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

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.

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?

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.

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
