be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (A:tLA: Kyoshi: a terrifying beauty)
So, it is Three Weeks for Dreamwidth. I'm planning to do a GK reaction post sometime, because that was a beautiful, beautiful show, in the way truth is beautiful. And I'm also snagging from everywhere:

What kind of topics/entries would you like to see me posting about? Any particular questions you've always wanted to ask me but have resisted because the answer would be a huge essay? Ever want to wind me up and watch me go on a particular topic? Anything you've heard me say "I should write that entry about $foo I've been meaning to write" and have been patiently waiting for?

Alternatively, you can request fic for any of my fandoms that may or may not get written (ACK FINALS) and posted only on DW.

ALSO for those SPN fans reading this, read Below skyscrapers (for a dropout). It's for an exchange, so the author's anonymous at the moment. It's Dean/Castiel, with some of the most well-done worldbuilding I've seen in a long time. I almost wish it was original work, because the world created in this fic is incredible, so pulled together, all these little details at the edges.

+ Hey guys! the [livejournal.com profile] femgenficathon is running! sign-ups just finished a bit ago. I picked #17: The worst walls are never the ones you find in your way. The worst walls are the ones you put there--you build yourself. Those are the high ones, the thick ones, the ones with no doors in. --Ursula K. LeGuin (born October 21, 1929), present-day American author, particularly well-known in the science fiction and fantasy genres.

Now, clearly this is a VERY Susan quote, but I am considering writing about someone else, as I am a little Susan/Narnia-ed out. (Well, not really, but I don't know if I could write enough new material on Susan for it.) My options are varied, but I am considering a Criminal Minds lady, or perhaps Samantha Carter? I like the Leverage ladies too, and the SPN ladies! ANNA OMG she would be a good pick! but I do not know if I can write enough of her. I don't think I have a good enough handle on her awesomeness. Morgana, though I have watched, uh, almost none of Season 2? I feel a desire to write Doctor Who or Torchwood, toooo. GUYS I CANNOT PICK there are so many awesome ladies with so many barriers! HELP.

+ WHILE WE'RE ON SPN (even though we weren't) OMG 100 EPISODES I can't even. guys, this is the first show I ever started watching regularly, last year somewhere in the middle of Season 4, and I have been faithful ever since, and it has not failed me. by not failing me, I mean that it has gotten CRACKIER and CRACKIER in the awesomest of ways, with fanservice galore. They have even delivered some on ladies being awesome! though I would like more. I would ALWAYS like more.

and this episode! oh, this episode.keymash OMG AKSLHDGLKSHD;G SPN <33333333 )

And now poetry!

How To Greet Death by Gabriel Gadfly

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (T:SCC: John/Cameron: she had fine looks)
let us talk about my day, in which one of three random guys who were playing hooky while I was at Park told me to "keep running, whore!" ... on second thought, no, let us not. I am still unsure of whether my non-response was the best one. (the rest of the day was fine, though!)

we shall, however, talk about how I got my mind completely blown by Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles over the past three days, and am now flailing about how there are only TWO SEASONS and I want moooore and they can't do that not after the end of Season 2 they just can't omg NOT FAIR. I just. D: DEREK. and Cameron! and the MUSIC. "Donald, Where's Your Trousers" my heaaaart. JOHN AND SARAH <333. I cannot believe that cliffhanger they ended on, that's just mean. D: I was pretty much in shell shock after I finished the season finale, unable to get out a single coherent sentence about it. I'm still having trouble with that. you guys, John Henry and Savannah were so adorable, and Weaver was just askdhfls I looooved her and CHARLEEEEY. and John was really starting to come into his own those last six episodes.

this means, however, that I am all shell-shocked out and probably won't watch SPN until sometime tomorrow, because I have to save some for Doctor Who today (<3333).

we can also talk poetry!

Belfast Tune by Joseph Brodsky


Here's a girl from a dangerous town. )

We can also talk about how I wrote this up very, very late at night and got my internet connection cut off before I could post it. :P

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (Default)
today was busy, and full, and I am tired, but I had biscuits and vegetable soup and I had made both of them, and that was very nice. and now I am going to do some dishes and sit and hopefully write and go to bed, while listening to BSG music and being completely and overwhelmingly in love with it, and missing Kara Thrace and Lee Adama and the Fighting Agathons and Tory-who-stayed-with-her-people and GAH. (omggg, you guys, the Adama family theme! it is like the embodiment of all the sad Scottish songs that I have sung, the last year my sister and I were in choir together, and in our last concert we sang to each other and I cried during Auld Lang Syne because my sister was horrible and LOOKED at me during the verse I'd told her reminds me of us so much and it is the ADAMAS, who are heartbreaking in every way, and also bent around Kara Thrace. GUYS. D:)

last night's SPN! spoilers! )

today's poem is by Richard Siken, who I love, and it starts out odd but you have to stick with it because it is absolutely amazing and it ends with a sucker punch that makes you want to re-read it again and again. The formatting is off, but you can see it in it's original formatting here as well.

