Cussing ahead...

I am, for the most part, relatively hard to piss off permanently. I might get angry for a bit, but it normally goes away, and if you're my close friend, I probably won't get angry to begin with, whatever my rather Feanor like temper might suggest. However, I absolutely hate it when somebody I don't know, who doesn't even bother to introduce themselves, decides to lecture me on things I do happen to know a lot about. Hey, precious little snowflake who is apparently too good to comment on the actual art (not mine), but is good enough to focus in on one commenter and decide to lecture - I'm very aware of the fact that according to Tolkien, Feanor apparently stays in the Halls until the Final Battle. The words "While I'd like to imagine this was after he was released, I know it likely isn't" and "Mean Valar, keeping him in there" should have been a clue that I know that. Also, generally, it's a kind thing to introduce yourself, not just randomly start lecturing people. That's the kind of thing that gets you a reputation as a bitch.

Also, if you'd do a simple thing - you know, like try clicking on the link to my profile, honey, you'd have been able to see just how well I do know Tolkien's works. And maybe, just maybe, it'd be a good idea to realize that people do see his works differently, and that some of us like to write AUs, crack jokes, etc.

Hey look, this is actually being posted before the next day's number for once! (Even if it's only because I'm doing this during commercial and half-time of the Kentucky-Baylor game and what is now the Kansas-UNC game. When it's being played, I'm too busy yelling at the tv.)

Silm Women – passing the Bechdel Test
..I hate this test, at least the far out ones that say that the women can't even be talking about men in a none-relationship way. Because, I mean, I wouldn't consider myself a far out ditzy relationship obsessed girl, and yet 90% of my conversations at some point talk about male characters, male basketball players, male coaches, male politicians...it's a flawed test. But I'm writing it anyways....(...even though I'm not sure which version of the test is meant. If it's just that they can't be talking about men in a relationship, great! There's tons interesting that can be done with that. They can talk about wars, politics, etc...otherwise, there's only boring stuff. Who the hell wants to read Galadriel and Aredhel talk about sewing or something? If the version of the test is the one where they can't talk about men at all - you can't mention any of the Kinslayings. You can't mention the issues with Fingolfin and Feanor's fights. You can't mention Morgoth. Basically, they come off as being more ditzy and self-centered, because they can't mention any of the actual issues.)

This is my soapbox. I hate the urge to yell sexism or whatever just because a girl never talks to another woman without mentioning guys at some point. Especially if the guys can't even be mentioned in a none relationship way. It's so stupid, and in my view, does a lot to actually disguise actual sexist issues.

That controversial topics prompt is going to be such a soapbox rant, because I actually find Tolkien to be far less sexist then most fantasy authors. He's far less then Rowling, Meyer, Lewis, etc. I wouldn't even term him sexist, though I'd call all three of the others that.
ladybrooke: (Default)
Well, this is super late...but it was the first two games of the Elite Eight. I had to watch them....

...this is going to be an epically long fic. Especially since I'm doing it two different ways - one Fingon grows bitter, lives far longer...and the other is that he goes insane

Fic 2:
Crossover 1 – with one of Tolkien’s other writings (e.g. Farmer Giles, Leaf by Niggle); Diners Club - pizza

Fic 6:
This Means War – Saruman vs. Theoden
ladybrooke: (Default)
So...Script Frenzy is about 8 days away. Guess who has no idea what so ever about what they're writing? I need to figure this out, quickly, but I have no time to do that until 9:15 am on Thursday, at the earliest. It's completely possible to come up with an idea the day I start, though with my luck, Fingon would invade that too.

Also, I wasn't planning on doing NaPoWriMo...but the idea for doing 30 days of Celegorm's (and possibly a few other characters) increasingly bad poetry to Aredhel, Luthien, etc won't leave me. Granted, that means that I will be inflicting more poems with awful rhyming like the delightful first Celegorm attempts Poetry one (which has dogs, balrogs, and she fastly jogs - what's not to love/be frightened by?), but on the other hand...it could be fun.

~

Aside from those two that are next month, I think I've gone slightly insane....oh well, what is life for, if not cutting your hours of sleep down to practically nothing, causing your fingers to hurt all the time, and then doing it all over again the next month?

At least this will be slightly easier to do this summer, though the slightly easier part is only because I don't have school. On the other hand, I do have to actually spend time with people...and I keep finding new challenges to do this summer, besides CampNaNo twice.

So yeah....I sort of want to do the 365project, starting this summer.

National Epic Poetry Month would be fun, if I was actually capable of writing epic poetry (or anything other then bad poetry)

Story a Day sounds fun too (and it's not like I'm not already writing a story a day (or when I'm on break, several stories a day. Except they're fanfic, and not original fic...)

And Noveldom. Just because if I want to have any hope of keeping that New Year's Resolution (to read 100 books by the time the year was over), I'm going to have to get my butt in gear and read, read, read over the summer. 10,000 pages in 93 days would be one way of doing that....

And this will be edited as I find more things I want to do....
