Kathryn Janeway, of course. Hot and tough and full of the sexiness of power -- what's not to want? It's not her fault that the show's writers turned her into someone erratic and neurotic and sexless. Poor things, they just didn't know where to boldly go with a genuinely powerful woman like Captain J.

 Since I was like 10 when I was super into Star Trek Next Gen, I always wanted to be Captain Picard's Granddaughter. Or else Wesley Crusher's Girlfriend. 

Now though...I don't know. O'hura was pretty hot in the newest ST movie, and she got to kiss Zachary Quinto, which is ALWAYS a plus. And I can say that because my husband has a striking resemblance to Mr. Quinto. (So much so that I had nightmares that G was really Sylar.)

Spock. He's an aloof, logical smart-ass with a natural affinity for small, furry creatures. Dude, all I need are the ears. Unlike Spock, however, I've mastered the art of the "colorful metaphor." The hell I have.

McCoy may be my favorite character (gentle, warm-hearted, can go from 0 to righteous indignation in 6 seconds, "I'm a doctor, not a coal miner!"), but Spock is most like me.

Make dreams. Make crazy dreams, it doesn't matter.. make dreams that seem impossible to others, that seem unlikely to happen with the current conditions.. it doesn't matter. Believe in your dreams with all your heart. Try to achieve them.. You'll definitely will.

In all seriousness, I really need to up my geek cred and watch more Star Trek. I only have seen the original series but I've forgotten it since I was LITTLE when I watched it. So I couldn't really answer this question any better...

This is just...so, so silly. But it's the first thing that popped into my head. I had a Dutch lover. And every time I ride <i>It's A Small World</i> at Disneyland and we pass the stupid section with the Dutch kids clacking their wooden shoes to the music I think of him. How stupid is that???

Excellent question. There was a guy named John Fitzgerald Byers, though most people just called him "Mister."

There was also Commander Garen Bead, but I think he's busy back on his homeworld.

Then there was a con man named Leo Walsh...

I am speaking of course of Star Trek: Defiant, which you can find by going to pendantaudio.com/defiant.php. Check it out, though I think most of my LJ friends do anyway.  =P

Side note... I invented a first name for Commander Bead, since he wasn't given one. I doubt he'll be back, so there's no need to worry about canon or the like. I shall do what I please! Unless the Pandaman shuts it down. Which he has the right to.

Actually, no. Not a song. What relationship in my life had a special SONG? None. Ever. It's a stupid idea. Whoever thought of that concept needs to be shot.

I can't bring myself to actually play a few games, though. LOL, asshole. Yeah, I find it particularly hilarious that playing a few games brings memories of a certain someone back into my mind, whether I let 'em show or not is different. I never was able to play Zelda II anyway because I suck at platformers, but ever since that breakup, I've been even less inclined to try. I do love the story and the music for that game, I'll admit. Brentalfloss was right when he said "It's called Death Mountain because you will die" y'know. I've watched Eric play it. Isn't that wonderful? I can't play Zelda I too much because I think of my dad when I do, and that makes me mentally break down. I can't play Zelda II anymore because all I hear is someone saying "yeah I played that game so much I can beat it in four hours"... and I haven't tried playing Zelda: LttP since I saw my dad last because just looking at the graphics for that game makes me wanna crawl into a hole and never come out. Even though it's my favorite game EVERRR. Who understands me? Not even me. Link was my hero when I was a kid, y'know. Thanks for ruining it for me, assholes. XD I may say that but I still just find it hilarious that it even bothers me, when it shouldn't. Yay, I'm laughing at my own patheticness! That's so meta, I wanna know why my head hasn't exploded yet.

Other games I find it hard to play...

none, really. *shrug*

If Eric were to leave me, I think the game that would break my heart the most to play would be Suikoden. He got me into it when I thought I wasn't going to like it, and introduced me to the character who's death scene has made me weep the most out of all of the games I've ever played. (Note that I actually cried at Lucia's goodbye in Lunar 2, yes, but I'm talking about a death here. Not a particularly heart wrenching scene, because Lucia's goodbye is the one that always hits me the hardest.) Gremio's such a big part of my fandom now that when Eric asked me if I could have any game character made into a plushie this time, I said Gremio without hesitation. I didn't say Kratos. I said Gremio. Hell, I tear up when I hear the "Theme of Sadness" Guitar version. Much like with Suzuricho, my reasoning is that it hurts not having them with me in the game.

