Comment and I'll give you three of your icons and three of your interests to explain.

Here's what silsbee329 asked about.
Icons
single rose - Is there a story behind it?
I found this icon, made by x__conniieee, one day when I was wandering around LJ. I thought it was absolutely lovely and have kept it ever since. I use it for posts of a more personal nature.

john adams - I love 1776!
This icon, made by roadstergal, tickled my fancy as I, too, am a huge fan of 1776! I love William Daniels, who I first was introduced to with St. Elsewhere, and I thought he was a totally wonderful John Adams. I bought the DVD and watch it every few months. What fun music!

jeeves ties bertie's shoe - does this one make you as insanely happy as it makes me? ;D
Ohhhh, yesss! I made this icon, and every time I use it I think of the quote where one of them mentioned how odd it was to have Stephen waiting on Hugh like this; particularly things like taking off shoes, helping in the bath, etc. Also, I'm a sucker for any shot that shows one of them touching the other one. Hee!

Interests
Fanfic: What got you interested, and when?
I'm a newcomer to fanfic! I started watching House last summer and quickly became a H/W shipper! I got obsessed with Hugh Laurie from there, and I stumbled onto fanfic as I was doing Internet searches to learn more about him. Then I found LJ and saw that it was a good source for a wide variety of fanfic; from there I found J/W fic, and the rest is squee-ish history! :)

Hugh Laurie: What's the first role you noticed him in?
House! I've only been a card-carrying Hugh!girl for about 9 months, but I am rabid! :) It wasn't long before I found Stephen Fry (where have these two been all my life?), and the obsession just went crazier from there.

The Gimp: Tell me why you like it so much. :)
1. It's FREE! :)
2. It wasn't incredibly hard to learn, and there are a lot of good tutorials and information on LJ and the Internet to help you learn it.
3. It's fun to use; I've really been impressed at some of the graphics I've been able to create! I know it's not quite as fancy-schmancy as Photoshop and some other programs, but I like it! *huggles GIMP* (although a different name would have been more preferred!)

You! A 1776 fan! Yayness! I don't believe I knew that! *boing*

And I'll take a comment and interest as well...

Yay! Yep, I've been a 1776 for *years*! PBS used to show it every July 4, but I don't think they've done that for a long time. So I wound up buying the DVD so I could have my own freedom celebration whenever I wanted. :)

I love "Cool, Cool Considerate Men" and all of the John/Abby interactions the best. And the Richard Henry Lee song makes me laugh.. uproarious-LEE!

OK, for icons, I want to know about Kipper Kirk, Fascintating, and Courting. For interests, tell me about Alan Moore, Ed Exley, and Naraku/Kagome. I've never heard of any of those!

Yay! Great answers!

1776: I just saw this for the first time last winter for some reason, and I fell in love with it immediately. So funny! And William Daniels is delightful.

Fanfic: I have almost the same story, but I started watching in earnest last spring (around the time that "House vs. God" aired - that's when I first noticed the H/W yumminess).

Hugh: Same here, except for the Stephen part. I've been a fan of Stephen's since "Peter's Friends" (I never really noticed Hugh in that until after "House". Silly me.) and then "Wilde". I was completely intrigued to find out that the two of them were best friends. Now, like you, I can't get enough of them! (I can't believe I just bought that Jeeves clock!)

GIMP: Oy, that name! Hee. I'm all for free stuff, though! If I'd known it existed before I got PSP, I might be a GIMP person, too.

Yeah, I can see how you'd kind of miss out on Hugh in "Peter's Friends" over Stephen. He was lovely in that movie (as he is always!). And "Wilde"... *swoon*! What a fabulous piece of work.

So for interests, I'd like to know more about hindi films, harlem renaissance, and old movies... how did you get interested in all of them? :)

For icons, tell me more about Toys Rock, Amy, and SV Tasty.

Yay! I love for people to play along!

For icons: What are you doing?, walking in a scent of loveliness, and teddy one. I'd like to know why you like them and how you got some of the effects.

For interests: icon making (how did you get interested?), the boondock saints (never heard of them!), and typing (typing??)

PS... I LOVE your new Kingdom icons. Mmmmmmmmm

Awwww, your puppy eyes are soo soo cuuuuute!

For icons: the two rainbow ones and, OK, I'll bite... the rodent erotica one. Hee!

For interests: blue whale, homosexual whistling (I'm almost afraid to ask!), and custard socks (again, there's a bit of fear in picking that one )

Ooooh, me too! I'm fond of my userpics and curious to see which you pick out.

Yayayayay!

OK, lemme see...

Icons: Bertie blue eyes (one of my favorites), trapped in icon, and Brian Mikey hugs

Interests: Daniel Jackson (who is he and why is he an interest?), writing (how did you get started writing fanfic?), and wodehouse (how long have you been a fan?)

Ah, good ones. The Bertie blue eyes icon is by icons_of_isis and it's just such a good shot of him. I remember that fabulous story that followed Jeeves through some of his earlier employers and showed how he came to work for Bertie, and when they first meet face to face he thinks how the Ganymede book should have made some mention of the extraordinary blueness of his eyes. That icon always reminds me of the story.

The trapped in icon one is by taelonmahal and it's got David Hewlett (from my David Hewlett, how are you so awesome? phase) in his exceedingly weird movie, Nothing. I always thought it was a bit funny and meta.

The Brian Mikey hugs is from Queer as Folk, and I actually made that one, although it's only cropped and subtitled, nothing fancy. Brian/Mikey was my favorite pairing from that show, which in case you haven't seen it is entirely made up of canon gay and lesbian pairings. Hence the title, you know.

For the interests, Daniel Jackson is a character on Stargate SG1, which is a fandom I wrote in for quite a while. Daniel/Jack is the main slash pairing there and Daniel was the favorite character of many a slasher. Very pretty, and also with amazingly blue eyes. *g*

I started writing... oh, that's a difficult question. Actual posted fanfic? Around 2002, in the Whose Line fandom. In my head? Probably since I was about nine. I was making up fanfic before I even knew what it was. I just liked imagining the characters from my favorite shows and giving them new situations to be in. I'm sorry to admit that many of my earliest stuff featured Mary Sues, but at least I was kind enough to never commit them to words and inflict them on the internet at large.

I got into Wodehouse via House and Hugh Laurie, and old Youtube clips of Jeeves and Wooster. I haven't been in the fandom terribly long... let's see--posted my first J/W story Jan. 15 of this year, and at that point I'd been reading the fic for exactly one day. It's a fabulous fandom, and since many small fandoms are friendly and inviting, I just dove right in.

...I suspect this reply may have gotten longer than I meant it to. Am hitting post before I can reconsider. ^_^
