Rant on my least-liked fandom opinion

A Note: I know that not everyone hates Joss, I just had an epiphany, and needed to get this out. Comments are most definitely welcome, because I know I'm not the best at stating my opinion, and I know others can and will state it better, but I will cut comments if I feel they are being abusive/missing the point.

I've seen rants about Joss Whedon and feminism before. Specifically how some think he's not as feminist as fans seem to think he is. )

Photospam: Mah Bichez

I've got a group of characters whom I adore that all fit into a certain mold but which still have a great deal of variation in between, and since female characters never get enough love, I felt the need to share them today, because seeing a photo of one of them just made me grin, almost manically.

I call them "mah bichez" affectionately, of course.  Every single one of them has a dark edge to them, and most are the "bad guys" in their universe, or at least one.

Bad Girls behind the cut )

Of course, those are just the ones who came to mind today, and definitely the ones at the top of my list.  Who would you add?

Fandom 30 Day Meme part 3

3 – For each of the fandoms from day two, what were your favorite characters to write?

Elfquest: Well, I did mostly OC's, but the ones I tended to pull from the main group were Winnowill, Cutter, and Scouter, if I recall... (did I mention I had a thing for evil characters? ;) )

Voyager: Janeway, and to a lesser extent, Chakotay and B'Elanna. I think Tom was all Foodie, really...

LotR: The fic I found myself writing focused on Frodo. Never finished it, though.

Harry Potter: Say it with me folks... Draco. Yeah...anyone who got that wrong needs to start at the beginning of my journal and work their way forwards. ;) Also Harry comes to me a lot, and Severus, Remus, Blaise, and Regulus. And sometimes George. Oh, and Lucius, and sometimes Kingsley. And I'm probably forgetting a half-dozen more, too.

Buffy: Haven't written a whole lot, but...Willow. :)

Firefly: Again, I think I've written maybe three drabbles? Plus, the group's so small, it's hard to have favorites. But I suppose if I chose, it would be Inara, Kaylee, Mal or Zoe.

Youkko Nitta: Magira. Again, I haven't quite written enough to be sure, but I do love he and Carlos... :DD

Merlin: Despite RPing Merlin to [info]kabal42's Arthur, I have to say that my first answer here is Morgana. Then Arthur, I think, and then Merlin. I suppose I'll find out more in November, huh? ;D

Fandom 30 Day Meme part 2

2 – Name the fandoms you've written in, and how much you've written in that fandom, and if you still write in it.

Hm...

My first fanfic I can remember writing (I might have written Star Trek or Star Wars stuff before it, but I don't remember anything specific) was in Elfquest. Chock full of OCs that broke pretty much every rule there is for Mary Sues. Thank god none of it ever made it online.

Then in college, I did a piece on the Dollenganger Saga by VC Andrews, but just one poem, and not so much fanfic.

As I said yesterday, my first published piece was with [info]foodie in Voyager fandom.

We moved on to LotR, but I don't think I ever finished the fanfic I was writing, though she posted several about the Hobbits that I helped with.

And then I moved into HP, and never looked back. I couldn't even begin to tell you how many stories I've written in HP any longer. I've been writing HP stories for about 7 years now, if I'm counting right. HP is also my first slash fandom.

Since writing in HP, I've done a few drabbles in older fandoms--Buffy and Firefly, a bit more in Trek and Elfquest.

And then Someone introduced me to Youkko Nitta... I haven't written enough there, but I do love playing with those two characters...I need to write more. :D

And of course, Merlin, my newest love, which will be the subject of my NaNoWriMo this year. :D I've done maybe a dozen or so drabbles, and a couple of fics in the fandom, but I promise there will be more.

And I think that's the lot...though I'd probably be terrified by what I could unearth on my hard drive...

Fannish 5!

I haven't done this in ages, but I can't resist. :D

If you could resurrect/bring back five characters, who would they be?

Spoilers for DH, also Buffy, Firefly, Babylon 5, and DS9 )

That Icon Meme again

Did this in October, but I added a bunch

Make a list of all the characters in your icons. (Although you may have more than one icon of a single character, they only go on the list once.) Alphabetize it. Take the first two people on the list; that's your first pairing. Second two people; second pairing. Etc. Then write your reaction to each pairing (or a snippet of a hypothetical fic featuring each pairing).

Decided to go with snippets this time. And I didn't include real people in this list. Just the people I use in RP as the charcter I use them for.

micro-ficlets behind the cut, with lots of HP, a bit of QAF, Firefly, Stargate, Beatles, and many others included, some mention of character death )

Old fandom meme, revived

Need to do this again.  New journal, things have shifted a bit, so time to re-list my fandoms:

Another Meme!

Gacked from [info]dkwilliams.  I couldn't resist

Summarise/give vague clues to 10 of your fandoms in one sentence, then see who on your friendslist can guess each fandom.

(And just to make this tougher, I'm not putting HP on here...)

