"Favorite Scenes"
 
   i know there have been lists of favorite quotes...but how 'bout favorite scenes....the ones you can just absolutely see playing on the private screen in your head?

one of my absolute favorites is from A Day of Infamy. and while i know that it needs fixing i still think it was a lovely piece of writing. anyhow the scene is in the babylon 6 bar when molari and g'kar ar making bets on how well their navies will do in the battle and d'lenn comes in and trumps them. the way it was written just absolutely worked. i could even hear the voices from the cast of the show saying the lines.

Carpe librum!

   A favorite scene, and one that sticks very prevalently in my mind like a movie behind my eyes?

For that, I would without hesitation have to say that one of my absolute favorites, and a scene that still gives me chills, would be Hunted Rose, with Corwin's arrival at Earth via Daggerdisc for one of the most incredible rescue scenes I've ever read.

Concur, though I clip the scene a bit longer..., starting with Corwin waking up, and ending with Daggerdisk jumping clear at the end.

   Absolutely.

I realize now that I didn't clarify that, but that is what I meant. I mean, it wouldn't be proper to not include the mad dash to the space port, and or his "reward" :)

nope, though I've just re read it and I have to retract my last statement. Why? Because the whole movement of Hunted Rose is just one long swath of Crowning moment(s) of Awesome...

   Can't say I have one favorite scene but the 1st time I read Corwin running the orbital satellite blockage it immediately brought to mind the scene in Macross Plus when Isamu is doing the exact same thing. Que up Information High and the track fits perfectly.

   Good god, there are too many to list.

* Corwin's rescue scene
* The whole scene at the end of Knights of the Tenth World: Endgame. Oh. My. GOD.
* Interlude at Vortigern's Lake No. 2
* Interlude on Titan, for that matter
* Twilight. Just... Twilight.
* The final fight scene in Blades

--yeah, it's good, but there must be _one_ outstanding scene from it. For me, it is Yuri vs. the Jorgumund.

   >* The final fight scene in Blades

When I finished the Anne v. Roger -> Rei v. Atros (with a side of HK-47 v. Ko-Enshaku) sequence for Blades, I was vaguely depressed and out-of-sorts for several days after. Some part of me was convinced - and it's entirely possible that some part of me remains convinced - that I would never write a fight scene as good as that again. And, you know, it's possible that I never will... though that won't stop me from trying.

   To Trigger:

Re: Twilight, I'm split 50/50 on two that sort of rise to the top, as it were. The first is the rebuilding of the World-Engine while Belldandy gives her all, and then some, to keep reality together.

The second is the huge megafight in Twilight, but most specifically the utter annihilation of Hela.

To be honest, a lot of that fight is etched in my mind as a sort of montage, like what you'd see with a music video. Now if I could just put it to music maybe it'd stop bugging me so much, but I can't think of a track that fits. Yet.

>>* The final fight scene in Blades
> --which one <grin>

Specifically the one that Gryphon picked up on, the three-way (six-way?) duel between Anne, Rei, and HK-42 vs. Roger, Atros, and Ko-Enshaku.

Granted, Vader dropping in and obliterating Ko was -cool-, but it was just a last little dab of decorative icing on the Awesome Cake as far as I'm concerned.

Yes! That last line, especially. It was perfectly delivered, and if this were a movie that would be the ultimate teaser trailer section.

Picture it: Rei, bloodied but defiant, standing there and delivering that line... to who?!

(I mean, obviously -we- know, since we've 'seen the movie', but it's just such a great line that it seems like it deserves to be part of the trailer. Heh.)

When the time came for Vader's entrance, I had originally planned to just have him show up, deliver his congratulatory speech, Lucasian diagonal wipe to the epilogue, the end - but after all that went before, it seemed so... flat that way. But, by the same token, I knew piling another lengthy fight scene on top of what we already had would just be gilding the lily, as it were.

As is so often the case, Toshirō Mifune and Akira Kurosawa came to the rescue. The duel between Vader and Ko-Enshaku ends up playing out as a classic samurai-film one-and-done iaijutsu battle, most specifically inspired by the final fight in 1962's Sanjuro (the sequel to Yōjinbō).

Similarly, the appearance of the remaining members of the Magnificent Ten (deliberately kept in shadow, except for Lord Alberto) was something of an afterthought. Ifurita wasn't originally intended to appear in Blades, but various developments obsoleted the material I'd intended for a sequel before it could be released (for once!), so I moved that bit over and made Blades as stand-alone as possible.

Corwin Nearly Shooting Akio (Or at least attempting to) is a scene that is perfectly etched into my mind forever

Kozue's CHANGE! GETTER! DRAGON! is another scene that brought a great big grin to my face as well (Can I just nominate all of "A Night to Remember"?)

*Edited for spelling. Kozoue, seriously? I need more Sleep...*

   I think my favorite scene isn't so much one that I can see play out, but that it's fairly unique in the Eyrie works. It's the funeral scene from Days of Miracle and Wonder. It's one of the few truly solemn scenes written here, it struck a chord with me the first time I read it, and still gets me every time I've read it since.

It would have been an accidental shooting, had of not reloaded... twice.

There are many others - too many to list here, probably - but the first that came to mind was in Symphony 1-07 when Saionji meets Liza in the B5 core shuttle train and forces her to step onto a new path with a startlingly sudden and bold act of his own. I can still remember my moment of reaction (roughly, "HOLY $%^!!") when I first read it.

I should also mention the scene just before it, in her quarters, where we see her utterly broken and sincerely (though not yet publicly) repentant.

   One of my favorite scenes would have to be when Gudrun came out of the elevator and ate the marauder.

Point of Disorder: she didn't actually consume him. It's just that an uru mace on heavy body armor, very quickly, wielded by a woman who can pick up and use a moderately-sized automobile as a weapon in a pinch, sounds similar to, well, cracking open a lobster hella fast for the eating.

Oh I know that she didn't *ACTUALLY* eat him. It was more of along the lines of she beat the holy living crap outta him. I was also feeding from the line "It sounded like a hungry man eating a lobster in an almighty hurry" or something along the lines.

   All of Twilight. Good Christ that would make the ultimate movie.

Thirding or fourthing Corwin's rescue in Hunted Rose, too. Love it.
