1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4-7 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 (unless it's too troublesome to reach and is really heavy. Then go back to step 1).

"Will they come after you?" Billy said. "If you go rogue?"

What this renegacy would mean! Dane would be without the church that had made him, an apostate hero taking faith into the heart of darkness, a paladin in hell. A lifetime of obedience, followed by what?

Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line (unless the first line reveals the song title) from the first 30 songs that play, no matter how embarassing. Skip the instrumental-only pieces (non-English too if you want).
Step 3: Strike through the songs when someone guesses both artist and title correctly. (If it's a cover, the original artist is okay, and vice-versa.)
Step 4: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!
Step 5: If you like this game, post your own!

Seen this in a few places. My contribution:

O Captain my Captain! our fearful trip is done,
The ship has weathered every rack, the prize we sought is won,
The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring;
But O heart! heart! heart!
O the bleeding drops of red,
Where on the deck my Captain lies,
Fallen cold and dead.

O Captain! my Captain! rise up and hear the bells;
Rise up--for you the flag is flung for you the bugle trills,
For you bouquets and ribboned wreaths for you the shores a-crowding,
For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning;
Here Captain! dear father!
This arm beneath your head!
It is some dream that on the deck,
You've fallen cold and dead.

My Captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still;
My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will;
The ship is anchored safe and sound, its voyage closed and done;
From fearful trip the victor ship comes in with object won;
Exult O shores, and ring O bells!
But I, with mournful tread,
Walk the deck my Captain lies,
Fallen cold and dead.

1. My username is ______ because ______.

[ profile] trillianastra because I love, adore and pretty much worship the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and Trillian Astra is the name Trillian uses when she's a jetsetting intergalactic reporter.

2. My name is _____ because ______.

Nicole. Because my dad apparently had a thing for French names. (So. Not. Kidding. You should see my sisters' middle names.... mine aren't too bad, actually)

3. My journal is titled ____ because ____.

Scribbles, Thoughts and Miscellany, because it's broad enough to encompass all the things I post/rant/ramble on about. Also, I really like the word Miscellany. (It's one of my top three favourite words. The others are Ephemera and Syzygy.)

4. My friends page is called ____ because ____.

Scribblers, because it went with the journal title.

5. My default userpic is ____ because ____.

The extremely sexy Joseph Fiennes, from FlashForward, a show that is infuriating, addictive, and also... my fill-in show to keep me going on mysterious stuff until Lost gets back.



I have been watching Stargate Universe, which in itself is odd because I've never really been that attached to the Stargate franchise. Sure, I saw a few episodes of SG-1, but I never got into Atlantis... and then SGU came along.

And OK, maybe it was the Robert Carlyle involvement that drew me in (It was, I admit it - I'd watch anything with him in. Unfortunately, down that road lies *shudder* Eragon). But once I was THERE, I found that, actually, there are a whole bunch of other characters I like as well.

quick lowdown...
- I think I have a teeny crush on Lt. Scott. *le sigh*
- OK, so, I really like Chloe. Kinda identify with her a bit, maybe it's because she's my age. IDK.
- After the last ep I saw ("Light", ep 5), I really like Greer. He may even be my replacement Starbuck.
- In fact, the whole damn show looks like it's shaping up to be my replacement for BSG. This extends to my tendency to collect substitute-father-figures from my various fandoms. With BSG it was Bill Adama. This time round, I suspect it's going to be Col. Young.
- Eli's great. I FriendShip him with Chloe a bit.
- I'm also kinda in awe of Dr Rush. A bit. For... obvious reasons, I guess.
- Destiny is a beautiful ship. (well done, SFX guys!)

1. Pick a character, pairing, or fandom you like.
2. Put iTunes or equivalent media player on random.
3. For each song that plays, write something related to the theme you picked inspired by the song. You have only the time frame of the song: no planning beforehand: you start when it starts, and no lingering afterward; once the song is over, you stop writing. (No fair skipping songs either; you have to take what comes by chance!)
4. Do 5 of these, then post.

Fandom: The History Boys
Pairing: Dakin/Scripps
Rating: PG-13 to be safe

Well, musically speaking, that could have been a lot worse... )
