Comment with "Come at me, bro!"  Um, or whatever you feel like saying.  
• 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.


[livejournal.com profile] plaid_slytherin asked me:

1. How close did you come to being what you wanted to do when you grew up?

Well, I'm still in college, so I guess I still haven't become anything as such.  When I was a little kid, I wanted to be an artist, then a teacher, then a dolphin trainer, then a writer.  Right now, I'm thinking science writing.  I'm majoring in creative writing, so we'll see where that goes....

2. What's the worst thing you've ever eaten?

Nothing particularly awful comes to mind.  I really don't like gnocchi, so maybe that? 
 
3. How do you prefer to travel (plane, train, automobile, etc.)?

Hmm.  By car, I suppose.  I also quite like riding my bicycle to go places.  
 
4. What is your all-time favorite fic (any fandom)?

This is a hard one.  Probably the best fic I've ever read is "Stories We Tell Our Children," by [livejournal.com profile] calapine .  [livejournal.com profile] such_heights  has a lovely podfic of it, as well.  

5. If you had to move to another town, where would you pick to move?

Well, I've never been to Portland, but I have this idea that it is some kind of indie hippie hipster veg-friendly bicycle-crazy book-loving town.   I'd love to live there if that's true, but it gets a lot of rain, which wouldn't agree with my allergies.

Nope, you're doing it right!

1. What was your very first fandom and how did you get into it?
2. If you were an animal, what animal would you be and why?
3. What kind of weather do you like best?
4. If you could only watch 5 movies for the rest of your life, what would they be?
5. What is your favorite song?

1. What was your very first fandom and how did you get into it?
Harry Potter. It's been almost ten years, so I'm a little fuzzy on the details, but I think I found fanfiction through Mugglenet Interactive (they had these "books" you could buy/sell for forum money?), which ultimately led me to discover fanfiction.net, where I posted some truly horrific fanfiction, and from there I met other authors who guided me into the more interactive areas of fandom.

2. If you were an animal, what animal would you be and why?
I would totes be a cat. They lurk around all day, get fed, purr, and nobody ever tells them to clean up after themselves.

3. What kind of weather do you like best?
I like it when it's very warm and rainy.

4. If you could only watch 5 movies for the rest of your life, what would they be?
Star Wars: A New Hope
Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
Star Wars: The Return of the Jedi
The Fifth Element
Waterworld

5. What is your favorite song?
Oh, now that is a hard one. At this particular moment, I'm going to have to go with Blinding by Florence and the Machine--it makes me think of River and River/Doctor leik woah. /not obsessed at all.

Interesting answers! Sorry, I guess I didn't explain very well, though--you're supposed to post your answers on your journal, along with the directions at the top, in order to perpetuate the meme.

Oops! I think I was confusing, because people keep posting here. But you're actually supposed to post the meme directions and your answers to your own journal, in order to perpetuate it.

Your answers are really interesting! I enjoyed reading them. And congrats on art school--so that's why you're so good at drawing. :)

I love all your answers, though. Mulder and Scully are fantastic! And haha, your Wal-Mart fight sounds epic. :D
