Old meme - The Phantom Librarian
Spewing out too many words since November 2003
Old meme
I'm searching through my calendar to try and find that fic with young Godric and Salazar. Finding loads of stuff I'd forgotten, though no joy yet on the Founders story!

Anyway, I found a meme from last April that amused me. It was taking quotes from stories without giving their titles, and just giving a link to the stories (apparently to see if the quote was interesting enough to make people want to read them).

The Star Wars edition
The Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings edition


And, btw, Chapter 38 of Shifts ("The Last Interlude") just went up at SQ. I think I tweaked an "oldest" to an "eldest," made some braids into plaits (because I forgot that Britpick in the HB version), and made it clearer that Fleur was getting the French version of the Daily Prophet by tapping it with her wand not because that's common magic, but because there's a French edition written and a Francophone can switch the English version to it without much difficulty.

somewhat off-topic....

I think I remember this. I think that was what introduced me to your SW fic, which I adore.

Going back to a post you made the other day...

I'm torn over whether or not I want to see your thoughts (should you ever recover them) on the Zahn trilogy. I'd seen and enjoyed the movies a few times already, but it wasn't until my dad brought Dark Force Rising home from the library when I was 13 and the Zahn SW books were brand-new that I really "got into" SW. After I'd read them, I checked out and read the novelizations of the classic SW movies.
I checked the Zahn books out from the library often enough to decide that I ought to buy them. I can't say the same for any of the other EU books. I read a number of them and didn't much care for what they did with the characterizations. Well, except for Stackpole's I, Jedi, which I thought did a tolerable job of attempting to redeem-by-alternate-POV the awfulness of the Kevin Anderson Jedi Academy trilogy. From having flipped through the NJO stuff idly in the bookstore, I have no desire to read it. Ick.
I was thirteen, so yes, I was a Luke/Mara shipper. It's probably the first conscious "shipping" I ever did. I was so relieved when Spectre of the Past and Vision of the Future came out and they finally got together.

I always enjoy and generally agree with your opinions on Harry Potter. Likewise, I have enjoyed and generally agreed with your thoughts concerning Star Wars. So on the one hand I would like to see what you had to say about the Zahn trilogy, because I'm sure it would be full of all your usual insight, but on the other hand, I'm rather fond of those books and don't want to lose my enjoyment of them.... :\
