0010 - hp_gen_ch's November challenge is "Inspiration". :>
0011 - You know what irrationally annoys me? Seeing Seamus Finnigan's surname spelled "Finnegan". Especially on a quiz at a site like the Leaky Cauldron. Lose.
Anyway. Part 1 of the responses to that character love/hate meme. QaF (US) characters.
I don't think "love" is an adequate word for what I feel about this character. Why? Well...
"Look, I don't believe in love. I believe in fucking. It's honest, it's efficient. You get in and out with a maximum of pleasure and a minimum of bullshit. Love is something that straight people tell themselves they're in so they can get laid. And then they end up hurting each other because it was all based on lies to begin with. If that's what you want, then go and find yourself a pretty little girl and get married."
"So in other words, for Justin to live here with you, he has to deny who he is... what he thinks... and how he feels. Well, that's not love. That's hate."
"It's not lying if they make you lie... if the only truth they can accept is their own."
"Do anything, say anything, fuck anything. No excuses, no apologies, no regrets."
"Some asshole told me that if you believe in something you have to be willing to sacrifice everything."
I didn't mind him at first -- I, er, actually thought that it was good for Justin to be with someone his own age and someone who genuinely cared for him and showed it in the traditional way (i.e. not the Brian Kinney way). But um. Then he totally fucked Justin over -- I really was nodding along with Justin when he threw his "Brian never promised me anything!" shitfit. Because it's true. Brian is a dick, but he never pretends to be anything else. And I felt really bad that Justin had to be so disappointed when he finally thought he found someone who genuinely cared for him. So I hate Ethan. D:
I adore Justin. Even though through most of seasons 1, he annoyed the fuck out of me by being one of those clingy, needy people I try to stay the hell away from. He's smart as a whip, brave and snarky and quick on the uptake. And so cute! :D
People love to hate this guy, but I personally don't have any strong feelings about him either way. He's like an older and more pedantic version of Brian, IMO -- kind of like "Brian gone wrong" in a way. Their personalities are quite similar, except that Dr Dave is actually concerned with what others think. I think that's part of the reason why Mikey went for Dave in the first place and why Brian and Dave loathed each other so much. Anyway, I'm glad David came along because he kept Mikey too busy and thus kept the series from turning into QaF UK. :D
