Signal Boost: why Haiti after the earthquake is totally the appropriate place to set your J2 romance! /sarcasm

People are doing the explaining pretty well why exactly this is offensive, so I don't really have much to say beyond: oh, Author, that was not appropriate. I really don't know how you thought it was. And at this point, I really have to agree with the people who say that the intentions that went into writing this fic don't. mattter. They don't make it less offensive.

OH FOR FUCK'S SAKE, WORLD. give me a break here! Must you give me race-fail AND gender-fail on the same day?

I cannot even begin to describe how really, really unhappy I'll be if they do let AJ and Paget go. Seriously. Oh Criminal Minds! I trusted you! Don't fail me now. D: See icon for further opinions.

Laptop out to the shop for back-up disc-making and defragmentation, I think my mom said? But it'll be back tonight, yay! While waiting for it to return so I can write Stonehenge Apocalypse/Supernatural crossovers in peace. In the meantime, I got distracted from my mission to watch Happytown by the glory that is Methos. Snarky English-accented cynical kind of amoral dorky 5000-year-old guy who claims he sticks his head out for no one and then REPEATEDLY attempts to fight the hero's battles for him? Because he's a loyal devoted LYING LIAR WHO LIES? You know I'm on it.



DON'T WORRY, LASS. I shall return to Happytown once I have finished with Methos. The first watch-through, that is. (GUYS IT'S LIKE DEAN/CASTIEL THE REMAKE (or the original?). They have a dramatic break-up, completely with throwing each other around on cars and sobbing! Only not always as serious, and Methos has a sense of humor.) I'm finding myself quite liking Duncan too - he's so honorable! An honorable guy can sometimes be boring but you can ALWAYS count on him.)

WHAT. I literally just started watching Criminal Minds last week (oh god I need a life) and I was so happy with it because yay! Ladies doing things! And some people who aren't white! And I am pretty sure Emily Prentiss is gay, so that is cool too. GUESS I KNEW IT COULDN'T LAST.

SERIOUSLY. THERE IS NO REASON TO KEEP FIRING ACTRESSES. NCIS does it all the time (out of 5 female agents who did things...one is still alive. Death count for main male protagonists? 0/4), and NCIS:LA has two females out of a main cast of six--five of whom are white, of course, and Law & Order is just FRUSTRATING. Jesus Christ, would you freaking please give me some girls?!

(relatedly: there's a new TNT show coming next month with Sasha Alexander (NCIS) and Angie Harmon (Law & Order) as, idk, a cop and a medical examiner or something. I don't know how good it is but I'm totes going to watch it.)

Lol, she just sets my gaydar off like a *lot*.

Are all the episodes nightmare-inducing or only the ones I've seen so far?

Well, I have a rather long list of Things I Don't Do Anymore and I'm obsessive about checking my locks. ;p

I mainly watch for the Morgan/Reid adorableness. ♥

Omg, I have checked my locks more religiously in the last week and a half than in my entire LIFE.

Reid is the cutest. :D I really enjoy the Morgan/Garcia ridiculousness though.

Wow. Thanks for that first link. I...didn't realize people came quite that dumb? How did she not realize that was a bad idea?

Re: link two, if they let AJ and Paget go, it won't be the same show at ALL. So much of what makes CM awesome is the strength of its women, and how that strength is accepted as a fact that doesn't need to be stated heavy-handedly like in other shows.
