1. What was your first fandom? The first thing you were obsessively fannish about? It doesn't have to be a tv show or movie. Hmmm. I'd have to say anime. From the time I was about 4 years old our local tv station (in Puerto Rico, no less) had this anime block that they played Saturday mornings. I used to watch it religiously. They played Robotech, Iczer, and a whole bunch of others that I only very vaguely remember. Then, after that, it was Kung-fu for the afternoon, at which time my brother joined me. ::grin::
So yeah, anime and kung-fu movies were my first fannish love.

2. Are you still interested in your first fandom or are you so over it? Still interested. I still check out the animation rack at any video store I walk into, but I never got into fic, though I know there is some.

3. What was your first zine/fic fandom? Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

4. What was your first online fandom? Buffy, as well.

5. What was your first livejournal fandom? It was probably Smallville, or HP. By the time I started reading LJs I had known they were around for about a year. At that point I was still getting my fic through mailing lists and posting boards, though. So I made the jump to LJ just around the time I got obsessed with Smallville and HP.
I love this series so much.

Black-as-night humor with a hint of underlying sweetness, tight storylines punctuated by clever dialogue, and characters that are both fallible and admirable, make for my ideal TV offering (see: 'Buffy').

This one got me right off the bat, and the season finale was absolutely perfect.

On a side note: I want George to be my new girlfriend.

I, fully cognizant that this observation is completely shallow, would like to say that any show that features beautiful boys working out their issues in a basketball court is alright by me.

Damn! I've got myself a brand new guilty pleasure.

Now I'm just going to sit back and wait for the incest!fic.

Yeah, baby! (or rather, I wish!)

Which DC Super Hero Am I? )

On other news:

--Tom Welling was ridiculously hot on The View and absolutely charming, to boot.

--Re-reading Smallville fic has brought back my fannish love, and now, I can't wait for Wednesday.

--Still love popslash; gives me yet another reason to check out Fandom Wank (as if Buffy, Smallville, and HP weren't enough.) ::smirk::

--I need a Smallville icon. Woe is me, might have to wade through pages upon pages of pictures of beautiful boys. Yeah!

I've been feeling *blah* about Smallville for a while now. The episodes before last season's finale just felt so *flat*. The finale itself, of course, kicked ass, because god forbid I ever manage to drop a show. LOL

As a result, I'm going into this season completely unspoiled. That hasn't happened since the first season of Buffy! I have to say, it's kinda nice. I don't know if I'll be able to maintain the unspoiled status for the whole season, but I think I'm going to try.

Now re-reading all the fic favorites in hopes of stoking my interest for the premiere. I don't think I can live on SDBs alone. I seem to have caught up on my reading there, and that means waiting for new fic to be posted. Although, I have to say, popslash is a *seriously* prolific fandom. It rocks.

[ profile] windowpane came over for the next step in his assimilation a little Buffy marathon.


We got up to the middle of the third season.

I'm always surprised by how much I love watching Buffy. I must have seen each of the episodes at least twice, but they're just as good on the third (coughthirtiethcough) viewing. I keep catching little lines of dialogue I loved and had forgotten about, or some hint of upcoming plot lines that makes me all giddy.

Ahh, I'm going to miss my show. I'll definitely have to watch Angel next week, but I will not be undone by nostalgia, damn it. The five episode rule will be upheld!

I also managed to get [ profile] windowpane started on Dead Like Me, which is my new love. So this time around, he can be the first convert, instead of the last.

I'm currently pondering whether drunkenness would remedy my boredom... I'm thinking yes.

Just watched every episode of the third season.

I've recently discovered that Sundays are my marathon days. I just love laying in bed and getting through an entire season's story arc in a day. I find that character motivations which originally escaped me become a lot clearer when I don't have a whole week in which to get pissed off and ranty about their actions.

A few thoughts:

+ I still think that Brian is one of only three fictional characters that have ever come close to who I am; Calanthe from the Wraeththu books by Storm Constantine and Faith from Buffy are the other two.

+ Justin still makes much more sense to me in the third season than he did in the second.

+ I love Daphne. I want more Daphne. "Your words, darling, not mine."

+ I do, in fact, watch "The Brian and Justin Show." Every other storyline, no matter how interesting at the time, is only filler in my mind.

I was just looking over the grid for the fall. Eeep!

Angel and Smallville on the same night. I knew the timeslots for both shows had changed and yet, I hadn't realized that the The WB had once again managed to make me its bitch for an entire night. Ahh, the memories!

I will be giving Angel a try for at least the first few eps (five, I'm going to say five), but if it shows any degree of suckitude at all, it will be abandoned forever. I really mean it this time! LOL

Other than that, I want to check out Tru Calling because Eliza Dushku is hot, and One Tree Hill because Chad Michael Murray is hot. Why, yes. I am shallow.

