nestar: (IS Not Where But When)
A friend of mine posted this on her personal journal...

I have been plagiarized over at The Pit. If y'all could take the time to please report this violator, I would very much appreciate it indeed.

I believe you need to have a account to leave a "shame on you" comment, but not to report it; scroll to the bottom and where you would add a story to an alert in the drop-down box, select "report possible abuse."

The link is here:

I posted that story originally here: on 6/17/11.

Thanks, kids.

Day 14: Your favorite book pairing.
Anne Elliot/Fredrick Wentworth "Persuasion"

The first Jane Austen book I read was Pride & Prejudice, for a while it was my favorite, then Emma, and then Persuasion.

This isn't the first blush of love, the overcoming of personalities or situations - that happened eight years ago.

Cut for lots of talking and vids... )
nestar: (HIMYM BR First Kiss)
Okay, I am now starting to really freak out about the upcoming exam. I still have two and a half lessons to finish (by Friday) and stupid me - I looked at the review lesson.

I don't have to do it, but if I do I'll get 5 points towards the exam - which I might need. Right now my biggest freak out is the fact that spell has always been my weak point and what if I can't spell the words I need for the test?

Day 01 - What is your current favorite ship?
Day 02 - What was your very first ship?
Day 03 - A pairing that needs to happen now?
Day 04 - The pairing with the most chemistry?
Day 05 - The pairing with the least chemistry?
Day 06 - Best kiss?
Day 07 - The most heartbreaking scene?

Day 08 - The pairing with the most baggage?
Robin/Barney “How I Met Your Mother”

Where to start? They both have massive daddy issues. Robin's spring from not living up to her father's (impossible) standards, while Barney is dealing with not having that presence at all.

Robin struggles with her self-image – she feels guilty that she has no interest in a babies or a husband or whatever else she's told herself is what a woman should want.

Barney has a massive fear of abandonment – his father left him when he was small, then the girl he was in love with stomped on his poor, hippy, heart (Think about it, if Shannon hadn't been a bitch then Barney = Marshall. Mind blown, right?)

I think the reason that Barney/Robin failed as a couple the first time around was that they were trying to fit themselves into the mold of what they thought a “real, normal” couple should be (I love Lily, but the whole “you have to define the relationship” thing was the beginning of the end, IMHO ). I really think that they will end up together, but no matter how much they grow it won't be in a traditional way.

Day 01 - What is your current favorite ship?
Day 02 - What was your very first ship?
Day 03 - A pairing that needs to happen now?
Day 04 - The pairing with the most chemistry?
Day 05 - The pairing with the least chemistry?
Day 06 - Best kiss?

Day 07 - The most heartbreaking scene?
Jo/Zane “Eureka”

Jo got screwed with the timeline switch. Sure she got a promotion, but she never dated the guy she's in love with, her house gets blown up and then this happens...

Yeah, that's bad ass Loupo nearly crying - and it breaks my heart every time I see it.
nestar: (Cutting Edge Mrs Doug Dorsey)
Okay guys, this is going to be a long one and full of squee.

Day 01 - What is your current favorite ship?
Day 02 - What was your very first ship?
Day 03 - A pairing that needs to happen now?

Day 04 - The pairing with the most chemistry?
Doug/Kate “The Cutting Edge”

This is the pairing that taught me what chemistry was. I remember I was about 122 or 13 and at my grandma's house when I found this on TV and I was hooked.

I rented it from the store every chance I could get. The day that they told me the tape snapped I cried. Then when the VHS was re-released I got two for my birthday (but the ads were different, so it wasn't the same).

This is the couple that I hold up as my ideal and there is a bit of Kate & Doug in every ship I've liked since then (see Donna/Josh, Kaylee/Simon, Trip/T'Pol, Jeff/Annie, Jo/Zane, Cameron/House, ect.).

And then it ended with this scene...

That part, when the music gets soft and she's gently holding onto his legs as they spin... Seriously guys, I'm getting that heart squeezing, light-headed, squee feeling just thinking about it!

"Just remember who said it first."

I should be studying, I know it, you know it, Sherlock knows it.

But the second round closes in two hours and OMG! What is going on?!

Kurt is kicking butt, so yey! But all the other races (that I care about) are super close.

Troy is leading but only 342 votes.

Sheldon is leading by 297.
Castle is ahead by 200.
Neal is leading by 197 - 197 people!!!
Eleven has only 139 vote more. Vote for the fez!

Chandler is ahead by 200, now I don't watch either of these shows but as someone posted, "Did we fall through a wormhole back to the 90's?"

I love [ profile] typicrobots like mad, but the bracket this year is killing me.

Oh sure, there have been times in past years when my heart broke a little, but that happened at the 8 and 4 level match ups, not in the FIRST ROUND!!!

