YAY, TEAM WHIMSY!!! *waves pom-poms around hysterically*

I'm so excited that this train has finally left the station, and I swear we have the most fabulous team ever invented. We are going to crush Reality with our magical powers!

Prompts go out next Monday, July 14th, and I have a bunch of (hopefully fun) things to keep us occupied until then. I'm going to be spamming you with polls and posts over the next few days, but for now, I just wanted to say HELLO! WELCOME! HOORAY! *more pom-poms*

I think we should start with a little getting-to-know-you party. (Yeah, I'm shameless. I stole the idea from last year.)

Our official team roster is as follows:

First string:

[livejournal.com profile] catwalksalone
[livejournal.com profile] caersmane
[livejournal.com profile] aingeal8c
[livejournal.com profile] elementalv
[livejournal.com profile] etcetera_cat
[livejournal.com profile] slidellra
[livejournal.com profile] simplystars
[livejournal.com profile] dessert_first
[livejournal.com profile] alex51324
[livejournal.com profile] lamentables
[livejournal.com profile] umbrella_half
[livejournal.com profile] green_grrl
[livejournal.com profile] spuffyduds

Backups:

[livejournal.com profile] torra
[livejournal.com profile] capt_spork
[livejournal.com profile] miss_zedem

Is that not the most beautiful list you've EVER SEEN? I honestly couldn't be happier with our team!!! \o/

And I hope you'll all be willing to answer a few VERY SERIOUS questions in comments.

1. How long have you been in the DS6D fandom?

2. What's one thing you really like about your own writing?

3. Please give us a link to your stories?

4. Why did you choose Team Whimsy?

5. Please rec us one of your favorite "whimsical" stories?

6. What's one fun/goofy/random thing you'd like us all to know about you?

7. And the burning question: how magical are our boys, REALLY?

Okay, that's about all I've got this afternoon.

OH! And I encourage you (if you haven't already) to go and snag some of the delightful Team Whimsy icons that were made for the Icon Challenge. Don't forget to let the icon-makers know just how fabulous they are! The Team Whimsy icons won that challenge in an almost ridiculous landslide. \o/

If I could touch the tip of my nose with my tongue I think I'd wonder around all day smearing nutella on it just to check I could still do it. My spellcheck corrects 'nutella' to 'Stella'. Licking Stella off my nose provokes some interesting images.

Z! I AM SO EXCITED!!!! *twirls you lots and lots*

1. How long have you been in the DS6D fandom? Um. Two years? And a bit? I think I started reading when I started rewatching in April 2006 and wrote my first fic in June. But it was a sloooooow start.

2. What's one thing you really like about your own writing? Look. I'm British. I can't blow my own trumpet, my cheeks will fall off. OK. So. Maybe my humour? I DON'T KNOW, THIS IS HARD. *cries*

3. Please give us a link to your stories? Yes. Yes I will. Here are my dS fic memories (which I will go and update once I've posted this, la la la) or you can find fewer of them here at my website.

4. Why did you choose Team Whimsy? Have you met me? Please see banner. I love fairy tales, magical realism, and all that kind of stuff and I adore putting the boys into off-kilter situations. It pleases me.

5. Please rec us one of your favorite "whimsical" stories? Ah. No? Unless you want something in another fandom entirely. No. Wait! There's Fledgling by [livejournal.com profile] llassah which is incredible wing!fic. I love it so hard. It's Ray/Ray. My boys! Also When Night Falls On The City by [livejournal.com profile] lordessrenegade - FKV and zombies. Win.

6. What's one fun/goofy/random thing you'd like us all to know about you? I spend FAR too much time doodling cartoons of Fraser and the Rays getting up to shenanigans. Especially in staff meetings.

7. And the burning question: how magical are our boys, REALLY? EXTREMIARMUS!

1. How long have you been in the DS6D fandom? I honestly don't know. I did this last year, so... Longer than that.

2. What's one thing you really like about your own writing? It's...a bit different? Usually short enough to not get bored by, and usually odd.

3. Please give us a link to your stories? Sorry, I pulled most of them down. My fic for last years DS Match is still up though.

4. Why did you choose Team Whimsy? Because I have no idea what this "reality" thing is that they were talking about.

5. Please rec us one of your favorite "whimsical" stories? I would, but... I don't really know. It's too much pressure!

6. What's one fun/goofy/random thing you'd like us all to know about you? Um, everything about me really. I am unbelievably serious, and yet I find everything insanely hilarious. Go figure.

7. And the burning question: how magical are our boys, REALLY? So magical that it pains me to look at them sometimes.

1. How long have you been in the DS6D fandom?

Oooo 4 years now...*feels old*

2. What's one thing you really like about your own writing?

Banter because everybody tells me so. Also that's pretty much all my writing is.

