alee_grrl: A kitty peeking out from between a stack of books and a cup of coffee. (Default)
I know I've been missing in action lately. Mostly been just recovering from the last few years and low on words and spoons. Will hopefully start feeling up to posting more frequently again soon. In the meantime, I wanted to share this fun meme that I discovered via the lovely [personal profile] sulien.

There is a quiz that will tell you what your D&D character would be, complete with stats and alignment. I wasn't terribly surprised by the results. Although I did think I would be more neutral good than chaotic good, but then I remembered that my patron god is a trickster god who governs travelers and misfits and my patron goddess is one governing death and transition. So chaos is kind of a large part of my life. I was completely unsurprised by the classes I got. Not only were these two of the classes I always played when I did game, but they also fit my nature. I'm very much a back to earth, practical, environmentalist pagan which is modern day Druid in a nutshell. And with as arcane and incomprehensible as the legal system is, lawyers may as well be wizards. Not to mention that wordsmithing is a magic of its own.

I Am A: Chaotic Good Human Druid/Wizard (3rd/2nd Level)

Ability Scores:







Chaotic Good A chaotic good character acts as his conscience directs him with little regard for what others expect of him. He makes his own way, but he's kind and benevolent. He believes in goodness and right but has little use for laws and regulations. He hates it when people try to intimidate others and tell them what to do. He follows his own moral compass, which, although good, may not agree with that of society. Chaotic good is the best alignment you can be because it combines a good heart with a free spirit. However, chaotic good can be a dangerous alignment when it disrupts the order of society and punishes those who do well for themselves.

Humans are the most adaptable of the common races. Short generations and a penchant for migration and conquest have made them physically diverse as well. Humans are often unorthodox in their dress, sporting unusual hairstyles, fanciful clothes, tattoos, and the like.

Primary Class:
Druids gain power not by ruling nature but by being at one with it. They hate the unnatural, including aberrations or undead, and destroy them where possible. Druids receive divine spells from nature, not the gods, and can gain an array of powers as they gain experience, including the ability to take the shapes of animals. The weapons and armor of a druid are restricted by their traditional oaths, not simply training. A druid's Wisdom score should be high, as this determines the maximum spell level that they can cast.

Secondary Class:
Wizards are arcane spellcasters who depend on intensive study to create their magic. To wizards, magic is not a talent but a difficult, rewarding art. When they are prepared for battle, wizards can use their spells to devastating effect. When caught by surprise, they are vulnerable. The wizard's strength is her spells, everything else is secondary. She learns new spells as she experiments and grows in experience, and she can also learn them from other wizards. In addition, over time a wizard learns to manipulate her spells so they go farther, work better, or are improved in some other way. A wizard can call a familiar- a small, magical, animal companion that serves her. With a high Intelligence, wizards are capable of casting very high levels of spells.

Several of my friend's/circle are doing the Snowflake Challenge this year. The responses to this daily challenge, particularly to the Day 5 challenge, specifically [personal profile] sperrywink's,response got me thinking about my own fannish origin story. So I decided that even if I did none of the other day's of the challenge I would like to do this one. Challenge and response placed under a cut for length )

[personal profile] sulien gave me the idea to broaden the 10 Crucial Movie post.

So here are additional lists that will help you get to know me a little better. It's really hard to limit the lists to 10, btw. These are a mix of favorites and things that had a great impact on me. Generally I love things because they impacted me greatly, but some things are one offs in a way. For example, the movie "Like Water For Chocolate" is beautiful and well done, and it had a huge impact on me because it affirmed much of my own experience. It is also a movie I would never watch a second time precisely because it hit far too close to home.

Bonus--New t.v. series that I'm actually watching and loving
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (finally saw the finale...<3...summer is going to be too long)
Sleepy Hollow (is it time for season 2 yet?)

Everyone should post their ten most CRUCIAL CRUCIAL CRUCIAL-ASS movies, like the movies that explain everything about yourselves in your current incarnations (not necessarily your ten favorite movies but the ten movies that you, as a person existing currently, feel would help people get to know you) (they can change later on obviously).

This is a challenge list, because my instinct is to list my favorite movies or ones that I've watched a million times. But after thinking about it some more I realized that there some movies that I've only seen once but had a huge impact on me or reflect some aspect of my life. Of course that said, most of these are also favorites and movies I've watched numerous times. :)

Anyway Ten Crucial Movies for Understanding the Manda:

Sliding Doors
Like Water for Chocolate
Billy Elliot
The Last Unicorn
The Incredibly True Story of Two Girls in Love
Spirited Away
Bagdad Cafe
Monty Python and the Holy Grail

[personal profile] jjhunter is hosting a words and deeds love meme and it is a great way to share some words of love and support across the internet. Please do read the guidelines and be mindful that as [personal profile] jjhunter says in this post:

The other gift I would ask of everyone is understanding that love memes are not unambiguously happy and positive things for everyone at all times, just as many things associated with love and relationships can be complicated. (Does this surprise you? Check out the resource roundup post: Love, Pride, and Ambiguity - Recommended Readings).

Anyway I encourage folks to check the meme out. It can be a powerful and wonderful thing. If you need a little love, or know someone who does, pass it on.

