1. Leave a comment to this post!
2. I will give you a letter.
3. Post the names of five fictional characters whose names begin with that letter, and your thoughts on each. The characters can be from books, movies, or TV shows.

And for [livejournal.com profile] grav_ity:

First, just a quick thing, for anyone on my flist in the Highlander Fandom. I'm looking for a fic that I vaguely, vaguely remember reading some time ago (one of these days, I will actually have to start bookmarking these things, but howandever ...). I don't remember all that much of it, all I know is that it involved one scene of Methos jousting a helicopter. *smiles faintly* That stuck in my head, just a bit ...

Second, I've been kinda musing a little bit on my crossover habits. Not my reading ones (I'll read pretty much anything, provided I know both fandoms - though oddly I don't tend to be very fond of the massive-multiplayer-type crossovers), but more the ones I'd write/have in my head. Heh. And I've come to the conclusion that I have at least three fandoms (four, really, but one I haven't looked at in years) that I kinda tend to crossover with everything. Heh. And those are:

- Highlander - because Methos goes everywhere. There's some problems, at least for me, when crossing HL with magic/myth fandoms set on Earth, because of Methos' reaction to Ahriman (you'd think, if demons were common enough, a 5000 year old man who lived through most of the ages of legend would have encountered them before), but I can put that down to Methos, for whatever inscrutable reasons of his own, wanting Mac to figure it out on his own, and not wanting Joe or any of the younger immortals to know. Masquerades within masquerades. It just takes a little work, is all. But, generally, if the setting involved Earth at any point in its present/past, I can find a way to work HL/Methos into it, and have a lot of fun.

- Good Omens - because Aziraphale and Crowley go everywhere. *grins* And sometimes Adam, too. Or the Horsepersons. Again, slightly complicated by religion in some myth-heavy settings, but I've mostly managed to work out a basis for that (Hinduism is wonderful, by the by, as a source for concepts). And ... well, the angel and the demon just go everywhere, and, much like Methos, are a hell of a lot of fun to dump into settings with heavily black-and-white conflicts, because they make everything go all grey again. Heh.

- Addams Family - because everyone, everywhere, should spend at least some time with an Addams. Heh. This one has a slightly narrower range in time, depending on how immortal you think the Addamses are, but the Family seems to endure. The idea. It goes back, according to the movie, at least as far as Nero. And the Addams ... everything, at some point, should be seen through an Addams lens, just to remind yourself of the vague absurdity that hovers over, well, life. Heh. If the setting involves Earth, or any of the fey or twilight realms, the Addamses will get you there.

The fourth one, which I haven't touched in a while, was DC Comics. Simply because, given the panoply of canon alternate universes, mythologies, magics, technologies, time-travel, dimensional travel, reality-spanning entities and what have you, there is practically a canon means to cross characters from that multiverse with anything.

And I think, largely, I tend to think of those canons as the 'chameleon canons', because with a little work they'll fit in with most anything, which is why I tend to cross them with everything. Heh. If I've written multiple stories in a canon, chances are I've crossed it with at least one of them, or it is one of them (and I've crossed HL and AF with each other). I do other crossovers, too, any worlds that seem to fit, or potentially fit, but those four are the ones that seem to go everywhere. Heh.

Also, in something of a non-sequiter, but there was a train of thought, now I kinda want to see Methos crossed into Shannara, via The Word and the Void. *grins, shakes head*

Raffles & Bunny (Raffles the Amateur Cracksman)
Holmes & Watson (Sherlock Holmes)

These are all characters I've been reading/watching lately, and I've been noticing a kind of ... theme ... I think, in their interactions. More than just them, of course. There are lots of characters that fall into the same pattern. Not all of them are male, either, though I notice it does seem to be slightly more common among men, at least in fiction.

The pattern of pride and pity ... )
