samatethecookie: (ser pounce-a-lot)
So, does anyone follow any writing communities on this site, or know where to find writing exercises and memes?

Life's a little boring, otherwise. I do need to use this journal more often, and I've become a bit unsociable, so um. Time to change that! Want to do a silly fandom meme? :D

Name a fandom you know I know and I'll tell you

1. The first character I first fell in love with
2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now
3. The character everyone else loves that I don’t
4. The character I love that everyone else hates
5. The character I used to love but don’t any longer
6. The character I would totally smooch
7. The character I’d want to be like
8. The character I’d slap
9. A pairing that I love
10. A pairing that I despise

If you don't know my fandoms, feel free to take a look here!

So what does an awesome lady do in the wee hours of the morning after writing smut? Why, she posts an icon meme because she's bored! She takes a particular one hiding in the journal of an RPG character from way back, borrows the code and puts some of the icons in it. Also, said-lady may or may not continue to refer to herself in the third person until the end of this entry.

So! Icon meme stolen from [ profile] cheriestar. Because I can.

Look at your LJ userpics list. If you have fewer than 50 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. If you have fewer than ten, pick all of ‘em. If you have fewer than 20, pick every other. List them on your LJ, and tell everyone exactly why you have it, why it’s interesting to you, what significance does it have.

The icons, plus some text/explanations... )

Meme time! Since I haven't been updating my journal with these in awhile, it's about time.

[ profile] elle_white gave me five questions. If you comment on this entry, I'll ask you a few questions. For now, here's my answers:

Questions and Answers... )

Then [ profile] analeisa was kind enough to provide me fandoms for this meme. <3

Leave a comment on this post and I will pick three of your fandoms. Then you get to answer the following questions:

1. The first character I first fell in love with:
2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now:
3. The character everyone else loves that I don't:
4. The character I love that everyone else hates:
5. The character I used to love but don't any longer:
6. The character I would shag anytime:
7. The character I'd want to be like:
8. The character I'd slap:
9. A pairing that I love:
10. A pairing that I despise:
11. Favorite character:
12. My five favorite characters:
13. My five least favorite characters:
14. Which character I am most like:
15. My deep, dark fandom secret:

Avatar, Sailor Moon, Teen Titans... )

And finally, I would love to get some prompts for this one, if you'd be so kind.

Give me a pairing and I will:
1. Tell you who I think tops
2. Who has the prettiest hair
3. What their children will be named
4. Which one would be the loudest during sex
5. My ideal scenario for them

Stole this meme from other people and because I keep seeing it pop up on LJ. I'm too lazy to work on the other memes at the moment, and this seems easy peasy. D:

Give me a character and I'll list the first three other characters I'd ship them with.
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (Default) life is boring, and I've pretty much been ignoring LJ lately since something weird's going on with it. Instead of exciting you with an entry about that, have a meme that I keep meaning to post.

Pick any (or several) character from a fandom of mine and I'll answer the following questions:

1) What is your opinion of this character? If you like, explain why you like him/her.

2) Is he/she important to the general plot?

3) Can you relate to this character at all? Does he/she grip you emotionally?

4) How much do you like the fandom that this character comes from?

5) Do you ship this character with any other character? Or, are you particularly intrigued by his/her relationship with any other character(s)? (romance-wise or platonic)

6) Is there anything about the character you would change?

7) If you were in the fandom with this character or knew this character in real life, how would you see yourself interacting with him/her?

8) Does this character make the cut as one of your all time favorites (if you like) or least favorites?

9) Would you hype up this character (if you like) or warn about this character (if you dislike) to someone new to fandom?

10) Is this character popular with the fanbase?

Also, the meme here is also sad and lonely (and I forgot all about it after I posted it nearly a month ago. um, oops?), so if you feel like contributing, go ahead!
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (what'cha doing?)
And since I'm so nice, I'm putting this meme behind a cut so it won't overload your friends list. )

Well! That was fun. Now unfortunately I have a job. Woe.

(Btw: I've purchased and started playing Dragon Age: Awakening. Without spoiling anything, Anders in DA2 >>>> Anders in Awakening. I don't even know who this impostor is.)

Edit: Derp. Go fig I would forget to put the code for this meme in this entry. Here it is.
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (I promise I'll show you love)
My journal's been too depressing lately. Here, a meme I stole from tumblr!

Comment with a fandom and I'll give you:

- 3 favorite relationships
- 3 favorite characters
- 3 favorite moments
- 3 reasons I like/love that fandom

... And just for kicks, if you're interested, since I've been on a music kick lately.

Give me a character/relationship/fandom and I'll name at least one song that reminds me of them.

You should know my fandoms by now. If not, feel free to check out my icons or the listing here for a better idea. (I'm aware that my listing gives away ships, but I'll try and sum up my main three for this meme.)

Real life business: Dragon Age 2 is still a project. Been meaning to pick up my transcript from college but haven't gotten around to it yet. Finally got out of the house and went shopping at the mall today and picked up a lot of cute stuff - and I had a Nostalgia Bomb drop on me when I discovered my favorite Backstreet Boys CD on sale at FYE for $5. It's the same one I played on repeat when I was twelve or thirteen. NO REGRETS!
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (91)
Found this on tumblr! It looks fun, and I could use a distraction after a crappy day at work.

Give me a fandom, and I'll give you...

1. My het OTP:
2. My slash OTP:
3. My femslash OTP:
4. My endgame OTP:
5. My original OTP:
6. My crack OTP:
7. My guilty pleasure OTP:
8. My anti-OTP:

Yeah, I realize that I have a listing of fandoms and my ships, but some of them didn't make the list yet so ... ask away. There's bound to be some surprises. Ask for any fandom you think I'd be familiar with, or just look at my userpics for a closer look. If I have a hard time with a fandom you give me, I'll let you know. (Also, yes, Sev, you can ask for original characters for shits and giggles.)

I'm getting to work on those drabbles to the icon meme! In the meantime, here's another meme, because I really need to lighten up this blog of mine.

Leave me a TV show/movie/fandom and I'll tell you,

* favorite character:
* best dressed character:
* prettiest character:
* funniest character:
* character I want to hug:
* character I love to hate:
* character I want to marry:
* character most likely to be my best friend:
* an unpopular opinion about a character:

If you're not sure which fandom to ask me, look here. Or throw me any fandom you think I'd be somewhat familiar with. Whatever, I'm open to anything right now.
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (Default)
I've only just started writing the drabbles that [ profile] cheriestar gave me, but I'll post the meme now in case anyone else wants to hit it up.

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick six of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and write a drabble about (each of) 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.

I got the following icons. When I finished writing a drabble for them, I'm going to post them at [ profile] pwnworks and link to the stories through the icons. It's ah, going to take me a little bit to get them all written since I haven't touched fanfiction in ages. :D;


Happy New Years!
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (Default)
Since I've already filled this journal with lots of complaints about my stupid job and my stupid chest cold, I'll spare you and give you this fandom meme instead. I'll try and blog some more cheerful things after I get off from work tonight! (Because hahahah, spoiler alert: I have no plans. I never do because I hate New Years celebrations.)

1. Your main fandom of the year: I rediscovered Sailor Moon and blogged the hell out of it on my Tumblr. (Especially after I saw the lack of Nephrite/Naru spam on the site. I WAS FILLED WITH RAGE, and then I got off my lazy ass and did it myself.) So there's that.

2. Your favorite Film this year: For films released this year, I've ... surprisingly seen quite a few of them! Scott Pilgrim, How To Train Your Dragon, Despicable Me, Toy Story 3, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Out of all of those, I have to say that Toy Story 3 was my favorite, purely for the nostalgia factor and how it broke my heart. As for movies I've seen generally the whole year, it's a tie between The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and Star Trek.

3. Your favorite Book read this year: Unfortunately I haven't gotten much reading done this year. :/ I'm starting to get back into the groove, though. I read "Lighthousekeeping" by Jeanette Winterson this year, and everyone should read at least one of her books because she's amazing. ("Written on the Body," if you're looking for a specific recommendation from me.)

4. Your favorite Album or Song this year: Somehow I ended up loving a lot of Lady Gaga! Which I didn't expect because her song "Just Dance" annoyed me when it came out. And even that grew on me.

5. Your favorite TV Show this year: I discovered How I Met Your Mother. And Community. AMAZING, I ACTUALLY WATCHED TV SHOWS THAT AREN'T CARTOONS OR ANIME THIS YEAR.

6. Your favorite LJ Community this year: Uh. idk. None in particular.

7. Your best new Fandom Discovery of the Year? ...Good question! Revolutionary Girl Utena was my earliest, and I'm so glad I waited until I was older to watch it. I didn't really know what to feel after watching it the first time around, but then my love for it smacked me right in the face a few weeks later. Other discoveries include Baccano! and Toradora! And I also got around to reading the entire manga of Full Metal Alchemist. It's much more satisfying than the first anime series. (a-and Harvest Moon games apparently are the bestest things. Don't judge me.)

8. Your biggest Fandom Disappointment of the Year? Final Fantasy XIII. Was it a good game? Yes. Was it a good Final Fantasy game? Hell no.

9. Your TV Boyfriend of the year: Um, does this mean favorite male character or something along those lines? Whatever, I'ma just put Sazh from Final Fantasy XIII here because I think he deserved better than the fandom he's stuck in.

10. Your TV Girlfriend of the year: Orihime! Why do I keep falling back in love with you? And Anthy! You're so confusing, yet I adore you for that.

11. Your biggest Squee moment of the year? As [ profile] escalove already said, the end of FMA. Both sad yet so freaking happy it ended the way it did.

12. Your most Missed Old Fandom? Sailor Moon. Come on, Funimation, redub it already! It deserves it.

13. Your Fandom that you haven't Tried Yet, but want to: I can't think of any in particular. Anything that I want to try, I go ahead and do it in the moment, and drop it very quickly if I don't like it.

14. Your Biggest Anticipations of the New Year: Avatar: The Legend of Korra!
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (somewhere underneath your skin)
Stolen from a couple of folks on my flist.

Give me something to talk about; I have both no shame and a lot of spare time, so give me any fandom-related topic you like, and I'll turn on my metaphorical microphone and then write up the result.

I'll try and give you guys prompts tonight or tomorrow. I work the circus all. day. tomorrow. With kids. Starting at 9AM. And I don't think I get out until 10PM. Help. :(
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (Default)
So I see that a few people on my flist have either done this meme already, or they're getting around to completing it. I wanted to give a crack at it. I'm not sure if I played too many games that will let me fill out all of the prompts, but I'm going to try. Here goes nothing!

Day 01 - Very first video game. )

I'm going to work a Bulls game today. Tomorrow, it's my birthday and thankfully I have the day off! (And this was without me even requesting the day off.) HOORAY FOR SLEEP.
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (:<)
Well! My morning's started off shitty so far, so let's start with a quick meme I saw on Tumblr and I had to share because it's kind of awesome.

Here are the rules:

1 - Go to the Superpower Wiki.
2 - Click the “Random page” button on the left hand side once. Only once.
3 - Revel (or dismay) in the fact that this is your new superpower. But I bet it’s awesome even if it’s crappy…

I got Mask Powers. Uh. Yeah. Lamest super power ever, but that's because I hate wearing things on my head so there you go. (Seriously, though, even though it's crappy, at least the abilities granted through masks are kind of awesome?)

On the plus side, Wicked's coming back to Chicago. YAY.

Because I'm a negative nancy: still can't afford tickets for The Lion King broadway. NO YAY.
samatethecookie: (I love you more than rainbows)
The problem with LiveJournal is that we think we're close, but really, we know nothing about each other.

So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me, something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about, or something you've always been curious about but have never asked, or something completely silly that you'd like me to answer for kicks. No limits on the range of questions, either: ask me anything you want to know about, whether it's a fannish opinion or a question about a fic of mine or trivia about my real life or my thoughts on events in the offline world.

Because I'm bored, I still haven't gotten around to 30 day meme prompts, and I saw this popping up everywhere.
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (Default)
Well! I'm going to get started on these 30 Day Memes.

The first one is a general shipping meme I took from [profile] escalove/[personal profile] qwertyuiop and the second one is an anime meme I discovered a few weeks ago. Instead of doing one prompt at a time, I'm going to try and squeeze in three, because I've seen a few people doing it that way, and it's going to be easier for me to complete them this way. YES, I'M CHEATING. Overlook that, please.

Favorite het ship, favorite yaoi ship, favorite yuri ship... )

The rest of the prompts for shipping meme... )

Very first anime, favorite anime I've watched so far, anime crush... )

The rest of the prompts for the anime meme... )

samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (is there room for one more song?)
I found a few more of those 30 day memes that genuinely interest me. I know everyone and their mother is doing these 30 day memes lately, including myself, so Instead of spamming the hell out of my journal and annoying you guys, I'm going to do them over at Dreamwidth instead, since I barely use my journal at all. (And I think I might post a couple prompts a day like I've seen other people do with their memes.)

Just thought I'd give a heads-up for anybody who's interested in reading about my fannish opinions. And I'm always going to link back to previous posts when I update regularly.
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (how I loathe writer's block)
Ask me one fandom-related question in the comments. This can be fandomspecific, general, or about fandom/lj stuff/fic writing/etc. in general.

Because I'm bored and I haven't really updated with the memes in awhile. Took this from [ profile] cheriestar.
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (dress in drag and do the hula?!)
* reply to this post with "the Narcoleptic Tango" and I will pick six of your icons.
* make a post (including this info) and talk about the icons I chose.
* other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
* this will create a never ending cycle of icon glee.

The icons that cheriestar gave to me ... )
