"Hold your ground, hold your ground. Sons of Gondor, of Rohan, my brothers. I see in your eyes the same fear that will take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails. When we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of wolves and shattered shields and when the age of me comes crashing down, but it is not this day. This day we fight. For all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you, stand Men of the West." - Aragorn

"How do you pick up the threads of an old life? How do you go on, when in your heart you begin to understand that there is no going back? There are some things time cannot mend. Some hurts that go too deep that have taken hold." - Frodo

"Instead of a dark lord, you would have a queen. Beautiful yet terrible as the dawn. Trecherous as the sea. All would love me and despair." - Galadriel

None

I know we're running behind on everything, but life has been crazy-busy this week with work and re-decorating and wedding plans and replacing freak photographers who estimate at three times the price they originally quoted... and that's just me >.>

We will get up to date this week, though voting may have to hold off until a little later, depending on how much free time I get tomorrow.

Until life gets a little less crazy, quoted will be running on a two-week rotation: you get one week to submit icons to the challenge, as usual, but instead of another challenge beginning as soon as the last one ends, there'll be an extra week for voting and banners before the next challenge is issued.
(I've tried to explain that as clearly as possible, but if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask)

A new challenge will go up today (or, well, probably 'early tomorrow morning' by the time I finish writing it all out), and voting for challenges 30 and 31 will go up soon.

Quotes:
"She paints her face to hide her face. Her eyes are deep water. It is not for Geisha to want. It is not for geisha to feel. Geisha is an artist of the floating world. She dances, she sings. She entertains you, whatever you want. The rest is shadows, the rest is secret." - Nitta Sayuri

"Geisha are not courtesans. And we are not wives. We sell our skills, not our bodies. We create another secret world, a place only of beauty. The very word "geisha" means artist and to be a geisha is to be judged as a moving work of art." - Mameha

"We must not expect happiness, Sayuri. It is not something we deserve. When life goes well, it is a sudden gift; it cannot last forever." - Iwamura Ken (The Chairman)


Restriction/Theme:
The theme for this week is blue - your icon should feature the colour blue in some way.

A couple of things :)


First things first, it looks like death_of_dreams forgot to change the due-date for Week 30, the 'Say Anything' Challenge. Obviously the icons weren't due in before the contest was posted, but we're extending it to give more people a chance to enter :)

This contest will now be running until Friday, May the 19th.

Enter the competition here.



Secondly, we need more votes for last week's contest - if you haven't already voted, please go do so!


And, finally, if anyone has any suggestions for movie quotes that they would like to see, or themes/idea for restrictions, feel free to post them in a comment to this entry (comments will be screened).

((So I claimed to have a time machine so that I could make it Week 29 again if I wanted to, but my dearest Emsha (Your lovely mod, Phaet) would have none of it. Please encourage your close relatives to get checked for OCD if they're as buggerish as she can be. Love you muchly, L'Emsha. ^^))

Quote:

“'It's me, I'm cruising around, it's pretty late. I know I haven't called you lately. I guess I didn't want to be reminded of the Diane nightmare. By the way, I hardly remember her, I wiped her from my mind, I don't remember the time or place when I knew. This is it, the sight of our controversial first date. I met her in a mall, I should have known our relationship would be doomed. To our left we have, the street where she broke up with me, and there's the path we took. Corey, I guess in a way, I blamed you, I held it against you, you let me send that letter. I don't know, I thought it was the right thing too. I think I know too many girls, I should hang out with more guys. I should be like one of those guys who hangs out at the AM-PM, or the Gas 'N' Sip on a Saturday night. I don't know, do guys like that really know all the answers?'”  ~ Say Anything
