edit: political quiz, ganked from grifstar:

89% John Edwards
88% Hillary Clinton
87% Barack Obama
83% Dennis Kucinich
83% Chris Dodd
83% Bill Richardson
80% Mike Gravel
77% Joe Biden
40% Rudy Giuliani
32% John McCain
25% Mitt Romney
25% Tom Tancredo
23% Mike Huckabee
12% Fred Thompson
11% Ron Paul

2008 Presidential Candidate Matching Quiz

I dunno, this quiz has a lot of holes. Edwards is the candidate I support the most, but the things I disagree with him on the most would really bring that percentage down. And I might agree with the ideals, but the three top candidates' policies? I doubt I'm in 87-89% accordance with. I completely disagree with Kucinich, so I don't know why he's up there when Richardson and Dodd are nearing the bottom of the Dems. I respect Ron Paul a lot, but yeah, considering how he wants to roll back government, I'm not surprised by that result.

...Oh damn, I have to start that column in the student newspaper. Mrrrrrrrrgh. This weekend.

Okay, I was trying to think of one where we both know the fandom and I decided, what would be better than the fandom we met in? Therefore, my dear, WHR it is.

♥~
a regular decorated emergency.: House - Camerondarkenedsakura on January 8th, 2008 02:42 pm (UTC)
Ah, a trip down memory lane. XD

1. The first character I fell in love with: Oh, I bet it was Sakaki. There was always something a little endearing about him and his rookieness.
2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now: Doujima. I should've known better than to think she was a flat character, especially when almost everyone else...wasn't.
3. The character everyone else loves that I don't: ...Nagira, I guess this would be. Not to say that I don't like him, because WHR is another one of those all chars are pretty cool kind of thing, but his pimpness never got to me as much as it did to everyone else. Or Michael, 'cause again, couldn't get into his character either.
4. The character I love that everyone else hates: Is there someone that everyone else hates? I really don't have anything for this category. D: Unless the fandom doesn't care for Doujima or Karasuma...oh, wait.
5. The character I would shag anytime: Eh, I guess Sakaki. Don't hurt me, Amon fans? XD
6. The character I'd want to be like: Karasuma. I bet she wouldn't have a problem with getting work done...XD
7. The character I'd slap: Hm. Yeah, I dunno. Zaizen's the obvious answer, isn't he? I'd say Touko as well, but I feel like she's a different sort of case.
8. Favorite character: Karasuma, of course :D What's not to like about her?

9. Who are your five favorite characters? Karasuma, Sakaki, Doujima, Amon, Robin
10. Who are your five least favorite characters? Zaizen, that one creepy hunter whose name I can't recall, that other creepy hunter whose name I can't recall (8D), the girl from ep 4, Touko (...I sense a pattern here, oops)
11. Which character are you most like? ...Hm. I er uhhhh. Ha, I bet my classmates would say Karasuma. An eclectic mix of her down-to-earth-ness, Sakaki's...well, Sakakiness? XD, and Doujima's secrecy/having a deeper side, I'd say.
12. What is your deep, dark secret regarding this? I don't know if I have one? But haha, in 8th grade my classmates laughed at me a lot for being so into the series, I remember that.

13. A pairing that I love: Sakaki/Karasuma, just because I can. It just makes sense, to me. D:
14. A pairing that I despise: Michael/Robin. I don't care at all about Amon/Robin anyway, but Michael/Robin...can't put my finger on it. Maybe it's because most of the time, it attracted the worst writers and trolls, I dunno. Oh, Amon/Karasuma in that regard too. What was up with that. D:
15. What are your five favorite things about your fandom? Karasuma and Sakaki, kickass hunters in general, the whole minorities with powers - to eliminate or not? Is it right? - thing to ponder, the really good anime art, the fact that they didn't make a second season after all and left it as is.
16. What are your five least favorite things about your fandom? .....Well, a lot of the fandom? Funky pairings, the slash that had no basis, the lack of icons don't even say anything, how many people don't seem to appreciate the beauty of WHR and complain about its 'episodicness'.
bek: phantom rosebiases on January 8th, 2008 02:47 pm (UTC)
Ahaha, I love that you'd totally take Sakaki over Amon. He would have a lot less baggage, I'll give you that.

And Sakaki/Karasuma, oh I wish there had been more. I didn't get that vibe the first time I watched the series but then Riku was putting elements of it into her fic and I was all, "ZOMG THAT IS SO AWESOME" and my love for them kind of snowballed from there. They do have an amazing partnership and I like that their friendship is so comfortable and low-key, as opposed to the storm of angst that surrounds Amon and Robin.

Ah, this is making me want to watch it again! SADFACE.

