29. What movie, book, or TV episode makes you cry without fail? (Or get wibbly, if you're not a crier.)

Hands down, the Buffy episode "The Body". It made me wibbly before, but now that I have lost my own mom, I cry like a little bitch. Every time. I always get choked up at Anya's "never have eggs or fruit punch" speech, but more than that, when Buffy actually finds Joyce. I can't even watch parts of that episode anymore unless I just feel like sobbing.

I cry when Dobby dies or at least get a little Claire-Danes-lip-trembly, and the first time I saw the end of HP:DH2, I cried when they showed Fred, Remus, and Tonks.

The movie the "Joy Luck Club" makes me cry sometimes. Especially at the end when Ming-Na's mom tells her that she always takes the worst quality for herself because she has the best quality heart.

28. What fandom and/or ship do you Just Not Get that everyone else seems to love?

27. What's a TV show you don't particularly like anymore, but still watch for some reason? Why? (If you're smarter than most of us, which show did you want to love, but gave up on?)

I have a surprising lot of holiday songs that I love.

25. We're on a roll with the holiday stuff. So… what's your favorite holiday movie or TV episode?

24. What's a special tradition in your family that makes the holiday season special to you?

Even before my parents got divorced, we spent Christmas Eve with my Mom's family and Christmas Day with my Dad's side. After they got divorced my mother and I started the tradition of going to the movies Christmas Day night after I came home from Dad's. Sometimes my brother would go with us, sometimes he wouldn't. I think the best time we ever had was when the 3 of us went to Fellowship of the Ring and my brother screamed "What the fuck? They end it there? THERE?" I did not think Mom and I would ever stop laughing.

The year my Mom died, I was very lost. I was so numb I don't even remember that year. She died 2 days before Christmas. The following year was the hard one. My brother was in jail, and I didn't know how Christmas was going to go now that I was aware of my surroundings, but my stepmom and Dad made it better. We had brunch instead of lunch and then went to a noon movie. We started a new tradition, and I look forward to it every year now.

23. The holidays are coming. Which means good food. Share a recipe for a dish you love to enjoy during the Merry Thanksmas season. (So we can enjoy it too!)

Homemade Flavored Crackers

2 sleeves of saltine crackers
1 pkg dry Ranch seasoning (3 tbls if you have a container of dry Ranch dressing mix)
2 TBLS Red pepper flakes
1 Tbls Garlic powder
2/3 cup of canola oil

Put all ingredients in a giant ziplock and shake until crackers and nicely coated. Let set over night for best results. The longer those flavors have to soak in, the better they taste.

Best with chili, stew, or with soft cheeses.

22. Tell us about the obscure fandom/ship you love that you wish there was MOAR fic for. (Or any fic at all.)

I don't read fic much anymore. And if there wasn't fic for something I wanted to read, I wrote it. If there was a pairing I wanted to play with, I wrote it. Did you know that in my HP fic "I Have Never Felt Your Fear", I hooked Neville up with Hannah? WELL before the last book came out. Which all of that was mostly D/G and Blaise/Luna with a dash of Greg/Padma. I thought Neville deserved a nice girl. Turns out he really got one in the books.

I wrote a few Oz/Tara fics back in the day too.

I rarely ever read anything fic-wise that was exactly what I wanted, so that's why I started writing it. I would like stuff, sure, love it even, but there was always those one or two things I'd have done differently.

21. What about LJ keeps you coming back? (Because let's be honest. This place is old. BUT WE ALL LOVE IT ANYWAY. WHY???)

I haven't been until lately. I started posting again because I got a challenge email from [ profile] elle_blessing Also, I have a permanent account. I used to blog alot, but I get too busy writing my books to blog, but sometimes I do miss blogging. I mean, I met a great deal of my friends through fandom, and this was the fandom place to be back in the day.
spankerella: (felicity)
20. Who is your favorite sidekick?

I love Diggle and Felicity as the sidekicks on Arrow. Especially Felicity. She's so adorkable.

And recently I *LOVE* Thor choosing Loki as a sidekick in Thor 2. HILARIOUS.

Of all time, I would have to say Willow or Giles from Buffy, but that was really more of a team effort. Like the Avengers. I dig everyone in the team. Also if he can be considered a sidekick, Phil Coulson. He kind of went pro this year, though, has his own team now.

And Short Round from Temple of Doom.

18. Share your favorite fandom places/sites outside of LJ.

I think this one's kind of lame. Twitter, I guess? I don't really go to any "fandom" places anymore, so instead of giving an answer, I'm going to post this video of Hiddles bustin' a move.

spankerella: (what up bitches)
17. What song(s) always reminds you of that One Fandom Moment? (Link us to the musics!)

