And somewhere along the lines, I stopped just reading and accumulating trivia, and started actually spending time with people and doing things and having fun and exploring new interests rather than hyperfocusing on a few old interests that I'd developed in 1993 or so that were "safe".

But this man's mental picture of me stops at 1998, just as the socialization process was starting to set in. Back then, I was interested in Star Wars, Star Trek, other science fiction and fantasy (heavy on the Anne McCaffrey and Mercedes Lackey), writing (one novel in progress, constantly editing, revising, and adding to; major Mary Sue OFC in an AU of Voyager), and CTY. I crocheted, read books, and was fairly knowledgeable about the pet chickens. I wore a purple hat with a bazillion snarky-sayings buttons. I eschewed color, mostly. Since I'd read two books and cast a few spells, I was the Junior Resident Knowledgeable Witch in my high school. I was passionately and foolishly in love with said Shawn, and was completely loyal to him (even when even he rightly felt that he did not deserve my loyalty). I was openly bisexual, and wasn't ashamed of it (or of being a witch, or being a Trekkie, et cetera.) I had vivid multiple personalities, one of whom I was always telling to shut up, because she was always making dirty wisecracks. I had teenage hormones and the $PATERNAL_CLAN temper. I was the Goth!Fen!GoodHair!Hermione Granger, because I remembered almost everything I'd ever read or ever heard.

And that was about it. I was unusually deep for your average high schooler -- but even your above average high schooler doesn't usually manage to be incredibly deep, through sheer lack of experience. And then I got depressed and went away, and he got married, and after he got married, I think we may have seen each other in person two or three times before I left for Arizona and college. And the rest is history.

I'm sure your formilliar with the Hapan battle dragon.
azurelunatic says:
I think you showed me a while ago.
shawn says:
No, its a ship from the StarWars books
azurelunatic says:
Ah. Then I'm not familiar.
azurelunatic says:
I stopped reallykeeping up with those a while ago.
shawn says:
>:-(
azurelunatic says:
...I just lost geek points, didn't I.
shawn says:
You know what a Hapan is don't you?
azurelunatic says:
A loss of about a zillion more geek points: nope.
shawn says:
wow. I don't even know you anymore.
azurelunatic says:
Hehe. What did you think would happen in 6 years?
shawn says:
Your the one who is supposed to remember things...
shawn says:
retain knowledge and such
azurelunatic says:
Yeah.
azurelunatic says:
But, if I never knew what a Hapan was to start with, how can I remember it?
shawn says:
You did.
azurelunatic says:
When?
shawn says:
Remember 'Courtship of Prncess Leah?'
azurelunatic says:
I remember it was fairly dreadful.
azurelunatic says:
I think I kept reading it for the romantic moments.
shawn says:
I bet you can't even tell me the color of the carpeting on the bridge of the Enterprise D anymore...
azurelunatic says:
Some fairly inoffensive neutral color, like greyish purplish, I think?
shawn says:
Good guess.
azurelunatic says:
I don't even say "Shut up, Shanna!" anymore.
shawn says:
In what season of TNG did they add shoulder padding to the uniforms?
azurelunatic says:
Hell if I know.
shawn says:
2nd season. You are dead to me.
shawn says:
:'-(


What did he expect, me to stay frozen as I had been forever?
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
