Meme a day 2008-Day 167-Fannish Questions

Ganked from fajrdrako


1- What was your first online fandom?
2- Do you have a fandom related 'guilty pleasure' ?
3- Is there anything besides bad technical execution that consistently throws you out of a story?
4- Unpopular fannish opinion?
5- Is there a work of fiction you *wish* had a (or a bigger) fannish following?


1- What was your first online fandom? - House MD, specifically House/Wilson. Within the first few days after seeing my first disk from Netflix, (which I got out of order, so the first episode I remember seeing is Damned If You Do, which really pushed the slash buttons,) I was googling "House Wilson Slash" which took me to LJ in the form of house_slash and basically changed my life.

2- Do you have a fandom related 'guilty pleasure'?
In House fandom, it's definitely House/Chase. We're a few years past the height of the trend toward Bastard!House/Usedandabused!Chase, given Chase's character development, but it's still a major kink for me.

I don't think I really have a Who-verse or LOM-verse "guilty pleasure" because in those fandoms, I'm much less an adherent to an OTP, and I'm not guilty about my kinks. I'll probably never get tired of hate!sex in any fandom for almost any pairing.

3- Is there anything besides bad technical execution that consistently throws you out of a story?

Let me count the ways. OOC-ness. Smut cliches. Schmoopiness where it does not belong. There's just too much brilliant writing in the fandoms I follow for me to put up with mediocrity.


4- Unpopular fannish opinion?
Wear em' on my sleeve, don't I?
#1-I don't want House/Wilson canon and I hate fanservice. SUBTEXT ALL THE WAY.
#2-I hate Jack/Ianto with the white hot heat of a thousand blazing suns in the way it's been portrayed in the 2nd series. If we'd been left with subtext, flirtation, and oh, I don't know...subtlety, I might not be the rabid Jack/Anybody But Ianto shipper I am right now.


5- Is there a work of fiction you *wish* had a (or a bigger) fannish following?

Anything that will get more people away from SPN.

Now that I've fallen in love with Life on Mars, I'd definitely like to convert more people especially to make sure they get into the original before the American version pollutes the airwaves. On the other hand, I'm slightly happy to be back in a more cult-like situation. For one thing I'd like to be able to volunteer to write LOM for yuletide and I'm worried it'll get too popular to qualify this year.
