7 things meme  
taken from sapphirestar_

Comment to this post, and I will list seven things I want you to talk about. They might make sense or they might be totally random.

Then post that list, with your commentary, to your journal. Other people can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.

01. rodney mckay
Haha, what to say about Rodney McKay. He's my favorite Stargate character, and the focus of my schoolgirl crush and lust along with the actor who plays him. Rodney's arrogant and insecure, vulnerable and brave. His bottom lips drives me to distraction, and so does his arms, eyelashes, belly, and various other body parts. He causes me to have warm, squishy feelings, and feelings that are not meant for public (unless you're into that kind of thing). I am protective of him like a Mama Bear is protective of her young.

02. your plans for the future
Finish school, get a good job, and then start a family. All of which seems far out of my reach at the moment, unfortunately. Although I love school, I'm beginning to doubt my ability to finish it. I don't seem to be getting anywhere. I take classes and never seem to get close to getting my degree.

03. your daily routine
Wake up, eat. I usually just laze around sucking down caffeine in an effort to wake up. If it's Monday/Wednesday/Saturday, I have to do my fitness walk for class. I usually return home, get something to eat and then watch some television or read something on my Kindle. Then I eat again, do some homework, and then it's ONLINE TIME and my true life begins.

04. tell me about your dog!
Her name is Sadie, she's four years old. She's a terrier/chihuahua mix, and the biggest sissy ever. She was once afraid of a cookie jar. It didn't do anything to her, it just sat there (in an alarming manner in her eyes, I suppose). She is absolutely spoiled rotten; she gets her way 90% of the time, and she is fully aware she is queen of the house. She's fiercely protective of her family (though all that really means is if someone tries to touch you she'll climb in your lap and bark at them).

05. what are your favourite languages?
I took some Spanish in high school and college, as well as Japanese. I like them :) I think French is fascinating, though I've not had the opportunity to learn.

06. the life of a fangirl
It's full of passion - for tv shows, movies, books. It's about admiration and affection for actors and actresses, the characters they portray. It's caring about fictional characters that mean something to you. It's flailing and sharing, drawing and writing. Fangirl life brings people together, distance be damned. It's laughter and inside jokes and references only people who are familiar with your fandom would understand. The life of a fangirl is (sometimes) late nights and tears, whispering I love you at your computer screen. Living the life of a fangirl has introduced me to some of the best people I know, and I love them.

07. top five favourite rodney/john moments
Oh god, only five? Out of order:

echoes; john pulling rodney's metaphorical pigtails - "zelenka is smarter than you." and "celine dion is a overrated."
miller's crossing; rodney pleading with john to let him sacrifice himself. that entire scene breaks my heart. rodney's face, his teary eyes; john's pained refusal.
doppelganger; john's devastation when he believes rodney is dead. dazedly wandering the corridors of atlantis, numb.
the shrine; john's refusal to say goodbye to rodney.
the last man; rodney giving up his entire life to save john sheppard.

and that's it! :)

Ah, le francais, c'est magnifique!

*uses happy rodney icon*

This is awesome, hon. Not just because it's a cool meme and you talk about fangirling and john & rodney and rodney's best bits (yummmmmmy), but b/c this looks like a really great way to get to know fellow fans a little deeper.

popkin16: ☊ i just can't make it alonepopkin16 on March 10th, 2012 02:26 am (UTC)
:D It looks difficult to learn. But it's a beautiful language.

sdj;kas your icon is so damn adorable. Look at that smile and those pink cheeks! Rodneyyyy ♥ ♥

Fangirling & John/Rodney and Rodney's best bits are some of my favorite subjects :) It's definitely a great way to get to know people and their opinions on certain subjects.

Your seven things (unless you don't want them, then just ignore this):

1. John Sheppard
2. McShep: Who is the big spoon/little spoon?
3. One fic you wish everyone has read
4. Something that makes you happy
5. Your fandom previous to Stargate & why you left it
6. A song you never tire of
7. The last movie you watched

hoktauri on March 10th, 2012 03:42 am (UTC)
I personally didn't find French difficult. Probably the hardest part is pronunciation. (A lot of the endings of words just sort of softly fade away or drop off into the ether altogether.)

