+ Also, that episode may or may not be my favorite of the season, weirdly. Felt more like old times. *g*

+ Oh! And hell, I'm kind of liking Vampire Diaries. Huh.

+ Actually, while I'm posting: NBC cancels Southland but Heroes is still on? LENO is still on???

I demand an explanation for this.

+ EEEEEEE. Bill Nighy cast in Deathly Hallows! *LOVES Bill Nighy* They're not saying who he's playing, though. Who do we think, Scrimgeour? Gregorovitch? Hmmm.

+ There is a femslash porn battle happening, people. :D:D:D Leave prompts; the more the merrier!

+ I signed up to write an essay on Teyla Emmagan for [livejournal.com profile] idol_reflection (it's like ship_manifesto, only with individual characters rather than pairings). *headdesk* I couldn't not. Someone (you know who you are *g*) nabbed Gwen before I could. Not that I won't love rambling about Teyla. <333 BTW, no one's done essays for any SGA characters except for John. And there are NO Merlin characters claimed except for Gwen just now, which is a shame. HP is pretty well-represented but there could always be more. :D If you have a favorite character in any fandom, make a claim and spread the love.

+ Finally, [livejournal.com profile] merlin_rarepair is having a Five Times challenge.

Here is where f-list participation is encouraged. Anyone want to leave me a prompt? Merlin/Gwen, Morgana/Gwen, Arthur/Gwen, Arthur/Morgana, Merlin/Morgana, OT4? Five Times/Things/Whatever. Lay it on me.

+ At some point I will talk about real life again.

Being a grown-up still sucks, news at 11.

Shipping meme stolen from a couple people on my f-list:

If you want to do this one, make the list of pairings before you see the questions!

Six ships you're into right now.

01 → Gwen/Morgana [Merlin]
02 → Morgana/Arthur [Merlin]
03 → Gwen/Arthur [Merlin]
04 → Hermione/Charlie [HP]
05 → Spock/Uhura [Trek]
06 → John/Teyla [SGA]

Three ships you liked, but don't anymore.

07 → Buffy/Willow [BTvS]
08 → Boyd/Echo [Dollhouse]
09 → Merlin/Morgana [Merlin]

Three ships you never liked.

10 → Harry/Ginny [HP]
11 → Dean/Sam [SPN]
12 → Kirk/Spock [Trek]

Two ships you're curious about, but don't actually ship.

13 → Kirk/Gaila [Trek]
14 → Teyla/Heightmeyer [SGA]

questions )
heathershaped: (Trek: Uhura)
+ Er, started my [livejournal.com profile] hp_rarities fic over again. Decided it works better from the other person's POV, as if I needed to delay myself more. *headdesk* Why I've yet to produce something for this assignment that I actually like enough to show people, I can't say.

+ If you ever have to send flowers as I did today, I do NOT recommend ProFlowers, jsyk. Between care and handling, shipping, saturday delivery, and fuck knows what else, they turned a sixty dollar order into a one-hundred and three dollar order. Needless to say I cancelled it and went with 1-800-flowers, which turned my sixty-dollar order into a seventy-dollar one.

+ Joe Flanigan is love. I don't even know what the Jace Hall show is, but he was on it (video in comments), and he's really fucking hot when he's being profane (and it seems to be rubbing off on me). So much so that I wish SGA had been on proper cable. I need an icon that says "Whoa, dude, I did not come down here to be in your little web-based bullshit."

+ Why am I so excited for Star Trek? I've never been THAT big into Star Trek. Besides, I don't actually have time to go see it this weekend what with vet appointment, Mother's Day, the massive amount of studying I still have to do, and I can probably just forget about writing until Tuesday. Still. *watches trailer again* *mentally shuffles things around in an effort to find time so I won't have to see it too far behind everyone else*

Okay, let's try this crossposting thing.

+ I'm making this post in Dreamwidth, and it should crosspost automatically to my LJ and IJ from here if I'm doing it right.

+ I got new glasses and contacts on Saturday. Woot! I think my new glasses look a lot better on me than my old ones, which will motivate me to actually wear them more. :P

+ Also, I got an iphone! *boogies* Tax money FTW. I love it, it's the shiniest toy I have ever had. I am freaking out a little, though. I managed to go for eight-ish years of keeping a cell phone without ever having a contract (My old phone was prepaid.) Now, I'm stuck with AT&T for the next two years, for better or worse. Commitment makes me nervous. XP

+ I marathoned SGA again this weekend, and I'm now up to ep 5x08, The Queen. I think my reaction to season four and part of five deserves its own post, really, which I'll make later, but if I could describe it in one word, it would be: Ouch. Strangely not any less ouchy for having expected it.

