About this Journal
Welcome!

My name is Shannon. I'm a college student and aspiring writer. Thanks to a close friend, I created this journal in hopes that it will be home to some of my "literary" works - fanfiction, poems, song lyrics, and original short and long stories - on which I hope to receive feedback. I appreciate you taking the time to stop by!

Enjoy.

-Shannon

Jun. 6th, 2010 @ 12:44 am Glee Song Wish List - U-#
With the Season Finale of Season 1 on Glee approaching, I began to contemplate which songs I would like to see (and would have liked to see) on the show. After going through 4,000 + songs on my iPod, I've comprised a very long list under the cut. Enjoy. :)

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY TO ALL AMERICAN MEMBERS!


After a few days of absence, I'm back with the Songs of the Day for July 4th! To make up for the missed days, and with one month left until the release of Breaking Dawn, there are 25 songs today. All 25 songs are waiting for you with more parodies! Hope you enjoy!

Once again, these songs and their order are random because my iPod, which has 2,000 songs on it, was on shuffle, so I wrote down the songs as they came. :) And, yes, there are songs from basically every decade and every genre. Don't be surprised to see boy bands, showtunes, and oldies! Also, I realize that throughout this process, I may post songs that someone else has in the past. I'm okay with that. I hope you are too.

Please note that all the links of the songs go to YouTube. I'm not technologically advanced, so I can't link you to somewhere where you can download them, but I do want you to have a chance to at least hear each song...and sometimes I find an excellent Jacob/Bella fanvideo to link!

Hope you Enjoy!

Twenty-Five Songs Under the CutCollapse )

God bless all of you, and God bless America!

Okay, so while this is not exactly the way I pictured my first post to go, here it is...

Before you bother to read any of this, you must know that I am a MASSIVE "Harry Potter" fan. I am an original fan, which means I started reading the series back in 1998 when "Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone" was released in bookstores in the United States. I followed them religiously over the course of the following 10 years. Recently, I have come to enjoy the "Twilight" series by Stephenie Meyer, though admittedly, not as much as J.K. Rowling's series. (I actually read them because someone said that "Twilight" is the next "Harry Potter." After reading the series so far, I can conclude that as popular as the series is, it will never be a "Harry Potter." But I digress...)

That out of the way, I would like to reintroduce myself. I'm Shannon. I'm 19 and a college sophomore majoring in English and Creative Writing. I hope you enjoy this post...or at least don't think it a complete waste of your time. Also, before I start, I just have to explain that in the HP fandom, I have always been a Ron/Hermione and Harry/Ginny shipper. In the "Twilight" fandom, I am a big Jacob/Bella shipper. (For the record, while I am fully on Team Jacob/Werewolf, I still love Edward and have a little bit of Team Switzerland in me.) Anyway, now that you are fully aware just how big a dork I am...

I wanted to bring up a topic that may or may not have already been presented by a member somewhere in the Livejournal/"Twilight" universe. As the Harry Potter series is my first and true love, I can't help but ponder this particular topic:

Those who read the "Twilight" series know that Stephenie Meyer loves comparisons. From her alone, we have many Edward/Bella comparisons including the famous (as well as inaccurate and misguided) Romeo and Juliet, Cathy and Heathcliff, and I'm sure the list will continue as "Breaking Dawn" approaches with many "Midsummer Night's Dream" references. But what about Jacob and Bella? I'm sure there are some out there, though I am currently unaware of them. I have some of my own comparisons; mainly best friends turned lovers including, but not limited to: Luke and Lorelai (from 'Gilmore Girls'), Joey and Pacey (from 'Dawson's Creek'), Monica and Chandler, Ross and Rachel (from "F.R.I.E.N.D.S"), Will and Elizabeth (from "Pirates of the Caribbean" series), and Jim and Pam (from 'The Office'). But I'm here to explore another couple who have won the hearts of millions worldwide.

I am talking, of course about Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger from the "Harry Potter" series. How similar are they to the "Twilight" couple? In my opinion, very.

Okay, so while both Hermione Granger and Bella Swan are both very vulnerable and self-conscious, I won't waste my time or yours by pretending these two characters have much else in common becau As for the the other lovely part of both ships, Ron Weasley (my favorite character from the HP series) and Jacob Black (again, my favorite character from the "Twilight" series) are very much alike. Consider...

Any thoughts? Any comments? Any rebuttals? :D

EDIT: PLEASE REFRAIN FROM DEBATING R/HR V. H/HR OR J/B V. E/B. THIS IS A TOPIC ABOUT R/HR COMPARED TO J/B. IF YOU WANT TO REFUTE MY POST BY COMPARING H/HR WITH J/B OR EVEN R/HR WITH E/B, THAT'S FINE. BUT IF YOUR INTENTIONS ARE TO START UP ANOTHER SHIPPING WAR BETWEEN THE TWO HARRY POTTER SHIPS THAT HAS ALREADY BEEN DECIDED (R/HR V. H/HR), PLEASE TAKE IT SOMEWHERE ELSE. ALSO, THIS IS NOT THE PLACE TO DEBATE J/B V. E/B, SO PLEASE REFRAIN FROM BRINGING UP THAT DEBATE! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE COOPERATION! :)

Enjoy yourselves!
