heathershaped: (Merlin: OT4)
greatest episode of the season, or greatest episode of the season

I.

I don't know where to start, never has so much been so relevant to so many of my interests, I.

Um. This is long?

this is what spoilers do when they love someone, and are very image-heavy )

Now that the actual review is out of the way, I seem to remember promising a few people I would throw a party in my LJ if a certain thing happened in this episode.

...or didn't happen, I should say. So, without further adieu:

WHO HAS TWO THUMBS AND MADE IT OUT OF THIS EPISODE ALIVE???


THIS GQMF RIGHT HERE

YEAAAAAAH, I THINK A CELEBRATION IS IN ORDER. BYOGIFS.
heathershaped: (Merlin: Motherfucking Pendragons)
+ Argh, very busy, very distracting holiday/weekend. I have so much to finish still and I don't want to be back at work. Gah, I'll get it done.

+ Still swooning over this week's Merlin. May actually never stop. It was far from perfect, but. this brief squee contains spoilers, just to be safe )

+ PIMP: SAY IT WITH FLOWERS INTERNATIONAL POSTCARD PROJECT. In which we 1) send postcards to Angel and Katie at the Beeb to show them some love, and 2) hopefully the producers will notice that some of us don't find the concept of a Gwen-Morgana buddy movie episode to be the most hilariously absurd concept ever, Johnny. (We are nothing if not ambitious.)

+ I HAS GOOGLE WAVE. (Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] cherrybina!) I don't know a thing about it apart from a demo vid I watched back in the summer, but it looks neat? Ya'll know I can never resist. So, if you're on it, let me know and I'll add you or... however it works? And we can do ...something? IDK. I'll figure it out. I don't even know if I have invites - where would those be?

+ I hope everyone's week is off to a good start and that you aren't as behind on things as I am. I still need to find myself a personal ass-kicker. ♥

Oh, sorry; that ... that was all I had.
heathershaped: (Merlin: OT4)
OH GOD YA'LL. MY HEART.

MY HEART.

AWESOME. SO MUCH OT4 WITH AN OPTION FOR FIVE.

LEMME 'SPLAIN.

spoilers for Merls 2x04 and an open letter to fandom under the cut )
heathershaped: (Obama bw)
Obama's been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

DUDE.

DUDE.

!!!!!*\o/*!!!!!

(Also, yes, it is early. This is more of a show of good faith and belief that Obama can and will see his initial efforts (for de-nuclearization and his efforts at multi-lateral diplomacy which is not our usual pattern to say the least) through, and that the WORLD is going to hold him to that. And that? Is a huge fucking deal considering our standing in the world even a year ago. It's more of a "Yes, this, finally, you should really keep doing that" from the rest of the world.)

AND BASICALLY, GOBAMA.

Now I've got to get back to work. This news cycle should be ...interesting.
heathershaped: (Merlin: A/G animated)
In other words, I have seen Merls 2x02. I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHERE TO START, YA'LL. LIKE I'M GOING TO HAVE TO WATCH IT AGAIN. AND THEN AGAIN.

IN OTHER NEWS I AM SLOWLY DEMORPHING INTO A TWELVE-YEAR OLD OVER THIS SILLY, SILLY SHOW. IDEK.

PARTY

heathershaped: (Merlin: Gwen smile)
I'm hosting this week's [community profile] camelot_fleet party! GET OVER THEEEERRRE.

(Y'know. If you want to.)

This week's theme is porn and fluff (because fandom could really use some rn). Leave prompts, share picspams and recs, whatever. XD

(And once you've seen tonight's episode, jump into the spoilerrific version of the party in which we discuss and squee and drabble it out.

Bwee, more new canon soon!

I would just like to report that [livejournal.com profile] inell is now all caught up with Merlin, now that I've forced her to mainline the entire first series. She likes it, AND she ships Uther/Morgana. *\o/*

JSYK. ANYWAY.

