Fifteen Characters Meme - Answers

Okay, I am definitely procrastinating. I could be beta reading, preparing for something major in my life (that may or may not happen, but I have high hopes for), reading, or cleaning. Instead, I'm answering your questions. Wish more had asked questions. Oh, well. Anyway... here's my 15:

1. Hank Booth (Bones - Booth's grandfather)
2. The 10th Doctor (Doctor Who - what, are you surprised? ;D)
3. Det. Kevin Ryan (Castle)
4. Charles "Trip" Tucker III (Star Trek: Enterprise)
5. Donna Noble (Doctor Who - again, surprised?)
6. Daisy Wick (Bones - one of the Squinterns)
7. Jadzia Dax (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine)
8. Eowyn (The Lord of the Rings)
9. The 8th Doctor (Doctor Who)
10. Jake Sisko (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine)
11. Capt. James "Jimmy" Deakins (Law & Order: Criminal Intent)
12. Alexis Castle (Castle - title character's utterly brilliant and awesome daughter)
13. Kes (Star Trek: Voyager)
14. Dr. Beverly Crusher (Star Trek: The Next Generation)
15 Dr. Temperance Brennan (the novels, not the Bones version)

Answers to ageless_aislynn:

1. 9, 10 and 11 are on a road trip. Who drives first, who picks out the snacks and who's in charge of the radio/music?

*BOL* Deakins (11) would drive first, and possibly insist on driving the whole way. Eight (9 - I know it sounds funny) and Jake (10) would argue slightly over the other two, but I think Jake would choose the snacks (he was a growing boy on DS9!) and Eight would select the music.

2. 1 and 5... friends, enemies or indifferent to each other?

Hank (1) and Donna (5) would be like grandfather and granddaughter. Utterly adore each other and bring out the best in each other. Ooh, I should write a fic someday! A Bones/DW crossover! :D

3. 4, 7, and 13 go to the movies. What sort of movie would they agree to see together?

Kes (13) would be open to any kind of movie since she's all about learning about new things. Jadzia (7) has an... interesting set of tastes, which might horrify the mostly innocent Kes. It might leave Trip (4) to select something that would be educational for Kes and exciting enough for Jadzia. Maybe... Captain America: The Winter Soldier. While Trip seems to have a wide range of tastes, I think he likes the occasional action flick, and I'm sure he'd enjoy movies based on comic book heroes.

4. Out of all of the characters, who would be most likely to secretly (or not-so-secretly ;) ) want a career in musical theater?

*giggles* Daisy Wick (6). Come on. If you've watched the Season 4 end episode with the alternate universe, where she got to be a potential front girl for a band, you'd know. I could totally see her lip-syncing to a wide range of music and liking the dramatic. Although Jadzia (7) would probably do well in it, too.

Answers to sykira:

1. 2, 4, 8, and 15 are on dancing with the stars, which celebrities do they dance with, assuming it's their choice (I've never seen Dancing with the Stars!) and who wins?!

Oh, lordy... I'm pretty sure that's not how it works... but I'll go with it. Dr. Brennan (15) would be resisting going on, but eventually choose a non-celebrity once Det. Andrew Ryan intervened on her behalf. If Jimmy Deakins (11) is around she might ask for him. (Jamey Sheridan, the actor who played him, was going to be a professional dancer until an injury changed his life.) Eowyn (8) would also resist, but I think she could be persuaded to dance with Antonio Bandaras. Trip (4) would select Jennifer Gray, and the dancing might send quite a few into hunting for fans. ;) And poor Ten (2)... who has to deal with all sorts of celebrities going for him. How he handles it might depend on who is his companion. Martha would try to help him as best she could, Rose... would not like all the attention he gets, but I think Donna would do the best job of helping him. In fact, she'd give him the idea for a partner since he is a Time Lord: Ginger Rodgers. He also helps Donna get dancing lessons with Fred Astaire AND Gene Kelly. *squees* And the result would be really hard to call, but I think Trip and Jennifer would win.

2. 1, 3, 9, 14 are trapped in an elevator, what happens next?! * bonus points if it's a shag or die story, lol!*

Sorry to disappoint, but no shag or die here. Kevin Ryan (3) would be calling Javier Esposito and Kate Beckett for help, Eight (9) would be using the Sonic to try to get the lift working again, Hank Booth (1) would be alternating between snapping at Eight's British terms in an American environment and flirting with Beverly Crusher (14), who's just trying to make sure he's not injured from the sudden halt. :D If there's no mobile connection, Ryan would use his Irish humor to help calm Hank.

Okay I HATE picking SOME, what if I miss all the Who characters durnit?!

3. ALL the characters are trapped on a planet for the rest of their lives, and have to repopulate the colony to survive…who is the first to get pregnant and who is the father?! Any unexpected couplings?! hee!

