List your fandoms (all the ones you really love). Under each one, name your three favorite moments from the said fandom.
No cop outs. Three canonical moments. Not "any scene where blahblah happened".
Only three. Yes, this is meant to be a pain in the ass.

-Stargate Atlantis

1. The look on Rodney's face as he picks up the big vial of enzyme and says "that's one heck of a karate chop", or something to that effect. I was distracted by the ACTING on Hewlett's face. ("The Hive", 2.11)

2. The horrible smile on John's face when he tells Rodney that he has a shot of regaining his trust. It hurts, because it's SO obvious that John's heartbroken, Rodney's destroyed, and they both want to make this go away but know they can't. ("Trinity", 2.06)

3. The tricks that Rodney's mind plays on him when he's stuck in the Jumper at the bottom of the ocean. Again, horrible and makes my stomach clench, to know that his own mind is against him, but trying to save his life. ("Grace Under Pressure", 2.14)

-House, M.D.

1. Jimmy at Greg's door with his overnight bag and sheepish expression. And Greg is completely unsurprised.

2. The smile Greg gets after Jimmy breaks his cane. Sitting on the floor, realization dawning, big smile.

3. A small thing in a well-known scene: When Jimmy's been sacked and is cleaning out his office. You know the one. The small thing? Watch Greg's hands. As he talks, he starts taking things out of the boxes again. So subtle. So lovely.

-Doctor Who

1. Tenth Doctor, "The Impossible Planet", this exact exchange:
Ten: Excuse me, ah, Zach, wasn't it?
Zach: That's me.
Ten: Just... stand there, 'cause I'm gonna hug you, s'that alright?
Zach: Suppose so.
Ten: *moves forward* Here we go.... Comin' in.
Ten and Zach: *HUG!*
Ten: Human beings, you are amazing! HA! *lets go* Thank you.

2. Ninth Doctor, "Boom Town", when Mickey shows up at the TARDIS and is So Not Welcome. Jack flirting, Nine being cute, Rose being gung-ho. Nine/Rose/Jack is the only OT3 I can actually see as more than an excuse to write a threesome. They are just the wonderteam.

3. Ninth Doctor, "Rose", the first meeting: "By the way, I'm the Doctor, what's your name?" "R-Rose." "Nice to meet you, Rose. *INSANE* Run for your life!"


1. At the end of 1.02, "Uncertainity Principle", when Alan finds out that Charlie gave Don a lecture on Heisenburg's principle before he goes into a firefight and Alan's all, "Dude?" and Charlie smiles and says over the rim of his drink, "It worked, didn't it?" The cuteness, the smugness, and the "well, it worked, yeah?"

2. In The Gambling Episode, (2.13, "Double Down"), in the auditorium, when Larry's looking over gambling equations and just isn't paying attention. And Charlie just says, stern but soft, "Lawrence." and Larry's suddenly back to the real world. I love it. That Charlie starts to Get It, that this is a big bad thing with Larry. And that he knows exactly how to get Larry back to reality.

3. In 2.15, "Running Man", after Charlie admits to have put Ron Allen under the spotlight and Larry just guilt trips the fuck out of him and Charlie ducks his head and you know he's two steps away from being sent to his room to think about what he's done. I love it.

Your turn, FList.