Does anyone else think that One Tree Hill has the potential to out-gay Smallville, The OC and, possibly, even QAF?

Maybe just me. ::smirk::

[ profile] mickeym asked; I answer. The thirteen fanfics I would want with me if I were stranded on a desert island. (Warning: Many fandoms below).

My Little Glass Shoe by Insomnitic and Mark Bolt
I never understood why this fic didn't make more of a splash in the Buffy fandom. It is the only fic that has ever made me believe in B/F. Buffy

Sotto Voce by Hth
I had issues choosing between this and Gonzo Sunset, but Sotto Voce wins out. It is a Tara POV poem, one good enough to make me think of Wallace Stevens, and that is the highest praise I can give it. Buffy

Divine Possession by the Spike
I still can't articulate why and how I love this fic. It's been a few years since the first time I read it. Yeah. Giles, Ethan, and Xander: a triptych of unfulfilled desire. Buffy

Cicatrix by Te, Debchan, and the Spike
The story that broke me and then made me anew in its image. If I hadn't read this, reading fanfiction would probably have been a phase for me. Buffy

Blasphemy by the Spike
The only reason I still occasionally try to find "Brimstone" fic. Brimstone

Moerae by Elizabeth
Made me cry. Anyone who knows me IRL knows just how difficult that is; and to do it in Roswell...
This story is just so moving, all about what we think we want versus what we need. Roswell

Max To The Max by Marianna
So deliciously twisted, I can't describe it. Roswell

"Tea" series by Telanu
These stories started out with so many handicaps for me: Not a pairing I was interested in (Snape/Harry), not a fandom I was following closely, a WIP... That I don't feel I can go without re-reading them periodically now is all the rec I can give. Harry Potter

Filios by Keieru
Short, concise, and utterly vicious; this story both disturbs me and seduces me. Harry Potter

the Identical series by Lanning Cook
Hmm, my favorite tall tale. I tend toward canon heavy stories, usually, but this series is so grounded in its dead-on and incisive characterization, that I often get it mixed up with the show in my head. Just wonderful. Plus, original characters I actually want to know more about. Smallville

The Rules Of Blue by Thamiris
With all the doom on the horizon in Smallville, the amount of humor in fic is impressive, but nothing compares to this story for me. Laugh out loud funny, hot, and still feels plausible. Smallville

Lick The Pavement by Wax Jism
Back to feeding my pervy nature, this story felt like a punch to the face accompanied by an orgasm. Smirking cynicism runs through it, and I'm a little scared to admit I sound like this a lot in my own head. Popslash (Eminem/JC Chasez)

Remember by Jae
So, so good. I use this story to capture the unwary and trap them in popslash. If you've ever had a single friend torture you with stories of what you did the-night-before-the-morning-after, you need to read this, regardless of fandom. Popslash

gacked from [ profile] musesfool:

Fandoms I don't participate in (in my case, that means reading), and what I have gathered about them from my flist:

Firefly: Big with the incest vibes; OMG! Cancelled! Whyyyyyyyy?

The OC: The new gay. Has guy I thought was both creepy and unattractive in Smallville's Crush in it in some capacity.

Stargate SG-1: Mmmm...Boy in glasses is hot; he and army guy are sooo MFEO.

Homicide: At some point jumped the shark, ending left everyone in tears.

Oz: Two words: Prison. Sex.

Highlander: Methos and Duncan must have f*cked at some point, right?!?!

JLA: Yeah, tights are gay.

Jeremiah: No one is slashing this and someone should be.

Blake's 7 (sp?): Still have no clue. Except maybe that fandom was supposedly much more polite then... or maybe that's The Professionals; I get them mixed up.

My fandoms, past and present: Buffy, Angel, Roswell, X-Files, Brimstone, Queer As Folk, Smallville, Harry Potter, Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter, Good Omens, Popslash, Everwood, X-Men comics, and movieverse.

I have only one thing to say.

I want my Britney/Madonna/Christina, and I want it now!

::taps foot::
He called me back for the beatbox!

I love Mike! There is not enough love in the world for Mike!

Ok, I'm currently sitting at my computer with my phone to my ear, bouncing up and down in my chair, as my friend Mike, who works at Axis, lets me listen to CMAR.

It is soooo sad that hearing this through a scratchy cell can make me this happy.

I'll probably squeal and do all kinds of "things umbecoming a (former, lapsed?) goth" if I manage to get tickets to the Avalon show on the 29th.

Best part so far: "all the things people told me keep f***ing with my head." Dude. Why is it so hot when SDBs swear?
