fialleril: [y'all don't know 'bout my flawless logic] (T'Pring)
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the single most glorious moment of my career.

Yes, that is Lady Gaga!T'Pring, Vulcan goddess of pop, brought to you by the amazing [livejournal.com profile] starfoozle.

Her skirt is made of lensflare. I can achieve no more greatness in my life.

I have ridiculous revelations late at night. (Shut up; 11:30 is late!) And lately they all revolve around Lady Gaga?

Out of sheer masochism, apparently, I did a search for T'Pring on DeviantArt. And, as expected, the number of pics that had "bitch" in the title was over 9000. (Actually, I tell a lie. There are only like 30 pics of her tops. Sad day.)

And while I was doing this, I happened to be listening to Lady Gaga, specifically "Bad Romance." And suddenly, it just...clicked.

T'Pring is the Lady Gaga of Vulcan.

pictorial evidence, maybe? )

1. Happy Hanukkah to those celebrating tonight!

2. Huge thanks to [livejournal.com profile] lumy12 and [livejournal.com profile] haydens_angel81 for the holiday cards! They're adorning our dining room table now.

3. So, uh...did anyone read the fic commentary I posted for "Clone Wars GI"? I'm not looking for comments or anything, but I'm just curious about whether it was read!

4. Apparently they are making a movie of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Natalie Portman is starring and producing. This...could be really interesting. For a given value of interesting.

5. Here is a fic about T'Pring being fierce and awesome. The world would be a better place if there were more like it!

Or, the promised Halloween pics plus a good bit of unexpected and unwanted drama on the side. Things which have forced me to add "overidentifying with Vulcans" to my LJ interest list in an effort to bring something at least kind of amusing out of the situation.

But first the good things. We had a Halloween potluck at our JV house on Friday, to which none of the people we were required to invite actually came. This was, in fact, not a bad thing, since we didn't know any of those people, anyway. And some folks Amy knew from work and an awesome lady named Adriane who is a friend of one of our support people did come. (It turns out Adriane is a hairdresser and is going to cut our hair for free tonight, so!) Also our other support person, Mary Ellen, and one of her friends. Good times were had. We held a costume contest and gave away some truly awful, glow-in-the-dark pictures of Jesus as prizes. (They were donated to us, but they had to go. It was for the best.)

Under this cut there are pictures! And incoherent asexual rage! )

Okay, fine, whatever, I'm a bandwagon kid.

Give me any character, and I'll tell you ten things about them from my personal canon.

Hit me with your best shot, kids.

I discovered a couple days ago that Atlanta's famous Fox Theater was running a summer movie special with a different movie every night, and as last night was...well, the last night I'd have to do anything exiting in Atlanta, I decided to go out with a bang. It was purely coincidence that they happened to be showing Star Trek last night.

Pure coincidence, I assure you.

In any case, it was a great show. When the Fox shows movies, they don't just show movies, they do it old school and make an evening of it. There was actually a wine tasting before the show, but I was feeling cheap, so I didn't go for that. Still, the price of a movie ticket (at $8, it was actually cheaper than a regular theater around here) got me not only the movie itself, but a short concert from "Mighty Mo" (the old theater organ from the days of silent films, when music and occasional sound effects were provided in house), a news reel, a brief documentary on the history of the Fox Theater, and a cartoon short. It was a heck of a lot of fun, and the only thing I regret is that none of my friends were able to go with me.

I attempted to take some pictures inside the Fox, because it really is a gorgeous theater. My camera didn't cooperate too well, though, because the lighting was off, but I got a few that are kinda decent. Also, I have some random observations after having seen Star Trek four times now.

Snagged this from [livejournal.com profile] lexy_opal. I've done a similar one for pairings, but this one seems more fun. ;)

List 15 of your favorite characters from different fandoms, and ask people to spot patterns in your choices, and if they're so inclined, to draw conclusions about you based on the patterns they've spotted.

1. Alexei Fyodorovich Karamazov [The Brothers Karmazov] | Shut up. It's a fandom if I say it is.
2. Frodo Baggins [The Lord of the Rings]
3. Luke Skywalker [Star Wars Original Trilogy]
4. Shmi Skywalker [Star Wars Prequel Trilogy]
5. Aang and Mai [Avatar: The Last Airbender] | I really can't decide between them, so they're both here.
6. Ba'el [Star Trek: The Next Generation] | Though if I had to pick a series regular, it would be Worf.
7. Evey Hammond [V for Vendetta]
8. LĂșthien TinĂșviel [The Silmarillion]
9. Nyota Uhura and T'Pring [Star Trek: The Original Series] | No, seriously. I can only conclude that so many people hate T'Pring because they're jealous of her flawless logic. And her awesome.
10. Edmund Pevensie [The Chronicles of Narnia]
11. Persephone [Greek Mythology] | Totally a fandom. It has a section on FFN and everything.
12. Nightcrawler [X-Men movieverse]
13. Cham Syndulla [Star Wars: The Clone Wars]
14. Paikea [Whale Rider]
15. Kiowa [The Things They Carried]

