Back and still alive! Although...worried. Very worried. I can't find my notebook.

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 [livejournal.com profile] 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 [livejournal.com profile] 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.

Icons:
1-4: A Game of Thrones HBO
5-8: BtVS/Angel
9: Supernatural
10-19: Tangled
20: John Keats (Bright Star)


icons here! )
...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 )

And here we go with the faceoffs, generated by the randomizer (SO DON'T BLAME ME)

[Poll #1715095]

[Poll #1715096]

[Poll #1715097]

[Poll #1715098]

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.
It's because I can't write right now. I mean, other than this, obviously. I have a bunch of fics open and I'm staring at them and banging my head against the wall. This is acutely frustrating. COME ON, WORDS. COME BACK.

...also I'm having a really hard time coming up with 10 important/inspiring people on that meme, and I don't feel right listing Neil Gaiman ten times, possibly with Vienna Teng and Misha Collins there too.

So you know. I'll be back with that when I can think of ten people I really admire. (Is this a bad thing? ...probably.)

In the meantime! An old but classic meme that I always have fun with (and other people do too? Sometimes)

Pick one of the characters I RP and ask them any question you wish. The puppets will reply to these questions themselves, using their own journal and my generous typist services.

...you know, non-RP partners are welcome to ask questions too. In fact, I'd love it if you did.

I party hard, folks.

Not much to say about life at the moment...just working my way through school, still. I will be a youngster for two more days. This is really weird to me, I have to say.

...oh, and I disabled anonymous commenting, because I was getting really sick of spam telling me I need to enlarge my penis. So...sorry? I don't really get many anonymous commenters anyway, other than spammers.
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.

So say, hypothetically, I wanted a hypothetical PB for a hypothetical Rand al'Thor that I might hypothetically play. Who, hypothetically, would you recommend for the job? Because I'm drawing a hypothetical blank. Playing anime characters at least I don't have to worry about this...

Derp derp derp. This meme again! It's too much fun to deny. And it gives me a chance to try out the people I may hypothetically not be playing. You know how it is.

MEME A:
1) list all the puppets you mun ;
2) invite your flist to ask them questions to your muses directly;
3) reply to the questions in character, with the puppet journal.

OR

MEME B:
1) choose a puppet and I will tell you:
+ the last thing they did on screen
+ the last thing they did offscreen
+ the last thing they did out of RP canon (if applicable)
+ why I picked them up
+ how I got into that fandom
+ the last thing they want in life
+ the most important event of their lives (in RP canon)
+ the person they would miss the most
+ their dying words
+ three random, quirky facts about them.


list of puppets, by fandom (including some I don't technically play anywhere <s>yet</s>) )

And then!

Day 15 - Character you'd want to cook for you
Lelouch, because this is actually what I was just thinking about. Benefit of having him as a roommate! (See last question.) Because I mean, he's sort of like a maid. Cooking and cleaning and everything. :D And like I said, I can forgive small hobbies like terrorism, who even cares!

Plus he's pretty easy on the eyes. And those uniforms. Rawr. I'm pretty sure there's a question about that later too.

Day 15 - The first movie you saw
Oh good lord. I don't even remember. Watership Down and it explains a lot. ANYWAY I think it was probably The Lion King because that was my favorite for a long time, I only watched animal movies for the first ten years of my life (maybe more) and I just think it was. So yes. Lion King was my first movie.

Clearly my thing for evil geniuses started young?

those parts to come: everyfandom )

those parts to come: Disney )
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: everyfandom )

those parts to come: Disney )

In conclusion, the Code Geass soundtrack is awesome.
So the first one was actually originally a Hetalia meme, but I'm just going to make it multifandom. The second one is still just Disney, though. I cannot help myself, you know how it is.

And I just hope I can keep up with this for thirty days. XD Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] sakru909.

Day #1 - Your favorite character
This is so haaaaard. Usually it switches every day, every hour, with my fandom obsession, with who I'm roleplaying at that instant...but for the moment, my top three are probably Light, Zuko, and a close jousting match between Celegorm and a number of others. But those are the very top, and that probably won't last more than a week before at least one position switches around. That's how my brain works, augh.

Day #1 - Your favorite character (Disney)
Easier, but still difficult. I'm going to have to say Milo, though, because he is underappreciated for one and because he pushes all my dorky and Convictionlicious buttons all over the place. Unless I can possibly count the Last Unicorn? Because she owns everyone forever. ...or Mulan, how could I forget Mulan!!! So you see, favorite characters are about as hard for me as favorite books. Even in the smaller spectrum of Disney.

all of the parts to come:everyfandom )

those to come:Disney )
For [livejournal.com profile] sakru909 via meme request. :D L/Light hateship mix; I'm rather proud of this one. I can't really read this relationship as not being full of tension, not matter how much I want something from it. That something is unquestionably not fluff and true love. It looks more like this.


