Seriously Geeky Sundays
It’s time again for Seriously Geeky Sundays, hosted by Heather of Just Geeking By! This week’s prompt is all about creativity and quirkiness in fandoms! Heather also has her May prompts already available, so be sure to check them out if you’re interested in joining. This one gets a bit existential and comic-heavy.
Freedom of the Press
What is your favorite fictional media outlet?
I honestly don’t know that I have a favorite fictional media outlet. To be honest, the only one I can think of off the top of my head is the Daily Bugle.
Who is your favorite fictional journalist?
Again, the only ones who come to mind are Clark Kent (he was actually a journalist, right? I’m not up on my DC as much as Marvel). And Peter Parker, but Spidey technically wasn’t a journalist. Okay, but question… what is it with comics and newspapers? Isn’t Supergirl also a journalist, or work at a news company or such? (I’ve only watched one episode of the TV series with Manthing, and I don’t remember much of it due to it being a bad depression day.)
Who is your favorite fictional photographer?
Okay, since all I can think of off the top of my head is Peter Parker, we’ll go with Peter Parker.
What is your favorite fictional interview?
Um? I don’t think I’ve ever run across one? And if I have, it obviously wasn’t very memorable.
If you could interview any fictional character, who would it be?
I’m going to be cheap and interview Ally and Lisa from Sunstone, because they come as a pair. And honestly, I’d just go for a sit-down hangout with them. They would be awesome folks to befriend. Their whole circle of friends would be awesome to befriend, really, let alone interview.
Which character would you like to see given an absolute grilling live on TV and why?
Oh heck. I’m not sure. I was trying to think of a character I see as fairly smarmy and unbearable, though not evil, and I’m not particularly thinking of any off the top of my head, except for one in an erotic comic I read. I mean, really, it’s just a porn comic.
In InCase’s Alfie (link obviously NSFW!!), there’s a character called Hana who is completely unbearable and very… old-fashioned in her view of the world. However, we’ve recently discovered how hypocritical she’s being (though she apparently doesn’t realize it). Every time I see Hana in a panel, all I can think to myself is “ugh”.
