He's not dead
Day Seven: Favourite Angel (other than Cas)

My top pick would have to be Lucifer - assuming he can be counted. If not, then I did enjoy hating Zachariah and his pettiness. Next in line would be Naomi. I liked her ambiguousness (and the actress seems rather lovely).

This seems to have been overshadowed by all the promo Tuesday talk lol.

Anyways on topic other than Castiel this is quite a tough one for me :s

I would say my favourites would probably be Lucifer because I enjoyed the menace he oozed and he made for an interesting character. I also thought Balthazar and Anna were quite interesting.

I can't say I like Naomi though I loathe the retconning they did to both the angel mythology in general and Castiel's backstory this season and I can't separate my dislike of that from Naomi who I associate strongly with it.

Oh yeah, the Tuesday talk took off...;)

Yeah, I have to say I wasn't thinking of it in terms of the actual story telling I suppose - more just who I liked to watch on the screen - though I did like that we didn't know what her agenda was. And in the end I felt she was neither good or bad - just...messed up. Which, I think was the whole point of giving us her - to show us how the angels have lost their way. (I think?)

I admit to losing track of the angel story lines generally. To this day I don't really know how the angel myth arc works.

And hun - want to give you the heads up on my next post. We've only just met and I have loved getting to know you - but I'm not a huge fan of the angel story line, nor , er...Cas. I will be giving my reasons in the next post - but just so you know. I respect everyone's feelings on the characters and I love that we all feel differently about them. :)) I did mention I have a messy relationship with Cas - I'm going to attempt to explain why. ;)

But Castiel!Cas.... *pouts and waves away the "other than Cas"* lol

Lucifer and Zachariah are certainly great choices though. Naomi is a tricky one for me despite her great performance because to me she is so much a Stargate character. I watched that show so much. Made it hard for me to really see her as Naomi only.

I think they make the assumption that Cas is everyone's favourite angel...;)) I also think they excluded Cas because there was an opportunity in one of the earlier questions to list him as a fav character (other than Sam or Dean). Maybe..? I'm not sure where the questions came from actually...

And that's a good point about Naomi. I never did watch Stargate so I didn't have that connection - I imagine it would make quite a difference. And I think I've been swayed by a recent con interview I watched - she seems so lovely.

And...ack! *runs away*....avoid my next post sweetie! (though I think you know how I feel about Cas anyway...)

ROFL we're of one mind, again! I like Lucifer and Zachariah best, for different reasons. Lucifer, because I find him very creepy - the disturbing 'relationship' he has with Sam is a non-stop source of fascination and horror for me. Zachariah, because I find him endlessly amusing - his constant (fruitless) attempts to teach Dean a lesson and his general pettiness are just very entertaining to watch. *g*
