[personal profile] sallymn asked: Is there a character in any of your fandoms do you think was criminally underused?

I’m not sure I would use the word criminally, but I certainly feel character’s are underused at times. The one that springs to mind right now is Dracula in The Historian. Given how important he is to the main characters in the book, and how much he dominates the events, his actual screen time is extremely limited. The most we see of him is in a document which recounts a meeting with him, and then he has one brief scene at the end, which ends very abruptly. I’m sure the author had a vision to why we see so little of him, but for me it doesn’t work. It makes him very distant, and less scary.

[profile] earthspirit asked; Favorite character from Penny Dreadful?

I’m not at all original, as it’s Vanessa Ives. Eva Green is amazing, though in truth I think the casting is pretty amazing over all. But Vanessa is such an interesting character. The anti-hero is rarer than the hero, but an anti-heroine is even rarer.

[personal profile] gryffindoridiot asked: What is your favorite book to film adaptation?

Persuasion with Ciaran Hinds and Amanda Root. It’s my favourite Jane Austen, and the version is better than any other adaptations of it, IMO. There are a few scenes in the book that doesn’t make it to the screen, but apart from that, i think it's perfect. I love the casting, the settings and the clothes. The photo is beautiful! For some reason I find watching it incredibly restful, so this is a movie I often rewatch when I am feeling stressed out and frazzled.

If anyone wants to ask about another question here is the original post.

I know, I have heaps of stuff to answer, and a f-list to read. But I can never resist a fandom meme. Gakked from here and there.

Ask me a question. It can be fandom-specific or general. Be as creative as you like.

I don’t really have the time for this right now, but I’ve noticed it popping up at my f-list, and couldn’t resist.

List the first five (or so) lines of your last 20 stories (or however many you have altogether. WIPs count). See if there are any patterns.

In order of newest first:

Well, I would say that most, as in seventeen fics, start of with a mention of the main character by name, and a short description of mood, action or looks. The Raven King’s Ball differs a little as it has an ensemble cast, and Born Anew as the main character’s name isn’t mentioned at once. Apart from those fics, two starts with dialogue, and one is written as a letter. I feel Professor Keller and Julaina and John starts of a bit awkwardly- the writing improves later on. I’m partial to the opening lines of Ghosts and Arabella’s Visit. :) But I’m usually pleased with my beginnings- it’s the endings which are my downfall!

It’s also obvious how hopelessly multi-fannish I am, as those twenty fics are in twelve fandoms.

I haven’t forgotten this meme, there has just been a few things in between. Here the first batch.

1.The character I least understand
2.Interactions I enjoyed the most
3.The character who scares me the most
4.The character who is most like me
5.Hottest looks character
6.One thing I dislike about my fave character
7.One thing I like about my hated character
8.A quote or scene that haunts me
9.A death that left me indifferent
10.A character I wish died but didn't I can, at this moment, only recall one fictional character i wished died. So no real purpose in answering this question.
11.My ship that never sailed
