[[folder:Things I Have Edited]]

These are the pages I feel I've made significant contributions to. It's a fairly short list, as I've just become comfortable with major editing and fluent enough to know what tropes to add.

* ''GameOfThrones'': I've been involved since the beginning, so I feel the strongest attachment here.
* ''SlingsAndArrows'': Sadly doesn't have a huge fanbase, so I try to give it bunches of love.
* {{Shakespeare}}: I've made small contributions to a number of related pages, most recently adding quite a few tropes to ''TitusAndronicus'', ''TroilusAndCressida'', and ''RichardII''.
* ''{{Warbreaker}}'': I unified the formatting, fixed spelling, alphabetization, grammar, spoiler tags, etc., put on a page image and caption, and added [[YourMileageMayVary YMMV]], [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Crowning]] [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Moments]] [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming Of Adjectives]], and TearJerker pages.
* ''{{Elantris}}'': Pretty much the same, formatting, adding a page image, and creating a YMMV page.

[[folder:Favorite TV Shows]]
* ''DoctorWho'' - I've only seen nuWho so far, but that will most likely change. Because it is ''amazing''.
* ''{{Torchwood}}'' - Season 1: embrace the camp. Season 2: enjoy how much better it's gotten, revel in the angst. Season 3: cry for hours and then gush about how well it's written. Also: Jack Harkness.
* ''{{Merlin}}'' - So cute! BradleyJames and ColinMorgan just have wonderful chemistry, which elevates the show enough for it to be enjoyable.
* ''{{Dexter}}'' - What? A thoughtful, dark, violent, complex TV show? Hell yes.
* ''{{Glee}}''
* ''{{Psych}}'' - Silly fun! Also one of those shows that's much more complex than it appears to be.
* ''BurnNotice''
* ''{{Firefly}}''
* ''LifeOnMars'' - 1) the writers are evil geniuses. 2) Jesus Christ, it's beautifully crafted (see the ridiculous amounts of parallelism between the first episode and the last). 3) JOHN. FUCKING. SIMM. *dies*
* ''{{Sherlock}}'' - the first episode may well be the best hour and a half of TV I have ever seen.
* ''BeingHuman''
* ''WhiteCollar'' - Neal Caffrey is what happens when a writer reaches inside my head, pulls out close to [[GentlemanThief every]] [[ChivalrousPervert trait]] [[DeadpanSnarker that]] [[WaistcoatOfStyle inspires]] [[GuileHero hopeless]] [[EstrogenBrigadeBait PSL]] [[LoveableRogue in]] [[GentlemanAndAScholar me]], and condenses it into one person.
* ''SlingsAndArrows'' - Dear Santa: I asked for more time to do my homework, and instead you brought me a Canadian TV show about a Shakespeare company, which features some of the most accurate, insightful, well-acted, and passionate dissertations on Shakespeare I have ever seen. Also, [[PerverseSexualLust Geoffrey Tennant]]. I'm not sure what that says about your opinions on the necessity of schooling, but from the bottom of my heart, thank you.
* ''BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' - I've only seen through early Season 6 so far, but I love you, JossWhedon. So much.
* ''{{Angel}}'' - A darker, more adult ''{{Buffy}}''? Yes, yes, and more yes.
* ''{{Dollhouse}}'' - ''So'' interesting so far.
* ''{{Farscape}}'' - Love, love, love. The complex characterization and snappy dialog and wonderful handling of sci fi tropes made me fall for this within an episode.
* ''TopGear'' - I'm as surprised as you are. After all, I don't care about cars (excepting the really, really pretty ones I'll never have enough money to own). But the banter between the hosts is pure gold, and I just love watching them be enthusiastic about their passion. Hammond is my favorite.
* ''GameOfThrones'' - It has barely started and I'm already obsessed. Lush, complex, gritty, political fantasy = love FOREVER.
* ''TheBorgias'' - Beautifully shot, beautifully costumed, beautifully acted, and full of beautiful people. What more could you ask for? Besides, Cesare is so attractive it's almost beyond belief.
* ''{{Supernatural}}'' - I'll admit, the prettiness of the leads is part of the attraction. But it's also snappily written, highly interested in character development, intriguing from a mythos perspective, able to pull off tones ranging from full-blown comedy to pure horror, and more complex than it may seem at first blush.
* ''DowntonAbbey'' - Gorgeous period drama with a huge cast of complex characters. YES.
* ''The Hour'' - A Cold War spy thriller wrapped in a character drama with a stunning aesthetic, flawless acting, and the most perfectly calibrated character dynamics you'll find anywhere. I. Am. Obsessed.

