And who am I now that I'm not who I was?

Anonymous asked: If you could meet any fictional character from film/tv/book/fic - who would it be, why, and would you want to be YOU or a character in their storyline/universe? Anonymous minds want to know!

I’m sure this answer changes daily, depending on what I’ve just read/watched, but I’d like to meet Bilbo Baggins and spend a month at Bag End. I’d use it as a writing retreat, and have lots of marvelous teas with my host and drink lots of Shire pressed wine!

It would be even better if members of the Company swung by for visits now and again.

But of course, if I went pre-The Hobbit, Bilbo would be unsociable and not willing to entertain one of the Big Folk. And if I went after, he would be melencholy. So, perhaps, I would like to go to an AU version of the book where everyone survives the Battle of the Five Armies and Thorin isn’t consumed by the Dragon Sickness?

(But I would want to go drinking with Newt and Hermann from “Pacific Rim”!)

Sympathy for the Daleks
 
 
Lyrics:
What did the Daleks ever do to you?
What makes us so much badder than that meddling doctor… who?
We’re little more than garbage cans that barely reach your knees
With bodies made of tin-foil and some flashing LEDs

We’d like to get to know you better
We think it’d be great
It really means “I love you” when we say *EXTERMINATE*


What is your big problem with the dark lords of the Sith?
Those pesky rebel Jedis like to spread this hurtful myth
The Force Choke and the Deathstar were unfortunate mistakes
And the footage of the Ewok thing was obviously faked

We’re really not so bad you know
We’re good guys, through and through
And if you search your feelings, you will know it to be true


We Cylons are misunderstood, it’s a fact you can’t deny
We’re just another human scheme gone terribly awry
You built a master-race of robots, for to be your slaves
And somehow you assumed we’d acquiesce and we’d behave

But we’re willing to forgive you all
For holding us in thrall
And you can take our word - so say one, so say we all


You hate the Borg collective; have you stopped to question why?
Just ‘cause we assimilated some uptight, bald British guy?
Our story-lines made Voyager an unexpected hit
And do we even need to bring up Jeri Ryan’s *ahem* …implants?

We’re the best addition to the franchise since Wrath of Khan
Resistance isn’t futile, it’s just highly frowned upon


Well the Daleks are cool, the Sith are all right, the Cylons are okay and the Borg are pretty tight.
If you take a look around I think that you’ll come to see, we really are superior, so sing along with me:


Bow down before the one you serve
You’re going to get what you deserve..

In celebration of Fish Fingers and Custard day, I offer up “Sympathy for the Daleks” by the fantastic comedy folk rock band Nerds With Guitars. I have seen them live and they are hilarious in person!

Listen to two more free tracks here, and their hit “There’s An App For That” below.
