Character Meme-Take 3--Eliot Spencer

[livejournal.com profile] trulybloom and I noticed that with all the bouncing back and forth with names...none of us had picked anyone from Leverage so we both agreed to do one for Eliot. I solemnly swear I have not read her entry (if she's completed it) so any similarities are purely coincidental.

1. Do you like this character?

I do. He's fun. He's sarcastic. He doesn't use guns, but can beat the shit out of people (politely!). He wields a knife very well! (Yeah, I like a well-used knife).

2. What name/s do you call this character?
Eliot...honestly, I don't really see him as a nick-name type of guy. He's very up front. I might refer to him as a cowboy, but I don't think I'd call him that.

3. What image-color do you associate with this character?
Gray. That's the way he sees the world. Life isn't black and white to him. It's shades of gray. He's spent more time on the wrong side of the law than the right, but he knows what the right side is and he's got his own set of moral and legal codes and he doesn't break them. And he feels it when people he "trusts" breaks them. Image--a knife. Definitely a knife.

4. What image-song do you associate with this character?
This is hard...because I'm temped to say "Different Kind of Knight" which is always the first song I associate with him. (And yes, I realize it's one of Chris's songs). So I'll say that is his theme song. But for fighting...something hard, pounding, rough beat...but not heavy metal or true country. For seduction...slow and sweet, something he can use to truly seduce the woman. He may sleep with woman, but he will seduce if he has the time and patience I believe. I don't have anything specific in mind though.

5. What blood-type do you think this character is?
AB, rare unusual. Prickly.

6. What character do you like to put this character with?
Hardison. The two of them together are hysterical and they are fun to play off. Sophie is also fun. Honestly all of the team is fun to play with. And my friend Daren's description of Parker is spot on!

7. What would you want to say to this character?
Thanks for becoming a good guy. (Although honestly I think it was there all along. Think about it. A truly bad guy...wouldn't have continued with the team or kept going with all the issues.) Deep down I think Eliot was just looking for an excuse to stay on the "right side" of the law.

8. Which do you want to do with this character: Shake hands, hug, or kiss?
Shake hands. Think about it...would you do anything else to this guy without permission? Honestly he's so closed in, I'd let him make the first move.

9. Please choose 6 friends with your choice of character.
I've done enough of these (I think 3 is my limit). So if ya want someone...I'll swing one your way...but I've done enough! I may do this for a few of my original characters though...I am having fun with these!

Funny to read the similarities between yours and mine, but I think there were more differences!

I'd made a table of our two entries, a side-by-side comparions, but I think it'd be too big to fit in a comment.

I do like how you wrote his blood type was "prickly." That made me laugh.

Yeah I think there were too. We do think a little the same, but not that much.

Remind me later and I'll try to do up a table of the two entries and we can compare them. It would be interesting.

*giggles* And I loved your 'snake venom'.

So I finished my write-up for Leverage. Lemme know what you think:

Wow, that's HUGE! You've done so much work for this - excellent!

Typo: "didn't pay them, and tried to kill him" <-- should be "tried to kill THEM"

That's an awesome pic of Parker - but you might want to shrink it down - it's way too wide for most (all?) screens.

What are all those embeds below Hardison's picture? It would be nice if they had titles - so people could decide what to watch (if, for whatever reason they can't watch them all). Plus, it would enhance the layout to have more text in that section.

For the viewing order - where did you get that list? It would be nice to know if it was an offical source (like Devlin) or if fans came up with that order based on things within each episode or what.

What's up with the Sneak Peek section? Are those supposed to be links or pictures or what? I'm guessing this is still a Work In Progress?

Will you be linking the videos by Beth (forget what it's called, but it has her "Sharker" bit) and Aldis ("The Hand Job")?

I think what you have is great! There's so much really good information there! Lots of stuff that was new to me. And, it's the perfect place to send friends when trying to convince them to watch the show.

Hope my observations help!
