A poll to satisfy my curiosity.

[Poll #1946701]

Hey, all. Due to various LJ instabilities, new features I don't care for, etc, I think I'm going to be slowly moving my commenting/interaction over to DW as much as I can. This means a few things:

1. If you're happy with DW and feel comfortable commenting over there, then I'd like to ask that you do that. (Since I'll continue to crosspost, there will always be a link from the LJ entry to the DW entry.) If you don't like DW / don't have an account / don't want to bother signing in over there, feel free to keep hanging out here. I don't mind. :)

2. If I have you friended here but am not subscribed to you over on DW, please, drop a comment here (or in the poll below) so I can do so!

3. I'd like to make DW my "main" reading journal. However, if you'd rather I talked to you on LJ instead of DW, that's fine; I just need to know. Hence, a poll:

This is for Strictly Scientific Purposes, only some of which are selfish. I've added a bunch of new folks to the flist recently and also been slowly moving fandoms, and I don't have a great sense of what all you folks like to read.

Hey, all. Last year around this time we had the Crackficathon, the Buffyverse commentfic meme of CRACK. Do y'all want to do that again? I'd be happy to host it again; it's not like it's a lot of work. I'd just like to gauge interest.

Hence, a poll!

In which much fiddling with the LJ polling code was done. I've seen it, so now I need to know ALL YOUR THOUGHTS (as represented by ticky boxes).

According to Rotten Tomatoes, The Rise of the Planet of the Apes is actually supposed to be... good? Good-ish? I know nothing about it except it has lots of good people.

I ask because apparently the roommates and I are going to the drive-in movie tonight, and our other options are Spy Kids (NO), Columbiana (yay Zoe Saldana, ugh yet another assassin movie and 36% RT rating), Conan the Barbarian (er, no thank you?), and Fright Night (which is moderately decent, the flist has told me, and probably my first choice unless y'all convince me otherwise).

So, a poll:


ETA: Yeah, so the roommates and I decided to stay home and watch SPN instead. Cheaper and more comfortable.

We really are lame, aren't we?

Mostly the First does a pretty good job mimicking the people it pretends to be (though I've seen interesting commentary on how it gets Dru wrong). Not so Jonathan. First!Jonathan sounds nothing like our real-world Jonathan, but rather a slimier version of Superstar!Jonathan. Maybe our Jonathan was too dithery and self-effacing to convince anyone of anything? Or maybe the First just couldn't deal with pretending to be that humble.

Also, you know that one flashback to Mexico where we see Andrew and Jonathan sharing a bed? I've always wondering about fannish consensus for that scene. Hence, a poll!

snick_backup: (Spike Dawn sibs)
This question came up because I was thinking about how I find it nearly effortless to write Spike and Dawn together. Theirs is a dynamic that just makes complete sense to me. I know how they work.

For a contrast, I find Faith and Buffy a real challenge to write together, even though post-series they clearly need to be BFFs.

So, a couple of questions: which couples (romantic or not) do you find easy to write? Which couples do you find hard to write? I'm not looking for shipping preferences here; I'm curious to know ships/pairs of people that you've actually tried to write together. If you've never tried your hand at Angel/Cordy, for example, feel free to leave that blank for both. OTOH, if you keep wanting to write the great Xander/Cordy epic and can't get started, that counts.

Note that this list is a bit idiosyncratic and not exhaustive.

A survey of sorts. This occurred to me this morning, and I'm curious. I mostly don't quote the really witty lines unless I'm with company that has a chance of recognizing their source. There's one or two, though, that are generic enough I use them all the time without feeling like I'm borrowing wittiness without proper attribution.

You?
