Courtesy of a co-worker: my cell phone is not set on vibrate. It is set on stun. :D

That is all.
Okay, you know those memes where you pick ten characters and then answer questions phrased like "If 2 and 4 went on a road trip together, what would happen?" (Ooh, that's rather a good one.)

I know I'm not the only Whonatic who automatically reads that as "If the Second Doctor and the Fourth Doctor went on a road trip...", so - having recently stumbled across such a meme - I couldn't resist.

Warning: answers are (of course) pretty darn cracked-out, and also contain more slightly snarky fanon references than my usual.

Also long. )

1. Take five books off your bookshelf
2. Book #1 -- first sentence
3. Book #2 -- last sentence on page fifty
4. Book #3 -- second sentence on page one hundred
5. Book #4 -- next to the last sentence on page one hundred fifty
6. Book #5 -- final sentence of the book
7. Make the five sentences into a paragraph

Book #1: Men, Ships and the Sea by Alan Villiers and the National Geographic Society
Book #2: A Treasury of the Familiar edited by Ralph L. Woods
Book #3: The Fellowship of the Ring by JRR Tolkien
Book #4: The Sinister Six Combo by Adam-Troy Castro
Book #5: Davy Crockett by Constance Rourke

The stout ketch took the seas bravely, a bone in her teeth, as we headed down the historic sea road between England and France. Till a' the seas gang dry, my dear, and the rocks melt wi' the sun, I will luve thee still, my dear, while the sands o' life shall run. They at once gave up any idea of going back. Gravity took over. The sun walked up in the morning and down at night, though the days were bitter cold and the snow lay deep.

(Okay, that made no sense whatsoever... but I kinda like it anyway.)
Ganked from [ profile] stunt_muppet, because it looks incredibly fun.

Name a character and I'll tell you three (or more) facts about them from my own personal pseudocanon.

This time, fandoms are MacGyver, SG-1, Doctor Who (any TV character), MFU, S&S, NCIS, X-Men, Star Wars, and anything else I've mentioned reading/watching. I'll even throw in LOTR. Because I have pseudocanon in some form for everything.
How it's supposed to work:
A. List seven habits/quirks/facts about yourself.
B. Tag seven people to do the same.
C. Do not tag the person who tagged you or say that you tag "whoever wants to do it."

Now, I don't think I have seven people on my flist that I know well enough to say "hey, you randomly have to do this meme because [ profile] lothithil tagged me." So... yeah. I like hearing random things about people, though... hint hint? ;-)

#1: I collect paper dolls. Ethnic and historical-themed, mostly - I have over 100 now, ranging from reproductions of antique paper dolls, to "American Family of the Pilgrim Era", to the entire cast of "The Mikado" complete with background sets. (I, er, may have turned a large cardboard box into a puppet theater apropos of that last one... never quite got everything to work, though.)

#2: I love to come up with cracky fan theories about quantum mechanics, cryptozoology, and other weird things like that. Electromagnetic vortex theory as relating to crop circles and the Bermuda Triangle (sometimes involving hyperspace bypasses, Puck, and/or the great unconscious); the Marie Celeste (world's most famous disaster of shoddy workmanship); the disasters referenced in the Mayan calendar; and a possible correlation between the original locations of the seven Palantiri and the days of the week in the Elvish calendar. (I'm not kidding.)

#3: I have been known to wear a ruffled shirt, a leather jacket, a Doctor Who Scarf and Chucks all at the same time. As I also have a fairly authentic Season-2-MacGyver mullet, and usually wear a black cowboy hat, the overall effect is... interesting.

#4: I still have portions of my first story, which I started (but never finished) at the age of five. It is mainly notable for focusing entirely on character interaction with an utter lack of plot. Sound familiar? ;-)

#5: I suspect the Bermuda Triangle of being a gateway to the Straight Road (how ships get from the Grey Havens to Valinor).

#6: There is a skull named GK after GK Chesterton, wearing wraparound shades and a blue bandanna, on my bookshelf, and a three-foot-tall skeleton named Indiana Bones, wearing the aviator goggles off my sister's Snoopy plushie, hanging on my wall. (Other features of my room include a stuffed sheep named Lamby which I sleep with, a pink baby blanket with my initials on it, and an excess of spelling-bee trophies being used as bookends.)

#7: I have a sister who hates chocolate. She's not allergic - she just doesn't like it.
Ganked from [ profile] clocketpatch ...

Describe three fics you think I will never, ever, ever write. In return (and if inspired), I will attempt to write a snippet of one of them.

For the record: I've published fic for MacGyver, Stargate SG-1, Marvel Comics, Doctor Who, Man from UNCLE, Sapphire & Steel, and Star Trek: TOS. I'm also willing to try Star Wars (old trilogy, plus all novels set Han Solo at Stars' End through Allegiance), Gilligan's Island, and DC Comics.

I will attempt to write at least 100 words on at least one of each set of three prompts received, but there's no way I guarantee readability let alone quality... ;-)
