Stolen from...I'm going to say by tomorrow morning: absolutely everyone.

If you were to ship me with another fandom person, who would it be, and why?
In an effort to actually get started on one of my resolutions, a photo meme!

Request a photo/video from any aspect of my life! It can be something as simple as my fridge, or as personal as a page from my writing journal. Be creative!

It should go without saying, no photos of me. For your own safety xD

Top Five Music Videos? Top Five Web Sites? Top Five OTP's? Nothing is off limits! Be inventive! Ask for as many lists as you want.

IDK, just indulge me, I'm bored and thirteen minutes off eating my feelings away with a block of Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate. Okay, that was a lie. It's more like six minutes.
Two memes because it's been a while since I've done one and I'm super bored. Where the fuck is everyone? HDU have lives :(

Meme the first:

Comment and I will:

1. Tell you why I friended you.
2. Associate you with something. A fandom, a song, a color, a piece of fruit. SOMETHING.
3. Tell you something I like about you.
4. Tell you a memory I have of you.
5. Ask you a random question.
6. Tell you my favorite userpic of yours.

In return, you must post this in your LJ. Or don't. You know, whatever.

Meme the second aka Fandom Meme aka My Merlin Thoughts, let me show you them )
Ask me to list my top five of anything! Top Five Songs? Top Five Movies? Top Five Comic Books? Top Five Favorite Fictional Characters? Top Five Books? Top Five Music Videos? Top Five Web Sites? Top Five OTP's? Nothing is off limits! Ask for as many lists as you want.

And because it's been a while since we've seen one, I give you the latest Bradley James, Crazy Face;

Via [ profile] gealach_ros, here.
I've been an emoting loser all day and thus a killer headache is born.

RANDOM IDEA: Inspired by a friend who this week asked, "do you ever want to punch yourself in the face for being so emotional?". It's a Fight Club-style LJ community for when you're emo and you know you're being ridiculous. You post your problems anonymously and then all the members rip on you (anon because I can see how no good could come from having names attached) for being such a tool, so it's like...a textual beating. And then you feel better because there's something cathartic about someone telling you off when you know you deserve it. Kind of like that overly truthful friend we've all had at some stage.

Some genius at the kinkmeme left an Oglaf prompt for cumsprites. The apprentice is so very Merlin.

I wish Merlin was 'Melrin' because I always type it that way.

Is 'mouthfilling' a wine term? If not, whoever wrote this brochure I'm looking at is just plain weird.

I was reminded today of just how beautiful a man Colin Morgan is. I mean really )

All my admiration for him is just getting a bit ridiculous now, honestly.

Meme I was tagged for )
How are you all today? Have the Merlin fans on my flist recovered from the exciting events of yesterday? Trailer stuff under here )

Now, if only someone would leak the CC Deathly Hallows footage, I could die a happy woman.

Other stuff:

*Went op shopping on the weekend, turned out to be fruitless though, I only picked up a few cookbooks.

*Family gathering on Sunday went swimmingly, all my cooking turned out fine.

*[ profile] rayslady's postcard finally came! Actually, funny story, we were chatting on AIM today and she asked me if it had arrived yet and just as I was replying no, my Nan walks in with the mail and hands it to me. Am now convinced Julia is hiding outside in the bushes, plotting to kill, dismember and/or rape me. YEAH, I'M ONTO YOUR GAME.

*Arcade Fire's new album - I've given it a few listens and I'm still not sure what to make of it. Has anybody else listened yet? What do you think? It's a lot more poppy than I've ever heard them play. I almost thought I'd got the wrong album when the first few chords of The Suburbs played. I don't know. I don't not like it, it's just not what I'm used to hearing.

*A Very Potter Sequel was fantastic and everything I wanted in a follow up, I love those guys so much. I can't say if I liked it better than AVPM, but Lucius Malfoy is my new favourite thing, I haven't lol'ed that hard in ages.

*Is anyone good at layouts? I want a new one, I hate the width in this one. Alternatively, does anyone know a good layout comm?

HP meme, days 11-15 )
In a ridiculously happy mood tonight. Point form power!

*Bought myself some userpic space today, go see my new ones!

*Posted Bradley/Colin porn yesterday in case you missed it.

*[ profile] rayslady and I should be taken out to a meadow and shot, as we quite honestly have no dignity left after we spent a good hour discussing what Bradley would be like if a) he was ill or b) he was pregnant. I wish I had NOT JUST CLOSED THE CHAT WINDOW LIKE A DICKHEAD THOUGH.

*There's been talk of a love-fest meme for the Merlin fandom going around, someone's doing this right? We need a big, gay orgy of love!