Late reaction post is late! But basically, BWEEE MY CHEESY CRACKY SHOW IS BACK.

spoilers for Merlin 2x01 )

The archive for [livejournal.com profile] hermionebigbang IS UP!!! Bweeee, we have so much fic and so much amazing art so please check it out! Loads of different pairings, both het and femslash. [livejournal.com profile] inell is mostly responsible for it going as smoothly as it has. <333 Thanks to the pinch-hitters as well.

Later today we'll post a masterlist, once all the other admin stuff is done.

WHEE.




ALSO. OMG. People in the UK are watching new Merlin AS I TYPE THIS and I am so jealous. I can't wait till I can watch! Happy squeeing, all. For the moment I am subjecting Inell, who is here, to a Merlin season one marathon while we code shit. :D
heathershaped: (Merlin: OT4)
+ Actually, I can't, but you can thank [personal profile] such_heights for putting the song in my head. She did a Merlin vid yesterday that is epicness, go looky.

+ Mom's home from the hospital! It's mostly good, she feels okay and is in good spirits, but she's going to need to start seeing a cardiologist regularly. :/

+ I have so much to do. Went shopping earlier, which took up some time and I spent too much money, but I do have new shoes. Now I have to do some serious cleaning because this week has been crazy and I haven't had time, and tomorrow morning I'm going down to help straighten up Mom's house; she's having her physical therapist come by and wants things to be neat. And then [livejournal.com profile] inell will be driving up (Yay!) and then we're meeting [livejournal.com profile] seakisst and [livejournal.com profile] bratkartoffel for a movie or something else that's fun. (Yay!)

+ MERLIN IN TWO DAYS. You have NO IDEA (okay so you may have some idea) HOW EXCITED I AM ABOUT THE NEW SEASON. All signs point to more of the girls, awesome new plots, plenty of slashy funtimes, MORE OF THE GIRLS, and basically my cracky show will be back in my life.

I AM EXCITE

Would do some sort of spam to celebrate but it will prove FAR too diverting and others have already done epic picspams from the latest trailer - but here's the trailer anyway for those who haven't seen it yet or for those who want to see it again not that I've seen it fifteen times or anything:

two minutes of sheer gorgeousness and a couple of gifs under the cut )

+ Today at work we had our normal bi-weekly Friday meeting, even though it's Thursday, because Boss is out tomorrow. Now it feels like Friday. Meh.

+ What part of "if you don't want to read/discuss/participate in meta, then DON'T" do some folks not get? Have peoples' scrollbars stopped functioning, or do they somehow think they should be able to dictate what other people want to talk about as well?

+ Supernatural starts tonight! I can't wait to see what happens. For those of you who love the show but will still be compartmentalizing the race and gender issues, like me, ABW has An Open Letter to Eric Kripke. And seriously, don't read if you're afraid your squee might get harshed or something, idk.

+ The Beatles: Rock Band is out, and OH MY GOD DO WANT. Why am I so broke, f-listies? Whyyyyy?

+ Actually, there's something I'm NOT cranky about today, and that is MERLIN. Guys, I have Merlin on the brain. Is this what TV fandoms are like? Because with HP fandom we only got new canon every couple of years, so the mass fandom flailing was few and far between. But if I'm going to get THIS BOUNCY every time a couple of promo pics or a trailer is released over the next thirteen weeks? I am afraid I might, like, pull something.

+ Though Merlin is on the brain, I happen to be writing epic Potter fic at the moment, which is kind of cool. ([livejournal.com profile] inell is the master of plotbunnies, by the way.)

+ I missed Glee and Leverage because I was politicracking last night. Oh well, I look forward to catching them tonight. :D

+ Also, Ronon is pretty in my icon. No reason to be cranky about that!
heathershaped: (Merlin: Bradley & Angel)
Guys, I know you've seen this on your f-lists 85 times already but I NEED TO GET THIS DOWN OKAY. Please to be indulging me.

heathershaped: (Being Human: Mitchell/Annie)


Y'know, just in case I didn't already ship Mitchell/Annie/George like BURNING.

UNF. *dies a little*

When's season 2 coming?? Also, Being Human's airing on BBC America right now and you should all watch. Just sayin'.
heathershaped: (JGL: with Zooey)
Saw 500 Days of Summer today.

