Deliberately stolen from [ profile] laylah, who I swear makes up the best memes.

Name a character that I write, and I will tell you one of that character's favorite foods, and why s/he likes it so much.

Memery Two: Electric Boogaloo

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.
6. Tag five people.

So, what we get is...

In pictures of perfect states and less formally, as we shall see in Rabelais, Montaigne, Shakespeare, Swift, and others, the theme of emancipation from present hardships is the author's main motive; but there is at least one other reason to account for the 16C cluster of such works. For the generation after Columbus, knowledge of the New World and its inhabitants began to modify the western mind about its own culture. The explorers' voyages had become a literary form, which the Eutopeans imitate minutely. They describe the ship's going off course, the remote island, the natives' treatment of the foreign crew, touchy at first, then friendly.

--Jacques Barzun, From Dawn to Decadence: 1500 to the Present: 500 Years of Western Cultural Life

So, the site for The Golden Compass is up, and yeah, I did the dæmon meme.

Meme-ry, and random ramblings about His Dark Materials. Spoilers. )

Alas, this is being released by New Line, so no chance of Kingdom Hearts what-the-fuckery. I wanted Kingdom Hearts what-the-fuckery. Such things spawned the following:

How did you first hear of/meet me?

Where and when did you first hear of my name/see my work/'meet' me? With what people/series/groups etc. do you associate me and my writing? This is not a praise or feedback meme, this is just to track the path of my online presence and to see the connections involved, to find out how people link together.

Yeah, lurker/non-mutual-friend types? Why? Why me?

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: Boston

You definitely have a Boston accent, even if you think you don't. Of course, that doesn't mean you are from the Boston area, you may also be from New Hampshire or Maine.

The Midland
The Northeast
The West
The Inland North
North Central
The South

I suppose I'm preparing for my eventual brownstone in Beacon Hill. In my mind. Why I don't have a "Northeast" accent is beyond me. I guess it's my liking of "awnvelope" instead of "ehnvelope", or something.

The first ten people to comment on this post get to request a doodle/sketch/drabble from me on a subject/character of their choosing. Yes, damn it, sketch. I'll bust out the scanner of doom down in the basement and everything.

THE CATCH: In return, the requesters have to post this meme in their journal.

One of those things just to show I'm alive.

1. Comment with any ship from a fandom that you know I like, or at least have some knowledge about.

2. I will ramble for 100 words about aforementioned ship. This may be incoherent gushing or exclamations of disgust, depending on what it is.

3. Put this on your LJ, if you are so inclined.


I am evil. And I love it.

3. a musical artist, song, or album
4. a LiveJournal user not on my friends list
5. what I should have for dinner
6. a website

...and put it in a comment and then put this in your journal.

The end.
