Being Friendly  
Pillaged almost in its entirety from kalquessa because I'm basically lazy and her memory appears to be as bad as mine [g]

Hi, friends list! There are a bazillion and a half of you! Wow. And I have a really terrible memory, so I have a hard time remembering who you all are sometimes, and which fandoms I have in common with whom, and I'm kind of curious where I came by most of you, because I can't remember in many cases. Some of you just flit by now and again, which is always a treat, and some of you have become regulars on my comment threads, which is its own kind of yay. Anyway, to steal the words of the meme:

I'd really appreciate if all of you f'list folks, wherever you fall on the spectrum, would come on by and say "hi" here. (Re)-introduce yourself, maybe mention how you ended up friending me, any fandoms we may share, tell me something random about yourself, whatever you like.

In other words, talk to me, peeps!

Sure, I can look at it :) What's the time frame? [smooshes you]

Long time listener, million time caller....
Ooo. um, let's see. I think it was therightfangirl.

Let's see though, I doubt fandom is the right word for most of this, except I'm totally a fan of these things that you like: Pirates; pirates; historical cool stuff; mythology, which is kinda historical cool stuff but also it's very own thing; food; more food; historical ships, more historical cool stuff; and then Dr. Who, except I'm so far behind that I don't comment much on your posts about that.

and I friended you because you are so freaking cool. That about sums it up.

Something random about me, hmm, I'm all drugged up on cold meds at the moment so I'd better shy away from this. I think this comment has exceeded it's ability to hold in the weirdness of my brain at this moment. :D

Awww! Well, I think you're pretty darn cool too :)You're on my list of people I'd love to meet in RL.

I hope you're feeling better soon.

Ooh, lets see. I think I originally discovered you as I was after icons, then I got distracted by your fic. *g*

An intro for me? Well, I'm a crossover whore (hence the being distracted by your fic) and I share more than a couple of your fandoms... Highlander, Torchwood, Dr Who (classic and new), Forever Knight and now, thanks to you, Queen of Swords to name just a few.

hiya. I followed you home from horsedoovers. I admired your taste in Methos and Adam Pierson and so decided to hang-around and see what else was on tap.

Anywho, we have Highlander, Forever Knight and LOTR in common. Sharon pointed me in your direction about two years ago.
Ith: Art - Haida Maskithildyn on April 14th, 2008 08:18 pm (UTC)

We met through a House MD Yahoo Group.. :) and eventually friended each other here.

I think we share
House, TW, Dr Who .. maybe Eli and Pushing Daisies??? I am sure there are other fandoms that we share but maybe just don't talk about.

Random fact.... In 4th grade right after my adult front teeth grew in, I cracked the corner off on of them in a game of playground tag. :)

I met you through your Absinthe and Cookies blog (speaking of which you never did get back to me about my request for a copy of your smoked habanero slasa recipe). As far as fandoms, I know we share Forever Knight, Doctor Who, and Firefly/Serenity. Not sure much what else we have in common.
Ith: Art - Forest Quillithildyn on April 14th, 2008 10:19 pm (UTC)
I'm a lousy typist so waiting for me type in a recipe will most likely be a long wait. Might be quicker to do a websearch for it.

Hee hee. Hi! I can't remember how we found each other, either, but you are fannish and leave interesting comments, so I don't really care! *grin* Although, I have exactly no Highlander experience, so I skip over a lot of your fic. I *did* recognize Tannith on SG-1 as being played by the same actor as Methos purely because I'd seen so much of him in your icons, though. I thought you'd be proud.

A real newbie here. I met you through your yahoo House group and became enticed over to LJ by your fic. We share House, Highlander, Queen of Swords and Tolkien.
This last week I have discovered a passion for chillie chocolate, almost as good as sex!
Ith: Art - Haida Maskithildyn on April 14th, 2008 10:30 pm (UTC)

Alicia: seasons And centuriesdiamond9697 on April 14th, 2008 10:38 pm (UTC)
Let's see, I'm Dia, and we met more or less through the Highlander friending meme thing a little while back. I had been reading your stuff for a while though in highlander50.

