Hi, fandom! I know if you're anything like me, you don't post for a few years and then write a multi-fandom opinion piece about every fic you've read in the past 13 years.

I'm going to talk about my kinks, squicks, tropes, and fic recs in ALL of my many few fandoms since 2004.

Questions to be posed and perhaps answered include:
  • Why does mpreg only work for me in the Harry Potter verse?
  • Why does A/B/O leave me cold? (Actually we can answer that right here: drooling sphincter).
  • Why do crossovers only work for me if you cross a genre fandom with Queer as Folk? Everyone likes the thumpa-thumpa?
  • What is it about me that loves? Adores? Obsesses?
  • Will I ever get tired of J2 AU fic (that doesn't involve drooling sphincters)?
  • Will I be the person who reads every grammatically correct Harry Potter fic ever written (and some of the wonky syntax ones)? Is there a Guinness category for this? How would I prove it?
  • Why do epithets annoy the fuck out of me, but pet names don't? Ask the former Army doctor for me, love.


  • Please join me, if you would, and we'll explore this (and my obsession with kid!fic!) as we scroll through time, space, wizarding space, and navel gazing.

    Oh, Brits in Teen Wolf fandom, you're killing me with your "proper" and "whilst" and "meant" and "shall." I know you watch scads of American TV, surely you've noticed that we don't talk like that? You rarely boggled me this much with SPN fic (other than that one time that Jared and Jensen ate chicken fried steak and enchiladas together, but non-Texan-Americans are often clueless about the Lone Star state, so I gave you a pass). Let me put it this way, by the time you write Stiles or Derek saying, "I'm meant to be back at uni in a fortnight, so shall I give you a proper kiss whilst we ring for a curry?" we're no longer in California.

    Although I did laugh for 15 minutes in the midst of a HS AU while Stiles appreciated the fact that his high school cafeteria did a decent curry. Wow, that Michelle Obama really DID spruce up the fish sticks and Jell-O! Well, it was a welcome break from curly fries and coffee shops, I'll say that for it.

    1) I started watching Teen Wolf. I'm not really sure why. Actually, I think it was because Andrea, Brandi and CJ were and I wanted to have something to talk to them about, haha.

    2) It doesn't suck, as I assumed it would. I mean, I'd like characterization and metaphor, but I'll settle for lack of (even casual) homophobia, added shirtlessness and "WTF?!" (in a good way) reactions to every episode.

    3) CJ wants me to write fic for this show. This is most likely NOT going to happen. One, because I need something to either parody or meta in order to write, and this show already does one and doesn't really lend to the other. Two, I could never write Derek/Stiles for the same reason I rarely wrote Angel: I can't write characters who aren't composed entirely of dialogue. If I wrote fic for this show, it would probably be Scott/Jackson/Allison, haha!

    4) I loved watching BtVS (duh) because, while it was a high school show created when I was in my late 20s, David and James and Charisma were all older than I, and Nicky and Aly are close to my age. The mom on Teen Wolf is two years younger than I am. Ouch.

    5) I'm up to the 4th episode of Season 2 (yes, I paid for Hulu Plus to watch Season 2) and wow, did I not see some of this stuff coming.

    6) Tigh!

    7) Jonah starts ballet next Wednesday (he'll have it once a week for an hour while he's four). He's going to the school that Ballet Oklahoma draws from, so here's hoping he had talent and endurance. I get to go buy wee black tights and dance shoes today! (He chose ballet over gymnastics. Whatever -- exercise is exercise. And ballet is actually $5 cheaper a month, at least while he's four.)

    8) I really want to talk Teen Wolf with someone who wants to talk about Teen Wolf. Call me. Or email me at crazydiamondsue@gmail.com if you've lost my number. I don't know why I want to talk about it. I just do. And Vinnie gives me an indulgent "FML" when I try to talk about it; one, because she has no interest and two because I'm interrupting her mainlining of Big Bang Theory.
