Poll time!

I am sad to be at work, so I am cheering myself up by making a super-scientific poll!

This is a fandom LJ, but there are a few people on here that I know outside of fandom. Also, I watch a lot of TV but am not necessarily part of the fandoms of those shows, so I'm curious to know what we might have in common.

Thus, a poll:

[Poll #1783662]

Babylon Five! Or so your twitter tells me!

[identity profile] ratherastory.livejournal.com 2011-10-03 01:01 am (UTC)(link)
Twitter? Really? I don't remember saying that on Twitter, but yes! B5 is awesome!

You mentioned it a while ago...I remember replying. Totally not creepily stalking you or anything.

Er. Hello! This seems like a good excuse to say Hi and introduce myself. I discovered SPN this spring, and once I got caught up with the show I went looking for fic, and found yours! And also I am working through Farscape for the first time, so I ticked that box, too. :)

EDIT: Also, you list BtVS in your interests, and that's the fandom I'm from originally.

*facepalm* Forgot about Buffy! Yes, good times, though I wasn't in fandom at the time.

Hi there!

[personal profile] snickfic 2011-10-03 01:06 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah, I wasn't in the fandom at the time, either; I discovered it way after the fact. (This is a theme with me. It's quite a novelty, being excited about SPN and watching it as it airs. *g*)

[identity profile] quickreaver.livejournal.com 2011-10-03 01:17 am (UTC)(link)
Burn Notice, maybe? You did a kick-ass SPN/Burn Notice crossover...

[identity profile] ratherastory.livejournal.com 2011-10-03 01:36 am (UTC)(link)
Oh, right! Can't believe I left that out...

[identity profile] la-mariane.livejournal.com 2011-10-03 01:19 am (UTC)(link)
We share fandoms : Hawaii 5-0 and Spn. But I don't watch the shows... or rather, I don't follow the shows, I've watched a few eps. Why? Because I liked the characters, but I enjoy fandom far more than the TV eps. Maybe the producers should hire fandom writers?

Maybe the producers should hire fandom writers?

Oh THIS times a million!

Am I the only other Dresden person here? Surely not...

[identity profile] tifaching.livejournal.com 2011-10-03 01:25 am (UTC)(link)
I've read the books, and seen the tv show, but I'm not in fandom in any way. Maybe I should check it out?

[identity profile] yasminke.livejournal.com 2011-10-03 01:26 am (UTC)(link)
I think that's how I met [livejournal.com profile] ratherastory, one SPN which led me to her Dresden stories.

[identity profile] ratherastory.livejournal.com 2011-10-03 01:30 am (UTC)(link)
I only ever wrote the one DF story, which is still unfinished until I can figure out how to get myself out of that narrative corner into which I accidentally painted myself. ;)

[identity profile] yasminke.livejournal.com 2011-10-03 01:31 am (UTC)(link)
Really, then who led me to you? Someone out there writes DF stories. I could've sworn it was you.

[identity profile] ratherastory.livejournal.com 2011-10-03 01:33 am (UTC)(link)
Nope. You and I met through [livejournal.com profile] roque_clasique when she recc'd Silent Night in her LJ. :)

[identity profile] yasminke.livejournal.com 2011-10-03 01:35 am (UTC)(link)
Aw, that's so cute... A matchmaker.

[identity profile] tifaching.livejournal.com 2011-10-03 01:43 am (UTC)(link)
I love your icon. And I can definitely check out The Dresden Files fanfic!

[identity profile] yasminke.livejournal.com 2011-10-03 01:47 am (UTC)(link)
The Discworld one? I love DEATH in both Discworld and SPN. Although I keep expecting Death in SPN to talk in all caps.

[identity profile] primrose-1.livejournal.com 2011-10-03 01:26 am (UTC)(link)
I really should watch more television because I just don't watch that many shows. On second thought, maybe that's not a bad thing.

[identity profile] harrigan.livejournal.com 2011-10-03 01:32 am (UTC)(link)
I put SPN as the only fandom we share although we watch lots of the same shows. In truth, I do read White Collar and H50 fic when SPN fic writers I like write them *g*! But I don't surf communities in those fandoms or anything like that... hence my answer.

[identity profile] tahirire.livejournal.com 2011-10-03 02:22 am (UTC)(link)
And VAMPIRE DIARIES!! Right!?!? :D :D :D

[identity profile] ratherastory.livejournal.com 2011-10-03 02:41 am (UTC)(link)
True! I only started recently, though, so I don't know if it counts yet. ;)

[identity profile] peppervl.livejournal.com 2011-10-03 02:42 am (UTC)(link)
I only read your H50 fic. I'm not good at being in multiple fandoms.

And I read the Dresden Files books and watched all the TV shows, but that wasn't in the "in common" list, so.

