Name me a character and I will tell you:

- Why I love them or why I wish they'd go die in a fire.
- My OTP for the character
- My favorite gen relationship with this character.
- An unpopular opinion about this character.
- One thing I wish would [have] happen[ed] with this character in canon.
- An idea I have for the character that I haven't written yet/won't ever write for whatever reason

Newish fandoms that are very much on my mind right now: Avengers, Suits, Common Law, Revenge, The Vampire Diaries. Plus there's always older ones like anything in Joss Whedon's universes, Smallville, due South, Doctor Who (Classic & 2005), the StarGates, the Star Treks, the Star Wars...es.

Things I don't watch and have no opinion on: Newer New Who, Sherlock, Teen Wolf.

Saw this going 'round my flist (most recently via [livejournal.com profile] medie) and I have a bunch of new fandoms since the last time that I did it, so it seemed like a good time to do it again.

Give me a fandom and I will tell you at least one opinion that I have about it that I believe is unpopular.

Saw a couple of people on my flist doing this. I think that I've done something similar to this before, but I can't recall the details.

The Big Read reckons that the average adult has only read 6 of the top 100 books they've printed. Well, let's see.

1.) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2.) Italicize those you intend to read.
3.) Underline those you LOVE.
4.) Put an asterisk next to the books you'd rather shove hot pokers in your eyes than read.

book list, with commentary )

And, randomly, Robert Downey Jr. is a wonderful human being. It's kinda cool to read gossip stuff and find out something nice about someone.

ETA: Oh, realized that sounded a bit vague and mysterious. He helps out people who are recovering from drug addiction; gives them the kind of support that saved him.

And my last final is turned in now.

I don't know if I posted at a bad time before or if no one was interested, but I'm gonna try that meme again.

Tell me about a story I haven't written, and I will give you 1-3 sentences from or about it.
butterfly: (Vampire Diaries - Nina/Ian)
• Reply with "Fuck yes fierce ladies (and awesome dudes, too)" and I'll give you four fandoms.
• Write about your favorite character from each fandom.

[livejournal.com profile] fauxkaren gave me: Buffy, Doctor Who, The Vampire Diaries and Angel the Series.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Seasons 1-5: Xander Harris; Seasons 5-7: Buffy Summers )

Doctor Who
Rose Tyler )

The Vampire Diaries
Elena Gilbert )

Angel: the series
Fred Burkle; Wesley Wyndam-Pryce )

On a side note (since I'm talking about awesome female characters on male-driven shows today anyway), I accidentally watched Suits thinking that it was the show with Breckin Meyer and Mark-Paul Gosselaar as unconventional lawyers, but it ended up being the show about unconventional lawyers with no one I recognize except GINA TORRES as the boss. It's also really slashy but, yeah, GINA TORRES.

Day Four: A female character you relate to - Kaylee (Firefly) )

Day Five: Favorite female character on a male-driven show - Lois Lane (Smallville) )

Rest of the days )

Day Three: A female character you hated but grew to love

I'm choosing Nynaeve al'Meara from the Wheel of Time books. She did irritate me when I started the books but now she's one of my favorite characters and I completely adore her.

Day One: Favorite lead female character

This is an exceedingly difficult question. I have loved many lead female characters (but some of them I know I'll be able to get to in later questions).

I will go classic/old school and say my girl Buffy.

butterfly: (Young At Heart -- Sarah Jane Smith)
...okay, it isn't really a meme, I suppose. But I want to write something but do not feel like delving into any of my actual stories because they're all much longer than I have time for at the moment.

So, I will write ficlets for up to five people, in the fandoms of AI (Kris/Adam), Doctor Who (Doctor/Rose), or Vampire Diaries (Damon/Elena; potentially Caroline/Stefan and/or Caroline/Tyler; might even be able to swing Bonnie/Jeremy or Alaric/Jenna or Damon/Alaric) if people want to give me prompts.

ETA: and that's five! Those should appear sometime before this upcoming weekend.

Borrowed from [livejournal.com profile] arabian.

Give me a show/movie/book series/etc., and I'll pick one character I'd remove from the cast and tell you why.

NAME A PAIRING FROM ANY OF MY FANDOMS (I don't have to like the pairing, I may never have considered it before, but name any pairing you like as long as I know the fandom!)

And I will ramble on about if:
1. I like it, or not.
2. Why I like it if I do.
3. What would make me like it if I don't.
4. If I'd write it/rp it.

As seen... lots of places on my flist.

Post the names of all the files in your WIP folder, regardless of how non-descriptive or ridiculous.

I'm also including a snippet with each file name.

1 for The Vampire Diaries )

1 for Smallville )

23 for American Idol - Kris/Adam )

3 for Star Trek )

4 for Doctor Who )

Oh, wait, I found more (older ones).

1 for RENT )

2 for Star Wars )

1 for House )

Well, that was ridiculously long.

Found on my flist:
List fifteen of your favorite characters from different fandoms, and ask people to spot patterns in your choices, and if they're so inclined, to draw conclusions about you based on the patterns they've spotted.

I forced myself to only pick one per fandom and I'm still leaving out some people that I really love in some smaller fandoms.

Fifteen favorite characters in alphabetical order )

As requested by [personal profile] jedinic. Password is 'unfinished'.

Like I said in the description, only the coloring on this bothers me, but enough that I haven't been able to declare it 'finished'.

And... I think I'll post the others tomorrow.
