krickets: (KILLING. we're back here again.)
[livejournal.com profile] ozmissage gave me this meme after lengthy discussions about "what our shipping and character preference say about us." This one's just about characters, maybe I'll alter it and do a "pairings" one later.

List fifteen (or however many) of your favorite characters from different fandoms and ask people to spot patterns in your choices, if they're so inclined.

Not a comprehensive list, more of a sampling.
Duke Crocker, Haven
Gale Hawthorne, The Hunger Games (books)
Stephen Holder, The Killing
Chon McAlister, Savages & Kings of Cool (books)
Sawyer Ford, Lost (pre-season 5, sorry guys)
Kenzi, Lost Girl (picking only one from this fandom was hard... because Tamsin!)
Pacey Witter, Dawson's Creek
Felix, Orphan Black
Topher Brink, Dollhouse
Hanna Marin, Pretty Little Liars
Fiona Gallagher, Shameless US (also a hard choice! because Karen! And Lip! But mostly Karen.)
Clayton "Jonesy" Jones, Carnivale
Brad Colbert, Generation Kill
Buffy Summers, Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Veronica Mars, Veronica Mars
Kara Thrace, Battlestar Galactica
Katherine Pierce, The Vampire Diaries
Cristina Yang, Grey's Anatomy
Brian Kinney, Queer as Folk US
Malcolm Reynolds, Firefly

For the record, there were certain fandoms *cough*FridayNightLights*cough* that I just couldn't pick one favorite character. It was just too cruel.

I can never watch this scene enough:


GOD this show was so good.

Day 3 - For each of the fandoms from day two, what were your favorite characters to write? {I'm only doing a few of these!)

Dawson's Creek: I couldn't really tell you. I loved Pacey and Joey but I'm not sure I did a very good job writing them.

The Vampire Diaries: Caroline, Stefan, and Tyler. If it isn't already obvious. I find Tyler the most shippable character on that show so he's actually probably topping this list.

Lost: Jack, Claire, Sawyer... with Alex and Richard bringing up the rear.

Dollhouse: Alpha & Echo (I would totally say Mag and Zone if I'd ever written those characters, LOVE THEM.)

Harper's Island: I don't really have a favorite. Maybe Henry and Shane?

Battlestar Galactica: Kara, Leoben, Sam, Chief... and though I have never written her in fic (a tragedy, yes) I write Ellen Tigh in my brain every day.



Day 4 – Do you have a "muse" character, that speaks to you more than others, or that tries to push their way in, even when the fic isn't about them? Who are they, and why did that character became your muse?
Right now it's Tyler Lockwood from The Vampire Diaries, but I tend to find myself injecting Sawyer or Jack into Lost fics when they're not really in the fic. Claire too, but she's usually the subject of the fics she's in. I can't think of anybody else really.



Day 5 – If you have ever had a character try to push their way into a fic, whether your "muse" or not, what did you do about it?
I probably subtly insinuated they were sleeping with/had slept with one or more of the characters that the fic was about. Is that bad?



Day 6 – When you write, do you prefer writing male or female characters?
I have no preference whatsoever. I feel like I write male and female characters equally and I enjoy them equally.



Day 7 – Have you ever had a fic change your opinion of a character?
I think any time I write a character for the first time this tends to happen. I feel like there are characters that I have written who I only found marginally interesting but after writing them I kind of fall in love with them or fall in love with a pairing. I think Alpha/Echo is a good example of that. Because I didn't have the highest opinion of either of them before writing them, but I ended up loving them. after writing them together. There are other instances where I feel like writing a character hasn't necessarily made me change my opinion on a character, but it's made me appreciate them more. Claire Littleton of Lost and Tyler Lockwood of The Vampire Diaries are good examples of that.

Saw this in a screencap today:

"Have hope.

Not going to lie. I am still tearing up right now. I need to re-watch this frakking show.

krickets: (FILM. why so mean?)
→ They're taking prompts over at the BSG PornBattle! Mostly predictable but some random prompting on my part. [Baltar/Paulla? Why does that feel so perfect?] Go prompt!

→ Dear fandom, You know what's unattractive? Gloating. I mean, why does everything have to come down to ships? Gloating? Seriously? Not cool. I need to write a non-shipper multi-shipper manifesto or something. And I so totally would... if I actually cared that much. Mine is a stress free world. (Does that count as gloating?)

→ TV Checklist. I'm currently behind on Dollhouse and Big Love. I am caught up on TSCC. And... I will never ever be behind on BSG again. *tears*

→ Holy crap! Battlestar is over! I don't think it's sunk in yet. I might be repeating that over and over all week.

→ Homeworking and audio-booking today... probably. How do I get myself into these things?

→ Quick fic!rec: Unfettered by [livejournal.com profile] sionnain, finale missing scene fic, Kara/Leoben, pg, and frakking amazing and perfect. My new canon. ;)
