Me neither. Stolen from [ profile] sternflammenden:

When you think of me, what is the first thing that pops into your mind related to me in any of the following categories:

The first word you think of when you think of me:
TV Show:
Other LJ or DW user:

(You certainly don't have to come up with one for each of these -- just whatever you have an actual association with!)

OT: If there's anyone on my f-list who wants to participate in the next round of [ profile] got_exchange but hasn't signed up yet ... you should probably do that soon, sign-ups close tomorrow. :)
I've finished my fic for [ profile] asoiaf_exchange (100% sadness, hopelessness and despair), so I'm allowed to do useless stuff like memes again. [ profile] sternflammenden had this five things meme where someone gives you five things they associate with you, and you're supposed to write about them. You're also supposed to tell people who comment what you associate with them, but I hate that kind of thing, so I won't do that. Sorry. Here's useless rambling about the five things [ profile] sternflammenden gave me. May I just say that I love your choice? ^^ Warning: this got long and rambly because I can't shut up once you get me talking.

Languages/linguistics )

Stannis/Davos )

Mark Strong )

Hard, uncompromising male characters )

Beethoven )
Tadaaaa. I feel very self-centred now. Don't we all love to talk about ourselves.

[ profile] sternflammenden is such a bad influence on me. ^^

Name a fictional character I know (mine or someone else's) and I'll give you:

a) a fact about them from my personal canon
b) a reason he/she sucks
c) a reason he/she is amazing
d) a thing that I'd like to see happen to them
e) My ship of choice for that character (or why I don't have one)
f) someone that I can't/am unlikely to ship that character with

Two more fics I wrote for prompts on tumblr. As the last one I posted, these are really just snippets I wrote in the middle of the night, without giving them much thought, let alone editing and reworking them. So don't expect any high quality stuff, just the junk my brain produces when I should sleep. My exchange fic is going to be fairly awesome, though. I think. I hope. I like it so far.

Ficlet number one: I usually hate those "x times someone did that and one time they didn't" fics, but since someone gave me a prompt like that, I was a good girl and wrote it. Have some Stannis angsting about his issues: "three times stannis wondered about renly’s sexuality and one time he knew".

#1: Stannis has issues )

Ficlet number two: the prompt was " Stannis, Renly and Robert in all their dysfunctional glory (hunting trip?)" Bickering, banter, and all three Baratheon brothers being dicks to each other, yay. I like this one a lot better.

#2: the Baratheon bros being dicks to each other )

Sorry for typos etc. As I said, this is not really proof-read or edited or anything. Enjoy anyway, if you like.

General fandom&fanfic meme. As usual, I blame [ profile] sternflammenden.

lots of rambling under the cut )
You know what pisses me off? Blatant hypocrisy in fandom. I mean, I get it, we all have favourite characters and we are a lot more forgiving about their faults, and we have characters we already despise, so of course we're going to be even harder on them when they fuck up. And that's okay, we're all human and biased. But when two characters DO THE EXACT SAME FUCKING THING, and you applaud one of them for being badass and cool and doing the right thing, and hate on the other for doing something so utterly horrible and evil ... it's just dumb. It's okay to hate characters, and it's okay to be protective of characters you love. But that doesn't mean that those you hate can't occasionally do something cool. Nor does loving a character mean that they don't occasionally fuck up and do something wrong. But if character A doing something is totally badass (or at least acceptable), I don't see why character B doing the same thing is horrifying and wroooong.

The most obvious example of this is the kind of people who yell OMFG DOMESTIC ABUSE at Robert slapping Cersei, but cheer loudly and happily when Tyrion slaps Joffrey. Make up your mind: either hitting people is wrong, then you shouldn't be so happy about Tyrion slapping his thirteen-year-old nephew. Or you think that occasionally people are such dumb shits that they deserve a slap, and in that case I don't see why you get all outraged about Robert slapping Cersei. Because the situation was very similar. You don't get to feel all righteous and outraged about the one and applaud the other. I could go on and on with examples (kings executing people for high treason, which is apparently cool when "flawless" Robb does it, but despicable when "evil" Stannis does it; or kinslaying/shrugging it off when someone else kills your relatives), but then I'd just get angry. Angrier. *grumble*

Just, argh. Don't mind me, I'm in a ranting mood.
linndechir: (coffee)
I needed a way to spend the afternoon with procrastination (rather than write my fics for [ profile] got_exchange and [ profile] asoiaf_exchange, or write those kink meme fics I want to write (whaaaat, part of me really wants to write graphic Melisandre/Stannis rape fic), or write some more about young Stannis and bb!Renly, or get started on my huge Stannis appreciation post for [ profile] game_thrones),  so I finally, a hundred years after everyone else, got a tumblr account. I have no fucking clue what to do with it, tbh. Mostly I created the account so I could follow other blogs more easily, but not that I have it, I feel like I should use it. But somehow tumblr feels so ... self-indulging to me. Like you're talking to yourself. And posting to yourself. Even more so than LJ. I just feel silly posting rants there (because I've got LJ for that), or pictures that everyone has already seen anyway.

