Autumn-cocoa

Mememememe

I'm doing random computer housekeeping tasks (cleaning up tabs, getting stuff off my desktop, etc), and feel like playing a bit while I do it, so here's a meme seen on a few people's journals -

Pick a fandom and I'll tell you...
- The first character I fell in love with:
- The character who is my ‘baby’:
- The character who I do not understand:
- The character that I think the show ruined:
- The most attractive male and female character:
- The character death that was the worst for me:
- The character that is the most like me:
- The character I think the writer(s) love:
- The character that I just want to be happy:
- My four favorite characters, past or present:
- My four least favorite characters, past or present:


Anything that I've seen/read enough of to be at least vaguely familiar with the characters is fair game.

Fandoms done so far: White Collar, Dresden Files, Carnivale, MCU, Person of Interest, Highlander, Stargate Atlantis, Marvel 616, Avatar: The Last Airbender, X-Men movies

That was definitely inevitable. :)

- The first character I fell in love with: Peter, within a couple of episodes. Inasmuch as I have a fictional "type", he's totally it (well, one of the two primary types that I go for, the "physically strong, quiet, loyal one"; my other big "type" is the smart, snarky iconoclast)
- The character who is my ‘baby’: Peeeeeeter ♥
- The character who I do not understand: Calloway. What is she even supposed to be DOING? Is she evil? Being blackmailed? A well-intentioned cop with legitimate concerns about Our Heroes running roughshod over the law? The fact that she disappears in season five makes me think the writers don't know either. :P
- The character that I think the show ruined: Kate, to an extent. There was so much to work with, and yet the writers never really seemed to have a clear idea what to do with her, and then killed her off. I wouldn't say ruined exactly, but she definitely got screwed over by the writing to a greater extent than anyone else.
- The most attractive male and female character: Neal and Kate. They are both so beautiful that I can't even believe they're real.
- The character death that was the worst for me: Ellen! I'm still not over that.
- The character that is the most like me: Elizabeth, probably
- The character I think the writer(s) love: Neal. Although they also love to torment him.
- The character that I just want to be happy: EVERYBODY. But Neal more than most, since his life is really awful and I'd like to see the show end with him in a happy place. I want them all to be happy, though!
- My four favorite characters, past or present: Peter, Neal, Diana, Mozzie (+ Elizabeth sneaking in as a fifth XD)
- My four least favorite characters, past or present: hmmm, there's not really anybody I don't like, except some of the villains? But I like a lot of the villains too! (Keller, Hagan, Rachel ...). I suppose Fowler and Pratt come to mind as characters I didn't really connect with ...
Ha, yes, your guess is probably right. :D

- The first character I fell in love with: Carter, I think (it's hard to remember now)
- The character who is my ‘baby’: Fusco
- The character who I do not understand: Root
- The character that I think the show ruined: Carter, by KILLING HER
- The most attractive male and female character: Reese and Carter
- The character death that was the worst for me: Carter
- The character that is the most like me: hmm, Carter maybe
- The character I think the writer(s) love: The Machine
- The character that I just want to be happy: Fusco
- My four favorite characters, past or present: Fusco, Carter, Finch, and Bear
- My four least favorite characters, past or present: Root, Reese, creepy little mafia guy whose name I can't remember now
- The first character I fell in love with: Tessa
- The character who is my ‘baby’: hmmm, Duncan probably
- The character who I do not understand: Methos, though I think that's entirely by design - we're not really supposed to!
- The character that I think the show ruined: no one really, although you could make an argument that the end of season five ruined pretty much EVERYBODY
- The most attractive male and female character: Duncan and Amanda
- The character death that was the worst for me: Tessa - although it's hard to choose, because this show had a TON of traumatic character deaths! I think Tessa's death was the worst, though, because that was the turning point from the show (and Duncan's life) being generally pretty upbeat, into more or less a steady downward slide of death and tragedy. At least subsequent deaths weren't so shocking.
- The character that is the most like me: Tessa
- The character I think the writer(s) love: Methos
- The character that I just want to be happy: Duncan
- My four favorite characters, past or present: Duncan, Amanda, Joe, Methos
- My four least favorite characters, past or present: it's been long enough now that I don't remember the characters I didn't like well enough to make a list! The guy that killed Fitz is definitely on the list, though ...
- The first character I fell in love with: John and Rodney in equal measure
- The character who is my ‘baby’: Rodney
- The character who I do not understand: Kanann (sp?) - I wish we'd gotten more of a sense of his relationship with Teyla, or what she saw in him, or who he was at all, really.
- The character that I think the show ruined: Elizabeth - more or less from the get-go, I don't think they did justice to her point of view, and then the circumstances surrounding her death and resurrection and death again were just a miserable mess.
- The most attractive male and female character: Ronon and Teyla
- The character death that was the worst for me: Carson, not so much because I was that attached to him, but it kicked off the Keller vs. Carson thing in the fandom, which I really hated. And since I came into the fandom at the end of season two, I'd gotten attached to a particular incarnation of characters, and it was difficult to handle it changing - though really, for me, it was more difficult to handle the fandom's reaction than the actual show. I thought it was interesting to see how the character dynamics changed through the shakeups in the cast, but it made the fandom pretty miserable.
- The character that is the most like me: Keller
- The character I think the writer(s) love: Rodney
- The character that I just want to be happy: Ronon
- My four favorite characters, past or present: John, Rodney, Teyla, Ronon
- My four least favorite characters, past or present: I don't really have any, at least in the sense of characters I actively disliked. There were some I liked less than the rest (Carson, Elizabeth) but I pretty much liked everybody.
Ooh. :D Some of these will be slightly tricky to answer, since I started reading Marvel in the early to mid 80s, so it's been a looooong time.

