Note: 31 of 31. The title is a reference to where Tolkien’s elves went at the end of their time on Earth.
Summary: Valen sails away.


Sailing into the West

The Minbari said he went to sea. That was as good an explanation as he could have come up with himself. No one would really understand.

Lorien sat beside him in the small ship.

“You will take your place with us, Valen, Minbari not of Minbar. We await many more, but today, we await you.”

Valen felt lighter than he had in many long years, since he was a boy back on Mars.

“You have served with wisdom. Zathras did his job well. The others will join us one day.” Lorien smiled his mysterious smile and Valen felt complete peace.

10 Favorite Babylon 5 Quotes

*Marcus Cole: I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, 'wouldn't it be much worse if life *were* fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them?' So now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe. ~~ "A Late Delivery from Avalon":


Delenn: If I don't see you again here, I will see you in a little while in a place where no shadows fall. ~~ "Confessions and Lamentations"


Sheridan: What does the candle represent?
Delenn: Life.
Sheridan: Whose Life?
Delenn: All Life. Every Life. We are all born as molecules in the hearts of a billion stars. Molecules that do not understand politics or policies or differences. Over a billion years, we foolish molecules forget who we are and where we came from. In desperate acts of ego, we give ourselves names, fight over lines on maps, and pretend that our light is better than everyone else's. The flame reminds us of the piece of those stars that lives on inside us. The spark that tells us: "You should know better." The flame also reminds us that life is precious as each flame is unique. When it goes out, it's gone forever. And there will never be another quite like it. So many candles will got out tonight. I wonder some days if we can see anything at all. ~~ "All My Dream Torn Asunder"


Sheridan: Ambassador, I've learned the hard way that governments deal in matters of convenience, not conscience. If they fall behind, it is up to the rest of us to make up the difference. If we don't, who will? ~~ "Acts of Sacrifice"


Ivanova: All love is unrequited, Stephen. All of it. ~~ "Rising Star"


Londo Mollari: I suppose there'll be a war now, hmm? All that running around and shooting at one another. You would have thought sooner or later it'd go out of fashion. ~~ "The Gathering"


Londo Mollari to Mr. Morden: Do you really want to know what I want? Do you really want to know the truth? I want my people to reclaim their rightful place in the galaxy. I want to see the Centauri stretch forth their hand again and command the stars. I want a rebirth of glory, a renaissance of power! I want to stop running through my life like a man late for an appointment, afraid to look back or look forward. I want us to be what we used to be! I want... I want it all back the way it was. Does that answer your question? ~~ "Signs and Portents"


G’kar: If I take a lamp and shine it toward the wall, a bright spot will appear on the wall. The lamp is our search for truth, for understanding. Too often we assume that the light on the wall is God. But the light is not the goal of the search; it is the result of the search. The more intense the search, the brighter the light on the wall. The brighter the light on the wall, the greater the sense of revelation upon seeing it! Similarly, someone who does not search, who does not bring a lantern with him, sees nothing. What we perceive as God, is the byproduct of our search for God. It may simply be an appreciation of the light, pure and unblemished, not understanding that it comes from us. Sometimes we stand in front of the light and assume that we are the center of the universe. God looks astonishingly like we do! Or we turn to look at our shadow, and assume that all is darkness. If we allow ourselves to get in the way, we defeat the purpose; which is to use the light of our search to illuminate the wall in all its beauty - and in all its flaws. And in so doing better understand the world around us. ~~ "Meditations on the Abyss"


Anla’Shok Credo: "I am a Ranger."
"We walk in the dark places no others will enter."
"We stand on the bridge, and no one may pass."
"We live for the One, we die for the One"


Sinclair: We have to stay here. And there's a simple reason why. Ask ten different scientists about the environment, population control, genetics, and you'll get ten different answers, but there's one thing every scientist on the planet agrees on. Whether it happens in a hundred years or a thousand years or a million years, eventually our Sun will grow cold and go out. When that happens, it won't just take us. It'll take Marilyn Monroe, and Lao-Tzu, and Einstein, and Morobuto, and Buddy Holly, and Aristophanes, and - all of this - all of this - was for nothing. Unless we go to the stars. ~~ "Infection"

It's still the 24th, right? Yes. Good.

I was going to write fic for this originally, but then Life happened and also I couldn't think of aaaaanything good to write about, so I'm cheating a little bit.

First, I made ten random icons. The three below, and the rest are here.

And as the second part (and this is where the cheating comes in), I want to link you to my scifibigbang that has kept me busy these past few months and that just went live yesterday, so maybe you haven't read it yet. And as a bonus you even get the gorgeous art my artist made for it! Win/win, right?

B5 Tweets!

Title: B5 Tweets!
Author: [livejournal.com profile] vjs2259
Description: What it says on the tin.
Pairings: John/Delenn, Jeff/Catherine, Marcus/fantasy!Susan, a hint of Londo/G'Kar, a smidgeon of Susan/Delenn, and many, many friendships
Rating: PG for innuendo? Not really, more of a hard G :)
Beta: [livejournal.com profile] nenya_kanadka. Thanks much for the Tweet Tutorial!

There's a bit of a story in there, probably a Season of No Shadows tale, but mostly just vignettes. Hard to say if there are spoilers since it's a bit AU-ish, especially the last bit. For the whole show, we'll say, just to be safe.

35 Babylon 5 icons from episodes 3x16: "War Without End: Part One" & 3x17: "War Without End: Part Two". Spoilers for both episodes.

I don't even know what this is, I guess it's a fic? I am indeed such a giant nerd that not only do I own the Babylon 5 Security Manual, I have written it an appendix. About zombies. You never know, it could happen. People ought to be prepared.

Someone has to think of these things. )

These are mostly from Season 1. I've been going through icons episode by episode, and this is as far as I've gotten so far. There are also some text only quote icons that from other season, though.

Title: Realizing
Author: [livejournal.com profile] icecream_junkie
Pairing: Sinclair/Ivanova
Rating: R
Spoilers: season 1 episode “Eyes”.
Summary: When Ivanova visits Sinclair in his quarters to resign he realizes what she really means to him. Set during the first season episode “Eyes”.
Disclaimer: Babylon 5 is property of WB and JMS. I don’t own anything. Since this is set during “Eyes” when Ivanova visits Sinclair in his quarters to resign, I had to borrow the whole scene some of the original lines from the show meaning that the first part isn’t mine. I just took the liberty to add my own interpretation. No copyright infringement intended, no money made from this.
