Character meme  
In lieu of anything else more useful, I decided to snurch this from lyssie:

Step One: Pick ten characters.

1. Kara Thrace, BSG
2. Caprica Six, BSG
3. Sam Carter, SG-1
4. Ellen Harvelle, SPN
5. Qetesh, SG-1
6. Theo, Jeremiah
7. Aeryn Sun, Farscape
8. Delenn, B5
9. Shane Vansen, Space:AAB
10. Leia Organa

Step Two: Write a fic of fifteen words or less for every prompt, using the characters determined by the numbers. Do NOT read the prompts before you do step 1!

(I managed to keep them short for once, go me!)

FIRST TIME: #4 & #6 (Ellen and Theo)
It wasn't the Apocalypse Ellen had expected, nor had she expected to survive the one she got instead, but when the two women -- one older, one young -- size each other up in Theo's bar, Ellen recognizes a kindred spirit: they're both survivors.

ANGST: #7 (Aeryn)
All she wants is for him to grow up safe and free, and she fears he won't even make it to growing up.

AU: #1 & #8 (Kara and Delenn)
She used to be a Starfury pilot, until getting kicked out of EarthForce for insubordination. Then she wandered and somehow, she still doesn't quite know how, she ended up on Minbar and trained to be a Ranger. She's deadly with a fighting pike and more deadly in space, and the Minbari whisper that she has a destiny.

Delenn just smiles and lights a candle to guide Kara home to her.

THREESOME: #3, #6 & #9 (Sam, Theo, Shane)
Theo wonders sometimes what it would be like if Sam or Shane knew about the other, but they're both too uptight to play as loose as Theo wants, so she doesn't say anything.

HURT/COMFORT: #5 & #10 (Qetesh and Leia)
"It'll be all right, my sweet princess -- I always put my toys back together again."

CRACK: #1 (Kara)

"What the frak is that, Sam?" Kara demands, looking at the creature that's sitting on Sam's chest and maybe planning to eat his face off.

Sam looks up and the fluffy thing looks at her, too - and they have identical, faintly hurt and puzzled expressions. "It's a dog. His name's Jake."

"Where the hell did you find him?"

"He followed me. I tried to make him go home, but he won't go. He keeps slobbering on me." Sam's voice is disgusted, but his face is all aglow with a happy grin, and he's still scratching the damn dog on the chest.

"Jake belongs to someone; you can't keep him."

But Sam's already shaking his head. "He doesn't really. He hangs out in camp and Galen says people make sure he's fed, but nobody seems to want to take care of him and love him, and that's just not right. Not for such a handsome little devil," the last is said to the dog, and Kara rolls her eyes.

"He can't stay in here," she tries to be stern and put her foot down before these two join forces. "He stays outside."

And yet, somehow, the dog ends up sleeping in a nest of blankets on the floor of the tent. Kara decides to count it a victory when she keeps the dog out of their bed.

HORROR: #10 (Leia)
Nothing will ever match the grief and fury she felt watching Alderaan explode, knowing her parents and family and friends were all dead. But learning Darth Vader fathered her comes close.

BABY FIC: #5 & #9 (Aeryn and Shane)
Aeryn comes to Vansen for advice about the baby, since she knows Shane raised her sisters and therefore must know something about infants, which a Peacekeeper does not. Shane is always irritated by the questions, but she helps anyway. Shane wonders aloud why she can't get away from her sisters, even in the Uncharted Territories.

DARK FIC: #2 & #8 (Caprica and Delenn)
Caprica looks at the Minbari captive on the floor and smiles. She brushes Delenn's cheek with her fingers. "Did you think we would forget? Ten years ago, you came with death and terror to all the human worlds, even our colony where my people lived in peace. But we're stronger now, and we intend to teach you your error."

Delenn sees the spider-like creature at the blonde woman's side and closes her eyes with a silent prayer.

ROMANCE: #4 & #7 (Ellen and Vala)
Ellen's seen a lot in her life -- ghosts, demons, magic guns -- but even she has to admit that it's not every woman who gets a metal bracelet from outer space that can let her walk through walls for a present.

DEATH FIC: #2 & #3 (Caprica and Sam)
Caprica never expected to resurrect at all - and never thousands of years later. But she knows why, when she sees the technology is increasing exponentially at the same time as the value of human life, leading inevitably to the rise of machine intelligence. But as she lines up her gun sights on the robotics genius named Doctor Carter, Caprica knows she'll do anything to save this world from the fate she gave the Colonies.

(I did two lists: once with Vala and Aeryn, and once with Qetesh and Aeryn. I used the Claudia Black character for each answer I thought would work best. *g* I know, I'm such a cheater.)

Great work!

Y'know, I've often thought Caprica Six and Delenn (the canon versions) would be able to empathize on the "guilt over many deaths" count, though with different circumstances.
lizardbeth: Delennlizardbeth_j on February 2nd, 2010 10:13 pm (UTC)

that's very true that they'd certainly both understand each other's guilt, even though, yeah, the circumstances were somewhat different.

And now I'm imagining Delenn saying "Let's get this genocide started!" *snicker*

Maybe Bester.
Merry F: kara sam barivanolix on February 3rd, 2010 12:52 am (UTC)
Bwa on the crackfic! That's such a Trucco thing to do...

And Ellen/Vala...whoa. *brain hurts*
lizardbeth: BSG- Templelizardbeth_j on February 3rd, 2010 01:59 am (UTC)
It totally is! And SO CUTE to imagine.. Heh, now I keep thinking of how Sam having Jake when Kara was gone and then later might've changed things... *head desk*

er, yeah, Ellen/Vala is very brian-breaky. maybe Vala gets to Harvelle's in Memento Mori instead, IDK...
