Happy Friday, and it's time for the new [livejournal.com profile] fannish5, which is this week: "Who are your five favorite sidekicks?"

Where to begin?

Pain and Panic--Disney's Hercules: The Movie. They so totally go together, and you can't really have one without the other. I love these little guys. They are Hades' foils as well as his sidekicks. And they're funny. "If... If is good."

Faithful/Pounce--Tamora Pierce's Tortall Books. What can I say? He's snarky, speaks his mind, and loves his girls. How can you not love a cat that yowls at the Goddess herself because he thinks She scared Alanna (She totally did). Plus he's way smart, and is aloof, as all cats must be. In conclusion: Faithful Rules. 'nuff said.

Sailor Uranus--Sailor Moon. If any of the Outer Senshi could be considered "sidekicks" to Sailor Moon, Uranus would be my favorite. She makes no bones about the fact that for the most part, she doesn't like the Inners or their methods, and she thinks she can do it better. For the most part, she's right. Though difficult to get along with, she is intensely loyal to all those she cares about, and I adore her.

R2-D2--Star Wars. You don't usually know what he's saying, but you can be pretty sure it's not very nice (can you sense a theme?). R2 is helpful and smart, and he does what he thinks is right, no matter what others tell him to do. Who wouldn't love this little Astromech?

Willow Rosenberg--Buffy. I have always loved Willow. She's awkward but funny, and she cares a great deal about the people around her. True, she may have tweaked a little after Tara died (wouldn't you if your lover was shot in front of you?), but she evened out--thanks to Xander--and became a better person and witch for it.

Sidekicks are so cool. ::smiles happily::

In response to this week's [livejournal.com profile] fannish5:

Name five totally self-indulgent story ideas. (The fanfic you would write if you didn't care if you had an audience and also had no shame.)

1) Fandom: Disney's Hercules--A Meg-centric fic focusing on the difficulty of her decisions while she is serving Hades. It would be introspective, and angsty as all get-out. And might not even mention Wonderboy, because it's more about her and the whole "how did I get here, and what am I doing" kind of thing.

2) Fandom: Desperate Housewives--A fic focusing on the growing friendship of Carlos and Gabi after their divorce. How despite all the anger and bitterness, they really do mean a lot to each other, even though they will never be what they once were.

3) Fandom: Tamora Pierce's Tortall--Something about Taybur. I would like to write a fic about him and his relationship with Dunevon. I think he makes a really wonderful father figure for the young king, and he cares for him more than anyone else ever has or ever will. Plus it has the added benefit of being utterly heartbreaking in the resolution, which, naturally, I would include as a sort of postlude to the fic.

4) Fandom: Wicked (musical)--I would like to write a Glinda fic about her life at the end of the play. As far as she knows, everyone she has ever loved is dead, and I would like to explore how that affects her as a person, and as a ruler.

5) Fandom: Grey's Anatomy--After this week's episode, I think I would really like to explore the Addison/Alex dynamic, and how it came to be. I mean, really. This is the Vanilla Latte OTP, and I went in three seconds from WTF??!! to SQUEEEEEEE!! It has a crack potential that I had never considered, and really liked.

And that is all. These are all fandoms I never touch, because... I just don't. I don't really feel there's enough of an audience, or that i could to them justice. So these are my shameless if-I-had-no-audience fics.

Title: A Present for the Baby
Author: Zoe-chan
Rating: PG
Pairing(s): None. Implies L/J
Challenge: Completed in response to a challenge leveled at me by Arnica, which reads as follows:

write me a story of no less than 1 paragraph and no more than three involving the words splinter, snowshoes and the phrase 'you have three seconds to get that out of there or I cut it off'

I hope I have succeeded. I did stretch the defenition of three paragraphs. The block of dialogue in the middle counts as one, and the last bit of dialogue does not count at all.
Notes: Fluffy goodness.
