papaduil [personal profile] elvenking
frodo [personal profile] ringbearer

the mind
• lots of calm and quiet, the occasional elven melody, sometimes soothing, sometimes along the lines of tra la la lally down here in the valley
• sometimes concerned but also carefree and content at the same time
• mostly concentrating on the oxygen gardens and remembering how to work the technology
• acceptance of being stuck here and probably never going home; ties into being content
• spontaneous urge to start humming or singing under his breath. mostly in elvish.
• an underlying current of fear because of sauron. the shadow, the darkness.
• fuzzie wuzzies towards thranduil, aragorn, frodo, kili

the memory
THE GOOD
• learning how to shoot a bow [york]
• first hunting kill, a rabbit in the winter
• playing tag with friends in the snow. of note: running along the top of the snow. [frodo]
• bed time stories with mama and papaduil uguu [frodo]
• the sight/memory/smell/sound/feel of any number of trees, animals, meadows, flowers, streams, etc [york, kili]
• various festivals and woodland celebrations. of note: lots of dancing, singing, drinking, eating, partying in the middle of the forest in the middle of the night.
• lothlorien
• abax: bioluminescent flowers [thranduil]
• abax: interactions with castmates (eomer, eowyn, faramir, aragorn, frodo, etc)
• ataraxion: interactions with castmates (frodo, aragorn, thranduil, fili, kili, etc)
• abax: archery with lioriley, galen, susan pevensie, katniss everdeen
• abax: mild flirting with zevran over the network lol
• ataraxion: tacKLEHUGGING ARAGORN WELCOME BACK BRO that's it that's all the context you need

THE BAD
• first spider kill, the size of a young child. about as grotesque as you can imagine a spider being shot with an arrow
• learning woodcrafts; trapping, hunting, field dressing game
• seeing, feeling, hearing, and being told about the encroaching shadow, mostly as a 'military' briefing, partly being told by family members
• hearing the silence of the trees in hollin, the lamenting of the stones. deep they delved us, fair they wrought us, high they builded us; but they are gone. they sought the havens long ago. [york]
• various battles with spiders in mirkwood, or orcs and men with the fellowship. of note: parth galen, the death of boromir, helm's deep, the path of the dead, the fields of pelennor [york: mirkwood, helm's deep, pelennor]
• the stifling, deathly, lifeless silence of moria [kili: balin's tomb, gimli's grief]
• the fucking balrog
• abax: shadow creatures falling from the sky like fallen stars, the attacks and killings that follow
• ataraxion: telling dad about his sea-longing IT'S V SAD AND EMOTIONAL
• ataraxion: being told that the guy on the network is sauron DARK LORD COOTIES GET IT OFF GET IT OFF
• ataraxion: stasis sickness, snippets of the dream during stasis coma
• ataraxion: going into the ship with rey, garret, and corvo to hunt sum manticores
• ataraxion: they failed

THE UGLY
• hearing the sound of the gull and 'staring off into space'. of note: no words, but musical tone mixed in with rolling ocean waves that basically makes you yearn to cross the sea and 'go home' [kili]
• ataraxion: the terror of silence, being in the oxygen gardens and surrounded by plants but being unable to hear them (comes with the spontaneous urges to start humming)
• the aftermath of some battles. of note: hearing about the battle of the five armies and the last alliance, helm's deep, pelennor fields [york]
• abax: seeing network posts about friends dying because of shadow creatures
• abax: being asked by nikolai to kill him
• abax: killing nikolai luzhin
• ataraxion: meeting nikolai (again). comes with free knife against your throat.
• ataraxion: mask event. passively intense desire to protect friends and family. also wanting to take 'it' to better help protect his people. [frodo]

