Job hunting is still going! Got screwed over by Gamestop a little bit, but Sketchers has been a lot nicer about stuff and I got a second interview with them today. I'll know for sure about that on Monday, so I'll try to update about that once I find out.
But really, all that stuff is pretty boring, so here's a meme thing. reply and i'll give you four fandoms. you then have to make an entry writing about your favorite character from each fandom, and why.katharon
gave me: Fullmetal Alchemist, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Supernatural, and Tales of Symphonia.Fullmetal Alchemist:
Definitely, definitely Roy Mustang. This is actually kind of funny since I went into it being pretty judgmental of him because he was so, so popular at the time. I generally am attracted to people who are associated with the element of fire for one reason or another, so I wanted to move away from my typical thing. Also, I thought that he was little more than a pretty face and a miniskirt joke at first. So when I saw the amount of depth that was put into him, far surpassing anything they did with Ed (this is my personal opinion, at least!), it kind of grabbed me. I have a thing for war stuff, so all of his Ishbal angst really struck me -- and I really enjoyed that he tried to act like this lazy colonel who never does his paperwork and chases skirts all the time when that's really just a huge cover for how determined he is. His whole promise with Hughes to aim for the top just gets me, and the way that he seeks out revenge - the fact that it pretty much drives him crazy when you get down to it - is a trait that I seem to latch onto in characters. For that reason, the manga only made me fall for him even more. I've been missing the hell out of him lately, writing-wise. Avatar: The Last Airbender:
It's funny that Alison asked this, since I've actually been watching bits and pieces of this show over again because two of my friends are going through it. But yes, that would be Sokka! For once it's not the protagonist, right? Actually, I love Aang too, but I really found myself drawn to Sokka for some reason. I mean, the obvious reason is that he's just downright amusing, but on a deeper level, I was interested by the fact that he had no ability to bend. Being the one "normal" in the group does bother him at times, but he works past that and really comes into his own by the end. Also, his sarcasm and silliness just always bring a smile to my face. Really, though? I love pretty much all the characters in A:TLA. That's what makes it such an awesome show. Supernatural:
SCREAM, why would you ask me this. It is most definitely Castiel, which is kind of odd since three seasons go by before he even shows up. Before that Sam was my favorite out of the two brothers, but I never attached to him quite as
much. I loved the brothers as a unit, but then Castiel showed up and it was like a light was raining down from the heavens, lololol. In all seriousness, I was pretty perplexed by him at first: who the hell was this angel guy? But he was endearing in his own way, not to mention downright badass
(this image does change some later, doesn't it?), and as I watched him become drawn to Dean and fall into a conflict of loyalties as a result, I was pretty much sold. I think the point where I really started to like him was when he has that heart-to-heart with Dean on the bench, though. :< Funny that an angel can act so human! And season 5 just took his character that much further, and so his development has just been so amazing to watch. He's a pretty unique character, I think, and I just adore him. Tales of Symphonia:
OH GOD, THIS TAKES ME BACK... way too far. I'm trying to remember who it was, but I guess I should just make a decision for now, since... yeah. LOL, I know at one point it was Zelos, actually, but looking back I find myself more drawn to Regal for some reason. I can't really say why, but he had these little moments where he stood out to me, and also... the whole fighting-with-feet thing was really neat. I would really have to replay because it's been years
, and then reevaluate. I do wonder if maybe it would end up being Lloyd now. All I can say for sure is that I hate Colette. Sorry to those who are fans, but god damn. 8| Unfortunately, I don't really see myself going back to this game since Tales of the Abyss surpassed it in every way for me. I DON'T NEED YOU ANYMORE, SYMPHONIA.
And that's all, folks! I'll have to go wander off and do something else now.
