An old favorite, from [ profile] lostinapapercup:

Leave a comment here and I'll pick five of your icons for you to explain, describe, or otherwise comment on.

And I thought this was adorable, so I'm stealing it from [ profile] wanderlustlover:

Leave a ship here that I know, any ship (canon or AU, realized or unrealized), and I will tell you my opinion on:

who is the big spoon/little spoon
what is their favorite non-sexual activity
who uses all the hot water in the morning
what they order from take out
what is the most trivial thing they fight over
who does most of the cleaning
what has a season pass in their DVR
who controls the netflix queue
who calls up the super/landlord when the heat’s not working
who steals the blankets
who leaves their stuff around
who remembers to buy the milk
who remembers anniversaries

Ask one, ask both, put a different meme in the comments, whatever.  I just feel like a little interaction.

I'll do both!

How about Anne/Gilbert? (I'm just amused by the idea of those two having a Netflix queue.)

Why the hell not, right?

How about...

Aww. Kate is adorable sometimes.

Hah! Let's see.

who is the big spoon/little spoon: Gil/Anne. He's all about treasuring and protecting her.
what is their favorite non-sexual activity: It depends on Anne's mood: sometimes it's going for long walks, sometimes it's sitting by the fire talking, sometimes it's him teasing her out of a bad mood, but whatever it is, it's always together.
who uses all the hot water in the morning: Anne. She loses track of the time, daydreaming that she's a nymph in forest glade, bathing in fresh spring water.
what they order from take out: Chinese food. Anne loves the fortune cookies.
what is the most trivial thing they fight over: Gilbert's well-meaning criticisms of Anne's writing.
who does most of the cleaning: Anne, by nature of being home more often, but Gil is neat.
what has a season pass in their DVR: Merlin.
who controls the netflix queue: Anne.
who calls up the super/landlord when the heat’s not working: Gilbert. Anne would, but he knows she'd just fly off the handle at whatever the problem is, before feeling guilty and apologizing with baked goods.
who steals the blankets: Anne, but I doubt Gil minds.
who leaves their stuff around: Neither, they're both fairly neat, though Anne sometimes forgets things when she's daydreaming.
who remembers to buy the milk: Gilbert.
who remembers anniversaries: Gilbert. Anne doesn't forget, but Gil could tell you at any time during the year without thinking about it how long it is until their anniversary and what he's planning to do for it.

I'm late, but your Anne and Gilbert answers have made me feel decidedly warm and fuzzy! I love picturing Anne using up all the hot water and Gilbert planning their anniversaries in advance.

And icons!

This is Morrigan from Dragon Age, which I will pretty much always recommend. I think of it as an RPG built for writers: the characters are rich (and so much fun to listen to as they follow you around!), the world-building is incredible, and the decisions are difficult. While she's not one of my favorite DA characters, she's certainly one of the most memorable. She's the game's Lady Disdain, hard to get to know but rewarding to befriend.

This is Michael Trucco (in character as BSG's Samuel T. Anders) singlehandedly reversing anti-smoking laws. This storyarc is pretty emotionally brutal for Sam, and one of my favorite little incidental canon details is how his character appears to smoke (or at least smoke more) due to stress or unhappiness. And damn if he doesn't look good doing it.

Oh, Lost. Sometimes I loved you. I liked the conflict between Jack and Sawyer, and even though I didn't mind the Sawyer/Kate/Jack love triangle and felt like I understood it, I did enjoy it most when their feelings about women were among the reasons they were clashing and not the reason they were clashing. I like this icon because it kind of sums up the best and worst of their relationship in one playful cap with pretty I-want-to-go-to-there scenery.

Charlotte from Lost in Translation is quite possibly the movie character I've identified with most. I love the melancholy of this scene where she sits in the window and watches the city below.

Look at Kate, so happy and adorable and momentarily unguarded! How often do we get to see smiles like that on Lost characters? This is kind of my default smiley icon.
