So... the new Doctor in Doctor Who has been announced and it's... Matt Smith. Never heard of him, but he's apparently the youngest Doctor-actor ever (26). Ah well, I hope he does okay, though it also depends on Steve Moffat, I suppose (but I think he's a better writer than Russel T Davies anyway). David Tennant has been a good Doctor even thought I definitely had my problems with the 10th Doctor and lost my interest in the end.
ETA: LOL at fandom_secrets for already making a 11th Doctor Wank!Bingo card. I should check out Fandom Wank tomorrow to see if anything happens.
ETA 2: The wankiness has already started! Hooooly shit.

I have only one New Year resolution this year: Make my teenage brother shave, dammit. He has this vague fuzz and it looks like he has dirt on his face. Here's an actual conversation today:
Brother's geek friend: *sees that brother has left for the toilet* When is he going to shave?
Me: Dude, you have no idea how much I tried.
B's GF: :(

Favorite character: Gah! *dies* Sansa, I think.
Least favorite character: I don't really have least favourite characters. Lem, I suppose? He did really annoy me.
Character with the best hair: Sansa. Or Cersei. Or Margaery. Or Arianne. Well, they all have fabulous curly hair, it's just hard to pick which hair colour.
Character with the best eyes: Dany with her purple eyes. And Loras when Sansa is gushing over him, LOL
Character I'd most want to kiss: Jon >.>
Character I'd most likely screw: Robb. Sorry Jaime, but you have issues and Oberyn is too overwhelming for me. And Robb is buff and young and red headed and gah, I'm so shallow XD
Character I'd make lunch for: Tommen <3 Daeron the Drunk and Brienne are good seconds.
Character I'd go singing in the rain with: Sarella.
Character I'd go shopping with: Margaery. Or Sansa.
Character I'd go dancing with: Garlan.
Character I'd take over the world with: LOL. I'll forgo Petyr and go with Dany.
Character I'd most want to cosplay as: Cersei. I don't think she only has the boob exposing dresses everyone draws her with. And she sure has some awesome sounding dresses in the books.
Favorite het pairing: Jaime/Brienne and Cat/Ned
Favorite yaoi (m/m slash) pairing: Haha! I think it's a tie between Loras/Renly and Loras/Jaime
Favorite yuri (femslash) pairing: Margaery/Cersei. Or for randomness, Margaery/Sarella. I blame Revolutionary Girl Utena >.>

Can I ask you about Amber yet? If not, Discworld right back at you :)

I'll do them both!

From: [identity profile] cloud-wolf.livejournal.com
I only have one Amber book left, but I don't think that will matter much in the grand scheme of things. Unless Merlin pulls something superlame. But I definitely don't regret reading the Merlin Chronicles. I have the feeling they're higher on humour too.

Favorite character: Hard! Random for the first five and Luke for the last five.
Least favorite character: I actually like Llewella when she says things, even though she's still a bit random. So I think I'll go with Victor Melman, that occult dude, he annoyed me.
Character with the best hair: The redheads (So that would be Fiona, Bleys, Brand and Luke)
Character with the best eyes: Corwin. Green is cool.
Character I'd most want to kiss: Bleys
Character I'd most likely screw: Mandor or Luke
Character I'd make lunch for: Martin
Character I'd go singing in the rain with: Random
Character I'd go shopping with: Flora for clothes and Mandor for awesome magic tricks (seriously, I thought those metal balls were awesome)
Character I'd go dancing with: Bleys.
Character I'd take over the world with: Oberon.
Character I'd most want to cosplay as: etrangere is right, Deirdre with her armor and ax would be pretty cool.
Favorite het pairing: Can't pick between Julian/Fiona and Mandor/Fiona. (I also like Mandor/Jasra)
Favorite yaoi (m/m slash) pairing: Luke/Merlin OTP forever.
Favorite yuri (femslash) pairing: Hm. I'll go with what you said, Fiona/Flora.

Favorite character: Granny and Vetinary.
Least favorite character: I don't really have a least favourite discworld character. Vorbis for the creepiest?
Character with the best hair: SUSAN! :D
Character with the best eyes: Weird, I don't remember any eyecolours. LOL, Greebo :D
Character I'd most want to kiss: Haha, I'll just agree with you and say Carrot.
Character I'd most likely screw: Moist is pretty cool too, yeah.
Character I'd make lunch for: Rincewind. I can prepare potatoes.
Character I'd go singing in the rain with: Agnes. Cool opera voice ftw.
Character I'd go shopping with: Cheri, lol.
Character I'd go dancing with: Death
Character I'd take over the world with: Vetinari, duh.
Character I'd most want to cosplay as: SUSAN
Favorite het pairing: Vimes/Sybil. They're so cute.
Favorite yaoi (m/m slash) pairing: I have none... how odd. This is really odd O_O Okay, what about Vetinari/Vimes? Or Vetinari/Moist.
Favorite yuri (femslash) pairing: Polly/Maladicta. Monstrous Regiment was really full of Les Yay.

Mandor for awesome magic tricks (seriously, I thought those metal balls were awesome)

Me too! I want some!

Vorbis for the creepiest?

He's definitely the creepiest! But he is actually one of my favorites -- not top 5 or event top 10 probably, but a favorite, because of how supremely creepy he is.

Character with the best hair: SUSAN! :D

I knew I was forgetting something really obvious! XP Susan's hair is pretty awesome.


Character I'd go dancing with: Death

Haha, aww!

