Meme-time!

I got this from peacewish.

Respond to this post and I shall:

1. Tell you why I friended you.

2. Associate you with something.

3. Tell you something I like about you.

4. Tell you a memory I have of you.

5. Associate you with a character/pairing.

6. Ask something I've always wanted to know about you.

7. Tell you my favourite userpic of yours.

8. Tell you that you must post this in your own journal.
         Yeah, sorry, you gotta. That's the deal. That means you kind of have to be an LJ friend, or at least, we must have had something one could call an exchange. If you and I have never commented on each other's journals, it's not going to work for obvious reasons.
         However, I am willing to make exceptions on #8 for anonymous posters who have commented regularly (as in at least three times in the entire 6-year history I've been posting), and who have given me a name or some other type of moniker so I know who they are.

People who respond will get a PM from me letting them know approximately when they can expect my response. It's probably going to take me a couple of weeks at this point (Sept 30th, evening) because my friend is arriving from Japan tomorrow and my non-working hours are going to be quite busy for the next two weeks! But I truly will get back to everyone eventually!

UPDATE: This meme is now closed. Thanks to those who came to play! If there's anyone who missed it and regrets it, don't worry, there will be others.

1. Tell you why I friended you.

Well, my policy is to pretty-much return-friend anyone who shows the shocking good taste of wanting to be friends with me, so when you friended me, I friended you!

2. Associate you with something.

Incredibly exciting, energizing, creative and well-made Fake AMV's on youtube! Like this one! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_bpmUs2DDk&feature=youtu.be

3. Tell you something I like about you.

I'll tell you several things I like about you. You have a lot of common sense and you have a kind heart. Also, you really know how to appreciate the little things, like sunshine and the quiet pleasure of being at home. And you're a devoted big sis.

4. Tell you a memory I have of you.

Oh, I have a lot, just from your many posts, of course. But I'll pick one or two. I always think of that 'running giraffe' comment, which was funny, and also that time when I was complaining about Fluffy taking up too much of the bed, and you shared about your bedtime power struggles with Steffi. I used to have a German boyfriend, and his ex (whom he bitched about under the influence of alcohol) was called Steffi!

5. Associate you with a character/pairing.

I should have actually taken this one out because I know so little about other fandoms, and I don't know which other fandom pairings you're interested in. So I guess I'll have to say Dee and Ryo!

6. Ask something I've always wanted to know about you.

What are your future/current career plans?

7. Tell you my favourite userpic of yours.

Well, there weren't all that many to choose from, and even though I really like this one https://twimg0-a.akamaihd.net/profile_images/2489205515/gfp41xuiihhuoa4pm24w.jpeg , I think the one I like the best is this little one of the lady with the butterfly http://l-userpic.livejournal.com/115731960/45972803 because that's the one I see the most often. P.S. That was you in Deviant Art, right? I haven't logged on there for years but I did so today.

8. Tell you that you must post this in your own journal.

Go for it! It can be your first LJ post. And I'll come and play on your LJ.

1. Tell you why I friended you.

Well, I haven't friended you because you don't have an LJ account, but if you did, I would totally friend you! And why? So we could have fun analyzing all those little FAKE character details together!

2. Associate you with something.

This one entailed an investigation, so I googled 'pyreflysky' and found some stuff. I now associate you with... Photography! I totally want those doughnuts with the chocolate curls. Like right now because I need sugar but I'm trying not to eat any because my dress is feeling a little tight. Apparently you're also a fanfic author on something called y gallery which I found but then could not navigate satisfactorily enough to be able to find you.

3. Tell you something I like about you.

Your analytical mind! Your sense of humor. Your compassion. Your clever way with words.

4. Tell you a memory I have of you.

There are not too many yet due to the short nature of our association, but the time when you said you'd put money on Ted going through with the pegging has really stuck in my memory and makes me smile every time I think of it!

5. Associate you with a character/pairing.

That would be Drake and JJ, since you've read 'Now' a hundred times!

6. Ask something I've always wanted to know about you.

The thing I was planning to ask before I did my little google search was "Do you write?" because you're so articulate that I figured if you didn't, you ought to be encouraged to start. But I got the answer to that one, so I'll have to think of another question. Hmmm.... Which to choose? How about 'If you could BE one or the other, as well as be in a relationship with the other, which one would you want to be-- Drake or JJ?'

