greatbriton: (ANGEL Cordy laugh)

Yes, I hate women. Women drive me nuts. Even though I am one, that fact does not warm me to other women. I think it allows me to know exactly why women are evil.

But, somewhat recently...women have been growing on me. I've found a place inside of me that doesn't hate them. And a few women have made my heterosexual heart go pitter patter.

I think its more the characters I love then the actresses themselves because in the end they are all strong and interesting female characters. But the women who play the characters all appear to me to share those qualities as well.

I give you Four Women that I can't help but crush on. Big Time Crush. I wanted to do 5 but apparently at this point in my life Five is too many. So Four.



It all began with a little scifi show called Farscape. And with a beautiful and strong leading lady named Claudia Black as the fierce and radiant Officer Aeryn Sun. An alien that quickly draws the attention of John Crichton. Her military instincts clash with his human ways and at one point she ponders what he could possibly teach her. Out in space with a band of criminals she found the feelings that she had once thought weakened a person to be the thing that made her even stronger.

She had a role in Pitch Black which was enough for me. I went and saw it. Then I was beyond pleased when SciFi Channel brought her back to play Vala Mal Doran on Stargate SG-1 in its final 2 seasons. I fell in love all over.

This woman is breathtakingly beautiful and accent! <3 She has such big teeth which would usually be a weird thing but on her it just makes her smile shine. She is my first and forever love. AERYN!!



Aeryn Sun: She gives me a woody.
[no one says anything]
Aeryn Sun: Woody. It's a human saying. I've heard you say it often. When you don't trust someone or they make you nervous, they give you...
John Crichton: Willies. She gives you the willies.

Aeryn Sun: I apologize for my strengths.

Aeryn Sun: Who are you to order me around?
John Crichton: Order? I was offering a suggestion.
Aeryn Sun: Well, who are you to offer suggestions?

Vala Mal Doran: Being stuck on this ship is worse than being stuck at the SGC. I-I-I tell you, the last time I was this bored I took hostages!





I thought the woman love was a one off. But no. Next came a couple years later. In the form of Tina Fey, small, clever and HILARIOUS. Her skits on SNL had me laughing. But it wasn't until I saw 30 Rock that my second crush began.



Liz Lemon: I want to go to there.

Jenna Maroney: How's it going?
Liz Lemon: Terrible. I just want to go home and watch that show about midgets and eat a block of cheese.

Liz Lemon: You can't be gay for one person. Unless you're a lady. And you meet Ellen.






Ok ok. So not a one off. Two women. I can live with that. But then came the damn show Angel. Blast that show and its awesome characters and its awesome actors. Charisma Carpenter caught my attention immediately playing evil Cordelia Chase in the episode "Orpheus". I was hooked almost instantly. Went back and have now seen her Cordelia evolve from the Queen Bitch on Buffy The Vampire Slayer to being the heart and center of her small group of friends in Angel.

In my opinion, by far the most beautiful of the female actresses in the Buffyverse. And I LOVE the fact that she has tattoos. *makes out with her*



Cordelia Chase: Grease stains all over my new outfit! Okay, so maybe my pain isn't physical, but do you have any idea of the dry cleaning bill I'm looking at?

Cordelia Chase: You can't fire me. I'm Vision Girl.

Cordelia: I thought he had a soul.
Spike: I thought she didn't.
Cordelia: I do!
Spike: So do I!
Cordelia: Well, clearly, mine's better.

Cordelia: Don't make it hard, Angel. I'm just on a different road... and this is my off-ramp. The Powers That Be owed me one, and I didn't waste it. I got my guy back on track.







And soon after that I gave the show Bones a try. Never thought going into that show that I'd find such a fantasticly beautiful woman. In the line of my female crushes so far, Emily Deshanel is last but certainly not least. She plays the genius level intelligent Temperance "Bones" Brennan who works with Special Agent Seeley Booth to solve crimes.

She is beyond beautiful. Her eyes! OH dear lord her eyes make me melt! A woman has never made me melt before. But her EYES!! I don't think its possible for this woman to look bad. I even think she's beautiful when she's breaking down and crying. <3 And from interviews I've seen she seems to be such a lovely lovely human being.

*takes her home to love her and squeeze her and keep her forever and evers*




Dr. Temperance Brennan: We'll find out who killed him, Booth. We've got Hamid's body. You can always count on the dead.

Dr. Temperance Brennan: [to murderer who is trying to put a voodoo curse on her, so she pokes him in the eye to shut him up] I've noticed that very few people are scary once they've been poked in the eye.

Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: I can't just bust into song. I have to have music. And an appropriate atmosphere of frivolity.

Special Agent Seeley Booth: What are you trying to do?
Dr. Temperance Brennan: Blackmail you.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Blackmail a federal agent.
Dr. Temperance Brennan: Yes.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: I don't like it.
Dr. Temperance Brennan: I'm fairly certain you're not supposed to.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Fine. You're in.

Dr. Temperance Brennan: I don't know what that means.




Hope I didn't get creepy in my love. But Beautiful women!! I just wanted to show my appreciation for these women of television and movies. And objectify them a bit, apparently. lol




And a little song that fits the theme.

oh good, i was hoping i'd meet a female misogynist.

