So. This journal has been profoundly dead lately, because, well, life, the universe, and everything got in the way of fandom. However! I want it to be un-dead, or even resurrected, if you will. To that end, I'm doing the Female Character Meme that's been making the rounds, and because I'm a masochist, I'm not letting myself repeat a fandom. Thirty days, thirty fandoms, (more than) thirty kick-ass women. Let's begin.

Day One: Favorite Lead Female Character

CJ Cregg, ready to slay Republicans with a mere eyebrow.

C.J. Cregg, of The West Wing

When I saw the prompt for today, my first thought was “Are you sure you wouldn't rather have me do something easier and less heartless, like, say, kill a kitten?” Because I am very bad at picking favorites, and I have a LOT of favorite female leads. (This will become apparent later on.) So I decided to go not just for my favorite, but also for my aspiration, to look at the character I show to my younger female friends and relations as a role model; in short, when I was a wee baby Pax, who did I want to be when I grew up? And then C.J. Cregg waltzed in on legs that go to Canada and took over in a New York minute whilst making a better geography-related witty remark than I just did.

One in forty American men wear women's clothing and we've had well over forty presidents. I'm just saying, one of these guys was dancing around the Oval Office in a prom dress. Now let's get to the bottom of that. )

The rest of the days, should you be interested. )
