Random little meme thing

Rules: Tag nine people
you want to get to know better that I think would not mind a meme of which I have no idea whether you’ve done
@lizardbeans @sproutyhead @javertsconfusedboner @lapillus-the-gargoyle-gecko @justnoodlefishthings @followthebluebell @slightlysociablehermit @whatshouldisayimshy @wheremyscalesslither (also @jundoe did he make you do this yet if not you should do it.)
and anybody else who wants to, of course!
Relationship status: Wedded to my career. We’re quite happy. This is us:
Lipstick or Chapstick: Both, actually. The lipsticks I like are rather drying (curse you, mattes!).
Last Song I Listened To: “The Man Who Sold the World” (David Bowie). Specifically the 1979 SNL video version with Klaus Nomi. I’d just gotten done explaining who Klaus Nomi was- longish story, a friend had shared a thing with a picture of the Marquis de Sade and I said that he kinda looked like Klaus Nomi’s long-lost grandpa and then it turned out that said friend had no idea who Klaus Nomi was, so I had to share the Lightning Strikes video and then that reminded me of the Man Who Sold The World tuxedo thing and so of course I had to go listen to that, I’ll never not listen to David Bowie.
Last Movie I Watched: Pacific Rim- I like to watch that with Juju. It’s so funny, she looks up every time they say the word “kaiju,” which is very, very frequent.
Top 3 Characters: Captain Janeway (Star Trek: Voyager), Death (Sandman), Sam Vimes (Discworld)
Top Three Ships: This is actually the hardest question here. I have a lot of crack ships, each one more hilarious and improbable than the next, but like, fictional relationships I’m actually invested in and enjoy experiencing are more frequently than not super strong friendships because I am an absolute sucker for created families- people adopting sibling roles, parent roles, coming to see this stranger they’ve been thrown together with as somebody they really care about. So these are my top three relationships- not just romantic relationships.
If I had to think about the fictional relationship that means the most to me, it’s the relationship between Kathryn Janeway and her crew from Star Trek: Voyager- specifically her friendship with Tuvok. Spoilers for a 20+ year old TV show: in the last episode, she unmakes reality to save her best friend’s mind. (And for many other reasons both personal and tactical, but Tuvok’s dementia is one of the most compelling reasons and the one that’s explored most in the show.) It’s quickly followed by the relationship between Ben Sisko and Jadzia Dax on DS9- that kind of loving, playful friendship that’s closer to siblinghood than anything else is something that I really enjoy watching.
As far as romantic ships go, they’re usually kinda fleeting depending on the media. I suppose that Garak/Bashir from DS9 holds a really special place in my heart (there’s this one fanfic, Letters from the Northern Continent, that makes me go all dokidoki). Although there is one that I’ve been all about for… jesus christ, over a decade now. I’ve been shipping this goddamn pairing for eleven years at this point. How do I make the letters tiny so that you don’t see that I still haven’t gotten over my first weeb ship from high school? Will I ever be over Integra/Alucard? (Probably not, we all have our vices after all.)
