Another info dump! )

In response to this meme I was given the following list from [ profile] dqbunny:

Info dump ahead!  )
mercy_angel_09: (Luna Lovegood)
Shamelessly swiped from the lovely [ profile] dqbunny.

Comment to this post saying "FIVE!" and I will pick five things I would like you to talk about. They might make sense or be totally random.

Then post that list, with your commentary, to your journal. Other people can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself, hopefully for the rest of eternity!
mercy_angel_09: (Eleven)
1. Comment with "May the odds be /ever/ in your favor!"
2. I will give you a letter.
3. Post the names of five fictional characters whose names begin with that letter, and your thoughts on each. The characters can be from books, movies, or TV shows

[ profile] earthstar_moon gave me the letter E. If you'd like to see the first batch of letter E candidates, please check out this entry.

1) Elizabeth Bennett, Pride & Prejudice - I think we can all agree that Elizabeth Bennett is awesome. And the way that Jane Austen uses her character to poke holes (and fun) at the social expectations of the day was brilliant. She's a strong female lead, who wants to live her own life and while there are certain social constraints she must abide by, she wants to bow to no one.

2) Ermengarde, A Little Princess - I always felt awful when Sara lost everything, but the fact that even though she's lost all of her material wealth, she still had Ermengarde's friendship somehow made everything better. Ermengarde, who is introduced as being so shy and aware that she's not smart or pretty, risks everything to maintain her friendship with Sara even though it's considered socially unacceptable. As a girl I always felt that it was a sign of hope, that things would eventually get better for Sara and that everything would be okay in the end.

3) Eyal Lavine, Covert Affairs - Oh man. Where to start? Eyal started off as a contact of Annie's in one episode, but apparently was popular enough in the fandom that he was brought back for two more episodes and Oded Fehr is willing to come back and do more episodes if asked. He's a great foil to Annie. She's all rookie optimism, he's the jaded one with the experience. On top of which they are HOT together - I always feel like my TV is going to explode from all of the hot they produce.

4) Ernie, Sesame Street - ♫Rubber ducky, you're the one...♫ Honestly, I loved Ernie when I was a kid. I couldn't miss a segment with him. Or Super Grover, but that's an entirely different entry. He was a little out there, which resonated with me. I was always the odd duck out, in my own little world, doing my own thing and to a degree so was Ernie. I'm a bit neater than he is, though. XD

5) Emily Gilmore, Gilmore Girls - Oh where to even begin? I sometimes saw my grandmother in Emily - domineering, micromanaging, do as I say right now or I will make your life hell. I could see a lot of my family in Gilmore Girls, actually, but the parallels between Emily and Lorelai and my grandmother and my mother was eerie. Ultimately I love that Emily is an extremely complex character and that as the series progresses we get to see more of what's underneath the iron lady veneer.

Wow, that was actually pretty difficult. Having done "E" before I didn't want to repeat so I had to wrack my brain coming up with five more characters with "E" names. Apparently fictional characters with "E" names are kind of rare. I had to dig into guest characters and children's programming to come up the full list. o.O'

The True Fan
OOC is blasphemy, canon is everything.

Once you fall in love with a movie, book or TV series, you are loyal like an old dog. You take fanfiction quite serious and use it as a substitute after the canon ran out.

You are probably a walking dictionary of your favourite fandom and you are picky about what you write and read. The closer to the "real thing" fanfiction is, the more you like it.

You rather explore a character in all depth, see new sides and learn more about them than creating new characters or mix up the situations they are in.

Y'know, I actually believe this. And if you feel so inclined, you can take the quiz here. You will have to create an OkCupid account to see your results but you don't have to do anything with it after that.

Or you could do more quizzes. XD

And then there were LULZ. )

I cannot get over the ridiculousness of this list. Seriously. Though meeting the newest love of my life to the theme from The Mickey Mouse Club is a little strange. Same goes for making a last stand to "Kokomo."

I wonder about my taste in music sometimes.

Still accepting Christmas card requests via this entry! Go ahead and drop off a request and an address if you feel so inclined.

And now a meme.

Stolen from both [ profile] earthstar_moon and [ profile] dqbunny.

