@skybound2 tagged me to post five facts about myself, and then to tag ten others, so….
Cypher tagged me in the 10 questions meme. I’m lazy about rules and stuff so I’m just posting the questions she asked me and my answers. Here’s the questions she asked me:
1. Best travel story?
The time uzisuzuki and I ghost-hunted at the Omni in Boston. Good times.
2. Worst travel story?
Getting the flu the last few days I was in South Padre Island when I was sixteen, and being sick during the 17 hour drive home.
3. If you could live in a fictional world for a week, which one would you inhabit?
A week? Man, I don’t know. I guess it depends… do I have to be a normal person in this fictional world, or do I get to know what’s going on/be super-powered and/or magical? Because really, most of the fictional worlds I enjoy watching and/or reading about are in the middle of some war — so that’s not really the time to visit. And if I don’t get to be magical or superpowered, what’s the point? You know?
Maybe I’d just want to live on the Enterprise — or maybe not the Enterprise (because they’re always getting into trouble) but maybe another starship. Because replicators and holodecks and yeah.
Or… you know, anywhere I get to be a vampire… or otherwise immortal (even if it’s for a week).
Biggest pet peeve?
People who don’t hold open doors or elevators for people right behind them. I mean, you don’t have to like hold open the door for everyone, but the kind thing to do is make sure the person behind you has the door in their hand before letting go of it.
Do you have a nemesis?
If you could chuck wood like a woodchuck would, would you?
No. That sounds like hard work.
Would you rather fight fifty duck sized horses or one horse sized duck?
Fight? One horse sized duck. Keep? Fifty duck sized horses.
Favorite genre of movie?
Ever met any tumblr friends in real life?
Yes. Although most of them I knew prior to tumblr. (And some of them just live near me so we were friends offline first.) Although not near enough people live near KC to be friends with.
I think minorearth might be the only one I’ve met after knowing her through tumblr. (Although we were LJ friends before, we didn’t get close until after tumblr.)
What is the answer to life, the universe and everything?
TV show/movie/book you absolutely hate and why?
Book? The Crimson Petal and the White. (I hate any book that breaks the fourth wall to actually talk DOWN to me as the reader.)
Can’t think of any tv or movies I actually downright hate — although there’s many I dislike. Maybe brewngames can think of something I have said I hate, because we often have very different tastes in movies and tv.
O.O Okaaaaayyyy. That was unexpected.
Test here if you wanna.
I was tagged by minorearth. I answered for five of these books in an ask meme a month or two ago. So, I’m copy/pasting the info for those. (Also cheating a little by combining a few items from the same author.)
Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just ones that have touched you. Tag ten friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them!
Again, choosing favorites hurts me but I will endeavor to do such a thing. (I didn’t mention this last night, but I’ve been making a real effort to keep mythological/religious figures off my lists. They occupy a different space in my head, but would make up a good deal of these lists.)
Superheroes (where it’s important to note that I’m a DC girl):
Seriously though, even if I had a top ten, I think a Marvel chick wouldn’t hit until maybe 10? I just… DC/Image/Top Cow/Aspen were my go-tos. Also, it’s important for me to mention that the only reason Zatanna doesn’t make my top five is that while she is, I suppose technically, a superhero type character — I don’t think of her as a SUPERHERO. You know?
If real ones count, Queen Elizabeth I, is four of the five answers with her mother being the fifth. For the sake of FICTIONAL characters, I’ll list five others.
That I’d want to kiss:
In an effort to spread the love (ha!) I’ll pick ONE Dragon Age and ONE Mass Effect character, and we’ll pretend you understand that all of the ladies go on my list somewhere, ‘kay?
I want to rescue from their horrible narratives:
1-5 Moffat era Doctor Who ladies. *mic drop*
OMG. To be fair these are like asking for the top five favorite hairs on my head. I mean… with the exception of the top two most of them are ridiculously & suddenly subject to change.
(Honestly my love for female villains knows few bounds. If she’s a woman, and a villain, I’m probably in love with her already. If she’s magical? Sign me up. I cannot stress this enough, I just can.not.)
That I’d invite to a sleepover/dinner party:
(In the perfect world where they’re not going to kill me, and/or each other if I invite them… also, I feel like these invitations would be much better sent in pairs. Consider the first in any pair priority for meme purposes.)
Who I think deserved better endings (where better doesn’t necessarily mean I’m not okay with the way things ended, but my ending for them is preferable):
before 2013 ends inbox me one thing you’ve always wanted to know or say to me and i have to reply to all of them (unless you’re being an asshat)
drop one of these bad boys in my askbox and i will post, without editing
- FIRST — the first two sentences of my current project
- LAST — the most recently written two sentences of my current project
- NEXT — the next line. meaning i will finish the sentence I’m on and write a new one, which you’ll get.
- [insert prompt here] — you post a prompt, and i’ll write three sentences based on that prompt, set in the same time/setting as my current project
- WHAT IF — i will pick an important choice or event in my current project and write three sentences (or more?) about if it’d gone done differently
- THE END — i’ll make up an ending, or post the ending if i’ve written it
- BEFORE THE BEGINNING — three sentences (or more) about something that happened before the plot of my current project
- POV — something that’s already happened, retold from another character’s perspective
feel free to specify a specific project, if i have more than one, or a fandom*, if you don’t know what i’m working on.
Actually, this could be fun. And possibly motivating too…
