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 )
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 )

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.


[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.

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!

...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:

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.

I don't really have much to say and I'm still busy chugging through getting things done (and losing my computer tomorrow! For a WHOLE DAY) but I thought I should let people know that gifting has officially started, one fic a day over at my account ([livejournal.com profile] ficviendha).

To start with:

We All Believe (In Us, You, Fairytales) | for [livejournal.com profile] fruhlings | Doctor Who | Amy was always a girl with big dreams.


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.
So I have had this in the works for ages and ages but have not gotten around to posting it until...now. What this says about me? ...that I put things off that I'm doing to put other things off? ...yeaaah.

No, I'm not sure about that. Spoilers for series 1, 3, and 5.

(+quotes +commentary)

wibbley wobbley timey wimey stuff )
Medium: TV Show
Fandom: Doctor Who
Title: The End of Time; the End of Ten
Subject: The Tenth Doctor's regeneration
Notes: I'm still thoroughly in love with David Tennant's Doctor and idc what people say about The End of Time, the end made me very very sad. And what do I do with emotional reactions to things? MAKE FANMIXES!!! so here it is, shorter than my usual, just a collection of a few songs that are sort of a tribute to an end that I came belatedly to, but whatever. Fandom is timeless, right?

the tenth doctor

I don't usually look very actively for fanvids, but every so often they turn up and I like them. A lot. All may do contain spoilers, so be warned for that. May be updated as I find more/actually start looking.

Avatar: the Last Airbender
Paper Planes - MIA by thedeadparrot (DW). Toph! The sync is awesome, and while I'd never have thought of this song for Toph it actually works pretty well.

Code Geass
Life's Gonna Suck - Denis Leary by CaramellNeko. Just...ridiculous. I loled.

Viva La Vida - Coldplay by rinir10010. Okay, I imagine it's the most overly fanvidded song ever, but I like this one! And it fits so many characters very nicely. And this one is well put together, I think; I like the way it was executed.

You Know My Name - Chris Cornell by Kagatoamv. Again, well put together, with a different tone.

Death Note
Thnks fr th Mmrs - Fall Out Boy by 3lgoonishive. Intense!!! A little more frenetic in terms of cutting than perhaps I would prefer, but it fits both song and series, so it works. Oh, it works.

Doctor Who
I Can't Decide - Scissor Sisters by agentthreeseven. The Master and this song may have been one of my favorite parts of the end of Series Three. And someone did me a service of setting all the best Master scenes to this song. Therefore.

Anyone on my flist have any recommendations?
Medium: TV Show
Fandom: Doctor Who
Title: The Last of the Time Lords
Subject: The Master (/The Doctor)
Notes: I blame the music in the Master episodes for this, completely. Because then I just got these IDEAS and it was too bad to resist. Or good. Or both. More notes with the lyrics.

and here it comes the sound of drums )
