Queen Edith’s death caused the breakdown of the royal family. In the course of one night, she’d gone from a loving mother to an emotionless shell of her former self. Aside from King Gunther, only three people – the midwife, the captain of the guard, and the newly appointed chancellor Valberg – knew what really happened the night Hans was born, and they were sworn to...

King Gunther paced the floor of his study for what he felt must be the hundredth time. All his thoughts were with his beloved wife on the other side of the castle right now, giving birth to their fifteenth child. He almost laughed at the irony… all his money and power could never give his queen the one thing she always wanted, a daughter. A sharp knock at the door roused him from his thoughts, and the captain of the guard barged in, He said something, but only one word stuck in the king’s mind: dying. All he could think was, [i]Am I hearing this...

Within the first few years of King Gunther and Queen Edith’s marriage, two daughters were born, neither of whom survived infancy. The first was Angeline, their angel child. He knew there was something wrong the moment he stepped into the room. His wife sobbed, but for some odd reason, the blanketed bundle in her arms did not. The king saw blonde curls and a cherubic round face peeking out from under the blanket, a face that he couldn’t help notice was unnaturally pale. The baby’s eyes were tightly closed, and at first he thought she was sleeping… until the midwife pulled him aside and whispered the words that shattered his heart, “I’m sorry, Your Majesty; she’s stillborn.”

For three years, King Gunther ruled with cold detachment, rarely venturing beyond the walls of his castle. His advisors still hissed in his ear, offering their unwanted criticism and disapproval at every opportunity. They still belittled and condescended to him, still ignored his orders, but more than anything else, they still complained at having him in power. He was surprised they hadn’t tried to assassinate him yet… he didn’t put it past them! He had become so suspicious of his advisors that he now carried a knife with him at all times, just in case they got any ideas. Gunther was only half listening as the advisors’ voices droned on. They pestered him to spend more time outside the palace getting to know his kingdom, to marry a worthy woman and produce heirs to the throne. Although he tried to ignore their constant carping, he eventually caved to their demands and agreed to host a ball.

Alan as King Gunther, a character I created for him to portray when he was still alive (sorry for the bad photoshop job!)
[i]Preface

The one word I see used more than any other to describe Alan Rickman in the various tributes from his fans and co-stars is generous, and even without truly knowing him, that is something I can attest to. To the entertainment world he gave a wide range of insightful and sympathetic performances. To the Harry Potter fandom he gave life to one of the series’ most iconic characters, but to me he gave something else too – the most important life lesson I’ve ever known.

Alan is the reason I learned to put myself in another’s shoes. He had a tremendous capacity for empathy and the rare talent of seeing the good qualities in others that shined through absolutely in his craft. In the fifteen years I followed his work, I never heard or read him disparage or judge any of the characters he portrayed, regardless of their moral alignment, and he brought the same level of dignity and respect to a role such as Hans Gruber or Judge Turpin as he did to Professor Snape or Colonel Brandon. He not only made me understand his characters but he made me want to understand them and inspired me to apply that desire for understanding to people in real...

Legendary British actor Alan Rickman passed away on the 14th of January this year
So time got down to business yet again and did what he does best. If taking away one of Earth's most loved mortals was not good enough, time swooped to take away three, in only a short while. As you all will know, Alan Rickman, David Bowie and Glen Frey all bade farewell to their physical selves to take up a place in the more ethereal world in the last ten days or so.

Every single one of these iconic gentlemen were mammoths in their own right. While two were fabled musicians, one was an actor renowned all over the world for his awesome talent and job dropping screen presence. While I truly admire each and every single one of these great individuals, I will have to admit that I'll be concentrating on only one of them in this article.


Alan Rickman is that gentleman and the only reason why I will focus on him today is because I know more about him than I do about the other two men who succumbed to the hands of death over the last fortnight. With respect to Alan Rickman however, I will not spend the length of this article remembering him or any particular role of his. In fact, what I would like to do is remind members of today's...

Veteran actor Alan Rickman has passed away of cancer at age 69. Besides portraying the roles of Hans Gruber in Die Hard and Severus Snape in the Harry Potter movies, he has been known for playing the negative roles in many films in the British film industry, including Galaxy Quest, Snow Cake, and Sweeney Todd.

Its not mine i didn't create i found it all the credits go to link


1.Ask Alan Rickman to autograph a body part.

2. Follow him around town like a crazed fan. Finally ask him, "Are you really Alan Rickman?" When he says yes, say, "Oh, I thought you were someone else," and walk away.

3. Tell him how sexy his pinky finger is.

4. Pinch his butt. Then act like he pinched you.

5. Run after him screaming, "Daddy!"

6. Walk up to him with a huge chemistry textbook and say, "Professor Snape? Can you please help me with my Potions homework?"

7. Instead of asking him to autograph a picture or DVD, ask him to autograph a sanitary napkin. (Hee hee hee...)

8. Ask him, "Can I smell your underwear?" (If any one of you actually does this, please let me know the full details of the ensuing conversation!)

Ah, the obligatory obsession page that seems to be on every Alan Rickman fanpage. Well, I got one too! Any contributions? Email them to me here. Anyway, you know you're obsessed with Alan Rickman when...

1. You try to act and dress like Snape, even though you're a girl.

2. Every time you start to type a word beginning with A or R, you accidentally type Alan or Rickman.

3. Spoons hold a special meaning for you.

4. All of your conversations manage to find their way to the topic of Alan.

5. You buy Die Hard 3 for the sole reason of owning a two second archive footage of Alan falling off of the building.

6. It's not enough to run one webpage dedicated to Alan Rickman. You must have at least three.

7. Alan's fanmail agency has a special file folder labelled with your name.

Article by Amy Brantley


There are literally thousands of Alan Rickman fans, and why not? He’s a great actor, constantly supports charities, has a great accent, and to top it off he’s sexy. Alan Rickman is one of Britain’s finest actors. His acting ability is amazing, though you don’t see him in a lot of movies because he prefers to do plays. Alan Rickman is probably best known for his part as Snape in the Harry Potter movies, but he’s done other movies that are just as good, such a Die Hard and Robinhood: Prince of Thieves. With all those Alan Rickman fans out there, there has to be some great gift ideas, right? Being an Alan Rickman fan myself, I am always looking for Alan Rickman merchandise and have come up with a top ten list on the best gifts to give Alan Rickman fans.

    It was Sunday night, and of course, it was raining really hard. Just like it would on any other disaster night. I guess my situation wouldn’t be considered a disaster. I mean when you compare my situation to a hurricane somewhere, where many people lost their lives, my case was heaven. But when you compare my Sunday night with one of my friend’s, it was hell. And in my world, this situation was a hurricane. Ever since I made some friends, and became more sociable, my whole life has changed. For the better really. I am more outspoken, and outgoing. Many people love me, I am loud and confident, and not afraid to stand out of the crowd and be me. I am pretty much fearless now, and I am proud to be me. So, I like who I am, many people think I am a lovable bad ass. This crazy girl flies with everyone, except my uncle.
    You see, since I “crossed over” my mind has opened to love. Love has changed my life, and all of the people in my life I see as warm people who are like me sociable, outspoken, and fun. Not afraid to stay up late, stand out, have fun. All of these people I have learned are like me but, not my father. Since I...
