It is (or isn't) National Book Week. The rules: Grab the closest book to you. Go to page 56. Copy the 5th sentence as your status. Don't mention the book. Post these rules as part of your post.

Our first scene consisted of a dance routine as the children follow their father somewhere, like obedient little ducklings.

Good morning, everyone  
I figure this will give me something in between writing on the nano XD

Pick a paragraph (or any passage less than 500 words) from any fanfic I've written, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you'd expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

Icon meme  
The icons that [info]kel_reiley gave me for the meme:

1. ds - rayk - dark and sexy
One of my oldest DS icons. It took little fiddling apart from sharpening and upping the contrast a bit - I was caught by the shadows on Ray's face, laugh- and frown lines alike. As silly as Ray could act at times, how restless he could be, the moments of quiet and stillness appealed so much to me. And he is pretty in his own way *g*

2. josh/nostradamus - convergence
Oh, heh. One of my original ones - cut out of a sketch I did of two original characters. One is a former priest, the other a sort-of-continuously reincarnated demon. I created the world it's set in for the nano back in... 2004, I think it was. It's set a century in the future where Earth has merged with a parallel world and day to day living is mixed with magic and technology alike. A story I intend to do a complete rewrite of and hopefully some day have the nerve to submit to a publisher. There's a lot of eh... male/male or rather male human/male demon sex in there XD

3. dinner at nicci's
*laughs* - this is one [info]nicci_mac made for a few people who've literally survived dinner at her house with all that it entails. Seriously, you can't be a prude and survive, considering some of the topics anyone, including the kids, will bring up. Some of us actually enjoy these dinners - in a sort of masochistic way LOL

4. talk to the hand
I'm not even entirely sure where I took this photo of a chameleon. It's more than possible that it's taken somewhere in the UK, because I tend to come home with 1,000+ pictures XD - This was actually one I was going to delete when it struck me just how funny the angle of it was, as if it was trying to avoid having its picture taken.

5. merlin - princess arthur
Oh, I so need to keep writing in this journal. It was originally inspired by one of my first fandoms, Smallville, where a writer did a journal for Lex Luthor (as a 14-year-old-school girl) which was ridiculously funny XD - I so want to do the same for Arthur - and intend to go back to doing so when I have new glasses so I can focus on writing again ^_^

6. eagle kung foo
Heh, this one, is inspired by one of my LJ friends who has a couple of kittens doing 'kitten kung foo'. I took this shot at Falkirk in the UK back when I went to visit Nicci the first time. They had a falconry event set up and I managed to get a shot of this eagle at a pretty funny angle, looking like it's doing some weird kung foo move.

This is how nicci_mac describes your relationship behind your back
'Things couldn't be any worse at the moment, not only has ximeria's father threatened to kill me if I go anywhere near their house but I've also just received a restrainer order from the police which prevents me from going within 1500m of her.'
nicci_mac's been stealing stuff from your house too.
nicci_mac has a number of ximeria's old school books littered around their bedroom.
They've even started modifying their body for you
nicci_mac has ximeria tattooed right across their chest.
They sent the following message to you in a Valentines
Words cannot express what you mean to me. I want us to be together forever. Do you fancy becoming siamese twins? My mother says she'll pay for the operation. Apparently such a procedure has a 20% success rate. I'd do anything for our love, wouldn't you?

Your Last Call to The Police
"Hi, police? Yeah, I'd like to report a crime. Some mad fuckers just shovelled shit into our mailbox. I think it's this person I know from the internet called nicci_mac. Yeah, real mad son of a bitch. Can't seem to understand that I just don't like 'em."

gimme pain killers that work! Nicci, I need the big pink ones *wines*

The first half of the root canal treatment on monday was okay. Only a mild pain from where the anesthetics were injected. Annoying enough, but nothing compared to the

OMFG PAIN of today.


It comes and goes. But the final treatment? I'd rather go a round with a vampire than go through that again. And yes, I have another one done on june 18th... *cries*

My debit card cries too.

Right, [info]nicci_mac gave me this for the fandom meme:

Comment and I will give you 3 fandoms and then you have to answer these questions.

1. What got you into this fandom in the first place?
2. Do you think that you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?
3. Favourite episodes/books/movies/etc.?
4. Do you participate in this fandom (fan fiction, graphics, discussions)?
5. Do you think that more people should get into this fandom?

I wasn't surprised when I had to italicise most of the titles. A lot of the bolded ones are so due to nostalgia, and the fact that those are movies I'd gladly sit down and watch again.

Your result for The Social Persona Test (What kind of man/woman are you?)...

The Renaissance Faire Wench (QLAF)

Quirky Liberal Alpha Female

The hardest part about being the Renn. Faire Wench is that people often mistake you for a beta female.  This is not so.  You might be quite flirtatious, but you are hardly relient on men.  You like to do things the mainstream would consider weird, (like dress in costume, perhaps?).  Eat, drink, and be merry, but make sure whoever you date respects you and does not take advantage of your laid-back attitude.  (BTW, you are likely the only type who can see That Creepy Guy (NLBM) for who he is, helping him to bring out the Manga Geek (QLBM) inside.  This does not mean you have to date one, however.  You are quite flexible and can enjoy the company of many of the types.)

You are more QUIRKY than NORMAL.

You are more LIBERAL than TRADITIONAL.

You are more DOMINANT than PASSIVE.

When picking a date, consider: The Lord of the Misfits (QLAM), The Fratt Boy (NLAM), The Snowball's Chance in Hell (QTBM), The Manga Geek (QLBM), or That Creepy Guy (NLBM).

Apparently “The Big Read” assumes that the average adult has only read 6 of the top 100 books they've printed.
Wow, really?

Then I guess, me having read 26 of those 100 titles mentioned is pretty good LOL -- and yes, most of them I read in English, not even in Danish *g*

1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Italicize those you intend to read.
3) Underline the books you LOVE.
4) Reprint this list in your own LJ so we can try and track down these people
who've read 6 and force books upon them ;-)

It's probably best I do this BEFORE Nicci and I go on a bender have a quiet night in tonight.

In response to this post, ask me about the first time I did something. It can be anything--the first time I ate Italian food, the first time someone I knew died, the first time I left the country, my first OTP, the first time someone saw me naked. I'll answer in the thread. Then (if you like) put it on your journal and I'll ask you questions.
