"You cut up a thing that’s alive and beautiful to find out how it’s alive and why it’s beautiful, and before you know it, it’s neither of those things, and you’re standing there with blood on your face and tears in your sight and only the terrible ache of guilt to show for it."
—Clive Barker

Just finished writing up notes about S.T. Coleridge and his friendship/lifelong partnership with Wordsworth and I stopped in the middle of writing notes because it was just sounding like Pete/Patrick to me. Or Pete/Mikey or Pete/Ryan at some points.

And now I want to write the fic. Because, oh my god, it is just...it's them. They bought houses beside each other and lived there their entire lives and would go for walks in the country discussing ideas for hours and had fights constantly but always resolved them and as;dka;dkasda THEIR RELATIONSHIP! And Coleridge (who is Pete) was ~tortured~ and ~talented~ and constantly singing the praises of Wordsworth as an artist and ~go into lots of trouble regarding the Revolution~ (the French one that is).

Here, have some snippets from my Coleridge notes:

"the collaberative effort between these two, of their different temperments and the works that were produced through the fusion of both their world views and styles changed poetry."

"Coleridge believed Wordsworth had the ability to produce a philosophical poem that would "discover truth by intuition" and this troubled Wordsworth. The pressure of this task ended up in him writing 'The Prelude' which acted like a conversation between the two across their lives until 1850 when Wordsworth died (Coleridge had died 15 years previous)"

"Wordsworth was a Child of the Enlightenment with a lingering rationale and materialistic streak whereas Coleridge was fraught, inspired by the Gothic with a focus on the supernatural and the spirit that was beyond Nature. He was a phenominal conversationalist. When speaking upon topics Hazlitt remarked it was like "he could glide along ice" or that he "floated on air".

"Whereas Wordsworth was antropological and Enlightened, Coleridge was cursed and focused on the world beyond....[regarding the similarities in 'Lyrical Ballads'] even though the tones were wholly different, both utilised the same key themes; the dangers of cutting oneself off from nature, the imprisonment of self and the dangers of unsocialabilty, as well as warnings about loneliness and the sins of Pride."

sdfsk;dlfks;flksd; SEE???

Is 'converting' to Atheism really the right term? Writing some notes and it just...feels like it doesn't fit properly into the line.

Updating [livejournal.com profile] icarusishappy in between lectures write ups with old fic from here so apologises for the raping of f-lists probably going on.

Am working tonight and more-than-likely doing my Training Crew exam tonight which will
1) finally legalise ALL MY POWER over the new-starts, even though no one really doubts it
2) give me a pay increase
3) make me feel like I've actually accomplished something in my 2-and-a-half years killing myself at work.

This, of course, is subject to me actually passing the exam but I've got hope. Sort of. Um...next question!

SHIT THE POTATOES - it's okay folks, i didn't destroy them. Me for the win! \o/

why does it always seem that even if i get up 3 hours before i have to head to work, i still manage to not be dressed or even remotely ready 40 minutes before i have to leave? fail.

THE ZOMBIE!VAMPIRE!BANDOM!AU has hit 3000 words due to me fucking about with bitch!vampire!MatsuJun last night. good times, great days. however there is still a distinct lack of plotline. Will be online after work tonight so anyone who LOVES ME TONS AND WANTS INVOLVED IN THE FIC, please to be going onto MSN or AIM tonight. I should be home about 12 or 1am? So you have 10 hours to think and desire and crave zombie!bandom ideas and then throw them at me. :DD

[livejournal.com profile] therenodaemis - MY CONNOISSEUR DARLING - lay your zombie knowledge upon me! ♥

OK. 20 minutes to get dressed. I can manage that. Although I also have to eat and clean before I leave. Um...maybe not.

klena: (I'd die in your arms)
i need a good zombie icon - i swear, i seem to have spent most of the last few weeks talking about zombies. ♥ zombies

work is still sucky and exhausting and tiring and does not seem to ever let up but money is money. bah

planning to write more of zombie!bandom!fic tonight - please feel free to throw ideas at me or plotlines or anything. honestly, anything. last night i wrote another 1000 words of Gabe being Gabe and Ryland not being Ryland anymore. Or, well, breathing too.

There needs to be a plotline. Just need to find one.

I've lost my words again. Which is a good thing because then I would forget my purpose for writing this entry. It's, once again, for the Rising Stars of Manga competition. And I'm looking for answers:

1. What do you imagine the apolcalypse to be like? Or is there some book or manga or movie that has laid it out like you thought?

2. Does anyone have any images of Gabriel from Constantine? (the movie, not the graphic novel)

3. The group of kids experiencing the apocalypse - uniform or non?

4. I was thinking of a mixed group of around 7 or 8 people (bear in mind, some will die). Is that too much?

5. I need names! For anything like streets or the people or teachers or the school. Anything would be appreciated and worked in some way (that goes for all suggestions too!)

That's about it. I'm tired, even though I got up at 2 today. However, the stomach bug is clearly up. Slightly.

Doesn't matter really.