3. Please give us a link to your stories?

Well I have a tag for my fic. As I have not updated my website in like tweo years...

http://aingeal8c.livejournal.com/tag/fic

4. Why did you choose Team Whimsy?

Well out it this way I have written much fic with Ray as a dragon, I've plenty of AU series, and then there's the spirit beaver thing...put simply I love to write whimsy. I enjoy reading whimsy. Yay whimsy.

5. Please rec us one of your favorite "whimsical" stories?

Oooo I'm going to have to go witha really old fic Siren Song by Manna (http://www.squidge.org/dsa/archive/drama/sirensong.html) because Fraser as a mermaid! And Deif as a seal! And Ray Vecchio vacationing in Canada. It's very sweet.

6. What's one fun/goofy/random thing you'd like us all to know about you?

I can wiggle my ears. It took me many years to perfect this.

7. And the burning question: how magical are our boys, REALLY?

So magical that they could fill the sky with sparkly joy every night.

The Backup Pokes Her Nose In

Date: 2008-07-09 09:02 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] torra.livejournal.com
Ya know, as a backup, I'm kinda torn between this stage of: "Gee, I hope someone has to drop out so I can step up and try to contribute past cheerleading," and "ZOMG, please don't let anyone drop out, all these names are incredible!!!" and then kinda falling into a puddle of fangirl goo at the sight of this incredible team.

1. How long have you been in the DS6D fandom? Since S3 was still airring on US TV, though I didn't get into the DS fandom on-line at that time because it was right in the middle of the Ray Wars and I got chased off. But I came back about a year or two after that and never really left.

2. What's one thing you really like about your own writing? I am absurdly proud of my dialogue, I will admit. I may not be able to spell the words, but I can have what 'em peoples call "abilitiz ta hav 'em speek'n gud". ::G:: ::winks::

3. Please give us a link to your stories? Eep. Uh, okay, most of my stuff has been long since eaten by the Internet Gods, but my more recent stuff can be found in my LJ Fic Tag (http://torra.livejournal.com/tag/fic).

4. Why did you choose Team Whimsy? Because this show has crack as cannon? How can you not? I love these boys so much, and how is it Ray does not have Wings in the episodes themselves? And why didn't Fraser just admit he was an elf in episode One and lay all the inappropriate speculation to rest?

5. Please rec us one of your favorite "whimsical" stories? Uh...can I edit this one after I've had a few hours of sleep? I set my alarm so I could try to join this (glad I did! Four minutes to fill up both teams, my god! Woot!) and so all I'm getting is "....uuuh...fic good?"

6. What's one fun/goofy/random thing you'd like us all to know about you? Well, I'm pagan (youngest priestess in the state of Washington), we're the religion that bases our cannon out of the crack other religions throw out? ::big grin:: Here we write about Fraser being an elf, in my home life, I really do know and elf named Fraser? ::winks:: (Well, okay, not really, but he could be named Fraser....he has a hat!)

7. And the burning question: how magical are our boys, REALLY? So Magical, this team sold out in three and a half minutes flat!!! \_____O_____/ <----thiiiiis much magic here

I was totally hovering at the keyboard and almost burned dinner waiting for the post to show up so I wouldn't miss signing up. Slidellra brought me back from a LJ break for this, so I couldn't miss it.

And Ray does have wings. You just have to squint and twist at the right angle to see them. REALLY. ;)

*flaily-jumpy-twirling*

Z! How very, very excited am I? WITHOUT TEXTUAL RENDERING (or, y'know, even the regular plaster kind of wall rendering. My EEE of triumph at the sign ups made well have done structural damage to my house, I'm just sayin')

1. How long have you been in the DS6D fandom?
Oh, cripes. Well, I lurked like an extremely accomplished lurking thing from the beginning of 2005, but didn't actually pop my writing cherry until the summer of 2006, when I jumped feet first into [livejournal.com profile] getfraserlaid. Low pressure writing. I've... heard of that.

2. What's one thing you really like about your own writing?
What [livejournal.com profile] catwalksalone said, omg. Um, although I guess I sort of like my use of language sometimes. And the odd POVs I seem to find (Turtles are entirely valid narrators, I'll have you know).

3. Please give us a link to your stories?
They're floating around in assorted places (and I keep on finding myself when I accidentally end up on del.ici.ous because of something else and it's really kind of weird to me), but the pretty-much-complete list of my dS stuff is here (http://etcetera-cat.tripod.com/id57.html). Z's recent birthday fic (involving turtles) will be up there as soon as I stop pouting about the prospect of html coding.