Eeeee!! Rodney cheeks! Almost as wonderful as Rodney belly! :-D Which I need an icon of. ♥

Okay, I'm going to get to my seven things! ^__^
popkin16: ☆ darkness to lightpopkin16 on March 10th, 2012 05:11 am (UTC)
I hear the way the French count is really weird.

fja;sk Cheeks and belly ♥ I am so damn fond of you, David Hewlett. Of your face and such.

I hope I managed at least one interesting question!

I usually fail wildly at memes, but this one looks like so much fun--and will evolve with every telling, so count me in too! I had to snort at how your life doesn't begin until it goes online!

Sadie sounds like the quintessential chihuahua! I can just picture her now. :-)

I admire your ability to distill five seasons of SGA into 5 terrific John/Rodney moments--oh yes!
popkin16: ☂  here comes troublepopkin16 on March 10th, 2012 02:37 am (UTC)
It's a great deal of fun! I've only known some of you for a short period of time, so my knowledge of what to ask about is sadly limited, so I usually resort to McShep :P

I had to snort at how your life doesn't begin until it goes online!
I thought I'd be completely honest :P Online is where my social life is at - and I don't regret it.

Haha, she really is. Sadie's adorable, but can be a pain in the butt :P

Oh, it was so difficult. So many moments to choose from! I went for the really big moments, the famous ones.

Your seven things:

1. John or Rodney: Who steals the covers? Uses all the hot water?
2. Something about your job that makes you happy
3. The fic you're most proud of
4. Thoughts on Ronon/Teyla
5. The last song you listened to
6. Two things you wish we could have seen on SGA
7. Your favorite food
sgamadisonsgamadison on March 10th, 2012 05:09 am (UTC)
Awesome! Will do my best to give it serious thought and post tonight--thank you!

neevebrody: McShep-Nite2neevebrody on March 9th, 2012 11:00 pm (UTC)
Your McShep moments are classic and I can imagine how unbelievably hard it was to pick just 5! And I am so with you on the protective of Rodney... I think John feels very much that way and so do I. ;)

I would love to play, so consider this my comment. I need to virtually "get out more" and this looks like a great way to break the ice after being gone so long.
popkin16: ♥  falling togetherpopkin16 on March 10th, 2012 01:23 am (UTC)
It was extremely difficult! There were so many moments I wanted to put down and had to weigh them against each other /o\ I'm glad others feel protective of Rodney too...especially John :P It's canon that he'd do anything for Rodney.

Oh! I hope my list helps inspire you, then :)

1. Two Stargate Characters
2. Your feelings about writing
3. Something you do to relax
4. John Sheppard's sexuality (lol)
5. The last two fics you read and what you thought
6. Something that makes you happy
7. How you discovered Hewligan
neevebrody: Brendan-Emmettneevebrody on March 18th, 2012 06:15 pm (UTC)
Finally! Please forgive me for taking so long, and for being so long-winded. I'm afraid I had to put my answers in a post - HERE. Very thought-provoking questions, btw.
ember_firedrake: SGA Rodney faaaaaceember_firedrake on March 10th, 2012 01:12 am (UTC)
Lovely answers. I agree wholeheartedly on everything regarding Rodney McKay. :D

*twirls you*
popkin16: ☊ i take my aimpopkin16 on March 10th, 2012 01:28 am (UTC)
I figured of everyone, you would know what was coming as soon as you saw "Rodney McKay'. :P You're often the person I go to when I need to get my feelings out!

*huuuug* ♥

1. How you feel your NaNoWriMo Novel has progressed (are you happy with it? Did it go the way you wanted, or did the characters demand different actions and such?)
2. Rodney McKay is owls
3. Two bands you're fond of
4. Farscape
5. RayK/Fraser
6. Your job
7. The last thing that made you laugh
