Let me start by telling an anecdote that dates back a few months, when swankyfunk and I went to the BAM to watch the Cornetto Trilogy. We were joined by rushin_doll and skygiants for At World's End and the Q&A session with Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost afterwards.
I asked "So having seen all these movies together today, how would you say they work as a trilogy - particularly how does Hot Fuzz fit in as a second installment?" And I got a long, rambling, very satisfying answer from Simon Pegg about evolution, revolution and devolution and how the movies reflected and intersected each other. He used words and phrases I'd never heard before, having not been an English of Film Studies student, and I was very happy with it.
Swanky asked: "Hey, Nick, what was it like fighting your best friend?" and got a long, rambling, very satisfying anecdote that resulted in the boys finding porn under Nick's bed.
Coming out of the theater: I said "I got the long involved meta, you got porn." To which Ana cut in: "It's JUST LIKE FANDOM."
Which is true. Thanks to the things I ask for and the things I volunteer, I never get porn. And it's not like I don't like my high brow, fantastically written meta (and sweet shippy utterly perfect Leonardo fics) but I never ask for porn.
So last night I went into Yuletide chat just as someone was announcing: "Right, I've finished this fic, who wants it gifted to them?" And I said "ME. I WANT IT!"
And THAT is how I got Mulan pegging fic for Yuletide.
