Meme part Deux
The one that everyone was doing last night while I was busy doing the icons and snickering at Kita's misplaced confidence in my level of class:

Name a fandom you know I know and I'll tell you:

1. The first character I first fell in love with
2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now
3. The character everyone else loves that I don't
4. The character I love that everyone else hates
5. The character I used to love but don't any longer
6. The character I would shag anytime
7. The character I'd want to be like
8. The character I'd slap
9. A pairing that I love
10. A pairing that I despise

I will help you with this, o people who do not know the fandoms I'm familiar with: BtVS/Angel, Doctor Who (oldskool or new, though I haven't seen Christmas Invasion yet), X-Files, Xena (though my viewing was haphazard to say the least), QAF:US, Dead Like Me, 6 Feet Under, The L Word (only seen S1, though), Star Wars original trilogy, Trek TOS, TNG, or DS9, American Gothic, Strange Luck (does that show have more than one possible pairing, though?) Firefly, House (again with the only seen S1 though), Wonderfalls, Red Dwarf, Are You Being Served (what? WHAT?) Allo Allo... oh, name an imported BritCom and there's a decent chance I watched the whole thing. Due South, but again with only seen (3/4 of) Season 1 plus a couple random RayK eps, and I refuse to choose a Ray, so you'd probably be wasting your time. Any RPGs I've played in. (Though certain of them were limited enough or didn't last long enough to make for very satisfying answers to the meme.)

1. Mal
2. Wash
3. I don't have one; I love them all. Probably Inara is lowest on my list, though.
4. Jayne, I suppose, but that's really more like "The character I love who is least liked among a cast who don't really contain any characters that everyone hates."
5. *SPOILER* only because *SPOILER* wahhhhh.
6. I... have to pick one? Fine. Mal. Or possibly Jayne; I can't help it, he has such huge fucking hands!
7. Kaylee.
8. Jayne. Dude needs to be slapped. Frequently.
9. River/Kaylee.
10. None, but Mal/Inara needs work, and Simon/Kaylee lacks something. Mostly gayness.

Buffy!

mpoetess

1. Willow
2. Xander
3. ...hmm. I have characters I don't love (Eve and Kennedy* were awfully written; Eve was simperingly acted. Warren was written and acted perfectly and I hate him as a human being.) but none where I'm swimming against a large tide of fannish opinion, I don't think.
4. I like Fred a lot more than some folks do, despite hating the positions she was placed in relative to other characters. She doesn't, with the exception of the crackass moment when she tries to fix Wesley up with a grieving mother, bother me; the other characters' reactions to her just annoy the crap out of me. (It just occurred to me that I immediately combined BtVS/A:ts. If we're talking just Buffy, hmm. Jenny Calendar? Joyce?)
5. I'm a lot more cynical about Willow now.
6. I... have to pick one? Xander, because I wouldn't shag crazy!basement!Spike, or S2 evil-and-unsocialized Spike, at least without a cattleprod handy.
7. They all have serious flaws; the character I am most like is Willow, which is why I'm now so cynical about her. Tara is probably the most virtuous of the combined cast, but she lacks enough snark to make me want to be her. Plus she's afraid of bad spelling on the internet. I LAUGH in the face of bad spelling on the internet and correct it with white-out on my monitor.
8. BtVS-only: Kennedy*. Combined: Eve. Plus, you know, all of them, at various points.
9. Canon/almost-canon: Giles/Jenny, Willow/Tara*, Buffy/Faith, Giles/Ethan. Period: Spike/Xander, Wes/Angel, Lindsey/Angel.
10. Willow/Kennedy*. Yeah, I'm not gonna get over that any time soon. Also not a huge fan of Spike/Buffy.


*I'm not a Kitten, and I have absolutely no writing issues with Tara's death. I'm annoyed by the gay-now-ness of Willow, so there's that; I'd rather have seen her stay single or acknowledge that the concept of bisexuality exists, than be shoehorned into a relationship that grated on my nerves for every moment of its existence, just so we could keep being reminded that she's Gay Now. New f/f ship for Willow? Fine with me in theory. The actual ship with the actual Kennedy? Arrgh. Iyari Limon? Very pretty, not a bad actress. Kennedy the character? I want to smack her in the way I wanted to smack Faith in mid season 3, except I at least have sympathy for where Faith was coming from. Kennedy just strikes me as a spoiled brat who pretty much continues to get exactly what she wants no matter how rude or annoyng she is about it.

1. Data.
2. Q.
3. Hard to call because I didn't really participate in the fandom? I can't remember anyone I especially disliked.
4. As above. Troi, I suppose, or Wesley Crusher.
5. Worf. More because I lost track of him on DS9, than actually starting to dislike him.
6. Picard.
7. Guinan.
8. Hee. Guinan, for constantly being inscrutable. Also, Q.
9. Picard/Q.
10. Despise is a strong word, but I'm still WTF over Worf/Troi.

