The Rules: Sometimes it's ok to pimp yourself out. Post a list of your top five fic-favorites you've written, regardless of fandom or the reason you love them. This isn't about the BEST things you've written, but what you LOVE most. Then tag five other people to do the same.

The Other Rules: After each story, add a little something about what you learned about writing in the process. Or, if you didn't learn anything, add something that fits contextually with the time of writing the story.

1. The Little Britain Trilogy: Little Britain / The Last Room / The Marked  Fandom = Star Trek: Enterprise
Lesson Learnt: Sometimes having a plot worked out beforehand is better than diving in and working it out as I go along (that said, it's not a lesson I've learnt well lol). Also, I loved this story, all three of 'em, I loved the OCs I created and I just loved it - even if by the end it wasn't that popular :)

2. Aftermath   Fandom= Star Trek: Enterprise
Lesson Learnt: Well, I learnt the value of a good beta-reader. Plus, it was a learning curve character wise - not in huge ways - but yeah. This one does hold a special place with me.

3. Croonin' Along to the Warp Core        Fandom= Star Trek: Enterprise
Lesson Learnt: This was EPIC! And so much fun to write - the research that went into getting all the lyrics and the songs - it was just silly humour really. There was a lesson here in research and restraint in a way - I didn't go as mad with it as I originally wanted to, and I'm glad I reigned it in because I loved the end result.

4. Denial       Fandom= Life On Mars
Lesson Learnt: I didn't as such learn a lesson from this, it was my first attempt at Life On Mars fanfic and looking across all my other LOM stories probably the best. I did learn I prefer writing Gene over Sam though if that counts :)

5. Mission Report         Fandom= Stargate Atlantis
Lesson Learnt:  That past childhood traumas over films involving talking toasters can always be solved by having fictional characters beat said toaster with a broken lamp. Seriously, The Brave Little Toaster scared the crap out of me when I was young.

I tag everyone whose reading this :)

[livejournal.com profile] t_eyla  listed me in the paranoia meme, and in order to get the questions I had to promise to do it.

1) There are 30 questions. Answer each with the nick of one person from your f-list.
2) Post the list of names.
3) People who want to know the questions will have to promise to do the meme.

Putting the list under a cut to spare peoples flists :)

The list :) )

The Big Read reckons that the average adult has only read 6 of the top 100 books they've printed. Well let's see.

1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Italicize those you intend to read.
3) Underline the books you love.
4) Reprint this list in your own LJ so we can try and track down these people who've read 6 and force books upon them. ;-)

You Are a Strawberry

You are friendly, outgoing, and well liked by many people.
You are popular, but there's nothing you ordinary or average about you.

You a very interesting person, and you have many facets to your personality.
Sometimes you feel very conflicted. Your different sides of your personality pull at you.

You are a very sensual and passionate person. You are fiery... you can't help it.
In general, you keep your passionate side under wraps. You are only wild in private.

Don't entirely remember where I got this from but it was snagged from somewhere:

Name any story I've written, and any character in it, canon or OC. I'll tell you three things about that character that I didn't put in the story. One request per person.

(actually I'm not that fussy personally about how many requests people put in)

Found this meme thing on someone's livejournal - whose livejournal? I have no idea, there's no guarantees I know them in any way shape or form but still...this amused me :P

If you had me under your command and could make me write anything, regardless of whether or not I know the fandom or if anybody even writes fic in that fandom and no matter how crack-addled it might be, what would you love to see me write?

You never know I may even write it *shrugs*

Nabbed this from [profile] t_eyla

If you comment, I'll...

1. Tell you why I friended you.
2. Associate you with something. A fandom, a song, a colour, a piece of fruit. SOMETHING.
3. Tell you something I like about you.
4. Tell you a memory I have of you.
5. Associate you with a character/pairing.
6. Ask something I've always wanted to know about you. (Or else I'll just ask a random question. I reserve that right.)
7. Tell you my favorite user pic of yours.
8. In return, you must spread this disease in your LJ.

(if you want, you can ignore #8 - unless, of course, you're worried the Meme Stasi might get you ;) )

If you read this, if your eyes are passing over this right now, even if we don't speak often, please post a comment with a memory of you and me. It can be anything you want -- good or bad. If you're so inclined, post this meme exercise on your own LJ and be surprised (or mortified!) about what people remember about you.
