Help A Girl Out!  
So, Tuesday the 13th is my LJ anniversary! The day, four years ago, when I made my first official LJ post! I usually like to do something on that day to celebrate - special fic, a fandom meme, let you guys ask me questions, whatever. But this year since I'm still feeling so under the weather, I was hoping you guys could help me out. I remember seeing (and answering on some of my friends' journals) a meme about 'name five things that you relate to me' and I really liked it. Maybe you guys could answer with five things that make you think of me and I can post all the answers on the 13th! (I've got a dr's appt that day, but this should be fun and easy enough!). So let's celebrate my anniversary! Come and play!

What are 5 things you associate with me? Can be a book, movie, character, person, place, memory, animal, food, plant, anything!

I'll even respond back to you with my top 5 things that I associate with you...once I actually get around to answering comments. (I'll take this opportunity to say I appreciate all the 'get well' wishes and comments you guys have been leaving me! You're the best!)

As it so happens, the 13th is also The Nephew's birthday...he'll be eight! It doesn't seem like that long ago that he was playing with his imaginary dog, Zoom Zoom, and telling me stories about what he did that day with his brother, Iceman, and now he's eight! My little man!

Five Things I Associate With You
Goofy/awesome conversations: I love it so much when our LJ conversations go in random directions, sometimes educational and sometimes hilarious or horrifying!

Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit: It's pretty great to share a love of such well-adapted books to the screen (LoTR more so than The Hobbit, where they added so much stuff), especially when there are so many pretty men in them for sighing and sometimes slashing.

Shows we squee about: Especially when it comes to TWD and AoS, every week I'm excited to see what you have to say about the episodes, and the characters, and the sick things the writers do to torment them and us.

Awesome surprises in the mail: you're super thoughtful and sweet, and when you send a card or gift it's always perfect, and perfectly uplifting.

Beta reading: I don't do it for anyone's stories but you, babe. *hugs*

Re: Five Things I Associate With You
Finally getting around to this, but here are five things I associate with you:
Spike and Dawn and/or Spike/Dawn.
The Walking Dead - omg, I need to post about my awesome TWD dream soon!
Teaching.
Rogue and Gambit and/or Rogue/Gambit.
Houses in the woods. Like seriously, people will be talking about how they want to buy land and build a a house in the country and I always think of your place and how awesome it's going to be.

Wait...that was five. But, TAHtm and apocalypse survival and writing and teen!vengers and science!bros and 1am insanity and...yeah, lots of things make me think of you!

Goofy/awesome conversations: I love it so much when our LJ conversations go in random directions, sometimes educational and sometimes hilarious or horrifying!

Yep. This. This is what I think of when I think of our friendship, especially how it took off so quickly, was because of these conversations.

Awesome surprises in the mail: you're super thoughtful and sweet, and when you send a card or gift it's always perfect, and perfectly uplifting.
Beta reading: I don't do it for anyone's stories but you, babe. *hugs*


Awwwww. <3s I thought this meme would just be like super fun and silly, but all the answers made me tear up, dammit.

Re: Five Things I Associate With You
Spike and Dawn and/or Spike/Dawn. - Ha, yes! They're a great couple, and writing about them so intensely for so long was a great experience.

The Walking Dead - omg, I need to post about my awesome TWD dream soon! - Girl, what are you WAITING FOR, OMG, GIVE ME SOME TWD!

Rogue and Gambit and/or Rogue/Gambit. - OTP forever, baby!

Houses in the woods. Like seriously, people will be talking about how they want to buy land and build a a house in the country and I always think of your place and how awesome it's going to be. - Man, it's a huge and daunting project, and I'm both thrilled and terrified that it's going to be happening. Eventually, and stuff.

Also - just participated in a friending meme, and met some really awesome new people. Come by my LJ and meet them too! :)

Five things I associate with you?

1 - Hobbits. Because I like me some hobbits, same as the next nerd, but JFC, you won't shut up about 'em! And I mean in a good way, the same way I won't shut up about Chuck Heston (to anyone outside the computer).

2 - Hyper-organization. Because you actually keep track of how many words you write, and when, and in what fandoms, where I'm all... I probably wrote something... once... or maybe twice. And then wrote something... else...

