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.


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 [ 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 [ 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.

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

icons here! )
So I have had this in the works for ages and ages but have not gotten around to posting it 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 )



So I readily admit I stole the idea from somebody else but I HAVE A NEED, OKAY? A BURNING NEED for people to ask fictional characters ridiculous questions. To that end:

Light Yagami's formspring
Celegorm'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.

There is an article on the Yahoo homepage.

"Giant lizard hailed as remarkable discovery," and then, "see bigger photo" "find famous cousin", and "man attacked by wombat."

Best non-sequitur ever.
...sort of. First of all, I finally went through and did a grand total stats toll of my deathfic. For the purposes of this count, Deathfic is defined as fic focused around or on the death of one or more major characters.

Total: 23
A Song of Ice and Fire: 6
Caliban Leandros: 1
Doctrine of Labyrinths: 2
The Silmarillion: 14

I would just like you to look at those numbers for a moment. Just. Yes, look.

Moving right along.

So, because of that book of disappointing short stories, I got thinking about short stories I do like, and I decided that I wanted to have a collection of them somewhere. You know, like a recommendation post. And the more I thought about it the more I liked the sheer organization of this idea. And I could even give people the books I have them in! Or a link to them if they can be found online! yeah, that's what this is. Recommendations, including a little blurb about what I loved. Though the links and book citations so to speak will have to wait a little. I have AP Government homework to do, whoooops.

ophelia of the spirits has a new album, also. this makes me happy. )

That's what I've got, for now. Of I go to read for three classes, and wonder why I have never listened to much 30 Seconds to Mars before now. *is so secretly an emo kid it disgusts her sometimes*

And goodnight. Much love to you all. I'm sure there is something I'm forgetting to do.

(Probably babble about elves. I haven't done that in a while. Some of you are probably grateful for this.)

Also, Haiti fic. Tomorrow, you slacking little bitch.

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 [ 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.

[ profile] coppertone said, "Has Vienna Teng ever in her life written a song that can not be applied to elves?" If you are me, this is clearly a challenge. And I am pleased to announce, one that I have won. Therefore, not quite a fanmix, but something like it? Includes all the songs from all four of her released albums - but I was kind to myself and didn't include covers.

and here it is in all its glory )

Post of actual substance later. As you can see by the lack of shiny cover art, I pretty much have no. energy. And also have to drive my sister to the ferry. This is my excited face, I'm sure you can just tell. (Also, time waster of the hour: Text Twist. Cannot. Stop. Playing. Dammit.)
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.

The internet speaks truth.

That is all.

Why people insist on turning on story alerts...for my oneshots. Um, people, if it's marked as completed chances are I'm not going to finish it. End of story. >___< I do not understand people sometimes.

Also, because I feel like it: my favorite Unsolved Mysteries (TM). Enjoy. References from Wikipedia, of course. Where else? 

1. The Oak Island Money Pit. Okay, okay, so as Unsolved Mysteries (TM) go it's not that big, but...this one has always fascinated me. I'm not even sure why, as treasure hunts and such have never been really my thing...though, I have to think that whoever made this thing must have been pretty ingenious. And pretty desperate. And also kind of wonder if maybe someone didn't just do that to bury...nothing...but that's because I'm me and that's the kind of thing I would do. XD

2. Voynich Manuscript. This one actually has it, right there in the first paragraph: "has also given weight to the theory that the book is simply an elaborate hoax — a meaningless sequence of arbitrary symbols." But nonetheless, this is another one from my childhood that periodically turns up (I was a weird kid, I read about this kind of stuff all the freaking time, probably explains something) that always interests me. Mysterious manuscript, turned up out of nowhere, totally indecipherable...stuff of a book, there. I'm sure there is one, and it's probably bad, but.

3. Taos Hum. Okay, so this one, on the weird scale, is not that bad, it's just...peculiar. Because seriously what is not odd about a pervasive low frequency hum that everyone is hearing but has no apparent source? 

