Sam Gamgee

If I were a character in The Lord of the Rings, I would be Sam, Hobbit, Frodo's humble servant.

In the movie, I am played by Sean Astin.

Who would you be?
Zovakware Lord of the Rings Test with Perseus Web Survey Software

O_o Well...there are worse people to be :D.

I took the What Mythological Creature Are you? test by
peacefulchaos !

This is the exact same result I got months ago XD.

WHEE! There's been another 'Please, stop the slash! For the chiwdren!' type post on FFN! My response...
Hee.is this old discussion starting up again? What joy. Especially since it practically killed the Zim fandom last time it rolled round (and with the way they've been airing episodes lately, the FIRST thing we need is dissension amongst the ranks! Of course, that's productive.)

Point number one: you cannot ask that only people who support you review you. That is unfair, and not giving an opponent an opportunity to speak in such a 'discussion' negates your right to make such a 'discussion'.

Point number 2: Yes, people should label slash when it comes into play. But to demand that even that which has been labeled be taken away from your 'impressionable' eyes is ludicrous. You don't like, don't read. That's practically the first unspoken law of internet fandom/fanfiction involvement. Ask any seasoned veteran of the internet and you'll probably receive the same statement.

Point 3: Invader Zim should harbor nothing but 'clean' people with 'no sick minds'? What cartoon are YOU watching? Because from what I've seen (every episode, multiple times, every single piece of writing/artwork available by Invader Zim's creator, and from multiple online discussions with said creator and several other people involved on the show -writers, crew members, actors-) Invader Zim is one of the most fooked up shows on TV. There are very few things 'clean' or normal about it, and we wouldn't have it any other way! If it was 'clean' we'd have just another Rugrats clone. Disturbing thought, no?

Point 4: Fanfiction.net is a haven for ALL types of fanfiction. 'Nuff said.

Point 5: As for your protests that slash doesn't belong in Invader Zim, take a look at all the slashy innuendo you can find in a typical episode. Look closely. A lot of those are intentionally placed, a joke from the people working on the show. Especially after talking to certain crew members, they seem to think the whole slash thing is hilarious. Battle of the Planets alone is filled with the stuff, heh.

Point 6: It's not asking nicely if it's preceded with a mean, nasty, rotten version.

Point 7: I like cheese.

Point 8: It's only yaoi when the originating show is an anime/Japanese, and when there's graphic and explicit scenes involved. If you're going to condemn us, do it properly.

Point 9: "Censorship is telling a man he can't have steak just because a baby can't chew it." -Mark Twain

[runs off to play with Zim and Dib]

Bridgie seems to think I should write that awful evil delighfully naughty fic I've been thinking of. Too bad I probably won't be able to post it on FFN anymore, that would've been great fun to post in the midst of an impending slash/anti-slash battle.

Bridgie's gonna help me with an LJ icon, yay!!!

I agree with you. u.u I've never been a slash fan (or a fan of ANY romance) but everyone is completely entitled to what they want to write, AND what they want to read. There is no reason to infringe on the rights of others.

There have been a couple slash stories I thought were good. I generally don't mind reading anything as long as it's believable and a good story. Although, one of the stories I'm writing right NOW is probably going to end up being a romance, just because it's a Phantom of the Opera take-off, and that story IS a romance, so this one has to be.. garg.. 9.6 It won't be slash though.. because I need Dib to be the heroic Raoul. u.u Even so it might turn out to be just a friendship thing with no REAL romance..
