Goofing around with the fandom


Tags: , , ,
I got bored today. That is never a good thing. I took a break from CNN, CNN.com, MSNBC, BBC.com, etc. and wrote the following goofy little "poem" while chilling in my office and sitting in class. This is largely me poking fun at the crazy initials and abbreviations we use frequently that make no sense to an outsider. Please keep in mind, I suck at poetry and I was bored.


I'm sure you know, every fandom on the net
Has its own shorthand secret code.
Today I present to you this little ode,
In order to explain why I would bet
That HP and R/T maybe the craziest yet.

In the HP fandom you might ship H/G
But what exactly would you mean by that?
Harry/Ginny comes to mind right off the bat,
But in fandom they are just one possibility.
What about Hermione/George or even her with Ginny?

The HP ship of which I am the biggest fan
Is of course the R/T we all love.
But who should be the R above?
Is it DT or DT or do you want some other man?
As for me, I want to know, can Remus be a Welshman?

If for R you prefer a lovely DT,
How do you decide which DT you choose?
Is it Professor DT with facial hair to lose?
Or do you prefer the good Doctor DT
Who is a DADA-disguised DE?

This letter confusion poses one more mystery.
The RL that is the source of all my strife
Is of course my crazy Real Life.
But how much better would my life be,
If only that RL was Remus Lupin distracting me?

So, are you laughing with me, laughing at me, or just groaning and rolling your eyes?
silly
Feeling: silly

You're hysterical.

Hm...maybe I could see your actor for Remus...Though I'm a Doctor DT fancy-er myself. :)

I'm really glad you liked this. Gives me some hope that I'm not completely crazy for being amused by creating it.

You have to hear him speak. It is so totally all about his voice.

I'm telling you...David Tennant and Henry Ian Cusick from LOST -- Scottish Remus and Sirius. It would be perfect.

I thought you wanted Johnny Depp for Sirius. Are you trying to confuse me?
What's Taters, Precious?

I do, but they would never ever hire him because he's not British.

Sigh. He'd be perfect though. I wouldn't know who to look at in scenes with Remus and Sirius.

Oh man, me either. I'd be like - Wait! Too much hotness on the screen at once! I'd probably be watching the movie in Slow-Mo. Though I liked Gary Oldman's performance he just isn't my Sirius.

Wait, isn't Henry Ian Cusick the guy that played Jesus Christ in The Visual Bible: Gospel of John?
What's Taters, Precious?
mrstater at 12:57 am on 09 November 2006 (UTC) (Link)
Yes. And I felt so sareligious for thinking he was very attractive as Jesus, too...
Rachael

I don't recall the Bible ever saying Christ had to be unattractive...

That's what I was thinking! Heehee.

LOL, that's too funny. Good use of office/boring class time!
Rachael

Thanks:)

I should have used the time to finish that fic that I can't seem to end. But I think that would require more conversation then I could give while still ostensibly paying attention to my prof. so I'm content with my silly poem instead.

The fic probably would have required more attention that it would have been possible to give.

I had a random thought about it last night, I shall email you in the morning about it.
Rachael
bratty_jedi at 11:03 pm on 08 November 2006 (UTC) (Link)
Yeah. That conversation above was supposed to be concentration. I switch words all the time when trying to type and some of the time when trying to speak when I completely know better. Bloody malaprops.

I had a random thought about it last night, I shall email you in the morning about it.
That would be great. Between election results, a Spurs game, and HW, I know I'm not going to get to it tonight.

*snicker* That's great, that there. Heeheehee.

I think it was a conversation with you about DT vs DT and RL vs RL on your LJ (should I have worked in that one?) that planted the brain bug that became this. So I blame you for it ;-)

Oh noes! =P
Rachael
bratty_jedi at 3:21 am on 09 November 2006 (UTC) (Link)
You seem so concerned about my allegation.
Jordan
kileaiya at 3:33 am on 09 November 2006 (UTC) (Link)
I've probably inspired much worse than funny fandom poems. =P Well, I hope I haven't but I probably have. Heehee.

It reminded me of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTYadVjuvlo

Seems like we may have discussed this once. HP set to Billy Joel's 'We Didn't Start the Fire.'

Check it out if you haven't, it's funny.
Rachael

I've seen it. I think we talked about it when you had "We Didn't Start the Fire" on your Random Song Meme. It is pretty funny. I'm not that funny.
Jordan
kileaiya at 3:30 am on 09 November 2006 (UTC) (Link)
I had never seen that before. That's really funny.
Rachael
bratty_jedi at 3:31 am on 09 November 2006 (UTC) (Link)
Did you sing along?
Jordan
kileaiya at 3:47 am on 09 November 2006 (UTC) (Link)
I did not sing along. Though I did giggle throughout the whole thing and I got funny looks from my mum.
Rachael
bratty_jedi at 3:49 am on 09 November 2006 (UTC) (Link)
I have to admit to some disappointment about no real mention of R/T. You'd think with all the Remus/Sirius shippers being up in arms over it and general fan hatred of Tonks it could warrant some mention.
Jordan

We should make one that includes R/T. *nod*