There are only two shows that I watch on the teen side, so why must Cappie be going up against Kurt?! And in drama... Oh my poor Sherlock, I love you so, but Sybil Crawly is going to own you. Add to that the now annual Sophie's Choice of Doctor vs. Mal and I am a very sad little fangirl.

Doctor Who and the star of doom
Astronomer Dr Megan Argo was working at Jodrell Bank with an international team that detected a powerful jet of energy from a star exploding in a distant galaxy as a catastrophic supernova. The breakthrough is being officially announced in heavily technical language to the world of science today by the journal Nature. But Megan, 28, a keen fan of British scifi favourite Doctor Who decided to write it up as a fan-fiction adventure to bring home the excitement of the team's finding to ordinary people.

A few months ago Wil Wheaton blogged about a cool book he found called "Shatnerquake". Bill Shatner has to battle every character he's ever played.

Well, today the author is holding a one day give away. All he asks is that once you've read it, to post a review - at Amazon, or your blog, or whatever review site you may know.

Go to the author's blog to download it.

For all you awesome TM fangirls, a scene from an upcoming chapter of "Somewhere Not Over the Rainbow" (note: this is straight from the page and has not been to Erin yet, now you can see what she has to put up with).

This way to bad grammar and misspellings... )

Since everyone on my f-list is doing it (geez, I hope you guys don't decide to jump off a bridge).

You Might Be a Fan If ... -

Bold the ones that are true:

If you have ever made Trill puns in cold blood, you might be a fan.

- You have ever sat someone else down to marathon through fifteen episodes of a lousy '80s series just so she could watch this one scene (but she needed the context to appreciate it! Really!). Does it count if I've had it done to me?

- Your idea of a rockin' weekend means camping out in your living room with five friends, four laptops, one desktop, plenty of takeout and bagels, and a giant stack of Stargate discs.

- You have ever in your life uttered the phrase: "Egon is such a babe."

You celebrate Joss Whedon's birthday but can't remember if your sister's birthday is on the 10th or the 23rd.
Again half true, I do celebrate Joss's birthday, but there is no way my sisters would let me forget what theirs is.

- You've memorized the email address of the guy who wrote the third episode of second season, but you have to look up how to spell your boss's last name every time your write it down.

You know the names of the people involved with your show. Sometimes, you scare them that way.

- You have more than one pet named after favorite characters.

- You have more than one child named after favorite characters.

- You're seriously considering the merits of using "Ianto" for the next one. (That poor girl.)

- You posted your positive pregnancy test online to let your fannish friends know before you told your parents. (You weren't home, Mom. Get over it.) (What is it with me and the half points? I must not be old enough) I've tracked a friends pregnancy on-line.

- Your first spark of interest in your SO was when you linked his/her name to a favorite character.

- Your second was when s/he said, "Oh yeah. I watch that show."

- Your wedding march was Darth Vader's theme.

- The original Battlestar Galactica theme.

- The X-Files theme.

- Played on kazoos by your guests.

- While you and your spouse were in costume.

- If you stopped doing laundry for a month, you could wear clean convention t-shirts the whole time.

- You have an area of your closet (or an entire closet in your home) dedicated to the costumes you wear to cons.

- You spent more than $50 on your costume.

- You spent more than $100 on your costume and had to special order some of the pieces.

- You separate your fanfiction writing years into "Before existed" and everything else.

You were making up stories in your head years about your favorite TV shows before anyone ever said the word "fanfiction" to you. After you found out what it was, a lot of your life made a lot more sense. - Um, I still have the notebook I was writting my "Star Wars" story out of.

You care strongly about fairness and ethics in politics, but have helped stuffed a ballot box to help your favorite show win an online popularity contest.

- You oppose torture but would gladly put to the rack people who post spoilers. Only if they did so without a warning.

- Your emphasis in decorating your basement is defined as "eclectic" by your mother and "still not a perfect replica of Ten Forward" to you.

You are incapable of hearing, reading or speaking the word "inconceivable" without quoting "The Princess Bride." Duh!

- Don't even try "fully functional." Snort.

- You have blown off more than one supposedly "social" function in order to catch a new episode of that show you like but aren't quite ready to Tivo-commit to.

- You know that the best parties aren't the store-sponsored midnight release parties, they're the parties you have back at home afterwards where you and your friends are lounging around at two o'clock in the morning, all reading quietly.

- The action figures you have bought yourself as an adult outnumber the toys that survived your childhood.

- The action figures live on your desk. Well, not my desk (I don't have one), but Sheen does live on my bookcase.

- Sometimes you make little weddings for them. Sometimes they do naughty things with each other.

- You take pictures of both and post them online. Um... it's nothing naughty, but I did have a photolog of "Sheen at..." Sheen at tap class, Sheen at the theater, Sheen at Shea, etc.

- Your preschool children have opinions on Doctor Who.

- Your teenaged children write Torchwood slash.

