Name a character from one of my fandoms, and I'll give you either probably all of the following (a) three facts about them from my personal canon/fanon, (b) a reason he/she sucks, (c) a reason he/she is awesomecakes, (d) five things that never happened to that character or (e) five people that character never fell in love with and why.

My fandoms are listed in my interests but here's a quick run down: Star Wars, Pirates, Smallville, Alias, Buffy, Terminator...

Well, I'll go for the entirely obvious: Padme.

five people Padmé never fell in love with and why.

Padmé never fell in love with Bail Organa. Although she deeply admired his brilliant political mind and moral fiber, she was never tempted to forget his very married status.

Although she might have if he had returned into her life, Padmé never fell in love with Ian Lago.

She always considered him a father figure and Padmé never fell in love with Palpatine because that would have been incest.

Padmé never fell in love with Qui-Gon Jinn because she was too young and too preoccupied with the invasion of her planet to have done so.

Padmé never fell in love with Obi-Wan Kenobi. She and the Jedi Master were never more than friendly acquaintances and she always found him vaguely asexual.

I cannot express my adoration of you for this comment. :D

But I notice that Palo is not on your list. ;) Would he be number 6, or is there a different story there?
moonspinner From: moonspinner Date: December 10th, 2007 06:34 am (UTC) (Link)

Palo wasn't one of the people she didn't fall in love with. :P

He he.

Palo wasn't one of the people she didn't fall in love with. :P

Well, who could blame her for falling for Palo? He's a socially conscious, rebellious artist who's bound to get himself thrown in prison by the dictatorial regime. What's not to love? ;)

For "dictatorial regime," read either "Neimoidian invaders" or "Palpatine." Take your preference. :)

So, in your world did Palo and Padmé meet again as adults, or do you mean that she fell in love with him as a sort of childish first love?

The latter - it was childish, but it was still love. After all, we take ten year-old Anakin's love for Padmé as something real. Why shouldn't we take twelve year old Padmé's feelings for Palo as love?
fialleril From: fialleril Date: December 13th, 2007 04:12 am (UTC) (Link)
it was childish, but it was still love

Well, that's true. Childish first loves should always count. :) And it certainly seemed that she remembered him fondly. Sometimes those are the memories that last longest...
moonspinner From: moonspinner Date: December 14th, 2007 06:51 am (UTC) (Link)
You really summarized my thoughts very well. I don’t see Padmé falling into his arms if she ever met him again as Anakin’s wife, but I do see her staring rather dreamily for a few minutes before getting hold of herself.
fialleril From: fialleril Date: December 15th, 2007 12:48 am (UTC) (Link)
I can picture that, too. It would be especially interesting if Palo had never felt anything for her. :D

Padme
moonspinner From: moonspinner Date: December 4th, 2007 03:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
five things that never happened to Padmé

Padmé Naberrie never married Anakin Skywalker and when the Empire fell, joined forces with Bail Organa and Mon Mothma to spearhead the military arm of the Rebel Alliance, bringing the Empire to its knees ten years ahead of schedule.

Because the Naberries were not brutally murdered while she was an infant, Padmé was never adopted by Palpatine, became his devoted daughter and helped him corrupt Anakin Skywalker.

Padmé never forwent her second term in office, married Ian Lago and lived out her days in the serenity of her family home in Varykino.

Amidala never lost Naboo to the Neimodians, became a renegade Queen, general of a guerrilla army and wanted in three Sectors for acts of terrorism and crimes against Sentient beings.


Padmé Naberrie’s name was never recorded in the Journal of the Whills as the last Guardian and Keeper of the Jedi Order.

Faith from Buffy
moonspinner From: moonspinner Date: December 10th, 2007 06:35 am (UTC) (Link)
(c) a reason Faith is awesomecakes,

Because it's easy to be a hero, and it's easier to be a villain, but what is really hard is to go from hero to villain to hero.

(b) a reason Lana Lang sucks, and (c) a reason Lana Lang is awesomecakes

Because when she catches her boyfriend with her best friend, it's the boyfriend she gets mad at.

Good one :)

BTW, Lana being with Lex who's Clark's enemy, what do you think about that? About rules like not dating your friend's ex, or not dating your sister/brother's ex, or not dating an enemy of your ex and whatnot. Cause I see people talking about Lana like she deliberately did it to hurt Clark and it pisses me off cause I really like Lexana, it's a ship that actually has development and not just thrusted at you from the first episode. And the rules, they feel so highschool to me, yet i think it applies a lot when you're older too. To me, you can't always help who you fall for or who falls for you and if your feelings are serious, then who you used to date, or who the other person used to date shouldn't matter, especially if a certain time had already passed from the previous ship (i'm not just talking about SV now but in general), you would think people would be able to try and deal with it as an adult and not see it as something that's all about them.

