Alright, since it's not like I have any homework due tomorrow or anything, I may as well continue the procrastination with this lovely 30 Days meme that's been going around, but stolen more specifically from [livejournal.com profile] vimtastic. Joy!

Day 01 → Your favourite song
Days 2-30 )

It is really difficult to pick a favorite song, but for the past many months it's been "Endless Night" from The Lion King Original Broadway Cast soundtrack. I discovered the musical last summer, and I fell in love with this song. I had already loved the score maybe more than the movie's lyrical songs already, so when this part of the score was made into a song, I was absolutely floored. Jason Raize had such a beautifully powerful voice, and the emotion in it is so compelling. It's so tragic that he wasn't around much longer - I feel like he had so much more to give to the world. "Shadowland" is also a very good piece of score turned song in the musical, but "Endless Night" I have listened to on repeat because I love listening to it, as well as in a therapeutic manner to calm down when I've been nervous or anxious. So that's my speech on this song. Just absolutely beautiful. Have a listen (plus bonus "He Lives In You")!

Bottom line: I am SO excited to see "The Lion King" next month. SO. EXCITED.

Also, a random thought: Today I had such a bad case of "slippy sock" from that Ted/Victoria fic by [livejournal.com profile] dipenates Anyway, it made me think of that fic. Good times. :)

Hey y'all - I just wanted to remind you that the auction over at [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti is open until Noon EST on January 20th, so about 14 hours from now. My offer is here, and you can check out the comm for other fic, art, whatever if there's something else you'd like to bid on to help out. If you win an auction, then whatever you bid you would donate to one of a long list of charities dedicated to helping the relief effort in Haiti. You don't have to bid on my offer, but if you can help out at all, that would be amazing. On a personal note, I found out that three of my friends in the gospel choir I sing in don't know where their family members in Haiti are, in addition to my classmate whose mother is trapped under a building. Please try to help out the relief efforts if you can.

Thanks, everyone.

Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] mekosuchinae, for alerting me to this so I can spread the love to all of you!

On the off chance you hadn't heard, [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti is a fandom auction to raise money to help with the recovery efforts in Haiti. Fans go and offer to create fic, art, icons, graphics, crafts, etc., and other fans bid on offers, with the winning bidder receiving the item in question after donating their bid in its entirety to a charity. A win-win!

My offer is here. I'm offering 10 drabbles between 100-500 words for one of the following fandoms (the fandom to be selected by the winning bidder, obvs.): HIMYM, TBBT, DCAU/whatever involves Lois & Clark, and The Princess and the Frog (if you're interested in me trying other fandoms, you can certainly ask). Additional info re: pairings, what I won't write, etc., can be found there.

I know many of y'all are both talented and socially conscious, so I hope you join in on this, whether by bidding and/or contributing items/fic!

The starting bid for my offer is $5! If you're interested. Again, my thread is here.

Dear F-list,

We show each other love all the time, and I think it would be just wonderful to pull that all together into one big love fest - a little part of this is a reposted comment from [livejournal.com profile] idioticonion's LJ which inspired this amazingness. We can combat negativity with love, and I'm happy to be the first one to do this.

Guidelines:
-Give some love to everyone on your f-list. I challenge you all to be I-love-you-sluts, and to be champions at it.
-We are all here for some aspect of fandom, but I know I stayed because of the people, not the information/fic/art/vids. Let's keep that in mind.
-Because of that, try to limit your comments on the person's individual talent: Make <1% of this about the fic/art/vids/etc (even though there are MASSIVE amounts of talent in the people I'm going to talk about), and instead remark on who they are as a person, how they make you feel, what you associate them with, how amazing they people are, how much love they bring to the community, and how much love we have for the community because of that. "Inside jokes" are okay as long as they convey that love, but try to keep your comments accessible to everyone.
-Make sure this is a post your whole f-list can read. Do not hide it under a cut! Make sure that love is there for all to see!
-Spread the love!!