7. Tell you my favourite userpic of yours.

You're not on LJ, so I return to your photos, and yes we're back to that doughnut pic. :D Sorry, one track mind here. Damn it's a good thing I go to the gym every day.

8. Tell you that you must post this in your own journal.

Well, if you ever get a journal, you must post this, okay?

Re: Hit me! (Anonymous) Expand
All right, let's try this, shall we? ^__^ Hmm....*goes off to post on my own LJ account.*

1. Tell you why I friended you.

I can't remember any specific circumstances around the time when we friended each other. You first came to my LJ about four years ago, and I guess the friending must have happened around then. Like I said to Awieattie above, my policy is to friend back anyone who friends me first. Yes I know-- it's very passively 'Ryo-ish' of me, isn't it?

2. Associate you with something.

Animals! You have so many of them in your life, both inside your house and lurking around the outside of it. Also, you're the only person in either my online life or my real life who understands about 'the normal scrabbling!'

3. Tell you something I like about you.

Okay, here are a few things. 1.You have as much trouble getting rid of your old footwear as I do. 2. You were not afraid to say you liked the Twilight series. I liked it, too, but I very soon learned that the whole world is waiting to pounce with bared claws on anyone who admits to liking Twilight! 3. You're a person who loves reading and you totally understand about sinking into a book. And I've been fortunate that you have been willing to read my stories and let yourself sink into them.

4. Tell you a memory I have of you.

OMG, that would have to be the skunk! I'm still in awe of your bravery.

5. Associate you with a character/pairing.

Um, Dee and Ryo? Severus and Harry? There are probably pairings in the other books you read that I don't know about.

6. Ask something I've always wanted to know about you.

You've got a lot of education goin' on there, girl! What are you studying?

7. Tell you my favourite userpic of yours.

Your Unipeg one. I just could not get a separate link for it. I seem to be having intermittent computer problems

8. Tell you that you must post this in your own journal.

Yep! You have to do it now. If a horde of Harry Potter readers converge on you, you can blame me!

Pick me! Pick me! *waves hand*

1. Tell you why I friended you.

You first popped up on my LJ on Sept. 13, 2008. I honestly can't remember at which point we became friends. But we did and we still are, despite the fact that FAKE is no longer one of your fandoms. I've been reading your posts for years, as you went from Sebastopol, to the UK, to Berkeley and reported on your various thoughts about each place and the experiences you were having. I have never stopped being impressed with the way you express yourself and the way your mind works.

2. Associate you with something.

Moonstones! I literally cannot ever see one, anywhere, in a store or on a person, without thinking of you.

3. Tell you something I like about you.
Oh, jeez, so many things. But here are a few random ones. 1. Your attention to detail. You notice small details and cross-reference them to similar things in your own experience and in your other reading, and then come up with insights that would be amazing even in a person much older than you. 2. You like bubble wrap! You even rolled in it! *Hug!* So cute. 3. You found Emma 'soothingly witty'! I have to remember that because that is exactly how I feel about Georgette Heyer. 4. You are a gentle and peace-loving person who goes through life doing her best to be kind to others and do no harm.

4. Tell you a memory I have of you.

I guess it would be the way you fell in love with Your Hat, which reminded me of my own Special Hat love story, which ended tragically. But you didn't let yours get away. You went and bought it and then carried it joyfully across the threshold of your home. I know the two of you will have a long and fabulous relationship!

5. Associate you with a character/pairing.

Well, I'd have to say I associate you with Renly and Loras, which will probably shock you, since you don't mention them much anymore, but I never would have heard of them if not for you, and I wouldn't have had any interest in Game Of Thrones at all, if not for your mention of Renly and Loras. BTW, I still haven't read the first book in the series. It's in my bookcase waiting for a propitious time.

6. Ask something I've always wanted to know about you.

I would have been able to post this meme-response last night if I hadn't gotten stuck on this one. I've been trying to think what I could possibly ask you that I don't already know and that wouldn't be an impertinent or impolite invasion of your privacy. I already know where you live, where you go to school, a lot about your family and pets, your activities with your friends, your travel history, your favorite fandoms, your food likes and dislikes, a fair bit about your wardrobe, your future career plans... what's left to ask? Okay, how about a conditional question. I think maybe you'll get a certain amount of enjoyment out of this one!

