TVTropes is a bottomless pit that sucks you into its depths and tries to drag you back in whenever you attempt to leave it.

But very occasionally it gives you something back. A new fandom to read or watch, a good fic to enjoy, a game that you might not otherwise have heard of... and music.

Thanks to TVTropes I found the soundtrack to Traitor General - a Warhammer 40K Gaunt's Ghost book by Dan Abnett. Yes, an actual soundtrack to a book.

And I'm loving it. It's great music to listen to. Especially while browsing TVTropes.

EDIT: Dug up a link to tracks 6 - There are No Miracles (Only Men) - and 11 - Rengarth's Lament - on YouTube.

Step 1: Put your MP3 player on random.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 20 songs that play.
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!

1) I wanna be the very best, like no one ever was
2) There's no time for us, there's no place for us
3) I can dim the lights and sing you songs full of sad things
4) I am what I am, I am my own special creation

5) Hold a halo round the world
6) An old cowpoke went riding out one dark and windy day
7) She's got a smile that it seems to me reminds me of childhood memories
8) Nothing is so good it lasts eternally

9) Kawaita kaze ni tadayoi nagara oto mo tatezu ni chikazukeba
10) Turn the spotlights on the people
11) Prison gates won't open up for me
12) Into the abyss I'll fall - the eye of Horus
13) Are you lost in your lies?
14) Some boys kiss me
15) They fall in line one at a time

16) Let me apologise to begin with
17) No one else will help us to get through
18) Yeah here we go for the hundredth time
19) How can I repay you brother mine?
20) Once upon a time, not so long ago

What is this? It's a way for you to express your opinions on characters, plot twists, chapters and episodes in a fun way, using sparkletext. Put a short sparkletext message in your comment, with an optional non-sparkly explanation if you feel it's necessary.

Please, be nice about it. No flaming, bashing, homophobia, heterophobia or shipping wars allowed. Splash out, have fun and let the sparkles fly.

Posting it here initially. If enough people think it's decent/acceptable, I might move it over to my fic journal and cross-post it.

All perfectly clean. Nothing graphic here.

There's a bit more non-action talking bit in this ep. As usual, I have no idea what is going on at this point, since I don't understand Japanese and the subs aren't out yet.

Reporting in... )

Meanwhile elsewhere... )

More fighting occurs after the break. )

I don't want this to be true! Damnit, why would a character who is so law-abiding do something like THAT! Damn, damn, damn...

- Open your music program of choice and put it on shuffle.
- For each question, hit the next song and put down the song title.
- No matter how stupid it is, you must go with the first song that pops up, no exceptions!

1. Some days I just feel like:
"Everyday Affairs" (Okay, not too bad. There are some things I do everyday.)

2. Right now I am thinking:
"Two Out Of Three Ain't Bad" (Really I'm wondering why my Realplayer is fucking titles and artists up again.)

3. My favorite type of day is:
"Rosa Rubicundidior, Lilio Candidior" (Um... "Red Offence, White Defence"... Okay..)

4. Nothing beats a good:
"Anguish" (*snort* Given the angst levels in my recent fics, that's strangely appropriate)

5. When stuff confuses me, I just say:
"Amazing Grace" (Just... don't ask.)

6. My view on sex is summed up with this word/phrase:
"Time Warp" (*blinks* LOL! That's exactly what I wish some fanficcers would do!)

7. What should you do with your life?
"Uragiri" (I should betray someone? Or be betrayed, rather, given whose POV this song is from.)

8. I hope my last words are:
"Given Up"

9. Facebook quizzes like this are dumb. I’d rather:
"You Don't Have To Say You Love Me"

10. At my funeral, they’d better be listening to:
"Epilogue" (fitting, I guess, since it'd be the epilogue to my life.)

11. What my friends really think of me:
"Bleach Soul Shout"

12. Some days I just want to scream out:
"The Breaking Of The Fellowship"

13. I love to eat, especially when the food tastes like:
"Ash And Smoke" (sounds like my dad's been cooking again.)

14. I’m not racist, I just think:
"The Saints Are Coming"

15. Lots of these made no sense, but that’s because:
"Desire" (wouldn't Delirium be a more likely culprit?)

16. My music knows me best, that’s why it knows that all I want for Christmas is:
"Let's Get The Party Started"

17. When I laugh a lot of people say I sound like:
"Operation Ground And Pound"

18. My feelings on gay marriage are summed up in this word/phrase:
"Pretty Women" (What?! I DETEST the fanfiction tendency to turn the receiving partner into a simpering woman substitute.)

19. If that last one made no sense to you, then I just have this to say to you:
"Blow Me Away" (no, please don't)

20. My last thought after this little quiz thing is this:
"Helm's Deep."

Well, the chances of me finding a hundred dollars is rare, given that it's not my currency. If I found a hundred quid though.... I'd like to say I'd be honest enough to hand it in, but if it's not in a purse or wallet or anything like that, I'd actually be more likely to keep it. A hundred quid could be useful.

Ichigo is still fighting Zangetsu over in the middle of Seireitei. He's also in trouble... )

Renji managed to regain his shikai once he gathered the resolve to fight. Ichigo never lost his shikai at all. Could it be possible for all Shinigami that have obtained their bankai to use shikai, or are those two just special cases? I have so many questions, so many things I want to see from this arc. I'll just have to be patient, and it's killing me.

This filler arc is pretty damned good. It isn't dragging, the fights are brilliant, and the characters seem to be revisiting their original motivations for fighting. There's also some wonderful insights into other characters, like the one who has recently taken over my brain, Hisagi Shuuhei.

Mostly though, I just like looking at Shuuhei. )

Sometimes I just have to wonder if Studio Pierrot has any yaoi fans in the scriptwriting and/or animation departments.

How have I spent a good portion of my bank holiday? Doing this sudoku:

Cut for big picture, if it works this time. )

And as I know at least one person will cry 'pics or it didn't happen' at me:

Do not look behind here if you want to do the sudoku yourself with cheating. )

I like breaking characters, in various ways. Normally I don't take them so far that they can't be put back together again in a recognisable state. This time though... this time I think I might have taken it too far.

Um, I think an angst warning may be needed here... )
