It's that meme again....  
"Think of 5 fictional characters starting with your given letter and post their names and your comments on these characters in your LJ."

strangevisitor7  gave me the letter D:

1)Death (Discworld): Death is only really a peripheral character in the Discworld, but he's such a brilliant one that he's become the star as far as many people (myself included) are concerned. The anthropomorphic personification of death, Death has a unique perspective on the workings of the universe and I think it's that aspect that I love. And he was voiced by Christopher Lee in the cartoon and most recent TV adaptation ;-)

2)Amanda Darieux (Highlander the series/the Raven): Amanda is just a fabulous character, to watch and to write, and I'm really sorry that the Raven was axed before it really could find its feet. She's an Immortal thief, with wit and charm oozing from every pore, and the girl's got style. What's not to love?

3)Daniel Jackson (Stargate: SG1): He's an Egyptologist, I'm an Egyptologist. You do the math *grin*. I love Daniel because he's kind of my Gary-Stu, in that he has the same geekish enthusiasm for Ancient Egypt, and ancient languages in general. I loved it in the movie when he has that Eureka moment as he figures out the cartouche, and that brilliant moment when he corrects the previous translation. That line about Budge is a real punch the air moment for me. *stops before she starts dribbling and going on too long about Egyptological stuff that would bore the pants off everybody else*

4)Doyle (Angel the Series): Aw, Doyle. The half-human, half-demon, all noble and self-sacrificing Irishman. Bless his cotton socks. His death was a real shock to me, just as I'd got to like him, he sacrifices himself. *sniffle*

5)Draco Malfoy (Harry Potter): I really felt sorry for Draco by the end of the seven books. He starts off as this cocky bully, all swagger and he gets involved in the Death Eaters because he thinks it's cool, and then, just like his Uncle did, he realises he's in way over his head and he's not actually evil. *pats his blonde head*

Um, I think that's it. If you want to play, comment :)
I will call her George: Jackson readsstrangevisitor7 on September 8th, 2008 06:53 pm (UTC)
Love the list but I think you had it too easy. LOL.

Death - of course. I've never read the novels but your Methos/Death stuff has made me want to.

Much love for Daniel too! He was definitely my first big crush in fandom. I still love him but others have moved ahead.

Not commenting for a letter just commenting because I can.[g]
But, I don't want to be a pie,: deep thoughtidontlikegravy on September 9th, 2008 09:03 am (UTC)
There were plenty of names, but maybe too many, I also really wanted to put Darius, Deep Thought, and about a dozen others!
She went that-a-way...: Amanda laughsjinxed_wood on September 8th, 2008 07:57 pm (UTC)
Amanda! [Squishes]

I also liked Doyle and was sad to hear of the actor's death, as well as the manner of it.

Yeah, it was so sad.

Had to be Amanda, although I was torn between her and Darius, but I decided it would be too serious/depressing to put him and Doyle on the list. Also wanted Deep Thought on there, but it's only five characters.

If you want to play, then T. If not, then ignore this line *grin*.

P.S. I'm working again! By the giant Barclays building! For the council, which apparently means that people can harass me if I wear my ID badge in public..
