And I have snazzy stuff! Which I am going to link and chatter about because [ profile] eponymous_rose did for hers and I am nothing if not original, oh yes. ;-)

This is long )

Fandom meme

Oct. 3rd, 2010 11:10 am
Okay - [ profile] togsos was doing this meme and I (being - like her - a "sleek fabulous lemming", lol) jumped on the bandwagon.

Rules: Tell me you want to play and I'll pick up to three of your fandoms. Then update your journal and answer the following questions:

1. What got you into this fandom in the first place?
2. Do you think you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?
3. Favorite episodes/books/movies, etc?
4. Do you participate in this fandom (fanfiction, graphics, discussions)?
5. Do you think more people should get into this fandom?

Togsos asked me about Sapphire and Steel, MFU, and Doctor Who, then added "but I would like a bonus set of the same answers on Star Trek next gen because it is a slide into fandom that is happening/evolving before my very eyes!" So, um, here's all that.

Under cuts, because you know how I ramble.

I've been poking round YouTube, and have stumbled across a lovely Sapphire & Steel fanvid I wanted to share with y'all. (And keep track of for myself, since I've never bothered to get a YouTube account.) It's sort of slightly 'shippy, in the way the show is, and very very beautiful.

For those who participated in the "Fics I Wouldn't Write Meme" - there is a list of things I hope to write from your prompts under the cut.

Right here... )

And a LOL. Piccie from [ profile] purple_bug , color-tweaky advice from illyushadarling, caption from [ profile] lolmac 's LOLHappyFace.

I've been wanting to do this caption ever since... um, "The Iowa-Scuba Affair", I think. You know, when Napoleon got locked in the bathroom with gas coming out of the showerhead? Shaving cream - terrycloth towel - rubbing alcohol - BOOM!!! Finally found the perfect pic for it, on "Sapphire and Steel", of all places. Screencap didn't exist, but I knew I'd never find a better shot, so I talked my sister into taking one for me. And here we are!

First of all, many, many thanks to [ profile] illyushadarling , who has just taught me how to tweak the color and brightness on screencaps. I was up quite late last night playing (and will probably wind up redoing quite a few of my LOLs), but it was well worth it. A hundred million hugs with chocolate awesomesauce to you, darlin' - you've been an absolute lifesaver! (Oy, that sounds sticky...)

Many thanks as well to [personal profile] eponymous_rose (moderator on A Teaspoon and an Open Mind, but that's slightly beside the point) for her awesome "Sapphire and Steel: A Beginner's Guide" picspam (warning, will mercilessly oppress dialup users, but how many of those are there anymore anyway?) without which I never would have figured out the difference between Sapphire & Steel and Remington Steele, let alone remembering to actually watch the former. It's also where I ganked this picture from. And while I'm at it, I should really thank [ profile] iko (who is an incurable cinephile and a fellow knitter of Doctor-Who-themed stuff) for pointing me to the show, via the picspam, in the first place.

Okay, enough yapping.

Today is TARDIS Day - the 46th anniversary of the day the first-ever episode of Doctor Who was broadcast. (Due to the Kennedy assassination, it received spectacularly low ratings and had to be rebroadcast the next week.) It's also the anniversary of the day I was baptized. I'm not sure what that says about my lifelong interest in weirdnesses related to Time...

In my usual tangential manner, I do not have a Who-themed post prepared for today. Instead, I have a Sapphire & Steel drabble: my first writing in the fandom. I've been quite impressed by the quality of other fans' work, and sincerely hope this offering is up to par.

I was particularly influenced by [profile] nemo_everbeing 's amazing "And This Gray Spirit" and [ profile] thisiszircon 's "The Wallflower". And of course, I've got to thank David McCallum for being such a great actor. :D

Title: Insensitive
Summary: Why was Steel partnered with Sapphire?
Notes: Gen, 100 words. Sapphire/Steel UST.
