The thing with the Fae X-men/Brotherhood thing going on, where your vows are literally as binding as the laws of physics if physics were based on strength of body and spirit-

Wouldn't flyting be a Thing, in that instance?  And the grandiose speeches that heroes and villains give, monologuing as a free action (as we say in my D&D group).  Those would literally be displays of power, as well as reckless overconfidence if you're vowing all over the place in public that your enemies will fall (and that their mothers dress them funny) etc.  I figure for every time one cannot complete an oath (or deliberately fails to, or breaks one), there's a loss of some of your magical energy, up to and including life force, as well as painful backlash.  That's if you're not so constrained by your vows that you cannot consider deliberately disobeying in the first place.

I keep thinking of thing that require a lot more brain power than I can bring to bear at the moment, but which I want to see.  Edit- to clarify, this suddenly requires a much better head for poetry and literary references than I have.

Sleeping Beauty as an active participant, not a passive object-

Some sort of trance-magic or astral travel?  Perhaps it’s something she’s doing to let her body heal or to wield great powers in defense of her kingdom-

Ooh. )

Now I just need a dynasty-long plot to fill in the slumber-years.

In other news, still doing major repairs on back apartment with Mom.  Roaches are long dead, but now we're just having to do all the cleanup work, and the painting turned into a biiiig project when I put scraper to crack and immediately went down to the cardboard, which then proceeded to peel (in uneven sheets and layers) off the entire wall.  All that and we still have to raise the water-heater about eighteen inches.

Been fooling around with craft foam to make drow armor- there's a bit of a secret project going on in my larp for next year's big event, and I'm working on seeing if I can contribute to it, even if I can't make it to this year's big event to volunteer.  So- armguards, of a suitably spidery and spiky nature.  'Tcha think?

Tomorrow I'll get some little buckles and see about doing up straps for them.

Something for that Urzai week prompt I put up and didn't have time to do anything with- "And I know you've got the ashes to prove it."

Something about the ancient, barbaric tradition of ash or charcoal tattoos, probably going back to either the parent culture of both or the Sun Warriors themselves.  Something to do with Ursa having walked the world, having the ashes of war on her face and hands.  Something about Ozai's dreaming.

Possibly also something about Ursa having a tattoo, although that's kind of a sidetrip.

Something about Azulon in ashes, and Ozai wondering what Ursa would have done with them.

Hellfire (Hunchback of Notre Dame).  Azula/Katara, since there's not enough Ozai footage for it, I don't think.  I dunno, I started thinking about wanting to do some sort of Ursa/Ozai vid and tried to think of appropriate songs, despaired at the small amount of footage of either of them, then started thinking of Ozai being all obsessive and watched a youtube vid of the song proper, and that his thing for Ursa wasn't *that* filthy-obsessive, and then- 'Ohhh, but what if it was *Katara* who played the gypsy girl, that's all *kinds* of suitable wrongness!'

I *just* deleted the bastards from my harddrive!  I don't need this!

...I'll figure something out.

Again.  Oy... 

Has this ever happened to anyone else?  You think of something from some long-ago bit of media you were never all that into but still liked, and then fall absolutely head over heels in fascination with some terribly minor character who never got much development, but what's there piques your brain?

I was thinking of Aladdin today, and the Mukhtar came to mind... )

Just- I know I can't be the only person this sort of thing happens to, with the sudden obssession over the truly obscure bits of fandom.  It's entirely uncharted territory, to my knowledge- no one else has put up a fanon on this anywhere I could see it- possibly I'm the only one who cares.

So here are the bits that have been in my head today...(be warned, it gets weird toward the end)- )
