Give me a character's name and I will tell you three reasons why it would be terrible to try to date them, have sex with them, or be in a long-term relationship with them.

For an extra challenge, pick characters you know I'm fond of. Anyone can tell you reasons not to date Cthulhu, after all.

Because I'm home from work today, and procrastinating rather than... doing anything at all.
rowanberries: (Bang bang no more problem!)
khdkhafshkjfk omg.

Heh. Sleep to laptop time ever decreases!

Ohhh, I'm not even really awake. Memetime!

Check my fandoms, my favorite characters, the pairings I like the most, my kinks, my fictional crushes, anything. Now, in a friendly and possibly teasing way, point out the obvious and not so obvious trends or fetishes you see in my tastes. Maybe I'm nuts for all vampire stories, or have a thing for men who smoke, or I'm fond for the tsundere archetype, or I'm into rival slash. Let's point out all of those you've noticed I tend to squee about during our friendship.

Okay, so EVERYONE is doing this.



Might take me a while to go around you guys, but I shall do my best!

1. Comment to this post with "I surrender!" and I'll assign you the basis of some TV show idea. (Science fiction show, medical drama, criminal procedure, etc...)
2. Create a cast of characters, including the actors who'd play them
3. Add in any actor photos, character bios and show synopsis that you want.
4. Post to your own journal.

THE PROMPT (via [ profile] mercuriazs):

An urban fantasy with a detective! Private investigator or working for the city, your call. (Why yes, I am still bitterly disappointed in the DF Syfy show.)

TYPE: Hour long episodes on BBC, thirteen episodes to a season, plus Christmas special.

SYNOPSIS: A bored young Scottish woman who watches too much CSI moves into her family town house in London, and joins a PI agency in search of a little excitement. Unfortunately, within a week she is foisted off on the oldest member of the team, who is a year away from retirement and barely takes anything seriously anymore; suffers a break-in on her first night back; and discovers the house is haunted by the ghost of her long-dead and highly eccentric great-grandmother, Matilda May Harcourt.

Soon, with the grudging help of her skeptical partner, and Matilda May's uncanny genius at problem-solving, Bryony is beginning to learn the ropes and claim a few successes. But a far trickier mystery to solve is one that took place nearly thirty years ago - who killed her great-grandmother and why?

FAN REACTION: Yet another BBC attempt to fill the Doctor Who Saturday night timeslot, it's silly but watchable, and improves loads when the main action moves to the house and out of the Agency - mainly because the secondary characters get more to do.

Ask Me Anything meme! (from [ profile] bookelfe)

I do not actually remember the wording because it's been a while since this one last went around LJ, but basically, if there is anything you are curious to know about me because you are new around here/are old around here but feel like you should already have known it/have never gotten around to asking despite the fact that you know multitudinous other details of my life like what I eat for breakfast every morning, today is a day to ask it. (It does not have to be RL stuff necessarily! Fannish questions are fun too.)

I will not be offended by anything you ask but I fully retain the right to not answer questions, because sometimes I do like being a woman of mystery. Alternately, I may screen answers if for whatever reason I do not feel comfortable sharing them with the-internet-at-large.

ALSO: Will not so much be around tomorrow, because I'm doing two performances then attending cast party in the evening, and I will be dead when I get home.
rowanberries: (Toeses)
Ask a character a question, any question, and they HAVE to answer completely honestly. Have to. It's the meme rule. Even if they'd normally lie, they suddenly have been hit with a truth serum of some kind and must tell the truth. Bwaha.

And that goes for:

Captain Jack Harkness
Havelock Vetinari
Harth Fray
Shelley Winters

Aaaand any of the old ones that you can recall!
rowanberries: (Nico loves her gay best friend!)
Aaand one bit of the meme before last is done!

[ profile] apiphile's Tame, chapter one here on Sendspace, because it was too long to fit on

Anyone who still wants, feel free to leave a comment, and I will get to it... eventually.

