The awesome Page Adams tagged me on the Fantasy Circle of Five. Be sure to check out her five choices in a super multi-media blog!
1) List five fantasy characters you’d like to spend time with, and give a little info on why you chose them.
2) Pass it on!
I don’t think it must be *fantasy* characters – as in from the fantasy genre – but most of mine are, anyway. They’re also all men. Most are hot. I think this says something, though I’m not sure what. Hmmm. (hey, that kind of rhymed! Hot/what… never mind.)
The word fantasy conjures Tolkien and I’ve always loved Legolas, long before the movies. Why do I love Legolas? He’s immortal (I have an immortal fetish, I know), he’s hawt (trust me, even before Orlando Bloom I knew Legolas was smokin’ – he’s an elf and elves are gorgeous by definition!), he’s wicked with that bow (Hello! He shot down one of the nazgul’s winged steeds!) and he’s funny (I always cracked up at the scene where he walks on the snow while everyone was struggling in it. I was so glad to see that in the movie! And when he calls them all children in Fanghorn) and he’s sweet, I mean he willingly goes back later and hangs out with Gimli in the glittering caves, even though he’s an elf who isn’t fond of caves. However, an elf would have limited patience hanging out with me, so I think after a day he’d abandon me in the middle of Mirkwood and hope one of the spiders got me. Ah well, I’d have my memories.
Tolkien #2 – I will try to switch universes after this one. Why Eomer? Um, because he’s hawt? And I mean pre-movie. Again, Karl Urban was just a super lucky bonus. What makes Eomer hot? Because he’s borderline Norse (another fetish of mine) has long blonde hair, lots of armor and a sword. Plus, there’s that whole banished from the kingdom thing for awhile, and everyone loves the black sheep who has been unjustly labeled so and only wants to save his country. *swoon* And he’s nice to his sister. That’s always hot. And he rides that big horse and… *cough* anyway. He’d likely have far more patience with me than an elf would, since the Rohirrim are used to short, fat, slightly scruffy little women, but once he found out I was scared of horses I imagine he’d dump me off on his sister or on one of the other soldiers. I like Eowyn, and hey, the other soldiers probably also have armor and long hair, so all in all it would be a good day.
3. Dr. Who
I’d take any incarnation, though I admit Tom Baker (the guy with the scarf) or David Tennant (the cute one) would be my first choices. I’d prefer to go when Rose was not around, though Sarah Jane would be okay. Why hang out with Dr. Who? Um because he’s friggin’ cool! And sometimes he’s even good looking. Plus he has that nifty blue box that takes him through all of time and space, so he can go anywhere he wants to! However, since I can’t really run very far before I black out, he’d probably get a bit aggravated with me. Assuming he’s not in his Collin Baker regeneration I’ll assume he won’t say as much, but I think he’d get a sudden urgent message from Gallifrey and have to drop me off. Oh well. I’d have collected some souvenirs so it would be okay.
4. George Weasley
Another fantasy character. And before you point out the pervy old woman scenario, let me remind everyone that Harry Potter is, actually, MY age, having been born in 1980 and thus George Weasley is actually older than me. Ha! now that we have that out of the way, why George? Because he’s freaking hilarious for starters! Not to mention he can do all that snazzy magic stuff. And, well, okay, he’s hot. How do I know he’s hot? Because I just do. The Phelps kids who played them in the movies weren’t too bad, but I imagine the book version is even cuter. Sadly, after a couple of days, the fun of hanging out with a muggle would wear off, and they’d probably send me by floo powder to annoy someone else. Ah well. At least I’d have finally gotten to taste butterbeer. And hey, if they sent me to visit Snape that could always be fun. I love Snape.
5. Dave Lister
Yes, the last choice would be Lister from Red Dwarf. Why, you ask? Because I can’t help it, I always had a thing for him. Yes, I know he’s got bad manners, drinks too much, probably smells funny, and at one point spray paints his underwear to hide the hole in his jeans, but he has those hamster chubby cheeks and who can resist those? Not to mention, he’s really a pretty good guy. Plus, since his table manners are worse than a baboon, and his idea of a full day is lounging around a space ship discussing whose better looking, Betty or Wilma, AND he’s lost in deep space, light years away from earth, I think I’ve finally found a fictional character that wouldn’t abandon me. I have to be better company than Cat, after all.
And with that I am out of characters and lost in deep space surrounded by idiots, but it’s been a heck of a week so who am I to complain? Now, for tags!
