lost_spook: (AA - Herr Flick not in the handbook)
So there's not much going on, and I couldn't resist retrying the meme using last names. Some couples stayed together despite the odds: Evie Eliott & Eowyn, Frobisher & Gandalf, Maddy & Maid Marian, and Servalan & Seven. The results were mostly much scarier than last time, but it did throw up some things that were amusing - and one or two I want badly now:

More mayhem and scary pairings )
lost_spook: (be - laura/brittas (eek))
Meme found in the wild: Make a list of all the characters in your icons. (Although you may have more than one icon of a single character, they only go on the list once.) Alphabetize it. Take the first two people on the list; that's your first pairing. Second two people; second pairing, etc. Treat us to some commentary once you're done.

I thought it'd be fun... I hadn't quite realised what a weird jumble of characters I have - some of them are there more for the action in the icon than the character. So, in most cases, let's say that instead of a commentary, a horrified silence might be more appropriate?

(Actually, it turned out better than I expected. For the first half of the alphabet, anyway.)

38 random pairings and an odd man out )
lost_spook: (yuletide - bob cratchit)
I thought I'd have a go at using my screencaps from Scrooge (1970) to make some generic Winter/Christmas icons, and also some Yuletide ones. They vary, and are mostly basic, but I think some ended up quite pretty. The credits had some nice illustrations by Ronald Searle.

The usual rules apply: want, take, have, credit. No hotlinking & comments are ♥.
lost_spook: (S&S - Silver looks up)
I made this yesterday (& probably spent too much time doing it) and apparently I won't be happy till I've posted it. I'll catch up with everything else tomorrow. Besides, who doesn't want happy festive stuff in their life, even if it is a bit early. And just one of the million and one adaptations of A Christmas Carol?

Well, ish. The bits with David Collings in as Bob Cratchit, anyway. I thought I'd better explain my strangeness the other night by sharing these with you. It was tough not making it as epic as the David Collings picspam to which this is an (early) festive addendum, but I managed it!

Basically, I was so tired on Monday when I watched it that my brain hiccoughed and fell over the Oliver! accent, and then failed to pick itself up due to the unreal amount of Dickensian Christmassy fluff going on. (what is this i don't even. yes, exactly.)

There was some stuff with Albert Finney and some ghosts played by Alec Guinness, Edith Evans and Kenneth More, but why would anyone be interested in that? (I know, sorry! I... just was more interested in this other stuff under the cut. I might use the more general caps to make some festive/winter icons, maybe.)

The Cratchits are going to have as good a Christmas as the Lord Mayor of London himself! )
