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?

That Icon Meme again

Did this in October, but I added a bunch

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).

Decided to go with snippets this time. And I didn't include real people in this list. Just the people I use in RP as the charcter I use them for.

micro-ficlets behind the cut, with lots of HP, a bit of QAF, Firefly, Stargate, Beatles, and many others included, some mention of character death )

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 )

State of the Elf

Let's see...health thing sorta better.

Writing getting done.  Still have two more to finish this month, then I have a thought for a epilogue-kid mini-drabble fest...

Have signed back up at NaNoWriMo's website, and have been looking around there.  My plot for my fic I'll be writing is coming along nicely...

Fall TV opinions )

Tons of movies coming out this fall.  Starting with Across the Universe today...  The previews look so pretty...I can't wait to see it.
Others I'm looking forward to:
Elizabeth the Golden Age (still not 100% sold on this one, but I did love the first, even with the playing with history...) - October 12th
August Rush - November 21st
The Golden Compass - December 7th
Sweeny Todd (has everyone seen the preview, yet?) - December 21st

And, of course, a few videos as well... :D  I've been putting off watching the Pirates movies until I can watch all three at once... :D


Um...that's all I can think of for now, anyway...how is everyone else doing?

Update of doom

I just seem to be so distracted these days, I rarely seem to post anything but fic or memes.  So a list of my life of late:

* On Spoilers!  I know I've said it before, but I'll say it again.  I don't want to be spoiled.  Please, please, please!  Put stuff under a cut for those of us who want to actually read the book without prior knowledge?  Thanks.

many many many other things behind the cut, to save my flist from teh ginormous post of doom )

And I think I'll stop there.  And maybe try to post more often? :P  Hope everyone is having a good day.

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?

This week's <lj comm

What are your five favorite villains (and why)?

In HP
  1. Draco Malfoy - There's just something enticing about a villain that has the possibility of redemption.
  2. Lucius Malfoy - Because, even irredeemable, he's powerful, blond, and hell, because he's played by Jason Isaacs.
  3. Severus Snape - Okay, not really technically a villain per se, but he doesn't get along with Harry, so he's not a "good guy" either.  He's just so complex.
  4. Bellatrix Lestrange - I don't write her much, or even read her enough.  But I do find her fascinating.  She's a woman in a world where she's surrounded by men, and she's obviously got more power than the men in her family (look at the description of her husband and brother-in-law in GOF).  We've only heard of two women DEs so far, I believe, and that makes her pretty unique.
  5. Narcissa Malfoy - Only vaguely counts as a villain, but she's against Harry, so there you go.  One would think, with her name, her major concern would be saving her own arse, but she honestly seems to care for her son and for her husband, and you have to admire that.
Others:
  1. Diana from V.  She was just a little self-absorbed, honestly! :D  She was always fun to watch, because even though she thought she was slick and in charge, someone always managed to see through whatever scheme she was up to.
  2. Winnowill from Elfquest. Evil with a capital EV. :P  I love her look: tall and slender, pale skin and hair longer than she is tall.  I love her confidence, even if she's actually internally as mad as Bellatrix Lestrange is, because she never allows her weakness to show, even as madness.  And Power, Power, Power.
  3. Miss Parker from the Pretender.  Another who had the possibility of redemption.  I loved her snootyness, but also how the memory clips show just how open and trusting she was as a girl.
  4. Ra in Stargate the movie.  Oh, lovely evil.  How can I not enjoy watching Jaye Davidson play an Egyptian god? :D  I can't wait to see who they get to be the villain in the next movie.
  5. Drusilla in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel.  Crazy evil.  And siring your grandsire?  How effing cool is that? :D
See?  I like girls!  Just not...HP ones much.

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

Gacked from [info]bookshop

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...

1. What movies are you fannish about?
Too many to count, but I'll list a bunch anyway.
  • Star Wars saga (mostly the original trilogy)
  • Indiana Jones series
  • Terminator
  • Pirates of the Caribbean
  • Moulin Rouge
  • Matrix (the first more than the later two
  • Stargate
I think you get the idea... ;)

2. What upcoming movies do you expect to be fannish about?
  • Serenity
  • Corpse Bride
  • Goblet of Fire
  • King Kong
I'll be seeing others, but those are the ones I'm most excited about.

3. Movie adaptations of your fannish tv shows: good idea or bad idea?
Depends on who's doing the adaptation.  If it's the originals, or those who care deeply for the original, good, if it's studio-run, bad.

4. If they have to make a movie of a fannish tv show, do you want the original actors and premise, or is an updated premise acceptable?
Depends on the show.  Older shows should be an updated premise in general, with cameos of originals if possible.  New shows should have some or all of the original cast members, because if they don't want to do it, that's nto a good sign.

5. Would you rather have a made for tv fannish movie or do you want the big screen?
Depends on the source material.  And who's making it. And the budget.

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

Name your five favorite little-know actor or actresses.


Hmmmm....
1. Keith Hamilton Cobb, aka the most gorgeous man on the planet...Andromeda, All My Children

2. Christopher Judge, Stargate SG1

3. Duncan Regehr, V the Series, Star Trek: DS9

4. Clancy Brown, Earth 2, and just about everything else... :)

5. Chloe Webb, Tales of the City, Twins, Sid & Nancy

Yikes, that took me a long time...

This week's <lj comm

Who are your five favorite characters of color?

Teal'c - Stargate SG1 - Played by the ever-so-lovely Christopher Judge.  I love his attitude towards life, and his very dry sense of humor.

Tyr Anasazi - Andromeda -  I watched this show, not because of Gene Roddenbury (because it was really barely his creation, and look what they did with it, after all...), but because of Keith Hamilton Cobb, who not only was one of the earliest actors cast for this show, but also helped to create the alien race he was to become a part of. 

Chakotay - Star Trek: Voyager - Now, here was a man of the nineties.  Supporting his woman, even if he didn't get to win her.  Sensitive, yet strong, he was always exactly what was needed.

Hoshi Sato - Star Trek: Enterprise - The only female on this list, mostly because I wasn't sure if B'Elanna Torres counts.  I loved how she didn't really WANT to be on the ship, but went anyway, and  her talent with languages which I have really only seen rivaled in Daniel Jackson on Stargate.  Really the only character I particularly enjoyed on this show before I stopped watching. 

Ruby Rhod - Fifth Element - As annoying as he is in some scenes, in others, he is the best part of the scene.  I love the charicature Chris Tucker created here.  He keeps some of the later scenes from getting to heavy, and he's just fun to watch.


ETA: Realized because of this entry that I had a serious Icon deficiency. So, what does everyone think of my new Star Trek icon? :D

Jan. 16th, 2005

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