There is no way you can consider anyone named "Captain Jack" straight. - Please.

You don't get football rules but you can explain time travel paradoxes in terms of which franchise did it screwy which way which time. You have screencaps to prove your point. - Only American football, football like the rest of the world plays it I know cold.

You may have one reality show guilty secret, but your true love is Mythbusters. Hell to the Yes!!!!

- You have your favorite actors who play Superman and Batman, but you can get downright mean when it comes to who's the right Flash or best Green Lantern.

- When you hear "crisis management" you try to remember who was the editor of DC at the time.

Your first reaction to any new fandom is wondering where it overlaps with your old fandoms.

Your second is to read every single fanfiction you can find.

Your third is to ignore the ones that don't feature your favorite character, are written in netspeak, and/or were beta-read by ocelots. Oh my lord, YES!!!

- Your opinion on musicals aside, you know most of the lyrics to "Once More With Feeling," to the chagrin of your carpool.

- Your exposure to a new song means you've got a new fanvid idea.- Make it stop, make it stop. Dear lord in heaven, make it STOP!!!

- You own CDs because you first heard the songs in a fanvid and liked them.

- When you were little, you wanted to marry Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, or Carrie Fisher. You'd still totally do any of them.
- Hello Captain Solo!

- You'd rather kiss a Wookiee.

- You have ever tried to explain furries to someone.

You met most of your close friends online or through other fannish friends. The friends you didn't meet that way are being shown the good parts of the lousy '80s series.

- You can play Fizzbin.

- There are episodes (or parts of episodes) that Didn't. Happen. You're quite clear on which ones. - Or books... and movies. I mean Anne of Green Gables 4, WTF Kevin Sullavin!!!

- You watched the Avatar series finales on Nick when they aired even though, to you, they were reruns.

- Your squick about incestuous relationships between siblings changed abruptly when you saw the Weasley twins on screen. - No, it was the moment that Peter's mom told Clare "I'm your grandmother". Really, I cried.

- You pronounce Mxyzptlk the old way.

- You giggled when Serenity showed up briefly on BSG.

- You invested your salon budget into a good set of headphones for your iPod, secure in the knowledge that you own a pair of scissors and an electric razor already.

- That iPod is loaded with filk, folk, soundtracks, and songs you learned from fanvids.

- You can recite "Star Wars" by heart. All of it. (Go ahead, try it now!)

- You can't help but think LEGO anything is automatically more cool.

- You get really pissed off when you find out someone else has already taken your preferred username when you sign onto a new journaling system, BBS or webmail site.

- You use the phrase "My *blank* is pastede on yay" in daily conversation and can name the wank from which it came.

- You've heard of /b/ but you don't give a damn so long as the cat macros keep flowing.

You spend more time Photoshopping your icons of your favorite couple than you did doing your homework in college. - Um, I skipped college so... YES!

- You have traveled to a new city to meet up with people you'd never spoken with in real life before to attend an event as a group. And you came home with pictures! - Firthlings!!!

- You went to another country for a con and Customs balked at what you were carrying when you came back, even if it was the same thing you took with you. - I drove four hours to Ottawa to go to a skating show. When the border guard asked me why I was entering the country I told them... and there was the longest moment of silence I had ever heard.

You wish everyone wore their LJ names on nametags in the real world. (Except maybe yourself.) - including myself.

You wish life came with an LJ-cut feature. - gods yes!

Also cat macros.

You have ever tried to explain cat macros to someone who doesn't go online much.

- You have ever used a cat macro or other Internet fad in a business setting.

- And gotten away with it.

Despite never having met some of them, you are emotionally closer to the people with whom you've cowritten fanfics than you are to your siblings. This is hard to explain come the holidays.

- Where you hear or read the words "Hey, didn't you write …" directed at you, you pray it's a fanfic and not some drunken rant you posted ten years ago.

- You're disappointed when it turns out to be somebody else's fanfic or drunken rant.

- You eat Pocky, Jelly Babies, and other foods introduced to you by television, (and I don't mean ads).

- You cannot look at a jar of Nutella without remembering the fanfic where one half of your OTP licked it off the other half. That you've got the jar out because you're making a sandwich for a six year old is not helping, especially when he's asking you why you're laughing so hard.

And finally, you might be a fangirl if you go through the stages of grief when you find out your favorite childhood series is now getting a big-budget summer blockbuster makeover:

1. "No way!"
2. "They better not screw over my favorite 'ship."
3. "Those spoilers from the leaked script suck."
4. "That actor is hot."
5. "Was there pR0n written for the original fandom?"
6. *Google*
7. *write more pR0n*
     - Sadly, this has never happened to me. But a "Red Dwarf" movie would ROCK!!! (When I was a kid we got ABC and PBS, sometimes FOX if I had enough wire hangers. I grew up on Brit Coms.)