Thinking about this, I realize that I can cry over a video game character's death, but when someone asks me if someone close to me would die how I would react, I have no idea.

I strayed so far from the topic. xD

I'd totally be TOS Spock. Psychological turmoil stemming from years of conflict in my tiny biracial heart? Was totally my bag for the first 18-20 years of life. Emotional stunted and a complete inability to effectually communicate my feelings? Ohhh yeah.

Me and Spock are totally peas in a pod and not necessarily in the best way. Although we've also got that sarcastic, I-will-cut-you thing going on and that's pretty freakin' sweet. Spock's a follower not a leader, like me (and not a bad trait, I don't think). Smart, cool headed and able to cope in a crisis. I want him on my team during dodgeball. So maybe it's not so bad identifying solely with the half Vulcan, half human freakazoid :D.

Думаю нечего стыдиться, что ты что-то смотришь. Ну посмотрел Дом-2 пару раз.Порадовался за Влада Кодони, и что? Главное, что бы то что ты смотришь (хотя черт знает что можно смотреть по ТВ, кроме фильмов...) не настраивало тебя как делать, а ты сам выбирал что смотреть. А так как на Тв не ты рулишь, порой приходится смотреть то, чем кормят. Растущая молодежь на телеке будет видеть все иначе,чем мы, воспитанные чебурашкой и утренним сериалом про черепашек нинзя.

 A  Starfleet officer assigned to Deep Space Nine and The Defiant.    Because that station would be a great place to live, with all the different races visiting it, and of course all those gorgeous Bajoran Women.  And the  Defiant kicks ass, it's a great ship, much cooler than the Enterprise, and probably Voyager too.  Serving on it would be an absolute blast, especially in The Dominion War.  Would be particularly cool, if I got to rise through the ranks and got  command her.

I don't recall any song that remind me of ex-partners, but an ex-friend of mine is so similar to Love, Love, Kiss, Kiss by Alkaline Trio. The song reminds me of them each and everytime I hear it, and it makes me want to punch myself for even ever being friends with someone like that. Oh well... Que Sera, Sera.

Q. I would rather enjoy being a god - like entity and using the universe as my own personal plaything. I would spend more time making my own worlds and universes, though. Q is the one with infinite power and eternal life so who else would be better?

If I am to choose a member of an Enterprise crew, that would be a little more difficult. Data or Spock would be my first choices. Data does not age - that is a plus - but I would not carry on his quest to be like humans.

I have to answer this one. No, no ONE song in particular, but there IS a BAND. I REALLY can't listen to U2, even a decade later, because of Derek. U2 was his favorite band and he was obsessed with them and our song was one of theirs. And even though I don't really remember mentally all the bad shit that happened in that relationship, viscerally I do when I hear any song from that band. I just tense up and I HAVE to change the station. I just refuse to listen to them unless forced to, like when in a restaurant. But I'll try to zone out if I can. That relationship was hell. Since I already wrote a long post about some of my history I'll save this story for later, too :).

Actually I'm doing ok on hearing the song and not having it mean anything to me anymore but the song was Nothing Else Matters by Metallica.

My ex(I wouldn't even call him that but I don't know what else to call him since everything we had was based on a lie)said that song was our song but instead I guess he used it for his current wife who he was cheating on me with for an entire year but he lacked the balls to tell me straight up he was seeing someone else or to end our relationship(I guess thats what you call it)permanantly and keep it ended.

Nowadays I consider it a good song by an awesome band but for a long time I was devistated but in the end it made me a stronger person,I'm more guarded now but I'm still here so I consider that a damn good victory.

I just hope he grew up and treats his wife better than he ever treated me,I would hate for someone else to go through the bullshit I went through.

Geez if you want someone else,grow some balls and end it yourself instead of cheating and stringing a girl along,makes you out to be a major pussy.Be a man and step up to the plate.

It's a yes and a no. There are plenty of songs and bands that remind me waaaay too much of ex-girlfriends but in all those cases the songs or bands were up in my favorites and I'll be damned if I'd let nostalgia take favorite bands away from me. Examples include:

What Goes Around Comes Around - Catch 22 (Probably wins the award cause it spawned a nickname for her)
The Party's Crashing Us - Of Montreal
Book of Love - Magnetic Fields
69 Love Songs - Magnetic Fields (pretty much the whole first album)
Hard to Impress - Catch 22
Chin up - Catch 22
Iris - Goo Goo Dolls
By the way they dance - Jump Little Children
Squirrel Nut Zippers
I'm Waking up to Us - Belle & Sebastian
Pain (The Band)
Do you Still Hate Me - Jawbreaker
Heaven is a Half-pipe - OPM (HAH almost forgot that one. It's the most nonsensical thing ever)

Plenty of other songs and bands but that's a quick off the top of my head. Some were decided while dating some were assigned post end. Bonus points if you read this and go oh hey that's me...

A part of me is giggling about the idea of making a mixtape out of this...

I could also give another dozen examples of songs that remind me of old friends.

If you were in solitary confinement for the rest of your life, and you discovered a cockroach in your room, would you kill it or make it your friend?

I would love and cuddle that cockroach. I'd probably end up going quickly insane because I would stress over the cockroach's well being. I would worry about feeding it. I'd worry about it's comfort. I'd worry about it leaving me. I'd feel bad for using impersonal genderless pronouns like "it" because really, how do you tell a cockroach's gender? I'd probably eventually end up feeling bad that the cockroach was stuck in solitary with me and end up plotting way that it (he, she?!) could escape. Huh, now that I think about it, maybe I should just let the poor little guy go in the first place?

Anything by Evanescence reminds me of David, particularly how unabashedly in love he was with Amy Lee. I no longer believe in monogamy (at least not the super strict, you can't even look at anyone else kind), but I'd still say that the boyfriend should use a bit of tact when talking about liking a girl that's not his gf, and at least do so in a way that doesn't suggest he'd rather get with the other girl. His gf should not feel jealous or threatened. Depending on her self esteem (and mine was pathetically low at the time; hence why I got with him in the first place), she'll still feel a bit uncomfortable. But this alone didn't hurt me as much as the fact that he had no intention of being exclusive to me at all, and didn't think it necessary to hide that fact or apologize for it, despite expecting me to be exclusive to him (ahhh the fun and fucked up little world of lifestyle BDSM). So this was just yet another example of his true nature, and another effigy for me to not only despise, but use to hurt myself even further, emotionally. I've never liked Amy Lee or her shitty band, never thought she was pretty, but she was obviously better than me, if she held David's attention longer than I could. Or so my thoughts went.

But thankfully now I'm over him because I am better able to see that relationship for what it really was, and I'm a much different person now, who can only laugh David off as a severely insecure little boy who might have even more problems than herself.

So while Evanescence had made me feel very miserable, now it just makes me roll my eyes and lament on the crappy quality of the music itself.

"Use Somebody" by Kings of Leon. He told me all the time that it was his song for me.. How he could "use someone like me." When I was with him It made me feel good that he felt so highly of me and good to know that he wanted someone like me in his life. But now that I look back it was more so that he USED me for being a kind & forgiving person. As much as I love Kings of Leon I cannot stand to listen to that song.

Meanwhile (from another community):

Top Ten Signs You're a Fundamentalist Christian

10 - You vigorously deny the existence of thousands of gods claimed by other religions, but feel outraged when someone denies the existence of yours.

9 - You feel insulted and "dehumanized" when scientists say that people evolved from other life forms, but you have no problem with the Biblical claim that we were created from dirt.

8 - You laugh at polytheists, but you have no problem believing in a Triune God.

7 - Your face turns purple when you hear of the "atrocities" attributed to Allah, but you don't even flinch when hearing about how God/Jehovah slaughtered all the babies of Egypt in "Exodus" and ordered the elimination of entire ethnic groups in "Joshua" including women, children, and trees!

6 - You laugh at Hindu beliefs that deify humans, and Greek claims about gods sleeping with women, but you have no problem believing that the Holy Spirit impregnated Mary, who then gave birth to a man-god who got killed, came back to life and then ascended into the sky.

5 - You are willing to spend your life looking for little loopholes in the scientifically established age of Earth (few billion years), but you find nothing wrong with believing dates recorded by Bronze Age tribesmen sitting in their tents and guessing that Earth is a few generations old.

4 - You believe that the entire population of this planet with the exception of those who share your beliefs -- though excluding those in all rival sects - will spend Eternity in an infinite Hell of Suffering. And yet consider your religion the most "tolerant" and "loving."