.ZIP HERE

I feel so much better now that you're gone forever; I tell myself that I don't miss you at all )

Ohlookbulletpoints.
  • I watched The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo on Friday, officially breaking my rule of reading the book first. And damn, it was good. Kind of hard to watch, in places, but good. And Noomi Rapace is seriously my new girlcrush. No seriously, look at her. Such a fucking BAMF. And I am kind of embarrassed to say it, but the way she rocks her style is fucking awesome. Just look at this. ...so yeah. Also her name is Noomi Rapace. And she speaks Swedish. That is what I call sexy.
  • I also finished Season 2 of Dexter. Last night. Yes, on Friday I was two episodes in, what of it? I don't want to hear anything about it. More on that behind the cut, but I thought I'd let my adoring fans friends who watch know that I'm catching up to youuu you'll be in trouble any day now. Also am compiling a list of my favorite episodes of both Death Note and Dexter, so I can keep track of them. Or more like 'moments, in episodes' but really.
  • Have begun reading Watchmen, am not sure what I think just yet. Have continued reading Death Note, I love the expressions. And I have three one page reflections to write that will take me almost no time, but have been avoiding doing them for something like three weeks. Failme.
  • Have Dexter fanfiction half written/mostly written in my notebook. This is either a good thing or a problem. Am still not sure which.
  • May be uploading my FSTs again over the next few whiles. Watch this space, I'll let you know.
And now, a crapton of memes from various places. All reposted. What can I saw, I'm a repetitive sort of person.
  • Ask any of my puppets a question in comments and they will answer you, in character. Crack ensues. It's fun. For an example, more or less, of how this works, see this post.
  • Give me a character and I will give you several facts about them according to my own personal canon. This can range from their birthday, favorite color or even their earliest memory up to what they had last night for dinner.
  • Comment and give me a topic for a music mix. I will make & upload said mix. Then post this in your own journal.
  • The voicepost meme. Provide a topic (or two or three) and I will babble.
  • Name one of my characters, and I'll make & upload a mix I think that character would listen to. Then post this in your journal.
  • If you have at any time recently felt unhappy, unloved, lonely, depressed, or just bitter about the world in general, comment here and I will tell you why having you on my flist makes my life better, why you matter to me, why, in short, you are an awesome person. Open to anyone on my flist who would like to comment. My replies to individuals are screened. If you need it, comment away, and I'll give you a dose of good old fashioned loving.
A few more recs have been added to my fandom recs post, including "Office Politics" which is crack and somewhat OOC but too hilarious to resist.

Re: Season Two...episodes 9, 10, and 11 are probably my favorite episodes ever. In any season, so far. More on that later, other than briefly how much I want to punch Lila. In the face.

It is raining again, and my mood is rather bleak and drear.

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!

ALSO, A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO [livejournal.com profile] trialia, AND MAY SHARON DEN ADEL TEAR OFF THREE FEET OF HER SKIRT IN FRONT OF YOU MORE OFTEN. &hearts &hearts
...I want this.

...yeah that second meme. XD

Go to A Softer World, pick the strip that most represent the characters you play or write/wrote and have at it. Have people guess which strip is which character.


Not all characters, obviously, so: Maeglin, Felix Harrowgate, Celegorm, Curufin, Faraday, Cassandra of Troy, Sandor Clegane, Jaenelle Angelline, Karla, Locke Lamora, Melisande Shahrizai, Oberyn Martell.

image heavy, obviously. )

I'll go be productive later.

For the moment, I love this thing too much and just can't help it.

Ask any of my puppets a question in comments and they will answer you, in character. Crack ensues. It's fun. For an example, more or less, of how this works, see this post.

That's really all I've got. Other than my raging desire to know what the font [livejournal.com profile] iconzicons uses is. I like that font, guys. I NEEEEED TO KNOW also my family's immigration heritage. This could be hard, seeing as my family is currently not around to be talked with.

Disturbingly apathetic? Maybe just a little.

Elves are sparkly.
Lesstrythis. I need something fun.

Ask any of my puppets a question in comments and they will answer you, in character. Crack ensues. It's fun. For an example, more or less, of how this works, see this post.

I still need to post a couple fanmixes that have been done for ages and I'm just putting off. Lolsigh, I'm lazy.

BUT YES this thing is fun, people should ask things. My people will converse with you. Baiting elves is especially fun hint.

I am obsessed with the song "Viva Discordia" by That Handsome Devil. It is so freaking catchy oh my god. Kind of ridiculous. Doing pretty well overall, really glad that this week is almost over. Mostly updates!post and some writing things. November is coming, did you bring your coat? More on NaNoWriMo as it gets closer. Though "closer" will be pretty soon. Also Wheel of Time in a few dayssss!

I'm a bit excitable now. ...and GOD THIS SONG. It's weird but I can't stop listening o.o

In other news, look what came in the mail today!

yes, more russian update, I'm sorry )

We'll see if more comes of it.

Secondly, I counted and have twenty prompts on the Five Things meme. Writing them in drabbles or sort of, so these will be coming a bit at a time, though I'm hoping to get them all done before too long so I can work on extending those 'one sentence fics I've never written' prompts I want to expand.

FOR THE MOMENT THOUGH.
