Stolen from [personal profile] liv, here.

I'm going to list three things in order of how much I like them. If you see this, and if you feel like playing, repost the list in your own journal. You can change the order if you disagree with my judgement of how likeable the things are. The rule is that you need to add one new thing that's better than anything in the parent list, and one new thing that's worse than anything on the parent list, and one new thing somewhere in the middle (doesn't have to be the exact centre). Include a link back to where you got the meme from. And then we can follow the list around various journals, seeing how it mutates. I am still friends with some of the people I met playing this a decade ago; let's see how it works now.

  1. wombats

  2. Nessie Ladle

  3. Tumblr

  4. Twitter

  5. gender essentialism

  6. depression

(Oops, forgot about the thing I was supposed to add in the middle.)

Meme! Stolen from [personal profile] finch, seen various places.

Pick a date below and give me a topic - it can be anything, from fandom related to life related to art related to whatever you want.

They will probably be brief, or not, depending on the subject.

Also, I reserve the right to decline prompts that I don't feel equipped to meet.

Topics: you can get an idea from my tags/from the stuff I usually ramble about/from things you maybe wish I talked about more but don't.

You can request multiple topics (as long as they're on different days -- one topic per day!!).

Tell me about a story I haven't written, and I'll give you between one and three sentences from that story.

Found this on [personal profile] naraht's journal, via [personal profile] moetushie, who comments:

"I agree with Tehta -- responses in the format of story reviews or recs (or anti-recs, or 'constructive criticism') would be the best."
randomling: The Eleventh Doctor (of Doctor Who) cast in purple light. (purple eleven)
Meme time:

Find the nearest book to you, turn to page 45, and read the first sentence: this describes your sex life in 2013.

Too innocent and open.

...well, that could be worse. I'm kind of not expecting a sex life in 2013 anyway.

Gakked from [personal profile] kaberett.

NPR's top 100 SF/Fantasy books. Bold if you've read, italicise ones you fully intend to read, underline if it's a book/series you've read part but not all of, strike through if you intend to never read.

Spare all the reading lists. )

I... do not remember where I saw this last, but it's all over the place.

Is it wrong that I think all of Sam's problems would most likely be solved by a good snog with Dean?

Also: have a meme!

In honor of All Hallow's Eve, I’m inviting trick-or-treaters to my ‘door’. Comment “trick-or-treat” to this post and… well, you know the drill. Treats can be anything that strikes my fancy (pics of fave actors or pairings, one sentence fics, graphics, a few words why I’m glad to have you on my flist, etc. etc.). The more "houses" to visit the more fun it'll be, so go ahead, open your journal and help spread the fun!

Ask me for my Top Five anything!

(I... don't necessarily promise a timely response. I'm not great at that at the best of times, and I'm still ill. But I'll try, and I'll definitely have fun thinking about it even if I don't answer?)

First, a meme:

If you could force me to write anything, what would it be?

Second, some stuff:

-I managed to get my SeSa written and posted by the deadline. Whoo! It's not my best story ever, which I suppose is what comes of writing the story in the last two days before the deadline, but I am rather proud of the title.

-This means that I'm now free to start working on something of my very own. It might be finishing off The Plan or one of the other big Priority 1 stories on my bunny list. Decisions, decisions.

-I have otherwise been rather fannishly lax recently, to my shame. Too much going on in real life. OMG, how is it Christmas so soon?

-That said, my friends, and particularly my fannish friends of all stripes, are pure awesome.

-That's all for now.

Okay, this has been stolen from [ profile] phaballa, who resurrected it from a few years back, and I thought it was interesting. It goes a little something like this:

List your favourite story from each month this year, and say a little something about it.

Dive under the cut for the fics. )

Um, the end.

As tagged by my new friend, the lovely [ profile] brighton_girl.

I don't usually talk about much Personal Stuff on this LJ, but let's see.

a. people who have been tagged must write their answers on their blog and replace any question that they dislike with a new, original question.

b. tag eight people. don't refuse to do that. don't tag who tagged you.

And now for the questions! )

Oh, and I'm supposed to tag people, aren't I? Um, I've never done this tagging thing before and have no idea who hasn't done it and still would want to, but, um...

But first.

It's the last chance to get your questions in for my 15 Characters Meme. Roll up, roll up! I'm going to write the answers tomorrow.
randomling: A wombat. (Default)
Look at your LJ userpics list. If you have fewer than twenty icons, post them all. If you have between twenty and fifty icons, pick every fifth one. If you have between fifty and seventy-five icons, pick every seventh one. If you have over seventy-five icons, pick every tenth one. List them on your LJ, and tell everyone exactly why you have it, why it's interesting to you, and what significance it has.

A bunch of icons. )
randomling: Joey Fatone of *nsync looks up and to the left, laughing. The word "ahaha!" appears. (ahaha)
1) Make a list of 15 characters.
2) Assign each character a number.
3) Without telling anyone who's on the list or the character's assigned number, get questions from your flist about what they'd like to know about them. IE: "If 3 and 4 were trapped in a cave together with only a blanket and a toothpick, what would they do?" The more random the better!
4) Post the answers and who was who on the list.

C'mon, people, hit me.

From [ profile] turps33.

In comments, tell me: What's your favorite story that I've written, and why?

(You don't have to say why. Just saying you liked - or even remembered! - a story I wrote will make me stupidly happy.)

Post the first line from your 25 most recent fanfics and try to find a pattern.

I'm using the most recently posted, as there are a couple I've recently finished that haven't seen the light of day yet.

Under here for the first lines! )

I'll leave y'all to draw your own conclusions about patterns.

Seriously - apart from there being a good whack of me opening with dialogue in here, what similarities can you see?

I still have June Bug pimps and master list updates to do. Will get to that tonight.

The very lovely [ profile] fan_elune has written me the most lovely Lucifer Box ficlet. She should be encouraged, so go read and comment!

And now for a meme )

That's all!