I would also love to watch ''AshesToAshes'', ''{{Blackpool}}'', ''StateOfPlay'', and various others I'll most likely never have time for.

[[folder:Favorite Movies]]
* ThePrincessBride
* TheReducedShakespeareCompany
* ''{{Hamlet}}'' - I've seen four versions, probably liking Tennant's the most as an overall production, because . . . well, it's DavidTennant and PatrickStewart, and they're doing Shakespeare ''very'' well, and also the double entendre interpretations are interesting, to say the least.
** Also, a lot of other films of Shakespeare, like Branagh's ''Henry V'', the Shakespeare in the Parks version of ''Taming of the Shrew'' with MerylStreep and RaulJulia.
* StarTrek - the new one
* {{Chocolat}}
* {{Serenity}}
* RepoTheGeneticOpera
* DieHard
* GalaxyQuest
* LookingForRichard
* {{Disney}} - All of the animated ones, and ''some'' of the live action.
* LordOfTheRings
* TheDarkKnight
* [[{{Theatre/ptitlenjisnv3p}} Les MisÚrables]] - the Tenth Anniversary Concert. That counts, right?

[[folder:Favorite Ships]]
This will be a long list with some canon, some crack, some het, some slash, some [[OneTrueThreesome OT3s]], and some genuine uncertainty. Probably boring for people other than me, but it's fun to list so I can track my preferences.

