My user name is hells_half_acre. Because I like saying stuff like "I searched all over hell's half acre, and couldn't find the bloody thing." When I wanted to make an LJ devoted to my love for Supernatural, I decided that hells_half_acre was a very fitting username for that community. I didn't actually intend to put any posts about my life up, but I get bored a lot.
2. My name is _____ because ______.
My name is the only one like it in the entire world. Well, my first name-last name combination is. That's why I don't use it on LJ. I'm REALLY easy to track down. I think right now I have my name as kalixa, which isn't hiding things THAT well, but I like the way it sounds. Actually, I think there's a town in Quebec called Calixa, but I could be wrong.
3. My journal is titled ____ because ____.
My journal is titled Many A Vanished Scene, because it's a phrase from a poem I like, and I thought it fitting for a place where I post fanfiction. The poem is called The Fire of Driftwood by Longfellow. In particular, my favorite lines of the poem are:
We spake of many a vanished scene,
Of what we once had thought and said,
Of what had been, and might have been,
And who was changed, and who was dead;
And all that fills the hearts of friends,
When first they feel, with secret pain,
Their lives thenceforth have separate ends,
And never can be one again.
-Actually, reading over those lines now: They really just suit Supernatural in general. Poor boys.
4. My friends page is called ____ because ____.
My friends page is called "Like-minded individuals and communities" because I'm a dork.
5. My default userpic is ____ because ____.
My default userpic is what I called "The Damned and the Saved" - well before I knew where Kripke was taking the mythology. I absolutely love the shot and the way the creater of the icon has coloured it. The original shot is from Houses of the Holy, which was long before they wove Dean into the mythology as anything more than the burdened older brother...yet I love the symbolism in their positions...standing under the trefoil - Sam crouched and looking up at Dean, who stands just a little bit more into the light than Sam does...man, love this icon.
