Favourite The Last Remnant fic art sites:
This is Ciceqi's personal dreamwidth account, with many fabulous TLR fics, but right now her account isn't being updated and her fic site, Blood Love and Rhetoric is under construction. When it is back up, one of her best fics is called Home, and it is the best Rush returns fic I have ever read, period.
This livejournal account holder has done some excellent TLR fanart, her work is first rate and really touching in some cases. Warning for the little kiddies on this site, mature language, and she likes slashing the boys. _
You can't really add wredwrat without mentioning Amei, so here is wredwrat's partner in crime when it comes to TLR fanart. More good stuff, though you'll need to look for it. Mature language and slash warning.
Infamy! Infamy! They've all got it infamy! - Julius Ceasar, Carry on Cleopatra
"I'll turn him into a flea...a harmless little flea. Then, I'll put that flea in a box, then I'll put that box inside of another box, and then I'll mail that box to myself and when it arrives...AHAHAHA! I'LL SMASH IT WITH A HAMMER! IT'S BRILLIANT, BRILLIANT, BRILLIANT I TELL YOU! GENIUS I SAY!" - Eizma, The Emperors New Groove
"I'm a damsel; I'm in distress; I can handle this. Have a nice day." -Megura, Hercules
"Aang, this is my friend Foo-Foo Cuddly-Poops. Foo-Foo Cuddly-Poops, Aang." - Sokka, Avatar: The Last Airbender
Reno: Hey, partner... =hold up bomb and shakes it slightly= This thing... uh... got any bite to it?
Angeal: "When the B Unit sets off the signal, you're to sneak in and-"
"Me? I'm dishonest, and with a dishonest man, you can always trust him to be dishonest. Honestly, it's the honest ones you have to watch out for because you never know when he's going to turn around and do something incredibly stupid." - Jack Sparrow, PotC
"Let's face it, this is not the worst thing you've caught me doing." - Tony Stark, Iron Man
"Every time I hook up with you, I get SHOT! Last time, I got shot in the ASS. I am in mourning for my ass!" - Izzy, The Mummy Returns
"You are here to learn the subtle science and exact art of potionmaking. I don't expect you will really understand the beauty of the softly simmering cauldron with its shimmering fumes, the delicate power of liquids that creep through human veins, bewitching the mind, ensnaring the senses ... I can teach you how to bottle fame, brew glory, even stopper death -- if you aren't as big a bunch of dunderheads as I usually have to teach." - Potion Master Severus Snape, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (Philosopher, not Sorcerer, got it! If there is one thing that always drives me up the wall when reading a Harry Potter fic, it's seeing the Philosopher's stone refered to as the Sorcerer's stone.)
"The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not 'Eureka!' (I found it!) but 'That's funny ...'" - Isaac Asimov
“Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It's the transition that's troublesome.” – Isaac Asimov
"God wants spiritual fruit, not religious nuts." - Unknown
"Man invented language to satisfy his deep need to complain." - Lily Tomlin
"A woman is like a teabag; you never know how strong she is until she's in hot water. - Eleanor Roosevelt
"It begins with a character, usually, and once he stands up on his feet and begins to move, all I can do is trot along behind him with a paper and pencil trying to keep up long enough to put down what he says and does." - William Faulkner
"Christianity : The belief that some cosmic Jewish Zombie can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him that you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree. Makes perfect sense." - Christopher Hitchens
"Asking a working writer what he thinks about critics is like asking a lamppost how it feels about dogs." - Christopher Hampton
"Some mornings it just doesn't seem worth it to gnaw through the leather straps." - Emo Phillips
“Therapy is expensive, popping bubble wrap is cheap. You choose.” - Anonymous
"Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill. I think that there is nothing, not even crime, more opposed to poetry, to philosophy, ay, to life itself than this incessant business." - Henry David Thoreau
"Literature is an occupation in which you have to keep proving your talent to people who have none." - Jules Renard
"You cannot depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus." - Mark Twain

YOU KNOW YOU'RE AN AUTHOR IF...
You talk to yourself a lot. (Yup, that's me!)
You talk to yourself about talking to yourself. (e.g. 'Why do I constantly ask my self random things?')
In a boring meeting you find yourself constructing a scene with your current or favourite characters, imagining how they would act or behave in a situation similar to this, and become so immersed in your imaginings that you itch for pen and paper or a laptop, and totally miss the rest of the the conversation.
When you talk to yourself, you often talk to yourself like you're talking to someone else. (e.g. 'Have you ever noticed that deliver could mean someone's liver?')
