Which book would you want to see turned into a videogame?

The Bible.

Don't even try and argue with me. That shit would be like Final Fantasy in length and content.

But seriously, it confuses the hell out of me.

I found someone posted fanart for Die Buchhandlung which got me curious, and I've found....... loads of stuff I never saw before.

Granted, there have been fanartists who've shown me their work (ILU btw ;3;) and no one's under obligation to tell me jack shit but....

*pokes fingers together*

Makes me feel good about myself.

Everyone's been pimping it out, but may I recommend to you TIME's totally not condescending article on fanfiction?

And may I just say that I love that people still write Oz fic like five years after the show ended? *paws at*

As presented by a family member who worked on it, may I introduce you to Operation Plowshare ( http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Plowshare ) in which the US government from 1961 to 1974 checks out how dope it would be to use nukes for peaceful construction purposes?

"What? Really?"

"Oh yes. There was talk of Los Angeles being too hot and in need of a cross breeze. Had to get those pesky mountains out of the way."

" Are you sure this wasn't called 'Operation Really Bad Idea'?"

From this post, some thoughtful insight by guarded_logic:

Darim is introduced as an accomplished marksman that kills Genghis, but then he starts acting like kind of a douchebag.

He travels to Alamut to get his brother and finds out he was murdered in Masyaf, which means they were previously lied to and his parents are almost certainly walking into a trap. What does he do? Stay in Alamut. Then his father comes and tells him that his brother, mother and "practically uncle" Malik were killed by order of the current leader of Masyaf. Which puts Darim in almost the same position as Ezio - with one parent dead and the other in shock, but what does he do? Nothing. He's the son a Grandmaster and the best arbalist they have and he doesn't try to avenge his family? Start a revolt? He could've at least collected a hundred feathers for Altair or something. But instead he's all "Daddy, why you no love me anymore?" and goes on a Eurotrip until his father gets his power back.

He seems all the more indifferent to both his family's and the Brotherhood's cause when compared to Tazim.


Also, some developer is all liek, "Yea bro, books are canon."

To which I reject your reality and substitute it with my own where Malik lives peacefully forever, pushing novices off of tall towers of which they sometimes fall into haystacks.

From the ACWiki and a discussion here: http://nothingtrue.livejournal.com/169757.html

In 1217, Altaïr, his wife Maria and their son Darim left for Mongolia to deal with the rising and threatening Genghis Khan, and Malik was left in control of the order. Eight years later, Abbas Sofian, another high-ranking Assassin, staged a coup in which he had Altaïr's other son Sef killed and had the murder weapon put in Malik's bed; thus making everyone believe Malik was the killer. In addition, one of Abbas' spies claimed to have heard Malik and Abbas argue the same day. Abbas had Malik thrown into the prison located in the dungeons below Masyaf.[2]

Two years later, Altaïr and his family returned and Abbas tried to trick them into believing Malik was the killer. Altaïr didn't believe it, and infiltrated the prison to rescue Malik. He brought Malik, who was in a bad condition, back to their residence, where he revealed the truth about what had happened. After having made sure he was asleep, Altaïr and Maria left Malik in their residence to confront Abbas. However, in their absence, Abbas' spy Swami had killed and beheaded Malik and put his head in a burlap sack, which he delivered to Abbas whilst being confronted by Altaïr and Maria.

Altaïr, many years later, met Malik's son, Tazim Al-Sayf, and together, aided by other assassins still loyal to Altaïr, killed Abbas and ruled the Assassin Order once again, presumably with Tazim as his right-hand man.[2]

Found this floating around the internet, not sure who to credit but...

So, you know how everyone thinks that the Top is his totem, but in the beginning he mentions that it’s actually Mal’s? Well, you see, if it’s not his totem, then it’s not going to properly work for him. Cobb’s totem is his WEDDING RING. Whenever he’s dreaming, he has a wedding ring on because, as he says, in his dreams, they’re still together. In reality, he’s not wearing a ring. During the last scene of the movie? He’s not wearing a ring. BAM, REALITY.

If you are looking for fanfiction, there is none here. You should go join the community faintyoungsun.

This journal is for personal entries that might... not make any sense if you don't know me. Comment here if you want to be added; if we've had some kind of rapport at a convention, on LJ, or something like that, I'll friend you back. If I don't recognize your username, I might not. Please don't be offended; for someone who makes a hobby of writing publicly I'm actually a pretty private person online.


I'm pretty much over using LJ for personal entries, so things are now all fannish in nature. Feel free to friend me at will, it ain't no thang.
