Association Meme: Comment to this post and I will give you 5 subjects/things I associate you with. Then post this in your LJ and elaborate on the subjects given.ralst
gave me these five:1. Zombies!
Hrmm, what to say that I already haven't? I love horror movies. I think my love for all things zombie ties into #5, it's the survivalist aspect of it. That the neighbor who loaned you a cup of sugar yesterday could be trying to gnaw your arm off tomorrow. There's something extra creepy about a monster that is 'us' but with all its humanity stripped away. I also love the ubiquitous nature of them as monsters. Like, with serial killers/monsters there's usually just one of them, with zombies those mother f*ckers are *everywhere*!2. Dina Meyer
Don't forget to mark your calendars, ya'll. 'Cuz Dina will be on this Thursday's episode of Burn Notice
. Sure, she's playing Michael's ex instead of Fiona's but there's no problem fan fiction can't fix!! *sigh* If only there were the possibility that she'd be onscreen with Tricia Helfer!
Ahem, anyway, what's with my
fascination with Dina Meyer? I'm shallow and totally think she's hot. She's doesn't belong to the 'point and pose' school of action heroines. I like that, when playing the role of asskicker, Meyer *looks* like someone who can kick some ass. She's smart, funny, athletic, has no problem playing gay! She's Yancy Butler without the personal demons. Jill Wagner without the extensive resume!3. Football (soccer)
So? Who wants to go with me to South Africa in 2010? Heh. One of the things I like about soccer is it's a sport that hasn't been marred by tv. There are no time-outs (tv or otherwise), where the action comes to a grinding halt so broadcasters can shove in some more commercials. Something that, imo, has ruined American football. 3 hours for a game that (in total minutes) runs an hour? And, dear God, don't get me started on Baseball!4. Femslash Inquirer/Sappho
One day, I'd like to do a complete mock issue as opposed to just covers. Which is strange to say since, at the moment, I totally have the time to do such a thing. I try to do 'serious' graphics and they always feel.. lacking. So, I stick to the more humorous/tongue-in-cheek side of things. 5. Post Apocalypse femslash
Ha! We both know this was less of a question and more of a prod :P Part of the appeal is it strips the characters of their creature comforts, examines us at our best and our worst. As far as fic, I love apocalyptothon
but, like all pan-fandom/pairings ficathon, finding femslash is like looking for the proverbial needle in a haystack (the use of tags would help, great googly-moogly, could that comm use some tags).
I also like, in some ways and forms, how the genre 'evens the playing field' so to speak. To use BBC's Survivors as an example - how the housewife/mom can become a leader, a killer into a hero, a politician into a cultist. How people shape their new world and what baggage they choose to take with them.
I think the closet thing I've written recently (or posted publicly) would be my 'Tainted' fic. Which was more about the role-reversal of vampire/human, but it takes in a post-apocalypse type setting.