This gets interesting because there are more women than men.

First to get pregnant? Donna. Because Ten would be unwilling to lose her to Eight or anyone else, which he fears happening. He might have to do a lot of wooing, but his geeky nervousness would win Donna over. He is her best friend, is hopelessly in love with her, and is hoping for ginger babies. It doesn't hurt that it turns out that suit is hiding quite a few secrets.

After that, it gets interesting as there's some confusion as the others learn who the others are. If not for Eight honing in on Beverly Crusher (there's that ginger fixation again!), then Hank might've gone for her. Although Jadzia might consider Hank, and he'd love having an exciting gal.

The unexpected pairing is the one no one outside of this group would have called, the one that comes around due to needing something of the old life. Under any other circumstances it wouldn't happen, but here... Kevin Ryan and Alexis Castle would gravitate toward each other as much because neither felt comfortable with the other choices.

4. Which ones would you kiss, shag, marry, or kill, if you had to choose four of the 15??

Okay, this gets interesting since this list includes two characters I've had massive crushes on at some point. And a character I could see myself getting a crush on. Um... I'd kiss Eight, shag Ten, marry either Trip Tucker or Kevin Ryan (I'm torn there), and... I think I'd cliff Daisy Wick.

and because this meme needs smutting up a bit, 1, 5, 8, 9 and a bonus one of your choice play spin the bottle…how does THAT story end? ;)

Oh, dear... That makes the players Hank, Donna, Eowyn, Eight, and Ten (as my bonus). Ten would get aggravated when Donna spins the bottle and it hands on Eight, leading to one heck of an argument. Leaving Hank to flirt with Eowyn. *giggles*

Answers to cassikat:

1) 12 and 14 get locked in a closet/cupboard for an hour. Are they alive at the end of the hour, or has something...else happened? (In which case, are they en deshabille when the door's opened? ;D)

Alexis Castle (12) and Beverly Crusher (14) would be fast friends, becoming more like daughter and mother. Which means that Rick Castle has to deal with yet another ginger in his life. Thankfully he's already with Beckett, so he only has to worry about Alexis getting more ideas from another doctor. He already has enough trouble from the wit of Dr. Lanie Parish.

2) 6, 10, 11, and 15 stumble into - the infamous Blue Oyster Bar. Which one of them actually enjoys the experience, if any?

(eheh. Sorry if you missed that reference. I've been going back in time with Police Academy, trying to stay sane.)

Oh, lordy. Daisy (6) would be both horrified and fascinated, trying to think in the ways her idol would. Jake Sisko (10) and his height would be gaining attention, and might stick with Daisy. Deakins (11) would probably end up locating snitches to get information from for future cases, while Dr. Brennan (15) would alternate between watching the activities and calming the two youngins down. So... the person who might enjoy it would end up being Deakins, who may have practice avoiding unwanted attention. The people who DO get sent there as a hazing ritual would amuse all of them.

3) 1, 3, 5, 7. Mudwrestling. Who tries to drown whom in the mud, who's just having fun...and who wins?

The winner would be Jadzia Dax (7). It seems like her game, and she'd have fun. Poor Ryan (3) would be trying to calm Donna (5) down and help her make sure Hank (1) was okay.

4) 2 and 11 - the ever-popular sex-pollen exposure. Is it shaming, are they trying to kill each other before and after (and during?) or is this what they always wanted but were afraid to pursue?

Oh, sweetie... We're talking Ten and Deakins. I'm not going there, and neither are they. Ten would probably end up talking about Donna and Sarah Jane, Deakins about his wife... and they'd practically kill themselves to get back to their respective gals.

5) 12, 2 and 6 walk into a bar. 11, 7, and 9 are already there and well on their way to sloshed. Party or bar brawl?

*snickerfit* Ten (2) would have his hands full keeping Daisy (6) and Alexis (12) safe to begin with, but add a drunk Eight (9) and Jadzia (7)? Only Deakins (11) would know enough to keep the peace. Mostly from other bar patrons.



Well... that was interesting.

I give you an Eight icon! :D

Much humor and hilarity ensued! Yay! And you've almost tempted me to try it...but I have no time. :( *boo library hours not kindly conspiring with rl hours* If you feel like doing this again, I'll gladly throw more questions your way :D

*happy memories of Compicpalooza* :D

*hugs* Well, you can write this down and LATER do the meme. And if I DO do the meme again, I'm creating TWO lists with different characters. (Might do SOME crossover on them, just for fun.)

