So instead of doing any work today, and instead of continuing to watch In Plain Sight, I am... rewatching most of season one, this time along with [personal profile] shadowkitty. I MAKE EXCELLENT LIFE DECISIONS, INTERNET.

"I didn't particularly appreciate our stewardess hitting on my travel companion, just assuming we weren't a couple" still makes me lol and lol and lol because, Mary, you and Marshall aren't a couple. Also, the way Mary's kind of surprised whenever anyone tells her she's hot/pretty, is hilarious. I GET THE SENSE THAT SHE IS USUALLY TOO BUSY BEING A DICK TO PEOPLE TO GIVE THEM TIME TO COMPLIMENT HER. JUST A BIT.

So, yeah, how awesome would pretending-to-be-married/together fic be for any fandom this fandom? (HINT: TOTALLY AWESOME.) Someone should get right on that.

Also, have a meme that lets me talk about my favorite TV shows some more! )

Fandom Appreciation Challenge: Day 1

Fuck yeah, internet! The Fandom Appreciation Challenge has rolled around again! :D

DAY 1: Rec 3 challenge stories or fanworks in your journal.

This was shockingly difficult, because I don't mark fic on my delicious was being from a challenge. I should really rectify that. I am trying to avoid popular fandoms (uh, for a given value of popular, because let's face it, while I read a shit load of fic in popular fandoms, it's nothing I'd rec, and for the less popular fandoms that I'd rec stuff from, it's still not fair because there are still a lot of people in those fandoms comparitively and I totally lost my train of thought here.)

Friend is Four Letter Word by [personal profile] tokenblkgirl (Being Human, Annie/George/Mitchell, NC17). Written for Porn Battle IX.
I really like [personal profile] tokenblkgirl's Being Human fic! This one is great, with just the right amount of "this is such a horrible idea D:" from George, and Annie and Mitchell laughing at him, and there's a lot of banter, and it's just a great fic.

Lovelace and Babbage vs. The Christmas Death Spider From Beyond The Atlantic by nextian (The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage, gen, G). Written for Yuletide '09.
The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage is fucking hilarious, and so is this fic. It manages to capture the non-dialogue elements of the comic perfectly, and involves Andrew Jackson riding a giant mechanical death spider. Also, Brunel is in it. And the Queen. Seriously. Fucking hilarious.

Silly Love Songs by [personal profile] athousandwinds (Singin' in the Rain, Don/Cosmo/Kathy, NC17). Written for Porn Battle VIII
The end is what makes this fic for me. Seriously, [personal profile] athousandwinds wrote my favorite favorite favorite trope(?) for OT3s where two of them were already a couple. It's an adorable fic, one that I didn't even realize that I desperately wanted until I read it.

Ahahaha self you are so fucking dumb

So, I realized last night, that the reason why I was so destroyed by Being Human's season finale was that I was expecting it to be upsetting the way season one's finale was, completely ignoring that, compared to the rest of season one, its finale was massively DDDDDD: inducing, and since season two has been more DDDDDD: inducing than that finale, its finale was going to be even more DDDDDDDDDDDDDD: inducing.

<i>Survivors</i> and Leverage spoilers, I guess )


(Also, tetanus shots hurt just as fucking much now as they did when I was 13. GOOD TO KNOW.)

I feel like I am never going to actually watch the season finale of Survivors. It's going to be so awful. :(

Being Human 2x07 and general Farscape spoilers )

IN OTHER NEWS. I have started the first Dresden Files book, and my fucking god Harry is insufferable. The only reason why I can keep going is that I know there's character development and he gets a whole hell of a lot better in subsequent books. Which, hey! Is great! I love it when dickwads realize that they need to stop being dickwads because it's getting people killed. BUT STILL. INSUFFERABLE.

Productive Day!

I am feeling terribly productive today because I've both got Robin a dog license, registered to vote, returned my town's census, and called up to make a doctor appointment. *\o/*

If only that actually made a dent in my to-do list. :(

MICHAEL: One evening, a patient was brought into my clinic in the middle of the night. He was tortured so badly I couldn’t believe he was still breathing. A man was with him. It was the man on your radio. I’ll never forget the voice. He put a gun to my head and explained to me that my patient had robbed him and that he wanted me to save him so the pain would last longer. I did what I could. He said to come here for my money — my blood money. There’s a place between life and death. Amazing how long a man can linger there.
PRESCOTT: That’s enough, all right? Okay. Bring everything upstairs. We’re getting out of here. Tony? Tony, can you hear me?
THUG: What the hell is going on?
MICHAEL: I know this guy. He’ll have people outside the bank, in your truck,and on your boat. You have no idea who you’re dealing with.
