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.
I had a dream last night in which House was running all over the hospital trying to work out why Chase had so much candy. And then he stumbled upon Chase's "super secret candy closet" and it turned out he had so much candy because he was reading Sam/Dean smut all night and wanted to stay up. He then had a breakdown, House pushed Cameron to the side and comforted him. They proceeded to live sarcastically ever after whilst gorging themselves on twizzlers.


I think Chase even had one of those candy bracelets - and it spelled out WINCEST.


I've gone completely insane. It's official.

Okay, I spent the entire Supernatural season er, not watching it.  Because I knew I would get hooked and that I would obsess exactly the way I did last year.  But wow.  Catching up?  Beyond amazing.  And 3x11?  I have never loved Sam so much.  Ever.  Except when he lost his shoe.

In a way I'm glad I missed waiting for the eps - otherwise I would have started reading some of the critique - which always ends up affecting me!  And since I didn't, I loved every second.  It's like when someone points out the tiny flaw your dream guy has and then you end up breaking up with him.  Plain out evil.


And how awesome has Lost season 4 been?  Seriously.  Crazy Crazy awesome.  Even though there haven't been any Juliet episodes yet I am still in love.  Although not as in love as I am with Spn.  But then, how could I be?  Also, I have watch the first two seasons of House.... and yeah.  WOW.  I have long been in love with Hugh Laurie, so this was just the cherry on my cupcake of love.

Also, how have I not mentioned my crazy excitement over the strike being over?  While I totally supported them (pencils down and all that jazz) I am so glad they are back at their jobs.  Oddly enough it feels like Greys is the only show that was affected.  Guess its because I was too in love with the boys to actually, ya know, watch the show.  Which is bizarre... I know.

England v. France this weekend.  So be prepared for a sob story.

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.

Okay, at the end of Season two I was kinda in shock. Sure, the next season meant the plot was going to be AllAboutDeanAngstAllTheTime - but there was also the fact that Dean might end up... er... dead. So, I made a fanmix. And then I made one about how Sammy would save him. And then I felt better.

The styles for the two mixes are very different, but they go together. For the Death!Dean mix, there is a lot of blues and lots of "the devil is after me" sweetness. Very gritty, dirty and devilish stuff. On the hand, Saviour!Sammy is all about jazz. Smooth, melodic and a touch of Godlyness thrown in.

Please note, I haven't seen any of Season 3 yet! Do not spoil me!!!

I am stupidly proud of these EPs, and I really hope you enjoy them!

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.

 I am still not where I wanted to be in my studies, but I am pretty fucking close. My first exam is in 4 days. That's when I'll be tearing my head off.

Okay okay okay. Before I get going, y'all should know that I was super nervous before watching these episodes. I even waited a whole day after my allowed "deadline" to download them because all I could think of was what if it's not as good as I remember? Stupid I know, this is the show that brought us Nightshifter, The Benders and fucking Skin - how could the next episodes not be great? Right? But you've got to understand - it's been 3 bloody weeks since I've seen the boys and, yeah, maybe I was wondering if they still liked me.

To those of you out there who have gone underground, yeah, major spoilers ahead people.

Okay, am off to watch 2x21 - which is so very crazy amazing.

Should I save the next one for tomorrow?


I probably won't get any sleep anyways.  How the hell did you people wait a whole week for this?

*is dead*

People, rec me anything and everything that I have missed.  Need.  More. Guh.

ETA:  Was almost going to use a spoiler icon just as payback - apparently I'm just not enough of a bitch.  *grumbles*
pastself: (SPN - Insert NC-17 Wincest)
I loathe spoiler icons, seriously think it's completely and utterly disrespectful to the moles out there who haven't been able to seeing an ep yet.  Give it at least a week, people.  And yes, I was under this impression even before I was hiding from Supernatural spoilers - 2x20 icons - even though I might look away - I do understand.  But I've barely been online the past few days and still know a couple of scenes from 2x21... it's just not fair. 

On the other hand, I am having a SPN marathon of 3 unwatched eps on Friday.  While it has been absolute hell, I think this was possibly the greatest idea I've ever had.  So er... yeah, take that icons of DOOM.

Okay, ignore this. It makes no sense and consists mostly of OMG. So yeah, ignore.

Really interesting article about the myth of virginity in the Washington Post. Somewhat bizarre to read as the idea of a first time not really having any real biological connotations is just odd. Also, the comments on the "Breakdown" of the Bush administration are just bizarre. One would think that the US Justice Department would have more than one copier - especially when the documents in question have been requested by the House and Senate. One would think.

Supernatural ending up EW's Must-Watch makes me very happy. Although I haven't actually read the stub, as my brain might collapse from minor, non-spoiling spoilers. I'm just weird that way.

Fics I've been reading like woah:

Hush by [ profile] nymeria - a AU SPN where John dies when Dean is 18. Sam/Dean with an amazing Jess!factor.

On Midsummer Nights I Dream of Winchesters by [ profile] deirdre_c - Shakespeare!Wincest that reminds me of the D/Hr fic from way back when The Play's the Thing by [ profile] shakespearechic - only with, you know, incest and porn and guns and metal and... okay, maybe not so much. Still, this fic? Hot. Never look at Shakespeare the same. Ever. Again.

The latest part of Hearts Desire by [ profile] wolfling and [ profile] zortified. I had just finished reading parts 1-6, when part 7 came out. My shout for joy could be heard in Morocco. For real.
