Comic books + Mememan!

1. This weekend (Well, semi-weekend. Friday-Monday counts as the weekend, right?) has been spent buried under comic books. I've now read the vast majority of Fraction's run of Hawkeye (FANTASTIC, Kate has smashed her way into my top ten characters list), the first issue of the new Black Canary (also fantastic, I keep shoving the art at P and going "loooooooook"), the first issue of Grayson (also also fantastic, Dick Grayson is a gift to mankind), the first issue of Midnighter (good, but not quite my sort of thing unfortunately) and the first ten issues of version 3 of the Teen Titans (great, and CASSIE IS MY QUEEN). We also rewatched the first two episodes of the Flash (I forgot how good they were!) and finished off the first season of Justice League Unlimited (FANTASTIC).

I can't remember when my life wasn't all superheros all the time, but I'm pretty sure that's a good thing.

2. In yet more superhero news, two people have wrote me alwaysagirl!Eddie (The Riddler) this week! They can be found here and here and are both absolutely fantastic. :D

3. In other other news, have a meme stolen from megan_moonlight! (I am waiting for various processes to complete at work, and am trying to pace myself so I don't end up with nothing to do with hours on end. So far, this is not going as well as it could):

1) Give me a show/fandom and I'll tell you:

- The first character I fell in love with:
- The character who is my ‘baby’:
- The character who I do not understand:
- The character that I think the show ruined:
- The most attractive male and female character:
- The character death that was the worst for me:
- The character that is the most like me:
- The character I think the writer(s) love:
- The character that I just want to be happy:
- My four favorite characters, past or present:
- My four least favorite characters, past or present:

Batman: TAS
- The first character I fell in love with: Bruce himself! the Batman: TAS version does a really good job of convincing you why you should root for him right away.
- The character who is my ‘baby’: HARLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEY~
- The character who I do not understand: Killer Croc is a DICK, and I am continually a bit puzzled by him
- The character that I think the show ruined: not ruined persay, as all the animated series characters ARE my default idea of the characters now, but a lot of them looked a lot less interesting after the redesign
- The most attractive male and female character: for male it's probably Bruce, for female Ivy
- The character death that was the worst for me: Not death, persay, but Harvey's transformation into Two-Face messed me up for a good while
- The character that is the most like me: I, er, don't really know! Babs or Selina, or so I like to think?
- The character I think the writer(s) love: they have a great fondness for Babs, but can sometimes be a bit dodgy about writing her
- The character that I just want to be happy: HARLEY
- My four favorite characters, past or present: Harley Quinn, Edward Nygma, Bruce Wayne, Selina Kyle
- My four least favorite characters, past or present: Roland Daggett, Lock-Up, Rupert Thorne, Killer Croc

Oh, damn, I totally forgot to send you the other two issues of Midnighter before leaving... I might be able to get them to you this weekend, maybe? Sorry /o\

ALSO YAY TO COMIC BOOKS IN GENERAL I love seeing you excited about them :D

That's alright! I have plenty more to be getting on with, so I'm sure I can manage. :D

AND THEY'RE SO MUCH FUN! I seriously can't believe that I wasn't that into superheroes before I met P. Now it's basically all superheroes all the time and I AM BETTER FOR IT. :D

ALSO: Because I've been meaning to ask, what would you recommend I read of comics!Flash? I've read a bit, and definitely want to read more, but I don't want to stumble into(/pay money for) something horrendous by mistake!

A weekend buried under comics sounds amazing. And yes, Dick Grayson is a gift to mankind. :)

And for the meme: Batman Beyond!
doreyg

It was really fun! It's nice how easy it is to get through a lot of them at once.

- The first character I fell in love with: Old!Bruce! Old!Bruce is just the BEST
- The character who is my ‘baby’: Terryyyyyyyy.
- The character who I do not understand: uh, Hm. A lot of his villains? I love Batman Beyond, but the villains are weak compared to the rest of the DCAU.
- The character that I think the show ruined: not ruined, persay, but I wish Dana had been given more to do.
- The most attractive male and female character: Terry and Dana, probably.
- The character death that was the worst for me: Terry's death in that Justice League Unlimited episode was heartbreaking.
- The character that is the most like me: uhhhhhhhh not sure. Max, maybe? Though I am not as cool
- The character I think the writer(s) love: Ten. Which is... Puzzling.
- The character that I just want to be happy: OLD!BRUCE
- My four favorite characters, past or present: Old!Bruce, Max, Inque, Terry
- My four least favorite characters, past or present: Mason, Shriek, Ten, Ten's dad

Your weekend sounds like it was lots of fun! :D It's really great to read.
I'm so behind all the comic books, I focus mainly on films and shows lately. Though I'm really curious about comic books about Midnighter? I don't know if you're familiar with him.

As for the meme, how about your favourite Star Trek production and also Whitechapel? :)

It really is! :D I love reading, and comic books make it so easy for me. Plus, fun superhero hijinks!

I don't know that much about Midnighter, I'm afraid, besides that he's one of the more prominent gay superheroes! There's a fairly new comic series out with him now, though. It's not quite my sort of thing, but it's been getting great reviews!

