  2. Give me a LOST character: Charlie Pace

    Requested by skyeward-is-my-otp:

    How I feel about this character: He’s troubled, sad, and when I look at him, all I can see are the flaws. This says more about my weaknesses than Charlie Pace’s. I’m not Hugo, who loves unconditionally, who overlooks slights and insults. I’m not Lucy, who was actually, passionately in love with him, nor Liam, who after he got clean, wanted only for his brother to get clean, too.

    Then, in a moment of grace, we got to see Charlie as he really was in his soul, without the terrible burden of addiction. It’s when he appeared to Hugo in 4x01 at Santa Rosa: kind, tender even, trying desperately to get Hugo’s attention and “wake him up;” sympathetic with Hugo’s resistance, but still insistent that Hugo pay attention.

    All the people I ship romantically with this character:
    Charlie/Eko: I’m not kidding, and I’m not being lurid. For awhile, after Claire has thrown him out and he’s working on the church, he and Eko appear to be co-sleeping. If they sweeten each other’s nights, so much the better, because both are outcasts and alone at that point.

    My non-romantic OTP for this character:
    Charlie/Desmond: Charlie and Desmond are linked by this terrible bond of fate, as Desmond can see death pursuing Charlie like the “Hound of Heaven,” and neither of them can do a damn thing about it. It’s a bond far stronger than friendship or love, a giant mill wheel that grinds exceedingly fine. It has all the weight of Greek tragedy: Oedipus fleeing his fate only to find it in Thebes. In my view, this is the best part of Charlie’s story in LOST: the part that most provokes what the Greeks expected from tragedy: pity and terror.

    My unpopular opinion about this character: Charlie had far less influence on Claire, and far less emotional significance for her, than her relationships with Thomas (father of her child, who brutally abandoned her) and with MIB (during three years of captivity.)

    One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon: It made no sense to me that ghost-Charlie in 4x01 was so gentle and so together, when flash-sideways Charlie was such a mess. It would have been way better to have Charlie appear in the FSW as he did at Santa Rosa: like Boone, already “awake” and ready to serve as a spiritual guide for the others.

  5. Give me a LOST character: Claire

    OK, eclectictsunami, you got it.

    How I feel about this character: She’s an unsung heroine of LOST. She may look “weak,” even frail on the surface, but you’ve got to be tough when you’re eight months pregnant, having to “go” every 30 minutes, and the only bathrooms are either a pit latrine, or behind a tree.

    She gives birth in the bush without a hospital, doctor, anesthetics or baby nurses. With no one to show her, she gets great at breastfeeding. And she learns to mother under literal combat conditions, with Rousseau hovering around to baby-snatch. Not to mention getting whacked in the head, concussed, losing her memory, surviving two kidnappings by some very creepy men, then escaping it all with her sanity (mostly) intact.

    Besides, she’s a writer (here, and here.) I love her for that, too.

    All the people I ship romantically with this character:
    Hurley/Claire: I shipped it from the Pilot onward, especially through the first few episodes (for instance, in “Walkabout” they’re co-sleeping when the boar invade the fuselage.) Even if Hurley/Claire is a non-canon ship, it still appeals to me on a lot of levels, as well as being fun to write in fanfics set pre- or post-finale.

    Sayid/Claire: I got some vibes in S6, when Claire and Sayid are together in MIB-Locke’s camp and she keeps holding hands with him.

    My non-romantic OTP for this character: When Kate midwifed Claire, I sat on the edge of my seat, tears rolling down my face. I’ve had home births myself, and was dreading a typical mass-media birth scene. But this was the best one I’d ever seen on TV or in a movie. Claire birthed sitting up, instead of lying flat on her back. And Kate was so good at getting Claire to calm down, so that Claire could get that baby born. You just knew that bond between the two women was going to be really powerful.

    Later, at the end, Richard tries to get Claire to go with them to the Ajira plane. But although Richard’s heart was in the right place, it was Kate, not Richard, who talked Claire into it. I think it was due to the bond forged during Aaron’s birth, and it works for me that it continued the rest of their lives.

    My unpopular opinion about this character: I’m not fond of Charlie/Claire; I didn’t find it “cute;” nor did I find Charlie in any way endearing as a “substitute father.”

    Some of the truest lines were spoken by Claire to Locke in “Abandoned,” (2x06) when she complained, “You know, it’s like we’re playing mum and dad to this baby. Yet, I don’t remember marrying him … I mean, we’re practically strangers, him and me.” Personally, I would have far rather seen the other beach camp women take over helping Claire with Aaron, for Claire to have been at the center of a group of women helping her out. That would have been more consistent with Kate’s declaration on the night of his birth: “This baby is all of ours.”

