In your own space, create a love meme for yourself. Let people tell you how amazing and awesome and loveable you really are. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so. Surf the comments and find people to give love to.

Right. So I want to start off by saying that you don't have to comment on this post. You don't have to comment on this post. People reading this are busy, they maybe don't know me that well, whatever the reason. This is not an obligation meme. Please, feel free to skip this.

Love memes throw me a little bit, and they're a bit weird for me, so this is definitely part of the [community profile] snowflake_challenge that is a challenge for me. (It will be a glorious experiment?)

From [personal profile] sophia_sol, over a year ago.

(I feel sort of apologetic about posting a meme on the heels of another meme, but it seems like a good idea, especially since events have conspired to make my level of fannish activity/engagement pretty low during the past three months or so. So, um, Hi, people! basically.)

What are the three things that most attract you to a fandom?

Comment with an answer to the question above.

I’ll respond by asking you five questions so I can get to know you better.

Post to your journal with the answers to the questions. Or if you want, post in the comments here. Or both!

Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.

My answer to the question: )

...and my answers to [personal profile] sophia_sol's questions (with a couple add-ons):

1. Which is your favourite Doctor? And your favourite companion? )

2. What first brought you into bandom? )

3. Do you usually OTP, or do you like reading a wide variety of pairings? )

4. How long have you been in fandom? How did you get into fandom in the first place? )

5. What's your favourite book? )

1. What's your username and is there a story behind it?

10. Are you working on something for bandom right now? Tell us a little bit about it.
11. You've got fic open somewhere on your computer right now, don't lie. So go to one of your open tabs or word documents or whatever, and read us a couple of lines.
12. Say these words: Iero, haberdashery, LOLcat, flist, dirigible, halcyon, nemesis, ephemeral, languorous

Harlequin amuses me. I like them; they're Canadian, how they got into the romance business is a fun story, and theirs is a genre known for employing and selling to women. Sometimes they have really amusing online features.

Right now they're running a contest called Submit Your Kiss wherein you select two people (male or female) and arrange them into a position. The puppet-having aspect of it is pretty fun - I definitely went through a certain amount of glee at having a digitised ragdoll - and there are backgrounds and accessories and things. There are some hinks in the programming - it's supposed to chastise you if you position your characters in a way not strictly PG and sometimes characters that are about a metre apart, not touching at all are being inappropriate (AT HARLEQUIN THEY CAN READ MINDS, OR SOMETHING, I AM UNSURE), additionally characters' extremities may temporarily detach. Them's the breaks.

I had issues communicating my original artistic vision, so came up with a new one: women in SPACE. I figure providing Harlequin with femslash can only be good. (You, too, should provide Harlequin with femslash, or something.)

I've kind of abandoned my journal recently, so, clearly this needs to be remedied right now. Thus, links for your perusal:

John Barrowman sings a reworked version of a Wicked song and another song by Barrowman

Amusing Lecture Prank

Also, as per usual: thinkgeek is fun today, along with the usual suspects (I'm fairly amused by xkcd.) There's also wikipedia

There's news about season six of Supernatural as well.

This meme has been making the rounds about the internet. I like it.

2.) Rodney McKay/John Sheppard (Stargate: Atlantis)
3.) Gareth/Matthew (Four Weddings and a Funeral)
4.) Fox Mulder/Dana Scully (The X-Files)
5.) Mariane Dashwood/Colonel Brandon (Sense and Sensibility)

7.) James T. Kirk/Leonard "Bones" McCoy (Star Trek Reboot)
8.) Wolverine/Rogue (X-Men)
9.) Aeryn Sun/John Crichton (Farscape)
10.) Pepper Potts/Tony Stark (Iron Man)
11.) Helen Magnus/John Druitt (Sanctuary)
12.) Beatrice/Benedick (ShakespeaRe-Told - Much Ado About Nothing)
13.) Luke Danes/Lorelei Gilmore (Gilmore Girls)
14.) Rorschach/Dan (Watchmen)
15.) Gregory House/James Wilson (House)

Bonus Harry Potter ships, because I have a lot of love for that fandom:
1.) Teddy Lupin/James Potter II (Harry Potter)
2.) Luna Lovegood/Neville Longbottom (Harry Potter)
3.) Ginny Weasley/Draco Malfoy (Harry Potter)

What do you notice?

Your result for The Sorting Hat Test...


You scored 63% Order/Chaos, and 26% Moral/Rational

Orderly Rationality. You like the follow the rules unless there's a very good reason not to, and you try to keep an objective, rational look on life. Your strength lies in your ability to understand complex things by keeping a clear head and going through step by step; your weakness is in a difficulty relating to others who don't share this combination of traits.

You join members such as Luna Lovegood, Cho Chang, and Filius Flitwick.

The 4-grid I used to determine this is as follows:

Chaotic Orderly
Moral Gryffindor Hufflepuff
Rational Slytherin Ravenclaw
