A questions meme!

-Comment with "What is a week-end?"
-I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can get to know you better.
-Update your journal with the answers to the questions.
-Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions. (If you want. Totally optional.)

Questions provided by kmo_lj

1) What is the meaning behind your username?
It's rather embarrassing, really... but I got into LJ (and many other online communities) when I was younger and rather obsessed with Dragonlance, especially with a certain Elven king, Kith-Kanan, who was an amazing guy in the books, an elf who went ahead to found a totally new elf nation which wasn't an elf nation, but one where dwarves, humans, elves and half-elves could live together peacefully and happily... So, since my first name (well, technically nickname) is Koby, and that sounded similar enough to make a good combination, I took to naming myself Kith-Koby on internet communities.

2) What is your favorite tv show/book/movie from your childhood?
Well, that depends on what you term 'childhood'. But if we're talking until I became a teenager, my favorite show was either Digimon or Sailor Moon (but only Sailor Moon S, because it has the Outers being awesome), my favorite book was The Swiss Family Robinson, and my favorite movie was National Geographic's Natural Disasters.

3) Do you have any strange hobbies or quirks?
Um... Does fangirling count? I like to do an in-depth analysis of what I read or watch, especially characters... and I suppose some people might consider my constant study of the Babylonian Talmud odd.

4) What are your three favorite narrative or literary kinks?
Ooh, this is hard. Well the first is obvious. Powerful women. kmo_lj knows all about this, it's our type. Which leads me to my second favorite, anti-heroes or complex villains, generally somewhere between Type I and Type IV, with a preference for Type III (Haruka and Michiru and Homura (Akemi) are excellent examples. Lastly, good world building. That was what ruined Harry Potter for me, before all the plot holes and wangst and books written for kids read by grownups caught up with me. It's why I love Lord of the Rings, and went on to read anything of Tolkien I could find, even The Shibboleth.

5) If you had unlimited time, ambition and skill, what fic would you most want to write?
No question whatsoever here. Melisande fics until the end of the world. Also, more history of Terre d'Ange. And if we're doing dreams, Symrustar Auglamyr in several different worlds, including the Kushiel Series, Harry Potter, and a few other worlds.
Also, maybe my crossover of doom for awesome somewhat-villainous women, including Emma Frost, Melisande, Azula, Regina, Symrustar, Morgana...
