I've just been watching The American President. I haven't watched it in a while and it is my absolute favourite romcom.

"I didn’t send 466 to the floor to win you back."
"And I didn't come back because you sent 466 to the floor."

I am such a dork.

Anyway. There is a need for me to post today. Today is the one year anniversary of the release of Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, which means it is the one year anniversary of the death of James Norrington, which means it is the beginning of the trend of every single favourite character of mine always having to die.

Seriously: James Norrington, Nymphadora Tonks, Noah Bennet,* Lucius Vorenus, Caroline Price, Amber Volakis. Then if you add characters which I like but aren't my favourite, the list gets longer: Sam Tyler, Fred Weasley, Mad-Eye Moody, Weatherby Swann, Owen Harper** Toshiko Sato. Nathan Petrelli may be dead (damn, what is with Heroes and nearly killing Nathan every season finale?). The list goes on.

* Okay, so he rose from the dead via miracle blood, but for a whole five minutes there I was devastated.
** I would not have though he would have made the list this time last year. Congrats Torchwood writers.

Will the needless slaying of adored characters please end.

Can we count Sam Tyler as "dead" because he exists ~*somewhere*~ even if it is the 1973 in his mind ;)

NATHAANNNNN. I'm crossing my fingers for Nathan not to die (where is that damn miracle blood when you need it?)

I hope Who doesn't continue the trend of killing off your favourite characters. :(

Well, I don't really think Sam's dead in 1981 anyway, and he's going to show up at some point - but the characters seem to think he's dead so he's on the list.

Have you seen those teasers floating around for season three of Heroes? They feature not one but two characters whose lives were hanging in the balance at the end of season two. I'm very happy.

As for Who, I'm hoping the bad luck with characters is a one year only thing and it officially ended today *crosses fingers*

Haven't seen the Heroes teasers, sadly. I admit I haven't been keeping up with the Heroes news lately, but I can't wait for it to return.

*crosses fingers also*

God, I love The American President. The only romantic comedy I like. XD I've seen it about 75927402 times. *is dorky too*

The best characters get killed, it's really annoying. *grrs* Also, it is awesome that you like Amber too. Most everyone on my friends list either hated her entirely and are glad she's dead, or only cared enough about her presence/death for the effect on the House/Wilson ship. *flails* AMBER WAS AWESOME GUYS.

I've watching TAP about that many time as well, so many that I'm not even slightly weirded out anymore with Martin Sheen being the Chief of Staff.

I don't get why people hate her. She's House, but female (okay, I may have just answered my own question there), and better adjusted. I adore her.

Oh god, I seriously started screaming very late in the night. Those two are supposed to be fucking immortal, goddamnit.

It was so cruel. I was hoping against hope that she would not kill of Percy (because I looooove Percy) and then Percy gets a reprieve ONLY FOR FRED TO DIE.

You are cruel JKR. Very cruel.

You know she killed off MY REMUS because she let Arthur live? I was heartbroken, but doing okay, because you can handwave it as the story and things happen in that situation. BUT THAT'S JUST FUCKED UP and totally colored my perception of her and the story.

Oh, don't get me started on the Remus and Tonks thing. She had to make Remus a dad, in the process completely sidelined Tonks, make me hate Remus because he walked out on his pregnant wife, and completely ruined my OTP for me.
