PLEASE TELL ME SOMEONE HASN'T DONE PARKER/HARDISON YET.
OKAY SOMEONE HASN’T DONE PARKER/HARDISON YET. But now I will! I might throw some Eliot in there too, because dorothyoz39 requested that. :-)
Drinks all of the coffee: I don’t think Parker or Hardison are big coffee drinkers, so…Eliot, maybe? I guess he’s shown drinking coffee a few times.
Brings up adopting a pet: Hardison. Parker barely knew what to do with a plant.
Kills the bugs: Parker.
Cooks the meals: Eliot. Parker would live on cold cereal if they let her, and Hardison can cook but usually gets so into whatever project he’s working on that he forgets to eat, let alone cook. If it weren’t for him, Eliot grumbles, they’d probably both have rickets or some shit. And if he didn’t cook for them, they’d just steal his sandwiches anyway, Hardison. Yeah, that’s right, he knows about that.
Starts getting into holidays way before they should: Parker.
Initiates the couple selfies: Hardison.
Forgets the birthdays and anniversaries: Parker doesn’t forget them, but they’re not as important to her as they are to Hardison, and she feels awkward about things like anniversaries and birthdays because she didn’t celebrate stuff like that growing up. Hardison totally gets that, though, and he basically tells Parker early on that he doesn’t care if she makes a big deal about his birthday – and he really means it. He plans his own birthday celebrations, and involves Parker in the planning, and that works out pretty well for them both. (Eliot quietly makes them both their favorite meals and a cake on both their birthdays every year, just like he does for Nate and Sophie, when they’re all in the same place.)
Always ends up with too much junk food after grocery shopping: Let’s just say their house is well-stocked with orange soda, gummy frogs, and a wide variety of breakfast cereals, and they regularly get donuts from their favorite bakery. (They don’t worry too much about things like vegetables and fiber. That’s why they have Eliot, who stomps around complaining about grown-ass adults who eat like 10-year-olds while he cuts up fruit and measures out yogurt and chia seeds to make freezer smoothie packs for them, and then cooks them “a real meal with actual protein and vegetables, and you’re gonna eat it so you aren’t the first two cases of goddamn scurvy in modern-day Portland”. This arrangement works out really well for Parker and Hardison, who’d both rather do things other than cook, and for Eliot, who loves cooking for them.)
Nicknames the other: Hardison has at least a dozen nicknames for Parker. (Hardison has at least a dozen nicknames for everyone he loves, actually, but not everyone is as cool with him using them as Parker is, Eliot – man, you really need to relax.) Parker mostly just calls him Hardison around other people. When it’s just the two of them, she calls him Alec about half the time, and the way she says it makes Hardison feel like it’s an endearment.
Extroverted Sensing (Se): Xena’s great at detecting things about her environment—a useful skill because she’s often out in the wilderness while warlords run rampant. If it’s too quiet, she notices. If an enemy’s walking with a limp or uses a specific fighting style, she notices. While Gabrielle is a quick thinker and talker, Xena’s a quick doer. She’s skilled on a number of fighting and healing fronts and can quickly choose from her tools (sword, chakram, pressure points, whip, etc.). While she does not condone violence (at least anymore), she revels in fighting and accompanies her acrobatic combat style with her signature war cry.
Introverted Feeling (Fi): Xena has strong ideas about right and wrong, though they’re colored by her past (which may clash with Gabrielle’s Fi), so she struggles when she’s tempted by vengeance. However, she and Gabrielle usually end up on the same page, and she often tells Gabrielle that she likes traveling with her because she keeps Xena true to herself when she gets too ruthless.
Extroverted Thinking (Te): Xena’s great at leading people into battle and achieving her goals as quickly and directly as possible, though she can (and has) be ruthless in her actions. Her entire show is about her redemption from the ruthless acts she performed after she became a warlord when her village was attacked. This function, however, makes her a great mediator for disputes, be they within villages or among the gods themselves.
Introverted Intuition (Ni): As Xena likes to say, she “has many skills.” She knows how to use them and how to tell people that she’s put together a conclusion, though she doesn’t always understand how her conclusions fit into a bigger picture. She’s told that she has a destiny, and she doesn’t mind that, but she’s less concerned with that and more concerned with surviving day-to-day and keeping the peace wherever she happens to be.
Who am I? I am Susan Ivanova, Commander. Daughter of Andre and Sophie Ivanov. I am the right hand of vengeance and the boot that is going to kick your sorry ass all the way back to Earth, sweetheart! I am death incarnate, and the last living thing that you will ever see. God sent me.
Delenn of Mir We are all born as molecules in the hearts of a billion stars. Molecules that do not understand politics or policies or differences. Over a billion years, we foolish molecules forget who we are and where we came from. In desperate acts of ego, we give ourselves names, fight over lines on maps, and pretend that our light is better than everyone else’s.
Introverted Intuition (Ni): Morrigan has an agenda and a plan, a plan for which she’s been trained since birth. She’s very direct in her plans (if Alistair and the Warden have problems with Loghain, why not go after him immediately?) and does not approve of deviating from her goals (which, in part, are the Warden’s goals). When she suspects what Flemeth is going to do, she makes slight modifications to her plan (killing Flemeth so that she can obtain more of her knowledge and keep her own body) but still keeps the same end goal in mind—raising a baby with the soul of an old god, finding the Eluvian, defeating the Blight. As the Warden progresses, it becomes more and more clear that Morrigan knows a lot more than she lets on, though she only shares as much as is necessary (Ni-Te).
Extroverted Thinking (Te): Though she does not like the plan her mother has for her, she sees it as a logical solution and argues it as such to the Warden (nobody dies, I keep this baby). She is brutally practical in her reasoning, which causes her to clash with Leliana and Wynne on matters of faith—she will not believe in anything she does not see. She sees knowledge and power as the only non-fleeting things in the world, and disapproves if the Warden does anything for other reasons. She is curious about people and studies them from a distance, in much of the same way that she approaches her study of history.
Introverted Feeling (Fi): Though Morrigan has been raised in many of her mother’s traditions (magic, using men, tricking templars) and admits that they make a lot of sense, she has very strong beliefs, some of which contradict her mother’s, and she ultimately follows what she believes is true. She has trouble talking about her feelings, especially since she sees them in conflict with practicality (Te) and, to a certain extent (depending on how she feels about the Warden), her end goals (Ni). She finds her life growing up in the Wilds very lonely, but she does not talk about it very much. She cares about the future of the world but would rather observe it than interact with it, proven in her interactions with people and the way that she learns to shapeshift as different animals.
Extroverted Sensing (Se): Morrigan loves shiny and sparkling objects (especially ornate mirrors) and is happy if the Warden gives her jewelry or vanity items, though she admits that such things have no practical use (she still accepts the gifts, though). She has a very specific style sense and fashions herself to look sexy and formidable.
