In which I say umm alot. Also like. )

+ Signal boosting [livejournal.com profile] helpbrazil2011 and [livejournal.com profile] qldfloodauction. I'm not offering anything since I'm a bit fannishly useless and don't really write fic or draw. Take a look if you have some spare cash though! Lots of lovely talented people offering up their work for auction.

+ I've been splitting all my free time lately between watching TV season DVDs from the library and attempting to catch up with my readings (why is Hobbes so dull, I honestly come this close to drifting off everytime I read one of his paragraphs on the bus ;_;). On that first count, I would like to say season four of How I Met Your Mother is a beautiful thing of comic joy forever. You should all be watching this!

+ Thanks to my inability to read Hobbes without sleeping I've switched to using my bus time to further continue my romance reading quest! I'm three chapters into Meljean Brook's The Iron Duke and I'm really enjoying it. Her worldbuilding is so excellent! It's a Victorian AU where England was invaded by some sort of nanogene using race called the Horde. The story's set seven years after they were driven out but their impact remains in the form of the genetic modifications done to all the humans who were living under them. The heroine is a inspector dedicated to finding justice for the dead bodies she investigates. I like her already. I haven't seen enough of the hero yet to make on opinion but provided he isn't a total twit this could turn out to be my favourite romance novel to date.

+ Doritos are delicious. ♥_♥

EDIT: Five Emotions Invented By The Internet Oh my God, she's a mind reader.

- reply to this post with the words I'M SO GLAD YOU HAVE A ONE TRACK MIND LIKE ME and I will pick six of your icons.
- make a post (including this info) and talk about the icons I chose.
- other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
- this will create a never ending cycle of icon glee.

It only took me nearly three weeks to finally get around to answering this meme! That's not so bad, right? ^^ )

I am so excited about my intro to world religions course, oh my gosh. -twirls- My textbooks just came in from Amazon yesterday, they look totally awesome. Can it be September now?

Also I really really want to take the Japanese Culture and Film course except. Except it's nine credits which on top of being expensive might be overloading myself for next year. But they read Banana Yoshimoto and Haruki Murakami and the biggest complaint people seem to have on the prof on ratemyteacher is that he expects the class to lead the discussion too much and marks hard which. With a good class the first shouldn't be a problem and pfft. I CAN HANDLE YOUR MARKING SIR, BRING IT. -poses- So I guess I will have to decide something about that! Preferably soonish.

Anyways, [livejournal.com profile] hmsharmony tagged me for this meme so I'm going to do that now.

15 questions, the sequel! )

I have been seeing this meme around for awhile! And you know me, dedicated follower that I am. 8D

Ask me my Top Five Whatevers. Fannish or literary or otherwise. Any top fives. Doesn't matter what, really! And I will answer them all in a new post (or in comments). Possibly with pictures.

A Meme!

Also welcome to my lj! =D Been enjoying your entries, I apologize for the lack of comments. Too much busyness has left me sapped of all ability to think of things to say by the time I get home and on the computer.

Leave me a comment saying "interview me".

I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can satisfy my curiosity

Update your journal with the answers to the questions. Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.

Following questions are from hmsharmony )
themadpoker: (Default)
Here is a MEME. Courtesy of old school [livejournal.com profile] fannish5

1. AUs: yes please or what's the point?

The first one! I love AUs with a mad burning love. Oftentimes I will read a thing or watch a thing and imagine how it might be skewed a little to the left. This has led to amazing imaginary playgrounds like the Harry Osbourne is Harry Potter universe and the Grand Unified Theory of Actor/Character Oneness (an actor is every character they have played in a movie! For example Ella of Frell is also Jane Austen! Pirate King Elizabeth Swann was Warrior Queen Guinevere in a past life! THINK OF ALL THE POSSIBILITIES)

2. What's the best AU you've read?

DDD= I read so many AUs it is impossible to choose. But I do tend to reread The Secret of Slytherin whenever I need a cheer up so let's go with that.

3. What's the worst AU you've read?

Usually if an AU is bad I will quit. So I have no answer.

4. How would you like to see your fandom altered that you haven't seen yet?

Merlin AU with Merlin and Gwen as partners running the Camelot Detective Agency. If anyone ever writes this I will probably flail all over their comments with joy.

5. What AU worked that you never would have expected?

-ponders- You know, nothing is coming to mind right now. Though part of that is I am pretty much 100% open to all AU possibilities. I've never really seen a concept that made me go NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS (watch me remember something that caused me to say just that the minute I post).

