If you could be any Star Trek character, who would you be, and why?

Павел Андреевич Чехов, naturally.

And not just because I had a mad crush on him when I was sixteen.

Also? I need a Star Trek icon.

Now for me, this would be Doctor Beverly Crusher. When I was in university, I thought she was the most awesome character ever. She was calm, cool, and collected. She was tough when she needed to be, but she was gentle when she needed to be too. It didn't hurt that I wrote Gates McFadden a letter and she wrote me an actual, genuine letter back when the rest of the cast just sent form letters.

She wrote you back? That's awesome. I was a Picard/Crusher shipper back in the day.

Also, icon! :D

Yes, she did. It was so awesome for my fangirl heart. :) It wasn't a very long letter--it just said something like thanks for writing and liking Beverly and that she liked the poem I sent (Yes, 19 year old me tried her hand at poetry, and I wrote one inspired by Beverly and sent it to her.)--but I thought she was the greatest for answering me.

I was a fan of rare ships even then. LOL. While I liked Picard/Crusher, my main ship was...Crusher/Riker. I blame Odan. (In case you don't remember, that was the Trill inside of Will when he and Beverly slept together.) That episode was one of the first I saw, and I couldn't get over the chemistry between the two characters.

You noticed my icon! :) It took me forever to make that last night (I think I actually sent you the larger version because I was excited when I finished.), but I really like it. I also wanted to inspire myself, so I made my LJ layout "Melting the Ice Queen", with a banner that it took me three hours to make this afternoon. (Sad, but I am *not* a graphics person. In fact, I generally stink in the graphics area. Add to that that it is almost impossible to find pics of Meg and Ray together and...it was quite an undertaking. Fun, though.)

I got your picture that you sent, but yay for it being an icon! (also, will send first beta of new stuffs tomorrow).

(**points to pic** Hey, I made an icon with that pic, though I haven't loaded it yet. LOL I've always loved the way he looks looking through the barrels.)

Icons, graphics, banners...I am obsessing way too much over this story. I'm having so much fun writing possible scenes from throughout the story that I am seriously neglecting the beginning.

No worries about the snippets. They were more for opinions and comments and suggestions anyway, and they are from waaaay later in the story. I think I'll have the next chronological bit done enough to send you by Sunday, but, as always, take as much time as you need. You are not going to get any pressure from me whatsoever because I'm just happy that I have someone who actually wants to read this story. :)

Do you still want feedback on the snippets? I can do that! :D I'm at work and have a limited break time, but reading your story is a great way to spend it. <3

That would be awesome! (But, I'm probably too late. LOL I just got home from work.) I would like the feedback when you get the time, though.

Supertruefax coming up: When I was younger one day I wanted to be Spock and the next I wanted to shag him. I could never quite decide.

My husband eventually clarified this for me years later when he said something like "Don't be daft, you could never be Spock. You're Kirk." Which also went a long way towards explaining why I've always found Kirk so bloody irritating.

Well, maybe if you were Kirk you could shag Spock. :D