And you can always ask about ideas that come from this. :D

Need more Eight icons...and you need to spill more about Comicpalooza! :D

This is true. Very true. I just have to find some fandoms to really mix it up with ;D Drop me a line when/if you do the meme again, I'll be glad to add more questions :D And speaking of lists, is that lists of questions, or lists of characters? (Crossovers are always fun! :D)

Oh, dare I? It's such a temptation, and I'm so very bad at resisting temptation...yes please! Tell me about ideas that this inspired! :D

And I still have to spill about Austin Comic Com 2012 AND 2013... I need to get my photos into a place that's easier to post from. *groans* Yet another thing to add to the already massive To-Do list.

If I'd really wanted to mix it up, I could've added in some characters from old PBS shows I watched. But since I still think of those characters as kids (even though the actors can't be much more than a few years older than me now), so that might've gotten weird.

And when I say weird, I mean weirder than the Ryan/Alexis pairing I ended up with in response to one of sykira's questions. I mean, Kevin Ryan has been married since Season 4, was engaged for about a year before that, and dating the woman for over a year before that. (IIRC) I'm not sure how old the character is supposed to be, but I'm positive Alexis was no older than fifteen when "Castle" debuted, and it just finished Season 6. It'd take a lot of careful doing and thinking to make it believable, especially in light of what I just mentioned. I always found the Stabler/Benson ship a little worrisome for some overlapping reasons, so you can imagine my irritation with my imagination.

I stumbled onto the very idea because I kept nixing the idea of each with anyone else for various reasons. And sometime after posting one of my old rules about fanfiction popped into my head: "Any pairing is possible, and just because someone else hasn't written it doesn't mean someone else hasn't thought of it." So... I checked FF.N's Castle listings. There are 50 stories that list both Ryan and Alexis as major characters, and I'd say between half and 2/3rds at least PUSH TOWARD the pairing side. I'll admit that some of the stories were decent or had potential to be great, but far too many needed to run spellcheck. And locate a beta reader. What does it say about a "pairing" if the majority of the fics have atrocious spelling and formatting?

Hee, I LOVE this! And I love that you used a wide variety of characters, it made for some interesting answers and some fun reading! :D

I can definitely see Jake managing the snacks on the road trip (I love that Eight is 9 in this case, lol! ;) ) and I'm not very familiar with "Bones" but I love that I ended up giving Donna a grandfatherly match in the second one. :D

Oh my, Kes, Jadzia and Trip going to the movies, I LOVE that! :D And your logic sounds completely sound for each of them. :D I can also see Jadzia enjoying some musical theater (I really loved your later answer about her winning the mudwrestling, I can just TOTALLY see that for some reason, lol!)!

Again, this was a lot of fun to read! :D ♥♥♥

I think the point, near as I can tell, is to use a wide range to make it interesting and make you think outside the box. So thank you for sharing the meme. :D

Given how Jake started as a kid and grew to be taller than his dad, that was a natural answer. :P And the numbering had me cracking up. :) Oh, Hank Booth is my other fictional grandpa. Him and Wilf. :D

Jadzia would be a natural at musical theater, wouldn't she? And there was no way a woman like her wouldn't win. Although... if she got Donna mad, then all bets are off. :P

And now I have this meme to blame for even thinking of the pairing I started discussing with cassikat. I think I've found a strong contender for the FF.N winner for "shippers least likely to use spellcheck". :P

*SQUEEEE DS9!* And Beverly Crusher! I went to my first ever con because of Beverly Crusher, ah those were the days! I heartily approve of your characters choices ♥

And oh GOSH woman, I just…

"ALL the characters are trapped on a planet for the rest of their lives, and have to repopulate the colony to survive…who is the first to get pregnant and who is the father?! Any unexpected couplings?! hee!

This gets interesting because there are more women than men.

It doesn't hurt that it turns out that suit is hiding quite a few secrets."

*fans self*

That gives me ALLLL kinds of feels, and y'know when you ask a question and you know you desperately want to hear a certain answer, you just have no idea what form that answer would take? This hit ALL my buttons. Flawless ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

*drifts off to mentally fic it*

Really? Then you may enjoy one of the photos I'll post from Comic Con 2012. Once I get around to it... *groans* Anyway, yay! :D

I knew you'd like that one. Besides, it seemed right. I mean, think about it. There's the dreamy Mr. Darcy-esqe Eight, the handsome Southern gentleman Trip Tucker, the very dependable Jimmy Deakins, and the loyal Irish gentleman Kevin Ryan as an outside possinility for competition. (Hank would remind Donna of her granddad too much to be considered, and Jake is too young - read, not sufficiently mature - for her.) So... Ten would be motivated to pull the trigger on changing her mind about him being a "skinny streak of nothing". ;)

*drifts off to mentally fic it*

Is that a request...? Because I already have two MAAN fics in mind for you. Although... I'm getting ideas for Ten getting advice from the Human men on how to woo Donna. Even advice from some of the ladies. *gigglefit* Oh, imagine what Jadzia would say to him!!!! :D I might write this one after all... :DDDDD