SEE IT. Definitely right next to Star Trek as one of the best things I've watched all year. And my expectations were high, as some of you will know. *g*

It made me laugh (a lot) and, surprisingly, tear up a bit, and bits of it were so much like a relationship I've had that it was kind of uncanny -- but I think most people who've been in a thing that didn't work out would see something in the film that they recognise.

Also, JGL is. Just. IDEK. <333 I couldn't get enough of his funny hair and dimples and skinny suits and ties and VESTS and obnoxiously large headphones and surprisingly sinewy forearms. And there was singing and dancing. And that ending. SIGH.

A+ movie, would see again, is what I'm trying to say.

FYT, here's 57 seconds of drunk!Joe singing The Pixies.

SERIOUSLY, YOU GUYS.

YOU GUYS.

SERIOUSLY.

BRB, WATCHING MERLIN ON A PROPER-SIZED TV SCREEN FOR ONCE.

8pm EST, ppl.

And True Blood later. This is cracky funtime night, or something.

Hm, US Open is still on and should've ended 16 minutes ago. If it runs over, NBC, I will cut you.

ETA: NBC ARE YOU KIDDING ME, DO NOT PUSH THE PREMIERE BACK BECAUSE OF THE EFFING U.S. OPEN.

SERIOUSLY, GET THIS GOLF OFF MY SCREEN. Sorry if this offends you, John Sheppard, you know I love you.

Son of ETA: Okay, okay. They're ending the coverage due to darkness, but they're still letting everyone finish their holes.

HURRY UP, TIGER, GDI.
heathershaped: (Trek: Uhura/Spock favouritism)
ST Reboot people: Do you understand how awesome Cadet Gaila is? I feel strongly about this. I mean, Uhura is my one true love, obviously, but we can talk about her later. I want to pimp out the green redheaded awesomeness that is Gaila for a second. I mean. She's from Orion, and she's in Starfleet; this alone is a big effing deal. Because yeah, she gets laid a lot, and she is clearly competent and knows her shit or she wouldn't be there. She's like Kirk, but green and a girl. :P There should be no doubling of standards in her case. She's intelligent and cool and I choose to think she was pretty good friends with Uhura, not just her roommate.

Orion women are freaking sex slaves and objects for the most part, in old school canon, and the writers have speculated that Gaila was in slavery like the others, but escaped. There is so much fic potential here and I would love to know more about her. And of course, as with Uhura, she is being hated upon in some sections of the blogosphere. But! There are people writing her. She and Uhura, two of the few women in the film, are being written about, wtf I love this fandom. I need to share.

Pimpage:

[livejournal.com profile] taraljc is hosting IT'S NOT EASY BEING GREEN: THE DOOD, GAILA IS AWESOME COMMENTFIC EXTRAVAGANZA on her LJ. In it, you will find fic recs, comment fic, and the most awesome macro to ever awesome. Go read and play! It cannot survive without us.

[livejournal.com profile] seriousfic has probably the best Gaila I've read yet, and has written Academic Discourse in which there is character study with Gaila at the Academy with Uhura and Kirk and awesome. She also wrote Going Down, most-movie Gaila/Kirk.

[livejournal.com profile] taraljc wrote House Rules, Uhura and Gaila gen that I would draw hearts around if I could.

[livejournal.com profile] yahtzee63 wrote Awkward, more Kirk and Gaila post-movie.

Now. With that said, I think I'm going to see if I can't put Gaila and Uhura into some kind of fic for posting. XP

GO BOYS!

Nothing against the French, but they just got unexpectedly and delightfully PWNED in the 4x100m relay and the US men's swim team rocks my socks.

That is all.
heathershaped: (TDK: srs)
In other words, I just got back from seeing The Dark Knight.

Un-fucking-believable. Just perfect. Batman PWNs any other superhero, I'm sorry. And Heath? GAH.

I don't know what else to say for the moment. If anyone wants to discuss and knows where to start, feel free to comment.

I really just want to run back out and see it again.

*goes to download soundtrack*
