sigh

A teacher-type person just came by...

Saw my journal layout, and asked me what I thought of the new guy they cast as Dumbledore in place of Richard Harris.

... Okay, so maybe I feel guilty, but I'm more concerned with our darling David Thewlis playing Remus. *prayer* I can actually halfway picture it though, so I'm trying to look on the bright side.

Shoulda been Jeremy, though.

On the other hand, I think Jeremy is actually taller than Alan Rickman. Which would have been slightly weird, as I've always pictured Remus as being... um... shorter. But, yeah... Jer'my.

Mountains of Calculus. Mountains. Oh, and I started a picture of Frodo that doesn't suck. Too badly. I think. So far. *doesn't like drawing arms* I dunno why, but that's what I have the most trouble with. Arms and shoulders.

Started a hi-res Lucifer picture too, but only got as far as a sketchy-sketch. It's like... him... perching... on a throne... but it's an evil throne. Sense? Not much. This one'll be a red/orange color scheme. Submitted blue-Lucifer to school paper contest thing. Would like to win, as there is money at stake. Ended up calling it "Handsome Devil". Bad puns rule.

Emily Dickinson made my day and she doesn't even know it.

In English class we read this poem. And I was struck by how beautiful it was, how simple, how detached, how amazing.

And then the meaning clicked fully in my head.

Maybe I just have Pet Sematary on the brain after last night, but this... oh, it'd make a great little Victor/Louis. Mmmm.

Yeah. I might have to write that.

Can I issue a challenge to fic writers? Write something based on or structured around a classical poem by a respected author. Not a song, but a poem. Any author, any poem, any series, any pairing (or lack thereof). I'd just like to see it in action more often, you know? I've done maybe... two other fics like this: "The Flea" and "Like a Magnet" were both structured around poetry and spoken word. (Unless you want to count the God-fics as well). So... *puppy-dog eyes* Someone? Please? I'll love you if you do.

If you actually write it, I'll do an illustration for it. There... incentive. Not great incentive, but at least it's something. *wuv*

Hi MOMMY! Don'tcha just love your daughter?