Post Justification: Another thing I did when doing The Wall analysis was write two of my responses to my old response papers! Because I needed a break from the Floydness of it all.
themadpoker: (=D)
Man, I don't even know what I'm going to do with myself when March Fandom Madness is done. >_> I'm just really pleased with how things are going so far! I mean there are some sad things like the fact that Liz Lemon is currently losing terribly against Sheldon Cooper (look people, I have seen the comments, obviously he is a cool geeky dude with excellent t-shirts. But Liz Lemon is also a geek and if she wins she will share all the hot dogs. CHOOSE WISELY) but for the greater part it is mostly made up of excellent candidates. Buffy Summers! Donna Noble! Dana Scully! Lorelai Gilmore! When did you get so awesome on me fandom? I APPROVE.

Meme fun! )

Post Justification: I went and read this week's poli sci reading just so I could post again. xD Is it cheating if I deliberately pick my shortest piece of homework because I want to go on lj?
themadpoker: (Default)
I'd feel guilty about the fact I'm faffing about on livejournal instead of doing homework except I already did both my fantasy and tech readings for the week and I helped move boxes out of the basement for about an hour (which left my right hand doing that weird thing where it curls inward and I can't really do anything about it except hope it stops soon. Fun!). So now that the justifications are out of the way let's have a meme!

Books books glorious books )

Copied off [livejournal.com profile] hmsharmony

Comment to this post and I will give you 5 subjects/things I associate you with. Then post this in your LJ and do the same.

I am going back to school tomorrow. It is sort of sad to see my vacation ending but oh well! Nice while it lasted. I'm going to try and get at least my poli sci paper done this week so I can go and see The Lightning Thief with [livejournal.com profile] thatdayismine with a free conscience (it feels so weird to type that in, I am still inclined to say [livejournal.com profile] fabien_aybara. I WILL GET USED TO IT).

I've been reading Fables Volume 14: The Dark Ages. Something about it is bugging me but I haven't managed to pinpoint what just yet. :/ I don't know guys, any of you know that feeling you get when you read a book by someone with very different ideological beliefs from you and it's like 'gahh, his politics, get them off me'? I've run into that with Fables before -- the Arabian Nights storyline kind of made me go 'ick racism, Bill Willingham I LIKE the Thousand and One Nights stories, don't use their characters if you're going to be a jerk about it' and I had some issues with the war against the Adversary storyline as well. Not sure what's giving me the ick feeling right now though. Anyone else on the flist read this series?
themadpoker: (Default)
[livejournal.com profile] hmsharmony gave me Merlin, Doctor Who, and Avatar: the Last Airbender. From Doctor Who I've only seen season 1, the Christmas special, and the first episode of season 2. From Avatar I've seen the first fourteen episodes. So keep that in mind peeps!

Let's go! )

So hey, that was fun. SORRY I FAIL SO BADLY AT PROPERLY ANSWERING YOUR QUESTIONS [livejournal.com profile] hmsharmony.

This is the sort of meme I can get down with! Snagged from [livejournal.com profile] eska_rina.

Comment with the name of a female character (in any show, movie, book, comic, etc that you think I'm familiar with) and I'll tell you one thing I love about her. In return, you can do the same in your journal (if you like!).
themadpoker: (arthur/gwen)
This is that one shipping meme I've seen all over the place. Apparently having an exam tomorrow is a GREAT incentive towards actually writing it out.

Some of my answers are not 100% accurate on account of wanting to do a different pairing for each category. So yeah.

One True Pairing Ship: Merlin/Gwen. Friendship mostly but I can roll with romance too.
Canon Ship: Arthur/Gwen. Uther/Ygraine.
"If this happens I'll stab my eyes out with a spork" Ship: Uther/any of the main cast.
"You are one sick bastard" Ship: Uhh idk. Anything with non-con I guess.
"I dabble a little" Ship: Morgana/Merlin, Will/Morgana (there should be more of this! Cross-reference to 'no canon sense')
"It's like a car crash" Ship: Uther/Merlin. I love Merls fandom willingness to ship anything but umm NO.
"Tickles my fancy but not sold just yet" Ship: Arthur/Morgana.
"Makes no canon sense but why the hell not" Ship: Arthur/Morgause? They're both blonde and pretty, it's enough of a reason for me. =D
Everyone else loves it but I just don't feel it" Ship: Arthur/Merlin. S_S Sorry fandom but I am way burned out on this.
"When all is said and done" Ship: :/ Unfair category what. I already used Arthur/Gwen for canon ship. Morgana/Gwen then I guess. Arthur/Gwen.
OT3/OTMore Ship: Any combination of the OT4. Lancelot can join in too.

Well that was a fun waste of time. Back to studying ancient Athens then.

Meme Time!

When you see this, post your favorite poem in your journal.

I was singing this while washing the dishes the other day. :)

Fire and Ice by Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
