1. Leave a comment to this post - specifically saying that you would like a letter.
2. I will give you a letter.
3. Post the names of five fictional characters whose names begin with that letter, and your thoughts on each. The characters can be from books, movies, or TV shows.


Yanked from [livejournal.com profile] canadiandiamond, who gave me D! Apparently I'm on a vampire kick so most of these will be vampires. Either that or people love to name vampires using the letter "D."

1. Danica Talos (Blade Trinity)- One of the main bad guys. I found her to be refreshing compared to most female vampires. She doesn't really fit the overly sexualized stereotype (though having Parker Posey in the role ensures that she doesn't since she is the embodiment of quirky indie characters). She's just delightfully evil and definitely fits into her role as 'the boss' quite well. Parker Posey gives her a lot of gravitas. Now Dracula on the other hand...

2. Dracula (Blade Trinity)-What fresh hell is this? I did not like Blade Trinity's portrayal of Dracula at all. To me Dracula is supposed to be this sleek predator and they made him the jock you see in high school grunting and cursing and having pissing contests with the main character. He's supposed to be wise and cunning and the progenitor of the race, never had to evolve, blah blah blah. I just don't see it. He's Dracula in title only. He could be just your standard old vampire. There are others that incited more fear in the Blade series such as...

3. Deacon Frost (Blade)- Deacon Frost. He doesn't give a shit. Cavalier, determined, and entitled, Deacon Frost is one of the better examples of vampire in the Blade series. I could see people being truly afraid of him. He's a predator. He knows how to get things done through pawns or just doing it himself. His attempt to attain power was pretty clever. He had a driving force to get what he wanted. If there was a model to base Dracula off of it should've been him. A similar type of personality trait is used for...

4. Damon Salvatore (The Vampire Diaries)- Vampires in love. Ah. Damon is an asshole and he knows it and, like Deacon he doesn't give a shit. Or at least he used to. But then he found love and etc. so he's trying to redeem himself and blah blah. All annoyances to his character aside I find Damon to be an interesting character nonetheless at least on the surface. He's a monster because his brother made him a monster because he didn't want to be alone so he embraced that dark side. He has little remorse and is often the voice of blunt logic in most situations, saying what most won't and are afraid to say. The main problem I have with the character is how other people react to him. He has murdered DOZENS of people and the human character ignores that. It'd be one thing if he showed remorse but he doesn't. He keeps doing it and she acts indignant for half the episode and then forgets it ever happened. I realize he's a main character and they're trying to keep him around but it drives me nuts.

The final character is not vampire but kills them to the sweet melodies of Classic Rock...

5. Dean Winchester (Supernatural )- I find Dean Winchester to be a wonderful character, though I think he wouldn't be half as well written had it not been for Jensen Ackles' performance (there are a few clunkers of episodes). Dean is one of my favorite characters due to his complexity. He's an older brother, a hunter, a savior, and a human being. He's incredibly well rounded for a fictional character stuck in the middle of monster central. I'm not a fan of the last few seasons but the first 3 or 4 were great: just two brothers, in a car, fighting monsters.

Three Dragons, y'all.

I am the Dragon Queen. Or something.

I wonder if it would be trite to call the Larry, Curly, and Moe...

(Anyway, thanks very much to Anonymous!)
