Arrested Development! And Seeking Xander's "Skeletor"

Arrested Development! Tonight! YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAY!


I watch almost no TeeVee. But Friday nights in the summer has turned into TeeVee hell.

FOX is reshowing all of S2. Since someone (we won't mention names), lent S1 Arrested Development to BFF, I am now out my Arrested fix. So FOX has thoughtfully put up two hours of S2 Arrested episodes every Friday night for a pre-fall marathon.

From 8 p.m. to 10 p.m..

Oh, crap!

Opposite SciFi Fridays. *grumbles*

And I want to get some writing done tonight on Water Hold Me Down.


I mean, I have the Xander/alternaXander sections down, but I need to work on the Cleveland scenes with Faith and Giles. I've got a real itch to get started on those after suffering from hellish heat all week.

Right. Problem solved:

Tape Arrested from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Switch over to SciFi for Battlestar Galactica at 10 p.m. using a fresh tape (I will not mix Arrested with other shows! No S2 DVDs are available yet!). Then, I continue taping SciFi for the 11 p.m. showing of Stargate: SG-1 and the midnight showing of Stargate: Atlantis.

I can't believe this. I barely watch television, but in one night I've got five hours worth of television I want to watch. *headdesk*

*sigh* I need some Arrested Development icons.

*goes off in search of them*

Xander's Skeletor

bellatemple persists in turning poor Xander into Fanon Fodder. In light of my meta post on Xander's characterization in Water, I was fascinated when she came up with the following question:

Who's Xander's "Skeletor"? She's trying to get some suggestions for the next part of Fanon Fodder. Here's the exact request:

I've decided that Xander needs a nemesis...In looking for said nemesis, I was reminded of a conversation I had back in G-ville, of the sort that the G-ville crowd often had, in regards to the Skeletor concept. It goes like this: "Who is your skeletor?"

For the sake of the debate, a "skeletor" is someone who has the same powers as you do, but uses them for evil...

What I'm looking for is Xander's skeletor. Someone who generally has a similar "power set" to Xander-- wisecracking, observational skills, and people skills, to name a few examples of his "power"--yet uses them for the forces of evil. I've drawn a blank, so far.

Go and comment in the link provided above with your ideas. It mgiht be fun.
