Greetings, fellow Wildians!
Under prodding from webmaster Don Swaim, I painted the following picture of Oscar about to kiss Ambrose Bierce:
http://donswaim.com/landis.love&kisses.jpg

Who, you ask, is Ambrose Bierce? American satirist, Civil War veteran, and master of the short story, he had a popular newspaper column in San Francisco when Oscar was on his American tour. For reasons best known to himself, Bierce took an enourmous dislike to Oscar, and wrote an article about him so full of spleen and bile that even the most sulferous Usenet flamer would stand in awe of it. What Oscar thought of Bierce--if he thought of him at all--is not known.

But Ambrose never actually met Oscar--and if he had, I believe that he would have succomed to Oscar's charm. And since Bierce's good looks were legendary, I suspect that Oscar might have been attracted too. Hence this picture. Enjoy.

::wildean smirk:: Well done ^^ I must say the expression on Mr. Bierce's face is really rather priceless *grins* Nice work, and welcome ;-)

...we're going to lump dear Ambrose in with the other notorious American Oscar hater Henry James :P Ok, so techincally James DID meet Oscar, but oh well, I know Henry James was just jealous, hehehe. I've read the article Bierce wrote that you speak of, you're description of it is spot on ~_^

Thanks. I tried to give Bierce a gobsmacked, this-can't-be-happening expression. I suspect that Bierce's loathing of Oscar had an element of alpha-male rivalry hidden somewhere in it;"I'M the iconoclastic sexpot in THIS town, Mr Sissypants!"
And, deviated preevert that I am, I can't resist the fantasy of Ambrose changing his mind in a really big way.

Hmmm...one thing I notice in online slash fiction is the tendency of characters who previously couldn't tolerate each other to fall madly in love and wind up in each other's beds. This picture seems to be the visual expression of this slashfic love/hate mixup...

science has proven that boys will tick off their love interest because they haven't found away to express their love
