Warm Fuzzies All Up in My Grill, Yo  
You know, for a day that occurred after I had an incredibly small amount of sleep today has been *spectacular*. I got off work early because my boss rocks, came home, took a nap and spent the day cleaning my room and chatting and writing and reading and basically doing very little of social value other than giggle because bexless is so funny and dude(s)? She's a Marvelverse geek too. She read *Alpha Flight*! The happy I got from that really can't be explained in words. I would be forced into using numbers.

Alpha Flight makes me happy for several reasons. A) First openly gay superhero was Jean-Paul Baubier, I do believe. Jean-Paul rocks. B) The storyline of this comic involves shamanism, aliens, elves, valhalla and a seperate world of dreams. It's totally *weird.* C) One of the characters, Walter Landowski, is in an established relationship with a woman when he gets trapped in the body *of* a woman. Talk about your gender confusion there, folks. He gets switched back to being a man, and really? I think he's probably got to have one of the most interesting story lines I've ever read. Walter, I heart you.

Can I just take a minute to say how much I *adore* the Smallville fandom? Seriously. Just...love oozing out of my pores for it. Everyone has been *so nice*. I started off in a pretty restrictive fandom (I shall not speak it's name...) where slash was a no-no and it was all either action/adventure or romance of the angst-laden-sigh-courtly-love-why-are-you-out-of-my-reach-woe-is-me variety and really? I'm just not that kind of girl, y'all. Ain't my style. Smallville, you feel like home. *hugs the fandom and gives it a lollipop, for good measure*

And hey, check it out, my beta (who is amazing and should be adored by everyone, *everyone*) posted smut! Involving ice cream! Yay! Go read it at lyra_sena's page! It's called 'Vanilla Cone With Sprinkles, Please' and while you're there? Check out 'By the Rivers Dark'. *loves Lyra*

Also. My livejournal is ugly. Can someone help me purty it up?

*eyes you*

You weren't an Alias fan, were you?

*g*

I shall not speak the name of the Fandom of Doom, but if I were to, it wouldn't be Alias. I've never seen that show, though I've heard over and over again how good it is. Not particularly slash friendly, eh?
Celli: OTPcelli on June 14th, 2003 08:36 pm (UTC)
a) it rocks.

b) well, it wasn't. *grins* *evilly* I wrote, like, the fourth slash story *ever* in that fandom. With the pretty boys featured in my icon.

Well, one's partially obscured but the other's awfully pretty. *sigh* Oh, if only I had television. And good for you, writing slash where there was none to begin with! That must have earned you a flame or two...
Adoable Frunklyra_sena on June 15th, 2003 05:46 am (UTC)
oohhh, Celli, you write Alias slash? *runs to read*

I wrote a slash story in the Aforementioned Fandom of Doom, and was *heavily* flamed, thus signaling my departure...

Alpha Flight. I love Alpha Flight, and of course Jean-Paul is wonderful. Isn't it fun to find Marvel fans all over the place?

I love it too that the comic has scenes set in Ottawa. Which is silly but there you have it.
pure FORESHADOWINGnifra_idril on June 14th, 2003 08:37 pm (UTC)
Yes, it is! Seriously, I've come across only *maybe* a handful of Alpha Flight fans, and to find two in one day? Lightening shouldn't strike twice, man. I think it's because I'm in the US. But I'm going to take a wild guess that you're from Ottawa...

fajrdrakofajrdrako on June 15th, 2003 04:29 am (UTC)
Yup, you guessed it. Ottawa resident, Ottawa born and bred.... When I walk past Parliament Hill I often think, with a smile, of Department H underneath.

Alpha Flight! Here's another fan. (Heh. I had a little crush on Northstar years ago. Of *course* he turned out to be gay...*g*)

Heh - we're a secret cabal!
