If I were a fictional character, how would the fandom misinterpret me?

(I mean, I feel like fandom-otp-that-will-never-be-canon is the obvious answer, but if you want to elaborate on that, feel free.)

1. Fixed password on DW so that crossposting to LJ will work again.
2. Let's try this talking meme thing? I will attempt to answer prompts in multiple sentences, but that's about the extent of the promises that I'm making.

Pick a date in January. Pick a topic. On the date you choose I will post something about that topic. It can be fandom-related or it can branch into hobbies, books, places, objects, academic matters, cats, beverages, whatever you want. If the topic is something I don't know about or have no opinions on, I may ask you to make a second choice. If you want to request more than one topic, pick a different day for each.

(I'm aware I keep tossing memes out there and not necessarily responding. I'm trying really hard to jumpstart the creative part of my brain.

BSC has proven to be one of the best bets; you're welcome to try anything that feels likely -- the Jossverses, RPFy things, Harry Potter... idk.)

Pick up the nearest book to you. Turn to page 45. The first sentence describes your sex life in 2012. Via [livejournal.com profile] vassilissa

"The problem of the authority of Scripture is part of the wider crisis of authority in modern Western culture."

This is why I will never, ever get laid, isn't it?

(The romance novel is probably equidistant and vaguely more satisfying:

"We came down here to take out a boat, but I have always had an aversion to being a wallflower."

Although oddly specific.)

Also, I remembered two other major fannish accomplishments from my exceptionally long haitus: I read A Song of Ice and Fire (and realized I'd been calling it "Song of Fire and Ice" for something like three years. Whoops.) And I read most Robin Hobb's Realm of the Elderings (Farseer, Liveship Traders, and Tawny Man; I think I'll leave the Rain Wilds until the series is complete). I bet you'll never guess who my favorite character is?!

I am taking a week and a half off work starting NOW. The amount of glee this gave me was indicative of how stressed I was without even realizing it. But I will take care of all the stressy things, and I will move all the things from here to New Apartment, and on Friday, I WILL HAZ AN ELIZABETH! ("Speaking of how we aren't dating, we are sharing a bed, right?")

So to celebrate my vacation, let's do a meme, eh?

1) Make a list of fifteen characters first, and keep it to yourself for the moment. (That way you're not leading the questions asked to fit the characters.)

2) Ask your flist to post questions in the comments.

For example:

'1, 9 and 15 are chosen by a prophecy to save the world from 4. Do they succeed?'
'Under what circumstances might 5 and 7 fall in love?'

3)After your flist has asked enough questions, round them up and answer them using the fifteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.

I picked my list by looking around the room. I carefully didn't put any children or Muppets on it because many of you have filthy minds and I like you like that.

None of the characters in my icon are on the list, because that would be TOO WEIRD.
wisdomeagle: (midnight musings)
Because I am moody and meh.

I plugged "Bridget Jones Cleans All The Things" into the I Write Like meme and got, alas, not Helen Fielding:

I write like
Stephen King

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

Amoral Boundaries and Gone Hollywood get me H.P. Lovecraft. My srs bznz fic r horror?

Abby's Hanukkah Tales! gets me P.G. Wodehouse, which is at least the right genre.

Okay then!

Porn Battle 10 is collecting prompts! Woo! I will go leave sexy prompts to cheer self up before church council meeting.

A meme was born in Icarus's journal. I don't usually participate this kind of meme, but this one has a "why" clause and that makes it automatically better. Meme origin.

If you're religious and support gay marriage, then paste this meme in your LJ.

I am [insert religion here] and I support gay marriage.

Why? Because... [answer].

I am Christian, and I support gay marriage.

Why? Because I'm a lesbian. Because my pastor is a lesbian, my mentors and role models and heroes growing up were lesbians, because [redacted family members for public post, but there are a lot of them] are lesbians, because growing up, I never saw any division between religious folks and glbt folks, because the first six and ten and a dozen glbt people I knew were not only Christians but serious, church-going, seminary-attending, preacher-wanna-bes.

I say this over and over again because Icarus is right -- NOT all religious people --- not all Christians -- are socially conservative. There are glbt Christians. I'm one of them, and I know many of them, and there's not a contradiction there. I declared my lesbianism before I declared my Christianity, and in some ways it's more central to my identity, but both are so important to me, to how I struture my political and social thought.

So. As a USian citizen, I support equality marriage because of all the rights and privileges given to married couples. Because many GLB people choose assimilation, and civil marriage is a powerful normalizing sign. Because I'm glad that [redacted family members] are legally married and I want every same-sex couple all across the country and the world to have those same rights. It's a justice issue, and as a Christian, I believe in justice.

As a Christian, I believe in marriage because I believe in making promises before God. I'm not quite clear in my head on pre-marital sex, and have engaged in it once or twice myself (*g*) but marriage is a different level of commitment, a different level of responsibility, an accountability to which people in all kinds of relationships should be held if they choose.

If my girlfriend and I, who've been together for five years, continue to be together, I'd like us to be able to decide together whether we want to make our commitment formal. I know that I would want to make such a commitment before God and my church family. I am so, so fortunate that I've been involved with churches and ministers who would absolutely be willing to facilitate that commitment, to know that, regardless of civil inequalities and injustices, it would be possible for me to be married in my eyes, in my partner's eyes, in my parents' eyes, and in God's eyes, which is all that ultimately matters.

1. Does anyone know if there's a [livejournal.com profile] 50bookchallenge community centered around the 50 states? I.e., for every state, read one book set in that state by an author from that state? Or maybe one focused around the EU states, or the UN states? Because that would be cool.

2. First seen via [livejournal.com profile] astrogirl2:
The rules:
Take a picture of yourself right now.
Don't change your clothes, don't fix your hair...just take a picture.
Post that picture with NO editing.
Post these instructions with your picture

It's been an hour or so since I saw the meme, but I promise I haven't primped in any way. Mebbe combed my hair a wee.
ugh )

3. I'm not really fond of quoting shows out of context. Makes me less gleeful when the quotes pop up in context. But meme says we're meant to quote the Buffyverse so here are some from eps we watched recently:

WESLEY: I am from the Watcher's Academy in southern Hampshire. In fact, I happen to be head boy.

CORDELIA: Gee, I wonder how you earned that nickname.

WESLEY: A lot of effort, I don't mind saying. (Angel 4.06 "Spin the Bottle")


Buffy: I, I don't understand. Was it m-me? Was I not good?

Angel: You were great. Really. I thought you were a pro. (Buffy the Vampire Slayer 2.14 "Innocence")

(Thx to Buffyworld and Buffy vs. Angel for transcripts.)

Not meaning to worry anyone by dropping off the face of the LJ. Keep writing up half-posts and then not posting them.

PIMP: [livejournal.com profile] 3some_ficfest: like it says on the tin. It seems the new way to do ficathons is prompt-battle style. I approve. It means I don't actually have to commit to writing things.

MEME: Y'all asked questions about my list of characters here. List of characters and answers to questions under the cut:

Most recently via [livejournal.com profile] astrogirl2:
1) Make a list of 15 characters.
2) Assign each character a number.
3) Without telling anyone who's on the list or the character's assigned number, get questions from your flist about what they'd like to know about them, e.g., "If 5 + 9 had to rob a bank, could they pull it off?" (The more random the better!)
4) Post the answers and who was who on the list.
