First season of Star Trek: Next Generation never gets less cringeworthy, but I can’t stop because Patrick Stewart is a stone cold fox.
I also had a crush on that animated fox. :)
Ha, I’m so glad I’m not the only one! :)

1. Who is your least favorite historical person, and why?
Historians should not be asked these questions!! I don’t like the way popular history gives complicated people a one dimensional identity that becomes difficult to teach around (Chingiss Khan, Vlad the Impaler, Catilina, etc). That being said, I’m really not a fan of Columbus. There’s proof he forged maps to trick the Spanish into financing his expeditions, he was an overall liar and giving him all the attention takes away from the greater story and lessons of the period. He should be used as an example of why focusing on PR instead of actually doing things gets you famous, and there’s no way he should have a holiday.
2. Marvel or DC?
3. Name one thing you would change about Tolkien’s books (Hobbit, LOTR, etc.)
More women. Just everywhere, background characters, rangers, riders, healers, rulers, townspeople, men, dwarves, hobbits, and elves.
4. Who was your first fictional crush?
I think it was the fox version of Robin Hood. Once I saw Robin Hood: Men in Tights I understood why.
5. Name your favorite female sci fi or fantasy author, other than JKR.
Terry Pratchett, forever and always. (Wow, this is my brain in action. It completely edited out female until I read someone else’s post). In that case, A. C. Crispin was the first female author I was aware of in scifi and was one of my first inspirations.
6. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you pick?
I’ve been too many places to pick one. In the US, the Pacific Northwest is the area I know the least so it would be fun to explore that are. Worldwide, I’d be a traveler, because I would want to visit everywhere before making a decision, though Mongolia always holds a special place in my heart and felt the most like home.
7. What’s your favorite pet you’ve known?
My old English Lab, she was a total sweetheart and best traveling companion. Miss her every day.
8. Which apocalyptic or dystopic setting would you most prefer to live under?
Yeesh. I guess I can’t pick the original, can I? I love Utopia. I think I would pick the world of the book “One Fine Day” because at least I would be drugged and happy and not in too much physical danger.
9. What is your oldest fandom, and are you still a part of it?
Star Trek: Next Generation, and yes. I was raised a Trekkie; there is no escape. Apparently my uncle and dad used to have shipping arguments.
10. What is your guilty pleasure fandom? (Or, what other people might consider a guilty pleasure if you are blessed with no shame.)
I’m honestly not sure. I’m not in many fandoms but I enjoy a lot of media without engaging with it on the level I would consider necessary to claim it. When I had cable I used to watch Martha Stewart every day I didn’t have to work; something about that woman fascinates me, and I actually learned a lot about how to be a responsible adult from her. But it’s certainly not something I would admit to just anyone :)
11. You get to choose your next life. Jedi or Starfleet member?
I have my list of questions here: anyone is welcome to answer them. Thanks for tagging me!
