June Something - Day 7, 8, 9, 10, 11

Most of these answers will be too short to make a whole post for, so I'm combining. Plus, I keep slacking on this and I do love June Something, so.
What is your favorite celebrity interaction from any fandom you've had?
I haven't met that many actors and tbh I usually like to go unnoticed. But my favorite celebrity interaction is probably when I met Joe. I got his autograph and we chatted for just a couple minutes about how I was left handed. I also had a photo op with him which was awesome - he's very thin, in real life. And it was a hot day so his body was really warm too lolll. But mostly I'm just like, "Boy am I glad I'm just one in a thousand faceless people to him."
What is a kink that fandom introduced you to, and you said, "Yes, Please!"
Every kink. I legit didn't read kink fic until Stargate Atlantis loll. I started with xanthe and blueraccoon and here I am. I love sub!Rodney and dirty talk. Ooo and docking thanks to @melagan.
Is there any fandom that you regret getting into?
The MCU. I am a Tony stan first and foremost, so it was AWFUL reading all the anti-Tony posts on tumblr as people turned against him. Fuck that fandom.
Besides deathfic, rape/non-con, what is something that, no matter the pairing, you nope out of when it comes to reading?
INCEST. I can't read it. John and Rodney in speranza's capable hands couldn't do it. If that combo can't, nothing can. The closest I can come is step-siblings fic (of which there is barely any), and only fic they meet when they're teens. If they grew up together as siblings, then it's icky to me.
How open are you about being in fandom to your non-fandom friends/family?
My family knows NOTHING about slash and what I read online. They know I'm a big fan of Stargate and collection Stargate-related memorabilia, but that's about it.

My co-worker became my best friend after we bonded about Stiles/Derek. I don't think she reads that much fic anymore, but she knows I'm still into it. Other than that, the only RL friends that know about me are my Squee family. This entry was originally posted at https://popkin16.dreamwidth.org/253427.html. Please comment there using OpenID.

June Something - Day 3

Who is the first character that you fell in love with?
Hmmm. I'm afraid I don't have much of an interesting answer for this question. I honestly don't remember. Harry Potter was probably my first obsession - it was certainly my first fandom. I reread all of the books multiple times and I can't even tell you how much fanfiction I read - and I wasn't picky about ships. I remember keeping a little notebook where I'd painstakingly write out the URL to fics I liked. But would I say that it was the first character I fell in love with? I feel like there should have been one before that, but maybe not?

I'm going to go with Harry Potter, because I can't think of anything else lol. This entry was originally posted at https://popkin16.dreamwidth.org/251953.html. Please comment there using OpenID.

June Something - Day 2

You're stuck in quarantine with two people from different fandoms. Who are they, and who "breaks" first?

Hmm. Honestly, quarantine sounds like a dream to me, introvert that I am. (Though I know I'd probably be so bored a week in). I'd want calm characters who are capable of being quiet and/or keeping to themselves, with the occasional social interaction. Or warm, sweet characters who are easy to be around.

I'm going to say Foggy Nelson, because he's sweet and kind. He'd be good company when I wanted it, and I feel like he'd totally understand that sometimes I need time alone to recharge. We'd watch movies together and he'd crack jokes - it'd just be fun. Plus he looks like he gives good hugs <3

I'm less sure about my second answer. When I first read this question, my brain went Teyla Emmagen because she's very calming and she gets people. She'd keep herself occupied with working out and meditation, and it'd be fun to introduce her to Earth media. I'm just not sure we'd have a lot to talk about? On the other hand I'm super awkward in real life so maybe she'd see how awkward I'm feeling and give me space lolll.

Foggy would definitely break first. He's sweet and good with people. He'd get restless, want to have some fun. Be around people again. This entry was originally posted at https://popkin16.dreamwidth.org/251845.html. Please comment there using OpenID.

June Something - Day 1

What's a new fandom that you've fallen into since the last June Something/in the last year?
I think there's two?

