memes galore  
1.


1. My PM in jail/in exile/anywhere but where he is right now.

2. Being able to stop procrastinating all the time. YEAAAH RIGHT.

3. A Dark Tower adaptation that doesn't suck major ass.

4. Uhm, moving to Paris? Does that count?

5. Find a job that I like. And possibly pays me enough to afford going to concerts.

6. Going somewhere VERY far for a LONG trip. Not happening anytime soon though. :(

7. Going through all the books I have in my to-read pile/shelves. It's never going to happen, I know.


2. Aaand, ship meme from elliotsmelliot. Let's see if this round I'm less obvious. I'm going for both veeeryclosefriendships/slash things and canon stuff. Pick 14 of your ships and write down a quote for each of them. Have your flist guess the ships without using Google / imdb. Warning: half of these are from a book. And half of those were taken from the book and not found online, so good luck with that.

1. "I am grateful, but.. you were well away. Why come back?"

"I dreamed of you."
Jaime/Brienne, A song of ice and fire, guessed by bold_seer

2. "There came into my life, after years during which I wandered in the desert as solitary as an anchorite, a whining and self-involved young man whose only ambition was to continue taking a drug which did little but make him sniffle and feel sleepy. This was a posturing, selfish, loudmouthed loutkin with little to recommend him -"

"But good-looking. Don't forget that. The cat was a true sex mo-chine."
Roland/Eddie, the Dark Tower series, guessed by primarycolors92

3. - Did you fuck me when I was out?
- Hell, no.
- Then quit looking at me like that.

4. “You're awful.”
“I'm honest. It’s the world that’s awful.”
Sandor/Sansa, A song of ice and fire, guessed by bold_seer

5. But think not ill of me, if I say to you: they have brought me both a joy and a pain that I never thought to know. Joy to see you; but pain, because now the fear and doubt of this evil time are grown dark indeed. ***, I would not have this world end now, nor lose so soon what I have found. Faramir/Eowyn, LOTR, guessed by mollivanders

6. I can't carry it for you, but I can carry you! Sam/Frodo, LOTR, guessed by mollivanders, elliotsmelliot and tellshannon815

7. Can I tell you something if you promise not to tell another soul? Dean/Castiel, SPN, guessed by kel_riley

8. [Huge blocks of texts edited from this one, sorry.] "The whole building acts like one gigantic -" *A and B kiss* "- lightening rod. The steel structure of the building attracts but then totally dissipates the discharge -"

"I'm sorry."

"That's all right."

"I didn't mean to - wow, look at that."
Sam Clay/Tracy Bacon, The Amazing Adventure of Kavalier & Clay, guessed by ozmissage

9. - Well that looks bad.
- And it feels worse. My subconscious is haunting me, ***. Please tell me you have something for that.”
- Double shot.
Damon/Alaric, the vampire diaries, guessed by ozmissage

10. "You're not a man. None of us are men."

"You'd better be wrong about that."

11. "I'd just like to say," he said, "if we don't get out of this, that . . . I'll have known, deep down inside, that there was a spark of goodness in you."

"That's right," said *** bitterly. "Make my day."
Aziraphale/Crowley, Good Omens, guessed by sin_stained_ink

12. - I don’t understand.
- You wouldn’t. You’re too fucking healthy-minded. You’ll sit here waiting for me to materialize from a piece of fucking furniture and think the world is normal.

13. - Maybe we should do one of those hole things? You know, stick the pen in the throat?
- Yeah, good idea, you go get me a pen!
Jack/Boone, Lost, guessed by mollivanders, elliotsmelliot and sin_stained_ink

14. - You picked his pockets without stealing anything. Cool.
- It's what I do. A man, a phone, no limits.
- A man, a phone, no action. Come on, man, you left that out there like a hanging curve ball!
Eliot/Parker/Hardison, Leverage, guessed by sin_stained_ink


3. Stolen from toestastegood:

Give me a pairing and I will tell you:

1. What they most commonly do during sex
2. Who has prettier hair
3. What they argue about most often
4. Who'd cope best if the other one died
5. The happiest plausible happily-ever-after I can think of for them.

