Bouncing this one back to you -- CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.

Favorite Female Character: Like you, my favorite female character is probably Catherine Willows, and probably for the same reasons you listed. She’s strong and a loving mother, who has gone through a lot in her life, from dealing with her ex, to the death of said ex, to the trials of being a single working mother. A close second for me would be the recurring character, Lady Heather, who despite being a dominatrix has shown on nearly every occasion we’ve seen her to be a very kind woman who cares a great deal about the people she manages to form a personal relationship with.

Favorite Male Character: As much as I love Gil Grissom, I’ll have to give this place to Nick Stokes. The man has been through quite a lot over the course of the show, and yet, despite the danger that being a CSI has put him in, on multiple occasions, he never seems to consider leaving. That, and the fact that he seems like a very easy person to talk to (and has shown to have this trait, especially when it comes to children) makes it impossible for me not to like him. I also love Jim Brass, but moreso after the later part of season one, where he really shows that he’s kind of gruff, but still really caring.

Favorite Arc: All of the seasons that I’ve seen from beginning to end (1-9) are about the same in terms of quality, so I’ll just list my favorite arc that I’ve seen all the way through. And, of course, for me, there’s only one arc that can be given this place: The Miniature Killer arc. The storyline goes throughout the majority of season seven, and is among the most unsettling things I have ever seen on television; in this arc, somebody is murdering people, something that is not unusual in this series. However, unlike most murderers, the Miniature Killer leaves a perfect one-inch scale model of the crime scene, complete with really blood from the victim, either at the crime scene, or with someone close to the victim. The only things each of the miniatures have in common, as far as anyone knows until near the very end of the season, is that there is a hidden picture of a bloody doll in every model; and later, it’s discovered that every miniature also includes bleach in someway. This is an arc full of suspense, and is probably the best mystery I’ve ever seen.

Favorite Episode(s): Like with the seasons, I love almost all of the episodes that I’ve seen. Some aren’t quite as good as others, but none of them are even close to being bad. So, for this, I’ll probably have to go with the episodes that got me the closest to crying: Gentle, Gentle ; Feeling the Heat; and Still Life.  It’s hard to explain why I love these episodes without giving away the “twists” in each of them, but I can tell you that each of these episodes involves the death of a child, and while that is sad enough, these three episodes makes it even more heart-wrenching. 

Favorite Cast Member: Just based on their performances in this show, I’ll probably have to go with George Eads, and not because he plays my favorite males character. I have to give this to him simply for his acting in the fifth season finale, Grave Danger. He gave an amazing performance, as all the actors do, but he also gave an amazing performance while spending most of the episode in a glass coffin and also not talking for a good chunk of the episode. That is impressive.

Favorite Pairing: I honestly think the main group works better as a sort of family unit…but I do have one ship that I really enjoyed among the “Lab Guys”, which is the pairing of David Hodges and Wendy Simms. I just find them really cute together, with their relationship being one of the few times when I’ve seen romantic denial (two characters try to deny having crushes on each other despite it being obvious) done right.

Character I’d Die Defending: Like you said, this is a very poor topic to discuss given the theme of the series. I’m going to avoid answering this question, just in case it possibly jinxes me.

Character I Cannot Sympathize With: Again, like you said, it’s hard to completely hate a good chunk of these characters, even the killers. Almost every one of the killers are made sympathetic in one way or another, and in several cases, I actually almost feel worse for the killer than the victim. I guess if I had to choose, I’d probably pick the Blue Paint Killer and his Accomplice; a pair of serial killers who are simply cruel and take advantage of women for no reason other than sick pleasure.

Character I Grew to Love: Have to agree with you that Raymond Langston didn’t really impress me too much in his first few appearances, but I grew to love him fairly quickly.

My Anti-OTP: I don’t really have any pairings that I absolutely hate. There’s some that I don’t agree with, but there’s no pairing in this series that I’m actually against.

czequers asked:

I'll start with a good old favorite -- Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Favorite Female Character: Has to be Toph. So many awesome females in this show, but who can top an twelve year old blind girl who can kick everyone’s ass?

Favorite Male Character: Iroh, hands down. Once again, nearly every guy is awesome, but Iroh is like…I want him to be real just to give me advice and talk to me. He is that nice of a guy.

