CS-GTKY

Captain Swan: Get To Know You April 2015 Edition!

There has been a lot going on in the fandom recently (finale freakouts mostly), and I think it is time for some good ol’ fandom bonding. 

This weekend, April 11th & 12th, let’s post a little bit about ourselves so we can get to know our shipmates!

Here is what I was thinking we could share:

• A selfie (if you are comfortable with that)

• 3 fun facts about yourself

• Favorite CS moment (there are so many now!)

• Other OUAT ships you <3

• Other fandoms you are in (maybe that your followers don’t know about and you can become new bff’s with people!)

So a selfie and 7 bullet points, that isn’t too much… right?

Again, this will be April 11th &12th (Saturday and Sunday)!

CS GTKY

HELLO EVERYONE!!!!! SINCE IT IS UNFORTUNATELY THE START OF A NEW HIATUS (SO SAD) I THOUGHT I WOULD BE FUN TO AGAIN BRING BACK CS GTKY. FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DON’T KNOW, CS GTKY STANDS FOR CAPTAIN SWAN GET TO KNOW YOU AND BASICALLY EVERY SUNDAY, SINCE THERE AREN’T GOING TO BE NEW EPISODES, WE WOULD HAVE A LITTLE TOPIC OR SOMETHING THAT WE COULD DO IN ORDER TO MEET MORE PEOPLE IN THE CS FANDOM. SOME OF THE EXAMPLES COULD INCLUDE SHOW A TALENT OR FAVORITE SONG OR ANY OTHER SUGGESTIONS. IN THE PREVIOUS YEARS, IT HAS BEEN REALLY SUCCESSFUL AND I FEEL LIKE WITH ALL THAT HAS HAPPENED THIS YEAR IN THE FANDOM, WE COULD ALL USE A LITTLE FRIENDSHIP AND BONDING, AND THIS WOULD BE A GREAT WAY TO DO IT.

SO IF YOU GUYS ARE UP FOR IT, LIKE OR REBLOG THIS POST AND WE WILL START IT UP AGAIN THIS WEEK!!!!

I LOVE YOU ALL AND I HOPE THAT THIS WILL BE SUCCESSFUL ONCE AGAIN AND THAT I GET TO MEET NEW PEOPLE AND MAKE LIFELONG FRIENDS.

Walden Pond (Concord, MA)

Greenough Pond (Carlisle, MA)

Lake Massapoag (Sharon, MA)

Boston Public Garden (Boston, MA)

Boston Public Library (Boston, MA)

  • I live for rosé wine and guacamole 
  • I love to decorate, especially with old stuff I find rummaging through thrift stores/antique malls

CS GTKY #2

Hey guys! Since last week’s gtky went so well, here’s the topic/info for this week! 

This week’s CS GTKY will be on Sunday, September 21 starting at 2 pm est. The topic is handwriting with five questions! 

Basically here are the five questions

  1. Favorite Captain Swan moment 
  2. Favorite Food that you could eat everyday
  3. What you want to do when you grow up/what are you doing as an adult
  4. Favorite line from Favorite song
  5. Draw a small picture

Answer these questions by writing them down on a piece of paper and then post that picture with the tag cs gtky! I think it’ll be so cool to see how everyone’s handwriting is different while still learning some fun facts about fellow captain swanners! 

PLEASE REBLOG AND SPREAD THIS AROUND!!!

CS Finale GTKY!

A while back I mentioned coordinating a finale GTKY (Get To Know You). Well folks, the finale is a week away apparently… So let’s plan this.

Dates: Saturday May 9, Sunday May 10

Tags: cs gtky, cs finale gtky

Bullet points:

  • Favorite Season 4 CS moment
  • Favorite Season 4 non-CS moment
  • Favorite episode of Season 4
  • A fun fact or two about yourself
  • Can someone message you during the summer hiatus to talk about the lack of CS currently on their television?
  • A selfie (if you are cool with that!)

So let’s do this fandom! I think the last one was really successful!

CS GTKY #1

Hi guys! As many of you know, we are bringing back CS GTKY this hiatus to make it a little more bearable and in general get to know more people in the captain swan fandom. 

If you don’t know what CS GTKY is yet, this link will let you know all about it!

To start out, the theme for the first week will be to POST A SELFIE AND TELL US 5 FUN FACTS ABOUT YOU, and the day to post is SUNDAY DECEMBER 20. 

We usually start off with this theme just to put a face to a url, and to see if you share any fun facts with some of your fellow shipmates! 

PLEASE REBLOG THIS AND SPREAD IT AROUND SO WE CAN GET AS MANY PEOPLE INVOLVED AS POSSIBLE!!!!

In order to keep the captain swan tag as uncluttered as possible, PLEASE TAG YOUR POST WITH CS GTKY ONLY.  I will be tagging the info posts for each week’s cs gtky for people who get involved late and go through the captain swan tag, but that’s it!!! Because spoiler pics and other things might still be coming out, we don’t want to have to sift through the cs gtky posts in the captain swan tag, so we have a tag especially for this. 

PUT THE DATE ON YOUR CALENDAR, TAKE A FUN SELFIE, GET YOUR FACTS READY, AND I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE ALL YOU WONDERFUL PEOPLE AND MAKE SOME NEW FRIENDS!!!!

