Poem for Friday

The above poem swiped from ghazalah. It's the last day of poetry month and I am quite sorry. I hope other people will keep posting poems periodically!

fannish5: Alternate Universe 5
1. AUs: yes please or what's the point?

Yes please in some cases, when it really makes me think about the characters and who they'd be in a different setting, though when I run across RPF I wonder why the writer didn't simply change the names and write the story as original fiction with those actors "playing" the characters instead.
2. What's the best AU you've read?
astolat's "Five Things That Never Happened To Aubrey and Maturin, Part Five...The World Turned Upside Down."
3. What's the worst AU you've read?
It involved the Voyager crew in Earth's past and Janeway being a virgin. 'Nuff said.
4. How would you like to see your fandom altered that you haven't seen yet?
I don't tend to think that way or I'd probably write it. For me the interest tends to be working around the edges of canon, not overhauling it.
5. What AU worked that you never would have expected?
There've been a couple where Aragorn took the Ring and siezed the throne of Gondor that surprised me, because I don't like darkfic and I certainly don't like evil!Aragorn. And yet it was instructive to see him fall as an ordinary man.

1. Go into your LJ's archives.
2. Find your 23rd post (or closest to).
3. Find the fifth sentence (or closest to).
4. Post the text of the sentence in your blog along with these instructions.
I'm not sure whether Katie Holmes is the worst screen kisser in the history of television or if she just doesn't like kissing the regulars on DC, but she always looked like she thought Jack and Pacey might give her cooties and her kisses with Dawson in the season premiere...let's just say I shared Television Without Pity's sense that it would be less painful to tear my eyeballs out than keep watching.
Oh my god, I hit a post about Dawson's Creek. *blush* Am running out the door to have blood drawn. Whose bright idea was it to do fasting blood work at 11? :p If I do not pass out, I should be home, and ravenous, in a little while.