And for your next fandom: ALIAS.
a regular decorated emergency.: Alias - Sydneydarkenedsakura on January 8th, 2008 03:02 pm (UTC)
What can I say? I love my angsty guys, but something about Amon just didn't grab me. Dunno. 8D;;;;;

I can't even remember how it started. Maybe because they're both my favorites and they're partners anyway, and then...stuff? Or because I was all "psh Sakaki/Doujima is ridiculous", and back then everyone was trying to square it so that everyone in WHR was all paired up nicely. It's funny how in retrospect, I love this series, but a lot of the popular elements just don't seem to appeal to me (any more, perhaps).

And here's for the stuff you won't get 'cause, well, get to season 5 damnit:

1. The first character I fell in love with: Sydney, of course. If you don't like her, you're going to have a tough time watching Alias and all. She had her problems, but I liked how she stuck through things.
2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now: Jack. I liked him, but I didn't realize how much I liked him until maybe season three, and then season five, and...and stuff. The guys that know s5, YOU KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT. S-so. And Rachel as well, because...she was boring, and then she got better.
3. The character everyone else loves that I don't: Sark. Sark, Sark, Sark. Why? I don't get it. I guess he's a pretty guy and all that, and his character's witty and everything, but...eh. I really don't get it.
4. The character I love that everyone else hates: ...Tom, season five. I don't get it. Maybe it's like my random CSI Keppler love, but I just really liked Tom and I know that not many people do.
5. The character I would shag anytime: Uhh, I don't think I really have one. :\ Yeah, I'm drawing a blank, unfortunately.
6. The character I'd want to be like: Uhhhhhh, I really don't know. 8D Weiss is cool? Nadia too? *still draws a blank*
7. The character I'd slap: What's her name...was it Katya? Irina's sister. This is self-explanatory. And Sloane. Stop...doing what you do! aldskgjkdg! So yeah. Oh wait. No. Lauren. I'd bitchslap her twice for good measure.
8. Favorite character: ...Hm. Jack and Irina. Jack because he's so awesome, and Irina because she's so complicated and layered.

9. Who are your five favorite characters? Jack, Irina, Nadia, Sydney (hey, look :O), Tom (hey I want to fit Rachel and Weiss in toooo - oh and Will was nice - )
10. Who are your five least favorite characters? Katya, Lauren, Sark, Alison, Sloane
11. Which character are you most like? Errr. I can be kinda go with the flow the way that Weiss is? Maybe? Sort of? Jaded like Tom, perhaps?
12. What is your deep, dark secret regarding this? I've got nothing again. 8D Started watching this in 5th grade, dropped it mid 3rd season, saw season 4, then finally got season 5 last year, and yeah. Crime, I know, but really. The writers were letting the middle drag.

13. A pairing that I love: Jack/Irina because what can you not like about these two together, really D: And I want to see some Tom/Rachel out there, sigh.
14. A pairing that I despise: Not really despise, but...Sark/Sydney, again with the fandom liking a random character too much and jamming him into a pairing thing. Vaughn/Lauren for obvious reasons.
15. What are your five favorite things about your fandom? How nothing's what it seems, how you can never be sure about almost any of the characters, how slick the action is, why hello all my awesome characters, how there are some happy endings for some people.
16. What are your five least favorite things about your fandom? T-t-the series finale and some of the resulting things about that...I mean, it was good, don't get me wrong, b-but ;_______;, damn bastards that won't stay dead or reformed, how the middle dragged on, how Nadia was off and on the show and really she was for a bit, some of the Rimbaldi stuff that didn't get tied up quite as well.
Kia: Allen and Rabi- fly highstarswing on January 8th, 2008 04:28 pm (UTC)
D.Gray-Man teeheehee 8D
a regular decorated emergency.: Linali - forever from my worlddarkenedsakura on January 8th, 2008 05:06 pm (UTC)
I completely didn't see this coming :P

XD

1. The first character I fell in love with: Allen :D He grabbed me from chapter one, and yeah, uh. Jailbait. Super awesome. Grows over time. So awkward sometimes that it's funny. Etc etc.
2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now: Cross. I mean, he never appears, terrorizes poor Allen, loads debts onto everyone, drinks a ton, womanizes, and so on and so forth, but…he’s a pretty cool guy, in the end. And his Innocence is just plain awesome.
3. The character everyone else loves that I don't: Kanda. I don’t…get it. I guess he fits the standard angsty bishounen role, but…he’s boring. He has no reason to be angsty that’s explored well enough in the series. And he’s sort of, yeah, he exists, and that’s about it for me.
4. The character I love that everyone else hates: Linali. I think it’s really a part of that Female Hating Syndrome or whatever the term is that’s common in fandoms, where the main female lead is just hated upon, for many possible reasons. I’m a fan of the “gets in the way of slash pairings/other psychological reasons” one, really. Because no matter how much people argue that she’s weak, she’s anything but. Even when out of commission, she’s been nothing but incredibly strong and brave.
5. The character I would shag anytime: Allen, even if he is sort of jailbait. D:
6. The character I'd want to be like: Er. Maybe Ravi, I guess, since easygoing’s the way to go? And hey, I’d like to be able to fly around on a big old hammer, too. HAMMERTIME. 8D
7. The character I'd slap: Kanda. Get over yourself, emo kid. Nah, in all seriousness, the Earl, because he’s a bit creepy and I hope I never see his bunny ears again. D:
8. Favorite character: Allen, because I really don’t have to explain this one :D :D :D

