From [personal profile] lynnoconnacht:
I know very little about some of the people on my friends list. Some people I know relatively well. But here’s a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself. Any old thing at all. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: “Ah, there’s Parker… she likes money and cereal.” I’d love it if everyone who’s friended me did this. (Yes, even you people who I know really well.) Then post this in your own journal. In return, ask me anything you’d like to know about me and I’ll give you an answer.

Music meme

Stolen from [personal profile] analect. Very silly. Because I like silly things.

Here's how it works (text straight from [personal profile] analect's post because I am lazy): To play, first open your music library (iTunes, Media Monkey, iPod, Winamp, or whatever else you use. If you don’t use a music library... well, dang. This probably won’t work so well with Spotify, last.fm, etc., but you could try it). This is your entire, unfiltered library - no special selections, no playlists. Everything.

Make sure your library is on shuffle. Press play and, for each of the numbered plot points on the list that follows, fill in the song that’s playing. Press ‘next’ for each new plot point, but no skipping, and no cheating!

Are you brave enough to expose your guilty musical pleasures to the world... or try to make sense of the soundtrack that emerges?

The soundtrack of my life? )

Stolen from [personal profile] aldersprig and [personal profile] inventrix. Except I didn't really steal it, the meme made me repost! Peer pressure!

I'm running a test to see who's reading my posts. (Actually I'm running a test to see who feels like coming up with a word.) So, if you read this, leave me a one-word comment about your day that starts with the last letter of your LJ DREAMWIDTH USERNAME. Only one word please. Then repost so I can leave a word for you. Don't just post a word and not copy - that's not as much fun!

I'm feeling too nauseated to work on fiction right now (I've got one of those sinus headaches that thinks it's a migraine), so have a meme instead.

Give me a pairing and I will tell you:

who is the big spoon/little spoon
what is their favorite non-sexual activity
who uses all the hot water in the morning
what they order from take out
what is the most trivial thing they fight over
who does most of the cleaning
what has a season pass in their DVR
who controls the netflix queue
who calls up the super/landlord when the heat’s not working
who steals the blankets
who leaves their stuff around
who remembers to buy the milk
who remembers anniversaries

Feel free to mention any pairing from a fandom you know I like, or any of my original characters. I'll try to come up with technology equivalents for non-modern day settings.

I stole this meme from [personal profile] d_generate_girl. Some of these will be extremely obscure. (Yes, Lynnie, some of them are yours.)

1. Think of up to 20 ships you support.
2. List them using descriptions of the characters involved rather than their names.
3. Have your f-list guess as many of the ships as they can.
4. Fandom hints will be given if asked in the comments.


1. The definitely-not-mad genius and the former spy.
2. The brilliant mermaid and the demon. Kailani/Rozen (Addergoole), guessed by [identity profile] rix-scaedu.livejournal.com
3. The scientist and the woman who leaps in front of bullets. Abby/Kate (NCIS), guessed by [personal profile] tephra
4. The ice queen and the fire prince. Shahin/Emrys (Addergoole), guessed by [personal profile] moonwolf
5. The extremely sensitive girl and the extremely rigid boy.
6. The British inventor and the American bookworm. HG/Myka (Warehouse 13), guessed by [personal profile] smeddley
7. The herbologist and the cryptozoologist. Neville/Luna (Harry Potter), guessed by [personal profile] tephra
8. The silent priestess and the fairy queen.
9. The woman in the coffin and the man who always keeps her safe. Abby/Gibbs (NCIS), guessed by [personal profile] d_generate_girl
10. The shy girl and the (mostly-)reformed rake.
11. The elder sister and the bookish officer.
12. The man in the wrong world and the woman who is completely badass. Peter/Olivia (Fringe), guessed by [personal profile] kay_brooke
13. The girl who was on fire and the boy who baked her bread. Katniss/Peeta (The Hunger Games), guessed by [personal profile] kayim
14. The skeleton and the rag doll. Jack/Sally (The Nightmare Before Christmas), guessed by [identity profile] rix-scaedu.livejournal.com
15. The permanent replacement and the temporary replacement.
16. The bright geek and the reluctant hero.
17. The assassin and the action figure.
18. The artist and the king of the lab. Angela/Hodgins (Bones), guessed by [personal profile] kay_brooke and [personal profile] d_generate_girl
19. The healer princess and the prince in disguise. Rin/Girey ([personal profile] aldersprig's work), guessed by [identity profile] rix-scaedu.livejournal.com
20. The woman in one world and the woman in the other world.

ETA: A few of these might be more my interpretation than anything that's necessarily there in the canon... And, if anyone is still guessing, it might be a helpful hint to tell you that none of these are slash--there is some het and some femslash.

Icon meme

Aug. 31st, 2011 09:55 pm
clare_dragonfly: Reid standing with his hands together, text: the profile suggests that the UNSUB is an itsy bitsy spider. (CM: Reid: itsy bitsy spider)
1. Reply to this post with "UNICORNS", and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about 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.


[personal profile] d_generate_girl gave me these:Read more... )

A meme stolen from [personal profile] aldersprig:

If I made Cinderella, the audience would immediately be looking for a body in the coach. -- Alfred Hitchcock, 1899 - 1980

If I wrote fic/drew art/vidded/folded origami/etc today, the readers/viewers would immediately be looking for... what?


Don't worry if you haven't read much of my work; I'm really interested in any themes people might have noticed at all!
clare_dragonfly: woman with green feathery wings, text: stories last longer: but only by becoming only stories (Writing: plot bunnies)
Stolen from [personal profile] aldersprig like everything else, mostly because I wanted to make a request of her ;)

The first five people to comment in this post get to request that I write a drabble/ficlet of any pairing/character of their choosing. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level.

Feel free to request either original fic or fanfic--any fandom in my interests is fine!

ETA: All full! Yay!

Comment on this post saying you want to play, and I'll give you five things I associate with you/want to know more about you. Then you post them in your journal and elaborate.

My dear friend [livejournal.com profile] losile gave me these questions.

Getting to like you, getting to hope you like me )

Inspired by [personal profile] tephra, I decided to redo this knitting survey, since it's been a while and I know my knitting preferences have changed.
