FREEDOM!!!  
I was *cough* forced to use my carryover vacation days by the end of the month, so I am officially off until the 24th.  Wo0t!!!  I'm going to use this time sleep late, play with my son, and write.  That's correct, I'm going to write something during this time.  It could be that Gundam 00 Allelujah story I teased at a while back, or that chapter of P&C that I started, but didn't finish, or it could be this "Light" side story that popped into my head the other day.  So many choices, I don't even know myself. 

Isn't this exciting?  

Oh look, a meme....

 a. Post a list of 25 A BUNCH OF fandoms.
b. Have your friends list guess your favorite character ONE OF YOUR FAVORITE CHARACTERS from each one.
c. When guessed, bold the line, include the character name, and write a sentence about why you like that character.

EDIT- I've answered the ones that no one guessed.  I'll leave those unbolded (is that a word?) so you can see which ones they were.

1- Gundam Wing- Ah, Trowa.  Since GW was the first series I cut my fanfic teeth on I immediately latched on to Trowa and basically poured my heart into him.  That will always make him special besides the fact that he falls into my quiet, serious bish category.

2- Gundam 00- Well, I mean come on Lockon is effing hot.  I guess his big brotherliness was appealing too.  Allelujah is pretty much tied with him as my favorite, but in light of what went down on the show, I guess he's my official favorite now, but I'll still give you credit franwi

3- Saiyuki- Gojyo.  I usually don't go for the playboy types, but I couldn't get enough of him and he has the angst I so love.  Sanzo runs a close second and, depending on my mood, sometimes beats Gojyo out.

4- Fullmetal Alchemist- Mustang.  As much as I love Ed and Al, Mustang wins in the end.

5- Witch Hunter Robin- Sakaki.  I'm surprised you fans of P&C didn't get this one.  He is the hero of sorts in that story...if hero would be a good word to use. 

6- Blood+- I've said it before, just when I thought Haji couldn't be more awesome, he went and sprouted wings.  That pretty much cemented things for me.

7- Bleach- I love Ishida.  I have this thing for serious, angsty characters, but Ishida still has some funny in him.  I also loved the fact that he was given many stereotypically gay traits, but still kicks major ass.  Sewing...Hello?

8- Naruto- Okay, franwi I'll give you this one too even though your first guess was wrong.  It is Sasuke.  Again my love of angsty, serious, bishies.  Gaara is my second though...I'm starting to like Sai more, but he's basically Sasuke-light.

9- Death Note- I absolutely adored L.  From his love of sweets right down to the way he sat in a chair and all the quirkiness in-between, he was one of those characters you couldn't help but love. 

10- Inuyasha- Miroku.  Ah, the lecherous monk.  He was lots of fun with a healthy dose of angst.  A bit of a con-man, but genuinely goodhearted.

11- Rurouni Kenshin- Kenshin.  He may come across as a bumbling fool, but he was no dummy.  His sweet and caring disposition belied his
bloody past, but he fought to make up for it

12- Samurai Champloo- Jin, what can I say about him?  I always looked at him as more than just your typical stoic character.  He had such wonderful depth to him and rare moments of such naked emotion that I was caught up immediately. 

13- Cowboy Bebop- Come on, who didn't love Spike?  Snarky and good with a gun, nuff said.

14- Innocent Venus- Jo started off as the typical quiet, serious, loner-type that I love, but then the show changed dramatically towards the end and we were shown Jo's tender side.  It was refreshing and not done in a heavy-handed or cheesy way.  Plus, he cried...a lot.  You'll have to watch the show to find out why.^^

15- Ronin Warriors-  Yup, Seiji.  Quiet and serious, plus he swung around a big sword. ^__^

16- D. Gray Man- Yeah, its Kanda.  Noticing a pattern yet anyone?  But I have to say that Lavi runs a very, very close second.

17- Wild Adapter- This is a hard series for me to pick a favorite because both Tokito and Kubota are made of pure awesome, but I think Tokito eeks out a win by a hair.  He's brash, but lovable in an innocent, child-like way.

18- Viewfinder- Takaba.  I do love a snarky uke who doesn't just take crap from the seme without a fight.

19- Crimson Spell-  Ruruka.  It IS the rabbit!  lol  He was just too cute.  I couldn't help it.  As much as I love Val and Havi, I really have to give this one to the bunny.

20- X-Men- Gambit is the man.  What first drew me to him were his eyes- red irises with black sclera.  I thought that was so cool back in my teens when I first began collecting X-Men comics.  And he had the  prerequisite angsty back story. 

21- Gatchaman (aka G-Force.  Oh yeah,  I am that old)  Ken.  I would have to give him the honor as being my first anime crush way back when I was a kid.  Looking back at the horrible dub we were given to watch in the 80's makes me cringe, but the show was my first taste of Japan and Ken had big blue eyes, so yeah...

22- Samurai 7- Kyuzo.  The guy barely spoke, but he pwned with those two swords of his.  It was love at first sight.

23- Loveless- Ritsuka.  I'm again surprised that no one guessed this.  Kemenomimi anyone?  lol  That plus angst is a winning combination in my book.

24- GetBackers- BAN-CHAN!  lol.  Yup, I loved Ban.  He was such a smart ass and he had the most striking blue eyes I have ever seen in an anime.

25- Night Head Genesis- Yes, I was definitely drawn to Naoto, the older half of the hugging brothers with super-powers team.  He was not only the better looking, but the more emotionally stable...I guess.

Wow...I did it.

