Because I can't focus on a darn thing today. Might as well steal this sucker from happywriter06:

List all your fandoms, have your friends pick one and tell them:

1. The first character I fell in love with:
2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now:
3. The character everyone else loves that I don't:
4. The character I love that everyone else hates:
5. The character I would sex up or make out with anytime:
6. The character I'd want to be like:
7. The character I'd slap:
8. A pairing that I love:
9. A pairing that I despise:
10. Favorite character:
11. What are your five favorite things about your fandom?
12. What are your five least favorite things about your fandom?
13. Who are your five favorite characters?
14. Who are your five least favorite characters?
15. What are your five favorite pairings?
16. What are your five least favorite pairings?
17. Which character are you most like?
18. What is your deep, dark fandom secret?

My Fandoms (that I claim, anyway). Asterisked ones are in the comments below:
**Supernatural
**Prison Break
**House, M.D.
Reaper (pretty new)
L&O: SVU
24
Oz
**The Shield
**Queer As Folk (S1 only)
Smallville (mostly dead to me now)
**Lost
**Arrested Development
**Simpsons-- can I put a cartoon show on the list?
Did I miss anything obvious? My brain is like a sieve.

ETA: Do I have any deep, dark fandom secrets? I thought most of my opinions were well-known. And in a couple of them, boy-- it'll be hard to find five pairings. Unless I get random, like Dean/Metallicar and Dean/Wall and Michael/Heartache. Maybe I'll throw in the Gen pairings too.

And here I thought you'd pick Prison Break! Though I wonder if any of the answers would be a surprise then. Hmmmm...

Okay, QaF (limited because I've only S1 plus 4 eps of S2 thus far):

1. The first character I fell in love with: Michael Not sure how I feel about him now, but definitely loved him early S1.
2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now: Emmet I so hate the swishy stereotype, but Emmet is so sweet underneath that camp that he won me over.
3. The character everyone else loves that I don't: Brian or Justin. I don't know if other people actually like Brian-- maybe everyone hates him like I do. I definitely don't like Justin.
4. The character I love that everyone else hates: Eeep! I don't know the fandom very well, clearly. Um... boggles... N/A.
5. The character I would sex up or make out with anytime: Dr. Dave
6. The character I'd want to be like: Erm... I got nothing here.
7. The character I'd slap: Brian
8. A pairing that I love: Michael & Emmett friendship.
9. A pairing that I despise: Brian/Justin
10. Favorite character: still Michael, though he's less mature than I'd hoped.
11. What are your five favorite things about your fandom? Hot boys, boykissing, boySexing, snarky humor, the dismal glory of the awful Big Q.
12. What are your five least favorite things about your fandom? GirlKissing, girlSexing (sorry, not my thing at all), Brian/Justin, caricature Debbie (good heart, dumb veneer), that "Dr." Dave is a chiropractor.
13. Who are your five favorite characters? Michael, Emmet, Ted, Baby Gus, Justin's mother.
14. Who are your five least favorite characters? Brian, Justin, Lindsay's sister, Justin's father, secretHomoTeenBoy who beat up Justin.
15. What are your five favorite pairings? Michael/Emmet friendship, Michael/Dr. Dave (hotness), Ted/Melanie (friendship), Baby Gus/everybody, Captain Astro/LivingRoom.
16. What are your five least favorite pairings? Brian/Justin, Brian/anybody, Brian/Michael (that oversexualized friendship steams me, because it leads Michael on), explicit Melanie/Lindsay, Debbie/kitsch (no, seriously!)
17. Which character are you most like? Ted, god help me.
18. What is your deep, dark fandom secret? BoyKissing is hot to me and girlKissing is squick, which doesn't mean that other people should feel that way but... there it is.

The Good, The Bad and The Lana: smilie priyankathelana on January 16th, 2008 11:41 pm (UTC)
People honestly love Aldo? I mean not just find him interesting, but truly love him?

Michael/Lincoln (Slash), Michael/Lincoln (Gen)

*snort*

Didn't know that about you and Pope :)
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphorshalfshellvenus on January 16th, 2008 11:52 pm (UTC)

I don't know. They want to read stories about him, and I hate both him and the idea of him (and his storyline) so much that I want to pretend that part of the show just doesn't exist. :0

Didn't know that about you and Pope :)
Early Michael was cold, early Lincoln was a non-entity. But Pope? Very clear character right from the beginning, firm but well-meaning and working to serve his ideals. I absolutely loved him right from the start.

