Here's a meme grabbed from [livejournal.com profile] the_redjay.  Just so y'all know, I probably won't be able to actually reply to comments until Thursday night, but I wanted to go ahead and post while it's on my mind.  Fandoms open for this include Doctor Who, Sherlock, the Whedonverse, LoTR, and probably whatever else you might remember me posting about.

Give me a character and I'll tell you:

Rose Tyler

Why I like them: Rose is compassionate, adventurous, clever, sassy, and determined. She helped the Doctor find his zest for life again after the Time War. Like the TARDIS, she proved to be bigger on the inside. She was my first companion, so she has a special place in my heart.
Why I don’t: Occasionally she's a bit immature, I guess.
Favorite episode (scene if movie, book, manga, etc): Parting of the Ways
Favorite season/movie/book/volume: S1. Her arc from ordinary shopgirl to all-powerful Bad Wolf is fantastic.
Favorite line: "If you're an alien, how come you sound like you're from the North?"
OTP: Doctor/Rose/Jack. Yeah, that's actually an OT3.
Brotp: Rose & Donna
Head Canon: Rose comes to accept TenII as the Doctor, loves him fully, and lives a happy and meaningful life, but she never quite stops missing the TARDIS. After all, it is a part of her.
Unpopular opinion: Rose, Nine, and Jack were the best
A wish: An appearance in the 50th anniversary festivities, so long as she is written as the BAMF defender of the Earth she is.
An oh-god-please-don't-ever-happen: Rose makes a reappearance, but Moffat writes her as nothing more than a clingy girlfriend. Ick.
5 words to best describe them: compassionate, brave, emotional, evolving, wolfish ;)
My nickname for them: Bad Wolf? That's not really my nickname, but I don't know if this question expects me to make one up.

Pippin Took
Why I like them: Keeps going even when he's in way over his head and knows it. He's a devoted friend. Also, I'm very fond of the name Peregrine Took.
Why I don’t: He keeps doing things like throwing rocks in Moria or looking into the Palantir. I spend enough of my working day trying to keep kids from throwing rocks in inappropriate contexts; I find myself getting irritated at that same lack of impulse control in a grown hobbit.
Favorite episode (scene if movie, book, manga, etc): The movie scene when he sings to Denethor really stands out.
Favorite season/movie/book/volume: For Pippin, probably The Two Towers.
Favorite line: "It comes in pints?!"
OTP: I don't really ship him with anybody.
Brotp: Pippin & Merry!
Head Canon: I don't remember what Tolkien says about his family tree in the appendix, but it seems to me like he probably grew up as the youngest child in his family.
Unpopular opinion: Not sure if I have one about Pippin.
A wish: That his second breakfasts are always satisfying.
An oh-god-please-don't-ever-happen: Lord of the Rings 4: The Pippin Chronicles.
5 words to best describe them: impulsive, steadfast, innocent, bold, loyal
My nickname for them: Fool of a Took!

Oz from BtVS

Why I like them: He's a man of few words who still brings across his intelligence and great sense of deadpan humor.
Why I don’t: cheated on Willow that one time and then ran off :(
Favorite episode (scene if movie, book, manga, etc): Either Phases or Graduation Day pt. 2
Favorite season/movie/book/volume: for Oz, Season 3
Favorite line: in thoughts:"I am my thoughts. If they exist in her, Buffy contains everything that is me and she becomes me. I cease to exist." Out loud:: "Hmmmm."
OTP: Oz/Willow
Brotp: The whole Scooby Gang
Head Canon: Some time after leaving Sunnydale, he mentored the young cousin who bit him in the first place on how to control the werewolf changes.
Unpopular opinion: If you forced me to choose between Willow/Oz and Willow/Tara, I'd choose Willow/Oz.
A wish: I wish that Oz lives a happy life, finds love, and learns to control his wolf self enough to use it to fight the occasional demon.
An oh-god-please-don't-ever-happen: the season 8 comics. Nothing in there actually happened, SO THERE.
5 words to best describe them: laconic, droll, perceptive, unflappable, attractive
My nickname for them: Moony

I'm with you on all your please god don't ever happen bits. I also refuse to accept the S8 comics. NOPE, NEVER HAPPENED.

Yeah. I was excited by the concept of the Buffy S8 comics when they were announced, but the more I read of them the more my response became NOPE NOPE NOPE.

Morgana le Fey.

From: [identity profile] tardis-stowaway.livejournal.com
I'm going to assume you mean the version of her from BBC Merlin rather than some other version of Arthurian mythology. I actually haven't yet seen S5, so this may be a bit dated. (I intend to watch it, but S4 made me so mad that it hasn't been tops on my priority list.)

Why I like them: She's a strong-willed, complex woman with legitimate grievances behind her actions. She's a total BAMF. In early seasons, she stood up for what she believed was right. Also, she is just ridiculously gorgeous.

Why I don’t: I hate how in later seasons the writers turned her into an extreme villain who is not just opposing Uther and Arthur but also hurts the common people, something I don't think makes any sense with the Morgana from S1&2.

