[ profile] levyrasputin has some great memes:

1- List from a minimum of 5 to a maximum of 15 characters you quite usually write/roleplay/simply immedesimate with, from any fandom.
2- People would pic one from that list and you have to HONESTLY answer with something YOU normally do that you think would be fitting for chosen character.
3- The commenter has to HONESTLY tell if they see the thing you mentioned actually fitting the character you associated it with.
4- Play fair, but try to be as creative and as detailed as your honest answer can get!

Also, a meme stolen from [ profile] levyrasputin:

Name a pairing. I will give you the following.

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

Lifted from [ profile] ladyassassin27: Post a little bit of each WIP you have (or as many as you want to pick). No context, no explanations.

Also: a glimpse of my current Photoshop working area because I’m trying to work out skin tone shading for William. He could presumably be as pale as Dietrich but my sense of aesthetics wants to make him darker. On the other hand I don’t want to use the same choice as I use for Radu and I’m not entirely sure if William should be darker or paler than Radu anyway. If I was colouring an Isaak icon this would have been so much easier since I could just make him anaemically pale instead. And, yes that Radu image still has defined eyes without the background layer. That’s because I put eye makeup on all the Radu images for the most part.

I steal memes from [ profile] nekonexus:
Ask me one fandom-related question in the comments. This can be fandom-specific, general, or about fandom/lj stuff/fic writing/etc. in general. Favorite character, favorite moment, unpopular opinion, something about a fic of mine... whatever. Wackiness encouraged. Once I answer, you can ask again.

Also: Silent Hill 4: trapped in his flat - Yahtzee, Silent Hill 4 and Reeves & Mortimer

In other news, I’ve never regarded myself as a combat-driven gamer: if I want to playing a fighting game I’ll go play one but I’ve always thought myself happy with point and click adventures as well. That said, replaying Blood Omen I’ve found myself thinking that I’d quite happily do unspeakable things to Kain’s doubtless decomposing business in exchange for just one combo that wasn’t hit attack repeatedly until he laughs, shouts “Vae victis” or something dies. Still, at least directional blood suck is always entertaining.

As recommended by [ profile] blasphemiliar, Omnia’s reading of Poe’s The Raven which at the start reminds me a little of the Potter Puppet Palls’ Snape.

Picture Perfect (PG. Comedy. 2611 words.)
Cain’s new camera: Isaak & Dietrich in front of its lens. (An in-universe explanation for that official piece of fanservice featuring Isaak & Dietrich.)

I Have no Mouth, and I Must Scream - Harlan Ellison (

Courtesy of [ profile] sf_drama the old argument that you can’t look things up yourself with a side helping of needing to be taught everything about life at school and this, which the linked commenter sums up better than I could.

Because I did that "Comment to this post and I will give you a letter. Upload and share five songs beginning with that letter" meme and [ profile] blasphemiliar awarded me the letter ‘c’ for ‘chervil’.

"It has always been the prerogative of children and half-wits to point out that the emperor has no clothes. But the half-wit remains a half-wit, and the emperor remains an emperor."

- Neil Gaiman (The Kindly Ones)

Also, an opportunity to tell me to shut up in a context where I can’t actually trace your IP:


The quote and the meme are unrelated though it occurs to me that posting them together implies otherwise. Regardless, I somehow doubt that a critique of my writing would really equate to a criticism of my personal qualities, which are of course: astounding. Bearing in mind that astounding is a rather neutral term by way of positivism and simply implies extremes.

Picked up from [ profile] fandom_memes since I lack anything like the urgency to do much else. Even though it’s probably quite similar to this one at least in respect to the first part.

Name a character from one of my fandoms and I'll give you:

(a) three facts about them from my personal canon/fanon
(b) a reason he/she sucks
(c) a reason he/she is awesomecakes
(d) five things that never happened to that character and/or
(e) five people that character never fell in love with and why

Give me the names of two characters and I will tell you why character A loves character B. I might answer with a drabble, a quickbit of meta, or a list, just to make things that tiny bit more OMGSOEXCITING!

They don’t have to even be from the same series but if I have absolutely no idea who they are I reserve the right to resort to Google image search and go from there.

If you had me under your command and could make me write anything, regardless of whether or not I know the fandom or if anybody even writes fic in that fandom and no matter how crack-addled it might be, what would you love to see me write?

Not that I’ll necessarily write anything but we’ll see.

Memes snitched from [ profile] nekonexus because it’s just that sort of a day. And since it’s just occurred to me that I forgot to turn anonymous commenting back off again anyone’s really free to have at these.

