Olivia Dunham, Fringe.

(if anyone needs convincing... watch Brown Betty, in season 2. Best. Episode. Ever.)

A very close second would be Teresa Lisbon (The Mentalist).

Book-wise... erm, does Alexia Tarabotti (Soulless, Changeless, Blameless) count? She's not really a detective, but she... investigates stuff. She's third, btw.

I don't know about "critical" bystander.... I'm definitely on the sidelines on this one but I stopped being actually critical a while back. It was too much pressure. These days I stick to my Golden Rule of Twilight:

I leave that seething mass of batshit-craziness well enough alone, and it does the same for me.

(also, I actually read the actual book of Eclipse. It was not exactly what I would call good. It's also the reason I went back to getting my Twilight knowledge from [ profile] cleolinda's recaps. less painful that way.)

The History Boys, easily. Seen it about ten times, and god no, I will never get tired of it.

Second place is probably Casablanca, and third is... either Serenity or Blade Runner.

"You're Beautiful" by James Blunt.

It's just... STUPID. Every time I hear it I just want to scream OK, WE GET IT, YOU'RE A LOSER WHO CAN'T TALK TO GIRLS, NOW STFU at him.

(FYI, "Love Story" by Taylor Swift is a very, very close second, because a) it is, in one sense, the musical equivalent of Twilight and b) there is at least one line in that song that makes absolutely no sense and trust me, I've thought about it.)

Well, I couldn't care less about baseball.

Also, I utterly despise the Cullen family. So I'd probably drop napalm on them and light a match.

Either that, or call up Every Other Vampire Ever (so, everyone from Lord Ruthven onwards), and let the proper vampires sort out... that lot.

Well. The answer to that is a little more complicated than you might think.

If I was going to have another name just in everyday life, it would be Philippa. To cut a long story short, that was going to be my name when I was born, but I got Nicole instead.

Being of a writerly persuasion, however, I've put some thought into what penname I'd use. Currently I think I would use Claire Cassidy. That's one of my middle names and my great-grandmother's maiden name.

David Morrissey. Just... because he's brilliant. Though it would mean he wouldn't be able to go back and have a certain Next Doctor character as a companion. But then again, he'd be the Doctor...


Peter Wingfield.

Picture Methos (off of Highlander). Picture Methos, in the TARDIS. (Sword optional)

THAT's why.

(If the Beeb want to try for a ginger Doctor, though.... Rik Mayall? Anyone?)

Doctor/Jack. SO MUCH.
Jack/Martha. (Well, at least she's A doctor. Heh.)
Tosh/Owen. (RIP. x2.)


Adama/Roslin. Asides from it being practically canon... well, they're just awesome.
Helo/Athena. Canon. Also, awesome.
Baltar/Caprica(/Head!Six).... does there need to be a reason?


Giles/Jenny. *sniff*
Dawn/Connor (don't ask me why. Really, don't.)

Simon/Kaylee (though Jayne/Kaylee is an acceptable alternative)

A world without Star Trek would mean no Spock.

This means that JJ Abrams' new ST movie would not exist, and hence Zach Quinto would not be able to play Spock.

This would be a terrible, terrible thing.
