I never really addressed this here before, but since this is a personal journal and a good part my friends list is from fannish places I'll just clarify that all the personal posts are open for comments from anyone. Doesn't matter if we don't know each other in person or know each other that well. Of course no one's obligated to comment, but just in case folks were wondering about my stance on that. I always like to hear from people :)

And today's 30 day meme prompt is fandom-related anyway!

30 Day Meme
Day 14 → A fanfic

One I found years ago that's stuck with me because it's a magnificently hilarious, cracked-out mess. First Encounter, the story of the Hogwarts Castle and the Hogwarts giant squid and how they find love~ Or at least find tentacle sex. And um, I guess it's rated R between a building and a squid, so be aware of that if that's not to your tastes. And it's gay sex, because apparently both Hogwarts and the squid are male. Who knew. I came across it here at [ profile] pottersues.

To keep up the theme, new Deathly Hallows trailer!
Dead Dumbledore! Bill and Fleur's wedding! Dobby ;_; OMG Ron and Harry yelling at each other. I love you Ron even when you're being a jerk. I love the last shot, with the lightning bolt going into the logo and the theme music. Can't wait!

And you know how with TV shows people will say "Haha, X and Y should have their own show together!". Apparently the Lost creators were reading all the message boards with that sentiment, because Locke and Ben are getting their own show. Okay, it's not really the same characters from Lost (they're ex-government agents in this one), but the same actors. The two best actors from the show, and the ones a lot of people were saying they wanted to see more of together. Props to J.J. Abrams for giving the people what they want!

A meme, in which I talk about myself. Questions courtesy of [ profile] sandoz_iscariot.

1. What's the origin of your username?

It's one I came up with when I was 14 or 15, a few years before I got a Livejournal, and used here and on the internet. I think my criteria when picking it was just animal name + girl and tortoisegirl happened to be available. Creative, I know. I don't actually have any connection to or particular love for tortoises.

2. Your favorite aspect of fandom?

Talking to people. This is the first time I've really gotten involved in a fandom and finding so many great people I can talk to about something I love so much was a bit unexpected, but something I really enjoy.

3. You look away from the computer. What's the first thing you see?

Ahaha, my gold teacup I dug out of a box last week. I got it at a thrift store a few years ago and it makes me feel like such a pimp when I use it.


4. Desert island album?

Hmm, I've never considered this before. I guess it's my dirty little secret that I don't listen to music a lot. It's pretty much only when I'm at my computer and not doing anything that involves too much concentration. I'd probably be fine without any music on that deserted island, but off the top of my head these are songs that I keep coming back to and wouldn't mind having around.

XTC- We're All Light
They Might Be Giants- Birdhouse in Your Soul
Audioslave- Doesn't Remind Me
Donovon- Happiness Runs (yeah it's a kid's song, shut up :P)
Pearl Jam- Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town
The Beatles (and/or the Pearl Jam cover)- You've Got to Hide Your Love Away
The New Pornographers- Adventures in Solitude
Gorillaz- Feel Good Inc.
Red Hot Chili Peppers- Dosed
Red Hot Chili Peppers- Pretty Little Ditty
The Roots- The Seed
Flogging Molly- Death Valley Queen
Bad Religion- Stranger Than Fiction

And if I were to fill it out more I'd comb through my early 90's music for more material.

5. What's the meaning of life?

Of human life on Earth as a whole, I don't think there is any meaning to our existence. On an individual basis, I don't know if there's any meaning there either. But since I do exist I guess putting meaning to my life would mean living as happily as possible while not impeding anyone else's happiness and helping people when I can. God I suck at philosophy.

Snowed in all day yesterday and today, so instead of being useful I decided to make cupcakes. I had a ton of leftover icing from making my mom's birthday cake last week and got a little carried away with the decorating.




Lisa recognized the Watchmen smiley, but no one got the 35 minutes ago one, and gave me funny looks when I tried to explain it.  AND I STILL HAVE SO MUCH FUCKING ICING so I'll likely end up making more just to use it up.