You live off of sugar and caffine (the two greatest things ever discovered!)
You'll check your e-mail every day of the week for exactly a week, and then disappear off the face of the earth for the next three months.
You're e-mails tend to ramble a lot and be incredibly random.
When replying to an e-mail, you'll never actually address the point of it.
You become mesmerised anything highly polished and shiny or sparkly. (Ooh...)
No matter where you are in a room you never have to get up to find a pen/pencil and paper. (I tend to carry around a pocket notebook and mini pen... T_T')
The letters on your keyboard are wearing off. (Are they ever! I actually replaced my entire keyboard just before christmas because of that...)
People think you have A.D.D. (Close but no prize, my particular brand of mental genius is called Aspergers Syndrome.)
You constantly start talking in third person, present or past tense. (Including random moments of wildly exagerated foreign accents, "Leesen verry carefullee, for I vill say zees only vonce." A very big prize if you know where that quote came from, an old tv program your parents might have watched.)
You start thinking about making lists like this and start giggling for no "apparent" reason.
Your friends stopped looking at you funny for your odd bouts of madness a loooooong time ago.
18 Ways To Maintain A Healthy Level Of Insanity
1. At lunch time , sit in your parked car with sunglasses on and point a hair dryer at passing cars. See if they slow down. (Apparently, it works. Especially if you have a white car and aviator sunglasses)
2. Every time someone asks you to do something, ask if they want chips with that.
3. Put your rubbish bin on your desk and label it " Inbox".
4. Put decaf in the coffee maker at work for 3 weeks, then once everyone has gotten over their caffeine addictions, switch to espresso.
5. In the memo field of all your checks, write "For Smuggling Diamonds".
6. Finish all your sentences with "In accordance with The Prophecy".
7. Sing "Getting away with murder" by Papa Roach when a police officer is walking past you on the pavement.
8. As often as possible, skip rather than walk.
9. Order a diet water when ever you go out to eat, with a serious face.
10. Specify that your drive-through order is "To go".
11. Sing along at the opera.
12. Go to a poetry recital, and ask why the poems don't rhyme?
13. Put mosquito netting around your work area and play tropical sounds all day.
14. Five days in advance, tell your friends you can't attend their party because you're Not In the Mood.
15. Dress up like the grim reaper before going on your weekly shopping trip, humming the funeral march while waiting at the checkout.
16. When the money comes out the ATM, scream "I won! I won!"
17. When leaving the zoo, start running towards the parking lot, yelling "Run for your lives! They're loose!"
18. Tell your children over dinner, "Due to the economy, we are going to have to let one of you go."
You're a 90's kid if:
You can finish this 'ice ice _'
If you even know what an original walkman is.
You've gotten creeped out by "Are You Afraid of the Dark?"
You know the Macarena by heart.
Before we realized all this would eventually disappear.
OBITUARY FOR THE LATE MR. COMMON SENSE (As published in The London Times
Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.
He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:
Knowing when to come in out of the rain
Why the early bird gets the worm
Life isn't always fair
Maybe it was my fault.
Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge). His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6 year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.
Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get Parental consent to administer Calpol, sun lotion, or a band-aid to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.
Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband; churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.
Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.
Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.
Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason.
He is survived by his 3 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, Someone Else Is To Blame, and I'm A Victim.
Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone.
If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.
[April 2011 - Update]
I live! Yes dear readers, I haven't dropped off the face of the planet permanently! Broken ribs and a chest infection did not stop me, though they did pretty much kill my chance at getting an HND! T_T (sob)
[November 2011 - Update]
I'm sorry for turning into a very late updater! I have been supremely uninspired these last months, my brain has been bogged down in RL problems (including a very dead computer and lost story scenes) and mind numbing social events. I will try and update UE at least once before the new year, though I'm afraid SotB has just ground to a halt for now. On a better note I know exactly where I'm going with UE, the slowly fleshing out bones of the complete plot amounting to at least 30 chapters, if not more. Please bear with me for now, for I will return in the near future! That's a promise!
[February 2014 Update]
I have no excuse except life and lack of inspiration. *sob* I am however working on getting Chapter 15 of Unexpected Events out in the next couple of weeks! *smattering of unenthusiastic cheers* It will probably be a bit shorter that the 7K effort of chapter 14, but it will make an appearance soon! I promise!
[August 2014 Update]
Urgh, John Sykes is surprisingly difficult to write in character, especially when he's being serious. That and I can't decide whether to keep him in chapter 16 or shift him to chapter 17 to avoid a disjointed scene... Also Rush has rushed off. Again. *totally unrepentant punner*
