New friends!  
Hello new friends! *waves*

As way of introduction, I have a couple of memes.

herohunter tagged me for the Simple Pleasures meme.

Name Ten of Life's Simple Pleasures:
1. The second coffee of the morning--the one that *really* wakes you up, or the one that you get just for the taste (Laurent's mocchacino on the way to work, if you're me)
2. Going to a movie on your own.
3. Mum's chicken curry
4. A new icon!
5. A bookshop
6. Flopping round the house in my Pjs--sometimes this is called for!
7. Dancing or singing along to a favourite track when noone's there
8. Hot chocolate after skiing or a long walk in the cold air
9. Hugs from my boy
10. Curling up with a favourite book
I don't want to tag anyone in particular, but go on--do it! I can vouch that it makes you feel happyful. *g*


Ten Random Things Meme, from norwich36, with thanks for the handy paste-able list!
How long have I been in fandom: actively? about 6 months, but I have a long history of watching shows fairly fannishly, thanks partially to supacat, and partially to my own obsessive nature.
First fannish crush: uh, Clex? That's the one that hooked me in to active fandom, so I'll say that
Character I love that most people probably don't: heee Lois, and shh... I even like Lana on occasion! (on OCCASION people, don't freak out!)
Pairing I love that most people probably don't: Clois!!!
First slash couple I shipped: oh... hm, probably Buffy/Faith actually
Character whose life I'd like to have for just one day: ah... that's hard. I'd probably say Lex, so that I could sneakily do the world some good with all the money he has, while appearing to be evil and frakking with everyone!
Why I became an SV fan: supacat made me and then abandonned me here! *sobs like a lost child* (that's only partly true!)
Favorite snack: coffee (is coffee a snack? it is now!)
Place I lived once that I'd love to be able to return to: Paris. I lived there for a few months while studying French. I got a year pass to the Louvre and used to go there after school! It was on my bus route home... I was very miserable at that time in my life, but I'm still really proud I went there, and it would be great to go back in happier spirits
Random fact(s) about me in real life: I have a blackbelt in tae kwon-do (although I'm not practising at the moment--such a slackass!), my first word was 'book', my workplace may be the last one in the world to have a 'tea lady', and I just booked a ticket to see Radiohead in Copenhagen (*boggles*).


FYI, if you are curious about my Smallville or BSG meta, it's collected here.
My crack!fic PhotocopyBoy!Lex is collected here

And if you are new to my f'list, you should ask me a question! Any question! *g*

Hi! *waves*

How long have I been in fandom:Three years

First fannish crush:Severus Snape

Character I love that most people probably don't:Mikey (QaF)

Pairing I love that most people probably don't:Martha/Lionel though 'love' is a strong word; maybe more intrigued by it

First slash couple I shipped:Snarry, but the first fan fic I read was *gasp* het, Severus/OC

Character whose life I'd like to have for just one day:Lex, and I would take that opportunity in his body to snogg Clark senseless and get the ball rolling. He'd thank me later for being in his body. He would. *nods*

Why I became an SV fan:Teh CLEX! Also, it was the best new series on tv for a while. Kinda went downhill in S3, crashed S4, though S5 looks pretty good -- haven't seen it yet though

Favorite snack:taco chips, any flavour and cheese popcorn

Place I lived once that I'd love to be able to return to: Colorado

Random fact about me in real life:I hate toothpaste

K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Bop_radar TWbop_radar on March 23rd, 2006 10:06 pm (UTC)
Hee! I can't actually remember the first fanfic I read... it was so long ago! It's quite possible that it was either Voyager slash or X-files Mulder/Kryacek... I read fanfic (in a very fussy way) long before I actually became at all active in fandom.

And yes, Season 5 is great! It has a couple of weak eps, but also some brilliance--I hope you enjoy it when you get to see it!
decisively indecisive: 80s teen comedy plot - ktastic iconsbouncymonkey on March 23rd, 2006 12:11 pm (UTC)
Mornin'!

How long have I been in fandom: About three years, mainly BtVS

First fannish crush: Ooh, let me think. Faith? Giles?

