2. Name of book/movie/TV show.
Lost Girl

3. Favorite “good” character. Why?
Tamsin! Before her it was Hale, but when Tamsin came on the show I feel hard and fast for her. I just loved her character a lot. The way she tried to act tough, but really was hiding an a very caring person underneath. Her years being a Valkyrie bounty hunter hardened her, but meeting Bo and Kenzi, and everyone else, let open her heart once more. She was such a fun character in the show and I’m upset at how her story ended, but while she was around I enjoyed her a lot.

4. Favourite “bad” character.
Bo’s mom, who’s name I have forgotten, but I liked how unapologetic she was about getting her shit down.

5. Favourite book/movie/episode.
The body swap episode I can’t remember the name of. It was in season 1 or 2 I think, it was amazing if only for Kris Holden-Reid’s portrayal of Kenzi.

6. On a scale of ZZZ to Haven’t Slept In Weeks ‘Cause Tumblr & FanFiction & Everything, how obsessed are you with this fandom?
Minor involvement. (As you’ll come to know I’m pretty chill in all fandoms, even the ones I’m super into. I just don’t have time for the Discourse anymore.)

7. Favourite Quote.
I can’t think of one for this show.

2. Name of book/movie/TV show.
X-Men Movies, because I’m not as well versed in the X-Men comics and I might cheat with the X-Men cartoons later :P.

3. Favorite “good” character. Why?
Rogue, even though she’s shafted a lot in the movies, she’s been my favourite for years and I will never let go. I do love the movies gave her a name even if they didn’t end up doing much else for her. I’ll always be upset at how Days of Future Past acted like it was Mystique’s powers that made the Sentinels what they were when it was clearly Rogue’s powers that they acted most like. The Rogue Cut of the film is only one worth watching, tee bee aitch. Anyway. I’ve always love Rogue because of her attitude, someone that again, is diminished in the movies, but her core personality of someone who is incredibly vulnerable and yet steady and a smart ass was something I always loved. The movies make her quieter and more introspective, which I loved just as much.

4. Favourite “bad” character.
Magneto. He’s the classic bad guy who makes a really good point even if his way of going about it seems over the top and dangerous. He unapologetic about who he is as a person and he’s constantly standing up for his fellow mutants, even if his methods are extreme, but considering how the world looks at mutants I don’t blame him.

5. Favourite book/movie/episode.
X-Men, but also Logan.

6. On a scale of ZZZ to Haven’t Slept In Weeks ‘Cause Tumblr & FanFiction & Everything, how obsessed are you with this fandom?
eh.

7. Favourite Quote.
Mystique’s to Nightcrawler in X2:

Nightcrawler: Then why not stay in disguise all the time? You know, look like everyone else.
Mystique: Because we shouldn’t have to.
X-Men: X2

2. Name of book/movie/TV show.
Killjoy – aka THE MOST DELIGHTFUL SCIFI YOU AREN’T WATCHING.

3. Favorite “good” character. Why?
Dutch. The show is hers in the best way. And because I’ve already spoken on how great she is I’m just going to say it again: She’s our anti-hero, our hero, our axis point to everything. She’s a survivor and fighter, she’s a trained killer but her kindness and compassion shine through. She’s tough but is allowed vulnerability and anger and love. She had a terrible and complicated past that she worked hard to break free from, and break away from the ideas that were placed upon her as to who she should be or would be. As the show develops you learn so much more about her past and history, and creates even more complex relationships with the characters we know and the ones we meet. And it’s all about how the relate to Dutch and her to them, and how much they love and depend on her. I’m so glad the show celebrates her.

4. Favourite “bad” character.
Tie between Khlyen and Delle Seyah, who in season one were the big bads in different ways and while both interesting antagonists, they were familiar in their roles. However as the show has gone on their characters have develop and expanded in such interesting ways. They’re still antagonists, but their motivations and actions become more in line with Dutch and boys. It’s so fun to watch them all play that line of never trusting each other and yet knowing they’re each other best shot for survival in some cases.

5. Favourite book/movie/episode.
“Kiss Kiss, Bye Bye” and “Enemy Khlyen” are definitely at the top of my list.

6. On a scale of ZZZ to Haven’t Slept In Weeks ‘Cause Tumblr & FanFiction & Everything, how obsessed are you with this fandom?
Fairly chilled out about it, because it’s a small fandom with very mild output.

