Least Favorite character: Well Darken Rahl in the sense that I hate what he does to basically every other character, but he is entertaining. Also for what he made Kahlan be part of in the Series 1 finale. I can’t think of one that I just couldn’t stand watching.
5 Favorite ships (canon or non-canon): Richard/Kahlan and Cara/Leo, and then on the side of that kind of Annabelle/Flynn (young confessor and the young guy that ends up with the rune on his hand.) That’s really all the romantic ones I can think of.
Character I find most attractive: I would say Kahlan is the most attractive (rather than particularly finding anyone “most attractive”.)
Character I would marry: I suppose Richard.
Character I would be best friends with: Kahlan would be a great best friend (as is well established in the series.)
A random thought: It makes me very happy that Richard and Kahlan get to be together in every sense, and that it’s confirmed canonically rather than just being able to deduce it.
An unpopular opinion: Erm, I dunno, maybe that I really like Cara and Leo together? I don’t really know any opinions that are unpopular.
My canon OTP: Richard/Kahlan
Non-canon OTP: N/A
Most badass character: It’s a very close call between Kahlan and Cara, but I think Kahlan might just win.
Pairing I am not a fan of: Kahlan/Cara is quite popular but I don’t ship it.
Character I feel the writers screwed up (in one way or another): Well I guess Leo! I know they needed to clear the way for Richard to become the Seeker again, but I hated that Leo had to die. I have a head canon that they manage to bring his soul back using someone else’s body, similar to what was done with Dennee.
Favourite friendship: I rather liked how the Kahlan and Cara friendship developed, as Cara went on her journey of redemption.
I vastly approve of your choice of ship! Thank you!
002 | send me a ship and I will tell you:
when or if I started shipping it: On my first watch through of Classic Who I didn’t exactly ship them, but I didn’t not ship them, I thought they had an adorable relationship. And then on rewatching some episodes, the first Harry episode I rewatched was Ark in Space and I couldn’t stop focusing on the way he looked after Sarah, how he worried about her even when he was being starved of oxygen and how he used his medical knowledge to make sure she’d be okay. And I liked the way she reacted; seemingly annoyed at times, but always ultimately trusting and she liked that she had someone to rely on. From there it just grew, with watching their other episodes again, and the one time she mentions his name in the Sarah Jane Adventures always gets me. By the time I read Wolfsbane they truly were an OTP, they both exhibit their love so well in that novel, Harry’s is spelt out to us in so many words, and I think there is something really lovely about how whilst he is thinking about his worries that she’ll only ever see him like a brother, and he annoys her, she is desperately fighting for him, constantly thinking of him, feeling physically sick over finding his gravestone, and almost killing herself to find him.
my thoughts: (I’m never really sure what to put for this part.) Basically that we really need a novel now, where Harry comes home and they’re reunited, it would be a lovely way to (in some sense) bring both their stories to an end by reuniting them since we sadly can no longer have anything on screen/any audios with Sarah Jane in. I think such a story (if handled well) would be a really nice tribute to Lis and Ian, and with how novels work there would always be scope to go and write some earlier stuff or Sarah Jane Adventures stuff with no worries of the reunion story getting in the way.
What makes me happy about them: The way he calls her ‘old girl’ and ‘old thing’ - how ‘old girl’ used to be something he said to see young women’s nostrils flare, very soon after meeting her it became all hers - and whilst she knows it should annoy her, and sometimes acts that way (and well it did a bit to start with) she ends up loving it. That it wasn’t just down to state secrets that he didn’t tell her the details of missions until he was done, but because he was protecting her. That she kept letting him order in Italian even when they kept ending up with ridiculous food. And so much more.
What makes me sad about them: Of course that he goes missing for so long. That it breaks her heart to lose him, (and his of course) and even more so to not even know what happened to him. That she had to lock that almost entirely away because when she spoke of him, especially to people that knew him, it made her cry. But all the same I love that even though she didn’t expect him to come home, she still hoped he would, and she kept looking round for him in places he would be if he could, in the hope he’d be there. She held more hope and expectation than she realised.
Things done in fanfic that annoys me: I’ve not read that many Harry/Sarah fics. But it annoyed me that the ones I stumbled across on someone’s account were really rushed with no fineness and whilst the base ideas were wonderful the fics themselves were bad as if they took no care over creating the physical story.
Things I look for in fanfic: Characterisation, but I like to see that Sarah would be affectionate with him because she loves him and is with him.
My kinks: N/A
Who I’d be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other: No one really. Harry would never fall for anyone else, and Sarah I don’t see as the type that really falls in love (as I’ve put in a fic I’m doing) she more drifted into love with Harry. And whilst the Sarah Jane Adventures episode The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith was entertaining, and Peter was nice, sadly and horribly none of it was real. They were both manipulated, she was manipulated from the moment she met him and it just wasn’t real, and I would never want her to live something that wasn’t real.
