Welcome to My LiveJournal
If you are here, mostly I use this LiveJournal for posting and linking my fanfics, as well as for occasional personal posts and photos. You will find that most of my posts, though, concern the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, and tend to be very hobbit-centric.

You do not need to ask my permission to remix, podfic, translate, create art for or create secondary fanwork of any fanwork I have created. You should credit me and include a link back to my work. And please let me know because I'd love to see it.

4th-Mar-2015 09:16 am - B2MEM add a prompt day!
bag end 2 by <lj user="danae_b">
Over at b2memsupport, zhie has declared Wednesday "Add-a-Prompt Day"!

So if you are participating in B2MeM, go over and add a new prompt! If you haven't taken part so far, know that you are given 15 farthings to spend on prompts and claims, just for attending the Faire! The market stalls can be found here. Just go to the appropriate venue and post your prompt!

Here's an extra challenge for my hobbit-friends: There aren't nearly enough prompts in The Shire! Even if you don't think you will have time to write anything yourself, go over and leave a bunny there! You can leave up to 15 prompts before you run out of Faire Farthings, and you can always earn more by reviewing any of the 2015 stories at b2mem: one comment=1 farthing!

One of the Christmas gifts I got this year was Walking with Frodo, "a devotional journey through The Lord of the Rings", which teases out some of the lessons we can learn from the characters' journey. I thought a little portion of this devotional was appropriate for today:

Because Frodo is humble, he is willing to serve. He knows he doesn't have all the answers. He isn't even sure he'll accomplish the task. But he's willing, even though it breaks his heart to think of all that will be lost, knowing he might never, ever return to life as it was before he left the Shire. Little does he imagine the glorious outcome of his actions--the great celebration "at the end of all things," when Middle-earth is restored and the true King is enthroned in Gondor and the people rejoice in victory!"

"The apostle
Peter wrote (from personal experience "Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time." (1 Peter: 5-6)"

"This is the lesson of Frodo, making his way into the heart of Sauron's kingdom: Humble service is the key to victory."

Psalm 22:22-31 (KJV)

22 I will declare thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.

23 Ye that fear the Lord, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel.

24 For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither hath he hid his face from him; but when he cried unto him, he heard.

25 My praise shall be of thee in the great congregation: I will pay my vows before them that fear him.

26 The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the Lord that seek him: your heart shall live for ever.

27 All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the Lord: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.

28 For the kingdom is the Lord's: and he is the governor among the nations.

29 All they that be fat upon earth shall eat and worship: all they that go down to the dust shall bow before him: and none can keep alive his own soul.

30 A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation.

31 They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that he hath done this.

27th-Feb-2015 09:59 pm - Leonard Nimoy: some memorable moments
bag end 2 by <lj user="danae_b">
Of course he was most famous as Mr. Spock, but he played many really good roles.

I loved him as Paris in Mission Impossible. This scene is fun to watch, as he is acting with Mark Lennard who played his father Sarek in ST.

He was in a lot of Westerns. Usually (though not always) he played Native Americans or Mexican Americans. I saw this episode of Gunsmoke not too long ago.

And here are some cameos:

The Simpsons...

The Big Bang theory...

Here he is, stumping the panel on What's My Line?

And who can forget his singing career. Here's his biggest hit! ;)

Finally, I came across this tonight, in which he speaks of his Yiddish background and his childhood:
