Meme: Interests

Got my list from satyrnfive

Comment on this post. I will choose seven interests from your profile and you will explain what they mean and why you are interested in them. Post this along with your answers in your own journal so that others can play along.

Well, I love books. I've been reading since they taught me how in school and couldn't stop. My mom gave up telling my sister and me to go to bed when she discovered we would go to bed but not sleep. We would each have a flash light and a book under our respective covers so the light didn't shine in the hallway and signal the parental units that we were still up. Course now I probably read more fanfic than actual books, but I still pick up a book now and then.

I totally blame the awesomeness that is Jared and Jensen on my manip kick. That and I wanted to brush up my Photoshop skills that were sliding down. I'm a graphic designer trained website designer that does way too much other crap at work to spend time just creating in Photoshop and playing with what can be done. So I use manips as my "it's not for work, there's no deadline and I can do whatever the hell I want" outlet. I'd like to think that I have improved over the course of my Supernaturally Twisted collection.

Science Fiction
What's not to like. I've always been drawn to sci-fi shows and books over any other type.

Star Wars
Sorry, got lost thinking about the Family Guy Star Wars ep I watched last night... Anyway, my first memory of Star Wars is the toys. My older brother had many of them and it was a war in order to get the chance to play with them. Of course my sister had the two Leia figures, so I had to fight her for those. But Wicket the Ewok was mine, all mine! Then came the Star Wars books. I got into them and then the movies about the same time and it was all down hill from there. In college, I even died my short hair blond and dressed as Luke for Halloween... Me and a friend were put in a Star Wars Trivia Pursuit face off and between the two of us, we missed like 6-7 out of 300+ questions. I even had Yoda painted on my high school graduation cap and in my Valedictorian speech titled "The ABC's to Life After Graduation", letter D was Do or Do Not, There is No Try. Yeah, I'm that dorky.

Tara Maclay from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. After Xander, Tara would be the next BtVS character I would choose to write because I think I can get inside her head. There's so much you can do with Tara and I love her calm nature. Tara makes me happy.

I think my first experience with Terminator was watching things blow up and then ducking back to bed after I snuck out of my room to see what my older brother was watching that I wasn't allowed to. I actually didn't get into the Terminator movies until after college. Then they grew on me; yes, all three of them. I mainly think it's because I have this awesome crossover that I *will* write one day with Xander and the Terminator characters. I have 10 chapters planned and a potential off-shoot story involving Faith and Jericho set in the same verse. I'm ambitious.

Twisting the Hellmouth
AKA TTH. I think I made it to TTH from a link in someone's fic on FF.net. That was back when it was still on moonlit-paths or something like that. Then TTH hooked me in and I never left. Now, I somehow got to be a mod and help out with the plans on the COA (which is kickstarting soon). No fanfic site can top TTH!
