TV Fairy Meme!  
Apparently, nobody wants to come visit a condo sales office in Windy Wintry Mix weather. Who knew? So, a fairy tale that doubles as a meme!

The story: A supernatural glitch in your DVR occurs. At first you panic, hitting lots of random buttons on your remote control, but then are RELIEVED to discover that no, your entire series recording of Golden Girls has not been deleted! But then, just as things appear to be back to normal, there's a puff of smoke, and a fairy appears! You have apparently freed the TV fairy from a televised hell in which she was made to watch endless reruns of Are You Hot?, and as fairies tend to be when freed, she is very grateful and wants to grant you magic wishes.

Now, the fairy has only TV-related powerz, and so she offers you the chance to go back in time and retroactively CHANGE the history of your favorite TV shows with 3.5 wishes!

You can go back in time and erase from the fabric of TV history THREE individual episodes of any TV show you want! The rest of the series(es) will not be altered. What do you choose?

1) Star Trek: Enterprise, "These Are The Voyages..." Seriously, people. It went back in time and made a fantastic Next Gen episode SUCK. Totally unacceptable! SO ERASED.

2) Star Trek: Voyager, "Fury." It makes no sense, takes the sweetest character who was once the compassionate heart of the show and turns her into a rampaging beeyotch (emphasis on RAMPAGING), and is just scary as all get-out. I'd rather Kes had never come back at all, and I think the rest of the universe agrees with me.

3) Star Trek: DS9, The One Where Quark Turns Into A Girl. Just. Yeah. I'm blocking it out, but I don't know how long the mental block will hold. It's even worse than Enterprise's "A Night In Sickbay" on the "omg, GET IT OFF MY RETINAS"-meter.

You can go back in time and revive ONE unfairly cancelled television show and return it to the annals of TV history!* *CHOOSE WISELY, because if you attempt to revive more than one show, the wish will backfire and you'll instead be treated to a whole bunch of crappy made-for-TV "reunion" movies full of replacement actors.

Enterprise! (Yes. More than Jake 2.0, even! However, I must admit that I seriously considered Temptation Island. WHAT!?)

To balance out the historical TV viewing schedule, you now have the power to retroactively CANCEL, at any point during the series, any one show! Alternately, you can weild your destructive might and DELETE one whole entire series from ever having been made.

7th Heaven. I just recently discovered that this show is STILL PRODUCING NEW EPISODES. It must be stopped.

LIFE AND DEATH! You can now bring ONE character back from the dead... and, to restore the balance, you must also kill off a character! They don't have to be from the same fandom.

Killed: Cally from BSG. And dewd, I haven't even watched the last season. But I would totally tune back in if there was to be bloodletting. No, no, Cally can live, if you can please off Rebecca from The Dead Zone. That would rule.

Revived: Janet Fraiser! Think of the CHILD, people.

Bonus tradeoff: you can delete a single scene, relationship pairing or plot arc from any series that gave you hives... AND you can plug in any one [scene, pairing, plot arc] that you never got to see!

Doomed Plot Arc: The X-Files, "Mulder gets abducted and then willfully abandones the mother of his baby!"

Should Totally Have Happened Plot Arc: Babylon 5, "Talia Winters returns as the new Psi Corps nemesis."

Send the fairy to some other DVRs:

So you don't have to do it, but I would love to hear what pellmelody, lisayaeger and medie would have to say about this, since y'all have some pent-up rage interesting fandom ideas! And anyone else who is willing, because yay, pleez do my meme and make me feel like less of a moron for concocting a meme about TV fairies.

That's how I felt! I spent an hour trying to think of what character I wanted to kill. The only way I chose was remembering my sister howling at the TV about it for hours on end last week. *shrugs*

OH X-FILES. The X-Files giveth and the X-Files taketh away.

You can go back in time and revive ONE unfairly cancelled television show and return it to the annals of TV history!

Um, hello, FIREFLY!

And, cancellation? Hrm, I'm sorry, but it must be Enterprise. WE WILL SAVE TEH CONTINUITY!
Little Red: sga - lizzie slightly evil - lilwitchymylittleredgirl on February 28th, 2007 03:29 am (UTC)
YAH, WHATEV, I don't share your firefly obsession. It was good! But I think there are still one or two episodes I didn't see, and it doesn't keep me up at night. :-P

redbeardredbeard on February 28th, 2007 04:11 am (UTC)
Damn hells year - we need more Temptation Island! I need Mark L. Whalberg to tool around more!
Little Red: xf - diana slut - liminallizmylittleredgirl on February 28th, 2007 06:20 am (UTC)

OMG, I need more Mark L. Wahlberg in my life. And half-naked scheming backstabbing. And open bars and hot tubs of random sexx0rz ON MY TEEVEE. Oh, and donuts at the _____ St. apartment. OH MY GOD, I HAVE FORGOTTEN THE NAME OF THE STREET!


I want a Mark L. Wahlberg icon so badly.
redbeardredbeard on February 28th, 2007 06:35 am (UTC)

And...The sizing is off, but you can adjust (I do this rarely)

Little Red: b5 - ivanova oven - crazybeemylittleredgirl on February 28th, 2007 06:37 am (UTC)

I will attempt to resize this for IMMEDIATE use. EEEEEEEEEK!
redbeardredbeard on February 28th, 2007 06:42 am (UTC)
I know. Just like I remember them...
Little Red: temptation islandmylittleredgirl on February 28th, 2007 06:48 am (UTC)
It got kind of fuzzified when I shrunk it but fuzzy Mark L. Wahlberg is better than NO MARK L. WAHLBERG AT ALL.

OMG, I am so scared of him. I think he might have hexed me through the television.

Best. Meme. Ever. The hardest thing was deciding which character to kill off - there are so many I dislike, but I do realise that, unfortunately, without a lot of them, the shows they're in wouldn't be as good. Damn.
Ash: facepalmbarker9 on February 28th, 2007 08:00 pm (UTC)
Fab meme. I remember that Girl!Quark ep. Weird.

Voyager - you know, they made room for the BABE. I liked Kes. *sighs*

Hmm, if I do this meme it might take me ages! I'll have go through all the shows I know! :)
Melody: Jack pellmelody on February 28th, 2007 10:01 pm (UTC)
Oooooo!! Another chance to rant voice an opinion. *rubs hands together evily*
