Character Meme Redux
1. Leave a comment to this post - specifically saying that you would like a letter.
2. I will give you a letter.
3. Post the names of five fictional characters whose names begin with that letter, and your thoughts on each. The characters can be from books, movies, or TV shows.

I decided to play again and aries11 gave me 'J'. When Kris first gave me this letter I had a mild moment of *meep* as I could only think of one character. Later on it became a case of choosing five out of the multitude I could think of. I could very nearly have done it for NCIS alone - but in the end could only think of four characters. Knowing me once I post this I'll think of a fifth *wry grin*

Leroy Jethro Gibbs
My equal favourite NCIS character and one half of my favourite pairing. Gibbs is . . . Gibbs - which pretty much sums him up, actually. I love Gibbs, I love his character and he's more than easy on the eye - in fact he's downright sexy (yes, I can be shallow). In some ways when you really study him he's quite the man of contradictions (or as Ducky himself said 'a man of more questions than answers). He's tough, but he cares deeply; he'll tell someone to 'get over it', but he doesn't; he's at times dismissive of people (especially the field team) but he's there for any of them, even showing his hurt if they don't turn to him. He is the person you want as your friend, not your enemy. He'd kill for you, he'd die for you, he'd lie for you, he'd support you - but you darn well have to earn his trust and woe-betide you if you betray it.

Jimmy Palmer
After Gibbs and Ducky, Jimmy (along with Tim and Fornell) is my favourite character. One of the many things I love about him is how his character has grown over the years, how he has developed. How he's gone from being so in awe and afraid of Gibbs he could barely string two words together to actually standing up to him and speaking out - even if it does earn him a double 'glare' from Gibbs and Ducky. He's going to make a great ME one day and take over from Ducky and no doubt start to retell Ducky's stories.

Jack Halford
Ex-Detective Chief Superintendent Halford from New Tricks, the most senior member of the team, the most respected and the one who actually holds the team together. He may not actually be in charge of the team, but I believe even Sandra sees him (certainly at times) as more the leader than she is - well she did work under him when he was an actual detective. He lost his wife to a hit and run driver and in many ways never recovered - but the formation of the  Unsolved Crime and Open Case Squad (UCOS) actually saved him (and Gerry and Brian too). Jack is my favourite member of the team - but I love them all.

Jack O'Neill
Colonel Jack O'Neill leader of the Stargate SG-1 team. Jack's my favourite character. He's a great team leader, but doesn't suffer fools gladly, not a huge techie, smart (but not necessarily book smart), loyal, dedicated, caring, protective of his team; a darn good man.  (I think he and Gibbs have a lot in common).

Julian Bashir
The doctor from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Julian fascinates me and is my favourite character from the series. He's highly intelligent, compassionate and a good man.

Which actor plays Halford? I'm useless with character names in NT! Really must watch it more often *nods*

Along with my Buffy dvds I keep meaning to move my SG-1 collection, I really want to re-watch from the start. Though as I have individual discs & not box sets they take up rather a lot of space! I adore Jack too, though I did always wish RDA didn't default to stupid!Jack quite so often. You missed off 'hot' from your list by the way *g*

I was wondering why you hadn't listed Jim Robinson then it dawned on me he's called Tom Morrow in NCIS land *headdesk*. This is what too much telly as a child does to you! And now I have the Neighbours theme tune in my head. Bugger.

*Holds onto chair to stop self from falling out*

YOU are asking ME!!!!!! *Waits for the world to resettle on its axis or the apocalypse to arrive*

James Bolam.

*Makes mental note to remind you the next time you go home to bring both back with you* I did indeed - but I did say he's a lot like Gibbs and I had said Gibbs was sexy *Nods*

*Giggles* Well, yes, that could be the reason.

I still think there must be a 5th NCIS character.

I have:

Yes but at least I know which one JB is and can picture his face *sticks tongue out*

Hmm, well ok then. I'll let you off.

Well we could always spell Gerald as Jerald which would give you 5 *g*
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 26th February 2012 14:06 (UTC) (Link)
*Eyes you and mutters darkly*

But I have now recognised three actors in a row & knew their names and what else I'd seen them from. So there. *Sticks tongue out*

Why thank you.

*Giggles madly* That may have crossed my mind.

