Small Comic for The Sting...

So... here's a small comic I made for The Sting... WARNING: Sad.

(Also, the images are taken directly from the movie, clipart, and Supernatural. I just messed with the lighting)

Current Mood: sad

New Henry/Johnny story, and an older one
x-posting to Newford; sorry to seem spammy!

I just wanted to mention that I got to write a Henry Gondorff/Johnny Hooker story for the most recent Night on Fic Mountain exchange, which is relevant to this community's interests:

The Steel-Wire Tightrope (6609 words) by Dorinda
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: The Sting (1973)
Rating: Mature
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Henry Gondorff/Johnny Hooker
Characters: Henry Gondorff, Johnny Hooker
Additional Tags: Con Artists, 1930s, Rescue, Angst, Misunderstandings, Nonverbal Communication, Drugged Sex, Broccoli Test

Henry's in trouble. But when Johnny finds him, that's when their trouble really starts.

And I wrote another one a few years ago as a gift for giglet (RIP :((( ), which I don't know if I ever mentioned here--so just in case!:

Stray Dogs and Grifters (2032 words) by Dorinda
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: The Sting
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Henry Gondorff/Johnny Hooker
Characters: Henry Gondorff, Johnny Hooker
Additional Tags: Hurt/Comfort, Con Artists, 1930s, Post-Canon

A job goes bad, and for Henry and Johnny it's turn and turnabout.

Hi! Is there anybody out there? I don't know but I'll try anyway. Well, probably, it's the only fanvids about this pairings... ever? I did it long time ago, when the net was practically void of The Sting, Henry/Hooker or Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid (and the wonderful couple that Paul Newman and Robert Redford give us). In these times my control about editing programs was very amateur, but I hope you enjoy it anyway! :) ALL FOR NEWFORD EVER!

Oh Johnny Hooker!
We watched "The Sting" last night with some of my son's friends. Introducing the teenagers to the movie is always fun, partly because they seldom see much of the con the first viewing, and they're so gobsmacked when they realize that it was perfectly set up and that they missed a lot.

But what struck me this time was the acting, particularly Johnny Hooker. He's so adorably *young*.

Happy sigh.

Has anybody written or read any new The Sting fic in the past year? The list on Archive of Our Own doesn't show anything new.

Kid Twist dies at 86

Not sure if anyone is interested, but Harold Gould who played Kid Twist in The Sting has passed away at the age of 86. 

Loved Kid Twist and his other role beside Paul Newman in Harper was also memorable (and funny).

Fic: Stray Dogs and Grifters
I participated in fandom_stocking and what did I get? A "The Sting" story! From dorinda! That thrills me to bits!

Dorinda's story, "Stray Dogs and Grifters" had Henry and Johnny taking care of each other, plus Henry's hat and wordplay and danger and broccoli-test-passing and grifting, and it's wonderful!

If that sort of thing appeals to you, too, then go read!

Luther's Request and Henry's Decision
I often wondered about the conversation between Luther and Henry the day before Luther was killed.  Just putting my thoughts on paper.  I can see Henry's reluctance to take Johnny as an apprentice, but his willingness to help Luther. 

I can also Henry laughing at the irony of the relationship he develops with Johnny.  Simple, straight forward, but without verbal sentiment.
Not a great effort, but an attempt nonetheless.

Every hard working grifter deserves to relax

Even grifters celebrate with a bang...

Note: Not my best effort, but hey, it is 43 degrees and I am dying of heat exhaustion :P

    I've been rewatching "The Sting" alot lately since the sad passing of Paul Newman.
    I wrote this for the prompt that was posted a while ago that was from a different community. It was about "first kisses." The first kiss could be bad and the sex great or vice versa.

Title: First Time

Pairing: HenryJohnny
Summary: The first time they kiss is different from the first time they have sex!
Disclaimer: I own nothing related to "The Sting",and I'm not making any money!

Fic: First Kiss in Dukey's
storydivagirl is hosting a week of multifandom fics on her lj. Rules and post at
(She's calling it "Drabble-athons" but these aren't strictly drabbles (ie, 100-word stories).)

I decided to play, with today's theme: first kisses.
The prompt was:
Fandom: any
It happens not at all like A expected it, doesn't even make a blip in her/his radar. It leaves him/her thinking that maybe the sex will suck, only it doesn't. It's the best sex she/he's ever had. Or the other way around. Good kiss, crappy sex?
