Well, that happened. I'm sorry show, but )

There were parts to like, yes, but I'm getting my enjoyment overwhelmed by my facedesking.

Maybe I should just try not to muck their world turtle. IDK.

Further thoughts might be forthcoming. As well as possibly better framed and redacted. However, I cannot promise less capslocks, sorry.

I think I'm having an identity crisis of some sort. Like, I'm sitting here and I realized I don't even know when Spn's coming back, which might be mostly because I'm agonizing over the lack of new Merlin...

When did I change boats? I was not notified of this in a timely fashion. Not cool, self.

But. Merlin fic, I am gorging myself on it. And I'm loving how prevalently awesome Morgana is portrayed and how Future HQIC Gwen is written and this makes me SO HAPPY because, like, yes they are.

On second thought, maybe them burning Anna up in that episode where Mary and John totally stole the show did it for me, like, I find myself not really caring one way or another, just watching out of habit, and now I wonder if I'll still be around for the next season they've been promising. I think I'll stick around to see what's new and what remains.

So. Spn. I hate to love you, I do. Sometimes.

and here I thought hope died last )

Clearly the last couple of episodes were really not all that interesting to me, from a story-telling viewpoint. I do think they were well crafted for the most part, though.

I, as per usual, have mixed feelings about this season's premiere.

in case you're interested )

I did enjoy it. So, mostly love?

Comment and I will give you 3 fandoms and then you have to answer these questions.

1. What got you into this fandom in the first place?

2. Do you think that you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?

3. Favorite episodes/books/movies/etc.?

4. Do you participate in this fandom (fan fiction, graphics, discussions)?

5. Do you think that more people should get into this fandom?

Supernatural, Doctor Who and Firefly/Serenity )

Also? Is it wrong that I feel the utter need to read almost every singly book listed here?

so. much. love.

Here is a meta that echoes my thoughts on the episode, and so I'll be lazy and link to it instead of pretending to come up with something original.

Though I will say how much I loved )
Those are my two cents, anyway. Thoughts?

When you see this post a SPN quote:

Sam: It's not food anymore, Dean. Its Darwinism!
"Tall Tales".

Dear Fandom:

It has come to my attention that a whole lot of people, in a whole lot of occasions, toss around the phrase "I want my show back, you know, the one about two brothers on a road trip" the italicized text is mine and does not reflect the exact wording of anything I've read, it does however reflect the sentiment. Which is where my puzzled face comes into play, because this is what I don't get, what do you mean by this? What is it that you see it's missing? Was it ever there or is it more something along the lines of: "this is what I'd like to see happen"?

I am honestly curious.

Love, Confused Girl.

Um. I'm conflicted enough to post about it )

Kinda long. And possibly abusive of italics (and parentheses). But then, this is me typing here, so. It also came out way more positive-looking than I though it would, huh.

I has thoughts. And will have to go back to ep and re-watch it. Several times, possibly.

I think )
There. I now will hit the bed for a little while. Catch y'all later, kids.

Jesus Christ, it's so overcast that at 10.30 in the morning there is no light coming in whatsoever. None. The sky? is golden. I cannot get my fancy jacket wet! So, cross your fingers that it stops raining before three in the afternoon, would you?

Thank god it's Winchester Day, man.

One of my professors resigned today, because she did not want to make us go through the process of mid-terms to then have them be invalidated because she was no longer an authority on the matter. This logic, while slightly kind of her, excludes the fact that hey, mid-terms are next week and had she quit before the semester even begun (as she actually intended to do) then it wouldn't matter because either someone else's authority would have been asserted, or our time could have been used in another class whose teacher was not going through some late quarter-life crisis. So this one is down for the count, nothing we can do this far along the semester, meaning we're screwed. Awesome.

Since we're discussing (cussing) school, I will go on ahead and inform you of the many ways in which this university is sucking my soul through my skin, inch by painful inch. I WANT MY SOUL, YOU FUCKERS!

BUT, Winchester Day, y'all! this is what's keeping me together, and like, stopping me from smashing my head against the table's edge, or killing someone (I hear they don't have cable in prison). Never thought I'd see the day when fictional characters were the only thing standing between me and total insanity.

Oh, then [livejournal.com profile] maboheme  linked to these Doctor Who icons, and yeah, it's all looking up now!

Yesterday while walking home I stopped at this store's display window to admire a t-shirt reading "To Hell and Back", then proceeded to make a wee noise accompanied with the inevitable face-splitting grin and the slight vertigo this kind of excitement brings along, clearly the rest of my day faded away on sudden bursts of joy and squee over the fact that DEAN!!!

Today I went into another store to check out their lamps display and who do I find staring back at me from a picture frame? Jared effin' Padalecki, that's who, so now all I can think of is SAM!!!!


P.S.: Eeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!

tea_and_ink: (writing)
Uh, yeah. This one's for [personal profile] winterlive , from nearly a month ago...

