heidi: (fandom)
The one who seduced you, screwed you over, broke your heart in a million pieces, and laughed about it.
Heroes. I stuck with the damned thing until the very freaking end, and I am not unhappy that I did because my GOD the WALL-verse for Gabriel and Peter was exactly the arc they needed (well, no, the arc they needed would've been keeping them as brothers-and-possibly-twins but that lasted what, two episodes?) but there were episodes of the show that were so bad and it had such potential and the showrunners fucked it up. I will never regret anything I read or wrote or vidded, or my set visit of amazingness, but when I re-watch the Pilot or random S1 episodes, which I still do, it makes me headdesk.

The old flame you don't see very often any more but whom you still really enjoy getting together with for a few drinks and maybe a pleasant nostalgic romp.
Leverage. I'm almost the entire season behind as it aired while I was traveling, but I still read fic and am pretty well spoiled for the season and I am fine with that, and looking forward to a wonderful catch up marathon on planes in September.

The mysterious dark one whom you used to sit up with talking until 3 AM at weird coffee houses and with whom you were quite smitten until you realized s/he really was fucking crazy: Torchwood. I still haven't watched all of CoE, and while I'll happily read a crossover with something else I love, and I may very well watch all of Miracle Day at some point, I just don't trust the show not to hit one of my major squick points until it's been fully vetted to the end of the season.

The one you spent a whole weekend in bed with and who drank up all your liquor and whom you'd still really like to get with again, although you're relieved s/he doesn't actually live in town: I've just spent about three days reading massive amounts of movie!Thor fic (awww, Loki!) and I may not be done yet. Recs? And yes, I have a vidplot for when the dvd comes out, and may actually go see the Avengers movie just in hopes of Loki vs Tony interaction, flail.

The steady:
Supernatural. If it hasn't lost me yet, I don't think it's going to. To think, when I started watching back in January of 2007, nobody was sure it was going to make it through the summer! And Heroes was the big thing back then! Winchesters, I am with you til the end of the road, which I still hope will be an American Gods thing (as per [livejournal.com profile] lyra_wing) but I doubt that more and more with each episode, and I'm okay with that.

The alluring stranger whom you've flirted with at parties but have never gotten really serious with: While Collar. I read it often, especially things that xover with Chuck or Leverage, but I've never been tempted to write anything, and I haven't vidded to it yet. Back in June I was wondering if the end of S2 might lead to me doing a Neal-centric vid to Little Lion Man and I am pleased to say that at this point, I don't think it works as well as I thought it might back then. But, maybe someday.

The one you hang out with and have vague fantasies about maybe having a thing with, but ultimately you're just good buddies: Current Doctor Who. I respect and appreciate Matt, Karen and Arthur, as well as Alex and Mark and the storylines but it's just not Tennant and Tate. I'm not ruling it out forever, but I'm not there right now.

The one your friends keep introducing you to and who seems like a hell of a cool person except it's never really gone anywhere: Inception. I'm so happy you're all so happy, and the film was adorable but again, I'm not there.

The one who's slept with all your friends, and you keep looking at them and thinking, "How the hell did they land all these cool people?" Still the various Stargate shows. I think they were hitting it big while I was very busy with Harry Potter things, and having babies, so I've never seen a single episode despite the fact that I loved the movie back a million years ago. I would probably like it if I ever took the time for it, but I'm just not interested in spending the time. Um, sorry?

The one who gave you the best damned summer of your life and against whom you measure all other potential partners:
Harry Potter, always and forever, my introduction to fanfic, fanart, fanvids, fanfilms, filking and massive amounts of creativity and positive social change and good things. Also, a lot of crazy, but there's crazy lurking in so many random places on the Internet, we all just need to work around it. And ship Barty Jr/Regulus Black. No, btw, am not in Pottermore yet - still waiting on my email - but I am curious where I'll get sorted and what wand I'll get. I'm mostly unspoiled for the content, too. I really want to discover this on my own, with my son.

The one you recently met at a party and would like to get to know better: Oh, XMFC, you are everywhere on my flist, and I loved the film and I have preordered my blu-ray for the missing scenes and I cannot wait for a sequel set in the time of angst that was the late 60s and 70s.


The old flame that you wouldn't totally object to hooking up with again for a one night romp if only they'd clean up a bit: Ha, no clue. I was mono-fandom-ous from 1999 through 2006, so I don't have anything other than HP from that time period at all.

Your hot new flame: Hunger Games! I'm supposed to talk about fanfic/fanart for YA novels/films at Dragon*Con next week, so I'm, um, reading for research. I think I've read every Finnick-centric fic already though?

The one who stole your significant other: Bandom. :P Ah, fandommigration, you happen and then many migrate again a few months later, don't they?

heidi: (Livejournal)
1. Now I'm back home and at a desktop computer, I can start fixing my alternate Journal options. When I registered or JF back in 2004 there was no "heidi" so I got that there, and ETA I just managed to get back onto the heidi journal on GJ. Wheee.

Friend me on JournalFen (I'm Heidi there).

Friend me on GreatestJournal (I'm heidi there, too! I just figured out how to get back into it, so I'll be using that instead of the 8heidi8 one! Wheee!). I know a bunch of you have friended heidi8 on GJ. She isn't me.

My plan is to back up my LJ onto GJ and crosspost onto GJ, and use both GJ and JF as reading lists. I'd rather not overload JF's servers, so I'm not going to upload all sixish years of posts there, but I will start posting fandomy things on JF, and posting both fandomy and RL stuff on GJ, going forward. However, since I regularly post onto LJ via email (from my sidekick) and since I don;'t seem to be able to post by email to GJ or JF (and I'd be happy to get a paid account at either or both if such an option was offered) the postings there won't necessarily be as timely as they are on LJ - I'll try to make sure I crosspost within 24 hours, though.

Also, did any of you set up the InsaneJournal account for me yesterday? Because someone registered heidi8 there yesterday and it isn't me - I went and grabbed 8heidi8 as a justincase there, but I would love to have the heidi8 one there, too.


2. So I can friend those of you who've relocated...

[Poll #1034377]


3. I've been asked to help take on the Vendor Room Coordination role at Portus in Texas next summer for the time being (although they are still looking for a someone to fill the role permanently, as I am 100% sure I won't be able to attend the entire event (because of multiple family weddings & bat mitzvahs next summer) and this is a job someone needs to be on-site for). So if there's something you particularly want to see in the Vendor Room, let me know! We've already got some sensational ideas on the table for, er, the tables!

4. I also learned this morning that the reason there were too few lunches at the Saturday keynote at Prophecy was because someone either stole some 50 stickers, or possibly because someone scanned the sticker and made extra copies. We're working with hotel security to see if it was the former, but we have strong intelligence that it was the latter and either way, it was theft from the con of pushing two thousand dollars, and theft of a good time from the other attendees, and it's a horrible way to treat your fellow fans.

And [livejournal.com profile] fearsclave let me know about prophecy in the Toronto Star and MacLeans!

More later this week re SpellCast's Podcast Plays in the show's second season, as well as an update on FictionAlley Park's setup (I HOPE!).

And for now...
5. [livejournal.com profile] cutecoati has "acquired" some emails sent among the cast of the Harry Potter films sent while they were reading DH. Real Person Fic. Very funny and worth reading even if you don't normally read fanfic.
