Meme Overload!

We've got a couple fic commentary memes going around again, but this time, we've got an audience commentary meme in the mix, which just tickles me because, to be perfectly frank, I don't have to do anything to participate. *g*

Okay, my apologies - that's hideously unfair and selfish and partly in jest. Partly. In actuality, I'm just going to put the links out there and you can decide to do an audience commentary or request an author's commentary from me, though if you go with option number two, you may have to wait awhile depending on DRL/DRA (Darth Rheumatoid Arthritis). Bear in mind that it took me three months to finish my nine page D*C report. *g*

Eligible stuff can be found here, here, and even at vir_cotto_tm if you feel inclined to pick out one of the longer entries.

And I may go out there and do a few audience commentaries for you guys, but again, see above regarding three month lag times for con reports and the like.

In the meantime, some memes requiring less thought:

Reply to this post, and I'll tell you one/a lot of reasons why I like/love/adore you. Then post this in your LJ and share the love. (from selenak)

and

If you like, drop a comment with two (or one, or five, or any random number of things) things that the casual reader should know about this lj. Or would find interesting to know. Or amusing. Or a warn-off. Or something. (From leadensky, whom I love for making it so I don't have to talk about myself, because I hate doing that too. Trust me, in RL, I am terribly boring, con appearances aside.)

Just sharing the love ;-)

Reply to this post, and I'll tell you one/a lot of reasons why I like/love/adore you. Then post this in your LJ and share the love.

I already participated in this meme over at SelenaK's, but since I'm not exactly the most active LJ-er I'm a bit afraid, that if I copied it into my own journal, people would be hesitant to reply. So I'm making the round, turning the whole thing upside down...

I know we usually don't comment much on each others' post, but there is more than just one reason making me glad to have you on my friends list :-)

- your appreciation of "quiet" characters. Vir and Sinclair on B5. Aaron Shutt on Chicago Hope, Scott Guber on Boston Public.

- the courage and intelligence with which you address more complex and difficult fannish topics, and the fact that you speak up even if your opinion is an unpopular one.

- your ability to remain civil in the midst of heated political discussion. While I don't share your political convictions, you deserve a great deal of respect for the way you steered through that difficult election year...

All the best wishes for you and those dear to you! Have a good, peaceful Christmas time and take care!



Re: Just sharing the love ;-)

Thank you! *hugs*

As for you:

*clears throat*

I friended you not because I expected quantity, but because I expected quality. I can, believe it or not, be very patient when I know I'm going to read something fascinating.

Also, you like Vir. What's not to love? *g*

I expected quality. I can, believe it or not, be very patient when I know I'm going to read something fascinating.

Good to know :-)

About this lj -

Do not engage the lj-owner in B5 related discussion without ample time available. Side tracks and permetations abound.

And by the way: I love you because you're out of the political closet and are brave enough to publicly challenge LJ orthodoxy.

There's a closet? I could be hiding in the closet? And no one told me? *weeps, rends hair*

*g*

(As for the second part - like the scorpion said, 'tis my nature. If LJ was conservative, I'd be pointing holes at that.)

I'm so replying to the first one!

And as for the second. I think your journal may not be for everyone, but for those of us Babylon 5 fans out there, it's a very cool blog to read, especially with your fan fiction writing.
I love you because you actually want to be on D*C panels with me even though I'm loud and opinionated. ;)

And I love you because you have discipline. Me, I'm a slacker. I'll produce one short story a month at most.

Hey, I'd rather have someone like that than someone who was shy and reserved. And I thought I was an expert in Babylon 5, but you blew me away with everything you came up with! If I'd have felt better at the con, I'd have chatted you up long into the night about the series.

Well, this is a recent thing for me, so we'll see if I can keep it up. Having a set objective helps, though.
Share the love?

What you should know about hobsonphile's journal:

She tends to fangirl. Alot. About dark and angsty fandoms with badly damaged yet noble characters.

Those wanting angsting about real life and/or pity parites should look elsewhere.

She's passionate. Bashing her favourite characters (and those are not the most common ones, FYI) will be met with well-articulated and razor sharp counter arguments. You've been warned.

When she enters a meta debate, she enters swinging, and she's frequently right. Back up your arguments well, if you can.

Don't read her fanfic unless you are okay with being moved to tears and/or laughing in sheer delight, depending on her mood.

She can make PORN wholesome.
Scratch that last one - she can make tentical porn wholesome. You've been warned.
It's the last fact of which I'm most proud. *eg*

I love you because you write a fantastic Stark, and, much of the time, you fangirl about stuff I like. If you ever went to a con with me, I imagine we'd have a lot of fun.

And so your SHOULD be.

I love you because you write a fantastic Stark,

May I just say that coming from you, that's a hell of a complement?

and, much of the time, you fangirl about stuff I like.

Isn't it nice when that happens? :D I bore alot of my f'list silly...

If you ever went to a con with me, I imagine we'd have a lot of fun.

I cannot agree with that more!! Honestly, I think the main draw of a con for me would be meeting other fans at this point...
