Kathryn’s sent me two chapters of The Professor’s Discretion to beta in as many weeks, and I just received yet another this week. *twirls giddily* I do so love a prolific writer! And it's seriously like she's climbed inside my head to figure out what themes and types of exchanges I love the most in this fandom and promptly tailored the whole fic just to make me squeeful.

Like, at the moment, it's not very shippy, it's a mentor/student kind of relationship and I so adore that dynamic. Of course I want it to end on a shippy note, but I hate fics that have Hermione and Snape inexplicably fall for each other within the first thousand words. She's 60,000 words in and it's still on a student/professor basis, with little moments here and there that make me flail like a crazy fangirl and my heart exploding with joy, but it's not inappropriate or tacky or anything. Just...brilliant. *sighs with pleasure*

My unhealthy yet oh-so-satisfying diet.

Last weekend, mother buys me what is my most favorite coupon ever- too bad it only comes out once in a blue moon- the meal has ten pieces of original recipe chicken, ten Wicked Wings and two large packets of chips. OM NOM NOM.

[By the way, my aunt and grandmother had some of it, I didn't gobble it all!]

So obviously there was enough for leftovers til Sunday, right?

But then Ma worries I might not be full enough on the half-dozen or so chicken pieces left, so she gets my aunt to drive her to pick up a McChicken meal [burger, fries and drink].

And after that, she’s still concerned I might get peckish around midnight, perhaps, so she heats up half a pizza as well. *facepalm*

No wonder I can’t lose weight when I have so much junk food on hand! But I’m not complaining, I have the rest of my life to deal with health issues, for now, eating junk makes me feel good and that’s all I care about. It was an awesome weekend- we had our junk with Dollhouse and Fringe and Castle! Great food, plus great tv, ahhh, heaven! :D

I strolled into Jay Jays to kill some time while waiting for the bus…half an hour later, my bus was long gone and I was still trying on different tops. ^_^ It’s been a while since I’ve gotten excited over shopping, there’s been slim pickings here but I really liked the look of the cardi selection. Originally $40, they were on sale at $25- and they’re all exactly what I was looking for, it was just perfect for me! So I walked out of there with three brand new cardigans just in time for winter. ^_^

I was wrestling with myself whether or not to buy the third top, so I got the shop girl to talk me into it.

‘Oh, these two prints are basically the same,’ I moaned, giving her the cue to persuade me to make the purchase.

‘Well, one’s cropped, so they’re kind of different…’ she tells me.

‘So I’m definitely taking that one, but the other…’ I angst.

‘I own that one, and it feels so nice,’ she says encouragingly.

‘I know, right? I was just stroking it, and the material is so soft! All right, I’m taking it, put it through before I change my mind!’
And as she totals up my purchases, she reassures me, ‘You know, it’s winter soon, so this is a good investment.’

Exactly my excuse. :D



I don’t know if this is weird of me or not, but I have a habit of buying more things when the cashier is friendly. I guess because if they’re chatty and helpful, I feel more inclined to spend my money, especially if I’ve been pestering them; I feek guilty for wasting their time- even though I know they’re paid to do it!- and I want to make them feel like it was worth it, y’know? I'm sure they feel like their time was well-spent if I buy something from them, give them a sense of accomplishment and all. Call me a humanitarian. :P

-

My father and I spent over two hours in each other's company yesterday , engaging in pleasant conversation and companiable speculation. :O It's unheard of! And what was responsible for this miracle? The series finale of Lost!

We haven't watched it in years, but since it was the 'last ever' ep, we decided to tune in, and the experience was quite- enjoyable, bizarrely. Obviously the moral of the story is that tv can bring together even people that are usually mutually antagonistic, and if I want to- *gasp*- enjoy my father's company, we just need to sit in front of the tv together. *nodnod* Too bad this was a once-in-a-lifetime event...

[Btw, if anyone can explain that mindfrak of a finale, I'd appreciate it- I still don't get what the hell was going on! Muke was like, 'We're still no wiser now than we were five years ago,' lol!]

Sucktastic list of fail.

