I got to talking with [livejournal.com profile] nicci_mac about Trek fic the other night. She was mildly horrified when I told her that there's a huge trope/cliché in (specifically, but not limited to) Reboot based fic. And it of course made me realize that I had the same damned rant that I had when I joined Torchwood, when I used to be in SG1 and quite frankly, I should stop being surprised, shouldn't I?

Yes, again XD

I should have other things to do, but having done my duty and posted prompts/pairings/fandoms for the Porn Battle VII I think I'm allowed.

I came across a few references to there being wank in the Merlin fandom... eh... either I've been completely avoiding anywhere it goes on, or people don't know what real wank is. I mean, after Smallville, SG1 and Torchwood, wank has to be really WANKY for me to count it as such.

And it made me think, I know, I'll try not to hurt myself *g*

What's the nicest fandom you've ever been in and why?
And because it's only fair, what's the worst fandom you've ever been in and why?

My best? Firefly I think. I mean, fandomwise. Everyone I ran into was nice and it seemed the majority could handle about any pairing people could come up with. Of course it might've changed since then. It's been a while.

Worst? Somewhere between SG1 and Smallville. Seriously, people take themselves far too seriously. Oh, and Torchwood? I can't really take anyone seriously in that fandom XD Bunch of wankers, the lot of them.

Hmmmm, actually, the only thing that ever bugs me about the Merlin fandom, and actually, the TW one as well, is when I read fanfic and eventually wonder: "Are we even watching the same show?" But actual wank? Maybe someone opposes the Arthur marries Gwen thing. I think it makes as much sense getting worked up over that as it does to get annoyed that the show doesn't follow the better known versions of the Arthurian legends. The show's more or less an AU of the stories, even though those were re-written over the years, so who's to say what's fannon and cannon? It was prettied up for a more romantic period, adding Lancelot to the mix. So, tell me, does that make the occasional tweak of the legends 'fanfic'?

*ponders with a laugh*

Please, don't ever become a place of sanity.

Gee, it's a good thing it's the weekend and once my obligations for the day are over (kiddie b-day party), I've got a wine and skype date with Nicci tonight *g*

Which I need like, whoa!

Heh, but apart from that, work's been busy, I've been busy and that's just, you know, real life.

Which sometimes gets in the way of fandomlife, which is infinitely more fun.

So, I'd like to thank, a little belatedly, those of you filling out the poll last weekend. It was fun *g* seeing what fandoms you guys connected me with and last but not least, to see which fandoms we share today.

Anyone miss the post or want to see the poll results?

Much to my raised eyebrow but really, not that much of a surprise as I mostly got into LJ around that time, I was put in connection with SG-1 the most. And it was a good time back then -- I occasionally miss the madness. But only a little and only occasionally XD

I was more surprised to see that 2nd place is held by Torchwood.

Then again, looking at the second question, I can see I share TW with more than any other fandom, so I guess that's the connection *g*

Also... *gets sidetracked* Hmmmmm, the guy across the street is vacuuming, wearing nothing but a tight t-shirt and a pair of very tight undies. *shakes head* Sorry. He's not too shabby looking either XD

I also seem to share the Merlin fandom with a lot of you. I love this fandom. I haven't made all that many new friends, save a few. And it doesn't bother me all that much -- it's my 'I'm so relaxing here' fandom *g* -- The fun part is going over people's LJs and going 'Oh, you too,' and it's more often than not, people I've had on my LJ since before the dawn of time XD

Aw bugger, he's dressed *pouts*

So, since I'm online with the combo of Nicci, wine and skype tonight, you may expect drunken posting of a very lewd kind. Isn't it always?

Happy weekend, peeps!

PS. for the fun of it, have a Bradley picture

On second thought, make that two

No, the arse tag doesn't come into play until later tonight.

Not a new one, mind you, because it seems horribly familiar.

What's the weirdest/oddest/most disgusting/mindbending/WRONG pairing you've ever come across or can think of?

Weirdest ever? Tazmanian Devil/Bugs Bunny or possibly Winnie the Pooh/Piglet - can't quite decide

Oh, and icons to support the reply are MORE than welcome -- I'm slightly drunk, so I can handle it.

