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.

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:

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.

New Meme! :D

Gacked from  [info]musesfool

If there's one constant in every fandom, it's the bashing of female characters. {note: I did not write the text of this meme. Take your arguments up with the person who did} List your favourite 10 female characters of any fandom and why you like these girls/women.

Long list of ladies )

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!