Jackson Gibbs :)

I'll play - give me a letter please.
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 27th February 2012 15:11 (UTC) (Link)
*Bangs head very, very, very, very hard on laptop*


A good friend of mine also came up with Jordan and last night J and I were watching 'In The Zone' of of course there's Nikki Jardine.

But to forget Jackson . . . *Bangs head again*


I give you: M
From: proseac1 Date: 27th February 2012 20:29 (UTC) (Link)
LOL Don't hurt yourself! :D

I'll have to ponder this letter. I'm at work right now, and I have choir practice tonight, so it'll either be late tonight or sometime tomorrow when I post. Hmmm...

ETA: Had a bit of time before choir, so answers be at my journal now. :)

*Grins* *Rubs head* A tad late for that *g*
aries11 From: aries11 Date: 26th February 2012 15:53 (UTC) (Link)
I had a similar thing happen when you initially gave me S. At first, I could only think of one or two. Then I had an influx!

Hey, I'll say it, too: Gibbs is sexy! ;D

I'm a little surprised not to see Jenny Shepard on this list. I thought for certain she was the initial only one you could think of.
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 26th February 2012 18:03 (UTC) (Link)
*Grins* It's strange how that happens, isn't it?

Oh, he really is.

Oh, really? Out of interest why would you think she would be? The only one I could think of was 'Jethro'. I did have Jenny in mind (along with Jeanne) but once I couldn't think of a fifth (a good friend of mine just has, actually, Jordon Hampton) I decided to only use two NCIS people. And I could have dropped Jimmy for another J.
caffyolay From: caffyolay Date: 26th February 2012 16:00 (UTC) (Link)
I'll play... gimme a letter. :-)
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 26th February 2012 18:16 (UTC) (Link)

I give you B.
caffyolay From: caffyolay Date: 27th February 2012 10:14 (UTC) (Link)
LOL... I wonder who one 'B' could be... ;-) Out today but will post in a day or two.
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 27th February 2012 15:13 (UTC) (Link)


Now let me think . . .
caffyolay From: caffyolay Date: 13th March 2012 14:47 (UTC) (Link)
A bit late but I've done the meme at last. Great fun. :-)
femme_slash_fan From: femme_slash_fan Date: 26th February 2012 17:05 (UTC) (Link)
Letter me.
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 26th February 2012 18:16 (UTC) (Link)
Okay, let's give you: L
femme_slash_fan From: femme_slash_fan Date: 26th February 2012 18:20 (UTC) (Link)
OMG. Okay.
femme_slash_fan From: femme_slash_fan Date: 26th February 2012 18:49 (UTC) (Link)
Posting it now.
kytivafan From: kytivafan Date: 26th February 2012 17:24 (UTC) (Link)
I want to play.... letter me!
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 26th February 2012 18:17 (UTC) (Link)
I shall letter you with A.
duckys_lady From: duckys_lady Date: 26th February 2012 22:18 (UTC) (Link)
I haven't finished my last assignment as "L" is proving difficult for me. Does Lt. something (or Lord something) count as an L? ;-) Nevertheless, it's been fun thinking of characters, so I would be happy for a second letter.
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 27th February 2012 15:14 (UTC) (Link)
I'm sorry L is so difficult for you :-(

I would say you could count those, yes.

Let's see if can find an easier letter. D?
birggitt From: birggitt Date: 27th February 2012 16:14 (UTC) (Link)
Oh, these are great choices!
I love all of them, and yet, we manage to not overlap with anyone *laughs*
And Jack Halford! *jazz hands* I love him SO much!
I still need to go back, and catch up with your Alphabet meme. I'm painfully behind, again! But I hope I'll be able to do it today, as it's a not working day, and I only need to get the Highlander newsletter finished. *fingers crossed*
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 27th February 2012 18:05 (UTC) (Link)
Thank you *Beams*

*Giggles madly*

Yay for Jack Halford love.

No rush at all, they are not going anywhere *g* And a heads-up you'll get your Holmes story tomorrow.
birggitt From: birggitt Date: 27th February 2012 18:58 (UTC) (Link)
Oh, Sherlock! YAY! \o/ Last week I was revisiting some episodes from Granada! Sherlock, because, seriously, Jeremy Brett is such a wonderful Holmes! *sigh*
And, well, maybe there is no rush, but I so want to read them! *grins*
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 28th February 2012 12:49 (UTC) (Link)
*Beams* Very soon now. Oh, he was, he really was.

*Grins* And I'd like you to read them, I have to say.
