quinnavyre: (Ever After Just Breathe)
There are five principles I live my life by. (Not in this order. :P)

1. You can never have too many peas. (Depending on what you're making, of course.)

2. Never leave the house without your keys and your iPod (you never know when you'll need music).

3. Quoting is always fun, even if you're the only one that gets it. (It's awesome when people DO get it; the rest of the time, the weird looks tend to make up for it.)

4. Always be accepting of other people; you never know how you might come across to others, so you might need to hope that they'll accept you in return. (But really I like to be accepting regardless. Except in regards to absolute bitches, or haters - I can't like them.)

5. Always try to be hopeful, no matter what. Solen says it best: "Perhaps there are times when it seems there is no alternative to surrender, but while we breathe, there is hope." (Darksong)

And while I'm at it:
"We have to have hope. It is the least we can do." (Elspeth, Ashling, 314-5)

"It's only hopeless when we've given up hope." (Elspeth, Ashling, 315)

"I am a fool to hope, I know, but that is one of the few saving graces of human beings." (William, Scatterlings, 43)

Also, I thought this was relevant, given I haven't posted in so long:

This is my final Obernewtyn character journal entry - at least for the time being! :P I will eventually post them on ff.net - I even started to post the first one, then I'm not sure quite what happened... This one is Miky's entry, from during The Keeping Place.

Dear Diary,

It has been several days since Angina was injured by the soldierguards. Although the healers assure me that he has passed the crisis point, I cannot see any change. He has not yet woken, as his body still heals its hurts. I have been sitting with him and using all my empathy to bind him to life. The healers are also spending much time with him. The futuretellers have been monitoring his condition, but they do not say much – they never do. Though Dell has brought me chocca a few times, and tries to reassure me, in her own way. It is kind of her.

Dameon spends much of his time watching over my brother - though "watching" may not be the ideal word. Regardless, he often sits with him, and keeps him company, and myself as well. We do not speak much, but his presence is a comforting one, and sometimes I find myself bathed in his empathised patience and hope.

Hannay and Freya have both been very kind, and have visited both Angina and myself many times. I am more than grateful for the journey to Sador, as it has given me such good friends as these. I find Hannay especially is always willing to bring me some food or chocca, to talk to me and keep me company – even to sit silent with me if he can sense I do not feel like talking.

I hope I shall always have such friends.

Love,
Miky

Well, I got tagged by Jess with the fictional characters meme, so here goes... =D

List ten fictional characters you would absolutely have a date with (in no particular order) and tag five people to do the same.
(And yes, I am also not saying sex ... except just then. =P)

1. Solen – Legendsong Trilogy
2. Booth – Bones
3. Darragh – Sevenwaters Trilogy
4. Fian – Obernewtyn
5. George – Tamora Pierce’s Tortall books
6. Edward Cullen – Twilight series
7. Harrison
Alyzon Whitestarr
8. Ned – Pushing Daisies
9. Westley – The Princess Bride
10. Eric Gotts
Wonderfalls

I was trying to pick my favourites who hadn't been picked yet and most of them hadn't, so that was good! =D I just noticed though that practically all of them are the male lead... Oh well. =P And it was hard picking just one from the Sevenwaters Trilogy, but I didn't want to seem greedy! =P

I tag anyone who hasn't done it yet as well... *looks shifty*

Hello

Hi! I decided to join LJ as a way of keeping in touch with friends, although I'm not sure how much I'll be posting! I'll try to post somewhat regularly... I'll see how it goes. =) Either way, my name's Leah. I live in Victoria, Australia, and I love reading, writing, and drawing. My favourite authors are Isobelle Carmody, Melina Marchetta, and Juliet Marillier (for her Sevenwaters trilogy). =)

I also joined so I could view my friends' avatars at the icon journal Drowning Ducks. =) My avvie is by Jess, from Drowning Ducks. I couldn't resist it! =) I love the latest seasons of Doctor Who, and I also love the tv show Bones!

My theme is Purple, by Louise, from the Featured themes.

I guess that's it for the moment. Hopefully I'll be back sometime soon... =)

~ Leah
