Literary Botticelli

So, some folks (coyotegestalt, redhilltown, kinetikatrue and chickenfeet2003) have done rounds of literary boticelli, and I won the last one, so I'm hosting this round. In-depth directions for the game can be found here on kinetikatrue's page. It's laid out pretty nicely, so I suggest you go read and come back. But basically, the question you ask must be specific enough that I can answer confidently with a particular author or character (as in, "no, I'm not Elizabeth Bennett"). If I don't get the reference, you get to ask a more general question that can be answered with a yes or no, such as the person's sex, age, nationality, etc.

So, this time, my name starts with "R"

I am fictional, I am not Rincewind, Roderick Random, "the fair Rosaline," Reepicheep the mouse, or Mae Rose-Cottage. I am not male and I appear in a novel.

We have a winner! The astute ironed_orchid guessed correctly that I am Mrs Ramsey, always waiting to go To The Lighthouse.

(sorry about the delay in getting started - I had some mysterious ISP or modem gremlins that were preventing me from getting online)

So you're not Rincewind, then... :)

Hm. Are you fictional?

Yes, I am fictional.

Are you stochastic?
intertext

Grrr. I know what stochastic means, so I know it's somebody or other Random, but I honestly don't know the reference, so points to you... (I'm not whoever it is, but technical points to you anyway)

So you are not Tobias Smollett's Roderick Random.

Are you male?

Jun. 18th, 2007 07:06 pm (UTC)
Wow. A double "R" :) No, I am not male.

Are you a Capulet?

No, I am not (and neither was Romeo *grin*)

Er, I was thinking of someone else, actually...

Jun. 18th, 2007 07:18 pm (UTC)
Ah, sorry... No, I'm not Rosaline, either.

Ah, well ;}

Wouldn't Rosaline Capulet be a 'C' anyway?

*blinks*
Yes. Yes, she would.
I think I need more sleep....

Did your ancestors gain the power of speech for freeing a lord?

I am not Reepicheep.

I was going to say that it was worth a shot, but really, not, given I somehow managed to get the 'not male' thing reversed in my head.

Jun. 18th, 2007 08:22 pm (UTC)
I wondered about that - wracked my brains to remember if there was a female mouse in Narnia :) Reepicheep is a pretty secure male, too, I would think, even if he seems content with his bachelor state...

Just so, yes. I seem to have been remarkably off this game. Sorry about that. 8)

Have you ever invited people to call you Dolores?

I have no idea!

So you are not Mae Rose-Cottage from "Under Milkwood"

Do you appear in a novel?
intertext
Jun. 18th, 2007 07:45 pm (UTC)
Yes, I do.

Sorry about the magically disappearing comment. I just realised well after posting that I'd been a complete idiot again.

Oh that's a relief - I was afraid I'd committed some breach of game etiquette or something!

Oh, no! Sorry.

(Though that makes me think: what would a maoish game of Botticelli be like . . . )

Do you have a a summer home in the Hebrides?

Actually, realised this is not specific enough. Do you and your husband have a summer house in the Hebrides?

Well done! You win teh intawebs - I am indeed Mrs Ramsey from To The Lighthouse