And our Discworld favorite pairings all match! (And our Amber ones mostly do, too.)

Re: I'll do them both!

Date: 2009-01-04 12:55 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] cloud-wolf.livejournal.com
Yeah, I know, I think Vorbis is an awesome character but I can't say I have any character I dislike.

Death would be awesome to dance with, seriously XD

Yeah, I noticed that, the discworld ones are pretty easy, there really isn't much spectacular shipping going on there (I do like Magrat/Verence and Tiffany/Roland in earlier books, because Wintersmith is the only pterry book I felt meh about)

Re: I'll do them both!

Date: 2009-01-04 01:16 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] hamsterwoman.livejournal.com
Yeah, I was kind of meh about Wintersmith too... except for Horace the cheese, which was kind of awesome.

Well, there's Carrot/Angua, too, which I somewhat like, but more for the Carrot side of it. And I agree Magrat/Verence was quite cute. Oh, oh, and I totally forgot -- Granny/Mustrum Ridcully! Part of what makes Lords and Ladies my (I think) favorite Witches book. In fact, I should totally go add them to my answer re: het ships.

"I have only one New Year resolution this year: Make my teenage brother shave, dammit. He has this vague fuzz and it looks like he has dirt on his face."

Lol! XD Well being a teenage guy who's family is also annoyed cause he is not shaving as often as he should, I feel like I should be supporting your brother, but since I'm nice I'll tell you the secret. Every day my mum says I need to shave I don't, because if I shaved then it would feel like she'd won. So if you want your brother to shave, don't tell him to shave, come with little negs instead like for example "You know the beard maybe isn't such a bad idea after all, it makes you look like *insert beardy person your brother would hate to look like*. Make his geek friend and possibly other friends do the same and he'll shave. If this does not work, nothig will, and your brother will become Santa Clause.

Also Greek Mythology! :D

A fine choice!

Hey, Maxxie! :D

LOL, thanks for the tip. I did have the feeling that my brother decided to be contrary when I kept telling him to shave.

Favorite character: Apollo. I heart him.
Least favorite character: Zeus.
Character with the best hair: They all have fabulous hair, no doubt, but I'll go with Aphrodite who in my imagination has long brown wavy hair.
Character with the best eyes: Athena, with her blue grey warrior eyes.
Character I'd most want to kiss: Hermes <3
Character I'd most likely screw: Dionysus, after he got me drunk, lol.
Character I'd make lunch for: Hephaestus, poor guy,
Character I'd go singing in the rain with: Pan :D
Character I'd go shopping with: Cupid and Psyche
Character I'd go dancing with: Hermes.
Character I'd take over the world with: Hera! Or Odysseus
Character I'd most want to cosplay as: Athena. The armour would be awesome.
Favorite het pairing: Athena/Ares
Favorite yaoi (m/m slash) pairing: Apollo/Hyacinthus. So tragic. And Achilles/Patroclus, duh.
Favorite yuri (femslash) pairing: Iphis/Ianthe (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iphis) but not the cop-out version where Iphis gets turned into a male. >:|

Well keep us updated on how the resolution progress.

You like Skins too! My firend, you have an epic and very fine taste in books and TV shows. Can I comment again for skins? :P

Aww Cupid and Psyche is such a sad story. In the Duke's Bedroom at Tullgarn there's a thapestery that shows the myth, I've always loved it.

Yes, it's also one of my favourite myths, I especially love the Bouguereau paintings of Cupid and Psyche. But then again, I love all Bouguereau's paintings.

Yeah, I rather like Skins, it's a trippy show. I hope the next season with Effy's people will be fun.

Favorite character: Cassie
Least favorite character: Sketch is so fucked up

Yeah me too. I was rather sad none of the originol characters, save Effy and Sketch (bleƤh) was going to be in next season, but it'll probably be great.

Tony does have eyes to drown in, althoug I don't like him, he's such a manipulative bitch. He should try out as appretis to Littlefinger, the world would shiver in fear.

Haha, yes. I'll be honest and say that Nicholas Hoult sometimes looks like I imagine Jon Snow, especially in this picture (http://blog.sina.com.cn/s/blog_4e6207cc01008xbd.html). But not always. Mostly I just wonder how Hoult feels acting in all those scenes, I'd be so embarrassed >.>

You know he could probably work for Jon. A bit on the old side but Jon's suppuose to be 17 in the Tv series. Not the exact way I've pictured him, but he's a good actor and could hopefully portray Snow's personality right wich is the most important.

I wish I worked as castor for this series.

Because he was my first Greek Myth crush when I first got my Greek Myth book as a kid (I really used to love those cheerful tricksters). Besides, I imagine him having this really mischievous grin and I rather like that.

LOL, IMO it's a process of elimination. Apollo is emo in comparison (so to speak), Ares is nasty, Hephaestus is sad and Zeus is, well, Zeus. And Hermes has cool things like winged sandals and a caduceus, not to mention the fact that he's the god of thieves. It's no surprise he's the favourite of many.

Ah! I see now. Well, when he was born his first action was to steal Apollo's suncows, he defeated the monster Argus by trickery, he was the one who made Apollo's lyre when he was a toddler in trade for his caduceus (which is sometimes used as a symbol for medicin, though mistakenly, haha) and if I'm not mistaken he was also the one who taught his son Pan how to masturbate because Pan wasn't getting any from nymphs (though, err, I didn't get that from my Myth book >.>)
