I spaced out and completely forgot that Epica released a new album in May. *hangs head in shame* It's great, and some moments are so heart-pumping, I nearly had to just sit aside and chill for a bit. Wow. Must save moneyz faster so I can buy this after some GACKT goodies. :D

This is THE BEST fandom/classic crossover fanart. EVER. The only reason I'm not screaming like a banshee and running around in circles is because I'm at work. The original painting, The Accolade by Edmund Blair Leighton, is my favorite piece of artwork of all time. Just look at the lighting there. Look at it. Magnificent, utterly magnificent. Excuse me while I bide my time till my break so I can run outside and squee.

My To Be Read List is so long, I'm coping by revisiting Marguerite Henry. She's the reason I get at least one horse calendar every year. My first introduction to her was an old copy of Misty of Chincoteague that my Dad had as a kid. Totally and completely fell in love with her writing style, and her books launched me into an obsession with horses and an appreciation for Will James. This fever lasted through my preteen and early teen years, and only mellowed out after I got a book all about horse care. Then I realized that much as I loved horses, I would never be able to make the time and effort commitment necessary for proper horse care (let alone AFFORD it financially). So now I read about horses, and sketch horses, but devote most of my obsession to fandoms. :)

I'm loving Google's home page right now.

Happy Birthday, Audrey Hepburn! You're an everlasting inspiration. <3

Also, guess what, it's Star Wars Day again! May the 4th be with you! I wish you all Jedi, Sith, and Wookiees out there a wonderful time. :D Have some wallpapers!

Where did August go? Honestly, I need to know what time is doing to speed up so fast!

Then I can do that, too, and find a way to finish my writing projects before the end of the year. My current vampire-bashing WIP (which grew into two very complex books not just about bashing vampires), and my kid's story about a wizard (which is growing way too dark for children) are both crawling along at a snail's pace.

But at the same time, I desperately want it to be October and November. Supernatural, Sherlock, Thor 2, Catching Fire. Oh, this fall is going to be so amazing!

In other news, I need to stop spending money on cute dresses, especially stuff from Korea on e-Bay. But they're all just so precious, I can't help myself! :)

I am a huge fan of the horrifically awesome TV show "Hannibal." *ducks pitchforks* Have been so ever since a tumblr friend spammed GIFs, and I realized that Mads Mikkelsen (AKA, one of my mom's fave actors) plays the famed cannibal.

I have a lot of thoughts on the subject, but while working through the comments in Cleolinda's hysterical recap series, all I can think of is this thread. BRB, I'm just going to go flail for a few solid hours.

I like the costumes (especially the dresses) and the cast (Morgana and Gwen are darling!) and the scenery. But the stories . . . well, they're kinda underwhelming. (Don't get me started on how I'm still wondering WHY Merlin has to be as young as Arthur.) I just finished the episode introducing Lancelot. And now it seems every episode goes as follows: )

The newest addition is . . . Pushing Daisies. I'd already been curious, since it has Lee Pace from The Fall and The Hobbit and Anna Friel from Our Mutual Friend. Kristin Chenoweth was an added bonus I wasn't even aware of. Watching [livejournal.com profile] msantimacassar fangirl over it finally made me get around to watching it. (Thank you SO MUCH!) It's completely ridiculous, yet utterly adorable. I just want to eat pie and watch it all day long. I got my Mom hooked on it, too, and she says Ned is a doll. :)

And now, apparently, they might try to bring it back again as a movie, like Veronica Mars. Is this real, or is this fantasy? I don't know. But it's exciting, nonetheless.

I have a great many feelings on the matter, but right now, a GIF is more appropriate than anything else.

That is all.

I'm trying to NOT let Tolkien and Austen dominate my current repertoire of icons. It's not working. :) (Those two seem to dominate pretty much every aspect of my life . . .)

Also, I am now about halfway through Season 2 of Downton Abbey, and there is just so much to digest! My goodness! I think the only way to get even half my thoughts on the page is to devote one paragraph to each character.

Since that will take a while, I'll start with the various Crawleys.

ever_maedhros: (lizzy)
. . . I finally watched the very first episode of Downton Abbey earlier this week. That took much longer than it should for any self-respecting period drama fanatic.

And I was fully satisfied that I made the right choice in just buying the entire first season, trusting the good taste of my friends. ;) It boggles my mind just how well the stage was set for all these characters to go about their various schemes, well-meaning or not-so-well-meaning.