So what have we learned here tonight?  Basically, I love quiet, brooding, angsty hotties with the occasional funny or suave guy thrown in the mix.  LOL

evilkat_meowevilkat_meow on June 14th, 2008 04:09 am (UTC)
Not too bad. Check the entry for the ones you got right. You can always keep guessing if you'd like.^^

And if you are not familiar with Wild Adapter you must get yourself. If you liked Saiyuki, but wish the guys were more into each other, then you must read this...right this second. Go now and get it! ^__^

oh and #14 the anime you were thinking was Jyu Oh Sei. Innocent Venus was a mecha.
Franfranwi on June 14th, 2008 03:02 pm (UTC)
HA! I can't believe I did so well with the shows I wasn't familiar with. But I wiki'ed them to try to find a character that sounded like he'd be your type. ;)

Gundam Wing - Trowa
Viewfinder - Fei Long
D.Gray-Man - Lavi
Viewfinder - Fei Long
Crimson Spell - Val (don't tell me it's the bunny, lol)
Gatchaman - Jinpei?
Loveless - Hmm, I'm curious now. Maybe Ritsuka's older brother Seimei. That makes me think of a fic where Seimei nearly starved Soubi. Where did I read that? It was disturbing yet erotic. I remember at one point Seimei was feeding Soubi a few almonds from an ornate bowl as his meal for the day. I also read a Ritsu/Soubi punishment fic once that still haunts me. For all the fic I've read on Loveless, I've only managed to watch about the first 3 or 4 episodes of the anime and never read the manga. ;(

BAN-CHAN! It's funny because I'm in the middle of rewatching the series. The gang is about to get out of Mugenjou. I still laugh at Ginji and Akabane teaming up.

Off to do some laundry! Such a beautiful day here after weeks of rain. :)



evilkat_meowevilkat_meow on June 14th, 2008 04:00 pm (UTC)
Only one this time around. You'll eventually be able to figure them out just by process of elimination. lol

I also read that story where Seimei starves Soubi. I think it was by Trixie Chick, but don't quote me on that.

Were you anywhere near the flooding?
Franfranwi on June 14th, 2008 06:51 pm (UTC)
ONLY ONE?! I thought I'd be spot-on this time, lol. Oh well.

The storms weren't too bad for me, personally, but I'm in WI where we had a few areas flooded out. My brother's roof collapsed and a friend's basement flooded. We had three tornado warnings in one afternoon, too, but no major damage. But I see my hometown flooded, though. I'm from Iowa and my grandmother used to live right near the Cedar River. Glad she's not there anymore, but wow, what a mess.
evilkat_meowevilkat_meow on June 15th, 2008 01:03 am (UTC)
His roof collapsed? Wow, is it total loss or minor damage? But I'm glad to hear everyone is okay.

I posted the answers that weren't guessed. Take a look^^
Franfranwi on June 15th, 2008 03:20 am (UTC)
Hahaha. It's interesting to see how you fall for a wide range of characters and not just the "bad boy" or the "tough guy." I laughed at Crimson Spell - it WAS the bunny!

Ritsuka in Loveless, wow. I thought it would be one of the older guys. And Takaba? I crossed him off the list of potentials right away.

I don't know what happened with the WHR picks. I guess between those three guys I went with the more tortured of the P&C crew. The more tortured, the more loved? Well, it just goes to prove that we need another update soon. ;)

You know even though the day was gorgeous here, we ended up getting two big storms this afternoon with a lot of rain. They're saying next Tuesday will be our first real dry day. The roof damage is about 11k but the water caused a bathroom ceiling to bulge and crack and the porch awning is collapsing too, so it'll be about 36k total. Such a mess. But compared to seeing houses floating away on the news, it could be worse!
evilkat_meowevilkat_meow on June 16th, 2008 12:50 am (UTC)
Well, it just goes to prove that we need another update soon. ;)

Yeah, yeah...we'll see what happens this week. And can we say that Amon and Michael are more tortured than Sakaki? I mean, they're each tortured in their own way.^^

36k?!!! Does insurance cover that or will the government be footing some of that bill?
Franfranwi on June 16th, 2008 01:23 am (UTC)
He'll have to refinance for the money. FEMA was out in this area surveying damage, but I don't know if he'd qualify for that loan or if our state will be eligible for their loans. I think it'll be a bit at a time for the repairs, but he has to fix the awning before contractors will start on the roof.

I hope you're enjoying your vacation. Relax, relax, and relax. :)
rookafrk on June 14th, 2008 07:49 am (UTC)

evilkat_meowevilkat_meow on June 14th, 2008 04:01 pm (UTC)
Hey, not too bad. You managed to get a few of them. Check the post to see which ones.^^
rookafrk on June 14th, 2008 10:07 pm (UTC)
considering I only knew few of the shows, i'm surprised lol
And what ? No Amon ? I would have bet a loooooot on him ! Then I'll have to go for Nagira, because of his pimp coat and eternal cigarette, because he must have had to go through each and every level of his brother's emoness and that says a lot and also because I freakin love him and no one ever mentions it ! This is for you Nagira, get some love from the fanbase !!!
ahem...
No really, Haruto would just be too obvious to mention at this point >_>
XD
evilkat_meowevilkat_meow on June 15th, 2008 12:31 am (UTC)
Well, you should have mentioned him because he was my favorite. And believe me, it wasn't until I started writing P&C that I realized how much I loved him. I love all three of the boys a whole lot, but Sakaki wins by just a hair. I've posted the ones that we're guessed if you're interested.
rookafrk on June 15th, 2008 01:02 am (UTC)
lol, I could say the same, this boy won me over slowly but surely... I like to believe it's a very Sakaki-ish trait, that you'd notice just how much you love him only after a while ^^
