Dear [livejournal.com profile] westerosorting friends -

For the character meme, since I can't go for Robb or Arya again, I'd like to go for Meera Reed.

Please and thank you. :D

I am secretly really sad I can't go for Mya.
Icons! First in a long while. And a whole bunch, too.

1-13: A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones)
14-23: Avatar ASOIAF sorting icons
24-45: Buffy/Angel ASOIAF sorting icons
46-51: Doctor Who ASOIAF sorting icons

Did not do everyone, mostly because of a lack of energy and/or inspiration. Maybe someday.

51 icons, mostly crossover )
Yes three posts in one night but this is important:



LOOK AT HIM LOOK JUST.

JUST LOOK.

AND BASK.
And in this last round, we said farewell to Melian, Jack Harkness, Brynden "The Blackfish" Tully and Jaime Lannister! You fought well, friends, but now we are down to the wire - and the real champion is only two rounds away!

So off we go, with two big matches...

doctor vs. elf-master )

And the second match:

lady knight and sir golden )

GO ON, GUYS. MAKE ME PROUD.
Last match of the four brackets - we're getting near the end! Next match I'll start doing summaries. Maybe. If I get less lazy.

So this round, farewell to Caranthir, Galadriel, Castiel, Sherlock Holmes, Oberyn Martell, Arya Stark, Loras Tyrell, and Sandor Clegane. Good game, folks.

DON'T WANNA RAICHU A LOVE SONG )

[Poll #1718011]
ROUND THREE, and we say goodbye to Finrod, Curufin, Maedhros (not a single vote!), Fingon, Azula, Light Yagami, Martha Jones, Dean Winchester, Robb Stark, Jon Snow, Edmure Tully, Brandon Stark, Olenna Redwyne-Tyrell, Petyr Baelish, Garlan Tyrell, and Cersei Lannister. Alas! Sleep with the fishes.

I don't think I need to reiterate the instructions at this point? VOTE VOTE VOTE FOR THE WINNERS.

BUILD ME UP BUTTERCUP DON'T LET ME DOWN )

All right! Next round of the party (tourney?). Say farewell and mourn (or don't) for Maglor, Maeglin, Ambarussa, Celegorm, Fingolfin, Turin, Aredhel, Thingol, Dexter Morgan, Sam Winchester, Brian Moser, L, Katara, Deb Morgan, Zuko, Owen Harper, Catelyn Tully-Stark, Doran Martell, Lyanna Stark, Eddard Stark, Meera Reed, Theon Greyjoy, Arianne Martell, Gerold Dayne, Tywin Lannister, Genna Lannister, Asha Greyjoy, Bronn, Margaery Tyrell, Tyrion Lannister, Joffrey Baratheon-Lannister, and Gregor Clegane.

NEXT ROUND. After the killer matchups last round, I think this one should be much easier, for the most part. I think. Remember: vote for the ones you think will win, not just the ones you like best!

WILL THE REAL SLIM SHADY PLEASE STAND UP )

AND NOW: THE MATCHUPS.

...this will probably be the first of two posts today, the other one for the top 10 meme and possible a few other things. BUT TO START. This is March Madness Lise's Journal Edition, and for the most part I kept things the same as last year, because there are enough new faces to make it worth it, I feel, with one small alteration. I combined the elf brackets (Sindar and Noldor) and threw in a TV/video media bracket; I also added Martells to the Stark bracket and Tyrells to the Lannister bracket.

...and I'm not providing Wikipedia links this year, I'm sorry. Or summaries, thus far, though that may change when we get down to fewer rounds.

I encourage everyone to vote! And to vote not just for who you like more but for who would actually win, if at all possible. P.S.: these fights are to the death, so just be aware that they're not just leaving. Although you can think that way if it makes you feel better.

Without further ado:

THE PARTY DON'T STARK TILL I WALK IN )

LET THE GAMES BEGIN. CAMPAIGNING IS WELCOME. AND ENCOURAGED.

P.S. that cut text was a typo. I left it in. Also contrary to popular belief, I do have things to do? I'm just...not doing them.
Dear Diary, is it weird that I kind of like to travel? And I don’t mean just going places, but the getting there too. Especially airplanes. I actually kind of like airplanes. Maybe it is the long time without any distraction. I tend to get a lot done.

On the other hand, then there are days like yesterday, where we sit in a plane for an hour and a half only to have to change planes because of a lightbulb (!) and consequently depart two hours behind schedule. And that is why all the things I wanted to have done before the new year are…not done before the new year.

And I am home! First things first, I suppose - a (somewhat belated) VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of you on my flist, and I hope this year is much better than last, no matter how your last year was. In other words, exactly what all you lovely people deserve.

