Memes!  
A couple memes here... some are slightly adapted from the original version of the meme because... well... I wanted to be at least a little different... lol

1. Give me a character from one of my fandoms, and I'll give you my top three crossover pairings for them.

2. Choose up to ten (or less!) actors/actresses and put their names in a comment. I’ll put my music player on shuffle and whatever song pops up, I’ll write a plot synopsis for a TV show and make a graphic for each actor/actress, writing a brief character description under each. (try not to have more than 3 people from the same show... just so there's more mixing and matching... lol)

3. Pick a fandom and I'll tell you my...
- 3 favorite relationships (this would include non-romantic relationships)
- 3 favorite characters
- 3 of my favorite moments
- 3 reasons I like/love that fandom

So... yeah... hopefully SOMETHING will spark my muses into writing because I HATE being in the mood to write and then just staring at the blank screen because nothing comes out of my head... lol

The O.C.

Favorite Relationships:
Ryan & Summer (Both romantic and as friends)
Sandy/Kirsten (They are my 'grownup' OTP of the show... lol...)
Ryan/Sadie (Out of Ryan's canon girlfriends, Sadie was probably my favorite...)

Favorite Characters:
Ryan (Was there any doubt?)
Summer
Alex

Favorite Moments:
"I'll unpack later..."
Ryan and Summer in her room in S2Ep2.
Ryan and Trey's Reunion (when Ryan and Sandy picked Trey up from prison)

Reasons I Like/Love The Fandom
It's full of amazing people who aren't just about the fandom, but care about each other in general.
It's the second fandom I ever really immersed myself into (More than a decade after the first one I did... lol) and really, truly felt like people in general (rather than just two or three people) genuinely liked ME and not just my fics. Which for someone with my self esteem and depression issues? Is kinda major.
I've gained so much confidence in my writing and myself in general because the fandom was so welcoming to me, and to other newbies. We don't judge newer fans for not having liked it all along, we just accept them unless they give us a reason not to.

I have to second Sadie, she was one of the better ones. She was the post put together ones and she left Ryan for his own good because she cared about him which was cool. and Sandy/Kirsten are just &Heart;

I don't recall the "I'll unpack later..." moment on top of my head, when is it?

and yesRyan and Trey were great at first

and it a great fandom

"I'll unpack later..." is the moment right after Kirsten announces that Ryan's going to stay with them now, and Ryan starts to follow Seth to the living room but pauses and glances back to say he'll unpack later while smiling...

Hi

I figure since i am posting relatively early i will go with #1 and ask about ryan. your writing is amazing and you have put him with so many amazing women and men (brooke,rory, chuck, jess etc)I wanted to see what was your absolute favorite
Maramissmara on June 3rd, 2012 06:07 pm (UTC)
Ryan/Brooke will always be my crossover OTP for Ryan. She could get him to relqax and have fun, she doesn't need constant saving, and she would let him lean on her emotionally if he needed to. And in reverse, Ryan wouldn't cheat on her, or treat her like she didn't matter, and he would respect her, all things most of her canon boyfriends didn't (Julian being the exception).

Ryan/Jess is probably my next favorite. Jess needs someone who'll call him on his obnoxiousness, and Ryan needs someone who'd kick ass for him. Plus I just loved writing the adoration Sophia Rose has for Jess, and how he actually adores her, too... and Lorelai's reaction to finding out Jess has a boyfriend will always be a favorite moment of mine.

The third is a bit harder to choose, but... Ryan/Claudia (Warehouse 13), from my Eureka!Ryan Verse, is probably my third favorite. I've only actually written their first meeting, but in it they flirted over an exchange of criminal records, which was just awesome... In my head, I know their whole story, and someday I will write more of it... let's just say there's a Vegas Wedding Chapel at some point, and protective Warehouse Team... lol

Hi
I wanted to wait to see if someone would post again before I asked another question but I can not wait. I decided to go with question 3. I would love it if you talked about the fandom of friday night lights or brothers & sisters (i couldnt pick lol). I thought that in both cases you set up scenarios for very strong non romantic (and perhaps romantic) relationships with characters either with ryan or with each other
Maramissmara on June 7th, 2012 04:59 pm (UTC)
Since you asked nicely and tried to give others a chance to ask, too, I answered both! I'm going strictly with the show for #3, so no crossover mentions, but I may do a variation on this and post crossover related ones at some point...

Friday Night Lights
Favorite Relationships:
Riggins/Tyra (Yeah, they ended early on, but... I love them)
Riggins and Coach (Them playing ping pong or whatever in the garage in the middle of the night? lol)
Riggins and Julie (When he protected her during the tornado... and when he took care of her when she was drunk, even though it got him in trouble...)

Favorite Characters:
Riggins (as if you couldn't tell from above.. lol... He's my favorite type of character because he has depth. He does some jerk things, like sleeping with his best friend's girl, but he's a good guy at heart)
Tami (She's an awesome mom to her own kids, but also to the team and the girls)
Tyra (Like Riggins, she's far from perfect, but... she's amazing. She's tough, but vulnerable, and she's a fighter)

Favorite Moments:
Riggins and Coach play Ping Pong in the Taylor garage in the middle of the night and Tami gets annoyed with them.
Riggins protects Julie at the story during the tornado.
In the pilot, when Street took the hit that left him paralyzed. It was the moment that built everything else in a way, and it was so heartbreaking.

Like/Love The Fandom:
I'm no really in the fandom, so I can't really complete this part. I can say that I've seen some awesome fanvids, fanart, and fanfic come out of it, though.

Brothers & Sisters
Favorite Relationships:
Justin and Kitty (She supported him, regardless of anything else. I loved all of their moments together)
Kevin/Scotty (One of my all time favorite couples. They went through their rough patches, but they loved eachother. And they were awesome when they adopted Olivia...)
Justin and his Newphews/Nieces (He was an awesome uncle to Sarah, Kitty, and Kevin's kids)

Favorite Characters:
Justin (was there any doubt?)
Kitty
Nora

Favorite Moments:
Family day while Justin was in Rehab. It was just so crazy!
Sarah's wedding in the finale. Everyone was finally happy.
The flashback to right after 9/11, when Justin and Kitty talked about it.

Like/Love The Fandom:
Again, I'm not really in the fandom. I love the show, but... I guess because I didn't start watching until the third season or so, I never got involved... there are some wonderful fanworks, though...

editted because I ALWAYS misspell Tami's name... lol

yay

Thank you so much I have been watching FNL online and the Parenthood and now I am going to watch Brothers&Sisters cause I really miss great shows that are not on right now because they are canceled or on summer hiatus. So this is my time to catch up.
