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.

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 :)

People honestly love Aldo? I mean not just find him interesting, but truly love him?
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.
The Good, The Bad and The Lanathelana on January 16th, 2008 11:59 pm (UTC)
I think part of the reason why I really enjoyed the most recent episode was that I have missed it so much that a good guy is in charge of the prison, that there are authority figures that can actually be trusted and that there actually genuinely well meaning people out there.

(I would count Lang under this, but I wish there was a way women could help our guys without coming off looking like total suckers. I already see the longing looks from Lang. Which actually isn't a problem, except that he is like so not worth is. Speaking of which. You need to write Lang Gen. *tries to stare at you hypnotically*)

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!

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.
Deadbeat Nymph: michael eyesdeadbeat_nymph on January 17th, 2008 01:23 am (UTC)
Oops! My bad. I meant 'fandom', or 'fic', or 'show'... which, for me, are all interchangeable with 'slash'. *hangs head*

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!

The least they could've done is follow through with that storyline - but they killed him off after, what, three episodes? So lame. What the hell was the point? And why does EVERY. SINGLE. CHARACTER have to be part of this grand conspiracy??

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!
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: DominicSexyhalfshellvenus on January 18th, 2008 07:36 am (UTC)
Oh gosh, that picture of Dominic cracks me up!

but I guess I just figured you liked Went/Michael more.
Not that way! Which seems to be rare, but there it is.

It was somewhere in Season 1 that thelana read an M/L story I'd written, "Awakenings," and said, "Huh. I never realized before that you found Lincoln much more attractive than Michael." And I thought, "Wait, that was a secret? I thought it was obvious!" And then I told her that it wasn't until about 5-6 eps in that I realized Went was pretty good-looking too (which probably made her think I was slow-witted or a complete idiot).

I watched the show at first only because Dominic was on it and I'd loved him in John Doe. The storyline got me hooked, but Michael himself... all that steely-eyed aloofness of his was very unattractive to me. The post-riot falling apart in his cell was when my opinion of him changed. ;)

Lincoln just has this raw sex appeal for me-- which is mostly Dominic, because bad-boys aren't my thing at all. Michael... does not always seem terribly masculine to me, honestly. :0

Isn't that such a great icon? Pucker up, Buttercup.

Not that way! Which seems to be rare, but there it is.
Which is why I tend to cling to those that appreciate Dom over Went, because there are so few of them.

Lincoln just has this raw sex appeal for me-- which is mostly Dominic, because bad-boys aren't my thing at all. Michael... does not always seem terribly masculine to me, honestly
And this is exactly how I see it. Michael has his moments of masculinity, but Linc is right there in your face, breathing masculinity. *flails*

Anyway, a very pleasant surprise. Yummeh. I also have a story called Awakening (L/Sara) that I think shows my desire for him quite well. Hee. I've always liked you, but I didn't realize you were kindred.
