I was tagged by the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] birdienl, so here goes! :)

The rules:
- Thank and link back to the person who tagged you.
- Tell us how you were introduced to Jane Austen and share one fun fact about your Janeite life (this fun fact can be anything from "I stayed up all night reading Emma" to "I visited Chawton and met Anna Chancellor.").
- Answer the tagger's questions.
- Write seven questions of your own.
- Tag as few as one or as many as seven other Janeites and let them know you've tagged them.

My introduction to Jane Austen: My memory is a little fuzzy, but I think it was because my Mom mentioned that I might like the A&E miniseries of Pride and Prejudice. Naturally, she was right! After that, I gobbled up other adaptions, and then the books. It's all a haze to look back on.

Fun fact about my Janeite life: I've never really taken to the word "Janeite." I feel like that is a word for a descendant or something. But I can't think of any term that works better, so Janeite will do. :)

On to the questions! )

Leave me a comment o' randomness; your favorite quote, the best sandwich in the world, a good song lyric, what color pants you're wearing, and I'll respond with five questions you can answer in your own LJ leaving with them an open invitation for other people to give you comments o' randomness. Then you can ask them questions and before you know it we'll all know everything about everyone.

I was tagged by [livejournal.com profile] florencia7, so here goes!

1. What is your favorite book adaptation of all time?
Oh my goodness, that's a tough one! If I absolutely have to choose, it's the 1995 Pride and Prejudice mini-series. Basically, I want every. single. one. of Jane Austen's books to be adapted in something that lengthy. Especially Mansfield Park, because I feel somebody needs to adapt it in way to show haters just how strong Fanny Price is, even if they do think she's only a mouse.

2. If you could have any fictional character for a brother/sister, who would it be?
Brother: probably Laurie from Little Women. That would be so much fun! Sister: Elinor Dashwood. I could always depend on her. :)

3. Which fandom inspired you to make your very first icons?
I think my very first icons, which I never posted and probably have deleted by now, were Pride and Prejudice and Lord of the Rings.

4. Summer days or winter nights?

5. What do you think heaven/afterlife is like?
I'm Christian, so I definitely believe we go before God and learn whether we're written in His Book of Life after we die. But after that, I'm not sure if we just rocket straight to heaven, since technically, as far as I know, the Bible never says, "And as soon as the elect die, they soar up into the heavens to abide there forever." It does talk about the kingdom Jesus establishes on earth after He comes back again, and also that we'll glorify Him eternally. So, long story short, I think when He comes back again, He'll restore our bodies to the glory we were intended to display before the Fall, and then we'll abide under His rule here on earth. But until then, I'm not entirely certain. I'll just trust on faith. (Sorry for long answer. ^^)

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 . . . )

Snagged from [livejournal.com profile] welshgater.

You're on my Friends List. I want to know 35 things about you. I don't care if we never talk, or if we already know everything about each other. Short and sweet is fine ... You're on my list, so I want to know you better! Be honest! Copy from here and then answer in a comment. Then re-post the empty questions on your LJ.

01) Are you currently in a serious relationship?
02) What was your dream growing up?
03) What talent do you wish you had?
04) If I bought you a drink what would it be?

Your main fandom of the year?
DO NO MAKE ME CHOOSE. I'm hopelessly divided as it is. :)

Here is the rest . . . )

Ship Meme

Snagged this irresistible meme from [livejournal.com profile] litlover12.

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.
4. Fandom hints will be given if asked in the comments.

I'm afraid some of these (okay, all of them!) will be painfully obvious, especially since I'm sure some of my f-list has a few ships in common, but oh, well. Also, I really love using people's pedigrees as hints. :)

EDIT: Glitch fixed. Wow, LJ. Just wow.

On to the list . . . )

Letter meme: Comment to this entry and I'll give you a letter. List ten things that you love that begin with that letter and then post that list on your journal.

[livejournal.com profile] litlover12 gave me the letter A, so here goes . . .

Arwen Undomiel.
Anne Elliot.
Austen--Jane Austen. XD
Alan Rickman.
Amazing Grace.
Apple pie.
Audrey Hepburn.

Wow, was it ever hard to pick just ten things! :)
ever_maedhros: (Default)
Rules (if you actually feel like following them XD)
1. Comment.
2. I'll reply with a letter, if you so desire.
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.

[livejournal.com profile] litlover12 gave me the letter A.

1. Aragorn, Lord of the Rings
Also known as Elessar, Wingfoot, Son of Arathorn, Heir of Elendil, Heir of Isildur, etc. etc. etc. One of the many incredible characters populating Tolkien's Middle Earth. I greatly admire this man's courage and discipline, even though I tend to overlook him just a tad, what with my Elf obsession. XD

03. Who did you want to be as a child?
Laura Ingalls Wilder. Now, I want to be Jane Austen. XD

Whether I should try to make some brownies now or later.

Probably dogs. I love cats, too, but I have a family member who's allergic to them. :(

10. If you came across £2000 (or other currency) would you keep it or turn it in?

Probably trying to motivate myself to work on my book so I can get it ready for submitting queries.

18. What are you doing tomorrow?
Probably going to watch MI-5 and Middlemarch back-to-back with my Mom. :D

19. What was your favourite childhood activity?
Making up even more stories about Laura Ingalls Wilder and her family, because the books weren't enough for me. That's a good background for an aspiring novelist to have, right? ;)

Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] lady_turner.

Which Egyptian Goddess Are You?
You are Nephthys. As a goddess you are Nephthys who was the personification of darkness and all that belongs to it. The underworld and all things dark are your domain. As a person you are most likely a very tortured soul or at an unending spiritual peace. That all depends on whether you embrace your darkness or find yourself constantly pitted against it. Professionally you'd be a good mortician or politician. Don't worry, its okay to be bad.

Whoa. I was NOT expecting this result. I'm not sure whether to laugh or to be (mildly) disturbed. XD

Firmness of rock.
