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?

Old fandom meme, revived

Need to do this again.  New journal, things have shifted a bit, so time to re-list my fandoms:

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.

Another Meme!

Gacked from [info]dkwilliams.  I couldn't resist

Summarise/give vague clues to 10 of your fandoms in one sentence, then see who on your friendslist can guess each fandom.

(And just to make this tougher, I'm not putting HP on here...)

  1. They came from outer space in saucers.  They're our friends.  They only want to have us for dinner. V guessed by [info]beren_writes 
  2. No!  Don't hug him!  *poof!*  *sigh* Just don't tell anyone, okay? Fruits Basket guessed by [info]calli_thaala
  3. She only died twice, her sister's a key, and her friends are a scary lot. Buffy guessed by [info]beren_writes
  4. Like Lost in Space.  But not. ST: Voyager guessed by [info]drusillas_rain
  5. To hunt, to howl at the moon, to find their ancestors. Elfquest guessed by [info]nyx_noire
  6. They are the One.  Who was, is, and will be. Babylon 5 by [info]ccmom
  7. Creature of the night solves night cases! Forever Knight guessed by [info]beren_writes
  8. What could possibly be wrong with a little ring? Lord of the Rings guessed by [info]beren_writes
  9. They've taken his land, she's got his love (though he'll never tell her), but they'll never take his freedom. Firefly guessed by [info]beren_writes
  10. Before there were six, there were three.  And there was plot, and it was good.  And there was believable love, and a fight for freedom.  And little teddy bears. Star Wars guessed [info]beren_writes 
Well, all but one guessed.  I just put the person who guessed it right first.

Fandoms

A meme, gacked from [info]fiona_fawkes who stole it from [info]furiosity who stole it from [info]kerrikins:

What fandoms do we have in common?

My main fandom is Harry Potter, of course.  Books, movies, fandom...  I love it all (though GOF the movie less so...)  Just too much there I adore.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer and a bit less so, Angel.  Joss whedon is my god.  I adore him, his one-liners, his characters, and the way he makes his worlds so real.

Sims - and yes, it is a fandom.  I could spend hours or even days creating houses, characters...  I love them.  I love playing them.

Star Trek.  Not active currently, but the only other fandom I really published stories in.  I can't imagine a world where there wasn't Star Trek in my life.  Even with the mistakes TPTB made, there's still so much good there.

Elfquest.  The only other fandom I got involved in on a personal level, though I wasn't in any holts.  I have always loved elves, so really, this was right up my alley.

Firefly.  See Buffy/Angel above.  And may I add, he makes the best female characters ever.

Star Wars.  Really the first trilogy, cause the prequels were bad.  Lucas had a great group of actors, the story had heart, and the entire thing advanced movie effects tenfold.

Stargate.  Love the idea, love the characters, love the stories.  Just a great team all around.  And anything that includes this much myth is right up my alley.

Forever Knight.  Best-ever vampire show on TV before Buffy.  It sucks that it only made it through three seasons.

Fruits Basket.  People who turn into animals?  And boys who can't touch girls?  How can I not love it?

Other minor fandoms: LOTR, B5 (Ivanova, Talia and Marcus...  God, yes.), XMen, V (the mini series), Batman. Teen Titans, Star Blasers/Space Battleship Yamato, Oran High School Host Club (omg, twins!), Battlestar Galactica, Quantum Leap, Law & Order, Labyrinth, Beauty and the Beast, Lost, Shakespeare

Yeah.  Just a few.  :P  And likely there's more I've forgotten.

So, who do you like?

Another meme, yes...sorry about that...

Gacked from [info]ponderosa121 -
The OTP meme.

I list my fandoms, and you guess what my OTPs are in them.  In some cases, I do have more than one, but I will indicate.  And--for added incentive, I will write drabbles for those who guess one right.

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.

New Meme! :D

Gacked from  [info]musesfool

So you're cleaning all the pollen off your TV screen and a genie pops out. In return for freeing her, she offers to grant you 5 changes to any TV show(s) you wish. With only 5 wishes, what do you wish for?
1) For Quantum Leap - Sam jumps home, and lives happily with his lovely wife, and his daughter Sam.

2) That the last episode, possibly last season of Forever Knight never happened.

3) To know Miss Parker's first name

4) That the last three episodes of Season six of Buffy never happened (I hate Kennedy, and that's saying a lot, cause I liked every relationship Willow was ever in, including when she was cheating on Oz.)

5) That Paramount let JMS take over the Star Trek Franchise, and he creates the next series, which will blow even Babylon 5 out of the water. :D

Apr. 2nd, 2005

Okay, too cool, so I had to...

01. Post a list of 10 TV shows you watch (current or cancelled!)
02. Have your friends list guess your favourite CHARACTER from each show
03. When guessed bold the line and write a sentence about why you like that character
04. Post in your own livejournal :)

1. Voyager
2. Babylon 5
3. Stargate SG1 Teal'c, guessed by [info]kleo_the_muse. Teal'c is the reason I decided to continue watching the show when it first aired. I love his sense of humor, his sense of honor, and the fact that he's lovely doesn't hurt either. :D
4. Pretender
5. Law and Order, original series
6. CSI
7. Battlestar Galactica (current, not old)
8. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
9. DS9
10. Forever Knight

Guess away!

Fandoms

So, I don't think I ever really did this, and seeing as how I just put my name into the Fandom Friending Frenzy over at [info]mctabby's lj, I thought I should post this somewhere people can actually see it..

My biggest current fandom is Harry Potter.  It is probably the most involved I have ever been in a fandom before.  I read & rec, and I write Fan Fic like mad.  But I love it.  I honestly have trouble remembering life before HP.

Beyond HP there is LOTR.  This has always been a background note in my life, even though I only just managed to finish the series.  I tried to write a Frodo-fic once, but I never finished it.  I think that was pretty much the extent of my time in the fandom, though I do read the occasional fic.

Elfquest is probably the last fandom I went as nuts over as HP.  I went through a period where all I did was create characters, make lists, and draw elves.  (my only fan-art ever, I think.)  If you like LOTR, and elves, I highly recommend it if you've never checked it out.  This was the very first fandom I ever wrote fan fic for, though I had no idea that that was what it was called, and every story had at least one Mary-Sue in it, so none of it was worth publishing online.

Star Trek is the only other Fandom I actually still claim (even though I no longer watch...) that I have written finished fan fic for.  My co-author and I wrote a two-part Janeway/Chakotay romance fic, the first part was called Captainella, and the second was Neelix in Boots.  It was lots of fun, but I look at it now and just see how flawed it was.

Beyond that, I read the occasional Buffy or Forever Knight fic, and I also consider myself a fan of Star Wars (the first three films only, really),  and V, the original 80's mini-series, though  I hear that they're working on a remake.  I also currently watch Lost, and consider myself a fan.  But that's so new, and I'm not sure how deep I'll get into it.

To everyone here from [info]mctabby, hello!
