Taken from several people:

First ten comments, one per person: Name one of my fics and I will do a commentary on it, "DVD" style, or a "meta" on that fic if doing it DVD style is too cumbersome. If you post this to your journal, revise as you wish (number of comments, style of commentary, etc.).
laurus_nobilis: (NBC - The scientific method)
1. List ten characters or pairings or SOMETHING with fandoms.
2. Have your friends choose one of them.
3. They may then request 5 fanons, a drabble, or a 5 Times type list.


Too lazy to list characters, just ask away! I'll let you know if I don't know them well (for those fandoms with huuuuuge casts).

- Transformers (G1, TFA, Prime, I can try for Beast Wars)
- Doctor Who (New and quite a bit of Classic, just ask)
- Avatar: the Last Airbender
- Fullmetal Alchemist (manga/Brotherhood)
- Ouran High School Host Club
- BBC Merlin
- The Dresden Files (up to Proven Guilty)
- Harry Potter
- Ace Attorney (Apollo Justice + Rise from the Ashes)
- Mansión-verse
- AU OF DOOM dignity who needs that!

And as usual, ridiculous crossovers are encouraged o/
laurus_nobilis: (Crossover time!)
From [livejournal.com profile] kalligeneia:

Give me TWO fandoms; I'll tell you about their crossover OTP.
laurus_nobilis: (Rainy day)
Comment with any ship (romantic or platonic or maybe even non-existent!) from a fandom that you know I have some knowledge about, and I will rant about aforementioned ship. This may be incoherent gushing or exclamations of disgust, depending on your ship of choice.
laurus_nobilis: (Dragon)
Give me the name of a character (or characters) and I will tell you:

* How I FEEEEEL about this character
* All the people I ship romantically with this character
* My non-romantic OTP for this character (BFFs, mentors, etc)
* My unpopular opinion about this character
* One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon.

Name a pairing for any fandom and I'll tl;dr about them in your direction.

This week: Who are your five favourite female characters of colour?

I'm really, really bad at picking favourites, so I'll just leave it at "five awesome female characters of colour, in no particular order" instead. And even so it was hard to pick. I mean, I could mention more than five from A:tLA alone. :P But I tried to go for different fandoms.

Pics! )

Today's [livejournal.com profile] fannish5: Name the five best uses of Shakespeare’s work (faithful adaptations, plots inspired by his work, references to one of his plays/sonnets).

I don't know if they're THE BEST, but they're my favourite:

1. The 2004 adaptation of The Merchant of Venice. You know, the one with Al Pacino and Jeremy Irons (♥) and stuff.

2. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead. So awesome *____*

3. Terry Pratchett's Wyrd Sisters, which is kinda sorta loosely based on Macbeth.

4. The Lion King. I was too young when I first saw it to realize that it was Hamlet with lions, though. :P

5. DINOBOT. Just... Dinobot.

Bonus: Tolkien said he wrote the March of the Ents because he was disappointed with Macbeth's explanation for the "woods going to the castle" thing, so I say IT TOTALLY COUNTS.


(So many other shiny things to pick from, though! I really wanted to include The Shakespeare Code, because it's one of favourite Martha episodes, but... Dinobot won. :P)

From [livejournal.com profile] stunt_muppet:

Give me a topic, preferably a fannish topic that I would be likely to have something to say about, and I will attempt to write you a few paragraphs of meta on what I think about the subject.

Wheeljack and Ratchet
Best '90s cartoon
Remakes of stuff from the '80s
Smart characters who act like dorks
Scientists and how they are treated in fandom
Most exciting thing about the Hobbit movie
Group adopted families
laurus_nobilis: (Drossie godmodes my dreams)
From [livejournal.com profile] allira_dream:

Pick a character I write, and I will give you the top five ideas or concepts or factoids I keep in mind while writing that character that I believe are essential to depicting him or her accurately. This includes original characters and characters about whom I write fanfic.


ETA: From everyone and their grandma:

Comment with a pairing and I'll tell you:

1. When I started shipping them
2. What I think their challenge is
3. What makes me happy about them
4. What makes me sad about them
5. What moment I wish had never happened
6. Who I'd be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other
7. My happily ever after for them
laurus_nobilis: (♥)
List ten quotes from ten of your OTPs. Your flist's job is to guess which of your OTPs said the quotes and from what movie/television show/book/etc. they are from.

Trying to find that fine line between 'too hard' and 'too obvious' )
laurus_nobilis: (Kyouya Reed)
1. Happy Holidays! It's not New Year yet so I'm on time. :P

2. I haven't watched the Doctor Who Christmas special or the season 6 trailer yet, and I don't know when I'll be able to. Please don't spoil!

3. I'm up to chapter 6 of Dead Beat and SO MUCH HAS HAPPENED ALREADY OMG.

4. That fandom-year-in-review meme that's going around:
