Happy Birthday dimlondeielLaura!!!

I have like a million and one things to do that didn't get done last night because it's true what Buffy said. Beer bad. So I'm working on 'em now and should be back on top of things soon. And I'm growing to hate ImageReady with a fiery passion.

Meme! fresleyforever interviewed me, if you would like me to interview you just gimme a shout here and I'll ask you five questions. (Once my head stops bursting... (hungover, I don't deserve sympathy)).

1:What sparked your interest in writing fic?

oooo this is actually a tough one! (see the answer to #2 for one of the reasons!) I guess I sat back and wondered how the characters got to be who and where they were, or what they did when the cameras were switched off. I started off writing missing scenes and then it kinda escalated I guess. Plus, I've always wanted to write, even when I was a little kid, and fanfic gave me the opportunity to play with words and characters which had an established audience. Playing in someone else's sandbox eases the way a little I think.

2:Your very first fandom ever?

See, this is going to sound really odd. When I was still in primary school I wrote a book. Not a 'real' book or anything, but I wrote it and sewed the pages together and called it my book. It was a Nancy Drew story. I didn't actually read a lot of Nancy Drew books because she was far too girly and the Hardy Boys got to go to places like Greenland, but my very first piece of fanfiction was a Nancy Drew story. Does that count as a fandom?

The first show I got actively involved in though, well that would be The X Files. I based my Honours Dissertation on Derridean and post-feminist communication in the show and watched the DDEB and GATB interaction kinda fanatically. Then the show got a little… not good, and I moved onto Star Wars: EU. Then Buffy, then… the rest is history!

3:What makes you squee the most?

When really good things happen, or when I get an opportunity I didn't otherwise think I would get. Simple things make my day. Being considered worthy of nomination for something I've worked hard on, multiple comments on something I love, someone I admire noticing me. I'm easily pleased. Of course, I could just explode with the squee overload at the Asylum con!

4:Who would you switch places with for a day?

This is going to sound so one-track minded, but right at this moment I would trade places with someone like Louisa Phung. She's a trainee Assistant Director on Supernatural. I've been on a couple of productions as a runner back in the day and loved every single moment of it, as a trainee AD I would get to learn from people like Kim Manners and David Nutter and Kripke. And of course I'd get to be around the boys…

5:Favourite flavour of icecream?

Toss up between two - Ben & Jerry's New York Super Fudge Chunk or Green & Black's Chocolate & Orange.

Yeah, I have slightly expensive ice cream tastes…

:) chances are they'll have their arm around your shoulder anyway so you may as well go the whole hog...

If I can ask Chris Kane for a hug every time I meet him, then you can do this. And if you don't, then I'll just have to go before you and tell them you want a hug but don't want to ask. (And I would do it, I'm better at asking for things for others than for me!)

I think I didn't ask for hugs at NFA because it was my first big convention and I was really nervous!

No,I really do want to ask-I have to,to prove that I've got nerve!

Is your phone still acting up btw? I need to get ready for work soon and I'd love to text you!

Yay! Asking for hugs sounds like a plan! (Or, if you're acrazywench you could ask Danny Strong if you can rub his tummy... (I kid you not!)

My phone is kinda working, although it's switched off right now 'cause I'm at work, but it takes me like an hour to send a message because it keeps glitching out on me. Haven't tried to send one this week at all though so it might work - try it and if you don't hear back from me then it's probably because I've thrown it across the room in frustration!

Your phone is the spawn of the yellow eyed demon!

LOL@Danny Strong!

Yes I shall resolve and ask for hugs! I really want a double photoshoot though!

And JDM if possible!

God yes. Double photoshoot, singles of each of 'em and if JDM was to happen to be there I think I would drop dead on the spot!
