Icons pairing

pickwick has passed on this silly idea:

Make a list of all the characters in your icons. (Although you may have more than one icon of a single character, they only go on the list once.) Alphabetize it. Take the first two people on the list; that's your first pairing. Second two people; second pairing. etc.

I have very very few fictional characters on my icons, but the thought of including the non-fictional ones - a somewhat ecletic selection of Albert Einstein, Arsenie Todiraş, Buzz Aldrin, Gerald Ford and Sir Robert Ball - is pretty frightening. So I bring you only three pairings (and yes, I know that even so two of these are historical characters, but they are characters from the TV-show-based-on-the-novel so they are fictional, OK?):

  1. The First Doctor and the Fourth Doctor.

    Hmm. At least if you're in a relationship with yourself, it's with someone you really know well.

    But no, I can't see this one lasting for very long. It breaks all the laws of Time and a few others too.

  2. Jack and Livilla.

    Yes, I can totally see this. Livilla would go with anything powerful and dangerous, and Jack is certainly attracted by the exotic.

    They would have a wild affair, she would poison another couple of husbands (not necessarily her own) out of jealousy, and eventually he would disappear in a puff of time travel leaving her heart-broken. Then he'll come back fifty years later and allow her to be killed by the fairies.

  3. Orac and Sejanus

    I have to say that this takes a little more imagination. I see it as more of a professional partnership than a loving relationship. Sejanus would very much thrill to Orac's advice and conversation at first.

    But eventually he would get irritated by the condescending box of tricks from the future, and would throw it into the Tiber.

Well, that was fun. My first proper excursion into fanfic.

Oh dear - I'd really like to do this meme, because it looks great. But I have way too many icons, and way too many of them are characters. On a fairly conservative estimate of what counts as a 'character', I just totted up 45. Well, I shall just sit back and enjoy other people's efforts, then!

<3 would be the only appropriate response, I think.

i agree on 1 and 2 but adore 3. i think I can hear the splash.

As my icons include the Froglets (of Clangers fame), Brain (of Pinky and the Brain fame) and a dog..., I shall give this particular meme a miss on grounds of taste and sanity.

Yeah, but is the dog real or fictional?
Nov. 25th, 2006 10:15 pm (UTC)
Oh it's real.

So using the dog would be veering towards furry fic (or whatever) and while fanfic isn't really my cup of tea, the thought of furryfic really scares me.

(Just a thought though, Pinky and the Brain fanfic must be easy, because you know how it's going to end)
