1. Comment on this post.
2. I will give you a letter.
3. Think of 5 fictional characters and post their names and your comments on these characters in your LJ.

gave me "T". Jerk. In "revenge," I’ll do six characters. That’ll learn him!

T is for Titania, from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. – She’s proud, imperious, haughty and caught up in a feud with her husband. She gets a rather odd comeuppance when Puck enchants her to fall in love with and take Bottom to bed. Interesting play, and interesting character.

T is for Tiger lily, from Peter Pan (what, did you expect Tink?). A fairly stock "exotic princess" character in a tribe of Native Americans (Neverlandans?), where said tribe happens to have a racial slur for a name. She refuses to be married because she’s a pedophile, but at least (in the book) she sneaks aboard Hook’s ship with a knife so I’ll give her points for being a fairly tough girl, even though she gets caught and nearly killed.

T is for Thanos, from Marvel Comics. Thanos is Da Mang. I totally dig this guy. I love that he’s a nihilistic ubervillain that also manages to be a tweener and a complex character.

T is for Thorin Oakenshield, from The Hobbit. Thorin’s a tragic hero in the classical sense, whose own pride, greed and hubris ultimately doom him, though in the end he comes to understand this fact. That’s why I dig him. "If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world. But, sad or merry, I must leave it now. Farewell."

is for Taki, from the Soul series of video games. A smoking hot ninja in a red skintight outfit that allows for bouncing. Every adolescent videogame fanboy’s dream, right? Her story’s not bad either, though that’s remotely not why most guys like her. I enjoy her playstyle, though Siegfried’s really where it’s at as far as I’m concerned.

T is for Tanis Half-Elven, from the Dragonlance series. Well, he’s become one of the iconic half-elves (after Elrond, of course), and I can appreciate him. Plus, you gotta feel for a guy that has relationships with both Kitiara and Laurana (talk about a taste for difficult women…). But then, Tanis is a half-elven fantasy version of James T Kirk, so we know he’d hit that.
