Another Meme. I don't know what else to write :(  
Six Things Meme from rosaxx50

Comment on this post with the words WICKED LOVELY and I will choose six interests from your profile. You will then explain what they mean/why you are interested in them. Post this along with your answers in your own journal so that others can play along.

rosaxx50 gave me:

Luke/Mara (♥)
First of all, so love the fact that this interest was chosen! I was so disheartened that it wasn't plugged enough into LJ for it to be a hyperlinked phrase. 

I've never read any of the novels that introduce Mara and her subsequent relationship with Luke. With the recent hype on JJ Abrams having the green Light on Star Wars Episode VII, I got the urge to check out fics and came across these two in one of the many Han/Leia fics I was reading.

Luke has always come off as a bit of a foil and too naive to be of interest, much. Not when Han Solo was on the scene. ;) But then I read a trilogy of epic fanfics that sold me on Luke and the ship of Mara/Luke: Son of Suns by blank101. Luke is being turned to the Dark Side and Mara is working for Emperor Palpatine. It's gritty, imperfect but satisfying - go read now!

Kaylee Frye
She is the heart of the crew of Serenity. What I like most about her is how sweet she is and then in random moments she'll remind me that she isn't actually that innocent (her innuendos to Simon) but chooses to see the better in life around her as opposed to the negative and drama. I enjoy her practicality.

Jane Austen
A woman before her time. I have to admit, I think I've only read Pride and Prejudice. The rest have been film/TV/web series adaptations. And of course fanfiction :) I just like her characters and the fact that they (or at least the main characters) experience some sort of significant character arc within the story. Plus it's romance. Love romance <3

On a bored day, I downloaded GIMP, went to The Dark Arts, a graphics forum, and started making little creations. You can see them here. They aren't awesome or anything but I'm getting there. It's just fun and one more creative outlet for me.

Hee, Hee. I just put that one there because I was amused it was an interest that apparently a lot of people had. :)

They are how I found LJ and the wonderful comms! They introduced me to fanfiction and started me to the wonderful world of obsessing fangirling! The Doctor, a lonely God, Rose, the girl who changed his life and who stole his hearts. *sigh* what more do I need?

Lol, but "luke/mara" has a lot of links :D I definitely rec Heir to the Empire and Emperor's Shadow (the trilogy where she's introduced, and the duo where they get together). They were some very interesting reads.

Kaylee is so wonderful. And I agree so much with you, she's very not the innocent to Zoe's warrior or Inara's seduction, but chooses to see the bright side of life.

. I have to admit, I think I've only read Pride and Prejudice.
O_O I do hope you get around to reading the others. I enjoyed Persuasion too, in particular.

THE DARK ARTS! That's a name I haven't seen for a while, since the last time I wrote HP fic in fact.

And you know I agree with you on Doctor/Rose of course.

Ooh ok, I will change the interest name :) ok fine, if you rec it I will check it out.

:D so you were on HPFF? I know that it's a long time ago to stick so close to it but you know, it's kind of hard to grow out of.
