The Original Questions:

1. If you could meet anyone from throughout history, who and why?
Tough question! I’d like to meet Vincent Van Gogh (to see if he really did hate his own work, and to tell him how famous and loved he eventually became) or Ada Lovelace (because she was one of the first women in computing, and well, relevant).

Vincent and the Doctor

2. What is your favorite book and why?
Impossible to answer. I love too many books to even narrow this down slightly… I’m gunna have to cheat and give you a little list.
War Horse: absolutely broke my heart. Such a brilliant idea to narrate through the horses of the war, and gave the war a kind of innocence through the horse’s eyes.
The Hunger Games trilogy: the second trilogy I ever read, and arguably the books that sparked (more like reignited) my obsession for reading. Katniss is badass, and the futuristic war zone is epic.
Fahrenheit 451: such a good idea for a book. I couldn’t put it down, and it’s thought of as a favourite since.
1984: a society that is easily, and terrifyingly, easy to relate to. It’s such an interesting book.

3. Who is your favorite fiction character from any medium and why?
Another tough question… I’m going to have to go with the Doctor. My doctor, the 11th Doctor. Close behind would be Crowley from Supernatural, because how can you not love a psychotic, mean king of hell who has a soft spot for Dean like everyone else on the planet?

Kat’s Questions:

1. If you could be a character in any fictional story of your choosing (book/TV/movie/comics/etc.), where would you want to go?
Tamriel (Skyrim’s fictional, fantasy world) would be pretty cool…. I’m sure the dragons wouldn’t be an issue, because I’d be kick-ass Dragonborn, of course.

2. What’s a song that always gets you in a good mood?
Anything upbeat by ELO. My favourites!

3. Did you ever consider going to a Comic Con? If yes/no, why? Would you dress up as someone else?
Yeah, of course! Being geeky is like being in a giant family of people who understand. I would dress up, but I’m not sure what as! I have a hard enough time thinking of a Halloween costume – this year I missed a party, because I got too irritated thinking of something to wear!

Nominees:

I have yet to accumulate a good selection of bookish blogs, and I think this award is very bookish!

Instead, how about if you have a particularly interesting answer to any of the above questions you let me know in the comments! Yey, sharing!

      • Yes! Me too. I consider the first season as it’s own little bubble. It’s more like a series of individual horror episodes. It’s not until later on we get a big old juicy story line 😀

      • Definitely…I know you’ll be behind in current episodes somewhat (with it being a foreign broadcast), so I won’t say anything else… But I think some of the “middle” seasons are just plain some of the best sci-fi/fantasy TV in the past decade, period.

      • I completely agree. It’s one of the best (and if I wasn’t so in love with Doctor Who I’d say THE best) series I’ve ever watched.
        We get quite quick downloads for the foreign showings in England, so we have the two most recent episodes ready to watch. Just been a bit busy. CANNOT wait though!

      • Yeah, the return of Doctor Who has made it such a big thing, and not only rejuveniated but also increased its following…I’m a huge fan of Doctors 9 and 10 myself, so if I had to say which was better (purely in terms of sci-fi/fantasy TV — DW or Supernatural), I don’t think I could.

      • He was my first Doctor, as I never watched any of the older series when I was a kid. That always creates a special fondness. But I really think the character/story arcs were at their peak around 2005-2007.
        Eccleston really put it best in his final scene: “Rose Tyler…you were fantastic. And you know what? So was I!”

      • My first husband had grown up watching Tom Baker, Sylvester McCoy, and the made-for-TV movies in the 80s and 90s. So I was aware of some of the backstory prior to Eccleston. Still, I didn’t officially become a fan till NuWho. 🙂

      • It’s been a long time since I watched season’s 6 and 7! I’m nearly there though. Almost ending a re-watch of season 5, and I’m looking forward to being reminded.
        And I agree. I completely love the Men of Letters story line, and I’m really, really enjoying the new series (series 11) too!

      • The jury’s still out for me on the newest episodes. I *love* Rowena — she is definitely the villain you love to hate! And the actress is terrific. A great match for Crowley (Mr. Sheppard’s caliber of acting) too.
        Some of the “just a hunt” episodes in recent years have been weak for me. I thought the one told from the point of view of the Impala was brilliant, though. 🙂