+ Am now all caught up with SPN, having finally watched the last four episodes. Oh, SPN. I am very glad I have never let you completely take my heart or it would be completely shattered right now. As is I am sad and worried and upset and at the same time SO impressed with what you are doing with the story. COME ON GUYS THINGS HAVE TO WORK OUT. Caaaaastiel! )

+ Leverage! This was actually about a month ago now (three weeks?) but I finally watched all the way through the Season 2 finale and ohhhhh my heart. OH TEAM. like familyyyy )

+ Criminal Minds returns next week! with what looks to be actually quite an interesting episode. The people for the spin-off intrigue me more and more the more previews I see. we shall seeeee!

+ DOCTOR WHO OMG YOU GUYS THERE IS NO WAY THAT WAS NOT AMAZING. *flaily hands* made. my. day. )

Now off to bed, after I take a quick shower and brush my teeth! for I must be awake at 5 in order to get to the sunrise service at church. (I always go to the sunrise service on Easter. You don't have to be a Christian to appreciate the feeling of sanctity and joy that it has.)
be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (White Collar: OT3: bound by trust)
Watched Criminal Minds 5x13, Risky Business )

I also watched most of Supernatural 5x11, "Sam, Interrupted." I dunno, it was okay. I wasn't in a very effective SPN-watching mood. I need to be feeling fine and happy, and I'm feeling more reclusive and worried. I think I'm going to have to rewatch it sometime - parts of it were hilarious, and parts of it were really, really interesting, and I want to watch them and be able to be interested and have thinky thoughts. Which I can't do right now.

And lastly! I used the last few remaining days of holiday (no homework until yesterday) to watch all eight episodes of White Collar, which has also been recommended to me. And it is indeed glorious, because Neal Caffrey is a shiney shiney thing of beauty, and the OT3 is quite an OT3 (El, I ADORE you!), and the latest episode was fantastic and the one before that was fabulous too (OUT OF A JUDGE'S WINDOW). so this goes on my list of shows to watch. (White Collar. Criminal Minds. Supernatural. huhhh. this is beginning to seem like A Type. and I don't even like most cop shows! apparently just very specific cop shows. I can't get enough interest in Numb3rs to watch it consistently, or, uh, any other cop show I've been told to watch except for The Unusuals.)

oh yeah! I watched two episodes of Bones at one point over the holiday. I... I don't know, you guys. I want to like it, I really do. And Temperance is really awesome some of the time, and Booth is awesome too (Boreanaz! that man can act), but something is missing, and I had lots and lots of problems with how unprofessional Temperance is, and how flip-floppy Booth's characterization was in the Pilot. I don't know. I have been told it just keeps getting better, but unfortunately we're now at a point where soon I won't have time to keep watching. So! if I'm to keep watching Bones, I'm going to need some really good Season 1 episodes to check out. Bones fans! what are the best/most necessary Season 1 episodes?
be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (Feminist: Text: emphasizing ur wimminz)
+ Today I had Christmas! my sister is leaving tomorrow and won't be back again for a long time, so we figured we would have Christmas this Sunday, complete with the traditional breakfast (Christmas Morning Coffee Cake, bacon, eggs, oranges/orange juice) and a tree and everything, which turned out really nice. :) We didn't do a lot of presents, but the ones we did were really good - a sweater, a lap stand for the laptop, a water bottle, and my sister got matching rings for all four of us girls. And then later at my grandmother's I got cash and a really nice necklace, and when we stopped by Whole Foods Market on the way home I got myself two boxes of tea, both green. I'm drinking one of them right now, it's quite nice. So yay!

+ School's wrapped up, except for my final in A. P. Gov., which is nice. School doesn't start again for me until January 20th, though I do have to get my books before that.

