Dang, this is fun. :-)


From astrogirl2:

Hiro Nakamura is given a talk show, and his first guests are Greg Sanders, Ba'al, and Vir. How does the show go?

The show is called “Hiro’s Heroes,” and Hiro himself chooses the guests to be interviewed, since he’s the only one who can bend time and dimensions enough to bring them to the show from nearly anywhere in the multiverse. He likes to showcase heroic diversity, which (might) explain the wide gaps between these three particular guests.

The show starts out well, with Hiro enthusiastically quizzing forensic investigator Greg Sanders about the nitty-gritty work of after-the-fact heroics . . . and about Greg’s recent brush with active heroics. Hiro’s sincere admiration puts Greg at ease, and the young CSI even manages to joke about the use of an SUV as a defensive weapon.

The second guest, Vir Cotto, is an aide to the Centauri ambassador on board Babylon 5. He’s nervous and very concerned that anything he says might wind up in the wrong hands and cost him his job, or cost someone else their life. Hiro reassures him that the show is not even being broadcast in his universe, and amazingly, Vir buys this. The next ten minutes of the show are a little overwhelming for Hiro as Vir pours out several years’ worth of frustration and secrets.

Ba’al enters dressed for the occasion, in an elegant suit. Observant viewers notice that Hiro’s happy-go-lucky demeanor subtly changes as they shake hands; those who know something about Hiro’s actual work check to see if he’s wearing his sword. Hiro announces that Ba’al is a reformed villain, a warlord who now runs a perfectly legitimate financial institution. and proceeds to question him about the logistics of changing sides. Everything goes civilly enough, until Ba’al gives himself away by an offhand comment about the lower financial classes. Hiro proceeds to grill him about his business tactics until Ba’al is so annoyed that he forgets to use him human voice and allows his eyes to glow. Hiro grabs Ba’al’s wrist, scrunches up his face, and they both vanish.

This has happened before, so the producers aren’t too worried; and when Hiro reappears a couple of minutes later with a new hairstyle and minus his suit coat, nobody questions it.

Dr. Joel Fleishman is suddenly told that he has only 24 hours to live. How does he spend it?

The very first thing he would do is get on the phone and book the next flight out Anchorage for New York. It probably won’t be leaving all that soon, and between the trip from Cecily to Anchorage and length of the flight, he won’t have much time to spend once he gets to NY. But that won’t stop him from booking the flight.

He packs, then makes one last trip into Rosalyn’s Café, where he finds Maggie, Ed, Shelley and all his friends gathered—to wish him goodbye, he thinks, but they’ve really conspired to keep him there, reasoning that using your last day on earth to fly somewhere is stupid.

After arguments and some (literal) hair-pulling in frustration, Joel finds himself surrounded by the people he knows the best anyway—and though he wishes he could have seen New York one more time, Cecily certainly isn’t the worst place to die.

As long as they promise to honor Joel’s arrangements to ship his body home. Please.

It's up to Shepherd Book and John Munch to save the universe! How doomed are we?

That would really depend. If it’s a huge threat like the Empire (or even the Alliance), then we’re probably quite doomed. Otoh, if simply unearthing a particularly damaging fact and spreading it around, or killing/capturing an individual, would save us…then I think we’re totally saved. Book has a lot of wisdom and experience, and Munch is a fine detective, with a pretty huge capacity for accepting oddities and a deeply hidden passion to be a hero (imho). They’d probably make a good practical team.

From yahtzee63:

What is the main thing Bridgette DuBois, the Ninth Doctor and Blair Sandburg have in common? Would they agree with your assessment?

What do an 8-year-old schoolgirl, a 900-year-old Time Lord, and a 30-year-old academic/police observer have in common? An honest and endless curiosity about the world(s) and the people who inhabit it. Also, at least with Bridgette and the Doctor, there’s a willingness to be rather blunt about asking questions. Blair does that too, on occasion.

Each of them would grin and admit this cheerfully, before asking more questions.

Unrelated to the post, where is the picture in your icon from and who is the person in it?

It's from CSI; the character is DNA tech Greg Sanders, played by Eric Szmanda.

Any particular reason you asked? (Yes, I am occasionally nosy, why do you ask?)

Because I thought I recognized the face and couldn't place him. Neither could reveilles.

They would, they really would!

Never before have I actually wanted to write Northern Exposure fanfic. Heh.

And I'm fighting valiantly against plot bunnies involving the Doctor, little Bridgette (who wouldn't be scared of him at all, and who might see interesting things with her barely-budding psychic abilities), and a mall in Phoenix, AZ.

I can't help but think that if Hiro and Vir were ever both in the same place, that the universe might implode from sheer, concentrated adorableness. :)

Yeah, I think the only reason it might not is if there were dimensional stabelizing devices around. (Also, I would pay $$ to see these two in the same room. Or to read the actual fic.)

So would I, and I hate talk shows. :-) But this one would have Hiro, and thus would be super-awesome.

Reading at your urging:

Dr. Joel Fleishman is suddenly told that he has only 24 hours to live. How does he spend it?

Gah!

Guh!

*sputters with speechlessness*

*composes self*

Never before have I actually wanted to write Northern Exposure fanfic. Heh.

See, I can actually see this as being an ep (NX *is* fic, you know).

And yes, the scenario you paint would so work.

But . . . it can't be for real, because *Guh!*

*looks shifty-eyed at Izzy while protectively embracing Dr. Joel.*

Wow. I'm getting all teary-eyed just thinking about it.

Hey, the question itself is not my fault. :-) Blame jd3000. Absolute serendipity that he chose the number belonging to Dr. Joel.

I know! It would make a perfect never-existed episode. Actually, as long as the diagnosis/whatever turned out to be mistaken/faulty, it wouldn't even have to truely be a death story. :-)
