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?

Fandom 30 Day Meme part 3

3 – For each of the fandoms from day two, what were your favorite characters to write?

Elfquest: Well, I did mostly OC's, but the ones I tended to pull from the main group were Winnowill, Cutter, and Scouter, if I recall... (did I mention I had a thing for evil characters? ;) )

Voyager: Janeway, and to a lesser extent, Chakotay and B'Elanna. I think Tom was all Foodie, really...

LotR: The fic I found myself writing focused on Frodo. Never finished it, though.

Harry Potter: Say it with me folks... Draco. Yeah...anyone who got that wrong needs to start at the beginning of my journal and work their way forwards. ;) Also Harry comes to me a lot, and Severus, Remus, Blaise, and Regulus. And sometimes George. Oh, and Lucius, and sometimes Kingsley. And I'm probably forgetting a half-dozen more, too.

Buffy: Haven't written a whole lot, but...Willow. :)

Firefly: Again, I think I've written maybe three drabbles? Plus, the group's so small, it's hard to have favorites. But I suppose if I chose, it would be Inara, Kaylee, Mal or Zoe.

Youkko Nitta: Magira. Again, I haven't quite written enough to be sure, but I do love he and Carlos... :DD

Merlin: Despite RPing Merlin to [info]kabal42's Arthur, I have to say that my first answer here is Morgana. Then Arthur, I think, and then Merlin. I suppose I'll find out more in November, huh? ;D

Icons

I've been uploading icons lately.  Feeling the need for more Buffy icons.  Anyone have any favorite iconners for that show (or Angel)?  I specifically like Willow, Oz, Dru, Spike, and Tara.  And I prefer stuff with text and pictures.  Would be greatful for help.  *looks out at everyone with puppy-dog eyes*

gacked from [info]ceria's LJ:

Make a list of all the characters in your icons. (Although you may have more than one icon of a single character, they only go on the list once.) Alphabetize it. Take the first two people on the list; that's your first pairing. Second two people; second pairing. Etc. Then write your reaction to each pairing (or a snippet of a hypothetical fic featuring each pairing).


My list )

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 note from a character on that list. Then they post their own list in their journal and the process continues!


Love this one. One of my all-time favorite memes. :D

Meme gacked from [info]musesfool
One that I really adore, so I must do again, and really just what I need right now.

Leave a list of fictional characters in your journal that you would love to get a message from. It is people'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, if they want to, and the process continues! (Feel free to post anonymously too.)

Feel free to comment on each other's letters.

  • Draco
  • Severus
  • Remus
  • Sirius
  • Regulus

  • Lucius
  • Willow (BTVS)
  • Yuki Soma (Fruits Basket)

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...

Okay, one more, then I promise I'll stop...

You scored as Willow. You are Willow, Buffy's Wiccan side kick. Willow is very smart, dated Oz, a werewolf-guitarest and then later had a Lezbian relationship with Tara. She is a talented Wiccan and very shy. She comes from a Jewish family with neglective, strict parents.

Which Buffy the Vampire Slayer Character are you?

Yep!

Willow
You're Willow! You've got a heart of gold, unless
someone messes with the people you care about.
It takes a lot to get you angry, but watch out
when it happens! You're still a bit geeky but
there's nothing wrong with that.
