Ith (ithildyn) wrote,


Cool little meme pillaged from viridian (yeah, working on the psyching myself up to write thing so anything to procrastinate)

1. My username is _____ because ____.

2. My journal is titled ____ because ____.

3. My subtitle is ____ because ____.

4. My friends page is called ____ because ____.

5. My default userpic is ____ because ____.

My username is Ithidrial because Ithildin was taken. But at least it had Ith in it, which has become my nickname over the last 12 years. Both are Elvish from the Lord of the Rings. Ithidrial was something I made up at one point, and an off the cuff LJ name when I created my journal.

My journal is titled 'Vermilion Sea' because I created my LJ on the spur of the moment and that's what popped into my head. It's the name of a place in my "Bloodties" fic series, and I've always been rather fond of it. Mauve sands, winged dolphins, and tropical breezes :)

My subtitle is 'The Elves have left us, and we have not mourned to see them go' because I've always loved that line. Many years ago, I was reading a biography of J.R.R. Tolkien and it said the line had been jotted down in a notebook found after his death. It's always haunted me.

My friends page is called 'Speak Friend and Enter' because those are the words in Ithildin on the Doors of Moria.

My default userpic is 'The End of All Things' because it's my current moody favourite. It's a xover sort of icon. A pic of Methos from 'Methos' and the quote, Frodo's words to Sam on Mount Doom. Also the title of one of my favourite pieces of Tolkien art by Michael Whelan.

Yeah, there's a whole Lord of the Rings theme going on here, huh?
