Soooo...my life is boring, and I've pretty much been ignoring LJ lately since something weird's going on with it. Instead of exciting you with an entry about that, have a meme that I keep meaning to post.

Pick any (or several) character from a fandom of mine and I'll answer the following questions:

1) What is your opinion of this character? If you like, explain why you like him/her.

2) Is he/she important to the general plot?

3) Can you relate to this character at all? Does he/she grip you emotionally?

4) How much do you like the fandom that this character comes from?

5) Do you ship this character with any other character? Or, are you particularly intrigued by his/her relationship with any other character(s)? (romance-wise or platonic)

6) Is there anything about the character you would change?

7) If you were in the fandom with this character or knew this character in real life, how would you see yourself interacting with him/her?

8) Does this character make the cut as one of your all time favorites (if you like) or least favorites?

9) Would you hype up this character (if you like) or warn about this character (if you dislike) to someone new to fandom?

10) Is this character popular with the fanbase?


Also, the meme here is also sad and lonely (and I forgot all about it after I posted it nearly a month ago. um, oops?), so if you feel like contributing, go ahead!

I'm going to be totally random and say...Black Star from Soul Eater? :D :D :D

(Also, um, I left you a comment on that old meme back when you first posted it, but it looks like you may have missed it? XD;;)

1) What is your opinion of this character? If you like, explain why you like him/her.
Black Star isn't exactly my favorite character in the series (mostly because in the manga, I really wanted Liz or Patty to rescue Kid and just facepalmed when the artist went with Black Star instead, who um...alreaddy had a huge one-on-one battle with Mifune earlier in the series), but he's great comedy relief sometimes, and I like that he's ridiculously loyal to his friends and doesn't attack witch children because he's decent like that.

2) Is he/she important to the general plot?
Yes, I think so.

3) Can you relate to this character at all? Does he/she grip you emotionally?
Um. Not really. His interactions with others typically inspire me more than anything he does by himself. Although I do admire his "move on from the past" perspective.

4) How much do you like the fandom that this character comes from?
I haven't really looked into the fandom much, so I have no idea what it's like.

5) Do you ship this character with any other character? Or, are you particularly intrigued by his/her relationship with any other character(s)? (romance-wise or platonic)
Black Star/Tsubaki is completely canon! Won't deny that. I like his friendships with everyone else on the team, especially Maka surprisingly since they clash so much.

6) Is there anything about the character you would change?
Um, I'm not sure. Maybe growing some humility, but then he wouldn't be the Black Star we know and love (and sometimes hate).

7) If you were in the fandom with this character or knew this character in real life, how would you see yourself interacting with him/her?
I wouldn't know what to make of him! We wouldn't get along since I'm passive and he's...erm. Not passive.

8) Does this character make the cut as one of your all time favorites (if you like) or least favorites?
Neither. I don't love him, but I don't dislike him enough that he's my least favorite character. He falls somewhere in between.

9) Would you hype up this character (if you like) or warn about this character (if you dislike) to someone new to fandom?
"If you like crazy, egotistical characters who sometimes show their heart of gold, you'll probably like Black Star. The English dub sucks, though."

10) Is this character popular with the fanbase?
OH MY GOD, YES, this shouldn't even be debated.

(Also, I saw the comment, and I can't believe I forgot about it! D: I'll get around to it. Maka's a little hard for me to come up with songs for, at least not off the top of my head, but I'm sure there's something hiding in my playlist.)

Pick any (or several) character from a fandom of mine and I'll answer the following questions:

1) What is your opinion of this character? If you like, explain why you like him/her.
Anders is crazy, but that's why I like him. I don't know how to explain it. I have a thing for tortured, handsome male characters who change personalities every 3.5 seconds and aren't total tools or assholes with the ladies they love, and he fits the bill. That and he automatically became my favorite the instant he started ranting about how he had to get rid of his cat.

2) Is he/she important to the general plot?
Considering he [SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER] at the end, I would say so. We would've been playing a different game without him.

3) Can you relate to this character at all? Does he/she grip you emotionally?
Hrmm. Okay. I can't exactly relate to Anders, since he's a little...crazy, and while I'm a moody individual, I can only hope I don't get that off the deep end. XD On the other hand, I am emotionally gripped by him! His regrets get to me. That, and Anders reminds me so much of Cais that I immediately get defensive when people hate on him.

4) How much do you like the fandom that this character comes from?
Yes and no. I come for the lovely fanart! I stay away from fandom in general because I don't trust it.

5) Do you ship this character with any other character? Or, are you particularly intrigued by his/her relationship with any other character(s)? (romance-wise or platonic)
It's hard to say, since the main character is directly influenced by your decisions in the story, but I totally ship Hawke/Anders like something burning. The entire time I played the game and the two of them interacted with each other and then they kiiiiiissed, I was all:

True story!

6) Is there anything about the character you would change?
Um, nothing, I think. Would prefer avoiding that! He already had a drastic personality change during the transition from Awakening to DA2.

7) If you were in the fandom with this character or knew this character in real life, how would you see yourself interacting with him/her?
I can give him one of my cats and we'll automatically be friends. It was meant to be. Truly. I'm not sure how I would feel if one of his...um, "mood swings" happened while I was around, though. I would run. Very, very far. And I wouldn't return his phone calls for a week.

8) Does this character make the cut as one of your all time favorites (if you like) or least favorites?
Easily one of my favorite Dragon Age characters, next to Alistair.

9) Would you hype up this character (if you like) or warn about this character (if you dislike) to someone new to fandom?
I would totally hype him up, but warn them about the personality change between two narratives. It doesn't matter to me, since I preferred him in DA2, but it's worth noting.

10) Is this character popular with the fanbase?
Anders always seems to get an extreme reaction from the fans. Either they really, really love him or they really, really hate him because he's different than the Anders in Awakening.
