A nice one to end the meme with!

- Fraser in "Asylum" saying, "You didn't shoot that man," and when Ray tries to talk him out of his certainty he says, "I know you."

- I'm not even especially fannish about these characters, but the moment in "The Breakfast Club" when Andrew the jock is talking to Allison the basket case about parents, and he says, "What do they do to you?" and she says, "They ignore me."

- I was sold on Harry Potter when the snake at the zoo said, "Brazil, here I come." It wasn't just the worldbuilding but the wit.

- Zelenka's description of Atlantis coming up from under the water -- he was speaking poetry, and if you didn't look up a translation, you'd never know.

- Any Sherlock Holmes adaptation is going to live or die in my esteem by how it treats John Watson. BBC Sherlock sold me in the exchange where Sherlock asks what John would be thinking if he were dying. "Please let me live," John says. Sherlock scoffs, "Use your imagination," and John says, "I don't have to."

Go here to add your own question.

3. [personal profile] mific: Do you enjoy Christmas more, or less, now the kidlet's older?
4. [personal profile] armadillo1976: Dec 4. From the perspective of a parent of a big(ish) kid, what do you remember most/best from the time your kid was 1-2?
(Asking as a mom of a 1.5 year old, terrified that she is going to forget all the love and beauty and mess of these times...)
5. [personal profile] grammarwoman: what's a go-to comfort meal for you?
6. [personal profile] cesperanza: What three things do you find unexpectedly sexy?
7. [personal profile] jesse_the_k: What's a garment that's well-loved by fandom, to the point of fanonization, that you really don't care for. Examples might be Fraser's hat; Ronon's gun; Sherlock's coat...
8. [personal profile] monanotlisa: What's the hardest thing to write for you, and how do you get around it and yet write it?
9. [personal profile] china_shop: Thoughts about writing original fic vs writing fanfic, whether it's different processes, different feelings (or the same process, and the same feelings), or whatever.
10. [personal profile] julad: What was publishing Exog like for you? The good, the not so good, the unexpected.
11. [personal profile] reginagiraffe: what was the best birthday present you ever got? (You can supply your own definition of "best".)
12. [personal profile] james: Is there a tv show or movie that you would pay a billion dollars to get either a re-working of an episode or a sequel to? (It might not cost that much. Millions.) Because sometimes fanfic isn't enough, you just need to see it on-screen.
13. [personal profile] mific: If you had to give up one of your 5 senses (you know, to save Atlantis or Benton Fraser's life, or suchlike), which would it be and why?
14. [personal profile] james: Which (if any) Harry Potter book is the best totally on its own, with no meta or context or fanfic to bolster it up?
15. [personal profile] james: Who is the most obscure composer, band, or individual musician that you adore?
16. [personal profile] zulu: best vacation/break you ever had?
