Five Questions Meme  
Taken from, and had questions asked, by potentiality_26:
- Comment with "Paper. Scissors. Rock. Spock. Merlin."
- 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 (or answer in the comments if you prefer).
- Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.


01. What’s your favorite season or time of year?
Right now, actually. I love the fall and winter seasons, and not just because they feature two of my favorite holidays. I love the cooler weather, particularly when it's not yet too cold or too warm, but the right kind of mild temperature.

02. What’s your favorite new show or movie (as in from this year or last year)?
For this year my favorite new show has to be How To Get Away With Murder. It's quite fascinating and has a nice blend of character drama and crime mystery, and I really like the setup especially with the unraveling of the mystery bit by bit with the flashforwards. A new show from last year, it would be to be a tie between Brooklyn Nine-Nine (very funny with a great diverse cast) and Sleepy Hollow (the Abbie and Ichabod Show, tbh). As for favorite movie, y'all know it's coming: Desolation of Smaug. I'm not a huge moviegoer in general, I only go to movies when something really intrigues me or when it's part of a franchise that I like, and The Hobbit films have been that franchise for me.

03. Do you have a favorite historical period or other setting for movies/tv shows/books? What is it?
I don't think I have any particular favorite era, but in general I like it when something focuses on a certain time or culture in history that hasn't really been told before, or something that we see a different perspective of. Bonus points if the strong points are featuring women and their roles. Extra bonus points if it features non-white cultures done accurately.

04. What’s a quote you really love?
I don't really have one? I like certain quotes, but none that really stick to mind that I can think of at the moment.

05. Who’s your favorite band/singer? (Or top five, if you prefer)
Shit, well. I listen to a lot of musical artists and my favorites change and rotate constantly, but here are some of my favorites that I've been listening to on a loop lately: Marina and the Diamonds, Lindsey Stirling, Bear McCreary (composer of many television shows, including Battlestar Galactica, seriously he's amazing and I can't not listen to him daily), Namie Amuro, and Icon For Hire.

I totally agree about time of year. I like it when the temperatures are right in the middle.
Renéerogueslayer452 on November 12th, 2014 08:55 am (UTC)
It's just a nice transition of being able to wear both a t-shirt and a lightweight sweater or jacket without worrying if I am too under-dressed or overdressed for the weather conditions.

giallarhorn: allison & lydiagiallarhorn on November 11th, 2014 05:39 am (UTC)
See, my only problem with winter is that the cold and snow. And the general lack of actual daylight, but otherwise the temperature in fall is just very crisp and nice.

Icabod vs the 21st century along with Abbie against random ridiculous historical shenanigans, ha.

Spcok, I think. Or do I have to say all of them instead of just picking who I think would win?
Renéerogueslayer452 on November 11th, 2014 10:52 am (UTC)
I would love to have snow here. I know I'm romanticizing it for sure, but I would love to have a proper snowy Christmas at least once in my life.

I love how Sleepy Hollow just embraces the ridiculousness of its plot at times, they just go with it, and somehow it works. It's so great and fun and I love it. ;)

I think you just had to write it all down, but regardless here are your questions:

01. Has a certain celebrity or actor you admired ever disappointed you in any way? How as that affected the way you view them?
02. What particular headcanon has one of your fandoms universally adopted that you don't necessarily agree with?
03. What do you like or dislike about where you currently live?
04. If you became a billionaire overnight, and after dealing with bills and all the necessity things to pay off, what would be the first thing you'd splurge the money on?
05. Looking back at your involvement in fandom, how have you evolved both as a person and as a fan?
Galadriel.: BSG ✽ OTPsixphanel on November 11th, 2014 10:04 pm (UTC)
Marina and the Diamonds and Bear McCreary <333333 I love them. And I don't know the others, so I'll have to check them out :D

Btw... Paper. Scissors. Rock. Spock. Merlin :3


Renée: Six. Relaxation.rogueslayer452 on November 12th, 2014 02:00 am (UTC)
01. How are you feeling today, bby? Tell me something good that happened to you recently.
02. What are your top five favorite television shows ever?
03. Describe your current sense of style. Are you up with the fashionable clothing, or are you more laidback and casual? How has your fashion sense changed over the years?
04. Who is your celebrity crush (male and/or female) at the moment?
05. What is your current fandom obsession?
thekaiserchiefthekaiserchief on November 12th, 2014 01:43 am (UTC)
I love the cooler weather, too. :)

When I was really big on J-pop in middle school, I loved Namie Amuro. Now I feel like listening to her music again :p And Marina <3

"Paper. Scissors. Rock. Spock. Merlin." (I probably won't ask other questions but I still want to do this.)

Renéerogueslayer452 on November 12th, 2014 03:34 am (UTC)
I discovered Namie during high school, and I just fell in love. ♥ She's still going strong, and just released some new music. It's quite curious, though, how kpop became more of a worldwide phenomenon in recent years than jpop.

01. If you could crossover any two of your fandoms (past or present), what would they be and in what kind of scenario do you imagine would happen?
02. Who is the one character you will always protect and defend no matter what?
03. Recommend something that you think everyone should get into (music/movie/show/book/etc).
04. What are your thoughts and opinions on the controversy surrounding the recent trend of interviewers talking to actors about fanwork, such as showing them NSFW fanart or asking their thoughts on fanfiction, even demanding they read passages from them on camera? Do you think it's fair game for interviewers to ask something that is free to the public on the Internet, or is that crossing the unprofessional line? What about fans that constantly harass actors via Twitter and at conventions? How does all of this negatively reflect on the fandom community and how can this be fixed?
05. What is one particular hype that you just cannot understand?
thekaiserchiefthekaiserchief on November 13th, 2014 02:57 pm (UTC)
1. I would love to see a crossover between Firefly and Game of Thrones. I feel like that would be really interesting. Maybe the crew of Serenity travels back in time?
2. Regina Mills from Once Upon a Time. Yes, she has done some evil things, but she's trying to be better. It makes me sad that people in the OUAT fandom still bash her.
3. Everyone should read Is Everyone Hanging Out With Me? by Mindy Kaling. Truly hilarious.
4. I think there's a line between what is appropriate to ask actors about. I don't think actors should have to read/look at explicit works during an interview. Hmm...it's natural for fans to want to communicate with actors, but they should be respectful. The fandom community should, for lack of better words, calm down maybe? Just to stop others from seeing us in a negative light.
5. I really don't get why so many people love The Walking Dead. Tried watching it and I was just bored.
Renée: House Martell.rogueslayer452 on November 13th, 2014 11:00 pm (UTC)
Maybe the crew of Serenity travels back in time?

Well, considering that I think Westeros is a completely different world altogether, perhaps there may be a planet out there in the 'verse that they stumble upon and that could be Westeros? Like, when on a job to transport cargo they took a misdirection and somehow find a planet that wasn't part of the terraforming process and has always been inhabited (much like Earth That Was), and upon exploring they come across the Others, which they mistake at first as Reavers, and then all hell breaks loose.

Love fall season the best. I tried to watch How To Get Away With Murder but never got into it. Have not watched Sleepy Hollow and never heard of Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Love The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug!
