Zoe Washburne

Good choice! I don't appear to have any Zoe icons right now, so have Mal instead?

* why I like them
Because she is tough and good at what she does and doesn't take crap from anyone. And she rocks at deadpan sarcasm--she and Mal are HILARIOUS together.

* why I don’t
This question confuses me, because I do....

* favorite scene/moment
I really like the part at the end of "War Stories" when she and Mal try to pretend they have chemistry and she says, in the most dull voice possible, "Take me, sir."

* brotp
Zoe + Mal, obvs :P

* totally random but possibly awesome non-canon ship
I dunno, I'm pretty happy with Zoe/Wash. Nothing shippy comes to mind, but I am now picturing wonderful crossover crack friendships with either Martha Jones from Doctor Who or Doctor Crusher from TNG. :D

* head canon
I bet she and Wash spend more time satirizing the affairs of the ship than she would ever admit. (Like the time she was in charge and they joked about how Jayne would kill her and take command.)

* unpopular opinion
Uh...nothing comes to mind.

I love that part at the end of War Stories as well! And Mal and Zoe as a brOTP. And I can definitely see your headcanon being the case :)

Rory Williams

From: [identity profile] ladymercury-10.livejournal.com
Yay! I love Rory. :D

* why I like them
Because he's so patient and dependable and kind and tries so hard to do the right thing. And he's afraid a lot, but he just keeps on keeping on.

* why I don’t
This option continues to confuse me. Is this intended to be part of a binary "do/don't" pair? Am I supposed to say what I do like and what I don't about the character? Whatever, confused, moving on now.

* favorite scene/moment
Probably the whole thing with the crying in Roman armor while holding baby Melody.

* brotp
Obviously this is also my OTP, but probably him and Amy. He and Eleventy are fun together, too.

* totally random but possibly awesome non-canon ship
This is a crossover crack ship, but if he weren't with Amy, I think he and Molly Hooper would be the most adorable thing.

* head canon
Related to the above, it is my head canon that Rory went to nursing school at the same place Molly was reading forensic pathology or whatever, and they were great friends. :P

* unpopular opinion
I am less excited by reappearances of RomanSoldier!Rory than most people seem to be (the baby thing notwithstanding).

Rory is amazing ♥

:O Rory/Molly!! I've never thought of that, but now definitely ship it. Even though Rory/Amy are my ultimate OTP, I ship Amy/Sherlock as well (tumblr made me do it!)

Hmmm...Eleven, I suppose?

From: [identity profile] ladymercury-10.livejournal.com
* why I like them
Because he's really clever and also baffled by simple tasks like working an analog screwdriver. He's old and young at the same time, silly and wise, and compassionate and fierce. A lot of contradictory things, I guess. And Matt Smith is adorable.

* why I don’t
But I just said I did....

* favorite scene/moment
Can I pick the entirety of "The Lodger"? If not, then that bit in "Vincent and the Doctor" when he asks if time normally passes so slowly and in the right order.

* brotp
I will watch him hang out with just about anyone, but probably the Ponds.

* totally random but possibly awesome non-canon ship
I do understand the appeal of Eleven/Amy, although I am less fond of it than I used to be as it gets in the way of my Amy/Rory OTP.

* head canon
I like to think the Doctor is fond of math, because he's so smart and it'd probably be really easy for him. Plus a lot of time travel ought to be physics and a lot of physics is math, so. Well, and obviously, because I like math, haha. :P

* unpopular opinion
I didn't get offended by the Doctor calling Amy by her married name (I don't think I noticed, though) or leaving the Ponds behind?

From: [identity profile] giallarhorn.livejournal.com
Amy/Eleven has a lot of appeal just because they have a really good...idk, portrayal of their relationship? Like, Karen Gillan and Matt Smith are hilarious together off screen, so I guess it kind of carries over?

I wasn't too bothered by dropping the Ponds off- but it was a lot of other factors that led to it/occurred after that made it me have issues with it. Especially given how we The God Complex/The Girl Who Waited set up a perfect arc to actually have the Ponds leave on their own volition, but it never gets mentioned or brought up again =/

I can definitely see the appeal. :D I'm just generally a canon shipper, and when you give me as nice a canon ship as Amy/Rory, I will run with it. I have also been known to read Amy/Rory/Eleven fic. :P

I think there is some fanon that they'd been talking about it either before that or because of it. That would have been a more natural ending, but oh goodness I don't know if I'd ever have stopped crying. That would have been such an upsetting thing to end on. I was sad when they left, but I just wanted them to have a friendly goodbye, so I was okay with it.

Okay, how about River Song?

From: [identity profile] ladymercury-10.livejournal.com
* why I like them
It's always fun when someone pulls the rug from under the Doctor's feet, since he's used to being the cleverest one in the room. And I think she's gotten to be a lot of things that aren't usually coded as fabulous--she's much older than the average heroine, and not so skinny.

* why I don’t
Is this box for things I don't like about the character? I don't really like how selfish younger River is. I kind of rolled my eyes a lot over the whole "I broke time for you" thing, although to be fair I am in general bored with that trope.

* favorite scene/moment
The part where she makes him pick her up out of space, knocks him over, hangs her heels on the TARDIS, lands correctly, and then drags him into her Weeping Angel mission is pretty hilarious/fantastic. Even Amy is impressed.

* brotp
I think she and Amy would have some good buddy comedy moments if they ever got to hang out for more than five minutes, and if they weren't dealing with all the AHHH SEPARATED FAMILY angst. I expect Amy and Mels probably got into some hilarious shenanigans as kids.

* totally random but possibly awesome non-canon ship
I agree with your earlier sentiment and imagine River and Romana would have no end of fun times, whether in a shippy way or just kicking around together.

* head canon
I bet she wrote ridiculous academic fanfiction. Like, I don't know, the 51st Century version of Edison/Tesla hatesex (please tell me this does not actually exist. I am not looking) or something really awful like that.

* unpopular opinion
I don't think Doctor/River is that great of a ship anymore, although I used to be on board. I don't care that much, though, because I am a canon shipper, generally, and because there's still some good fic for it (like yours :P).

Aw, thanks. And Oh goodness, I share much of your sentiment, but River/Doctor in fic is like, the only het pairing I care about. Seriously! I am NOT a babyfic person at all... AT ALL... unless said fic is River/Doctor babyfic. Then I turn into a shmoopy mess. One of these days I'm going to write up a whole universe based on River/Doctor mpreg, you know.

You might like EasyThereTyger's "Pack Up the Moon and Dismantle the Sun." It's still a WIP but worth reading; it's a poignant take on River's character from later on, as she earns her pardon from the Church.

academic fanfiction, LOL! Yes, yes, I could see her doing this.

Hahahaha oh dear.

I think I have seen that one but not read it. I don't usually read long WIPs because I am impatient and have a short attention span. (But I can read regular-size books, go figure....)

Haha she probably did it to antagonize her advisor, too. Left it lying around in offices/libraries/other embarrassing places on purpose.

Ah, it would likely be a series of vignettes. So a universe but in standalones and snapshots :)
