So....

What does my flist feel about the whole 'vic mignogna once again getting his claws into a canonically gay character'?

For anyone who hasn't heard, the most anti-yaoi of the anti-yaoi voice actors, Vic Mignogna, has gotten cast as Greece in the Hetalia dub. For anyone who also doesn't know, Vic tried to tell millions of fangirls that he was the authority on Fai and not CLAMP (and thus insisting that CLAMP would never draw their characters in compromising positions with members of the same sex *cough*)

You know what I think he does? I think he goes in, tries for the gayest character in a series AND THEN HE PLAYS THEM AS STRAIGHT.

Doesn't change my opinion of the characters though. Tamaki was a stretch yes (I will give him Tamaki who could potentially be straight for Haruhi even though I'm much more a fan of his relationship with Kyouya) but Fai was being done in the ass by Kurogane, and I'm pretty sure that's not just a fangirl's opinion, also... Greece and Japan, did it, done it and got a postcard of it to send to relatives back home.

Oh, he absolutely has a huge ego and inflated sense of self-worth. But, unfortunately, ADV plays in to that because they are constantly casting him due to his "celebrity" status.

I think the funniest and most humbling moment I've ever witnessed him be part of was a con a couple of years ago. He was still all $TWY#%YH# from being cast as Ed from FMA and he was fucking impossible to talk to.

Enter Claudia Christensen, Ivanova from Babylon 5, and her amazing ability to drag a train of horny fanboys behind her.

I first met the charming young lady at a tiny tiny ass comic con at 1 in the morning with a bottle of vodka in my hand. She was about as plastered as I was and would rub nerd's dice on her ample ample cleavage for luck. This nearly resulted in an explosion.

She asked for some vodka and I told her she was this man's last best hope for ending his dry spell. To only slightly kiss and tell, it worked. Amazingly.

So, fast forward back to this other convention. We're both feeling no pain and planning mischief when the fan-boy brigade starts up with it and we're trying to ditch them.

We run, physically, in to Vic "Steel" Magnolias.

He looks at me and says "Fuck you computer guy."

Claudia says something like "If you would get out of the way, I'd get to doing that a lot faster." (not exactly what she said, but the drunk.. I was it)

Vic Mastersoftheuniverse eyeballs us like an old maid eyeballs sin. He did the full slow up and down, then the mental math, and says "Bitch, do you even know who I am?"

Claudia says "BITCH! DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHO *I* AM?" (and p.s. the Russian Winter in her voice made my balls creep back in to the middle of my chest cavity)

Then she turns her head back to the 10 or so fanboys who are just aching for a chance to do her bidding and says "Boys, what's the first rule?"

As a chorus "YOU DON'T MESS WITH IVANOVA."

That totally got me hard again.

Oh wow, you know how awesome it is that you stole Vic's game. Just yeah. (I love how he has to declare who he is, as if anyone but puberscent 15 year olds would care.)
