I voted for Relena on the ground that she'd spend a lot of time out of the apartment, stalking Heero.

Ohhh, I like your Relena reasoning. I voted Heero, as he could fix my computer and would likely be out on missions a lot. Plus, I'm sure he'd leave the school in a week after the latest political development, leaving me with a single!

I picked Heero too, and this was exactly my reasoning! XD

Zechs, because you could steal his bird mask. I'm not sure why, but it appeals to me. He might have bird-mask-being-stolen angst.

I would totally have Lymond for a roommate! Because you know there are going to be those times when the girls across the hall leave their wet clothes in the washer for two days straight or that guy across the way won't stop bellowing at his drunk friends, and if you are not a confrontational person you want a roommate who can handle your neighbors so that they stay handled, right, and Francis would totally fix their wagons. Maybe he would fix their wagons by killing them but I would not ask and he would not tell. Also he would be practicing his lute or his spinet or whatever in the middle of the night and I would find it a little annoying, but it would be worth it because the neighbors would find it even more annoying but they would be afraid to say anything.

YES! I like your reasons even better than mine.

I would like to hear the lute in the middle of the night.

Lymond. He would mostly be out of the country.

Relena and Heero tie for second because they'd also mostly out of the country/off the planet, but with Lymond, you at least know when he's coming back. People start talking about it, see.

Akito and Alec would never leave the room, and would be up having disturbing sex at weird hours. Gollum would never leave the room, and would be up muttering freaky things at weird hours.

Zechs probably doesn't take off his helmet to sleep, and would wake you up banging it against the wall during his nightmares about his tragic childhood. And he'd totally claim how his hands are too stained with blood to clean up those wads of his hair piling up the corners.

Hee!

"Lymond is back."

The news spread quickly in taverns and inns and castles. Sometimes the name was said with disgust, sometimes with curiosity, sometimes with contempt. "Lymond is back," each man would say, and then lower his voice. "Though what I mean by that is, his reanimated corpse."

Gollum. Besides being the only one out of that list I know, he'd mostly keep to himself, stroking his preciousss. (...ew, but, heh.) And we both like fish!

As to the odds of being murdered in my sleep... well, perhaps introducing him to a good expectorant would make of a better disposition.

I voted for Sid, because....omfg how can you not vote for Sid? Showing that I grew up in the seventies. 2nd choice was Lymond.

Actually, I think people *will* read a a single huge post, but that breaking it up will make replying easier.

From: [identity profile] sartorias.livejournal.com


Alec would just talk, and be entertaining, if a slob. Lymond, I'd simply have to kill because otherwise his ego would squash everything in sight.

FYI, 10K words is likely to be too large for a single post anyway. (It's actually charcount, and I don't know the actual limit, but one runs afoul of it at just the wrong moment.) I suggest breaking the essay in two, with linkies one to the next (and back) at both top and bottom of each post. People will tend to bookmark the first post, so providing your own linkies is key.

Gollum is gross, as a roommate, but I can exile him to the bathroom and he'll actually enjoy it. More bedroom for me!

From: [identity profile] rachelmanija.livejournal.com


Oh, thanks. I'll do that. (Break it up with links at top and bottom, not exile Gollum to the bathroom.)

Besides, think about your own email account. Doesn't lj duplicate the post being responded to when it sends you the email notification of a comment?

From: [identity profile] rilina.livejournal.com


Lymond. He spends years at a time away, and would at least be entertainingly self-destructive when he came back.

From: [identity profile] gaudior.livejournal.com


...I'm trying to think of a way to explain why I picked Akito that isn't mega-spoilery.

Um...I suppose I'll go for, "cuz I'd love to see what he's like when he's not around his family," and leave it at that.

From: [identity profile] vom-marlowe.livejournal.com


Akito! I have no idea why. Because I like beautiful, mad, brilliant people? And because Akito needs to get out more. I could teach him to cook, and he could teach me to um, droop beautifully, or something.

I'd pick Alec, except I'd kill him in about two minutes, probably for touching my books.

From: [identity profile] umbo.livejournal.com


The only two I'm familiar with are Gollum and Sid Vicious, and I wouldn't want either one as a roommate, so I didn't vote. But I second the comment about about 10,000 words most likely being too long to fit in a single post.

From: [identity profile] readsalot.livejournal.com


Relena, for very shallow reasons--she's rich, and would probably be buying new things so often that she'd just have to give me the not-so-new ones. So I'd have an iPhone by now.

From: [identity profile] oracne.livejournal.com


Francis Crawford, because he won't get in my way--he'll be too busy with his own convoluted plans and crippling angst. Also, he would be picturesque.

From: [identity profile] cofax7.livejournal.com


1. Depends on the structure of the essay: can the separate pieces be understood independently? If not, post it all together.

2. I picked Lymond, mostly because he'd be entertaining, and he would probably ignore me in favor of going out and fighting battles. Besides, I might get to meet Alec Guthrie or Danny Hislop... *g*

From: [identity profile] gaudior.livejournal.com


By the by-- is there a reason behind this second question, or did you just think it was awesome? (You are correct, if so).

From: [identity profile] rachelmanija.livejournal.com


The latter!

The ginormous post is on PTSD, and I wanted to cheer myself up.

From: [identity profile] yhlee.livejournal.com


I actually have no preference on how you post your essay, but if a large Gundam is holding a cannon to my head, I'll go with the single post so I don't lose track of the other piece(s).

I went with Alec because (I suspect, from evidence in Privilege of the Sword) that we have certain disturbingly compatible scholarly interests. We could talk about mathematics and stuff. Also, he would be someone I could bitch to about how irritating small children are, and he would agree with me. And yeah, so he's erratic, temperamental, and self-destructive, but I'm not in any position to complain of those qualities in someone else.

From: [identity profile] jinian.livejournal.com


Alec is the most entertaining one in the list, and I have the advantage of being female: less likely to get his enmity for no reason, and highly unlikely to be killed by Richard if I did. (The people picking Akito must be less afraid of physical abuse than I am, or more willing to hit back.)

From: [identity profile] amberley.livejournal.com

Why choose?


Or maybe all eight of those should move in together in a big house just like MTV's Real World. Only with even more backstabbing and treachery.

From: [identity profile] lady-ganesh.livejournal.com


I picked Akito because I wouldn't mind being bitchy to him. Yeah, I'm that lame. I don't know many of the others that well.

I would break it up into two posts; one with comments disabled, and with comments enabled on the second part. There are limits on the length of LJ posts anyway, so planning it that would would be far easier on your sanity, I think.

From: [identity profile] rurounitriv.livejournal.com


I went for Heero. He's scenic, he doesn't care what you do as long as you don't annoy him, interfere with his missions, or touch his laptop, and you just know that you'll score major cool (and scary) points just by being willing to sleep in the same room with the Death Glare Kid. Plus I could probably get some major assistance with computer problems and/or annoying neighbors by helping him with the little problems of life like distracting Relena. XD

From: [identity profile] dormouse-in-tea.livejournal.com


I friended you after you started posting the essay, so I'm skipping that part, but on the second question?

If those are my options, that Gundam damn well better pull the trigger.
