Your result for The Doctor Who Companion Test...

Romana II

You are Romana II. While you still retain all your knowledge from the Academy, your time spent traveling with The Doctor has mellowed you a bit, and you and The Doctor now get along quite well. The Doctor also greatly enjoys your company - you're smart enough to keep up with him, but are no longer the brash young know-it-all of your previous incarnation.

Unfortunately, all that mellowing has also caused you to become a bit more dependent upon The Doctor than you might like - you seem to be getting captured by monsters more and more these days. Still, you know how to enjoy yourself, and will probably stick around for the time being.

If you see this, post a poem in your journal.

He is that fallen lance that lies as hurled,
That lies unlifted now, come dew, come rust,
But still lies pointed as it plowed the dust.
If we who sight along it round the world,
See nothing worthy to have been its mark,
It is because like men we look too near,
Forgetting that as fitted to the sphere,
Our missiles always make too short an arc.
They fall, they rip the grass, they intersect
The curve of earth, and striking, break their own;
They make us cringe for metal-point on stone.
But this we know, the obstacle that checked
And tripped the body, shot the spirit on
Further than target ever showed or shone.

A Soldier, Robert Frost

You are Farmer Ted from 16 Candles!
Let’s face it you are a nerd, but an endearing one. Because you are always trying to improve yourself socially you are able to do crazy stuff that most nerds would only dream of, like driving the hottest girl in school home without a license, while she tries to feed you birth control pills.

1- Favorite fictional male protagonist?

Now, see, here I thought that this was going to be easy because there aren't so many guys I can identify with. That's not to say I don't adore the heroes of my fandoms, but I'm talking on a deeper level. I tend to do a sort of gender role reversal and see men as the love interests for the female characters I like and while I can recognize and appreciate the more complex aspects of their personalities, I never feel as close to them as I do the women. But then this question made me realize there are actually quite a few that I do. I mean, there are Indiana Jones, Han Solo and Luke Skywalker, who kind of helped me shape my thoughts on men at an early age, but there are a few that get even closer to my heart because I'm sort of (but not completely) gender blind when it comes to identifying with them.

So I think it's a tie between Aragorn from Lord of the Rings (Tolkien's brilliant, all the male characters come to life in his work and touch me in a very real and deep way) and Ben from Carnivale because I think he actually comes closest to a male protagonist I can completely identify with.

2- How do you decide which series (film, TV, books) to invest your time and energy into?

I don't think it's a mental process for me; it kind of just happens or it doesn't. I give lots of stuff a try, and some of it sticks, some of it doesn't; I read and watch a lot. If something captures my imagination, I stick with it, sometimes it'll even provide a muse and I'll start getting into it that way, with fanfics and such. But I am extremely open to almost anything so, like I said, it's more instinctual than it is a choice.

3- What notable fandoms have you outgrown?

Only a little while ago, I would have said Star Trek, and even with that, I wouldn't say I'd necessarily outgrown it; it was an odd time in my life and a great transition from teendom into adulthood. I'd never even given sci-fi a thought before and suddenly I was liking this show about a spaceship and alien planets. It was like... an awakening, to be dramatic about it. And then I just kind of... fell out of it. But now [livejournal.com profile] lastwordslinger got me back into it so that's not necessarily true anymore either.

I suppose Heroes, though I could probably just as easily go back to watching that, too. See, I'm extremely loyal; once something creeps into my heart and my imagination, it just never leaves.

4- If you could be in charge of any adaptation (film to tv, tv to film, comic to film, you get the idea), what would you choose?

Ooh, this was a difficult one because my mind works in a very cinematic way when I read and there are books I feel very, very strongly about. I'd love to do an adaptation of Haunting of Hill House, even though there already is a superb movie made from it, I'd love to get the stuff that touched me in there and make it my way. But that's not my choice, and neither is The Shining, another I've thought long and hard about.

Maybe it's because both of those have had various adaptations, some good, some bad, or maybe it's just because this is newer and fresher in my imagination, but ultimately my answer would have to be Stephanie Meyer's The Host. It's so vivid in my mind, exactly what the caves should look like, the composition of the rock, each actor I'd cast. It's going to break my heart when they do make a movie of it; movies of the others have existed since before I was born or close to, but I'm totally fresh with The Host and that makes the feeling stronger.

