He is risen! He is risen!
Tell it out with joyful voice!
He hath burst his three days' prison;
Let the whole wide earth rejoice!
Death is conquered, Man is free,
Christ hath won the victory.

Come with high and holy hymning,
Chant our Lord's triumphant lay.
Not one darksome cloud is dimming
Yonder glorious morning ray,
Breaking o'er the purple east,
Symbol of our Easter feast.

He is risen! He is risen!
He hath opened Heaven's gate!
We are free from sin's dark prison,
Risen to a holier state!
And a brighter Easter beam
On our longing eyes shall stream.

I did it!

Some of you may recall the Milliways Charity Auction for Haiti, in relation to which I mentioned a picture involving Toph beating up Felix.

Well. I've finally managed to make it.

Ta-da! )

This is also a post to show off my new icon. You see, I worked on this picture from left to right, and before I put Toph in it looked like Felix had scored a critical failure on his earth-attack. For the record, I hate dealing with text in Inkscape.

I think I may need a new "My Fandom's Universe" icon: "My fandom's universe is a hall of spiritual mirrors".

Good book. Awaiting announcement of the next.

Edit: Oh, and the shippers are going to have fun with the last half. Probably already are, come to think of it.

Wow. I suspect that Elizabeth Moon may be the greatest writer alive, at least in the realm of fantasy fiction.

Here's why.

Oath of Gold, the third book in the Deed of Paksenarrion trilogy, was published in 1989. I last read it in... 2007? 2008? Over a year ago, anyway. Oath of Fealty, which begins a sequel trilogy, was published last month, and I have just finished reading it. Throughout, it referenced characters, events, and details from each of the Paksenarrion books. At each point I was able to remember, with startling clarity, what was being referred to, and often additional things as well. By contrast, I couldn't recognize more than half-a-dozen names in the tenth Wheel of Time book some two months after reading the ninth. Even more, I've read any number of fanfics in which I couldn't keep the characters straight from one chapter to the next, minutes apart.

Somewhat startlingly, [livejournal.com profile] camwyn is in this book. Well, okay, not her. It's actually a character named Camwyn, who is named for the same character from whom she took her internet handle.
