Had to go look both of those up. I saw maybe one or two eps of Moonlighting and never saw the other show.

You never saw Wonderfalls? You should go buy it. It's only one season, but it was brilliant. I hate tv execs.

I agree with the majority of this list (I don't know two of them)

But I just wanted to say I love Lessa and wish someone would make a damn movie/miniseries/tv show soon (as I would be auditioning for it in a heartbeat)

Oooh, Pern miniseries, an ambitious but excellent idea.

There's almost been a Pern series a few times, but it seems to be cursed, it never comes off. Maybe one day!

Please let it happen before any of us die.
Ith: Forever Knight - Janette Wineithildyn on April 30th, 2009 06:06 pm (UTC)

Cool! Curiosity now assuaged :)
Karen: Handsome House - Bases by _mikaela & rinauntyk on April 30th, 2009 08:28 am (UTC)
I agree wholeheartedly with your list.

I also think it's high time we saw a Pern miniseries with Lessa a central character
Ith: Art - Lily Pondithildyn on April 30th, 2009 06:06 pm (UTC)
Yes, I'd love to see such a series! Or a theatrical movie!

Lessa of Pern was my favorite when I was young.
Ith: DW - Tallulahithildyn on April 30th, 2009 08:25 pm (UTC)
I read those books over so many times as a teenager I wore out two sets of paperbacks!

AAACCCKKK!!!! I thought I was the only person on Earth who liked Forever Knight!! And yes, Janette was awesome! Aaah.. vampires that had teeth. Of course, they were the beginning of all that vegetarian, sensitive-guy, perfect boyfriend vampires. *rolls eyes*
Ith: Forever Knight - Foreverithildyn on May 1st, 2009 01:38 am (UTC)
Oh, lord no! A good chunk of my f'list are FK fans. I still write FK fic even.
harlequin_09: bloody by greeniefruharlequin_09 on May 1st, 2009 01:46 am (UTC)
OMG.. my first fic ever was an FK fic. Wow.. small world. Have you ever read the FK tie-in novel called "These Our Revels"??
Ithithildyn on May 1st, 2009 02:21 am (UTC)
Yep, I read the tie in novels, though I wasn't all that impressed with them. But I bought the books to try and support the franchise. Back then, they were teasing us with the possibility of a TV movie. But the bastards were just toying with as per usual.
harlequin_09: scarletharlequin_09 on May 1st, 2009 02:51 am (UTC)
lol.. my sister was one part of the Hathaway-Nayne writing team. The other chick's stuff sucked. I didn't read the other tie-in novels. But sheesh.. have you seen Geraint Wyn-Davies lately? wow.. *shakes head*
Ith: Forever Knight - Masterithildyn on May 1st, 2009 02:56 am (UTC)
That was the only one I thought was worth the price LOL. I really didn't like the other ones. That was Apache's wasn't it?

No, I havne't, though I was a LaCroix fan.
Becca: Ceirdwyn Warrior from jinxed_woodbeccadg on May 1st, 2009 05:08 am (UTC)
Heh, there are some characters on that list that are on my Favorite Female Characters list. Also there is a fandom or two in common -- Highlander, Marvel comic book characters. It does make me think about whether my list needs an update and-or some expanding.
Black Rook: Lorielgrachonok on May 1st, 2009 02:06 pm (UTC)
That's funny... I and my best friend are having "Oh, when will be the Pern movie"-dialog at least once a week :). Though my dream-role there was always Brekke:).

Oh, and have I ever mentioned that Tolkien fandom is my native one?:)
arhyalonarhyalon on May 1st, 2009 05:52 pm (UTC)
I loved them soooo much! My first novel, started at the age of 12, was heavily influenced by Pern.
Amy H. Sturgis: Scully/Outer Spaceeldritchhobbit on May 1st, 2009 09:43 pm (UTC)
Brilliant list! It makes me so happy to see Jane Eyre, Zoe, Dana Scully, Galadriel, and Janette in the same place. :) I don't know Addison Montgomery, but I'm with you re: all the rest!