(and as always, if you have a fun theme or an idea for the next cs gtky, PLEASE feel free to shoot me a message or chat me!)

CS GTKY

3 ‘Fun’ Facts

I can speak German and English, and a bit of French, Irish, Swedish, and Latin, although that last one’s a stretch.

I want to be a writer but I keep getting sidetracked by ideas for art that demand to be painted. On the plus side, that means I make lots of art.

There are birds trying and failing to move into my roof atm and they wake me up every morning at ridic:ulous AM and I want to hate them but at the same time they’re birds so they can’t be expected to know any better

(In case that last one doesn’t count, ah… I like cats.)

Favorite CS Moment

I still like the scene at the bottom of the beanstalk. Or oooh, “actually I quite fancy you from time to time… when you’re not yelling at me.”

Other OUAT ships you <3

Snowing, Outlaw Queen, Scarlet Beauty, Sleeping Warrior… actually pretty much all the canon ones at the moment. And Captain Book, Captain Charming, Frozen Swan, and Savior/Swan Queen platonically. And I ship Belle with almost everyone.

Other Fandoms

I’m not really active in any as much as in OUAT, but: Star Wars, Lord of the Rings / The Hobbit, Outlander, Harry Potter, and all the Marvel movies and series.

Selfie

it’s kinda late and my hair is a mess and I made NO effort today, you’ve been warned

3 Fun Facts:

  • I love to travel. I want to see everything and learn about people and places and YES. I love museums and ruins and castles and old buildings SO much. I love walking where people walked hundreds of years ago. It makes me feel connected to this crazy world and it’s an amazing feeling.
  • I’m staying in London for a bit right now for work related stuff and I LOVE it. I love this city and how alive it is and how much there is to do and ALL the people! Speaking of which, I’ve started making a list, a small description of interesting people I see on the tube everyday. I should share that at some point because PEOPLE man. They can be so great sometimes.
  • I don’t talk about it much on here but i have two weaknesses. Shoes and Makeup. If you’ve seen any of my selfies from before, you’ll know I have a thing for really bright colours and yeah, I just really like the whole process of makeup and people who are good at it, I am in awe of. (Also, all my brushes suck at the moment so if anyone has any recs for makeup brushes, hit me up!)

Favorite CS Moment:
IT’S YOU. Well, and also the sexy first aid. And also the cheek kiss from the episode after the date because CASUAL INTIMACY SLAYS ME.

Other OUAT Ships:

Hi, hello. I ship everything. :D Well, almost. AND RARE PAIRS. (I have a tag of stuff I’ve made.) Red Swan, Frozen Swan, Captain Red Swan, Frozen Knave, RED CHARMING, RED HUNTSMAN. (I love Ruby) (so much)

I read a lot though and I’m currently reading a lot of female written/female led sci-fi/fantasy and AHHH SO GOOD.

SELFIES:

Here, two pics of me because I’m feeling generous tonight.

Okay, random facts:

1. This tshirt there, it’s my “This is Sparta” tshirt, which my oldest brother got for my during his vacation in Greece. I love my brother. Both of them.

2. In 4th grade, I was so obsessed with Shakira, that I started a fan club. It was only me and some classmates, hanging out in my room and listening to Shakira xD (I saw her live in Berlin, too)

3. 1,5 year ago, I signed up for a songwriting camp. It was basically a workshop that lasted one whole weekend, organised by a media school I want to attend. We got divided into groups (3 people) and had to write and record a song. It was the first time I was in a recording studio and worked with other musicians. When the song was done, at the very end of the camp, a band was to perform it in Berlin’s Hard Rock Cafe. It was the first time I heard and saw my lyrics performed live, and people enjoying the song I (co-)wrote. It was such an amazing feeling, suddenly my heart grew so big and I knew that I want to feel it over an over again. It’s also when I discovered that I can be a workaholic (it runs in the family). I managed to hear thas song performed live again, about 2 weeks later. There is no greater feeling than having your own song stuck in your head, and knowing that it’s good.

4. I love karaoke. I’m not a great vocalist, but I really enjoy singing on stage. I vaguely recall always signing up for some performances during summer camps or so. I’ve always loved singing and being a part of a choir.

5. There are certain things I can’t say  no to: champagne, CDs, jewelery, perfume and concerts. These are some of the pleasures that as long as I can afford it, I’m not gonna deprive myself of it. As my friend told me the other day “a great concert can change your life”.

Hullo, kittens!

You’ve all seen my dumb face before, but here it is again, probably at its dumbest.

Five Things About Ann:

  • I have a very serious addiction to fall. It’s my jam. Give me all the cool weather and boots and leaves and cinnamon and scarves and schwoopy sweaters. Heaven.
  • My favorite place in the world is my bed.
  • I get weirdly obsessive when I discover a new thing I like. Read a good book? Immediately read it three times over. Like a band’s new album? Play on repeat for a week. Buy bitchin new boots? Wear everyday. Get a crush on a new boy? Sit outside his house in a bush with binoculars all day and night.*
  • Whenever I’m hungover or sick or can’t sleep, I put on The Mummy. It’s my ultimate comfort movie.
  • I eat waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYY too much cheese.

I love these CS GTKYs so much! All of your beautiful, shining faces make me so happy! 

BEST

SHIP

EVER!
