Photospam: Mah Bichez

I've got a group of characters whom I adore that all fit into a certain mold but which still have a great deal of variation in between, and since female characters never get enough love, I felt the need to share them today, because seeing a photo of one of them just made me grin, almost manically.

I call them "mah bichez" affectionately, of course.  Every single one of them has a dark edge to them, and most are the "bad guys" in their universe, or at least one.

Bad Girls behind the cut )

Of course, those are just the ones who came to mind today, and definitely the ones at the top of my list.  Who would you add?

Today's Fannish 5

I haven't been interested in these in ages, but I quite like this one:

What are your five favorite canonical friendships?

Harry Potter
  • Sirius, Remus and James.  I'd add Peter, but JK totally screwed him over to make sure that no one would ever like him.
  • Severus and Lily.  Aaaaaw...  :D
  • Harry and Neville, though more movie-canon than book-canon.  I love that Neville actually gets to help him and talk to him in the movies.
  • Severus and Lucius, even though it's never explicitly stated.
  • Albus and Gellert.  A fascinating idea.  I can't wait to see what the fans do with it. :D
Star Trek
  • Geordi and Data.  Not just symbiotic because Geordi was an engineer, but also honestly good friends.  I always loved their jaunts on the holodeck.
  • Ben and Dax.  I have a huge soft spot for Dax, and I always loved this.  How it grew from a male/male friendship to a male/female friendship with only one hint of romance the entire time Jadzia was host.
  • Tom and Harry.  These two were so fun together...  Little kids on a big ship. :D
  • Kathryn and Tuvok.  Everyone needs a Vulcan friend.  To tell them when they're being an idiot
  • Kirk and Spock.  Oh, all right, yes.  It's one of the things I hope this new version gets right.  They were each others' support, and I want them to show it, damn it!
Others
  • Sam and Al, Quantum Leap.  They were really so great together...
  • Knight and Schanke, Forever Knight.  Ditto.  I can't express the number of times Schanke's stupid antics and Nick's reaction made me grin.  And yet, they were still always there for each other.
  • Buffy and Willow, Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  Only the best of friends can get away with calling each other such horrid things and smile about it while they're doing it.  "Quitter."  "Whiner."  "Bailer."  "Harpy."  "Witch."  "Bad seed..." 
  • Cutter and Skywise, Elfquest.  God, I can't believe this wasn't at the top of my list.  These two are so perfect together.  Cutter the brawn and Skywise the brain.  They compliment each other so well...
  • Brian and Michael, Queer as Folk.  I know some prefer the romance between them, but if it had ever happened?  It would have destroyed everything between them.  They were never meant to be anything more than friends.  Though they were excellent at that.  They understood each other almost better than anyone else.  And put up with each other more than most of the others in their lives did.

Leave a list of fictional characters in your journal that you would love to get a message from. It is your friend-list's mission, should they choose to accept it, to write you an in-character "letter" from a character on that list. Then they post their own list in their journal and the process continues!

Harry Potter:
  • Snape
  • Lupin
  • Draco
  • Blaise
Fruits Basket
  • Yuki
  • Ayami
  • Kureno
Star Trek
  • Captain Janeway
  • Chakotay
  • B'Elanna
  • Jadzia Dax
Elfquest
  • Skywise
  • Nightfall
  • Teir
Others
  • Susan Ivanova (B5)
  • Teal'c (SG1)
  • Inara (Firefly)
  • Willow (BTVS)

Um, that's all I can think of at the moment...

I know love-ins aren't as much fun as hatefests, but i thought we'd give it a try this week, okay? immediately contrary to last week's top five of hate and rage, this week's is top five fictional characters you love without bounds. not, of course, necessarily romantic-type love; just the fictional characters, movies or tv or books or whatever, who're your favorites. the ones you'll jump to protect or defend if somebody slags them off. you know.

  1. Draco
  2. Snape
  3. Neville
  4. Inara
  5. Deanna Troi
I'll defend if I must, but there's my list...

Today's <lj comm

What 5 major events on any of your shows caused you to become enraged?

Chakotay/Seven, Voyager.  Okay, I know tptb didn't want him with Janeway, but why?  Why did they feel they had to do this?  At least with the Doctor, there was some interesting interactions.  Just made me want to tear my hair out.

Dax's death, DS9.  Dax was, is, and probably always will be my favorite Star Trek character.  It doesn't hurt that I'm absolutely fascinated by the Trill, either.  But about halfway through the run of the series, they started selling Dax short.  Oh, she wasn't interested in dating Trill...  Oh, she didn't want a Trill ceremony...  They practically forgot the Trill even existed.  Now, I understand that they had a running storyline, but it seems to me that was just sloppy plotting on the writers' parts.  By the time she decided to leave, I couldn't particularly blame her.  Didn't make watching her death any easier, though.

