If you're familiar with that 15 character meme (example questions from the original meme text include "One, nine, and fifteen are chosen by a prophecy to save the world from four. Do they succeed?" and "Under what circumstances might five and fourteen fall in love?"), we have a list of 15 characters from, uh, 13 different fandoms and you can give us questions. *smiles invitingly*

Last week I deleted 2000+ notifications from my LJ-related email account in a quiet little comment amnesty ceremony. If at any point during the past... half-year or so I told you I'd get back to you (and sounded reasonably sincere) and didn't? Pls feel free to remind me. Please. Chances are it just got buried under the rubble. There's also some meme stuff that will be taken care of as soon as we find it in us to stop talking about brothers for two minutes, Jesus Christ.

also even though i am pretty sure i will have no idea who the people you've picked out are: A. 7 and 13 stick up a grocery store! what do they take, apart from all the money? B. if 2, 8, and 12 were military men (or women,) what would their particular job descriptions be? and - to reuse a question i asked someone else - C. 3 and 4 are on the same flight, but it ends up grounded. what do they do?

Oh god we know shit about the military, that answer will be so ttly ridic. Also, uh, you might know-- um. Maybe two people on our list? Possibly. /o\ But thank yoooou for the questions! <3

to be honest i was not thinking of "8 would be a technical sergeant, second class, for his language capabilities" so much as "8 would ttly jump out of planes! & 2 would be a spy."

s'okay i did a version of this earlier where they were all hockey players and it was GRAND.

Oh, that's entirely doable then! And haha, I'm pretty sure we know less about hockey than you know about *any* of our fandoms.

well once again i have NO IDEA which one of you i am talking to so i can't decide whether that is fair enough or not. in summary: if you are in singapore, i am pretty sure not knowing about hockey is permitted; if you are in germany, this is christian ehrhoff and he plays for vancouver but he used to play for krefeld so you should cheer for him and that is all you need to know.

Songfic! I always write fic that's inspired by songs and pretend it's not songfic 'cause I don't come right out and use the lyrics. *ahem* (iz in denial about how lame I am)

I think that's totally common; people get inspired by music *a lot* and then just don't tell anyone. Feel free to nominate a video if inspiration strikes you!

Because I always ask (the same) road-trip-related questions for this meme (I mean, tough job, but someone's gotta do it!): why did 4 and 5 go on a road trip? how did it turn out? and what did 9 have to do with this, anyway?

Date: 2010-04-09 08:29 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] leksa.livejournal.com
Oh, ALSO (... I was in statistics class and had a lot of time to think about these things?), are 7 & 11 brothers*? If not, what kind of brothers would they be? (Feel free to adjust gender on question and/or characters as is appropriate.) If yes, wait, what, where you trying to make a point by giving them these exact numbers?

*In relation to each other, I mean. Not as a general description.

Both of these prompts are absolutely amazing and transcendental, so thank you. (Er, when replacing the numbers with the actual characters. But even if not, A+ prompts.) Always taking one for the team, that [livejournal.com profile] leksa is!

Would it help if I told you that I keep all *your* comments in a creepy little shoebox and take them out every so often to paw at them inappropriately? And apropos of absolutely nothing, how would you feel about maybe giving me a lock of your hair?

You know I prefer kittens as a rule, but it seemed like perfect timing given our recent discussions (how's your brutal reign at Farmville going btw?).

(also, I don't really mean it about the 'point and laugh thing.' It's just that I had this post up before I logged on so I could see no one had chosen that option yet? I thought it might be sad and lonely. And I didn't quite understand the fandom AU option - apparently my brain is still quite crap this am.)

I keep all *your* comments in a creepy little shoebox

Oh, awesome! *waits patiently for you or cm to tell me who you'd cast as vamp!Millicent* And I'd send you a lock of my hair if I could. It's too long atm anyway.

Meme questions! Um, eight and one start up a band with fifteen, eleven and six. What are their roles, who's the biggest diva and which one is most likely to die in a bizarre gardening accident? Bonus question: who amongst the remaining 'numbers' in your list would make the most whorish, shameless band groupie?

oh my gosh. you just put nathan and peter in a BAND TOGETHER. clearly the world would end.

oh oh and lena olin! we sat down together and seriously thought about it and decided that lena olin would make a perfect vamp!millicent. did you know she was a vampire in queen of the damned?

OMG! [livejournal.com profile] jackvelvet and I have been talking about this idea 'cause we both love the idea of bb punk rock Peter so much. We've made up our own head!canon about Peter being in a band when he was in high school and everything. Hee. Head!canon FTW.

although i have to say - if nathan were in a band and peter wasn't?

peter <---number one whorish, shameless band groupie. but only for that one particular band member, okay? he's not a slut.

Unless Nathan owes someone a favour or loses a bet. /evil

(if a fic was ever to come out of this, I think I'd almost prefer the band!member Nathan/groupie!Peter one, but regarding the band I apparently selected them both to be in, what genre of music do they play? Are they a big eighties hair band? A boy band? Inquiring minds want to know!)

