I love that nickname origin!

I suppose it's not a bad origin story, and at least it's a great character to name oneself for... these day, I usually go for Meneldur, who was a (very wise) king of Numenor famed for his astronomy - the name literally means 'watcher of the heavens'. Not only is he a great character, it alludes to my love of astronomy.

Well then, once more unto the breach:

1) What is the name you most love (could be real name, user name, family name of anyone) and why?

2) What is your fondest memory?

3) What is the skill you have that you most value, and what skill/ability do you desire the most?

4) Who is your favorite artist (could be painter/sculptor/ composer/singer/writer/poet, etc) and why?

5) What is your greatest dream that you wish would come true, and what is your greatest dream that has come true?

thanks for answering! i, too, used to watch Sailor Moon long ago- especially the one with Sailors Neptune and Uranus. On American tv, they heavily edited out the lesbian stuff, but they couldn't fool me. :)

ha- i suppose fangirling is a weird hobby to most people but not around these parts.

i love a good anti-hero and/or anti-villain. i think i might like the anti-villains more at this point- anti-heroes are becoming a bit overdone on American tv these days. i was disappointed by the resolution in Deathly Hallows, but I don't think I would fault JKR's worldbuilding. She's certainly better at it than any of her most recent imitators in the YA genre.

Confession: I can't do Tolkien. Heresy for a fantasy fan, I know! i like the movies ok and I liked the Hobbit as a kid but it's just nor me.

I still read fanfiction for it (mostly centered on Haruka/Michiru), though most of my favorite authors haven't updated in quite a while. They didn't fool me either - Haruka and Michiru were my first realization, at about third grade, that different sexualities existed. I'm glad we share this as well (the season they were most in was the third, Sailor Moon S, which as I wrote above, was my favorite).

I see what you're saying about anti-villains. JKR had too many flaws, from characters to world to plot.
As for Tolkien, that's fine. I admit it's very detail-oriented, but I enjoy that a lot when done properly, and am quite good at remembering it.

if you like anime, have you seen Strawberry Panic? it's got to be the most femslashy thing i have ever seen anywhere. it's basically just girls' boarding school politics. i think you would dig the romance between reigning Ice Queen Shizuma and naive new girl, Nagisa.

Looked it up, it sounds very interesting, and it's not too long. I'll have to check it out. What did you think of the a/b/o fics I recommended?