I was supposed to hang out with a friend last Friday but that fell through. I knew I shouldn’t get my hopes up and yet I fall for it every time. I keep thinking I actually matter to someone and then I’m proven wrong. Obviously it’s not worth having friends in real life, it’s just one blow after another to my self-esteem. ;_; I tell myself I'm an awesome person and it's their loss if they don't recognize it, but then why is it always happening to me? Why am I always the one it's so easy to forget about and leave behind? *throws a pity party*
-

Safeway stole $5 from me! The first time I use my card on their self-serve machine and it bloody rips me off! *scowls* Mother and Ma have offered me money to make up for it, but it’s not the same. *pouts* It’s not that I don’t want their money [perish the thought!] but that it doesn’t make up for Safeway ripping me off. >:[
-

Nothing happened with that job interview. *sighs* It’s been ages, so I think they went with someone else. I’m telling myself it's a relief, but I'm kinda disappointed. There goes another chance to be the responsible, productive adult I know is hiding somewhere deep inside, oh well.
-

I only have one session left with Sonya. *sadface* I was really enjoying these past sessions and I’m going to miss her. >_<

Though she joked, ‘You could get a job and then come back and see me.’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah, having the job would probably cause the stress that would make me need to see you!’

She’s been so lovely, it’ll be sad after my last session. *pouts* But $150 an hour? Pfft. So not happening on my dime.
-

Only I am lame enough to get hostile with an old lady. Okay, technically, there was no overt display of hostility except for the daggers I shot from my eyes, but she had it coming. >:[ 
 
I like to think I’m generally a very respectful, courteous person- I say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’, I hold doors open for people, I defer to the elderly…basically, you’d be proud of my manners, if I was your kid.
 
But on this occasion, the bus stops right in front of me, right? So instead of side-stepping into a pillar or backing into the crowd, I figure that I’ll just hop onto the bus first. Apparently that didn’t suit her at all, because the old cow actually tries to shoulder me aside, wtf?

So now I’m mad, and in no mood to reward her bad behavior, and I get on the bus regardless, because I will not give in to ill-tempered grannies, damn it! I move to scan the myki card and she then grabs my elbow and tries to push me to the side again!

At this point, I really want to elbow her in the gut, but being the non-confrontational wuss that I am, I simply take pleasure in the fact that my card was empty and I had to take up some more time paying the driver to load more credit onto it and then scanning my card again while she waited impatiently behind me. >:D Body-block, mwahaha, wait your turn, you nasty old biddy!
 
Passive- aggressive? Yes. Satisfying? Oh, very!

As with any non-canon couple that faces the obstacle of a canon pairing, a lot of Snape/Hermione fics have to deal with the R/Hr issue. I've seen so many reasons for their  breakup- he falls in love with someone else, he cheats on her, he's threatened by her ambitions, she's fed up with him living off her without pulling his own weight, etc. etc.

The most unrealistic I've come across is the wife-beater!Ron stereotype, wtf? I don't like this kid, but if one of the two was going to be physically abusive, it'd be the chick that sent a flock of magical canaries to peck the living crap out of him and left him with wounds for weeks afterwards, right?

But the best resolution I've ever seen to their so-called 'relationship', without demonizing or vilifying either character, allowing them to remain friends afterwards, is from a fic called Arachne. It's also the funniest and most in character...!

-
I decided to become an Animagus, which didn’t really surprise anyone who knew about it. You know that I’ve always been outstanding at Transfiguration, and it challenged me. Minerva agreed to tutor me, and after a short time of intense training, I succeeded.

To the amusement of Minerva, and the utter shock and horror of Ron Weasley, my Animagus form had turned out to be a giant tarantula. I found that a spider could be quite useful, but Ron couldn't get over his disgust and revulsion. This had, eventually, caused our break-up. Whenever I had wanted to kiss Ron, he had flinched, apologised emphatically, but still seemed unable to suppress his reaction. I felt that a relationship under these circumstances wasn't possible, and had initiated the break-up. Ron seemed relieved, and we have remained friends.
-

Bwahaha! Epic! As much as I don't like this pairing, I really can't stand it when shippers go Ron!bashing and make it all bitter and ugly [even if that is actually in character] because I just want everyone to be friends, instead of ruining years' of history. So having the break-up due to her Animagus form...hee! :D

CM 5 x 15.

Heartwarming scene of aww and confusion.




Mother and I were a little taken aback at Rossi giving a kid $500 out of the blue. I mean, we know he's given to extravagant gestures, such as buying the house for the three kids whose parents were hacked to death, but he had a personal stake in that case- their screams haunted his nightmares, he worked that case with them...but I don't think he even met Sophia here, so why is she special? Was it a case of 'sorry we asked your mother to attract the attention of a serial killer, thus placing your life at risk' but Hallmark didn't have cards to cover that ,so they went with the Communion excuse?

Anyway, upon rewatching it frame-by-frame, I realized that the rest of the team signed the card.



I spent ages trying to make my short-sighted eyes decipher those scrawls...what do you think?