Are you ready for this devastatingly longass meme? (First of...oh, three, actually.)

Other notes: Yuletide was overall disappointing in terms of finding stories I really wanted to read, but I have a few recs that I'll post when I'm not deluging the place with memes and a half, and: 

How to Lose Friends and Influence People | for [livejournal.com profile] sargent_snarky | Silmarillion | Curufin doesn't know what to do with his son half the time.
Beginnings | for [livejournal.com profile] sakru909 | Death Note | The boy, his social workers said, was...peculiar.
Milo's Tollbooth | for [livejournal.com profile] firebluespinel | The Phantom Tollbooth | Milo returns.

For those of you I still owe presents - those will also be up, as soon as possible! (And to those watching my fic journal...there's going to be a bit of a deluge in the next couple days. I'm terribly sorry. >> 

I have also realized that I should make a list of the fic I've written that's inspired by other fic. Because there are a few.

This hasn't happened for a while...

Assorted things of all kinds in here. A couple (okay, two) Jerk/Bitch icons, a bunch of the Keep Calm parody things that I just discovered because I am always late on the bandwagon, some Doctor Who, some Supernatural, some other things entirely.

More specifically:

1-5: Avatar: the Last Airbender
6-11: Keep Calm parodies (for various)
12-14: Jerk/Bitch icons
15-18: Doctor Who
19-21: various
22-23: requested by [livejournal.com profile] pashchan (and variation)
24-33: Supernatural (Sam, specifically)
34-36: more Doctor Who

a fair amount of silliness here lies. please forgive me. )

Also my computer is still freezy and stupid-like-ass and it's making me unreasonably, ridiculously cranky. Awesome.
AHAHAHAHAHA thiiiiis. A brainwashed flounder, seriously, I think I am going to die. Happily.

In other arenas, it is time for linkspam!


Sir, I salute you.

There will be picspammy later.

ICONS.
1-15: ASOIAF (with two Death Note crossover)
16-21: Sailor Elves
22-29: Death Note (L/Light)
30-59: Avatar: the Last Airbender
+1 L/Light graphic

coming back like a prodigal son )

Day #8 - Character you look like the most
Idk, actually. The thing about having short, nondescript colored hair is that it's hard to pick a character who really looks like you. Maybe Light, actually; I might be able to cosplay as him without too much effort, is the way I think of it. Other than that...I honestly do not know. >.> Lame answer is lame.

Day #8 - Your favorite villain
Scar, obviously. Do I really need to explain? He's charismatic and ambitious and terrible and he's voiced by Jeremy fucking Irons. That is all, really. I don't think I know anyone who dislikes Scar. ...of course, someone's going to come and prove me wrong, but shhh. Although...Frollo is also a fantastic villain. And so deliciously creepy. "Hellfire" is, easily, the best villain song Disney has ever made ever. ...oh wait, that's a later answer, isn't it?

those parts to come: Disney )

In conclusion, the Code Geass soundtrack is awesome.

These are for incredibly old requests I am not sure the people in question even remember making: [livejournal.com profile] myxginxblossoms for Brienne/Sansa, [livejournal.com profile] sakru_909 for Sandor, and [livejournal.com profile] dreams_of_all for Draco, "and everything went onward."

I like the last one best.

A meme, some rambling, and the fourth round of Madness. (Or Sparta.)

Give me a character from any fandom, tv show, movie, book you know that I know and I will tell you:
a. My favorite thing about that character.
b. My least favorite thing about that character.
c. One person I would ship them with in their own verse.
d. One crossover ship for them I think would be neat.
e. One crossover universe for them I think would be even neater.
f. Their ship from hell.
g. Their song.
h. The title of their biography or autobiography.
i. The last bad dream they had.
j. How they're gonna shuffle off the mortal coil, if they haven't already.


FINAL MATCHES OF THE BRACKETS )

THE LAST OF THE MATCHES )

[Poll #1543900]

There was a fannish five I wanted to do about the most loving fictional moms, because I would have had the chance to gush about Nerdanel, but I couldn't think of five. I have Nerdanel and Sybilla Crawford, who I figure qualifies for her sheer badass in Checkmate in particular. And I can always gush about Nerdanel more. But for best fictional parents...I think Nerdanel might be up there. Actually, my list probably looks something like this:

1. Nerdanel (Seven of those wee hooligans. Seven. That's pretty bamflicious.)
2. Fingolfin (I've talked about this before. And still want a picture of him making pancakes. Or something.)
3. Tam al'Thor (The Gathering Storm cinched this for me, so hard)
4. Saetan Sa'Diablo (Again - for sheer challenge factor, raising Jaenelle is...yeah, not the easiest of tasks. And not to mention the good bits of Lucivar and Daemon are probably his influence.
5. Celebrimbor's unnamed mother, because damn, she deserves some credit for infusing some good sense into her son. Good sense doesn't come from Curufin, after all.

