Bleat, again.

Had from skjam:

Choose twelve characters from your fandoms, then answer the questions under the cut. Do not look at the questions beforehand.

(Some of you might want to do that now.)

My Choices are:

  1. Brak, Brak Presents The Brak Show Starring Brak
  2. Brian Griffin, Family Guy
  3. Dr Susan Calvin, the Asimov robot stories
  4. The Seventh Doctor, Doctor Who
  5. Dr Clayton Forrester, Mystery Science Theater 3000
  6. Herewiss “Dusty” Hearn’s-Son, Diane Duane’s Door series
  7. Luna Lovegood, the Harry Potter series
  8. Marvin the Martian, Warner Brothers cartoons
  9. Marvin the Paranoid Android, Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (TV version)
  10. Londo Mollari, Babylon 5
  11. The Mule, the Foundation trilogy
  12. Number Six, The Prisoner

  1. Who would make a better college professor, 6 or 11? What subjects would they teach?
    Oh, Dusty, without a doubt. He was Ravenclaw before Ravenclaw was invented.
  2. Do you think 4 is hot? How hot?
    Ah, no. He’s not my favorite Doctor for that reason. The 10th Doctor, we might be able to talk.
  3. 12 sends 8 on a mission. What is it, and does it succeed?
    It hardly matters what the mission is, since it’s Marvin the Martian going on the mission, and Marvin always loses. :)
  4. What is or would be 9’s favorite book?
    Final Exit.
  5. Would it be more likely for 2 to swear fealty to 6, or the other way around?
    Marginally more likely for Brian to swear to Dusty, but only in an alcoholic haze.
  6. For some reason, 5 is looking for a roommate. Should she share a studio apartment with 9 or with 10?
    I’d put Londo in with Clayton Forrester. They could scheme together.
  7. 2, 7 and 12 have dinner together. Where do they go, and what do they discuss?
    Brian, Luna and Number 6? Oh, brother. Brain takes them to a bar and gets hammered while Luna presses Number Six for details on the alleged Giant Purple Snorkelwacker sighting in The Village.
  8. 3 challenges 10 to a duel. What happens?
    Wow, I’m trying to imagine the circumstances it would take for Dr Calvin to try to kill Londo… unless he hurt a robot, in which case there is no duel, there is an industrial “accident”.
  9. If 1 stole 8’s most precious possession, how would he get it back?
    Easy. Distract Brak for three seconds, and he’s forgotten he even has it.
  10. Suggest a title for a story in which 7 and 12 both attain what they most desire.
    The Number of the Beast, in which Luna finds one of her hitherto-presumed imaginary critters in The Village, and Number Six rides it to freedom.
  11. What kind of plot device would you use if you wanted 4 and 1 to work together?
    Oh, easy. Brak goes on a moviemaking binge, making short subjects that are comprehensible only to Brak. Clay of course sees the potential in these…
  12. If 7 visited you for the weekend, how would you get along?
    Famously. I completely grok Luna. This fact scares the shit out of me.
  13. If you could command 3 to perform any one task or service for you, what would it be?
    I’ll take one general-purpose positronit robot, please.
  14. Does anyone on your friends list write or draw 11?
    God, I hope not.
  15. If 2 had to choose sides between 4 and 5, which would it be?
    I think Brian would go with The Doctor. Call it a hunch… not to mention the binging potential when you have all time and space at your fingertips.
  16. What might 10 shout while charging into battle?
  17. If you chose a song to represent 8, which song would you choose?
    Elton John’s “Rocket Man”
  18. 1,6 and 12 are having dim sum at a Chinese restaurant. There is only one scallion pancake left, and they all reach for it at the same time. Who gets to eat it?
    While Dusty tries to divert Brak’s attention, Number Six just takes it in a victory of speed and boldness over subtleness and creativity.
  19. What might be a good pick-up line for 2 to use on 10?
    Okay, you have to imagine the two of them roaring drunk (no great strain to do that): “No, really, I think… I think you’re a very attractive guy. In a very bad hair day sort of way. But that’s a good thing! It gives you ch… character. Yeah.” *thud!*
  20. What would 5 most likely be arrested for?
    Attempting to take over the world without a license.
  21. What is 6’s secret?
    He doesn’t really have any biggies anymore… although he does try to keep Lorn from finding out just how often Dusty thinks he’s a twit.
  22. If 11 and 9 were racing to a destination, who would get there first?
    The Mule. Marvin just doesn’t care–it’s as depressing there as here.
  23. 3 and 7 tell conflicting versions of events. Which is more reliable?
    Dr Calvin’s, becuase Luna probably got distracted by a pretty cloud and missed some details.
  24. 1 (Brak) and 9 (Marvin the Paranoid Android) reluctantly team up to save the world from the threat posed by 4’s (The Seventh Doctor’s) sinister secret organization. 11 (The Mule) volunteers to help them, but it is later discovered that 11 is actually a spy for 4. Meanwhile, 4 has kidnapped 12 (Number Six) in an attempt to force their surrender. Following the wise advice of 5 (Clayton Forrester), they seek out 3 (Susan Calvin), who gives them what they need to complete their quest. What title would you give this fic? Name three people on your friends list who might read it. Name one person who should write it.
    Title: “My Muse Is A *(&#%^%(^ing Sociopath”. Writer: Me… which should be enough to get several folks on my friendslist to at least give it a peek.
  25. If you had to walk home through a bad neighborhood late at night, would you feel safer in the company of 7 or 8?
    Luna. You’d have to be crazer than she is to seriously annoy her, and the only thing that Marvin’s ever hit was Daffy Duck.
