Reply and I'll give you four fandoms. You then have to make an entry writing about your favorite character from each fandom, and why.

Transformers

Here's where everyone expects me to say either Shockwave or Mirage. It's true, I do love them dearly. However, neither of them are my favorite character. They are among my favorites, but they aren't my favorite. I'm also an Arcee and Rodimus fangirl, but they didn't grab me 'til late in the series.

I love Prowl. What can I say, I like sexy disciplinarian police cars. I'm not sure why he grabbed be so much when I was a kid. I think I honestly just liked his altmode. A lot. But he was a major figure in the early series, and I enjoy most incarnations of him.

Most, not all. I haven't read all the IDW stuff, but I somehow doubt I'll be happy with it.

Harry Potter

Snape. Hands down. I'm a sucker for snarky bad guys in general, and really, Snape was simply one of the most interesting characters in the series for me. Hermione had potential early in the series, but I really dislike the way Rowling evolved her.

Stargate

Ah, now this gets twitchy. SG-1, or Atlantis? You do not specify, so I must do both.

SG-1: Daniel Jackson. Love me some nerdbait. Much as I love Daniel's evolution through the series (and OMG does Michael Shanks look hot now that he's so buff), I actually prefer lanky, four-eyed, slightly bumbling Daniel from nearly in the series.

Atlantis: Rodney McKay. Again, nerd love, but with snark added. Hewlitt isn't the most attractive character on the series by far, but looks aren't the only reason to fan a character. I just love the way McKay has been brought to life.

Torchwood

I am predictable and agree with the masses. Love me some Captain Jack Harkness. I adored him in Dr. Who, and watched Torchwood strictly on the basis of that. Sure, he's cute, but I love that the character is so... unapologetic. He is what he is, and you either love him or hate him. Barrowman has done an amazing job bringing him to life.

Want me to give you some fandoms to talk about? Comment away!

Ummmm, when I go to RS...it is no longer there. It's listed as an EXPIRED DOMAIN.

*whimpers*

Please tell me it's just my computer being screwy.

EDIT: Apparently there is a records goof on someone's end, since the site is paid up and is specced out for another year. The mods are working on it.

I finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows at 8:32am. So I actually sat down to read at roughly 12:50am, so accounting for a couple of potty breaks and a refresh on the caffeine, 7.5 hours for 750 pages. I feel slow; I used to read faster than that. Admittedly, there were some parts I had to re-read, because for some reason it didn't jive in the brain the first time around. Didn't happen too often, though.

I had, in my sleep-deprived mania, typed up a bullet point, slightly spolier post. With the proper cuts and warnings I might add. However, I am keeping it private through the end of the weekend. Just for those of you with no self control when it comes to spoiler warnings

Finished!

And to avoid my own curse....

HERE THERE BE SPOILERS!!! READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!!! )

You have all been duely warned by the above. I accept no responsibility if you clicky ([livejournal.com profile] the_other_jen I'm looking at you); however, I spoke in broad generalities for the most part. I only really spoiler one thing, and you'll only get it if you have either been big into the Book 7 theories and read a lot of fanfic. And I didn't say a word about the TWO major bits that seriously surprised me (and really are spoilers).

It is 12:42. I have just returned from procuring my copy of Deathly Hallows.

It is my intention not to sleep till I've finished.

I have a bottle of wine at the ready, with which to console/celebrate upon finishing.

Wheeeee!

To ANYONE who posts spoilers for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows without using an LJ cut and flashing neon signs that read "SPOLIERS BE HERE!", may the fleas of a thousand camels nest in your loins.

I am so not kidding.

Just got in from seeing Order of the Phoenix. While it could most definitely have been longer (longest book= shortest movie?WTF?), it is so far my favorite of the series. There were issues, but overall it was a well done film.

It is, however, much more intense than any of the other HP films; younger kids are going to have some issues with certain scenes, for sure.

I'll write a real review tomorrow (later today?). Need sleep.

*fangirl squeee!* I saw the trailer for Stardust! EEEEEEEEE! Now if I can just catch a trailer 30 Days of Night I'll be a happy chick.

And if you haven't read any of the 30 Days comics series and you like vampire horror, it's a must. Hopefully the movie won't screw it up.

Entirely unfair! I was really into a fic on RS and when I changed chapters I got a "can not connect to the database" message. Then, I try the forums page and the home page for the site, same crap.

Grrrrrr

Edit: Back up now, thankfully.

Okay peoples here's the skinny on [livejournal.com profile] metafrantic's latest bit of craziness. I know there are a few other HP writer/fans on my F-list. So go and sign-up! C'mon it'll be fun!

Calling all Harry Potter fans!

I've taken on something I never should have, but with a great deal of help and word of mouth I believe I can pull it off.

Introducing The Great Harry Potter Drabble Challenge! I am seeking ONE 100-word drabble from each of you - which will collectively equal ONE drabble for EVERY PAIRING IN THE HARRY POTTER WORLD! (I hope...)

And yes, there are well over 10,000 possible pairings, if you include all the minor characters!

Please visit the site for more details, and PLEASE, pass the word! This is going to take an amazing amount of communication to pull off!

Thanks!