Umm, we seem to share several interests actually!
Ith: QoS - Helm Smileithildyn on April 14th, 2008 10:39 pm (UTC)

Ry: Clan MacLeod - faile02merriman on April 14th, 2008 10:45 pm (UTC)

We met through that HL friending meme, though I'd seen your fics on the HL comms for a while.

To be honest, I'm not entirely sure what else we share, fandom-wise. Probably a couple, looking at other comments.

I'm not that prolific on this LJ these days, though I am working on a HL fic. It's just slow going. Sad.
Ith: Japan - Sistersithildyn on April 14th, 2008 10:49 pm (UTC)
LJ is like a giant shopping mall where we often pass each other in the halls, but don't always end up in the same shops [g]

Good luck with the fic!

captnofmyheart: dontforgetoldshipmatescaptnofmyheart on April 15th, 2008 12:03 am (UTC)
Oh thank you for the chance to whore publicize myself the fandom in which I am heavily involved.

I shall always be a Tolkienite/Hobbit Freak, so the LOTR fandom is a given, but I havent swum in those waters for quite some time. My fandom got completely taken over by a character created by Patrick O'Brian, which then became a fandom for the actor that played that character in a movie that came out in 2003 ("Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World") - and in getting into THAT fandom found a couple of fanfiction sites where I met some really amazing and delightful people. I am currently the webmaster for a fanfiction site that has rejuvenated itself by making it possible for consistent updates for both the 'old' writers and the new fans that have shown up in the fandom.

The Gaslight Hotel Gateway

What the Gaslight contains is an Alternate Universe for the various different characters portrayed by Russell Crowe (there are NO stories that involve the actor himself) and the writers strive hard to keep the characters in canon (ie if the character that Crowe plays was gay in the movie to begin with, then we expect the stories to continue the characterization, but we do not accept slash stories that change the basic nature of the characters.)

I cant remember how we met - I think it must have been the POB love...LOL...not sure...
captnofmyheart: unnatural cuddlecaptnofmyheart on April 15th, 2008 12:08 am (UTC)
OI - what am I saying? I REMEMBER how we met - but it was in a blogospheric galaxy far far away in another time...and we've kept in touch with each other...*doh!*...Im brain dead today...

Ninjababe: Stitch-Hi!ninjababe on April 15th, 2008 12:56 am (UTC)
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away... The beauteous and powerful Ninjababe, she who is mighty, traveled many a mile from her home in the land The-South-Will-Rise-Again to the land of Wackos-and-Strangeness-plus-some-Wine! Soon, after many adventures and much peril, she landed on the doorstep of Ithildin, she who is wondrous. And, the rest, as they say, is history. Just spiffed up a bit in my head... :)

Hey, you asked!

I came across you from kalquessa or one or the other mutual friends, actually. :D

While I don't write fanfic, I do enjoy it from time to time (I tend to stick to Highlander, but I also read Sailor Moon fanfic.). I do happy dances, star_sign and I tend to speak in unison on occasion, and I met my husband at her wedding (Our husbands knew each other from the Navy.). :D

Mmm. let's see. I was all alone at the first PWFC Road trip in Reno (a con newbie actually), it was the Friday night mixer and when I walked in you were sitting alone at a table (your friends Jen and Ninjababe were off playing BINGO). Since you "looked normal" I approached and ask if a seat was available. Thereafter you took me in, introduce me to Cafe Diablo, taught me the ropes of cons and actually got me to get an internet connection and LJ account.

Basically, you could say you corrupted to the ways of fandom!

Go Ith!

holla., i found your journal randomly through the "random journal" feature and friended you because it turned out, after perusing your interests, that we have a lot in common, like Highlander, LOTR, Doctor Who/Torchwood, and probably some other stuff I'm leaving out... you like all types of vintage stuff, too, right? Yep, me too.
Ith: Vintage - Orange Nudeithildyn on April 17th, 2008 06:56 pm (UTC)
I'm not sure, but I think you're the only person who has friended me through that function [g] So you're unique!

Yep, love vintage stuff! Need to make some more vintage icons soon.