Character I love hate that most people probably don't love: Spike *hides

Pairing I love that most people probably don't: Wes/Illyria, which would have been fascinating

First slash couple I shipped: Angel/Wes OTP baby.

Why I became an SV fan: I blame those SPN boys and the fact that they all film in Vancouver. I downloaded S4 for The Ackles, and stayed for Lex

Favorite snack: Salt and vinegar crisps, YUM

Place I lived once that I'd love to be able to return to: I couldn't imagine living anywhere other than London, as it's the bestest city in the world. I wouldn't mind spending some more time in Rome though.

Random fact(s) about me in real life: Last year I saw 52 different bands play live, about 10 of those more than once. I'm addicted to cookery shows.
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Lex swordbop_radar on March 23rd, 2006 10:10 pm (UTC)
Faith! Giles! Hee--that's great. I love Faith and used to have bitter arguments with people in RL about her. All my fannish BtVS activity was in RL, not online, but I converted swathes of people to the show... so it sort of counts. ;)

Angel/Wes!!! Yay! Love 'em. And yes, Wes/Illyria would have been great--I hated Fred but loved Illyria.

You're the first person I've met that got into SV through the WB4! That's great... And yes, Lex has amazing pulling power. :p

mmm... salt and vinegar!

And oh, 52 bands? I am very jealous. Favourites?

I like cookery shows too... I have an embarrassing fondness for Jamie Oliver.
blowjobs for jesus: Jon Stewart Sodomykristiinthedark on March 23rd, 2006 07:31 pm (UTC)
Okay, so you might know all of this about me, but I love these kinds of things! So....

How long have I been in fandom: Since my last vacay from work. About 5 months is my best guess. I knew fandom was out there, but I didn't really know anything about it. I'd always been a fan of certain shows, but never a real fangirl.
First fannish crush: Clex. I 'shipped Spike/Buffy, but never the way I obsessively 'ship Clex.
Character I love that most people probably don't: Probably Jonathan. I just keep seeing Bo Duke (my first tv crush), so while he says annoying things sometimes, I still love him.
Pairing I love that most people probably don't: Hmmm... I'm really all about Clex. I can't see past it.
First slash couple I shipped: Again, Clex. God, I am so predictable.
Character whose life I'd like to have for just one day: Clark, so I could go to Lex, tell him my secrets and fuck him senseless.
Why I became an SV fan: I came for the James Marsters, and stayed for the Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum. Only later did I come to appreciate the plots. And by the plots, I mean the gay.
Favorite snack: Hard question! I love salty snacky food. Olives, pickled veggies, cheese. Mmmm.
Place I lived once that I'd love to be able to return to: MacGregor Bay, Ontario. I lived there for a summer when I was 23, and it was one of the most incredible times of my life. Hiking, boating, sailing, reading Agatha Christie novels on the pier. *sigh*
Random fact(s) about me in real life: I taught myself how to ride a bike when I was 4. My dad worked nights at the oil plant, my mom had four other children, I figured I was on my own.
I hate peanut butter unless it's in savory dishes, like Thai.
I learned how to write in cursive before I learned how to print.
I broke my head when I was 6. Really! Hair-line fracture of the skull, and there was this strange bruise there that was soft rather than hard. I swear to this day, that bump took away all of my upper-math skills. There has to be a reason that algebra and geometry baffle me so.
Nora Norwichnorwich36 on March 23rd, 2006 08:09 pm (UTC)
You have the best icon ever! (Sorry, just had to butt in and say that.) Also, "And by the plots, I mean the gay" made me laugh out loud.
blowjobs for jesus: colbert sodomykristiinthedark on March 23rd, 2006 08:18 pm (UTC)
I couldn't remember which icon I used, so I had to come check! And ah yes, I love my Daily Show icons. They're by raelala. They make me giggle every time I use them.

Also, "And by the plots, I mean the gay" made me laugh out loud.

Hee! It's funny, because it's true!
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: House mockingbop_radar on March 23rd, 2006 10:13 pm (UTC)
And by the plots, I mean the gay...

Hee! that goes down as one of my favourite fandom lines ever! I'd quite like to quote you--I'm going to rejig my LJ layout, I think.

