Day 1 - A Song You Like With a Colour In The Title.

It was going to be Red Haired Mary (Clancy Brothers version), but I kept having this feeling I'd forgotten something.

Something turned out to be



Blue Monday by New Order, mostly because I've got it filed under "How does it feel?" in my mental jukebox.

The rest of the topics )

Name a fictional character and I'll tell you three reasons I wouldn't want to date them.
redfiona99: (Default)
No offence intended for those who like 'ships I don't like. I'm a firm believer in your ship is not my ship and that's okay. With some of my 'ships, you kind of have to be ;)

1. Randy Orton / Ric Flair (I know but I was suddenly hit with Florton feels while working on fic)
2. Aguilar / Maria from the Assassin's Creed film.
3. Fai / Kurogane, from Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles.
4. Mystique / Hank (Filmverse)
5. Male Imperial Agent / Kaliyo Djannis (SWTOR)
6. Ilya/Gaby/Napoleon Solo (filmverse Man from UNCLE)

Three ships you liked, but don’t like anymore (I have noticed that I don’t really go off ships, canon just moves on from them).

7. Filmverse Hawkeye / Black Widow, except not, may I rec Brown Paper Packages by [personal profile] st_aurafina which is how I like my Hawkeye/Black Widow now that we have Hawkwife.
8. Movieverse Rogue / Pyro
9. Toshiko Sato / Jack Harkness of Torchwood

Four ships you never liked

10. Filmverse Black Widow / Hulk
11. Filmverse Thor / Loki
12. Filmverse Steve Rogers / Bucky Barnes (he’s his best friend. I know this is a major case of this is not my ship and that’s okay).
13. Emily Thorne / Daniel Grayson of Revenge

Two ships you're curious about, but don’t actually ship

14. Scarlet Witch / Vision (Filmverse)
15. Chekhov / Scotty (Rebootverse)

Before anyone says anything, yes, I am aware that most, if not all of my ships are ones where the parties fight together. I have a thing.

I don't use the full thing, but my response to whether I'm helping someone does tend to be "I'm hindering" care of Willow in School Hard.

The Other Days )
redfiona99: (Thinking)
I'm going to go with Lurconis from Band Candy although every time they aimed for reptilian CGI they failed. I have no idea what the problem was (CGI still not being quite up to doing that, not enough budget for better CGI) but it was always the snakey/reptilian demons where it happened.

The Other Days )
redfiona99: (Thinking)
I am aware that I fail 'shipping forever, because I don't have a good answer for this. I am entirely on the Willow/Spike train however, which is odd because Spike/Dru is my Buffy OTP and I <3 both Willow/Oz and Willow/Tara.

(And no, Giles and Ethan don't count because they're non-canonical in the same way Xavier and Magneto are. Barely.)

The Other Days )
redfiona99: (Thinking)
The Zeppo.

Because it's all about how everyone (and anyone) can save the planet, and I am all for that.

As you've had a short meme answer, you can have my long rant about Xander and why everyone who says he doesn't do anything after season 3 is wrong.

Because they are. Because he does more in the later seasons. He's the character that has to grow up and go out into the real world. He has to set up a life entirely unsupported by his family, and he succeeds. While helping the Slayer. And being the only functional person at least twice.

And oh yeah, saves the world single-handedly at least twice.

That's not my definition of not doing anything.

Yes, he's no longer the loser comic relief that chases hopelessly after Buffy and Willow, but you know what, I prefer later series Xander because of that.

The Other Days )
redfiona99: (Thinking)
Is it just me or are the Willow-centric episodes less centred on her than say the Xander-centred episodes are on him?

I've gone with Doppelgangland because it does explore Willow as a character separate to any over-arching season plots. And it's fun. And it contains my favourite Angel scene in the whole series, where Angel goes to the library to tell everyone that Willow is dead and, of course, she isn't, and he is incapable of expressing his happiness and hugs her instead and it's funny and heartwarming.

It also sets up some later stuff about how much vampires are the people they were before, and how much they're the demon that comes in, and, backing up what happened in 'The Wish', when Willow's good she's very, very good and when she's bad, she's horrid.

The Other Days )
redfiona99: (Thinking)
Fool For Love

First, it is a most excellent example of villain as the hero of his own story. Because yes, Spike is self-aggrandizing and giving it some flash in the fight scenes. Also, of course someone who wanted to be a Romantic poet would turn into someone like Spike and it explains *so* much about him.

Then there's the fight scene vs Nikki Wood, which is probably the best fight choreography in the whole series. And I love Spike's narration of the fight.

And then the way that fight scene segues into the Buffy versus Spike scene where she just destroys him, not just in the fight but verbally and that part of the scene is filmed and blocked exactly like a fight and it is just wonderful.

Then Spike shows why he's killed two Slayers before, by skipping the tradition thing and reaching for the shotgun. And of course failing miserably because, as the Judge said, he stinks of love.

The whole episode makes me make all flaily hands.

As Peter got out of the car, Alex turned to him and said, "you know you've always got a place in whatever I'm doing. Three Mills Lane, Bow. Look for the dingy white building next to the Japanese restaurant. I keep telling Dad we need better premises but he's attached to the old place."
redfiona99: (Thinking)
Not sure. I mean, Buffy is a pretty fragmented fandom. I'm fonder of Spike than large sections of fandom, and far fonder of Buffy than another, but distinctly overlapping, part of fandom, and far less fond of Angel than they are.