+ I'm working on the [livejournal.com profile] apocabigbang and have quibbles about a few things. I want all of the Pevensies there, and I'm specifically going to be pretty vague about how they got there. And I really want to have Sam and Dean and Castiel, but part of me wants to use this as a midway point for the Dean and Cas we see in 'The End', because it would fit pretty well as a 'break them more!' thing. BUT. I really want Sam in on it. So maybe I'll hint that this happened in the alternate-timeline-that-Zachariah-created too? AGH. I don't know. (Pairings showing up so far in my vague outline. Sam/Lucy/Edmund, Dean/Castiel, Peter/Susan, past!Susan/Dean.)

+ just something I wanted to mention - one of my friends who has watched the old Trek series/movies recently watched XI and was like 'I loved it all except for Uhura - she wasn't RIGHT. she was too sharp!' and I just sat there and went 'wut?' she also objected to the Spock/Uhura relationship because it wasn't in the actual series. which. I dunno, it was just frustrating to me, because everyone (in RL that I've talked to) seems to be bringing Uhura down when she was ridiculously awesome and so on top of things. I loved her! why can't everyone else? :(

+ I've still been neglecting my f-list, which is sad. I'm going to get back on top of things this week, though. I have been reading everything on my f-list, just been really distracted and busy, even after NaNo ended (portfolio! tests! omg for a second there I panicked and was like 'I HAVEN'T TAKEN MY MATH FINAL' but no. no, that was last Thursday. whew!). this week is purely for relaxing and hanging out online with y'all and writing. it will be fabulous!

+ it is rec time! divided up!

one show, two vids, three fics, lots of poetry. )
be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (Narnia: Edmund: non semper aestas)
(so, I think I'm mostly back! Finals next week, some A.P. Gov left, nothing in Latin but my final exam, and I'm done! OMG YAY.)

okay, so. remember the three-sentence ficathon that everyone at your f-list has probably been talking about. yeah.

this is a story in which [livejournal.com profile] grim_lupine and I make our best efforts to expose the entire fiction world of characters to Edmund Pevensie, because everyone should Edmund. ("NEEDS MORE EDMUND." "What does?" "EVERYONE.")

a fabulous saga )

SPN Primer (or, what episodes you have to watch to know important things in the Supernatural series)
for [livejournal.com profile] lassiterfics

Code: if it's indented in, it's good because of character developments rather than plot developments. The numbers at the end are ratings of how important they are to watch.

Warning: Contains like three trillion spoilers, though I tried to avoid major plot developments post-Season 1, and tried to avoid telling exactly what happens in the episode.

Here there be demons.  )

Enjoy! Watch SPN! And by the way, when you have time? You should totally watch all the other episodes. Any comments about episodes I missed that are important, or episodes that really don't need to be on the list are welcome.

(on a completely different note, come on, LJ notifications! I'm only now getting comment notifications from yesterday. Plus? 46 emails in my inbox this morning, almost all of them notifications of my f-list/me receiving snowflakes. That.. was a bit of a shock.)

sick. possibly flu? not really sure. head hurts, bones hurt, throat hurts, you get the gist. not going to class tonight or tomorrow - hopefully I'm in shape for Friday.

garh.

I'm listening to Glee music  (the mash-ups from 1.06! both the boys and girls did such a fantastic job, and there's a boy's version of the Halo/Walking On Sunshine too! this is fantastic) and watching SPN. wow, you guys, how did one show get three of the most talented, handsomest actors on it? one show. it's ridiculous!
be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (Misc: Landscape: temple of nowhere)
SO! [livejournal.com profile] zempasuchil posted a link to you are here: the journal of creative geography (!!!!!!) which made me whimper with glee because CREATIVE GEOGRAPHY oh academia you can be so RIDICULOUSLY AWESOME SOMETIMES. ahkhdlgkhsdlkfjsdlg

but I am busy I CANNOT TRY TO WRITE FOR THIS JOURNAL NOOOO I have [livejournal.com profile] xover_exchange due in two months, and one of said months is NOVEMBER during which I am doing NANO (I got my prompt for the crossover exchange, btw, AND OMG YAAAAAAY I cannot give things away but I shall have LOADS AND LOADS of fun!) and then there's the SPN fic I've been writing off-and-on for a little bit with [livejournal.com profile] marycontraire 's birthday in mind (it's going to be late, but most everything from me is late these days D:) and well at least I finally finished that Susan fic and posted it! because the next three months there is going to be one hell of a lot of writing! NaNo = 50K, [livejournal.com profile] xover_exchange = at least 1.5K but considering what I want to write will be probably at least double that, the SPN fic is threatening to be long if I can't curtail it (but I don't really WANT to), and the imaginative geography thing if I do manage to get around to it (which I had better!) promises to be full of ridiculousness and squeeing and stuff. *headdesk* 

