This is sort of for my personal log (since my memory sucks sometimes) and for the amusement and edification of all bystanders watching this car wreck. XD Written sort of in flowchart/bulletpoint style, because I'm trying to wean myself from writing humongous endless paragraphs. :P Also a note: I'm not that stalkery, really! I'm just trying to be complete in my links, and to see if I can lure anyone of you darlings into my fandoms. XDDDDD

~*~ So I'm somewhere between a fandom butterfly and a fandom wolf; I'll change fandoms every so often but I'll keep them for a long time and go back to them from time to time. For my purposes, I'm tracing this as far back as when I got into Stargate: Atlantis fandom two and a half years ago (fall 2005) which I blame entirely on [livejournal.com profile] yaviasad. It's adventuring! In Space! With Pseudoscience and Gay Gay Subtext! That and the strong sense of Team feeling completely pulled me in.

~*~> And what do I do in a fandom? Search out the good fanfic, of course. The marvelous thing about SGA fandom is that writers and artists have flocked to it from lots of other fandoms, so there's almost a surfeit of riches in terms of amazing stuff to read, great art to giggle or sigh over, podfic, and so forth. In my bouncing around, I landed on the lj of [livejournal.com profile] thefourthvine, a hilarious person who recommends fics, fanvids, manga series, lots of things. Her recs are so fun (and funny) to read! About the middle post of this tag in July or August 2006 was at the top when I found her in September, which launched me into another fandom.

~*~> Hikaru no Go! ([livejournal.com profile] erjika will tell you that I'm always the last to get into a fandom, because when I found this one I remembered some of the art I'd seen as the header on her blog. About, oh, six or seven years ago. ^^;;; It's a series about a boy who is possessed by a thousand-year-old ghost so he can play Go, an ancient strategy game. But really, it's about how this boy Hikaru meets a Go-obsessed twelve-year-old named Akira, gets him as a rival, develops passion for something, and grows up. (It's neat the way this manga covers time, by the time it's over they're about sixteen/seventeen). There's heated rivalry! Silly ghosts! Angst! Did I mention rivalry to the point that they're practically married?

~*~> Through this fandom I found [livejournal.com profile] mousapelli, whose Hikaru no Go fic, among other fandoms, can be found here and also on her lj. You know how there are some authors whose writing you'll read no matter what, regardless of fandom, because their writing is just that good/entertaining/captivating/alive? From her HnG fic I started browsing her other stuff, and the top couple of posts on her lj include You Can't Help But Grow Hot, fic of Arashi + concert high. I had no idea who these people were, but the immediacy of the writing, the way they felt concrete and real, the nakamaship and team feeling all just pulled me in.

\/\/-> And here's where I take a little detourand I cut because it's already getting long and afoiajfljroagor )

~*~> So yes, that there's the path of my doom. These five guys are hilarious, dorky, really care about each other even (especially) when whacking each other for saying dumb/pervy/ridiculous things, smoking hot, and even though they're definitely not the most talented singers and dancers of the talent agency, for sure they've got a lot of heart. (And are very, very entertaining. XD)

Maybe if I'm bored I'll insert a helpful flowchart. ^_^ I hope you loves were entertained and possibly intrigued, but I'll settle for amused at my expense while I flail over boys dancing over rainbows. With sparkles and shiny.

So I'm catching up on SGA fandomness, and saw some photos from the SGA panel at Comic Con. And saw Rachel Luttrell (the actress who plays Teyla), thinking- wow, she looks really different from on TV. Mainly I think because she has her hair natural (i think?) at that con pic, and it's lovely, frizzy/curly brown hair. And then I started thinking of how she looks on TV. And wondering what the HELL kind of chemicals and junk they must do to her poor hair to make it all straight and kinda bronze. ehehe.

(which descends in my head into this bizarre discussion of ethnic/phenotypic stuff, since I know that she's Tanzanian, and with the hair she has on SGA I got really confused, eheh. Also discussions I had with other women in New Orleans about women of color bonding through gripes about hair and skin and products. :P)

Promo vids for the next season of Stargate, a link:

The Sheppard one, the first one, is awesomely funny. I saved it, opened, and at first thought I had saved the completely wrong thing. But yeah- just watch them. *dies giggling*

Also, a rec, because lately (this includes the last semester of college when I was procrastinating on thesis by diving into SGA fandom) I've been into the AUs. I've always been a fan of AUs for whatever fandom I'm in though. :P Anyhow: Atlantis as a publishing house. Insane, yes, and some of the characterisations made me go "huh, really?" but they just fit so well in the way that SGA seems to work so well for AUs. Anyhoo, the story here is The Continuing Adventures of Ronon Dex, Senior Editor by [livejournal.com profile] lalejandra, and if you go to her journal you can find the bits and pieces of other stories in that universe. I really enjoyed the choices she made with the characters (Ronon! Lorne! Stacks!!(glee)), and the way she writes in sort of choppy vignette bits. YMMV, of course.

*howls*

So I fell into SGA fandom recently. And while bouncing around the net, I followed a link to this:

Basically? SGA and ex-boyfriend stereotypes. All y'all seriously need to read this. XD *dies of giggles*