Top left: David Rossi
Bottom left: Derek Morgan [although I don't know why there's a middle letter that's so tall]
Top right: Penelope Garcia?
Middle right: Jennifer Jareau
Bottom right: Emily Prentiss? I'm basing that on the giant 'E', not the rest of it...

Then again, maybe they're just meaningless squiggles and I really need to stop analyzing everything. *shrugs*

But still, even if the card was from the team, the cheque was from Rossi personally. Weird.

-

I call it the Hotch!gasm. :P



Emily: *gazes wistfully* Oh, that  strong manly profile, that determined jaw and intense, brooding eyes...



Emily:  *fantasizes*...those thin sensual lips...oh god, I just want to yank that tie off and tear open his shirt, scattering buttons everywhere for dramatic effect, and then...

Hotch: So, I was having relevant, intellectual, insightful thoughts about this investigation and if you would care to offer an opinion regarding- er, Prentiss? Hello?



Hotch: Oh- I recognize that look. Damn it, woman, we are on duty! Try to remain professional. *shakes head* You think you'd be immune to my overwhelming sex appeal after all this time working together!



Hotch: Honestly, I can't help it if women react this way to me. I'm not even trying to be sexy, it just happens naturally...



Hotch: You know this is getting embarrassing, right? Rossi's watching, which is just uncomfortable on so many levels.

Emily: *explicit thoughts that cannot be repeated here*



'So, we're just going to act like this never happened. Nothing to see here, folks...Everyone, admire the pretty fusion shot!'

:P What? Canon gives me so little, don't blame me for blowing this out of proportion! ^_~

Meme.

From weird_fin.

Resistance Is Futile.
~Leave me a comment saying "Resistance is Futile."
~I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can satisfy my curiosity.
~Update your journal with the answers to the questions.

1. Favourite animal?
I adore cats. I went through a mad obsessive phase when I was younger- had cat calendars, t-shirts, stationary and the like. Got over it, but I still love them.

2. Name a dessert that you DON'T like.
Crème brulee. It makes me feel sick. *shudders*

3. How did you get into fanfiction reading?
You know, it was so long ago, I’m not even sure. It’s probably a boring story.

I think the first fics I ever read were for Mulder/Scully. I read all the library’s copies of X-files books, and then I probably went googling X-files and came across a fanfic site that I entered out of curiosity- I think I used to haunt fredfarm or some such site for MSR fics.

4. Name a favourite author from the past two years that you've read from
OOH, tough one!

Published author- Ilona Andrews.
Fanfiction writer- TwelveYearsinAzkaban aka Kathryn. *adores*

5. If you could meet anyone 'famous' that has been dead for over 3 years who would it be and why?
A dead famous person? I don’t know any dead stars I’d really like to see. It's a good question, but I'm drawing a blank. The first person that came to mind was Kevin Smith, the dude who played Ares in Xena. I had a huge crush on him as a kid, I'll go with that. ;D









Of course, my attraction to him was purely intellectual. :P

TV Meme.

Day 03 - Your favourite new show (aired this TV season)
10 Things I Hate About You. A really good show about teens. It doesn't take itself too seriously and it's hilarious. Too bad it's cancelled. *pouts*

Snurched from vorquellyn.
Leave me a comment saying, 'Live long and prosper,' and I will comment back with a picture of the fictional character that most reminds me of you. Then post the same in your journal.

Resistance Is Futile.

'Live long and prosper,'

You will totally have to remind me about posting those on my lj. I have work to do tonight & I must get to it...but I wanted to say HIYA! and play along with those two memes.

Oh yeah, WH13 starts on 6 July here it the States. ;) Just saying.

Oh Lost. Basically this is what it was...
Island = REAL and everything that happened there, happened.
Sideways!Verse (when Jack had a son with Juliet {vomit - sorry never did like Jack with Juliet} - kind like Limbo/Purgatory but folks got to work on their issues and wait in a happier place than real world (Island) for the folks they met on the plane/Island and then move on together.

[identity profile] borg-princess.livejournal.com 2010-05-29 12:49 am (UTC)(link)
'k, I'm gonna take this weekend to think up responses to the memes- it takes me a while, but I'll nudge you about them next week, 'kk? *squishes*

Oh, thank goodness WH is coming back so soon! For me, anyway, because the finale just aired on Foxtel last week, so only a month to go, yay!

