▪ Watched first episode of Heading Out, caught up with OuAT, Glee made Quinntana happen and I laughed like nobody's business. (Although, can we appreciate that the first and only healthy sexual experience Quinn Fabray has had in her life was with another girl? Just sayin'~)

Game of Thrones shizzle: 

This sums up Daenerys Targaryen pretty well, imo. :P

▪ As much as I love Emilia Clarke (and her face... and her eyebrows), this cracked me up, because -- well, people want Joffrey to be Lemongrab, but Daenerys basically filled that role in season 2: Adventure Time meets Game of Thrones.

▪ If you haven't watched this short film before, you definitely should! It's too cute. It's only 17 mins~

Study Debunks Notion that Men and Women Are Psychologically Distinct -- and the sky is blue, I'm tempted to add....

Two mom family drama The Fosters gets picked up -- am cautiously optimistic? Like, I'm not necessarily the biggest fan of the Lesbian Mum-theme, but that doesn't mean it can't be awesome! Let's see!

Doctor Who: Sue Perkins subject of female Doctor campaign -- *raises hand* I like this.

▪ I'm sure there is some clever remark or observation to be made here, but I think I'll just leave this as it is:

▪ Meme shamelessly nicked from Tumblr:

Name a character and I'll rate them as being:

not my type | alright | cute | adorable | hot | sexy | LORD MERCY

Ugh. Homework. Everywhere. 

I know I haven't been all that active around here recently, but... *points above* - that's the reason. :P

Hope everyone is doing well~


• Link: Romancing the Sro. Anyone know of any 'sromances' other than the ones mentioned? 

• Link: This doesn't remind anyone of anything else, does it? ;D Emma Swan surely couldn't be the prince(ss) who saves the witch from her miserable existence? (Only question in this context: who is Akio? Is Regina her own Anthy *as well* as Akio?)

• Link: Awesome fanart of fem!Sherlock and fem!Watson. You bet your ass I would watch the show if these two were the duo.

Le meme time~

So, I need my flist's help to reach a final conclusion when it comes to this most important matter of all matters in the whole wide world! 

I'll give you a hint: it involves a magazine and a pretty troll...  )


• Link: Basically, this is too good not to share...

• Link: Am I the only one who thinks it looks like Olivia is an Italian Mafioso here or something? "We'll make him an offer he can't refuse-ah." Lol! Bottom line: I love Anna's face forever and ever, amen! 

•  I'm not sure how comfortable I feel when some of these someecards fit me to a T as they do... )

Glee. 2x19: Rumours. 

“So you two are in love? Soul mates, so to speak?”
“Yeah. I’d say that was accurate.”

OTP is end fucking game, people. Ryan Murphy & Co better not backpedal. Or else... *shakes fist* 

All I seem to do lately is spam my LJ with Brittana/Santana gifs, but I can't really bring myself to feel sorry about it. :P

And I think some other stuff also happened in this episode...  )


Meme snagged from [livejournal.com profile] elle_white. I was given the letter S.

1. Comment with "the odds are ever in you favor"
2. I will give a letter
3. Post the names of five fictional characters and your thoughts on each.

Five fictional characters under the cut!  )

Oh hai, interwebz! Whaz up?

I've just resurfaced from finishing a much too long assignment, but it's over and done with now and I'm free as a bird and ready to play! :D I hope everybody had a nice Christmas. As for New Year's resolutions, *I* for one am going to finish some goddamn *fic* this year, that's for sure! I'm determined! Lo and behold, this is my Determined Face: >:❘


In other news:

[livejournal.com profile] jossverse_bb is coming up! If you're one of those persons who can bang out 10,000 words, and you're still, y'know, interested in BtVS, then go check it out. Sign ups from now till March 1st. 


[livejournal.com profile] halfamoon  is coming up too! February 1 through Valentine's Day. In case you haven't heard of it, it's two weeks of celebrating women being awesomely awesome with fics, vids, and what have you, so come bring your girl-loving ways and squee about your woman/women of choice! 

The 2011 New Year's Resolution Challenge is open!  The NYR Challenge lets anyone write and upload a story of ANY length, inspired by any of the Yuletide 2010 prompts, including those of our non-participant pinch hitters. Just make sure to add the recipient name of the Yuletider whose prompt you use. And the deadline is until the next sign up for Yuletide, which is in November this year, so -- that's a lot of time (she said and believed it in her heart of hearts...). I have my eyes set on one or two prompts, so... I guess we'll see what happens. :P

So, in a desperate attempt to get myself into the ~groove~ of this writing business, I'm offering porn in the form of drabbles. Everybody wants smut, right? Everything goes, basically. I'm open to all prompts, unconventional or not:

Give me a pairing and a prompt, and I will write you no less than 100 words (or more) of dirty dirty porn. Or, you know, as dirty as I can make it, because this is me we're talking about, and I can't really write anything super filthy.

Fandoms up for grabs: Glee, True Blood, Revolutionary Girl Utena, Legend of the Seeker, Mai-HiME/Otome, Skins (gen 2), Noir, Firefly, BtVS, Merlin. I may have forgot some...

So, Halloween. Providing links to things that go well with this particular holiday is the least I can do:


The entire Garlands (1982) album from Cocteau Twins is somewhat perfectly *shaped* for the Halloween season, if you ask me. It's a fantastic album, in any case. Make sure to check out the track "Garlands" from the album with selfsame title.


Just a few of my personal favourites and films I'd recommend to people who aren't horror buffs by any stretch of the word:

- Jacob's Ladder (1990)
- Martyrs (2008)
- Audition (1999)
- Nosferatu (1922)
- Carnival of Souls (1962)
- Funny Games (1997)

Any films I should be reprimanded for not having mentioned above? ;) 

Fuan no Tane is a Japanese horror manga by the great Nakayama Masaaki. Some of the stories are just plain weiiird while others are deliciously eerie. Over at Dreamwidth, they've scanned some pages from the ghoulishness:

#1. Scans Daily, Fuan no Tane

#2. Scans Daily, Fuan no Tane

Fic rec:

BtVS - Here Comes A Candle

A most splendid little ghost story. Atmospheric and incredibly well-executed (no pun intended). I don't want to give anything away - I wouldn't want to ruin it if you haven't already read this great fic.

And on this note, I'll leave you with a link to the creepiest ice cream truck, ever!  

Happy Halloween, everyone! :D

What we've learned from the first season of Fringe:

- Olivia looks very pretty with bruises. Also, she swaggers like whoa!
- Olivia likes to strip down to her underwear and float around in a tank with electrodes attached to her head.
- Olivia drinks whiskey like a pro. Respect. 
- Olivia isn't that talented in the kitchen. She's too busy rescuing the world, y'all, to worry about culinary experiences.
- Olivia has inappropriate chemistry with her sister. And she acts like a genuine fierce momma lion around her niece. 
- Olivia has been nicknamed Han (i.e. Han Solo) because she was *that* much of a lone wolf at one point in her life and most certainly still is.
- Olivia kicks ass and still has time to be protective when it comes to sickly pale children. And redhead twins. 
- **SPOILER**: spoiler for 1x17 )

So, just from this - you should totally be watching Fringe. Really. ;)


From [info]fannish5:

From [livejournal.com profile] fannish5:

Name five fictional bars you would like to visit.

- Caritas (Angel).
Singing demons! Lorne! I think I would pick something Diana Ross to sing, just for the heck of it. 

- Merlotte's (True Blood).
I'd drop in around season 3, seeing as *Jessica* would be working there. ::dreamy sigh::

- Rorschach (Mai-HiME).
I'd like for a pretty, leather-clad, blue-haired girl to walk in the door right about now, khtnx.

- Korova Milk Bar (A Clockwork Orange)
Uhm. There would be drugs in the milk? Plus, the *furniture*... 

- Willy's Bar (BtVS).
More demons! Willy getting manhandled by the Scoobies! I'd be a lot of fun to just observe.

Creepy vampire family with Angel as the douche bag patriarch? LOL. I find it amusing.

I've been rewatching season 2 of Buffy this week. This show still owns my heart. 

I spend the better half of my time cracking up over Angel because I still have trouble not... doing that.

Ted: How come I don't remember the scene of Miss Calendar shooting Giles in the back with a crossbow? That's both really painful for my favourite Watcher I'm sure, but also very funny in context! So, in selfsame ep Buffy gets smacked around a bit by Ted, but doesn't bruise one bit. In the next episode, Bad Eggs, Cordelia introduces her face to a metal pipe and she gets this huge bruise on her forehead? There was nothing indicating that those being controlled by the bezoar spawn were given superhuman strength or anything. 

Surprise: Hey there, I see you foreshadowing Buffy's loss of virginity with that dinner plate, Joyce. You be unsubtle thar, show. And Angel is more than likely lying to Buffy regarding Drusilla being dead in the scene where she shows up at his place - not buying for one second that he *wouldn't* sense if Dru 'died' died. 

Phases: "I just don't trust Oz with her. I mean, he's a senior. He's attractive. Ok, maybe not to me, but..." You are never going to make me believe in a hundred years that Xander is *all* those 100% of straight. Never, never, never. 

I Only Have Eyes For You: First time the Mayor is mentioned (with underlying dun-dun-dun music). Also, there are a lot of snakes in this ep. Coincidence?

Go Fish: No comments. Only this song.

The theme of season 2 is (the great big romance of Bangel!!1!!1) the Scoobies' confrontation with the shadow self of a boyfriend/girlfriend: Oz/the wolf, Jenny/Janna, Angel/Angelus, Giles/Ripper and even in Willow's case with Xander who gets split into dorky best friend who is also a potential romantic interest/fiend who turns his back on her in favour of canoodling with their sworn enemy since first grade.

There can also be drawn obvious parallels between Kendra, Ampata, Jenny Calendar and Buffy in regards to sacrificing themselves - putting the better of their clan/people/fellow classmates before their own lives, no matter how much they may or may not wish to have that certain burden on them is also something the season underlines. 

Oh, and one last important thing: wheelchairs -- Willow, Buffy, and Spike all end up in them. I doubt any of the other seasons can boast with that accomplishment.

Attention! There's been committed absolutely fabulous fanvids - here's the link to the Festivids Masterlist where all the greatness can be found!

I'm personally reccing these three fandom vids, because my initial reactions after watching them were, in order: 1) Holy shit! That was shiny! and 2) I am definitely going to check the movie and Profit out! The LoTS vid had me enthralled - I suspect Kahlan's pretty face and pretty hair played a factor in it, too. ;) 

- Kamikaze Girls (movie)
- Legend of the Seeker
- Profit

And although it doesn't have anything to do with this, *this* vid was also too good not to rec as well:

- 7 Years Of Buffy Under 4 Minutes

What have I been busy with the last two weeks?

Watching all available episodes of True Blood, is what.

Thoughts and implicit spoilers  )

And a fandom meme to go along with the post, seeing as I felt like it: 

Pick three fandoms. Answer the following questions for each:

Fandoms: True Blood - Buffy - Utena )   

And on to something completely different: This. Song. Is. Eating. My. BRAAIN! like some devilish malicious earworm of pure evil! I just want to take this song by the scruff and throw it out of my *head*!! I hope to inflict the pain on someone else, because... that's how I roll.
