curuchamion: TARDIS in a sunny field (sunny TARDIS field)
Okay, so I was poking InfiniteViking's back archives (as I do - some of my longtime friends know that I tend to marathon interesting people's journal archives when I'm bored, and scatter comments along my way), and I found a "List 100 awesome female characters" meme.

This leads me to realize that I don't even know if I could come up with 25 or 50 awesome female characters, let alone 100. I pay far too little attention to the ladies - heck, the TARDIS is the only female character in my icons right now! O_O Except for her, my favorite characters from my various fandoms fit quite well under the heading of "my guys".

So. For an experiment: rockin' awesome female characters in no particular order. Good, evil, human, alien, inorganic... let's see how many I can come up with!

Hopefully this will be long )

Well! That was educational! It seems that many things I like actually have quite a high concentration of awesome ladies - I just don't primarily focus on them. Granted, most of them are in pretty minor roles. o_O

(Feel free to suggest female characters I missed in the comments! Admittedly, there are some I left out on purpose, but there are also many many many that I just haven't seen yet or plain forgot about. *g*)
[ profile] loneraven is doing one of those memes where you have to get somebody's attention to participate - this one is a "talk about five fictional characters beginning with a given letter" thing - and since I was lucky enough to actually get a letter from her (this is an Unusual Occurrence in my online life), I am now yattering about five some fictional characters beginning with the letter P!

...I really don't think I can come up with five. Wow.

Peregrin Took )

Mary Poppins )

Portia Blake, Pindar Payton; heck, I'm just going to babble about Gone-Away Lake and Elizabeth Enright in general ) know what? It's past 8 o'clock, and I've got four out of five anyway. (And if I go on too much longer I shall exceed the post length limit.) TL;DR: Pippin was shortchanged in the LOTR movies; Mary Poppins is cooler in the movie than in the books; everybody that likes kidlit ought to read Gone-Away Lake and Return to Gone-Away if they haven't already. Or re-read it. Goodness knows I'm on my umpty-zillionth reread. ;D
I suspect I won't be online much if at all tomorrow or Saturday (it's been a long week and I am pretty thoroughly wiped out), so I'd like to take this work-fleeing LJ break opportunity to wish all my Tolkien-loving friends a happy Cormarë! :D

[ profile] fic_rush peoples - don't know if I'll show up. Maybe for a bit on Sunday. Have fun, all! Save me a glowstick! ;-)

The Internet is occasionally made of awesome.

Apparently somebody out there has built Minas Tirith and the Battle of the Pelennor Fields out of candy.

(Some NSFW language, but not so much that I can't bleep over it. YMMV.)

They've also done the Mines of Moria. The text is totally skippable (take my word for it, I'm looking for the brain bleach now), but the candy work... well, among other things, there is a Twizzler Balrog. A TWIZZLER BALROG.

And also Helm's Deep. (Again, a bit of bad language, but not that much.)
A bit of randomness: cracky fan theories about quantum mechanics are a regular topic of conversation around our house. Today, we came up with this one... "If there are ten spatial dimensions but only one temporal dimension, maybe the spatial dimensions are arranged in sets along the temporal dimension - which might make the sets yesterday, today and tomorrow! A three-dimensional yesterday, a three-dimensional today, and tomorrow is four-dimensional because the future is open-ended!"


Ahem. Anyway. I also have a cross-fandom LOL.