But, question to you, dear f-list, do you guys have any tumblrs I should follow? Or can you rec any tumblrs that may be relevant to my interests? So my tumblr account can stop looking so sad and lonely and empty? It's like a Stannis account, all alone with no friends. In case anyone cares, my username over there is the same as here. I'm too lazy to come up with something new every time I join a new site.

Btw, I'm sure everyone has seen it by now, but the Game of Thrones comment on the newest Castle episode was just wonderful. I love this show so much.

And I already got started a bit on my appreciation post by looking for quotes, and there's this wonderful passage in ASOS that sounds suspiciously like Tywin having a tiny little fanboy moment about Stannis. It makes me happy.
spoilers for ASOS and AFFC )
I stole this from [info]sternflammenden. It's just hilarious.

First, write down the names of 12 characters from ASOIAF. Then read and answer the questions. You can't look at the questions (or click on the cut) until you write down the 12 characters you're going to use.

The characters )

The questions )
I'm in the right mood for memes right now. And I should really go to bed already. -.-

Give me a character (or ten) from any fandom you know I'm in, and I'll let you know:

* How I FEEEEEL about this character
* All the people I ship romantically with this character
* My non-romantic OTP for this character
* My unpopular opinion about this character
* One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon.
linndechir: (baratheon)
Or not. There's this tumblr with ASOIAF "confessions", pretty much like fandom secrets, mostly rather silly, uninteresting stuff. But I was kind of bored and had a look at it, and one of the first things I saw was this. Probably someone else just had the same idea as me, but since I have never seen anyone else even mention this ship, I can't help but wonder if my constant spamming of Stannis/Sansa as endgame OTP is not showing results and I actually converted someone. If I did, it would really crack me up. If not, I'm apparently not alone in thinking they'd be great together. Either way, it's pretty awesome. Call me self-centred and megalomaniac, but I love it when I manage to convert other people to my crazy rare pairings.

I also just saw an epic movie at the Fantasy Film Festival here in Berlin, called Super. The theme is a bit similar to Kick-Ass - a rather normal, not very smart or strong or rich guy decides to put on a costume and become a superhero. It's more brutal than Kick-Ass, but absolutely hilarious. Ellen Page as batshit crazy side-kick was amazing, and Nathan Fillion had a small role as Holy Avenger, a character on some crazy Jesus TV show. Seriously, this movie is all kinds of awesome. The director was there, and he did a cute little speech before the movie. "This is not a movie for everyone. It's a movie for the oddball, the outcast ... the geek. People like you!" Anyway, watch Super. It's great, if you like that kind of thing.
My last post was in November. Almost three months ago. Wow. I think I just out-lazied myself. I have no excuses other than Supernatural eating my brain, real life being a pain, and new obsessions that do not translate into any sort of writing, but simply more procrastination.

I actually meant to post a picspam about Jeffrey Dean Morgan today. But then I realised I needed more pictures, so I spent a couple of hours looking for more pictures on the internet ... now I have too many pictures. I'm not sure what to do with this. For the moment I'll just leave you with this:

If this doesn't make you want more, I don't recognise my f-list anymore after my long absence. ;)
Because somebody is going to ask: JDM = Comedian in Watchmen, John Winchester in Supernatural, Clay in The Losers, some guy called Denny in Grey's Anatomy (what do I know, do I look like I watch Grey's Anatomy? ... though I will probably end up looking up his episodes, I'm just that sad) ... and a bunch of other stuff. But, really, are Eddie fucking Blake and Papa Winchester not enough to make this guy one of the coolest, hottest actors around? ;)
After that horrible Schalke match today I needed to cheer myself up. So I did the best thing you can do when you're feeling down. I went and spent way too many hours on [info]weepingcock . For those of you who don't know this jewel of LJ, it's a comm where people post the most horrible, hilarious, absurd pieces of porny fanfic writing they've found on the internet. Nothing can cheer you up like porn that's so bad it makes you laugh tears, or giggle uncontrollably for five minutes.

Have a few of the best examples under the cut. )

I should be working on my presentation about multilingualism in England in the Middle Ages. Instead, I am successfully procrastinating. While procrastinating I found two pictures that are so awesome that each of them alone would be worth a whole post.
Pictures under the cut, I don't want anyone bitching at me for spamming their f-list ... )
RL sucks, as usual. So instead, have one of my pointless, crazy, random picspams. Including both funny/ridiculous and hot stuff. But before that, I realised that I forgot to share a  few epic videos with you.

First of all, Jon Lajoie is hilarious. Have a look at this and this and this. It's worth the few minutes of time it'll take you to watch this. If you can't laugh about this guy, I seriously question your sense of humour. ;) It's silly, but the good kind of silly.

