As I'm in need of some fun distraction, here's a meme I copied from [livejournal.com profile] fire_lord_azula .

Name a character and I'll tell you three (or more) facts about them from my own personal headcanon.

If I've ever mentioned a fandom, or wrote about one (even in a crossover) then it's fair game. :)

He might be in charge of his people and have the tailed beast exorcised from him, but Gaara will always see himself as a monster first, person second.

He doesn't have anything other than respect for Lee (sorry, I just don't see the Gaara/Lee ship.)

He will always hold himself apart even from those he holds dear, but he will die of old age -- a man with no regrets.

The strangest thing about the end of the war is how close Zuko and Katara became. Once the hostility eased, they were true BFF's. Like, to the point where their relationship was always gossip throughout the nations AND once Aang (in a fit of teenage 16 year old insecurity, a couple years before the birth of their first child) accused Katara of harboring feelings for him. It wasn't true, of course. They were friends. Just insanely close ones.

Zuko's never really takes up tea with the gusto that Iroh did. His secret love is that of gardening (he discovered it in his twenties) -- especially rare, temperamental flowers. He actually wins a few awards for his flowers... under a different name, of course. No one would dare vote against him if they knew the Fire Lord had entered.

Zuko's first and last visit to Ozai in jail was to ask the whereabouts of his mother. When Ozai died, ten years later, he attended the funeral but he did not shed a tear. He never forgave Ozai either, deep in his heart.

I would say Kakairu, since that's what my brain is infected with right now...

If that's over done, how about your new fandom Inception: Eames/Arthur?

(Yes, I realise these are relationships, not characters, but... double the number, double the fun? :P )
Tuesday, March 8th, 2011 11:50 pm (UTC)
What timing! As I took a break from writing Inception fan fiction to do this meme....

Okay, Arthur and Eames as a couple. (Someone could still ask for them individually if they wish.)

After the inception job, Eames talked Arthur into working with him. Normally Arthur would have declined, but Eames had struck during that post-oh-my-god-we-actually-pulled-it-off high, and Arthur was weak. He became Eames' point-man and Eames played the Extractor/Forger. The job went very well, up until the end when it fell apart and Arthur saved Eames' life. After that, Arthur figured he probably shouldn't leave the other man alone...

They debate on when the first kiss actually took place. Eames says it was down on the second level of a particularly paranoid Senator. The dreamscape was a black-tie event, there was the waltz and they had to blend in while Ariadne talked up the mark and... well, you know how these things go. High emotions and all that. Arthur, on the other hand, says that doesn't count because it was in a dream, and their first kiss actually happened several days later, after a meeting where they had successfully blackmailed said senator. Again, he blames the post-job high. He's weak to that.

There is one time where Eames is actually caught and arrested in the States. Arthur doesn't wait for him -- he calls up every favor he knows (and adds a few more), drags Cobb from retirement and BREAKS him out of Folsom Maximum Security prison. That, he tells Eames later, as they are trying to smuggle themselves out of California, is love.

Gah. I don't know much about Genma, so these facts are rather sparse. Apologies.

It's a little obvious, but Genma has an oral fixation -- or an oral tick. He used to suck his fingers (the pointer and middle) as a child, but stopped at 7 years old when his father introduced him to senbon...

He's a scrapper and probably could be promoted to Jounin from Special Jounin if he *really* wanted. But he does lack some ambition and besides, he'd rather people underestimate him and be surprised. He also is uncomfortable with children under the age of 15 -- doesn't know how to interact with them. That's another reason he doesn't want to try for Jounin. He doesn't want a team of his own.

There is a lost love in his history -- I don't know if the person was male or female, but Genma had love and let it slip through his fingers. He'll always regret it.
Tuesday, March 8th, 2011 11:34 pm (UTC)
Hrm, I guess I say Shikamaru, since his is all kinds of awesome.

(Alternatively, idk if you have anything to do with this fandom, but I was going to say Roy Mustang, since I am re-reading the manga and he is one of my favorite fictional characters in the universeeven if I am the only FMA fan on the internet who has no interest in slashing him with Ed...

How did this comment get so long?
Wednesday, March 9th, 2011 12:03 am (UTC)
Out of the two, I think I can come up with more for Mustang.

Ha. There are at least two of us because I also don't pair up Roy with Ed... I just can't get over the fact that Roy's in his thirties and Ed is a kid. (Never mind he's an extremely mature kid.)

After the events of the final battle in the manga, Roy and Riza are secretly married. It's a secret, of course, because they still wish to work together. It sorta comes out, however, a few years later, when Riza becomes pregnant.

Roy actually gets the hang of the 'clapping transmutation' quite well and, along with Alphonse's, publishes several academic papers in the theory of alchemical transmutation. He's a little embarrassed by it, and downplays his help (but is secretly proud).

He totally is elected Furor after Grumman. It's almost expected, seeing how he revitalized the blasted country of Isval and helped bring new economic prosperity to the entire region.

This is very unfair, but she's been on my mind a lot: Korra.

Alternately, if you would rather avoid describing her, Arthur from Inception.
Wednesday, March 9th, 2011 12:19 am (UTC)
Gah. I really don't have anything for Korra just yet, so I'll stick with Arthur for now.

Arthur was born and raised in New Jersey, but ended up majoring in engineering at UC Berkley. You wouldn't know it by looking, but there's quite the liberal streak in him. His family was scandalized and think that living next to San Francisco for four years turned him gay. (They don't know about the two boyfriends in high school). And this was BEFORE he became a career criminal...

He was working for the Army Corps of Engineers, and was extremely talented at it, when Mallory Cobb introduced him to dream sharing. Sometimes Dom will squint at him and feel guilty (in a fatherly way) that he set Arthur on the path he's at now. Arthur will never tell him he felt like he was drowning in the corps, and wouldn't go back to it if there was a gun to his head.

