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.

Really? I mean, really people hate him?
They seem to! I can understand the issues with Gordon's obsession over killing Sam-- nobody likes that! But the character is intense, driven to do most of the right things and sometimes for the wrong reason, independent, and a fantastic reflection of where hunters might wind up if they lose too much of their humanity. Not to mention tenacious. How can you not love his use as a villain?

I agree. He's a bastard of a father, but he's an interesting character nonetheless, and very compelling.
No show without him, and I wish he'd stayed on longer. Not to monkey-wrench the boys' time together, but as a recurring character.

I mean, he was smoking hot, but is that ever really enough?
He was a cocky 2-dimensional ASS at first, and it was only his deep pain at Sam leaving him (in his mind) and his devotion to his family that started to shift how I saw that character. Once the pain under the layers of "jerk" became visible, I was hooked.

This icon is one of my favorites-- the toughness and the loneliness in it are a perfect summary of Dean.