7 is Cas to Dean, right?
the female ghost of tom joad: supernatural + nick cave = otpjanie_tangerine on July 20th, 2011 08:39 pm (UTC)
Yep! :D lol every time I do this meme it gets guessed first even if I try to find not-too-easy quotes. Oh well. ;)
The Cleaverage: castielkel_reiley on July 20th, 2011 08:44 pm (UTC)
a couple of the others look familiar, but i can't guess them w/o googling :(
the female ghost of tom joad: supernatural + nick cave = otpjanie_tangerine on July 20th, 2011 09:13 pm (UTC)
You have reason to know at least three. Or well, I know you're familiar with the books said three quotes were in. ;)
sin_stained_ink on July 20th, 2011 08:43 pm (UTC)
11. Aziraphale and Crowley?
the female ghost of tom joad: good omensjanie_tangerine on July 20th, 2011 09:12 pm (UTC)
Yep! :D

the female ghost of tom joad: lotrjanie_tangerine on July 20th, 2011 09:12 pm (UTC)
Yes and yes! AND OH DEAR ALL MY CREYS, TOO. :((( THAT BIT SLAYED ME.

(Also I count on you to guess another one. You know it. *nudges*)

elliotsmelliot: Chuck Jeffsterelliotsmelliot on July 20th, 2011 08:43 pm (UTC)
# 13 - Boone/Jack
#6 - Sam/Frodo

And for the other meme - how about Jeffster for something silly?
the female ghost of tom joad: chuck jeffsterjanie_tangerine on July 20th, 2011 08:54 pm (UTC)
Yes and yes!

And OH SURE THING!

1. What they most commonly do during sex:

Uuuuhm. Weeelll. Talk a lot. Or better, Lester would totally attempt dirty talk and Jeff would just lay back and go with it.

2. Who has prettier hair

Lol well obviously Lester. Since he actually HAS some hair.

3. What they argue about most often

The tracklisting of their first album! They know it's going to be covers because they're still not so famous that they can afford original material, but Jeff would like more 80s things while Lester is totally set on more hair metal.

4. Who'd cope best if the other one died

Sorry, they're a single entity. If one goes, the other follows.

5. The happiest plausible happily-ever-after I can think of for them.

Big Mike DOES become their manager, they buy some horrible costumes, they do another Bon Jovi cover and put it on youtube. Somehow they start getting a million hits and they gain a cult following and they get a record out with some small record company and they live happily ever after, putting a youtube video after another online and getting a million hits on each.
elliotsmelliot: Chuck Morgan Chuckelliotsmelliot on July 20th, 2011 08:56 pm (UTC)
Hilarious! I love it, especially the arguments about the track listing. You are brave to tackle their sex question.
the female ghost of tom joad: chuck jeffsterjanie_tangerine on July 20th, 2011 09:05 pm (UTC)
Believe me, I'm not ever going there again I think. ;) ;) but they do work for funny answers.
Creature Of Hobbit: samtellshannon815 on July 20th, 2011 08:44 pm (UTC)
#6 is Sam to Frodo! (Reminds me of the time back at St Andrews when one of my friends and I were joking about the slashy quote in the book "Come on, Mr. Frodo dear! Sam will give you a ride" and another friend of ours kept insisting it wasn't slashy at all!)

And for the other meme, who else but Sayid/Desmond?
the female ghost of tom joad: lost des/sayid *g*janie_tangerine on July 20th, 2011 09:11 pm (UTC)
Yep! :D and hahahahahahah WELL THAT WAS SLASHY HOW CAN IT NOT BE.

1. What they most commonly do during sex

TALK! You know they totally get off on each others' accents.

2. Who has prettier hair

That's actually pretty hard! I'll go with Sayid though. It's soft, curly, so dark, and it wasn't damaged by years in a hatch.

3. What they argue about most often

Is it worse to torture people during war or lose your head slowly while pushing a button? Jury's out.

4. Who'd cope best if the other one died

Desmond I guess? Though uhm. Well. Sayid technically died and Desmond didn't. This question is totally made to fuck with my head isn't it.

