Make-Your-Own-Meme / Ask me anything

Hey guys! Did you know my friends are awesome? WELL THEY ARE! SO awesome that I will steal all their ideas. This is how I show I love you.

So the awesome [personal profile] seventhe had this great idea to post every day in November, meme-style, but to have the questions/topics be determined by friends/commenters/drive-by anons. THIS SOUNDS FABULOUS. I want one! SO I'M HAVING ONE.

Thing is, I just fail at journaling. Like I really do. Getting better at that was supposed to be part of my Quotidian Creativity project. Which I'm. There's been like total radio silence on that, but hey, why not, a quick update: I am both failing it and passing it with flying colours. Further updates sometime in November once this ridiculous/awesome/ridiculous story I'm cowriting is EFFING DONE jfc.

... but anyway. I'm bad at journaling and I hear I am like. Mysterious or something? What? I am not mysterious! Just. Shy?

But whatever, let's fix it! Rules are more or less same as [personal profile] seventhe's:
  1. There's a list from 1-30, for the 30 days of November.

  2. Leave me comments with anything you want to see me write about. General topics? Questions for me! Whatever it is, I am supposed to blog about it at least a little that day! I'm really not that private a person in terms of what kinds of questions I am or am not willing to answer, so don't be shy! Weird personal stuff is fine -- if you want to hear about it, I will try to answer it XD

  3. I'll put topics in the list in the order the corresponding comments were received. Anyone can comment, on LJ or DW, with OpenID or just anonymously. You don't have to know me, even!

  4. Yeah I am not going to assume that 30 people will leave me topics, so feel free to do more than one! Just try to do no more than two at a time, and if you come back for more rounds, try to space those out so I'm not doing like a week straight of just one person.

I'll do one a day (hopefully won't miss any, but will make up with two in a day at need). The end! Have fun =D

I am predictable! What book/series do you think everyone should read? (For whatever definition of everyone you like: your flist, the whole world, people who say [x]...)

ALRIGHT. *GREEDY HANDS* YOU HAVE ASKED FOR IT.

[personal profile] seventhe 2010-10-26 07:14 pm (UTC)(link)

Fandom. You asked me about fandom, so I want to ask back, but in a different slant (cause you can comment on mine and then I'll comment on yours NO I AM NOT CHEATING): Talk about what you get out of fandom. What you do, where you go, why you love it, when you hate it. Talk about giving back to fandom, whether you think people "could" or "should" or whether people expect too much from it? Fandom as fun, fandom as srs bsns, anything inbetween. Talk about how awesome it is! And how it could be better! Any fandoms applicable.

I want to hear about the most amazing thing you've ever eaten. Amazingly good, amazingly bad, amazingly "wtf is in my mouth," whatever!

Also, tropes and/or clichés that you love so much you're willing to put up with aggressively mediocre works for their sake.

Conversely: the trope that irrevocably destroys a story for you.

Or, if you prefer something more cheerful: your favourite kind of weather, and why.

I'm curious to see more on your thoughts on writing versus art. How do you approach these two creative processes? How are they the same; how are they different? Really anything at all on the connections/disconnections would be great.

1. Some things you want to do with your art in the future! (Comics? *coughscrivencough* SOMETHING ELSE?)

2. Vidding! What do you like about vids? What are some of your favorites? If you vid, what kind of genius will be presented with?

3. Any five books from your "to be read" stack -- why are they there?

It's the entire internet, no lie. I see one that's awesome, I grab it and run. They're like Pokemon! I find a lot at ONTD, truthfully. This means I have to admit to reading ONTD. But it's funny sometimes okay. :|

We have had some interesting discussions about ratings and warnings in the past! What are your current thoughts on these issues? Have they changed at all? How have debates about ratings and warnings, and/or your work on the newsletter and/or AO3 affected the way you use them?

um! I forget if I've asked you this one before, but your planning/outlining style? How does it change depending on the length of the piece?

I am going to request you discuss something very near and dear to my heart:

INCEST.

... in fiction.

Please note that "fiction" (almost typed "fuction" what) can include any and all forms of fandom activity! SO IF YOU WANT TO WRITE A TWENTY-PAGE DISSERTATION ON LAGUNA/SQUALL, GO AHEAD.
