the black jewels trilogy - recent rereading and general vagaries

Originally, this was goign to be a list of things that annoyed me, but I erased that because I suddenly realized that what I really wanted to do was to randomly wander through my most recent re-reading of The Black Jewels Trilogy by Anne Bishop.

To preface: this is probably my favorite fantasy series ever. I mean, the flaws are there, and I can cheerfully name them off, but the truth is, I don't really care. The sheer--I don't have the right word? Audacity? Utter insanity?--glee. This writer who said, hmm. So I can do anything, right? Awesome. Let me start with this list of totally random stuff and see what happens.

So below. Points of random pondering, since I finally read the Dreams Made Flesh in June and have re-read them all to the point that I no longer have a copy of Heir to the Darkness. I mean, I do? And it is in pieces gently cradled on my bookshelf. I have read it that many times.

And I rambled long enough. *blows out breath*

Still my favorite books. *happy*

ETA: Tangled Webs comes out in March 2008! Available for pre-order from Amazon! AND THERE IS NO FREAKING TEASER ON WHAT IT IS ABOUT. I AM GOING TO HAVE A BREAKDOWN.

Er. Carry on.

Small Meme Repository

It has occurred to me that fandom lacks a good Meme Repository.

By that, I mean, a place which stores all our meme ideas. The Unpopular Fannish Opinion! The Apology! The--other ones. Favorite fic! Etc!

So I tagged--some of mine to meme. And made a list. Because I'm feeling distinctly anal. Now: add please? And link to an example.

Caveat: The Love Meme and Hate Meme aren't individual entry but group work. I'm thinking the ones we do in our own ljs.

Caveat 2: Dates and genealogy provided are specific to me, as in when I did them, which was usually within a week of it making the rounds. If you have info on origin, variations, etc, feel free to correct me.


The Small But Eventually Will Be Larger Meme Record
(or, what to do when you're bored and really don't want to work on fic)

Huh. I know there are more, but yeah. Will search more later.