Seeing as I’m feeling vaguely meme-ish:

Name a character and I’ll tell you both what I absolutely adore about them as well as what I find irritating. And I’ll probably thrown in a track, book or film that I associate with said character too.

I’d have done the ‘things I hate about x fandom’ meme but it would have grown dull if I was consistently answering "the fans" to that question each time.

And/Or to take my cue from LJ’s 'writer’s block' question box:
Pick your favourite of my current userpics and I’ll... say something about it. Including [ profile] mpegasus’ too if you like.

Also, throwing this out there because I’m certain I’ve done this one before anyway:

Ask any of my fan [or original] characters a question and I'll reply in-character as them with an answer. Characters that I play in RPGs count, too. Feel free to ask them ANYTHING, regardless of whether you know them or not. Feel free to also ask them as your own character. They will respond accordingly from their game canon, or RP canon, whichever you want.

Ask a couple of them different questions if you like too since I’m procrastinating.
Though fair warning, Pegasus doesn’t have a Zagat guide and is likely to lie about any restaurant information contained there in to the point of quoting American Psycho.

Entirely at random because I felt like sharing. There’s something of a theme in there too. Seven tracks I’ve been listening to at the moment:
Gawazi - Omar Faruk Tekbilek
La Condesa - Dracula: el musical
Nosferatu - Dracula: the musical (concept album)
Civic Festhall - Planescape: Torment OST
Nightmarish Waltz - Silent Hill 4 OST
Erotica (remix) - Razed in Black vs Trasmutator
Dance Me to the End of Love - Leonard Cohen

And a meme stolen from [ profile] nekonexus:

Name a character and I'll tell you three (or more) facts about them from my own personal pseudocanon.

Original characters are fair game too really.

Filched from [ profile] herit.

1. Comment in this post with a pairing, a character, or a fandom theory.
2. I shall write you back a paragraph explaining what I think about it (good, bad, indifferent) and why.
3. Repost in your own journal if you want.

List seven songs you are into right now, no matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're not any good but they must be songs you're really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your Live Journal along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they're listening to. I never tag anyone anyway, procrastinate along if you so choose.

The Thing That Should Not Be – Metallica Lovecraft ftw.
Living Under June – Jann Arden
Sonata – Mannheim Steamroller
Kakugo 2006 – Jigoku Shoujo Futakomori OST
Susumu, Soshite Susumu – Red Garden OST
Numb – Switchblade Symphony
Chaos Theory – DJ Siaye (Silent Hill Remix)

And two bonus tracks:
Gargoyle -H...O- - Chevalier OST The soundtrack has to be the only thing I like about this.
Spookshow Baby (Rammstein Mix) – Rammstein & Rob Zombie

*makes tagging motions in the direction of [ profile] nekonexus* I should make a dexterity check for that really.

Stolen from an [ profile] antyllus.

Go here and pick 5 quotes that either represent you or what you believe in. Then tag 5 other people to do the same.

"Be extremely subtle, even to the point of formlessness. Be extremely mysterious, even to the point of soundlessness. Thereby you can be the director of your opponent’s fate."
- Sun Tzu

"To achieve greatness one should live as if they will never die."
- Francois de la Rochefoucauld

"The love of liberty is the love of others; the love of power is the love of ourselves."
- William Hazlitt

"Everything I have been taught: principles, distinctions, choices, morals, compromises, knowledge, unity, prayer - all of it was wrong, without any final purpose. All it came down to was: die or adapt."
- Bret Easton Ellis

"Mortal, guilty, but to me
The entirely beautiful."
- W. H. Auden

I didn’t go there though but these are quotes I had about anyway. I wonder what my choices say about me? This only is denied to God: the power to undo the past? Perhaps.

Today has been ridiculously placid for some reason. I don’t know if it’s because of the seasons changing or it being a quarter moon or because I’ve polished off another pot of English strawberry tea but I’m alarmingly calm at the moment.

Nothing much really )

Anyway, I suppose I should do a meme or something really while I’m feeling this placid, so while I’m in the mood you have a choice of:

Ask me anything about my writing process or Ask me why I like or dislike a certain type of tea.

A meme that I’m certain I did a while ago but was reminded of due to [ profile] abbie_chan.

Ask any of my characters a question and I'll reply in-character as them with an answer. Characters that I play in RPGs count, too. Feel free to ask them ANYTHING, regardless of whether you know them or not. Feel free to also ask them as your own character. They will respond accordingly.

With the added proviso that if you’re going to choose certain Meine Liebe characters, I have three quantum variants of Ludwig and Naoji and two Orpheri. Of course any of my original characters are fair game and perhaps also the Goddess of Discord too.

I need something to help me decide which WIP needs to be finished first after all.
