I would like an icon...

... in honor of spoonishly finally watching The Coming of Shadows (It broke her, ladies and gentlemen!) using this cap in some way:



With the following caption, from Franklin's line:

The biggest tragedy of the whole damned story.

I will share whatever results I get with you, spoonishly, if you want them. *g*

ETA: OMG, I am so insanely giggly right now because someone else is watching B5 for the first time. B5 really is my One True Fandom.

Here's a quick one I made:

Yay! Thank you so much!
Part of the fun of getting through all of B5 is being able to watch the reactions of those you seduce into the fandom *g*. (One of the friends I introduced to the show loved Marcus and Lennier best. I almost felt guilty.)
Well, spoonishly is definitely ours. She's been squeeing all over Londo, G'Kar and Vir the whole time. *g*

Glad to hear it *g*.

I (re)watched the show with two friends. One of them, as I said, loves Marcus and Lennier. (And I have to make her finish her post-show Lennier story.) The other loved G'Kar, but not Londo. Now there's a thing I'll never understand ...
But it's not that uncommon. I've seen it on message boards and communities, repeatedly. (I.e. loving G'Kar but not Londo.) I think the most verbalized reason was in a reaction to Hobs' Londo/G'Kar essay that said that the poster just couldn't love Londo after both his deeds and the attitude he shows in season 3 and that what came after was too little, too late.

Anyway - superb screencapture and inspired idea for an icon, H.!

Yes - it's certainly not rare. Just bewildering to me personally *g*. I think it's because they have so much in common, on a basic level, at least to my eyes.

As we've discussed before, I find it hard to swallow the idea that G'Kar is inherently a better person than Londo - he arguably becomes one, but it's a question of circumstances as much as character. (Not that I hold other fans responsible for the characters they love or don't love.)
Of course, we're chanting the same tune here. I wonder whether this would be a good subject for a panel? "It could have been G'Kar. Debate."

My friend Janeen who started in season 2 to the accursed advice with her sister was really disturbed when watching season 1 after the entire course of the show because that wasn't "the G'Kar I fell in love with". And I think a lot of fans a projecting later season G'Kar as inevitable on to early G'Kar...

OMG! I'm definitely going to propose that one.

And finish my Five Things for G'Kar beforehand. Because that's essentially the theme of all five scenarios.

Yes, me too. He makes up his mind to become one. I think Londo decided a long time ago that he couldn't be a good person so he didn't have to try. They've both made conscious decisions about what kind of person to be; that's the sad thing to me.
He makes up his mind to become one.

Yes - and he doesn't do that until early Season Three. We see him in a more sympathetic light once the Narn-Centauri war begins, but it's important to remember this is still the man who wanted to kill all the Centauri and suck the marrow from their bones.

I think Londo decided a long time ago that he couldn't be a good person so he didn't have to try. They've both made conscious decisions about what kind of person to be; that's the sad thing to me.

Also, they have rather different definitions of 'good person' - for Londo, serving Centauri Prime is the highest possible good, while G'Kar eventually decides that he has a broader duty to the universe in general.
I love watching people watch the show unspoiled. canthlian did it last spring (around this time, oddly) and when he hit 'War Without End' he screamed "OH MY GOD" so loudly I was surprised we didn't hear it here in the states, all the way from Australia.

And that is why I tell people not to watch In the Beginning first.
Kinda OT, but I was wondering if you (as the resident Vir fanatic ;)) would happen to have any big photos of him (as Vir or of Stephen Furst himself) somewhere on your comp? Big as in big enough to print, meaning at least wallpaper-sized, but the bigger the better. The photo's supposed to go on a birthday cake, since he'll be turning 50 at FedCon in May :)
Not on my comp, no. :( I could attempt to get something of mine scanned in if you're desperate.

Also: OMG! He's having a birthday! I gotta ship something to selenak...
