Filched from [livejournal.com profile] shayenne. Comment on this post and I will give you five things/subjects I associate with you. Then post this on your LJ and elaborate on the subjects given.


For [livejournal.com profile] shayenne:

Fandom over the years

Feels like I've been there, done that, and sold the t-shirt for profit -- at least in J/C Land. There were some really good times, some bad times, and some downright ugly times which, among other things, made me leave for a couple of years. The break has done me a wealth of good, though. And having come back, I can now enjoy what this particular fandom has to offer without the hassle of being too deeply involved, too much a part of it.

BSG

I'm head over heels in love with this show which is amazing since about a year and a half ago I would have sworn BSG wasn't for me. That'll teach me never to judge a TV show by watching a single episode out of order. But, I'm a goner now. Watched three and half seasons in three weeks flat, that's how crazy I really am over this one.

My hair

The bane of my existence and my best physical feature at the same time. It's unruly, it's frizzy, and resists any but the most relentless efforts to style it. But if, on the rare occasion, it actually behaves it's beautiful. And it's so, so full and thick. Back when I was still a kid almost total strangers would just touch it to see if it was real. I cured them of that urge as quickly as possible. I still hate it to this day if someone goes there without my expressed permission. The BF has got it by default of course.

Queens of Smut

It's been ages and I think the term is no longer applicable. But, it came about when I was writing J/C fanfiction like there was no tomorrow. One of my favorite authors to this date are Micbo and Marden, the original Queens of Smut named such for their sheer prolific and hot NC-17 fic. And while they'd long moved on, [livejournal.com profile] kadiluv and I thought it a good idea to keep carrying the torch so to speak. Of course, we also were crazy like hell and apparently making up for lack of a love life or something. *g*

Cheerfulness

Hmm. I don't necessarily see myself as cheerful. It's more like I deal best with RL and Murphy, the bastard, by using humor and/or sarcasm. It's sort of a lifeline to keep me from snapping. So if I ever lose my humor, run -- it is as bad as it looks.

For [livejournal.com profile] joywriter_1980:

Gaius Baltar

He's the center of his own universe and I love him for it. Well that and his hair, and his body, and sex appeal, and his accent... He's not as clean-cut as Lee Adama and that makes him more complex, more fun. I never quite know what to expect from him. In that regard he's the same as Roslin -- to me anyway. Just on opposite ends of the spectrum.

Flat-sharing

Not my thing in the long run, but this is working out much better than I anticipated. There's advantages to not having to do all chores yourself. It frees up time and lets me have some fun -- like elaborating on these things. Still, I'd like back sole possession of a bathroom.

James Spader

If I were still into rotating tag lines on my email, about 85% of them would be James Spader quotes. The man does humor and sarcasm like no other actor I know of (and, if you scroll up, we've already established that I'm a sucker for humor and sarcasm). He also doesn't see very much without his glasses which must have made working on the BL set all kinds of fun.

Friendship

It's very important to me. But because at the same time I suck at keeping in touch with people, I go to great lengths to make sure that my friends know this about me and not think I'm no longer interested. I am.

Vampires

I've a thing for creatures of the lore, not just vampires. But, they especially lend themselves to being explored in all kinds of directions by book and film. I'm also a sucker for werewolves which makes any kind of book/movie that deals with both of these all the more interesting to me.

For [livejournal.com profile] sira01:

Coffee

The finest organic suspicion ever devised! I beat the-- Well, that wasn't me but once upon a time it could have been. There was a time (incidentally coinciding with my discovery of and involvement in J/C Land) when it was the one thing that kept me going through the night. I still love and drink it these days, but my daily intake has gone way down. *eyes mug* Well, mostly...

Shipping

All over the place, really. It's just that I don't normally subject you people to those dark recesses of my overactive imagination. I did enjoy C/Neelix. Nuff said.

Friends all over the world

It's awesome! It broadens your horizon on so many levels. The time difference sucks royally, though.

Lack of sleep

It's anti-proportional to the squee factor of my obsession(s) of choice. The more I enjoy something (like BSG for example), the less sleep I get. Strangely, on the days that I can sleep in, I usually don't. Don't ask. Please.

Voices in my head

Constant companions, but there's two kinds. One kind distinctly sounds like characters I adore and/or ship. This basically includes the entire Voyager main characters plus a couple of choice lower-decks as well as several BSG characters such as William Adama, Starbuck, Baltar. The other voice is the snarky kind. It's definitely my own voice, but it differs in cadence, word choice, and it's usually brutally honest. Good thing I don't always speak my mind. ^^

For [livejournal.com profile] nimue47:

Berlin vs. Osna

Berlin wins, hands down. The only two things Osna has going for itself are the vicinity to the BF and the distance to my family. Chances are I'll be back in or near Berlin in the not too distant future. Good thing the BF wants to end up there as well, ain't it?

