Forty Fan Facts

Here’s Jintian’s 40 fannish facts meme, by way of Lori, Seema and Sara. I was too lazy to do it myself, so they helped. My corrections are in brackets.

  1. (Seema) Fic must have weddings in it.
  2. (Seema & Lori) I don’t need a biology lesson [about] slots and tabs.
  3. (Lori) Everyone who sent feedback on story X, send me a copy, cause I never saw it!
  4. (Seema) I write my fic on a Mac! You should too!
  5. (Lori) You haven’t lived until you get jossed.
  6. (Lori) I think Lori’s a world-class author who should be writing publishable fiction and sending it to agents.
  7. (Seema) I wrote an amazing fic called ‘The Museum.’ In general, I win lots of awards [just like Seema].
  8. (Seema) I started a mailing list when I should have been writing fic.
  9. (Lori) Everyone should read Seema’s fic, so cruise over to her website.
  10. (Sara) My filk makes Sara laugh far too much.
  11. (Seema) I’m insufficiently reluctant. Go me!
  12. (Lori) Colony is vastly underrated by all and sundry. Probably because it’s not read often enough [or wasn’t edited enough].
  13. (Lori) My filk should win awards. Lori said so.
  14. (Seema) Yellow rocks my cabash.
  15. (Seema) I don’t do memes over 5 items so I conscripted my minions, Seema, Sara and Lori, to write this list for me.
  16. (Lori) Picard/Janeway is one of my favorite pairings, if I liked pairing fic.
  17. (Seema) I think there are aliens voting in fanfic contests. It’s the only explanation for the results.
  18. (Lori) Fandom is like high school [only worse].
  19. (Seema) I don’t find Icheb attractive.
  20. (Seema) There is a Janeway/Picard fandom but there is no such thing as a [Doc]/Seven fandom.
  21. (Lori) C/7 is the one true pairing, because it’s canon. Get Over It.
  22. (Sara) Canon is queen here at Jemima’s Trek.
  23. (Lori) Bitter Old Fan Queens rule.
  24. (Seema) I like Seven. I [don’t] own a couple of catsuits just like hers.
  25. (Seema) My fanfic is a gift.
  26. (Lori) Badfic. Fandom’s car accident. Can’t quit rubbernecking.
  27. (Seema) I’m scared of Seema.
  28. (Seema) I got conscripted into the Blog Wars through no fault of mine. I was an innocent bystander, and bang! I got attacked by William James.
  29. (Seema) Stylesheets rule.
  30. (Lori) The few, the proud, the filkers….
  31. (Seema) I love TOS. Really.
  32. (Seema) I prefer my friends to be coherent and to have a minimal ability to spell and use punctuation properly.
  33. (Lori) When you’re museless and wandering, start a fan list without a fandom, and anything can happen.
  34. (Seema & Lori) Just say no to your fic taxes. No New Fic Taxes!
  35. (Seema) I’m a BNF but I refuse to admit it.
  36. (Lori) Ask not what ASC can do for you, but what you can be insufficiently reluctant to do for ASC!
  37. (Seema) Just say no to LJ.
  38. (Seema) Just say no to Virtual Seasons.
  39. (Lori) Feedback. The final frontier…to seek out readers, to elicit their reactions… to have my story noticed where none have noticed before! (cue music)
  40. (Lori) I’m writing a babyfic. Everyone is pregnant. Everyone who can be, anyway — I won’t stoop to mpreg, thankyouverymuch.

    Beware when you put words in Jemima’s mouth - she just might say them. :P
