Fandom Garden Party  
Certain among us have decided that the days are very languid of late, so in an effort to invigorate our local community and inspire a sense of festivity, we have decided to hold a Fandom Garden Party. Starting immediately and lasting for a week. (Well, there's no point in doing things by halves, right? *waves 1930s cigarette holder airily*) All those who consider themselves part of the fannish community are invited!



Imagine, if you will, your friends mingling in the gazebo, at the elaborate dining tent or under a shady oak tree. Cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and iced desserts will of course, be provided gratis. Those of you so inclined may partake of a leisurely game of tennis, croquet or lawn bowls, or simply stroll around the gardens. It's a good time to catch up with friends, but also to meet new ones--in that, we can be of assistance!

As we all know, introductions smooth the way for new contacts to be made and friendships to form. Therefore we invite you to let your fellow revellers know a little more about yourself. Simply cut and paste


Further events on the Garden Party agenda will be posted daily at this journal. There is no pressure to attend or participate (enforced garden parties are dreadful affairs!), but I hope to see many of you and your friends there: the more the merrier! Pass the word! *pours champagne in preparation*
 
 
Current Location: by the hors d'oeuvres table
Current Mood: mischievousmischievous
Current Music: Hong Kong Garden by Siouxsie & The Banshees

Lovely to see you here! :D

Chlois!
You better have typed that wrong. *frowns at you* :p (You know that in SV fandom 'Chlois' means 'Chloe is the real Lois', yeah?)

I have to meet people? I'll be hiding behind the buffet table with the gallon jugs of cocktails I've swiped.
You don't HAVE to. You're welcome to just scoff all the 'cohols you can manage. *passes you cocktail umbrellas*

I am seriously blushing that you included me in a list of vidders.

Favourite characters and/or ships: Clark and Naruto are my absolute favorite characters at the moment, and mainly I ship Clark/Lex and Neji/Naruto. I also have an odd liking for Claire.
Least favourite characters/ships/shows: I hate most of the ships in Heroes. And I hate all the random ships in Kingdom Hearts, but that's okay! I hate Kingdom Hearts fandom in general. *beam*

I hate most of the ships on Heroes too. It's not a shippy show for me at all. I have a love-hate affair with it at the best of times. But shipping in that fandom, I am not inclined to do.

I've been meaning to ask you (after lurking about your journal and recs), is your slash-exclusivity of sorts a particular preference given your fandoms, or you're primarily a slash reader in general?

(I've been meaning to catch up on your posts, but, alas, college ate my brain. *sighs*)

Your favourite fannish creations/creators: On LJ I mostly know vidders. bradcpu, obsessive24, milly, whereistheluv, buffyann, charmax, bop_radar (for the meta as well!)...oh I could go on and on, my vidding friends-list is a good indication of the vidders I really like. :) There are several non-LJ vidders (and writers) I love as well, but they're a much bigger pain to link to. :P

Main fandom(s): Smallville! While tiptoeing the DC universe!
Favourite characters and/or ships: Lex Luthor, Clark "BDA" Kent, Lionel "MB" Luthor; Clark/Lex (canon), Chloe/Lex (het OTP), Lex/Lana (ex-pairing that I haven't let go of yet)

Least favourite characters/ships/shows: No one/nothing has made me turn off my television (yet).
What you post on LJ: mostly links, squee-age/reactions, my version of humor, a handful of recs/fannish-oriented introspection, and the occasional fannish contribution (icons/meta/fanmixes/picspams/fanfics). ^^;;;
Other fandoms or fannish interests: Supernatural, House, Num3rs, and Dexter are my other ongoing TV loves. I lurk in all of them, as well as my other not-so-active fandoms in my LJ interests.
Interested in meeting: For now, anyone from Smallville! I have to confess I'm easily intimidated by people in internet communities (I'm more gregarious offline), but I like reading and discussing with those who don't mind that I'm a single-minded Lex fan. :D

About You
Describe yourself in 30 words or less: An avid movie/art film/filmfest fan, though I don't often write about them. Considers music as a celibate's equivalent of sex. College student in the Philippines. Distractions include arcades, dining, photography, art, and family.

