I am rereading 'The Door in the Air and other stories' by Margaret Mahy and I an quite tickled by some of the themes running through the stories. Especially how they can relate to my fandoms.

Fantastically gay dancers like Brighton are rather awesome.
Wizards need their dreams to prevent them getting lost in their magic.

Then the last story, The Magician in the Tower, that reminds me so much of HOLiC, with a door only opened to a few and those who do walk through change irrevocably. And magicians must change too and that magician's dreams hold the world together.

There has always been a magician in the tower and there always will be.

1. Post about something that made you happy today, even if it’s just a small thing.
2. Do this every day for a week without fail.
3. Tag 8 of your friends to do the same.

What Made Me Happy Today: A comment conversation with [livejournal.com profile] fae_elric about Torchwood.
Reading Sarah Monette's LJ and the various questions she's answered about Melusine etc.
"Shut up and eat your damn turnip!"
And the multitude of quotes from people at school today, including:
I like that idea. The universe has a very slow heartbeat that lasts billions of years.- Rhiannon

Everything is a type of rock when it comes down to it. - Rhiannon

It sounds like usual shipping charges apply. - Stuart (our teacher), on an HP fic being discussed over the Centaurus table.

C: (to Rhiannon) Are you diurnal?
R: Eh?
S: Do you have two urns?
C: It's the opposite of nocturnal.
S: Which means you have no urns. - me, Rhiannon and Stuart

Vermillion Lies' YouTube profile: Sisters play toy piano, accordion, guitar, BBQ grill, gas can, typewriter, lobsters, slide whistle, heating vent.....

That is just the most amazing assortment of instruments ever.

"For the record, if I don't get around to writing a sequel to something while I'm alive, I'd very much rather that nobody else does it once I'm dead. It should exist in your head or in Lucien's library, or in fanfic. But that's me, and not every author feels the same way."

Neil Gaiman, I love you so very much~

Except for the fact I am terribly irritated when I check a book out of Lucien's library and can't remember what it's about.
grassangel: (WIN!)

He is one of the writers I adore most. Mindscrewage and all.
But he's got cool quotes as well. *squees*

You get ideas from daydreaming. You get ideas from being bored. You get ideas all the time. The only difference between writers and other people is we notice when we're doing it. 

That's one of them.

We are small but we are many, we are many we are small; we were here before you rose, we will be here when you fall.

And another, but this time from Coraline, you know, the one that's being turned into a movie. (And I posted about.)


Someday, I'll take one of his quotes, or maybe one of Terry Pratchett's, and turn it into a fantastic fic.
Because those are just great.
