I'm working on a more detailed (er, extensively obnoxiously detailed) review and pic/gifspam for tomorrow, but um:

THE WORST F-LISTER EVER. I have not touched LJ since sometime Saturday, I'm sorry, I'm the worst. How's everyone doing? I'm catching up with posts atm, but I have some random tidbits:

+ It is so obnoxiously Monday. I did not want to get up. I have had four days off. I did not want to get up. Also I took some thanksgiving food home from my folks' house on Thursday and now it's all gone. Except for some lingering cranberry sauce, I think.

+ Going to Miami on the 18th to see some family for the hols. *\o/*

+ I fixed my laptop all by myself yesterday! *dances* I basically just replaced the hard drive and restored the system to factory, and it was ridiculously easy, but I still feel like a BAMF.

+ The Wire: still the greatest. Rewatching was a good life choice.

+ Been mainlining a lot of new music lately. Ever go on these insane downloading binges, too fast to actually let stuff sink in properly? My music folder is so fat right now. My favorites right now are the Tron OST and Kanye's latest, and various random songs I've been grabbing here and there.

+ Augh, Misfits. I don't need to be getting into more shows that aren't good for me. What is wronnnnng with me. I'll tell you what's wrong with me: Antonia Thomas' face is what's wrong with me. spoilers for 2x03 )

+ brief Merlin babble )

+ Good luck to those scrambling to finish NaNo, and congrats to those of you who've finished! ♥

Taking this one point-by-point, then going back to watching The Wire. WHICH IS IMPOSSIBLY EVEN BETTER ON REWATCH, JSYK.

+ Got my first ever assignment, and it could be good. I do need to consume the source again because it's been a while -- WHICH IS FINE, I DID OFFER IT. :D

Mannn, I'm all nervous though. I've only got till the 18th.

+ I didn't skip Merlin this week in case anyone wondered, lol. I have some feelings about it that I'll probably post laters but it was a busy weekend.

+ Meant to make a DH post yesterday, but I got distracted by starting a random rewatch of The Wire. So I will probably post that laters too. :D Fair warning, it's going to contain a lot of flail based on the fact that Harry/Hermione is still my OTP of OTPs, even though the R/Hr was presh too. BECAUSE WOW THAT FILM WAS LIKE A SUCKER-PUNCH OF OTP AND I WAS NOT EQUIPPED TO DEAL WITH IT. Two watches later and I'm still gripped in the clutches of a full-blown feelings attack. I wanna go read [personal profile] inell's and my old RP threads and read/write fic.

more later. Happy Monday! ♥

That was the title of 3x10, right? I think it was.

This pic/gifspam got way out of control, and for that I apologize. I'm not TRYING to kill anyone's browser, but it might happen ok.

spoilers for 3x10, hereafter referred to as The One Where Gwen is AMAZEBALLS )

Guys I feel like crap today. I spent all day yesterday cleaning and moving heavy things around and I'm running on just a couple hours sleep and right now I feel tired and achy and I hope I'm not catching something, also I'm sorry I haven't really been present this week and I have missed many posts, BUT I WATCHED MERLIN AND NOW EVERYTHING IS BEAUTIFUL AND NOTHING HURTS

omg this ridiculous show ♥

But guys I can't get my shit together enough to make a picspam/review/reaction post that makes any sense.

Probably tomorrow, or... idk. MORE ON THAT LATER.

Hope everyone's doing okay! ♥
heathershaped: (Merlin: Uther haters)
...oh, dear. If multiple posts on my f-list are any indication, there is Gwen wank. So shocked right now you guys, SO SHOCKED.

I'm used to having ships that aren't canon. Most of mine are not. I know how much it sucks and I would never mock that. I know how much this SHOW sucks sometimes, and I know people are angry. Personally Merlin has been making me angry from day one and continues to do so; compartmentalization has been the only way I have ever been able to enjoy it, EVER. At this point I tend to focus on the things about the show that do make me happy, but I get the frustration. I'm a multishipper; the show's been HARD for us in spots. That said, there's some stuff I don't get, stuff that doesn't make sense, stuff that actively annoys me, and that stuff mostly has to do with this assertion that Gwen and A/G have Ruined Everything. And I hope y'all know this isn't directed at everyone.

Now, this past episode of Merlin could not have POSSIBLY been less relevant to my interests. No Gwen, no Morgana, maximum Gaius, zzzzzZZZZzzz. That said, I usually review the episodes, and actually I do have some thinky thoughts on Arthur and Merlin and Gaius/Alice, and a few other things. This is not even a rant! *\o/* (LOL, [livejournal.com profile] pathstotread, I found a THERE there after all!)

spoilers re: Gaius, Alice, and Arthur/Merlin )

Finally, an episode I can be somewhat subdued about!

...wait that's not good.

Some of it was AWESOME though, and show some srs progress for our little show.

spoilers must prove themselves worthy to the people, so that they're deemed fit to....zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. )
heathershaped: (Merlin: OT4)
greatest episode of the season, or greatest episode of the season


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:



heathershaped: by <user name="batallions" site="livejournal.com"> (Who: imaginary friend)

You're welcome.

+ CamelotRemix reveals! I had a feeling that was you [personal profile] netgirl_y2k, thank you so much! ♥ Check out First Up Against The Wall if you haven't already, guise.

Also, lol, how obvious was mine, be honest.

+ NOW, A MEME. stolen from swatkat, netgirl_y2k, and various people on tumblr:

Name a fandom (or character or whatever related to a fandom), and I'll give you the scoop on at least three of my unpopular opinions related to that fandom.

don't hate me ok

Feel free to jump in and discuss stuff if'n you want!