2. Name of book/movie/TV show.
Teen Wolf

3. Favorite “good” character. Why?
Scott McCall! The most heroic boy to ever be! He’s such a good kid and he stays a consistently good kid. He loves his friends and family and respects his mother and elders, unless they’re out to kill him, of course. He’s loyal and sweet, and always tries to do his best and be his best for the people around him. He fights to protect people and always always tries to save even those you think are unsaveable. The best child!

4. Favourite “bad” character.
Uh, I guess Peter Hale.

5. Favourite book/movie/episode.
Season one finale is still great.

6. On a scale of ZZZ to Haven’t Slept In Weeks ‘Cause Tumblr & FanFiction & Everything, how obsessed are you with this fandom?
I backflipped out of that fandom so fast, definition of toxic and terrible. I never really was into the fic either, but I loved the characters.

bc we all need this

2. Name of book/movie/TV show.
Bleach, mostly anime though. I could not stick with Kubo for the whole manga run, I have a life to live.

3. Favorite “good” character. Why?
KISUKE URAHARA. I did not expect this when I first encountered the manga and show, after all he’s a bit of side character in the first arc, but as I continued I became completely enamoured by him. I find him to be so deliciously complex and yet so straight forward in his mercurial nature. He never hides he’s weird and silly, what he does hide is that he’s endlessly brilliant and kind, but the reason for that are layers of issues that a wonder to explore. Honestly one of my favourite characters ever.

4. Favourite “bad” character.
Uh. Coyote Stark because despite being part of Team Bad Guy he was just so over it.

5. Favourite book/movie/episode.
TURN BACK THE PENDULUM ARC. It’s by far the shortest arc/season on the anime (6 episodes out of 200+) but it explores the most interesting of dynamics within the show: the creation of the Vizards/Visoreds.

6. On a scale of ZZZ to Haven’t Slept In Weeks ‘Cause Tumblr & FanFiction & Everything, how obsessed are you with this fandom?
I was OBSESSED!!!!! I mainlined the anime in about 3 months, hitting it at just the right time as it it ended and I was so completely about it.

7. Favourite Quote.
It’s not so much a quote as it is a Moment, and it’s when the Vizards arrive during the Aizen Battle, but there’s not perfect vid of that moment on the internet, but also this is war pretty damn funny.

2. Name of book/movie/TV show.
Pirates of the Caribbean

3. Favorite “good” character. Why?
Elizabeth Swann. She’s the hero of the story in a very honest way. The series and opens and closes with her… Whatever POTC 4 tries to sell you. The core part of the story — the first three films — are completely about Elizabeth (and Will’s dual) journey into becoming the person that she had to hide from the world. She’s saves her romantic interest several times, makes terrible choices, makes great choices, saves the day, changes the tide (haha, pun!) of plot points and is the very core of the series.

4. Favourite “bad” character.
Barbossa. CAPTAIN Barbossa. He’s such a great villain in the first movie and continues the trend of never really being a friend, but sometimes an ally to the heroes.

5. Favourite book/movie/episode.
I love POTC: The Curse of the Black Pearl the most, but World’s End battle marriage and ending scenes DO IT FOR EMOTIONALLY.

6. On a scale of ZZZ to Haven’t Slept In Weeks ‘Cause Tumblr & FanFiction & Everything, how obsessed are you with this fandom?
I love it from afar. I wish it had more fic.

2. Name of book/movie/TV show.
Lost

3. Favorite “good” character. Why?
Juliet Burke. She’s easily one of the more complex and complicated characters on the show. Everything about her life on the island was about getting off it and getting back to a world she knew and loved, and she’d do almost anything to achieve that. Except, Juliet cares about people and that wins sometimes. Being on the island taught her to be harder and stronger, but it never diminished her kindness. If John Locke has the most tragic story — never getting back to the place he felt the most at home — Juliet has the second: staying in a place that has essentially trapped her because she wants to help others in the same place.

4. Favourite “bad” character.
Uh. Henry Gale Ben Linus. Look, he’s a terrible person and an incredibly interesting but he’s NO GOOD.

5. Favourite book/movie/episode.
Split between “Not in Portland” and “Jughead”.

during and post season 5 I LIVED AND BREATHED IT.
