End of year fandom meme
Thursday 22nd December 2016 6:58 pm

1. Your main fandom of the year?
I couldn't decide how to count this, so I looked back through my blog and I talked about Doctor Who, Red Dwarf, Star Trek, The Bill, The Avengers, The Guild and Star Wars.

2. Your favourite film watched this year?
The only films I've seen this year have been Star Trek, Fantastic Beasts and Finding Dory. I liked them all pretty equally, but if you were to hold a sword to my neck and force me to choose, I'd go for Finding Dory.

3. Your favourite book read this year?
I looked back through my Reading Wednesday posts and there's nothing that particularly stands out.

4. Your favourite TV show of the year?
Red Dwarf XI. "He shouts formica and invents gravy." Can't be beaten.

5. Your favourite online fandom community of the year?
LJ and DW, being my only online fandom communities.

6. Your best new fandom discovery of the year?
The Guild and Green Gables Fables. I rattled through both of those pretty quick.

7. Your biggest fandom disappointment of the year?
Maybe the news that the new Star Trek TV series is going to be on Netflix. Or no Graeme Garden on ISIHAC.

8. Your TV boyfriend of the year?
I suppose the man that was on my TV that I was most excited about was Tosh Lines.

9. Your TV girlfriend of the year?
Felicia Day.

10. Your biggest squee moment of the year?
Charlene being back in The Librarians.

11. The most missed of your old fandoms?
Reading SGA Santa fics has made me miss Stargate Atlantis. Watching late 1980s The Bill makes me miss that it's not on anymore.

12. The fandom you haven't tried yet, but want to?
I think I have quite enough to be going on with, thank you.

13. Your biggest fan anticipations for the New Year?
Red Dwarf XII. Although that won't be until autumn, so that's more my fan anticipation for next year. For New Year it's more Charlene on The Librarians, as I'm assuming/hoping she'll be back at the end of the season (I am happily unspoilered).

Tell me you want to play and I'll pick up to three of your fandoms. Then update your journal and answer the following questions:

1. What got you into this fandom in the first place?
2. Do you think you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?
3. Favourite episodes/books/movies, etc?
4. Do you participate in this fandom (fanfiction, graphics, discussions)?
5. Do you think more people should get into this fandom?

[info]lost_spook gave me Spooks, Blake's 7, Chalet School.

I was going to be all productive today, but then I wasn't much. I did play with the cat in the garden a bit. I hadn't seen him since Christmas and now he's a fully grown cat. Pictures to follow once I get round to uploading them.

But I did sort out, with my sister, what Olympics tickets we want to apply for. We ended up with the maximum number of sessions at £1550 between us... But think we'll only get half of them, if we're lucky, so it won't cost too much. And it'll be the price of a holiday, so it'll be my holiday for the year.

In an effort to wake me up from the hot weather and holiday stupor, have a meme, that I saw on [info]lost_spook's LJ:

Give me the name of a character and I will tell you the following:
1. How I FEEL about this character
2. All the people I ship romantically with this character
3. My non-romantic OTP for this character
4. My unpopular opinion about this character
5. One thing I wish would happen/had happened with this character in canon.

PS Doctor Who was good, I liked it. And if anyone's not following Stephen Fry on Twitter, who announced it this morning, John Sullivan (writer of Only Fools and Horses) has died. It's clearly that sort of week.

Fandom meme
Sunday 3rd January 2010 10:23 pm

I am going to bed really. I just got used to going to bed about 11pm ish and waking up at 9am ish. I just have to get used to getting up at 7.30am when it is dark and cold.

First, a toast - to the Professor, since it is Tolkien's birthday.

And a meme from [info]melliyna that looked fun:

Pick a fandom! And then I will say who from the fandom I would...

1. bake cupcakes for:
2. trust with the keys to my car (if I had a car):
3. put thumbtacks* on their chair:
4. have a crush on:
5. pack up and leave if they moved next door:
6. vote for President:
7. pick as my partner in a buddy movie:
8. pair up:
9. vote off the island and into the volcano:
10. wheedle into fixing my MP3 player:

*Bonus question: What's a thumbtack? Is it a drawing pin?

Top 5 meme responses
Thursday 13th August 2009 9:01 pm

[info]hhertzof asked for top five bunnies (real or fictional)

Since it was supposed to be a fannish top five, I thought I ought to go for fictional ones:
1. Pancakes (The OC)
2. Anya's bunnies (Buffy)
3. The bunny from Pulling Princes etc
4. The ones on my ruler my sister brought me back from France
5. Er, now I've run out. That was a hard list to do

[info]hhertzof asked for five Chalet School characters who should have travelled with the Doctor:
1. Joey - she'd have loved the adventure
2. Jack - I think she'd have surprised the Doctor by understanding the TARDIS and knowing how to fix it
3. Jem - it would certainly open his eyes
4. Miss Annersly - the Doctor would have obeyed her every command 🙂
5. All of Joey's children at once - because it would be funny

[info]melliyna asked for top 5 parent and child relationship moments:
1. Jo leaving the Doctor because it's so sad
2. Elrond giving Aragorn Anduril in the ROTK film because you don't get many parent/child moments with those two, apart from in the Appendix. And also it's a very beautiful sword
3. Sarah talking about her parents with Luke
4. When Mickey tells Jack about being raped
5. Qui-Gon dying and Obi-Wan being all upset because that was so sad too. Er, it's all about the sad stuff really...

[info]lost_spook asked for top five Harry moments (I won't necessarily specify which Harry, that's up to you) and I was going to do Harry Sullivan, except I realised I already have (and amazingly, managed five too). So I did Harry Pearce instead and this probably shows my lack of memory of Spooks specificness:

1. When Ruth calls him and asks him to come round to hers and he pauses, not sure what she's actually asking
2. In the last series, taking off his tie and killing the man following him
3. I forget what actually happened now, but the start of the series before last where he orders a bombing, or something like that
4. At the end of the one with the bombing of Parliament Square where he turns out to be alright in the end and for a moment everyone would've cheerfully strangled him for knowingly putting him through that
5. When he knows he's about to be pulled in, but sits quietly with his drink and his music and waits for them

Midsomer Murders and a meme
Monday 10th August 2009 9:44 pm

I've just watched the latest three episodes of Midsomer Murders. They always take me a while to get round to because they're so slow you have to do something else while they're on. It was quite surreal because the first one had Vila from Blakes 7 in, the second had Peter Davison and the Borg Queen (and a couple of other people I recognised but couldn't be bothered to look up) and the last had that woman from Ultraviolet - with exactly the same hairstyle. Although it says everything about my visual memory that I can't remember if it's the same colour and I only saw Ultraviolet a few months ago.

And now for the meme that's been going round and I hadn't got round to putting up yet:

Ask me my fannish Top Five [Whatevers]. Any top fives. Doesn't matter what, really! And I will answer them all in a new post. Possibly with pictures.*

* There won't be pictures.

Fandom meme
Wednesday 5th March 2008 8:35 pm

I had to go to bed last night even though I hadn't got everything done. So then because my brain was still working I couldn't sleep. I was fine this morning but once I got past lunchtime it's been a struggle. So now I've got back from my meeting, I've given myself the rest of the night off, so I'm going to watch Monday night's program on Black Holes that I thought was on on Tuesday. Thank goodness for 4oD. Slightly brain dead is probably the best state to watch physics for the masses because it tends to be too simplistic (cf last night's Horizon about searching for intelligent life).

But in the meantime, a meme from and :

Give me a fandom and I'll tell you...

1. The first character I 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 would sleep with anytime
6. The character I'd want to be like
7. The character I'd slap
8. Favourite character
9. Five favourite characters
10. Five least favourite characters
11. Character I am most like
12. DEEP DARK SECRET REGARDING THIS FANDOM
13. A pairing (or more!) I love
14. A pairing (or more!) I despise
15. Five favourite things about the fandom
16. Five least favourite things about the fandom

My Doctor Who fanon
Monday 29th October 2007 11:00 pm

Everyone and his dog seems to be doing this meme this evening. I wanted to do it because I am yet to see anyone agree with no 1:

1. The Doctor at no point fancied or slept with any of his companions, except Benny. None of them ever fancied him, except Martha. Which is not to say that none of the rest never loved him, or he never loved them, it's just a platonic love.

1a. The only companions who had any romantic feelings for each other were Ian & Barbara and Steven & Dodo, but nothing ever happened while they were travelling with the Doctor.

1b. The following pairs of Doctor/Companion had parent/child-like relationships:
Three & Jo, Five & Adric, Seven & Ace

2. The Doctor came to like Earth after he and Susan lived there for five months - it's the longest he's lived anywhere apart from Gallifrey, so it feels a bit like home.

3. After they get back to Earth Ian and Barbara get married and live a long and boring life, which makes them both very happy. Ian doesn't realise he loves her until he's faced with the prospect of not seeing her all the time. Barbara works it out far sooner.

4. Steven and Dodo had a crush on each other but neither of them quite got round to doing anything about it.

5. Steven was good at being the leader of a group of people he'd not known long. So good, in fact, that once he introduced him to the idea of democracy they got rid of him.

6. As much as he complained about travelling in the TARDIS, afterwards Harry couldn't quite go back to an ordinary life. Which is why he ended up working for MI-5 and NATO and going on hush-hush missions.

7. Sarah and Harry love each other like brother and sister - which is to say that they snipe and bicker and compete about everything but are really the best of friends.

8. Nat is Sarah and Harry's daughter.

9. Harry's not dead.

10. Season 27 happened in that eventually Ace ends up on Gallifrey and shakes the Time Lords up rather a lot.

From Jen

Name either a character or a relationship between characters (not necessarily romantic) from canons I know and I will a.) give my rambling opinion of him/her/it and b.) tell you one thing I really like about him/her/it.

(On another note I'm really liking how in 2.3 it doesn't automatically tag all posts as Uncategorized - I keep forgetting to untick it and end up posting in lots of categories, including Uncategorized)

Ian love
Wednesday 16th May 2007 10:09 pm

(oh, how much can that title be misconstrued?)

I got a comment spam on LJ and decided to forestall the inevitable. So if you want to comment now you need an LJ account and need to be logged into it. If you don't have one, then you can comment on the blog as long as you can answer a simple maths question.

Having watched four First Doctor stories, I really like Ian. And I've discovered there's a story where they go to the French Revolution, which I definitely have to see. My next amazon DVD is The Aztecs, which is apparently where Barbara is great, so I am looking forward to that.

I have also started posting Doctor Who: The Soap Opera: The Sequel (yes, it's a sillier title than the original) on sarahjane_fic with a new chapter daily.

And a meme, stolen from a few people:
Name a character and I'll tell you three (or more) facts about them from my own personal pseudo-canon.

Stargate Atlantis meme
Saturday 17th March 2007 9:26 pm

It's Sel's idea, although I started it. Since I am staying spoiler-free, I know there's a rumour about Elizabeth in Atlantis season 4, but I don't know what it is, and intend for it to stay that way.

What is much more fun, I'm sure, is to play guess the rumour. Funniest/craziest gets the most laughs, since there's no actual prize.
