I got to have dinner with the lovely Hitch tonight (who I haven't seen in over a YEAR sadface!). We went to a local Chinese buffet and talked all about the upcoming wedding and where our lives have gone since we last saw each other. Sigh. I hate being a grown up; I want all my friends in close walking distance like in the dorms!
Futile wishes out of the way, here's the meme catch-up!
Day 14 - Favorite male character
Malcolm Reynolds from Firefly
. He's badass, he's smart, he's hot, and he wears an ensemble of tight pants and suspenders! What's not to love, honestly? I guess you could argue that his remarks about Inara being a whore are annoying but uh, she has sex for money, guys. By definition, that's what a whore is. And he's only frustrated because he knows she's BETTER than that. Even being a fan of him and knowing where he's coming from, I still want to smack him upside the head when he starts calling her a whore. "Uh, doofus? You know how you're all in love with her and shit? Well, saying this stuff ISN'T ENDEARING YOURSELF TO HER. Protip: Don't call your potential love interest a whore when she's really a culturally acceptable
companion. So stop it." *whacks him with rolled up newspaper*
Day 15 - Favorite female character
Donna Noble from Doctor Who
. She came on as a full-time companion exactly when we needed her. Ten had chased off the lovely Martha with all his whinging about Rose ("Rose would know what to do." WTF NO SHE WOULD NOT. WHAT THE HELL. SHUT UP.) and Donna stepped in to distract him with her awesomeness. Because she wasn't in love with him, she didn't put up with him talking down to her and would tell him off the instant he did it. ("Doctor, Time Lord, Yeah!" / "Donna, Human, No!" remains one of my all-time favorite scenes from the show.) She wasn't all sass though; the woman was filled to the brim with compassion and I remember people bitching about how often Donna cried. Which I kind of took offense too since I was usually crying along with her
. Doctor Who makes me cry, what can I say? Donna Noble has left the library; Donna Noble has been saved. ( Earlier Days )
