Poem for Friday and <a href

Collapse )

Friday Five:
1. What does it say in the signature line of your emails?

I haven't had a .sig in ages but when I last did, it was a line stolen from telesilla which I now have on an icon: "The First Amendment. It's not just a good idea, it's the law."
2. Did you have a senior quote in your high school yearbook? What was it? If you haven't graduated yet, what would you like your quote to be?
I didn't have a quote. I don't think my yearbook had any of that sort of who are you, what do you want to be when you grow up stuff.
3. If you had vanity plates on your car, what would they read? If you already have them, what do they say?
I have Save the Bay plates but no slogan; if I did, it would be "KROYKAH" which is Vulcan for "stop."
4. Have you received any gifts with messages engraved upon them? What did the inscription say?
I have dog tags with Kathryn Janeway's name on them and several baby gifts with messages for the parents and child.
5. What would you like your epitaph to be?
We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded by a sleep.

1. Name a slashy movie that I should see. This does NOT have to be a chartbuster, something you'd like to promote.
Kiss of the Spider Woman. It's not so much slashy as overtly gay, but it's never been out on DVD and I keep discovering that few people more than five years younger than me have seen it, despite William Hurt having won an Oscar for it. Get ahold of it and see it,
2. Name a slashy television show that you think other fen need to know about.
The Dead Zone.
3. Name a fic that particularly appeals to you and that you think other fen should know about.
Every damn word of astolat's Master and Commander fic, especially "Five Things That Never Happened..." Yeah, I know I just pimped that here, but I cannot stress highly enough how good this is. I have printed out perhaps four stories in the past three years, saving the rest to disc, but I made my husband print out this massive undertaking at work because if my CDs melted I could not bear to be without it.
4. Name an author that you really like and would like to promote.
, though I am sure all the Araboro fans reading this know her already; she's just a wonderful writer. Also copperbadge, who keeps pushing my Remus/Sirius buttons even though I keep almost forgetting about HP fandom. There doesn't seem to be a lot of crossover on my Flist among the LOTR, HP and M&C people which is too bad.
5. Name a zine or website that has really good fic in it.
Ah, what the hell, one for old time's sake: The JetC Index. Some good, some bad, some appallingly awful, but I spent many, many happy hours here, once upon a time.

ealgylden pointed out this list of upcoming LOTR action figures. Faramir with slashing action! Super-poseable Aragorn and Boromir! I know what will be happening on my shelves!

And from my lunch date, gblvr -- perkypaduan was also supposed to be my lunch date but she is under the weather, so everyone send her vibes -- I tried four versions of my name and they all wanted me in Gryffindor even though I am always a Ravenclaw:
