Your challenge is to write crossover fanfiction combining Scrubs and Heroes.
The story should use same-sex relationships as a plot device!

I think I might have actually seen that one already...

This, however, would be hilariously cheesy and bad in a most awesome way:

Your challenge is to write crossover fanfiction combining Gilligan's Island and Dragonball Z.
The story should use alternate dimensions as a plot device!

Okay, so I've been trying to write fic, but life is kicking me in the ass these days. So, to prove that I AM still here and I WILL be posting fic sooner than later...I'm going to try this meme.

Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 25 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Strike through when somebody gets them right
Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!



I have to fudge it a little, because half of the music on my iPod is bound to be from a soundtrack and have NO lyrics or be an obscure French song. Also, I'm eliminating songs that have the title in the first line because where is the fun in that?

 

1. You think I'm pretty without any makeup on; you think I'm funny when I tell the punch line wrong.

2. Hold me like the river Jordan and I will then say to thee "you are my friend".

3. Thought you had all the answers to rest your heart upon, but something happens - don't see it comin' - now you can't stop yourself.

4. In a church, by the face, he talks about the people going under. Only child knows... Crazy - Seal, me because nobody would ever recognize those lyrics. ;)

5. Can't see nothin' in front of me, can't see nothin' coming up behind. I make my way through this darkness - I can't feel nothing but these chains that bind.

6. Out of the ruins, out from the wreckage; can't make the same mistakes this time.

7. Of all the things I believed in, I just want to get it over with - tears form behind my eyes, but I do not cry.

8.  I don't wanna be the girl who laughs the loudest, or the girl who never wants to be alone.

9. Holly came from Miami FLA, hitchhiked her way across the USA. Plucked her eyebrows on the way, shaved her legs and then he was a she.

10. How can you see into my eyes like open doors - leading you down into my core where I've become so numb?

11. I am so high I can hear heaven.

12. I have often dreamed of a far off place, where a hero's welcome would be waiting for me.

13. Your butt is mine, gonna tell you right. Just show your face in broad daylight.  - Bad - Michael Jackson, [livejournal.com profile] julis_dh 

14. Many times I tried to tell you, many times I cried alone...always I'm surprised how well you cut my feelings to the bone.

15. Where is the moment we needed the most? You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost. -- Bad Day - Daniel Powter, Sylvia Arnold

16. Harry Truman, Dorris Day, Red China, Johnny Ray, South Pacific, Walter Winchell, Joe DiMaggio. -- We Didn't Start the Fire - Billy Joel, [livejournal.com profile] julis_dh 

17. There's something wrong with the world today, I don't know what it is. Something's wrong with our eyes.

18. I know you want pop, you want dance, you want rock and roll, you want it boom boom this year's remix got symphonic soul

19. This time, this place. Misused, mistakes. Too long, too late, who was I to make you wait?

20. If God had a name, what would it be and would you call it to his face if you were faced with him in all his glory? What would you ask if you had just one question? One of Us - Joan Osbourne, [livejournal.com profile] fashionparis 

21. Oh the shark, babe, has pretty teeth, dear; and he shows 'em pearly whites.

22. You only see what your eyes want to see - how can life be what you want it to be? Frozen - Madonna, [livejournal.com profile] julis_dh 

23. Every night in my dreams, I see you, I feel you. That is how I know you go on.  - My Heart Will Go On - Celine Dion, [livejournal.com profile] sylaire87 

24. Your fingertips across my skin, the palm trees swaying in the wind: images.

25. We got the afternoon, you got this room for two...one thing I've left to do: discover me discovering you.
diandrahollman: (movies)
ETA - Guess it's safe to reveal the answers on this one now...sorry. :)


Don't know who started this meme going again, but thank you. :) I'm sure I could come up with a lot more movies, but these were the first 15 I could think of.

Pick 15 of your favorite movies.
Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
Post them here for everyone to guess.
Strike out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
NO GOOGLING/using IMDb search functions.

1. "What was it we had for dinner tonight?"
"Well, we had a choice of steak or fish."
"Yes, yes, I remember, I had lasagna."
-- Airplane!, [livejournal.com profile] julis_dh 

2. Nino is late. Amelie can only see two explanations. 1 - he didn't get the photo. 2 - before he could assemble it, a gang of bank robbers took him hostage. The cops gave chase. They got away... but he caused a crash. When he came to, he'd lost his memory. An ex-con picked him up, mistook him for a fugitive, and shipped him to Istanbul. There he met some Afghan raiders who took him to steal some Russian warheads. But their truck hit a mine in Tajikistan. He survived, took to the hills, and became a Mujaheddin. Amelie refuses to get upset for a guy who'll eat borscht all his life in a hat like a tea cozy. -- Amelie

3. "Lloyd, let me just say one thing, since we've stopped. I've worked with a lotta directors. Some of them were geniuses, some of them were bastards. But I've never met one who was so totally and absolutely... I don't know."
"Thank you Gary, I'm very touched. Now will you get off the fucking stage?" -- Noises Off! (LOVE this movie!)

4. "Have you found Jesus yet, ________?" (Gump)
"I didn't know I was supposed to be looking for him, sir."
-- Forrest Gump, [livejournal.com profile] julis_dh 

5. I'll tell you a riddle. You're waiting for a train, a train that will take you far away. You know where you hope this train will take you, but you don't know for sure. But it doesn't matter. How can it not matter to you where that train will take you?  -- Inception, [livejournal.com profile] janie_tangerine 

6. "Oh, I'm sick of messages from the front. Don't we ever get a message from the side? - What is it?"
"General Smith reports a gas attack. He wants to know what to do."
"Tell him to take a teaspoonful of bicarbonate of soda and a half a glass of water." -- Duck Soup (gotta love Groucho Marx)

7. "Are you suggesting madam that there exists a law compelling a gentleman to lay hold of canine bowel movements?"
"I'm suggesting that you pick the poop up."
  -- Kate & Leopold, Sylvia Arnold

8. "God, not those finger paintings again. They certainly were a waste of money."
"The difference between Cal's taste in art and mine is that I have some. They're fascinating. It's like being inside a dream or something. There's truth but no logic."
"What's the artist's name?"
"Something Picasso."
"Something Picasso? He won't amount to a thing."
-- Titanic, [livejournal.com profile] janie_tangerine 

9. "I have discovered the Holy Grail of science. In two years, I can cure children's leukemia. How many people on Earth can say that?"
"I guess just you and God. But that's the answer you want, isn't it?" -- The Island

10. "This sash was a gift to me, from the Queen of America."
"There's no queen of America!"
"I beg to differ, infant. We're on quite intimate terms, unless you can prove otherwise." -- The Three Musketeers

11. Can't you understand? That if you take a law like evolution and you make it a crime to teach it in the public schools, tomorrow you can make it a crime to teach it in the private schools? And tomorrow you may make it a crime to read about it. And soon you may ban books and newspapers. And then you may turn Catholic against Protestant, and Protestant against Protestant, and try to foist your own religion upon the mind of man. If you can do one, you can do the other. Because fanaticism and ignorance is forever busy, and needs feeding. And soon, your Honor, with banners flying and with drums beating we'll be marching backward, BACKWARD, through the glorious ages of that Sixteenth Century when bigots burned the man who dared bring enlightenment and intelligence to the human mind! -- Inherit the Wind

12. Throughout human history, we have been dependent on machines to survive. Fate, it seems, is not without a sense of irony.  -- The Matrix, [livejournal.com profile] julis_dh 

13. I was a warrior who dreamed he could bring peace. Sooner or later though, you always have to wake up. -- Avatar

14. Now you listen to me, I'm an advertising man, not a red herring. I've got a job, a secretary, a mother, two ex-wives and several bartenders that depend upon me, and I don't intend to disappoint them all by getting myself "slightly" killed. -- North By Northwest (my favorite Hitchcock movie)

15. "Why'd you catch that?"
"Because it was going to fall."
"You're certain?"
"Yeah."
"But it didn't fall. You caught it. The fact that you prevented it from happening doesnt change the fact that it was *going* to happen." -- Minority Report

Comment with "ACTION!" and I will give you ten actors and ten actresses. Then post in your livejournal with your favorite films of theirs


From [livejournal.com profile] siluria ...


Men
Paul Newman - My knee jerk instinct is to say "The Sting", but I really liked "Road to Perdition".
Tom Cruise - "Valkyrie" was really good, but I have to go with "Minority Report".
Dustin Hoffman - I guess I have to go with "Rain Man" since that is one of the few good movies from the 80s that has withstood the test of time.
Leonardo DiCaprio - I haven't seen "Inception" yet, so while that might be my answer in a couple months when it comes out on video, right now I have to go with "Titanic". I always had an obsession with the Titanic and James Cameron totally exploited it in the most jaw-dropping of ways.
Tom Hanks - Yikes, that is way too many good choices to choose from! (Well, except I can easily throw "Joe VS the Volcano", "Ladykillers" and "Bonfire of the Vanities" out of the running). He did a lot of good movies that I would see again in a heartbeat, but "Forest Gump" keeps floating to the top of my mind as the "best" of all of them.
Robert Redford - I'm sure "Out of Africa" was a great movie, but I found it a little hard to focus on the plot whenever he was onscreen because MAN was he pretty. I remember thinking "wow, what a message" at the end of "Lions for Lambs", but I can't remember what that message was now. "Spy Game" was a surprisingly great thriller (and it had Brad Pitt! Bonus points!). And I loved his character in "An Unfinished Life". The banter between him and Morgan Freeman was priceless.
Bruce Willis - "Armageddon". Just kidding. *ducks rotten fruit* Ahem. I have to go with "Die Hard" for action movies and "The Sixth Sense" for everything else.
Matthew McConaughey - I think I'm one of those precious few people who really liked "Contact". But I'd still probably have to go with "Amistad". Or "A Time to Kill" if I could remember it.
Tobey Maguire - "Spiderman". The first one. As far as I'm concerned, the other two both sucked.
Vin Diesel - *searches IMDB filmography for something recognizable* He was in "Saving Private Ryan"? Okay, well, I'll have to go with that.

Ladies
Cameron Diaz - I know it's only her voice, but I have to go with "Shrek".
Marilyn Monroe - "Some Like it Hot". No contest. (Of course, I haven't seen "The Misfits" yet...)
Judy Dench - "Chocolat" or "Golden Eye" depending on my mood. I know she was in "Shakespere in Love" for, like, ten minutes, but I don't count that.
Nicole Kidman - There are a lot of her movies that I think I liked more than the general public seemed to ("The Others" and "Australia" come to mind), but "The Interpreter" was probably the best.
Julia Roberts - I liked a lot of her movies, but obviously "Erin Brokovich" floats to the top of the list for many reasons. Unless I want fluff. Then I have to go with "Ocean's Eleven".
Doris Day - "The Man Who Knew Too Much". Gotta love Hitchcock. And Jimmy Stewart.
Liv Tyler - The only one that's even a possibility here is "Lord of the Rings", even though I think her character was mostly useless.
Demi Moore - "A Few Good Men" was a good movie, but "G.I. Jane" made Demi my hero.
Rene Russo - "Ransom", even though I didn't like her character because she basically stood around wringing her hands and wailing the whole time and the one time she tried to be something other than the helpless female it bit her in the ass. (See: Liv Tyler above. Lather, rinse, repeat)
Michelle Rodriguez - "Avatar". Do I really need to explain this?

Ugh...

Okay, so...I'm back, obviously. And I didn't write a word of fanfiction while I was gone so I'm still trying to get back into the habit and I'll try to post a new chapter of something soon. I also need to get the trip pictures and the journal I usually accompany them with in some semblance of order. But today was a crazy ass day at work and I'm exhausted, so...

Meme time!

Comment with "ACTION!" and I will give you ten actors and ten actresses. Then post in your livejournal with your favorite films of theirs.

[livejournal.com profile] elise_509  gave me these

Actors!

1. Bill Murray - "Groundhog Day". Otherwise known as the *only* Bill Murray I have watched *and* liked.
2. Ewan McGregor - I can only pick one? I liked "Angels & Demons", but that's mostly because I loved the book and Ewan's character was totally different. "The Island" was awesome. But when it comes to fluffy romantic comedies I have to say I loved him in "Down With Love".
3. Gael Garcia Bernal - I had to look this one up on IMDb. The *only* movie I have seen from his filmography is "Babel", but I really liked that movie so I'm sure I would have picked it anyway. :)
4. Rachel Weisz - "Runaway Jury". Probably also my favorite John Cusak movie. No, wait...that would be "Identity".
5. Ethan Hawke - Can I count his guest stint on "Alias"?
6. Kevin Kline - How fitting is it that one of my options here is "Sophie's Choice"? Let's call that my favorite drama. And let's say my favorite comedy is "Pink Panther".
7. Anthony Hopkins - All of them. Well, okay, maybe not *all* of his movies are good, but he's pretty damn amazing in all the ones I've seen.
8. Chiwetel Ejiofor - Drama: "Children of Men", Fluff: "Love, Actually". Though I don't actually remember him being in either one. The ones I *do* remember him being in weren't that good though.
9. Will Ferrell - "Stranger Than Fiction" may be the only one I've seen, but I was pleasantly surprised by it so I'll go with it.
10. Campbell Scott - "Dead Again". Oh, shut up! ;P

Actresses!
1. Kate Winslet - It's a toss up between "Titanic" and "The Reader".
2. Angelina Jolie - Well, I just saw "The Changeling" yesterday, but I think I may have to go with that. Unless I want fluffy fun with eye candy and then I have to go with "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" (christ, they are both so beautiful!).
3. Vanessa Redgrave - There are a lot of her movies that I've been meaning to see but haven't yet. Seriously, it's sort of embarrassing. :( Of the ones I've seen already...I vaguely remember "The Pledge" being really good, but I might have to go with the original "Mission Impossible".
4. Penelope Cruz - "Sahara", although when I run out of space in my movie collection that will probably be one of the first movies to go. I haven't seen "Nine" yet.
5. Reese Witherspoon - "Walk the Line". How she went from that dumb blonde lawyer movie to this I'll never know.
6. Deborah Kerr - Am I supposed to come up with something *other* than "An Affair to Remember"? ;) Maybe "The King and I"...nah, "Affair".
7. Diane Keaton - Well, I like her, but I've found I don't like Woody Allen movies, so that takes a few out of the running right there. I remember "Mrs. Soffel" being good, but I don't remember anything about it other than it had Mel Gibson. So I guess it comes down to "The Godfather" or "The Other Sister" depending on what I'm in the mood for.
8. Jennifer Garner - Now I really want to say "Alias". But if I had to limit the choice to *movies*...I love her in "13 Going on 30", but I loved "Catch Me If You Can" more in general.
9. Uma Thurman - "Les Miserables". Much better than the other movie she did in '98.
10. Christine Lahti - She does movies? Well, I'll have to go with her television work anyway and say "Jack and Bobby" (damn the WB for cancelling it...hmpf).

diandrahollman: (Default)
It's been well over a month since I started posting this, hasn't it? See, this is why I can't be trusted to do daily memes. Sigh.

Days 1-8
Days 9-15
Days 16-22

Day 23 - Most annoying character -
Tom Scavo. See Day 11, re: why I'm not watching "Desperate Housewives" anymore. HORATIO CAINE!!!!!! Number one reason Miami was the first CSI I gave up watching!

Day 24 - Best quote -
As disappointed as I have been with "X-Files" in hindsight, I have cited this quote a few times: "just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you". I've also been quoting "Get Smart" a lot lately. Mostly Zigfried ("Zis is Kaos! We do not [rude noise] here!").

Day 25 - A show you plan on watching (old or new) -
I'll probaby watch that new JJ Abrams show in the fall because I'm obviously his bitch. And the new "Hawaii 5-0" because it has Alex O'Laughlin and Daniel Dae Kim and I want to see if it is possible to actually die of manpretty overload. I've also been intending to watch "Moonlighting" for a while.

Day 26 - OMG WTF? Season finale -
I'm trying to think of something other than "Lost", but all I can think of is "I...take thee, Rachel." Maybe "you've been missing for two and a half years", but..."we have to go back!" was the ultimate mindfuck. And they killed Charlie. And actually contacted the rescue boat. Yeah, "Lost" wins.

Day 27 - Best pilot episode -
I usually give new shows two episodes to grab my attention because half the time pilot episodes are pretty weak - the show doesn't really kick into gear until episode two. The two exceptions to this that spring to mind are "Alias" and "Lost", which grabbed viewers by the throat and *demanded* attention. I want to give the edge to "Lost" because those first scenes were jaw-droppingly awesome (also possibly because I didn't see the "Alias" pilot until a year later and I was probably spoiled by then). My father always refused to watch "Lost" until I gave him my season 1 DVDs and told him he had to at least watch the pilot episode. I figured if that didn't suck him in, nothing would. He's on season 2. :)

Day 28 - First t.v show obsession -
Probably "Gilligan's Island", but the first one that brought me into online fan activity was "X-Files".

Day 29 - Current t.v show obsession -
I know "Lost" is over now, but...yeah, that's still my answer. I haven't found anything to replace it.

Day 30 - Saddest character death -
Sun and Jin. I didn't cry when it happened, but I did feel nauseous and a little short of breath (apparently I have a deep seated fear of drowning). Dell's death on Private Practice was really tragic too, but - like many of the other major character deaths on television that spring to my mind - there was a significant ammount of anger and frustration obscuring the sadness so I'm not sure I would count it. Also? I seem to have a tendency to watch shows where character deaths don't necessarily mean they will never be seen again (or are even dead at all - "Alias" being the prime example).
diandrahollman: (Default)
Days 1-8
Days 9-15

Day 16 - Your guilty pleasure show -
I don't know if anything I watch anymore qualifies as a "guilty pleasure". I watched a couple non-consecutive seasons of "Dancing with the Stars" because it was the only reality competition show I could tolerate but I fast-forwarded through half of the performance episodes and didn't even bother with the results shows. And the last one I saw was the one Kristi Yamaguchi won, whenever that was, so I'm not sure I would count it.

Day 17 - Favorite mini series -
"Roots". Great acting, epic story and it has aged amazingly well. I think everyone should be required to see it in American History class, but it's too long for that to be realistic.

Day 18 - Favorite title sequence -
I usually fast-forward through these, so I'm not really sure. Though the fact that I watched the opening title sequence of "Quantum Leap" about 50+ times and never got tired of that song says something, I think. But it probably says more about the song than anything.

Day 19 - Best t.v show cast -
"Lost". JJ Abrams always seems to have good luck with casting, but he really hit the jackpot with this one. They're all amazing.

Day 20 - Favorite kiss -
The first one to leap to my mind is Vaughn and Sydney's epic first kiss in the middle of the SD-6 rubble. That whole episode was so stunningly game-changing that I spent the next week wondering if I had dreamed it.

Day 21 - Favorite ship -
I assume it doesn't have to be het. No ship has ever been as fun and rewarding for me as a fanfiction writer and reader as Jack/Sawyer.

Day 22 - Favorite series finale -
I've probably seen a lot of series finales, but I don't remember much about many of them. I guess that says something. The ones I remember clearest - mostly because many are recent - that went out on their own terms (i.e. had a *series* finale and not just a cancellation cut off) are "Gilligan's Island", "Quantum Leap", "Friends", "Everybody Hates Chris", "Alias", "Lost", "Flashforward" and "Prison Break". Of those...probably either "Friends" or "Lost" but they're so different that they're impossible to compare to each other.
diandrahollman: (books)

So...everyone's been doing this "I Write Like" meme. And I thought 'why be satisfied with the first answer I get? So I plugged in the first couple paragraphs of every story I've written in the Lost fandom, plus a couple recaps and these were the answers I got:


For "Conception" and "12 Steps" ...


I write like
Dan Brown

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!





For "His Jack", the "Namaste" drabbles and Conception: Alternate" ...


I write like
Mark Twain

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!




For "Blood and Sacrifice" and, oddly, my recap of "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End"...


I write like
James Joyce

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!





For "Quantum Leap: the Lost Episode", "Tiresias" and, interestingly, my recap of "Speed Racer"...


I write like
Stephen King

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!





And finally, for "Another Life"...


I write like
Douglas Adams

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!



I'm not sure what that all means, but I'll take it as a compliment. :D
diandrahollman: (Default)
Days 1-8 here

Day 09 - Best scene ever -
I have absolutely no idea how to answer this because it's *such* a broad question. Best action scene? Best dramatic scene? I want to say the opening scene of "Lost" with everyone stumbling around the smoking wreckage and getting sucked into still-running propellers and whatnot because that was pretty epic and totally sold the show.

Day 10 - A show you thought you wouldn’t like but ended up loving -
"Fringe". Actually, I thought I would love it, didn't like it much after the first couple episodes and then grew to really enjoy it. "Alias" too, come to think of it but that pilot episode was much stronger so I was sold on it faster.

Day 11 - A show that disappointed you -
Probably a tie between "Desperate Housewives" and "24" for much the same reasons. They started getting repetative and boring and some of the characters - certainly on Housewives - were reaching Horatio Caine levels of annoying.

Day 12 - An episode you’ve watched more than 5 times -
I know I've watched many episodes of "Alias" and "Lost" two or three times, but I don't think I've ever watched *one* particular episode of anything that many times! Though there may have been an episode of "Diagnosis Murder" when I was in junior high because I was in love with Charlie Schlatter, but I don't remember much about it anymore.

Day 13 - Favorite childhood show -
"Gilligan's Island". Don't laugh. I was in love with the professor. Though now I think I've grown to love "Quantum Leap" more.

Day 14 - Favorite male character -
This is more difficult to come up with than a favorite female character because there's *more* of them that stand out. Seriously. Television is very male dominated. I love Chi McBride's characters on "Pushing Daisies" and "Human Target". I also love House and Patrick Jane but none of those characters are the sort of people you'd want to spend a lot of time with unless you hate your life. Walter Bishop and Tony Dinozzo would drive you batshit insane. I always adored Melinda's husband on "Ghost Whisperer", but I stopped watching the show after two seasons and I understand he changed drastically after that. Maybe Scotty on "Brothers and Sisters". Or Peter Bishop possibly.