And now I just want a week off to catch up on every single episode! Maggie Smith was magnificent, as expected. Michelle Dockery was sublime, as expected. (I don't know why Mary hated wearing black--her black dress was SPECTACULAR, and suited her very well indeed.) There were some elements I was definitely NOT expecting, though. *cough* An . . . unconventional illustration of why you do NOT dally with a Duke. *cough*

I don't know how I'm going to tip-toe around spoilers on tumblr, though. This is going to be quite the challenge!

Feel free to spam me with GIFs from the first episode--I'm having a hard time finding some amidst all the rest of them!

Fandom Fun

Guess what came in the mail today?

It's so cool! Batman + pink = bliss. My only complaint: it's bigger than I had thought. I'd hoped it would be easier to slip in a purse. Oh, well. :)

In other news, I also got Tokio Hotel's "Humanoid" CD. This makes the third TH CD/DVD I've gotten in a month. Addicted? Yes. Very much so.

Do enjoy yourself, everyone! Indulge in your fandoms, like good fans. :D

ever_maedhros: (you're kidding right)
and my real-life BFF texts me saying Disney bought Lucasfilm, and Star Wars Episode VII is slated for 2015.

My reaction . . . )

At the eager requests of [livejournal.com profile] litlover12 and [livejournal.com profile] msantimacassar, I bring forth a crossover fic about Sir Percy Blakeney meeting Severus Snape. I'm sorry it took so long to whip this up, ladies. I was afraid to start it for a long time, thinking I wouldn't be able to do the concept justice--then I decided to just get it over with, and rewrite it if I feel like it later on. Guess that is one of the beauties of writing. :)

A little tribute to two of the bravest men in fiction . . . )

*is failing spectacularly*

Why is it that every single season seems to be one long effort to put fan emotions through a wringer? And HOW do they do this, honestly?! I'm one of those people that finds it easy to get attached to fictional characters over real people, and I'm shocked at just how much they make us love these guys. I swear, if I get any more attached to/obsessed with Castiel, what little sanity I have left is forfeit.

I won't go any further, lest I spoil anyone. I'll just drop GIFs, because that's sometimes the best way to express yourself electronically.

ever_maedhros: (sam and dean)
Hello, all! Last few days have been a whirlwind of busy-ness and fatigue. (I say busy-ness instead of business, because there was nothing business-y about it. Yes, I'm feeling like butchering my native--and only--language today.) Fun, but not fun, because I've been separated from my preciousssss, the internet and the people on it. :D

But now I must fangirl over the premiere of Supernatural Season 8. This is special to me in so many ways, because for the first time, I'm caught up on a TV series just as it's actually, factually happening. That is an awesome feeling, minus the suspense rendered by commercials and waiting an entire week for the next episode. I'm used to blazing through 2 to 4 episodes a day.

Without dropping too many spoilers, let's just say I really enjoyed the episode, but felt it just a tad off. Like they had to amble through a set-up of the premise that really felt like nothing had happened, and the good stuff was still to come. Best part of the episode was, by far, our boys being reunited for the bajillionth time. That will never, ever get old.

And neither will this GIF. :D

A trend of thought seems to have emerged in The Hunger Games fandom. When people think Katniss Everdeen, they think of a strong, powerful heroine. Katniss has basically become the symbol of young girl without a single weakness.

Why do so many people assume Katniss Everdeen has no weakness? Where does Suzanne Collins state or imply in her Hunger Games trilogy that her heroine has no weakness?


So what gave people that idea? )
ever_maedhros: (love elves)
Let me repeat that, ladies and gentlemen.


Excuse me while I flail for the rest of the evening. I don't think I'll get any sleep, I'm so excited!

ever_maedhros: (christine hannibal)
Tell me you want to play and I'll pick up to three of your fandoms (a list might be helpful). Then update your journal and answer the following questions:

1. What got you into this fandom in the first place?

2. Do you think you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?

3. Favorite episodes/books/movies, etc?

4. Do you participate in this fandom (fanfiction, graphics, discussions)?

5. Do you think more people should get into this fandom?

[livejournal.com profile] litlover12 chose these for me: "Phantom", Jane Austen, and Audrey Hepburn.

Warning--I get really long-winded when I talk about stuff I love . . . )
