02. Make an entry in your own journal and talk about the icons I picked!
I don't really have time to participate in the first half of this meme cos OMG! I LEAVE IN FOUR DAYS!! I should be stressing yet I'm not... aaaanyway, remainvanishing picked these:
PAM! Pam is the most badass that ever badassed in the True Blood 'verse. Her exasperation is great. Her oneliners are great. Her wardrobe is great. She doesn't have patience for human bullshit. I love it. She don't like you, you know it. She likes you, you know it. Also, Eric's line: 'Do I have blood in my hair? Pam's gonna kill me...' had me laughing for days.
TREK!! The fandom I cut my sci-fi teeth upon. I'd beg my parents to buy books. I'd borrow them from the library. I'd curse the fact that I was only 5 and had NO CONTROL over watching it every Tuesday at 8pm!!! I'd rap about the moral implications and honourableness of it with people twice, often three times my age and they'd look at me like, WHAAAA? How do you know these things??? You are A CHILD! This is probably where the root of my sarcasm lies.
Cos Parker and Hardison ARE Team Awesome. My very first ep of Leverage was The Stork Job. WHAAAA? Yeah, I was working when it first came out and then got laid off three weeks later so I was able to watch it live. Woot! They're awesome... and awe-whole lotta things. They're funny. They're cute. They flirt... whether they know about it or not. They bicker. They make each other laugh. They back each other up. They learn how to work together. They're on their way to being friends and as we've all learned, friendship always leads me to ship-ship. WOOT!SAUCE!
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! That's pretty much all I think about. From one of my fave Buffy eps Tabula Rasa. So. Funny. The wit. The sarcasm. My supah-sekrit Giles/Anya ship. The quotes: "I think I know why Joan's the boss." "I'm like a superhero or something." "I kill your kind." "And I bite yours. So how come I don't wanna bite you. And why am I fightin' other vampires?" "Randy Giles?! Why not just call me 'Horny' Giles or 'Desperate for a shag' Giles." "Oh, listen to Mary Poppins. He's got his crust all stiffen up with that Nancy-Boy accent. You English men are always so... bloddy hell. Sodding. Blimey. Shagging. Knickers. Bollocks. Oh, God. I'm English." "Welcome to the Nancy tribe." "How can you say... I? Me? A vampire? No." Also, trying my hand at icon making for a spell, I've come to realise it is HARD to try and fit more than two people in a teeny tiny space of 100x100 pixels. I applaud this feat. *standing ovation*
Claudia Jean. The Jackal. "HOLY INTERRUPTUS, BATMAN!" "A flamingo is a ridiculous looking bird!" "I had a woot canaw!" "First of all, You're wrong. Second of all, Shut up. Third, I went to Hoynes with your thing and he said he wasn't the one you talked to and I believe him and he's really pissed at me and he's right and fourth, shut up again." "You elitist, Harvard fascist, missed the Dean's List two semesters in a row Yankee jackass!" - "Feel better gettin' that off your chest there C.J?" - "I'm a whole new woman." "I'm too sexy for my shirt, too sexy for my skirt, too sexy for other things... I'm too sexy for my shoes, too sexy for the blues..." My hero. Therefore, don't mess. Seriously. Don't. Sarcasm? Check. Brains? Check. Sexy? Check. Mouths off? Check. Holds her liquor... we'll get back to you on that. She can roll with the boys yet stand apart. She commands respect without being a bitch. She works hard. She gets 'er done. She's fanfrickentastic and if you cross her or anyone she cares about, she will fuck you up.
Okay so, I LOVE Sam/Donna likeyoudontevenknow!!! There's not a lot out there fandom wise but dude, how they live in my brain. HOW. It's like with any other ship I sail. Friendship. Partnership. Then sooner or later, BAM!, it hits me, I SHIP.
