...AND ANY OTHER FANDOM FRIENDS.

Sat, April 24th, the NYC Star Trek Meet Up group is throwing AN INSANELY BELATED BUT STILL GONNA BE AWESOME BDAY PARTY FOR ME. I don't know the details cause those are a surprise for me, BUT YOU SHOULD COME!

THE POST ABOUT IT IS HERE.

LEAVE A COMMENT THERE IF YOU WANT TO COME.

I BETTER SEE ALL YA'LL THERE. JUST. SAYING.
So I tweeted about my lotto/Dr. Who/Dumbledore dream, and someone who follows me (whom I certainly don't know IRL and who I thinks follows me because of me being the sidekick of the Nostalgia Chick), posted THIS in response.

OMG. I CAN'T EVEN. I JUST GOT PHOTOSHOPPED YOU GUYS. AS DOCTOR WHO!NELLA.

WORDS. THEY FAIL ME.

I'M GOING TO BE FEELING WAAAAAAAAAAAY TOO GEEKILY COOL FOR THE REST OF THE DAY. THERE WILL BE NO LIVING WITH ME.

NOW WHERE'S MY SONIC SCREWDRIVER?
I finally cave for the twitter craze...to make a fandom puppet with a friend.

In the fine tradition of FMLMccoy [livejournal.com profile] ncc_gqmf and I have started FML accounts for District 9 characters.

fookmylife - Wikus Van Der Merwe

CJohnsonFML - Christopher Johnson (WHY YES, I AM THE BELEAGUERED ALIEN. IT'S WHAT I DO, PLAY BELEAGUERED SORTS.)


God, I've got D-9 on the BRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIN....
Ladies and Gentlemen (…or maybe just ladies, IDK); I think the poll for deciding the Great Star Trek Re-viewing has been opened long enough. THE RESULTS, IF YOU PLEASE:

EDITED 6/1 WITH FINAL DETAILS

IF YOU HAVE JUST FOUND OUT ABOUT THIS WEE LITTLE SOIREE INTO THE FANNISH, DON'T PANIC, OF COURSE YOU CAN COME, MORE THE MERRIER, ETC ETC ETC.

BE SURE TO KEEP TABS ON THIS ENTRY, FOR LAST MINUTE UPDATES/ANNOUNCEMENTS/PLAN CHANGES.


*DRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUM ROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLL* )
Because a lot of people seemed keen when it was mentioned elsewhere, I thought I'd take a poll about who wants to meet up to see Trek again in the NYC area.

EDIT AS OF 5/27/09:THE POLL IS CLOSED, SEE POST HERE FOR DETAILS. HOWEVER, YOU SHOULD STILL FILL OUT THE POLL FOR SHITS AND GIGGLES, I PUT A LOT OF LOGIC BULLSHIT THOUGHT INTO MAKING IT. HUMOR ME.

STARFLEET NEEDS YOU!!...to fill out this poll about a NYC meetup. AND THERE'S A REWARD FOR YOUR EFFORTS AT THE END. So even if you totally can't come thanks to geography/time, you should click this anyway, cause below is me trying to be clever.  )

AND SPREAD THE WORD TO YOUR MOTHAS EQUALLY GEEKTASTIC F-LISTS, THE MORE THE MERRIER.
They just think EVERYTHING out to INSANELY logical conclusions.

Like how Sherlock Holmes MUST have been a Vulcan.

It's not crazy, it's LOGIC.

I think I love this ALMOST as much as the "Watson was a Woman" speech Rex Stout (author of the Nero Wolfe mysteries) gave at a Holmesian dinner back in the 1910s.


THANK YOU FANDOM. YOU MADE MY DAY A HAPPIER ONE.
Someone asked over at the STXI anon-meme asked for a Jeeves/Spock story (GOD, could you IMAGINE the eyebrow wars? Hell, even McCoy could jump in and try to hold his own, McCoy’s got a hellava eyebrow himself there…) but all I could imagine was Jeeves and Wooster...crewing the USS Enterprise.

CAPTAIN!BERTIE!: I say, Jeeves, is this thing on? Oh, good, right-o. Captain’s Log, star date 22…er…I say, Jeeves? How do these bally star dates work again? Well, that doesn’t make much sense, does it? I mean to say, good lord, could Starfleet have made them more confusing, what?

Oh, right, um, Space! The final whatsit. These are journeys of the Starship Enterprise--


ALL THRUSTERS GO FOR QUICKIE CROSSOVER MADNESS!!! )

....AND SO ON. AND SO ON. OH GOD IT'S WRITING ITSELF.
Point one: Today is Towel Day. Go forth, my fellow hitchhikers, and remember:

DON'T PANIC.