Happy two-days-after-your-birthday, [livejournal.com profile] marycontraire ! I'm sorry this is late, for some weird reason I thought your birthday was today (my brain is scattered). eventually there will be SPN girls-being-awesome fic for you! <333333333333 you're awesome!

so, yesterday I went to the beach, with Sam and Kat and Esther and Matt-Esther's-boyfriend and his friend Adel. mostly it was lots of fun, and I really enjoyed myself. except for The Incident.

we'd been having what more or less passed as a mud-slinging war over the sand castle Kat, Esther, Sam and I were building and the two older guys kept trying to knock down, particularly Adel. one of those kid's surf boards got involved and somehow I ended up on my back under it with all of Adel's weight pressing me down. I hadn't been aware I could panic that badly. if he hadn't been being chased off by Kat by the time I got out from under it, I might have gone into instinctive defense mode and actually hurt him, particularly as I was also in pain (the center of my back was on a mound of sand and something popped). the mix of a larger man and a trapped space freaked the hell out of me, and I know that Adel would never voluntarily hurt me - he's a really sweet kid, honestly. it was just... scary.

heck, I can't even think of it now without feeling cold and my heartrate going up.

in much more wonderfulness, someone did a picspam solely about how completely ridiculously BLUE Misha Collins' eyes are as Castiel. and yes, it is as awesome as it sounds.

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (BSG: Apollo: smile)
things I read recently on the power of words and languages!

In my English reading book Major Themes for Modern Writers, the author Harvey Wiener wrote an introduction to a group of essays about language and said:

Yet we cannot help asking what exactly is language. ... It is a gift of the supernatural, societies with a strong belief in magic assert. In the Judeo-Christian world, the idea has lingered: In the beginning was the word, the Bible teaches; the word is divine.

the word is divine! see, that's one of the few things about Christianity that I love so much. words are important to them. REALLY important. I mean, some of the more annoying Christians manage to turn even that into this huge fuck-up, but still. words are important! I love religions that place an importance on language. *happy sigh*

anyway, it was one of the essays right after that one that I originally wrote down things from, because the guy writing it quoted something Samuel Johnson had said, and the something was awesome.
Sounds are too volatile and subtle for legal restraints; to enchain syllables, and to lash the wind, are equally the undertakings of pride.

a lot of the essay was talking about how languages change, which I really feel like just shoving in my dad's face and making him read it (this is the man who refuses to use the word 'fun' because it used to mean 'profane'. YES. I am not kidding - I could not make stuff like this up). and then there were two small things that made me sigh happily too in the essay itself (which was by Tony Earley).
Words and blood are the double helix that connect us to the past.

Sometimes the truest answer to "Who are you?" is "I don't know."

so yay for language stuffs!

tv this week? AWESOME, you guys. so awesome. )
be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (Avatar: Yue: *glare*)
You guys, I'm kind of shallow when it comes to my TV watching. I want pretty people, characters that aren't radically OOC, awesome fights, and I'm willing to ignore a lot if I get the things I want.

Merlin 2.01 )

Supernatural 5.02 )

Glee )

Heroes 4.01/4.02 )

And now, to finish writing similes for homework and go to English class! (... huh. 20 minutes. I might have left this a bit late.)

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (Narnia: Susan: the queen save god)
You guys, this is awesome! I've never had an actual TV season to look forward to before - Supernatural was the first show I ever had to wait for episodes on (what? I went straight for the classics! Buffy, Firefly, etc.), and that was just for a little bit last year! But now I've got all sorts of awesome shows to look forward to and hopefully I'll stop binging on shows and just watch a few episodes every week. I can handle that! (before I go into my excitement, the post-apocalyptic WarGames AU is being worked on, but it needs a fair bit of editing and I don't like the opening STILL, and I've been busily watching SHOWS YAY! Also, [livejournal.com profile] narniaexchange has started posting, and there are some pretty awesome pieces up already. SO EXCITED AND HAPPY!).

This fall is going to be so awesome!