What a relief, because all my other shows have wrapped up for the season- CM, Mentalist, Castle, LotS...*wibbles over LotS*

See, Sideways!Verse was weird because Kate was there and yet in the 'real world', Jack was dying as she flew to freedom in the plane overhead. So I'm going with the notion that the afterlife is timeless and it's not like the days and months go chronologically there as it does here, because otherwise how could Kate be there as well, right?

So, people had 'alternate' lives in Sideways!verse so that they wouldn't be all lonely and miserable while waiting for their loved ones? It was just weird how great things were, I mean, Sawyer was a cop instead of this guy who killed someone innocent or at least wasn't responslble for whatever Sawyer thought he did, Jack and Juiet were amicably divorced and still friendly with each other [yeah, wtf, they got married in limbo? *snorts*] and so on and so forth.

It was all too perfect to be real- I originally thought it was like an AU where the plane never crashed and somehow that timeline was going to be carried out, but then everything was too happy and shiny to be remotely realistic, lol.

But yeah- the way Jack died was lame. If he hadn't gone like, 'LOOOOOCKE!', he wouldn't have had time to get out his knife and stab Jack with it. Shoulda just charged at him without the warning. [It's like the Sisters of the Dark, they always start screaming and wailing, giving ample warning to our heroes. *eyeroll*]

ALSO, Locke had just beaten him before when he was pinned beneath Jack by reaching to the side and grabbing the knife, so EPIC FAIL for getting beat like that AGAIN.

[identity profile] sunkrux.livejournal.com 2010-05-30 03:56 am (UTC)(link)
Reminding me later in the week is good, especially if you remember. ;) LOL

Yes the Sideways!verse is timeless and basically people worked on issues and got to be happier then they were in real life aka Island!verse.

Eh I'm not that fussed over Jack & Kate, it was however nice to see Kate back to her S1 badass mofo self then the stupidwishwashyletmefuckwithJack&Sawyer'sminds wench she eventually turned into.

By the end of the show I was only watching for the reunion between Sawyer & Juliet. It was EPIC and I'm happy with that. I don't really care much else about the rest of the characters.

[identity profile] borg-princess.livejournal.com 2010-05-30 07:57 am (UTC)(link)
Aww!I must see if youtube has that scene, it looks adorable and I saw snippets of it in the flashbacks in the finale, but I want to see more. *squishes them* SO cute!

stupidwishwashyletmefuckwithJack&Sawyer'sminds wench

This is why I hate Kate. Messing with their heads just to, IDEK, bolster her self-esteem that two hot guys wanted her? Bleurgh. No, I'm not going to listen to reason on this, I'm too invested in my Kate!hate to relent.

What is it with me and Kates, anyway? On Lost, on Sanctuary, on Robin Hood, argh, they plague me!

I was only watching for the reunion between Sawyer & Juliet

*nodnod* THIS, exactly. I was rooting for them, and I'm so happy at how it turned out. Sure, they're dead, that sucks,but we get closure!

[identity profile] sunkrux.livejournal.com 2010-05-30 08:06 am (UTC)(link)
What scene? Sawyer & Juliet's reunion? I highly doubt it since a lot of the US networks are cracking down on their stuff being on YouTube. It was an epic reunion. Much like how my Marguerite & Roxton shipping heart has imagined for their reunion *grumbles*That we'll NEVER get to fucking see on screen*grumbles*

I don't hate Lost!Kate as much as I hated Sanctuary!Kate. Stopped watching Robing Hood after S2 ended. Kill off my FAV character and you can kiss this fan's ass. But now really I'm not hating either character much anymore. Lost!Kate sorta went back to how she was in S1, all badass and shit. Heehee fave line of hers from the finale "I saved a bullet for you." To FLocke. bwahahahaha...dude she was so badass it was awesome!

As I keep saying, Sawyer & Juliet got the EPIC reunion that Marguerite & Roxton were FUCKING ROBBED OF.

[identity profile] borg-princess.livejournal.com 2010-05-30 08:20 am (UTC)(link)
Oops, I meant to say how pretty your icon was, and then I got caught up in wondering whether that flower scene between Sawyer and Juliet was on youtube and I didn't end up communicating my thoughts. *eyeroll* But yeah, they showed flashes of some scene where Sawyer gave her a flower and it looks so squeeful!

Bwahaha, well, yeah, I hate Sanctuary!Kate much more- I loved that show and it went downhill for me in season 2. Hopefully s3 will redeem it. Mainly, Kate just stuck out like a sore thumb, omfg. Enough with this, what do you call it, affirmative action or whatever. The cast was fine with a mainly white cast, it didn't need a token colored chick, damn it.

