Technically this is a meme. But it is late and I haven't written the other fandoms and really this isn't so much a meme as "Here are my thoughts let me tell them to you."

Harry Potter
01. The first character I fell in love with: Ah so long ago. Actually I think it might have been McGonagall. I really liked the first chapter, particularly the parts involving her, how could you not love someone who turns into a cat and snarks at people?
02. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now: Narcissa. (Andromeda would be the obvious answer but I'm the first to admit that my Andromeda, the Andromeda that I love, isn't really in the books at all, so while I didn't expect to love her the reasons I love her aren't anything to do with the source material.) On the other hand my summary of Deathly Hallows now reads: "Narcissa is awesome cakes! Trio fail DoE. Ted and Dean! Malfoys! Malfoys! Malfoys! Unmemorable stuff. OMG Narcissa just betrayed the Dark Lord to go find Draco. How could I love this woman any more. Neville becomes Chuck Norris. Oh, now she's running round the battle looking for him, that's how! Oh epilogue, excuse me while I throw up." I mean remember when we were introduced to her? Remember all the fanfics where she was beaten up by Lucius then rescued by Sirius? Now see how wrong they were? She is introduced to us as looking like she has just smelt something awful and at the end of the series she pretty much causes the death of Voldemort. And then I committed fanfic.
03. The character everyone else loves that I don't: This is a hard one. Mainly because it is very hard to say in Harry Potter fandom that everyone loves a character. It is just too big. I'd say Ginny but I know that I only think everyone loves her because I was marooned in Sugar Quill bay for so long. Oh, I'm not that keen on the Weasley twins. I mean I laugh at their stuff in the books but I've come to the realisation that if I had been at school with them I would have been the butt of their jokes and they can be very cruel. Also eventually I just feel sorry for Percy. 
04. The character I love that everyone else hates: Again difficult. Somewhere there is a Dobby Appreciation Society. I object to a lot of the Wormtail bashing but I wouldn't say he is a character that I love. Hmm honestly don't know. Pretty much all the characters I love have their little bands of defenders.
05. The character I used to love but don't any longer: Probably the trio. I mean I still like them but I'm sure that when I first read the books, before fandom, they were my "in" on the story. The fanfic I composed in my head was about them (sort of) and the first fics I read were about them (okay there were a blatant self insert that died, she was also passing information to the bad guys because they were threatening to kill her little sister, there was a revel, everyone thought that Ron and Harry had died, Hermione was raising the two next generation clones in the Muggle world, it was... actually better than many that made it on to the internet, sort of wish I'd actually written it now.) Anyway, fandom ensured that I moved away from them and while I still like them lets just say that they aren't the main draw any more.
06. The character I would shag anytime: Neville. I mean after DH who wouldn't? Lets face it we are all Neville groupies.
07. The character I'd want to be like: Can't I pick the traits I want from different characters? No? Well then McGonagall. Mainly because "it unscrews the other way."
08. The character I'd slap: Many of them. Seriously I have wanted to slap pretty much all of them at some point, even the ones I love, just because they need it. Ginny. But really I never would because she is far more vicious than I am and I don't want to be on the receiving end of any of her Bat Bogey Hexes. 
09. A pairing that I love: Currently? My Draco/Asteria. Though I actually find it harder to read fic about pairings that I love because I invariably go: "But that isn't how that happened!"
10. A pairing that I hate: To many fandom ones to name. Come on this is Harry Potter fandom. If I didn't hate a pairing I'd be thrown out! Canonwise. Not a fan of Harry/Ginny. Don't like the way it was executed and they just work better with other people.
12. My five favorite characters: Narcissa, Draco, Neville,
13. My five least favorite characters: Ginny,
14. Which character I am most like: Probably Hermione. Severe insecurities, difficulty relating to others, dislike of social situations, bookworm, fear of failure, fear of not living up to expectations.  Though if I had an ounce of Hermione's work ethic I wouldn't be typing this right now and I would have written up my BioChem notes.
15. My deep, dark fandom secret: I always wanted to be a BNF or just write the definitive something fic but procrastination got in the way.
