Rule 3: tag 11 new people and link them to your post.
Rule 4: let them know you’ve tagged them.
1. If you could live in any tv show, which one would you choose?
This is thirteen-year-old me talking, but I’d live in the new series (1990s) Tomorrow People, as a Tomorrow Person. And I would date the hell out of Adam. And be telepathic. And basically just be constantly squeeing over my superpowers. “I JUST TELEPORTED! I JUST FLIPPING TELEPORTED! YESSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!” That would be me. I am a giant nerd.
2. What are your OTPs (If you have more than one)?
My ultimate OTP, as I think everyone on earth knows, is Nancy Drew/Ned Nickerson. I love them so much.
Other OTPs include Will Riker/Deanna Troi (Star Trek: The Next Generation), Perry Mason/Della Street (Perry Mason books), Rick/Evie O’Connell (The Mummy, but let’s be honest, Rachel Weisz is the only real Evie), Buffy Summers/Angel (Buffy), Fox Mulder/Dana Scully (X-Files), Veronica Mars/Duncan Kane (Veronica Mars), Lois Lane/Clark Kent (Lois & Clark), Tony Stark/Pepper Potts (Iron Man movies), Sam/Sybil Vimes and Carrot/Angua (Discworld), Ned/Chuck (Pushing Daisies), Chuck/Sarah (Chuck), Mary/Matthew (Downton Abbey).
This is just some of them. I OTP a lot.
3. Your favourite fandom?
This might be weird, but MST3K. The worst thing that happens in the fandom, really, is people disagreeing on whether Mike or Joel was better, and I love both of them, although I have a slight preference for Mike. (I would say Nancy Drew is my favorite fandom, but a) the majority of it is based on the games, at least on tumblr, and b) the majority of it ships a pairing other than my OTP, and that hurts me. Because I regress to the age of eight when someone ships Nancy with anyone other than Ned. Some days just looking at the nancy drew tag on tumblr or the Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew section on FFN makes me depressed.)
4. A meal that reminds you of your childhood?
Pot roast with mashed potatoes and peas. It’s been a very long time since I’ve had it. Also, Kraft mac and cheese, the powdered kind out of the box, reminds me of my childhood too.
5. What are you looking forward to?
Getting over this cold! Also, the Nancy Drew convention in Boston in May 2013.
6. What’s been your proudest achievement so far?
Hmm. In a way, probably earning my Master’s degree.
7. How many pets have you had in your lifetime?
I’ve only had one pet which was entirely mine. Family pets, we had… three, for any real length of time.
8. Do you have any secret guilty pleasures?
Well, if I say them, they aren’t secret. I do like to watch the Backyardigans when I need cheering up and it’s on. (If I need some more serious cheering up, I watch MST3K.)
9. A place you’d love to travel to?
Everywhere, really. I want to go to Ireland, Sweden, Germany, Greece, Egypt, Japan… and maybe Australia, if I could somehow find cheap airfare!
10. What makes you happy?
Watching MST3K. Reading Nancy/Ned fic. Chocolate. Cherry-flavored diet soda. Finding clothes that fit me. Receiving feedback on fic. :)
11. Are you happy right now?
I would be happy, if I didn’t have this effing head cold! Ugh.
My new questions:
1. What’s your ultimate all-time hands-down favorite dessert?
2. What do you do when you want to cheer yourself up?
3. (Up to five) OTPs you would love to see married in canon. (It’s okay if they did actually get married.)
4. What’s your favorite board game?
5. You can add one room on to your current residence. What would you put in that room/use it for?
6. Who is your favorite cartoon character?
7. Is there any kind of music you never listen to?
8. What do you always forget when you’re packing for trips?
9. You have won $25 million but have to spend it all within 48 hours. What do you buy?
10. You can pick any fictional character to have as a sibling. Which would you choose and why?
11. If you could live anywhere on Earth, where would you live?
