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 Simpsons REALLY makes some of the answers come out weird!

1. The first character I fell in love with: Apu. "Thank you for shopping at my QuikiMart-- I'll see you in Hell!"
2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now: The Scottish janitor!
3. The character everyone else loves that I don't: Bart. I rejoice when Homer chokes him. :0
4. The character I love that everyone else hates: Dr. Soydberg. Oh wait, wrong show!
5. The character I would sex up or make out with anytime: Hahahahaha! Oh god, that's so wrong!
6. The character I'd want to be like: Marge. Somehow serene, despite all the dumb that surrounds her. ;)
7. The character I'd slap: Bart (of course).
8. A pairing that I love: Marge/Homer (surprisingly romantic for animated characters).
9. A pairing that I despise: Burns/Smithers (because Smithers deserves much better).
10. Favorite character: The Channel Ocho Bee!
11. What are your five favorite things about your fandom? Still funny all these years later, still random at the most surprising times, the television museum with "Things that talk but shouldn't," "Back to the loch with you, Nessie!," and that Homer Simpson daydream-drool sound: gggglaaagh~~~
12. What are your five least favorite things about your fandom? There are none. :0
13. Who are your five favorite characters? Janitor, Apu, Bee Man, visiting Green Aliens, Homer.
14. Who are your five least favorite characters? None.
15. What are your five favorite pairings? Homer/Marge, Homer/drool-daydream, Janitor/machinery, Lisa/aggravation, Apu/unflappableManners
16. What are your five least favorite pairings? None.
17. Which character are you most like? Lisa! A lot like Lisa, actually. :0
18. What is your deep, dark fandom secret? I quote parts of this show in regular conversation, and that includes the infamous "D'OH!"

How much do I love that you've done The Simpsons. They do win at life, many times over. I could mainline Simpsons episodes for a good solid weekend (and have) and never once feel the urge to flick to something else.

What is your deep, dark fandom secret? I quote parts of this show in regular conversation, and that includes the infamous "D'OH!"

Hee. There are people who don't do that?

I came late to the Simpsons (about 3-4 years in), which I then realized was a travesty! But gives me more episodes to watch as new-- thank you season-compilation DVDs!

I still sometimes miss it, partly because it's so close to the kids' bedtime and also because I invariably hate the show that comes afterward (except for Futurama and Arrested Development).

Hee. There are people who don't do that?
Maybe it's a question of degree. :0 I've got film/TV-show quotes rolling out all the time, and this one is richer and more bizarre than most: "I dreamed I was the belle of the OOOoooold West..."

Again, this is a show with so many characters to love that it's hard to choose from among them.

1. The first character I fell in love with: Apu. "Thank you for shopping at my QuikiMart-- I'll see you in Hell!"

Oh my gosh, I freaking love Apu, too, but I get the giggles these days whenever I go to the post office near my place. The man who runs it (it's actually a postal outlet in a QuikiMart) is so freaking Apu-like that it kills me. No matter what, he always says, "Thank you! Come again!" after every single transaction. I mean, seriously.

8. A pairing that I love: Marge/Homer (surprisingly romantic for animated characters).

Yes! Yes, yes, yes! I've always found them to have a surprising solid relationship, clearly filled with love and devotion. "Wow. There's not a man alive who could resist that... Well, see you tomorrow!" Or, "Margie, you came and you found me a turkey, on my vacation away from worky."

...and that Homer Simpson daydream-drool sound: gggglaaagh~~~

I have been looking for a spelling of that for years! Thank you!

I do this to an embarrassing degree. It's fine with normal people, but with those weirdos who've never watched the Simpsons, it's awkward.

Oh, I know! The question was more, "Are there any characters I don't love?" And I like Bart the least of them, but honestly-- the dreaded Okely-Dokely Ned Flanders has his place, the Dimestore-Kennedy Mayor Quimby does, even the dumbass coworkers of Homer's who hang out at the bar and seem to be in some non-sexual gay relationship that they're not even aware of. So varied and so weird, all of them with a unique purpose. ;)

No matter what, he always says, "Thank you! Come again!" after every single transaction. I mean, seriously.
Hahahaha! See? Apu IS real. :D

It's fine with normal people, but with those weirdos who've never watched the Simpsons, it's awkward.
I will typically do the voices along with the quotation, so talk about awkward. ;) Though I can crack my husband up every time doing Abe Simpson's voice, and family members beg for the Marge voice. :0