For a time, Arthur thought he was in love with Dom. But Dom was straight as an arrow and besides, nearly crazy with grief over Mal. Eventually Dom gained peace over Mal's death and Arthur fell for Eames... but sometimes Arthur still looks at Cobb and wonders, what if?

Toph will never, ever, ever, ever, EVER admit this (even under the threat of hot pokers), but yeah, she carried the torch for Sokka for a long time. She still hates Suki... just a little, for being the girl he loved.

The next ruler of Omashu is decided by a contest of Earthbending, as it always has been. Toph almost doesn't enter after the great King Bumi died, not knowing if she really wanted the responsibility. But by then she was in her early thirties and her legs were a little weary from 20 years of traveling. She enters and wins.

She had an fling with Haru, The Duke, and some pretty barmaid, once. She never settles down, though. Never has children. They call her the virgin queen of Omashu, although she's nothing but. Even towards the end, it's rumored she had new good looking vistors to her chambers every other week.

Arthur from the 6th sense crossover would be awesome if you please.
Wednesday, March 9th, 2011 12:39 am (UTC)
Sixth Sense!Arthur's subconscious is not militarized -- it never needed to be. His dream security (his Mr Charles, if you were) is Dr. Malcom Crowe, the psychologist who helped him as a child. Arthur has his own personal PASIV device and occasionally takes trips down to speak with him. He finds it very therapeutic.

Arthur pretty much acts like a load-stone to any ghosts in the immediate area (and sometimes not so immediate) so he never stays in one place for more than a few months at most. This was part of the reason he was so tortured as a child. In some ways, his job as a point man is very convenient for an excuse to travel.

He's never met another person who can speak to ghosts, although he always keeps an eye out.

He got his love of suits from the memory of his father who abandoned him and his mother when he was eight, though Arthur can't bring himself to hate him. He used to miss him terribly, but as he grew up it slowly moved to a sort of apathy. Arthur still likes the feeling of being in a well tailored suit, though.

Curses! I was going to ask for Toph... Hmm... How about Iroh?
Wednesday, March 9th, 2011 12:51 am (UTC)
Iroh was fucking SCARY as Dragon Of The West. Like, he could have had a very good shot at winning the war, type-scary. It wasn't that he was mean, or petty and cruel like Ozai. He was extremely competent at whatever he did, had the undying loyalty of his men, and was very good at winning. Losing Lu Ten undid much of that, of course, but there are still glimmers of his old self, sometimes in his eyes.

He was betrothed to his first wife, and truly did care for her. Sure, he had some mistresses on the side, but that was to be expected. After she died giving Lu Ten to him, however, Iroh would have traded every mistress he ever had for one last night with his wife, to tell her he was sorry.

He lives to a good age, but during his last year he has a lot of trouble focusing his mind. He slips up and calls Zuko "Lu Ten" on accident a few times. It's highly embarrassing for both.

(Gah. This is a little more morbid than I planned. Sorries!)

Azula. (And for extra points, Appa XD)
Wednesday, March 9th, 2011 01:03 am (UTC)
Azula: In my head!canon, Azula doesn't ever get back to normal -- sorry. She has very good times where she'll walk the grounds peacefully and play a bit of fire-ball with the residents. Then she'll have really bad days full of screaming hallucinations where she has to be restrained by the staff for her own good.

She never has children, and can never forgive Mai and Zuko for betraying her. As a result, she sends homemade gifts to her mother for her birthday, and to her father while he's alive.

Her insanity is a direct result of using blue flame too young, too wildly. The legends say that the power of blue flame can change a person, alter them completely. I say that the legends are right.


Appa is totally NOT the last sky bison. One day he disappears out of nowhere and is gone for three weeks, to Aang's utter despair. He comes back a few weeks later with a female bison by his side. Aang can never figure out where the rest of the wild herd are hiding, or where the female came from... and Appa isn't exactly telling.

Appa is both less aware and more aware than his friends (sans Aang of course) give him credit for. He's actually capable of deep thought, for an animal, but has no concept of past or the future.

As a spiritual companion to the Avatar, Appa lives as long as Aang does. They die on the same night, surrounded by friends.

Iruka please <3
Wednesday, March 9th, 2011 01:30 am (UTC)
Iruka really is special jounin level -- he might be Jounin level, but it won't matter because he will always stay as a Chuunin. He's a talented teacher and besides, he can be a liability in the field for pulling his punches and having too much sympathy for the enemy.

His sensei was Orochimaru and was in a team along with Anko. Their third team member died before he made Chuunin. Orochimaru never really saw much potential in Iruka -- his attention was centered to the more talented, Anko. So Iruka never learned any forbidden jutsu from him. He was seen only as canon-fodder... Iruka was discouraged and jealous of Anko as a kid, but in hindsight, he sees it as a blessing.

Eventually, when Kakashi becomes Hokage, Iruka will be promoted to his assistant. He will be most of the reason why the village doesn't fall apart.

Sokka! :D
Wednesday, March 9th, 2011 01:34 am (UTC)

Sokka will grow up to be Chief of the Southern Water Tribe when his father steps down.

Katara always had the travel-bug in her, but Sokka much preferred to stay in one spot and go hunting. That's exactly what he does. While he does travel several times a year for meetings with Aang and Zuko (and visits with Katara), his heart is in the South Pole.

While he loves Suki very deeply, but knows he could have loved Toph instead. But he knew he was to be Chief, and she couldn't be in a place of ice where she couldn't see. One of them would have to chance to fit the other, and he knew that would never work.