Favorite Season: …Probably Book 3, Fire. That’s when things really got amazing for me, honestly, though Earth was awesome as well and Water is just about as good. The whole show is made of WIN.

Favorite Episode: Sozin’s Comet, all four parts. This movie is just epic incarnate. 

Favorite Cast Member: …I have to pick just one? Okay, then…Jessie Flower. She plays Toph. Enough said.

Favorite Ship: Too. Many…I’ll just say Kataang (Katara/Aang)

Character I’d Die Defending: Tie between Suki and Mai. Girls get too much hate in a lot of cases.

Character I Just Can’t Sympathize With: Sozin and Ozai…One guy tried to commit genocide, and the other very nearly did the same.

Character I Grew to Love: Ty Lee. Thought she was annoying at first, now she’s just a ball of adorable energy. 

My Anti OTP: Uh…Any incest pairs?

Festival of Fright: Top 10 Scariest Villains

It’s time for my first list, and what would be a better subject for a list during Halloween than villains? You love to hate them, hate to love them, and especially as a kid, you loved to be scared by them. So join me as I count down my top ten favorite (and scariest) villains. And just as a warning, there will be spoilers:

10.) Judge Claude Frollo (Disney’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame)

*Holds up shield* Now I know a lot of you are wondering why I put this guy at the bottom of the list. After all, he’s probably one of the darkest villains of our childhoods. He was racist towards Gypsies to the point of wanting to commit genocide, he was a pervert, he killed a woman, tried to drown her baby, and when he has to raise the baby, he spends over a decade emotionally abusing the kid. He’s a really horrible person. But, here’s the thing…He never scared me. Even on my first viewing of this movie, I found Frollo fascinating and always looked forward to seeing him. So, he’s a great villain, but on this list, it’s the scary ones who win.

9.) DOR-15 (Disney’s Meet the Robinsons)

Yes, I put a robotic hat on my list of favorite villains, and yes, I think she’s scarier than Frollo. Why? Just watch the climax of the movie! She creates what is essentially a Hell of Hats by doing nothing more than manipulating a man-child who wanted revenge for sleep deprivation. Oh, and it’s implied she had said man-child killed once more robots like her were mass-produced. Also, she can produce a miniature version of herself, that can be used as a mind-control device. So, not only can she manipulate you, but if that doesn’t work…she can just force you to do what she wants.

8.) Myotismon (Digimon Adventure)

Now, for this entry, I’m only counting his original form, since that’s the one that scared me the most. Myotismon makes the list not so much for design (honestly, most of the villains on this list wouldn’t be here if I was going for the most frightening-looking), but for his motives. And what are his motives, you may ask, if you haven’t seen the series? He wants to murder a small child. Well, okay, he actually wants to conquer/destroy the Digital and Real worlds, but in order to do that, he has to kill a child who is likely under the age of fourteen. He’s also a vampire and more than once actually sucks women’s blood. 

7.) Him (The Powerpuff Girls)

I’ll admit, this guy is on the list mainly for two specific episodes in the series he’s from: “Speed Demon”, and “Tough Love”, both of which are very horrible concepts. In the first, the girls go fifty years into the future by accident, to find that the world has been taken over by Him, and the setting is predictably apocalyptic. Worse is that in that future, Him is unstoppable. And Him makes sure the girls know that this horrible future is their fault. These girls are five. In “Tough Love”, Him turns all the love the people of Townsville have for the girls into hate. This even includes their father, Professor Utonium. He does this with no effort.

6.) Syndrome (The Incredibles)

How could I not have this guy on the list? He’s the main antagonist of one of my favorite movies of all time. And even without that little bit of bias, I just think he’s a great villain with an even better backstory. In fact, it’s his backstory that really puts him on the list, because it’s not like something similar couldn’t happen in real life. Syndrome was once an enthusiastic kid named Buddy Pine who, after being turned down by his idol, Mr. Incredible, basically allowed his anger to fester and boil for years, resulting in the deaths of at least a dozen people. And in case that doesn’t making him creepy enough, keep in mind that at the end of the movie, after his plan to use his robot to make himself look like a hero (by using a remote to control the robot while he pretends to fight it) is foiled by the Incredibles and Frozone, he tries to kidnap baby Jack-Jack. Though his original incarnation from a deleted scene was possibly worse, with it kind of being implied that he was going to kill the infant Violet (he has a line to the captured Bob and Helen that “Supers aren’t supposed to breed”). So, yeah, Syndrome may be a somewhat goofy villain, but that doesn’t mean he’s not a threat, and he brings new meaning to the phrase “From Nobody to Nightmare”.