+ GUYS I FEEL GOOD TODAY. I have today and tomorrow off work, which is awesome. Annnd I have been somewhat productive this weekend! I finished my [personal profile] camelotremix fic (a day late, lalala), and to celebrate, I went over to the Get Arthur and Gwen Laid Campaign at [livejournal.com profile] freemurmurs and wrote some truly filthy A/G porn. *claps in delight* Porn that I may never actually sign my name to, but still! You should all check out that meme if you feel as strongly as I do that Arthur and Gwen should get laid in as many ways as possible.

MY OVERALL POINT IS, I have written more in the last two days than I have in many months! Since the Gwen LAS, I believe. I'm hoping this means my muse is coming back to me and if it is, I might sign up for Yuletide since I have no other holiday exchanges this year (does anyone know when signups are?). I think that would be awesome.

I have much-neglected yardwork to do today and some other things to take care of, but I might write some more pr0ns today too, just to see if yesterday was a fluke or not. :D Apart from that, I have two beta jobs to finish. I'll send them along tonight, ladies. ♥

+ I haven't checked tumblr much at all this weekend which means it'll probably be overwhelming to catch up on at this point, but apparently there is some kind of campaign to woo people back to LJ by not posting on tumblr for a month? I know some of you know what I mean and have been posting about it, and I have some thoughts on it.

tumblr tumblr tumblr )

When it comes to my f-list, I feel like tumblr is not my problem so much as fandom drift. I've dipped into so many fandoms, mostly abandoned my original fandom, and made friends all over the place, and I don't want to lose any of you that I either talk to now, or have formed connections with through RP and whatever in the past. I still read your posts, and try to comment more, and care about all of you. ♥ You guys put up with my social justice ramblings, my random links, my Merlin posts. You commented when I lost my dog, when my mother was in the hospital last year... whether we still share fandoms or not. I love y'all, and I hope I've been as supportive a presence as you all have been. If you ever feel like we're drifting too far apart we can work on it. ♥
heathershaped: (Merlin: Morgana sleep)
I have a fic to finish so I don't have time to make a bunch of gifs this week - anyway, the only relevant one was already made last week, amirite.

It's just as well, as this episode was not a cracky one.

spoilers and some questions )

spoilers?? whatever nothing even happened )
heathershaped: (Merlin: Arthur red)
Merls 3x02! Well, that was better.

heathershaped: (Merlin: Morgana green)

Which is just a figure of speech; all is not in fact right. But YAY NEW EPISODE.

Spoilers don't think with their swords )

Not top five things - I'M WORKING ON IT - but things!

+ [livejournal.com profile] femgenficathon's master list is up! I love this fest every year; it always turns out some rare and wonderful stuff. Check it out! More than 70 stories in 40 fandoms.

+ Writers' Round Table at [community profile] camelot_fleet. I love that post and have bookmarked it because it's full of tips and tools for writing all sorts of fic. The ever-awesome [personal profile] briar_pipe is adding new topics every day through Saturday and it's still hopping, so give it a read! It's turning into a great resource. I'm so proud of the Fleet, and even though I'm co-mod, I wish I could take credit for the wonderful and unique sorts of things we get up to over there. *hearts Mei, Brains Of The Operation (tm)*

+ Mad Men was fantastic this week and True Blood is INSANE. I don't really have time to review either of them right now, though. *g*

+ Kickoff party at [livejournal.com profile] onceandfutures got over 1300 comments because people are CRAZY. ♥ But no, I'm really excited about it, I want it to be an open and inviting place for people to frolic, and also have some good discussions hopefully. It'll be funtimes.

+ I've been on a bit of a comics binge after finishing Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and wanting as radical a change of pace as possible. I started reading Runaways and so far, it is the comic of my SOUL. Next on my list (and my hard drive, haha) - Y The Last Man. If anyone has recs for other comics/graphic novels, hit me! (ETA: some FANTASTIC recs in the comments lookit)

+ Finally, Mark Reads Harry Potter, chapter by chapter, and he's never read it before. He's on GoF now and there is much hilarity. Sometimes I really, really miss that series.

Hope everyone's having a good one! ♥
heathershaped: (Merlin: thought i'd never see you again)
+ First, a vid rec! [livejournal.com profile] sweetestdrain's Make Something Good, gorgeous Gwen-centric vid in which she is awesome and there is Arthur/Gwen/Merlin OT3ness all over the place. The vidder highlights some of the parallels and differences between all of Gwen's relationships, really. And did I mention gorgeous?

+ [personal profile] sophieisgod has a bunch of Vividcon recs here that I'm working through too.

+ Moar vid recs! Take Me Home, a celebration of femslash.
All We Have, all about the ladies of Treme. Have I talked about Treme yet? I should talk about Treme at some point.

+ I'm still kind of sitting out of fic challenges right now, but [personal profile] camelotremix/[livejournal.com profile] camelotremix looks like a lot of fun and I'm tempted - I've never done a remix challenge before, though. I guess first I'd have to figure out whether I even have five Merls fics to submit. I guess I do. *g* Anyway, check it out! Signups (on DW/on LJ) are open until the 21st.

+ [personal profile] magnetic_pole has Neoliberal Holmes, or, Everything I Learned About Modern Life I Learned from Sherlock, and it is POWERFUL.

That's it for now. Hope everyone's having a good Wednesday/week/whatever!