5. The happiest plausible happily-ever-after I can think of for them.

So: Sayid survives the submarine thing after Desmond reminds him that HE STILL CAN FEEL THINGS (shuddup it totally happened!), they're together when Jack vs. Locke happens, they hug a lot during that time, then Sayid helps Desmond back home but since he doesn't have anyone anymore and Penny isn't stupid he stays with them and teaches their kid how to cook while everyone lives in a happy, open three-way.
sin_stained_ink on July 20th, 2011 08:44 pm (UTC)
13. Boone and Jack? Didn't recognise it until I read the quotes again.
the female ghost of tom joad: lost jack/boone <3 <3 <3janie_tangerine on July 20th, 2011 08:46 pm (UTC)
Yep! :D those two were my OTP. Good times. ;)
joy: castiel » dancing with flames in thejoyyjpg on July 20th, 2011 08:49 pm (UTC)
Well, damn. The only ships I know from that meme (Dean/Castiel, Crowley/Aziraphale, Jack/Boone) are all the ones people already guessed. WHIIINE.

Want #2: man, do I feel you on that one. I have no motivation. I don't know where I lost it, but it's gone. *cries*

Okay, for the second meme: DEAN/CASTIEL, OBVS. Even though I already know the answer to #2. ;D
the female ghost of tom joad: supernatural dean/cas angstjanie_tangerine on July 20th, 2011 09:04 pm (UTC)
Well, they're all correct! :D and eeh, next time I won't go AS heavy on unknown book ships, lol.

I know? So much?

Also:

1. What they most commonly do during sex?

Use their hands a lot. Touch each others' hair and face. Possibly talk, though not necessarily the dirty kind of talk. If against a wall, it's quick and rough. If not, they take their time.

2. Who has prettier hair

CASTIEL OBVIOUSLY. XD

3. What they argue about most often

How exactly one thinks he's not worthy of the other and vice-versa. ;)

4. Who'd cope best if the other one died

.. shit this is hard. *cries already* I think Dean though. Heck, Castiel has basically gone insane/ballistic because Dean didn't stick with him AFTER dying for him three times, if Dean died and Castiel couldn't go to his heaven or whatever he'd destroy the world for real. While Dean - I think he's adjusted enough (and still has Sam/Bobby left - Castiel basically HAS NO ONE) that he COULD cope, though he'd still be devastated. But idk if you look at it that way, Castiel has been living -for- Dean for two seasons. I don't think he'd cope at all.

5. The happiest plausible happily-ever-after I can think of for them.

Oh jesus what a question. With the current situation? Somehow they manage to depower Cas, the latter becomes human/falls, they spend ages trying to get over all their baggage and get together after a lot of angsting, but then since they'd actually quit the bullshit they'd have a chance at being happy. More realistic: Dean has to kill Cas, Cas actually wants him to because he realized how crappy it was to take the souls but he can't control them/himself anymore, then BAM! shortcut to Dean dying years later and getting into Heaven and we find out they were soulmates after all and Cas got forgiven or something and he's there waiting for Dean and they make up and have lots of afterlife sex. Canon damn you for not giving me anything better to use. XD
joy: castiel » when you're gone i'll telljoyyjpg on July 20th, 2011 09:21 pm (UTC)
1. How is it that you see into my mind? There is lots of touching.

2. WHAT KIND OF QUESTION IS THAT. CASTIEL'S HAIR IS CLEARLY BETTER THAN EVERYONE ELSE'S.

3. D:

4. I agree, I think Dean would cope better. In my head canon, he would naturally be devestated and have trouble dealing. Given the whole "you're like a brother to me" line, IMO, Cas isn't that far from being on the same level as Sam (though I know Dean could never really care for anyone the way he cares for Sam), so THERE WOULD BE ANGST. And if Cas dies and they do not SHOW ME THE ANGST? I will hurt someone.

5. See. I'm torn. On the one hand, the only way I will accept Castiel dying is if Dean's kills him. And it has to be this big angsty thing, like... well, the only thing I can compare it to is a majorly spoilerrific moment from a show I can't remember if you've ever seen or not, so I WILL SHUT UP. But there are a lot of similarities. ANYWAY. On the other hand, I need defused/humbled/human!Cas and lots of guilt and redemption and angst and forgiveness and hugging, please. D:
the female ghost of tom joad: supernatural castiel 3.0janie_tangerine on July 20th, 2011 09:28 pm (UTC)
1. IS THAT EVEN A QUESTION? XD it's obvious that we share a head. ;)

4. That. I mean, Dean HAS lost Sam once, I don't think anything could be worse for him you know? Even if it'd be BAD. On the contrary Cas is way less stable on that front.