I think I want to see all of them gathered around sipping tea and talking about their children's issues. It'd be.

I want to say cute but that might be the wrong word. Maybe I'll just write fic of Ner and Cele's mom and Fingolfin all having tea together and discussing the challenges of raising young Finweans. I need to write more Nerdanel fic, now that she's moved so solidly into my head. >>;;

I have a feeling I had coherent meta that I might have wanted to make, but now I cannot for the life of me recall what it was. Perhaps if I remember later. One cannot force these things.

At least I am no longer feeling like biting someone's head off!
First things first, HAPPY BIRTHDAY [livejournal.com profile] tomboy_typist! Much love and sweetness to you, and by god, expect some KT/ASOIAF fic coming over your way soon.

You know it will inevitably involve Sandor/Phedre, I cannot lie. &hearts &hearts &hearts

I amuse myself too much sometimes. I need to update that more often. Though some of the entries are definitely funnier than others.

I just couldn't resist. In other news, Naomi Novik appears to have written a crossover in which Jaime Lannister fights Temeraire the dragon, and it is the best thing ever. No, seriously. I think I need to start watching her journal, just because. ---omg. See for yourself, by all means AND THEN GO VOTE TEMERAIRE seriously folks, Jaime's cool and all, but he ain't got nothing on the dragon.

There is American Idol. And Cthulhu. And just guys, I cannot say. It is full of perfect.

Less full of perfect is my mood, which still sucks, and the fact that votes on Fandom Madness have been steadily declining. :( I made the difficult decision to close the last poll and move to the next round, but I want to whine terribly. There aren't even that many votes anymore! It's really fun at least for me! Campaign in the comments!

/done.

Ties were between Aredhel and Maglor and Earendil and Maeglin; Aredhel and Maeglin both continued. Sandor got knocked out by Tywin, which is the only result I'm saddened by this time. But not surprised. XD Tywin is a hardass.

Finally, I would like to point out that more of the epic AU is up on my fic journal, and that I may have 14 pages of Curufin FST combined with fic, and that I'm incredibly excited about my Silmarillion adaptation of "East of the Sun and West of the Moon" but shhh. I still have a lot to do.

A lot to do here meaning nothing productive, pfffft.

ETA: ...there is a health care debate going on on my flist. I'm going to pretend I didn't see it and I'm definitely not clicking on the cut.

I'd rather no one started in here, either. I just don't have the energy.
minviendha: (absolutely ridiculous)
( Mar. 21st, 2010 12:45 pm)
I will confess that I am slightly disappointed that neither Celegorm nor Fingon made it past the first round. :(

Ties were decided by a random decision maker, and no I am not kidding. XD The ties were between Fingon and Ambarussa (winner: Ambarussa) and Tuor and Celeborn (winner: Tuor).

Also, OH GOD.
What do you mean, you haven't voted on part one yet? Get on over there and GO FOR IT.

I have also come to the conclusion that I should conduct all of my business in polls, as people seem to like them much more than anything else. The response on poll entries is always so much bigger than that on non-poll entries. XD

ONWARD. Voting for part one probably closes tomorrow morning, voting for this at the end of the weekend. So I can get on to the next round, you see.

I was lazy about the umlauts, I hope you will forgive me.

I needed to make my own fandom bracket, because no one ever includes the people I'd want in the eljay-wide ones. Oh, cries and so on.

So [livejournal.com profile] strangerface was making an all female version for [livejournal.com profile] chickfight , which you should totally join and vote on, by the way, it looks like it will be awesome, and I just...felt like it. So I thought I would go ahead and go for it. (Go the hell for it? I don't know.) But anyway.

Match! Silmarillion vs. A Song of Ice and Fire because that is my favorite crossover ever, and within that, "Starks" vs. "Lannisters," and Noldor vs. Sindar and Humans because apparently I suck at coming up with Sindar names. Shhh. BUT ANYWAY. Behind the cut are the lists, and I'm going to attempt bravely to match them up randomly, and we'll see who gets to the Final Four.

...come now, play along with me. You know you want to. Feel free to vote even if you don't know the characters, some information and Wiki links will be given. I promise. ...:D

There Will Be Polls. You are also encouraged to campaign as you like. Winner can be based on anything, and any criteria will probably be accepted, but badass cred is preferred.
