Wee! Exams are over! This means I can have happyfuntimes writing random characters into the mafia!verse. \o/

Also, can someone please come over here and talk to me about how amazing The National's High Violet is? I think it's eaten my heart.

Via [livejournal.com profile] tearful_eye: Lord of the Rings, as written by different authors.

The Hunter S. Thompson is my favourite:
"We were 20 steps from the exit when the giant flaming Balrons first appeared over our heads. These weren't your normal giant flaming Balrons but some sort of interdimensional Maia that would sit and spin in mid air before dissolving before your very eyes and sneaking up behind you. Gandalf had the pipe and I had the ring which, so far, I had been able to resist trading to the local drug lords for another package of white. Gandalf was shouting random Macrohydration spells while simultaneously trying to not trip over his robes and fall face first into the local pools of goo. Legolas took another drink from his flask and, once again, began explaining how elves were different than humans and much, much mellower."

There's Douglas Adams, Ayn Rand, Mark Twain, Hemingway, J.K Rowling, Chuck Palahniuk, and even one in Lawyer-ese:
"Plaintiff would further show on or about the final day of the Third Age, defendants did intentionally cause the destruction of Ring while plaintiff was engaged in defending his business from hostile takeover. In the alternative, plaintiff pleads that the actions of the defendants toward ring amount to recklessness, gross negligence, and negligence."

And, brilliantly, P.G Wodehouse:
"So Gandalf applied himself to the task at hand - and that's a sight to see that makes strong men gasp and the ladies swoon. You could see the blood whizzing through that magnificent brain of his, chock full of all that health food he grazes on with Tom Bombadil. When there's a problem to be solved, just slip a few nuts and berries to old Gandalf and stand back, I say. Frightening, really."

Now, via [livejournal.com profile] speccygeekgrrl, a meme:

I think it's inevitable that as we read each other's journals we create mental pictures of each other. Post this on your own journal to find out who your friends see when they read about your life.

Two Rules:
1. Post a picture.
2. The person must be in the movies or on TV (but doesn't have to be an actor/actress). The person can be specific to a role or character or just the person.


And if you feel like it, ask, and I'll do you back!