*Big family get together at my house this weekend, I'm very excited! I'm completely in charge of the cooking for the first time, so that should be VERY COOL/STRESSFUL.

*Any Wii games you'd rec? I finished Lego HP last week (frikkin' sweet btw) and I'm gonna trade it for something. But WHAT, is the question.

HP meme, days 5-10 )
If you haven't been updated, the hiatus is off, my family can deal with their own crap without including me. I was gonna stay away for a few days to maintain the appearance of dignity but lol. Come on. This is me.

So, do this:

I know very little about some of the people on my friends list. Some people I know relatively well. But here's a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself. Any old thing at all. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: "Ah, there's so and so...she likes office supplies." I'd love it if every single person who friended me would do this. (Yes, even you people who I know really well.) Then post this in your own journal. In return, ask me anything you'd like to know about me and I'll give you an answer.

HP meme, days 2, 3, & 4 )

This is yesterday's news but I haven't posted about Merlin in what feels like forever, so,

Via here.

I want to kidnap them and force them to perform slashy Merlin scenes forever meet them and be completely uncreepy in any way.
Harry Potter 30 day meme, get excited, dorks. Stolen from [ profile] airekuh.

There will be spoilers, so suck it up.

Day 1: Your favorite book.

Order of the Phoenix.

Probably the most commonly hated in fandom, but I don't know, it really struck a chord with me. Harry's anger, whilst annoying in the way that all teenagers' misplaced anger is, was understandable after the final events of Goblet of Fire and the beginning events of Order of the Phoenix. I could relate to the moods and I could appreciate that Rowling wasn't afraid to show us the flaws in him. He was a hell of a lot funnier in this one too. I don't think I'd ever lol'ed at the books before and then I was only at page eleven before Harry says, so dryly I always imagine, in response to Uncle Vernon's "listening to the news! Again?" -

"Well, it changes every, you see."

Up until this point, I don't think we've ever seen him talk back to his aunt and uncle in such a way. But after four books, you can see he's had enough of their stupidity.

In other respects, I thought the battle in the Ministry between Dumbledore and Voldemort at the end was EPIC, the threesome expanding into six was brilliant (YAY NEVILLE) and I loved how they all showed such initiative going after Sirius by themselves (however foolish a journey it turned out to be). Umbridge was the most vile and delightfully evil character and it's, I don't know, refreshing to read characters like her, Fudge and Percy, who are "bad" but not evil. To have them be a force against the good guys without pigeonholing them into Voldemort's camp.

And I've spoken about this before, but Order of the Phoenix was my first real experience with fandom, in that I got to anticipate and speculate with all the other fans in the months leading up to its release. There's a lot to be said about shared anticipation and how excitement builds enormously when you have people around that are just as worked up as you. The wait was just as big an event as actually getting my hands on the damn thing.

The book is obviously not without its flaws, it could have done with better editing, for one. I remember defending the need for "Hagrid's Tale" to be a whole chapter long because I was sure Grawp would be significant in some way during the final battle and as it turns out, he's not really. It's definitely not the most satisfying plot-wise, like Goblet of Fire, or the most satisfying in terms of answers given (Deathly Hallows, obviously). But it clearly captured my heart because despite being the longest of the series, it's the one I've read the most.

Rest of the days )
Music Meme, last three days )

EDIT: Also, on a politcal note, UM WUT. I didn't even know they could just dump the PM and appoint a new one. Why did no one do this with Howard?
I swear there's more to my life than reposting Pierrefonds pics, but this has honestly become my new favourite Bradley picture ever and thus too good not to repost.

May unicorns bless [ profile] yavannauk ~forever for this pic.

Music Meme, Day 20, 21, 22 )
Music Meme, Day 18 )

In other music news, NEW DIVINE COMEDY! In the first listen through I was all 'meh' but in the second go through I am snapping my fingers, so that's a good sign. Have a listen, track three, Neapolitan Girl.

Other favourites for the week:
Cap'n Ted - Big Tree. I only downloaded the 2009 album the other day, but I've already listened to it more than the newer releases I've collected recently. Highly recommended.
In The Direction Of The Moon - Wolf Parade. The new album isn't as terrible as I was expecting but I do wish they'd head back into the direction of their old sound.
Apple Pie Bed - Lawrence Arabia. A brilliantly fun, 60's sounding pop song.
Firstly, big hiya to my new Merlin friends *touches you all inappropriately*

Reason #42 why Merlin is the gayest show on tv:

A good looking dude uses his clothing to soothe the wound of his injured friend/love interest, where have I seen this before... ...OH, RIGHT )

But, to the point of this entry, I need music-related help everyone )

Music Meme, Day 17 )

Now, bed. It's almost 6am, what, when did that happen?!
