Remember when I said I hit the Lost Boys motherland on eBay?  Here it is.  When all was said and done I ended up with 47 different press photos and a total of 831 copies of the images.  Of the 47 I was able to add 38 of them to my collection (this is including images I may already have but in different variations).

The lot is in fantastic condition, the images are great quality (for the time) and all of the copies are studio originals (meaning all 831 prints are studio-issued copies from 1986/1987 for original distribution to media outlets, not reprints from a home printer or something printed at a drug store).  Because me and my money are tight, before I even started negotiating on this set I did the math.  The individual images in my collection now average around $13 to $15 each that I acquired over time.  Apply even the low amount to the 38 I didn’t have and watch your eyes big out.  I paid half of that for this entire lot.  No way I could pass it up.

And remember how I said it was something I was going to share?  Well, with 831 copies they have to go somewhere!  I do plan on selling some on eBay but I would like to give some away here too.  I just need to work out the logistics of that before I move forward.

This was my first attempt at picspam so it’s not the greatest but it was the easiest way to get all of the photos into one post.  I had to crop them down a little to fit but I’ll get the full scans up on Hotel Twilight soon enough.  The scans themselves are a little lighter than the images but I chalk that up to me having set the scan at 200 dpi.  It’s time for me to take a break from eBay after this.  Buying, at least.

No where on that page you linked does it say you can't make multiple accounts?

Once Bitten || Valerie and Sam

Valerie stepped into Sam’s room, trailing behind him quietly. It was Sam’s idea to invite her over while his grandpa was out seeing the Widow Johnson and his mother was out working. Valerie was still a bit uneasy about the idea of being alone in the house with Sam, just because she didn’t want to run the risk of being caught by Lucy or Grandpa Emerson had they returned early… Not like she had plans of getting caught doing anything. Her only intention was to study with Sam, though by the way he looked, it seemed like he had much more on his mind than studying history. She couldn’t blame him. They were both eighteen now, and they’d been dating for four years already. He’d been more than patient with her, but she just wasn’t ready yet. He was always respectful of her and never tried to force her into anything, but she knew how hormones were raging, and it was difficult for even her to hold back sometimes. 

“Oh, looks like you finally got a tv.” She teased, turning it on and flipping the channel to MTV. She sat down at the edge of his bed, reaching into her bag to pull out her notebook. “Now we can listen to music while studying. I hear that helps your memory.” She smiled sweetly, gently bringing her finger to her temple as a gesture. “So lets see… American History. It shouldn’t be too hard to remember as long as we remember important dates."
