Hello Alexander Fans Smile

1. Please post all suggestions for the names of our fan club on this thread.

2. I think we should all have designated titles/ functions in this fan club. For example, Lardvaark should be 'Keeper of the Emails' as she got the email addresses for Robin Lane Fox.

Also, I may not be around for a while as my college has an inspection next week and everyone is going mad with panic and there is lots to do. Sad

Another thing: do call me just Catherine. The X was just added on because when I tried to log in as Catherine, it said 'that log in name has been used before'. I have many ideas what the X could stand for, my favourite being Xaus, the surname of my favourite racing driver Laughing

Screen names are a funny thing - mine is a combination of my dogs names from way back with the age of the last one at the end. If anybody can remember, you can just call me Pam.

FAN CLUB NAMES: (These are the ones I remember)

1. Alexandrians
2. New Companions
3. Alexander Addicts
4. Kohl-eyed Phalanx

Did I leave any out? Any other ideas?

Thank you Pam and Emily Smile

Had some brilliant ideas for other titles for people in this fan club:

Mistress of Jared's Boudoir

Mistress of Colin's Boudoir

[you can be Mistress of any other actor's boudoirs, so there are lots of these titles going]

Historical Expert

Language Expert

Love and Kissing Observer

Hair and Make up Analyst

Commander of the British Phalanx

[you can be commander of the other nationalities Phalanxes e.g. American]

Obviously, Lardvaark is Keeper of the Emails already. Haven't decided what I want to be yet.Laughing

I think some of these titles will be fought over!!

Very Happy

Yes, feel free to make up your own titles and duties [!!] I can't think of one for myself yet. I quite fancy being Mistress of Colin's Boudoir, but maybe other people have a greater claim on that title. Maybe I should just be Fan Club Co ordinator. Or Alexander Co ordinator Laughing

So Galatasaray/Emily = Fantasy Co ordinator Razz

Halfaery, do you want to be a Horselord of some description? Smile Bucephalus is a lovely horse, isn't he. What about being someone's Personal Stable Hand?

If we are voting, I'm torn between The Alexandrians and The Kohl-Eyed Phalanx, which is so original/amusing it ain't true. Stick me down for one of each.

We have to see this through, I'm sure we can resolve it amicably. We are far too dedicated a unit to go nameless. Perhaps a few aliases?

Anyway, I'm well made up with my offical title. And just so's I live up to it, I might have to add a few more later (what am I saying? Talk about putting pressure on yourself) Wink
As for my own alias, I also go by "Re-Arranger of Words" (check out my anagrams, everyone, I implore thee!).

Oooh, and we're revealing names as well, aren't we? Well OK, let's ditch the formality. You can call me lardy/vaarky/whatever suits. In real life(?does not compute?) they refer to me as Clare (or Clur).

Wow, i'm ok with the Alexandrians or the Kohl-eyed phalanx for the reasons Vaarky Wink explained...
Then, as a title for myself i'd choose something like "Sex scenes guesser"... as i can't help but fantazising about what happened between Roxana, Alexander, Hephaistion and maybe some more ... Laughing

And as long as everybody's revealing their names, mine's Jame. Like James with no "S"... JAME (and i'm a guy, if it's not clear... Cath, i can't be "Mistress" of any boudoir... as some others here Wink )

Thank you Clare and Jame.Smile

More fuel to our fire:

In the book, Antigonus [Ian Beattie] writes a diary and says he saw Colin/Alexander 'snogging the face off' Rosario/Roxanne in the make up tent!!! Naughty naughty Wink

I'll do a list next week of people and their titles in this fan club. I'm struggling with this inspection this week Sad

OK, I'll vote for Alexandrians.

I did have an idea for another name but it is based on an awful naughty thought and I don't know that I should even put it here (no, no curse words) so I'll hold back for now.

Although I am not an historian, I would like to be the history expert for our group if there isn't anyone else who has better credentials than myself. I just enjoy reading the history and relaying the stories (I'd call them facts, but nobody can be really certain of many of these things). Therefore, if there's a question about anything it gives me a reason to go back to research something.

Hi Jame. Well, you could be Master of any boudoir you'd like! If that's your thing. Guess I'd have to go back and check out your posts to see where you stand on that, but it's ok with me. Actually, I suppose there should be a master as well as a mistress, seeing how we're all talking about men kissing each other.

And Catherine, you can certainly be Mistress of Colins boudoir if you wish. You just have to let me in from time to time! Deal? So, Catherine and Jame, what are your duties in this new position? (Well, couldn't that last question be taken a couple of ways?)

Not that I have final say on any of this, so what do the rest of you think?
