Microfic thing: In ten words or less, write a thing for each genre.  Went with Star Wars, of course.


He could never see her face- just the flashing blue blades.


"I am your brother," he said, with a dark smile.


"Bring Your Child To Work Day," Vader read, and growled.


Well, my ship's still shinier, thought Kirk, who remained annoyed.


The twin suns on her hair- Luke alive- death could come.


"Snookums? Babycakes, maybe?" said Anakin, and Padme fell over laughing.


Obi-Wan suddenly blanched.  They'd left Luke on the Death Star.


"Ben lied," said Lukeunit, and Artoo gently nudged his knee.


"You... pirate!"  "You say that like it's a bad thing."

As always, shamelessly stolen from one of the twenty billion or so fic authors whose journals I stalk.

Take twenty pairings, (or characters, because I don't think I HAVE twenty pairings), and twenty Shuffled songs.  Compare.

My maternal grandfather has a habit of collecting things.  All sorts of things- he's got arrowheads, old guns, a ton of Confederate money, gemstones- and a few months ago he got his hands on a couple of boxes of old comic books,70s-80s mostly.  I don't think there's exactly anything valuable in there, but there's a veritable treasure trove of Claremont X Men that I've been reading, as well as some old Green Lantern and the ridiculous old Jimmy Olsen books.  Very fun.

I continue to lament my descent into shipperdom- once again, at a dramatic moment, my thoughts were along the line of "dammit, go away Lilandra, they were about to kiss!"- but it's been fun so far except for the fact that now they're all over my bed.

Also, we watched our DVD of the Star Trek movie last night.  Good times, good times.  I really love Spock.

We went to see Star Trek today;  I reccommend it highly.

The battles were excellent, the special effects were almost uniformly good, the characters were both true to form and fantastic, and I was at the edge of my seat.  (The theater we went to actually has decent seats, too.  They literally rock, always a fun plus.)

Was there a major Star Wars influence?  It had a lot of the same stuff that makes me love SW, sure, but I felt it managed to be itself.  Admittedly, I'm far from a hardcore Trekkie/Trekker/Whatever the fandom currently calls itself, but I do know a bit about and enjoy the shows, particularly the Original Series, and I thought that this captured its attitude really well.

So, yeah.  Pulse pounding, pretty, and featuring shirtless!young!Kirk- overall I'd say this one is a winner.

Tune in next year for Lou's next Semi Annual Theater Visit!
