a while back on another thread, popogeejo
made a comment about "best drinking buddies" and i decided that would be interesting and hard to think about... it really depends on the character and his/her personality
so, thinking of "best drinking buddy," i came up with a list of guys and girls who would be ideal to hang out with when ur in the mood for a swig, or in need of a friend, or just looking to get wasted and have a good time...
(there's 1-2 guys i had to exempt from the list since i'm limited to 10 on a poll, so i chose the 10 "finalists" as best i could based on who, in their own way, would actually go to a bar and interact with the average person)
if i was in need of a friend, i thought i'd go for Roy, Hughes, Al
if i'm wanted advice or just to chat about the day's events i might go to Falman or Armstrong
if i was just looking for a good time, to get wasted and have fun, maybe i'd go for Ed, Havoc, Breda, Greed, Kimblee
but then i realised that if u were drunk...
- Greed would take advantage of the fact that ur too drunk to think straight and steal ur money and stuff
- Havoc would also, but he'd probably try to steal ur girl and then go out on a depressing/enjoyable smoke (which one depends on if he scored with ur girl)
- Roy or Hughes would be alright with it and be a good friend to wait until ur sober or help u to get home or w/e (so would Armstrong, but he'd probably pick u up and flaunt about how strong he is - then the next day when u wake up he'd gloat about how great he was to be nice and strong and carry u home)...
- Falman would be too tired to notice; Ed would get too drunk and go around the bar screaming about shortness and laughing;
- Al would be kind of childish; Breda would just leave; Kimblee might decide to try to use u as a bomb for fun
--after all that my vote goes to Hughes since he seems more the "friend when u need one" type as he helped his best friend Roy out countless times, and maybe many more that we don't know about - to me he's an overall good guy and good friend
--and as an added bonus to this poll - there's the 'best drinking buddy' for girls, yay
girls also need a friend or someone to talk to over a couple drinks, just as much as guys do
so ladies, u too choose who u'd want to be a friend in ur time of need, or who u'd like to hang out with to get wasted and have a good time... w/e the choice, i selected a list of girls/women who i thougt might be a good choice for fun or advice or a basic friend
(personally if i were to drink with a girl on that list, i wouldn't know who to choose; Riza most likely, but i like Martel (she's bad-[All hail lord Xenu]
), Maria Ross or Mrs. Hughes would be helpful as a good friend, and Izumi is down-right chill/cool
-- so my choice would be a close one between Riza and Maria)
To the guys and girls out there... enjoy and happy responsible
drinking edit in 2009
: this was made when there was only one anime show and very little was known of the different manga characters like Lin and Ran-Fan, they were fairly new... so yes i can't change the name "Dante" or others on the poll, but it can still be an interesting poll either way