OK. When you see this, paste some Shakespeare in your journal
No, no, no, no! Come, let's away to prison;
We two alone will sing like birds i'th'cage:
When thou dost ask me blessing, I'll kneel down,
And ask of thee forgiveness: so we'll live,
And pray, and sing, and tell old tales, and laugh
At gilded butterflies and hear poor rogues
Talk of court news; and we'll talk with them too,
Who loses and who wins; who's in, who's out:
And take upon's the mystery of things,
As if we were God's spies: and we'll wear out
In a wall'd prison, packs and sects of great ones
That ebb and flow by the moon.
King Lear, Lear speaking, Act V, Scene III

And I've seen the poetry meme twice, so two poems.

(tragic one first)
Mid-term Break - Seamus Heaney )

And now, a love poem. In a way. [livejournal.com profile] trowicia, this is practically Wolfstar!

Have I mentioned lately that I fucking LOVE Chris Cornell's voice. It's utter sex. *Drools*

This post isn't going to feature anything remotely interesting. I'm just making a list of my next few days and things I need to remember.

Thursday going to Speedy's with Efa for pub quiz? Might need to pick up more milk. Also mail the bills for mum. **Need to pay bills first. Look at getting more money out. Taxi home? Need to do most of the major house-cleaning today. Text June with bus times for Saturday.

Friday Sleepover day. Stock up on junk. ??Are we getting movies out? Check what times everyone's getting down at. Should be around 6? 7? Going to Chinese. Emperor almost definite. Need to book? Is Friday night. Walk home? Or taxi? Get money out for Ruth's presents, possible taxi to Ruth's and Chinese.

Saturday Leave June down to bus station. Probably Jules and Lillybet too. Might have breakfast down the street. Pick up Half-Blood Prince. Give to Matthew to hold until I re-read the other books. Tidy up after sleepover. Last wash will be going to today or else there will be ironing to do on Monday. ??Pick up a present or two for Ruth. What do you get for someone going to Alaska?

Sunday Last minute cleaning. Clean the cars if it's a good day. Book taxi to go up to Ruth's leaving barbecue if Jenni isn't going. Fuck it, will need to get more money out on Friday then. Come home. Do any last minute ironing. Check house in order.

Monday. D-Day. Parents home. Haven't a fucking clue when. Need to check that out. Possibly make a ghetto quick banner. Keep away from books until they're home.

OK. That's the next few days sorted.

Random notes:

1) Fuck it, Aimee Mann was playing down in Dublin Monday and Tuesday. Need to keep on the gig circuit.

2) Look up Tennant's Festival ticket prices.

3) Dude, look up what Coldplay songs where playing up the Saul Road. 3, 4 and 5 from Parachutes. Remus/Sirius angst vibes abound.

4) Remus/James/Sirius. Hogwarts.

5) That Harry/Draco one. "And what, Potter? You come back here and expect a post-war fuck? Is that it?"

6) Harry/Draco - Sunlight. Draco POV

7) Veil. 3 Sirius'. Psychological.

8) Plant those flowers.

9) Ghetto HP summaries.

Composition and research essay - 7 days BITCH!
(Burn CD, go, do it now!)

Donielle, Zal-sis - you both fucking rock my worlds. In the multiple. And even the echoes. I owe you!

*Wails* I wanna write Potter stuff but instead I'm settling for bizarre Harry/Draco pictures. I have a VERY odd imagination, hahahahah

OMG Spiritual Vacuums! And Danny advertises for them! HaHAHAHAHAH, I love him.

To die is to forget you ever lived. To die is to forget you loved, or suffered, or got and lost things you wanted. Tomorrow, you say to yourself, I won't remember anything, won't remember this face, this knee, this old scar, or the hand that wrote all this.
- André Aciman, 'Lavender'

<<<----- DUDE, the fucking PLOT BUNNY's are practically oozing from this. OOOOOOZZZING I SAY!

[Edit] And anyone thinking/praying to deities and/or higher spiritual beings, offer up a thought for my little bro. He's got his German Oral GCSE exam tomorrow *bites nails for him*

If you want a song that'll tear the heart clean out of you, one of those tragical, angsty male voices backed by the band and an entire string section, do I have the song for you!

It's by Bush and it's called "Letting The Cables Sleep". I donate the lyrics. That is all

You in the dark
You in the pain
You on the run
Living a hell
Living your ghost
Living your end
Never seem to get in the place that I belong
Don't wanna lose the time
Lose the time to come

Whatever you say it's alright
Whatever you do it's all good
Whatever you say it's alright
Silence is not the way
We need to talk about it
If heaven is on the way
If heaven is on the way

You in the sea
On a decline
Breaking the waves
Watching the lights go down
Letting the cables sleep

Whatever you say it's alright
Whatever you do it's all good
Whatever you say it's alright
Silence is not the way
We need to talk about it
If heaven is on the way
We'll wrap the world around it
If heaven is on the way
If heaven is on the way

I'm a stranger in this town
I'm a stranger in this town

If heaven is on the way
If heaven is on the way
I'm a stranger in this town
I'm a stranger in this town