9. Who are your five favorite characters? Allen, Linali, Ravi, Cross, Miranda
10. Who are your five least favorite characters? The Earl, that evil level 3 akuma from the boat, Debit and Jasdero, Kanda
11. Which character are you most like? I bet at times I’m clumsier than Miranda. XD Uhm, hm. Maybe Linali, sort of? Except I use textbooks instead of a clipboard to bean people in the head 8D
12. What is your deep, dark secret regarding this? I don’t have a deep, dark secret about anything D: Yeah, this question's just waiting for me to say that yes, I secretly read Kanda/Allen in my free time or something. XD

13. A pairing that I love: Allen/Linali is my one and only D: One-sided Ravi/Linali can be sweet, though.
14. A pairing that I despise: Ahahaha. All of the random slash pairings. Allen/Kanda, wtf just because two characters absolutely hate and loathe and despise each other does not mean they will go home and fall into each other’s arms and…whatever they write. I don’t really get Tyki/anyone, and…so on and so forth.
15. What are your five favorite things about your fandom? How there are many really awesome and kind people, good fanworks, so many shiny characters, great manga art and continuity, awesome (but hellishly difficult to make) costumes
16. What are your five least favorite things about your fandom? The fandom wank, the overload of slash, how the series grinds to a halt for a few months, certain things in the current arc and things that have been hinted at/could possibly be – you guys know what I’m talking about ;_______;, those dgmanonmemes that let rude chickens cluck too much.
Kia: Allen/Rinali WTFstarswing on January 8th, 2008 07:48 pm (UTC)
Oh man, I hate those anonmemes. x.x Honestly, if you have something to say....

But amen to Allen/Linali ftw.
Alejandra (was here)that_september on January 8th, 2008 08:18 pm (UTC)
Yay, I love these memes!

I wasn't sure at first which TV show to throw at you, but finally I decided on...

Firefly!

Bet you thought I'd say SPN, didn't you? Mwahaha, I am full of surprises!

a regular decorated emergency.: Inara - :)darkenedsakura on January 9th, 2008 01:55 pm (UTC)
Actually, once you did the ellipses, I knew it wasn't SPN and was wavering between VM and Firefly. You're predictable. In a good way :D

1. The first character I fell in love with: Mal. Uhm, he kicked ass, he was cool on first sight...yeah, no, pretty much. Nothing to say. 8D
2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now: Until her first witty exchange with Mal, Inara. After that I knew she was a keeper. XD Eh, maybe Simon. I thought he'd be a bit more boring, but he turned out all right.
3. The character everyone else loves that I don't: River. Not that I hate her, but I don't love her. She's amazing, I'll grant you that, and Serenity made her 140% cooler to me, but I still don't quite love her.
4. The character I love that everyone else hates: Who hates anyone in Firefly, anyway? I dunno. Book needs more loving, maybe the fandom overlooks him. I dunno.
5. The character I would shag anytime: Ehhhhh, I have no idea with this one. No one, then 8D
6. The character I'd want to be like: Zoe. Now she is awesome.
7. The character I'd slap: Yo/Saf/Bridge. Crazy bitch. 8D
8. Favorite character: Inaraaaaaaa. And Mal. It's really close.

9. Who are your five favorite characters? Inara, Mal, Zoe, Book, Simon (and Wash, let's throw him up there)
10. Who are your five least favorite characters? That Russian torture dude, the bounty hunter in the last ep, Yo/Saf/Bridge, that guy in the ep with the brothel, still can't remember names...can we say the Alliance in general? No? D:
11. Which character are you most like? Oh, I'd love to say Zoe. Bet my tongue's worse than Inara's, though 8D
12. What is your deep, dark secret regarding this? Uhhhhhhh. I have nothing, again.

