Gakked from [personal profile] honorh: Name a character and I'll tell you three (or more) facts about them from my own personal pseudo-canon.

Fandoms I can answer to: Sailor Moon, Ranma 1/2, Blood+, Firefly, Buffy, Angel, Doctor Who 2005 - onwards, SG-1 (seasons 8-10), Farscape, Smallville, Heroes and West Wing

And, oh, this is how it's done.

Oh, and I've been noticing a trend in Who fandom these days... the way they beat on Rose-- Rose is not perfect character but I don't think it warrants the hate she's been getting, it's also bad form to cut on her just to raise another character. Whatever fandom there is I don't think it's good for fans to bring down a character so they can raise up another character. It's just bad form.

Quest II

I was surprised how emotionally engaged I was watching this.

I watched Quest II immediately after reading Palimpset by [personal profile] paian. An AU after Quest I, this is a darker vision of what Quest II could have been and even if they diverged in paths somehow the emotional intensity, in a way, paralleled the characters in Quest II.

Smallville - Hydro

I really liked this episode, one of the enjoyable episodes of this season.
Lois recs:

One of the hardest things to find is a good smallville Lois story with equally great characterizations, here are the few I've managed to find.

First Time, Upon Returning to Metropolis by [personal profile] huzzlewhat- Futurefic, Lois and Clark return to Metropolis. Great Lois voice and plausible story how Lois and Clark meet and fall in love with a killer last line.

The first time Superman met Lois Lane, it was in midair, as she was falling from a roof at the time. When he put her down on solid ground, her smile was dazed but open.

She’d only been moments from a very messy death, but he wouldn’t have been able to tell if he hadn’t been the one to catch her. “I’m guessing that you’re not exactly from around here.”

Growing up is seeing by [personal profile] supacat - Written before Crusade. Futurefic, Chloe, Lana Lois. The three women in Clark's life and Clark.

There's some kind of fracas at the Daily Planet. Lois turns up with a sticking plaster on her forehead, and Clark's eyes go dark with concern. He's rising from his seat.

"Lois, what happened?" he says, at the same time that Lois says, "Sorry I'm late."

Lana would have said, "It's nothing. I'm just a little shaken."

Chloe, shaken, would have said, "You should see the other guy."

Lois says, "It's nothing. What's good to eat?"

Sofa, 3 am by [personal profile] supacat- set after Gone.  Clark and Lois at 3 am. Excellent Lois voice and characterization at the early stages of their friendship and Clark's perpetually annoyed at Lois.

Clark is sure that surrendering his room to Lana would feel different: sweet and noble and right, and she'd say, "You don't have to do that for me, Clark," and he'd get to say, "No, I want to," and get lost in her eyes. He can't imagine Lois saying, "You don't have to do that for me, Clark." He can't imagine gazing into her eyes . . . well, he can, but not without her saying, "What are you looking at?" in the same tone Pete would have said it, in the same tone Chloe used to say, "Freakazoid," in sixth grade. It's annoying. Confusing. Annoying. Clark attempts to wrest his blanket out from under Lois's legs, and with it control of the conversation. He resorts to powers when it doesn't come on the first tug.

Dealing with the Unexpected by [personal profile] seperis. Clark/Lex, Lois. Futurefic, mpreg. Clark realizes he's pregnant with Lex's child. It shouldn't work but it does. ROTFL kind of hilarious.  Not only is it funny but [personal profile] seperis has an excellent, fabulously funny Lois voice.

If you get a girl knocked up, you marry her. And if you get knocked up, well--you tell the father.

Lois, following him into LexCorp headquarters, is staring holes in the back of his head. "I'll marry you," she finally says, sounding desperate, and Clark would be touched if she hadn't walked out on him once saying she'd rather lie down with cows from his farm, but with a lot more cursing and added bonus of an engagement ring thrown at his head. "You can be a stay at home dad. I'm very well-paid."


"I need a crew at Clark Kent's apartment," Lex says shortly. "Move everything to the penthouse. Now."

"Are you *kidding*?" Lois screeches, and Clark closes his eyes and gives up. "You think I'm going to let him be trapped into one of your schemes for world domination while he's knocked up and *helpless*?"

Oh dear God. Clark squeezes his eyes shut and concentrates on his stomach. This would be a perfect time for a good fit of nausea. At least then they'd *shut up*. "Guys," he says more firmly, with no anticipation of anyone hearing a word he says.

"What the hell are you going to do about it?" Lex taunts, and oh, that's so stupid, so incredibly, incredibly stupid. It's like he never met Lois.

"I'm moving in too."

After fiddling and fiddling and fiddling I finally got the layout right, once again much thanks to [profile] starlingsby100 for the layout script and the background image. 

If you think my obsession for Veronica Mars has waned, you are very much mistaken my friend. Very, very much. In fact, I've recently found Veronica Mars music blog, informative site on the music used in VM and the VM soundtrack. One thing I really love about VM is its use of music, they don't use the popular, much played music but they use a mix of everything. I think because of my fandoms (Supernatural, Buffy and Veronica Mars) I'm discovering a lot of music I wouldn't normally be exposed to. 

[profile] chrisleeoctaves asked about fictional relationships we're drawn to, these are mine:

It's a mixed bag. I like couples who can be comfortable together and on occasion act without angst. I like couples who mistrust each other and couples who work at trusting each other.

It depends on how a couple makes it work, but recently I've just had this dislike for 'soulmates' and find myself liking people who love each other for being who they are.

Buffy/Angel - My first ever 'ship. Although, now, I can accept they can be with other people. They're both growing and learning independent of each other.

Jack/Irina (Alias)- This couple are just incendiary, and yes, they also do the intense look well. They've got issues a crater wide but what sells this relationship for me is how Irina's betrayal had really broken Jack but he will never be over her. I love that Irina does truly love Jack and Sydney but it doesn't stop her from pursuing her own agenda and sometimes that agenda forces her to go against them. I love that she's so complete without Jack but also she could love him so well.

Sydney/Weiss (Alias) - I know they were never a couple but I love the possibility of them together, I love that Weiss can offer this uncomplicated, angst free relationship for her and still be a professional. I love that Weiss finally had Nadia to care for and that he was the best boyfriend ever.