Heroes: don't look at me like that you guys! I basically watched/read my way through all three seasons (do you have any idea how much I adore TWoP?) this past week (I really need to stop doing this) and I'm tentatively excited for Season 4 - the second half of Season 3 went a long way towards being awesome again after the horror show that was the first half of Season 3 (the continuity screwups made my brain hurt). I really, really love Nathan and Peter, and because of inhibitions that Narnia fandom kind of completely stripped away, I ship Peter/Claire. What? Look at them! (I mean, it's not like half the show doesn't have completely incestuous subtext! and if it's not incestuous, it's gay subtext! sometimes both!). In short, I'm not like 'OMG YAY!' about Season 4, but I'll definitely be keeping an eye on it.

Glee: I was a little unnerved by the sheer amount of sex talk going on in the new episode (AND THAT SONG OMG so wrong and yet somehow REALLY funny!) and I'm crossing my fingers it doesn't end up being all soapy but it still delivered on being funny and adorable, so I'm still really really excited for all sorts of things about it! Especially if we get to see Tina more! (I LIKE Tina!)

Supernatural: The 5-minute preview at Comic Con! "I learned that from my friend Cas, you son of a bitch." OH, DEAN. I AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS SHOW TO BE BACK. *bounces up and down*

The Office: Yay for the office being back! That's going to be a lot of fun. XD

Merlin: ARTHUR/GWEN. GWEN/LANCELOT. I think the only thing that would make me happier about this season being potentially FABULOUS would be a Merlin/Morgana plot going (man, can you imagine how AWESOME those two would be together?).

SO BASICALLY, SO EXCITED.

In other news, oh my god school agh.

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (BSG: Starbuck/Apollo: pilots)
My life in bullet points! (the last week or so, that is)

+ Mary is home! Obviously, this is fabulous. With her she brings Esther, who actually makes an appearance now, many games of Catan, lots of music, carved wooden spoons, and a need for adventure approximately three continents wide.

+ I've done a fair bit of writing. One Narnia fic, finally almost finished What Images Return, wrote Holland and Cedric just being, and a little bit of Celia and Sebastian together in Canada.

+ I start college classes this week. I mean, I was already taking AP American Government, but my two dual-enrollment classes start tomorrow. And one of them is a math class. Oh, joy.

+ The past three Fridays, I have biked at least 5 miles.

+ Esther bought two mice! The school year has started, and since she is working in a Montessori school, her classroom has to have animals in it. So she got mice! I have named them Hermes (black with no tail) and Apollo (gray and bigger, definitely the dominate one) after Greek gods. Esther has said 'NO we are naming them sensible names!' but she hasn't come up with any yet and people are starting to call them Apollo and Hermes. Sooo. *snickers*

+ I'd forgotten how utterly AWESOME the Season 4 finale of Supernatural was, and now having seen the promos for Season 5 I'm really excited. Also, for Season 2 of Merlin! Did you know this will actually be the first time in my life I'm watching a TV show as it airs?

+ I didn't sleep last night. No, really. I never woke up that I can remember, and I remember really long periods of being wide awake and fully aware of it. Also? Really vivid periods of dreaming/daydreaming, in which my mind took BSG and completely rewrote it. I suppose it could have been dreaming, and I woke up and didn't realize it, but I got very, very little sleep at most last night. I have no idea why this happened, though I suspect the aspirin I took for the killer headache I had yesterday afternoon (must remember to ask mom to get Tylenol).

+ During this period of not being asleep, my mind decided it needed to fix BSG. That show was fabulous, but after Season 2 it was a lot of talk and very little interesting stuff happened. It was only fun when Kara and Lee were spotlighting, which wasn't often enough. Honestly. I wanted space battles and Kara/Lee, and tey couldn't even give me that for more than two seasons. Hmph. Anyways, the first thing my mind did was think about biological warfare, and then characters started interacting and I went 'HEY that's Lee! And Kara! Wha?' So basically, the reworking of BSG is that there are no human Cylons, so while the surprise was large the Cylons only destroyed approximately a half of the fleet and bombed a few cities. Working from the idea of computer viruses, the Cylons had managed to come up with a clumsily effective disease that they injected into a few test subjects, who then then let 'escape.' The disease spreads rapidly at first, wiping out several million people, until doctors are able to develop a cure. However, a few mutated strains remain persistently, and prove difficult to isolate and destroy. I wrote three scenes out in my head last night. This is not happening. I have Cedric and Holland Celia and Sebastian to attend to! I have Harper and Connor to watch over! I cannot be writing fanfic that would most likely end up at least novel length!