5- Name one character from any film or TV series where you'd recast the portraying actor, explain why, and provide a new answer!

Padme in the Star Wars prequels. Because Portman just obviously didn't know what to do with it. Granted, it's not the greatest role ever written for a woman, but I do think someone else who had a real idea or feel for the character would have been able to give it a little more 'oomph.' It's tempting to say I'd replace her with Keira Knightly (who, yes, I like) because Lucas "discovered" her for The Phantom Menace to play Portman's double, but I think she would have been a bit young to play older Padme and I do wonder if it's older Padme that I'd recast, because I think Portman does a decent job in TPM. If so, I'd have to say Rose Byrne, who played, again, Padme's handmaiden in AOTC and managed to make a huge impression despite having an almost nonexistent part.

001. What first got you into Merlin?

I was semi-interested from the first time I'd heard the BBC were doing it just because I'm interested in fantasy and the Arthurian myths. I'm really the RenFaire attending, cosplaying Tolkien whilst listening to Loreena McKennitt type, and if you want to take that as a joke you can but it's not too far off. But I'm going to be really shallow because I musn't tell lies and admit that it was Santiago Cabrera's involvement that really got my attention. At first, I was a bit ambivalent because I thought, 'Oh, they're trying to do the modern, hip thing, and it's going to end up like Robin Hood, only not as clever.' And then it was Santiago as Lancelot and I was like, "Where do I sign up?!" Of course, I read the press release wrong at first and thought he was going to be a regular but by the time I'd finally resolved to watch it, they were, like, three episodes in so I didn't have to wait that long to see him and I still hold out hope that they'll add him to the main cast!

002. Why are you so awesome? Your absolute favorite movie of all time is...?

It's in my Jeans. Geddit?! It's funny, mate! God, this is such a reflex response, but it is and has been since I was three years old: Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. Sometimes I really wish I could come up with something more original than that but... there you go.

003. What's the fandom that you never get to talk about?

I've got quite a few actually! The one that comes to mind immediately is Carnivale because I just don't know anyone who's even seen it and the people I tried to talk with when it was still on the air... didn't get me or my ideas at all.

004. What's the historical or fictional figure you most identify with?

I love the Adamses. Not, like, the Addams Family, but John and Abigail and Sam and John Quincy. I love that they were over-educated and pugnacious, that Abigail was very level-headed and often John's touchstone. If I'm being honest, I'm the most like Sam. I was this documentary about the Founding Fathers once that said that Samuel Adams was good at getting revolutions started, he had a sort of incendiary passion, but didn't really have the discipline to follow it through. So, yeah, I can definitely identify with that. I mean, how many of our Founding Fathers were actually physically involved in the Boston Tea Party?! Oh, and Mary Todd Lincoln, because she was completely mental. But so were the Adamses, I guess, just in a different way...

ETA: I just noticed the 'Or Fictional' stipulation, and had to add that I really do identify with Eleanor in Shirley Jackson's Haunting of Hill House more than is healthy or that I ought to admit to, as well as Eowyn from Lord of the Rings, Tolkien's work not necessarily the movies because I felt she was a bit weepy in those for the cold, stoic lady she should be.

005. If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be? Favorite food?

Oh, something totally unoriginal like pizza. I don't really like to eat, to be honest, especially after my mom passed; she used to make the most amazing Greek food from scratch. So I do tell a lie: my favorite food is my mother's dolma, which are stuffed grape vine leaves, I just haven't had them in about five years.

You are The Moon

Hope, expectation, Bright promises.

The Moon is a card of magic and mystery - when prominent you know that nothing is as it seems, particularly when it concerns relationships. All logic is thrown out the window.

The Moon is all about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. This is a card that has to do with sleep, and so with both dreams and nightmares. It is a scary card in that it warns that there might be hidden enemies, tricks and falsehoods. But it should also be remembered that this is a card of great creativity, of powerful magic, primal feelings and intuition. You may be going through a time of emotional and mental trial; if you have any past mental problems, you must be vigilant in taking your medication but avoid drugs or alcohol, as abuse of either will cause them irreparable damage. This time however, can also result in great creativity, psychic powers, visions and insight. You can and should trust your intuition.