Oh wow--your Ontario summer sounds dreamy!

Hee! And you're just lucky you have an excuse about the algebra and geometry! ;)
blowjobs for jesuskristiinthedark on March 23rd, 2006 10:17 pm (UTC)
Hee! Why, yes, you can quote me. *does hair flippy thing*.

And hey, as far the math thing goes, I might be reaching... Okay I'm reaching, but damn! There has to be *some* reason!
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Chocolate OTPbop_radar on March 23rd, 2006 10:19 pm (UTC)
Heh hee! Thanks, I'll credit you of course! ;)

My mother blames her brother's strange social behaviour on the fact she dropped him down the stairs at age 2 ... I think she's reaching as well!
Nora Norwich: fall on your kneesnorwich36 on March 23rd, 2006 08:12 pm (UTC)
You have a black belt? Wow, I wouldn't have joked about your plot for world domination if I had known that! :p

K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Laura Ellenbop_radar on March 23rd, 2006 10:15 pm (UTC)
Be careful who you mess with on the net! ;)
It's oddly useful to drop into conversation with authors too...
tyffi: MR/Spongebobtyffi on March 23rd, 2006 08:20 pm (UTC)
Hi! *waves*

How long have I been in fandom: seriously, I have no idea. A few years... maybe more, maybe less. (Hee, I'm the queen of clear answers *g*)

First fannish crush: Pacey from Dawson's Creek. *blushes* Hey, you asked for the first. :p

Character I love that most people probably don't: Morgan Edge. And Lana. Since season 5. But I always loved Morgan Edge. He should've been longer on the show. *nods*

Pairing I love that most people probably don't: Uhm... good question. I like Mionel.

First slash couple I shipped: Spike/Xander...

Character whose life I'd like to have for just one day: Lionel!!! Definately him. He's gorgeous!

Why I became an SV fan: Michael Rosenbaum! Any questions?

Favorite snack: coffee coffee flavoured chocolate.

Place I lived once that I'd love to be able to return to: Kristiansand, Norway. It's not quite exciting there, but it's a wonderful town.

Random fact(s) about me in real life: I close chips bags with a staple gun. I'm scared of thunderstorms. One of my roommates is gay and our cat's called Lana. Oh, and I can't live without coffee!
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Clois going downbop_radar on March 23rd, 2006 10:18 pm (UTC)
Pacey! Hee.

And whee, yay for another coffee addict!

Kristiansand, Norway? Cool. I've never been to Scandinavia but would love to go.

Closing chip bags with a staple gun is... very strange. *eyes you suspiciously* But hey, everyone has quirks! ;)
complicat: Clex_friends: voldythingcomplicat on March 24th, 2006 12:11 am (UTC)
I'm not new but....


How long have I been in fandom: About 18 months now I think. Sure, I liked shows before but I had no idea that there were other people who understood

First fannish crush: Clex.

Character I love that most people probably don't: Lionel. I love an evil bastard, especially a magnificant one like Lionel

Pairing I love that most people probably don't: Hmm. I'm pretty mainstream I think. Maybe Lex/Lionel, in an "oh that's so wrong and sick and hot" kind of way

First slash couple I shipped: Clex. I'd never seen SV and only just found out that slash wasn't just something that went on in my sick little head, and a friend recced me a Clex fic as a good slashy starting point. That's the kind of friend I need more of.

Character whose life I'd like to have for just one day: Lex, because I could do pretty much anything I wanted and get away with it

Why I became an SV fan: Luthors. First SV I saw was Lex and Lionel's confrontation at the end of Phoenix. I was hooked.

Favorite snack: Mini cheddars

Place I lived once that I'd love to be able to return to: I've only lived in 4 places and they are all in or around London. I like where I am now the best.

Random fact(s) about me in real life: My first TV crush was on Peter Davison (the 5th Doctor)

Hee! Thanks for filling it out! It's always good to hear from you.

I would do that thing there but I'm all commented out K! So many new people! *is tired*

I love that you could kick all of our asses. And remind us semi-regularly! :)