Nicci and I are talking about betas, how frustrated the SG fandom used to make me. I got into fanfic writing a few years before I got into SG and I was used to having a beta who would pick anything apart and bloody well make me write it better XD

What's your favorite beta moment/memory? How do you prefer to have your stuff beta'ed? I for one enjoy having it taken apart and handed back like a chinese puzzle with the note of -- it's a good idea, just needs work...

Hello all,

[livejournal.com profile] nicci_mac needed a little pick-me-up -- which ended up with me writing her TW porn... Yeah, I'm that kind of friend XD

So, I sort of need a beta reader. No hurry, I'm going to give it an edit in the morning, possibly, and then send it off to whomever volunteers *g* -- it's a follow up to 'Meat' -- but mostly it's just smut -- a bit of tie-me-up but not to worry, there's nothing non-con about it.

Speaking of non-con, I read a TW fic the other night that just left me cold, or rather, made me want to throw up. It was set after Cyberwoman and I don't care what the author called it, because it was nothing short of non-con and there was nothing hot about it. I know Jack's not a saint, but that? No. I don't care how you reason, which I'd like to point out, there was very little reasoning in the story. But if Jack were to take Ianto to bed after that, would he really go through with full blown penetration if Ianto was clearly not in his right mind, barely aware of what was going on and obviously had never been with a man?

I might not go for all the sugary sweet fic in the TW fandom, but I'd really rather have that than non-con. I can't find the story again - I've never shut a browser window down that fast before.

I 've been surfing a lot of anime fanfic lately, mostly Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle related and it got me to thinking about fanfic in general. A lot of those writers are on fanfiction.net or they've been there. How can I tell?

It's kinda fun when someone recs an old story of yours and it drags all the thoughts from back then into the light.

[livejournal.com profile] winkyb recced 'Protected' on [livejournal.com profile] stargateficrec and it's oddly enough one of my own favorites if I have to choose. I'm not saying I wouldn't do it differently if I were to write it today, I would, no doubt about it, but still...

To those of you who read X-men or have read in the past. I was doing the corrections I got from my lovely beta [livejournal.com profile] ailaois and although she doesn't know the fandom or the characters of the comic books, she agreed to go through it with a fine-toothed comb. Which she did *g* -- and I'd never have gotten the French parts correct without her either *g*

One thing she mentioned was Remy's way of speaking. You all know, the becomes 'de' etc. At least I seem to recall from the comics. Help me out here, please. Just let me know your preference. I can't promise I'll follow it, but I'll take it into account *g*

How mangled is Remy's language?

the = de
this = dis
that = dat

or should I go with

the = t'e
this = t'is
that = t'at

Come on, speak up. What's your preferences? How do you like everyone's favorite Cajun?

Real life:
Yup, not much time before we get started on this year's gospel festival here in Odense. I'm looking forward to the madness *g*. We start on Friday evening, rehearsals go on until 10PM I think, then Saturday we start fairly early, go on through the day until pretty late in the evening. Then there's a cafë at the place and we hang out and have fun. Sunday is the final rehearsal and then the concert starts around 4PM (last year it ended around 6PM... phew!)

Am I hyped? Yeahsureyabetcha!

I know it's annoying with spam, but really, when I try to answer feedback and get a block message back from EarthLink Spamblocker, that my email will not be delivered unless I ask to be added to the recipients 'safe' list. Really, I do answer feedback but this kinda makes me feel like I have to jump through hoops to do so... ::sighs::

On another note, the Firefly Valentine's fic is done, I just need to type in some edits. Anyone want to offer a read-through? I should be done with the edits in a few hours at the most (no, I don't have THAT many edits, but there's other stuff to do too LOL)

And Valentine's Day cards. I've got two planned, just finished one tonight, so I think I can gte the other one done tomorrow *g*

What's it say about me that I have conversations with my Jayne muse about doing a Valentine's Day fic? I can just see the entire thing getting completely out of hand...

Why oh why do I ever make the mistake... I'm sure there's a few good stories in the my mongoose e-zines, but I keep hitting the wrong ones.

Mine eyes, mine eyes. I need some good solid smutty Firefly fic to forget what I just read. It wasn't BAD fic as such. Apart from there not being much of a plot, the writing was... chliched... and not in the good way. Hey, I love a good cliche, but this was... painful reading. I need some Mal/Jayne smut to wash that out, I think -_-

Okay, I just need some Mal/Jayne smut, period ::smirks::