5. I WANT fallen!Cas so much that it hurts me. But if he has to die I want Dean to do it. Er, oh dear, now this sounds probably very weird but have you seen Kill Bill? Because the ending of the second movie is the way I'd want it to happen if it has to happen. Mostly I JUST WANT FALLEN!CAS OKAY.
Shonatoestastegood on July 20th, 2011 09:10 pm (UTC)
Ooh, for meme 3 (because I am rubbish at the quotes meme and can never guess ANY), how abouttttttt Charlie/Desmond?
the female ghost of tom joad: lost des/charliejanie_tangerine on July 20th, 2011 09:45 pm (UTC)
Alllright! :D

1. What they most commonly do during sex

Charlie rambles. About a lot of things. Mostly how good Desmond is with his hands. Desmond calls Charlie 'brother' all the time. Charlie is, well, not so mildly disturbed anymore.

2. Who has prettier hair

Des! :D sorry, Charlie, but it's long and you can run your hands through it.

3. What they argue about most often

Charlie wants to do things. Desmond thinks he'll die. Charlie assures him that he won't. Desmond won't take chances. And so on.

4. Who'd cope best if the other one died

Errrr. Canon-considering, I'd say Des? Though the other way would have worked too. HOW DO YOU ANSWER THIS WHEN CANON DOESN'T GIVE ME CHOICES.

5. The happiest plausible happily-ever-after I can think of for them.

Desmond manages not to let Charlie close himself into the station, Charlie is VERY grateful *nudgenudge*, Desmond stops getting visions, the boat is not Penny's but when she comes rescuing people she's especially grateful, and Claire gets on the boat too and they do the huge open family thing, and Charlie keeps on showing Des how grateful he is.
ozmissage: TVD. Damon/Alaric. better mistakes.ozmissage on July 20th, 2011 09:12 pm (UTC)
8. Sam/Tracy from Kavalier and Clay. (That is the most beautiful scene ever. Rivaled only by the scene where Rosa and Joe hook up that has all the butterfly imagery. I really need to reread that book.)

9. Alaric/Damon, yes?

(Also, while we're talking about them, Alaric/Damon for the second meme.) ;)

the female ghost of tom joad: the vampire porn damon/alaricjanie_tangerine on July 20th, 2011 09:24 pm (UTC)
I WAS SO COUNTING ON YOU FOR SAM/TRACY. THAT SCENE. THAT SHIP. MY HEART. I also was very gleeful because I had this idea they'd hook up, but. XD (also yes, MOST BEAUTIFUL SCENE EVER INDEED? I love every single word of that.)

And heee, yes indeed!

1. What they most commonly do during sex

Bicker. So much. Damon mostly - Alaric loses his patience for it in the middle and just wants to DO it, but Damon keeps on teasing and Alaric shuts him up in creative ways.

2. Who has prettier hair

Well, sorry Ric, but Damon. Especially after yours looked horrible for the entire first part of S2.

3. What they argue about most often

Dude they already argue about everything! I guess the respective suicidal streak?

4. Who'd cope best if the other one died

This one is tricky. One is tempted to say Damon because after all he's immortal (more or less) so he knows that Alaric will bite it at some point and he SHOULD be adjusted to it, but I'm not really sure Damon is that zen yet. He might be reckless about killing people but I'm not sure he takes it well if anyone he gives half a shit about bites it, and he -DOES- give half a shit about Alaric. I'm very tempted to say Alaric would the one that would cope best, though he wouldn't be really THAT much okay after it.

5. The happiest plausible happily-ever-after I can think of for them.

Damon & Alaric team up to save Stefan from dark side & succeed. When Stefan is returned to Elena, Damon finally realizes that it's True Love and figures it's high time he lets it go, and then he notices that he and Alaric are basically an old married couple. They hook up & have lots of sex. And since by now no one cares about flimsy things, everyone moves into the Salvatore boarding mansion where Stefan & Elena have make-up/reunion sex, Damon and Alaric have more or less the same, Jeremy decides that since Alaric is practically his dad he can't avoid living with all of them but he's not just sitting there doing nothing and so Bonnie moves in too. Then Caroline and Tyler get kicked out by their respective families because THEY hooked up and they move in too and D & A realize that they're basically responsible for everyone and have more sex to cope with it.The end.

