Cards as a fan and life blog as the Cafe folded for a bit and there are a lot of folks I chat with on Blogger these days.

I am Twitter as Tarot1.

I am also on Facebook here.


I do have a secondary Journal for my RP stuff at tarotsolitaire so if you're one of my RP pals, the stuff you're likely looking for is over there though you are more than welcome to friend and read this journal too.

Custom mood theme for Live Journal: Christopher Eccleston- by seekingwords

Please be advised that quite a few of the entries in this journal are adult in nature and are marked accordingly.

Initially, this all started with nine_love. I was looking for Nine and Chris on the internet: pics, stories, films, anything, and everything. I found nine_love in August 2006. I got tired of lurking, in October 2006, and decided I wanted to converse with the nice folks there as well as post. Now, I am a member of several communities on LJ, including eccleston_fans, claude_nine, heroes_claude, eccleston_love and ecclescult just to name a few...



I also joined here: The Invisible Man - The Claude Rains Fanlisting

As for myself, I read Tarot cards among other unusual talents. I have weird dreams (no joke) and I'm an 11-7 shift RN on a long term/hospice floor (kinda like one of the Heroes). It has it's moments but some nights I feel like I'm in a rut like a certain London shop girl was...

I've been a Whovian since I was 4 &1/2 and I've seen all of the Doctors. The Ninth Doctor is one of my favorites, though I've been keen on the lat 4 recent ones as well. The first Doctor I ever saw was the Fourth Doctor and I was fortunate enough to meet Tom Baker when I was 12. Also met Colin Baker at the time as well. I was a fan of Heroes since the pilot and I absolutely adore Claude (Peter and Hiro are my favorites after him). Please, do not try "convert" me to any of your slash ships involving Claude. Beyond the fact that I do not find them in character at all, I have a great many personal reasons for being quite adverse to them. Maybe, if you are a close enough friend, I will tell you the whole story...

On a lighter note, once I saw this existed, I hadda do it, even though it's "domestic":



(OK does he carry me across the threshold, or does he toss me off the roof?)



(Hadda to add a new pic and a new entry now that we know his last name, well, sort of...)

Decided to do this as well:


Why not? He's cool.

Yes I'm a shameless fan girl so...like this is a bad thing? It keeps me happy and it keeps me going. Someone once wrote "Shoot for the stars; you may not reach your goal but you'll go further than if you never reached at all." I also took the 9th Doctor obsession test. Here's my results:

Took this test a whila ago and got:
You’re 98.49624% obsessed with the Ninth Doctor and Doctor Who!

It’s official! You have no life. Or rather, your life revolves around the fandom of Doctor Who and the Ninth Doctor. Which is something to be proud about, not ashamed of. Congratulations!



Yes, I know I'm obsessed. I do not deny this.(See comments above after "Shameless Fangirl")

As for me physically, I'm big (size 2-3X), attitude wise, I'm bad (mischevious not evil), and I'm from Wolfeboro... 'nuff said as to why the screen name. This is me:

rpgwho is where I RPG as tracethenurse and yes, before you ask, she is based on me. You might wonder why. Well, I've always wanted to be a companion (even more so once I started watching 9) and I was taking the advice of one Samuel Clemens "Write about what you know."



Fair warning,while some of this journal is G rated, a good bit of it isn't. Posts are marked accordingly and nearly everything is behind LJ cuts.

This is what I do when I'm bored; graphics work...

(Yet more lovely caps from Heroes GN 109 Sum Quod Sum. Artist Jason Badower, colors by Annette Kwok, seriously go read it. Oliver Grigsby did the script writing on that one and 108.)