* ''DoctorWho'':
** Nine/Jack - and maybe grudgingly Rose, but I don't really like her.
*** Thus, Nine/Jack/Rose when I'm feeling nice.
*** On the subject of Jack . . . I like the Ten/Jack ship, and will happily read/write about it, but tend to ship him more with Nine and Ianto because I'm ''so'' invested in the following.
** Ten/Master - one of my all-time favorite ships. Just the FoeYay, and the history, and the angst, and the pure sexiness and gorgeous acting of DavidTennant and JohnSimm . . . *swoons*
*** Theta/Koschei - SO. ADORABLE. I tend to characterize the Academy setting as "chibi Doctor/Master," because it's the cutest thing ever.
** Rory/Amy - say it with me: oh, ''Rory''.
** Eleven/River - River is so badass. I think she's a match for the Doctor. Firmly cemented by their ''adorable'' flirting in "The Impossible Astronaut."
** Eleven/Amy/Rory - when Eleven is feeling lonely and Rory is feeling generous.
** Eleven/Amy/Vincent - it's only one episode, but damn did they ever have chemistry!
* ''{{Torchwood}}'': Jack/Ianto - they are so perfect together. Children of Earth can go die, for all that it was beautifully written.
* ''LifeOnMars'': Sam/Annie - sorry Sam/Gene shippers, but these two are way too cute to not support. Seeing John Simm all sweet and chivalrous and shy makes my heart melt.
* ''{{Merlin}}'': Arthur/Merlin - don't tell me it's not there. I've seen this show turn the most innocent people into squeeing slash fans ''within an episode''.
* ''WhiteCollar'':
** Peter/Neal - so much HoYay.
** Peter/Elizabeth - the cutest, most convincing married couple on TV, in my humble opinion.
** Peter/Neal/Elizabeth - I'm pretty sure even Elle ships this.
* ''{{Glee}}'':
** Will/Emma - not sure where I stand on most of the kids' relationships, but Will and Emma need to get together ''yesterday''.
** Kurt/Blaine - MADE. OF. ADORABLE. Seriously, "Baby It's Cold Outside" (and, you know, everything else Darren Criss does) makes my heart melt. And it's NOW CANON! *dies*
* ''{{Sherlock}}'': Sherlock/John - another of my absolute favorites. Has been known to induce massive amounts of {{Squee}}.
* ''{{Dexter}}'': Dexter/Rita . . . *sob*
* ''StarTrek'': Kirk/Spock - I admit, this is mostly on the basis of the new movie. Still.
* LordOfTheRings: Faramir/Eowyn - two of my favorite characters, and so perfect for each other.
* Batman, in whatever form: Batman/Catwoman - ''especially'' in ''BatmanReturns'', because ''damn,'' MichellePfeiffer.
* {{Shakespeare}}:
** ''MuchAdoAboutNothing'': Benedick/Beatrice - my favorite Shakespearean couple of all time.
** ''{{Hamlet}}'': Hamlet/Horatio - "Goodnight, sweet prince." More in their university days than during the play, though.
** ''TheTamingOfTheShrew'': Petruchio/Kate - don't try to tell me she was actually tamed. No, I subscribe to the theory they actually fall in love and then act for everyone else's benefit.
** ''TheMerchantOfVenice'': Antonio/Bassanio - Antonio is heartbreakingly self-sacrificing, and I just wish Bassanio would stop using him.
** ''AsYouLikeIt'': Orlando/Rosalind, though the slash fangirl in me also likes Orlando/Ganymede. But it's the same thing. Sort of.
** ''[[AMidsummerNightsDream A Midsummer Night's Dream]]'': Oberon/Titania - they strike me as two very in love people who have been through a lot, will be through more, and still want to be together. Awww.
* TheBartimaeusTrilogy: Nathaniel/Kitty - they would be so good for each other.
** Maybe some Bartimaeus/Ptolemy for good measure.
* FarsalaTrilogy: Kavi/Soraya - I spent the whole series thinking it was heading this way, and then it just . . . didn't. Damn.
* [[KushielsLegacy Kushiel's Legacy]]:
** Phedre/Joscelin - talk about trial by fire; they love each other so much, and it's adorable.
** Imriel/Sidonie - they balance out nicely.
** Imriel/Lucius - yes, I know this is supposed to be OTP, singular, but come on. It's Terre D'Ange.
** Ysandre/Drustan - because they are BadAss enough to deserve each other. And they're both fantastic rulers.
* HarryPotter:
** [[LauncherOfAThousandShips Draco/Anyone]]
** Remus/Sirius - I know we don't get much from the Marauder days, but it just makes so much sense.
* TamoraPierce:
** A lot of the canon couples, especially Alanna/George and Daine/Numair.
** Beka/Rosto - Rosto in general is so sexy, I have no idea how Beka has resisted him for so long.
** Rosethorn/Crane (past) and Rosethorn/Lark (present).
** Briar/Anyone - except Berenene or his foster-sisters.
** Raoul/Gary - though Raoul and Buri (and Gary and Cythera) are adorable too.
** Aly/Taybur - I love Nawat when reading him, but the more I think about their relationship the more [[{{Squick}} squicked]] I get, and Taybur is made of win.
** Jon/Zahir - I blame Goldenlake for this one.
* GoodOmens: Aziraphale/Crowley - because it's practically canon!
* ''LieToMe'': Eli/Ria - something about them just clicks for me.
* [[TheQueensThief The Queen's Thief]]:
** Gen/Irene - massive amounts of {{Squee}} were induced by the third book.
** Helen/Sophos - so adorable!
* ''BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': Where to start? It doesn't help that Joss Whedon throws in massive amounts of [[UnresolvedSexualTension UST]], HoYay, FoeYay, and ShipTease. Also, disclaimer: I have only watched through mid-Season 6 so far.
** Willow/Oz - I know in later seasons Willow comes out and all (and I totally, completely support Willow/Tara, because they are awesome and adorable), but she and Oz are so damn cute!
** Past!Giles/Past!Ethan - It so happened. Even Cordelia knows it.
** Spike/Anyone - That man could generate sexual tension with a rock. Rawr.
* ''{{Angel}}'': I have to admit, the scene in the hospital after Wesley was shot almost made me into a Wesley/Gunn shipper. We'll see if that goes anywhere.
* ''{{Farscape}}'': John/Aeryn. SO MUCH CHEMISTRY.
* ''TheBorgias'':
** Cesare/Lucrezia - The eyesex is so intense that they have become my first incestuous ship. Wow.
** Cesare/Micheletto - The whipping scene? Yeah. ''Damn''.
** For that matter, Cesare has smoldering chemistry with anyone he has a scene with, to the point where I often find myself squicked by the implications. But ''holy hell'' it's sexy.
** Lucrezia/Giulia - They're so pretty together. And the kissing practice was beyond LesYay.
* ''{{Supernatural}}'': Dean/Castiel. So very, very much. "The Man Who Would Be King" just . . . just ''gah''.
* ''ASongOfIceAndFire'': To an extent, this also translates to ''GameOfThrones'', though I don't have many ships based purely on the first book, so we'll have to wait until next season and see.
** Renly/Loras - My heart is breaking for them.
** Theon/Asha - And so GeorgeRRMartin contributes to the list of writers conspiring to destroy my sibling incest [[{{Squick}} squick]]. Their chemistry is absurd. That first scene together? ''Wow''.
** Jaime/Brienne - So much badass, so many self-esteem issues . . . they are made of awesome.
** I like Dany/Drogo a lot, but Dany/Jorah is beginning to steal my heart. Iain Glenn may have something to do with that.
** Tyrion/Shae/Bronn - Because Shae makes Tyrion happy (and he deserves that), but the dynamic with Bronn is too awesome to ignore.
* And I support the canon couples in tons of other books, movies, and TV shows. Those are just the standout ones at the moment.

More to come. In case anyone's interested. Which they're probably not. But oh well.
