My fandom has its own room with a walk-in closet...

hermioneluna did this and I thought it looked fun - as long as my characters wanted to write to me.

Leave a list of fictional characters in your journal that you would love to get a message from. Your f- and f-of-list's mission, should they choose to accept it, to write you an in-character "letter" from a character on that list. Then they post their own list in their journal and the process continues!

I'm going to list one character from a few of my fandoms, but if you want to write a letter from a different character in that fandom, you're more than welcome - any letters at all would be appreciated.

due South - Turnbull
Battlestar Galactica - Leoben
Angel - Fred
Buffy - Oz
Futurama - Zapp Brannigan
The Simpsons - Santa's Little Helper Troy McClure
Family Guy - Stewie
Harry Potter - Aberforth Dumbledore
Hornblower - Hobbs
Any character from any Pixar film.

Our land is girt, yes, I said girt, by sea...

Today is Australia Day. A day to celebrate Australia. Or that time a whole bunch of white europeans came to crush and dominate other cultures! Yay for exploration and oppression.

It happens over and over in the History of the World. There's no point whinging over it now, if that is all you ever do. But I like to keep it in mind at the very least.

I have lived in Australia for twelve years now, the anniversary was late November. I love Australia, especially Adelaide which is home to me - simple and true. I want to see more of this country, this land, and to understand the intricacies which are foreign to me.

I am proud to be Britonozzie. To varying degrees of strength, I feel great national pride. I do not think either of these titles - British or Australian - render me any greater than if I were from any other part of the world, but I celebrate the achievements of those who have gone before, just as I feel shame for those actions I feel demonstrated great failure.

So Happy Australia Day - you stereotyped day-off-work, where beers and barbeques are apparently plentiful. May the upcoming years engage in advancements and successes, no matter how insignificant they may appear.
