(I'll add a link to my virtual birthday gift once you let me know whether my choice is appropriate.)

ETA: Presenting: "Batman: Death Wish" by Matthew Hiscox and Jennifer Zhang--I thought of you the instant I saw it.

Captain Jack Havock of Steampunk Empire, on the refreshing courtesy and gentility he's encountered in the steampunk subculture:

I believe that the PUNK part is reverse punk, because so much of today's society is ill mannered that we ARE the punks by rebelling that.

During the course of a Fanficrant (community.livejournal.com/fanficrants/8042596.html) concerning anachronisms committed by younger writers of Watchmen fic, I happened to remark offhandedly that "(1970 and 1985, from the standpoint of the turn-of-the millennium generation) both fall within the Like So Before I Was Born Era, along with Shakespeare, tyrannosaurs, and zeppelins."

Be careful what you say in the earshot of fans: [livejournal.com profile] okelay   then demanded a fic involving all three.

(after exacting a promise of future pie) thereupon complied. (One of the icons I'm going to have to get drawn up and installed, along with the Teal Deer, is an ox pulling a delivery cart full of Plot Bunny Chow.)

Of course, it could be argued that a man who annotates The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, writes the equivalent of The Junior Woodchucks' Guide to Victorian Genre Fiction, and celebrates things like Six-Gun Gorilla and Zeppelin Stories is bound to attract the sort of fandom he deserves (and no--I'm not the perpetrator.)