I'm just ranting, cause the topic was brought up before, and well, to me I've been on both sides of the equation, i dated a friend's ex, and the friend actually said she was ok with it but when i did go out with the guy, my friend totally ditched me over it, which made me feel all horrible, but I mean, she did say she was ok with it. And in another situation, my ex dated a guy who was sort of a rival in HS and she did it without telling me about it since we were "friends with benefits" and she just showed up one day dating the other guy, so i know it hurts like hell, but i still think rules like that are so highschool runaround, I mean, can't people just sit down and discuss it?

Kyle Reese from Terminator.
moonspinner From: moonspinner Date: December 10th, 2007 06:53 am (UTC) (Link)
(a) three facts about Kyle Reese from my personal canon/fanon,

1, When he was ten, Kyle escaped from the Skynet factory where he had been a slave since he was six. He would have been recaptured but for the serendipity of a simultaneous attack on the same camp by the Resistance.

2, He kept vague memories of his family - his father, his mother, and his elder sister and that was how he knew he was not John Connor's son. It didn't stop him for mentally 'adopting' John as his father.

3, He was nine when he did his first human kill.
indiefic From: indiefic Date: December 10th, 2007 02:29 pm (UTC) (Link)
Have you read any of Kath's terminator fics? They go AU from the first movie and explore a world where Kyle helped raise his son. I think they're fabulous. if you're interested, they're here:

Why, Kitster Banai, of course. :D

And also I suppose I'll ask your take on Anakin, since no one else has.
moonspinner From: moonspinner Date: December 11th, 2007 02:36 pm (UTC) (Link)
(a) three facts about Kitster Banai from my personal canon/fanon,



Shmi Skywalker and Kitster remained friends long after Anakin left his mother and the two were still in correspondence in the weeks before she died.

Kitster won his freedom when he stole his detonator from a drunken Hutt during his extremely short stint as a dancer in Jabba's palace.

A few years after the Clone Wars, he spearheaded the Slave Uprising that finally brought legalized slave trading to a halt in Tatooine.


And a two-fer for Anakin!


(b) a reason Anakin sucks

Anakin Skywalker will forever be iconic but strangling your pregnant wife, no matter how pis*** off you are at the world, is never a good idea.



(e) five people that Anakin never fell in love with and why.

Anakin never fell in love with Sabé because he really didn't know her and he never saw the striking resemblance between her - or any other handmaiden as a matter of fact - and Padmé.

Anakin never fell in love with Obi-Wan or Palpatine because older men were not his type.

Anakin never fell in love with Barriss Offee. He and the other Padawan were close friends and his feelings towards her were very sisterly.

Although he thought she was hot [1], Anakin never fell in love with Sola Naberrie.


[1] ;)

Curious. frostbit_sky said the same thing. Are you two talking behind my back? ;)

Kitster won his freedom when he stole his detonator from a drunken Hutt during his extremely short stint as a dancer in Jabba's palace.

*stares* *contemplates* *stares some more* I want to see this story. Now.

A few years after the Clone Wars, he spearheaded the Slave Uprising that finally brought legalized slave trading to a halt in Tatooine.

This one is total love. I adore the idea of a slave revolt (Kitster as the SW Spartacus?), but I've never seen it done in anything except AU Anakin fic. I'd love to see someone do it with Kitster. He was born to be a revolutionary. ;)

On a totally random note, I have a next door neighbor named Mohamed who looks so much like the way I picture Kitster, it's scary. I kind of want to knock on his door and say, "Excuse me, you look exactly like Kitster Banai. Can I take your picture?" Only that would be perceived as weird and stalker-like... And, for the record, I'm definitely not stalking him. I just noticed when we met that he really looks like Kitster. ;)

Okay, anyway...

Anakin Skywalker will forever be iconic but strangling your pregnant wife, no matter how pis*** off you are at the world, is never a good idea.

I would be inclined to use much stronger language than that, but yes, essentially. ;)

his feelings towards her were very sisterly.

Err...you mean "brotherly," I assume. He felt as though she were his sister, not as though he were a sister to her, right?

Although he thought she was hot [1], Anakin never fell in love with Sola Naberrie.

LOL. And I don't think Darred would have been too pleased if he had... On the up shot, though, while Anakin may not like older men, he is apparently very fond of older women. ;)

So, I am still eagerly awaiting your request on my version of this meme. ;)

Curious. haydens_angel81 said the same thing. Are you two talking behind my back? ;)

*snort* We do that all the time. :p Actually, it just makes sense. Kit and Anakin were friends and it's only natural that he (Kit) would have spent lots of time with Shmi both before and after Anakin left Tatooine.


*stares* *contemplates* *stares some more* I want to see this story. Now.

