gwenfrankenstien: Detail from a painting of Lancelot and Guinevere's last meeting, at Arthur's tomb (used bookstore adventures)
Rules:

Pick ten books (prose novels work best; so pick no more than one play and one comic), and post your favourite line from each. (To make things more difficult, blank out any character names.)

Then it's everyone else's job to try and guess the title, the author, and the character speaking.

This is a pretty predictable list but whatever. )

So there's another upcoming epic! Game changing! Crossover! Event! from which the DC Universe will Never Be The Same, because nobody at DC actually knows what the word "Final" means. People on tumblr this morning were posting lists of "Changes to the DCU that could happen because of Flashpoint that I would LIKE to see."

So, in the spirit of that, DC-reading (and former-DC-reading) flist, let's pretend we're in charge of what gets published!

Rules: No more than ten books. No re-using the same creator for more than two books. Currently-alive creators only, although they don’t have to be working at DC. Up to half your books can have back-up features.

gwenfrankenstien: Bette and Rose from the Wolf House series (fireproof hearts)
Behind the cut are 15 song-lyric-exerpts which I associate with particular ships, your job is to guess who the songs are about. Fandoms: Arthuriana, DCU, Harry Potter, House, S&A

This list took a lot longer to make than I thought it would. )

I can only assume this was a meme that was going around last time I was rereading Once And Future King. I never posted it because a) nobody cares, Gwen and b) generally, everything I write is terrible so it never sees the light of day.

But I still think these aren't bad. (The meme in question was one of those "list ten characters, then fill in the blanks and write about it" things of which I am incredibly fond)
Seriously, why doesn't this book have a fandom to speak of? )

OH HELLO PANIC ATTACK ABOUT THE MAYORAL ELECTION AND ALSO FRENCH HOMEWORK PLEASE GO AWAY NOW YOU ARE NOT HELPFUL.

Meme, while I calm myself down: Comment and I will pick a bunch of your lj/dw interests for you to explain/talk about!

[personal profile] feverbeats gave me crazy former superheroes, cunning use of threesomes, fictional musicians, house/amber/wilson, sparkly androids, splorangeade. )

I should be in bed, I have a class first thing tomorrow. But it is Children's Lit and we are talking about Alice in Wonderland, I think I will do that better without sleep! And anyway this is a meme that it is necessary that I do, even if I doubt people will actually get most of them.

1. Pick 15 of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
5. (NO GOOGLING!/using IMDb search functions or using social networking sites.)

Alternately, use these as writing prompts because every line is GOLDEN. )

There's this Female Character Flowchart out there that I'm sure most of you have heard of already. If you haven't, let me sum it up for you: basically, all fictional female characters fall into stereotypes and aren't "realistic." Also, this flowchart is done in a way that basically anyone can be crammed into one of their categories, as long as you ignore the more three-dimensional aspects of her characterization and focus on the most two-dimensional details available.

Seriously, people who are much more articulate than me have ranted on this subject and explained why it's such a bad thing. That's not what this post is about. You see, this post? Is simply a chance for me to go through my DW/LJ icons and post the ones that I have that feature female characters, whether by themselves, with other women, with men, or simply as part of a group (which wouldn't be whole without them).

Why? Because the thing is, these women are all awesome, in their own unique ways.

HELLO INTERNET!

A few weeks ago I was like "Rargh I am bored I want school to start!"

And then right when school was about to start I got sick. Because my body loves me just that much. So I've spent the last week and a half with approximately zero energy and I already feel like I'm drowning in school. And now I have taken allergy pills and I am going to go to bed, but before I do that I am going to do this pairings meme, because it doesn't require much brain-effort at all and I feel like I've been neglecting DW/LJ in favour of Tumblr. (Which is a lot easier to do when you're sick.) Included are things I have had Feelings and/or Opinions about in the last week or so. Mostly DC, because fandom of my heart.

Exceedingly pointless. )

I have not forgotten to do this! It's just that the beginning of May is stupid-busy, what with Free Comic Book Day and all.

