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:
**Prison Break
**House, M.D.
Reaper (pretty new)
**The Shield
**Queer As Folk (S1 only)
Smallville (mostly dead to me now)
**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.

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 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. :(
