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.
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.

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”.

365: 7 – Brooklyn 99

2. Name of book/movie/TV show.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine, or as I always write it out from sheer laziness Brooklyn 99.

3. Favorite “good” character. Why?
THIS IS HARD, because my two faves are Holt and Rosa and it’s so hard to pick between them, but also the reason they’re my faves are partially because they’re very alike? Not completely alike, they’re entirely different characters, but they share characteristics that I adore and it’s why I love scenes between them so much. They’re both stoics but that’s only their outer layer. Inside they both have a slightly and dark and mischievous sense of humor and care so deeply about the people in their lives. They’re very private so when they let you into their space and confidence you know it’s because they trust you. I find them to be so incredibly warm-hearted, but unlike the other characters in the show it’s harder to see at first and it resonates when they open up.

4. Favourite “bad” character.
DOUG “THE PONTIAC BANDIT” JUDY. Jake’s frenemy, nemesis, white whale, soulmate of crime? The Valjean to his Javert. He’s such a delightful recurring “bad” guy, because he’s so damn likable!

5. Favourite book/movie/episode.
I love the Halloween episodes a lot. But also “Skyfire Cycle” if only for this:

365: 3 – Lucifer

This one is gonna be short, because this lady has to sleep. I’d like to commit 500 words to each of these posts, but realistically some days I just won’t be able to do it because I’ll be tired as all hell. And on that note!

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

3. Favorite “good” character. Why?
Chloe Decker. Chloe grounds the shows, she’s part of the core of it, maybe the core of it, but she rarely gets given her dues. It’s always hard to play the straight man or woman, in this case, in a show. It’s harder to play the one that Doesn’t Know while everyone around you does and the show + Lauren German manages it, while still having fun, and at time one upping her fellow cast mates and characters at time. Chloe is a fully realised character who doesn’t need Lucifer around to make her who she is.

4. Favourite “bad” character. 
Mazikeen. Lucifer’s number one torturer and demon. Maze is an amazing look into a what happens when you take a character without morals but are loyal to death and beyond. When you give a character that doesn’t care about hurting people and give them people to protect. When you write a character that has, in canon, no soul, but they have heart. She’s also hilarious.

5. Favourite book/movie/episode.
Season has some GEMS. I love “My Little Monkey” and “Homewrecker”. In season 1 it has to be “A Priest Walks into a Bar”.

6. On a scale of ZZZ to Haven’t Slept In Weeks ‘Cause Tumblr & FanFiction & Everything, how obsessed are you with this fandom?
Fairly, but it’s a pretty quite fandom. Just how I like it tbh.

2. Favourite “good” character. 
Everyone on the show, with the exception of Ed and Jet, are pretty morally grey. They’re not bad people, but sometimes they do bad things. The reasons for this varies. Faye Valentine is probably my favourite though. I love Faye. She fits into the tropes of the femme fatale with a hidden heart of gold. Faye is incredibly complicated and layered. Her history is great and how she deals with the world she’s thrown into is harsh and she’s not ready for it. Watching her grow and then commit to the story of who she becomes is incredibly intriguing to watch and watching her fall into the Bebop crew and both hate that they’re the only home she has now and love that they’re the only home she has now.

Ed comes as a close second. I love Ed so much and the story they have. They’re such a pure character in search of who they are and their place in the world, very similarly to Faye. I also love Ed’s mind.

3. Favourite “bad” character.
Hmm, probably Vicious. He’s such an asshole, but he’s so good about it. He’s never really redeemed and his backstory is never used to make him more likable. It shows that he was a complicated man and he thought nobody understood him but his woman (SHAFT!) and his best friend, but the joke was on him. They didn’t understand him either, or more to the point, they understood him too well and knew he’d never forgive them.

4. Favourite book/movie/episode.
I’d say Jupiter Jazz, Part 2. I love Gren and how he adds backstory and depth into Spike’s past, but how the episode itself is centered on him and Faye and how his story affects Faye’s feelings on the crew and Spike himself.

5. On a scale of ZZZ to Haven’t Slept In Weeks ‘Cause Tumblr & FanFiction & Everything, how obsessed are you with this fandom?
I never engaged with this fandom on a grand scale but I’ve written about it, reblogged it, and spent years continuing the story in my head.

6. Favorite Quote. (Optional. Only for the extra-professional fan-person.)
It’s actually  the end card from the last episode. It encapsulates the story and backstories of the characters, but also it just true about life.

You’re gonna carry that weight.
