I wanted the Magic Time Lord's Hideout, but this one comes with two different rooms for dancing, so I'm good!

Your home is a

Gamer's Mansion

Your kitchen consists of dilithium-powered food replicators, manned by obedient robot slaves, who are sure to never, ever rebel. I mean, it's preposterous to even consider it. There's a Chocolatessen, which is rapidly becoming your favorite room of the house. Having one is also becoming a trend among your wealthy neighbors. Your master bedroom is the size of a small barn, with carpet thick enough to reach your ankles. Your study has every science fiction title ever written. One of your garages contains a life-sized X-Wing fighter, and KITT. (KITT was a gift from a well-meaning uncle.)

Your home also includes a robot repair bay, where your mechanized servants are routinely fitted with new restraining bolts. (It's just a precaution.) Your guests enjoy your animatronic replica of the cantina at Mos Eisley. Outside is your radio telescope, listening constantly for alien transmissions. Especially invaders. They'll come eventually, even if nobody believes you. (Nobody does.)

And, you have a pet -- a taun-taun named "Padme".

Below is a snippet of the blueprints:

...which is what you bitches will be thrown over if you mess with me on my path to world dominance.

uh... or something?

The thing that amuses me most about this is the part where it says people are afraid of me, and with good reason. I've actually run into this on occasion, but I really don't understand it. I'm not a scary person. I'm wee. I'm polite. If I don't like a person, chances are I'll just avoid being in social situations with them so that I don't have to put up with them or be bored by them. This means that I'm not really all that vindictive. I'm so soft-hearted that I save spiders. Why do they all fear me so?

Hey all! So, I was thinking about the collective nouns (the words used to describe groups of critters). There are some great ones out there, such as "a piteousness of doves", "a murmurring of starlings", an "unkindness of ravens", "a murder of crows", "a rhumba of rattlesnakes", etc.

More here:

But I thought, wouldn't it be fun to come up with better collective nouns for the poor critters who have lame collective nouns? Or to come up with collective nouns for critters or things that don't have one? So, if you have a critter that needs one, needs a better one, or if you just want to spend the day generating cool collective nouns, post 'em here. I'll consolidate them at some point into some kind of organized chaos, and we can vote for our faves.

To get started:

A quest of paladins
An argument of academics
A contraryness of cats
A paradox of foxes
A regeneration of Doctors

Edit: the fox has pointed out that one might also call a regeneration of Doctors "a Tom Baker's Dozen".

Gakked from [ profile] lyl_devil. I've done this before, but the characters have changed, and it's a fun meme.

Pick 12 characters you like, and then answer the questions below the cut about them. Obviously first choose your characters before you see the questions.

1)The Doctor (Nine) - Doctor Who
2)Rose - Doctor Who
3)Aeriel - The Darkangel Trilogy
4)The Fool - Robin Hobb's books
5)Revan - Knights of the Old Republic (warning, KotOR spoilers!)
6)Obi-wan Kenobi - Star Wars (Clone Wars era, for me)
7)Talon Kardde - EU Star Wars
8)Severus Snape - Harry Potter
9)Hermione Granger - Harry Potter
10)Faith - BtVS
11)Kelson - Kurtz's Deryni novels
12)Starbuck - BSG

I wasn't tapped for this. I'm only doing it because I ran into it while doing/avoiding my welsh homework, which happens to be translating the first Harry Potter book. The gods conspire against me.

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 23.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next three sentences in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.
6. Tag five other people to do the same.

For those of you who may be wondering where I'd gotten off to, I have finally got my new computer set-up, recovered my lost material, solved my major sticking points, reviewed the pertinent canon material, written a few chapters ahead, and will begin posting again on The Parting of Ways and The Devil's Due soon.

In the meantime, I picked up the following meme from [ profile] the_sandwalker and thought it looked like a fun bit of crack

Name three fics you think I will never, ever, ever write. In return, I will attempt to write a snippet of one of them.
