This week is going to be murder on me, I know already. But after this major project is done at work, I can get a bit time off and that shall be sweet indeed. Would be nice to have time for fannish activities and all that jazz.

In other news:
Europe is still suffering effects of Iceland's volcano.

But here in Norway, air space has opened again for now. So dear Iceland, don't you let Katla blow now as well and make it even worse, mmkay?

How heartbreaking is this story?

And that is just one reason I am proud my little country made marriage gender neutral. Because two men who loved each other for that long deserves other people honouring their commitment too, dammit.

Bolivians want the world to compensate them for melting glaciers.

Which does create the interesting question - if you cause harm far away indirectly, should you, and if so how, be held to account? Not to mention, many people would argue the harm is more nature's fault than humanity's, but that debate is still ongoing.

To finish on a cheerier note, a meme I nicked from my flist: Pick 15 of your ships and write down a quote for each of them. Let your flist guess. Looking them up on IMDb or Google is cheating.

[X]: I can't see you as a blonde.
[Y]: You'd be surprised.

[X]: You were a little girl five minutes ago!
[Y]: You're worse than my aunt.
[X]: I'm [X]; I'm worse than everyone's aunt... And that is not how I'm introducing myself.

Eleven and Amy, guessed by [personal profile] glinda

[X]: This does kinda put me in the 'Lancelot trying to persuade Guinevere' position.
[Y]: Boy, you did not just compare yourself to Lancelot.
[X]: Yeah well, the only other metaphor I had involved protons and neutrons, and believe me, under the circumstances I went with the stronger choice.

[X]: Well, life is short. Dating's complicated. This makes it much simpler, doesn't it?
[Y]: It's not supposed to be simple. Complicated is the whole point.

[X]: "Thank you" seems poor and inadequate. I don't know how much this cost you personally, and I suspect I never will. But I want you to know that seeing your face at that moment was probably the single finest moment in my life.
[Y]: It seems that this is the only home we have left. How could I abandon, as you say, my partner?

[X]: Really though, [Y]. Tell me. Who are you?
[Y]: Do you know like we were saying, about the earth revolving? It's like when you're a kid, the first time they tell you that the world is turning and you just can't quite believe it 'cause everything looks like it's standing still. I can feel it - the turn of the earth. The ground beneath our feet is spinning at a thousand miles an hour. The entire planet is hurtling around the sun at sixty seven thousand miles an hour. And I can feel it. We're falling through space, you and me, clinging to the skin of this tiny little world. And, if we let go... That's who I am. Now forget me, [X]. Go home.

Doctor and Rose, guessed by [personal profile] glinda

[X]: You've never paid for sex?
[Y]: I have not. I find the whole idea very... bleak.
[X]: Really? How come?
[Y]: Sex should provide the opportunity for human connection, but paid sex does the opposite of that. To me, sex without love is... pointless. It makes you sad.
[X]: Well, I'm pretty sure I don't make you sad.
[Y]: No. You make me happy.

Grissom and Sara, guessed by [personal profile] glinda

[X]: There was a time when I pitied your sadness. But now, even if you had no sorrow at all, nor fear, and you were the blessed Queen of [z], I would still love you. [Y], do you not love me?

[X]: I don't think you can know. I mean, how many different lives would we be leading if we made different choices. We... We don't know.
[Y]: What if there was only one choice and all the other ones were wrong? And there were signs along the way to pay attention to.
[X]: Mmm. And all the... choices would then lead to this very moment. One wrong turn, and... we wouldn't be sitting here together. Well, that says a lot. That says a lot, a lot, a lot. That's probably more than we should be getting into at this late hour.

[X]: I will be back.
[Y]: You better be! I'll be monitoring your frequency.

[X]: Today someone at prosecutors told my ex that I was screwing you.
[Y]: Well... since we're copping the blame we might as well get stuck into it.
[X]: Yeah why not? Something tasteful and romantic eh? Your desk or mine?
[Y]: Well, I reckon I could do it from here.

[X]: How did you know that paper was ancient Arabic?
[Y]: Benefits of a Liberal Arts education.
[X]: I suppose that makes you an expert on everything?
[Y]: Of course! Uh, except women.

[X]: Kiss me. That wasn't an order. I just want to kiss my husband.
[Y]: In front of everyone? You've always been so shy about that.
[X]: They're too busy to see anything. Kiss me, or I'll think you're the one who's..

[X]: You move me, [Y9. I have never heard you speak like this before. Almost you make me regret that I have not seen these caves. Come! Let us make this bargain -- if we both return safe out of the perils that await us, we will journey for a while together.
Legolas and Gimli, guessed by [personal profile] ordinarygirl

[X]: I want you to know that disobeying your orders was one of the most difficult things I've ever had to do.
[Y]: I understand. And I respect the decision you made, even though I disagree with it. What's important is that in the end we got through this. Together. I don't ever want that to change.

Well, I knew 2 and 6 pretty easy, but that's already been guessed. ^^

14. Legolas and Gimli.

As for the rest... we don't actually have much in the way of canon overlap, I don't think.

Though now I have the random urge to go re-read the FFU...

Heh, well, I don't think I've encountered many of the canons outside of DW and LotR, at least beyond a single episode or so, so it's very difficult for me to actually go "Oh, I recognize that!" because... I really don't. XD
