Late birthday wishes and some memes

First off, *sigh*, I've been really bad at keeping up with this. Why can't my flist just not have birthdays except on weekends? :P

Happy (belated) birthday, themorningstarr!!!

Okay, now to catch up on some memes:

List five fictional people -- from television, movies, books, whatever -- that you had a crush on as a child (or early teens). Then post this on your LiveJournal so other people can know what a dork you've always been.

1. Gambit (The X-Men)
2. Jesse McKenna (Life Goes On)
3. Faramir (LOTR)
4. Remus Lupin (HP)
5. Fox Mulder (The X-Files)

And, a nifty meme created by buongiornodaisy:

Reply to this entry if you want me to tell you my impressions of you based on your user icons. Then post this on your journal so that I may see your impressions of me!

If you wanna "play" this one, say that specifically in your comment. If you just comment with something like, "OMG, I <333 Gambit, too. He is Teh Hawt!!1!!11!", I won't know that you want me to do this. ;)

ETA: I almost forgot, I wanted to post these quiz results I got a few days ago that I didn't have time to post then:


I am 32% loser. What about you? Click here to find out!

You seem more concerned with the visual aesthetic of your icons than displaying clever catchphrases. Your use of text is minimalistic--but you seem to have carefully selected icons that bear the best mix of lighting, colors, and other visual effects. I gather from this that your are artistic, with a good eye for the visual arts, and that you like a certain amount of verbal simplicity or straightforwardness. You obviously have special places in your heart for Tony, chocolate, and Jesus--though maybe not in exactly that order. ;)

Two things: which Gambit? Are you talking the X-Men animated TV series, or from a specific comic series?

Also, I'd like to play! Take a look and let me know.

Gambit was in the X-Men and Uncanny X-Men comic book series during the time that I read them faithfully--from 1994 to 2000 or so. He was also in the animated TV show--an adaptation of the comics. I liked him in both, but it was in the comic books that I really crushed on him.

Your icons: Your Ravenclawish tendancies are clear, as is your quirky sense of humor. Your use of cartoonish and stylized icons suggests a joyful, childlike side to your personality.

Ah, see, I loved whoever did Gambit's voice in the TV series. I didn't crush on him per se (he belonged to my friend Brittany), but his Cajun accent and how he called everyone "cher" and when he and Rogue finally got to kiss! So dreamy.

And I think you're pretty much spot on for the icons. Go you!

Oh, yes! I adore the Cajun accent. *melts*

And Gambit/Rogue was my X-Men OTP. My favorite single X-Men comic is X-Men #24, when Gambit and Rogue go on a date together, and they take a romantic carriage ride, and Gambit convinces her to let him figure out how to love her somehow, even though they can't touch each other. The UST is so thick in that scene you could cut it with a kinfe. It's beautiful, really. *melts again*

Is that the one where she's all, "Remy, my name is..." and he stops her? I know it was wonderfully sweet and all...but ARGH. I wanted to know!

Totally off-topic question here: Do you know if the comics have given Rogue a name yet? I know the movies named her Marie, and if that is her name, then okay, but if not, that irritates the HFIL out of me.

(And the fact that the movies paired Rogue up with ICEMAN--of all people!--rather than Gambit is another point against them. I'm honestly convinced that the writers just took character names, put them in a hat, and drew them out randomly to see who would do what. The same thing with their storylines.)

Yep, that's the one.

In all the comic book canon I've actually read, they never revealed her real name. However, I've been exploring X-Men fansites this evening, and it seems that her name has now been revealed, though there is conflicting information. One synposis of a particular comic says she tells Gambit her "Christian" name is Marian "like Robin Hood's girlfriend". But a stats page on the same website says that for a while she went by the alias Anna Raven (Raven is the surname of Mystique, who raised Rogue in the comic books), and later revealed that her real name was Anna-Marie (but she still has not revealed her real surname). So...perhaps her real name is Anna Marian _______, and she variously goes by "Anna", "Anna-Marie", "Marian" or "Marie". 'Twould make sense for a girl who has the kind of serious identity issues that Rogue does. ;) What amuses me is that before there was any hint at all as to what her real name was, I had, in what I'll call my mental fanfictions, named her "Marianne". I find it uncanny (pun intended) that my guess was so close.

Mmm...the movies. I liked the movies all right. They were good for what they were, but they were a far cry from comic book canon. There is a little bit of a basis for Iceman/Rogue in the comics, though, and I don't really mind it too much. But...yeah. It doesn't hold a candle to Gambit/Rogue. Personally, I am hoping that future X-movies will correct this deviation. It seems odd to me that they haven't used Gambit yet, as he was always one of the most popular X-Men among fans, as far as I could tell.

Well, your love of cats is very obvious. Also, as with buongiornodaisy, I can see evidence of your inclination toward the visual arts. I notice that there is a sense of physical action in most of them, perhaps because you have a bit of restlessness born of an active, creative mind.

Your icons show your love for two fandoms--SW and HP--and particularly your love for certain characters and relationships. I would guess that you are an imaginative person who prefers to keep the fantistic close by, and that you are a bit of a romantic. I recall a discussion I had with some friends about what draws me to certain shows/movies/books/fictional worlds, and I said that it wasn't as big a deal to me how wonderful and creative the sci-fi/fantasy aspects of the story are (though it's a bonus), but what really matters to me is that the story has characters I can care about, and relationships between them that intrigue me. Based on your icons, I would guess your feelings about fictional worlds may be similar. It's not the light sabres and alien races that draw you to SW, so much as, say, the complex love Luke feels for his father, or the reluctant love of Leia for Han--that sort of thing.

I was going to complain about your crush choices but then noticed you had stricken the "as a child" part. That's not fair!

Well, the only one that doesn't qualify would be Remus. All the rest were crushes I had before the age of 18.

Your icons mostly signify your interests--science, reading, art, Harry Potter, K8 and the Fellytones, etc. You use a lot of bright colors--perhaps this indicates your fiery redheaded temperment. ;) It's interesting to me how many of them obviously have a specific purpose: "gratuitous art post", "my tuppence 'orth", the sheep icon, the Colin icon. This suggests that you like a sense of unity to your posts/comments, since you prefer to have an appropriate icon for a particular kind of post/comment.
