Wanted to welcome new friends, so, *waves*, hello, come in. :)

-Comment with "Freaky Foes"
-I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can get to know you better.
-Update your journal with the answers to the questions.
-Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions. (Only if you want to.)

Questions asked by [livejournal.com profile] netgirl_y2k.

1. If you could commit one crime without fear of consequence what would you do?

Hmm... murder. I'd murder all my flatmates, because 1) there's too many of them and 2) they're too goddamn noisy, and if there's one thing I can't deal with it's unnecessary noise. :3 (And I've just made myself out to be a complete sociopath, haven't I? ... Don't hate me, I swear I'm a nice person. Just not... when I have to deal with noisy people.)

2. What's the fandom, pairing or trope that you least understand the appeal of?

Awh gawd... uhm... there's a lot of things I don't understand why people like them, be it tropes or pairings, but to narrow it down to one thing... it'd have to be the cases of 'Canon Queer Character Turns Straight and Is Shipped With the Main Character of X Fandom'. I don't really mind people shipping whatever they want -- 'ship and let ship' is my motto -- but when you go out of your way to pick a gay/lesbian character and you make them turn '"straight", all in order for you to pair them up with the main character of the opposite sex is just.... no. Go away.

3. Do you have any skills that would be useful in a post-apocalyptic dystopia?

*laughs* Nope. Not really. :P I guess I'm good at keeping a clear head, so that could come in handy?

4. Vampires or werewolves?

Well, I've been obsessed with werewolves as well as vampires, so... this is kind of a tough decision. But when it comes down to it, I guess I'll pick vampires. Why? Too many cases of 'buff guys taking off their shirts and turning into wolves' for my liking when it comes to werewolves. Why can't we have tons of girls taking off their tops and turning into wolves? :c

5. Which Game of Thrones house would you be in?

*ponders* I guess I'd... be a Targaryen. Dragons and madness sounds like good entertainment. :P

1. Florance and the machine. I like fantasy music liek that. I like india pop and hard rock and top 40.

2. All of the misunderstood ladies~ None of them come too close to me though (considering Ive never destroyed the world/killed anyone..) but I like Mele from Gekiranger a lot since she does bad things but she's never really evil.

3. I'm not a big movie person..I cant even think of one movie that has influenced me. I dont learn anything from movies.

4. i would call it something that sorta describes it so people would remember the name.

5. sexist/annoying guys. Saying really inappropriate stuff.
angry drivers...
and when people start talking behind other people backs because I have problems with adding in a comment as well before i can stop myself... (its something im working on)

I love Florence and the Machine. :3

Give it time~ But, yeah, misunderstood women own a big part of my heart!

Ah, okies!

That's a good way of approaching the naming task. ;)

Sexist/annoying guys should all jump into a lake and never resurface, imo. :P

I think it's canon - Wakaba should have fawned over someone else than Saionji. :P

Thankfully I haven't come across the turning-a-queer-character-straight thing in any of my recent fandoms but yeah, it's dreadful when that happens. :-/

Why can't we have tons of girls taking off their tops and turning into wolves?


Also: Freaky foes! :-D

I've seen them here and there (not many, but still) and I just steer clear of them. ;P

1. Which book could you reread over and over again and not get tired of?
2. What is your least favourite song? A song that's sure to make you go 'nope!'?
3. Do you have a pairing you're embarrassed to admit you enjoy/like together?
4. If you didn't have to worry about working for a living, what would you do?
5. If you had to describe yourself in five words, which would they be?

Me too. :-/

Awesome questions, thank youuuuuu! Will post the answers when I update my journal next. (I kind of like to put various things into one post so that I don't spam my flist.)

Freaky foes!

As for #2 on your list, I've seen it more than I would've expected with Tara in Buffy fandom. At the same time, I see BtVS fans interpreting canon straight characters as homosexual much more often than the other way around, but maybe that's not the case in other fandoms.

Tara was a character I had in mind when I wrote about it! :P I think people should feel free to ship whatever they want -- but when it comes to canonical queer characters being 'straightened out', I kind of end up being a grumpy lesbian. :P But I mostly have a problem with the 'pffft, this character was never gay/queer to begin with, they just needed a Straight Love Interest!' Those fic can go jump in a river.

1. What has been one of the happiest moments in your life?
2. What is, in your opinion, a fanfic that everyone should read because it's just that great?
3. If you could meet a historical figure, no matter whether they're dead or alive, who would you pick?
4. Three OTPs that you'll ship forever and ever till the day you die?
5. If you could be any type of animal, what would you be and why?
