1. John John Not-John. This is the fannish equivalent of duck duck goose; the fan who is "it" goes around the outside of the circle, tapping heads and naming Jacks and Johns. John Sheppard, John Crichton, John Smith, DANIEL! This would be most amusing when somebody realized they could go around half the circle on Captain Jacks: Captain Jack (Sparrow), Captain Jack (Harkness), Captain Jack (Harkness, II), Captain Jack (O'Neill, pre-series, presumably), Captain Jack (Aubrey), Captain Jack (B5, season four), Captain Jack (the monkey), RODNEY!

2. Fannish Apples to Apples. [personal profile] thingswithwings and I are so doing this someday. Because: how awesome would apples to apples be, as a game, if we made our own fannish cards? Referencing, like, penguins! and aliens made them do it! And with little blurbs down at the bottom! It would be awesome, is what it would be. Imagine turning up, say, "aged" and getting "John Sheppard" "Methos" "We're Not Gay We Just Love Each Other" and whateverall.

Sadly, the game only works if some of the cards are B-list. In the original, this is accomplished with cards like Adam Sandler; in our version, it would be B-list tropes, which I can't think of right now. But it would be those. Also B-list characters.

You continually mess with my brain...

Your posts are continually thoughtful, imaginative, and end up chasing my brain into odd directions. I can't believe it's 7:30 in the morning, I'm in a warehouse where it is only 38 degrees, and you've made me take my gloves off to respond to a post! No, I'm not in love (yet!) LOL

Ok, since you are talking about cards, what would the current fannish Tarot deck look like? Who would be on the major arcana? WOuld the spire of Atlantis take the place of the Tower? Who would be the Fool and who would be the Magician? Which fandoms would be represented as Wands, Cups, Swords, and Pentacles?

OK, I'm putting the gloves back on and going back to work now!

[ profile] redbyrd_sgfic said she got her fish-thwap userpic from you, and that I'd like you, so I had to look at some posts.

Captain Jack! Oh, my gosh. I think I have to add you to my friends' list.
