Fandom meme, version B5. Because un_crayon_rouge's wish is my command.

1. The first character I first fell in love with:
God. It's been what, ten years? However, I had fond memories of Sinclair, and since he's only really there in S1, he must have struck a chord with me, even back then.

2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now:
Garibaldi. I never disliked him, but it took some growing up and re-watching the show on dvd to really appreciate how his character works, caught up between extremes, perfectionism and the fear of failing and losing control, all or nothing. This is something I can very much relate to now, and perhaps this is why I ended up liking him so much. (And then of course there's Sheridan, whom I've always liked, but at the same time am constantly surprised at liking, because he's not really the type of character I'm usually drawn to.)

3. The character everyone else loves that I don't:
Stephen. Again, I don't dislike him, not in the least, but for some reason he's not a character I connect with strongly.

4. The character I love that everyone else hates:
Byron is pretty much the only really hated character on B5, isn't he? Well, I can say that I don't hate him. I don't really like him, either, but I think the main problem is that his character was under-developed. Do people hate Zack? Because I'm kind of fond of him, too.

5. The character I used to love but don't any longer:
Ivanova. I distinctly remember loving her, but when I re-watched the show on dvd, I felt very indifferent about her. This is also one of the instances where - I think - I preferred the German dubbing voice.

6. The character I would shag anytime:
Who, little me? They're all so damn epic. Sinclair in S1, possibly. It's that voice. Or Lyta, because she's gorgeous, and I have a thing for red hair.

7. The character I'd want to be like:
'Want to be' is almost presumptuous, but I'd like to have a little of Delenn in my personality.

8. The character I'd slap:
No character as such, but pretty much all the ISN people on The Illusion of Truth.

9. A pairing that I love:
Delenn/Sheridan, to no one's surprise.

10. A pairing that I despise:
Couldn't say. There are so few couples on B5 in any case... I wasn't entirely happy with Garibaldi and Lise, Lise's personality specifically, but despise? Certainly not.

*blushes* I hope not, though. I mean, if my wishes *were* commands, we'd be knee deep in shit :-))

And now I'm afraid I'll have to unfriend you, because *gasp* you don't hate Byron?? Tell me you hate his hair, at least *shudder*

And even *I* would shag Lyta. Who wouldn't?

Yes. The hair is rather, er, hate-worthy. I have to admit I'm a little confused where Byron is concerned, because I *liked* (or remember liking) the whole telepath arc, and yes, Byron, too, msorry, when I first saw B5, and was surprised how little I cared for him when I re-watched it. Hence, confusion. Plus, I can't really bring myself to hate *any* B5 character.

I hear you on that. I guess I have nothing against Byron specifically, he's too wishy washy, though I could have done without the hair - and the singing, ugh, I just remembered the singing! But I like Lyta so much, it seems a shame that this big wuss should be the one for her, the one to bring out the kickass evilll S5 Lyta that I love. It seems - lame.

Gah. *Did* you have to remind me of the singing?! I'd mercifully forgotten.

What I liked, intellectually, was when the connection between him and Bester became clear in the end - and you saw that however much he opposes Bester, he's also very much like him - he's got the whole über-protective 'I know what's best' attitude, the fanaticism... I keep thinking, they should have emphasised that angle more.

Totally random - Robin Atkin Downes played some kind of monster in (*scratches head*) I think S1 (S2? early anyway) Buffy.