[livejournal.com profile] brolove, Happy Birthday! I hope you have an amazing one, and I look forward to getting to know you better.
[livejournal.com profile] da_phoenix13, you are my fellow RA of awesometown and my name twin. That pretty much says it all, but I also just want to say how much I appreciate being able to share that as well as our many other common interests. I hope we can watch HIMYM "together" again some time!
[livejournal.com profile] darlingchaos, you are made of love - I have been so incredibly lucky to have gotten to know you and to talk with you about nonsense or things that are real. You never fail to bring a smile to my face, and I am always happy when you talk to me!
[livejournal.com profile] faith5by5_1013, we have a lot in common, and we L/P shippers gotta stick together ;) From the little time we've known each other, I can tell that you are a very caring and conscientious person.
[livejournal.com profile] girlthethird, I knew I had to be friends with you after I saw that cracky RP thing you did with roland, but I didn't realize then how much we'd be able to share. Thanks for being my fellow feminist, and I have faith that we can make the world a more equal place. That's a pretty awesome thing to be a part of.
[livejournal.com profile] helenkiaya, in your words, "we are young and fabulous." I think this definitely applies here. I love that you are one of the few people on my f-list that is into L&C, I adore your J/P gifs at the end of each entry, and I think Neville is really cute!
[livejournal.com profile] hellolamppost17, I love how much we have in common, and I love you for introducing me to A Very Potter Musical. You can always make me laugh, and I think we need to create the ToaK fandom, because I think we can make it happen. You, me, and mezz, baby. The rest will follow :)
[livejournal.com profile] idioticonion, you were my first friend in this fandom, and you encouraged me when I wrote my first fic in a very long time. I will always love and appreciate you for that. You care very deeply about the fandom, and more importantly the people in it.
[livejournal.com profile] jamie55, you are my super!Canadian friend! You were my first ever beta, you always have really great insights, and I'm glad that we're friends.
[livejournal.com profile] lilybean621, we've only become friends just recently, but I think that what you have to say is always really well thought out and heartfelt. I'm really grateful for our conversations, and it is nice to talk about something we're passionate about and even disagree sometimes and for us to still respect and appreciate each other, so thank you for that!
[livejournal.com profile] michygeary, your dedication to Castle and its fandom is inspiring. I'm impressed by the time and effort you put into the community, and I hope you get back as much love as you put in.
[livejournal.com profile] missymeggins, we have a bunch in common, and we've only just become friends, so welcome to my love fest. I hope we get to talk more and get to learn more about each other.
[livejournal.com profile] morgieporgie, my TWW ship twin! You are also from my area, and that is always something that fascinates me. I know we haven't been friends for very long, but I hope to connect with you more often as time goes by.
[livejournal.com profile] otempora42, In the brief time we've been friends, I have known you to be such a lovely individual who isn't afraid to take risks. I was bowled over by how welcoming you were to me and how willing you were to brave that crazy terrain that is ghetto speak :)
[livejournal.com profile] ravenna_t, we both love Leslie Howard. I look forward to finding out what else we have in common!
[livejournal.com profile] roland44, babe, you rule so hard. You were so incredibly supportive of me when I first started posting drabbles, I love that you brought back the Ted love in fandom, and I think you're amazing for all the love you give.
[livejournal.com profile] secondmezzanine, you pulled me out of my shell with the RP, I've had so many amazing conversations with you and found so many things in common with you, and you a wonderful support to have while I work on curbing my spoiler addiction. I've been spoiler-free for a couple of weeks, so thanks for that! There are so many other wonderful things I could say about you, but honestly I'd be talking into the next decade, so... know that I love you a whole darn lot.
[livejournal.com profile] snogged, you are seriously such a sweetheart, and I've been lucky to get to know you over the past couple of months. You have been a joy to RP with, and it's nice to know about your experiences with grad school in a similar field to mine. I think you'll be amazing, and your clients will be lucky to have you.
[livejournal.com profile] the_spin, you are so cool. I love hearing about your goings-on, and I'm happy that we've bonded over our shared home state.
[livejournal.com profile] vimtastic, you created Lovejournal. You are so sweet! I love your typos, I love talking to you, and I love YOU.

All of you: I am so incredibly glad to have you in my life, and I just want you to know that you are loved. I have love for a lot of other people in the fandom, but you are the ones on my f-list. I want that to grow and my love to grow with it. I hope you'll spread this around, as I know I'm very lucky to have such a loving and welcoming community here.

Love,
Magpie

Lovejournal. It is a thing.

For those on my f-list... you probably have ten other ways to access this, but what the heck, I'm still up and the delirium is setting in.

Since I've been posting photos anyway, I figured I'd do this too while I'm at it. This one I promise is interesting rather than shallow.

WARNING: Inexplicable, out of left field, kind of shallow post! (You guys know I don't normally think/talk about these things, but hopefully you guys won't judge too much)

I know I talked to someone about this last season, but I can't remember who? Anyway, at the time, my point was, Robin/Cobie was looking rough. And mostly because she got way too skinny, but last season because whoever was taking care of her hair wasn't doing their job. So imagine how happy I was to see her looking much healthier post-baby :)

Pictorial evidence that she's gotten back to her lovely season 1 looks:

clicky... but don't if you haven't seen 5.01 Definitions )