Day 15 - Favorite female character -
Olivia Dunham is pretty much the only strong female character who hasn't disappointed me yet. Well, Elizabeth Mitchell's characters haven't either, I guess. Nora Walker would be pretty high on the list but that's probably less to do with the awesomeness of the *character* than the awesomeness that is Sally Field.

diandrahollman: (Default)

I really wanted to do the "Lost" meme that was going around in the weeks leading up to the finale, but I didn't think I could even answer half the questions on it (what's a tumblr?). Also, several of them would have been duplicated with answers in the television meme, so...

Taken from [livejournal.com profile] danadoggett . I'm obviously bad about post-a-day memes, so I'll probably post this in batches. Here's the first eight days worth:

Day 01- A show that should have never been canceled -
I was always bitter about the 2002-03 television season because my three favorite shows were all cancelled with only one even making it to season end...and ending on a cliffhanger. But..."Pushing Daisies" and "Moonlight" (seriously, what were they thinking with "Moonlight"?!)

Day 02 - A show that you wish more people were watching -
Not sure I would actually wish for that - other than in hindsight when the show is cancelled because not *enough* people were watching. I think there's a point when the audience is *too* broad and the show becomes watered down because TPTB is trying to appeal to *everyone* including casual "viewers" who just have the television on in the background and don't even care what's on. Though I do wish more people I knew in my real life had watched "Lost" because I feel like the only people I could really talk to and trade theories with were on LJ.

Day 03 - Your favorite new show (aired this t.v season) -
"Human Target". Chi McBride is awesomesauce.

Day 04 - Your favorite show ever -
"Lost". No contest.

Day 05 - A show you hate -
I want to say "Survivor" and all the other "reality" show crap that has been filling space on the television schedule, but...I don't watch them. Other than that one partial episode of "Survivor" that I had to watch in television studies class that made me want to gouge my eyes out. But I should probably focus on shows I watched more than fifteen minutes of, so...I have to go with "24". I used to like it, but it became so repeatative and stupid that I grew to hate it. It eventually got to the point where the sound of that tick-thump tick-thump made my teeth clench.

Day 06 - Favorite episode of your favorite t.v show -
An episode is just an arbitrary division of time in the epic mythology that was "Lost". They often blended one right into the other in my mind (except for "Across the Sea", which stood out in a *bad* way).

Day 07 - Least favorite episode of your favorite t.v show -
Well, that Bai Ling episode was pretty useless. I think "Across the Sea" may have trumped it though.

Day 08 - A show everyone should watch -

Hint: I am apparently a slasher by nature. :) And the answer for Twilight depends on whether we're talking the books or the movies. One answer is het, the other slash.

On the one hand, I'm excited to see "Lost" tonight...on the other hand, this is the last season and I don't want it to be over. WAH!!!!

Maybe this will cheer me up...

When you see this, quote LOST in your journal



 

Personal favorites, separated by character ) 



I'm sure I'll think of more later. Obviously some characters are more quotable than others regardless of what I think of them...

Not sure I'm doing this right, but I've been seeing it everywhere...

Genderswap - And right off the bat we have a trope I am currently writing. I guess a lot of people are squicked out at the idea of turning their favorite guy into a woman, and I guess I can see why. It feels weird and wrong at times to have Sawyer hitting on a female Jack. But Jack's initial reactions were so fun it made the whole thing totally worth it. I love the idea of altering events and interactions simply by changing the gender of the character involved.

Rest of tropes under the cut )

Aside from the Obi Wan/Han Solo thing, this is...actually pretty true. Huh.


Your result for The Fan Fiction Personality Test...

The Shipper

Slash, pairings and Playboy plot bunnies.

You are very likely female, and you very likely examine characters for their "slashability". Though you insist that your stories don't circle around love and sex between attractive characters, they do.

It is also likely familiar to you that at a certain point in your story, a character (or more) discovers that he (and rarely even she) is gay, and starts a relationship with another character.

Your fanfiction meets the taste of many, especially if your pairing happens to be between two attractive males that are straight in canon.

You probably wrote something about Harry Potter falling in love with Draco Malfoy, Legolas starting a secret romance with Aragorn or Obi Wan being a sex sklave of Han Solo. If not, you probably still consider to do it.