3 - Dean/Cas. Because you're one of the only people left here on LJ who like those two and you wrote the cutest fic that one time, where awesome!John has 'the talk' with Dean and gets all flustered when Dean asks what goes where with dudes :) (At least, I hope that was you. If not... eee, sorry!)

4 - South Park. Because you have relatives from Canada. And you blame them.

5 - NKOTB. Again... not sure if this was you, but I feel like it was you, who wrote a fanfic where Donnie Wahlberg married your mom...
dodger_sister: friends foreverdodger_sister on June 17th, 2014 08:56 pm (UTC)
Getting around to answering these comments, so here are five things I associate with you:
Dean/Cas!
Porn. (you always fill my NC-17 fix for me).
Angel fic. (The first fic of yours I ever read at all was a Wesley/Lindsey fic. And I specifically remember a huge fic I read of yours that was Giles/Lindsey that I loved, whenever I need good Giles fic I come to your journal)
Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure. (You have this icon that delights me every damn time it comes across my dash. Now I can't hear about this movie without thinking of you).
Wincest. (Not my general thing, but your How To Date Your Brother series will always be in my top list of alltime fics.)

Because I like me some hobbits, same as the next nerd, but JFC, you won't shut up about 'em!

LOL Their my first love. /dreamy sigh/

Hyper-organization. Because you actually keep track of how many words you write, and when, and in what fandoms, where I'm all... I probably wrote something... once... or maybe twice. And then wrote something... else...

At first I was all, "Hyper Organization, what?" but yep, I do that. You should have seen the 'daily' writing schedule I kept track of for like three months, That was insane.

you wrote the cutest fic that one time, where awesome!John has 'the talk' with Dean and gets all flustered when Dean asks what goes where with dudes :)

That was me!!! It was my 'Valentine's wee!chester Dean/Cas share a box of chocolate' fic. Awwww, that made me all happy,

South Park. Because you have relatives from Canada. And you blame them.

Idk if I have ever laughed so hard in my life.

NKOTB. Again... not sure if this was you, but I feel like it was you, who wrote a fanfic where Donnie Wahlberg married your mom...

LOL OMG, nope, not me. But you and I have talked about NKOTB, I am sure. We've talked about ridiculous 80s things that we love and this would so be on my list. I was SO into NKOTB back in the day. However, if you find out who wrote hat fic, send it my way. I MUST read it.
Denidenig37 on May 11th, 2014 04:26 am (UTC)
5 things? Hmm.

1. geek (I love that you get so passionate about stuff you love)
2. K and the physiotherapy stories (you know those are my favourites)
3. the Nephew (kid is made of win!)
4. BFF & sis (the love and loyalty of such strong relationships/bond/love, the understanding of each other, it's so rare and so admirable)
5. strength (you have gone through so much in your life but you still manage to go on forwards and think positive, being a good example, a good teacher)

You're awesome! :-D
<3

Answering the five things comments, so here are five things that make me think of you:
Art & Graphics. (I often see art for something online and think, "I wonder how denig would have done that piece." I love when you put up new pieces.)
Dragons. (Idek why. Did you do art for the dragonbigbang once? I must have really liked it.)
N0H8.
Slovakia and the Ukraine. (I watch the news coming out of the Ukraine with my mind always on you.)
SPN. J2. Sam abd Dean. Boys!!! All the things associated with that. lol

K and the physiotherapy stories (you know those are my favourites)

Why am I not surprised by this answer? LOL I'll should add that to your list too, because whenever a funny thing happens at therapy, I think, "Oh, denig would love this story!"

3. the Nephew (kid is made of win!)

Agreed.

4. BFF & sis

My sister was so delighted by this answer.

Awww, thanks, babe. This whole comment made me all teary eyed.

I answered on Tumblr but will answer again here with more. I love this meme.

1-Supernatural-The way you love this show and I think it was the first fandom we clicked about.

2-Kitties!-Your kitties, and how they're part of your home and life.

3-Lord of the Rings-The Hobbits out on the porch and lots of wonderful hobbity things.

4-Fandom-maybe this should have been first but I think of fandom stuff with you, because your love of fandom is enthusiastic and I always end up grinning when we talk.

