This is why I almost never have a good character assignment in my friend groups. You know, when your friends are talking about a fandom and they try to decide who is like which character? Yeah, I'm nearly impossible, and this quiz seems to agree. :-) My thanks to [livejournal.com profile] pepper_field for the link!

Via [personal profile] rydra_wong and [personal profile] executrix: The Up Goer Five meme in which you describe your canon, using only the ten hundred most common words (and their derivatives).

See Up Goer Five and the Up Goer Five Text Editor.

I should probably have done something else, but I couldn't help thinking that Stargate would be delightfully challenging.

Star Door Team One )

Notes:

1. "Earth" is not allowed. This surprised me.

2. It took me forever to realize that "human" was allowed, so at first I was using "people of the type that live on our ball of ground and water."

3. I'd love to see what other people did for both Stargate and other fandoms.

Okay, I finally finished all the meme requests, so I figured I should take a break from the Olympics and do a roundup. I had so much fun with this one--thank you all for playing along. Links below go to the thread for each request, so you can see which prompts I couldn't fill, just for fun. *g*

[livejournal.com profile] mrspollifax asked for Sam/Caldwell.

[livejournal.com profile] jafacakes asked for Sam/Rodney.

[livejournal.com profile] macgyvergal asked for Jack/Janet.

[personal profile] ultranos asked for GLaDOS and the Bird.

[personal profile] sixbeforelunch asked for Darcy/Elizabeth.

[personal profile] besyd asked for Hailey/Grogan.

[personal profile] zats_clear asked for Daniel Jackson/Dana Scully.

Guys! I haven't done a meme in a while. Want to help me play?

Give me a pairing that I have never written, and I will give you at least 100 words about them, either meta or fic. If I don't know the pairing in question, I'll make something up or give you another shot.

Note: If you're not sure which pairings I have written, don't feel like you have to devote your afternoon toward research--unless it's Sam/Jack. Because really.

I can't even believe how much posting this is stressing me out. Hello, Trout! It's a MEME.

Snagged from [livejournal.com profile] annienau08

Give me a pairing and I'll tell you:

1. When or if I started shipping them:
2. What I think their challenge is:
3. What makes me happy about them:
4. What makes me sad about them:
5. What moment I wish had never happened:
6. Who I'd be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other:
7. My happily ever after for them:


Here are some ideas for fandoms: Stargate SG-1, Sanctuary, Fringe, Lost, CSI, Star Wars, Iron Man (movie), The Pretender, Leverage.

[Comment to this post, and I will list seven things I want you to talk about. They might make sense or they might be totally random. Then post that list, with your commentary, to your journal. Other people can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.]

[livejournal.com profile] aurora_novarum asked me about five of my icons, which I will blather on about below.

If you want to play,

1. Reply to this post with "tattoine", and I will pick five of your icons.

2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.

3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.

4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.


Icons Ahoy! )

First and most importantly, a happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] pepper_field! I hope it is a fabulous one.

Sanctuary: spoilers for Pax Romana, Hangover, and One Night )

SGU, on the other hand, is making me wish it weren't canceled. These last few eps have been engaging--still darker than SG-1, but with some levity, and I feel like I finally have a good grasp of most of the characters. I haven't even wanted to throw Young OR Rush out an airlock recently! It's a marked improvement. :-)

(SGU, btw, is why I haven't started my Rewatch of SG-1 season two. I had six episodes to catch up on.)


Meme! I haven't done one of these in a while! Snagged from [livejournal.com profile] grav_ity.

Comment with a fandom and I will answer the following:

One True Pairing Ship:
Favorite Canon Ship:
"If this happens I'll stab my eyes out with a spork" Ship:
"You are one sick bastard" Ship:
"I dabble a little" Ship:
"It's like a car crash" Ship:
"Tickles my fancy but not sold just yet" Ship:
"Makes no canon sense but why the Hell not" Ship:
"Everyone else loves it but I just don't feel it" Ship:

Once again, I find myself needing something to pass the time on a Friday. I thought a meme might be nice, but couldn't decide which one to pick.

Therefore, for TODAY ONLY, pick one of the following three memes and I will comply as quickly as I possibly can. There are no guarantees--if I cannot complete the meme today, it may never happen!

