Karl Urban Pickspam

To cheer me up.  Yes, I am still here, just in a really bad place right now.  Not ignoring people so much as trying to deal with a lot, so I'm sorry if I haven't responded to something.  *snugs you all*

Reasons for loving Karl Urban:
Massive Picspam behind the cut--you have been warned )

Any questions? :D

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...

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?

Nominate 5 dates to be included on a multi-fandom calendar. For example, the date of Star Trek's premiere.

Well, the easy ones are:
July 31 - Harry Potter's birthday
and
September 22 - Bilbo and Frodo Baggins' birthdays

The question is, are there any other good dates out there?

Well, there's always August 4th, which is the day Skynet was supposed to have gone online according to the Terminator in the second movie.

Or May 8, which is the founding of the United Federation of Planets.

Oh, and another Harry Potter: October 31st - Voldemort's first fall.

Not the happiest of dates, but I think it belongs there. :D

Anyone out there read any Melaine Rawn?

All this talk of ROTK EE is making me think of how I thought Miranda Otto would make the perfect actress to play Sioned if they ever did a version of Dragon Prince.  She's exactly how I imagine her.  Tall, slender, and she has THE perfect hair for Sioned.  They wouldn't have to do anything to it.

Fandoms

So, I don't think I ever really did this, and seeing as how I just put my name into the Fandom Friending Frenzy over at [info]mctabby's lj, I thought I should post this somewhere people can actually see it..

My biggest current fandom is Harry Potter.  It is probably the most involved I have ever been in a fandom before.  I read & rec, and I write Fan Fic like mad.  But I love it.  I honestly have trouble remembering life before HP.

Beyond HP there is LOTR.  This has always been a background note in my life, even though I only just managed to finish the series.  I tried to write a Frodo-fic once, but I never finished it.  I think that was pretty much the extent of my time in the fandom, though I do read the occasional fic.

Elfquest is probably the last fandom I went as nuts over as HP.  I went through a period where all I did was create characters, make lists, and draw elves.  (my only fan-art ever, I think.)  If you like LOTR, and elves, I highly recommend it if you've never checked it out.  This was the very first fandom I ever wrote fan fic for, though I had no idea that that was what it was called, and every story had at least one Mary-Sue in it, so none of it was worth publishing online.

Star Trek is the only other Fandom I actually still claim (even though I no longer watch...) that I have written finished fan fic for.  My co-author and I wrote a two-part Janeway/Chakotay romance fic, the first part was called Captainella, and the second was Neelix in Boots.  It was lots of fun, but I look at it now and just see how flawed it was.

Beyond that, I read the occasional Buffy or Forever Knight fic, and I also consider myself a fan of Star Wars (the first three films only, really),  and V, the original 80's mini-series, though  I hear that they're working on a remake.  I also currently watch Lost, and consider myself a fan.  But that's so new, and I'm not sure how deep I'll get into it.

To everyone here from [info]mctabby, hello!
