Snatched from goldy_dollar cuz I have nothing at all better to do with my time.

Choose five fandoms without looking under the cut.

My Five fandoms:

1. Battlestar Galactica
2. The Vampire Diaries
3. Doctor Who
4. Stargate SG-1
5. Babylon 5


1. Who is your favourite character in #2?

Stefan. I am sorry, I like the broody vampire type, okay? Caroline and Elena and Jeremy and Bonnie and Elijah and Katherine are all up there, too, it's just that all the rest of them have spent at least a little time annoying me. And Stefan doesn't annoy me. And if he did annoy me I watch gifs of him doing pull-ups and LIKE MAGIC, I'm not annoyed anymore.

2. Who is your least favourite character in #1?

hm. This is hard, since my list of characters I don't much like changes depending on my mood and what I'm writing at the moment -- but of all the characters I have to say that Bill took the biggest hit in my estimation because of season 4. Though I have to admit it may be somewhat unfair - I mean, is it really worse to be disappointed that he tried and failed, or Cain who decided not to try at all? I don't know - I don't usually dislike characters, since I'm queen of fanwank and usually can understand why they do what they do, and at that point I don't dislike them anymore. (I obviously don't always *approve*, but I understand it.)

And if we're actually talking about characters on a personal level, well, truth be told, I'd probably dislike both Laura and Kara if I knew them in person.

3. What’s your favourite episode of #4?

Easy choice is "Window of Opportunity" STILL makes me laugh, to this day. though "Abyss" is still my favorite serious episode.

4. What is your favourite season of #5?


5. What’s your favourite ship in #3?

Amy and Rory. Though I love River/Eleven too. (keep in mind I haven't seen much of Ten, so I'm not saying anything about those possibilities).

6. Who is your anti-ship in #2?
Elena/Damon, since I simply don't see what the hell Damon can offer Elena or why she would want him. Cute just isn't enough. Matt's cute, too, and he's not an unrepentant psycho.

7. How long have you watched #1?
Since the miniseries aired (OMG, People, there were BILLBOARDS. I was so excited). I remember watching with some trepidation, being a nostalgic fan of Old Skool BSG, but I took EJO's warning to heart and watched it as something new, and never really looked back. (okay, except for Apollo. Old School did taint things for me, regarding Lee, for a really long time but that is a whole separate essay)

8. How did you become interested in #3?
HUGE AMOUNTS OF FANNISH OSMOSIS, and I finally had to give in. Y'all were right.

9. Who is your favorite character in #4?
Sam Carter.

10. Which show do you prefer out of #1, #2, or #5?
TVD has a long way to go before they achieve what either BSG or B5 did in story or character. And BSG kind of rests on what JMS did in B5. I think B5 had the advantage of planning more thoroughly, and it'll always be my First Fandom, but otoh, it's hard to say I prefer it when BSG has inspired me so much more at least in the last many years.

11. Which show have you seen more episodes of, #1 or #3?
BSG. There are certainly lots more of DW I could see, but I'm still a noob. :)

12. If you could be anyone from #4, who would you be?

If I could BE anyone? I would like to be as brilliant and pretty as Sam, though I don't have any interest in physics. though I think for sheer kickass fun I'd like to be Ishta. Maybe girl!mitchell.

13. How would you kill off your favourite character in #2?
I ALREADY DID THIS, MEME. Stefan dies, sacrificing himself to take out Klaus.

14. Give a random quote from #1.

Saul MF tigh: So, take your piety, and your moralizing, and your high-minded principles, and stick 'em some place safe until you're off this rock and you're sitting in your nice, cushy chair on Colonial One again. I've got a war to fight

15. Would a #3/#4 crossover work?

SG-1 and DW? LIKE FALLING OFF A LOG. A magic ring that can travel anywhere in the galaxy and time travel and a magic box that can travel anywhere in time and space? LET ME SEE... IS THAT A POSSIBLE CROSSOVER?

But I'd like an accidental crossover - where the two parties meet on another planet maybe at the point the Ori are ascendant, and they could have wacky hijinx together. Mostly because Sam's face in the Tardis would be precious.

16. Pair two characters in #1 that would make an unlikely, but strangely okay couple.

Okay, taking the "unlikely" thing to heart because I personally don't find Sam/Caprica that unlikely, which was my first thought, I would say... I think it's weird and strange that RDM paired them up in any way whatsoever, BUT Cally and Costanza kinda work in hindsight? I mean, let's say Galen and cally never got together after the Incident, and Brendan and Cally slept together... I think they might have made it work. Cally would probably have been happier, poor thing, and Brendan always seemed kind of dorky, but also caring.

17. Overall, which show has a better cast, #3 or #5?
As much I do love the main cast for Doctor Who, the thing that impresses me the most about B5 is how *deeply* that cast became their characters. Especially the aliens really came to life in a way that DW doesn't, at least not for me.

18. Which has better theme music, #2 or #4?
TVD's music mostly consists of song placement (which is occasionally great, but also occasionally really terrible and jarring), so I'll have to give it to SG-1 who actually HAS a theme.

Stargate, it's a great big swirl...

(if I was home I could put in some pics, but sorry, it's not very visual at all)
