[ObMeme] ... (huh?)

The meme is:

Comment with the name of a female character and I'll tell you why I love her. In return, you can do the same in your journal [if you want].

(via inkstone and yhlee, and if someone can explain why it's called what it's called, I'll write you drabble-y flashfic ... .)

I don't think that's the meme title so much as a popular entry header for memes.

Harriet Vane.

I love how she won't let herself take the easy way out of things.

I love her for her ability to see humor - even at her own expense - in even the worst situations ("Take up knitting snake cozies?"), and for her personal sense of honor and loyalty to her friends.

(And she is one of my very favorite characters ever, too!)

What, the "ObMeme" part? That's classic old-school jargon for "obligatory" -- on newsgroups/listservs where conversations started to drift off-target, folks would often throw in a brief "Ob-----" note about something more directly topical for the group in question.

Thanks for the answer! What no female person for you? (Even Shenhua?) What do you want me to flashfic, instead?

Yaone!

Jan. 30th, 2010 09:24 pm (UTC)

I think you know the answer to this ... I didn't love Yaone very much at first, but when she and Doku defied Kou's orders and came after him, I loved that she had overcome her need to obey and her caution for the sake of a person she loved - even though it was that same person's orders.

(That's actually a theme that C.J. Cherryh likes - the good servant who proves how good s/he is by defying orders or conditioning to do what really needs doing.)

Kannan.

Tremaine.

LOL ... I knew that if I posted this, someone would come up with someone that I would have trouble loving ... .

I love Kannan for .... her decisiveness!

More whole-heartedly, I love Tremaine for her ability to look past her own issues and take an active and productive interest in other people's problems. And also for her snark.

Revy ^__^

and I don't remember if you're into fullmetal alchemist, but if you are, Riza Hawkeye. ^__^

(Not FMA, no. I can recognize a picture of Riza, but that's about it.)

I love Revy because she's violent id unleashed in a way female characters usually aren't, and also I love her grudging, dawning sense of connection to Rock.

Anayama Kosuke

Kosuke!

I love how she is cheerfully serene almost all the time, carrying out her duties with quiet competence, and yet feels things so deeply at the heart.

(Did you see that in the 35/36 omake, sensei had a biography for Kosuke? But it made no sense, timeline-wise, because we see Kosuke at about age 12 or 13 in "Dragon of the Blue Sky" ... I have my own biography for her, which I should write up sometime.)

As I recall, you know Gravi and didn't mind it until you met the panda. So Mizuki, Eiri's editor.

I still find it ironic that Gravitation, a BL manga, has more, better, and stronger female characters than Saiyuki.

I have other Gravi characters to suggest if that doesn't work for you.

Owww ... I feel like a complete heel, but I can't remember anyone from Gravi well enough to talk about them but Shuichi, Eiri, and Hiroshi.

I love that despite her situation and life experience, she can still be persuaded to take a chance on the side of good.
