I saw the "71 things learned from dr. who" one, and I just had to do one for tolkien. Some of these even made me laugh. Hopefully they make sense, and hopefully you enjoy.
EDIT: Vote for your favorite one!!!!! i messages. The top ten will be put in bold!
Edit again: Okay okay, I've gotten about three comments now on the "Pronounce Serindė like Perindė" about how it should be pronounced "Therindė" because it was a thorn letter instead of a P, This deviation was submitted a long time ago and now I know from reading PoME. Please do not comment again on it.
I hope you liked this first part! ^^ Go ahead and don't be afraid to tell me what you thought. Also, I suspect maybe some people will read both Hikaru's and Kaoru's paths... if so can you tell the differences in nature? I hope I write them well, they may be twins but they both handle things differently!
Any way, hope you enjoyed! ^^ Let me know if you would like the next chapter! ^^
A totally (somewhat plotless) Fluff-let done for an art trade with for her drawing of Achille, which is SO AWESOME by the way. Check out her gallery! She's pretty darn good!
I was also shamelessly testing another plot-bunny of mine- George Sand writing a novel based on Chopin and Liszt's relationship. It sounds like a good idea, but I don't really know how I would possibly go about it without screwing it up. I
haven't read any of George Sand's novels, sadly they are all in French.
However, I have read Nelida by Marie d'Agoult (aka Daniel Stern), which was a very good read, though it was obvious which character Liszt was portrayed as, and which character (the beautiful heroine) Marie inserted herself as. It was like a really bad revenge plot.
But yes! If you like short-fluff-drabble-stories, then this is for you! (I didn't like it, but if you read my Artist Comments, you notice that I don't like any of the stuff I write. It grows on me after a couple of re-reads, I must say.)
Pianistic Fingers was the best Chopin X Liszt thing I've written. And Medianoche, there's Paganini, diverting the romance for a long time. I might have to postpone my upload, depending on how much homework my Geometry teacher swamps me with.
Dedications: ~Miyuko-101 for her awesome art trade with me! Hope to do it again sometime!
Here we got the poem that was composed for Aragorn in Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings".
I thought it had to go together with a picture of something rising, just as Aragorn rises from a ranger to a king, so I decided to take this wallpaper of the rising moon in the wilderness. It actually has been in my "Active Desktop" folder for ages and I nearly had forgotten about it... so I don't know who created it, it was a free download somewhere sometime.
The moon is a very strong symbol for me. It's mystic, a bit romantic, unreachable and yet very close, strong, but mild - and these are characteristics that fit my image of Aragorn quite well.
Besides, the moon and the evening star (Arwen, of course ) go together much better than the evening star and the sun, don't they? *gg*
