This icon is my "omg, can't sleep!" icon

Gah, I can't sleep. I'm utterly exhausted but I'm too busy to sleep. I'm doing massive cleaning of my room and fretting about what to pack for New York.

I have so much to do later. I need to drive to Pasadena to drop off the rats to be taken care of, that's about 2 1\2 hours gone. I need to go to BestBuy to get another battery for my new camera and maybe another memory card. I should probably also get another card for my camcorder, hooray for $70 off coupons!
I also have to go to the bank to deposit a check and take $$$ out. Oh, and I need to pack and print things.
Why have I left this at the last minute? Oh yea, I like to stress myself out.

Right now I'm cleaning my room like mad and taking surveys to de-frazzle myself.

Got a couple of questions for you who are involved in a fandom! This is just curiosity, I'll answer them myself :)


1. You're taking this questionnaire because you are involved in a fandom. What fandoms are you involved in?
Me: The ones I'm most involved in are Harry Potter, South Park, House MD, Futurama, Star Wars, and X-Files.

2. Do you read fanfic? If you only read fanfic for certain fandoms, mention those fandoms here.
Me: I read fanfic for Potter, South Park, and House most often. I'll read fanfic for the others once in awhile.

3. What are your ships for your major fanfic fandoms? Het or slash :)
Me: Potter: H\D and H\Hr are my two OTPs. I'll read nearly any pairing with few exceptions if the plot seems good.
South Park: Stan\Kyle it my OTP. I read friendship fics if the stories take place during the show (they're 9) but I delve into slash when they reach highschool or older.
House: House\Wilson <3

4. Is there a ship that you used to like\love that you don't read anymore? Why?
Potter: Harry\Ginny and Harry\Snape. I was never fond of H\G but would read a story if it looked really good. Now, I can't stomach reading new H\G. I'll still read those old ones I really enjoy but that's it, I just really really dislike that pairing. As for H\SS, that pairing juts grosses me out now. Again, I'll read old stories I highly enjoy but I won't read anything new.

5. Is there a ship you have never touched and probably never will?
Potter: Hermione\Draco and Hermione\Snape, that just weirds me out.
South Park: Kyle\Eric. That's just so many kinds of wrong D:
House: House\Cameron

6. What's a fandom cliche you can't stand?
Potter: Draco being this beautiful sparkly guy. He's pale and pointy, I always kinda imagine him being average looking or, if I'm reading a bad!Draco story, looking like a white shrew.
South Park: Kyle being portrayed as a pansy. Sorry, but Kyle is one of the most badass characters in that show. He stands up for himself against Cartman and will kick Cartman's ass if need be. He's a caring and intelligent character but he's by no means a wimp! *huff*

7. Do you have a favorite character from the fandom? I understand it can be hard to choose so you can use a favorite character you have at the moment if needed.
Potter: Harry! :P
House: Heh, House
South Park: Kyle ^.^

8. Why are they your favorites?
Harry: I absolutely loved him in the earlier books. He had such a smartass sense of humor and he was pretty bright. I wasn't that fond of how JK portrayed him in HBP & DH but he was alright.
House: He's such a complex and amazing character.
Kyle: He's my little Jewboy! I identify with him. I was mature and intelligent in elementary school and only had a few real friends while the others looked down on me for being smart. I also had my own bully who, yes, picked on me for being Jewish. I wasn't nearly as badass as Kyle about it though, I tried to avoid the person.

9.Almost done! What is your favorite book\movie\episode of your major fandoms?
Potter: GoF or OotP I think
House: I really enjoyed "Birthmarks", the one where House and Wilson finally repair their friendship.
South Park: Oh geeze...I'll give my Top 5....Cherokee Hair Tampons, Guitar Queer-O, Smug Alert, Elementary School Musical, & Mr. Hankey The Christmas Poo

I probably won't see your answers until I get back.

I hope you have an awesome time in NY! Stalk Dan extra for me, since I am clearly failing with the stalking British celebrities in their natural habitat.

1. You're taking this questionnaire because you are involved in a fandom. What fandoms are you involved in?
I'll go with the biggies: Hey Arnold, Merlin, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Harry Potter. Also mildly involved in The Office, House, Heroes, Pushing Daisies, and so on and so forth.

2. Do you read fanfic? If you only read fanfic for certain fandoms, mention those fandoms here.
I read anything Hey Arnold; it's my first fandom! And since it's so small, everyone knows and supports one another. I dabble in reading the others, but I usually write more than I read, to be a complete elitist bitch.

