I'm behind on my meme again, so I'm doing three days at once.

Day 14 → A non-fictional book

Alright, now if this means a book that's actually real, then I'm going to recommend The Three Musketeers because it's kickass and I loved it.

Day 15 → A fanfic

There are a huge number of great fics in the various fandoms I participate in, but I'm going to say After the End from the Harry Potter fandom because it was the first multi-chaptered fic I ever followed. I used to wait eagerly for each new installment and I remember how crushed I felt after the final chapter was posted just after Order of the Phoenix came out and there was a happy ending in the fic for characters no longer among the living in canon. Honestly, I don't remember much of the plot, but I just know I enjoyed it at the time and it was a big deal in my Ron/Hermione and Harry/Ginny obsession days.

Day 16 → A song that makes you cry (or nearly)

I nearly cried the first time I heard Punch Brothers' Blind Leaving the Blind, Movement One. I don't really know why. Youtube doesn't seem to have the whole thing, but this video is at least half of it.

Your result for The Fan Fiction Personality Test...

The Shipper

Slash, pairings and Playboy plot bunnies.

You are very likely female, and you very likely examine characters for their "slashability". Though you insist that your stories don't circle around love and sex between attractive characters, they do.

It is also likely familiar to you that at a certain point in your story, a character (or more) discovers that he (and rarely even she) is gay, and starts a relationship with another character.

Your fanfiction meets the taste of many, especially if your pairing happens to be between two attractive males that are straight in canon.

You probably wrote something about Harry Potter falling in love with Draco Malfoy, Legolas starting a secret romance with Aragorn or Obi Wan being a sex sklave of Han Solo. If not, you probably still consider to do it.

Take The Fan Fiction Personality Test at OkCupid

Man, what a hateful quiz. I would never insist my stories were anything other than an excuse to wax eloquent about characters falling in love. Ah, romance!

Also, change Han Solo to Qui-Gon Jinn and maybe we got something.

Earlier, I was frying something and I needed Jessica to hand me the tongs. Only I couldn't think of the word 'tongs'. So I made this little *clasp clasp* motion with my fingers to indicate what I wanted. And it went like this:

ME: Um, dude, will you hand me the...uh...the um...*clasp clasp*
HER: The Misha Collins?

I was oddly proud of her and somewhat confused because Jessica is nowhere near a Misha fan. She's not on twitter. She's probably never heard of [ profile] mishaland. Frankly, I think she's annoyed by Misha. Yet, this message of insanity has still managed to reach her. It's amazing.

Merry Christmas!

I don't want to wax eloquent, but since it's Day 12 → Whatever tickles your fancy and it's Christmas, I am going to post a little poem thing I read at church yesterday that I thought was really beautiful.

Light looked down and saw darkness )

:) I hope everyone is having a great day, regardless of how you spent it!

Speaking of things I read in church, I picked up a random piece of paper and the first bit of it said, "Now Gabriel came to Zechariah and..." I then shook myself, reminded myself to separate fandom and real life and went about my business.

Oh and I got a magazine subscription for Christmas! I've asked for one for the last three years, lol. Also some other really nifty stuff including s1 of Deep Space Nine (omg, I love that show so much!)

And now I'm attempting to write the next chapter of this fic AGAIN because I've lost a bunch of it TWICE now from computer glitches. I'm going to start saving after every sentence, I swear.

*twirls away*

Day 10 → A photo of you taken over ten years ago

I'm so cool. Everyone wants to be me. )

Coming to an LJ near you )
cloudyjenn: (Cas= Dr. Sexy  by awakencordy)
Alright, I have time to get back to my meme now!

Day 09 → A photo you took

Sorry if you got the ginarmo version of a moment ago. I fixed it.

In case you were wondering, it's my mother )

The Rest )
cloudyjenn: (Default)
The most amazing things are happening in the living room right now.

John started a fire and we are toasting marshmallows for s'mores! We are also watching the first Star Trek film with all its glorious unnecessarily long pauses while I work on finishing up the secret santa fic. So many good things, people.

Which is why its great that today's meme picture is...

Day 08 → A photo that makes you angry/sad

I could do something really serious as there is a lot of crap that qualifies in this world, but I'm going for something more frivolous to keep the angst in my journal to a minimum.

We got them back for this later )

More to come )

This meeting is adjourned.

Meme Day 7

Day 07 → A photo that makes you happy

Actually, you get two. :)

Ummmmmm )

Please explain. )

The Ghost of Meme Yet to Come )

More meme!

Day 06 → Whatever tickles your fancy

This really tickles my fancy. In fact, Jessica and I were cracking up over this last night, which just goes to show how dumb we are. I have this deep love for pretending my SPN characters are saying lines from other stuff completely. Don't ask why.

I'm dedicating this to her and to Kam and Sarah because I'm guessing we four will appreciate it the most. Although it does involve Dean/Castiel, so that's fun for many parties.

The Angel Raj and Christine Winchester )

Also, while doing this, I took the ugliest screencap of Dean ever.

Ugly Screencap )

I'm leaving off the list this time because this is already long enough. Top Chef finale tonight! I'm rooting for Bryan, but I would be ok with any of them winning. I like everyone left and that's never happened to me on a reality competition show. So yaye! (And it's nearly over because it took me the ENTIRE EPISODE to get these pictures uploaded urhglalsdfjal;skdfa;lskdjfaslkd)

Also, Kentucky plays Connecticut. J. Cal vs. J. Cal! TOO MANY OVERLAPPING INTERESTS.

Um, I'm off now Later!

Apparently LJ isn't sending out comment notifications? At least mine anyway. Dash you, LJ!

So I'm late with this meme, so I'm putting two days into one post. I'm sure you can all survive this change.

Day 04 → Your favorite book

I went round and round with this one. How do you pick one favorite book? Well, you can't obviously. I thought about reccing a random book I've loved, but then I got to thinking. Out of all the books I've read and loved, there is one that's inspired me to things others simply haven't. I took a whole course on this author's work. I spent endless hours obsessing over his work and its film adaptation, including traveling to meet other fans and people involved with the making of said film adaptation. I connected with some of my best friends over it. I even went to this author's hometown and cried at his grave over all the little signs of his fans and the way he touched their lives.

I'll always love these books, even if I live to be 111 )

Day 05 → Your favorite quote

This one needs no discussion. It's awesome is apparent.

Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.
-Groucho Marx

The rest )

In other news, I read some fic today and I feel my squee recharged. I may go and write! Excitement!

Meme Day 3

Dec. 7th, 2009 03:01 am
cloudyjenn: (odo tribbles by curtana)
We're going to pretend that every day means every time period between when I wake up and when I fall asleep again.

Right, so Day Three!

Day 03 → Your favorite television program

Ah, television. My preferred medium for fandom and general squee. I have so many TV programs that I love. Pretty much anything with 'Star' in the title. Shows with time travel and space aliens and mythical creatures. Thrown in is the occasional 'reality-based' show like NCIS and M*A*S*H.

And I love them all so very much.

However, unlike movies, in this category there is a clear winner.

They won't let me smoke inside, but you can pee in Leo's closet )

Also, I got cute little snowflake thingeys from [ profile] devilyouwere, [ profile] obsidianglass, [ profile] kisa_hawkin and [ profile] madpsychogirl. Thank you guys!

I'm off to try and finish my second 'Holy crap I have writer's block and need to work on something else for a minute' fanfiction. It's coming along nicely.