1. Think of up to 20 ships you support.
2. List them using descriptions of the characters involved rather than their names.
3. Have your f-list guess as many of the ships as they can.

See tags for the fandoms. That might help a little. I don't think they're too hard, though. )

So I'm something like a day and a half ahead in NaNo, so I might take it easy for the next couple of days. Or not. Sometimes, once I get going, I can't stop and 2000 words later I'm looking at the clock going, "Oh, time for bed!" As it stands I'm averaging about 2050 a day. Roughly.

And if you're on NaNo's official website, you can add me as a friend here.

And now for a meme, ganked from [ profile] randomdiversion:

The instructions:
1. What's the first word that comes to mind when you think of me?
2. Go to and search for that word.
3. Reply to this post with one of the pictures on the first page of results (don't tell me the word).
4. Put this in your own blog so that I can do the same.

I felt Shigure, author of cheap porn novels, was an appropriate icon for this post. XD

From [ profile] dqbunny:

Ask me a question about one of my fanfics. It can be absolutely anything in any fic and I will tell you the honest-to-god answer. Don’t hold back. Whatever you ask, I'll answer truthfully. You can also ask about my writing as a whole, if you like.

My profile has all of my fics that are published, completed are not. Feel free to browse and ask if something strikes your fancy.

From [ profile] lukecanwaltz88:

1) Give me a pairing.
2) Give me an AU setting.
3) I will write you a three-sentence fic.

And now, because it's not listed anywhere, a list of my pairings:

Ships Ahoy! )

The ever elusive list of my ships. I don't know if I've ever posted a comprehensive list before. XD I may have to copy/past this to my profile or something.

1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc.)
2. Put it on shuffle.
3. Press play.
4. For every question, type the song that's playing.

First off, meme from [ profile] dqbunny:

Post a comment, and I will reply with one or two reasons why I think you're great. In return, you have to post this same meme on your blog and comment for other people.

And now a recipe for Cheater's Arroz con Pollo (that's chicken and rice for you non-Spanish speakers):

2-3 cups pre-cooked chicken, chunked
Two cups uncooked rice
Chicken broth
1-2 cups frozen peas (or fresh, if you have 'em)
Manzanilla olives

1) Determine how much chicken broth you need to cook the two cups of rice. (With standard long grain white rice, it's a 1:2 ratio, meaning for every one cup of uncooked rice you need two cups of liquid to cook it in.) Put it in a large saucepan or soup pot and bring to a boil.

2) Once broth is boiling, add frozen peas, and return to boil.

3) Once the broth and peas are boiling again, add chicken and rice. Stir rice and chicken into the broth and peas, and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook rice according to instructions. (With standard long grain white rice, cook time is about twenty minutes, sometimes more. The last time I made it, I had to cook the rice for half an hour and it was still a little crunchy.)

4) Once the rice has fully cooked, remove from heat and stir. Top with sliced manzanilla olives and serve.

There is, of course, a longer and much more traditional way of doing this, which involves a whole, uncooked chicken that you simmer for a good part of the day to make chicken stock, which you then use to cook the rice, as well as removing all of the meat from the chicken to put into the arroz con pollo.

While I do love to cook, I don't like dealing with whole chickens because generally it's a pain in the ass to get them properly butchered so you can cook them. Also, my husband and I tend to buy a bag of frozen chicken breasts and then grill or bake them all up at once to use in other dishes, like tacos, enchiladas or salads. It's easy to plan the cheater's version of arroz con pollo than the full version, which, as I previously mentioned, would have to be baby-sat all day while it simmered and made stock. This I can crank out in half-an-hour to forty-five minutes. And it gives me plenty of leftovers. (Leftovers being the key.)
mercy_angel_09: (Amon)
Letter thoughtfully provided by [ profile] trystan830:

1) Alexis Castle - Castle: I think Alexis is the kid that everyone wants. She's mature and responsible for her age, but is still able to be a kid. Plus the relationship that she has with her father is amazing.

2) Aryun Sun - Farscape: Aryun. She's just a badass. She kicks ass and takes names, protecting her "family" with everything she has, denying her attraction to Crichton, and generally generally being a badass.

