Ask Me  
Pillaged from em_kellesvig

Online journals are little filters that we each see every one else's lives through, the parts others choose to share with us. That said, we all think we are close, but really we seldom know *a lot* about each other. So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away.

Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you...

Do you have any tattoos?

There's actually something I've been dying to ask, but I've just spent ten minutes trying to figure out how to ask this question without possibly causing offence, so I'll just issue a blanket apology now and please feel free to just ignore this question:

What's the relationship between you and Nin?
Ith: Japan - Blue Girlithildyn on June 17th, 2009 11:48 pm (UTC)
I get asked this every time this meme comes around [g]

My former boss dubbed us 'heterosexual life partners' (apparently it's a reference to Silent Bob and somebody movies - can't remember)and that's a fairly accurate description :)

We've lived together for 12 odd years, share a checking account, vacations, friends, all that stuff. We just happen to like men. But nothing's perfect!

I am very confused as to how you and ninjababe are related. Sorry if this is too personal, but I'm very curious.
Ith: Japan - Sistersithildyn on June 18th, 2009 12:03 am (UTC)
We met via Forever Knight fandom in 1996 via the FK IRC channel, and she moved in late that year. We aren't related, though my mum considers her her daughter and she's a member of our family and always will be.

And for more info, scroll up to one of the other questions [g]

Which fictional guy would you most like to kiss?
Which fictional guy would you most like to marry?
Which fictional girl would you most like to be friends with?
Which fictional person would you not mind slapping sense into?
Ith: Media - Bloom No Moreithildyn on June 18th, 2009 12:25 am (UTC)
That's a hard one...

Kiss: Glorfindel from Lord of the Rings. Yes, I'm going obscure here. (He did in the book what they had Arwen do in the movie, rescue Frodo from the Black Riders)I just always had a crush on him.

Marry: Adam Sinclair from the Adept books.

Friends: Jane Eyre

Slap: now see if I answer that, I'll hurt somebody's feelings!

Have you ever thought about adopting a child? Would you if you had the opportunity?
Ith: Art - Wildwoodithildyn on June 18th, 2009 01:23 am (UTC)
Absolutely, and yes, I have thought about it. I'd especially like to adopt a girl from China where girls are routinely abandoned, if not killed outright due to the one child policy. It's an issue I've always been passionate about and made me realize very early on how fortunate I am to be a female here.

Who/what inspired you to become a writer?
Ith: My Fic Icons - Ith's Ficithildyn on June 18th, 2009 01:58 am (UTC)
Nothing I can think of :) I just like to write.

Is there a fandom you've always wanted to write in but never tried and if so why not?

Ith: Art - Haida Maskithildyn on June 18th, 2009 06:57 am (UTC)
[ponders] Can't think of anything offhand. I rarely have the urge to write fic in a new fandom. I suppose 'House' for a while in the beginning, but the medical aspect kept me from it. So he ended up just getting a cameo in a Highlander fic :)

I don't read a lot of poetry, but when I do, I like Japanese death poetry.

Tell me something that would surprise me.
Ith: Japan - Batithildyn on June 18th, 2009 07:02 am (UTC)
But I have no idea what would surprise you!


My parents moving us back to Canada when I was 14 pretty much screwed up my life. That work?
Lara I.lara_everlong on June 18th, 2009 05:00 am (UTC)
well... let's see... I don't know your first name, but I'm not sure if you share that online, and in my head I know I'll always think of you as "Ith" anyway, so that will not be my question...

ok here we go - I know were you lived and where you moved to, and both places are in the US. And yet, you call your mother your mum, so... are you British? Or... Canadian? Or what?
Ith: Media - Keira: Smokeithildyn on June 18th, 2009 07:03 am (UTC)
It's Denise, but I tend to think of myself as Ith these days -- even my brother has started using it.

My parents are Canadian, my grandparents/aunts/uncles British, and I lived part of my life in British Columbia.

Have you ever written Lord of the Rings/Silmarillion fanfiction?

Nope :) I've never read it or written it.

do you write anything other than fanfic? if so, what kind of things?
Ith: Iron Man - Starry Pepperithildyn on June 18th, 2009 08:29 pm (UTC)
When I was blogging, I wrote lots of current events type essays. I used to write original fic, but not so much anymore.

what about Methos appeals to you the most?