the mind
• very quiet but very active in the background. being a gazillion years old means the weight of a gazillion years worth of memories, and probably the knowledge of that niggling constantly
• self-serving, mostly looking out for himself only, except when it suits him otherwise
• like the dragon (glaurung), arya, roy walker
• never actually sleeping
• occasional bursts of various thoughts not pertaining to life on the ship itself.
includes but isn't limited to: being proud for sending a king and his soldiers to their deaths in the land of the gods as well as sinking the island they came from; violent intentions towards aforementioned king, ar-pharazon; melkor (just melkor); the other ainur; eru
• not really thinking much about life on the ship actually.
• very detailed architectural blueprints of metalwork designs (jewelry, weapons, shields, armor, etc)
• occasional, very long spurts of dead silence. like space silence. see: the good

the memory
THE GOOD (FOR YOU)
• communicating with eru/god and other ainur. of note: disembodied, deprived of senses, pure thought
• leaning about chaos and order, power and weakness, love and hate
• a crescendo of music that encompasses all that arda (earth) ever will be, the entire history of it, condensed into song [thranduil, meriadoc]
• the creation of arda, taking physical form and entering it, the shaping of arda by the hands of the ainur (and his own very hands) [elessar]
• working in the smithy [harry potter]
• organizing shit

THE MIXED FEELINGS (FOR HIM)
• just about anything mentioned in the silmarillion proper [galadriel: celebrimbor]
• serving under melkor [galadriel: finrod's death]
• melkor being arrested. twice. for misdemeanor. god, you'd think he'd learn.
• shapeshifting: giant wolf, giant snake, giant bat, going around bodiless in general
• 200 year hiatus after melkor's arrest [aragorn]
- restlessness, wandering, trying to fix arda and do something but nothing work
• destruction of beleriand
- not really his fault, the valar came to fight morgoth and kinda trampled it underwater
• destruction of numenor
- totally his fault. includes the corruption of the island's people and death by drowning. for the whole island.
• destruction of hollin [meriadoc, will graham, elessar]
- also totally his fault because someone wouldn't tell him where they hid their shinies. includes putting celebrimbor's body on a spike to use as a war banner
• destruction of-- no just taking over eriador
- and consequently being shunted out of it by gil galad a year later
• raising glaurung (the dragon), draugluin (the first ever evil talking wolf), watching carcaroth (melkor's pet evil talking wolf) grow up [will graham]
• weaseling his way into numenor and going from prisoner of war to the king's court adviser to high priest of melkor
• overseeing human sacrifices to melkor/morgoth [am]
• the making of the rings [galadriel: making of the one ring; frodo]
• the first nazgul (or assorted memories relating to them) [frodo]
• rng something i dare you

THE WHO THE HELL KNOWS AMALGAMATION OF EVERYTHING ELSE
• ataraxion: any number of conversations between him and arya, meriadoc, galadriel, jehan
• the void
• arda, before elves and men. very empty and quiet and calm and ordered and he's very content with that part
• except for the part where melkor is making volcanoes and destroying shit

I'd like there to be a lot of that sense of peace and oneness with nature because York mainly hung around spaceships and military installations. It'd be an interesting contrast for him.

I'm interested in the memory of him learning to shoot a bow, followed by the battles in Mirkwood and the losses in Helm's Deep and Pelennor Fields. It's all sort of connected, you see.

Did you have any choices for memories you'd like Legolas to experience? Not sure if I'd linked it to you but I have planning post here.
logicunlocked: (Let's think this through)

[personal profile] logicunlocked 2013-10-03 08:21 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah, I think the characters are supposed to feel drawn toward each other, and that's who they find their counterpart. That's the way I understand it anyway.

And that list of memories sounds good! I'll make a note of it.
logicunlocked: (Run for cover)

[personal profile] logicunlocked 2013-10-03 08:30 pm (UTC)(link)
Since you were vague about "a memory from a mission" I picked one arbitrarily, haha. In case you need clips I am linking them here:

Grenade blast scene - Important details to know - though York's two teammates, both in white armor, are using live ammunition, York and their opponent Texas only have armor-hardening paint rounds in their weapons. This is the pink foamy type stuff you can see Texas shooting at them. (You get even more context if you watch the whole episode, but it's not really necessary.)

York insists on running infiltration despite his injury - pretty self-explanatory, haha. Here you see his cocky attitude show through as well as his relationship to Carolina.
