Snog/marry/throw off a cliff meme

In the latest round of snog(for which, read 'shag' it's a long time since I was in the snogging market!)/marry/throw off a cliff, the lovely saintvic was kind enough to give me the following three choices:

Ten, Bodie, Illya.

(How in God's name are you supposed to throw one of those lovelies off a cliff???)

OK, after much thought (well, a bit),


Snog/shag (I’ll take option 2, if I may!):

Bodie. This was the easy one. Powerful, dangerous, a cheeky sense of humour that gives one to imagine he’d be fun in the bedroom. Handcuffs all ready on the bed (anyone out there still not know about my handcuff kink? XD) Gorgeous, obviously, and smoulderingly seductive. Great for a one-night stand.

On the down side, clearly a commitment phobe, equally clearly devoted to Doyle (and who am I to stand in the way of that?) and he treats his girlfriends with breathtakingly sexist contempt. Also, I detest any female characters who manage to snare his affection on principle, which means I would have to deal with all sorts of tricky self-loathing issues were I the one to pin him down. So – shag. Deffo.

Marry:

Illya. He’s enigmatic, and doesn’t give his affections away lightly – Napoleon is very much the one who’s prepared to flirt and seduce to get what he wants, although girls (understandably) adore Illya. I suspect he’d be very difficult to win over (and who doesn’t enjoy a challenge?) but, once won, he’d be deeply loyal and committed. Also, protective, which is nice as far as it goes, but without that lack of respect for femalekind that so often accompanies this. And, the clincher, highly intelligent, which is absolutely and by far my number one priority when it comes to a long-term partner – I get bored easily! And the accent – to die for! And he could help me improve my Russian.

Cliff:

(And oh, how I hate you for making me do this) Ten. BOO! He’d be my ‘marry’, given half a chance, and probably my ‘shag’ as well. Of the three, he’s my favourite, and yet see him plummet! And why? Purely because, given the nature of the three, he’s the most able to survive and/or think his way out of the horrors of a cliff fall. At worst, he could regenerate at the bottom (not an ideal scenario, as then he’d be Matt Smith, which isn’t the same thing at all!)

What you don’t know (heh, heh) is that, prior to shoving him off the top of Beachy Head, I’ve programmed the TARDIS to materialise around him mid-drop. Naturally, he’d be so grateful for the unexpected salvation that he’d immediately want to shag me. And then marry me.

How about that? I win!!! XD

Handcuffs!


I've said it before and I'll say it again. What's impressed me the most about all of these is the logical *cough* reasoning we've all applied to answering them. I found myself nodding thinking "well, yes, that makes sense."

I cliffed Nine for very similar reasons. The ability to regenerate makes it rather the obvious choice doesn't it? I've noticed that Jack Harkness hasn't been fairing very well for similar reasons. :D

I've been meaning to mention although you're probably more technically savvy than me, that under "manage your account" (the display tag) you can tick a box to replace embeded vids with a place holder. You'll still see a little icon you can click on if you want to try to watch the vid but in the meantime it really cuts down on your load time. I have high speed cable and I've still noticed a difference on days where lots of friends have loaded vids.

Re: OTIK

Ooh thanks - most sensible. I'll do this. :)

Yeah, that's amused me. We're all approaching this with a great deal of solemnity, suspending disbelief completely, as if there were a real chance that we will actually get the chance to apply these choices! The hell with reality! :D

You do really have to cliff the one most likely to survive, don't you? Although, as Faws pointed out, there might be some question mark over A2A!Gene.

Oh, very smart of you!
I like how plotty yu were to, not only manage to not kill any of them, but also to get at least a very good shag, and probably, a proposal.
Smart, smart girl indeed!

Yeah! :DD I was somewhat in despair over throwing Ten off a cliff, even with the regeneration thing, until I thought my way out of it. Happy now!

I think you've got these in precisely the correct order. I might, if I were feeling particularly feminist at any precise moment, swap the "shag" and "cliff" categories, but most of the time I'm probably with you. Ten plays the clown and his mouth goes non-stop. I'd be apt to give him a subtle nudge when he stepped too close to the edge, just to get him to shuddit for a couple of seconds while he regenerated.

Hmm yes, I can see that. There are times when Bodie's sexism irritates me to the point where I could consider him for the drop, but the handcuffs on the bed can't be overlooked lightly! :D

That's a delicious icon, btw.

Spasiba! I was watching a fan-vid or something (it wasn't an episode) and they were passing by each other or IK made a snarky remark, and I thought, "Oh yes, THAT RIGHT THAR," and grabbed a screen cap.

Oh, very well thought out! I am particularly impressed with the way you would not stand in the course of true love, and would happily fill the sublimation role for a good (I am sure) time. Meanwhile, Illya is an excellent choice, and I like the added incentive of improving your Russian. Very practical. As for Ten--oh, yes, the TARDSIS would definitely be pre-programmed. Can you doubt it?

There's simply no point in coming between Bodie and Doyle, as many girls in canon have discovered. However, it does seem perfectly possible to distract his attention for a night! :D

I like the added incentive of improving your Russian.
Ooh, me too! I've learnt a bit, having ben luucky enough to visit Moscow a couple of years ago, but the kind of vocabulary I'd be encouraging Illya to teach me just wasn't really covered in depth in the grammar books!

Okay I was rather derailed for a while but the Bodie, handcuffs thing but I have finally managed to get my brain working again.

And yes all very logical, well thought out and I approve completely. You do indeed win. *g*

Of course I hope that now you managed to figure this out you aren't too unhappy with me for the evil choices *looks hopeful*

Hell no! I managed to shag all three, one way or another - what more could a girl ask? XD