If you absolutely had to go and live in one of the following fandom worlds for five years with no trips back home until the five years was up, which one would you choose and why? (a) France in the world and time of Temeraire (b) Numenor in LOTR, in the second age, when Elendil was a young man, or (c) Babylon 5, Season 3, Year 2260?

You would be some kind of a scribe/secretary/librarian in each world, and not in the forefront of battle or anything excessively unpleasant.

7. Tell you my favourite userpic of yours.

Ten and the kitty! http://l-userpic.livejournal.com/98743366/14009326

8. Tell you that you must post this in your own journal.

Yes, you must. Well, okay, of course I recognize I have no real power to make you comply, but I hope you will!


1. Tell you why I friended you.

I friended you because you friended me! It wasn't that long ago, so I remember it was last February. You sent me a PM asking if I minded if you friended me, which was very sweet of you. As if I'd mind! Who wouldn't want more friends, especially if they are nice people and enjoy one's stories?

2. Associate you with something.

I associate you with FAKE, because you got so fired up about the fandom that you started writing and posting your own stories.

3. Tell you something I like about you.

You're really resilient. You have a lot to deal with, but you roll with the punches and get back up. You have kept your hopes and dreams alive, and I have no doubt you'll achieve them someday. You're creative and you make things happen.

4. Tell you a memory I have of you.

Two things. Your love of horses and your desire to someday go and live in Japan. I really, really hope you can someday get a horse, or at least find a way to spend more time around them. I am also looking forward to someday reading about your future trip to Japan!

5. Associate you with a character/pairing.

Dee and Ryo, of course!

6. Ask something I've always wanted to know about you.

How did you and your husband meet, and who made the first move? I love hearing other peoples' love stories. If you don't like this question for any reason, don't be shy about saying so. I'll come up with another one.

7. Tell you my favourite userpic of yours.

This one: Big Bikky! http://l-userpic.livejournal.com/117049345/46739945 I totally love your collection of userpics. They are all fantastic.

8. Tell you that you must post this in your own journal.

Please do!

1. Tell you why I friended you.

According to my records (Thank you, Gmail search feature!), you made your first appearance on my LJ in November 2008. I'm ashamed to say I didn't get around to thanking you for your comment until February of 2009. But after consulting my user profile, I see that we never did friend each other! Oh well. The connection still goes back three years--almost four.


2. Associate you with something.

Japan! I noticed you were there right through the summer, but you didn't seem to be dying from the heat, or anything. You were further north from Tokyo, which is where I spent the most horribly hot summer of my entire life. How hot was the summer in Akita?


3. Tell you something I like about you.

(a)You are open-minded and easygoing. You listen to other people's viewpoints and try to see the merit in what they are saying, even if you don't agree. (b) You're a fellow-writer, and you understand about the burning need to write. BTW, 'Old Lady' was my favorite.


4. Tell you a memory I have of you.

The ten-word birthday fic you wrote for me! You managed to convey a lot in only ten words. The interesting thing about that challenge was the way ten little words trigger a storm of other words in the reader's brain. Oh, and images, too.


5. Associate you with a character/pairing.

It's got to be Dee/Ryo, of course!

6. Ask something I've always wanted to know about you.

Is your stepfather still the same as he was three years ago, or has he lightened up a bit now that you are older?


7. Tell you my favourite userpic of yours.

The green scythe one. For some reason I couldn't grab a separate link for it.


8. Tell you that you must post this in your own journal.

Yep! You have to do it now. Well, I can't make you of course, but if you don't do it, I'll send Ted over to entertain you with lame dirty jokes until you're ready to throttle him. (But don't throttle him-- he's a cop)

1. Tell you why I friended you.

This is the easiest question to answer because I'll friend anyone who friends me first! I know, not very proactive of me, is it? But basically, what does it mean to 'friend' someone? Lots of people have friended me but have not stayed in touch, or, in many cases, have never commented at all. To me, a true LJ friend is a person with whom I have a mutually communicative and aware relationship, even if we don't check in often or sometimes have long gaps between check-ins. Anyway! (Steps down from little speech podium) I first became aware of you four and a half years ago when you gave me a fabulous review for FFYT: A New Day on adultfanfiction.com as 'Capitalist", though you identified yourself right away as Peacewish. You told me you had friended me on LJ, and I probably friended you right back that same hour.