I am still working on the other one! I blame... most everyone, really, for that. Especially Sooz. :P
rowanberries: (Me hee!)

I'm in a good mood, and feeling the posting thing, which means I'm like, QUICK ENGAGE WITH PEOPLE NOW, FOOL. Since... you may have noticed, it's been a while. Or not. I've failed for a while. Buuut I'm still about, and have another week before I start work again, and my panto is done (hahahaha what. So much fun.) So! There was a meme going around awhile back that intrigued me, but I had a hideous cold at the time, as I do for about 80% of the year, so I forwent it. Then... lost it. So I'm rephrasing from memory.

Comment with something you would like to hear an audio file of, and I will record it for you. I never did work out voiceposts, but I can record stuff and upload to megaupload or whatever easily enough. I will happily chat randomly, offer random thoughts on a subject, read a thread, verse or poem; or sing for you, assuming I am familiar with it. Let me practise using my diddy microphone for yoooou!

Let's do that! Meanwhile, I will go around tagging things. La!
rowanberries: (Writing)
If you happen to be working on some creative writing project, fanfiction or NaNoWriMo or what have you, post exactly one sentence several lines from each of your current work(s) in progress in your journal. It should probably be your favourite or most intriguing sentence several lines so far, but what you choose is entirely your discretion. Mention the title (and genre) if you like, but don't mention anything else -- this is merely to whet the general appetite for your forthcoming work(s).

Like I have very much anyway... )

I could resist this one's temptation, but where would the fun be in that?

On the theory that we could all use a hearty dose of positive energy and general warm fuzziness while we wait, none too patiently, for better times; that *no* one I know is getting told often enough what a good job they are doing just getting through this crazy, lovely world. Take a second, and mention something you like about me (if such a thing exists) in the comments. Then repost this to your own journal, and have some goodness for yourself.


Work was... cold, mostly, today. :) I love Lush deeply, as you all know, but aaaaaghcold! Still, I cut and wrapped a lot of soap - which sounds dull, but is actually one of my favourite things to do. Not sure why, it's just really satisfying.

Oh yeah, and the knives we use are nearly the size of my forearm. :D
rowanberries: (Helium cat)
Oh, fine. That egg thing. What can I say, I have a weakness for dragons. >_>

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

Save them!

The 'what do you have in your bag?' meme!

The bags I carry vary a lot, but stuff mostly tends to be in one big one that I then decant as needed, so I went for that.

Picture! )

And now for lunch and rehearsal!
rowanberries: (Helium cat)
And I almost resisted this one. *Sigh*

The Love Compliment Meme


Let's see - have been in Cardiff this weekend, chez Bethan, who put up with us all with cheerful good grace, and spent our time drinking, cooking stupendous amounts of nutritionally dubious food (all hail frozen pizza!) watching geeky things, playing games and prancing about just outside Torchwood HQ.

Yes. Really.

I have pictures to prove it.

Fear, Britmuns. :D
rowanberries: (Helium cat)
Give me a character and I'll tell you what I like/love about them.

rowanberries: (Helium cat)
Okay, now this I cannot resist.

"The Big Read reckons that the average adult has only read 6 of the top 100 books they've printed."
1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Italicize those you intend to read.
3) Underline the books you LOVE.
4) Strike out the books you have no intention of ever reading, or were forced to read at school and hated.
5) Reprint this list in your own LJ so we can try and track down these people who've read 6 and force books upon them ;-)

Boooooks )

Thirty-one. Meh. Could have been worse. Still, am surprised there's no Dorian Gray in there. Was there any Wilde at all? *Peers*
rowanberries: (Helium cat)
Meme! I have one.

That personal stuff meme )

Additional! Tomorrow, I'm taking the Scott Jr. to London. If we have a free moment, I'll text peeople, but if you're at a loose end, grab us! We shall be around, and flexible.

P.S. Internet extremely crazy these past few days. May vanish without warning. D:
