So sword happened.

Actually what happened is that Dad is far too willing to pay for things while he's here and went and paid for our weekly groceries. (Dad and Noddy are here helping with moving furniture while we had vinyl laid upstairs to replace the ancient crappy carpet. There's also bookshelves being put up, my two (a Billy and a Benno) are already up, though most of the shelves still need to go in.) It means I had spare money, so I went ahead and got my sword off laybuy.

If you're wondering, it's Strider's sword, from FotR. Not Anduril, the nondescript Ranger sword. At the time I put it on laybuy Anduril didn't look to have a sheath and I wanted a nice straight sword with a sheath included. There's now an Anduril in the store with a sheath, but I'm not even considering it. The one I am considering is the mini-Sting (no sheath either, but it's damn cute), but no, I won't get that either.

Actually before I consider anything else I have a phone bill and Macafee issues to consider.

Meanwhile, the other swords I have just bought are far far smaller - more Lego swords are on order from Ebay - Dwarf swords and extra Stings, and also some capes. I did actually get a replacement to Kili's lost sword in a Minifigure pack that had a Valkyrie, which also had a brown round shield that us now Boromir's, but I still I want spares of both types. And also capes, because I want to put capes on Fili, Kili and Thorin. Maybe also one on Bilbo.

Meanwhile, once my cube shelf unit is done, I'll work out some way to display Strider (I think that's what I'll call my new non-bendy sword) on top of it. I hope Feltimus and Felty Magnus's protective canisters fit in the cubes.

A Choice
G rated.

Bilbo meets a hobbit lass in Valinor, and is presented with a choice.

The prompt was one of my prompts. It got a short but sweet fic.
mimi_sardinia: (S3 Mimi)
Well that was a good movie, but I wasn't expecting it to be bad. Here are some random thoughts:

Martin Freeman looks better with the hobbit wig than he does with short hair. His ears however... well the hobbit ears were not quite working for me. Or the feet - too big.

I love that they did include the Dwarves singing that fun song about what Bilbo hates - I still kinda miss the song in Bree that Frodo did, but I understand why that one was left out while this one could be kept.

Kili is cute (in a "Hey! Gorgeous guy!" sort of way, but as some opinions I saw around have, he a little out of place amongst the rest. I also subscribe to another opinion I have seen around that he is very young - maybe even still in the tag end of adolescence for a Dwarf.

Now the one who really melts my loin into butter (to borrow a quote from Jared Padalecki) is Thorin. I will say however is that I like him better in the current time - the grey streaks make him look great and I was not very impressed with the curly hair in the flashbacks. Plus I prefer straight hair just that bit more.

Balin. The white-haired Dwarf who spoke of how Thorin fought the white orc - is that the same Balin who would later reclaim Moria only to lose it again when the Balrog awakes?

I really liked the discussion scene at Rivendell, with Gandalf, Elrond, Galadriel and Sauruman. Also, I did spot a few fun little hark-backs, or is that hark-forwards? "I never doubted you for a second." and the scene where Bilbo first puts on the ring. Cute little continuity nods to LotR.

Now I want porn. Thorin/Bilbo porn. Somewhere where I saw those comments about Kili's age and such I also saw comments about that as a pairing. Not a bad idea.

Meanwhile on my wishlist of things I don't expect to see: Michael/Dean, with Michael wearing Adam, and bottoming. Just because I damn well wish it existed.

Nabbed this off of [livejournal.com profile] firefly99 -

Make a list of all the characters in your icons. (Although you may have more than one icon of a single character, they only go on the list once.) Alphabetize it. Take the first two people on the list; that's your first pairing. Second two people; second pairing. etc.

Namelist )

Pairings! )
mimi_sardinia: (More Fun Than A Hole In The Head)
These were all I could think of at this point, I've probably forgotten some - definately in LotR, HP and DBZ.

My masterlist of my pairings history )

Fandoms listed include FFVII, FFVIII, FFIX, FFX and X-2, LotR, Dr. Who, CCS, GW, Smallville, X-Men, PotC, BtVS/A, DCU, Narnia, Apocalyptica RPS, HP, DBZ, BG and USS Sevilia.

And I didn't include threesomes, foursomes and moresomes.

...except the Dr. Who ones.

It seems I may finally get one of my Sim families into one of the premium Magic Town housing properties. Though of all the families to get there it'll end up being the Bauglir family - the one that consists of Morgoth, Sauron, Curunír (aka Saruman) and Ultimacia.

Couldn't happen to a nicer family. *Snerk*

I also decided to go look in my beloved Valentine household. Had a rather cute scene come up just before I closed:
I'd sent Cloud to work on his logic skills by playing chess. Squall was the first finished the morning's round of gardening so I sent him up to join Cloud. So the chess game plays out and I prodded Squall into kissing Cloud and wouldn't you know it? Seph came up right at that point and decided off the cuff to kiss Cloud as well.
Not only did I NOT get any jealousy issues (does that mean the mod I got is actually working?) but they are at a nice happy 100/100 relationship score all around (meaning all of them have 100/100s for both of the others).

