4. Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.

(questions by [personal profile] pinikir)

1. Did you name your new laptop and if so what?

Not really, whatever I name it I call it Vaio anyway.

2. Give me a favourite quote from Due South?

There are many of them, but here is one.

[side of a building]
Fraser: Ray, do you think I expect too much from people?
Ray: Well, take our climbing up the side of this building, for example.
Fraser: Okay.
Ray: Is the building on fire?
Fraser: Uh, no.
Ray: Is there a helpless person trapped up on the roof?
Fraser: No.
Ray: Is there a hostage to rescue?
Fraser: Not that I’m aware of, no.
Ray: Then we’re climbing this building because?
Fraser: Oh, I see. Because I expect too much from people.
Ray: Exactly.

3. Are there any horror films that scare you?

Err... pretty much any horror movie scares hell out of me. I couldn't make it to the 10th minute of The Amityville Horror.

4. If you could only read one book for the next year which one would you read?
House without Guardians by Heinrich Böll (Haus ohne Hüter).

5. What fandoms have you tried but never been able to get into?

I tried Smallville but the main characters kept pissing me off with their stupidity so it fell off. And I was more like a lone fan, so there was no notion of a fandom for me.

Character Meme

Name 10 fictional characters that are your favorite and explain why.

1. Dante - Devil May Cry - Well, we can write a dissertation on the reasons why we love Dante, right, [personal profile] linarohn? To sum it up, Dante has everything I've ever looked for in a character.

2. Vergil - Devil May Cry - The same here. If there's anything Dante lacks, there's always Vergil. They are twins, they are opposites, who else do you need?

3/4. Benton Fraser - Due South - I've liked this character ever since the show came out. He's smart, well-read. He's honest (which is a rarety) and courageous. A virtue personified. Yeah, he has something naive about him, but that's what makes him absolutely adorable. He shares this position with Ray Vecchio. They emphasize each other's qualities when working in tandem.

5. Leon S. Kennedy - Resident Evil - I guess I have to repeat myself. Another man of strict moral values and principles. Dauntless and handsome) Almost flawless.

6. Chris Snow - The Moonlight Bay series by Dean Koontz - Very nice character, suffering from XP, a rare genetic disorder that damages the DNA if any part of the body is exposed to UV, and thus having to wander about the town at night, accompanied by his dog Orson, a genetically enhanced labrador (this dog made me consider getting myself the same breed in the future). Chris is the narrator of the story and his character is greatly developed.

7.Peter Parker - Spider-Man - Well, this was kinda stupid, but his costume was the first thing I thoroughly drew and painted years ago. I had several action toys, a spray can with liquid spiderweb (can you imagine this?) and lots of other stuff. Though I liked only the Peter they created in "The Amazing Spider-Man" comic book series/cartoons and loathed the one in the movies. Who was that emo-whiner?

8. Jack Sparrow - Pirates of the Caribbean - no comments.

9. Dean Winchester - Supernatural - Honestly, nothing but a pretty face here. I don't care about his character (does he have any?), preferences, relationships whatsoever. Just walk and talk, Dean, that'd be enough.

10. Hm, any female characters for a change? -( Can't come up with any. Claire Redfield, perhaps? Yeah, that would be it.