There's no Star Trek XI character here because I am completely incapable of narrowing it down to even two. It's a seven-way tie between Chekov, Gaila, McCoy, Sarek, Spock, Sulu, and Uhura. (And see, I have even alphabetized them because I couldn't decide what order to write them in!)

oh hai, I still exist

Just so you know. Though once JVC starts in August, I will probably become very scarce, as one of the tenets of the JV year is a limited use of technology. On that note, is anyone here interested in being a co-mod for [livejournal.com profile] neu_beginning? I know I haven't been much of a mod anyway.

I dropped my sister off at the airport today, so now I'll just be hanging out in Atlanta for another month before I take a short visit home, and then it's on to Chicago. We had a pretty great time on her visit, mostly doing geeky things. ;) Although there was that one time where my computer decided to die, and we had to go on an epic search for a new laptop. I was tempted to name my new computer Spock because the search was just that epic, but ultimately I named it Rowena instead. What? I like the name Rowena.

After the Great Computer Fiasco there was the con, which was actually a pretty minor affair, and not terribly exciting. It was a very small and low-key con. But we had fun all the same. I got to wear my Vulcan ears, and I put a couple strands of hair in front of them this time. The president of the Atlanta Star Trek fanclub told me I looked like T'Pring, which I took as the highest of compliments. ;) (Yes, really. I am a T'Pring fangirl. I don't get why everyone hates her - perhaps because she's just too awesome? Someday, there will probably be meta. Also, anyone know where I can find some good icons of her? I'd make some myself, but I have to get photoshop set up on the new computer first. Ugh.)

We also visited the Fernbank Museum of Natural History, of which pictures later (along with a few con pics), once I figure this thing out. Other than that we mostly just had a lot of fun hanging out. Oh, and we did a marathon of pretty much every Worf-centric episode in The Next Generation. It was epic.

I guess I've never mentioned it before on this LJ, but Worf was basically my first character crush. I was very pleased to discover that, 12 years later, he is still one of my character crushes. Ninja!Worf is the best. Also, I now have a rather impressive girl crush on Ba'el (and yeah, there will probably be icons). I mean, I am pretty certain that a half-Vulcan, half-Klingon would be the awesomest thing in the universe, but a half-Romulan, half-Klingon is the next best thing, and it's canon, so I'll take it. (If y'all are confused, you should go watch the TNG episode "Birthright" (parts 1 and 2) right now. It is awesome, I promise.)

And to round out our week of epic geekery, yesterday my sister and I went to see the new Trek movie again. Upon reflection, I think it's now safe to say that the scene between Spock and Sarek towards the end is my favorite scene, although it's a near thing. Clearly, I need a Sarek icon as well.

It's probably unsurprising that, after a week or so of Worf marathon, seeing this movie made us both long for some TNG in Reboot universe. We've even got the story all figured out. Here's how it would go: In Reboot 'verse, the Khitomer massacre would never happen. In fact, let's take it further and say that the Khitomer Accords would never happen, either, so in TNG time in Reboot 'verse, the Klingon Empire and the Federation are still at war. Worf grew up with his parents in the Empire, and is now an officer aboard a Klingon ship, fighting against the Federation. Most of the rest of the Enterprise crew could end up being the same, I suppose. Except that the Enterprise would chiefly be a battleship in this 'verse, so no families. Which means Wesley Crusher stays on Earth. Darn. ;)

K'Ehleyr could still be a diplomat working for the Federation. She could have plenty of conflict because of her dual heritage, particularly since humans and Klingons are at war. (Don't ask me how her parents got together in this universe, but clearly they should, because she is too awesome not to exist.)

And when the Borg invade, the Federation and the Klingons would have to forge a shaky alliance in order to defeat them. K'Ehleyr should be instrumental in forming this alliance, and Worf, of course, would be one of the main players once the alliance was formed. He'd probably end up on the Enterprise somehow.

Also, Ba'el should exist in this universe. How, you say? Well, I kind of like the idea that in Reboot 'verse, the Klingons and the Romulans are actually allies. Crazy, I know. But this universe needs to shake more things up. Also, somehow Ba'el and K'Ehleyr should meet and become friends and do awesome things together. Worf can come too.

Why yes, this hypothetical movie is all about the Klingons.