Words and Deeds Love Meme 4: Jan. 18th - Feb. 2nd; Hosted by J.J. Hunter at Dreamwidth

So a meme is going around facebook where people post a certain number of things about themselves that others may or may not have known, and if you like the post then you get assigned a number of things to post about yourself. I ended up doing two lists of things for a total of twelve tidbits about myself. It was kind of fun, so I thought I would post the twelve things here. These are in no particular order.

1. I legally changed my last and middle names in 2004.
2. I have late stage Lyme disease.
3. I can talk a lot.
4. Heights, spiders, and ticks all give me the creeps.
5. I tend to understate things.
6. I was terrified of the Halloween isle til sometime in my late teens.
7. I was in show choir my senior year of high school. It was a blast.
8. I write poetry, which you know if you read this blog. :D
9. I know the words to a ridiculous number of Disney songs and do a damn good rendition of "Everybody Wants To Be a Cat."
10. I had a pet rock as a child. It had smaller rocks and googly eyes glued to it and was a gift from my father's friend, Blues.
11. For many years I wanted to be an astronaut.
12. I had some mad skills on old fashioned quad skates, and look forward to trying to regain those skills.

Bonus tidbit: According to this quiz over at Abebooks, the literary character I am most like is Herminone Granger. This is very appropriate and not at all surprising.

[personal profile] jjhunter is hosting a love meme this weekend. If you or someone you know could use some love, nominate them! Anonymous nominations and comments are accepted (though screened at first). It's a great way to brighten someone's day (or have your day brightened a little). [personal profile] jjhunter will be unscreening comments until Sunday, September 16th, 2:00 PM EST. Comments made after that will be left unscreened. I encourage you all to go and share a little love. :)

So ages ago, [personal profile] lilmoka posted this meme: Comment on this post with "I love libraries" and I’ll give you seven things I want you to talk about. They may make sense or they may be totally random. Then post that list to your journal with your commentary. Other people can get lists from you and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.

I responded and got my seven topics back, but somehow never managed to get around to actually answering them. Here they are at long last. Sorry it took me so long to respond. Warning--I can be a bit long winded when it comes to topics I'm passionate about. :D )

Since 100 Things I Love is a rather vague and broad topic, I decided to break it up into mini categories to make choosing individual post topics easier. I thought that perhaps folks might be interested in how the categories broke down. Things were chosen for each category in no particular order. I'll be cycling through the categories as I go. The numbers don't all break down evenly in fives or tens, but I get to the proper total of 100, which was all I was worried about. :D

Category I: Miscellaneous things (people, organizations, activities, etc) (The George Takei post was from this category) (16 posts overall)

Category II: Video Games/Games (9 posts overall)

Category III: Authors/Books/Series (15 posts overall)

Category IV: Graphic Novels/Webcomics (15 posts overall)

Category V: Movies (15 posts overall)

Category VI: Music (10 posts overall)

Category VII: Artists (visual) (10 posts overall)

Category VIII: TV Shows (10 posts overall)

It's a good day for a Love meme!

[personal profile] petra has started a love meme (and what a fabulous idea it is). I decided to be a bit shameless and post a self-nominated thread. You can nominate others though, so if you know someone who could use some love, nominate them!

Also don't forget the weekly Pride Thread. Start the week off right by sharing with others what you are proud of accomplishing (and don't worry, some days just getting out of bed is a huge accomplishment--so share that if you want).

Thanks to [personal profile] jjhunter for the links.

[personal profile] jjhunter posted a great little challenge/meme. Answer the question "how are you?" in haiku form. I decided to go with the answer as it would be right this moment. I thought I would share the results on my own blog as well, though mine ended up being a haikai instead of a haiku.

Content with many
things done but now gravity
weighs me down; throat aches.

Crosses fingers, may pollen
be the culprit not virus

or bacteria.
Too many things left to do;
too much to enjoy.

Early rest and fluids with
antihistamines may aid

with hope. A fresh day
will raise me up and free my
throat for singing joy.

Fun meme

Your result for The Golden Compass Daemon Test...

Multi-Faceted Soul

In a way, you are a truly balanced person. You have a good sense of self, but you have periods of worry and self doubt. You don't like to be alone a lot, but you don't like being constantly surrounded, either. You can be shy in some situations and bold in others. You can tell people how you feel, but you don't wear your heart on your sleeve. You aren't "TOO" anything: You aren't too shy, you aren't too aggressive, you aren't too extroverted, you aren't too introverted. However at any one time you can be any combination of these things.

You tend to adapt yourself to match the situations in which you find yourself. You may be quiet and sensitive with some people, or joking and loud with others. These are all facets of your personality. People tend to perceive you as they want to perceive you. They may even tend to idealize you a bit. Then, when you do something that doesn't fit their concept of who you are (like have an outburst of anger, or a fit of shyness, or make an insensitive joke)they can be shocked and surprised. Does anyone know the real you?

Your daemon would represent your multi-faceted and ever-changing personality, as well as people's tendency to idealize you. He or she would get angry when you did not, be calm and poised when you felt ruffled and anxious, and always be the voice of emotion and reason in your ear.

Suggested forms:
Swan, Elephant, Koala, Panda, Chameleon, Wolf.