One day. *whistles* You can always write it, you know. :p



And, for the record, I'm definitely not stalking him.

*mischief* Whatever makes you sleep at night, hon.

Yes. It's blatantly oedipal, isn't it?

True, true. I was just in a mood to propose conspiracy theories. ;)

You can always write it, you know. :p

Well... It's one of those ideas that I really like, and I would love to read if someone else wrote it. But I think that if I were ever to write how Kitster escaped slavery, within my own personal canon it would be different. So I'm not sure I could write it, because it doesn't quite fit the way I see the character. But I would still love to read it if someone who does see the character that way were to write it. ;)

*mischief* Whatever makes you sleep at night, hon.

I am simply appalled by what you seem to be implying. ;) I assure you that I am the acme of moral fiber.

It's blatantly oedipal, isn't it?

It is indeed. I'm somewhat disappointed by how few fics seem to explore that aspect of Anakin's relationship with Padmé. And the ones that do all seem to put an overly-dark twist on it. I'd like to see someone do something with it that shows it to be a flaw, but still gives a sympathetic portrayal of the characters involved.

Anabasis!Anakin, now, he has a pretty oedipal relationship with Padmé, too. He bought her as his slave for the sole reason that she reminded him of the mother he couldn't remember. O_o

When aren't you in the mood? *snerk*


Well... It's one of those ideas that I really like, and I would love to read if someone else wrote it.

LOL! Tell me about it. You know, I actually started writing fan fiction because no one ever seemed to write the stories I wanted to read. *le hint*

I like dysfunctionality. I believe that everyone has a degree of insanity in his/her genes. It doesn't always have to be blood and gore and straightjackets. As they say, every cowboy has Daddy issues.

Well, okay. I admit it. I enjoy a good conspiracy theory. ;)

You know, I actually started writing fan fiction because no one ever seemed to write the stories I wanted to read. *le hint*

Well I do intend to write a fic or two about how Kitster escaped slavery. But in my various worlds it probably won't involve dancing for a Hutt. That's something I'd like to read, but I don't think I could ever write it. It's hard to explain. It's kind of like the fact that I enjoy reading investigative journalism. But I don't feel I could ever be an investigative journalist. There are just some things I can't write well...

As they say, every cowboy has Daddy issues.

LOL! But who doesn't have father issues, really?

I figured. :p

:P Yeah, I think Anabasis!Anakin would be a psychologist's dream. Or nightmare...

I am interested in Irina Derevko, from Alias :)
moonspinner From: moonspinner Date: March 31st, 2009 11:27 am (UTC) (Link)

Better late than never...

(d) five things that never happened to Irina Derevekho

1) Irina Derevekho was never assigned to seduce & marry Arvin Sloane even though he was higher than Jack Bristow on the list of young CIA officers whose profiles were compatible with hers. She never broke him and Emily up; married him; had an affair with his best friend (Bristow); then killed him before her extraction.


2) It was never discovered while she was still a child that Irina Derevekho was the mother of the Chosen One and the Passenger and destined to be the forerunner of the most power human beings in history. Therefore, she was never smuggled out of Russia to the States by her paranoid parents; and ended up working for the US government.


3) Irina Derevekho never told Jack Bristow the truth while she was still posing as Laura; and thus, she never got his forgiveness and made a deal with the CIA wherein she became a double agent in the KGB.


4) Irina Derevekho never spared Sydney's life when she first met her daughter after almost thirty years. She never shot the Chosen One dead before Sydney could ever become a threat to achieving Rambaldi's End Game.


5) Irina Derevekho never shot Bill Vaughn as the assignment was given to someone else. Thus, no one ever rescued Nadia from the Russian scientists and she died before she was ten.

OMG, I just realized that I don't have a Sabe icon! :O

(a) three facts about Sabé from my personal canon/fanon:

1, Her last name is Jankerrie. Lando Calrissian comes from the House of Jankerrie on his father's side.

2, She initially wanted to go into politics but she chose to follow her parents' footsteps instead and go into the Royal Guard.

3, During the decades after the end of the Clone Wars, Sabé first joined then commandeered a fleet of YT-1300s, one of which she gave to her cousin Lando when he "graduated" from service.

Sio Bibble or Boss Nass

Naboo politics for teh win!11
moonspinner From: moonspinner Date: March 31st, 2009 11:48 am (UTC) (Link)

Better late than never...

(c) a reason Boss Nass is awesomecakes,

Boss Nass was aware that his people would not win an outright defiance of the Empire; and the Imperial officers garrisoned on Naboo quickly came to realize that their navies were no match for Gungan technology. Hence an unwritten non-interference treaty was agreed upon by both parties. Nass kept his people safe, and contributed to the Alliance's efforts by discretely supplying them with weapons, funds and counter-intelligence.
