Yo. Supreme pirate commodore, at your service
(Psst. The correct response is "At yours and your family's!")
Anyway, I dink around in fanfiction when I get an idea, but I've more or less moved on to my own realms, odd and piecemeal though they may be. Now I am a rabid fanfic reader, mainly because I'm a rabid reader in general. I have a tendency to emulate Gandalf in that I am known to come home from college without telling anyone and just randomly appear to certain people. Other times I'm in town and don't tell anyone at all. They just find out--if they find out at all--by chance. This is occasionally not well received by my peers, but they always get over it. I never manage to comport myself as well as Gandalf, however: I'm very well-known in several areas for having grappling matches--we're talking full-contact basically no rules--in college dorm hallways. You can find me later, cooing over my bruises. I have strange fits that have me driving long and randomly; but as the cost of gas is rising I mostly just find places to hike now. I love coffee, and I am willing to appreciate anyone who says the same, but the second you tell me your favorite coffee is a caramel macchiato or an orange mocha frappucino, I lose all respect for you. That is not coffee. That is wet sugar in a cup. I have low enough respect for people who drink that shite, but call it what it is or I will have none at all for you. Coffee snob? Slightly. I drink tea too, and am a lot less militant about it. I've been known to spend hours and hours in coffeeshops, locally owned and chock-full of fair-trade coffee. I'm usually the loudest there with the people I'm with, but I'm a great tipper so no one really minds.
As far as fanfics go, I like forays into the weird. If I wanted canon, I'd go to the original medium, I feel. I will not read anything I find not well written, and I'm picky. Of course, every now and then I need a good dose of tooth-melting fluff. You know. Something that will make me go "squee." and have everyone in the room stare at me.