It's nice when family life is happy!

Well technically the newbie is still under the Bint's keeping - he's just blaming *me* for his icons.

My defense there is that I once read one of [livejournal.com profile] morgana_avalon's fics where she wrote Námo as having white hair - the only place I have come across him not having black hair. So, white hair on Námo? He looks like Sephiroth now! XD

I am very inclined to join [livejournal.com profile] desperatefans - not as myself, since I am hardly a literary character, but with a pup of my own.

The Valar don't want me though, not so much that the pup I want to enter with is one of their "family" but because of my plans for his icons.

After getting distracted with the Súlimo household I finally got around to correcting my ommission )

Only I not only added Jecht but also put Lenne in, having finally worked out which head was suposed to be hers.
mimi_sardinia: (Default)
Okay, just following up on my last post, I finished the latest residents of my Sim neighbourhood.

Oh Eru help me... )

It is scary how good Usagi looks wearing Yuna's X-2 outfit - and Yavanna's winter gown for that matter, And it looks like Hojo won't be staying at Edea's house.

Pictures when I'm done with some more family-building.

Thsi is the second time I have tried to get Nienna settled back home after buying pets only to have it crash!
I suspect it has nothing to do with the pets and something to do with something in the house itself that I need to not have there. I will have to test the C&C objects that are unproven and hope that fixes it.

The annoying thing is I am going to have to erase Nienna again, remake her, refurnish the house and then get her pets again.

Mir gave me a link to a site full of useful hacked objects that I have been trying out. The garden plots are especially good.

I have also worked out a minor technical issue that was bugging me - Tidus tended to be invisible when he was naked, and also lacked hands when he wasn't. Another reference sent me back to this site - one had actually been to before and had picked up several skins from. This time around I got an idea that maybe if I traded off Tidus' body skin I may be able to solve the invisiblity issue and lo and behold if it didn't work! As funny as the invisible body thing could be it kinda crimped my voyueristic tendencies as it hardly was interesting to have Tidus in bed with anybody else when I couldn't damn-well see what he was doing!

Also, this is not the first case of trading heads and bodies between various versions of the same character, Auron's head comes from that same skin site (Corry's Factory) while his body is from somewhere else. My reasons there is that what little I do know of him he doesn't seem the sort to wear really bright colours and the Corry-skin had his clothes a bit too bright to my mind.
Rikku is the same, I have a total of three skins for her, two of them FFX and one X-2 and I have her with the X-2 head but wearing one of the FFX bodies because frankly, I like the X-2 head but the Spira family, as it is constructed, is pretty-well all FFX (as far as I understand).
Same story with Cloud, I like the head that looks a bit more like the game-version but I have him dressed in the AC outfit and before reinstalling I had Squall dressed in the Leon outfit from KH (though the head from that skin was horrific).

I finally got around to making some more of the Valar families and it seems the average number of members in the is four - husband and wife Valar and two Maiar. I do however have a few odd houses, ones I was finding spots in for outside (non-Silm) characters. Ulmo's household includes the GF Siren (FF8), Mandos includes the Aeon Shiva (FFX) and the Bauglir household (Morgoth's) includes Ultimacia (FF8).
I do believe the Kramer house (Headed by Edea) will be more mixed, being the place where random characters that I can't put elsewhere (Yuffie, Jessie, Paine, Hojo, Alatar (Maia - one of the Blue Wizards)) will go. It kinda fits Edea to have the ragtag leftovers anyway.
Compared with this households the Valentine house, which has two FF7 characters and one FF8 doesn't seem so odd.

The only issue is that I am not sure how I will fit all of these folks into the neighbourhood but I will have to see how I go on that.

I also saw something rather curious when I got it into my head to send Tidus and Yuna on a date, there is some guy who wandered across my view downtown who has Finrod's head while wearing a Galbadian army uniform (from the much lamented Laguna skin whose head I hated). My first thought on it was "Galbadian elf?!!" I have seen this before, in Magic Town - the random mixing of heads and bodies to create NPCs. There's a couple of interesting cases in MT, one with Celebrían's head and a deep red dress, the other with Arwen's head and a somewhat gypsy-like multicoloured dress. It's kind-of amusing to see but that Galbadian elf... well, that was even more so!

Edit: Oh, and just as I remember it, I went and did what I was planning, I bought the Valentine Household a dog and named it Laguna. I still really think that's fitting, Squall having a dog named after him (especially as I don't have a sim of him)!

Oh, and does anyone know a good idea for a family name for a group of FF9 characters? I have skins of Beatrix, Eiko, Garnet, Kuja and Zidane and I don't know anything about FF9!

Well we got the Fullhouse pack and did a total reinstallation - pity we didn't know it would whipe out our well-played sims.

I've lost the lot, all of my neighbourhood.

I will be reconstructing them of course, I've already started on doing just that whith the Valentine, Gainsborough, Garden and SeeD families built. There has been one significant change though, Seifer is in the family group as Irvine and Zell and until I have investigated skins available I don't know where Edea will be.