4. Why did you choose Team Whimsy?
Because reality doesn't let turtles or wolves narrate and we therefore do not have a good working relationship. Also, magic and fantasy and sparkly improbability make me happy and are significant themes in all of the fandoms that I've stuck around in for any length of time. Also, taking part in ds_match last year was So. Much. Fun. and I got interact with some truly awesome people.

5. Please rec us one of your favorite "whimsical" stories?
Oh, lordy, there's lots! Sperenza's About a Dog, Nos's Wings of Desire (even if she is on That Other Team), pretty much every entry in [livejournal.com profile] ds_flashfiction's Superpowers Challenge... I could go on for a long, long while.

6. What's one fun/goofy/random thing you'd like us all to know about you?
No matter how outlandish an account of my working day my LJ contains, the truth will always be stranger.

7. And the burning question: how magical are our boys, REALLY?
So magical that they make Merlin look like a member of That Other Team!

1. How long have you been in the DS6D fandom?
Coming up on two years this August. At least, that's when I got an LJ and started writing, though I lurked for a little while before that.

2. What's one thing you really like about your own writing?
It makes me feel good. All shiny and proud and "I made this!"

3. Please give us a link to your stories?
Here (http://slidellra.livejournal.com/20484.html).

4. Why did you choose Team Whimsy?
It was tough! I like reality okay, too. But whimsy is fun and I like fun in the summertime.

5. Please rec us one of your favorite "whimsical" stories?
Um... Gun, with Occasional Kangaroo: A Love Story (http://home.teleport.com/~punkm/gun.html). Go, go kangaroo!

6. What's one fun/goofy/random thing you'd like us all to know about you?

OK, firstly, we're clearly going to win. Secondly, yey! Thirdly, darn you, HTML. Fourthly, no, really. (How much do I suck? <----------> this much.)

1. How long have you been in the DS6D fandom? A few years as a lurker, then maybe one and a half/two as a writer.

2. What's one thing you really like about your own writing? Can I play the Brit card too? (Tea, anyone?) Uh... I like some of the words I use?

3. Please give us a link to your stories? One snippet here (http://community.livejournal.com/ds_snippets/68123.html), another here (http://community.livejournal.com/ds_snippets/71245.html), and my backup fic for the last match here (http://community.livejournal.com/ds_flashfiction/587982.html).

4. Why did you choose Team Whimsy? Because our show and our boys are just so damn whimsical! I mean, sure, realism is OK, but one of the (many) awesome things that just keeps me coming back to dS is the use of magical realism - dead!Bob, Turnbull (c'mon, he's hardly normal...) hypnosis, men turning into ravens, lip reading half-wolves and superhero Mounties. I love it. How could I not?!

5. Please rec us one of your favo(u)rite "whimsical" stories? I'm gonna need to get back to you guys on that one. I like everything. And then put everything in my memorable entries. Let me wade through the bajillion and one awesome dS stories and then give you an answer =)

6. What's one fun/goofy/random thing you'd like us all to know about you? I've eaten potentially deadly blowfish (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fugu). It's kinda like expensive chicken.

3. Please give us a link to your stories? Index here (http://green-grrl.livejournal.com/25183.html). Most DS/6D stories part of last year's Match!

Hello! I finaly went to bed after signups and slept the clock around. But I'm up now, and here are my answers:


1. How long have you been in the DS6D fandom? Let's see....I posted The Minute After in draft on March 6, and I'd probably been watching for a couple of weeks before that, so let's say, almost five months.

2. What's one thing you really like about your own writing? I'm very fast at it? It keeps me off the streets? Dunno.

3. Please give us a link to your stories? Here is my LJ's Due South tag: http://alex51324.livejournal.com/?tag=due+south . I think I have a couple of flshfics that aren't on there, as well. There's also lots of House stuff (for Serious Whimsy, try the "teddy" and "plot" tags), and links to my old Harry Potter fic are on there somewhere.

4. Why did you choose Team Whimsy? I had meant to go for Team Reality, and then changed my mind at the last second. I think cat's banner had something to do with it.

5. Please rec us one of your favorite "whimsical" stories? I second everybody else's recs. I'll get back to you if I think of something to add.

6. What's one fun/goofy/random thing you'd like us all to know about you? I live in a bustling multispecies household that includes three dogs, two cats, one mouse, and one human being.

7. And the burning question: how magical are our boys, REALLY? Ever so!

I am Irish and Catholic so I should burn in hell for even thinking about men having hot sex, but I've always liked to go against the grain. ^_^

1. How long have you been in the DS6D fandom? As a writer and active fan, maybe a year and half? But I've read and loved the stories for years. I've been an active Jossverse writer for four years.

2. What's one thing you really like about your own writing? Well, I like to just thonk the reader into the middle of the story whenever I can, trying for clarity of setting and any new characters with an economy of words. Learned the skipping-dry-stuff trick from [livejournal.com profile] eliade's stories and DVD commentary tracks. If it works, the credit goes to her.