16. What are your favorite doomed ships? Ships that never were? Canon ships?

Oh geez. Spike/Willow. And I kind of wanted Dawn and Connor to be in the same room once to see if my Dawn/Connor shipping was justified. Definitely Draco/Ginny. I would also say Blaise/Luna. I had a Michael/Liz thing on Roswell. They were so doomed, but I love Elle/Sylar in Heroes. Those two were so messed up, though. You knew going in that it was going to end in blood and horror going in.

15. We're halfway there and it's a Friday! Just pimp something you've made and/or written. (And if you haven't written/made anything, pimp something from someone else that you love!)

I have published 3 books: My books on Amazon

These are pics of the first blanket I ever crocheted.

Crap. I forgot to post again yesterday. :(

13. Post a photo that you love.
This. I was so much more invested in their 10 minutes of screen time. I got more from it than anything else going on in the Movie-That-Shall-Not-Be-Named.

14. Write about your first fandom crush(es). (Post a picture of them if you can!)
This is easy. I'm not posting pics, though. On Buffy it was all about Angel until Spike came along. When I was a little girl it was all about Jareth in Labyrinth or Han Solo.
spankerella: (e pointe shoes)
12. Okay. Let's be real. We all have lives outside of fandom. What else are you obsessed with, or particularly good at, that most LJ'ers don't know about?

Some of you actually do know this about me. I used to be a ballerina. I was being groomed to actually be a ballet dancer. I was very good at it, but I stopped dancing because I didn't love it; I just happened to be good at it. I also didn't like pouring blood out of my shoes when I went from toe shoes to pointe. I still love to watch ballet, though. I like all dancing, but ballet is my favorite. There's such a grace to it. I have even seen the story of Dracula told in ballet. And my leg muscles are still in shape. I can kick the shit out of things. I keep them worked out.

I'm not very girlie or homemakery, but I took up crochet about a year ago, and I like it. So far, I just make blankets and scarves, but I like it.

On that note, I also cook and bake a lot. I love to bake. In fact, I made hot pink cupcakes that I took on the nano retreat this past weekend. Sugar free.
spankerella: (Thor and Mjolnir)
11. What movie are you most looking forward to this holiday season? (Link to a trailer so we can experience the impending awesomeness too!)

This is the short list.

Of course I am looking forward to The Hobbit and Catching Fire. I'm not posting those trailers. They're everywhere. Also, planning on seeing Thor sometime this week.

There is also this:

And this doesn't come out until 2014, but I'm still interested.

10. What's your favorite new Fall 2013 TV show? (If fic exists, share your favorites!)

I really dig Sleepy Hollow so far. I hope it stays good.

I'm digging the Originals, but I want someone to make out with someone already. I don't care if it's Klaus, Elijah or Marcel, but I really want it to be Elijah. I so dig him. I will accept this making out with Sophie or Hayley, but I prefer it to be Hayley. I really want to see more flashbacks or current making out with Marcel and Rebekah. Mainly because he makes me think of Blaise, and I am all about Blaise making out with blonde girls (Luna, Hannah).

ETA: I*JUST* watched this past Thursday's episode which I didn't get to watch since I was packing for my trip. All I have to say is YES! FUCKING HELL YES! And SQUEE!

I'm digging Agents of SHIELD, but I want more Hill and Coulson. They make a good workbuddy duo. Why can't she be on the team? Though I did hear a rumor she'll be on more after HIMYM is done. Good. The little poop with knives scene was my fave.

Day 9

spankerella: (sylar elle)
I missed posting yesterday. Damn.

8. Post a song that makes you want to write. (Or gets you in the mood to read All Of The Fanfic.)

I wrote the first edition of "In Shadowside" to Evanescence's Fallen. Lately I have been listening to Lori Carson's and Graeme Revell's "Fall in the Light" for 4th Corner. It just sort of depends what I need to write for what song or band I'll choose. In the chaos and death scene I just wrote where I killed a bunch of characters, I pretty much listened to Korn especially "Falling Away from Me" and there was a fight between Madison and Strephon that got "Sabotage" by the Beastie Boys.

9. Who is your favorite villain?

Draco Malfoy, but I don't know if he really counts as an all-out villain.

I guess I would have to say Angelus... because leather pants, and OMG, is that ever the worst when you have sex with your boyfriend and he goes evil. Because the hot guy who's evil is way dangerous.

Which brings me to Loki.

I also dig both Regina and Rumple as villains on OUaT.

My favorite villains as a couple are Sylar and Elle from Heroes.

I'm sure there are others. I just can't think of them.

7. Share your favorite stories from your current fandom love(s)/ship(s). Tell us why they're amazeballs if you're so inclined.

Um... I don't really read fanfic anymore, so...

But look, a Megstiel icon. I cannot express how many times I have watched this scene in Caged Heat.

"I learned that from the pizza man."
