tagged by both judearaya and likearumchocolatesouffle - does that mean I should list ten things, technically? :P

1) I have a reading speed of 900 wpm with an 80% comprehension rate, according to the online test I took years ago. which is cool and all, but not all that marketable, really.

2) my parents had to get a kid-leash for me when I was little, despite having always thought they were terrible and inhumane - I thought it was the best game ever to run away and hide, apparently, and (at the time) had no fear of strangers. (oddly, as I got older, I got way clingier and more anxious around strangers and heights and well everything)

3) I read One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich when I was eight or so for no other reason than when I asked my mom what she was reading, she said it was boring/too hard for me.

I don’t remember any of it now, but apparently my mom quizzed me and I actually had a fairly good grasp on what happened, if maybe not like, the underlying themes and shit.

4) when I was in third grade, my best friend started teaching me hebrew on the bus (and I mean, legit teaching; she wrote me a glossary and worksheets and gave me homework and everything)

(god we were fucking nerds)

Unfortunately, I remember diddlysquat at this point.

5) I have a crazy mad desire to go to build-a-bear and disappointment that I’ve never done so, but also am too terrified of the emotional commitment it would mean to actually go an do it - what if I didn’t love it properly once I’d made it? how do you choose a stuffed animal to be yours, let alone MAKE one?? ABORT ABORT ABORT

sorry, guys, you already have heard most of my interesting stories, I think.

I tag arrowsforpens, persephonesidekick, poeticprinciple, daltoneering, frumiousme, and anyone else who hasn’t been tagged yet, if you’re up for it <3

arrowsforpens asked: B, M, Y

B: a pairing you initially didn’t consider but someone changed your mind.

oh god, Kate, this is not a question you in particular want to be asking me so many pairings so many fucked up pairings AHEM but besides all of the o.O ones that I read because of excellent authors and then got hooked on, I guess Emma/Regina (OuaT).

did not see that coming, but oh my god am I a sucker for co-parenting and accidental domesticity

M: a person who got you into a fandom and what fandom they pulled you in to.

well. it depends on how you define being in a fandom. I’ve been immersed in multiple fandoms for over a decade now, but glee’s really the first one I’d actually consider myself actively a member of the fandom.

as far as reading fics and having feels goes, though, copperbadge and his writerly circle at the time hooked me on Stargate: Atlantis back when they started writing SGA fic without my ever having seen an episode. 

that’s how I find a lot of new ships.

Y: a fandom you’re in but have no ships from.


you know, I’m going to go ahead and say Supernatural, because hell yes I read destiel and even wincest (i know, i know, sorry kate) but at the end of the day what I’m in it for is the fucked up codependency of the winchester’s brotherly relationship.

I also read but don’t have particular attachments to most DCU pairings.