2. Associate you with something.

Libertarianism. I had never even heard of Libertarians until I started reading your LJ. In fact, I initially mistook you for a Republican, if you'll remember! * Hangs head in shame*


3. Tell you something I like about you.

Here's a list: 1. Your courage. 2. Your sense of humor. 3. Your sense of fairness. 4. Your clever way with words. 5. Your creativity. 6. Your work ethic.

4. Tell you a memory I have of you.

Well, I have a lot. Here's another list: (a)The card you sent me when you finally figured out postage to Canada ;D, (b) the fact that you actually Ran. For. Office. (I still can't believe I know someone who did that), (c) your willingness to forgive that little snot who stole your story, (d) the way you sided with Ryo's aversion (okay, it's a seducable aversion, but if he actually thinks about it, he starts feeling horrified) to a particular sex act in my story Heat Wave, (e) your loathing of the word 'Eurocentric", which, I'll admit, mystifies me somewhat, (f) your intriguing little whip fetish, and (g) your 365 Days of Freedom Project.

5. Associate you with a character/pairing.

Drake/JJ? Just kidding! *Ducks thrown object* Okay, let's get serious. Jazz and Soundwave

6. Ask something I've always wanted to know about you.

Have you ever considered writing a Fake fic, even a short one? And if not, why not? (Cuz it would be awesome)


7. Tell you my favourite userpic of yours.

This one http://l-userpic.livejournal.com/100971460/2301948 because it is by far the most vivid and dramatic of your userpics. Why do you only have six? LJ lets you have more than that.


8. Tell you that you must post this in your own journal.

Nah, you're released of all obligation on this one, since I got it from you in the first place.

Edited at 2012-10-22 11:29 pm (UTC)

I'm responding! :D Do you want me to answer the questions too?

<3 Neengy!

1. Tell you why I friended you.

Well, it would certainly have been because you friended me, but I'm so glad you've continued to come back and check in with me all these years, because you're just so much fun! The first Neengy-message I ever received, according to extensive research of my email and my LJ, was on May 01st, 2008, chapter 5 of StaG, in which you exclaimed that I was a tease. (I humbly apologized) After that you popped up randomly all over my journal's timeline.


2. Associate you with something.

Sugar!


3. Tell you something I like about you.

You're helpful and kind, and you enjoy your life. You love your family and you don't hold back from getting excited about things. You're really a fully alive kind of person. Also, you read A New Day all over again and left me fun little comments as you did it. I love you for that. Oh, and I really like your user name. It's my favorite out of all the user names I've heard in my life. It's so 'you'. Cute, funny, bouncy and memorable!

4. Tell you a memory I have of you.

How about nine? 1. Veggie-sadist (Yes, you!) 2. Five chapters in half an hour. (Holy Crap!) 3. "No such thing as leftover sushi." (life lessons for a brother) 4. Yummy crock pot recipe featuring pork, salsa and (of course) brown SUGARRRR! 5. Blackberry jello. (We still don't have it in Canada, or at least, not in any of the places where I shop. *Sigh*) 6. You were the unicorn in a play. Now you have something in common with Matthew Mitcham http://www.advocate.com/arts-entertainment/entertainment-news/2010/04/08/matthew-mitcham-dresses-unicorn-gaga 7. Brit-o-saurus! 8. Your helpful list of Irish drinking songs. 9. The sweet, fluffy, puzzle-ring Dee/Ryo fanfic you wrote for me for my birthday in 2011.

I could go on and on, but I really think I should stop!

5. Associate you with a character/pairing.

I think that has to be Dee/Ryo. But you also like Sirius/Remus... Or is it Remus/Sirius?

6. Ask something I've always wanted to know about you.

If you could go and live in a foreign country for a year, which one would you choose and why?


7. Tell you my favourite userpic of yours.

That adorable little sleeping white fox-critter! Love it to bits. I hope this link works. http://l-userpic.livejournal.com/99364089/12364169

8. Tell you that you must post this in your own journal.

Yes, you have to do it now. You haven't posted anything in your journal since May, you busy student, you! I will of course pounce on it the minute you post it. But, don't be in a rush if you've got midterms, etc. The Brit-o-saurus is a patient being.
