fandom meme

snagged from verizonhorizon and jennytork

First TV show I had self-insertion fantasies about:
The Monkees. Because I grew up in the landlocked Midwest, in a large, musically-challenged, extended family full of women, as the oldest of three sisters. And I wanted live on the beach. And have a cool car. And be someone's kid sister to their older brother, ya' know, because there supposedly would be less responsibility.  Oh, and there was music. Sweet, sweet music.

First fandom in which I interacted (online and in person) with other fans:
Star Trek (TOS & TNG). It was all in person. I had friends that would come to my house and we would watch TNG every single week and never miss an episode. And then they would stay and talk about it afterwards. And we would drive an hour and a half to see the premier of a new TOS movie because it wouldn't come to our small town for a couple of weeks after the release date.

One of my good friends. her mother was a BtVS an, and we would watch and discuss it as well.

I never actually interacted with anyone online in fandom until Harry Potter and Supernatural, and even then, I was a lurker for a long time. I think  I mostly went online, because I didn't know anyone in real life in those fandoms.

Pairing in the first slash fanfiction I read:
Gabriel/Sam and Dean/Cas. It was a post-apocalyptic type fic, and I am a sucker for those. The pairing/slash component wasn't a factor for me at all. I was drawn in by storyline/setting.

First RPS/RPF I read:
In general, I don't read RPF, but when I was growing up,  our local library had a copy of one Star Trek  (TOS) fanzine on hand. In it,there was one story about how part of the crew had ended up on the set of of Star Trek due to a transporter mishap a la "Mirror, Mirror". It was very much like the "The French Mistake" from SPN, and I loved it. Typically, it is only those types of RPFs that I read.

First fanfiction I read that made me think, 'YES, this is exactly the kind of fanfiction I'd like to write...':
My answer is very similar to jennytork's. While technically not fanfiction, I loved and still own Barbara Hambly's Star Trek novel Ishmael a crossover with the TV series Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and saw cameos from various sci-fi and Westerns characters of the time. I love crossovers, or even just shout-outs.

Pairing in the first fanfiction I wrote:
I tried my hand at Chekov/Irina (their back story) when I was younger, but I didn't like the results. I should say this is the first pairing I tired, but not necessarily the first fanfiction I tried.

First OTP:
I really didn't have one.I still don't.Pairings are often meh...for me

First fannish friend I met in person:
I haven't met any fannish people in person (yet)

First character I formally roleplayed:
I've never roleplayed.

ooooh, what a great meme! How do you find such great memes. I v.tempted to post this myself :)

I think ST got a lot of folks into fanfiction - its the progenitor of fanfic afterall :)

I don't look for the memes. They just show up on my flist. I can't take credit for them. Someone else out there is coming up with them, and somehow, they are getting circulated on my flist.

And I will be an enabler...I say go for it!

LOVE your crossover ref icon!!

Sure, sure, but you obviously have a great flist then ;)

ooooo.... *indecision*
Feb. 26th, 2012 06:40 pm (UTC)
well, duh...your on my flist! *g*

I can't remember where I got the icon, but I did credit. And it is one of the three people on my icon rec post at spn_bigpretzel. I think it was morgentau

Ooooooo... :)

On a completely OFTB note - did something happen that you are now Auntmo9 and not Auntmo, anymore?
Feb. 26th, 2012 07:02 pm (UTC)
Huh? I think on my journal page, I just titled it Aunt Mo's Musings, but my username should still be auntmo9. Though in my own still, even I find it difficult to see the 9 at the end sometimes.
Feb. 26th, 2012 07:15 pm (UTC)
Hmmmmm.... interesting :)

usually I could type auntmo - as is and it'd pick up you as a lj user. And now I have to include the 9, or it doesn't.
Feb. 26th, 2012 07:20 pm (UTC)
That is weird. Unless there is someone else out there that is auntmo and has a number attached to it?

I've been resisting these meme, or some similar one, for days. LOL! *meep* But it's so interesting to see people's responses.

I loved Barbara Hambly's 'Ladies of Madrigyn' (which I'm actually kind of afraid to re-read).

Also, who doesn't love a good crossover? :D

See, I like doing these memes, because I find it is an easy way to tell people about myself when I am too lazy to come up with an "about me" post for my new friends. And some of my older friends like them, too. *g*

I have that book! I giggled when they did 'The French Mistake' and wondered if one of the writers had read that story.

Star Trek has done so much not only for science fiction, but for fandom!

Yep. It's because of the first Star Trek fan-run con that Creation Entertainment got it's start. It's the reason we can see the J2 at con today. Star Trek fans may or may not have started 'zines, but there's no arguing they made them popular--including slash.
