If I ruled the world of fandom
Taken from blktauna and fannish5

Name 5 things you would change about Fandom (overall community) or fandom (specific) if you were queen (or king) of everything.

Slightly tongue in cheek.....

1. There would be THREE distinct genres of fanfic: slash, gen AND het, and ALL stories would be labelled accordingly and appropriately.

2. Everyone would follow my credos of: 'mutual respect' and 'if you can't say anything good, say nothing at all'.

3. There would be NO partner rape, partner murder, partner beating stories - unless they were part of an undercover assignment - and no unhappy endings (I get to say what constitutes unhappy *g*). And absolutely NO, not under ANY circumstances, stories that had sex and food in the same scene/place, i.e. no smearing jam over your partner's body and licking it off.

4. Everyone would respond to LoCs, LJ or list comments on their stories.

5. Everyone would have watched at LEAST ONE episode of the show in which they intend to write BEFORE they start writing - no one will write solely from other people's fanfic.

AHHAHAHAHA!! Remind me never to tell you the grape story.

I should amend my rules to include the no fic from other people's fic! Good call!

What fandom? One of the ones we share? And title - that way I can avoid it :-)))

Wow that would be pretty much what I would do! ;-)

i.e. no smearing jam over your partner's body and licking it off.

Why would they need the jam there? Surely they could just lick their partners body? ;-)))

:-) GMTA I do like our little world :-)))

Don't ask me why! Because I do not know. You are perfectly correct of course, but .... some people do love this kind of sex act/aid ::shudders::

Indeed it's such a nice one ;-)

Ewwwww. Actually I think I have really only read a couple of fics involving food. One was Anam's which involved Altoid breath mints which wasn't too bad and I think there was a bit of a yuckier one involving strawberries in places they really shouldn't go....I like ones where they might just be eating in bed and talking but actually involving the food in the sex....not really....

Oh, yes. This is fine, breakfast in bed or supper in bed, very nice. But just as long as the food is moved away before they start making love. Jam belongs on toast, not on people's bodies!
aingeal8c From: aingeal8c Date: 17th September 2005 08:20 (UTC) (Link)
Jam belongs on toast, not on people's bodies!

It does indeed. Plus you muight not know if they even *like* jam ;-)

Hmmmm.

Ray: "Oh great now I'm going to have to take a shower."

Benny: "Why Ray?"

Ray: "Because I've got jam all over me!"

There that's how it does happen.
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 17th September 2005 10:25 (UTC) (Link)
LOL! Nice one. I like it!!
aingeal8c From: aingeal8c Date: 17th September 2005 18:51 (UTC) (Link)
LOL! Nice one. I like it!!

Thank you!

There is a sequel...

Benny: "I could lick it off you, Ray."

Ray: "No way, Benny!"

Benny: "Ah." [looks upset]

Ray: "Look you can lick me anytime you like just not with the foodstuffs okay?"

Benny: "Hmmmm they might detract from the experience, Ray"

Ray: "Exactly. So wanna share a shower?"

Benny: "Yes, Ray!"

Oh, this is lovely too - the icing on the cake, so to speak. No pun intended.

Perfect. I love it.

Ray: Benny, you're supposed to put the icing on the *cake*.

(sorry couldn't resist.)

Perfect. I love it.

ROFL. Oh, yes, I asked for that one, didn't I :-)))

You did indeed. And I was happy to oblige ;-)

Oh do I so agree. I've read two one that had melted sweets in the groin area, and one with melted chocolate eggs in the same place, yuk.

Peaches by Tauna was the exception to the rule although I did remember saying it didn't bear to think how sticky Bodie was. :-D
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 16th September 2005 20:05 (UTC) (Link)
OMG!!!

Mega yuck time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't think I've read Tauna's story. This 'thing' is my absolute hatred. Believe me when I say I'd read Sunshine every night, than read a sex/food scene! Yep, that bad!
doylebaby From: doylebaby Date: 16th September 2005 20:40 (UTC) (Link)
I don't think I've read Tauna's story.

It's in A little B and D (the first one) you might have it as it holds one of your own stories.

It's sticky and hot! *g*

when I say I'd read Sunshine every night, than read a sex/food scene! Yep, that bad!
I believe you, as Sunshine isn'a particular favourite!

