So this is my Top 10 vote for AfterEllen's Hot 100 2012, but *dammit* this year they allow for voting once every day. As if it wasn't difficult enough already! But Lana, Amanda, Chely, Jaime, Joanne, and Lucy have still been voted for every day. Dina, Christina, Mercedes, and Tina have had to make room on different days for Viola Davis, Rachel Shelley, Claudia Black, Gina Torres, Jennifer Beals, Catherine Bell, Annabeth Gish, Angie Harmon, Stephanie Zimbalist, Mariska Hargitay, Natalie Lisinska, Elizabeth Mitchell, Anna Silk, Zoie Palmer..... and goodness, the list goes on and on and on.... I wanna make some kind of 'fa's Hot 100' actually... so much pretty going around.

11 TV Characters I Love More Than Anything - Really, I just wanted an excuse for another meme. And every once in a while I list my top 10 hotties, but I did that not too long ago, and then AfterElton had a thing about 'TV characters you wanna marry', so I thought about that, but I realized that really, most of my favourite TV characters I don't necessarily wanna marry, so 'love more than anything' in this case mostly refers to how much affection I feel for them, how much watching them be awesome makes me all warm and fuzzy, how sad it makes me when they're miserable (tho of course there's a huge overlap with hotties and favourite shows etc). It's crazy how much I love these characters. Pictures under the cut!

There are all these pic!spammy lists I wanna make, but I never get around to it... however, every year (or at least every other year) I try to make a pic!spam of my Top 10 Hottest Ladies. The limiting thing is that I already have a relatively solid Top 10 list, and there's rarely room for more than one or two new faces whenever I make it (compare 2005, 2006, 2009, and my votes for the AfterEllen Hot 100 in 2008, 2009, 2010), and because the last year has been very good to me in terms of new interesting ladies, I'll do it a little bit differently. So here goes!

[1] - List your top 10 celebrity crushes that have come into your life in the last year.
[2] - Put all of them IN ORDER of your lust for them. (10 to 1, 1 being your number one fixation)
[3] - Say which movie/show/thing it was that hooked you.
[4] - Supply photos for said people.

You know that meme that's going around, where you get 7 actors, and you have to put together a pitch for a TV show starring these people - description and short character bios? Well, I gave 7 of those to a friend, thinking I'd picked a good mix of actresses... and uhm, here are 5 of them. I HAZ A TYPE, NO??

Leave me a comment saying "Resistance is Futile."
I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can satisfy my curiosity
Update your journal with the answers to the questions
Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.

[livejournal.com profile] sakuracorr gave me these:

1. Sam, Helen, and Amanda - who do you marry, who do you shag, and who do you drop off a cliff?
Answer N/A due to BRAIN!FAIL. OMG! I can't drop Amanda off a cliff! I can't drop Helen off a cliff! I can't drop Sam off a cliff either! Waaaah! *shortcircuits* (The shagging one would totally be Helen, though. *guh*) The *pain*! The Pain is excruciating!

2. The network execs have given you the opportunity to completely control one episode of one show, which show and what do you do with the episode?
Sanctuary. Naturally. Now, I suck at case-fic, so I'd get someone to write it for me. But there would be some sort of exciting case where Will and Helen are stranded somewhere (let's make it a tropical island because I love sunshine and water and everyone will have to wear less clothing and let's make it small so that they can't really avoid each other) with a couple played by Teryl Rothery (as a more ditzy, less Fraiser character and she's some sort of cool not-obvious abnormal and Helen "forgets" to tell Will about it) and Claudia Black (as less Vala and more dry sarcastic humor and not because I don't love Vala, I do, but because it's cool to see them play different, too) and Helen has at one point or another been involved with both of them, and perhaps both of them together (it's not made clear but definitely implied), and it's not necessarily over yet. There will be lots of action and danger and excitement and some good Helen/Will 'we're *friends* and I trust you but I'm still superior to you and not entirely comfortable with you trying to shrink me' moments and some awkward 'stuck on an island with your ex' moments. At the end they're rescued by chopper, and Will tries to talk to Helen and she pretends not to hear him, because she's a wee bit embarrassed about the ex thing, because Teryl and Claudia (who, as it turns out, had the means to save themselves, they just had to solve the Case first) have threatened promised to come visit the Sanctuary at some point in the future.

