Borrowed from six.

un. Give me two pairings or two characters or two fandoms.
I'll choose between them and tell you why.

deux. Tell me a fandom I know and I'll give you:

1. The first character I fell in love with
2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now
3. The character everyone else loves that I don't

5. The character I used to love but don't any longer
6. The character I would shag anytime
7. The character I'd want to be like
8. The character I'd slap
9. A pairing that I love
10. A pairing that I despise

1. Ten/Rose and Katniss/Peeta

2. Doctor Who
25th-Aug-2012 03:35 pm (UTC)
I gotta go with Ten/Rose. I enjoy Katniss/Peeta, but the Doctor and Rose's story is pretty incomparable IMO.

Doctor Who

1. The first character I fell in love with
Ten. I watched TCI and was totally hooked.
2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now
Mickey! He grew so much from S1 and becomes a total boss in Pete's World.
3. The character everyone else loves that I don't
Hmm... probably Amy. I don't hate her, I just feel like I don't know her, even after 2 years.
4. The character I love that everyone else hates
I love Rose, who is loathed by a lot of online fans. I feel validated that casual fans often identify her as the favourite companion in online polls. :D
5. The character I used to love but don't any longer
River. Was indifferent in S4, loved her in S5, and S6... was a trainwreck.
6. The character I would shag anytime
Jack, since he'd be up for it anytime. ;-)
7. The character I'd want to be like
Martha. She's probably the smartest companion, and is incredibly brave.
8. The character I'd slap
Eleven, for his extreme douchiness throughout S6.
9. A pairing that I love
Doctor/Rose! I don't go in much for Eleven/Rose but I'm open to many other pairings.
10. A pairing that I despise
Ten/River. I find it really hard to imagine Ten falling for anyone besides Rose.

and also, if I can remember:
11. Why it piqued my interest in the first place
Through fanfic, oddly enough. In July 2008 I was on the Pit of Voles browsing a fairly talented author's page, and noticed she'd written a lot for Doctor Who. I read one of the Doctor/Rose fics and was intrigued. So I found JE on YouTube, which was a terrible idea since I had NO IDEA who anyone was. I went back and watched "Rose", then jumped ahead to TCI. And the rest was history.
12. A favorite thing about it now
The awesome friends I've met through it!
25th-Aug-2012 01:14 pm (UTC)
1. Avengers or Doctor Who?

2. Harry Potter! :D
25th-Aug-2012 04:16 pm (UTC)
Nooo an impossible choice! Quid pro quo I guess lol.

Fandom-wise, I have to choose Doctor Who. I've been involved with it for longer and I keep coming back to it. :3

Harry Potter

1. The first character I fell in love with
Hermione. Like many fans, I identified with the brainy bookworm right away.
2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now
Kreacher. Finding out the truth of his story was heartbreaking. I loved how after the Trio showed him kindness, he took it upon himself to take care of them.
3. The character everyone else loves that I don't
Can't think of any atm, sorry!
4. The character I love that everyone else hates
Ginny. She gets so much hate even 5 years later. :-/
5. The character I used to love but don't any longer
Draco Malfoy. Until we found out his parents aren't really abusive and he's just an entitled racist jackass. I like to think he got a little more tolerant after the war however.
6. The character I would shag anytime
Sirius Black, pre-war.
7. The character I'd want to be like
McGonagall. She's tough and doesn't take anyone's shit.
8. The character I'd slap
Umbridge. How I love to hate her...
9. A pairing that I love
Ron/Hermione. I also love James/Lily and Neville/Luna, and have a soft spot for Rose/Scorpius.
10. A pairing that I despise
I used to hate Harry/Hermione... now I'm mostly indifferent. Ship and let ship!

and also, if I can remember:
11. Why it piqued my interest in the first place
My dad heard about the books on CBC radio, and managed to reserve the first 3 at the library. After reading GoF, I went through a painful withdrawal and went online to fill the void. Despite reading a lot of badfic, I think I emerged mostly sane.
12. A favorite thing about it now
That I can pick up any of the books and get sucked right back into the magic.
26th-Aug-2012 11:22 pm (UTC)
Mwahahahahaha, vengeance! *shakes fist* XD

