productivity, what's that.

I'm trying to do this posting more often thing. Obviously by supplementing memes in a lot instead of real information. OH WELL.

Memes from [ profile] lesson_in_love!

Tell me you want to play and I'll pick up to three of your fandoms. Then update your journal and answer the following questions:

1. What got you into this fandom in the first place?
2. Do you think you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?
3. Favorite episodes/books/movies, etc?
4. Do you participate in this fandom (fanfiction, graphics, discussions)?
5. Do you think more people should get into this fandom?

1. The writer's strike, in a way. I was looking for something to fill the void left behind by EVERY SHOW EVER stopping production. I originally balked at watching SPN because it took Angel's timeslot on The WB (lol I KNOWWW) and then I had a couple friends who were super into SPN and quoted it a lot so I finally acquiesed, having nothing better to watch, and then I was quoting better than them.
2. I have a hard time staying in a fandom once a show ends, but this is the most involved I've ever been in a show, so I don't know. I think Sam and Dean will always have a special place in my heart. Much like Buffy, I'll probably always compare new shows I watch to my experience with Supernatural, even if I do nothing else.
3. The End and WIAWSNB are forever my favorite episodes. I could probably make a top ten list but eh.
4. I write, I write. I used to be willing to discuss the show a lot more with everyone, comment a lot and I was all over the anon meme and just random people's episode reviews, but now I find myself enjoying the show more if I don't pay any attention to everyone else. Which is super hard because I WANT to talk about it.
5. I wish a lot of fans who have left the fandom would come back sob. And I'm always hopeful that there are new people watching the show for the first time and falling in love with it. But let's face it, this fandom is HUGE.

Doctor Who:
1. Uhmmmmm. It was on the tape of SciFi my mom got from a friend every week. Instead of just watching the Stargate she recorded for us, we'd watch everything on the tape, which often included DW, Primeval, Sanctuary, and a million other shows.
2. I think I'll watch the show for as long as it runs and always miss David Tennant. And when it ends, I'll still make references and enjoy Doctor Who quotes and that sort of thing, but I'll move on. I already don't have as much interest in it as I used to, I just can't get into Eleven quite the same.
3. The Girl in the Fireplace and The Girl Who Waited are probably my favorites. I also enjoy Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead. I haven't actually seen every episode of the show still, lol.
4. I've never really been IN the fandom, I don't think? Or if anything, I just kind of skirt the edges. I'm not a member of any comms, and other than some Ten/Reniette, I don't think I've ever read or written anything. I don't even reblog that much on tumblr anymore.
5. I think people should watch the show. And there's a lot of creative people in fandom making pretty things worth seeing.

Queer as Folk:
1. Hahahaha uhhh. Sons of Anarchy. Like, I'm not sure I'd ever even heard of QaF, maybe in passing once in HS, and then...Charlie Hunnam. I'm not even that fond of the British QaF when you compare it to the gloriousness that is Brian Fucking Kinney, though.
2. I think the fandom's been at least partly dead for a few years already, sooooo. I came a little too late. I poke around in the remains sometimes.
3. Everything after 3.08 to the end of season 4. Yep yep yep.
4. See answer two. :|

1. Reply to this post with "I LOVE EVERYONE IN THIS MORALLY DEPRAVED BAR" and I will pick five (or maybe ten!) of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

Basically Tron is the shit and lightcycles are so pretty and fun and really kind of iconic, I guess.

obligatory football icon, courtesy of Friday Night Lights. You guys, I fucking love football. And I fucking loved FNL and am still not over it (seriously, Brett's probably getting annoyed that I keep watching the same few episodes over and over on Netflix). My oblig football icon was a Colts helmet but well, they've broken up that dream team so I'm more of a general cheerer now.

Kenzi! The Kenziest Kenzi to ever Kenzi. I love herrrr so much and her face is so precious especially when she's smiling about something. And her hair's so awesome and she's pretty bad ass for a human who hangs out with a bunch of fae. Even if she is nearsighted and weak.

Neal Caffrey really is so very beautiful. I think it helps that every shot of White Collar looks as pretty as this one, though. Also I just love that Neal hates guns but that doesn't mean he can't use one.

THAT FUCKING PEANUT. Look, when I first started playing Left 4 Dead 2, I would see that thing in the carnival stage and then just know I would die soon. IT TAUNTS ME. So I enjoy shooting its stupid cardboard self in the face with my shotgun. Carnival's my favorite stage to play now. :):)

haha, the fandom one looks like too much effort to me. /lazy

The fandom one took me a lot longer than I thought it would so I don't blame you there, bro.

Hmmm. Doctor Who, Supernatural, Harry Potter

Personally I think there's a bit of real information hidden slyly in the meme stuff. ;P

Also, your icons are pretty.

[identity profile] 2012-04-01 08:42 pm (UTC)(link)
That's probably true. The memes provide prompting to talk about stuff I'd probably never just bring up.

Also, thanks. :D
