15 is the Magic Number

Stealing from the fabulous goddessofbirth

1) Make a list of fifteen characters first, and keep it to yourself for the moment.

2) Ask your flist to post questions in the comments. For example: 'One, nine and fifteen are chosen by a prophecy to save the world from four. Do they succeed?' 'Under what circumstances might five and fourteen fall in love?' 'Which character on the list would you most want on your side in a zombie invasion?' 'Write a drabble in which three and eleven fight crime.' (...possibly not technically a question.)

3) After your flist has asked enough questions, round them up and answer them using the fifteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.

Writer's Block: Vision Test

Do you believe in love at first sight?
I used to have a very firm opinion of 'no' on this but now my opinion is a little more in the grey area than it was.

Lust at first sight is what I believe the majority of the time. And I still believe there's no way you can possibly be in love with someone when you know maybe one thing about them. Love is complex and to truly be in love with someone you need to know them, otherwise you don't really qualify for the statement.

But then this quote comes along that struck something in me. It said that we all fall a little bit in love with everyone we meet. Even if it's just for a second, a week, a year. While I don't think that necessarily applies to everyone we meet because there are some people that do an amazing job of pissing me off at first glance but I think there's a little truth to this as well. The people we let in our lives bring us happiness in one form or another and there's some thing, maybe even just one thing, about them that we're just a little in love with. But it's like we're all so afraid of the statement anymore that we'd rather all think we're aloof and beyond it so that we can't be hurt by them later on. Like that actually works anyway.

So I'm trying to change my attitude a little bit. To let myself enjoy the people that pass through my life more. To be a little in love with them. Even if it's just for a minute. Because contrary to what I've led myself to believe, it's not a bad thing to let other people know you think they're awesome. And, yeah, maybe I'll get hurt more but I also think I'll get a lot more happiness out of it. And that's really all I can ask for.

Doooooooo It!!!!!

Kind of want to see who is actively reading my posts,so, if you read this, leave me a one-word comment about your day that starts with the third letter of your LJ USERNAME. Only one word please, then repost so i can leave a word for you.


Not ALL the things but I did write some things which is a surprising and vast improvement on what my muse usually gives me.

Stolen from the lovely ultra_fic

Make a list of all the characters in your icons. (Although you may have more than one icon of a single character, they only go on the list once.) Alphabetize it. Take the first two people on the list; that's your first pairing. Second two people; second pairing. Etc.
