deird1: Cordelia reading, with text "Angel: pretty much a girly name" (Cordelia girly name)
[personal profile] frayadjacent gave me R.

Something I hate: Raisins. (By which I mean raisins, and not sultanas. I like sultanas.) Also rubber gloves. I see the point of them, but they're uncomfortable and inconvenient, and I wear them as little as possible.

Something I love: Reeboks. I have never owned any, but I grew up in the 80s, and it's still one of my life's ambitions to own a pair of high-top Reeboks.

Somewhere I've been: The Residenz, in Munich. I was taken to see lots of different tourist attractions when I lived in Munich, but we stumbled across the Residenz accidentally - and it was one of my favourite palaces, mainly because of its size. Go to one of Ludwig's castles, and you'll get a half-hour tour of six or seven rooms; at the Residenz, you walk through at your own pace, and it'll take you hours because there are dozens of rooms to look at.

Somewhere I'd like to go: Rome. The kidlet's appearance unfortunately prevented us getting to Italy on this trip, so the Forum will have to wait for now.

Someone I know: A friend from uni, whose name I'm not going to use here, so you'll just have to believe me when I tell you her name starts with an R. She just had a baby (like me), and I'm very excited to go home and compare the two of them. (The kidlet is going to win the comparison, obviously...)

A film I like: Romeo+Juliet. It came out just when my class was studying the play, and will always be one of my favourite examples of ways to do Shakespeare.

A book I like: You didn't half pick a hard letter, [personal profile] frayadjacent! It took me hours to even think of a book I'd read beginning with R! There are no Agatha Christie's, even! In the end, I could think of four I've read: Return of the King, Rowan of Rin, The Renegades of Pern, and Runaways. Of these, RotK is boring (I've never been a fan of Tolkien's prose), Rowan of Rin is an excellent kids book, but harder to get into as an adult, The Renegades of Pern is one of the best Pern books - but that's not really saying much, and Runaways is awesome. As long as you stop reading when Brian K Vaughn stopped writing, that is.
For those who haven't heard of it: Runaways is a Marvel comic book, about a bunch of teenagers whose parents are supervillains. The kids themselves are a superhero team, and are rather awesome. If you are in any way a comic book reader, I suggest you get hold of this one.
deird1: Wes and Lilah in bed, with text "you called this a relationship" (Wes Lilah relationship)
Going slightly different on this one. While I can (and will) mention my favourite romance, I thought I'd mention all my favourite romances. Or, in fact, pretty much pair off as many characters as possible.

I'm going to finish this meme, dammit, no matter how long it takes me...

deird1: Dawn, with text "troublemaker" (Dawn troublemaker)
Okay. For the character-focused days, I'm going to have two answers: one for BtVS, and one for AtS. Otherwise Day 5 is going to be way too hard to answer.
