|☆ SKARME // because I'm sure you all want to know about me|
Chronic Brit, teenage geek, slight nerd, amateur freethinker, all-round fangirl. Not a very nice person at all.
|☆ FANDOMS // the ones I'm vocal about; see interests for more|
|Proud shipper of: Taichi/Takato! And about twenty other pairings, cross-season or otherwise.|
Favourite seasons: Tamers by a mile, followed by Adventure. Frontier was fun too.
Favourite characters: Very nearly the entire Tamers cast, plus Taichi, Koushirou, Junpei, Takuya...
Favourite Digimon: Guilmon's entire evolutionary line! Although Darkdramon, Renamon, DORUmon, MetalGreymon, Megadramon and generally most of the big badass dragons / birds of prey are all very close.
The dub: Some weird decisions, but it didn't hurt the show's charm in a meaningful way. Doesn't deserve the flak.
Recent seasons?: I miss the quality characterisation, but they all have their moments. And fanservice, well, that's been in the franchise since the start.
|Best generation: Generation II have the nostalgia factor, but IV marked the point when I really started getting invested in these games. And V was a breath of fresh air.|
Competitive battling: I like it! Not particularly good at it, though. I'm the kind of fan who breeds and EV trains in-game, and it doesn't stop me using my favourites.
Pokémon Special: Love. ♥♥♥
The anime: Watched it as a kid, because I didn't live under a rock, but stopped before Indigo had properly finished. Not really interested in starting again.
Favourite Pokémon: Tyranitar! Runners-up: Skarmory, Torchic, Lati@s, Joltik.
|Have watched: Seven: seasons 25 and 26. Nine: a bit. Ten: everything. Eleven: everything to date, but not the games. Would like to fix the embarrassing lack of old-school at some point.|
My Doctor: Ten originally, but Eleven is a serious contender.
Stories I like: Remembrance of the Daleks, Battlefield, Blink, The Fires of Pompeii, The Stolen Earth (but not part 2), The Big Bang, The Doctor's Wife.
Rusty or the Moff?: RTD can write plots. Moffat can write characters. Both come with their own gender issues and other baggage. But the series 4 specials were RTD's, so I'm leaning Moffat until he commits something worse.
Characters I like:
What about Rose?: I'll pass.
|The Sarah Jane Adventures|
|Stories I like: Eye of the Gorgon, Whatever Happened To Sarah Jane?, The Last Sontaran, Secrets of the Stars, Death of the Doctor, Goodbye, Sarah Jane Smith, The Man Who Wasn't There. |
Favourite characters: Alan, Luke, Maria, Rani, Clyde, Sarah Jane, Haresh, Gita, Chrissy. That's nearly all of the major characters, isn't it? Eh, they deserve it.
Team SJA vs. Torchwood?: Team SJA would win, absolutely. Unless the contest was, I don't know, who could accidentally unleash the most destructive cosmic horror onto the unsuspecting Earth in the course of an hour.
|Favourite stories: Night Watch, Thud!, Lords and Ladies, Jingo, Monstrous Regiment, Reaper Man... but I love all of them! Even the earlier ones, though for me the "newer" (and better) books begin with Wyrd Sisters.|
Favourite series: The Watch books. Although the Witches books are damn close, and of course you have to have a soft spot for Rincewind too.
Favourite characters: Granny Weatherwax is up there, but there's no competing with Vimes.
The next Patrician: I like the idea of Ridcully, although he'd either turn down the offer or his regime would collapse after about two seconds.
Where's my cow? Is that my cow?: It goes, "HRRRUUUGH!" It is a hippopotamus! That's not my cow!
|Avatar: The Last Airbender / The Legend of Korra|
Favourite characters: A:TLA: Iroh, Sokka, Aang, Katara, Zuko, oh hell let's say everybody. Azula was a character I loved to hate up until the Book 3 finale, which I think was a work of art. Korra: ALL THE CHARACTERS. But particularly Bolin, who is flawless.
Preferred ships: Sokka/Zuko, Sokka/Aang, Iroh/tea,
Best element?: I would say Air, but nobody wants to get on Toph's bad side.
|They Might Be Giants|
|JF or JL?: Trick question. Next!|
Things I own: Most of my physical collection is listed here. It's not impressive, but it's mine. As far as digital goes... well, keep it between us, OK?
Favourite albums: Lincoln, John Henry, Factory Showroom and The Spine. They're all great, though!
Favourite songs: A list would take up too much space.
Any dislikes?: "Spider", in all of its permutations.
Do you contribute to this fandom at all?: Not really. RPF kind of scares me.
|Manga, 2003 anime or Brotherhood?: 2003. Haven't read/watched the others... yet.|
The ending? CoS?: The former grew on me, the latter and I reached an agreement.
Ships: Not hugely into anything, but Royai is okay.
Aren't you getting into this kind of late?: Yep.
|☆ OUTSIDE FANDOM // it's not much of a life|
Main interests: Writing, reading, sketching, dreaming up plots for original characters that never come to fruition, being incompetent at foreign languages (Japanese, mainly), lurking around various blogs and wikis, typing in a pretentious way, science.
Attention span: About half an hour. This is why I never manage to finish anything.
Pet peeves: Dark text on dark backgrounds, light text on light backgrounds, eye-bleedy layouts in general, being mistaken for somebody else, weaponised humiliation.
Console wars: Nintendo for life!
