Happy Saturday to you!

Favourite character: Damon Salvatore. Do I need to explain?
Least Favourite character: Matt, I guess. That's tough, because I'm really not good at disliking characters. At the end of 2s I practically loved everybody, but s3 Matt got too boring for me.
5 Favourite ships (canon or non-canon): Damon/Elena, Damon/Elena/Stefan, Damon/Alaric, Caroline/Tyler, Damon/Katherine (do I just ship Damon with everybody? o_O)
Character I find most attractive: Caroline. I mean, just look at her. She is pretty, she is charming, she has an amazing smile, and the Jackie Kennedy costume was MINDBLOWING. If I didn't have to choose just one, I'd also add Katherine.
Character I would marry: Alaric. I know he isn't perfect, and if someone lied to me the way he lied to Jenna I'd probably kick his sorry ass, but still. He is a decent guy, we'd make a good team and read the hell out of every Viking scripture on our way!
Character I would be best friends with: Damon... Don't look at me like that! I'm being a realist here. He doesn't talk about his feelings, he puts up a show and does many other things that sound familiar. Many of my friends are at least a bit like Damon.
A random thought: I'm always waiting for flashback episodes, and I love them to bits, even if it turns out that flashbacks actually suck. I have a thing for flashbacks, just like I have a thing for pre-series.
An unpopular opinion: it's rather a fandom thing than a show thing, but let's say it. I HATE fics in which vampires bite people during sex. HATE HATE HATE. It's not romantic. It's not sexy. It can't be pleasant for a person getting bitten. I have NO IDEA how did it become such a popular trope, but I blame True Blood, and now TVD fanfiction is contaminated. WHYYYYYYYYYY? :(
Canon OTP: Damon/Elena counts as canon, right?
Non-canon OTP: Damon/Alaric
Most badass character: Elena! She is just a human girl surrounded by vampires, and yet she can escape a werewolf, she can kill an Original, she can take control over her own life, she is brave enough to say that she doesn't want to be a vampire... Be more awesome, Elena, I dare you!
Pairing I am not a fan of: Matt/Caroline
Character I feel the writers screwed up (in one way or another): Jenna. I will never forgive them for killing Jenna! First they kept her in the dark, so she was barely a part of the plot, they they got me all excited (VAMP!JENNA, OMG, SHE WILL BE MADE OF AWESOME, WHEN IS THE NEXT EPISODE, I WANT MOOOOOOORE!!!), and then they killed her. SUCH A WASTE OF POTENTIAL.
Favourite friendship: the Salvatores
Character I want to adopt or be adopted by: I guess I could be adopted by Jenna. Or we could both adopt Jeremy!

Favourite character: Damon Salvatore. Do I need to explain?

Why yes, you do :D

5 Favourite ships (canon or non-canon): Damon/Elena, Damon/Elena/Stefan, Damon/Alaric, Caroline/Tyler, Damon/Katherine (do I just ship Damon with everybodyM

Same here but add Stefan/Katherine, Rebekah/Klaus and Klaus/Stefan to the mix ;)

Character I would be best friends with: Damon

Oh...I'm not sure that I can be only friends with him lol

Canon OTP: Damon/Elena counts as canon, right?

OUR OTP FTW!

Favourite friendship: the Salvatores

SALVATORES ABOVE ALL THE SHIPS IN THIS SHOW YO!

Oh, come on, half of this journal is about how Damon is my favorite character XD. I love him, because he is so complicated I've been writing fanfiction about him for over a year now, and it didn't even start getting boring!

Oh...I'm not sure that I can be only friends with him lol

I could. I'm twisted like that :P.