5-Michigan/94-The drive to your place and having you as a friend in Michigan. I wish you lived closer.
dodger_sister: friends foreverdodger_sister on June 17th, 2014 09:28 pm (UTC)
Answering the five things meme so here are five things that make me think of you:

Pippin and bags. (Whenever he gets on a bag and starts scratching, I always remember how much he loved your particular bag. Too cute.)
Middle Earth. (whether that's New Zealand itself or actual Middle Earth and related things, but the rolling green hills of the country make me think of you.)
Tea. (especially when I see fannish themed tea, I think if you would like it).
James McAvoy. (No explanation needed.)
Jane Austen. (Her books, the movie adaptions and of course Becoming Jane, which I never would have watched without you talking me into it and I am so glad I did!)

Wait, that was five, but I have more! Russel Crowe, Logan Lerman, Shakespeare, RPGs and table top games, Stage acting. RP writing, Ann Arbor/Detroit, Writing, Narnia, quiet afternoons and good discussions. So many things!

1-Supernatural-The way you love this show and I think it was the first fandom we clicked about.

It so was!! And one of my favorite alltime SPN fics will always be your Halloween fic about the theater.

The Hobbits out on the porch and lots of wonderful hobbity things.

I always want to get my sister a sign that says 'No Admittance Except On Party Business" because she's made this place feel so much like Bag-end to me.

because your love of fandom is enthusiastic and I always end up grinning when we talk.

Awwww. I'm grinning now.

5-Michigan/94-The drive to your place and having you as a friend in Michigan. I wish you lived closer.

Aren't Michigan roads brutal though? I have a cousin who now lives just outside of Detroit, kind near where you were and she was just complaining about wanting to come see us more but the drive is terrible. But I do miss having you here in Michigan. I wish I could travel easier, so i could come see you!
Trigger Warning: Lifematchboximpala on May 11th, 2014 05:18 am (UTC)
1. Family love
2. Cat shenanigans
3. Fun times at therapy
4. Detroit Tigers
5. Hobbitses!
dodger_sister: friends foreverdodger_sister on June 17th, 2014 09:46 pm (UTC)
Five things meme comment, so here are five things that make me think of you:
Zombies! Always with the zombies!
J2.
Merlin. (when I see a cool Merlin thing on Tumblr, I always think of you.)
Berkeley. (Which used to only make me think of The OC, but now makes me think of you too).
Wrongecards. (you always post such hysterical ones).

Wait...I have more! Art & Graphics, mountain climbing, SuperpretendNatural (I was so shocked the first time I noticed your name in that community), conventions, Jason Manns, awesome charity fundraising, RandomActs...too many things!

Edited to say that it delighted me that you pit Detroit Tigers on my list! Detroit Rock City, baby!!

LJ anniversary! Awesome! I'll play. :)

1. X-Men. Because of things. I'm not a hundred percent right now, but I think that was what we talked about when we hijacked Annie's comment section. Which was glorious btw. :)

2. Psych. I've never seen the show, but every time I see it mentioned my first association is you. I still have that Psych t-shirt I got for free at Comic Con, and it makes me smile.

3. Cas. Just because I can't count the times we've talked about him.

4. Michigan. For reasons.

5. LJ. Because you're the only reason I go on here anymore, and because our comment conversations are awesome.

Basically I associate you with awesomeness and comics and interesting and cool stories and story telling and other good things. <3
dodger_sister: friends foreverdodger_sister on June 17th, 2014 09:54 pm (UTC)
Answering the five comment meme thing, but I already know I am not going to be able to keep this down to just five!
Dean/Cas!
M2! (is that what we hijacked Aythia's journal to talk about?)
Eliza Dushku.
Spike.
The West Wing.
Leverage. (all your fault)
Teen Wolf. (also all your fault).
Storm. (especially mohawk!Storm!)
The Hunger Games (I am so glad I forced you into finishing that series)
Poetry.
Sweden.
Silly ridiculous flailing squee.
And on and on and on....lol

X-Men. Because of things. I'm not a hundred percent right now, but I think that was what we talked about when we hijacked Annie's comment section. Which was glorious btw. :)

Ooooh, was it Wolverine? It may have been. Can you even imagine if we had never hijacked that thread? It's too terrible to even think about!