Favourite movies: The movies I've been fannish about are Star Wars, Pirates of the Carribean, X-Men (except X3), and some exemplary examples of Asian cinema.
Favourite books: The Inferno, Good Omens, The Little Prince, American Gods, Harry Potter, Chronicles of Narnia, the Sharpe Series by Bernard Cornwell, and P.G. Wodehouse's Jeeves and Wooster series. If graphic novels count, Neil Gaiman's Sandman, and lots of manga. ^_^
Refreshment of choice: Hardcore fan of coffee.
Anything else we should know?
I am a spoilerphobe, and unfortunately, I watch Supernatural, House, and Num3rs one season late. >_< I flail about fannish stuff as much as I do in life, but thankfully tempered by sense of humor above all better senses.

Favourite music: I’m all over the place and there’s little I won’t listen to outside of rap and 99.9% of country, but I’m most heavily into traditional Celtic (in a mildly obsessed way), Brit, Scots, Irish, and Aussie bands that the US radio tends to ignore for the most part.
Favourite movies:Star Wars, OT, Evil Dead/Army of Darkness (I <3 Bruce Campbell madly), frak there are just way too many to name actually, but my taste runs to sci-fi and suspense for the most part.
Favourite books:All of them. :-P I’ll read damn near anything on any subject if it interests me, fiction or non. This is making me wonder if I have ADD leanings…

Can I tell you how you have prevented me from doing ANYTHING this weekend? :) I happened to stumble upon Do You Believe In Magic and then had to start reading everything that you've written so far.

So much love for your writing ♥

Fannish Background
Name: abby82
Age: 25
Main fandom(s): Smallville, The X-Files, Forever Knight
Favourite characters and/or ships: Smallville: Lois Lane, Clark Kent, Lana Lang, Chloe Sullivan; Lois/Clark, Lex/Lana, and not a ship but the Chlo-Lo dynamic
The X-Files: Fox Mulder, Dana Scully; Mulder/Scully, Krycek/Marita
Forever Knight: Nick Knight, Natalie Lambert, Janette DuCharme, Lucien LaCroix, Don Schanke; Nick/Natalie, Nick/Janette
Least favourite characters/ships/shows: I really try to avoid the character hate although the Chlois bunch does annoy sometimes. I don't like that to elevate one character some have to trash another one. That in general doesn't sit well with me regardless of fandom which is why I don't take too kindly to Lana bashers within the Smallville fandom or Doggett and Reyes bashers in X-Files.
What you post on LJ: Since I just started an LJ I'm using it for episodic rants, reviews, picspams, fic, and fannish ramblings
Other fandoms or fannish interests:Friday Night Lights, House, Blood Ties, Deadwood, Rome, Gilmore Girls, Homicide: Life on the Streets, Quantum Leap, Slings & Arrows, Masters of the Universe and until I loose interest, the show fails to improve or gets cancelled Gossip Girl, Moonlight, and Journeyman, respectively.
Interested in meeting: Hey I'm just happy I finally decided to join in after a year of watching from the sidelines. Lois and Lana fans.

About You
Describe yourself in 30 words or less: Easily amused, easily distracted, and prone to wandering off into tangents; tv lover.
Favourite music: I listen to a little of everything but Foo Fighters, Damien Rice, Depeche Mode are favs.
Favourite movies: I'm particularly fond of Moulin Rouge, Grave of the Fireflies, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, The Bicycle Thief, and Singin' in the Rain.
Favourite books: I'm a big reader of historical non-fiction and I'm currently loving At Day's Close: Night in Times Past
Refreshment of choice: Nice and tart lemonade
Anything else we should know? I'm a LJ newbie so I'm still getting a handle on posting.

Delightful Things
Your best work: I'm rather proud of my Masters WIP When Fates Collide. It was my first foray into actively writing fic. I also like how Lost and Found my missing scene Smallville fic turned out, especially the Lois voice.
Your favourite fannish creations/creators: The fic work of vision_girl_sv, extrasolar, and Jade are phenomenal and I'm so glad I've come upon the fic of mskatej The Reign of Terror vids and those of VisionGirl are also great.

Ohhh, how refreshing! I don't take kindly to Lana bashers either. Or Lois bashers. Or bashing in general. It's just not necessary and is an unfortunate aspect of fandom.

I'm just happy I finally decided to join in after a year of watching from the sidelines
Congrats on taking the plunge! It's good to see some new faces in SV fandom! And I just checked out your Lois fic and it's GREAT! *bounces* You should write more Lois pov!!

Nice and tart lemonade
Ohh, that sounds yummy!

*friends*