3 - While modern science, history, geology, biology, and physics have failed to convince you otherwise, some idiot rolling around on the floor speaking in "tongues" may be all the evidence you need to "prove" Christianity.

2 - You define 0.01% as a "high success rate" when it comes to answered prayers. You consider that to be evidence that prayer works. And you think that the remaining 99.99% FAILURE was simply the will of God.

1 - You actually know a lot less than many atheists and agnostics do about the Bible, Christianity, and church history - but still call yourself a Christian.

Oh no fair... I don't have an ex-partner.

I do, however have songs that are near and dear to me and others, that I did love, can no longer listen to.

Most notable is Stargazer http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/teaparty/stargazer.html by The Tea Party, I remember hearing it the first time while sitting at home alone, waiting for my ride to the air port and being so taken by the lyrics that I cried. Because it was I needed to hear at the time- all I wanted and I wasn't getting it. Agreeing to take that plane was one of the biggest mistakes in my life and I still have emotional scars from it.

But.

But, I wouldn't be right here, right now, at this very point, if it wasn't for taking that flight, maybe I wouldn't be here at all. God knows how many times I've tried to end it all (even once is too much) but I'm here.

Another song? You And Me http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/cranberries/youandme.html by The Cranberries. I adore that song, but I can't listen to it more then once in a blue moon because it was while listening to that song that I realized I'd been (really) in love for the first time. It's not exactly a happy memory.

Last but not least (although there's probably a dozen more songs) is Light Outside by Wakey!Wakey, again, I'm at an airport, this time returning home after a stressful time, and I'm told one of my favorite cousins had passed away in an accident. I needed to keep my composure, I needed to let somebody that I didn't want to talk to at all, now about it. The last time someone that had meant so much to me (even if we had grown apart) had died was when my father did, so desperate, and with 10 minutes to spare before the plane was ready for boarding, I hit iTunes for a feel-good song to take my mind off of the sheer sadness and Wakey!Wakey's preview was just the beat I needed. I can't listen to that song without thinking of my cousin, or the message behind the song. So that too, is another song I listen to sparingly. Though I'm thankful I can enjoy the song when I'm in a good mood as well as when I'm feeling utterly hopeless.

I was thirteen and he was my first boyfriend. His name was Ron but he hated it. He insisted on being called Zack. No one did, though.
He was a sturdy boy -- not fat at all but he had the promise of becoming a big man -- with red hair. I have a history of Getting Into Trouble With Redheads (of both genders) that predates this lifetime and will probably carry on ad infinitum. His parents were "white trash" and though this made my mother nervous I didn't understand or care. She knew better than to try to keep us apart. Sanctioning but supervising the relationship kept us from sneaking around. He and my girlfriend couldn't stand each other, though, and it was a juggling act to keep them from going at each other with daggers drawn. That was an early lesson in polyamoury that nearly drove me to underage drinking!

Ron's favorite band was Poison and his favorite song was "Every Rose Has It's Thorn." He listened to that tape until it snapped then bought another one. Wash, lather, rinse, repeat. He sang constantly, but only songs by Poison. Attempts to get him into Bon Jovi, Guns-n-Roses, and Metallica failed epically.

His family was weird in ways besides the unkempt dogs, the dilapidated house, the run down trailer, and the illegal crop in the back yard that were the hallmarks of "white trash" in the Ozarks. What made them weird was the way they made sexual jokes about Ron and his nine-year-old sister Brenda. This made no sense and I figured they were just being assholes. I let it all go in one ear and out the other.

Ron and I were together for over a year, I think. For my fourteenth birthday he gave me a heart-shaped necklace with fake rubies that his Mom had bought from Walmart. I wore it constantly. I loved and still love heart-shaped things. I was wearing it the day I finally asked him about the remarks his family was making. He hemmed and hawed for a moment before answering.

"Well, it was her idea..."

Wait!? What?! He was being intimate with his little sister!? And he was blaming it on her?! Oh my gods and ancestors!!! There just aren't enough interobangs or exclamation marks to cover this!!! Ewww doesn't quite cover it, either.

I ripped the necklace from my neck, threw it into the dust at his feet and walked away. It was a melodramatic gesture, but I was an irate fourteen-year-old so maybe I can be forgiven it. I walked toward home, a mile away down a winding dirt road.