Psych. I've never seen the show, but every time I see it mentioned my first association is you.

YES! This makes me happy!

LJ. Because you're the only reason I go on here anymore, and because our comment conversations are awesome.

Awwww. We could start having conversations on Tumblr, but they would never be as good.

I associate you with smiling and laughing a lot! <3
wolfrider89wolfrider89 on September 14th, 2014 07:34 am (UTC)
M2! (is that what we hijacked Aythia's journal to talk about?)

Could be! I wonder what the original post was about?


I'm always proud to take the blame for both Leverage and Teen Wolf! :)

Mohawk!Storm is the best! I saw the reblog you did of that gorgeous art of her. So awesome! (Thinking about including her in my next tattoo in some way. Still in the thinky thoughts stage on that though)

I'm so glad we did our hijacking!

It's true, Tumblr would never be as good! Luckily, my phone has stopped fritzing every time I try to log on here, so it's all good!

I associate you with smiling and laughing a lot, too! <3
ranuaranua on May 13th, 2014 07:43 pm (UTC)
First off, of course, is Hobbits and then weirdly enough is Chloe from Smallville, but only season one or two Chloe, cos in my head that's what you look like.

Three is fanfic, which encompasses Steve and Chris and Supernatural and J2 and JDM (I suppose that's a whole list five right there isn't it? *shrugs* oh well)

Four is I can't do asterisk actions in text without thinking of that fan-freaking-tastic story you wrote where Dean writes Glee fanfic. (which reminds me, I haven't reread it in awhile, I should do that today)

Five is friendship. You are one of my first friends on lj and even though I'm a crap communicator we're still friends :D You are a lovely and sweet person my dear. Happy lj anniversary, here's to many more :-D
dodger_sister: friends foreverdodger_sister on June 17th, 2014 10:22 pm (UTC)
Answering the five things comments, so here are five things that make me think of you:
Steve. And Christian. And Steve and Christian. And Steve/Christian.
Dispatchers. (No, okay, whenever anyone ever says the word 'dispatcher' I think of you bitching about your old dispatcher and me trying to con you into writing that Steve/Chris delivery au. Like, going to the hospital by ambulance and the medic is all, "I'm on the line with dispatch," and I'm like, "heehee Steve/Christian!" while I'm laying in the ambulance.)
Comics.
Leverage.
Halloween. (You are the only person on my Flist whose decorations rival my own).
Music. (All good kinds of music, but particularly Shawn Mullins, Brett Dennen, DropKick Murphy and Needtobreathe.)
Driving. (You're one of the few people I know who loves driving as much I did).

Oops, that was more than five, lol!

weirdly enough is Chloe from Smallville, but only season one or two Chloe, cos in my head that's what you look like.

OMG, that is what I look like!!!!! I mean, Hollywood!Me is Alison Lohman (see my default icon) but if it weren't her, Ali Mack would be choice #2. That's so weird that you picked her because that's so spot on! It makes me wonder what other people picture me as. I know what you look like, so I can't play this game.

Four is I can't do asterisk actions in text without thinking of that fan-freaking-tastic story you wrote where Dean writes Glee fanfic. (which reminds me, I haven't reread it in awhile, I should do that today)

At first I was like, "What did that story have to do with asteriks?" and then I went and looked at the fic and was like, "lol omg, Dean did write with astericks a lot, ahahahha!" I swear, you keep leaving comments on that story every year and in another eight years or so, I have rolled over again to the next comment page!

You are one of my first friends on lj and even though I'm a crap communicator we're still friends :D

I like those kind of friendships where you can not talk for like two months and then randomly spew word vomit all over each other like no time has passed at all. It'd be cool to get together in RL sometime, but also I can see us maintaining this exact level of communication and friendship for the next 20 years and you'd still be one of my best friends!

(do you have an IPhone by chance? I can't text on my free phone that is on my Dad's plan but I have recently discovered that using my IPad I can text to anyone with an iPhone or IPad, so if you have an IPhone, we can randomly text each other whenever we hear a good song or whenever we think of funny fic plot or something).
