Happy birthday to [ profile] liaku and [ profile] ender839! :D

[ profile] beatonna drew the Plantagenets! (from The Lion in Winter) Hee, I love her interpretation, especially Becket's expression and Eleanor's glare.

Meme one, unwillingly tagged by [ profile] thedls_sword.
1) Comment to this and I will give you 3 fictional characters.
2) Post this meme with your answers.
3) Provide pictures and the names of 3 people.
4) Label which you would marry, shag, and throw off a cliff.

My thought process was like this:

First, throw Littlefinger off a cliff because I don't trust the dude. He's a very interesting character and has a lot of great moments (and funny ones as well) but he's also really skeevy. His Sansa and Cat issues are, well, rather big, so I'd throw him off a cliff before he can throw me.

I'd marry Jaime. Not that he doesn't have his issues but at least he has a good heart (most of the time). And of course he's a very interesting character but I'm not here to write meta, better read [ profile] queenofthorns posts on him. And he really looks good too?

Which leaves Sandor for the shagging. Eh. Well, fandom seems convinced that he'd be perfect for a good shag so I'll just go with the flow.

Meme two, tagged by [ profile] hamsterwoman
1. Reply to this post, saying "pick me" or similar, and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

Back when I had to choose icons for my LJ I was in a real viola-mood. In case you didn't know, the viola is the most beautiful instrument evar and I play it (obviously). I just like the icon, it's very snappy and rather indicative of the attitude violists have ("Don't ignooore us!"). And I like the fact that the C clef is in the icon as well.

The Lion in Winter is one of my favourite movies (as you can see in my profile). I don't exactly have a favourite character because all the characters are awesome, but Geoffrey is really something. A real plotter with killer lines. I love the scene in this icon, it's so hilarious (and John Castle has pretty eyes).

I think Kate Bush is a great musician (even if her moves are a bit weird) and she's very pretty too, in my opinion. I was just browsing around for pictures of her and then I saw this picture where she had ivy in her hair. I thought it was an awesome picture so I made an icon out of it.

I really like manga and I thought I should have a manga icon. My choice fell on Subaru Sumeragi from Tokyo Babylon and X/1999 (made by Clamp). He's basically the king of angst (kind of logical after the guy you love kills your sister, but this guy takes it to extreme lengths) but I love him anyway (and his love/hate relationship with Seishirou. Basically my manga OTP). And I really liked the picture and the pattern on his shirt (as you can see, I'm all about the pretty).

I watch this show called the Tudors. It has Jonathan Rhys Meyers as Henry VIII. It's actually not really that good (Some bits are great, the last moments of Anne Boleyn, Catherine and Henry More but other bits? Really bad.) but the costumes are great to look at and it's fun (and the new season trailer really cracked me up. It has Queen music, hahaha). Anyway, Mary Tudor is played by Sara Bolger, and I thought she was a very sympathetic character (Also... very pretty) and I really wanted to smack Henry for the way he treated his daughters, but yeah. Jerk ass kings and all.

Also, thanks to [ profile] badalice on the westerosorting chat, I have now discovered I've been laughing ever since. Oh the Schadenfreude.
