krickets: (HARPERS. if it kills us;)
Last week I had this weird thing happen where I remembered how awesome Harper's Island turned out to be:

(Also? The vid above is flawless. It manages to show every bit of awesome without giving a single important thing away.)

I kind of want to do a re-watch, and I do have the DVDs.

Day 3 - For each of the fandoms from day two, what were your favorite characters to write? {I'm only doing a few of these!)

Dawson's Creek: I couldn't really tell you. I loved Pacey and Joey but I'm not sure I did a very good job writing them.

The Vampire Diaries: Caroline, Stefan, and Tyler. If it isn't already obvious. I find Tyler the most shippable character on that show so he's actually probably topping this list.

Lost: Jack, Claire, Sawyer... with Alex and Richard bringing up the rear.

Dollhouse: Alpha & Echo (I would totally say Mag and Zone if I'd ever written those characters, LOVE THEM.)

Harper's Island: I don't really have a favorite. Maybe Henry and Shane?

Battlestar Galactica: Kara, Leoben, Sam, Chief... and though I have never written her in fic (a tragedy, yes) I write Ellen Tigh in my brain every day.



Day 4 – Do you have a "muse" character, that speaks to you more than others, or that tries to push their way in, even when the fic isn't about them? Who are they, and why did that character became your muse?
Right now it's Tyler Lockwood from The Vampire Diaries, but I tend to find myself injecting Sawyer or Jack into Lost fics when they're not really in the fic. Claire too, but she's usually the subject of the fics she's in. I can't think of anybody else really.



Day 5 – If you have ever had a character try to push their way into a fic, whether your "muse" or not, what did you do about it?
I probably subtly insinuated they were sleeping with/had slept with one or more of the characters that the fic was about. Is that bad?



Day 6 – When you write, do you prefer writing male or female characters?
I have no preference whatsoever. I feel like I write male and female characters equally and I enjoy them equally.



Day 7 – Have you ever had a fic change your opinion of a character?
I think any time I write a character for the first time this tends to happen. I feel like there are characters that I have written who I only found marginally interesting but after writing them I kind of fall in love with them or fall in love with a pairing. I think Alpha/Echo is a good example of that. Because I didn't have the highest opinion of either of them before writing them, but I ended up loving them. after writing them together. There are other instances where I feel like writing a character hasn't necessarily made me change my opinion on a character, but it's made me appreciate them more. Claire Littleton of Lost and Tyler Lockwood of The Vampire Diaries are good examples of that.

krickets: (LG. oh dyson)
→ So I was over at Oliv3r earlier and I saw this image for that new show Nikita (which I have no real interest in watching, especially now). Observe:

What? Am I the only one who has a problem with this? She's wearing no pants! And this is supposed to be her "kicking-butt" gear? Seriously? I guess maybe if she wasn't obviously about to go on a mission with no pants, it wouldn't be so bad. If she were laying in bed or having a bath or holding a glass of wine instead of a weapon perhaps. But otherwise... put on some pants. I mean, if you can take the time to put on what looks like extremely complicated gloves, you could at least put on some pants. S'all I'm saying!

→ Yesterday I posted an actual picspam (with real live caps and stuff!) for Lost Girl:

right here, bad coloring and all

→ I did not get a chance to watch The Walking Dead pilot last night so hopefully I'll get that shot today. I'm having reservations about it. I haven't really seen anybody talking about it. What did you guys think? (Unspoilery please.)

→ The Lost Ho!Ho!Ho! Sign-ups went up today. I signed up even though every single time I sign up to give a gift it kind of terrifies me ten seconds later. I think it should be fun anyway. Sign-ups last one week.

→ Speaking of ho!ho!ho!s I think I'm going to do that LJ wish list thing again this year. I may post that a little later.

→ If there were any sign of life in the Harper's Island fandom I might run the stocking stuffer exchange again this year but it's looking pretty grim. Hell, I don't even write it anymore. Even though I loved the heck out of that show it seems like it was just one of those things that never caught on in a fandom way. Sadly.

→ In case you missed it, I wrote alpha/echo Dollhouse fic! :)

→ Why are people not reading [livejournal.com profile] slybrunette's ellen/sam (bsg) fic, in our bedroom after the war? Cause it is ten shades of awesome. If you love Ellen Tigh and you love Samuel T. Anders -- and I know a lot of you do -- then go read, enjoy, and be complete.

→ Earlier this week I watched this amazing multi-fandom vid, Needs, by [livejournal.com profile] tearful_eye and it is so unbelievably beautiful. The editing, the motion, the visuals. Just gorgeous with a capital GUH.

→ I wrote some Harper's fic for our fic-a-thon. so what did you do those three days you were dead?, sully/shea. I have been wanting to write them for a while, and I'm not entirely sure I did them justice but there you have it. Also, and to the point, the ficathon ends on the 28th so head on over and get some writing done if you are harper's-inclined.

TONS more here.

Happy Valentine's Day!

In unrelated news, a quick vidrec:
Last night I stumbled across this awesome Harper's Island fan-made promo (great recruiter vid) that's completely non-spoilery. The uninitiated can watch without it giving away any of the show's twists and turns. Plus, it's just downright awesome. Ten times better than any of CBS' promotions.

It's by one of my flisters, [livejournal.com profile] dreamrequiem, and you can leave comments and chocolate hearts here!

Random things from this week:

The Lost Fic Battle over at [livejournal.com profile] lostsquee is on! I'm super excited and there are already some great fics being written. Like this awesome jack/claire by [livejournal.com profile] colourmayfade. Writing goes until the 29th and I am definitely planning on writing!

Didn't watch more than a passing glance at the Golden Globes. I really like Ricky Gervais though so I was partially tempted even though I find awards shows to be pretty pointless and actually have issues with them as a whole. But I kind of wanted Kathryn Bigelow to win for director. (I didn't even know she was nominated until I looked it up last night. That's how invested I was.) The Hurt Locker was great. But she didn't. I know people are pissed about Avatar. I have little or no interest in seeing it beyond the casual, "ohh, Sam Worthington is pretty" distraction. And I can see why people are upset. (They're upset it won for the same reasons I don't really want to see it. Go with your instincts, KC.)

And how about Matt Barr guesting in Friday Night Lights? I just gotta say it kind of made me miss Sully and his cocky attitude. But it was nice to see him.

About Friday Night Lights, general spoilers for s4 )

And about Dollhouse, um, no. )
