this is an interesting read !
117 Buffyverse characters rated from worst to best. Naturally
WAY too subjective a topic to get any 2 Whedon fans to agree
- let alone us all. The idea is ludicrous. Yet, for those of us list
inclined it certainly gets the wheels spinning.
Personally, I LOVE the last place choice. As for first, Spike
is it BUT ....... at least they put him second & put a very
worthy top 5 character above him.
Many many disagreements -- Faith much lower, Doyle, Lorne &
Lilah higher, Rack much higher, THEY DIDN'T INCLUDE THE
GENTLEMEN or DER KINDERSTAD - the most terrifying big bads
Angel lower, Wesley much lower, Cordelia lower, Riley higher,
Glory & D'Hoffryn higher, Amy & Jonathon lower, Darla lower,
Drusilla higher etc etc etc.
Overall though, with a few glaring exceptions it wasn't near as
bad as I expected !

because 99% of the time it is these books/movies/tv shows that are the only thing holding my interest enough to hang around. My kids are adults and, whilst they do love me, they don't need me.
1: Who will be Sookie's HEA in the Sookie Stackhouse series?
~~ I like all her suitors bar Quinn, but Bill is the one. He always has been, for me. I thought there was a fair chance for him but after reading a few things I suspect not.
I believe it will be Sam and while I adore Bill, Sam will do fine for her. He is a wonderful man who loves her and will give her what she needs.
Sadly, after the book this year there are 3 more to go. At 1 per year I doubt I will ever find out.
2: Will Jericho Barrons & Mac end up together in the Fever series?
~~~ luckily, only one more book to come. Unluckily, not due til December. Still, I have high hopes that I will read a HEA there. I do love JZB.
3: Who will Cassie end up with in the Cassie Palmer series?
~~ It is between Mircea & Pritkin. I love them both but I think it will be Mircea. They both deserve to be happy and they both adore her.
I am fairly sure I won't ever know about this one. The next book isn't due for 18 months and then there could be up to 4 more. At the current rate I would die of old age anyway.
4: some easy ones ... Kate & Curran in the Kate Daniels series - YEP. I don't have a doubt there. Cat & Bones together for ever in the Night Huntress series - double yep. Nothing but death would split those 2. I would like to know if Vlad gets a HEA but with at least 3 more books planned, who can say.
5: Black Dagger Brotherhood - man I love these guys. Usually a HEA per book so it's only a question of will the book I am interested in be soon. The only couple left I really want to see together is Qhuinn & Blay so hopefully soon .. JR Ward says yes they are HEA so yay, I would love to read it though.
6: Morganville Vampires - I want to see Shane & Claire settled HEA but I have no idea how many books to come so ... I think they will, that will have to do.
7: Will Dorian & Eugenie live HEA in the Dark Swan series?
~~~ I think so. I hope so. Only 2 more books and usually one per year so maybe I will read a happy ending there.
8: new series - I want to see Jane & Anyan end up together (Jane True series) and Toby & Tybalt ditto (October Daye series). With however many books to come in each of these new series, I doubt I will find out so I shall believe.
I need to see Sherlock Holmes, Alice in Wonderland and Cabin in the Woods. First 2 are now-ish but CITW delayed til '11. Fingers crossed.
Whether realistic or realms of fantasy, these are the HEAs I want to see in my favourite shows -- House/Cameron, Abby/McGee, ELLIOTT/OLIVIA for god's sake, after 11 years give us something !! Bones/Booth although I care less since the shitty trick played at the end of last season, Prentiss/Hotch, Garcia/Kevin, Castle/Beckett, Bill/Sookie (if not the books AT LEAST in True Blood)
Yea, sad as it is these are my reasons to believe (isn't that a song?)

Well, I am just looking around the net
to see who won that I care about.
BEST news - Robert Downey Jr won for
Sherlock Holmes !!!!:D:D
EQUAL BEST news - Michael C Hall won
best actor in a tv drama (this led to
me learning something that is the
opposite of best news, but later ...)
and it seems the only other award I
agree with is John Lithgow winning
best supporting for Dexter. Told ya he
was seriously fucking scary !!
The hugely shocking awful news
that upset me - Michael C Hall has
cancer.It is fortunate that it is
non Hodgkins lymphoma, one of the
most treatable cancers. He apparantly
had it last year and has been getting
treatment and he is now officially
Michael, you are a superb actor and
seemingly a nice person. You deserve
that award probably more than anyone
ever did, your acting in Dexter is
off the charts good. Be well. Recover
fully, take care of yourself and live
a very long & healthy happy life.
I don't personally care about too many celebs
(the real people I mean, I might love their
character but the person behind the acting, meh)
Michael is one I care about very much.
Congratulations on tonight.

well, really not actual lists but just my selections for -- stuff that happened in 2009
TV shows I am saddest about being canned - LIFE !!!! Crewes, Reese, Tidwell & Ted made this show a unique crime show with much more humour, heart & intelligence than most.
Also Dollhouse and 2 that are still theoretically being made but have been ruined by casting disasters - Scrubs & Law & Order Criminal Intent
Saddest losses of Famous People - PATRICK SWAYZE. What a gentleman he was, a good person, a good actor and the focus of millions of dreams when he brought Johnny to life in Dirty Dancing.
Brittany Murphy was a very sad loss also and of course the beautiful Host, Andy Hallett, dead at 33.
Best movies for 2009 - Taken (Liam Neeson) the Soloist (RDJ) the Private Lives of Pippa Lee (Robin Wright) Milk (Sean Penn) Zombieland (Woody Harrelson) Sherlock Holmes (RDJ - preemptive here as it is released tomorrow but I KNOW it will be the best ) 500 Days of Summer (Zooey Deschanel) The Ugly Truth (Gerry Butler/Katey Heigl) Precious ; Good (Viggo) Law Abiding Citizen (Gerry Butler)
