Meme

* Comment on this post.
* I will give you a letter.
* Think of 5 fictional characters and post their names and your comments on these characters in your LJ.


[info]kennahijja gave me P.

Polgara who was one of two great female characters from the Belgariad, the other of whom also begins with a P...  Possibly the strongest female in the series, and that includes her mother.  Definitely a kick-arse woman who doesn't take no for an answer.

Porenn is the aunt of my all-time favorite character in the Belgariad, Silk.  There's a bit of angst going on between them because she married his uncle, but he's madly in love with her.  Even though she knows this, she always goes out of her way to make him comfortable.

Phoenix.  Whether Jean Grey or her future daughter, Rachel, I was drawn into X-Men because of her.  It's not just the power, either.  It's like she wasn't fully realized until she became Phoenix.  Of course, now we have a good notion why, but even so...she will always be my favorite X-Man.

Peter Pevensie.  I actualy quite like the eldest of the Pevansie children.  Strong and protective, and I love how he watches after his baby sister, even if he's not quite as good with his little brother.

Peter Parker.  Always a favorite Super Hero, and I have to admit, I did identify with him...


Gah... P sucks!

Old fandom meme, revived

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

Fandom rambling behind the cut because Elf doesn't know when to shut up )

Have I gone on long enough? :P

Summary Fandom Meme part 2

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

I have so many fandoms that I can even do this again without including Harry Potter, or repeating any of the fandoms from the first round.  So...everyone got their pencils out?  I'll be screening comments that have a guess about each fandom until all (or most) have been guessed.

  1. Talking animals, winter forever, and naughty little boys. Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe/Narnia guessed by [info]fiona_fawkes
  2. One would never guess this New England estate was anything more than a school.  Unless you caught the students doing something strange. X-Men guessed by [info]fiona_fawkes
  3. WTF is with that string of numbers? Lost guessed by [info]fiona_fawkes
  4. Be careful what you ask the Goblins for. Labyrinth guessed by [info]beren_writes
  5. In New York City, there are those above, and those below.  This is one of the stories where they meet. Beauty and the Beast guessed by [info]beren_writes
  6. He made his fear into their fear to bring justice to his city. Batman guessed by [info]fiona_fawkes
  7. Just keep the technospeak to a minimum?  The commander really doesn't get it. SGI, guessed by [info]ccmom
  8. So many time periods; only one of him. Dr Who guessed by [info]fiona_fawkes
  9. A race against time to save the Earth on a Battleship from World War II. Star Blazers/Space Battleship Yamato guessed by [info]emmagrant01
  10. A search for the lost tribe. Battlestar Galactica guessed by [info]beren_writes 

Anyone want to give the last one a few guesses?

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.

This week's <lj comm

Name your five favorite superhero movies.

The best )

And while I have your attention?  How about the worst?

The worst )

And a movie that SHOULD be made... (feel free to comment about others, if you wish. :D  I'd love to hear what you'd like to see...)
  • Teen Titans - Based on the comic book, NOT the cartoon, which I abhor.  I'd like to see the original Titans, too, not the 80's ones (though I love them as well...): Dick "Robin" Grayson, Donna "Wondergirl" Troy, Wally "Kid Flash" West (later just the Flash...), Aqualad aka Garth, Roy "Speedy" Harper...  The only problem with this is the heroes most of them were sidkicks for (well, Donna wasn't a sidekick so much as a kid sister...) weren't that well known, and Aqualad had such limited powers.

New Layout!

Well, I had so much fun looking through all the possibilities yesterday, that I decided it was time to change my layout.  Hope it's not too painful for people to look at.  I tried to keep the colors subdued. :)

And it goes with my new Lockheed icon! :D

Icons!

So, Hubby says I can get a paid account...  Mostly because he doesn't want me to set up GJ account.  So I will be looking for new LJ Icons.  Anyone who wants to treat me, I would love ship Icons specifically:
HP/DM, SS/SB, SS/RL, George/Harry, LM/RL
Also anything good for Draco, Snape, or Remus.

Other stuff:
Star Trek, particularly Voyager
Star Wars, specifically Han/Liea
Dragon Prince series, particularly Sioned & Rohan (or a picture of Miranda Otto as Sioned)
Buffy/Angel, Willow, Vamp Willow, Angel/Buffy, Oz/Willow, Willow/Tara
Babylon 5 - Susan Ivanova, Delenn, Lenir, Susan/Talia, Susan/Marcus
Jay Davidson in his Ra garb... :D  Or somehow as Blaise.
Elfquest: Winnowill, Rayek, Tier, Cutter, Skywise, or Winnowill/Rayek, Ember/Tier
Moulin Rouge - Christian/Satine
Cate as Galadriel
Jean Grey

I'm sure there's more, but it's not going to come to me as it's so late.  But any places to find icons would be appreciated and adored. :D
