meme: I C WAT U DID THUR

- Comment with "I see what you did there!"
- I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can get to know you better.
- Update your journal with the answers to the questions.
- Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.


from verizonhorizon:

1. If you could only eat 3 foods for the rest of your life, what would you pick?
Pasta. Chocolate. Strawberries. I don't even know.

2. What first drew you to shipping Kirk/Spock?
I watched TOS and the movies when I was little, and have been shipping K/S as long as I knew what shipping was. But I didn't get involved in this fandom until after STXI came out; for some reason that movie made me want to write in a way that TOS didn't. *shrugs*

3. What was your first fandom?
X-Files. Specifically Krycek/Mulder BDSM porn. Don't judge me.

4. Have you ever been in love?
Yes, actually. And got my heart broken, squashed, and then stepped on a few times for good measure. And yes, I'm still not over it.

5. What do you enjoy about writing?
I love being able to take stories from my head and show them to other people. I love being able to fill in the gaps that I see in canon, and I love creating new worlds and characters, too. I love when a story starts beating against the inside of my head, begging to be put on the page. I love challenging myself, whether it's writing in a different style or fandom or tense. Writing is awesome. :D

1. What was the first character you played in a roleplaying game?

2. What was the best book you've read recently?

3. What's your favorite episode of your favorite tv show?

4. What did you have for dinner?

5. Would you be interested in helping me test out the Stargate RPG books I will be acquiring soon?

1. My very first character was a human wizard made for gaming during the bus ride back from 4th grade. He got killed off while I wasn't there, falling into a pit of acid.
2. Best book I've read recently...let's go with Usama ibn Munqidh's "Book of Contemplation," which is hilarious, if only for seeing how ibn Munqidh backstabbed and intrigued against his various rulers and bosses.
3. Favorite episode of Bab5 would be...let's see. Mind War is up there, as is And The Rock Cried Out, No Hiding Place. I'd have to go with Into the Fire, though (the climax of the Shadow War).
4. I had some easy mac. I am lazy.
5. Sure. Would you want me as a player or GM?

1. You started early, didn't you? :P

4. Heh.

5. Dunno. On the one hand, I've never GMed before, but on the other, I know the canon a heck of a lot better than you do. Again, I need to look at the play system; that'll have a lot to do with whether I'd feel comfortable GMing.

The gaming interest started even earlier, with a D&D choose your own adventure book from...2nd grade? That sounds right. Played my first elven fighter from that.

The system is d20-based, right?

It's probably best if you GMed, then, because I don't know the Stargate feel. I could watch some episodes, check a wiki, but I'd likely wind up creating an adventure which didn't feel overmuch like Stargate (or even "how I think Stargate should feel," which is even more tricky). I could do those with the franchises I follow, but definitely not SG.

Regardless of who's GMing, the first game is probably best run without any of the supplements, creating basic characters with minimal CharOp.

I can give oodles of GMing advice (in both writing adventures and running 'em) whenever you want. I kinda like going off at the drop of a hat on that score... :P

I do not recall, but I suspect it is d20.

Yes, I would totally run it straight-up the first time.

Advice would be awesome.

We'll see my thoughts on the system and stuff and reassess.
