1) What is your opinion of this character? If you like, explain why you like him/her.
I like Kate as a character. I find her interesting with believable flaws, and occasionally both utterly adorable and frustrating.

2) Is he/she important to the general plot?
er, show's about her, so yes.

3) Can you relate to this character at all? Does he/she grip you emotionally?
I relate to how she finds Justin hot. *G* and I admire how forthright and fearless she can be.

4) How much do you like the fandom that this character comes from?
THEY ARE ALL MY PEOPLE. :DD

5) Do you ship this character with any other character? Or, are you particularly intrigued by his/her relationship with any other character(s)? (romance-wise or platonic)
Kate/Justin of course. Though I'm also interested in Kate's relationships with Lauren and Spencer, who kind of disappeared from her life. And I'd like to know more about Kate and Julie's BFFery

6) Is there anything about the character you would change?
i think they need to pull back on her ... childishness. It's hard to believe that she was such a fabulous attorney when she can't get anywhere on time and is so helpless about details. (I would've believed she'd quit law because she was actually rather terrible at it besides her philosophical problems with it -- seems like the show is kind of trying to have it both ways).

7) If you were in the fandom with this character or knew this character in real life, how would you see yourself interacting with him/her?
I would likely find her unprofessional and annoying in real life, tbh.

8) Does this character make the cut as one of your all time favorites (if you like) or least favorites?
so far, not either.

9) Would you hype up this character (if you like) or warn about this character (if you dislike) to someone new to fandom?
Sure :

10) Is this character popular with the fanbase?
all twelve of us like her, I think, or we wouldn't be fans :)

I'm gonna pick the obvious one: Sam Anders :-)

Oh, and I'm stealing the meme!

lizardbeth: Anders - bluelizardbeth_j on March 30th, 2011 04:20 am (UTC)
SAM ANDERS IS THE BEST THING EVER
OH SURE GO FOR THE OBVIOUS.;P

1) What is your opinion of this character? If you like, explain why you like him/her.
LOVE WITH SPARKLY HEARTS

2) Is he/she important to the general plot?
important, though obviously more so as series goes on than at the start.

3) Can you relate to this character at all? Does he/she grip you emotionally?
I think I would react very similarly - both as a resistance fighter and as being rather stunned and horrified at the revelation of being a FFer. I am not an athlete though, so that part, no. Yes, his journey is one of the ones I find very gripping.

4) How much do you like the fandom that this character comes from?
IT IS MY HOME STILL

5) Do you ship this character with any other character? Or, are you particularly intrigued by his/her relationship with any other character(s)? (romance-wise or platonic)
Kara of course. the other Four. The Cylons in general. I tend to write about all those things a lot and in different combos.

I will always mourn my S.3 fanon that he didn't become Laura's protege and move into politics (really, Laura missed her opportunity there -- he had a built in notoriety as a C-Buc and a two-time resistance hero. She should've been all over his political capital, but *sigh*)

6) Is there anything about the character you would change?
Let's just say there are many other ways 4.5 could've gone which I would've liked much better for him. But the Hybrid thing is number one on my OMGHATE list.

7) If you were in the fandom with this character or knew this character in real life, how would you see yourself interacting with him/her?
I think I'd like him. He seems to get along with everybody. I'd probably have a crush. *g*

8) Does this character make the cut as one of your all time favorites (if you like) or least favorites?
HELL TO THE YES. a zillion words of fic must mean something right?

9) Would you hype up this character (if you like) or warn about this character (if you dislike) to someone new to fandom?
I do and have.

10) Is this character popular with the fanbase?
More so now than early on, which pleases me greatly.

Dee
lizardbeth: Hera and Deelizardbeth_j on March 30th, 2011 04:32 am (UTC)
DUALLA
1) What is your opinion of this character? If you like, explain why you like him/her.
I like Dee. I love especially her quiet strength, that she knows what she wants and she's willing to risk to get it. Even though sometimes that breaks her heart.

2) Is he/she important to the general plot?
Important in a secondary character sense - she impacts the other characters who are more direct movers (advising, helping,).

3) Can you relate to this character at all? Does he/she grip you emotionally?
I think so - she's one of the more normal ones, in a sense. She does her job, she does what she believes is right, she falls in love... she feels the most real in some ways.

4) How much do you like the fandom that this character comes from?
STILL HOME.

5) Do you ship this character with any other character? Or, are you particularly intrigued by his/her relationship with any other character(s)? (romance-wise or platonic)
Still a Lee/Dee shipper and wished Apollo'd gotten his act together better/earlier. I would've liked to see her with Laura more, esp when they were both dealing with emo Adama men.

6) Is there anything about the character you would change?
that she not die. :( ( :(

7) If you were in the fandom with this character or knew this character in real life, how would you see yourself interacting with him/her?
I like to think we'd be friends.

