I tried to put a cut inside a cut in my 2014 fandom meme, and it caused the entry to stop displaying after "fandom boyfriend" if you got there by clicking the LJ cut. I have fixed that, so if you missed the following, you might want to go back there:
fandom girlfriend
biggest squee moment
most missed of your old fandoms
The fandom you haven't tried yet, but want to
And my own invented category: Show that I continued to watch despite frustration

We apologize for the inconvenience—but "fandom girlfriend" and "biggest squee moment" are two of my favorite answers!

Hello there! I know I haven't been around a lot lately, but I found a fun meme to play with, so please respond!

From [livejournal.com profile] awanderingbard:Comment with a story I've written, and I will tell you one thing I knew, learned, or wondered about while writing the story that didn't make it onto the page.

My fanfic can be found on LJ using the tag fanfic--or clicking here. That includes even my most recent little stories (ha! as if I ever wrote a truly "little" story). I haven't updated Aelfgyfu's Mead Hall recently, but that's the only place to read most of my longer stories/novels.

All these stories involved things that never made it into writing or made it and were later cut, so don't hesitate to ask about a short one, a long one, or a long-ago one.

I posted this yesterday, but things went kind of blooey on me, so I'm not sure if everyone saw it and no one felt moved to respond (quite understandable!), or no one saw it because it showed up among posts that had been made hours earlier. (That's how it showed up when I went to my Friends Page; I'd posted it at 9:30 pm, and it appeared before posts made at 6 pm.) If at first you don't fricassee, fry, fry a hen.

Back to the meme again:

Pick a number, any number, and comment with it, and I'll tell you something I think is awesome about you. :) Comments are screened.

The original post is here in case you've forgotten your number: you can see your own comments, but no one else's.

My post to the first few respondents is here. I've since received more numbers! So here goes:

4: You are amazingly generous with gifts and fic and compliments. I love that we enjoy and laugh about so many of the same things. I really enjoy your stories and other . . . creative works. You have a wonderful sense of humor!


I have two 22s. I will respond to them by date. You can look back at your posts to see which you are, if you're in any doubt (or ask me, if you get desperate! You can PM me).

22 (responded on the original, screened-comments-only post, 24 Nov): You tell a great story. Whether it's something at work or adventures at home, you really know how to relate an incident. I wish fewer of the stories were about things that were aggravating or painful to you, simply because you have surely had enough aggravation and pain to last the next few years! I'm glad you share.

22 (responded on a later, unscreened post, 27 Nov.): I don't hear from you very often as I used to do, but I'm glad you still make time to check in with me! You're loads of fun, and you have one particular icon that I especially like, even if it's a bit sick (it looks like an image from a cartoon or comic strip). We may have originally bonded over fandom, but it turns out we have other interesting things to share, and I'm very glad. I've learned some interesting things from you!


27: You are one of the best betas ever—you are so fast, and so accurate, and so helpful that I can't quite find the right superlative (but you probably could). You write great fic yourself, and you're very generous with your time. I'm sorry I didn't get to meet you when I was out your way earlier this year, but I'm hoping some other time it will work out.


57: I have had a great time with you, especially when we were playing in the SGA universe and even commenting on Malozzi's blog! We had a better plan for saving Carson than he did, didn't we? I think we had a few other tidbits along the way! You were the first LJ person I met in real life that I'd only known on LJ before we met. I hope we'll get together again some day.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow denizens of the US!

A few days ago, I posted these meme rules:
Pick a number, any number, and comment with it, and I'll tell you something I think is awesome about you. :) Comments are screened.

Only three people gave me numbers! It's not too late; I can make another post. You can still comment on the original post, and I'll make another post like this at a later date.

15: You are always here to share a laugh or offer comfort or empathize. You give me virtual hugs, you make some great posts, and I can't remember LJ without you. (Have we always been friends? Must be.) You're an amazingly great-hearted person.

31: I love that we share many of the same fandoms, though some are obviously connected to each other and others aren't. I love your fic (and have to make efforts not to nag you for more, because I don't want you to feel guilty just because I'm greedy). Sorry we didn't get to meet in person as I'd hoped, but maybe some day!

76: You are one of the very best fanfic writers I've seen. I'm very glad we have a mutual fandom again! You've also made some amazing posts about where you live now and where you grew up.

From [livejournal.com profile] sholio:

Pick a number, any number, and comment with it, and I'll tell you something I think is awesome about you. :) Comments are screened.

I didn't quite get how this would work until I saw it in practice: the LJ user never unscreens the numbers. No one ever knows your number but you and me. I will after a bit post an answer with a bunch of numbers and a message to each person by number, and only you will know which one identifies you.

[livejournal.com profile] sholio got it from [livejournal.com profile] gravity, who apparently got many 13s and 42s, so you may want to avoid such popular numbers.

So pick a number! I have Comment Screening turned on for All Comments, which I've never done before.

Any fandom, any title—give me as much or as little as you want!

I've done this before, but a long time ago. From [livejournal.com profile] caffienekitty:

1. Reply to this post with "UNICORNS", 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.


Below the cut to spare the flist )

. . . so I did the Fanfic Personality test.

Your result for The Fan Fiction Personality Test...

The True Fan

OOC is blasphemy, canon is everything.

Once you fall in love with a movie, book or TV series, you are loyal like an old dog. You take fanfiction quite seriously and use it as a substitute after the canon run out.


You are probably a walking dictionary of your favourite fandom and you are picky about what you write and read. The closer to the "real thing" fanfiction is, the more you like it.


You would rather explore a character in all depth, see new sides and learn more about them than creating new characters or mix up the situations they are in.

Take The Fan Fiction Personality Test at OkCupid


Note: I fixed a little of the grammar in my result because it bothered me too much the way it was.

More details behind the cut )