Okay, Kate shooting Locke was a good moment for her character! But it made Jack look even more stupid. *eyeroll*

*sniffles* Oh, the M/R reunion that exists only in my dreams. I had a dream a while back that they were going to make a movie to wrap up the season 3 finale...I was all giddy and excited and flaily- then I woke up. SO depressing. ;_;

[identity profile] sunkrux.livejournal.com 2010-05-30 03:18 pm (UTC)(link)
The eps the flower icon is from is called, La Fluer. Sorry I couldn't read your mind about that. ;-b

I don't think Kate shooting FLocke made Jack look stupid just meant that Badass!Kate was back.

I don't think they hired Agam on Sanctuary to fill some "quota" on race, it was decided that Ashely needed to go so they killed her off and decided to keep Kate on...and proceed to shove her down our throats, imho. It was like "Kill Ashley AND bring in this new chick who's sorta like her but not Magnus' daughter." I might not have had a hard time with Kate if they'd given us more than half an eps to get over Ashley's death. That and imho, Agam isn't that great an actress. Emilie (Ashely) was a better actress. BUT I can't say stuff like that in the fandom cause folks there will have a fit because I'm dissin' on Agam's talent (or lack there of, imho). I'm sure Agam is a lovely girl as a person but acting wise, imho, they made the wrong choice.

Oh I've imagined reunions between M&R for years now and then, like you & your dream, they go away. sad.

[identity profile] borg-princess.livejournal.com 2010-06-01 02:22 am (UTC)(link)
*bites lip* Ohhh, the ep title is dedicated to the Sawyer/Juliet moment? That’s so lovely!

Sorry I couldn't read your mind about that. ;-b

I knoooow…when I’m caught up in deep thinky thoughts, I somehow subconsciously assume that my conversation partner can magically hear my thoughts and follow along telepathically. *facepalm*

Yeah, okay, I’m probably just being bitter and that race thing wasn’t a real issue in hiring her [also, being Indian myself, I won’t get slapped down for making that comment, ahh, freedom!] but I’m still so gutted that Ashley left and we get Kate in to fill her spot. However much the writers spin that it wasn’t a matter of one chick ‘replacing’ the other, that’s how it played out and asking people not to compare them isn’t realistic. Especially when Ash had a way better storyline and slotted into place on the team more effectively than Kate, who was, as you say, just shoved down our throats and we were expected to enjoy it, ugh.

Seriously, the best eps in season two were the ones where I could pretend she didn’t exist [like Will and Magnus getting stranded in the middle of the ocean, win!] and those in which she played a main part, I still haven’t watched. Maybe when I buy the series, I’ll think about it, but no, not now.

imho, Agam isn't that great an actress. Emilie (Ashely) was a better actress. BUT I can't say stuff like that in the fandom cause folks there will have a fit because I'm dissin' on Agam's talent (or lack there of, imho).

It’s crazy how you can’t state your honest opinion in fandom without people going psycho and wanting to send hate mail and threatening you. *eyeroll* I mean, okay, if someone goes into a pro-Kate forum and bashes her, they get what they deserve, but to be unable to offer an opinion about the actor and how it affects our enjoyment of the show is just silly.

FWIW, I’m in complete agreement- she can’t act worth a damn. Everything’s so over-stated and exaggerated and…she’s like someone out of Gossip Girl. If she were on that show, I wouldn’t mind, but on a show where everyone else is a 10 on the acting scale and she scrapes by on a…4, if I’m being charitable…blech.

*sniffles and resolves to watch M/R eps this weekend*

[identity profile] sunkrux.livejournal.com 2010-06-01 03:33 am (UTC)(link)
Not entirely. La Fleur is the name Sawyer chose to give the folks at Dharma when they landed in the 1970s. The flower he gave her just played into that.

I was told that I couldn't judge an actor on only seeing one bit of their work. *rolleyes* I was also told that how dare I question the logic of Amanda Tapping, Martin Wood, & Damian Kindler. They're the ones who decided (at the behest of SyFy's suggestion I suspect) to 'shake things up' by killing off Ashley and bringing in Kate.

Thankfully Agam has toned down the over acting a lot since she first started so she's more tolerable, imho. Still not as great an actress as some seem to think she is. Hell, I don't like Rachel McAdams but she's a better actress than Agam (sorry watching Sherlock Holmes on DVD - got it for my birthday this weeked).

I haven't watched any TLW in a while. I may have to do a rewatch sometime this summer. :D

Also? *wiggles eyebrows* You're cute. Like, seriously, cute.