A Wizard of Mars, Diane Duane )Supergirls: Fashion, Feminism, Fantasy and the History of Comic Book Heroines, Mike Madrid )Callahan's Lady, Spider Robinson )
Not on the list due to Paypal problems that can't be resolved until my mom gets back from B.C.: The Wolf House: Fair Game, Mary Borsellino.

And now, for something completely different: The meme where people pick icons for you to talk about is going around!
Via [livejournal.com profile] mrs_laugh_track:
four icons + blather )So, yeah! Comment if you want me to pick some icons!

I don't even have words to describe how pissed off I am at this bullshit.

However, this is a thing that will exist! On the other hand, so is this. I don't even know anymore.

Honestly, I'm not going to even try to be clever and articulate and write angry letters, right now. I don't have time, I have two essays and three tests in the next two weeks. And there's a comic-con this weekend. And then Passover starts Monday. And then it's Easter. I am stupidly busy and also, now, really angry! And tired.

So, um, distraction time!

Comment with one or more pairing(s) I ship and I'll tell you:

1. When I started shipping them
2. What I think their challenge is
3. What makes me happy about them
4. What makes me sad about them
5. What moment I wish had never happened
6. Who I'd be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other
7. My happily ever after for them if I have one, or where I think they'll end up

Hello, Internet! I have spent the past three days obsessively reading all the Macdonald Hall fanfic I can find, because I can't get my hands on any of the actual books right now! God, I loved these books so goddamn much when I was a kid, I think they are the only series I read that didn't have a) kid wizards or b) kid detectives in. My brain is stupidly susceptible to sudden and unpredictable fits of overwhelming nostalgia, okay, it is a Thing. (Did anybody read those? Because I am pretty sure [livejournal.com profile] cws_eat_chs is sick of me talking about them already.)

I'm trying to have a higher content:meme ratio, but I guess all the Tim Burton reviews last week technically count as content. So:

-Write down twenty nineteen of your favorite pairings/threesomes/etc.
-Put your media player on shuffle. The number of the song corresponds to the number of the pairing.
-Quote a part of the song that you think has any similarity with the couple.


About half of these actually work? )

Hello, Internet! I am currently working my way through every Tim Burton film, it is an excellent distraction from the gender-normative nationalist body-fascism that is all over the Teevee right now*. But right now I need a distraction from the distraction.

So! Meme: List the first ten fandoms that come to mind. Your friends will comment with the character from each series that they think you are most like. No favorites (...unless it's legit)!

1. Batfamily
2. Runaways
3. Slings & Arrows
4. Young Justice
5. Space Cases
6. Harry Potter
7. Young Wizards
8. Discworld
9. Good Omens
10. Watchmen

* Well, okay, I've been watching the figure skating. There is always an exception for figure skating.

Browsing friendsfriends, as one does when avoiding work, and I saw a bunch of these. There's nothing I like more than pointless navel-gazing about my own drawings, and also looking at older stuff makes me feel so much better about what I can do now, so:

I love this game! It was the one Stupid Game Middle-Schoolers Play that I actually enjoyed/participated in. (Truth or Dare terrified me. And the other major one was "Who Would You Go Gay For?" which I didn't like playing for, um, obvious reasons.)

Babs, Dinah, Grindelwald, Crowley. )

The problem with LJ: We all think we are so close, but really we know nothing about one another. So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away.

This is funny because most of my RL friends read my LJ. Like, [livejournal.com profile] qahtte has known me for twelve years. I don't think there are things she doesn't know about me.

ASK ME ANYTHING, I'm bored/procrastinating, as usual.

Everybody else is doing this, so I guess I should too.

Comment with a fandom and I will tell you my:

+ OTP
+ Runner-up
+ Honorable mention(s)
+ Crack pairing(s)
+ Ship everyone else seems to like, but I don't

Basically, everything counts as a fandom. Give me more than one, if you want! I wanna talk about pairings I like! (Although, depending on the fandom, you might get "EVERYONE/EVERYONE ELSE" as a response.)