Did you really?? I suppose I have you to thank for getting me back into fandom then! After Harry/Draco I took a fandom hiatus of like, three years.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: PB slashhalfshellvenus on January 17th, 2008 12:43 am (UTC)
Did you really??
Oh, yes. Cheesy as this story is (my first fanfiction ever, and it shows), check the original posting date on Rescue and Revelations. Sept 23-- less than a month into the show! :0

Hmmm, Harry/Draco-- hateSex all the way! Not my thing, though, because of their ages. I'm old enough to be utterly squicked by that!
Deadbeat Nymph: lincoln scrapedeadbeat_nymph on January 17th, 2008 12:49 am (UTC)
I started the Michael/Lincoln slash fic genre.

I freaking KNEW IT! When I first joined fandom and did my, erm, 'research', I never found anything pre-you. And I remember discussing with a friend of mine how if it hadn't been for PB, neither of us would ever have discovered slash (aside from our own personal sighsy thoughts that we never knew anyone else shared). And I said, 'Actually, I think it's all because of HalfShell, because I'm pretty sure she invented Michael/Lincoln.' :-o

We thank you.

Everything you said about Aldo? Word, word, word. I lobotomized my slash brain to remove him forever. He does not, nor has he ever, existed.
The Good, The Bad and The Lanathelana on January 17th, 2008 01:15 am (UTC)
I'm slightly confused. I never cared much for the idea of Aldo, simply because it gave me too many bad X-Files flashbacks, but I don't really see how Aldo would make any difference to the slash factor.

Hahaha! Yes, that's what I like to call it too. *purrs happily*

We thank you.
You're welcome! Nice not to be a pariah for starting up that pairing, though I could swear that the youngsters these days don't even know I write it! :0

He does not, nor has he ever, existed.
And I so wish I could do that to canon. Abandoning drunk of a father? Sure-- I'm good with that. OMG_SuperSecretSpyDaddyConspiracyGuy where everything is ultimately about HIM? Oh Jesus, no. Dumbest idea ever! Gah!

5. The character I would sex up or make out with anytime: So not a secret-- Lincoln
I'm curious as to why you prefer Lincoln to Michael for teh_sex? I always knew you appreciated Dom, but I guess I just figured you liked Went/Michael more. What a pleasant surprise!

Emme~~~t!!! Oh, how I ADORE him.

Lol for the girlSexing as one of your least favorites. I always watched QaF with my friend on DVD and we'd fast-forward through the lesbian sex because it was just so... estrogen-filled, with breasts everywhere, and all that boring stuff.

It's icky to me altogether, so I also fast-forward through it.

I never know how long an episode's actually going to last for me-- if there's a lot of Melanie/somebody sexing and Brian/Justin slow-dancing or what-not, I'll be fast-forwarding through a lot of it!

9. A pairing that I despise: Brian/Justin

Oh lord, thank you. I hate how their relationship was portrayed as the be all and end all of gay coupledom, and like Brian sexing up (and at times taking advantage of) a young, nieve Justin was something to be respected and aspire to. Ick. Brian was a jerk, selfish, uncaring, constantly willing to hurt and put down his friends and this guy who he was supposed to be in love with, and I never got why he was supposed to be the hero of the show. Hate.

Brian/Michael (that oversexualized friendship steams me, because it leads Michael on

I always loved the idea of this pairing, but I hate how they wrote it, how they basically took it nowhere and wrote things as if Michael will always be in love with Brian, but he'll settle for someone else. It felt like that issue between them was never solved, just dropped in favor of more Brian/Justin.

God. If the ultimate gay coupledom is a narcissistic partner who cheats on you right and left and throws you over constantly for the next best thing-- and the other half is a petulant teenager with a lisp-- then heaven help gay men everywhere. I think most guys with half a brain will easily do better than this. :0

I always loved the idea of this pairing
I really don't, but it's mainly because I wouldn't wish Brian on anyone. No-one deserves the kind of self-centered grief that comes with someone like him. What really bothers me in early S2 (which is as far as I've gotten) is that Brian's increasing his seductive behavior in a way that makes me think he's trying to keep Michael 'hooked'-- that he loves the power of having Michael hanging on his attention, even though he has no intention of ever going through with it. :(