Favorite episode (scene if movie, book, manga, etc): probably "The Moment of Truth"

Favorite season/movie/book/volume: For Morgana, S1. I love her as the privileged and occasionally self-centered but still compassionate ward of the king. Her solitary struggles with her powers in S2 are also fascinating, but given too little screentime.

Favorite line: "Don't think I don't understand loyalty, just because I've got no one left to be loyal to."

OTP: Morgana/Gwen!!

Brotp: Morgana & pretty dresses get along splendidly.

Head Canon: The fact that she went bad was mostly the fault of Gaius and Merlin. If Gaius had trained her magic as he trained Merlin instead of giving her sleeping potions and lying to her, or if Merlin had confided his own magic to her, she would not have felt so alone. If that had been the case, if she had a support structure for growing her magic but also keeping it secret, she would not have chosen Morgause over the people she knew and cared for her entire life.

Unpopular opinion: More interesting than Arthur and Merlin.

A wish: More ambivalence about her role as antagonist, more efforts to help people other than just herself (like other magic users) even as she continues to work against Arthur. Also, more to do with that new dragon.

An oh-god-please-don't-ever-happen: While Arthur/Morgana incest is part of the legend canon, I hope it stays off this show.

5 words to best describe them: passionate, damaged, stubborn, tragic, gorgeous

My nickname for them: My Lady of the Spectacular Hair

Jack Harkness

Why I like them: He's sexy and sassy, but also so much more than that. He remade himself to be a better man in the Doctor's image again, and remade himself again as a Torchwood leader after the Doctor abandoned him. He has so much love for so many people. He lived through a staggering amount of really awful things, but he broken beyond healing.

Why I don’t: Working for Torchwood doesn't allow a strict black and white morality, but sometimes he has strayed a little far into the dark grey.

Favorite episode (scene if movie, book, manga, etc): "Utopia" for Doctor Who, probably "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" for Torchwood.

Favorite season/movie/book/volume: I can't even choose. I love all his appearances on Doctor Who, and for Torchwood S2 and Children of Earth are both favorites for very different reasons.

Favorite line: "Who looks at a screwdriver and thinks ooh, this could be a little more sonic?"

OTP: It's a hard call between Jack/Doctor/Rose and Jack/anything capable of giving consent.

Brotp: Jack & Rhys

Head Canon: He will not actually become the Face of Boe. As a seasoned time-traveler, he knew of the Face and was deliberately attempting to mess with the Doctor's head when he implied that he would become the Face of Boe.

Unpopular opinion: I guess the above head canon is unpopular among people who are love the amusement value of Jack being the Face of Boe.

A wish: I hope that Jack both appears in the 50th anniversary festivitiess, where I hope he (a) gets to kiss at least one regeneration of the Doctor, and (b)also seriously comes on to at least one non-male to reaffirm the pansexuality that Miracle Day ignored.

An oh-god-please-don't-ever-happen: I hope he never gives up on being a hopeless flirt with all genders and species.

5 words to best describe them: flirtatious, resilient, courageous, bold, captain.

My nickname for them: Captain No Pants

Mycroft Holmes

Why I like them: Gets shit done. Takes care of Sherlock even when Sherlock is an ass. Really works that umbrella.

Why I don’t: The reasons I would dislike him if I had to deal with him in person (he's obnoxious, emotionally distant, elitist, and overdramatic) just make him a more entertaining character to watch.

Favorite episode (scene if movie, book, manga, etc): I love his initial meeting with John in ASiP when he lets John think that he's Sherlock's enemy (convincing half the audience that he's Moriarty) and diagnoses that John actually misses aspects of the war. The conversation with Sherlock after Irene's first supposed death is also stellar.

Favorite season/movie/book/volume: Can't possibly choose.

Favorite line: "You're not haunted by the war, Dr. Watson. You miss it. Welcome back."

OTP: Mycroft/"Anthea"

Brotp: Mycroft has no bros. Mycroft needs no bros. He obviously has a brother, but that's different from a bro.

Head Canon: Sherlock did not reveal his plans to fake his death to Mycroft. Mycroft immediately has suspicions, but he is in the horribly frustrating position of not being able to be sure. He will, however, confirm that Sherlock is alive well before John knows when Sherlock attempts to access money or contacts that aren't as secret from Mycroft as Sherlock had assumed.

Unpopular opinion: I just don't get the popularity of Mycroft/Lestrade. It's great that the fandom has a diversity of ships beyond just Sherlock/John, and of course I don't think there's anything wrong or icky about the Mycroft/Lestrade ship, but I personally don't grok why it's such a huge draw.

A wish: I hope that Mycroft tells Sherlock off for what his "death" did to John.

An oh-god-please-don't-ever-happen: I hope he never stops communicating with John largely through kidnappings.

5 words to best describe them: intelligent, calculating, guarded, powerful, dramatic.

My nickname for them: Mycroft Poppins
