IDK if anyone else thinks this would even be a remotely good idea, but here goes:

Sometimes I find it inspiring to try to engage with a trope that, for whatever reason, turns me off, or something otherwise popular that I am kind of lukewarm about. It forces me to think—do I not like this trope because I haven’t considered all of the possibilities? Is there something about the way I’ve seen it handled that just doesn’t ping my interest? Am I not giving it a fair chance? Can I play with it/subvert it?

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with disliking tropes, just like there’s nothing wrong with liking them. I don’t think everyone has to give everything a chance. But I am wondering how many people out there find the idea of a meme dedicated to grappling with ideas you hate/dislike/are ambivalent about/just think “WTF is the big deal???” in any way stimulating. You would simply pick one (or more) tropes and write, draw, or—basically just do something with it.

Considerations... )

 Give me a character or a pairing (or both) and I will tell you three tidbits of my personal headcanon for them.

I'm sure there are some ships I'm forgetting, too.


1. Think of up to 20 ships you support.
2. List them using descriptions of the characters involved rather than their names.
3. Have your f-list guess as many of the ships as they can.
4. Fandom hints will be given if asked in the comments.

HINT: 6 of these are slash, one is femslash, and two are het.

1. The con man and the destroyer of worlds
2. The young despot and his speechwriter
3. The exiled patriot and the greenhorn Garak and Bashir, guessed by [ profile] crowdog66
4. A guy who likes lanterns and someone who likes to pull his figurative pigtails Arthur and Eames, guessed by [ profile] yjudaes
5. The irritable lumberjack and the pretty boy
6. The dutiful girl and the flighty broad Kanaya and Rose, guessed by [ profile] gelbwax
7. The doubting ex-monk and the one who dreams of the devil
8. The resistance fighter and a collaborator who finally decides that enough's enough
9. The jazz fan and the ex-pot dealer

In honor of All Hallow's Eve, I'm inviting trick-or-treaters to my 'door'. Comment "trick-or-treat" to this post and...well, you know the drill. Treats can be anything that strikes my fancy (pics of fave actors or pairings, one sentence fics, graphics, a song, a few words why I'm glad to have you on my flist, etc. etc.). The more "houses" to visit the more fun it'll be, so go ahead, open your journal and help spread the fun!

(Since all the stores in my town are closed and I cannot stuff myself with fun-sized goodies, distract me by letting me give you things.)