Bleugh, yeah, I felt the same about Draco. D:
27th-Aug-2012 03:47 am (UTC)
We've all been there with some woobie or another. And hey, with the Trope Namer of Draco in Leather Pants-ing no less! Really, we deserve props. :D
27th-Aug-2012 04:56 am (UTC)
I still like the Slytherins-are-misunderstood fics, ngl. XD
28th-Aug-2012 01:32 am (UTC)
Yeah... I didn't have a lot of gripes with DH, but one of them was the blanket assumption that all Slytherins were traitors and must leave Hogwarts because of something Pansy Parkinson said. Just one loyal Slytherin would have been nice. ;_;
28th-Aug-2012 09:08 pm (UTC)
That broke my heart, it did. I've been used to seeing greys by then and was disappointed it was all so black and white.
28th-Aug-2012 11:50 pm (UTC)
Yeah it was a let-down for sure. :-(
29th-Sep-2012 10:28 pm (UTC)
1. Snow/Charming or Rumpelstilskin/Belle

2. How I Met Your Mother
30th-Sep-2012 06:02 am (UTC)
Snow/Charming vs. Rumpelstiltskin/Belle

Noooo that's an impossible choice! I loved Snow/Charming from the first episode, and of course Belle wasn't introduced until later. But Rumpelstiltskin/Belle gave me a lot of immediate strong feelings...

*coin toss*

Rumpelstilskin/Belle it is!

How I Met Your Mother

1. The first character I fell in love with
Marshall. He's such a sweetheart.
2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now
Barney. He's a cad but he's so damn funny and charming.
3. The character everyone else loves that I don't
Patrice I guess. I find her annoying.
4. The character I love that everyone else hates
Not too sure. Maybe Kevin; I like Kal Penn. That said, the doctor/patient relationship trope really skeeves me out, maybe because of how much Professionalism has been drilled into me.
5. The character I used to love but don't any longer
Well, I'm liking Victoria less than I used to... :-(
6. The character I would shag anytime
Barney, since no-strings-attached sex is his specialty. I'd rather marry Ted though.
7. The character I'd want to be like
Robin. Someday I will learn to drink scotch like her.
8. The character I'd slap
At this moment in time: Victoria, for making Ted deliver her note to her fiance. Do your own dirty work for Pete's sake.
9. A pairing that I love
Barney/Robin of course! ♥
10. A pairing that I despise
Barney/Quinn. Barney/Nora was tolerable, but I am not a fan of Quinn.

and also, if I can remember:
11. Why it piqued my interest in the first place
I'd heard good things about it online and decided to check it out.
12. A favorite thing about it now
Besides the fact that Barney and Robin are endgame, the fact that the creators have an actual ending in mind. Hopefully they'll pull the plug after this season so it can go out with a bang and not a whimper.
30th-Sep-2012 08:20 am (UTC)
Oh no, I could never marry somebody like Ted. But then again, I don't want to get married. Anyway, Ted is actually the character I like least out of the five because he gets on my nerves so much. I love Victoria (I haven't seen the season premiere yet) and I'm glad she's back. So if we can only get rid of Quinn now, I'll be perfectly happy. Also, who the hell likes Patrice? She's terribly annoying.
30th-Sep-2012 04:21 pm (UTC)
Ted can for sure be annoying, but I love his dorkiness and romantic side. What can I say? :-)

Oops I'm sorry for spoiling that for you! >.<

Based on the reactions in the comments at the Barney/Robin comm, Patrice is adored by more than one person over there. I'm glad to hear I'm not alone!

Don't worry about it; I never care if I'm spoiled for shows. Plus, if I did care I would have to stay away from Tumblr, LOL.

Really? Wow, I never would have expected that.
30th-Sep-2012 08:55 pm (UTC)
Okay, good to hear. ^-^
