Day 7
In your own space, share your love for a trope, cliché, kink, motif, or theme. (More than one is okay, too.) Tell us about it, tell us why you love it, give us some examples and recs.

Humour: I don't generally care for 'cracky' humour (though, there is the occasional exception to that), but I adore humour that arises from snark and sniping, and just the characters being themselves.
First times: I love fics where they figure it out or take a chance for the first time.
Outside POV: I adore fics where we see our characters from an outsider's point of view.

Here are a few examples:

POI: A Perpendicular Expression
- this one is hilarious!
Mer and The Colonel
- first time AND funny!
Welcome to Atlantis
- xover with Generation kill and told from Ray's perspective; absolutely hysterical.

Day 8
In your own space, create a love meme for yourself. Let people tell you how amazing and awesome and loveable you really are.

Oh, man. *blush* Ok, well if anyone wants to tell me something awesome about me, feel free. I would love to hear it if there is any story or song I have written that has resonated with anyone, or if there was ever a post I made, or something I said that was really cool or inspirational.

Day 9
In your own space, talk about what surprises you about fandom. It could be a pairing or fandom you never thought you'd like. A fanwork type you never knew existed.

Actually, McShep was my big surprise. I often find myself wondering about pairings in a show, both the ones that are being presented as a given or seem apparent because of the chemistry. I shipped Buffy and Spike, Parker and Jarod, Riker and Deanna, Spock and Chapel; when I started watching SGA, I automatically tried Sheppard/Weir on for size. It just never fit for me. Then I tried him with Teyla, and still got a no. So I tried visualizing Rodney with them and when I stopped laughing, I was stumped. What just kept grabbing me in that show was the friendship between the two men, the camaraderie, the snippy little comments - and suddenly, I was seeing the subtext everyone had been talking about. I guess that's when I donned my first pair of slash goggles.

So yeah, that's what surprised me. I never slashed anyone before SGA. I never thought I would. Who knew?

I love your filk. Writing songs is something I've tried to do, and have never been able to manage, and your songs are catchy, fun and really capture the spirit of whatever it is that you're filking.

I have really enjoyed getting to know you over the past years, and you are just as kind and funny in person as you are here online.

Well, the feeling is mutual! I am delighted that we met and have had the chance to get to know each other better on LJ.

You are so incredibly talented. You write well (yay Rodney fan!) and you make beautiful jewelry. I'm honored to be your mutual LJ friend :)
