Four Fandoms Meme!

I got tagged by tiptoe39, who stole this from speccygeekgrrl and now it's mine! I was given four fandoms, and I had to talk about my favorite character from each one, and why they're awesome. Comment if you want me to tag you too!



Fringe

For Fringe, I'm going to have to go with Olivia Dunham. There's so much about her character that I love - She's clearly very dedicated and good at her job. She takes time out for her family and has a good relationship with her sister and niece. Though her flashes of psychic power freak her out, she's not afraid to use them when she has to. She'll go the extra mile for those whom she loves (hell, in the pilot she got an electrode rammed into her brain so she could invade her lover's dreams!). She's not afraid to be vulnerable, while at the same time also not afraid to seek help for her vulnerability. Despite the extreme strangeness of her job and everything around her, Olivia seems like the most sane, well-balanced person, and you'd just love to have a cup of coffee with her.

Heroes

Heroes has the biggest cast of all my shows, barring Lost, and there's a lot of people in there that I like. I love Nathan for his deeply-buried good streak and love of control, I love Peter for his compassion and righteousness. I adore Monica for her willingness to dive into heroism, and I love Micah for being good through all the bad things that have happened in his life. But the one character that I love above all others, that I virtually adored every minute of screen presence regardless of any deficiencies in the plot, is Noah Bennet. During the first part of S1, he was portrayed as a possible danger to most of our protagonists, but even in his villainy, he was clever and took no bullshit.

Over the course of four seasons, Noah Bennet was our morally gray Man With A Plan, with a fascinating past that invited exploration. Nearly every move he made had a purpose behind it (unlike so many other characters that had an allergy to plans and purpose), and he had solid, believable reasons for everything he did. He loved his family with an intensity that sometimes hurt them, and Noah never gave up when the odds were against him. He may have retreated, but he never surrendered.

Supernatural

I gotta go with Dean. It's just that simple. I'm the eldest child in a two-child family, and though we don't have a family business of saving people and hunting things, I get where he's coming from on several different levels. He's a character with a lot of range, sometimes indulging his whims, othertimes bearing up under a crushing load of responsibility. He's not afraid to crack a joke to an angel or flip off Satan, and takes no shit from anyone. And sometimes he fails, showing he's not superhuman, but usually manages to put together the pieces somehow. He's funny, he's awesome, he's sometimes Batman, he's Dean Winchester.

---

Torchwood

You gotta love Captain Jack. How can you not love a guy who loves everyone and everything he comes in contact with? He'll flirt with anything that moves, and sleep with them too. Our twenty-first century morals amuse him, his fashion sense kicks ass, and the man is pretty, pretty, pretty. But, that's not all he is. He's dedicated to helping the Earth and keeping his team safe, usually by literally throwing himself in the line of fire. When he's with Ianto, you can see the relationship changing both of them for the better. And if you've seen Children of Earth, you know the lengths to which he will go to make the right decision, even if it'll break his own heart.

So Jack and Noah meet in a bar...
“They live in the sewers. You shouldn’t worry about, really. Most of the time the Weevils keep to themselves.”

Noah Bennet raised his left eyebrow half an inch, and didn’t take a drink of the beer Jack had poured for him.

“I’m sure they do. I just had to make sure they weren’t under my jurisdiction,” he said evenly.

Jack paused, nonplussed. “You deal with Weevils often?”

“Not Weevils. Other things people don’t believe in. What the public isn’t ready to know,” Noah explained, and watched Jack’s reaction.

Jack smiled widely, and Noah had a sudden memory of Claude grinning at him in a bar much like this during off-duty hours. He shifted surreptitiously, feeling the straps of his shoulder holster under his suit jacket. Jack, he assumed, was also armed. He could be carrying anything, up to and including a sword in that coat of his.

“This is when everything changes,” Jack said, nodding. He ducked his head a bit to get a better look at Noah’s face, and unselfconsciously shifted closer. Their knees were almost touching under the bar top, and when Jack put his own beer back down, the back of his hand touched Noah’s in a deliberately provocative gesture.

“You get a tip from the future?” Noah asked, keeping his voice very even. There were several patrons that were casting longing glances at Jack and shooting daggers at him for being the chosen one. The idea… was actually not an unpleasant one. Noah had been on the receiving end of seduction attempts for reasons both selfish and self-serving, to extract information or just to lure him into a dark alley for nefarious purposes. Jack’s very lightly veiled unspoken question was as natural as breathing. No ulterior motives here.

“I’m from the future,” Jack said pointedly, shifting so close he was practically off his seat. Another six inches and he’d be in Noah’s lap. And Noah had a sneaking suspicion Jack could keep answering every question posed to him while continuing his games.

“Who put you in charge of rounding up Weevils?” Noah asked. He put one hand on Jack’s wrist and twisted it away slightly. Jack just went with the pull, cocking his hip right into Noah’s side. Exasperated, Noah clamped down harder and shot him a warning glance.

“Who put you in charge of rounding up telepaths, firestarters, telekinetics, and teleporters?” Jack asked. His smile never faltered.

“Touché,” Noah allowed. Each knew more about the other’s operation than they were willing to admit. “There’s some indication of a major event coming up soon. Northeast coast.”

“Sounds about right,” Jack agreed. “Lots of activity been happening in that area. Could be worth a look. Maybe we’ll run into each other.”

Noah let go of Jack’s wrist as he turned away. A newcomer was standing in the doorway, impeccable in a dark suit, his face so determinedly neutral that he had to be covering a scowl.

“I believe your Weevils are migrating south. You should check Charlotte before they have an incident,” Noah added blandly, interrupting Jack’s interest in the dark-haired suit.

Jack turned back to him in surprise, and Noah noted the dull gleam of Jack’s gun as his coat flared dramatically.

“We’ll do that.” For a half a second, Noah was almost positive Jack was just going to leave, snapping his coat out behind him in a scene worthy of an action film. Instead he planted a brief but shamelessly hearty kiss right on Noah’s lips, with not the slightest hesitation for the crowd around them. Then he left, snapping his coat out behind him.

Noah watched him leave, “accidentally” spilled the beer Jack had bought him, and ordered two scotches on the rocks. Claude appeared on the vacated stool between one blink and the next, stealing one glass.

“You’re trying to make me jealous.”

Noah raised his right eyebrow an entire inch.

“Yeah, they’re going, and the Haitian’ll meet them in Charlotte. You figured they tried to drug you?”

“He expected me to know he tried.” Noah cracked a very private smile. “It probably goes against Jack’s grain to not be remembered.”

Oh Lord.

Oh, Lord.

My dearest Chat, you break me at every possible opportunity.

Not enough sultry saxophone music has been written in all of history to provide background music for this effortless piece of cool.

BRB reccing on twitter.

And Claude, *pffft*, why didn't I make that connection? Unf.

I LOVE YOU. You're a geeeeenius.

They're kind of magnificent. If I didn't respect Ianto so much, there might be porn betwixt them.