8) Does this character make the cut as one of your all time favorites (if you like) or least favorites?
mm, all time, probably not, but certainly a favorite.

9) Would you hype up this character (if you like) or warn about this character (if you dislike) to someone new to fandom?
I would, though not too much since she's a bit too minor to hype up too much. People would likely be disappointed

10) Is this character popular with the fanbase?
depends on the corner. some people have been unfairly critical and/or hateful toward her over Billy and Lee, but she does seem more popular now that the canon's closed.

SAM SAM SAM!!!!! I need to know about SAM! :>D

You are awesome, BTW. Have I told you this? 'Cause you are. And you should just be aware of this!
lizardbethlizardbeth_j on March 30th, 2011 01:37 am (UTC)
Naz already picked Sam. You wanna pick another one? :)
kag523 on March 30th, 2011 02:21 am (UTC)
Aw... do I HAVE TO? (Kidding. Kidding of course.)

Alright. Kara Thrace. :>)
lizardbeth: Kara - whateverlizardbeth_j on March 30th, 2011 04:51 am (UTC)
KARA STARBUCK THRACE
(I wrote out Sam above btw)

1) What is your opinion of this character? If you like, explain why you like him/her.
What can I say about Kara Thrac? I hear her hair is insured for 1000 dollars... :) (sorry, can't help it. hee)

2) Is he/she important to the general plot?
OH YES

3) Can you relate to this character at all? Does he/she grip you emotionally?
She's gripping emotionally, but hm, not really a character I relate to personally, in the sense of being like her. She's more bold, more crazy, more selfish, more damaged, more... everything :)

4) How much do you like the fandom that this character comes from?
STILL HOME

5) Do you ship this character with any other character? Or, are you particularly intrigued by his/her relationship with any other character(s)? (romance-wise or platonic)
Kara/Sam ALWAYS. I'm not a K/L shipper at all (and that was before Sam even came on the scene). Though I can certainly see Kara frakking anybody pretty much, if she wanted. I loved the casual BFFness of Kara Helo. and how Kara's relationship with the Tighs evolved from mutual disdain to friendly.

6) Is there anything about the character you would change?
I would've liked her to have her understand her need for Sam before he was bleeding out in her arms. :(

7) If you were in the fandom with this character or knew this character in real life, how would you see yourself interacting with him/her?
Depends on if I was set in authority over her, in which case I would probably want to put her in hack all the time, or if I could drink with her.

8) Does this character make the cut as one of your all time favorites (if you like) or least favorites?
Definitely more on the favorite side...

9) Would you hype up this character (if you like) or warn about this character (if you dislike) to someone new to fandom?
have and do. Though less so now, since she's so famous and all.

10) Is this character popular with the fanbase?
BSG March MAdness winner TWO YEARS IN A ROW. 'nuff said.

Re: KARA STARBUCK THRACE
Thank you so much for these awesome thoughts! One day I will sit down and explain my thoughts on Kara / Sam / Lee... but it would take more than a comment box to do. In any case I will say I agree with SO MUCH of this! (And it is part of the reason I had to write fic to "fix" things.)

Thank you!!! K :>D
bluediamond421bluediamond421 on March 30th, 2011 01:23 am (UTC)
Hmm....Vala. (I know, you probably weren't expecting that one, lol, but I am curious)

Edited at 2011-03-30 01:24 am (UTC)
lizardbeth: Vala - oopslizardbeth_j on March 30th, 2011 05:10 am (UTC)
VALA MALDORAN
Appropriately I had to change it to my oops icon, because OOPS, I FORGOT I have a Vala icon!

1) What is your opinion of this character? If you like, explain why you like him/her.
I like Vala. I love how she shook up the dynamics of the team and the SGC, how she was outrageous and bold, and thought Earthers were stupid a lot of the time. A little less enamored with her forays into stupidity,

2) Is he/she important to the general plot?
Later on, with the Orisi, definitely.

3) Can you relate to this character at all? Does he/she grip you emotionally?
I have often thought Earthers are dumb, so that part, totally I relate. Loyalty to her friends. Insecurity. People you can't help loving even when they're trying to conquer your galaxy. okay, not SO much that last part.

4) How much do you like the fandom that this character comes from?
The fandom's gotten better I think, but it used to be a little too big and divided into different camps.

5) Do you ship this character with any other character? Or, are you particularly intrigued by his/her relationship with any other character(s)? (romance-wise or platonic)
With Daniel. Tomin was kind of sweet. Vala and Cam were interesting as a Farscaper. Vala - Teal'c was fun for alien bonding. Vala and Sam as eventual friends.