Serena's departure, Law & Order.  WTF?  "Is this because I'm gay?"  Where did that come from?  No groundwork, no nothing.  At least, not that I noticed.  What about the fact that she was constantly butting heads with him, or that (if I recall correctly) she'd screwed up in the case that epsiode?  Or better yet, why not let her keep her diginty and walk away because she'd had enough of that arsehole, and had decided to become a public defender?  For gays? :D  Anything but what they did.  Yeesh.

The final episode of Quantum Leap.  He never found home....  WTF?  How is that a good ending?  That sucks!  There's only one other series ending that upsets me more....

Forever Knight series finale.   !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Why?  No, no, no, no!  I know they were trying to make sure they wouldn't have to do more, but anything would have been better.  ANYTHING.  I don't care if she would have made a sucky vampire.  FK is one of the first fandoms I read heavily in, and some of the best ones I read were crossovers between it and QL, fixing both endings.  I also read some of the Virtual season 4 that some of the fans did.  I would have liked to have seen that.

This week's <lj comm

Name five fannish characters you would trade lives with.


In thinking of who I would list, I come up with two thoughts.  One is that this can't be a favorite character thing necessarily, because most if not all of my favorite characters are heavily angsty.  Draco will have a bad end; ditto Severus, plus his unhappy life; and look at Remus, Willow and Jadzia...  I'm just drawn to angst.  The other is that when I do narrow it down, they all seem to generally end up being the same character type: a strong, confident woman.  Jadzia, B'Elanna, Janeway, Zoe...  All generally the same character.  So, those two codacils in mind, here goes nothing...

  1. Jadzia Dax (DS9) - Strong, confident, intelligent...  I would give anything to have the amount of confidence she had in her pinky finger.
  2. Zoe Warren (Firefly) - Again, strong and confident, and never without a smile.
  3. B'Elanna Torres (Voyager) - The attitude, the intelligence.  I loved her from the first episode.
  4. Nightfall (Elfquest) - Here's one of the few who actually gets to live the happily-ever-after most heroes don't.  And boy does she deserve it.
  5. Leia Organa (Star Wars) - Got everything her mother didn't.  Maybe Bail made the difference? 
Some Not-quites -

Willow Rosenberg (BTVS) - Adored her greatly, but her breakdown in season six was just too much to handle.  And Tara's death...
Draco Malfoy (HP) - Could have everything in the palm of his hand, but didn't realize what he'd need to do to get it all, so now he may end up being a casualty of the war his father has helped create.
Remus Lupin (HP) - We all know that Remus will never have a happy life, unless JK decides to do the "killing the werewolf who made him breaks the curse" rule...
Padme Amidala (Star Wars) - I loved her in the first movie, was rather dissapointed with her in the second, and was thouroughly disgusted in the third.  She had so much potential.  But apparently being a leader that young means that you don't have to worry about thinking after you step down...

~Give me your top five Star Trek episodes of all time. If you know the title, more power to you. Please describe the episode so that it is recognizable by your other crew members. Pick from any of the five series: Star Trek; Star Trek: The Next Generation; Star Trek: Deep Space Nine; Star Trek: Voyager; and Enterprise.

~Copy this to your lj and post. If you see something on your list listed elsewhere, stick a star by it on your own list and give the person who mentioned it a comment.

The Host (TNG) - Dr. Crusher falls madly in love with the Trill Ambassador, but when an accident lands him under her care, she learns a lot more about him than she wanted to know.  The first apperance of the Trill.  My all-time favorite Star Trek Race.

Equilibrium (DS9) - Jadzia discovers something about a previous host that she knew nothing about.  My favorite character in this series, and this showcases her and her race quite well.  Probably my favorite episode of this series.

Resolutions (Voy) - Janeway and Chakotay all alone on a planet together.  He makes her a bathtub and tells her the story of the "Angry Warrior."  She starts softening towards him.  Then they're rescued.  They were obviously meant to be.  Too bad TPTB didn't think so...

The Enterprise Incident [I think that's the right ep...] (TOS) - Kirk under cover, Spock dealing with the Romulans, and the Cloaking Device.  The Romulans will always hold a place in my heart because of this episode.

Q and the Grey (Voy) - Q returns to Voyager to claim Janeway as his mate.  Featuring one of my all-time favorite Star Trek actresses as the female Q.  And one of my all-time favorite lines, as well...
"You know, I've always liked Klingon females. You've got such...spunk." (for those who aren't aware, Suzie also played K'Eylar on TNG)