3. Please give us a link to your stories? Damn, it looks like I've forgotten to organize… everything. Uh, here (http://www.livejournal.com/tools/memories.bml?user=dessert_first&keyword=my+stories&filter=all) is the non-dS stuff. Here (http://dessert-first.livejournal.com/tag/due+south) is the dS stuff in my LJ. And here (http://dessert-first.livejournal.com/25878.html) is the dS stuff from last year, because it's not all in my LJ. How did things get so messy in there?!

4. Why did you choose Team Whimsy? It was a tough choice between teams, but I just had this really strong yen to write something completely different from anything else I've ever done, really weird and out there.

5. Please rec us one of your favorite "whimsical" stories? Oh, man, I laughed so much at Sprat's Queer Luck (http://www.crocolanthus.com/queer-luck.htm). Genius.

Heh, have you SEEN how British our team is? 6 of us at last count out of 14 + 3 back ups. 33% Brit! What does that say about whimsy, that's what I want to know.

1. How long have you been in the DS6D fandom? Started watching in January of 2007 and writing in February of 2007.

2. What's one thing you really like about your own writing? Hmmm. I think I do okay with the voices.

3. Please give us a link to your stories? Here you go. (http://spuffyduds.livejournal.com/67842.html?mode=reply) There's kind of a lot. These boys, they make my brain explode.

4. Why did you choose Team Whimsy? Because I did Team Angst last year and I would like to not depress my own SELF this year.

5. Please rec us one of your favorite "whimsical" stories? The Cetacean Situation (http://littera-abactor.livejournal.com/2701.html), by [livejournal.com profile] littera_abactor and [livejournal.com profile] makesmewannadie. It's a crossover with Spider-Man. Doctor Octopus makes an appearance. There's a sex scene with tentacles. It's REALLY HOT. I'm not even kidding.

6. What's one fun/goofy/random thing you'd like us all to know about you? Once when I had a concussion I kept reciting the whole of "Jabberwocky" to prove to everyone that I was FINE, REALLY. It didn't work.

7. And the burning question: how magical are our boys, REALLY? They are so magical Tinkerbell believes in THEM.

Crap. Am I the last to chime in? Sorry about that.

1. How long have you been in the DS6D fandom?

[livejournal.com profile] malnpudl suckered me into reading fic in early 2006, and I started writing in May 2006 (after she viciously sent me DVDs to watch--she deserves to be punished, especially since it looks like she's on Team Reality).

2. What's one thing you really like about your own writing?

I think I do a pretty good job of plotting out a story.

3. Please give us a link to your stories?

Here you go (linked to the due South section, though the page holds my full index): http://www.elementalvision.org/index.html#ds

We won't talk about how far out of date my site is, okay?

4. Why did you choose Team Whimsy?

Reality is too intrusive in my life right now. I need whimsy, even if it ends up being on the dark side. [shifty eyes]

5. Please rec us one of your favorite "whimsical" stories?

I can't find the link, but there are (were?) three stories about Ray K's evil glasses -- the ones that allowed him to see evil of the Lovecraftian variety. Can't remember the author, but I do remember the sense of creeping horror.

6. What's one fun/goofy/random thing you'd like us all to know about you?

Um...do I have to answer?

7. And the burning question: how magical are our boys, REALLY?

I think they've all been through too much not to be fully open to the world around them.

In other words, LOTS!

Umm... better late than never? *g*

1. How long have you been in the DS6D fandom? A little over a year now. :)

2. What's one thing you really like about your own writing? When I finish a story and think it's not bad...? /o\

3. Please give us a link to your stories? due South is here (http://stars-fic.livejournal.com/tag/due+south)

4. Why did you choose Team Whimsy? I was all angstified last time, which was faboo, but I have a few things I'd like to write that are definitely whimsical in nature and I'm in the mood for something lighter (at least from the writing perspective, cos I still love me some angst &hearts)... it was SO HARD to choose, OMG. !

5. Please rec us one of your favorite "whimsical" stories? The Turtle fic that [livejournal.com profile] etcetera_cat just wrote, and [livejournal.com profile] lamentables' penguin pilgrimage fic are my all-time favorites. But also Mountie on Board (http://community.livejournal.com/ds_flashfiction/87342.html) and pretty much any Turtle-Dief or Turtle/Dief ficlet out there. And I would also add Punk's Gun, With Occasional Kangaroo because I personally find kangaroos to be quite whimsical. :D

6. What's one fun/goofy/random thing you'd like us all to know about you? Umm. I have an icon titled "whimsical basset"...? ::points up::

7. And the burning question: how magical are our boys, REALLY? As magical as they wanna be. Oh YES. \o/
