Dude wtf, this is what I get for no longer keeping up with anime news... evidently there's a new version of Full Metal Alchemist that's just started and which will, I think, follow the original manga. The first ep's online, and I'm waiting for it to stream a bit more before I watch... I'm getting all nostalgic, dammit I used to LOVE this show so much. Good times. :) Haven't read the manga in years, and keep telling myself I'll reread it and get caught up... ehehe. I miss anime/manga sometimes. *sigh* *goes to watch*

(haven't gotten to use this tag in ages! wee)

I should really be studying right now... *cough*

I've see this meme floating around for awhile, and have been meaning to do it...

I) I'll post ten things I'm a fan of.

II) You will attempt to guess my favourite character from each.

III)
Upon your success, I'll put that line in bold, append the correct
answer, and write a sentence or so about my affection for that
character. (well, may or may not do the sentence...)

1. Angel Wesley, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] garran. And this comes as a surprise to who? XD I don't even know where to start in explaining why I love him so much; I suppose it comes down in part to my fascination with seeing how he changed and developed over the years, compounded by Alexis's brilliant acting. I loved him when he was bumbling around and falling over things in season 1, and when he was dark and broody and scruffy in season 4, and I love that his character development between those 2 points (and beyond) was completely organic.

2. Lost Sawyer, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] garran. Sex appeal aside (*ahem*), I find him a fascinating and multi-faceted character, and I'm looking forward to see where they go with his character development, especially in terms of his relationship with Jack (and Kate, I suppose). And he's one of those characters who can make you go from laughing to angsting in a moment...

3. Harry Potter Severus Snape, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] bk635. I find him one of the most intriquing, 3-dimensional characters in the books, possibly even the most. I love the ambiguous morality about him, and the idea that he can be a nasty son-of-a-bitch but still be on the side of good. And I remain optimistic even after HBP. :)

4. Firefly Mal, half guessed by [livejournal.com profile] garran, because his guess made me realize that I really have 2 favourites... so, there's still one more to guess. :)

5. Buffy (not sure that I really have a favourite, actually, but I'll choose the closest answer. ^^) Spike, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] garran. He's the closest I have to a favourite, anyway. As least until s6/7.

6. Lord of the Rings (it's actually a tie for this one, so either answer will count) One of them's Faramir (book!Faramir, that is), guessed by [livejournal.com profile] bk635 after a not-so-subtle clue. ;) Copy-pasting my explanation about why I liked him from my comment below: I'm not sure how to explain what I liked about him... in part it's because I admire his strength of character in not being tempted by the ring, which is why the changes to his character in the movies (TTT, anyway) irritated me. I liked the contrast between him and his brother; both how Boromir was tempted by the ring while Faramir wasn't, and the contrasts in their personalities (Boromir as the strong, proud, ambitious warrior, and Faramir as the quieter, gentler, and more peaceful man who was constantly being overshadowed by his brother). Also his relationship with Eowyn. Although admittedly it's been quite awhile since I've read the books, so I'm a bit iffy on that assessment...

7. Naruto Gaara, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] bronzejarith.

8. House House, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] bk635. Yeah, pretty typical answer, but he really does steal the show... and kudos to BK for also guessing my second favourite, Wilson. ^_^

9. Smallville Lex, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] garran. What can I say, I like morally ambiguous characters...

10. Full Metal Alchemist Roy, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] bk635.

Babylon 5 is notably missing from the list because there is no way that I can choose between them... I love pretty much everyone on it equally. ^_^

WOOT.

*can't wait until October*

Anyway, guess what? Anyone remember how I ordered an FMA doujinshi from CartoonPassion.ca back in December and it never came? Well, it came today. I couldn't stop laughing for about 2 minutes. XD I gave up on that back in March or something! I sent them one email about a month back and never got a reply, and have been vaguely meaning to phone them but never got around to it. Kinda just figured that my $24 were lost forever. According to the envelop, they sent it on June 9th. -___- Well, I guess it shipped pretty quickly at least. *laughs* And the truly pathetic thing? They sent the WRONG DOUJINSHI. -________- I imagine that the one I wanted sold out monthes ago, but they never even contacted me to let me know they were sending a different one! It's still FMA, at least, but instead of Havoc/Roy it's Ed/Roy and Ed/Al. I like the first and am fairly neutral on the second, but I wanted HavoRoy. Though hell, I honestly don't care much anymore. ^^; It's really, really smutty, though. A bit too much over-the-top smut, actually - it's complete PWP. Oh well, the drawings are pretty good and I like smut. ;P