Lena Olin! Happy Lena Olin, i.e. before she learns of Max's death. At which point she puts on her vamp robes and goes hunting. Apparently she's really tall (hahaha Sammy). Nngh. *sits and waits for sequel* :-)

Bonus!


PS. Two things of note, courtesy of the co-journaller poking around on Wikipedia (as one does):

1) Both of the two 1987 movies about a "family" of attractive vampires who lure a young man and make him into a half-vampire before he is eventually "cured" (Near Dark (1987) and The Lost Boys (1987)) [...] <-- AP!Michael, in that year, would have looked exactly like Caleb. Nngh, nngh, etc.

2) 'David' (Kiefer Sutherland) is impaled on a pair of antlers and doesn't disintegrate like the other vampires. Despite what Max later says, he is not really dead. This was intended to be picked up in the sequel, "The Lost Girls", which was scripted but never made. <-- JUST SAYIN'.

and as for a number 3) *quietly puts this: here*

Ha, I keep forgetting Zoe Saldana was in that film! She looks very, very happy for Milo to be unhooking her bra. Or whatever it is he's doing there.

No, no, I loved the pic you chose! The scruffy bikie one. Okay, I'll try to imagine Caleb in a leather jacket. Hmmm. Not working. I can't picture him without those damn cowboy boots and that hat. :/

This was intended to be picked up in the sequel, "The Lost Girls", which was scripted but never made.

For real? I've never heard that! I wonder why they didn't make it? The Lost Boys was such a hit - you'd think they'd want to capitalise on it.

And Lena Olin! Nice choice. When you said that, I thought I maybe hadn't seen her in anything for ten years, and then I checked her imdb page and I really haven't - the last movie I saw her in was Chocolat. She's swedish? Why did I think she was French? Also, wow, is she almost six ft? Damn, that means she'll be 6'3" in a decent pair of heels! Hrm, that's less of a problem for Sammy and more of an issue for Michael. It's Mike she wants to punish/fuck/turn. Sam's just a pretty little pawn. You won't really be able to discern the height difference if Sam's just sprawled in her lap semi-conscious while she delicately sips from his neck. But when Michael eventually finds them and steps into her embrace it will look a bit bizarre. Maybe Michael *does* need Caleb's cowboy boots...

Edited in part to say: god, I'm so slow! I get what you were saying now about David not dying. That means Diana makes a come back, right? You have the best ideas, and *you guys* should write this!

He is ttly unhooking her bra. And it only took him like a minute, too. Aw, Zach. But look look, can't you just imagine Michael off to the side, about to join them for dirty OT3 funtimes? No? *ahem* Okay, maybe not. *slinks off*

And no yes, Caleb doesn't fit at all (he's such a puppy!), I just get excited whenever I'm reminded of him, because he was so devastatingly pretty and I want him to have sex with everyone ever thought Diana would appreciate it. But no, that original picture is perfect, you're right of course. Michael!

Lost Boys: The Tribe (2008) <--- was pretty bad, apparently. The trailer looks awfully 80's, considering.

Sam's just sprawled in her lap semi-conscious while she delicately sips from his neck

I love your brainnnnnn. *hugs it* Maybe Millicent can be barefoot so as to not make things look too ridic in their great showdown? Or we just handwave AP taller! We handwaved him younger, I feel we're entitled to a few minor adjustments along the way. And yesss, Diana will ttly come back! Millicent's... niece? Of sorts?

And cm's not allowed to write anything new until we're done editing the Simon fic, so don't you start. *puts foot down*

I watched the trailer, and I agree it looks dire but I'm totally dl'ing that movie tonight. The guy who plays the head vamp is Kiefer's cousin, apparently! He looks hot. It sold so well on DVD wikipedia says they're making another one too. Maybe we can quietly send them your recast wishlist?

Maybe Millicent can be barefoot

YES! I like it. She'll be all flowy layers and sandals/barefeet like Star was. Well, far more intimidating and awesome than Star, of course, but that wouldn't be hard (she was quite insipid in the film, wasn't she). Diana, OTOH, I imagine would dress exactly like Kiefer did in the movie. She rocks the black overcoat and the steel-capped boots in my head!

Okay, you know how much I fangirl your vid!AU Fever fic. And how Don't Forget Me is my Nathan theme song now. You should totally write that 'We fell through the ice' sequel' um. Sadly I can't contribute anything besides gushing over the fics that would come out of this challenge.

Well, you can't force the muse and I don't want A. to come after me for trying to get you to write more. I'll have to join you and A. in pestering missy for the Lost Boys sequel instead. You've done a fantastic job in my absence. Lena Olin! OMG YES!

Also, I just noticed looking at your icons above, I have unconsciously copied your hee! icon when I this one. I hope you don't mind. :o

So who remembers, forever ago, reading a Mike/Chester piece based on Nickel Creek's The Lighthouse's Tale? I always sort of felt that was house songfic was *supposed* to work. And also, how it really kinda doesn't. Ever.

However, substituting hot videos for fic? I'm in. Except for where I genuinely can't think of a single one right now. But whatever, right?