Why I didn't chose the alternate storyline that righted that wrong at the end of 2x02 )

3. The world explodes into war and you can only live in a country that starts with a vowel, where do you live?

4. If there were a musical episode of your favourite show right now, what song would the MC sing?
Oy. Helen Magnus would sing All My Exes Live In England to the tune of George Strait's All My Exes Live In Texas.

5. What author would you really like more books from what now?
From what now? Laurie R. King, Martinelli series, please.

I don't fall for blondes. This is not a conscious choice, but rather something I realized several years ago when I first started making lists of my favourite ladies and realized that on any given list there was one, maybe two blondes top. Ever. Brunettes were in overwhelming majority, and the redheads were definitely more than their proportionate share. So inspired by [livejournal.com profile] fran___'s brunette list, here's my list of 'something different'.

I'm grabbing this one from [livejournal.com profile] fran___. I did it not too long ago, but I've switched (several times) since then.

The rules are:
01. Anyone who looks at this entry has to post this meme and their current wallpaper at their LiveJournal.
02. Explain in five sentences why you're using that wallpaper!
03. Don't change your wallpaper before doing this! The point is to see what you had on!

[click to enlarge]

1. Amanda Tapping is pretty! (I know I'm about 12 years behind all other lesbians to this realization.)
2. Amanda Tapping is holding lots of guns because hot women who kick ass is extra hot! (I am otherwise not pro-guns.)
3. Amanda Tapping holding a puppy is totally adorable!
4. I hate unnecessary graphics/texts/effects on my wallpapers, I just want my favourite pictures, which is why almost all my wallpapers are the same style and kinda boring.
5. Amanda Tapping is awesome!

I've spent pretty much all of my allocated fangirling hours (except for when the new pictures of Christina surfaced - gosh she's pretty!!) in the last few days on these two very pretty women, Angie Harmon and Linda Kozlowski (the former mainly due to Sharon Bowers's Night and Days series, which is one of the best fanfics I've ever read, and I re-read it a few times every year - there's no direct link, scroll down to L&O). And I kinda wanna ship them, but it's bloody hard. If anyone can come up with, you know, any plausible crossover ship, any way that any characters they've ever played could possible have run into each other, that'd be really awesome. (And it's not that I mind RPFS-ing them, but it kinda feels like giving up... characters are more fun!)

And in the meantime, I grabbed this meme from [livejournal.com profile] sakuracorr:

Ask me a fandom, and I will tell you:
+ Runner-up
+ Honorable mention(s)
+ Crack pairing(s)
+ Ship everyone else seems to like, but I don't

Comment to this post and I will give you 5 subjects/things I associate with you. Then post this in your LJ and elaborate on the subjects given.

(also, special offer, if there's anything else you'd like me to elaborate on, put that in the comments and I will update this post with it)

Here are 5 things [livejournal.com profile] wizened_cynic gave me to elaborate on:

1. Christina Cox!
Christina, Christina... Ah, Christina. How do I do this without it turning into a 2000 words photo essay? Christina is my True Love du Jour, my current crush and obsession, and overall really awesome lady. It all began with Ladycops about a year ago (and there is a longer-ass elaboration on this subject here) and since then there's been no looking back. Christina is a pretty great actress, who's done a lot of pretty great roles, and she seems like a cool, sarcastic, intelligent, thoughtful person, who I just happen to find incredibly sexy, and that makes her kinda rare, and kinda perfect for a crush, because the pretty ones aren't always great actresses, and they don't always choose projects I'm into, and vice versa, but Christina is just an 'all of the above' kinda lady, and I love her for it.