  1. They came from outer space in saucers.  They're our friends.  They only want to have us for dinner. V guessed by [info]beren_writes 
  2. No!  Don't hug him!  *poof!*  *sigh* Just don't tell anyone, okay? Fruits Basket guessed by [info]calli_thaala
  3. She only died twice, her sister's a key, and her friends are a scary lot. Buffy guessed by [info]beren_writes
  4. Like Lost in Space.  But not. ST: Voyager guessed by [info]drusillas_rain
  5. To hunt, to howl at the moon, to find their ancestors. Elfquest guessed by [info]nyx_noire
  6. They are the One.  Who was, is, and will be. Babylon 5 by [info]ccmom
  7. Creature of the night solves night cases! Forever Knight guessed by [info]beren_writes
  8. What could possibly be wrong with a little ring? Lord of the Rings guessed by [info]beren_writes
  9. They've taken his land, she's got his love (though he'll never tell her), but they'll never take his freedom. Firefly guessed by [info]beren_writes
  10. Before there were six, there were three.  And there was plot, and it was good.  And there was believable love, and a fight for freedom.  And little teddy bears. Star Wars guessed [info]beren_writes 
Well, all but one guessed.  I just put the person who guessed it right first.

Fandoms

A meme, gacked from [info]fiona_fawkes who stole it from [info]furiosity who stole it from [info]kerrikins:

What fandoms do we have in common?

My main fandom is Harry Potter, of course.  Books, movies, fandom...  I love it all (though GOF the movie less so...)  Just too much there I adore.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer and a bit less so, Angel.  Joss whedon is my god.  I adore him, his one-liners, his characters, and the way he makes his worlds so real.

Sims - and yes, it is a fandom.  I could spend hours or even days creating houses, characters...  I love them.  I love playing them.

Star Trek.  Not active currently, but the only other fandom I really published stories in.  I can't imagine a world where there wasn't Star Trek in my life.  Even with the mistakes TPTB made, there's still so much good there.

Elfquest.  The only other fandom I got involved in on a personal level, though I wasn't in any holts.  I have always loved elves, so really, this was right up my alley.

Firefly.  See Buffy/Angel above.  And may I add, he makes the best female characters ever.

Star Wars.  Really the first trilogy, cause the prequels were bad.  Lucas had a great group of actors, the story had heart, and the entire thing advanced movie effects tenfold.

Stargate.  Love the idea, love the characters, love the stories.  Just a great team all around.  And anything that includes this much myth is right up my alley.

Forever Knight.  Best-ever vampire show on TV before Buffy.  It sucks that it only made it through three seasons.

Fruits Basket.  People who turn into animals?  And boys who can't touch girls?  How can I not love it?

Other minor fandoms: LOTR, B5 (Ivanova, Talia and Marcus...  God, yes.), XMen, V (the mini series), Batman. Teen Titans, Star Blasers/Space Battleship Yamato, Oran High School Host Club (omg, twins!), Battlestar Galactica, Quantum Leap, Law & Order, Labyrinth, Beauty and the Beast, Lost, Shakespeare

Yeah.  Just a few.  :P  And likely there's more I've forgotten.

So, who do you like?

Another meme

Gacked from [info]bookshop

Leave a list of fictional characters in your journal that you would love to get a message from. It is your friend-list's mission, should they choose to accept it, to write you an in-character "letter" from a character on that list. Then they post their own list in their journal and the process continues!

Harry Potter:
  • Snape
  • Lupin
  • Draco
  • Blaise
Fruits Basket
  • Yuki
  • Ayami
  • Kureno
Star Trek
  • Captain Janeway
  • Chakotay
  • B'Elanna
  • Jadzia Dax
Elfquest
  • Skywise
  • Nightfall
  • Teir
Others
  • Susan Ivanova (B5)
  • Teal'c (SG1)
  • Inara (Firefly)
  • Willow (BTVS)

Um, that's all I can think of at the moment...

Attention: Firefly fans

Just in case you don't know, there's a fan-based project for a Virtual Second season going on that will start up in January, I believe.  [info]freedom_is_what.  Go check it out. :)

Firefly quote

So, chatting with Foodie on IM, and she was saying this quote from the Firefly episode Heart of Gold reminded her of Sirius:

Jayne: Man, my John Thomas is gonna pop off and fly around the room, there's so much tasty here.
Wash: Would be you get your most poetical about your pecker.

I have to agree.  It's a very Sirius thing, really.  Maybe not quite his wording, but definately true of him, too.  With Remus or possibly James as the one chiding him for it.  What does everyone else think?

Drabbles for OTP Meme

So almost no one guessed any of my OTPs, but I did write a few Drabbles, so I thought I'd share them. 

If you'd like to guess and get a drabble of your own, the list is here.

[info]drusillas_rain guessed Harry/Draco, and asked for a BTVS drabble with the ship of my choice, and the prompt "November rain"

Foodie, my co-author and main beta, got a bunch right, but I'm keeping the ones she guessed to myself, since she didn't post, so they're still up for grabs...

Gacked from [info]ponderosa121 -
The OTP meme.

I list my fandoms, and you guess what my OTPs are in them.  In some cases, I do have more than one, but I will indicate.  And--for added incentive, I will write drabbles for those who guess one right.

Another Meme

Gacked from [info]millefiori

I know love-ins aren't as much fun as hatefests, but i thought we'd give it a try this week, okay? immediately contrary to last week's top five of hate and rage, this week's is top five fictional characters you love without bounds. not, of course, necessarily romantic-type love; just the fictional characters, movies or tv or books or whatever, who're your favorites. the ones you'll jump to protect or defend if somebody slags them off. you know.

  1. Draco
  2. Snape
  3. Neville
  4. Inara
  5. Deanna Troi
I'll defend if I must, but there's my list...