Pretty soon I heard his parents' car coming behind me. I didn't want to talk to them. How could they let their son molest their daughter and make jokes about it?! So I melted into the woods. The one thing my father taught me was how to survive in the woods. When I hunkered down and held still there was no way they could see me from the road. I watched them drive further down the road then turn around and go back. I decided I was safer -- and cooler -- in the woods so I stayed there, paralleling the road, ready to duck and freeze if they came back.

They must have called my parents because within half an hour I heard the station wagon. I stepped into view and got into the car when my Dad pulled over. My Mom started in immediately. "Whatever fight you had with Ron, it's rude to just walk off like that..." and so on. I finally decided to risk parental ire and interrupted her. "Um, Mom? Ron's fucking Brenda and his parents are letting it happen."

My Dad slammed on the brakes! I don't know if my Mom's near heart attack was from what I said or the abrupt stop. When I explained what had happened Dad turned around and headed home, rather than take me back to Ron's place to apologize to his parents. My Mom interrogated me on the way back about "how far" Ron and I had gone. Between us there hadn't been anything but kissing and hickeys. My parents and I were both relieved about that.

I don't know if Mom called Family Services. She probably didn't. Ron's family would have known who did it and his Dad would have reacted violently. He was known for being a mean bastard. I do know that as long as I lived in that town -- almost four years after this incident -- the kids of that family never went into foster care even though they should have. My parents' policy of keeping their mouths shut and their heads down was wrong, but at the time they didn't see much choice.

To this day I can't hear Poison songs, especially "Every Rose Has It's Thorn," without bile rising up into my throat.

Is there any song that reminds you so much of an ex-partner that you can't stand to hear it? Details, please.

"Just the way you are" by Bruno Mars. It was a song that "represented" me and my ex-bf. Unfortunately, it was one of those songs that keep repeating on the radio, and now it just drives me nuts. Thank god for i-Pods and rock music.

Would you rather be super-rich or super-smart if you would only be average in the other category?

Possum Kingdom - The Toadies

Adrian and I had already broken up and he had a new girlfriend. A big group of us were going to the movies and I wasn't pleased that he had come along so I sat a bit away from everyone else to sulk. He came over and sat with me. When I went to get up and move he asked me not to. When Misty's dad picked us up in what would now probably be called an SUV and Adrian sat next to me I climbed into the very back. He followed me.

This song calls up a very clear memory of sitting next to the stereo speakers with Adrian's hand on my leg and the dawning realization that we were never going to be able to be anywhere near each other without wanting to fuck. And thus began my stint as "the other woman."

The only song I can think of that would remind me of someone I can't stand would be the Elivis song "You ain't Nothing But A Hound Dog".  That song reminds me of someone here at the place I live because she's so controlling, and she gets uspet if people don't pay any attention to her; she also gets mad if people say things to her that she may take as mean.  Someone like that is definitely not a true friend.

Yeah(wow, I was just thinkin of this the other day haha). There's only 1 song for 1 person in which I originally heard the song and instantly made connections deep down. There is another song which someone else thinks it's for them, but really, at that time, I knew it's what they wanted to hear(pretty obvious when they replied to my liking the lyrics as what did I like about them exactly??) and also at that time, I didn't care about white lies/total honesty even on small things as I thought so what if they think this, how does it hurt me to go along w/ it you know? I've known better since that time and hence have usually been honest about small things. Ok, now back to the details of the original ?(and not the reverse). The song is Ra's(big fan of theirs)













You Are Strong



You are independent and resourceful. You prefer to rely on yourself and not involve others.

You are a rock. There may be a world of chaos swirling around you, but you stay steady.



You may have had a difficult time earlier in life. You are highly sensitive and a little cautious.

You lay the groundwork for months or years before you act. You like to be completely and totally prepared.

I'm a believer by the Monkees. My high school boyfriend said that song desbribed how he felt when he meet me. That he didn't believe in romantic love and then BAM! he meet me and was head over heels.

That guy dumped me two years later for a size two blonde cheerleader.

So I can't bear to listen to that song now. The irony is that the Monkees are a band I listen to when I need to musical pick-me-up. Go figure.

Pretty much any kind of japanese rock. I've gotten a tiny bit back into it but it used to be all I listened to. She introduced me to jrock, some good, some awful that I pretended to love, but now whenever I hear it I think of her so I very, very seldom listen to it anymore. It just puts me in a bad mood. It also reminded me of my weeaboo phase and how I wanted to be a "manga" artist and make "anime" and learn Japanese. LOLOLOL.