2. meatballs
Meatballs? It's because I'm Swedish, right? I don't mind meatballs, though, meatballs are pretty good. I will say that whatever it was they served at my Boston high school that was labeled 'Swedish Meatballs' is something I have never seen anywhere in Sweden. Huge gross chunks of meat in some sort of chunky tomato sauce, that tasted mostly of chili pepper and salt. No thank you. Proper meatballs are small and elegant, preferably homemade when you mix the mince meat with egg, onion, dried breadcrumbs and your choice of spices, rolled into tiny balls and then fried in butter until they're a lovely even golden brown. You then eat them with potatoes, plain brown sauce, and lingonberry jam. (and some heathens put ketchup on it as well. gross.)

3. Xena
I love Xena. It is, in my humble opinion, the best TV show ever made, ever. Now, I know it doesn't have the best actors, or the best scripts, or plots, or special effects, or anything like that. I know that. But over-all, looking at the show from the first season all the way until the last episode, it has the most solid messages of love, redemption, and humanity I've ever seen. It's nothing like those overly moralizing shows where some people always do the right thing, and if they don't it's because they're tragically mislead. Xena is about being human, having a dark side, wanting to do the wrong thing even if you realize that it's wrong, standing up for what you believe in, fighting your instincts when your heart and mind tell you different things, fighting your rage and jealousy and vindictiveness, not running away from but instead trusting in love. All this, and much much more, does it do while using a story-telling narrative full of kick-ass female warriors in skimpy clothing, gods, mythical creatures, action and adventure, and a massive dose of never ever taking itself too seriously. I love it above all other shows.

4. Ellen
Ellen came along at *just* the right point in my life. Now, I've never much differentiated between different kinds of crushes. I have crushes on actresses, TV characters, authors, books, RL people, and most of the time it's just a source of enjoyment that makes me feel good and be happy and have something exciting to daydream about. However, RL people are in the dangerous position of being able to hurt me in a way none of the others can, because they're all unattainable. Now, at the time, I had just come off a 2-year insane crush on a girl that I know (#5, anyone?) and I was emotionally spent because it was kinda painful towards the end, and so I threw myself headlong into Queen because that was so incredibly safe. It was *dudes*, for heaven's sake, and Freddie had been gone for 15 years, so it was as safe as was possible to find. So I did that for 6 months, until I came to my senses and realized that they were *dudes*, and then they started showing Ellen in the early afternoons right when I got home from work. And it was *perfect*. Funny, light-hearted, happy, gay, gorgeous girlfriend, plenty of material to keep me busy, everything I could have possibly wished for in a new crush at the time.

5. msn
I have a love/hate relationship with msn. Really, it's more hate than love, but since it's one of the first places I ever went online it's tied in with a lot of nostalgia. I was a faithful hotmail user for a long time (until I discovered gmail and promptly turned my back on hotmail for good). As an IM program it mostly annoys me, though, although I suspect that's why you associate it with me, but I haven't used it for years. Once I discovered Trillian and realized I could have all my IMs in one place, I haven't looked back.

eta: 6. Emily Procter from [livejournal.com profile] sakuracorr
I love Emily. I know the moment I fell for her, and it's when she tells (W)Horatio that she feels like a squirrel on too much caffeine in that season 1 episode of CSI: Miami where she accidentally inhales cocaine. Besides being lovely (and blonde. The blonde thing was a big hurdle for me at the time, I'd never fallen for a blonde before) she also had an adorable comedic side that Calleigh hadn't really showcased before then, and sadly hasn't since, but with that scene I knew it was there, and I fell hard. I'll always love Ainsley for being that adorable All. The. Time., but Calleigh was where I first fell for her, and she'll always be my main Emily love. And Emily herself seems to be just great, she does what she wants to, how she wants to, doesn't seem affected by any societal pressure to be or do anything in particular. She decorates houses, wears vintage dresses to award shows (or was that someone else? Me and clothes...), collects bugs, plays poker, runs triathlons, and appears to be a wonderful combination of intelligent and caring and excited about everything in life, and often gives off the impression that her mind is filled with pink cotton candy. What's not to love?
