Fictional Character Dating Meme  
Stumbled across this one via [personal profile] selenak and simply couldn't resist...

Name a fictional character and I'll tell you three reasons I wouldn't want to date them. This entry was originally posted at http://www.dreamwidth.org/12345.html. Comment there or here, as you like. I'd be glad to reply to your comments over on DW.

Heh, I'm going to play this one with a John Crichton who's still on Earth, before the launching of the Farscape One module, because otherwise the answer might turn out rather brief: Aeryn. Wormholes. Scorpy. (Not necessarily in that order ;-))

So, let me think... Why on Earth would I possibly turn down a man so initially sweet, bright, creative, good-natured?

Well...

1) The more extroverted, fun-loving and somewhat more excessive aspects of his character. I guess that, at least in the long run, I probably wouldn't be able to cope with all the partying, the dozens of acquaintances/drinking buddies who are not really friends, and the booze. (This might be just my own personal 'fanon' for John, but I have a certain feeling a lot of his tendency towards drug abuse which we see in the UTs is actually innate and just lying dormant, untriggered.)

2) Physics. He's as married to them as James Kirk to his starship. (Just think of how relatively easy he was coping when being turned down by Alex in "Rhapsody in Blue", and Alex is the girl he originally wanted to propose to. And there's also the rather easy relationship he had with Olivia(?), the last girlfried he had before leaving Earth.)

3)Phew, reason number three...that's a hard one...
I'd probably hate moving to Florida, just so that ce could do his IASA thingy... ;-)