13. A pairing that I love: Mal/Inara. There's nothing to say.
14. A pairing that I despise: All the combinations of Mal/Jayne, Jayne/Simon, Mal/Simon...whatever else is out there. Just no. I don't despise it since I do read it, but I still don't get Mal/River. ;_;
15. What are your five favorite things about your fandom? The funny of the show in general, the characters, the premise of a Western in space with random Chinese elements, lol the unintelligible Chinese, did I mention the funny and the dialogue I don't think I mentioned it enough.
16. What are your five least favorite things about your fandom? Too much nonsensical slash, damn FOX how could you cancel the series it was brilliant...hm, I can't really think of much else. I don't exactly keep up with the fandom. 8D
Alejandra (was here): voldemort closethat_september on January 9th, 2008 08:48 pm (UTC)
Lol, I am NOT predictable!

I don't get Mal/River either! Even after the movie--wtf? Mal/Inara is so freaking obvious (and canon, hello) it's not even funny. And River never really was my favorite either. I like her but eh. *shrugs*

And NOW do Supernatural! Mwahahaha. :D

a regular decorated emergency.: Sam - :|darkenedsakura on January 11th, 2008 11:27 am (UTC)
^^

Just because it's canon doesn't mean fans write for it or like it. Logan/Max, for example ;_;

See? You -are- predictable. :D

1. The first character I fell in love with: Sam. I think. I mean, I don't really have to explain this one. XD
2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now: John. After the first half of season one I was all "grrrrrrr John-papa whyyyyy what are you doing to my boys" and then...awww John-papa. A-and then came season two and...uhm, yes, anyway.
3. The character everyone else loves that I don't: I can't really think of anyone 8D
4. The character I love that everyone else hates: Think I'll go with you on this one and pick Jo, because she has promise, but since she's a girl and all, bam not liked. Okay, maybe I'm generalizing, but really, female characters have it bad in fandom most of the time, wtf.
5. The character I would shag anytime: Sam, I guess? 8D
6. The character I'd want to be like: Uhhhhh. Sarah, actually, I suppose. Now she is kickass. Enough for Dean to say "Sam, marry that girl." :D
7. The character I'd slap: It's been so long, I can't remember...that vampire hunter? Can't remember much about him, but yes, that dude.
8. Favorite character: Sam :D Dean should fit somewhere around here, though.

9. Who are your five favorite characters? Sam, Dean, John, Sarah...and I guess Jo? I dunno, I like her and all, but I wouldn't call her a favorite.
10. Who are your five least favorite characters? The demon (that's a given, I suppose), vampire hunter dude, some random people of the ep, I guess, I really can't remember any more XD;;;;
11. Which character are you most like? Bet you I have Dean's wit. Or something.
12. What is your deep, dark secret regarding this? Hm. I've read Wincest? And then my brain died?

13. A pairing that I love: Sam/Sarah. IT SHOULD HAPPEN. Really. I love Taylor Cole and I want her to come back one ep someday D:
14. A pairing that I despise: Sam/Dean and any other versions of incest out there...yeah, let's leave it at that.
15. What are your five favorite things about your fandom? Amazing fic, amazing series in general and great development, good icons, The Dean Show, again the amazing fic
16. What are your five least favorite things about your fandom? The popularity of Wincest, lol the Mary Sues, Sam's hair in season two (whaaaat was that), why torture the boys so writers I know it's necessary to plot but really D: D: D:, ...and I have no idea what else. Still not especially involved in this fandom either. 8D

I should go comment to the meme in your journal, but I think all the series I know that you know have been taken. :\
Alejandra (was here): my boysthat_september on January 11th, 2008 09:33 pm (UTC)
Lolol,vampire hunter's name is GORDON. And yeah, he's an asshat. xD

Hahaha I always forget you're a Sam Girl. And you DO have Dean's wit.

(OMG I've read Wincest too! D: D: We're such traitors.)

Oh, and I've read J2 too. That tends to squick me because it's like...real people. And you're, you know. Making up stories about them, particularly stories where they're gay for each other. Lol, but anyway, I just read one and it was actually REALLY good and I enjoyed it. D: D: That's my deepest darkest secret regarding SPN, I think.

And lol, go ahead and comment. 'Cause no one's asked me about Firefly. ^^
a regular decorated emergency.: Veronica - musicdarkenedsakura on January 15th, 2008 02:16 pm (UTC)
Howwwwwww did I not notice this comment until now. FAIL. D:

Ahaha, yes, well. So it's been a while since I've watched SPN okay D:

Why yes, a Sam girl. XD Though it's more like you're Sam, since you tower over me and you have that :[ face sometimes, while I reply all Dean-like. Heh. :D :D

In my defense, I didn't know the fic was Wincest until I got to the end. Then whatever was good about it suddenly got not believable and I was all, eh. So. And...I'm not going to comment on RPS, really I'm not. Nor on you having read it. :D

I'm only...what, a week late by now? But I'll still drop by if you're willing to answer it XD
