First things first, folks: I'm so grateful for all of you. You're all on my flist for a reason, and I love reading journals for a reason, and some of you I would have been too shy ever to ask but through mutual friends or other things - I'm glad you're all here, is the bottom line, and I hope you're doing fantastically. I'm just feeling squishy and full of love today. &hearts &hearts

So I've been putting off posting this forever because I am lazy. Let's make it a Christmas present. Ahead of time, folks, this post is loaded with SILMARILLION and A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE and DORK. Also, if you have ever wondered why sometimes the folder name is different than the fanmix name, it is because I chance these damn titles about six times. I do this with everything. For example, "The Lost Son" on my fic journal is known as the (better) "The Damned" on FFN. I'm just too lazy to change all the chapters already on my journal, lol.

ALSO, one more reason to love the Silmarillion: it is a great fan of the words "great" and "doom" and when combined these words create a most excellent phrasething. Especially doom. DOOOOOM.

Medium: Book
Fandom: Silmarillion
Title: No Second Chance
Subject: One guess. :D But it really works for the arc of most of it from the Flight of the Noldor onwards.
Notes: I really, really like this. And coming up soon will be a compilation of all my truly favorite Feanorian (DEFINITIVE) fanmix songs, probably towards the end of the year. \o/

Things I'm excited about this Christmas, on that note: GAME OF THRONES CARDS FUCK YES, CHRISTMAS CTHULHU FUCK YES, LE CHEVALIER D'EON/PLANET EARTH/LIFE AFTER PEOPLE FUUUUCK YESSSSS. Not many books, though, clearly I'll just have to wait for my wallet to heal and head to the bookstore on my own.

aaaaand more art recommendations? :D )

I wanna be the very best! like no one ever was! OR the most epic crossover icons ever )

Found this and dlkf it's true at least for me. First time I cried. Ever. In these books, I mean, otherwise I am a freaking leaky faucet. ALSO hey hey bitches.



WORD.

And lastly, THIS FREAKING CRACKS ME UP mostly because in RP land interactions between Daeron and Feanorians end in near death. Not hugs. Also I just. Can't see this going well? Maybe it's just me. Horz.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD LIFE!


P.P.S: When Yuletide archive loads I will have recs for yinsall. NOW TO FINISH THOSE LATE CHRISTMAS PRESENTS *scampers*
If there are one or more people on your friends list who make your world a better place just because they exist, and who you would not have met (in real life or not) without the internet, then post this same sentence in your journal.

IT'S TRUE, TOO.

Okay, a few memes:

First, tagged by [profile] redsilkscarf:

The rules are easy. Just post 10 things that recently made you happy! Then tag 10 people to post this meme on their LJs.

1. Bryan ETHAN.
2. Homecoming Dance!
3. Ben & Jerry's.
4. Lucivar. I adore him. I adore playing him.
5. New nail polish! :DD
6. No homework
7. A Clockwork Orange and Brave New World. So good zomg.
8. Puppy. She always does.
9. My bookshelf always makes me happy.
10. My Halloween costume! (it almost kicks more ass than Mimi's; but not quite.)

I tag... whoever wants to do it. I don't even really have ten friends anyway.

And then, the seven songs I like meme: maybe with a few links later. Too late for that right now.

1. Opheliac - Emilie Autumn (I blame [profile] princeralis)
2. Lullabye for a Stormy Night (I don't know why I love this so much all of a sudden, but I do.)
3. Breathe (2 am) - Anna Nalick (So beautiful. So singable. I love it.)
4. Amaranth - Nightwish (I'm sorry for the disloyalty...but it has a really catchy chorus.)
5. Full Moon - Sonata Arctica (I cannot get over the awesomeness of this song.)
6. Frozen - Within Temptation (I think the really intense music video for this one made me fall in love with it, actually.)
7. Miserie Cantare - AFI (I actually like this song a lot, all of a sudden.)

...first of all, I think I'm over Bryan. Really. Seriously. I know.

*DOES A VICTORY DANCE*

So anyway, HOMECOMING ZOMGZ. We won, of course, but that wasn't the best part. The best part was arguing feminism with Rachel, chatting with Eugie, John, and Bryan in a "normal" (for us) way, and getting to stand right behind my new love interest. *glees* Oh and going down to Safeway, getting ice cream, and having Caro tell me that "He is so totally into you." Even if it's not true. It's nice to dream.

Homecoming dance tomorrow, update later.

First, from [profile] reynardbleu.

Comment on this post and I will give you at least three reasons why I love you. Then make your own post in your journal and spread the love.

And from [profile] i_have_a_spork:

Comment on this post. I will choose seven interests from your profile and you will explain what they mean and why you are interested in them. Post this along with your answers in your own journal so that others can play along.

calvin and hobbes: Calvin and Hobbes seriously has a comic for everything. EVERYTHING. I grew up with these and they were and are my favorite comic. Who doesn't love this. Plus, Calvin and I both love dinos, and das cool.

gothic literature: I actually haven't read that much of it, but Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier is definitely up on my favorite books list, and I really would like to read more in the same vein.

libraries:
Essentially unlimited books? For free?! GIVE ME MORE.

peppermints: I'm addicted. What more can I say?

piano: I play it, all my friends play it, and it is pretty. Piano pwns all other instruments, kthxbai.

shiny things: I am secretly a magpie, and therefore attracted to all things that gleam, sparkle, or glisten. In other words, shiny things.

trenchcoats:
They're fun to wear, and besides, they're really hot on guys.

Yes, it's spam. But it's happy spam.

SEXY GRADIENTS BOY FTW.



He's too sexy for his shirt. That's why he took it off. (From Caro.)



...link to his page.

Oh, yes.

Bryan who?

I'm afraid.

One of my friends is pulling back. I don't know if it's her or me, but it's happening, and I don't know what to do. It would be easier just to let it go, but that feels like the cowardly thing to do. And I do love her, just...she makes my life harder, sometimes. Sometimes I feel like I'm just sitting here and watching my life go by. Is that a healthy way to live?

Do I sit back and let her have her space, or do I try to talk? I don't know. I'm worried that if I try to talk I'll find out I did something wrong, and that will just cut me deeper.

I don't know what to make of this. I don't.

And to top it off, I'm feeling unbearably lonely and lovelorn tonight, in the way that only besotted teenagers can. I should make icons, or something. Something useful, and cheering. Instead, I will do my usual - that is, take down Anne Bishop/Robin Hobb and read the parts that make me cry over and over again. Maybe I'm trying to make myself numb to them. Maybe I think that if I sink deeply enough into the character's woes, I don't have to think about my own. Maybe I'm just a masochist. If I feel really awful, I'll take down Queen of Darkness and reread the end. That's the top weepy book. It actually gets me sobbing. Is that pathetic?

And to top it all off, why not listen to my playlist of depressing music. How about it?

I miss you guys. Wish you lived closer. Sometimes one's real life friends just don't seem to be enough.

Love,
Lise the Masochist

Whee, polygamy and marriages to multi-gendered fictional people!

You may tease me about the Balto 2 one. Had to do it, though. Oh, the teenage angst.

Meanwhile. Added a few for the sake of being able to add them.

Review of Robin Hobb stuff coming up...eventually. Yeah.

Wubs to you guys! *is too lazy to actually do a meaningful update*