Point two: For those of you Discworld fans, today is the Glorious 25th of May.


Truth!
Justice!
Freedom!
Reasonably Priced Love,
and a Hard Boiled Egg!!


Excuse me. I need to go and find some lilac to wear whilst I reread Night Watch.
So, this speech is old hat for me--found it LONG ago, back in my rabid Sherlockian days. And if I ever pick up a Rex Stout "Nero Wolfe" book, this speech--given at the Baker Street Irregulars meeting in 1941--is the prime reason.

For you see, my dear f-list, Rex Stout puts before his fellow Irregulars the theory that Watson was a Woman.


*Loves her some 1940's fandom crack!*
EEE!! EEEEEEEE!! EEEEEEEEE!!!!!

Ozma/Dorothy femmeslash! I finally found Oz femmeslash!!!!!

That is a glorious thing.
I'm floored. I can't believe I missed this...trainwreck back when I was all up in the LOTR fandom. [livejournal.com profile] lunar_wolf will find this interesting as it is very much in the vein of the chronicles of Ms. Scribe regarding the Harry Potter fandom, but one that conned not only internet communities and fans, but the fucking actors from LOTR, mainly Sean Austin.

Finding this has gotten me racking my brains, thinking back to spring 2002. I was in 11th grade, and Fellowship of the Ring had just been released that December. As is my way, I was hooked, and through the brilliant ploy of my fellow school journalist [livejournal.com profile] niftykracker, we managed to con for ourselves free press passes to ICON, in order that we might actually get to meet Billy Boyd. But, drunk on fandom, I went further than that.

Through Billyboyd.net, I meet a group of fellow fans that would likewise be attending ICON, including one particular girl that for the life of me I can't remember her name (but I can swear that "Amy" rings far to close a bell in regards to my dealings with the LOTR fandom, and if Nifty will step forward and either shot this down or support it, I would be most grateful).

As is my way, I meet new folk and then I disappear from their lives never to speak to them again. But [livejournal.com profile] niftykracker kept in contact with this particular girl. This was much to the chagrin of his friends, as it came to light that the girl and another of her friends were completely off their rockers: she believed in astral projection, but on top of that, once while she was driving with Nifty she was "possessed" by Billy Boyd, who was engaged in an astral war against psychic giants. As a result, her and her friend took it upon themselves to help Billy Boyd in this epic astral battle!

Some of the parallels between what I remember of the crazy shit these two came up with, compared with what is detailed at the livejournal of [livejournal.com profile] turimel hits a little close to home, and makes one sit back and shiver a bit.

The book is called When a Fan Hits the Shit: the livejournal of the author can be found here, and the book site is here.

Creepy ass shit yo.

So, after talking with [livejournal.com profile] angeluspixy about the Phantom of the Opera Saturday morning cartoon, I was inspired to draw fanart for it, before it even exist!! I present:


Erik and Raoul Plot Against Fabrizio the Opera Fop! )
"It seems we may have a spark of hope… she's not the least bit frightened of me. In fact, I think… she seems to fancy me a bit. Or at least she's not running from the castle screaming in terror." Rayven explained as best he could.

So, never minding the fact that this is a HORRIBLE fic (point one: the Beast's name is Rayven. Rayven. WTF?!), poor old RAYVEN seems to think that it's a single step from "running from the castle screaming in terror" to "fancying". Poor old Rayven obviously doesn't read girls very well.

With the help of my enternal roommate [livejournal.com profile] singealiene I would like to present for you, the kind readers of my Livejournal, the many steps between "running from the castle screaming in terror" to "fancying":

1) Running from the castle, screaming in terror.

2)overt fear

3) Hiding under the bed

4) cautiously venturing out of the bedroom but only when in need of food

5) Slamming door in fit of teenage angst rage

6)sharp dislike

7)coldly ignoring the other's presence

8)dislike

9)mild dislike

10) Air of Discomfort when in the same room/ casual avoidance

11) Avoiding eye contact at dinner table while politely laughing

12) tolerence

13) Thinks is "okay"

14) Mild appreciation

15) nonchalant greeting

16) "Getting to know you" phase

17) Casual friendship

18) Recommending favorite books/reading poetry together

19) actaul friendship

20) Non-sexual activities, like making popcorn or a building a snowman!

21) Genuine affection

and finally....

22) Fancying.

And after this point, there's nothing but guilt and RAW RAW SEX!!!!