- The first character I fell in love with: Hard to remember now, but it was probably either Kitty Pryde or Magneto
- The character who is my ‘baby’: Bucky ♥
- The character who I do not understand: Professor X. Despite a deep fondness for Charles and Erik going back almost three decades (!!!), I don't think I've ever quite been able to grasp if the writers just exactly how creepy, invasive and manipulative they often wrote Charles. Although, depending on who's writing them, just about every character goes through periods of "wtf are you even doing, did you have a total personality transplant when I wasn't looking."
- The character that I think the show writers ruined: Well, EVERYONE at one point or another. Comics: if you like a particular version of the characters, just wait a few months and they'll change! I'm still mildly bitter over a lot of the stuff that happened with several different X-Men (Gambit and Nightcrawler in particular), and based upon spoilers for this week's comics, it seems they may be in the process of wrecking Bucky. Well, being a comics fan gives you lots of practice in compartmentalizing away unwanted canon.
- The most attractive male and female character: For me right now, I gotta go with Bucky and Natasha. Not that they don't have plenty of stiff competition.
- The character death that was the worst for me: Danny Rand wayyyyy back in Power Man & Iron Fist in the 80s, because I was really invested in those characters and they ended the series by killing one of the two leads and framing the other for his murder, and then left him dead for decades. Luckily he's better now.
- The character that is the most like me: probably Kitty
- The character I think the writer(s) love: Wolverine
- The character that I just want to be happy: Bucky
- My four favorite characters, past or present: Bucky, Misty Knight, Magneto, America Chavez (but it changes ALL THE TIME; ask me tomorrow and it could be different!)
- My four least favorite characters, past or present: The only one that really comes to mind is Wolverine because he's in everything and I really wish they'd stop. Although there are quite a lot of characters I'm either indifferent to, or haven't seen enough of to have an opinion on.
- The first character I fell in love with: Daniel Jackson. Way back in the MOVIE. Although Michael Shanks' version didn't hurt.
- The character who is my ‘baby’: Teal'c
- The character who I do not understand: Jonas. At the time, I was resentful of Jonas for STEALING DANIEL'S PLACE ON THE TEAM; in retrospect, though, I'm just vaguely confused by him - I don't think the writers ever had a clear vision for who Jonas was, why he was on the team, or how his culture defined him. Cam and Vala's additions to the team felt much more organic and natural - and I didn't even LIKE Cam! (For various reasons.)
- The character that I think the show ruined: I absolutely HATED the way Daniel related to Vala in the final episodes of season ten, between trying to emotionally blackmail her into reconciling with her abusive father, and being a total dick to her in "Unending". I really liked the relationship up to that point, but ... Daniel ... why. *kicks him*
- The most attractive male and female character: Teal'c and Sam
- The character death that was the worst for me: Daniel in season five. I stopped watching the show for a really long time after that. (Naturally he got better - he's DANIEL - but that was my breakup with the show until I drifted back into it in season 9/10 via SGA.)
- The character that is the most like me: Daniel, probably
- The character I think the writer(s) love: .... Daniel /o\
- The character that I just want to be happy: Teal'c
- My four favorite characters, past or present: Teal'c, Sam, Daniel, Jack (+Vala!)
- My four least favorite characters, past or present: Leaving aside people possessed by Goa'uld ... Cam, Adria, Tomin, Vala's father (I STILL HATE THAT EPISODE - except for the end scene with Vala and Sam, that can stay)
