Can anyone believe it's been 6 years (as of May 5)? Or that I've made 5000 posts? Okay, well, yes, a lot of those were beck from when I did news posts as a way to avoid thinking about hell lab and all, but still. 5000. Given that those of you that have been with me for much of that time haven't hit 5000, I don't know if I like what that says about me, but ah well.
This post has gone through a lot of drafts because I couldn't figure out the approach to take (and thanks, flist, for all the suggestions /sarcasm :P). I don't want to be mopey, I don't want to leave people out, and I want this to be fun. So it's going to be a catchall post! (In which I may hit the figure limit for the first time in a non-fanfic post). Also, hattip to halcyon_shfit
for the idea.
First, random lines from every post made on or around this day in the last six years:
You know what, the past via Memes is MUCH more fun.
Please feel free to participate in as many as you like:Meme 1
1. Reply with your name and I'll respond with something random about you.
2. I'll tell you what song/movie reminds me of you.
3. I'll pick a flavor of jello to wrestle with you in.
4. I'll say something that only makes sense to you and me.
5. I'll tell you my first memory of you.
6. I'll tell you what animal you remind me of.
7. I'll ask you something that I've always wondered about you.
8. If I do this for you, you must post this on your journal.
Meme 2( Seven songs )
So, if you are so inclined, this would be the place where you can feel free to ask me 3-5 questions about myself, my opinions, my writing, my icons, or whatever. I'll answer to the best of my ability --- depending on the subject matter, the response posts will be under a general flist lock (ie, I don't talk about work in public posts, etc).
Meme 4Who on LJ/DW do you ship me with? Bonus points for outlining the ridiculous AU fic that you would write about us.
Meme 5 -
Give me a character from any fandom, tv show, movie, book you know that I know and I will tell you:
a. My favorite thing about that character.
b. My least favorite thing about that character.
c. One person I would ship them with in their own verse.
d. One crossover ship for them I think would be neat.
e. One crossover universe for them I think would be even neater.
f. Their ship from hell.
g. Their song.
h. The title of their biography or autobiography.
i. The last bad dream they had.
j. How they're gonna shuffle off the mortal coil, if they haven't already.
Meme 6 - Time Stamp Meme
Basically, give me a time before or after any fic I've written, and I'll write at least 100 words on it. Fics here
, but look at tags as the round up post hasn't been updated in a while.
Meme 7 - Icon Meme
Ask me about one of my icons...Meme 8 - Fake Memory MemeIf 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 COMPLETELY MADE UP AND FICTIONAL memory of you and me. It can be anything you want - good or bad - BUT IT HAS TO BE FAKE.
When you're finished, post this little paragraph on your b
log and besurprised (or mortified) about what people DON'T ACTUALLY rememberabout you.Past results=hilarious