Being the middle child

Used to suck so bad. My brother was allowed to do things I wasn't because he was older. My sister got away with most things because she was the youngest. And I was stuck in the middle. But, you know, I only really felt this way as a teenager and I suppose that was the hormones doing the thinking -- or not, as the case might be. Nowadays it just doesn't matter.

The bush (remember that summer that ended in OeldeCon?)

Damn. That'll just never go way, will it. *lol* I still can't believe I missed the turn and hugged the bush instead. I just had to have witnesses, naturally. I also can't quite believe that your mom's bicycle survived relatively unharmed.

Addictions

I've got a lot of those. The only one I actually managed to conquer was my addiction to smoking. Everything else, from coffee to TV shows to the English language (yes, I'm addicted to it), I'll probably continue to be addicted to until the day I die. Not that I'm complaining, mind you.

Writing

Er, what's that thing you're talking about? It requires time and energy and focus. The first two are already in short supply these days but focus is the real problem. I mean, writing is easy without it, finishing isn't. But, I still enjoy writing. It's fun to have those voices in my head give me snappy dialog word by word, including intonation and cadence. It's like watching a movie play out in front of your inner eye and writing down what you see and hear. Fun, that.

For [livejournal.com profile] k8_rab:

Being Ym's sort of doppelganger

That shocked me big time -- for all of two seconds. Once I've got over it, I enjoyed it immensely. Haven't actually stopped yet and probably never will. We're so much alike, I'd call it scary if I weren't getting such a kick out of it. With her I hardly ever have to explain what I mean because she understands me better than I do myself. It's just plain awesome to meet someone -- online and from another country, at that -- who so closely resembles yourself in so many ways. I no longer question this; I take it for granted by now.

Q

My all-time favorite Star Trek character by a long shot. He's impossible. Arrogant, self-centered, obsessed with Starfleet captains, and so, so much fun even when he's being bad. He was supposed to be The Villain of TNG but when that didn't work out, he became comic relief. I'm glad for it because he's just wacky enough to make my muse sit up and beg for more. Also, John de Lancie and Patrick Stewart as well as Kate Mulgrew have awesome on-screen chemistry. Watching Q always, always without fail brightens my day.

Getting hooked on BSG

It hit me like an eighteen-wheeler. I went from not being interested to being obsessed in the blink of eye and all of that happened on a whim, at that. To this day I don't quite know what made me cave in and request BSG of my flist. Sure, they were going crazy over it, but that was nothing new. The show had been around for years now, after all. So I may just never know why I suddenly took an interest. But giving this a real try I did and the rest, as the say, is history. I'm mad about this show, even more so than I was about Voyager when it originally aired.

Procrastination

It's an art form and I've got it down pat. Let me give you an example: Today, I was going to read A/R fanfic, possibly write A/R fanfic (or at least try), make a zillion BSG icons, clean up my room, do the laundry, clear the bathroom (as it's my turn), watch the lastest BSG episode, and possibly call my sister. Out of all of these I've only managed to watch the latest BSG and make three BSG icons and only because I'm so completely obsessed with this show that it even beats procrastination. Other than that, I've been spending the last couple of hours spamming other people's LJ's as well as emailing back and forth with [livejournal.com profile] sira01, none of which was part of my plans for today. And right now I'm procrastinating from procrastination by replying to your prompts. I stand corrected; it's not an art from, it's a way of life. :D

Insanity

Birth defect or blessing, depending on who you're talking to. But since you're talking me, we'll go with blessing, shall we? Insanity is a way of life and it complements procrastination beautifully. Also, it lets me be myself and have a good laugh while I'm at it. Who can say that about themselves?

Very interesting answers! Thank you. :-)

C/Neelix??? And they say I am insane and scary. *lol*

You hear Baltar in your head? Veeeery scary. Although I have to admit that especially Roslin and Cottle have found nice comfortable places in my muddled brain nowadays. *lol*

I loooooove Cottle. And I think the three BSG stories with Cottle are my best BSG stories yet. I love the grumpy teddy bear. *g*

Oh, must go read them! Then make Cottle icons. And Baltar(star Galactica) icons. And just plain BSG icons, period. I just don't know where to start. *sigh*

Make icons, forget the stories. *lol*
But if you want to read some nice Cottle ones, I'm sure I can drag out some. I know at least one ad hoc that features A/R through the eyes of Jack Cottle. Only reread it three days ago. *lol*

Procrastinating from procrastination is so much fun, and it's definitely a way of life. As is insanity. Basically, I'm agreeing with you, but that's not at all surprising, is it?