4. The Bloop. Two words: Cthulhu's. Rising. That is all.

5. The Mothman. I don't know what's oddest about this one - the description given of it, the way it's connected with the bridge disaster, or just...the whole story. I don't know, it's a weird thing. This probably has something to do with reading The Mothman Prophecies, though.

6. Dancing Mania. Okay, seriously - this would have to be the oddest thing ever to witness. A bunch of people. Randomly begin dancing. And literally cannot stop even as they're dropping from exhaustion. Seriously, what the hell? And sure, it's explainable, but still...weird, wacky, and awesome.

7. Dyatlov Pass Accident. Weirdest. Thing. Ever. So, basically. Couple hikers go up into the mountains. Experienced hikers. Don't come home on time. So, not that weird yet. But here's where it starts getting odd. So the search party goes up, and finds that the hikers ripped their way out of the tent - from the inside - and ran out into the snow. In their underwear. So that's odd enough, and unsurprising that they were all dead. What is weird? That "while the corpses show no signs of struggle, one victim had a fractured skull, two had broken ribs, and one was missing her tongue." And weirder? The inquest "suggested that the fatal injuries of the three bodies could not have been caused by another human being, owing to the extreme force to which they had been subjected." And. The only footprints in the snow were the hiker's. Brrr. Read the article for more, I'm going to try not to think about this too much.

8. The Green Children. After the above one, in my opinion this might be the weirdest one on here. Basically, in the 12th century, two children, a boy and a girl, appeared in a village in the United Kingdom, confused and disoriented. Their skin was colored green, they spoke an unknown language, and at first refused to eat. While the boy died, the girl survived and eventually lost her green coloring. Perhaps weirdest is the account of the surviving child. "When she learned English, she explained that they came from the 'Land of St Martin', which was dimly lit because the sun never rose far above the horizon. One day, while tending their father's herd, they heard the faraway sound of bells. They crossed a "river of light", entered a cavern and eventually found themselves in Woolpit."

Of course, all of these probably have a simple explanation. But still. Weird, interesting, and eternally fascinating to me, at least. And I don't know. But I like a little bit of the unexplained in my life...even if it creeps me the hell out.

ETA: Just realized - "end of story" hahahahaha I made a funneh. :D

But Wait, There's More!: ....okay I kind of want.

It's official. I have no life.

[ profile] i_fhtagn. The blog for everyone's favorite Old One.

At the very least it'll give me something to do every day. XD

My favorite parts so far are the icon keywords and the interests. *crawls off into hole*

Who, me? Go on eljay during a newspaper meeting? No waaaaay.

But really, this exercise cracked me up. And I had way too much fun with it. So I present: Jack and Jill in the style of News, Features, and Opinions.

I don't even know which is my favorite. XDD

Have fun! )

I am so OCD sometimes it is not even funny.

My latest?

I catalouged my entire bookshelf in author order - not including the books in storage but including the books packed in a box under the table up here - in an Excel document, by Title, Author, Preceded By..., and Followed By.... The last two for series.

I feel so accomplished. I finally finished the bookshelf itself. Onward to the box!!!

XDD I am such a loser. I know this.


And a meme, stolen from [personal profile] assimbya if anyone wants to try it.

If you've ever watched your favorite DVDs, and then found yourself eager to hear exactly what the actors, directors, writers and even production designers thought about making the episode, the movie, or whatever - you'll know sometimes the best parts of DVDs are hearing the commentaries. Getting into an actor's feelings about the character they play, getting the background behind a writer's plans and metaphors, even just getting the stupid anecdotal stuff that makes you laugh, it's all good.

Ask me about any story, and I'll do a DVD commentary for it! Satisfy your curiosity!

If my stories aren't at [profile] ficviendha (i.e. most/all of my Wheel of Time stuff), it's on FFN under Min Daae.

Or fun to crackplot.

Anyway, it is too hot here. I have no energy, no motivation, and absolutely nothing to do. I feel useless.

Perhaps tomorrow I shall call someone and go swimming. That would be absolutely delicious.