So far all I have done is building their funds again, curtesy of the Rosebud Financial Aid Society. Seifer, Irvine and Zell are on a peice of land but other than some minor chatting and opening the free box of magic stuff I haven't done anything with them yet - even building a house. I'm not sure I will leave them on that property either.

The other familes I have also set back to their starting compsision, meaning the Valentine household is Seph, Cloud and Squall, the Gainsboroughs are Aeris and Zack.

I have yet to build the Spira house again, I want to see what other skins are available. I had problems with the Sulimo house as well because Manwe's skin was not showing up in the character creation section.
I also want to make more elves and reconstruct the F***wit family from my Weirdo neighbourhood. They may not be exactly the same as before though.

I'm not sure I will be able to find skins of Yuffie, Vincent or Cid Highwind - I've looked and the ones I have seen are crappy. I want to see if there a Cid Kramer, find a Rajin (I have Fujin), see if there's a Tseng and who's that FF10 guy, Kimhari?
I still wish I could find a head that I could use for Laguna, I want a Laguna!!!!

In other good things, some of the items I simply couldn't use are now usable. I hope I don't get more crashes for using them though.

We'll see how it goes, we have to go to bed soon though, early doctor's apointment tomorrow.

Off the top of your head, right now, what ten 'ships would you likely drop what you're doing to read fic for? Or, alternately, what are the top ten ships that you'll give a fic a chance for, or that you've been dying to write, or that you've been dying to read... These can be new loves, old flames, or something in between. Explain if you like, but you don't have to. Then tell us 3 things these ships say about you. Leave a comment about what you think these ships say about me, then repeat in your own LJ.

Don't have to do that last part unless you really want to. Like Ran, I just copied the meme.

Okay, I made a mistake about the situation between Tidus and Paine, Tidus loves Paine but she only thinks of him as friend. This is good because Tidus is now involved with Rikku and if Paine doesn't reciprocate it means she won't be slapping Tidus. So as long as Tidus doesn't decide to kiss Paine while Rikku is looking and I'm not he's in for a nice lovelife.

Meanwhile I finally got Auron to move house! After turning down three proposals from Quistis (two on the grounds that he can't consider such a momentous decision on an empty stomache, the other because he was uncomformable and wanted to sit down) so I sent him off for the night. In between that fiasco and the next time I invited him over to the Heartly household I went and played with his own house - the Spira household - and while there I did a test and Quistis accepted a proposal from him. I didn't save that one though, the wedding photos loved crap with them standing in the corner next to the teleporters. Just my luck that I did too because next time I opened the game I went to the Heartly House first and tried again during that turn in getting Quistis to propose and this time Auron accepted.

So now Auron's moved house and Tidus has moved in to share a room (and a bed) with Rikku leaving the Spira house with two superfluous bedrooms. I ended up demolishing the house and rebuilding on a bit cozier scale, though the third bathroom ended up a bit of an afterthought, taking a chunk out of the outdoor balcony, but considering the toilet issues that were arising between 4 housemates and 2 visitors that had dropped by (Rufus and one of the Pleiades girls) it was a nessecary addition.

I'm seriously considering rebuilding the Heartly's house again as well, it's so damn big! That's what I get though for setting it up for massive parties I guess. I'm also still considering changing the Valentine house and also doing something about consolidating the SeeD, Garden and Gainsborough families (Edea & Seifer, Irvine & Zell, Zack & Maia) either into each other or into other family groups so I can consider hunting more skins to add more characters to the neighbourhood, though if I do that I may consider withdrawing the Pleiades and the Sulimo families in favour of FF sims.

I can really ramble about my sims can't I?

Valar Sims

A random thought sent me looking for Lord of the Rings sim skins and I stumbled upon a website that has skins for the Silmarillion.

To say that the Bint is pleased is an understatement and a couple of my fellow bonds... well I share the Bint's headspace with some of the Valar and while Manwë has a preference for not wearing a beard (he took a fondness to a celebrity the Bint is a fan of and now wears icons wherever he can of that person) they're both hopping to make a Valar neighbourhood once the skins are downloaded and installed.
mimi_sardinia: (Default)
I just had a strange image come to mind, Námo Mandos taking on an appearance like Sephiroth.

I have actually read of a white-haired Námo before, [livejournal.com profile] morgana_avalon wrote Námo like that so it's not totally odd but... whee! Fandom crossing! Plus even as cute as he is Seph also looks rather evil unsettling.

If the Bint wants to enlist Námo amongst her muses in the future I may insist she let me do his icons out with Sephiroth pictures *giggle*.
mimi_sardinia: (Default)
Debating religion is crap.

The Bint is christian, in fact she's the sort of christian who believes in a literal 6 day creation and takes many of the stories in the bible at face value.

Frankly, I'm tired of the whole thing so I'm declaring myself exempt from it and declaring myself a Valarist.

Given the Valar I know (online), it'll be a far freer existence.

(This does not reflect in the Bint, she's still a christian, just one with a Valarist alter ego now.)