1. Give me two of the most outrageous prompts you can think of: silly, cliche, or just plain absurd, and I'll pick one and write it in three hundred words or less. Previous Memeage.

2. Comment with the name of a female character (in any show, movie, book, comic, etc that you think I'm familiar with) and I'll tell you one thing I love about her. In return, you can do the same in your journal (if you like!). Previous Memeage.

3. Comment with a story I've written, and I will tell you something about the story that didn't make it onto the page.Previous Memeage.

I totally forgot that once upon a time, [livejournal.com profile] annienau08 asked me about icons! Unfortunately, I don't think I can offer to pick icons for people today; I've got kind of a crazy week ahead and ought to be doing something else right now, but... well, ICONS. And pontification! :-)

Weather, Invisibility is in the Mind, Green is Pretty, Smug Sam/Teal'c, Hip Bumps, and Sam&Thor 4EVER )

Three things make a post, right?

1. I'm reading The Picture of Dorian Gray, only a decade or so behind schedule, since it's one of those books "everyone" reads in school. It's turning interesting, finally, and I think the ending will be killer. *looks carefully around to make sure no one is fuming at her for spoilers OR bad jokes* Look, it was first published in 1890, people.

The real reason I'm writing about it at all is because the picture on the front of my B&N cheap-o edition totally makes me think about Severus Snape. Yes. I am that deep.

2. [personal profile] pepper is pouring out awesomeness on her DW journal lately, and today she brings us Jack's Quick Guide to Genderswap Grammar, with an account of the incident that prompted it.

3. I was pointed to this: Fictional Love Meme. Basically, you sign up with your username, and then other people write you love notes as fictional characters. I couldn't resist!

I'm feeling the need for a Friday distraction, so...

Give me a show, and I'll tell you 1) One of my favorite things about the show, 2) One of my least favorite things, 3) My favorite character, and 4) My least favorite character.

I suppose if I haven't seen the show, I can tell you why not, or I can answer the above with lies. *g*

I know I still owe a post about the wonders of beautiful P3X-556* British Columbia, and I will get to it soon. Honestly, it's the photos. I have to sort them, and crop them, and upload them, and then link them... it's where my reports always break down.

Lately my main fannish interaction has been complaining about not writing fic. However, there are two things going on that will SAVE me!

[livejournal.com profile] annerbhp is bringing [livejournal.com profile] dayofindulgence back for The Day of Ficamnesty, July 25th. With three easy options--Total Victory, Reaffirmation, and Exorcism--, the Day of Ficamnesty means no one is left out! I intend TOTAL VICTORY. Just sayin'.

Another cool ficathon going on is [community profile] 36_stratagems / [livejournal.com profile] 36_stratagems, which is a ficathon with prompts from the thirty-six stratagems. Sign-ups end tomorrow, so if you're considering it, now is the time!

In other news... [livejournal.com profile] annienau08 and I... well, in a moment of brilliant clarity and awesome timing, we signed up for... AT5! That's right. Next February, this little fishie will be swimming** across the pond to join the few, the proud, the broke on the epic journey to bask in the awesomeness of Amanda Tapping! And maybe see London. *grins*

Finally, [personal profile] pepper just gave me a Cliff/Marry/Snog trio: Tony Stark, Pepper Potts, and James Rhodes (totally appropriate considering it is ALMOST MAY). I'd snog Tony, marry Pepper, and cliff Rhodey. Frankly, I think Tony would be a lousy husband but an awesome snogger, and while Rhodey is hot, Pepper has better shoes. ;-)


*May not be actual planetary designation.
**Hopefully the little fishie will actually be flying. As long as no more volcanoes erupt.

I've been hitting my head against the writing wall lately, and I've decided there's only one cure: a meme.

Give me two of the most outrageous prompts you can think of: silly, cliche, or just plain absurd, and I'll pick one and write it in three hundred words or less.

[livejournal.com profile] annerbhp, do you think this would count as finishing something? *g*

It's Monday, and I am NOT bored, but I am in need of some fun. Thus, it is meme-time!

Comment with the name of a female character (in any show, movie, book, comic, etc that you think I'm familiar with) and I'll tell you one thing I love about her. In return, you can do the same in your journal (if you like!).