    One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon: It broke my heart when Claire was kidnapped. I wish that hadn’t happened to her. Also, had Claire not been kidnapped, I could see her and Hugo staying on the Island, living together, and raising Aaron.

    Lost S01E19: “Deus Ex Machina”.

     
  7. Give me a LOST character: Sawyer

    Here goes, peekadora:

    How I feel about this character: This god-haunted Southern gothic figure out of a Flannery O’Connor novel had me roped in from the first episode. Riveting, tragic, trapped in a bitter cycle of revenge and beset at every turn by violence, Sawyer is one of the most watchable parts of LOST.

    Out of all the characters, I’d argue that he showed some of the most character development. In S1, he thinks he’s in Lord of the Flies, while in S6 he figures out what kind of story he’s really in, when he says to Jack, “How about you come down off the mountaintop and tell us what the hell the burning bush had to say for itself?”

    All the people I ship romantically with this character:
    Kate/Sawyer: I like all the Season 1-3 back-and-forth: the bickering, the bantering, the flirting, especially because of how Kate looks at him. And they share a kind of magical-realism moment when they both see the black horse.

    The “cage sex” scene to me is hot even though I don’t find Sawyer attractive. It’s because Kate wants him so much; finds him so sexually compelling, and looks and acts like it.

    Juliet/Sawyer: Then Sawyer has three great years with Juliet in the 1970s; that’s fine, too. In a lot of ways Juliet was good for him, although she never fully got over Edmund Burke’s and Ben Linus’s abuse, which made her insecure. In the end those insecurities ultimately won out, and that probably hurt Sawyer as much as her death.

    Claire/Sawyer: Had anything happened to Hugo in S4 (god forbid, but just saying), and had Claire made it back to the beach with Sawyer and Miles, I could see ConMama happening.

    My non-romantic OTP for this character: Hugo, definitely, especially after Season 3 when in “the lamest con ever,” Hugo tricks Sawyer into being nice. Then in Season 4, they form a great team. At first Sawyer only tolerates Hugo as a room-mate (“Me and Montezuma”), but before you know it, they’re tag-teaming each other to stay one step ahead of Locke, and Sawyer threatens to kill Locke if he hurts “one hair on [Hugo’s] curly head.”

    What a great bro-ship, and I have head-canon that it only gets stronger post-finale.

    My unpopular opinion about this character: I’m completely unmoved when he takes his shirt off.

    One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon: I can’t think of anything, offhand. His story arc’s pretty near perfect.

    Give me a LOST character: Sun Kwon

    Thanks, sassymerry!

    How I feel about this character: She’s one of the “Great Ladies of LOST Trio” (the others being Kate and Claire.)

    I want a Korean seinen-type graphic novel of her story arc. Just imagine: Gangsters, forbidden loves, treacherous prostitutes. Boy from the country marries the kingpin’s daughter, but pays a terrible price. Affairs that end in suicides that are really contract killings. Political intrigue in high places. Corrupt gov’t officials. Touching, sentimental scenes involving children and pets. Damn, I’d read all 30 volumes of it.

    I love that she gardens, too.

    All the people I ship romantically with this character:
    Sun/Jin: Their story has all the irony of a Greek tragedy, especially as Sun is the one who “sells” Jin into gangster bondage to her father early on in their marriage.

    Sun/Michael: IMHC she and Michael had an early Season 1 affair, during that time when she was so mad at her husband.

    Sun/Hugo: I think Hugo had his eye on Sun ever since Season 1 (“Your wife is hot;” that poignant shot at the end of 1x17 when he’s checking her out in her bikini; the goofy grin he gets when they’re waiting for Vincent to poop out her wedding ring.) He’s out of his depth, but then there’s that strange trip he makes to Seoul (which I turned into a Hurley/Sun fanfic.)

    My non-romantic OTP for this character: Kate, with whom she shares significant girl-bonding moments like revealing her use of English; taking a pregnancy test; trying to escape the beach camp to join Locke’s group at the Barracks.

    My unpopular opinion about this character: That Ji Yeon was Jae Lee’s child, not Jin’s, and that Sun was never in any danger. Which meant that their separation, death, and their daughter being orphaned was all in vain.

    One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon: I wanted to see more “Dragon Lady” Sun, running Paik Industries and putting dear old Dad in his place. Also, she and Jin should have at least gotten to spend one night together (privately, not in a Hydra Island cage) before drowning.