Favourite character: Spike. I'm predictable like that.
Least Favourite character: Riley, if I am to keep to the main cast. Now I'd probably like him a little better, but now I can't help it. He was just boring.
5 Favourite ships (canon or non-canon): Spike/Buffy, Willow/Tara, Spike/Drusilla, Angelus/Darla, Xander/Anya
Character I find most attractive: huh, none of them really got a "OMG SO PRETTY" reaction from me XD. Let's say Spike, because I really loved his body language - I could watch him for walk for hours, seriously. All the fights looked a bit like dancing, and that flashback scene in China when the entire Fanged Four march truimphantly, and Spike jumps over a barrel - GIVES ME CHILLS.
Character I would marry: STAY AWAY FROM ME, YOU DYSFUNCIONAL PEOPLE! If I were a vampire, I could have this 100-years-long, marriage-like relationship with evil Spike, the way Drusilla did. That's all.
Character I would be best friends with: Willow, probably. Nerd solidarity and so on.
A random thought: My favorite thing in this show is how after all the heroism in s5 we get everything but heroism in s6. This clash that reflects Buffy's state of mind so perfectly - WOW.
An unpopular opinion: I LIKE XANDER! I know he is judgy, mysoginic and obnoxious, I really do. It's just... That's how teenage boys often are, you know? Xander is terribly flawed, and I can't help it, I like ho realistic his flaws are.
Canon OTP: Buffy/Spike. I'm predictable like that.
Non-canon OTP: I seriosly can't think of any... I'd say Wesley/Faith, but it's an AtS ship in my mind.
Most badass character: Buffy. She saved the world a lot!
Pairing I am not a fan of: Spike/Angel. When they both have no souls - no problem. But I can't imagine ensouled Angel wishing to have anything like that to do with Spike.
Character I feel the writers screwed up (in one way or another): Tara had a terrible beginning. She barely spoke two words together, they just made her so shy she was a caricature.
Favourite friendship: Buffy and Faith. The understanding they have in s7 is amazing :D.
Character I want to adopt or be adopted by: I could totally adopt Willow :).

I LIKE XANDER TOO. Exactly for the reasons you sate. (Also, I'd feel kinda weird about judging Xander harshly for treating women poorly... considering some of the other people I stan for like a motherfucker. Um.)

Downton Abbey YAY! :)

Date: 2011-12-18 08:59 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] upupa-epops.livejournal.com
Favourite character: Cousin Violet wins all the awards! What is a week-end?
Least Favourite character: Lavinia. It's not about the girl herself, I just hate how they put her there just to kill her :(.
5 Favourite ships (canon or non-canon): huh, I don't really ship things in Downton Abbey?
Character I find most attractive: Lady Mary. She is style and class incarnated.
Character I would marry: No idea... Matthew, I suppose?
Character I would be best friends with: Sybil :)
A random thought: How did s2 manage to have such a wonderful opening and such a terrible finale? :((((((((
An unpopular opinion: I have NO IDEA which opinions are unpopular right now XD. To be honest, s2 finale just made me dislike the whole thing.
Canon OTP: sorry, definitely no ships :(
Non-canon OTP: what I just said
Most badass character: Cousin Violet. She can do whatever she wants \o/
Pairing I am not a fan of: Mary/Matthew. I mean, I like them in s1, but now the whole "intrigue" with Lavinia got me all "meh".
Character I feel the writers screwed up (in one way or another): are you kidding? He screwed up the entire ending!
Favourite friendship: Mr Carson and Mrs Hughes. They run this house, they know everything, they're awesome :D
Character I want to adopt or be adopted by: I could adopt Thomas. It would do him good.

From: [identity profile] upupa-epops.livejournal.com
I was hoping you'd say that :D.

Favourite character: in the books: Sansa. In the show as it is right now: Tyrion.
Least Favourite character: Cersei. Thank you, George Martin, for taking a character with such great potential and turning her into The Most Inconsistant Character Ever Written :(.
5 Favourite ships (canon or non-canon): I'm too fond of GoT gen to ship things :)
Character I find most attractive: Robb. I blame [livejournal.com profile] mlekopijca.
Character I would marry: I guess I could marry Ned. He puts much effort into being a good husband.
Character I would be best friends with: I'd love to be friends with Dany.
A random thought: I LOVE pre-series of all kinds! Lyanna, all the stories about the war with the Mad Kings, all the legends about old Targaryens... I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED BEFORE, OK?
An unpopular opinion: I don't ship Sansa with anyone. I mean, I get why people write stories about Sansa when she is older and has romantic relationships, but I really enjoy having a character who is just a child, and I don't want to speed things up. I'll probably find myself a Sansa ship when she grows up in the books, but right now I just love her character development too much to jump ahead.
Canon OTP: Dany/Drogo, if I have to choose.
Non-canon OTP: [livejournal.com profile] mlekopijca kind of made me ship Jon/Robb a bit.
Most badass character: Dany! This girl can do whatever she wants, and she achieved it because she is so strong. Dany wins all the awards.
Pairing I am not a fan of: huh, Sansa/anybody?
Character I feel the writers screwed up (in one way or another): book!Cersei! Why, George Martin, why?
Favourite friendship: Jon and Sam :). Jon Snow doesn't know where to put it!
Character I want to adopt or be adopted by: I would totally adopt Arya!

