Ramblings of Loz

24th November, 2005. 10:28 pm. I'm not a book-geek!

Bold the ones you have read:

Top 20 Geek Novels from The Guardian

1. The HitchHiker's Guide to the Galaxy -- Douglas Adams
2. Nineteen Eighty-Four -- George Orwell
3. Brave New World -- Aldous Huxley
4. Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? -- Philip Dick
5. Neuromancer -- William Gibson
6. Dune -- Frank Herbert
7. I, Robot -- Isaac Asimov
8. Foundation -- Isaac Asimov
9. The Colour of Magic -- Terry Pratchett
10. Microserfs -- Douglas Coupland
11. Snow Crash -- Neal Stephenson
12. Watchmen -- Alan Moore & Dave Gibbons
13. Cryptonomicon -- Neal Stephenson
14. Consider Phlebas -- Iain M Banks
15. Stranger in a Strange Land -- Robert Heinlein
16. The Man in the High Castle -- Philip K Dick
17. American Gods -- Neil Gaiman
18. The Diamond Age -- Neal Stephenson
19. The Illuminatus! Trilogy -- Robert Shea & Robert Anton Wilson
20. Trouble with Lichen -- John Wyndham

This is the problem I have - I read a lot, but not books by authors anyone else knows about. Closest I've gotten was looking at reading 1984, and I've read another of Neil Gaiman's book- but I wasn't that taken by it anyway.

You Were Actually Born Under:
You are quick witted, charming, and bring luck to all who know you.
A bit greedy, you tend to go after what you want - with success.
Clever, you seek out knowledge... and eventually use what you know to your advantage.
You are very loyal, and you treat your real friends like they are family.

You are most compatible with a Dragon or Monkey.
You Should Have Been Born Under:

You've got a ton of energy - and need plenty of room to roam.
You tend to follow your whims, and it's hard for you to stick to one thing.
Specific jobs, loves, and friends are always changing and never a part of your life for long.
Very intuitive, you tend to know what people are thinking before they say a word.

You are most compatible with a Dog or Tiger.

21st March, 2005. 7:22 pm. My character, Elandri

LJ Username: luvloz
e-mail: (VALID, PLEASE!): lozza@BonBon.net
Max rating of picture?: PG
Have you read the rules?: Yes
Personal gallery: http://luvloz.deviantart.com

Name: Elandri
Gender: Female
Race: Humanoid
Eyes: Green, with the thin yellow tint to the outside of the iris.
Hair: Brown, down to mid-back
Build: Athletic
Physical description: Elandri looks mainly human, besides the fact her legs merge into something similar to a horses leg. She also has a facial and stomach tattoo, and a scar on her right shoulder.
Accessories: She wears a pendant which is a symbol of her tribe. There is a plaited stand on hair on her left, beads are tied at the bottom.

Personality/backstory: The Opakii tribe (of which she is a part) are a small group of maybe 100 who live on a cliff near the sea. They are humanoid in form, but they are not from or on Earth. Elandri is the chief's daughter, so she lives a very regimented life and will eventually be forced into an arranged marriage. This doesn't sit well with Elandri, as she is a very strong willed girl. At some point in the future she will fight with her father and leave the tribe. I see her travelling all over her world, meeting a variety of different characters. She is quite friendly and very intelligent.
She is an apprentice mage, who specialises in healing. As her story develops she will learn more of her gifts and the way they can be used by the different people she meets. She is still rather nieve about the way the real world opperates, and is too eager to help out people she doesn't really know.

These two show her in her old style, but may help with personality:

You scored as Severus Snape. Well you're a tricky one aren't you? Nobody quite has you figured out and you'd probably prefer it stayed that way. That said you are a formidable force by anyone's reckoning, but there is certainly more to you than a frosty exterior and a bitter temper.

you are violet

Your dominant hues are red and blue. You're confident and like showing people new ideas. You play well with others and can be very influential if you want to be.

Your saturation level is lower than average - You don't stress out over things and don't understand people who do. Finishing projects may sometimes be a challenge, but you schedule time as you see fit and the important things all happen in the end, even if not everyone sees your grand master plan.

Your outlook on life is bright. You see good things in situations where others may not be able to, and it frustrates you to see them get down on everything.

15th October, 2004. 11:26 am. My Gryphon, Fessonia

Name: Loz
LJ Username: luvloz
Valid e-mail: lozza@BonBon.net
Max rating of picture (G-R): PG

Name: Fessonia
Gender: Female
Type of mythic: Gryphon
Subspecies/breed: Front half is based on the Crimson Rosella and the back on a white Bengal Tiger.
Eyes: Black, with blue feathers surrounding.
Description: Fessonia is the size of a house cat, so smaller than your average gryphon. Head and upper chest are covered in feathers. The rest of the body is based on a tiger, so she has four paws, NOT two paws and two talons. Wings are generally a bit smaller than average gryphon size. Wing colour is red with black markings, then black the blue for flight feathers. Underside of feathers is black for all stages, with sheen of matching topside colour.
Accessories (clothing, jewlery, weapons, etc): Two earings in left ear, joined by a chain which dangles with an emerald charm at the far end. Gold bracelet on right leg.
Preferred environment: Australian Bush
Personality: Quiet and gentle. While she's normally quite serious herself, she likes to hang out with funny and cute characters, as she still has a sense of humour and likes to laugh. She has two magical powers: lightning and the ability to cute-ify.
Anything else we should know: I've been playing with the idea of giving her an anthro form, so if you want to give that a try feel free.
