Still here

Just wanted to let you guys know (in case anyone was wondering... which I seriously doubt, though) that I'm still here, still alive. Unfortunately, it has been a really rough time for our family in the last few months, as well as me moving to another city again (where I still have no phone or internet *sigh*). Whenever this crap is over, I'm gonna be an active part of the community again. Still, thinking of you guys often. *hugs and kisses*

Because I've just finished uploading everything necessary for the publishing company to create my book and because it's Thanksgiving in the US (and though I'm not living there, I am still thankful for things), I wanna promote this video.
It's been very hard for me at times because of many things - and still is sometimes - but somehow there's always this tiny spark of hope left that it actually gets better, that's a reason why I totally support the It Gets Better videos. Also, because if they help to prevent at least one individual from committing suicide, it's totally worth it. I know that feeling, and how awfully alone a person can believe they are. It gets better, though.

Alright, I should be writing my Magister thesis and I promise to get back to it in just a few moments. But I gotta write about this first.
Last night, two lovely guys (Matty and Bobby) broke the Guinness World Record for longest kiss (http://stfproductions.wordpress.com/2010/09/20/they-did-it-matty-and-bobby-break-the-record-in-the-name-of-lgbt-rights/). And they're the first gay people to do it (no, they're not a couple - Bobby's got a boyfriend, who was very supportive of them). By accident, I stumbled onto the livestream last night and watched for some time. (Okay... I watched for a very, very, VERY long time... but since I'm getting sick, I just couldn't bring myself to write anything on my paper...) It was so overwhelming to see all the support, from all over the world, I actually started crying when they broke the record, it was such a touching moment. I guess most people can't even come close to imagining how physically and mentally straining such a thing is. They weren't allowed to go to the bathroom (and no adult nappies/diapers allowed); no sitting down, no pillows, no people touching them (only handing them stuff); and their lips had to touch all the time, absolutely no exceptions.
And they've done it. They broke the record (which was 32h07m14s), which should then be something like 32 hours and 30 minutes (if I remember correctly). They're so exceptionally strong - it takes a lot to do something like that and not give up. Wow. I definitely take a bow.
Go and have a look at it on their homepage http://mattyandbobbykiss.tripod.com/index.html (also, take a look at the good cause they were doing it for http://www.thetrevorproject.org/ ), search them on facebook or twitter, also videos on youtube and ustream.tv! It was just so touching, I'm still close to crying every time I see the interviews after they were through. (Alright, I have to admit, I've been teary-eyed all day because of this and my love of LotR... don't ask... I guess, I'm going mental...)



Love you guys!!! <3

Survey

I've posted a survey about two years back and used it in my seminar paper (called "Homosexual aspects in The Lord of the Rings films and how the fans received it"). Now, I'm actually writing on my 'Magisterarbeit' (similar to a master's thesis) and I would be very grateful for your help.
The thesis will be called "Transmedial Narrative: Fanfiction and The Lord of the Rings" and I will try to demonstrate how fanfictions are an example of transmedial storytelling, going from books to movies to fanfictions and beyond.

First of all, it will help me a lot with my research if any of you can point me to stories (containing Legolas/Aragorn) which are initiated by (or contain) scenes from the book or - preferably - the movie.

Also, here's the slightly modified survey from two years ago, it'd be great if you take a moment to give some answers. All comments will be screened, or send it to my email vampirebitch@web.de
And, even if you have taken the survey two years ago, feel free to do it again. :) Since last time there were so many requests, I'll put up the thesis when it's done, if there are people actually interested in it (officially it should be done by end of September...).

The first five people to comment in this post get to request that I write a drabble/ficlet of a pairing/character of their choosing (within reason, of course =D). In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level. I'm not commenting on my own ability level, of course.

What I'll write:
* almost any character Orlando or Viggo has ever played (make a request and only if it's absolutely impossible for me, I'll talk to you about that again and we'll make amendments)
* Viggo/Orlando "RL" (meaning it can be AU as well)

If you really wish for a completely different pairing (LotR, Buffy) let me know and we'll work something out.

Please add a setting to character/pairing, and we're game.

Write 6 things about yourself, then tag 6 people to do the same!

1. I've got two tattoos on my left ankle.

2. A few years ago I went to a course and learned how to make my own clothes.

3. My boyfriend is my first boyfriend and the first person who really kissed me.

4. I'm sick a lot, most of the time I've got the flu or at least have a cold.

5. I want to emigrate to New Zealand as fast as possible, far away from my family.

6. Until 1998 I had a rabbit called 'Gizmo'. After she died I thought it was my fault (and I still think it's my fault) and I still think about her often and mourn, because she was all I had and she wasn't even three years old when she died.

I'm tagging [livejournal.com profile] dirtysidekick, [livejournal.com profile] gelirovadiel, [livejournal.com profile] kelly1108, [livejournal.com profile] spikes_luv and [livejournal.com profile] eponinenkind, but only if you want to do it, otherwise just don't. ;-)

THE COURSE OF TRUE LOVE NEVER
DID RUN SMOOTH, PART 11
In order to marry a commoner named Anne Boleyn, England’s Henry VIII divorced his wife, the Spanish-born princess Catherine of Aragon; scandalized Europe; became furious with the Pope when he refused to grant him an annulment; broke with the Roman Catholic Church; and created the Church of England. But after all that, when Anne couldn’t produce a male heir, Henry had her executed on trumped-up charges. (Ironically, before Anne was beheaded, she gave birth to a girl who would become one of England’s greatest monarchs, Elizabeth I.)

PILGRIMS IN LOVE
Every year around Thanksgiving, American schoolchildren learn the following tale of love and courtship in the Plymouth Colony: The shy widower Miles Standish asks his friend John Alden to propose marriage on his behalf to the lovely Priscilla Mullins. But Priscilla likes the quiet Alden more, so her response to the surrogate proposal is, "Speak for yourself, John Alden." The story comes from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s immensely popular poem 'The Courtship of Miles Standish.' All we know for sure about this famous love triangle is that Priscilla married John Alden, probably before 1623; Standish remarried in 1623 or 1624; and the Aldens had two children by 1627. No wonder Longfellow turned to old family legends and his own imagination to create one of the great American love stories.