1. Romana.
2. Tegan.
3. Rose.
4. ...hmm. Turlough? I don't have the Adric-hate that much of the fandom has, but I don't lovelovelove him, either. Oh, also, One annoys me.
5. Some of the actors have tempered my love for the characters a bit via their post-Who careers, but eh, not so much as to be measurable. I used to be a lot more tolerant of Peri until I realized the rest of the fandom thought she made a really bad fake American too.
6. Ace, Seven, Nine.
7. Romana.
8. One. Seriously.
9. Four/Romana, Seven/Ace (Sorry! I just. Yeah. Only under very skilled hands, though.) Brig/Two-or-Three.
10. Despise again is a strong word, but Nine/Rose feels forced to me.

1. Delirium. *mourns loss of her, WOE* She turned into a monster when we learned about monstering. And a beachball!
2. Aeryn.
3. DEATH - I don't dislike HIM, I just haven't interacted much yet.
4. ...I don't think there is one?
5. I was impressed by Tara when she first arrived; she chose an interesting and reasonable backstory. Her subsequent characterization diverged quite a bit from my take on the canon character.
6. I WAS NOT LOOKING!!!! Logan. Or Angel. We're talking me though, because XANDER WAS NOT LOOKING!!1!!!
7. The Tick OMG!
8. ...**censored**
9. Tick/Becky Angel/Callisto. John/Aeryn.
10. ...**censored**

Are You Being Served?

2005-12-28 10:03 pm (UTC) (Link)

1. Mr. Humphries!
2. Mrs. Slocombe.
3. I don't think I have any; I can't stand Old Mr. Grace, but can anybody?
4. ? Mr. Lucas? I'm not sure if there's anyone that everybody hates.
5. I think Mr. Lucas only counts due to his complete disappearance. *misses him*
6. Dude. Mr. Humphries. No contest.
7. Mr. Harmon!
8. Rumbold.
9. Capt. Peacock/Mrs. Slocombe. Mr. Lucas/Mr. Humphries
10. Capt. Peacock/Jessica Wasserface from Millstone Manor.

Dude, US QAF, totally! I didn't even know you watched it, and now I'm all curious. :)

1. Emmett
2. Brian
3. ... Not sure? Possibly Ted, except that I do except when he pisses me the fuck off.
4. Mikey? Though I do acknowledge his whininess.
5. Ted. Man do I have issues with his entire "My life sucks and thus I descend into addiction" Arc Of Selfishness.
6. *scratches head* Neither Mel nor Linds is my type, and all the hot boys are completely gay. Brian, though.
7. They're all rather exceptionally fucked up. I'm not sure I want to be like any of them.
8. All of them, at various moments.
9. Ted/Emmett in theory, except it happened too fast and then descended into sgdjhgjh too fast, so it never hit the place where I got to actually love it. Mikey/Brian BFF-ness.
10. Justin/Ethan. Not because I'm all Brian/Justin OTP!1!!, just because Ethan icked me, repeatedly.

1. Lister.
2. Non-Ace Rimmer.
3. Hmm. Chloe Annett!Kochanski? ZOMG NOT-KOCHANSKI!
4. I can't think of a character that everyone hates.
5. Kochanski!
6. Any time? I'd say the Cat, but then there's Duane Dibbley... Claire Grogan!Kochanski.
7. The Cat. Except for Duane Dibbley.
8. Oh, Rimmer. Repeatedly.
9. Lister/Original!Kochanski, Lister/Rimmer.
10. ...Rimmer's Mum / Anyone Ever?

1. Jaye. For "Is this his cheating wife? Eric can't talk right now; I'm servicing him sexually."
2. Sharon.
3. Don't have one; I can't think of anyone on the show I hate, aside from Eric's wife. Despite her Kaylee-ness.
4. I don't think the show has an 'everyone hates' character.
5. Nope.
6. Well, Jaye, if she weren't very very straight. Or her brother.
7. I kind of am like Jaye, except not so apathetic. And also older and less straight.
8. Me Jaye. Probably after about 5 minutes in the same room with her.
9. Jaye/Eric. Yeah, I dunno what's up with me liking the canon het pairing. *turns in slasher card*
10. Eric/evil!cheating!wife

Hee! I already did everything but House.

1. House.
2. Cuddy
3. I am pissy at Chase; then again, I haven't seen S2 yet.
4. I think I'm probably pretty in line with most of the House fans I know.
5. N/A - Cameron certainly became annoying, but I was expecting that.
6. House. Gently.
7. Cuddy.
8. Vogler. Duh.
9. House/Cuddy, House/Wilson.
10. House/Cameron.

*notes that she almost replied with the wrong account*

*further notes that she needs some Xander icons that don't feature nudity or gayitude*