5.) John Harrison/Kahn (Star Trek Into Darkness)

You really should have let him sleep, Admiral Marcus. If you had, then I would have been able to sleep the night after I first saw this movie. Yeah, this guy is just creepy in general, though there’s one particular moment near the end of the movie that makes him especially terrifying to me. That being when he crushes Admiral Marcus’s head…with his bare hands, while screaming that Marcus should have let him sleep.

4.) Simone, Lena, and Jacques (Scooby Doo on Zombie Island)

If any of you have read my review of the movie these three are from, then you already know why I find them so terrifying, so I won’t  go into too much detail here. Basically, they’re all immortal monsters who turn into horrible cat-human hybrid monsters and have to suck the life force out of living humans in order to stay alive. Jacques is the worst of the three, since when Simone and Lena asked their cat god for the ability to get revenge on the pirates who killed their friends and family, they didn’t know what the actual deal would entail, Jacques knew what he’d have to do to stay immortal. And he happily accepted. Oh, and their victims include not only (nearly) Scooby Doo and Shaggy, but also a pregnant woman. I am not even kidding. Watch the movie for yourself and you’ll see that one of the zombies is a woman who obviously had been pregnant when she was alive. Thanks TVTropes for pointing that out to me, and thank you haunted VHS for making me rewatch the scenes with these three over and over again as a kid. 

3.) Mother Gothel (Tangled)

This spot was particularly difficult to decide, as it was originally being fought over by three different villains: The Other Mother from the movie version of Coraline, Dr. Facilier from The Princess and the Frog and the person who I ultimately chose, Mother Gothel. The reason I picked her is because out of the three, she’s the one who scares me the most, and she’s probably the least frightening when it comes to looks. No, she’s scary on a psychological level. I mean, think about it: she has basically total control over Rupunzel’s life, and she doesn’t have to lift a finger to do it until the end of the movie…which was eighteen years after she first kidnapped Rupenzel as a baby. If being able to control someone for that long with nothing but words isn’t frightening, then I don’t know what is.

2.) The Empty Child (Doctor Who "The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances")

Now, this character isn’t so much a villain as he is a monster (and a rather sympathetic one at that), but that doesn’t make him any less terrifying. He’s essentially a little boy (about four or five years old) named Jamie who was killed when a medical spaceship crashed to earth in World World II era London and was brought back to life by medical nanobots called nanogenes that were stored inside the ship. You’d think this would be a happy event, right? Wrong. Because these nanogenes have never seen a human being before, they don’t actually repair the injuries Jamie sustained (head injury, rips collapsed, cut on his hand), but rather, they just bring him back to life, fusing the gas mask he’d been wearing to his skull. To make it worse, the nanogenes now see the revived Jamie (The Empty Child) as the correct template for what a human should be like, and any person who touches Jamie is slowly and painfully mutated to have the traits of the Empty Child, the same injuries and the gas mask fused to their skull. But the Empty Child isn’t just scary…he’s also the most heart-wrenching entry on this list, for one main reason: he’s literally just a little boy who wants his Mummy. 

1.) Love Machine (Summer Wars)

You may think this guy has a funny name, but trust me, he’s not even close to being a comedic villain. Love Machine is an AI program that was created by a man in Japan called Wabisuke and bought by the United States government, who decided to test the program by unleashing it on Oz, an online world that basically helps control the real world. And what does Love Machine do when it’s in Oz? Not much…besides literally devour other people’s avatars (what they use to interact when using Oz), set a satellite on a crash course with any of over a hundred nuclear power plants around the globe, tried to make the satellite crash onto the home of the family that stopped the plan involving the nuclear power plants, and actually killed people. That’s right. A computer program basically committed murder, by making it so that the doctors of people with health problems wouldn’t know when their patients were having a life threatening attack or episode of some sort.
