spock: logic is sexy

A meme and some links

This week is so crazy! Graduation is tonight, and I've somehow gotten roped into co-hosting not one but two dinner parties for twelve. This is also the first week of what I'm calling my summer job: getting in shape by going to the gym every day. Ow, my abs!

My springtime_gen gift was posted yesterday...and I haven't had a chance to read it. The first paragraph is intriguing though, and it's about the Weasleys. I commented to let the author know I'm coming back to read it soon, and you guys could give it some love in the meantime if you'd like. Also, there are some very interesting comments on the Black Widow post I made this weekend. My flist is very perceptive about the treatment of female characters, which is completely unsurprising since I met most of them at where_no_woman.

And now for a meme, stolen most recently from noirrosaleen:

Make a list of fifteen characters first, and keep it to yourself for the moment. (That way you're not leading the questions asked to fit the characters.)

Ask your followers to ask you questions.

After your followers have asked enough questions, round them up and answer them using the fifteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.

Questions might include things like:

'One, Nine and Fifteen move in together. Is this a really bad idea?'
'Under what circumstances might Five and Seven fall in love?'
'Which character on the list would you most want on your side in a zombie invasion?'

Prompt me, guys! I want to write some silly ficlets after this week stops being crazy.
Two, six, and fifteen go drinking. Who passes out first?

(every time this meme goes around I think of Doctors.
starting with my standard question for this meme:

3 and 15: BFFs or mortal enemies?

let's see what other shenanigans we can come up with...

4 and 8 do the fake boy/girlfriend routine. Does 9 buy it?

Does 5 ship 11/12?

2 is suddenly dropped into 7's universe (use 13 or 14 if same universe). What happens?
1 and 3 want to do some extreme sports, who chickens out?

and please answer your example questions, they look fun :)

One and five face off: who wins?

Is it surprising that two is a much better sharpshooter than twelve?
*waves from one graduation season to another*
*saves your Natasha meta -- I already know I'll agree*

Whenever I see this meme I like to ask questions for all the characters, but I haven't time. So I'll just ask this:

What does Ten serve Two and Four for dinner?

Why does Eight kidnap Fifteen?

Why do Nine and Twelve team up?
Eight, three and eleven go on a singles holiday - who hooks up with whom?

One and fourteen are in a physical fight - who wins?
If 9 and 15 had to form a team, what would they argue about? And who else might they invite into their team to complete the skill set?

What if 2 met 10 on a blind date?
