Last week I was talking to thewatersword, and we got to musing on the idea of LJ personas as somewhat equivalent to brand names. Basically, we tended to expect certain types of stories from certain authors, and that expectation became part of the portmanteau of icon/name/fandom we associated with them.

At which point I started to wonder if cupidsbow has a "brand" like that, and what it might be. Clearly this is a subject for the most self-indulgent poll of all time!