And no, I'm absolutely not fond of it either, just imagining the two I mentioned made me go icky.

But you could try Donna's, I had no problem's with that one!

Nooo, I think it will squick her! Don't go ther Nikki!
;)

But thanks for the compliment!

Hear, hear to all - especially no. 5.

I have to say that the sex/food thing doesn't bother me in the slightest but I know how much you hate it - yet having said that, I don't think I've ever read a story in *any* fandom where it occurred!

Sod's Law, innit?
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 16th September 2005 20:36 (UTC) (Link)
Thank you, ma'am.

There are at least a couple in Pros (no, I can't remember what they are called). One is by one of my favourite authors too!!!!!!

5. Everyone would have watched at LEAST ONE episode of the show in which they intend to write BEFORE they start writing - no one will write solely from other people's fanfic.

I have to admit, I agree with everything on this list... though this one gave me pause. Now, I understand the kind of horrific dren that can occur if someone tried writing just fom other peoples fic and didn't get into the canon - but I DO have a story from personal experience that kinda puts the lie to that.

Way back when, I clicked on a link on crack_van to a gorgeous story called "Yet to my Fancied Sight" by Nancy Brown - and I immediately fell in love with the Stark/Zhaan pairing for Farscape - a show I'd seen ONE episode for (which didn't even HAVE Stark in it) and had been tracking down ever since.

A short while later, I'd still never seen any more Farscape but I'd read all the S/Z I could get my hands on (which is still depressingly little for a canon pairing - and I don't mean 'it's so obvious they're doing it' canon, I mean ACTUAL, ON SCREEN 'I love you' canon; it's most neglected het canon pairing in history), I was struck by the muse to do something I can only look back on and call a study in OTPs - a drabble collection of couples, canon and non that I was particularily fond of - one of whom was Stark/Zhaan. Despite the fact I'd NEVER seen ANY canon material for S/Z, a writer I immensely respected, astrogirl2 praised that snippet and demanded more! I told her that I really didn't know what came over me and I was loath to write anything I'd never seen the source material for and she responded by sending me the ENTIRE run of Farscpe on VHS, from New Mexico, to Canada, no postage owing. "Pay me back by converting others and writing fic" she said, and I've been doing both like the dickens for six months now.

Now, I suppose the happy ending comes as much from my refusal to write based on fic alone as from me violating that in the first place - but I still think of it as the exception that proves the rule.

Oh, and I'm sorry I spamed your journal with a pointless anecdote, and I'll be friending you with my NON-fic journal as soon as I'm signed in there later today. I have ficathon-running things to do first.

Lovely to see you here - please don't apologise. Oh, great. I was going to friend you too - so that's good. And nice to see you joined RP.

Now, I understand the kind of horrific dren that can occur if someone tried writing just fom other peoples fic and didn't get into the canon - but I DO have a story from personal experience that kinda puts the lie to that.

I admit there are always exceptions to every rule, and it's not as though I haven't seen some fic that I love that I later discover was written solely from other fiction. However, having experienced a lot in Pros, where it's clear from the factual canon errors (i.e. eye colour, names, etc.) that has clearly been written from other fiction, it does normally make me shudder to think of it.

she responded by sending me the ENTIRE run of Farscpe on VHS, from New Mexico, to Canada, no postage owing. "Pay me back by converting others and writing fic" she said, and I've been doing both like the dickens for six months now.

I am still never ceased to be amazed by the generosity of folk in fandom. Perfect strangers doing things like this, it's amazing. All too often we talk about 'real life friends', but often I stop and think 'hang on, my fandom friends do more for me than my RL ones'. Fandom, whilst having its issues and problems is still a rare place to be. If you wish I am more than happy to add this pair to RP. Although it's mainly slash, rare het pairs are more than welcome.

Now, I suppose the happy ending comes as much from my refusal to write based on fic alone as from me violating that in the first place - but I still think of it as the exception that proves the rule.

What a lovely story, and it is indeed the exception. As much of it, as you say, though is your attitude. So many people have the 'so, what, why should I watch the show?' attitude, and that tends to come over.

Your story was lovely - and I didn't find it pointless at all. Thanks. And good luck with the ficathon!
