Man, is it that time already? Where did this week go?

From [community profile] fannish5: Name five characters who probably shouldn't try to be monogamous.

1. Chiana, from Farscape. Her entire nature is to be an unconfined free spirit, and the bounds of monogamy just really aren't her thing.

2. The Doctor. Despite the opportunity to partner with plenty of other ageless lifeforms out there, he chooses to gad about with humans, which tells me he's interested in a multiplicity of experiences rather than cleaving to one person.

3. James T. Kirk, particularly of the Star Trek Reboot variety, because my take on him is that he's definitely not the type to be happy with monogamy. Commitment, sure, but not monogamy.

4. Tony DiNozzo, of NCIS, because he's just the reverse and it's not working for him: he engages in serial monogamy without the commitment, and he's not happy. IMO, DiNozzo would be happiest in a committed open relationship.

5. Tony Stark, because - let's face it - he's a cad. :)

This week's [community profile] fannish5: Which five canons would you want to live in, and why?

Wheeeee! I mean, this is basically what drew me into fandom in the first place. :D

1. Star Trek Star Trek Star Trek star trek star trek startrekstartrekstartrekstartrekstartrekstartrek. Star Trek. Ahem. To be specific, probably TNG-ish era; I love everything from the aesthetics to the underlying feeling of hope and progress and general goodness. It's a very optimistic canon.

2. I would say Pern but I'm a woman, so, uh, no thanks. Let's go with McCaffrey's The Tower and the Hive canon, provided I'm a Talent, of course. ;)

3. Star Wars, probably around the KOTOR era (i.e. about 4000 years before the original trilogy). (Oh my god, I miss Star Wars Galaxies so much; words cannot express how much I'm looking forward to Star Wars: The Old Republic.)

4. Julian May's Galactic Milieu - again, assuming I got to be one of the cool kids. I think in this case I'd do well as a redactor, or perhaps creator.

5. The last one's hard; so many canons have huge upheavals or really dysfunctional settings for the sake of drama. (This is especially true of gaming canons.) Which means they're great places to play in or read about but man, you really wouldn't want to live there. Marvelverse? Exalted's Creation? Shadowrun's dystopian near-future? Faerun? The Buffyverse? They're all kind of brutal.

So I'm going to say Questionable Content, since it's basically now but with AnthroPCs, and doesn't everyone want a Pintsize of their own?

This week's [community profile] fannish5: Name your five favourite starships.

Ugh, so hard!

1. Serenity. She's such an intrinsic part of the lives of her crew; she's beloved, and home, and family, and absolutely irreplaceable.

2. Enterprise, NCC1701-D. This was the Enterprise I fell in love with, the Enterprise that got me hooked on Star Trek. Even now, of all the fictional ships in the multiverse, she's the one I'd want to serve on.

3. Moya. Everything I said about Firefly and then some. ♥

4. Heart of Gold, because she's elegant and whimsical and is capable of miracles.

5. Enterprise, NX-01. Because I thought the production designers did an excellent job of creating a pre-UFP aesthetic; she really feels like the first, prototypical Enterprise. You can see how later ships developed from her template.

My one ridiculous ambition is to see the Earth from space before I die, and of all the fictional 'verses out there, if I could live in any of them, it'd be Star Trek, TNG-era, working in Starfleet.

Which, actually, makes me think of [personal profile] leupagus's excellent Star Trek Reboot AU, Only Good For Legends, which she just finished. It was a fantastic story, but mild spoilers under the cut )

In other news, I'm coming down sick with a cold, which explains why I'm spending a ridiculous amount of time sleeping lately. So I'm going to retire with some Star Trek DVDs, in honour of this post, and glut myself on spaceships.

Today's [community profile] fannish5:

Name 5 characters you think would have a good time hanging out with you and your friends - in your world, not theirs.

1. Tim McGee (NCIS), because he's basically just like my friends, except for the day job. (If any of my friends are federal agents, they haven't told me...)
2. Marten Reed (Questionable Content), because we're just like his friends, only less crazy and therefore somewhat more relaxing. :)
3. Sam Axe (Burn Notice), because he's incredibly laid-back, and easy-to-please, and this part of the world entirely understands the 'gentleman of leisure' lifestyle he aims for.
4. Hermione Granger (Harry Potter), because, well, birds of a feather flock together.
5. Abby Sciuto (NCIS), because she could have a good time hanging out with anybody.


And now for a weekly roundup, since I'm trying to shake myself out of this uncommunicative rut I'm in.

This week in Eleanorland: )

So apparently I never hit 'Post' on this, oops :)

From [community profile] fannish5:

Name 5 characters you like but that you wouldn't hire to work with you.

1. Temperance Brennan, because I do not deal well with people from whom I get no emotional feedback;
2. Rodney McKay, because I'm not a masochist;
3. James T. Kirk, because Jim Kirk is not so much the "working with" type;
4. Shawn Spencer, because I don't like not being able to tell when someone's lying to me;
5. Arnold Rimmer, because I'd only want to hire competent people. :)