Second, although I've already spammed most people with this anyway ... this kid is awesome. But I'm afraid it's only funny if you understand at least some German.  The macro to go with the video:

Did I ever mention that I love it when Marin yells at people twice his size?

Procrastination this way )
linndechir: (coffee)

I thought finding out that Michael Ballack looks like Aldo Raine was bad. But at least that was just because of the clothes and the fake moustache and the sprawl. This look-alike is even weirder. The big bad guy in Resident Evil: Afterlife looks EXACTLY like Tim Wiese. Seriously, they could be twins. Unfortunately, I couldn't find many pics of that guy (played by Shawn Roberts, whoever that is, or should I say Shawn Wiese?) except for the few official promo pics. The similarity is actually even more striking when you see the movie. He and Wiese have the same smirk. And when I say "the same smirk", I mean it. It's not similar, it's identical.

But even without the smirk - they have the same jaw line, the same chin, their noses are rather similar, and they both have a very similar horrible, longish, sleezy, slimy, fake-blond haircut (okay, Wiese doesn't on the picture below, but he does now). But it's really the jaw and chin that get me. The general sleeziness. They both can only be described by that wonderful German word "Proll".

I don't really have good pics to prove my point. As I said, not many pics from Resident Evil out there, and since I'm not exactly a big Wiese fan I didn't want to spend hours looking for a fitting picture of him. But, still, please tell me that I'm not the only one who sees this? This has been driving me crazy throughout the entire movie.

Pics under the cut )

Erm, yes, I'm also back from Hamburg. It was really nice. I will reply to e-mails and stuff tomorrow or so. Postcards have been sent out to everywhere.
linndechir: (exciting)
I'm an idiot. I just managed to delete all my personal messages on LJ. I didn't mean to do it, it was an accident/me being stupid. This is what happens when I spend weeks doing nothing even remotely intelligent. My brain is officialy mush.

As I already mentioned a month ago, I'm going to Hamburg tomorrow for the rest of the week, I'll be back home Sunday evening. Then again, considering how much I've neglected you all, I doubt that anyone will notice my absence. I might have internet there, but I don't know for sure. I finally replied to the dozens of e-mails and comments in my postbox that I failed to reply to in the past two weeks or so. Again, my apologies for the delay. I wasn't really in the mood for big discussions. Still am not, tbh. But everything's replied to now, yay.

I should stop watching football. Apparently every team I support even in the slightest ends up losing horribly. Maybe I should start pretending to support the teams I actually hate? I don't know. Good thing I'm not really superstitious. But this is getting really frustrating. *sigh*
linndechir: (exciting)
... and this makes me laugh madly every time I look at it, so I HAVE to share it with you.

For those of you who don't understand any German, the little text under the picture reads: "Holiday pictures: Tim Wiese and his sexy girlfriend Grit"
Yeah. I'm fairly sure the guy on the left is indeed Tim Wiese, but I have serious doubts that Torsten Frings, despite his long hair and Wiese's possessive arm around him, has decided to change his name to Grit so he could be Wiese's girlfriend ... Call me childish, but I can't stop laughing about this. Especially since "his sexy girlfriend Grit" would sound ridiculous enough even without the mismatched picture.

Attention: the following post is completely pointless and only consists of more or less funny pictures. If you have something useful to do, don't let me distract you.

If not, you might as well have a look. )

Sorry for wasting your time with this. :) I know that I owe a lot of you replies to comments and e-mails, and I will get to it ... hopefully today, but definitely soon. Somehow writing my fic for the [ profile] blackwoodcoward  fic exchange made me even more apathetic than I was before, so I'm pretty much doing nothing except watching Bones. And collecting silly pictures of football players. This is what happens when I lack the energy to work on my bloody paper for university. Apathy is not fun, I tell you. That's why I had to do this cheer-up-post. ;) I don't know about you, but it cheered me up, and that's better than nothing.
Someone posted a few pictures of August Diehl from the Salt premiere in Berlin, over at [ profile] augustdiehl . For those of you who don't watch the community, I just HAD to share this picture ... because August deserves more love. Now I almost want to watch the movie ... except that I really, really don't like Angelina Jolie. Maybe I should just wait a bit and watch August's scene on youtube or so? Apparently he only has a tiny part anyway.

I saw this and thought ... DIETERCHEN!!!!! Well, Dieterchen after Landa stole his pomade and made him smile by giving him a Bösendorfer Grand Imperial.

A few more gratuitous pictures )

*runs off to write possibly part three of La musica delle parole something that might one day become some Landa/Hellstrom-fic that is worth posting*

Oh, right, I need to say one more thing before I go: watch Le concert. Everyone. You know, that French-Russian movie with Mélanie Laurent. Yes, it's slightly cheesy, but it's more than anything else gorgeous, funny, and heart-warming. And I'm usually not into that kind of movie. Not to mention the beautiful music. I think this movie finally made me love violin as much as I ought to. *hunts down a few violin concertos and sonatas*
Hellstrom approves. So does Heydrich.
