Massive Image Post from London. If you want to take a look, may I suggest opening the link in a new window, then going off to make a pot of coffee?

Or tea, as the case may be. ^_^

My Bookshelves and Me

Enter the Hobbits!

Halloween Night. Fancy-dress party. At a bar named Potion. How could I not go?

Potion, or where I was on Halloween Night. To my bitter disappointment, I did not see Snape. Hobbits and I found the bar too smoky, too crowded, and too un-squee for ourselves (no one was in fancy dress), and headed off to Trafalgar Square, where we took the photos you will see after Potion.

This was where we spent our Halloween Night. In Trafalgar Square.

Merry and I. She knows that Truly Madly Deeply exists. *beams at la_muerta. She owns a Harry Potter watch for it being a Harry Potter watch. She uses Apparation in everyday speech. She has a mug with Snape on it! TOO cool.

We are in full possession of our (university) faculties. Temporary Insanity. Or rather, this is what we did when Merry told us that the architect who’d designed the National Gallery was also the man who had designed our university.

The Hobbits in Bree Starbucks. And believe me, it was a cold night. This was our Halloween Night. ^_^ After the chill of Trafalgar Square, a gingerbread latte is unbelievably wonderful. And it must be ranchelle who had me buy dark chocolate.

My Infamous Hallmates

This picture below is Nemo Stealer. Who can pick me up and spin me around. And who, with Obi-Wan, carried me down the hall and put me into a sink, much to my amusement.

Me: "You're strong."

Nemo Stealer: "No. You're just small."

Guy against the radiator is Lucien. Who is Czchechoslovakian. And ranchelle, aingeal_isilme and la_muerta were saying strange things about this picture.

And at last, this is Serry Next Door. (All Rataliens who agree with my assessment, say something!) Who is French. And who, I’ve just discovered (in the midst of one of our historic We Spoke More Than Ten Words To Each Other (Which Did Not Include “The Music Is Too Loud”) Conversations ), is a third-year.

This is the boy who Inadvertently Read What I Was Writing.

My Space!

My room. Um. That is not a Legolas poster. That thing above my bed. Also, I do not have a Legolas file. Or Legolas pens.

I didn’t wear Legolas socks today either.

In my defense I would like to plead that the Elf Fanciers around me have me irretrievably corrupted.

That’s my bed and the board above it.

That’s the view from my window. Just noticed today that the leaves are turning scarlet and orange. Autumn has come to my window!

Sunday Afternoon

There are some things I Do Not Want to Know about my parents. My father’s friend and his family were over in London. My father’s friend took me to his sister’s house for lunch. By way of an introduction to his sister’s husband, he said, “Her father was my flatmate. And my bedmate.”

Me: *dies*

“We shared a bed.”

Me: *crawls under chair*

“We slept in the same bed because we were too poor to afford separate beds.”

Me: *is too far gone* *whimper: Dad?*

My father’s friend’s wife was sitting at the table, and upon hearing this, she turned to him with This Look on her face, and said, “Bed-mate?”

Me: *Help. . .*

I had lunch with a man who slept with my father. . .

I hope my father will understand if, when I speak to him next, I demand, “Why?! Why couldn’t you have slept on the floor?!”

This is my father's friend's little girl.

This is what I saw when I went into the garden.

This is the entrance of the LOTR Exhibition. Much to my regret, could not take pictures in there.

A fellow Singaporean and I doing the whole Gryffindor Thing.

She straightened my hair for me. ^_^

Ratal, you'd agree too.

I've wanted to photograph that place since I saw it!

3rd-Nov-2003 02:51 am (UTC)
great to see you again.... even if it's photos =)
4th-Nov-2003 03:26 pm (UTC)
*hugs* I wish I could see you for real, Professor!
3rd-Nov-2003 03:42 am (UTC)
Nemo fish scares me.

Why are your male dorm mates cute?