And Star Trek:TNG for the meme! :D (I only watched one series of Whitechapel a few years back, I'm afraid. I should catch up at some point!):

- The first character I fell in love with: Picard. Mainly because of Patrick Stewart!
- The character who is my ‘baby’: DATA
- The character who I do not understand: Uhhhhh depending on the episode poor Troi can sometimes be a little baffling in motivation.
- The character that I think the show ruined: WESLEY CRUSHER. I'm still frothing over that damn episode.
- The most attractive male and female character: Picard and Beverly!
- The character death that was the worst for me: The episode where Data's daughter died had me in actual hysterics, as I recall.
- The character that is the most like me: probably Geordi
- The character I think the writer(s) love: Data. And who can blame them?
- The character that I just want to be happy: ALL OF THEM
- My four favorite characters, past or present: Data, Picard, Geordi, Q
- My four least favorite characters, past or present: Wesley, Alexander, Pulaski, Lwaxana Troi

Unfortunately I haven't actually watched any Smallvile! Feel free to pick another fandom, though. :)

first ten issues of version 3 of the Teen Titans (great, and CASSIE IS MY QUEEN)
Oh, cool, which one is that--is it one of the New 52 Teen Titans series? (I think they've already managed to cancel and re-relaunch it. :P )

How about Guardians of the Galaxy for the meme?

doreyg
Aug. 12th, 2015 09:24 am (UTC)
It's the one pre-new 52, I think? Geoff Johns is the writer. (Aaaaaaand that does not surprise me. Oh new52. :P)

For the meme! (Movie version):

- The first character I fell in love with: Peter was great from his first few moments on screen, so!
- The character who is my ‘baby’: Uhhhhhh. Either Peter or Groot.
- The character who I do not understand: I... Don't think there actually is one. They could've gone into a bit more depth on Ronan's motivations, and actually kept him around after the end of the movie, but I still thoroughly enjoyed him.
- The character that I think the show ruined: NONE OF THEM. Honestly, I liked pretty much everything about it!
- The most attractive male and female character: Hmmmmmmmm Ronan and Gamora.
- The character death that was the worst for me: GROOT. I mean, it wasn't permanent but it still causes me to tear up a little when I watch it.
- The character that is the most like me: IIIIIIIIIIII do not know. Rhomann Dey, probably!
- The character I think the writer(s) love: Rocket.
- The character that I just want to be happy: Basically all of them? I'm glad Dey has his happy little family, though. For being a minor character I really want that guy to have a nice life.
- My four favorite characters, past or present: Groot, Rocket, Peter, Gamora
- My four least favorite characters, past or present: Nebula, Yondu, Korath, that orb guy...? (and I'd like to say that I don't actually dislike any of them! This was a really hard question. Man, I love Guardians of the Galaxy. ^^)

GRAYSONNNNNNNN. no but you have to read more of Grayson before you make the call on Midnighter because uhm those two being ridiculous just ruins my life in the best way. (Also Agent 1. Hnnnn.)

lol I never know which version of (reboot) Teen Titans is which anymore I just know that there's one that makes me violent & one I haven't gotten around to yet. >> UGH AND ISN'T BLACK CANARY FANTASTIC GODDAMNIT DINAHHHHHHH. <3____<3

for the meme: Justice League/JLU?

I AM REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO READING MORE GRAYSON. It is so, SO fun and really interesting and I like all the characters and yeaaaaaah. I'm really, really glad I picked it up!

This is the one pre-reboot (well, new 52 reboot)! It's written by Geoff Johns, and is quite good so far. Mainly because of Cassie and Tim, who are both absolute darlings. ^^ BUT, YES, BLACK CANARY IS THE BESSSSSSSST. Ah, man, I've always liked Dinah but THIS IS TAKING IT TO WHOLE NEW LEVELS! :DD

- The first character I fell in love with: Uhhhhh well I already loved Bruce, so...
- The character who is my ‘baby’: WALLY
- The character who I do not understand: as I said on Twitter, I come from around Nottingham (the place where the whole Robin Hood thing began) and I still don't fucking get Ollie. You're going to use a bow and arrow? Against a nuclear monster? OKAY.
- The character that I think the show ruined: errrrrr I'm pretty sure that it hasn't ruined anybody, so far, for me?
- The most attractive male and female character: John Stewart and Diana
- The character death that was the worst for me: not death, persay, but the end of Starcrossed when Shayera left was enough to make me extremely sad.
- The character that is the most like me: UM. Probably Wally?
- The character I think the writer(s) love: Bruce
- The character that I just want to be happy: ALL OF THEM. But especially Shayera I am invested in her happiness 1000%
- My four favorite characters, past or present: WALLY, Shayera, Diana, J'onn (that was really hard, I LOVE THEM ALL.)
- My four least favorite characters, past or present: Hades, Ollie, Hawk, Dove

Ahhhh that sounds really good then! I'm still on the fence about reboot!Cassie but I love her to DEATH in TT and Young Justice. :')

LOL I FEEL YOU SO HARD ON OLLIE but then I have to go and love Roy Harper with all my heart and soul. Whatever, I don't have to make sense if I don't want to :p

Ughhhhhhhh Shayera's last episodes destroyed me. I cried. so much. over a goddamn cartoon.