3. What are your ships for your major fanfic fandoms? Het or slash :)
HA! -- Arnold/Helga, Gerald/Helga, Helga/Rhonda
Merlin -- Merlin/Arthur, Lancelot/Gwen
BtVS -- Spike/Buffy, Oz/Willow
HP -- Ron/Hermione, Harry/Luna, Tom/Minerva

4. Is there a ship that you used to like\love that you don't read anymore? Why?
HA! -- Not really.
Merlin -- Merlin/Gwen had its merits, but it's Merlin/Arthur all the way. Even the dragon ships them!
BtVS -- Angel/Buffy was okay in the first couple seasons, but I lost interest after she killed him.
HP -- Nope.

5. Is there a ship you have never touched and probably never will?
HA! -- Arnold/Phoebe. NO.
Merlin -- I'm way behind on episodes, but I can't imagine being interested in Morgana at all. Then again, I haven't seen the Morgana-heavy episodes yet, so for now it's just a general boredom with the character and her getting in the way of my M/A OTP.
BtVS -- Eww, Willow/Kennedy. HATED it.
HP -- Harry/Hermione. Sorry :-/

6. What's a fandom cliche you can't stand?
I'm not hugely into all the PWP out there. I like a good sex scene as much as the next person, but a lot of the time it is just pornpornporn all the time. I write it sometimes too, but I like a good plot once in a while. And I like some things left to the imagination every once in a while. Which is why I try to avoid a lot of the Merlin/Arthur fic, even though it pains me to do so. Sometimes I really miss gen too D:

7. Do you have a favorite character from the fandom? I understand it can be hard to choose so you can use a favorite character you have at the moment if needed.
HA! -- Helga!
Merlin -- Arthur!
BtVS -- Spike!
HP -- Ron!

8. Why are they your favorites?
HA! -- Helga is quite possibly the best animated character of all time. She's so complex and I absolutely adore her.
Merlin -- Honestly, part of my love for Arthur is because Bradley James is adorable and I basically love him since Expo. And the character is such a loveable prat, with a soft spot for his, erm, manservant.
BtVS -- See Helga; Spike is so complex and always suprising. He is badass and sensitive at the same time and is just so interesting.
HP -- I've loved Ron since the first book. He's the bumbling sidekick, which I tend to identify with a lot. And it doesn't hurt that I happen to adore redheads.

9.Almost done! What is your favorite book\movie\episode of your major fandoms?
HA! -- What's Opera Arnold?
Merlin -- The Poisoned Chalise
BtVS -- Once More With Feeling
HP -- Prisoner of Azkaban

Haha, I thought you meant Merlin as in just the legend. I didn't realize there was a show :)

I used to love Hey Arnold! Helga was my favorite too :)

Haha, I don't care if people don't sail the same ship (H\Hr for example). I just can't stand it when people bash my ship of choice (you didn't).
I agree on the PWP. I love it but I'll go out of my way for one. When I start a story I want some meat to that story, just not condiments. There's a H\D author I really don't like because she has many 10% plot to 90% pron.

Merlin is a new show on the BBC this year and is SPECTACULAR. I've never been a huge slasher until I watched this one, particularly because Merlin/Arthur isn't all pr0n (despite 90% of the fanfic writers in the fandom). I whole-heartedly recommend it! I also have seen the two actors up close at London Expo a few weeks ago, so obviously I can vouch that they are adorable. ::uses pouty Arthur icon because he's gorgeous::

I don't like ship bashers either. I like to calmly and rationally discuss why I like what I like and why I don't like what I, well, don't. Much more civilized.

Did you squee when that scene came up in the trailer?


Because I totally didn't.

Hehe.

I did! I wonder how I'll react when I see the scene, that's one of the only times that I wanted to reach in and throttle Harry. Dumb boy, trying an unknown spell on somebody!
I also squeed when Harry yelled "Come back and fight you coward!"
*swoon*

I know! He scarred Draco for life (according to fanfiction, at least...). I'm kind of hoping the directors will change the 7th ending and have them all be BFFS.


They've done worse, haha!

I should be packing but I'm replying to comments :x

Am I a terrible Potterphile for hoping that the epilogue gets cut out of the movie? Or, if they have to have it, have the current actors play their older selves? I don't want to see some shmuck playing an older and sexier Harry, Danrad can get a bit of makeup put on and he'll look hawt...like his daddy! His daddy is fine :)

Ahh yes, packing! I can't wait until you get back to tell us about it.

And, omg...I didn't even think of that! Tom can easily do a receding hair line, and Harry and Ron...wow!