*wistful sigh* All my friends are so pretty... I feel either really lucky or really insignificant.

Hehe, it's okay, I took more than a few moments ogling that man myself... ^_^

Aw! Aren't you sweet. *squishes* Thank you, bb, I felt like the hugest dork taking those pictures and actually posting them, lol, but now I feel it was totally worth it. *preens*

Hee, okay, now you're going too far, I love you for boosting my self-esteem like that but I never see what other people see, y'know? Must be a 'beauty in the eye of the beholder' thing. *shrugs* My cousins got the pretty genes in the family, seriously, I feel totally inferior to them. *sighs*

You're lucky, you're definitely lucky. I'll join your harem any day. ;P

OMG, LOLZ on the Hotch/Prentiss picspam!!!! It made my evening : )

I really love them and so agree that Bernero gives us bupkis. We've had a few moments in Season 5 but this "friendship" he promised has never materialized. They're lack of contact even in the field is bordering on unbelievable.

They sent the girl the money for her first communion because her father was so excited for it but he couldnt be there and that was sad. I thought Rossi wrote the check because he was the only one who carries his checkbook around....he's old skool like that. Mind you, that's just the reason in my head....I really have no idea. But it sounds right.

Reasons for breaking up canon characters can get out of control. The things CM writers do to poor Will and Kevin flew past ridiculous last season. I lukced out....Haley left Hotch : )

TV brings families together is right. My mother and I stop everything every week to watch Criminal Minds and enjoy some mother-daughter time. I dont think we've ever watched a TV show together. I think most of her stuff is lame and the stuff I watch is usually crime and investigation shows. I got her into NCIS as well but we've only watched one together.

[identity profile] borg-princess.livejournal.com 2010-05-30 08:45 am (UTC)(link)
Glad you enjoyed it! I felt so lame at laughing at my own jokes, so it's good other people are laughing as well. ^_^ *preens*

Did Bernero promise frendship? I feel doubly cheated! I figured Em and Hotch got forgotten in the midst of all the other craziness- oh, how I weep for the promise of the one or two eps where we saw her picking him up and dropping him at home, being the one to wonder where he was and go check up on him *sighs wistfully*- but if he intended to develop it and then dropped it, I'm just much more disappointed. *pouts* I want it back on the agenda, damn it, writers!

Hee, Rossi's the richest, so I get him throwing around money...it's just that heaps of victims have just as sad or even sadder stories and we never see them getting handouts. I mean- FIVE HUNDRED BUCKS, jeez!

Lol, I hear you about Haley divorcing Hotch- our ship lucked out. The writers at least had the decency to make her agreeable about letting him see Jack, instead of being selfish and a complete tyrant, and she was concerned for him when he got injured...I miss Haley, I kinda liked her, and it annoys me when I see her demonized in fandom. *scowls*

I dont think we've ever watched a TV show together. I think most of her stuff is lame and the stuff I watch is usually crime and investigation shows.

Bwahaha, I've had more luck with my mother- we watch so much together now! CM, Castle, Mentalist on the crime front...then Glee and Australia's Got Talent as etceteras. ^_^ I love mother/daughter tv!bonding time!

And I approve of your icon! So you found out who made it? I must check your profile if I decide to add that one to my collection [although I have no probs saying I don't know whose it is but let me know who to credit when I like a userpic too much not to use it]

[identity profile] mcgarrygirl78.livejournal.com 2010-05-30 01:32 pm (UTC)(link)
Yes, he said their friendship was central....but this was in the same article when he said "Who knows if Prentiss is straight?" which made the het shippers cry foul and the femslashers feel vindicated so one thing I do know by now is one can never truly believe a word that comes from Ed Bernero's mouth. But the lack of development those two characters have in reference to each other, especially after glimpses of *something* over the past three years is a real shame for me.

I dont like Haley. I thought she was OK, if a little boring as Hotch's wife but they made her character do a 180 in early Season 3, she became this passive-aggressive nut who was clearly getting her jollies elsewhere but expecting her husband to change and do what she said to keep her around. Is that the writers fault? Yeah. But it still made me not like her. And after all those years together, damn near 30 if they had really been together since high school, she wanted him to sign for an uncontested divorce. It makes no sense, they had property and a child and God knows what else from all that time together....and she just wanted him to hit the bricks. Well, after that I wanted the same for her. So I dont feel the need to demonize her but she's not one of my favorite folks either. I hate when people totally demonize Strauss. I do it for shits and giggles sometimes but I feel like her character has lots more layers and potential then say a Haley. I hope we see her again soon.

