Poll: Tell Me about You  
Hey, it's Yuletide Eve! And I know most of you are probably doing - I don't know, family things, or festive things, or possibly trying to put together something with nine million plastic parts - but I am here. Waiting. Very impatiently. And if you're here, too, you could take my poll. Clicking entertainment for you! Distraction for me! Everyone wins!

Lots of people say "Whoniverse," actually.

Doesn't help. When you say Whoniverse, I still expect the Doctor to join hands with all his companions and sing "Fa who dor ray" (or however it goes) and then eat some roast beast.

...I suppose the Master would be playing the part of the Grinch. WAIT NO STOP I AM NOT THINKING ABOUT THIS ANYMORE.

Define fandoms. As in, things I currently enjoy, things I read, or things I'm active in, writing-wise & community-wise? *g*

It is an exercise left to the poll-taker, for only you know what is a current fandom for you! But, well, when I took it I defined it as things I'm actively seeking fannish product in.

Fandoms come and fandoms go, but Sports Night will always have a special place in my heart. <3 I should probably read some fic that was written more than ten years ago. :X

Rats, I should have said DRESDEN also:) And many others that I would die if someone actually wrote a fic or two for!

Yuletide is coming, so you may well get your wish! But, um, please don't die. No story is worth that!

Um, it looks like the count is fixed, anyway. So there's hope!
Lady Moira: fangirlrosaleendhu on December 25th, 2008 02:18 am (UTC)
I really don't think of myself as active in any of the above-listed fandoms, but I'm perfectly happy to read fics in quite a few of them when I stumble across them on my friends list.
tried to eat the safe banana: TFV flowersthefourthvine on December 25th, 2008 04:44 am (UTC)
I'm that way about some of these myself (and about Weiss Kreuz and Saiyuki, for that matter), so I completely get that.

tried to eat the safe banana: SN stick aroundthefourthvine on December 25th, 2008 04:46 am (UTC)
In all truth, it's hard to consider Sports Night a current fandom just because there aren't a lot of new stories coming out for it. But I still loooooooove it.

Oh, Dan and Casey. *hearts*
Tuesdayeverysecondtues on December 25th, 2008 02:30 am (UTC)
I decided to be adventuresome and try three exchanges this holiday season. Luckily, one of them is spaced out much further, and I actually don't get my assignment until the 26th, I think.

I can't wait for Yuletide to be open and for more of the fakenews-fanfic Secret Santa fic, though! It's going be amazing.
tried to eat the safe banana: Yuletide Woot!thefourthvine on December 25th, 2008 04:47 am (UTC)
Ooo, clever idea with the not sending assignments out until the 26th; I admire whichever exchange that is.

Also, wow, three. See, I can only ever do Yuletide. I mean, that's it, my only exchange all year. So I admire anyone who can manage more than that. (And stare in astonished fear at the people doing FIVE, OMG.)

Or, you know. Just making dinner about now. Also, that picking Sports Night made you happy? That's just a plus. :)

I love Sports Night so much. Some fannish loves just never fade, you know?

And, hey, making dinner: I believe that counts as a family thing. (It better! That's what I was doing in between putting up this poll and feeding the earthling.)
Pet: MSC Leverage Tiny Ninjaapetslife on December 25th, 2008 02:32 am (UTC)
I am reading my friendslist on a wee netbook and actually missed the
"enter your other fandom here" field, but yes, LEVERAGE, definitely and absolutely and YAY. It's a total sweetheart of a show with a heart as big as ten Whovilles, and about as much subtlety as a brickbat to the head, but hilarious and awesome no matter what. It's so fun. I love it!

(Also, Live Free Or Die Hard. What??? There's a lot of great fic, actually!)

Your ICON!!!!

I love Eliot. I'm not sure whether I love him more than I love Parker, tho. Or whether I love Parker more than I love Eliot.

Ah hell, speaking of OLD fandoms, I think I'll be Kuno!

I haven't read Hikaru no Go in ages, but I will always look back at it fondly. It's one of the few manga series that I can read over and over again and still get something new out of it every time. *chinhands*
tried to eat the safe banana: HnG Akira Hikaruthefourthvine on December 25th, 2008 05:30 am (UTC)
I still re-read it from time to time. And I rewatched the whole thing - really weird for me! - when the earthling was extremely new and I spent all my time either nursing or pumping. I love it so very much - it and Princess Tutu are the things I'd make everyone watch/read if I could.

Oh, Akira. Oh, Hikaru. *heart swells with love*

I came initially for fic recs. I stayed because of you, because you are entertaining and lovely and hilarious.

Knowing you is one of those gifts that keeps on giving, in a really great way.

tried to eat the safe banana: TFV lettersthefourthvine on December 25th, 2008 05:31 am (UTC)
Thank you. That is really wonderful to hear, and I mean that sincerely. (For some reason, I sometimes sound sarcastic when I am being my most sincere. It's very sad.)

It's been good getting to know you. <3!
xnicholle on December 25th, 2008 02:36 am (UTC)
There needs to be more Sports Night fic in the world. Remember the renaissance that was going on a year or so ago? When fic was pouring out regularly? Best time in my fannish life.
tried to eat the safe banana: SN stick aroundthefourthvine on December 25th, 2008 05:33 am (UTC)
That was a wonderful time indeed. Oh, Sports Night - you are so awesome and so underloved. (Not unloved! Many people love you! It's just that everyone in the world should love you.)

I'd also like to hear more dog stories. Those are often amusing. (Yam!)

bethbethbeth and jain are, indeed, insane. I admire them! But from afar, because OMG what if it's catching?

I'd also like to hear more dog stories. Those are often amusing. (Yam!)

Sadly, the sweet potato dog, Cassie, died just before Thanksgiving, so there will not be many more dog stories. (She was the comedian of the two.)
