pastself: (SHIPS TAKE OVER LIFE)
I have just come back from a month absence from the internet. Needless to say I am behind. So discovering three new shows - The Mentalist and True Blood, both of which will air in September - and getting into The Cleaner... let's just say it was like a return to my roots.

To SPN fans out there, Alona Tal is in the second episode of The Cleaner... WOW. She was amazing. I never really liked her as Jo - but maybe that was just the character... either way, she was excellent alongside Benjamin Bratt. Highly recommend watching at least that one episode.

Also, for the first time in years I am working on a fic. It's actually kinda monstrous and has developed into a medium size trilogy in my head.... the ship? Brian Kinney/Robert Chase. Seriously. Of course, leading on to House/Chase. The three weeks I spent without fandom meant I had to develop my own, and for some reason this is what my brain came up with. I ahve just started writing it long hand and I have a feeling it is going to be rather porny. Which means... research!

Also, I have officially become what I used to loathe - an Obamamaniac. I still wish Hillary could have gotten the nomination, and at first I was only behind him because the thought of McCain was so much worse... but then the New Yorker cover came out, and I got so angry at people that couldn't see the self-mocking that the New Yorker was trying to portray. It just made me really pissed at people who didn't like him. And then I found out that the Human Society endorsed him, and that was it. Total love. He will be a wonderful President. I have no doubt about it.

The thing I love about the HP fandom is the quantity of quality there is out there.  I might not read an H/D fic for months, but when I want to I can spend hours at a time reading a novel length fic.  I kinda miss being as active in this fandom as I used to be, but at the same time, I do not miss the miserable waits for new chapters.  Then again, I suffer in exactly the same way in all my other fandoms... but nevermind.

The thing is, I just can't keep up.  I had little computer time this summer, which dampened my SPN obsession.  And since I have not seen the new eps, I have been sticking solely to the WIPs I had followed before S3.  Just in case.  It's crazy, but at least I can venture onto my flist with the help of filters.  And then there is Heroes, which I do not profess to be an expert in or a major fangirl of.  But at the same time, I love my Nathan/Peter fics.  And how can I not mention QAF?  The fandom I used to exist off of for almost a year... I am completely in the dark.  I miss Brian and Justin in the way you miss that ex that left you at the alter.  But I never know how to get back into the swing of the QAF fandom.

And then there are the deadish fandoms out there.   My Spike/Angel love is still going strong, but the fandom lacks the structure that HP and SPN have.  ie. There is no "here are all the super long, amazingly complex fics" sort of thing.  So either I read through crap or I just give up.  What about Firefly?  My Mal/River love is over the moon, but the fandom in kinda tiny.  Not to mention the fact that there aren't too many browncoats out there who share my particular love.  (If you feel the overwhelming urge to convert, check out [profile] tesla321 's Knot for our Heart - which I love like woah.)

There is also my crazy obsession with the West Wing. How can such an amazing show have such a tiny fandom?  If I could get everyone in the SPN fandom to just write three words of Sam/Josh fic, the amount out there would triple overnight.  And speaking about tin fandom, who else is wondering where all the Grey's fans are?  Seriously.  And what about Lost?  Why am I not overwhelmed with hot Jacket fics everytime I check my flist?  I mean, apart from the fact it's het.  Which.... admittedly, might have a lot to do with it.

Okay, this started out as a happy post and ended up a not-so-happy post.  Give me a fandom with too many fics and I'm pissed, too few and I'm pissed.  I guess I can't be pleased.

Oh yeah, I hope everyone out there is watching Blood Ties.  That awesome Canadian Vampire Detective show?  With the amazingly stunning Henry Fitzroy?  Yeah, that one.

love,
the accidental multifandom whore

1) OMG Podcast! Jonny McGovern is 12 kinds of awesome, and if you people aren't listening to his GayPimp Podcasts - then do so now.

2) I have been rewatching QAF and am still crazy in love. In case, by some hideous chance, you missed Pulse Point by [personal profile] xie_xie_xie - it is like reading a gay!Greys Anatomy.  Only with characters I actually like.  *pimps*

3) I cracked and got an insanejournal and a journalfen.  Just in case, and all that.

4) Jared has a STARDOLL.  ...  Yeah, I saw these on The 9 about six months ago and had since completely forgotten about them.  But now?  Yeah, staring at Jared in his boxers has purpose.

5) *gigglesnort* More of ToppyBastard!Jared/Jensen Premiere pics, posted by [personal profile] stir_of_echoes.

6) Start pre-ordering your Serenity DVD, people.  I know the chances of another movie are kinda microscopic - but you never know!

7) We didn't start the fandom.  *sighs*  Relive the greatest HP fandom moments of all time.  Seriously, this is possibly the greatest ever made.

8) I watched the entire season of Dirt, and half of Entourage season 4.  My Hollywood love is like woah.

So, I think I've managed to cover every fandom in this short post.  *hugs the world*  And no, this is not another high!post.
