Fandom interests meme


Tags: ,
Ganked from mrstater. I might not reply to your comments until late tonight. My mom and I are going to try to clean the grandparents' house today since neither of them are really capable of dusting, mopping, etc.

Name a fandom you know I know and I'll tell you:

01. The first character I first fell in love with
02. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now
03. The character everyone else loves that I don't
04. The character I love that everyone else hates
05. The character I used to love but don't any longer
06. The character I would shag anytime
07. The character I'd want to be like
08. The character I'd slap
09. A pairing that I love
10. A pairing that I despise

Not to be too obvious, or anything ;).

01. The first character I first fell in love with

I kind of liked a lot of characters at first. Dumbledore seemed cool in an eccentric, fun-crazy, and intelligent kind of way. I liked Harry for maintaining a sense of right and wrong despite how he was raised. I kind of dug Hermione since I've always been a bookworm. But the first time I really fell in LOVE with a Harry Potter character was Remus. He's been my favorite character since I first read PoA and will never be replaced.

02. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now

Probably Mad-Eye. Fandom has made me see more fun to him than I did when I first read the books.

03. The character everyone else loves that I don't

I'm going to preface this with no offense intended. With some other people, I might tread more carefully, but I know you've got a thick skin and will take my opinion as just my opinion that I'm not trying to impose on anyone else so I feel I can be honest.

Lily. I am sick to death of "everyone and their brother was in love with young Lily" in fandom theories. I really won't be upset if Remus or Snape turn out to have had a strong crush on her. But fandom's insistence on Remus AND Snape (not to mention Malfoy, Voldemort, Sirius, Peter, every male character older than Harry) crushing on her is just getting to be overkill and makes me never want to hear her name again.

04. The character I love that everyone else hates

I'm not really sure there is one. I like Ron quite a bit and he has some major detractors in fandom (largely the Harry/Hermione crowd) but I wouldn't say everyone else hates him. I love Umbridge for her role in the series and think she is an invaluable character, but I don't like her as an individual. I can't think of anyone else that would come close.

05. The character I used to love but don't any longer

Sirius. I liked him at the end of PoA and GoF but saw too much of his negatives in OotP. Perhaps it's not fair of me to judge him based on when he was a his lowest, but the flashback didn't help matters any.

06. The character I would shag anytime

Duh. Remus. Well, not anytime. Full moons are right out!

07. The character I'd want to be like

Young Dumbeldore or Remus, though I quite like being female and wouldn't want boy bits.

08. The character I'd slap

Fudge and Scrimgeour.

09. A pairing that I love

I'm all about canon. Remus/Tonks, Harry/Ginny, Ron/Hermione, in that order of preference.

10. A pairing that I despise

In canon, there really isn't anything I despise. In fanon, all the "bad"/"good" pairings of Draco/Hermione, Draco/Ginny, Draco/Harry, Harry/Snape, Snape/Sirius, etc. drive me up a wall.

01. The first character I first fell in love with

The Ewoks! I always hated sci-fi as a kid (I still don't like a lot of hard core stuff) and refused to watch the Star Wars movies. My sister was watching Return of the Jedi one day. I came down stairs and watched a bit over her shoulder. These little bear things were fighting this battle and I thought it was so cool. I yelled "Attack of the Killer Teddy Bears!" and sat down to watch the end of the movie and have been in love ever since.

02. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now

Lando, which is probably a cheap answer. I mean, when you first meet him, he is betraying an old friend and shows himself to be scum essentially. Then he redeems himself and becomes cool.

03. The character everyone else loves that I don't

Leia. It isn't that I hate her, I just think she has been wasted in the novels and it is a really big shame. I do love her in the movie and wish I could love her in the novels, but for most of it, the authors just make it impossible. Shame.

04. The character I love that everyone else hates

The Ewoks are fairly reviled in fandom. I'm also a big fan of Mara Jade Skywalker when she is written well and she is one of the polarizing characters that some people love and some despise with a passion.

05. The character I used to love but don't any longer

Leia could work well for here. Also, Boba Fett. He was a great silent, mystery character in the movies and the more the books flesh him out the less interesting he becomes.

06. The character I would shag anytime

Han.

07. The character I'd want to be like

Of the main, well known, character, probably Luke. Of the non-movie characters, probably Tionne who is a Jedi and historian of the Jedi Order.

08. The character I'd slap

Right now, Jacen Solo. He is Han and Leia's son and he is basically following Grandpa Vader's path straight to the dark side with his latest act being killing his aunt.

09. A pairing that I love

When all characters involved are written well, I love Luke/Mara and Han/Leia. I also want Jag/Jaina, which probably means nothing to you :)

10. A pairing that I despise

Jaina/Kyp. He is a friend of her father and they just weird me out. Besides, I like Jaina/Jag so I have to hate Jaina/anyone else, right?
