The "You Should Write..." Meme!


Come and comment on my thread and tell me what you think I should write next!

(Um, other than the next 14,800 words of my dissertation...)

Icon meme

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee...

My icons are all over at my Inksome account; [livejournal.com profile] multiclassgeek chose:

I did a random Google search for 'hugging' images and found this. It's so cute!! I have lots of hugging icons over at my Inksome account. ETA: it's by azuzephre - original here. Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] wicked_vasquez

Inksome was originally Scribblit and I was a beta-tester. Beta-testers all had numbers, and when we changed our usernames from 'test[number]' to names we'd chosen ourselves, many of us created icons which referenced our previous tester numbers. ETA: Translating tester numbers into periodic table atomic numbers was a popular choice - my number, 57, turned into Lanthanum. (I also did a Wiki search on 57 and found Agent 57 from Danger Mouse! \o/)

This icon is part of a fabulous series by [livejournal.com profile] thefunkyicon. I adore this kind of anthropomorphisation of concepts.

Feminism / civil rights movement / chemistry pun geekery. I'm not a chemist, but all the same this joke is too good not to use :-D ETA: also by [livejournal.com profile] thefunkyicon.

This one's by [livejournal.com profile] noldo_icons. Not only is it another example of anthropomorphisation of concepts, it also reflects some of the key figures/concepts of the Feri tradition.

That's me, then; anyone else want to play?

The "Be Pete Wentz" Poetry Meme

01. Put your music player on shuffle
02. The first lines of the first twenty songs = a poem; the first line of the twenty-first song is the title

If I could stick my pen in my heart

Sam liku palajer nema harve
Well it rains and it pours when you're out on your own
Tosa nogede
indi-stinguish-able from one another

you can compliment me on the style of my hair
I'm wasting time thinkin' 'bout a girl

Our daydream spills from my gold head

How dare you leave, how dare you leave
There was a time long ago

Yo whatup y'all 's Tyga
Guess who just got back today?
Three hours from sundown
At the risk of sounding rude
The sirens are screaming and the fires are howling

Click here to take the "Which Super Villain are you?" quiz...

(I got <50% on all the rest so I cut them.)

Your result for The Elemental Balance Test...


~ 52% Water ~ 48% Wind ~ 56% Earth ~ 48% Fire ~

And I know and I believe

There's a way out to the sea of happiness

It seems your personality is in perfect harmony; your impulses are tempered with thoughtfulness, and your emotions are balanced with a healthy amount of reason.

In order to maintain that harmony, try wearing a Jade, a Chrysoprase or an Agate; all three enhance balance and stability, as does the Snowflake Obsidian that will help remain balanced during times of change.

In detail: You are more balanced than most people. Your Ground Chakra, (associated with the element of fire and representing our basic desires and driving force), your Creative Chakra, (associated with the element of earth and representing our need to preserve and grow), your Heart Chakra, (associated with the element of water and representing our sense of love and compassion), and your Throat Chakra, (associated with the element of wind and represents our desire to learn and communicate), appear to be on an equal footing with each others.

These are the results you will get if you score highly on...

None of the four elements: Balance Wind: Gust Fire: Blaze Water: River Earth: Valley Wind & Fire: Thunder Wind & Water: Clouds Wind & Earth: Canyon Fire & Earth: Lava Fire & Water: Tornado Water & Earth: Trees Wind, Fire & Earth: Storm Wind, Fire & Water: Stars Wind, Water & Earth: Forest Fire, Water & Earth: Avalanche All four elements: Harmony

Characters you would shag, gacked from [livejournal.com profile] snakey. (ETA: I've shifted the ones I've not watched/read to the bottom of the list.)

If you'd shag them put the name in bold.
If you'd shag them after a few drinks put the name in italics.
If you wouldn't shag or don't know who they are, leave as is.
If you wouldn't shag them at gunpoint, cross the name out.

Add one or more character names and/or fandoms of your own. Once the list gets long enough to be unwieldy (use your judgment) start removing one name for every name you add.

If your life was a movie, what would the soundtrack be?

Go to your music player. Hit "random" and write down the title of the song that comes up. Repeat for each section.

Some of these are scarily a propos )

You scored as Luna Lovegood

You are Luna Lovegood. You daydream and often seem to be drifting off into your own world. You have very strong opinions that many agree are not logical. You place a lot of faith in these beliefs. Possibly, you see more than what meets the eye. You are very accepting of others. You may have only a few close friends because you refuse to sacrifice your opinions and true self for social graces.

Draco Malfoy


Neville Longbottom


Albus Dumbledore


Ron Weasley
