On A Friday Night  
Watching the Horsemen eps of Highlander to see if it will jump start my muse.

Very amusing parody of HP 7 here. Obviously, there be spoilers.

em_kellesvig had a meme on five character deaths that affected you. My answers were:

~ Helen Burns, Jane Eyre's best friend. At age seven, that had a fairly profound influence on me.

~ Boromir in Lord of the Rings.

~ Lucy Muir in The Ghost and Mrs. Muir.

~ Aragorn, and then Arwen in the appendices of LotR

~ And I picked one real person, because my initial exposure to her was through novels, and because I never stick the rules, Lady Jane Grey.

Now Silas and Caspian are chasing Duncan around.

Oh, and I was slashing my neighbours earlier tonight!

Later: I always sing the Slinky jingle during the double quickening. And then I want to hug Methos.

What happened to Aragorn and Arwen? I never read the books.

It's in the appendices. Aragorn chooses his time to die, and Arwen, at the end, can't accept his mortality. He tells her that it isn't too late, she could renounce her choice and join her people, but she refuses. Aragorn dies, she says goodbye to their grown children, and she goes back to what had been Lothlorien to wander a place where they'd truly fallen in love. Then she dies of grief. Which is something elves are prone to. It always makes me cry :)

The movies used some of that when Elrond shows her her future, and that also makes me cry [g]

(uses icon from that scene)

It's very sad :( No matter how many times I read it, it makes me cry.

Great choices. I second Helen Burns!

And Boromir, obviously.

I realize I should have added Beth from Little Women.

Lady Jane Grey's death affected me too.

Also Beth in little women and Sara's father in a little princess.

Oh, duh! Beth! Okay, that should have been on my list.

The meme comes from fannish5. The comm posts one question every Friday and you answer it on your LJ. Sometimes, the question may not apply to your fan interests so you just skip it that week. But it's fun, it doesn't clog up your f'list, and sometimes, it may actually spark something.
