Title: The Musicians
Notes: This one has been living on my HD for a while, and this is a set of characters I have a weird obsession with (their interaction is just SO FUCKED UP I feel anyway since it doesn't actually exist in canon lol). If you want a fic for this one, read anything I have ever written for Maglor and Daeron. Particularly "The World That Ends With You" and "Silver Glass." (Which needs more love. Even though it is written in the second person. Shh. Excessively depressing music, yay? I also just realized that I did not include "If" which is one of my Maglor/Daeron songs, so you can listen to that for bonus points.

( i find it kind of funny, i find it kind of sad )
Brought to you by elvenpiratelady (and some very minor help from myself) - I give you the genderswapped Silmarillion dream casting!!!!
(I cut out a few of the Sindar
( THE NOLOFINWEANS )
( THE ARAFINWEANS )
( THE SINDAR (+BEREN) )
Notes: There are lots of very pretty people here. Looking for pictures was fun. Harry Lloyd is still fine. Celegorm/Aredhel genderswapped would be really interesting, as would Celegorm/Luthien. I have a craving for femme!Caranthir/Angrod REALLY HARD now.
Everything's better with genderswapping.
THAT'S ALL. BE BACK LATER.
That notebook is where I write everything. It has drafts of fic of all kinds in it. It has porny gay fic in it. It has snark about my classmates in it. I keep my life in those notebooks. And I don't know where the hell it is.
THIS IS DISTRESSING ME A LOT.
But we move along, and there are still things I need to post. We'll start with some COMMENTARY, firstly "The Heart Is Dark", Silmarillion, requested by saruwatari, which can be found here at my fic journal.
Secondly, there is "Things Lucivar Does For Love (The List Is Short)", Black Jewels Trilogy, requested by tomboy_typist, also over at my fic journal.
The last one will be a bit longer coming. I also have three top fives I'm going to be getting to. But I wanted to post a few icons that I've done over the past...while. So we'll do the icons for now.
1-4: A Game of Thrones HBO
20: John Keats (Bright Star)
( icons here! )
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.
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 )
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 )
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.
...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 )
And here we go with the faceoffs, generated by the randomizer (SO DON'T BLAME ME)
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.
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 sargent_snarky | Silmarillion | Curufin doesn't know what to do with his son half the time.
Beginnings | for sakru909 | Death Note | The boy, his social workers said, was...peculiar.
Milo's Tollbooth | for 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.
And might as well start this off with the same disclaimer from last year: "I am fairly easy to please. I like surprises, I like a lot of characters, I like a wide range of topics, so really, if you're stuck banging your head against the wall, run with what you want to do and if you enjoy it I probably will too - I mean, so long as it is not something involving tentacle rape, anything involving intense detail of vomit or anything involving eye maiming which are really my only three squicks."
Still true. So relax! Have some fun. If you like what you write for me, in all probability I'll like it too.
Generally speaking, I tend to prefer gen fic to romance unless otherwise specified. I like angst and h/c but I also like fluffy things.
( more specifically, then! Lymond Chronicles, Rai Kirah, Belgariad/Malloreon, The Silmarillion )
Once again, thank you, and happy writing!
I just had a thought. Is there a single character I can think of who doesn't have daddy issues? I mean. Seriously.
Every single fucking one.
I'm pretty sure tomboy_typist was the one who pointed out to me besides that not only does every Fëanorian ever have daddy issues with Fëanor, or Fëanor have daddy issues with Finwë, freaking Morgoth has the equivalent of daddy issues with Eru.
I mean, seriously. Most epic temper tantrum ever because daddy didn't like his music.
I'm just saying.
On another note, this picture not only makes me want my very own Trent Reznor, it also gives me a terrible and awfully impermissible craving for Celegorm in bondage.
NOW THAT THAT'S OUT THERE.
In other arenas, it is time for linkspam!
- Raptors: scary dinosaurs, or the scariest dinosaurs - A good (fantastic) analysis of the raptor v. T-Rex argument. (Guess who wins.)
- Lelouch tells it like it is.
- Rufftoon @ deviantart - hilarious Avatar comics; see here.
- And finally, this.
Sir, I salute you.
There will be picspammy later.

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: everyfandom )
( those parts to come: Disney )
In conclusion, the Code Geass soundtrack is awesome.
Light Yagami's formspring
...oh yeah I have one too. minviendha, as usual. I don't mind questions either. :D
Yes, yes, I know. Don't think I don't. I just don't care~!
Characters Who Are the Prettiest Princess: Light, Maedhros, Fingon. Trufax.
Back later with more actual things.
I think I'm just going to call this my magnum opus and stop writing. It is a MASTERPIECE.
(No, not actually. Really rough, really crack, really, really bizarre.)
Title: East of the Sun and West of the Moon
Word Count: 2677 oh god.
Summary: "He was called Fingon, and was a tall, strapping lad, strong and bold as he approached his manhood, and it was in this time that he began to see the bear." Princess Fingon has to rescue his mysterious...husband? I blame coppertone. So hard.
( a masterwork of crack here lies it )
( tainted with trouble and less than it seems )
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 )
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.
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!
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
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.

Next round I'm totally going to start writing drabbles. >>;; I will not be able to help it at that point.
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.
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).
