Dude, that rhymes! hah.

Name fifteen favorite fannish pairings (het/slash/canon/fanon), and ask people if they notice any common traits/tendencies in the pairings you choose. Try to pick different fandoms.

I was tempted to put Duncan/Methos fifteen times. lol.

1. Duncan/Methos (Highlander)
2. Dorothy/Ozma (Oz books)
3. Jack/Tony (24)
4. Vinnie Terranova/Roger Lococco (Wiseguy)
5. Kirk/Spock (Star Trek... oh heck, either incarnation)
6. Tom Paris/Chakotay (ST: Voy)
7. The Doctor/Rose Tyler (SUCK IT, LOSERS) (Doctor Who)
8. Elizabeth Bennet/Fitzwilliam Darcy (Pride & Prejudice)
9. Mary/Parks (Gosford Park)
10. Danny Ocean/Rusty Ryan (Ocean's 11)
11. Sirius/Remus (Harry Potter)
12. Jack Sparrow/Elizabeth Swann/Will Turner (what?) (Pirates of the Caribbean)
13. Catherine/Henry (Northanger Abbey)
14. Sydney/Vaughn (Alias)
15. Harry/Gay Perry (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang)

I notice no tendencies other than I'm possibly cracked in the head.

My iPod loves me, by evidence of it randomly playing Flight of the Conchords songs for me during my (late) morning walk. Those boys! They make me smile. :D :D


The manager, Bevin, starts to abuse me. Hey man, I just want some Muesli.

~~~

In other news, the Olympics have started and I'm missing them entirely! I just... I'm no longer very good at sitting down to watch TV. I'm going to have to find some way to watch my events. I'm sure You Tube will be very helpful.

I'm interested in Gymnastics, Swimming & Diving, and the Equestrian events. woo.

~~~

Speaking of You Tube, Catherine Tate & Daniel Craig behind the cut. Two great things that taste great together! )

ETA: Valley Girl Catherine!

ETA2: Bernie Mac. :(

First, a Doctor Who fic rec:

Bed Bath and Beyond by [livejournal.com profile] cjk1701. Written for [livejournal.com profile] sizeofthatthing, although not listed in their master list for some reason.

I found this doing a random search on whofic yesterday when I was overcome with a need for Donna fic (omg Donna don't leave me. *sob*). It's lovely, with understated angst, and is surprisingly hot for being more DoctorDonnafriends than Doctor/Donna. And short, as most Donna fic seems to be at this moment. Set post Midnight, no spoilers for 4x11 or 12.

Of possible interest to some folks: France OKs three-strikes piracy effort

The French government has given the green light to the controversial "Internet and creation" law, which is designed to control online piracy.

And [livejournal.com profile] fannish5! I never do these, but I liked this one.

Name 5 characters you didn't like at first, but eventually learned to love.


In no particular order:

1. Fanny Price (Mansfield Park, Jane Austen) -- In actually, it wasn't that I initially didn't like Fanny, although she rather embodies that sort of character who you feel you have to like only because she's so "good", but I didn't feel much love for the entire novel because it's the only one of Austen's books where I *doubted* that Fanny and Edmund were meant to be together (I rather think Edmund is a boob), not in the way the couples in her other novels are meant to be together. But, since then, I've truly begun to think it's one of Austen's better work, and come to appreciate Fanny for the tiny, dark, unpleasent bits in her character.

2. Severus Snape (Harry Potter, JKR) -- Abstractly I understood why HP fandom loves Snape so much, but I certainly didn't care for him until his character became complete with the final book. In the novels, Snape is infinitely fractured and broken and stubbornly mean with a bravery born from love that's a little amazing, with whatever redemption he may recieve never occuring in life. I loved that; and it broke my heart.

3. River Song (Doctor Who) -- I'm still trying to process what I feel about River Song, but I loved her for two reasons: spoilers! )

4. Linus Caldwell (Ocean's 11) -- I'm not sure why I have him here, but truly, I seriously didn't like Linus in the first film, but then by the third film I loved him. *shrug* Rather mirrors my disgruntled affection for Matt Damon. *g* bwah.

5. Tom Paris (Star Trek: Voyager) -- I always liked him, but I never ever thought I'd adore the character as much as I do now, starting off a Chakotay girl. I thought Tom Paris was just another blah character like all the others. I remember rolling my eyes over all of the Paris/Kim stories that kept multiplying liek bunnies. ahahaha. Acutally, I never did get into Paris/Kim all that much, but once I twigged to Chakotay/Paris, then I instantly loved him. heh. Sadly, Voyager was rather a gateway fandom for me; I fell fast and hard, but then never spent a lot of time there before moving off to Highlander, although I still, to this day, love the TV show ST: Voy so so much.

