Five ways in which Cameron is less naïve than House believes her to be. - [livejournal.com profile] jedi_penguin
1. She knows what she wants.
2. She understands that sometimes she's wrong.
3. She understands that sometimes, House is wrong.
4. She knows she's less sincere than she seems.
5. She doesn't really want House to love her.

five ways Ann finished her letters to Paula! - [livejournal.com profile] mayhap
1. Sincerely your (biggest fan), Ann
2. Thanks again!, Ann
3. ... a still blushing and very flustered, ANN
4. I love you too, Ann
5. Sincerely yours,

Five Bible Verses Caleb Failed to Read? - [personal profile] elementalv
[I totally googled for the cites. Don't be scared.]
1. Matthew 5:4
2. Genesis 1:27
3. Micah 6:8
4. Mark 9:35
5. Galatians 3:28

Five Reasons Mac Thought She Was in Love with Beaver - [livejournal.com profile] alixtii
1. He was pretty.
2. Unlike, oh, say, Veronica Mars, he seemed to like her back.
3. He could make her laugh.
4. He didn't think there was anything wrong with her being a devious computer hacking genius.
5. His was a lifestyle she thought should have been hers.

Five Stories Joss Whedon Will Never Write - [livejournal.com profile] alixtii
1. The one where Wesley and Fred magically come back to life and live happily ever after. Well. At certain people's instigation, he's written the first part. But then they (Wesley and Fred. Not he and Amy and Alexis) are eaten by zombies. It's just a thing.
2. The one without a teenaged female superhero. Because that would be wrong.
3. The one about how all these people do their jobs and do a great job and have functional relationships and then they don't die for a long time.
4. The one without zombies, vampires, or superpowers.
5. The one where everyone stays clothed all the time. (Because that, too, would be wrong.)

Five Times the White House Support Staff Saved the Free World - [livejournal.com profile] alixtii
1. When Donna accidentally forgot to book Josh's flight to a troubled developing nation, and thus inadvertently prevented him from being assassinated which would have started a catastrophic series of wars that would have ended civilization as we know it. (At least. That's what Donna tells Josh when he yells at her about it.)
2. When Bonnie and Ginger stayed at the White House till three in the morning keeping the coffee fresh and Toby's pencils sharpened, so he could write the address that sold Congress on the aid package that saved millions of lives in South America.
3. When Carol fixed a typo in a briefing memo so that CJ correctly said that peace talks were "progressing" and not "regressing."
4. When Donna, acting on a hunch, let the (other) (younger) little blonde girl have an interview with Josh so she could tell him all about the vampire situation in southern California.
5. When Margaret held all Leo's calls one afternoon so that he could get some sleep so that he could more faithfully advise the President in situations of national crisis, one of which arose, coincidentally, that evening.

Five Dances River Will Never Dance Again - [livejournal.com profile] alixtii
1. When River was five, she and her best friend (and Simon, when they could convince him) played Ring a Ring o' Roses till they were flushed with laughter and exertion, but when Regan caught them, the friend was banned from the house, and they weren't allowed to play again. "The plague's no laughing matter."
2. When River was ten, she was the youngest ballerina in ninety years to dance (to perfection) the title role in Coppélia. (She won't, she won't, dance it again.)
3. When River was thirteen, she taught herself every party dance from the waltz to the Electric Slide to the Electric Eel, in case she was ever invited to a party.
4. Once, she tried to teach Simon to tango.
5. Kaylee asked Inara to teach them both the Ritual of the First Veil, and Inara tried, but River kept slipping when she tried to bow, and Kaylee kept falling, and eventually, Inara gave up.

And one for me:
Five elements that would be present in My Ideal TV Show:
1. Written by Joss.
2. Featuring Allison Janney.
3. About gifted teenagers.
4. Set in an apocalyptic future, or possibly in space (OR BOTH).
5. People are very good at their jobs, except when they become too emotionally invested, and then people die.

I'd love to hear your answers to that last one! (For your own ideal TV shows. Obviously. ALthough if you wanted to point out something obvious I've missed for mine, that would be okay too.)

And with that, I'm off! See you on Thursday! (NGIP)

Thank you! The one about being less sincere than she seems and knowing that about herself: I never would have thought of that myself but it feels true. I'll be thinking about that for a while. Also, I'm the lone stubborn hold-out who's never seen "West Wing," but that list made me laugh anyway.

Where's the sexy mentor figure for yours? As for mine:

1) A big damn hero for the main character.
2) A supporting character who appears one-dimensional but is actually very complicated. We'd see a new contradiction in this character every week. Although s/he would be more interesting than the main character, the big damn hero would never lose his/her prominence.
3) The two prettiest people on the screen would NEVER get together or flirt or even have decent chemistry. All the shippy UST would come from characters that would appear unlikely on the surface but make sense given their personalities.
4) When the big damn hero gets tired, the supporting characters would take over. The hero gets a rest and never becomes a bitch or a pathetic woobie.
5) A nice mixture of brain power and heroics saves the day, with smart people and strong people being equally helpful to the cause.

I love the West Wing support staff one! So very Donna. And someone needs to write the Buffy crossover.

I recognized Micah 6:8 immediately, and I could figure out which verse from early Genesis you were referencing by the context, but I totally had to look up the other ones. And I looked them up in my paper Bible, because I'm lazy and I had three Bibles in easy reach and I was too lazy to direct my browser to an internet bible like the Skeptic's Annotated (the one I usually use).

I'm interested in the thought process behind 5:4; it doesn't strike me as the most obvious Beattitude to present itself.

I am very happy Joss will never write stories 2-5. Because they would be wrong.

All of your lists really capture the characters involved quite beautifully.

I think your ideal TV show would also be my ideal TV show. Definitely 1, 3, and 4, and 2 is always a good thing as well. . . .

Thank you for the note about spoiler-free-ness! And yes, support staff are seriously made of win. I adore #1.

River Dances... #2 is so painful in that good way.