...

anywaay, it was just last night that i was telling my mom about how awesome cordy is. she'd only seen her in a few of the early buffy episodes and didn't realize the strong and mature woman she became over the two series. she's my favorite female character from the buffyverse (with faith a close second). and yes, she is quite hot as well.

LOL I couldn't help the introduction. I always joke to my friends about the "evil" of women. And I've always ended up with more male friends then female friends for some reason. But I really have no problem with women.

Cordelia's arc is so fantastic to watch. You really watch her grow into such a strong woman. Looking at the beginning of Buffy and then the end of her normal self on Angel you couldn't help but be interested in how that transformation had occurred. Go! Get your mom watching! :)

I am also with you on the Faith being my second favorite female character in the Buffyverse. And strangely she got less screentime then so many others. hehe

Oh, I came to terms with the fact that I love girls "in a festive, non lebian way" (according to Angela Montenegro, who is one of my loves)

I love everybody on your list!!! And then some. What does that say about me?

*waves* Heya heya!

aww, Angel Season 4. The insane season of insanity. <3333 First episode of Angel I ever watched was in the middle of Season 4. Evil Cordelia running around stealing Angel's soul. sheesh.

woah that must have been ODD!

I had no idea Cordy was going to go INSANE!!

And I have no idea what will become of her in season 5 *eek*

From: [identity profile] greatbriton.livejournal.com
Well, she didn't quite go insane. More like taken over by evil demon thing. :( Poor Cordy. She did not deserve any of season 4, no she did not.

I do not want to spoil, so I will fight my urge to comment on that last sentence, so I will stay silent. :)

Claudia, Charisma and Emily are all favorites of mine. They all play awesome, beautiful characters on great shows (not counting Stargate, sorry). And Claudia is very charming in person. I got to see her at a FS convention a few years back. She's lovely.

Aeryn Sun: Who are you to order me around?
John Crichton: Order? I was offering a suggestion.
Aeryn Sun: Well, who are you to offer suggestions?


LOL, J&A are timeless.

Awww, no stargate love? *is sad* Its not my favorite of shows, might not make my top 10 but I do love it for some crazy reasons. And Claudia came in and gave it some real spice. <3 And the character was so different from Aeryn Sun it was nice. I am jealous of you for having seen her.

J&A are my first ever OTP. I have multiple...if that's possible. lmao

I do agree with that! I only watched it for Claudia and Ben, but really was pretty let down with regard to the storylines.

J&A were my first OTPs too, before I knew what OTP meant. :)

About the girl crush thing, I'd not really thought about it because I don't really think like that (lol), but if I were to think about it, it would be definitely all about Emily. It's gotta be the eyes! But too bad for her because my heart belongs to Booth. ♥

You ever watch the first couple seasons of Stargate? Early on was the best, in my opinion. It got a bit stale and then RDA left so blah. And the Orii in the last couple season when Claudia and Ben came on was just BORING.

before I knew what OTP meant.

Totally! lol awww...*memories*

Emily's eyes make mesmerize me. I'd take Booth any day too unless Brennan sashayed on over and gave me a look with those eyes. I might be a lost cause if that's the case.

You don't have to convince me of that. I was so unimpressed.

I did love the movie all those years ago, but didn't watch the series, no. My father-in-law likes it, and my husband borrowed all of the DVDs to watch, but I still don't have the urge.

And just because I'm feeling more comfortable with you, I thought you'd appreciate this picture. Before you ask, yeah that's me. Those were fun times, and thinking back on it, I'm a little embarrassed. But oh, he was comfortable. ♥

Awwww, you are adorable! *hugs the adorable* That was probably so much fun! :)

And I'm totally jealous of you, AGAIN! gah! I bet he was comfortable. teeeheeeheee What is that, like a smaller meet and greet thing? with the chairs and all.

*is jealous*

It was a BLAST. That was the 2004 Farscape Convention. There were a bunch of girls sitting on his lap at the meet and greet that year, which was probably why the next year he was standing. Whoops.

Great show, great times. It's too bad we didn't know each other back then, because it would have been more fun. :)

bwahahahaha! ;)

If I hadn't had a full first to last episode Farscape marathon so recently to get my B/F into the show I would go rewatch again. <3333

Oh man. If only we did know each other then. It would have been LEGENDARY! lol

So, I'm basically a lurker since I love your icons but I totally had to comment on this one:

OMG GIRL CRUSH ON CORDY. Tell me about it, me too. Love her personality and I think she's gorgeous as well.

That scene with her and David in Waiting in the Wings has too much beauty for my tv screen to bear. XD

Hello hello!! :)

Yay mutual Cordy crush! <3 Such a fantastic character.

I can never get enough of Waiting in the Wings. Guh! C/A shipping heart goes all pitter patter.

Oh my gosh, such a great idea for an entry! Tina Fey is fantastic, but Emily Deschanel is definitely numero uno on my girl-crush list. She's gorgeous! And the fact she stars alongside David Boreanaz makes her even more enviable! <3

Forgot to add that I'm a lurker too - as I love your icons, lol, happened to see this entry, and simply had to comment. :)