6) Is there anything about the character you would change?
Early S9 Vala was a bit over the top, but aside from that, not really. I like her journey

7) If you were in the fandom with this character or knew this character in real life, how would you see yourself interacting with him/her?
Depends on whether she stole from me or not. :)

8) Does this character make the cut as one of your all time favorites (if you like) or least favorites?
Probably not all time favoritee, no.

9) Would you hype up this character (if you like) or warn about this character (if you dislike) to someone new to fandom?
hm, hype her up? When she doesn't even show up for eight seasons? No, probably I'm not going to pick Vala as my first selling point.

10) Is this character popular with the fanbase?
Mostly, I think so. I know some people who really don't like her at all though.

Jo Harvell? ^_^
lizardbeth: Dean approveslizardbeth_j on March 30th, 2011 05:26 am (UTC)
JO
1) What is your opinion of this character? If you like, explain why you like him/her.
I liked Jo, though I wish we'd seen her more to get to know her better..

2) Is he/she important to the general plot?
No, not much..

3) Can you relate to this character at all? Does he/she grip you emotionally?
She was brave and she tried hard, and she wanted to be her own woman with her own adventures, and I liked that.

4) How much do you like the fandom that this character comes from?
have you seen Supernatural fandom??? :)

5) Do you ship this character with any other character? Or, are you particularly intrigued by his/her relationship with any other character(s)? (romance-wise or platonic)
nope, I liked her better on her own than with Dean or Sam, at least romantically. but I liked her relationship with her mother a lot

6) Is there anything about the character you would change?
her death. or really, her lack of return (since death is no big thing in SPN-verse)

7) If you were in the fandom with this character or knew this character in real life, how would you see yourself interacting with him/her?
Heh, I can see myself trying to mother her actually (I relate to Ellen a lot more as another parent), so she'd probably hate me.

8) Does this character make the cut as one of your all time favorites (if you like) or least favorites?
no. I don't feel strongly enough about her to consider her a favorite, though I certainly don't dislike her.

9) Would you hype up this character (if you like) or warn about this character (if you dislike) to someone new to fandom?
Neither. Except as an example of a female hunter that they do exist.

10) Is this character popular with the fanbase?
at first, no, not at all. a bit more so now, I think, but it's still a drop in the bucket.
Nicole Anell: tsccnicole_anell on March 30th, 2011 03:36 am (UTC)
I give you Derek Reese. Or Helo. :D
lizardbeth: Derek and babylizardbeth_j on March 30th, 2011 05:45 am (UTC)
Since I've already done two BSG peeps, I pick Derek. not that I'm still bitter about Helo going forward in BSGMM or anything like that, noooo

1) What is your opinion of this character? If you like, explain why you like him/her.
I like Derek, I like he shook up the timeline and provided a real human connection to the post JD world, and the complexities of his relationship through Kyle to both Sarah and John.

2) Is he/she important to the general plot?
Through his connection to Sarah and John, and the future. Though ultimately he was another soldier to fall in the war.

3) Can you relate to this character at all? Does he/she grip you emotionally?
Hm, I think I can relate in the sense that I think I could become like him in the same circumstance. But it's more that I find his damage interesting, than relatable.

4) How much do you like the fandom that this character comes from?
it used to be a pretty good, small fandom. but it's pretty quiet.

5) Do you ship this character with any other character? Or, are you particularly intrigued by his/her relationship with any other character(s)? (romance-wise or platonic)
Derek/Jesse seemed pretty doomed, though in the future they seemed to work. The complexities of Sarah/Derek were pretty interesting. And I loved the Derek - John relationship.

6) Is there anything about the character you would change?
I'm... still not over how he died. (though I do like the idea of a Derek v. 2.0 coming back with John from the future)

7) If you were in the fandom with this character or knew this character in real life, how would you see yourself interacting with him/her?
unless i was also a resistance fighter, I would try to stay Far, far away.

8) Does this character make the cut as one of your all time favorites (if you like) or least favorites?
all time favorite? no.

9) Would you hype up this character (if you like) or warn about this character (if you dislike) to someone new to fandom?
I have in the past, esp with people who are impatient with the pilot, since his arrival shifted the original dynamics and kicked the main arc into gear

10) Is this character popular with the fanbase?
generally, yes, AFAIK
Nicole Anell: tscc - jessenicole_anell on March 30th, 2011 07:15 pm (UTC)
unless i was also a resistance fighter, I would try to stay Far, far away
Ha, true.

It's weird to think about what would've happened if the show had come back for season three. The alternate future gave them a way to keep Derek around/bring him back, but he'd be a Derek who never knew John.
roeskva: Lantash smilingroeskva on March 30th, 2011 07:35 pm (UTC)
Actually haven't seen this meme before (and stealing it!)

Oh, and I pick Lantash/Martouf!