I never found out who made the icon but I wanted it so bad I just had to upload it. Its the first time I've ever done something like that....people need to label stuff. But the icon is so made of win I just couldnt help it. I had to have it.

Oh, and I always imagined Emily was the richest....old money....but a lot less showy about it than Rossi and his Italian leather shoes. Of course though, I always Hotch was respectable Southern money, his mother went to a boarding school and a Seven Sisters college. Morgan, JJ, Garcia, and Reid are regular, maybe even varying shades of poor but Hotch, Prentiss, and Rossi are definitely monied. I though Rossi just came into his money through his books and stuff but Commack, Long Island, where he was born and raised, the average income is like $110,000 a year so he was upper middle class at least. Enclaves like that dont appeal to the people with money if they havent been people with money there for a long time.

Man, I just woke up and I am rambling. But I love talking with you because you get everything I'm rambling about.

Oh, lol, that article...I rememeber it sparking the whole lesbian debate. *eyeroll* Can't we just say every charcter is bi til proven otherwise and let people ship in peace without having to get all worked up about it? Honestly, he totally did that just for the fandom reaction, there was no point to that comment otherwise.

Hayley turned into a shrew, and that was the fault of lazy writing, they decided to have some tumultuous changes in Hotch's life and that was best served through a divorce, so her characterization got shafted. I liked the glimpses we saw of her in season 1, that Pirates of Penzance thing was so cute! Pirate!Hotch! :D And even when she was being shrill and unreasonable and I hated her for Hotch's sake, I still got where she was coming from. I mean, okay, if it were ME, I'd never leave a man like him, but I get her being fed up with it.

Was she actually involved with someone else? I forgot that, if I ever knew it, did Hayley actually say she had another man or something? Not cool. >:[

Lol, oh, STRAUSS. She's evil! I don't get her hating on Hotch, it's so OTT and unnecessary! But she is interesting, and I like the respect they show each other, even if she is trying to get him fired and all. I mean, didn't she back down at the end, she could've gone for the throat but it seemed like she just threw in the towel instead of pressing her advantage and getting rid of him for good. FINALLY. If she didn't have it in for him, I'd like her better.

Ohh, I like your musings on the characters' lifestyles. I forgot Emily was supposed to be well-off, because she doesn't flaunt it the way Rossi does. I thought his wealth was from his books, but your point about the area where he was raised is interesting, so he was already comfortably situated even before he became a best-seller.

Rambling is good, it's fun! *squishes* ^_^

Someone calls the house, Hotch picks up the phone, they hang up and then Haley's cell phone rings and she leaves the house....that's Infidelity 101 on TV. As far as I'm concerned they closed the door on her for me when they painted her that way. Again, bad writing, maybe, but I was done after that.

I actually love Strauss. I dont quite get why she was so intent on getting rid of Hotch and Gideon, she can be a ball buster without being hellbent on taking their jobs, what they love to do. But its really my own fault I fell in love with Strauss, writing her in an AU. So I feel the need to defend her all the time but canon Strauss is kinda shrewish, a bit one-dimensional, and could stand some better material. I still love her, and Jayne Atkinson to boot.

Shippers can be insane, even me sometimes. I dont think Ed knows who he's dealing with, he should not be rattling the cages of the asylum. I love to write all kinds of things, explore, have fun, try crazy secondary and tertiary ships, live in long AUs, ship Gideon....its fun for me. But for some people it is so serious and that's it. Emily's gay dammit! Emily's straight dammit and if she's gay i wont watch anymore! Its insane. Not only does it make me roll my eyes but I just wonder how it can be any fun for anyone who could be so rigid in their interpretation of anything. I know we reflect ourselves in the character so often so sure you want to see your favorite as you see yourself but the harshing of other's squee is kinda where I draw the line. Its why I dont play in the big bad sandbox most of the time.....there are too many people pissing in it.

Woohoo, live long and prosper. Also, resistance Is futile.

JJ's signature is so nice, it looks real. And Emily's next to it OMG YAYZ *SQUEE*

LOL the angry granny! Oh, you <3

[identity profile] borg-princess.livejournal.com 2010-05-28 12:32 am (UTC)(link)
Lol @ your shipper!glasses. Their signatures are side-by-side, it must be true love! :D I envy you having this canon evidence of their deep and abiding affection for each other! *squishes*

You're right, though, JJ's signature looks authentic- I wonder if the actors really signed it, or more likely, some script person just scrawled a bunch of fake signatures on the prop for them. Emily's looks weird!

