In your own space, tell us about 3 fandom resources you use or enjoy.

honestly? mostly wikis for the fandoms. beyond fanwork creation, i don't tend to do quite as much general engagement. so - wikis it is.

In your own space, resurrect an old meme. Have fun with it! Which is the goofiest meme you can think of? Put on your party hat and be silly!!

this one is from way back - i found it on my imported-from-LJ entries from 2006. imma just post the meme here. i may actually do it myself in a couple days.

Choose twelve characters from your fandoms, then answer the questions under the cut. Do not look at the questions beforehand.




1. Who would make a better college professor, 6 or 11? What subjects would they teach?


2. Do you think 4 is hot? How hot?


3. 12 sends 8 on a mission. What is it, and does it succeed?


4. What is or would be 9's favorite book?


5. Would it make more sense for 2 to swear fealty to 6, or the other way around?


6. For some reason, 5 is looking for a roommate. Should he share a studio apartment with 9 or with 10?


7. 2, 7 and 12 have dinner together. Where do they go, and what do they discuss?



8. 3 challenges 10 to a duel. What happens?


9. If 1 stole 8's most precious possession, how would he get it back?


10. Suggest a title for a story in which 7 and 12 both attain what they most desire.


11. What kind of plot device would you use if you wanted 4 and 1 to work together?


12. If 7 visited you for the weekend, how would you get along?


13. If you could command 3 to perform any one task or service for you, what would it be?


14. Does anyone on your friends list write or draw 11?


15. If 2 had to choose sides between 4 and 5, which would it be?


16. What might 10 shout while charging into battle?


17. If you chose a song to represent 8, which song would you choose?


18. 1, 6 and 12 are having dim sum at a Chinese restaurant. There is only one scallion pancake left, and they all reach for it at the same time. Who gets to eat it?


19. What might be a good pick-up line for 2 to use on 10?


20. What would 5 most likely be arrested for?


21. What is 6's secret?


22. If 11 and 9 were racing to a destination, who would get there first?


24. "1 and 9 reluctantly team up to save the world from the threat posed by 4's sinister secret organization. 11 volunteers to help them, but it is later discovered that 11 is actually a spy for 4. Meanwhile, 4 has kidnapped 12 in an attempt to force their surrender. Following the wise advice of 5, they seek out 3, who gives them what they need to complete their quest." What title would you give this fic? Name three people on your friends list who might read it. Name one person who should write it.


25. If you had to walk home through a bad neighbourhood late at night, would you feel safer in the company of 7 or 8?

In your own space, create a fanwork.

In your own space, write a love letter to Fandom in general, to a particular fandom, to a trope, a relationship, a character, creator, episode, or it could be your fandom friends.

fandom is still weird and ever-expanding. there's always something new showing up - either all the way new, or new-to-you style - to jump into and get excited about. and it gonna keep on doing that.

i think this is p much what i write every year... maybe next year my brain will be back online and come up with something new. XD

In your own space, brag about yourself. Tell us what things you've done that you're proud of; the things that make you the wonderful person you are.

* i can tell you the plot of any original MacGyver episode from the ep-title (there are 1 or 2 that trip me up, but i got the rest). kind of a useless skill, but who knows, maybe i'll win a trivia contest b/c of it one day.

* does watching the whole of the MCU (minus the Hulk) more times than is probably healthy count? i've watched through it in so many permutations - release date order, chronological order (this one gives the IW/EG 1-2 and it can be a little rough, but story-wise is makes way more sense than with Capt Marvel between them), reverse order, only the ones with Iron Man in them, only the ones with Spidey, watching to look for some rando thing about Bucky, skipping around via RNG selection - whatever. dood, when you work from home, you make your own fun for the background noise - and since i know all the plots, i can have it playing on the tv behind me and they're not distracting, except when the super cool parts are coming up - like watching Tony slam his stupid ass into the wall the first time he tries out his rocket boots (repulsor boots? whatever).

* i am fucking EXCELLENT at sliding in at the last-last second for [community profile] fan_flashworks challenges. nearly every damned time i'm sliding in Indiana Jones rolling under the big stone door and snagging his hat style. i have legit posted 17 word fics (usually Harvey-Mike banter from Suits) to get my post in. b/c sometimes those ideas you thought you had just run away.

In your own space, create a wishlist.

honestly? fanart of any of my fandoms - MCU, Dresden, Suits, Highlander - that's just for me. doesn't even have to be from any of my fic (though that'd be fine too). i can't draw - i can copy and follow directions, but i can't just picture a thing in my head and then make it appear as art. (stick doods, i got u, but anything w/ dimension? lol no)

fic, art, what-have-you for any varied combination of Harry & Carlos (Dresden Files) - friendy stuff, smutty stuff, riding on a dinosaur stuff - whatever.

if anyone knows where i can get a copy of Rock Band 3 for xbox 360 for a non-stupid price (like $20 USD or less), that'd be fab (my copy is jacked up from an unfortunate console-falling-over incident).

In your own space, create your own challenge.

imma do the same one i do every year: get out your action figures, dolls, toys, whatever and do stories with them. even better - take photos of the stories (hell, make video if you want). toys are meant to be played with! (not required: opening MIB/MIC/etc collectibles)


also - still waiting on someone to mash-up "Life's a Show" (Buffy) and "The Greatest Show" (Greatest Showman) in some creative way. XD

In your own space, rec at least three fanworks that you didn’t create.

i will point, yet again, to [community profile] fan_flashworks =) there's always lovely stuff over there - fic, wallpapers, acrostics, pic spams, texture sets, etc - have a peek!

(the problem with skimming through a lot of fic on tumblr is finding it again - i've read some stuff over there, but i have no idea where, so finding it for rec'ing would be near impossible - but i've seen some super shiny moodboards over there too, if u just search 'moodboard')

In your own space, promote a canon/talk about a part of canon that you love.


omg i don't even know... last year i did like 5 of them.

Dresden Files - 2 books released this year, which was pretty cool.

MacGyver (1985) - which will always be one of my faves.

MCU - still going strong.

Suits - flagged in the last 3-4 seasons, but still a fun show.

Highlander - will prolly forever be a fave.

In your own space, tell us who, from one of your fandoms, would you most want to have dinner with (or tea, or a random afternoon visit), And why? This could be a creator, an actor, a costumer, a set designer, a director, a character, a composer, anybody! What would you talk about? What are you dying to know?


so, technically, i have had dinner with some folks from fandoms - had a pizza party in a hotel lobby floor with Jim Butcher; been to Gatecon and had lunch on a harbor cruise with RDA - i didn't really talk to him, but did 'save' him from an annoyingly intrusive fan; and i've had dinner with a few other actor-folks who were at Gatecon (like actual dinner, not con-related meals).

but if i could pick anyone ever? hell - i don't know. i've been thinking about this for 2 days and i'm no closer to an actual answer. i'm bad at narrowing things down to a list of one. and i dunno what i'd end up talking to them about anyway. so imma just go with 'whatever happens to land in my lap'.

Apparently this is my 6th year doing this challenge.

i dunno that there's much new to say different from last year's intro.

I completed my 4-year [community profile] fan_flashworks streak and I'm almost to my 5-year streak. Mirrored from the original entry at Dreamwidth. Reply there using your own Dreamwidth account or OpenID!