+ Well, I am participating in [livejournal.com profile] autumnwrite, so you never know. It might get a little bit written. *headdesk*

oh, cedric

Okay, I'm pretty sure this is going to be a post on the scale of epic.

thanks and cracked teeth )
I've caught up with my f-list! I went back to around Thursday and hopefully caught everyone from then on. Sorry if I missed anyone!

Things I want to recommend to people.

A) [livejournal.com profile] zempasuchil drew Mary Blake/Renesmee. It is adorable.
B) Anything on [livejournal.com profile] houseofpevensie . I'm a bit erratic on commenting on them, but the writing is superb and I adore the characters.
C) [personal profile] animus_wyrmis posted her lovely Leah/Angela fic with no name. So pretty!

TV shows I watched while I was in a horrible mood - Chuck (about six episodes of the first season), Pushing Daisies (part of the first episode before I got kicked off the computer), Supernatural (a few of my favorite episodes), Project Runway (I have to admit, I generally skip to the reunion episode after my favorites get kicked off).

As proof that I really need to slow down on the fic writing and just concentrate on a few, I'm going to go ahead and do the 'give a line from each of your WIP's' meme. Um. For some of them it's more like post a paragraph.

harborverse, nostalgia!origfic, what images return (next renesmee), untitled susan!fic, untitlted narniaexchange, untitled erasureathon )

I must turn in one Latin assignment and two Government assignments, and then I shall return to play with fic! Renesmee metafic is being difficult. a) I completely forgot Seth b) I introduced the Cullens. I'm thinking that needs to be a later story, that this one should be only about Mary and Leah. I dunno.

RULES: Comment and I'll LJ stalk you to find THREE FANDOMS you apparently love. And then you answer these questions about them!

01: What got you into this fandom in the first place?
02: Do you think you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?
03: Favorite episodes/books/movies/etc.?
04: Do you participate in this fandom (fanfiction, graphics, discussions)?
05: Do you think that more people should get into this fandom?

[livejournal.com profile] marycontraire tagged me with Merlin, Narnia and Supernatural.

we saw the spaces inbetween )

Also, oh man command structure of a Roman legion is complicated. I finally found something that makes it a bit clearer, but it's still got it's moments. Also, I need to find out how many ships went in and out of Boston Harbor on a say, daily basis on average in about 1770 and I don't even know where to start.

I need to up my researching skills. D:

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (Narnia: Susan & Lucy: brb being awesome)
I have a very odd history when it comes to watching TV. Very, very odd. As in, up until about six months ago I didn't watch any. At all. Except for maybe Jeopardy every so often.

I think it was around... December last year?... that I finally gave in to [livejournal.com profile] etharei 's loud singing of Supernatural's praise and watched it and promptly fell in love (though since it is, after all, a horror show, I had to read a recap before I could watch it to skip the scary parts). I am still in love, by the way, though it is distinctly worrying me with this fourth season. WORRYING ME GREATLY. *eyes Dean and Sam* SHAPE UP KIDS.

Then I succumbed to everyone in the world singing Merlin's praises (this also included Rei) and watched it and CANNOT WAIT FOR THE SECOND SEASON HURRY UP OKAY YOU GUYS? *eyes* Mostly I watch Merlin for the lulz and the drama. AND THE BOYS, OF COURSE, BECAUSE THEY ARE JUST TOO ADORABLE.

I watch Legend of the Seeker on and off now too, though that's more of a 'when I have lots of time' show.

... and then, this weekend, I fell with a spectacular bang and found the actor who can make me laugh and cry simultaneously BUT HE WAS ONLY THE DOCTOR FOR ONE SEASON ARRRGH.

YEAH THAT'S RIGHT YOU GUYS. I am watching Doctor Who ([livejournal.com profile] etharei , is it weird that I can at least indirectly blame you for THREE out of my FOUR TV shows? Or does it just mean that you have awesome taste?).

But.... but.. *wibbles* I liked the Ninth Doctor, can I have him back pls? No, seriously. David Tennant's cute and funny, but Christopher Eccleston ripped my heart out of my chest and then was all like 'OH WAIT LAUGH NOW!' I have never watched another actor who can do that. Never. Him with the Dalek in Episode 6 was heartrendingly sad and terrifying, and the finale made me sob. BOTH TIMES I'VE WATCHED IT.

I leave this random post of nostalgia with AWESOMENESS.
