Name any story I've written, and any character in it, canon or OC. I'll tell you three things about that character which I didn't put in the story.

i always end up wanting to type "Mame" instead of Meme, which makes me giggle and think of Auntie Mame, which is a movie i love and adore. anyway, i gacked this from [livejournal.com profile] trollprincess:

Name ten cancelled shows you love. Extra credit for those killed before their time. Double extra credit for shows with major queer text/subtext.

im just not sure i can actually come up with 10...

1) Earth 2 - they only gave us one stinking season. and it was about humanity, and aliens, and damnit, i just wanted one little kiss between Devon and Danziger. thats Danz in my icon. :) and Antonio Sabato Jr? where is the bad here?

2) Roswell - this show had such fabulous potential. so much so that TVguide was afraid of us, and there were tiny bottles of tabasco being mailed in millions to TPTB. and then they gave us season 2, killed Alex (i cried all over myself), and then got cancelled. what? third season? there was no third season. no.

3) P.S. I Love You - this is a show i barely remember, but it was funny, and had the cool dad from My Two Dads on it. it was about a cop and a woman in the witness protection program. hee!

4) FarScape - im just getting into it, in all honesty, but i want.more.now.

5) Angel - the bastages.

6) Daria - what a great, sarcastic, cynical cartoon. damn you anyway, mtv.

7) Clarissa Explains it All - nick show, very clever, much cooler than Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, regardless of the same actress. and *Sam*. i loved Sam.

8) MacGyver - oh come on, if you know me at all, you knew this would be on here.

9) Avonlea - i admit it, i loved this show. gus pike, felicity king, hetty, olivia, felix..*sigh*

10) Sliders - infinately cool concept. parellel universes..

anything else?

20 Questions to a Better Personality

You are an SRDL--Sober Rational Destructive Leader. This makes you a mob boss. You are the ultimate alpha person and even your friends give you your space. You can't stand whiners, weaklings, schlemiels or schlemozzles. You don't make many jokes, but when you do, others laugh out loud. They must.

People often turn to you for advice, and wisely. You are calm in a crisis, cautious in a tempest, and attuned to even the finest details. Yours is the profile of a smart head for business and a dangerous enemy.

You have a natural knack for fashion and occupy a suit like a matinee idol. Your charisma is striking and without artifice. You are generous, thoughtful, and appreciate life's finer things.

Please don't kick my ass.


Hee!! Im a mob boss. better watch out.


and, [livejournal.com profile] xmmficathon is posting stories.

[livejournal.com profile] ofluvandblood wrote Rogue Always Did Like to Make Lists for moi, and i love it!

and i wrote Half Melted for [livejournal.com profile] nevacaruso.

please go read and comment! everyone has worked hard on their stories, and im loving getting to look through all of them.

When did you write your first "Fanfiction" piece? What was it for?:

technically, when i was in high school, i had an assignment to rewrite the story of Fareinheit 451 from another character's viewpoint. i cant remember what grade i got though..

otherwise, my first started fic was roswells Where's the Girl?

my first completed fic was a Star Wars: YJK challenge story called The Streets of Coruscent

What series have you written fanfics for? (both posted stories, and non-posted stories):

roswell is my biggest and my best so far, also star wars, gilmore girls, and xmen movieverse

Any Original Characters (ones that got named) that you had inhabit the series universes? If so- who/where? (yes, this is where we embarrass you by revealing your dark secrets!):

does Allison in Where's the Girl? count? she's a baby, and isnt actually in the story, but she is there.

If you had the chance to have the original creator turn any of your fanfics into an actual *real* piece, which story would you choose?

as dumb as it sounds, i would love to see my rosfic Singalong Series be turned real. i dove it so.

and Bloom, if i ever get it finished, as it is completely twisted, and i think it would be fun.

Do you have any weird music quirks that help you write?

Wicked Game by Chris Isaac
Rest Stop by Matchbox 20
the broadway soundtrack of The Scarlet Pimpernel

i have no idea why.

What are common "themes" you hide in your stories?

err..most of my stories are somewhere between odd and completely twisted, so im not sure what that says about themes

What are your favorite characters to write POVs from?

Maria, Michael, Luke from Gilmore Girls

What story of yours do you wish more people would read and love?

heh, ok, um..2, both roswellMemorial to the Name and Who are my favs.

If you could pick a specific scene of your story to be made into a comic-book/doujinshi format, what scene from what fanfic would you pick?

most of my stories are introspectives, so this wouldnt exactly work.

And last but not least- Why do you like writing fanfiction?

i get to show what a character is thinking during a part not seen, i get to see missing moments between people or by themselves. i get to set up fun stuff with people i already know!

My LiveJournal Sitcom
Life With aliaspiral (TNN, 7:00): aliaspiral (Emilio Estevez) tells a joke that offends alyfan (Chris Rock). On the other side of town, ats_icons (Roy Clark) invents a new kind of beef jerky and gets icon_tutorial (Bill Pullman) to sell it. Then, wolverinerogue (Maura Tierney)'s new friend alienates belit (Michael Moore). That same day, slayergurl121 (Matthew Lillard) falls off allaboutspike (Natalie Portman)'s porch and gets hurt. Upstairs, boofadil (Dan Aykroyd) and etoilepb (Kim Basinger) kiss at the college. (Series finale.)

stolen from several people, including [livejournal.com profile] magelette and [livejournal.com profile] musesfool

Farenheit 451 was the first book that ever shook my world. i think i was about 10 when i read it, and before then, had never really thought about how different the world could be. i also blame my complete addiction to utopia/disutopia novels on reading this one.
There's dew on the grass in the morning. And if you look, there's a man in the moon.

Alex, the Life of a Child showed me that children die. i was 8 when i read it, and Alex was 8 when she died. I went on a real kick on CF, did several science projects on it, some research. i still donate to the CF Foundation.

Towards Amnesia is a book i found when i couldnt stop thinking about how nice it would be to be someone else, be somewhere else. i picked it up off of Melisa's bookshelf, but after i finished it, i hunted down a copy for myself.

The whole Finover Tapastry series: The Summer Tree, The Wandering Fire, and The Darkest Road; left me wandering around completely out of it for almost a week. the lyrical haunting quality of the words, and the repetition of many of the same phrases is really affecting. Weaves mythology, fantasy, and all religions together.
Most hated by the Dark, for their name was Light.
Saddest story of all the sad stories told.


Outsiders. Who doesnt love this book? who hasnt cried when reading this book? I still know all the words to that poem too. And i cry over Johnny and Darry every time. every damn time.

The Giver is another utopian novel. only this one, each child is chosen to live in a family, and what they will be, and the children they dont need..well, they get rid of. Emotions, pain, even colors, are not seen or felt. there is also Gathering Blue, which is set in the same world, but i havent read it yet.

My Siter's Keeper, is a book i read today, sitting in Borders. it took me 2 hours. its that good. more a character study in complicated decisions than a full blown plot, you find yourself sympathizing with all the characters. and then crying in the middle of a bookstore over a 13 year old named Anna.

Writing Down the Bones is a guide for aspiring writers, but its more than that. another book i borrowed from melisa, and havent gotten around to getting my own copy.

there are more. like, way more, but these are the first ones that spring to mind. im surprised, really, by how few fantasy books are on the list. which books influenced you? how? why?
