Nothin' But Neck!


I originally privatized the neck quiz entry to do some tabulating on the latest few guesses without having to rush back and re-screen the comments, since answering them with "You got X number right" automatically unscreens them. But while counting up the totals on each entry so far, I found that we had an early winner! swahiligrl identified all 34 necks correctly. (And will get a throat-biting drabble with pairing of her choice and/or a custom LJ icon, as soon as she lets me know what she'd like.)



I'm not going to list which folks got how many right; I'll just link back to the original post and you can make comparisons for yourself if you so desire. If you still want to make guesses for your own amusement, don't look in here 'til you've looked there!





I will, however, give some random stats. Out of 16 players:



The most identifiable boynecks were Lorne and Ethan; no one got them wrong. The least identifiable boyneck was Jonathan; only one person got it right. The most identifiable girlneck was Harmony; all but one person got it right. The least identifiable girlnecks were Faith and Buffy; only 2 people got each of them right. The majority of people voting on the Faith pic thought it was Buffy; the majority of people voting on the Buffy pic thought it was Joyce.



Six people got more girls right than boys, seven people got more boys right than girls, three people got an equal number of girls and boys right. There were 120 correct girl necks and 126 correct boy necks. Nothing very telling about which gender is easier to identify, as far as I can see.



The largest number of correct answers by any one person was, obviously, 34. The smallest was 8, by two different people, so I wouldn't feel too bad about it. (Especially as frankly, if I hadn't been the one to choose the pictures? I'm fairly sure I would've identified Lorne and Ethan. Possibly Giles.)



Ok -- the answers! With more stats attached, and clicking on the episode name will pop up the full character picture.

I thought this was a very interesting idea, but what really caught me is how much older some of those necks look to what I had expected, especially the women. Very surprised at some of the answers,on top of the fact that some were taken from very early eps. Going to look at my neck now...

Yes, a lot of them do look much older, out of the full context of their faces. (I had so much fun with Buffy, because I think people were looking at "Pink? Surely not Buffy" and the sagging shirt collar giving an impression of her neck being older.

I recognised Ethan, even though I didn't reply.. And Giles.. but what I thought was funny is that the ones everyone got right are the green one ;) and Ethan's. Can't just be the shirt. :)

I think it's Ethan's lovely long throat. Mmm.

Mmm indeed. *Licks & bites*

This was so neat. Thanks for posting the answers! :)

And I knew that I would've gotten almost all of them wrong if I had tried to guess. I was right about that, at least.

chicken! Hope it was fun, anyway.

Argh! I wish I'd done at least the boy nex. I would have been person number 2 to get Jonathan! I couldn't figure out most of the others, though, so I wouldn't have even placed. Maybe Jonathan could have earned me an honorable mention? Haha.

Re: Nex.

Jono would indeed have earned you an honorable mention! So many people thought he was someone else...

Whew...

Whoo hoo! I won! You actually gave it to me though by crediting the original screencap's sites, because for someone like me (read: no job, off from school, and way too much time on my hands this past week) it was just a matter of figuring out who I could (9 for the girls, 10 for the guys), making educated guesses on some, and then blind guesses on others (the last four guys). From there on out, it was a matter of confirming my guesses with what I remembered from eps at the picture sites. I confirmed 30 (all but Connor, Spike, Wes, and Giles). Two, I had a pretty good inkling on (Spike and Connor), so it was just a matter of taking a stab at the last, remaining two. It's also interesting that the two I had to blindly guess on were both from eps that I'm not fond of, therefore, I didn't recognize the outfits off the top of my head.

Anyway, if you're able to do mini-movies or animated icons, I would really like one of Numfar doing the dance of joy. If you can't, don't worry about it. I'm competitive and enjoy just winning on its own. Thanks for the challenge and the fun it presented!

I figure anyone willing to go to the same (or more, probably) amount of obssesive trouble to look up the pictures at the archives certainly deserves as much credit as someone with the scary ability to ID them all from memory.

I'm pretty sure I can do dancing Numfarr, but it may take me a while to gather the caps (as I don't have Angel S2 on dvd yet), so I'll let you know when it's ready!

This was such a fun quiz - (I know I didn't enter, not a hope in hell *g*) had huge fun playing it. The boys had a look too, and got into quite a discussion about Necks and Neck-lust.

Very Cool You.

You could just do *asses* in general - I know, I know - not nearly as much fun, but still - fun times to be had there too... ;)

Man, I feel so lame now. I actually started out trying to go through and confirm all the necks at the sites you had listed, but I ended up just guessing (poorly). I'm also aggravated because I *did* end up changing some of the ones I had right. Grr.
