The Fan Fiction Personality Test

The Mindgamer

Everything is possible, nothing is ever really over.

Fanfiction is a creative outlet for you. You don't intentionally write it, it just happens. You find inspiration in several fandoms, but are not obsessed with only one.

You like to explore "what if" situations. What if this character had never made this very choice? What if this event had taken place sooner, never, elsewhere? What if these people had never met?

You are likely to write Alternative Universes, fan seasons or sequels and just follow your (sometimes pretty strange) plot bunnies.


Okay, that is scary accurate, and on that note I'm off to finish the intro chapter from my BSG/PotO AU ;)

The first post I made on this "30 Days" meme was April 19th.

Why don't I just post the last three entries and call in done?

Day 28 - A pairing that you will never understand?
Dom/Mal “Inception”


Maybe it is because all we see is Dom's guilty projection of her, but I do not get Mal or why she was so wonderful.


Day 29 - What ship had the best proposal?
Henry/Danielle “Ever After”





Day 30 - Your favorite ship forever and ever and ever!
Buttercup/Westley “The Princess Bride”


With bunnies!

Day 27 - A pairing that you loved and ended up hating?
Christine/Roule “The Phantom of the Opera”


With the black & white movies and the stage musical, Christine was set up as the damsel and Roule was clearly the hero; and when I was 12 I was willing to go with that.

Then I read the book and came to understand that The Phantom was a real man (with a name!) who hurt and loved and lived while Roule was a whinny baby who was told he couldn't have the toy he wanted.


Christine seized Raoul's arm and clutched it with a strength which no one would have suspected in so frail a creature.
"Then you were listening behind the door?"
"Yes, because I love you everything ... And I heard everything ..."


Christine entered, took off her mask with a weary movement and flung it on the table. She sighed and let her pretty head fall into her two hands. What was she thinking of? Of Raoul? No, for Raoul heard her murmur: "Poor Erik!"
At first, he thought he must be mistaken. To begin with, he was persuaded that, if any one was to be pitied, it was he, Raoul. It would have been quite natural if she had said, "Poor Raoul," after what had happened between them. But, shaking her head, she repeated: "Poor Erik!"
What had this Erik to do with Christine's sighs and why was she pitying Erik when Raoul was so unhappy?
nestar: (Phantom)
Hey guys, I have stuff to talk about!

Last week I was at the library and looking out at me from the CD rack was "Wonderland" the musical.

Could she be the one, you know?
Tin man, lion or scarecrow?
Wait that's from a different show


I almost drove off the road when I first heard that.

And then I realized that by switching a few songs around I could have a squeal to "Alice" - which I then plotted out ::head desk::

Day 26 - A pairing that you hated and ended up loving?
Christine/Eirk “The Phantom of the Opera”


I was first introduced to this fandom through the old black & white movies and then ALW's musical.


The B&W's were trying to play up the horror aspect of the story and the musical didn't really delve into the love between Christine and The Phantom (who they never name).

And then I read the book.

The man's voice spoke again: "Are you very tired?"
"Oh, to-night I gave you my soul and I am dead!" Christine replied.
"Your soul is a beautiful thing, child," replied the grave man's voice, "and I thank you. No emperor ever received so fair a gift. THE ANGELS WEPT TONIGHT."

"My anger equaled my amazement. I rushed at the mask and tried to snatch it away, so as to see the face of the voice. The man said, 'You are in no danger, so long as you do not touch the mask.' And, taking me gently by the wrists, he forced me into a chair and then went down on his knees before me […] And the voice, the voice which I had recognized under the mask, was on its knees before me, WAS A MAN! And I began to cry... The man, still kneeling, must have understood the cause of my tears, for he said, 'It is true, Christine! ... I am not an Angel, nor a genius, nor a ghost ... I am Erik!'"


"Oh, I hate him!" cried Raoul. "And you, Christine, tell me, do you hate him too?"
"No," said Christine simply.
"No, of course not ... Why, you love him! Your fear, your terror, all of that is just love and love of the most exquisite kind, the kind which people do not admit even to themselves,"

Day 25 - A pairing that was/would-be adorable, but could never work out?
Puck/Rachel “Glee”


They could be really good for each other, Puck would help Rachel to care less about other people's opinions and Rachel would bring out the softer side of Puck. But in the end Rachel would put stardom first and Puck would end up screwing around. They wouldn't want to hurt each other it would just happen.

and this is where I shake my fist at the sky and curse Fox yet again - this time for taking down all the fanvids of Glee

Day 22 - A pairing you hate and no one else understands why?

It takes a lot for me to hate something (they are just fictional characters after all), so if I do truly hate a pairing, then most of the fandom is with me on it (see Erica/Adam, Penny/Leonerd)
nestar: (Being Erica Erica Close Up)
Previous days here... )

Day 21 - A pairing you like and no one else understands why?
Duchess/Jack “Alice”


Alice/Hatter dominate the fandom, so when D/J does pop up it's as more of a secondary “Pair the spares” sort of thing which makes me so sad. The Duchess was such an unexplored character and she had such potential, but no one but me seems to want to explore it.

nestar: (Default)
It's kind of sad that all I have to post is this meme and it's taken me waaaaaaaay over 30 days to do it. Oh well, you all still love me right?

Day 20 - The 'can't stand the sexual tension anymore' pairing?
Kensi/Deeks “NCIS:LA”


These two...



Really, they just need to get on with it.

D: Okay, so just to clarify; when we said Kensi was going to seduce him, what exactly did we mean by that?
S: You jealous?
D: What? Of Kensi? She's my partner.
G: Okay, whatever you say.
D She's my partner!

BBC America started airing "Battlestar Galatica" a few weeks ago and since I've never seen it (I know, right?) I figured this was a good chance to catch it from the beginning.

For the last few weeks I've had a niggling in the back of my head over Apollo and thanks to the mini-marathon today I figured it out - Lieutenant Kennedy!

Day 19 - A pairing you’ve rooted for since the beginning?
Trip/T'Pol “ST: Enterprise”


She's the cool and logical outsider, He's the sweet talkin' southern boy who's out to get under her skin (and then all over her skin).

This video sums it up quite nicely - http://youtu.be/HW93gPx64P8

And a bonus Baby Elizabeth video!

Day 17 - A pairing you thought would never work out, but did?
Josh/Donna “The West Wing”


I came into this fandom halfway through; the first episode I ever saw was "Inauguration: Over There" where Josh (along with Toby, Will, Charlie and Danny) throws snowballs at Donna's window.



I rented the DVD's from the library and caught up with all the great Josh/Donna UST from the first four seasons.

Day 15 - What is your favorite real life pairing?
I tend to squick over RPF, but I have found myself drawn to Joseph Gordon-Levitt/Ellen Page and Matt Smith/Karen Gillan. So, I guess I like hipsters in love?

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.

Jo/Mr. Berh “Little Women”

This one just grates. It was only a few years ago I found out that there was a huge outcry when Jo refused Laurie, it got LMA so upset that she wrote this pairing instead.
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 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.

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.

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."
