Psst! You guys!
[livejournal.com profile] stainofmylove is holding a comment fic meme free for all thingie! (vague enough for you?)
PLAY!
krickets: (KILLING. we're back here again.)
[livejournal.com profile] ozmissage gave me this meme after lengthy discussions about "what our shipping and character preference say about us." This one's just about characters, maybe I'll alter it and do a "pairings" one later.

List fifteen (or however many) of your favorite characters from different fandoms and ask people to spot patterns in your choices, if they're so inclined.

Not a comprehensive list, more of a sampling.
Duke Crocker, Haven
Gale Hawthorne, The Hunger Games (books)
Stephen Holder, The Killing
Chon McAlister, Savages & Kings of Cool (books)
Sawyer Ford, Lost (pre-season 5, sorry guys)
Kenzi, Lost Girl (picking only one from this fandom was hard... because Tamsin!)
Pacey Witter, Dawson's Creek
Felix, Orphan Black
Topher Brink, Dollhouse
Hanna Marin, Pretty Little Liars
Fiona Gallagher, Shameless US (also a hard choice! because Karen! And Lip! But mostly Karen.)
Clayton "Jonesy" Jones, Carnivale
Brad Colbert, Generation Kill
Buffy Summers, Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Veronica Mars, Veronica Mars
Kara Thrace, Battlestar Galactica
Katherine Pierce, The Vampire Diaries
Cristina Yang, Grey's Anatomy
Brian Kinney, Queer as Folk US
Malcolm Reynolds, Firefly

For the record, there were certain fandoms *cough*FridayNightLights*cough* that I just couldn't pick one favorite character. It was just too cruel.

Explain to me, oh ye goddesses of fandom!

Some of the dearest people to me use words that I just don't understand.

I feel like everyone's using the expression "whelmed" these days. But I just don't know how to take it. I mean, I am a complete nerd, and of course I looked it up in the thesaurus. It lists "overwhelm" as a synonym for "whelm." And it lists "underwhelm" as an antonym. This was my suspicion all along, based on my own personal knowledge of the English language, but I don't know how to tell when someone in fandom is using it for "overwhelm" or if they're using it ironically for "underwhelm." Sometimes by the context, I feel like it's one way. Sometimes I feel like it's the other way. And sometimes I just can't tell at all.

I mean maybe it always means "underwhelmed" in the same way that "the worst" seems to almost always mean "the best."

I am so confused! We live in a backward world, my friends. And we also clearly need to get a fandom-specific dictionary. Can someone do that for me? Thanks.

I'm having fun this week with the awesome five acts meme. I was just about to move on with other projects when this started but I figured I should take part in this little fandom world we live in for a moment. It's still going on until the 26th and you can sign up any time, and it is so fun. I got some great stuff written for me at my post. I plan on writing more, so keep your eyes peeled.

Here's what I've written so far:
every road takes us farther from home; lost, jack/claire; r; for [livejournal.com profile] lenina20
books and covers; lost, jack/shannon; pg13; for [livejournal.com profile] gemjam
come on, all ye reborn; dollhouse, alpha/echo; r; for [livejournal.com profile] toestastegood
the hardest button to button; firefly, mal/simon; r; for [livejournal.com profile] haldoor
it will go on; lost, richard/jacob; r; for [livejournal.com profile] aurilly
in your wake; grey's, cristina/burke; pg13; for [livejournal.com profile] primarycolors92
to keep you warm; firefly, river/jayne; pg13; for [livejournal.com profile] wandersfound

krickets: (LIFE. b. you're not the boy)
→ So, Ugly Betty. We have bid adieu. And she will go right up there with Buffy, Veronica, Starbuck, & others as one of the great female characters and role models of my tv-watching career. I wish I could really sum up why this show was so remarkable and important, despite its goofiness, and how there really is nothing else like it on TV right now. Which is kinda sad, really. But I don't know how to do it. I don't even have an icon to prove my adoration. So for now I will just say goodbye. Goodbye Betty! Goodbye Suarez family! Goodbye Marc & Amanda! Goodbye Wilhelmina and your craziness! Goodbye Meads! (Especially Claire!) If I could, I would kiss them all.

→ Life Unexpected also ended. Renewal is still up in the air. Season one. Ah, it was crazy! It was beautiful! I won't give away anything when I say that this show really came out of nowhere and rocketed to the top of my "must-watch" list every week. It was just delightful and I love the characters and their building relationships and the well-done focus on minor characters and the setting and the dialogue and the fun and the melodrama. There is no reason not to be watching this show, flist. I just hope it gets a second season cause I'm dying to see these characters continue to live. They're too adorable not to.

→ Justified. Um, I think I'm two eps behind. Whoops!

→ Parenthood. First episode I was not sold. Liked the second ep a ton better, and now I can officially say that I really like this show. I've got to say that I think the cast is really great, including the younger members. I still don't particularly like Peter Krause's character, but I guess with a character list that long there's bound to be someone. I love the opening credits and just think they're doing a great job all around.

→ I tried the first two eps of Miami Medical and was surprisingly charmed by them. Not planning on attending regular service just yet, it's too soon to tell, but I can think of worse things to watch. [Much worse.]

[livejournal.com profile] gigglemonster made this awesome themed wallpaper and accompanying fanmix for Jack/Sawyer/Claire called We Rob Banks. Awesome. Gorgeous. And sexy. I am hoping to write those three again very very soon and this just made me remember [not that I'd forgotten] why I love them so much. (That and re-watching all of her Jawyercita, Jack/Claire and Jack/Sawyer vids multiple times.) I'm feeling very optimistic.

[livejournal.com profile] slybrunette literally just informed me that I won this month's best het fic [livejournal.com profile] lost_fic_award for And Life is Wine! I am beyond shocked. I never expect to win anything, let alone an LFA! So thank you to anyone who voted for my fic.

→ The list of shows I'm behind on gets longer every day. No wonder. I keep trying new shows and actually really enjoying them. Perhaps this is due to my desperate desire to find some new shows I like that don't get fucking canceled thank-you-very-much!

→ Already linked about this over at the Impromptu-thon as someone called it, but [livejournal.com profile] daybreak777 is hosting an Itty-Bitty Thon this weekend. They're doing 10 second vids and other fun things! You guys should check it out.

→ I'm sure everybody and their monkey's uncle has already seen this: Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day. I think I speak for everyone when I say, Holy Crap!

→ Also, [livejournal.com profile] alliecat8 wrote this great Lost fic called Dharmasankat that kind of answers the question, what if the "reset" sends them all back to that day in Sydney and they have to make the choice of whether or not to get on that plane. Really interesting concept.