Lol that was SO realistic.

AWW. <3 I swear, all I want out of next season season is like, domestic happy times for Damon and Alaric where they become the group dads. Seriously, that's all I want.

For meme #3: Maylor, circa 1980.
the female ghost of tom joad: queen rogerjanie_tangerine on July 20th, 2011 10:00 pm (UTC)
Oookay!

1. What they most commonly do during sex

Roger dirty-talks a lot, Brian likes it a whole damn lot. Then again, with that voice.

2. Who has prettier hair

... damn, this is hard! If you said '70s I'd have said Roger because that lovely, long-ish, soft blond hair? Well, yeah. But if I'm not confusing things the 80s was when he started to cut them short so I'll go with Brian. But barely.

3. What they argue about most often

Uhm, in 1980 I guess they'd mostly argue about Flash Gordon related matters and artistic direction of the new records? ;)

4. Who'd cope best if the other one died

Er, oh dear. I'd think they'd both take it badly equally. I really can't come up with a definitive answer for this one.

5. The happiest plausible happily-ever-after I can think of for them.

Well, they're still playing together (or have played together for a lot of time and I'm pretty sure they will again at some point), they're still having a career and they're still very close. I think they're having it! Though if I don't have to take into account the NOW, I guess that in the 80s it'd have been being still around playing together at the current time. Which is happening, so we're still there.
So Far Gone, She's Off The Map: did what?anewdaysjourney on July 20th, 2011 10:30 pm (UTC)
I'm glad you took this one on with both hands! It's been so long since you and I were going to collaborate, and I figured that making a specific era would be fun and a bit more challenging, given how gorgeous Roger's hair has been at times...

I do like your thinking on #1. In fact, so much so that a plot bunny bit my ass. Hard.

Sending you lots of love 'cause I do miss being in touch so much, life just seems to be getting the upper hand with both of us in recent years!

Number two is, obviously, Roland to Eddie.

Convincing him to give Calvin Tower a chance (by not killing him), I believe?
the female ghost of tom joad: porn!janie_tangerine on July 21st, 2011 07:31 am (UTC)
CORRECT! :D

you're the first person guessing this ship in the last three times I did this meme. Let me give you a bunch of internets.
A.vella_amor_dm on July 21st, 2011 01:15 am (UTC)
meme 2 - #3 sounds soooo familiar but i just can't place it!

meme 3 - TVD: Caroline/Tyler :D

the female ghost of tom joad: the vampire porn carolinejanie_tangerine on July 21st, 2011 07:41 am (UTC)
It's from an HBO show!

1. What they most commonly do during sex

I think they bite each other a lot. She tries not to, he goes with it - it's not like he can do lasting damage if he isn't turned anyway.

2. Who has prettier hair

Duh, CAROLINE. Sorry Tyler, but you can't beat all that lovely, curly, soft blonde. Tho Tyler's hair in the last two eps was awesomecakes.

3. What they argue about most often

Well, she wants to be there when he turns and he doesn't.

4. Who'd cope best if the other one died

Uuuhm. *ponders* Maybe Caroline? She's a tough cookie and I'm not so sure that he'd cope with her dying so well.

5. The happiest plausible happily-ever-after I can think of for them.

Uhm. They fall in love, parents find out about their respective true nature, everyone is horrified, they get kicked out, Caroline thinks that since Elena moved into the Salvatore mansion with her brother no one will say no to them and no one says no. So they move in with Elena/not-dark-side!Stefan/Jeremy/Damon/Alaric and the latter two spend their time facepalming because they never asked for any of this but it's not like they'll ever kick everyone out. And everyone has lots of sex, Tyler gets to turn in the Salvatore cellar with Caroline sipping donated blood outside and there's an entire support system and everyone lives happily ever after.

#1 Please please please, let it happen in my lifetime, pleeeeeeeeeease.

And #6&7 are half the reason I wanna win the lottery (the other half is just plain greed).
the female ghost of tom joad: tangerinesjanie_tangerine on July 21st, 2011 07:31 am (UTC)
#1 we can only hope, right? Right?

Greed is never a bad thing, in this case. ;) ;)