My happily ever after for them: After the long, long, unrelenting fight, Harry makes it home, having walked for countless miles and surviving everything just to see her again. It was only her that kept him going after all. And they are just as in love and thankfully are just as happy together as always, and Harry never goes on a mission again, and they are wonderful parents to Luke and Sky and finally get to spend the rest of their lives together.
001: The Robin Hood BBC series 002: Jamie/Victoria 003: Jackie Tyler
Thank you! Beautiful choices thank you!
001 | Robin Hood BBC:
Favorite character: I don’t know how I can possible choose, I adore all the gang. But at the moment it would be either Will or Djaq as I’ve been writing for them a lot.
Least Favorite character: Probably Kate, oh how I hated Series 3.
5 Favorite ships (canon or non-canon): Will/Djaq, Robin/Marian, Much/Eve, Guy/Meg and there isn’t a 5th ship.
Character I find most attractive: Maybe Will
Character I would marry: Again Will, he’s so kind and respectful and loving, exactly what I’d want in a man.
Character I would be best friends with: Djaq would be wonderful to be friends with.
A random thought: I wish Series 3 hadn’t happened (or at least how it did.) Series 2 should have ended differently.
An unpopular opinion: I dunno if I really have one, I’m not sure what’s particularly unpopular, but maybe that Allan never loved Djaq (in the romantic sense) the feelings he pretended to confess were part of his image (and generally an effort to help rescue her.)
My canon OTP: Will/Djaq
Non-canon OTP: N/A
Most badass character: Probably Djaq actually.
Pairing I am not a fan of: Robin/Kate or Robin/Isabella
Character I feel the writers screwed up (in one way or another): Well as much as I like that Will and Djaq got to be happy, I wish they’d not left at the end of series 2. I think they majorly screwed up in writing them and Marian out, and in doing so wrote the two main cast women out, resulting in them desperately trying to write in new ones which were no where near as good.
Favourite friendship: I quite love Djaq and Much’s friendship (aside from the underlying friendship in the aforementioned OTP.) We don’t see as much of it as we should, but he really gets her and how to treat her as his friend, whilst some of the others tend to ignore her gender or in Allan’s case bring it up to say teasing things, Much (like Will) really understands that she doesn’t want her gender to be ignored, she just wants as much respect as a man. “Apart from being a girl, Djaq is one of the lads.”
002 | Jamie/Victoria
when or if I started shipping it: I don’t know when exactly I started shipping them as such. But I remember thinking it was so so lovely that the first time he sets eyes on her, the first thing he says is “She’s very beautiful.” and he battles so hard after that to rescue her, and really respected her from the start. I couldn’t resist the adorable cuddliness.
my thoughts: Essentially they have a beautiful relationship. They have this wonderful dynamic where they are both constantly looking after each other. They always seem equally eager to cuddle one another, and have this rather unique connection where because they are both from times before technology ever really existed, they consult each other, they support each other in their endeavors to understand, and they never judge each other on not getting something but rather help each other with it. (About the helicopter they’re in - Doctor: “A whirlybird?” Jamie to Victoria, despite being confused: “He says it’s a bird.”)
What makes me happy about them: (Just one thing or I’ll be here forever.) That they are from times 100 years apart, and yet they fit perfectly.
What makes me sad about them: That for a while they are separated when she decides to stay on earth for her own sanity, and he continues to travel (and we don’t have the footage of their goodbye! Or their meeting I don’t think.)
Things done in fanfic that annoys me: I don’t really go searching for fanfiction so haven’t seen a lot with them, I’ve never actually seen anything with them in that’s particularly shippy. I’d love to see more people write them.
Things I look for in fanfic: Good characterisation, and basically general adorableness and cuddliness.
My kinks: I don’t particularly have them.
Who I’d be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other: Really I’m just not keen on them not ending up together.
My happily ever after for them: (As I’ve written.) The Doctor brings Victoria to Jamie so she can persuade him to have his memories restored, he trusts her even when he can’t remember her other than the way his heart knows her, and once his memories are restored he decides to live with her in the time she’s begun to settle in.
003 | Jackie Tyler
How I feel about this character: Love her so much. She’s vastly underrated and I completely adore her.
All the people I ship romantically with this character: Pete Tyler.
My non-romantic OTP for this character: Perhaps Rose, I love their mother-daughter relationship. But I also love the friendship she developed with Mickey (and the one with the Doctor.)
My unpopular opinion about this character: I think people often have the wrong impression of her and what she’s like when it comes to men. There’s a lot more to what she says when she mentions men’s names than what they mean at face value, down to the way she says them and the context.
One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon: Well I wish she’d never had had to lose Pete (for a while), that was horrible for her. And that Rose hadn’t been missing for a year. But I understand why they were important to have happen. I think it would have been nice to see her get to go on a little trip in the TARDIS to a nice, peaceful place like an alien planet or something. Or maybe there could have been a lovely moment where she got to go back and see something to do with Pete, I don’t know.
My OTP: Jackie/Pete
My OT3: Non-Romantically I loved the dynamic of Jackie/Rose/Ten