This is more for myself, than anyone else. I was updating my profile the other day, sort of trimming fandoms, moving them around and stuff, and just got to thinking about what I spend most of my (fannish) time thinking about, and watching.
Highlander: )

Doctor Who: )

Friday Night Lights: )

24: )

Jane Austen )

Star Trek )

Pirates of the Caribbean )

Harry Potter )

Flight of the Conchords: )

Deadwood: )

Ocean's 11: )

Phew! Man, I've gotten no work done today.... meep. But fun! Yay my shows. I loves them lots. I didn't include Torchwood because, I just don't know about that show. I am watching it every week, which is something I'm not doing for shows I really love (and blame DW, really. [livejournal.com profile] laurashapiro, you're so right about TW being methadone!) but I rather hated this week's episode, and the previews for next week didn't leave me feeling in the least bit excited. Still? I love Ianto and Rhys and Martha as long as she's on it. This may just have to be a show I sorta kinda watch for the sake of the Whoverse.

I may get back into Lost at one point, but I haven't been watching since it started back up. I plan to watch. I mean, I gotta know what happens. But, not right now and I'm not really feeling the loss. And the same thing goes for BSG, and again, not really feeling the loss. Last season was brutal, man, and kind of killed the joy although doesn't mean I don't still love it, 'cause I do. I'm in it for Admiral Adama.

Aaaanyywayyys, that's me in a fannish, er, nutshell. :D Also, GIP. Look, I has a Connor! <3 <3

It's been nearly two weeks since I posted last, and feels like months, actually. School started up again yesterday. blerg. I'm alive. Writing. Broke 50,000 words, so yay. :D

The meme from my last post interests me, and, as an exercise, I'm going to do it for a few more fandoms. just 'cause. Highlander, Lost, and Wiseguy are already covered.

The questions:

01. The first character I first fell in love with
02. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now
03. The character everyone else loves that I don't
04. The character I love that everyone else hates
05. The character I used to love but don't any longer
06. The character I would shag anytime
07. The character I'd want to be like
08. The character I'd slap
09. A pairing that I love
10. A pairing that I despise

hafital: (ST:TOS -- I am awesome)
-- I asked to go home early today from work. I woke up with a sore throat and it hasn't really gotten any better, and I was just wasting time at work anyway. I have two claim referrals to do, but erg. brain ded.

-- I found my iPod! It was in my trunk. o.0 Must have fallen out of my computer case sometime, I guess. And this after I settled on buying myself a new iShuffle. Darn! lol. (but they're soooo cuuuute)

-- Dad's doing well. Although, today he goes in for a shot of something, so we'll see how he feels after that.

-- I love Kirk in The Enemy Within, especially the Eyeliner Of Evil he wears as his primal, evil self. Also, Harry Mudd? GAY.

-- I have The Man Trap and The Naked Time waiting for me. Seriously, who named these episodes? They're like discount, bargain basement chicklit titles. Or pulp fiction titles.

"To capture the wandering eye of the Captain, he had to resort to extreme measures... the chase is on, in The Man Trap."[insert appropriate pic of Kirk in a cage, shirt ripped, and Spock standing off to the side, arms crossed, with a smirk]

-- I'm doing some research for work into the new HBO television show Flight of the Conchords. Okay, I think I love it. All the clips are worth watching, but I especially love She's So Hot, Boom and Inner City Pressure and Band Meeting with Murray. Okay, just watch them all.

-- Speaking of fun streaming videos, I've watched this 24 Jack Bauer vid like a gazillion times. *watches again*

-- And also speaking of cute boys, I did get to watch Ocean's 13 over the weekend with my friend's S and J, and adored it. I still think the first one's the best, but I don't really care. I adore them. :D In fact, I think when I'm done posting this I'm going to indulge myself and watch the first two films again. yayz.

Because [livejournal.com profile] killabeez asked, and her wish is my command. :) Of course, most of the stories I do write would not have been on this list unless I had already started writing it. Meaning, the stories I end up writing usually are not the stories I think about writing. Do Not Lay Heavy On My Heart is a great example of this. This story was not hanging around in my head waiting for me to get to - but it got written before any of the story ideas I have here. This is likely to happen again. So, go figure, really. *shrug*

Also, right now, other concerns take precedence over writing fan fiction and television in general and it's a little bit hard for me to commit to writing long, plotty fic, so shorter, quick fics might come to light as they come before any of these. That's just the way of it. I hope I do get to write everything here, but I can't say that I definitely will.

this way to self-indulgence )

wow. That's a lot more than I thought. *bigeyes*

Of all my fav pairings, I believe Danny Ocean/Rusty Ryan are the most broccoli-worthy of the bunch.