3) Aurora - Disney's Sleeping Beauty: She's probably my favorite Disney Princess. I'm not entirely sure why, it could be that I can relate to her on some levels. Also, I love her dress. And it's BLUE, damn it.

4) Ami Mizuno - Sailor Moon: Sure...she seems like the demure one, but Ami is perfectly capable of opening up a can of whoop ass on anyone who she sees as a threat to her friends. She gets so pissed off at one point she actually creates a new attack. Do not mess with the sailor senshi of Mercury.

5) Amon - Witch Hunter Robin: Let's face it, there's a lot of about him we don't know, and that's never revealed in the series. That said, they do manage to hammer home several defining character moments all while keeping his mysterious allure. (WHR fans note that part of the reason why Amon is so attractive is that his past is still very much shrouded in mystery.)
mercy_angel_09: (Eleven)
Letter thoughtfully provided by [ profile] americanfairy:

1) Prince Eric - Disney's The Little Mermaid: Eric, I less-than-three you. You know why? Because you belong to the school of Royals Who Actually Do Something and Princes With Personality. Plus, he impaled Ursula to save the girl he loves. C'mon, what's not to like about the guy?

2) Princess Elincia - Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance & Radiant Dawn: Again, a member of the Royals Who Actually Do Something. Okay, yes, she's pretty useless in the first game, but in Radiant Dawn she takes a level in badass and not only is she capable of one hit kills, she's also a competent mobile medic, which is extremely useful for getting through the final maps.

3) Eleventh Doctor - Doctor Who: Oh Eleven, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. 1) Bowties are cool. 2) Fezzes are cool. 3) Stetsons are cool. He takes adorkable and ramp it up to eleven pun intended.

4) Eowyn - The Lord or the Rings: She kicks ass and takes names. A strong female character who is also feminine. Not saccharinely so, but enough to remind you that she is a lady - a lady who can beat the crap out of you if she felt it was necessary.

5) Eomer - The Lord of the Rings: Okay, being played by Karl Urban in the films (thank you New Zealand!) didn't hurt his character at all. That said, he's a badass amongst badasses - but he's also extremely loyal to his men and his friends.

I was stuck until I remember that LoTR is packed with characters whose names start with "E" and that I adore all of them. XD
mercy_angel_09: (Tamaki)
Meme from [ profile] earthstar_moon:

1. Comment with "DON'T SAY GOOD-BYE!"
2. I will give a letter.
3. Post the names of five fictional characters and your thoughts on each.

1) Tamaki Suoh - Ouran High School Host Club: Oh Tamaki-kun, you're just precious. No. Really. He's a total moron, truth be told, but he's so genuinely sweet that you can't help but think of him like a humanoid golden retriever.

2) Tohru Honda - Fruits Basket: She's a special brand of love that can defrost even the coldest of hearts. Like Tamaki, she's genuinely sweet, but behind her kind smile is a seriously broken girl. Thankfully, for all the love she gives she seems to inspire it in return.

3) TARDIS - Doctor Who: Don't tell me the TARDIS isn't a character. She is! She stole a Time Lord (or the Time Lord stole her, we're not sure) so she could see the universe! She knows the Doctor's moods and knows where he should be even when he's not entirely sure where he should be. She will always be his sexy thing.

4) Tenebrae - Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World: In a world of either super cheerful determinators or really angsty emo heroes and villans, we got Tenebrae, All Mighty Snarker and Centurion of Darkness. A welcome breath of fresh air as he snarked and sniped about EVERYTHING.

5) Trowa - Gundam Wing: I can't even pinpoint why I love him. Just everything about his character, the hidden depths that we're teased with but rarely see is probably the main reason, though. That, and I thoroughly approve of his use of MORE DAKKA to get the job done. One Macross Missile Massacre coming up!

That said, I really had to wrack my brain to come up with answers for this, as Tamaki and Tohru were the only ones who came to mind. The rest required sifting through my different fandoms to find characters who qualified. Apparently there aren't a lot of characters whose names start with the letter T in my fandoms. Hmmm.
