I think I'm going to unsub from all my political groups on LJ and keep the political stuff mostly on facebook. Not that I won't post or rant about politics at all, but I really want to get back into fandom, and keeping this space as mostly-fannish/semi-personal will help a LOT. I may keep a few of my news feeds, but I can read them on Google, so there's really no need.

I'm going to try to make at least two posts here a week to start with. A lot of fandom is passing me by, and I want back in! So, that's where you guys come in. Tell me important stuff that's going on! Meetups? Challenges? I want to WRITE again! Definitely doing DSSS as usual (the day I don't do that, I'll know I'm out of fandom, and I'm NOT OUT OF FANDOM, DAMMIT), so I have to get in gear! Help, plz?

Now I'm off to the YMCA (cue dorky dancing) to renew my membership. IT'S (ALMOST) AUTUMN AND I'M PUMPED, GUYS! :)

More character meme answer. This time, from [ profile] andeincascade (HI ANDE, I MISS YOUUUU!): Benton Fraser!

* How I FEEEEEL about this character.

Fraser has a very special place in my fannish heart. If he isn't my favourite character ever, he's right up there in a dead heat with them that are.I would love to have him for a friend, and if he were my enemy I'd run off and hide on another PLANET, because he'd find me no matter where I ran on Earth, and being on the receiving end of a pissed-off Benton Fraser would be all kinds of scary. I love his sense of right and wrong, and his fierce, unwavering loyalty. I love his idealism and his passion. I love how when he talks you can actually hear the parentheses and semicolons. I especially love that he isn't perfect, even though he wants desperately to be. He has a dry wit and a stealth sense of humour that I only dream of coming close to having.

Fraser is probably the character who is most like me in any of my fandoms (although he is a much better person and much, much prettier *g*). I want to be Benton Fraser when I grow up, only without the baggage. I don't know whether I want to shtup him or talk to him for hours, or both. Probably both.

* All the people I ship romantically with this character.

Ray Kowalski--it's canon, dude. They literally ride off into the sunrise together. Ray Vecchio, too, yes--I've actually written F/V a couple of times-- but it's usually as part of an OT3, and only in fanon. I tend to look at Vecchio in canon as Fraser's soul-brother. They're so much more than just friends, but their love bends toward philos rather than eros. Which doesn't diminish it from his love for Kowalski--Fraser would die in a heartbeat for both of his Rays.

Also, and definitel not least--Meg Thatcher. I ship Fraser/Thatcher hard, and I'm not ashamed to say it. I love, love Thatcher. I wish there was more good Fraser/Thatcher fic out there (it does exist, though--[ profile] icepixie and [ profile] tanyareed have both written excellent Fraser/Thatcher fics (some of which are up at [ profile] fraser_thatcher * My non-romantic OTP for this character.

Fraser and Ray Vecchio. See above. (and I do write, and read, F/V and F/K/V. But gah, platonic!F/V is so lovely. I don't understand why platonic is almost universally considered Less Than, when it's equally as awesome, dammit!). I also have to put a plug in for Fraser's entirely wonderful relationship with Diefenbaker. I'm all about platonic!F/V/D. :D

* My unpopular opinion about this character.

Fraser is not shy with women in whom he's interested. I mean, um. Victoria, anyone? Sure, he's uncomfortable with unwanted attention from women who look at him as a sex object. But when he's interested, OMG, he's interested. Guh.

* One thing I wish would happen/had happened with this character in canon.

Wow, hmm, I dunno. I definitely wish he'd have not worn the red serge so much in seasons 3 and 4. I also wish there would have been more of him working with both Rays.

A while back I wrote an entire post for [ profile] ds_workshop called Fraser being Fraser, in which I say a bunch more about Fraser. I also wrote a GIANT personal backstory for him. If you read both of those (and I'd love it if you did!), you'll pretty much get my feelings about who Fraser is and why I love him so. very. much.

In conclusion, Benton Fraser, RCMP.

I'm actually starting to answer my character meme comments without letting months go by, go me!

First one, from [ profile] lucifuge_5 (HI, LUCE, HOWTHEHECKAREYOU?): Geoffrey Tennant!

* How I FEEEEEL about this character.

I love him, which is obvious. I love his talent, his eccentricity, his devotion to Ellen and to his art, his dry wit, his intellect, his hair, his clothes, that little-boy-lost look he has. Oh, and he is so, so pretty and doesn't even know it.

I'm with Leonard Cohen: I know that he's half-crazy, but that's why I want to be there. Did I mention I love him? I do, so very much.

* All the people I ship romantically with this character.

Ellen, period. Sure, there's obvious unrequited Geoffrey/Oliver, but it's one-sided on Oliver's part, so it doesn't count for the question.

* My non-romantic OTP for this character.

Geoffrey/Anna is my platonic OTP for the whole show. They are so very good for each other in a BFF way. And in an AU where Ellen doesn't exist and never has, I would ship them romantically.

* My unpopular opinion about this character.

I think he's straight. As in not gay, not bi. That being said, I still like the idea that he and Darren had a thing back when they were in university. ;)

* One thing I wish would happen/had happened with this character in canon.

SEASON FOUR, DAMMIT. I would have loved to see him and Ellen trying to run Theatre Sans Argent together.

Meme gacked from [ profile] moony:

Leave the name of a character/person from a fandom you know I'm in, and I will tell you:

* How I FEEEEEL about this character.

* All the people I ship romantically with this character.

* My non-romantic OTP for this character.

There is a XF/Rocky & Bullwinkle crossover. I have not read it yet. I don't care if it's good or bad, really (although it would be great fun if it's cracky and good). Just the fact that it exists makes my whole day.

Also, GIP.

You may now resume your regularly scheduled surfage.

ETA: This fic is cracktastic. Go read now, plz.

P.S. I saw the Floating Disembodied Head of Stephen Harper on the news this morning. It had stubble. *shudder*

They have called this day the Eleventh of March! And whomsoever of you gets through this day, unless you are shot in the head or somehow slain, you will stand at tiptoe when e'er you hear the name again, and you will get excited at the name March the Eleventh!

We happy few, we few, we band of brothers. Our names will be as like household names. And those who are not here, be they sleeping or doing something else, they will feel themselves...sort of crappy. Because they are not here join the fight, on this day, the Eleventh of March!

From [ profile] fannish5:

What 5 characters would you like to be stranded on a desert island with?


With what five characters would you like to be stranded on a desert island?

1. Benton Fraser. It's obvious. If I were stranded on a desert island with Fraser, well, I just wouldn't be for very long. Dude. This guy can escape from a sinking ship, a flooding bank vault, and a hundred other dire situations. And even if it took awhile, it's okay, because Fraser is smart, interesting and fecking gorgeous.

2. Anna Conroy. Even if we couldn't escape, she'd make me feel better about it all, and she could come up with an idea or two about how to make it work.

3. Diefenbaker. Because he's Dief! He'd help out hunting for dinner and stuff, and he's a good conversationalist. *g* Besides, it would make Fraser happy.

4. Harry Potter. Um, because he's got magic. Fastest way off the island. Except I'm a Muggle, so it might not work, but hey. It's worth a try.

5. MacGyver. Team this guy up with Fraser and there'd be no question of being stranded. We'd all be home in two shakes of a lamb's tail (well, okay, that's what Fraser would say, not me).
