rediscovering creativity

OK, so I stole the subject line from the title of a course we run at work, whatever.
In light of yesterday's epic software fail (and to keep myself from buying Painter 11 just because Corel sent me a coupon), I am cleaning up my bedroom and clearing my drafting table at last. I hope to finish either my Amidala art or another Star Wars piece in Prismacolor, for display at the art show.

Now, keeping in mind my love of Sith and my general disdain for Jedi (Qui-Gon excepted!), and the fact that I am a much bigger fan of muppets than of CGI, what should I draw? I thought about doing something with the doomed romance between Padme and Anakin, or perhaps something to parallel the Amidala & Leia art featuring Obi Wan and infant Luke? Or maybe I need to skip ahead to the Expanded Universe and draw Luke as a husband and father? Maybe there should be a duel between an unnamed Sith person and a Jedi who is a secondary or extra character in one of the films. (Maybe I should watch the Clone Wars animated stuff so I have new characters to play with...)

I am not totally committed to Star Wars to fill out my panel, either. There are many broadly appealing fandoms I could try. And I do intend to display as many of my Avatar: The Last Airbender pieces as I can. Hmmm. Perhaps a poll.

it's a meme!

I will write a drabble for the first few commenters to request one. In return, they have to post this in their journal (if they want). You may request the character and/or the pair for the following fandoms: BBC's Merlin, Harry Potter, Avatar: The Last Airbender
I'll write any pairing, but I reserve the right to choose the rating. :)

Not setting a firm number, but if I get overwhelmed with prompts (hahaha) I'll edit to close the meme.

Top 5 Characters, any fandom

Continuing the Top 5 Meme:
Well, if this were a list of characters in any ONE fandom, I would be listing from Babylon 5, because that show has a lot of favorites.  Just so you know.  ;)  Also, this is one of those lists that may change at any moment, for random reasons. I remember great characters all the time, and my obsessions change with fandoms. In fact, I could rewrite it right now... but I won't.  It's stuck for now.
I think it would take a lot to knock G'kar off the top slot, though, I'm just sayin'. I'm going to include 5 runners-up, just because I can.

it's too hard to choose! )

I'm kind of disappointed in myself that so few of these are women. And hey, lots of them are from Babylon 5 anyway. It's just that good.
