Spread some love?

There's storm-force crappity blowing in, with fresh fronts of whatEVAH moving in from the south, bringing with them a frisson of meh. This is displeasing. Today, in the midst of all the meh, someone said very nice things to me and while it didn't transform my week or suddenly make me fart strawberry flavoured and have passing songbirds whistling Beautiful Day in time to my tippy-tappy footsteps, it was very, very nice. I'd like to pass the feeling on.

I always liked the idea of that snaps cup meme except they're always hosted in the LJ of someone I don't know from Adam about how someone writes TEH BEST Black Beauty/Skippy the Kangaroo crossover slash. Well, I exaggerate because of the meh, but you know what I mean. Instead let us have some love about people I give a bugger about
(or indeed, people I don't give a bugger about. I don't mind if I don't know you. It's all good).

Let us reduce the perilously high ambient level of crappity. Here's how it works:
1. Comment with your username or someone else's
2. Post a link to your comment on your own LJ, so that your friends will know where to find you -- or just point them in this direction so they can say good things and have good things said about them
3. People can reply to your comment with reasons why the individual concerned is Donna-like in his or her gorgeousness

IP logging is off. Anonymity enabled. No name will get no comments, promise.

(ETA caveat removed and to explain that I have had a good day. My boss said really good things about and to me and I am getting an unasked for raise, so I am not in need of further nice things. Which is not to say it's not *great* to hear but I wanted to host, in an invisible sort of way, a carnival of love)

Son of ETA: There's a p2 now, SHE HINTED. You could spread the love even further in a non-icky sort of way. I am off for a kip now. Be excellent to one another and feel free to add your name to the end of the thing.

ETA, the revenge: On p3 now. Please feel free to carry on. Incapable of sentences sodding coherent I am, so you'll have to amuse yourselves

I think you are a pretty damn awesome writer, among your many other good qualities.

and I will throw my hat into the ring (at first I typed, "throw my head into the ring," which I think would not be so good): vaznetti

Go on, throw your head into the ring. It has a pleasingly ghostly ring to it!

Glorious crossovers and interesting meta, and you even get me reading fic/fandoms I never expected to like!

You are internet good people and they are few and far between. I am so glad we've finally met IRL!

I love your tales of academia and learning from you. I watch a lot of your shows so It's great to have someone as smart as you to discuss them with,though I'm pretty useless in that capacity.

You have hooked me on crossovers for all time. You get my hot John icon.

So much brain-power in one cranium! So much talent and thoughtfulness, leavened with just the right amount of snark! Always a pleasure to read or hear your words!

You understand why I love Krycek. Even now, even after I'm to the point where I can't even watch an episode of the X-files, I love Krycek.

Very few people get that. I barely get it myself.

It's been a pleasure to make your virtual acquaintance because some things you write make me think hard about and reconsider my attitudes and some things just make me laugh. I like your posts very much (and not just the snarky letters to clueless students!)

I will so give you snaps, and not the bra-snapping kind of snaps either, the two-snaps-up-in-a-circle kind of celebratory, look-how-neat-this-woman-is kind of snaps.

*snaps*

You reign over crossovers. I'm thrilled to have met you and waltzed about San Francisco in your company. I hope to cross paths, fannishly and geographically, often.

You are very smart and knowledgeable and talented, but every time I see you post the first thought that always comes to me is, "Gosh, I really like her." I just...do. We don't even have a lot in common sometimes, and we don't do a lot of off-LJ chat anymore, but you have been one of my closest online friends for as long as I can remember, and I am always, ALWAYS happy to see you. You're just YOU, and I would be adrift without you.

I would like it if you threw your head into the ring, because I envy your spicy brains! And classical snark is hard to come by on a daily basis, other than in your LJ.

Even when you're writing about things or shows I don't know, I still read: your prose and your thoughts are so clean and clear and lovely to read.

You are both deeply fabulous and incredibly patient with the ignorant.

I love your brain and would like to sublet it sometime. You have so much real, useful knowledge (rare among us Internet dorks), yet you're always gracious and thoughtful when you use it, and never seek to make another feel stupid or without value. You are a very ethical person, and I admire you so much. Plus you're also witty and funny and a talented author and I wish you wrote these days in a fandom I know something about.