That's it for now. Let's see if this works. Flora says that even if you edit the post, the edits get made to all the crossposts simultaneously. Will be trying that in a minute.

eta: crossposting worked!

eta 2: cross-editing worked too! TEH SHINY.
heathershaped: (SGA: Ronon)
I'm now up to SGA ep 3x04 "Sateda" (why yes, you may get mildly spammed with this at random intervals as I work my way through the series; wot?). Anyway, just an awesome Team episode, I love the ensemble ones most of all. And RONON. ♥ Yay for character development.

I could not possibly love John Sheppard more. It's not surprising; it's why I love Harry Potter and Arthur Pendragon and Dean Winchester best of all. I fall for the guy who's sometimes an asshat but who's got his heart in the right place; who can't process his emotions and would rather not think about them. *g*

Anyway. John. Oh, John. To wit:

youtube evidence and spoilers beneath the cut )
heathershaped: (SGA: Sheppard)
+ I am having serious Dreamwidth envy at the moment now that everyone seems to be posting with links to theirs. Do want. *curses need to try new shiny things*

+ Dollhouse was awesome last night. Adele >>> all. If Fox cancels it, I will has a sad.

+ I'm up to episode 2x09 of SGA. WTF ya'll, I really like it. I dunno why I never figured I would. :P I hear the latter seasons aren't so good, but for now the writing isn't bad, and the acting is far better than I expect from a genre show like this one. I love Teyla (omg Teyla), John, Rodney, Elizabeth, and Ronon makes me laugh so far. One quibble I have is how many wasted opportunities there are when it comes to Elizabeth, and Teyla at times. They're both so awesome, but they don't get the shining hero moments that John and Rodney trade off on every other episode. It makes me want to check out BSG even more now, because I hear the women are really well handled and written by comparison (actually I hear everything is better written in BSG).

But yeah, every episode makes me ship something different, and I like shows that stay open-ended that way because a lot of times once ships become canon, they go to shit anyway. I hope that doesn't change in later seasons. Right now I'm liking John/Teyla, John/Ronon, John/Elizabeth, and I actually kinda like the McShep dynamic, a lot. And Rodney and Teyla's friendship is so lovely when we actually get to see it. For all his talk about how awesome he is, he gets so adorably flustered/pleased when she acknowledges his bravery. I really like the dynamic between John's team in general. And I could watch John and Teyla sparring all day.

+ Back to tinker with fics some more. Tomorrow, I'm doing Easter-related things with the family and then I'll hopefully write some more.

Still watching SGA. Up to episode 1x10.

Needs gen fic that has Zelenka and McKay geeking out, plzkthnx.

Even better, needs Big Bang Theory/SGA crossover with Sheldon-McKay.

I AM writing exchange stuff -- no, srsly.
heathershaped: (LotS: Kahlan)
+ Dollhouse might get a second season? If this happens I will be shocked at first, and then I will be bouncy. :D I need a Sierra icon.

+ I have been watching SGA. I... don't know why; I've never really been into it before. TV fandoms are strange; I suppose because they're so small, you see a lot of the same people across fandoms, and a lot of Merlin fen came over from SGA so I guess you could say I was curious. Anyway, I'm a third of the way through season 1. I'm not really getting into the fandom for it, because I hear it's mostly McShep (and also wank), but I kind of like the show, so far. I love Teyla first, Elizabeth next. (Also, apparently I am destined to like television shows where half my het ships are part of the fandom's biggest slash ships and are therefore rarely going to ever be written or spoken about. LOL. Which is not to say that I dislike McShep, but still.) *pokes around for some fic anyway; will settle for gen* I guess pretty soon I will be trying BSG, too? Bzuh.

+ Also! Started watching Big Bang Theory. WIN. Win, win, win.

+ Moar TV stuff -- I'm all caught up with Legend of the Seeker. Very entertaining! It's kept me watching; and I love Kahlan. She is so fierce I can't take it. Slow-motion fight sequences and kick-ass women FTW. But it's a difficult show to ship in because there are so few characters and Richard doesn't really do it for me. Might be the weird American accent.

+ Made some progress on my [livejournal.com profile] hp_rarities fic this weekend. *\o/* And I have a Merlin fic due that I may or may not get to; we'll see. *crosses fingers*