I keep hearing about White Collar, but I've never seen it. :/

[identity profile] 13chapters.livejournal.com 2011-10-03 02:48 am (UTC)(link)
I ticked Criminal Minds, but the truth is I haven't watched any of the most recent season. I do still love it when I catch reruns, though.

[identity profile] charis-kalos.livejournal.com 2011-10-03 02:49 am (UTC)(link)
You've got me interested in Hawaii Five-0 through your fic, damn you. To the point that I downloaded two episodes from Season One onto my iPad because in comments people seem to consider them the most 'slashy'. I don't want to get involved in watching another TV show - I don't have time!!!!!

[identity profile] le-maistre-e.livejournal.com 2011-10-03 04:08 am (UTC)(link)
*waves* I could have answered both 2 and 3 for the first question, but the more truthful answer was that we did indeed become friends through other means. I think it was a Sultry/Mellybean party where we first met, and then other parties happened. :-)

Also, did you ever watch West Wing completely or did you get too involved with other shows?

[identity profile] ratherastory.livejournal.com 2011-10-03 04:14 am (UTC)(link)
I have never watched a single episode of WW. *is shamed*

And yes, we met at a Mel/Sultry party. :)

[identity profile] le-maistre-e.livejournal.com 2011-10-03 04:23 am (UTC)(link)
Once you get your other fandoms somewhat out of your system, lemme know. We can have a Sorkin marathon. I have all of his oeuvre. OK I'm still working on Sports Night, but I have WW and Studio 60.

you are in the Dresden Files Fandom? I did not know that!

Have you written anything in it (that I obviously managed to overlook) or are you just a lurker around those parts? Any must-read recs, please? ;)

[identity profile] ratherastory.livejournal.com 2011-10-03 07:35 am (UTC)(link)
I have one unfinished fic languishing in this fandom, but mostly I lurk. No recs right off the top of my head (I haven't been hanging around the fandom much lately), but I will keep an eye out!

[identity profile] sagaluthien.livejournal.com 2011-10-03 07:25 am (UTC)(link)
I could have ticked Fringe, Doctor who and Hawaii 5 O, but as I only seen one or a few episodes of them.

[identity profile] sinka.livejournal.com 2011-10-03 08:31 am (UTC)(link)
Wow! I'm only into two fandoms at the moment (Merlin and SPN) but I'm addicted to TV series and I didn't know we had so many in common! I'm going to check out the few ones of your list I haven't seen because probably they will be awesome too.

I'm hoping that Grimm and Once Upon a Time will be added to both our lists soon. They look good! And I cross my fingers you ever decide to write anything about Merlin!

[identity profile] madebyme-x.livejournal.com 2011-10-03 10:16 am (UTC)(link)
I rarely stray outside the SPN fandom but when authors I love (like yourself) write for other tv shows that I'm familiar with, I do follow! I think I've dabbled in a few of your Hawaii 5-0 fics and I have a feeling that in the future I'll be dipping my toe in a bit more.

Also I was HUGE Farscape obsessive back in day but I've never thought about looking into fandom, I don't even know if it still has much of a following?!

I have watched and enjoyed Leverage, Merlin, Criminal Minds, and Castle, and I intend to watch and expect to enjoy Fringe, but I haven't seen an episode of any of the above for months. Bah this time suck called 'real life'.

[identity profile] sw0rdy.livejournal.com 2011-10-03 01:45 pm (UTC)(link)
We had H5-0 and White Collar in common already but 'Silent Night' is solely responsible for getting me into Supernatural so, you know, here's me hinting for more of that verse.... ;)

Hope you're enjoying your new house BTW.

[identity profile] cuddlyscorpio.livejournal.com 2011-10-03 01:50 pm (UTC)(link)
I don't know if Firefly counts as it's not on anymore, but I'm sure that you must have been a fan?

[identity profile] leoraine.livejournal.com 2011-10-03 03:17 pm (UTC)(link)
Hi! I'm kinda new at your LJ, but I discovered you through some great Leverage fics. Yay for whumped Eliot! :-) Also, the fandoms you forgot in the poll that we have in common (at least if I go by interest on your profile) are CSI NY, NCIS and Sherlock!

[identity profile] link-woman.livejournal.com 2011-10-04 03:30 am (UTC)(link)
I creep on your journal daily and read (or re-read) your wonderful fics. They're so fantastic! Thought now would be a good time to let you know. I'm usually too shy to comment on them, but I'll try to be better at it, I promise :P

[identity profile] ratherastory.livejournal.com 2011-10-04 03:32 am (UTC)(link)
Aww, thank you so much! ♥

[identity profile] vail-kagami.livejournal.com 2011-10-07 11:10 am (UTC)(link)
Reading throught the comments here, I realise I ticked the wrong box above: Another Babylon 5 fan here. I have so many fond memories of that show.