::hangs head in shame::

Well, you guys know how difficult being a genius is, I mean, this kind of stuff, it just slips out of our very, very busy minds ::cough::

I'm gonna go now, go back to do geniuses stuff. It's a tough life, mine.

ETA: Oh yeah, forgot:
1. Reply that you wish to take part, and I will pick four of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee!

As time ticks away, I'll probably continue to expand this post. Possibly.

I'm back, hopefully. Man, been having crazy times lately, and except for the occasional comment in some of y'all's entries, I've been away from the internets and boy does that hurt!.

But mid-terms were survived (woop!) and the boy's back with his parents, were he rightfully belongs. I have my life back, so of course the first thing to do is to report back with you. Lovely.

And because I need the distraction, here, have some meme I snagged from [personal profile] silver_spotted

1. What do you think of _____________ ?

2. When did you last ____________?

3. __________ or ___________ and why?

4. What did you ______________?

5. What's your favorite ______________?

6. How would you ______________?

7. Who would you most like to ________ ?

There. Missed posting these things, man.

EDIT: Oh, [personal profile] too_rational are you still looking for the Dune books? because I found the eBooks I told you about. Remember? couple ages ago. So, if you're still interested, I can email them to you, just drop me a line ;D

In this post[profile] dodger_winslow goes on about how SPN fans in current state of freak out over the Reaper situation, are freaking out for the sakes of it (which, as it's also mentioned in that post, is not wrong at all if you really want to do it for the damn sakes of it).

All of which has inspired me to ask y'all: why do you want our show back? In full force, I mean, with a fairly decent season 3 and the fully developed myth arc and all the inherent fireworks.

I want it back because, mostly, it's everything a TV show has to be to keep me hooked for the long run. I am not embarrassed to admit that I am a quitter when it comes to TV, I didn't bother finishing up Buffy and left things around the time Spuffy came to an end (because I figured they couldn't top that, it's just impossible to get better than that), Angel lost me way before that, around the time Angel's kid got Cordelia pregnant, so I have NO IDEA what happened with those characters and really, when you don't care anymore? you know something's wrong.

Supernatural, otoh, is snarky (yes, snark ALWAYS comes first, which is not to say snark wasn't abundant in other shows, it's just a must have for me), tells compelling stories and has believable, emotionally realistic characters, it has a defined personality even if it is still working on it's own mythology (or to me it feels like it sometimes). This show has have some seriously stellar moments, moments that have stayed with me and have become iconic, even the weakest episodes were thoroughly enjoyable and thus I enjoyed. SPN emits this "we really care about and love what we do" vibe that just spills from every pore, and as a viewer I feel respected (even despite those, admittedly few and far between, moments my intelligence has been somewhat insulted. But even then, the awesomeness surpasses the possibly-not-there insult). It doesn't have completely far-fetched story lines, it´s all based on stuff we've been hearing/reading/knowing about since our most tender childhood, which adds that dash of veracity that is highly appreciated by a drop-out like me.

All this without including those little details that make us feel smart for liking this so much (for the reasons that we do, of course), like cinematography, sets, props, actors, scripts, themes. I mean, this show has episodes versing on CHOICE AND SACRIFICE, on the true meaning of faith, on the relativity of right and wrong, that's heavy stuff (I'm not saying other similar shows don't go there, they're just not as masterful as SPN is). They tell stories about brothers being brothers, and how you can be your own worst enemy, how the weak is often the strongest and how actions speak, but intentions behind actions matter.  They drive a classic, muscle car to the beat of the very best mullet rock to be found, they butt heads and make fun of each other in the same breath, they fight and they make up within three minutes (they're brothers, do not forget, this is what siblings do); we've seen JP grow as an actor in front of our very eyes, JA has proved over and over again that there is always room for improvement and for repeatedly mind-blowing  performances.

SPN has given us Dean and Sam, two characters so complex and yet so easily understood it's not possible to develop any kind of relationship with them that does not include both love and hate, sometimes in equivalent amounts. Tell you've never found yourselves wanting to hug them real tight and smack their heads together simultaneously, in the same motion if possible too; Dean girls out there, tell me you haven't agreed with Sam over Dean in more than one occasion; that you haven't wished Sam could have had a better life; Sam girls, tell me you haven't felt your hearts ache because of Dean, even when Sammy was hurt as well; that you weren't proud when Dean finished off the YED while Sam was pinned to the bark of a tree; tell me all these things and I shall not believe you for you be lying liars who lie. Even John is a fantastic example of what this show can do to get to the viewer's heart, loved and hated in equal proportions, he has stirred emotions so deep we're still feeling them even after all this time without him.

And that is why I want my show back. What are your reasons?
tea_and_ink: (porny)
This one is SO cool. It's Supernatural a la Sin City, or Sin City's trailer to Supernatural's characters. Really cool. I kinda want an episode with this format now. Maybe some sort of hallucination or some weird... something.

Supernatural trailer in style of Sin City.

There is some serious brain-power in this fandom, me thinks.