Good Omens was a new fandom for me, though the book fandom has been around for some time. I really adored the mini-series and read some really good fic. This fandom is a weird one for me though, because while I read quite a bit of fic, little of it gave me that rush you get when you read something really good. This is not a criticism of the fic or the fandom - for whatever reason, I just wasn't connecting with what was being put out. I still have some fic bookmarked to read that I'd like to get back to, but I'll have to watch the mini-series first. I kind of miss these idiots ♥

The second fandom has really taken over my life, and that'd be Buzzfeed Unsolved. It's just really funny, with short episodes, so it's the perfect way to relax after a crazy day at work. Plus, the hosts of the show are still putting out new episodes - not of BFU, but new, original stuff. So there is new content, fic, discussions, etc. It is RPF (at least the portion that I lurk is), which has always been controversial, and every now and then I'll see a post from someone about how disgusting we are, but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ There's some REALLY good fic, but I'm so desperate for stuff to read that I've been reading damn near anything.

COVID-19 Meme

1. Are you an Essential Worker?

I am. I work in the online grocery department at Walmart. People place their orders, we shop for them, and take it out to their cars to load their vehicles. You can imagine how busy we are lately. We don't have enough people or equipment, so every day is high stress and physical.

2. How many drinks have you had since the quarantine started?

None. I'm not really a drinker. Though I did desperately want a drink on Monday, I was in such a hurry to leave and get home that I forgot to stop and buy something.

3. If you have kids... Are they driving you nuts?

No kids. Ever, lol.

4. What new hobby have you taken up during this?

God, I wish. I'm so exhausted and sore when I get home from work I don't have the brain capacity to do much. I've been watching a lot of Buzzfeed Unsolved and reading fic for it. I'm less emotionally invested in that fandom, so it's easier for me to read. McShep fic gives me ALL THE FEELS and I just cannot.

5. How many grocery runs have you done?

About four? Once every two weeks or so. We're well stocked on toilet paper and hand sanitizer. We can only fit so much food in our tiny freezer, so I can't do REALLY BIG shopping. Because I work at Walmart I can pick up odds and ends as I need them, though.

6. What are you spending your stimulus check on?

Most of it is going into my savings account. My family is plagued by bad luck, so eventually I'm going to need it to fix the car, or take the dog to the vet.

7. Do you have any special occasions that you will miss during this quarantine?

Not really? My family doesn't really do much. Thanksgiving and Christmas are really the only holidays we go big for.

8. Are you keeping your housework done?

It's getting done, but only because I don't have to do it lol.

9. What movies have you watched during this quarantine?

None. I've been meaning to watch Knives Out, but like I said, I mostly just marathon Buzzfeed Unsolved until it's time for me to go to bed.

10. What are you streaming with?

Youtube for BFU. But I have Hulu through a friend, Netflix, Amazon Prime through a family member, and Disney+.

11. 9 months from now is there any chance of you having a baby?

Holy shit no.

12. What's your go-to quarantine meal?

We're really just eating the same things we always do.

13. Is this whole situation making you paranoid?

God, yes. Because I'm interacting with people all day at work, and you can't tell if someone is asymptomatic or not...it's a constant low-level beat of anxiety.

14. Has your internet gone out on you during this time?

No, but it has slowed down. Tumblr takes longer to load sometimes.

15. What month do you predict this all ends?

Given how cases are still going up every day, I'm going to say August. We aren't going to have a working vaccine for awhile. The disease is going to continue to spread.

16. First thing you’re gonna do when you get off quarantine?

I'm not being quarantined. But when it calms down somewhat, I'm going to take 4 days off. I really, really need a break from work.

17. Where do you wish you were right now?

Home. I just really want several days in a row where I can stay home and sleep and relax.

18. What free-from-quarantine activity are you missing the most?

The ability to go to sit-down restaurants with my boyfriend or family member(s). 

19. Have you run out of toilet paper and hand sanitizer?

Nope, we are WELL stocked up on that.

20. Do you have enough food to last a month?

If I absolutely COULD NOT go out for a month - no. Not even close. We just don't have the space to store that much food in our trailer. But if necessary, I could leave my card outside (hidden, of course) for my brother to grab. He could shop for us, leave the food on the porch, and we could bring it in when he leaves.
