Right, have JUST remembered that I'm a co-mod of this little lovequarter (because I'm smooth, and y'know, 'with it' like that), so thought I'd cruise in and introduce myself briefly. Apologies if I sound like a twat, please do not associate my behaviour with the glory that is this community. At the first sign of wankage, please, move right along. Imagine Stephen Fry is doing something amusing with a cucmuber and a surgical glove, that usually sends me to a happy place...
Basically, I'm a girl in the winter of her adolescence who is hopelessly in love with The Godly Stephen Fry (a feeling I'm sure you all relate with) and I'm a co-mod here because truly_bohemian (she of goodness and rainbows and light) asked me to help her out with her baby. I like odd words, amusingly constructed sentences, and British comedy; all of which, I think, have led me to be an embarrassingly besotted Fry fangirl. I occasionally write slash, mainly of the Stugh variety, and can be prodded to write fics of somewhattish relevance to Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry.
It's high time I took some reposibility round these parts, so I wanted to know, actually - what does everyone think of the idea of playing Stephen Fry Quote games? I think they'd be a fun (if slightly nerdy) way of making this place a little more lively than it currently is. COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION, PEOPLE. IT'S A HAPPY, FROLICKING THING. Like, I'm OBVIOUSLY not the best example of it, but I just think a community of Stephen Fry lovers? Should be ROCKING THE CASBAH. Like the man himself.
(I should tell you all now that I am a capslock whore. There are no drugs for it, I'm ALONE WITH THIS AFFLICTION.)
Anyway, what I mean to say is, we have a good forum here for Frylove and joyous literary discussion. Share the love, people! This is THE place where you pimp out ALL your innermost Stephen-related musings, submit your most pathetic babbles of praise at his prose, (or even your most biting criticisms, as long as you're up for the fangirl backlash), share ANYTHING worth noting about The Man and His Works, and just generally have a ticklish time meeting people of similar interests from all over this vast, friendly place we call LJ.
I leave you now with a few quotes from the man himself (shamefully Googled for your viewing pleasure), and all my love.
PLEASE comment back and tell me what you think of the idea of StephenQuotefests (by which I mean someone could post a few quotes from Stephen's books, and we'd all get points for correctly identifying the book or character relevant to the excerpt), and feel free to comment with any suggestions for really getting this comm up and swinging. Or even just comment back if you have something random you want to get off your chest, like "I WANT TO HAVE STEPHEN FRY'S ECCENTRICALLY CLOTHED CHILDREN," or "STOP WITH THE CAPSLOCK ALREADY, YOU ANNOYINGLY TEENAGE, EXCITABLE WANK."
"An original idea. That can't be too hard. The library must be full of them."
Stephen Fry on being gay: "My first words, as I was being born... I looked up at my mother and said, 'that's the last time I'm going up one of those!'"
"It is a cliche that most cliches are true, but then like most cliches, that cliche is untrue"
"When you've seen a nude infant doing a backward somersault you know why clothing exists."
"I don't need you to remind me of my age. I have a bladder to do that for me."