What's that I see about Ewan book? Why is it non-slash?
3rd-Nov-2003 09:03 am (UTC)
exactly! why is it all your male dorm-mates are bishies, while we over here do not spot a single one roaming the university/hall corridors after so long? *mutters* should have tried harder to get a scholarship to go to london/wales *mutters*
4th-Nov-2003 03:58 pm (UTC)
I shall take pictures and share them with you!

And may the elusive bishonen at your hall reveal themselves!

*hugs* It's all right, Professor *hugs again* As long as the Snark Goes On, and as long as I will see you again, it will be alright. *smiles*
4th-Nov-2003 03:28 pm (UTC)
Nemo is adorable! *cuddles Nemo and looks at you* You will love him toooooo! *beams*

I have no idea why my hall mates are cute ^_^ They just are! *smiles* Much happiness. But also much conspiracy to get their pictures. ; )

Ewan book is for you! ^_^ It's a biography. With pictures! ; ) I'm sure there is slash if you want to read into it ^_^ Looking at his films, I'd say there should be! ^_^
(Deleted comment)
8th-Nov-2003 03:43 pm (UTC) - *smiles*
*glomps you back with much glee*

*assists you in Bishonen Capturing*

You can borrow mine ^_^

*hugs you* I read that! I fully support it! *smiles* The world needs more gorgeousness! ; ) And where there's a want, it must be attended to! ; )

Also Centerworld: Your writing. COOL. As is your writing on your LJ. ^_^
3rd-Nov-2003 08:13 am (UTC)
*LOLs at the convo with your father's friend* Lots of photos! Whee! Now we get to see how your life is like and the faces of your hallmates. Boy Who Inadvertently Saw Slash looks young, as Faol commented. Serry-Next-Door does indeed have sort of a Serry-ish feel, I'm reluctant to admit (being the Real Serry Who Doesn't LOOK Like Serry)

Looks like the hobbits had fun! ^O^ And I wonder how you're going to lug all those extra books back here...oh, and that chicken still looks like a lemon however I see it, even to having a greenish tip.

And just because...

*niko niko*
8th-Nov-2003 03:49 pm (UTC)
*hugs you and smiles*

*beams endlessly* Serry the First says that Serry Next Door looks like Serry! Now that's what I call an authentic stamp of approval!

Do not care if you do not look like Serry. You created him, and that's what matters. And we love you all the same. *hugs* Whatever you look like!

How I'm going to get all those books back? With much difficulty XDDD And there's going to be more by the time I'm done! ; ) I buy at least two books every week. ; ) When I'm an adult, my house will be full of books.

It's a chick... *giggles at you* And that's shadow! Not green!

*impulsively hugs you*
3rd-Nov-2003 04:39 pm (UTC)
dude, funky room.
8th-Nov-2003 03:50 pm (UTC)
*smiles* Funky LJ layout you have! ; ) And funky icon, too.

Here's hoping your reading week went well! ; ) And that you're feeling fine?

You can come see my room if you'd like! ; ) It's not too far a walk from yours! ^_^

Reading week is almost over. *grief* And I have... Not done my reading.

Bring on the DOOM.
8th-Nov-2003 08:33 pm (UTC)
Reading week is over.

I haven't done the essay to be handed in on monday, the one for tues, the seminars and tutorial readings. And for some reason I fell asleep in some girl's room upstairs before waking up at 4am and going back to my room o___0

How did you manage to use a proxy type thing to post images from fateback? Funky.

DOOM indeed.
3rd-Nov-2003 04:50 pm (UTC)
Wahhhh *runs off to get a ticket to drop by your dorm* Will err, "borrow" the Legolas poster >_>

Nice pics! XD *glomps you and your Nemo pillow*
8th-Nov-2003 03:52 pm (UTC)
*hugs you* Drop by! I'll drag you around London! *beams* London is gorgeous! You'd love the shops! And the museums! Especially the one with the LOTR exhibition!

*hugs you* I'll get you that poster! Do you want one?

