5 Subjects Meme

Comment to this post and I will give you 5 subjects/things I associate you with. Then post this in your LJ and elaborate on the subjects given.

irrel gave me these subjects (which are really different from the usual ones I get, so I'm playing again!):

1. Sheldon/Penny
Just a few months ago, no one would have associated me with this pairing. I was firmly a Clois (Clark/Lois) and Peter/MJ shipper, who loved my TV fandoms just a little less than my beloved superheroes. But then I started to watch Big Bang Theory in its second season (after only catching a few 1st season eps) and really laughed a lot. Yuletide 2008 is what did me in, finally. Most of the fic was Sheldon/Penny... something I'd never considered. But as soon as I did, I was HOOKED with a capslock sort of love.

From then to now, I've written one porn battle entry, read and recced a ton of fic, and started making icons. I haven't been this fannish about anything since Superman Returns first came out. And it's SO strange that it's not coming out as fanfic (since I primarily consider myself a writer). But hey! I'm finding a little niche. ♥

2. Comic Con
I've never been, and I've always wanted to go! This year, I get to go for the first time - but only on Friday (can't afford more). I hope that the BBT panel, and maybe some comics panels, will happen that day. chickadilly will be going with me (as long as the toe of DOOM is well). I hope to meet up with damalur and irrel, too!

3. Dr. Horrible
I was already a huge Neil Patrick Harris fangirl because of HIMYM, and I'd been a casual fan of Whedon's work as well. So when I heard they were doing a MUSICAL(!) I pimped it all over my LJ. I even ended up being very antisocial during a college friends' reunion in Colorado because it premiered online that week. :D! I never got fannish about it on LJ... however, my 6-year old and I have every song memorized. ♥

4. BrOTP
This is another pairing that I started to ship seriously after Yuletide. I had always shipped Barney and Robin from season 1, but not very seriously. When cadetdru wrote me a BroTP fic in 2007, I discovered that there were other shippers out there! The barneyrobin comm on LJ started soon after, and I was one of the people who gasped in joy and awe when they finally hooked up for the first time. I'm loving what the writers are doing with that storyline this year, too. :)

5. Chuck
Another show I fell in love with by its second season. I missed the first season, and caught up with it during the writers' strike last year. This year it became a must-see, after the BBT/HIMYM block, I watch it on my DVR, only an hour later. When BBT/HIMYM are reruns, I watch live! I REALLY HOPE IT GETS ANOTHER SEASON. I definitely plan to buy a footlong from Subway for the finale! My other Chuck-watchers should do the same!

Who's going to play this round?

comic con, eh? I have lots of stories from cons -- way back when fanfic was copied and sold under the tables (even saw some of the original K/S - the first slash)

The last (and only con I went to -- well, it was a set of cons) was pre-fanfic explosion on the 'net. I unfortunately never saw any! :(

Wow, you were one of the original BrOTP shippers? Awesome! I got late to the show (before season 3 aired) but I wasn't spoiled for anything when I watched S1&2; I was really surprised at the B/R hook up! It must have been great to see that live :D
htbthomas
Apr. 16th, 2009 10:15 am (UTC)
Amazingly enough! My icon above I've had since I first started LJ, and I was watching the show before I came here. It's because of the BrOTP that I have hope for S/P!

You were on the front wave of BrOTP awesome! I did not know that, but for some reason it makes me smile. :)

I suppose, if you're going to twist my arm, I'll play along... *g*

I was -- just not fannish until the end of 2007. :) I was saying to irrel that I've had my "Awesome" icon since I started here at LJ in 2006, too. It's because of the BrOTP that I have hope for S/P!

SCC is all but cancelled, Pushing Daisies has been cancelled, Castle is on the bubble. They can't cancel Chuck too. What else is left.

I'll play!
htbthomas
Apr. 16th, 2009 11:45 am (UTC)
There's Big Bang Theory and Smallville... not that that will help you... There haven't really been cancellation rumors as far as I can tell, just a lack of renewal. Hopefully at the upfronts they'll give it another season!

For you (though I bet it's similar stuff I've picked before):

Chuck
Ex Machina (hee, icon is good for ideas)
Canada

You're going to the SD con?

I may be there myself this year.

Just a word of warning... bring in some lysol because that place stinks so bad sometimes. Like a bag of farts.... no joke!

I went my first time back in 01 and it was a horrific experience. stunk so bad and my co-worker told me it's because the guys that attend there are on a diet of coca-cola, cheetohs, doritos and velveeta cheese.

I am going to SD. Funny, I've never heard the smell complaint from anyone before! I'll definitely bring Lysol along. But maybe since '01 they've improved the air circulation? And there are definitely WAY more girls in fandom now than then...

Are you going the whole 4 days or just one?

Did you want to play?

Oh, I love this meme! :D

I've done it once before, but I'd love to do it again! ;)

2-Yay! Comic Con!

Sounds like you'll have a blast! ♥

I'd love to be able to go one day. It's like a mecca for all of the things I love at CC! Probably 80% of my favorite fandoms are represented there in some fashion.

3-I really need to watch Dr. Horrible soon! I think I'm one of only maybe 5 Whedon fans in the world who haven't seen it yet.

4-I didn't know you shipped Barney/Robin?! :D

They're my newest OTP! ♥ I just got into HIMYM this year, and I'm completely in love with them. They've actually managed to steal my attention away from Clois for a bit which is hard to do.

My mum gave me the first two seasons on DVD for Easter, and I've had a blast catching up! :)

TPTB had better put them together by the end of the series.

2 - I'm so excited about it! I really have been looking forward to it for over a year now. :)

3 - Yes! See it! Did you know it is still available on hulu.com?

4 - All hail the BroTP! They are so awesome together, seriously. It's really cool to see what everyone thought was a non-canon pairing turn canon. :) You probably didn't know I was into it because I haven't done anything fannish for them in the last few months. I mostly squee on Twitter and read fic. :)

Oops! Your 5 things (hopefully there isn't a ton of overlap from the last time you did things!):

Clois
Smallville
House

Spider-Man
