Meme (Recycled for Summer!)  
Taken from awanderingbard:

Name a character and I will tell you:
1) The most interesting canon fact about them
2) Something from my personal canon about them


All fandoms I write for and also just watch are open for this. Canon and original characters as well.

Would it be weird if I asked for Crow T. Robot? Or Tom Servo, if that is your preference? Can one even HAVE a personal canon for such characters?

Whenever I see these memes, I am always tempted to ask the person who posted them, "But who would you like to talk about? Because I'd be good with whoever that is! Really!" As it stands, I instead have a mild panic attack and and hope wildly that I haven't "chosen the wrong character" as I hit the "post comment" button. XD

AHAHAHAAAA!!! It'd definitely be a challenge but so hilarious to think about for the MST3K characters. I'd actually have a harder time thinking of a canon fact since there isn't too much available.

Memes should never bring about panic! Only love and sunshine!

HEE! Oh, like I'd be able to tell the difference! You could tell me, in the #1 slot, "Whenever Crow desires to sleep, he always does so with a peanut butter and pickle sandwich beneath his mattress. He doesn't know why. It's just always been that way." and I'd believe it. XD

Really!? Oh! I've been deceived for so long!!

As a side note, I love it when people tag all of their meme posts. You know what? I'm in the mood for a meme. I might dig through the ones you've posted and grab one that you posted 50 billion years ago, for entertainment's sake. PREPARE YOUR TAGS FOR IMMINENT SEARCHING.

Is that true about Crow? When was THAT revealed? See what I mean? I don't remember all the episodes of MST3K well enough for this.

*preparing myself* This probably means I should properly tag this meme. Heee...

Anyway, I give you the canon/personal canon of...

Tom Servo

1. His head is made out of a gumball machine.

2. His gumball machine head used to have prizes in it as well. But Crow got them all out, much to Tom's chagrin.

I made that "canon fact" up on the spot, but you know what? I kind of believe it. He would do something like that. O_o

Was it not tagged "meme" before!? I could have sworn I saw it! The magic of memery...it does strange things to me.

OH, YOUR FANON IS PERFECT. I shall weep tears of elation in its honor now. I quite like that idea. I can picture Crow laughing maniacally with cardboard cutouts of lightning swaying behind him as this procedure occurs. Meaning, as Crow sticks quarters into Tom Servo's mouth until the prizes are all empty. Ah, melodramatic bliss. *sighs*

I have found the meme I want. Doing it now! Mwahahahahahaa!!

He would! He totally would.

It was. You're right. I just...didn't remember correctly.

Meaning, as Crow sticks quarters into Tom Servo's mouth until the prizes are all empty.

He'd also use a pipe cleaner in Tom's mouth to get the prizes to come out.

Crow: I almost have the toy car! I almost got it!

Tom: Ge th hin ou ah maaahh!!

Yes! And Mike always makes sure the kitchen stays well-stocked with the right foodstuffs for this, otherwise Crow will moan and bitch at them all for for weeks about it, even though Crow only really sleeps like once or twice a year, and even then only because he's so bored of everything else that he just wants to "shake things up a little."

Of course, it's practically impossible to keep the food coming to their satellite so frequently, but it's just something Mike and Tom Servo have agreed to do for Crow's sake. They say it's because they don't want to deal with Crow being pissy, but secretly, it's because they love him and are enamored by his little idiosyncrasies. They'll just never say it in such a way, but the pickles are always fresh and the peanut butter always has a little smiley face carved into it when Crow pops the jar open, and something about that always makes him feel very cared about.

Sweet mercy, what am I doing here? Am I applying character depth to MST3K characters!? I think I might be! What is happening? I am confused and bewildered.

It was. You're right. I just...didn't remember correctly.

Oh noes! The memery got to your mind, too!!

And he shakes Tom rather frequently to try to get two prizes at once.

"I'm not built that way!" Tom shrieks, as his body is thrown through the air.

"I don't care!" Crow responds, his eyes lit with an inner glow. "I MUST HAVE THE PRIZES. ALL. THE PRIZES."

It's what you do. No character is safe!

Indeed. I have a sick mind. *G*

'Scrib, I have missed these late night rendezvous! How's it feel to be done all of your papers? :D

'Scrib, I have missed these late night rendezvous!

I've missed them as well!

How's it feel to be done all of your papers? :D

Amazing. I spent today sleeping, watching the last half of Shattered and had dinner and drinks with an old friend. Life seems so much less horrid now.

WHY DID I PICK THE MEME THAT INVOLVES TWENTY-FIVE SEPARATE FANFICS!? This is torture!!

I've missed them as well!

*squeezes you really-really tightly* Yay! Your return is gladly received. I shall prepare a banquet of all the choicest foods to celebrate! It will be magnificent.

That does sound like a really nice day. I went to a picnic, where I was offered a job referral by a family friend. I'm going back and forth about what to do about it. I need to sleep on the matter. Not sleeping just yet, though. :)

Life seems so much less horrid now.

Always a good thing!

Which meme are you doing??

What's the job?

This is the meme:

Post the first line from your 25 most recent fanfics and try to find a pattern.

I am finding patterns now. However, that's a favorite pastime of mine, so all is well. It's still taking time, though.

I shall e-mail that to you, I believe! One moment while I run to my account.

Um...I'll ask for...Ray Kowalski of due South fame, as we were just talking about that. :-)
formerly lifeinsomniacjoonscribble on June 24th, 2012 08:05 pm (UTC)
This gave me an excuse to go through a few episode recaps since I haven't seen this show in a bit.

Ray Kowalski

1. Has terrible eyesight. Although is an excellent shot with his glasses.

2. Likes Steve McQueen because McQueen always played loners who acted alone and used to think this was also his life.

Aww, 2 is sort of sweet and sad at the same time. So perfect. Ray is such a romantic. ^_^
formerly lifeinsomniacjoonscribble on June 25th, 2012 10:03 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I feel bad for Ray. He seems to get emotionally beaten up a lot. Or maybe just when he's around Stella.
