I don't really believe in coincidence so it seems like fate that a day after meeting [livejournal.com profile] oddlyfamiliar for the first time I met the other part of our fandom OT3 [livejournal.com profile] hsapiens.

I remember the day clearly. It was quite early and I was browsing my flist when I saw these gorgeous icons. They were clear, crisp images with lovely vivid colours and were just the sort of icons I was aspiring to make myself. I snagged some, and it happened that [livejournal.com profile] hsapiens was on LJ at the same time and we got a nice comment conversation going about which of Misha's body parts we preferred. We friended each other and not long after that I requested someone to pick the Britishisms out of my [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang and she volunteered. Little did I know it was her first J2 fic.

And thus we established my corrupting influence ;)

She said she had a Twitter but only used it to follow a few celebs. Her tweet count is now over 22,000. She said she didn't IM because it was too distracting. We now chat on MSN pretty much every day.

I am pleased to count her amongst closest fandom friend. Not only is she an extremely talented icon maker, she's a fantastic beta, she's got a wicked sense of humour and will always pander to my demands for icons (even Wincest ones).

If you love [livejournal.com profile] hsapiens as I do please leave a comment and show your appreciation.

Our threesome love in gif form:

One year ago today an amazing thing happened. The mods of [livejournal.com profile] rec_hymenated were considering closing up shop when both I and [livejournal.com profile] oddlyfamiliar offered to take it over at the same time. It was suggested we run it together and little did I know at the time that I would be modding a comm with someone who would come to be one of my bestest friends.

Seriously, I can't even imagine not knowing [livejournal.com profile] oddlyfamiliar. Not only is she an amazing co-mod who shares my anal obsession (heh!) with organising things but she's also an amazing person. She's always there with wise advice when I need it, whether it be fandom related or RL related, she's got an awesome sense of humour, writes hot porn, is incredibly supportive and is a kick-ass zombie hunter ;)

So if you are fortunate enough to know her drop her a comment here and tell her how awesome she is.

ILU BB! Don't ever change

Sorry it's not Dean/Cas but, you know ;)

So. Castiel.

Hee! Merlin meetup was fun although [livejournal.com profile] littlehollyleaf and I spent most of it sat in a corner talking about Supernatural. Castiel to be more specific, with a bit of Sam and Dean on the side. Hee! It was fun.

Between the two of us, plus added comments from [livejournal.com profile] yavannauk and [livejournal.com profile] complicat we pretty much put everyone off ever watching Smallville. I consider this a service to fandom. I mean I'm sure you all know how much I loved the show for a long time, but I don't think any other show has caused me as much pain as that one.

There was also pie porn. I feel Dean would approve.

Oh, and there was also discussion of tentacle rape, fics where people get turned into inanimate objects (does anyone want the bandom hair straightener fic?) and other silliness. It was fun.

Oh, and of course the slash dragon cake!

Friends-locked as per the last meetup post. I never know who is and isn't comfortable with their photos being made available to the whole of the internet so I always lock these, just in case you were wondering

Many photos. Possibly not dialup friendly )

Best. Day. Ever

I have had an awesome day! Seriously, I don't think anything tops hanging out with a bunch of like-minded people in a pub *g*

I had a couple of nice surprises too! [livejournal.com profile] lex_a_like turned out to be on the train just behind mine so he came and joined us in the pub for lunch. Also, while I was on the train [livejournal.com profile] spikewriter called me. She's in the UK to see David Tennant in Hamlet so she came to the pub to to say hello. WHEE! *loves meeting LJ people*

[livejournal.com profile] yavannauk, [livejournal.com profile] complicat and I arrived at the pub just after 12, which was handily just as it opened. We must have looked like total alcoholics wandering in as soon as it opened. Hehe!

[livejournal.com profile] spikewriter arrived not long after that and we decided to order lunch.

[livejournal.com profile] lex_a_like got lost finding the pub so I had to go and rescue him, which is impressive because I didn't know where I was myself. LOL! It all worked out ok in the end though and we finished eating just as the Merlin fangirl posse arrived.

For reasons only [livejournal.com profile] lou_angel will understand I had a steak and cheese sandwich. It was delicious and also hilarious. I'll explain why in another post.

I pretty much leapt on [livejournal.com profile] lou_angel when she arrived. Hehe! I also got to meet Rizzy who has been working as our colaborative beta. He was fabulous and it's a shame he couldn't stay. I'm making it my mission to get him onto LJ

[livejournal.com profile] j_apollo had name badges for all of us to wear so that was cool. There's a pic of mine under the cut.

Then [livejournal.com profile] multiclassgeek had the awesome idea of doing a round robin fic and pretty soon a notebook was being passed around for us all to add a few lines. It turned into something quite epic. [livejournal.com profile] j_apollo is going to type up so I will link you to that as soon as I can. Once it was finished someone read it aloud to the whole group. LOL! Awesome.

(Fic can be found here)

I did my best to mingle and I did meet some new people so that was fun. It was also a mini Smallville meetup because as well as me, [livejournal.com profile] complicat and [livejournal.com profile] yavannauk we also had [livejournal.com profile] littlehollyleaf join us which was awesome. She's lovely! *waves*

I also met [livejournal.com profile] lisson17, [livejournal.com profile] krazykipper, [livejournal.com profile] ionaonie and [livejournal.com profile] kelene from my flist. It was awesome!

I'm already very much looking forward to the next one.

It would be easier to ask me who I met outside of LJ. LOL!
