I had fun doing the last one of these things so thanks to @rebelqueenofthediscovery for tagging me!
Rules: 10 fandoms, 10 characters, 10 tags. Start a new post and list your 10 favorite characters from your 10 favorite fandoms!
1. Steve Rogers (MCU)
I love him so much. From literally the moment skinny pre-serum Steve appears, full of more righteous indignation and willingess to fight than sense. I do think Endgame undermined what was otherwise an astounding multi movie character arc, but my love remains true. A man with Chris Evans’ bone structure and shoulder to hip ratio paired with sheer bloody mindedness and an overwhelming desire to do the right thing - what a combo.
2. Saitama (One Punch Man)
He’s got a head like an egg, is overpowered to the point of ridiculousness, loves a good discount or deal, and in the end really does just want to be a hero. He’s the monster other monsters fear, he’s disrespected by the public and other heroes, and he’s not very good at tests or listening. I love him.
3. Jaskier (The Witcher)
I can’t even begin to describe how much I adore him. He’s obnoxious, determined, savage as hell, and a homewrecker. He also sings some real bangers, has a good heart, and is a true and loyal friend. He isn’t scared of Geralt, doesn’t let him off the friendship hook, and he shit talks Yennefer (one of the most powerful mages) right to her face. His flirtations range from “so good I need a witcher bodyguard to protect me from a court full of cuckolded lords” to the classic “like a goose…guzzling” and if we don’t get more of him season two I’m going to be sorely disappointed. Yennefer may be able to harness chaos, but Jaskier is its true harbinger.
4. Diana Prince/Wonder Woman (DCEU)
I came out of her solo film ready to get a sword and some gladiator shoes and go absolutely feral. A goodhearted hero who actually cares about people, truly appreciates the beauty and wonders of the world, and is willing to do whatever it takes to defeat evil. She’s also gorgeous and can lift a tank. What’s not to like?
5. Han Solo (Star Wars)
He’s a dork who wishes he was smooth. He’s a sweetheart who wishes he was cold as ice. He’ll break every law, commit so many crimes, lie, swindle, cheat, and ultimately come through for the people he genuinely cares about. He and Chewbacca are an iconic duo and his romantic partners are bosses who get shiz done (Leia, Qira, and Lando). #MakeSolo2Happen
6. Aziraphale (Good Omens)
This one was tough because it was either Crowley or Aziraphale. In the end I went with Aziraphale because he lied straight to God’s not-face and then went on to form a history spanning friendship with a demon and still remained an angel. The angel deserves a round of applause.
7. Will Graham (Hannibal)
I could write a book on Hugh Dancy’s portrayal of Will Graham. But some of the major hits - loves dogs, is sweaty and stressed and tired, has complex relationships with murder and his psychiatrist, sassy with words, even sassier with the eyebrows. I think that he has one of the most complex, nuanced, and enthralling arcs of any character in television history.
8. Margo Hanson (The Magicians)
My high king! She’s bold, brash, funny, ruthless, loyal, and more. Her storylines made me laugh and cry. Summer Bishil deserved all the awards for her portrayal. I loved every minute of screen time she got and I respect her so much - whether she was soft and kind, cruel and hard assed, prickly and untouchable, or relatable and vulnerable.
9. Anne Elliot (Persuasion, Jane Austen)
The ultimate Austen heroine in my opinion. She’s intelligent, kind, reliable, practical, and full of regrets and wishes. Unlike the other Austen ladies she’s considered by many of the other characters to be past her prime, and yet her age and experiences make her romance all the more real and weighty.
10. Lucifer Morningstar (Lucifer)
My favorite devil! He’s delightful and fun and just scary enough to keep it interesting. Unashamedly and proudly not a human while being as flawed, insecure, and pained as a human can get. He brings so much flash, razzle dazzle, terrible flirting, and sex appeal to crime solving that I’m always impressed.
This was fun so I recommend it to anyone if you want something to take your mind off this entire year for a moment. I won’t be tagging anyone once again because I know no one and am unknowable in return.
Jane Austen protagonists when a man proposes to them
jane austen writing persuasion about a woman considered “aged” by society dreaming of a lost love coming back into her life and then it does when in austen’s life it never did and she wrote it and never showed anybody and it was only published after she died
Guess who convinced her aunt to bring the AC down. Me!
My mom is stuck in North Carolina with her new husband, and my siblings and I can’t go yet. We’re with our aunt, though, and today is horrible. It’s been so hot. Even with our faces being attached to the windows and freezers. (No, really)
A few minutes ago, my aunt and I brought down the AC from upstairs. We moved downstairs (where my other aunt used to live) and we didn’t bother to bring the AC down because it was spring. Now, though, we did.
The AC is still not cold enough yet (despite being on the highest setting), but I put that on it being a while since we last used it.
I can already see myself spending most my time on this couch (with the AC on top) like I did last summer.
i have come once again to say i would be Obliterated if I lived in an austen novel because I am resolutely Unable to give two fucks about decorum. If someone starts insulting me using 20 thousand different adjectives, bitch, I’ll just walk away. Can’t catch me getting insulted by a cunt I can’t even understand. Either shut up or get ready to throw hands if you mean it
You know how in Wreck It Ralph 2, all of the Disney princesses are gathered together? I want something like that but with all of Jane Austen’s heroines. Can I get that?