Meme: Angel?

From: [identity profile] upupa-epops.livejournal.com
THEY ARE COMING!

Favourite character: Wesley. Do I have to explain?
Least Favourite character: From the main cast? Paradoxically, Angel himself XD.
5 Favourite ships (canon or non-canon): Wesley/Lilah, Wesley/Fred, Wesley/Illyria, Wesley/Faith... oh, wait, I can ship other characters than Wesley? Angelus/ Darla.
Character I find most attractive: Wesley. SMART IS SEXY, ok?
Character I would marry: OMG, Alex, do you want me to live in an unhappy marriage?
Character I would be best friends with: Wesley, again. I could listen to him being all geeky! And we could get drunk together!
A random thought: Wasn't the puppet episode just glorious?
An unpopular opinion: I don't mind Connor. In no universe is he my favorite character, but I don't hate him the way most people seem to hate him.
Canon OTP: Wesley/Fred. It's so openly based on romantic delusions I could analyse the hell out of it!
Non-canon OTP: does Wesley/Illyria count as non-canon?
Most badass character: can we please just name this show "Wesley the Series" and be done with it?
Pairing I am not a fan of: Angel/Cordelia. I don't really dislike it, it just didn't manage to catch my attention at all.
Character I feel the writers screwed up (in one way or another): CORDELIA. What was this crazyass thing in s4, HUH?
Favourite friendship: I know it's barely there in canon, but my head!canon is full of amazing Wesley&Spike moments with a lot of whisky and Shakespeare quotes.
Character I want to adopt or be adopted by: THEY WOULD ALL BE HORRIBLE PARENTS! But I always wanted to be Spike's big sister ;).

+ WESLEY LOVE NEEDS NO EXPLANATION.
+ Haha, I am the only person in this bar who actually loves Angel. I don't actually talk about it much, but he is a fascinating character to me. NOT as a ~hero, but as a poorly-disguised-villain-as-hero, if you get me.
+ ANGEL/DARLA 4EVA.
+ I LOVE CONNOR. Will defend him to the death.
+ Oooh, I love your description of Wesley/Fred. That's what I like about it too, though I know that bugs the hell out of some people. As a straight romance, I don't care for them much.
+ Heh, yes, I think Wes/Illyria counts as non-canon.
+ can we please just name this show "Wesley the Series" and be done with it? -- MOTION PASSED.
+ Word on Cordy.
+ omg, how much do Wesley and Spike have in common. SERIOUSLY.
+ Hee, I already feel like Spike's big sister most of the time. Yes...

Lol, I don't dislike Angel, I just... Ok, I do dislike Angel as a person, because there is some level of him that just annoys me deeply, and I can't explain it. But the poorly-disguised-villain-as-hero is FASCINATING, and I' m a great fun of how Spike calls him out on it constantly in s5. Actually s5 brings out all the things that are best in Angel, because clashing him with Spike takes away a part of the disguise; suddenly everything becomes more honest, and I get all: "OMG LET'S DISSECT ALL THOSE CHARACTERS AND SEE HOW THEY WORK!".

That's what I like about it too, though I know that bugs the hell out of some people.

Once I wanted to write myself a nice, fluffy, fix-it comfort fic in which Fred doesn't get killed by Illyria. I started figuring it out. Then I tried to imagine what would happen if Wesley and Fred could actualy carry on the way they were going, get a couple of days of this fairy tale love that was supposed to save them, and then break Vail's spell the way it was broken and suddenly remember all the dark things that happened between them. I concluded that killing Fred actually was a more merciful solution. THAT'S WHEN THIS SHIP GOT REALLY INTERESTING!

omg, how much do Wesley and Spike have in common

I'm obsessed by how similar their starting points are! Human William and young Wesley have SO MUCH IN COMMON! Of course their lives were different, and they aren't so similar any more, but there is some sort of foundation they share, and you can see that! The fact that they didn't get at least one epic scene in which they get drunk and talk about life is, like, THE WORST THING EVER.

(OMG, did I just answer all the comments?)

HAHAHA GREAT STORY. Yeah, the fairytale love they had going on in S5 didn't do much for me, but something like "Billy"? Oh yeah. (No amount of therapy will fix me, etc. etc.)

WORD on Wes and Spike. They're both nerds who failed to live up to their society's idea of masculinity. *nod*
