sivaroobini: (Adam Lambert - where there's fire)

Since it's already December 24th here, aka Christmas Eve, I've got a short little Christmas fic as a gift for everyone on my friends-list.

This is dedicated to three very wonderful people: [ profile] eidolon_bird, [ profile] ink_in_a_teacup, and [ profile] seablue_eyes. I'd also like to thank [ profile] sunflower_mynah for betaing it! ♥

Featuring my RP character [ profile] lordofsin aka Belial, Crown of Satan and Archdemon of Lust and Sloth. Lucifer here is based on the first Lucifer I played with, [ profile] grace_descends, who was influenced by the Lucifer comics; he still ruled Hell, but he also owned the Lux club.

Winter in Los Angeles is quite cool... )

[Error: unknown template qotd]
I was JUST talking about this on Facebook the other night. XD There's a fairly long list of candidates, but I think the best one would be...

Adam Lambert's If I Had You.

Aside from the fact that the song itself (like most of Adam's songs) and the music video are very cheerful, I tend to associate senses and sensations with other things, if that makes sense. Things I was doing when experiencing a song or a movie or book or food dish, usually for the first time. Like, when rereading Trudi Canavan's The Novice, I remember the taste of Walker's butter shortbread cookies because that was what I was eating while reading it for the first time. Or when I look at Ramses: The Lady of Abu Simbel (fourth book in the Ramses series) I remember hiding in the bathroom (my exams were nearing but I really wanted to finish it!) and crying my eyes out at the end when Nefertari died. And I haven't watched The Lion King since October 15th 2007 because I had been watching it when my dog Rusty died that day.

The amazing memory I associate with 'If I Had You'. )

The other night I'd had a bad day at work and was going home and it was dark and I paused to pet a friendly stray cat at the foot of our block, with Adam Lambert playing on my iPod. If I Had You started playing and I remembered that joyous feeling from last year, and laughed at the cat's evident enjoyment of the way I was scratching beneath her chin. By the time I stepped into the elevator, I was in a MUCH better mood. So yes, I realise Adam Lambert isn't everyone's cup of tea and neither is If I Had You, but it is a song that always makes me happy when I listen to it.

sivaroobini: (Crowley inner turmoil)

Aargh. My A Levels were finished at the end of last November and I have a break until university starts much later this year. I'd been looking forward to this period SO MUCH last year, and planning what I'd do kept me going.

Now the months stretch ahead of me and I have so many things to do but just can't bring myself to finish them. Would the word ennui be appropriate? There are times when I just walk around the house, unable to motivate myself to finish any of my current projects or start a new one. None of them seem to appeal to me; sometimes they do but I don't feel like doing them anyway. When I'm on the computer, instead of writing or doing anything productive, I spend hours faffing about on Facebook or reading (in some cases, rereading) fanfiction.

Maybe a list will help. Things that are in progress will be italicised, things I've completed will be struck off.

Reading )

Movies/TV )

Music )

Writing/role-play )

Craft Projects )

Miscellaneous )

*stares at list* This is going to end up like that post-O Level list of mine, isn't it? Lakshmi and I wrote up a nice long list and we only did a few things on it. Sigh.
