Resistance Is Futile.  
Resistance Is Futile.
~Leave me a comment saying "Resistance is Futile."
~I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can satisfy my curiosity.
~Update your journal with the answers to the questions.

Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.
These are the answers to my questions from layne67
1. What's the story behind your LJ user-name?
Weird because in primary school I used to call myself the weirdest person (at least in my class) and proud of it. A girl a year above me in my class later claimed to be the weirdest also, and we'd have verbal war declarations from time to time. Fin because its a short nickname derived from my name.

2. What's the first ever fanfic that you ever wrote?
Hm. Well the first I started writing was actually a Bones fanfiction because that was the first fandom I found to read in...but I haven't finished writing it yet.

But if you meant the first one that I completed and posted... it'd be a shortish NCIS one-shot called 'Worthless', that focused on Tony having a bad day and showing his insecurities in regards to his opinion of himself.

3. If you could have one superhuman power, what would it be and why?
Ah...I always toss up between invisibility and superspeed. Both because I have many friends who swear they hadn't heard/seen me "sneak up" on them and I think that it would be cool to be able to do that for real.

4. One word to describe yourself.
Weird. (Kind of repeating question 1) Hm. If that's kind of a cop out on it then. Understanding.

5. What do you do the first thing in the morning when you wake up and the last thing at night before you go to bed?
Wake up: Drink something, usually water and have breakfast usually while I read the newspaper (glance at the front page, sports section and the tv guide/puzzle/comics area) Before sleep: Lately have been on computer checking email/livejournal/reading a fanfiction.

tinlizzie82asked me
1) Who is/was your hero and this can be a real or fictional person (three part question)
a) as a child: I gues my teachers, and thinking about it now, my dad. Also. Captain Planet.
b) as a teen: Hm, hard. Overall I think I'd go with some favourite authors I read many books in a series from. John Marsden, Jackie French.
c) as an adult: I still don't know how to choose 'heroes'. I guess in fiction I'd say Aslan (Lion from Chronicle's of Narnia), The Doctor (Doctor Who). Real life: Pat Rafter, Rodger Federer, Andre Agassi (*sad face* I know... Don't talk to me about it right now, maybe I'll post oneday...), John Howard (eek never do I talk politics this is scary!), Alicia Molik, Evonne Goolagong, Rolf Harris, Graham Linehan. And an old friend I lost who seems to ground me, le'ts call him S.

2) If you could have any job (regardless of your skill set etc..) what would it be? Too many to list, since I'm still so unsure of what I like. But... an actor. Not big movie star. More side roles and a constant tv role. I've also talked about being the first woman on Mars too so, an astronaut.

3) What is one thing you've never done but wish you could? So many things, but. *thinks hard* Sing a solo in front of a few hundred people. (Don't take that as me being a good singer faar from it!)

kaylashayasked me 18/01/10
1. What was the first fic you ever wrote? See above

2. What fandom do you like that you never talk about? Hm, Black Books, Ugly Betty and Doctor Who though I have kind of mentioned Doctor Who in reference to talking about the Torchwood fandom.

3. Do your real life family/friends know you write fanfiction? More friends know I read fanfiction than write it, but there are 3 friends in real life that do know I write it. Only one has read any of my stuff, though another is on my LJ f-list so they might have glanced at one or two, without telling me...

4. Where did your LJ username come from?See above

5. Chocolate or Vanilla? Vanilla. Though I love them both, and have chocolate more often than anything flavoured Vanilla.

I'm going to alter this a bit and if you want to ask me five questions in a comment, I'll edit this and add it to this post. :)</div>

I'm looking forward to read that Bones fic! A hint on what it's going to be about? :)
weird_fin: bonesweird_fin on November 24th, 2009 01:05 pm (UTC)
Heh! Really do want to finish it, but not sure when I will its kind of at the bottom of my pile... *embarrassed*

I realised half way through that a LOT of fanfictions were portraying Bones/Brennan as really really inept at social situations and/or pop culture references, and she has grown a lot through the series too. But this is meant to be based around early seasons still, so I might have to re-watch to get a feel of how out of character my writing has been, compared to the actual show. I didn't think it was too bad, I just got scared that I was going to be focusing on her in ablities rather than her intellgence and personality. I think so far it's covered her intelligence more, so it might not be total failure.

Summary? Booth and Brennan attend a series of seminars in New York, aimed at the FBI during a long weekend.

Actually, I now realise I mainly stopped becuase I was working out how long it took to get to NY, NY foods, hotels, entertainment etc. Well, I'll try to get on it shortly. :) Even if it turns out bad, because then at least I'll have my basis of my first fanfiction idea to compare to later works.

tinlizzie82tinlizzie82 on November 24th, 2009 05:26 pm (UTC)
1) It's an old high school nickname that came about when a confused freshman somehow got the idea my name was Liz and one of my friends teased her by calling me Tinlizzie until she asked why they called me that if my name wasn't Liz and the answer was that if you take the lizz out you get my real last name (phonetically at least). My real name is actually Heather.

2)Horses, dogs, birds (I used to have a parrot), cats and I've always wanted a hedgehog ;-)

3)a) Sabrina from Charlie's Angels (ugh, I know but I was like 10)
3)b)Melanie Smith Taylor (rider) then I found out she's actually kind of a bitch.
3)c)Tina Fey - I would kill to be that funny.

4)England to visit all the historic sites I read about (I'm a fan of english history)

5)Tiramisu rocks!!!!

That better include that Ziva-isque head tilt. ;)

Well, that's the ideaaa so then others can see and/or get them to ask you questions of them! But its really up to you, you can just post them here in a reply to a comment if you'd prefer. :)
borg_princessborg_princess on May 12th, 2010 01:39 am (UTC)
Resistance is futile! :P

And hee, how timely, just when I was wondering about the story behind your username!

Let me guess, Fin stands for...Finnula? *g* J/k. I think that's the name of the protagonist from Meg Cabot's Ransom My Heart.

Your hero is Captain Planet? I used to love that show when I was a kid! 'Captain Planet, he's our hero, gonna take pollution down to zero...' K-Rudd should enlist him for his campaign, lol, make people trust him again.
weird_fin: Black books: lolly bookweird_fin on May 19th, 2010 03:55 pm (UTC)
Its actually from November last year, but i keep the link at my links bar list. So I people can go here if they want. And it covers the name thing so...

Captain Planet was awesome. I don't think he could help Rudd though. :P

1. Favourite animal?
2. Name a dessert that you DON'T like
3. How did you get into fanfiction reading?
4. Name a favourite author from the past two years that's you've read from
5. If you could meet anyone 'famous' that has been dead for over 3 years who would it be and why?