*glomps you too* Come over and you can cuddle Nemo! *beams* Will welcome you with much fin-waving! ; )

Adorable icon you have! ^_^
8th-Nov-2003 07:11 pm (UTC)
Lol, thanks about the icon ;)

And nah, I'll pass on the Legolas poster...will be willing to take lil Nemo off your hands though! XD *hides*

Self wants to go to London! Lalala, yess, Especially the LOTR exhibition...too bad no pictures can be taken inside it though ;p

*runs around madly*
3rd-Nov-2003 09:12 pm (UTC)

Good to see you have Robin Hobb's stuff as slash XD
8th-Nov-2003 03:54 pm (UTC)
*beams* You will have the book! *smiles* Can't wait to see you! *cannot stop smiling* Can I inflict more slash fantasy on you? ^_^

Robin Hobb's work is so slashy! ; ) Everything Fitz/Fool is deeply, deeply slashy, and I love it for that!
8th-Nov-2003 05:14 pm (UTC)
More slash fantasy you say???? Where???!?!?!?!?!?
8th-Nov-2003 06:38 pm (UTC)
The Nightrunner Series, by Lynn Flewelling, which I've already inflicted on your Padawan. David Feintuch's "The Still". "Ill Met By Moonlight", by Sarah A. Hoyt. "Moth to A Flame", by Sarah Ash, which I cannot find. And of course. Mercedes Lackey! XDDDD

I'm sure there are more books out there. Just waiting for me to discover them... ^_________________^
9th-Nov-2003 12:47 am (UTC)
... It figures that when I try to think of the Slashy Fantasy I read, my mind goes blank about the author's name. >_>

*checks* Ah. Ellen Kushner. She wrote The Fall of Kings (which I haven't read), and... something else I read but can't remember now. Brain fried by panic, sorry.

She's good though. =) Lovely prose. (check for her on Amazon?)
3rd-Nov-2003 09:13 pm (UTC)
You look so cute! It's great to see so many pictures of you and the places you go. ^_____^
8th-Nov-2003 03:56 pm (UTC)
*blushes* And you're beautiful.

I thought it was only fair that you got to see pictures of me, after we get to see so many pictures of you ^_^ And you're lovely as an elf! ; ) Come to think of it - Just lovely. ^_^

; ) I got so much fun out of seeing the pictures you took that I had to give you something in return! *hugs you*
8th-Nov-2003 06:43 pm (UTC)
*blushes bright bright red* Awww, thank you so much.

Promise you'll take lots more photos. It looks like you're having the most amazing time, really loving it. ^^ It's wonderful to see you looking so happy!
4th-Nov-2003 01:45 am (UTC)
*hugs you and doesn't let go* ^____^

It was so good to talk to you on MSN yesterday, and it's so lovely to see you, even if only through photos. As wonderful as the Net and LJ is for communicating, it doesn't come close to actually being able to see someone in person; not by a long shot. *counts down the days till you and nescienx return*

So many photos! ^_____^ *grin* Were you wearing your Arwen outfit on Halloween? heh, spent mine (supposedly) studying for a test... :P Nice to see the London Hobbits! ^_^ *waves even though they can't see* And Serry-next-door is SO Serry... Your father's friend's daughter is adorable! *laughs at the moving pic* The convo was, unfortunately Very Sweatdrop Inducing. *pats you consolingly* i love the Niko Niko sushi sign! Am so amused ^o^

*hugs you again, because... well, i don't need a reason, do i? XD*

4th-Nov-2003 02:21 am (UTC)
speaking of moving pics, last night I dreamt about Chris showing us Rataliens moving photos - like wizarding photos ^^
8th-Nov-2003 04:18 pm (UTC)
*stunned* *beams at the Professor* You excel in Divination! *worships* I took videos! Of where I was! So you are right, Professor! Your dream will come true! You will be able to see moving pictures, just like wizarding photos! I have:

1. Night on the Thames
Merry's Review: "This looks like a Come to London advertisement. With the music and all."

2. Nemo Stealer and Nemo

3. Obi-Wan and Boy Who Inadvertently Saw Slash Talking

4. The Hobbits at Trafalgar Square

5. The Charge of the Sheep Brigade!

*hugs my Professor wildly* Even thousands of miles away, Professor, you can read me as if I were right in front of you. ^_^
8th-Nov-2003 04:04 pm (UTC)
I can't wait til Ratal meets again! *hugs you too* I've missed all of you!

*hugs you too and refuses to let go as well*

Sometimes on MSN I can see in my mind the expression on your face when you say certain things, and I am seized with this irresistible urge to smile! *beams* Even so far away, you can give me so much! ^_^

Yes, I was wearing the Arwen outfit on Halloween! *beams* It was rather cold in Trafalgar with only the Arwen outfit on, though! XD

*comforts* The evilness of tests! Come December! And away they go! And we will return! *hugs*

*waves back at you for the Hobbits, who would wave back if they could* ^_^ Will put up more pictures! ; )

*agrees with much delight* Even Serry's creator thinks Serry Next Door looks like Serry! I wish Ratal could see with my eyes! He's even more Serry-esque when you see him in person! And when he smiles! And when he laughs! ^_^

I was amused by the Niko Niko sign too! ; ) It must be Ratal reaching out to London, and telling me not to forget! As if I could! *hugs you tight*

My father's friend's daughter is immensely adorable! ; ) And she's a very bubbly child, too! ; )

Extremely Sweatdrop Inducing convo. I think my father's friend's wife felt the same way too. Glad that I was not alone.

No, you don't need a reason to hug me! *hugs you and cannot stop smiling* I miss you. And I can't wait for the day when I will be able to see you again!
5th-Nov-2003 08:55 am (UTC)

*squees in front of the computer, looking at all the cute guys all your photos!*


London is beautiful!! take more photos okay?

Btw I think Lucien looks really cute. and Serry-guy too. *swoons*

You were wearing your Arwen dress! Were you all dancing in front of wherever you were or what? 0.o

glad you're having so much fun and can't wait for you to be back!! =)

and yes take more photos!! =)
8th-Nov-2003 04:27 pm (UTC)
*hugs you gleefully* The guys are cute! So squee on! *hugs you*

I will! I'll take more photos and put them up! *beams*

YES! Lucien and Serry are completely gorgeous!

*sly sideways look* Did anyone notice how they're L and S? And I happen to be living in between both their rooms? XDDDDDD

Yes, Arwen dress! It was Halloween! ; ) We're making the sign for UCL because the architect who designed the building we were in front of - the National Gallery - also designed my university! ^_^

I can't wait to be home and to be with all of you again! *hugs*
5th-Nov-2003 05:17 pm (UTC)
Is it just me or do your bookshelves look slightly saggy? Here's to hoping they don't fall on you! =)

I agree, your dorm-mates look cute.

... Your father lived in more innocent times than we do? XD
8th-Nov-2003 05:13 pm (UTC)
I think it's my photo-taking skills, or lack of. XD I seem to have taken the picture at an angle that makes the shelves look as if they are falling off.

*looks at shelves again* Hey... Come to think of it... They... Do look as if they're tilting!

Have bought Patricia McKillip's A Winter Rose! Will lend it to you when I get back! *smiles* Am so glad you're someone who likes her! *hugs*

*beams* Dorm Mates worthy of fangirling! ; )

Your father lived in more innocent times than we do? XD

This is why I need your sanity in my life! To keep me going over the Edge of Slash! Or the Slash Precipice! XD

9th-Nov-2003 12:52 am (UTC)
May they not fall on you. Bookshelves falling on Chris not a good thing, especially when they look HEAVY. *eyes them* XD

And parents and slash is... a very... HIGH precipice. You may not come back alive if you fall off. XD XD XD I do my best to keep you back! XD
