NPR's top 100 SF/F books. Bold if you've read, italicize ones you fully intend to read, underline if it's a book/series you've read part but not all of, strikethrough if you never plan to read.

Final Verdict: 35 Read, 8 intended, 7 Incomplete, and 2 Barred. My batting average, it is low. )

Do you, like the rest of the internet, feel like this list skewed overly old, white, and male? Wondering why Watchmen made the list and Ghost in the Shell and Y:The Last Man didn't, and where the hell A Wrinkle in Time and The Tough Guide to Fantasyland were? Head on over to [personal profile] eruthros's journal, where she's accepting nominations for Fandom's Top 100 SF/F works in all media!

The first five people (in theory) to comment in this post get to request that I write a drabble/ficlet of any pairing/character of their choosing. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level.

and yes, there's a DW and a LJ version of this so five for either one counts.

My Delicious has all my fandoms ever, all of which are fair game; my obsessions at the moment are the Avengers movies (specifically Darcy), Haven, Doctor Who, Misfits, Coffee Prince, and Suits.

Day Three: A Female Character You Hated But Grew to Love

Olivia Dunham, of Fringe

When Fringe first began, I didn't like Olivia Dunham, making me a proud holder of common yet unpopular fannish opinion #42,809,567 (CYUFO #6,043: Yea Verily, Aeneas was a Whinging Prick.). I didn't hate her. That would have required effort. I was bored by her. She embodied everything that was bad about Fringe Season One: her imaginary head-boyfriend was the plot coupon dispenser, her immediate superior was the annoyingly slow information tap Broyles, and her personality was the equivalent of seaside vanilla ice-cream, in that it was cold, flavorless, and unlikely to make a stain on the imagination.

Does this look like a flu you've heard of? Where people's brains come out of their ears? )