*facepalm* I'm such a wuss, I wanted to tell her off so bad but I couldn't summon up the courage- to confront an old granny! *failz*

PS. I'll get back to you with the meme responses, it takes me a while to think of something appropriate...

Maybe the BAU were all crowding around a table signing the card at the same time, and there wasn't enough room around one side so Emily signed her's from upside down.

....not that I think about these things in detail < _ < > _ >

Okie dokey, take your time love!

Hehe, and JJ took the opportunity to gaze down Emily's top as she leaned forward to scrawl her name in the card...well, if the woman will wear such low necklines, can't blame a girl for looking, can you? *ogles shamelessly*

not that I think about these things in detail

Not that it would be a terrible thing if you did! I applaud your reasoning!

*squishes* Will do. *puts on thinking cap*

PS. You know how a long time ago, when we were talking about blonde/brunnette ships, I mentioned these two ladies from The Lost World and how they got into a mudfight? I finally got that ep onto my laptop and snipped that scene out- would you be interested in seeing it if I upload it? I think it's hilarious....

You are totally a JJ/Em shipper don't even deny it! Have you seen the finale yet? It was kinda underwhelming tbh... but JJ looked so pretty in pink *_*

I would love to see that scene. Blonde/brunnette ships make my world go round.

LMAO! I was only half-joking when I started squinting through my shipper!glasses from a different perspective to see the basis for this ship...but damn it, Cara/Kahlan have influenced the way I think of JJ/Em now! C/K has this gateway effect for other blonde/brunette ships, omg, going down that slippery slope has left me vulnerable to other such ships!

Excellent, I'll see how youtube likes it. Just to make things interesting, I put a soundtrack to the scene- Thom Yorke's Hearing Damage. They're traipsing through a jungle, stalking people, so it seemed appropriate. ^_^

Five questions:

1. What's your favorite song ever/atm?

2. Tell me your favorite quote- can be a character or a real person. Bonus points if it's poetry! [I'm not very literary-minded, so I'm easily impressed by people quoting poets, lol]

3. What are you planning on doing after graduation? Further study, take a year off and get a job [do you already have a job?] or bum around like I am...and if you become a psychologist, do f-listers get a discount? ;D

4. What kind of role would you love to see KStew play? I know you pretty much adore everything she does, but there's got to be one type of character you would die of delight if she got cast as- whether it's an original character or from a book adaptation or whatever. [Feel free to populate the rest of the cast]

5. Someone messes around with the space/time continuum and suddenly, all of your blonde/brunette couples are flung apart and mixed up with each other! *ohnoes* Who are the new pairings and how well do you think they'd get on?

[I'm lol'ing at the idea of Cara/Rachel...every time she gets all peppy and bossy, Cara would just slap her down- literally. But imagine if somehow she got Cara to perform in a routine, omg?! The crack!]

Character you remind me of...

For one thing, both of you are called Kate. [You are, right? I'm terrible at remembering RL details of my f-list. *facepalm*]

She may be more mature than you :P [it's okay, you're young yet, you'll get there...] but you both have this wickedly funny sense of humor that makes me laugh helplessly, and expert way around sexual innuendo that makes me snicker knowingly, plus, you're both adorable fangirls in relation to your respective interests. *squishes*

out of curiosity, chips?



or chips?



i can never tell from one country to the next

cute cardigans :)

yech on the not getting together with your friend *pets you* in my experience, RL friends are unreliable creatures

sorry you didn't get the job :( *hugs you* keep looking and something will come up eventually, I'm sure

*hug* sorry you only have one session left with Sonya. any chance of finding a cheaper therapist? *hugs you more*

annoying old lady :( *glares at her*

Ron's a whiny prat, but a wife-beater? Yeesh *shakes head* I love the tarantula thing *sniggers*

the Rossi thing is interesting. no clue on the sigs *shrug*

Hotch!gasms, huh? I think it helps that he used to be Greg so females instinctively have their guard down *nods wisely*

*squishes* Life is sucky, bb, I feel for you. A healthy diet is one of my biggest fears. *quivers*

plus you're still way skinnier than me. what's up with that? *mock-glares*

You haven't seen my tummy. :P I keep it sucked in, so it fools people into thinking I don't have a pot belly but I do. *sighs* And flabby arms. But thankfully it's winter, so I can cover up, aha!

Also, during the week, I literally don't eat for most of the day- I'm on the computer all day, so that's probably why I'm not the size of a blimp yet! It's just the weekends I gorge.

The second pic of chips, lol. It's KFC's awesomely seasoned hot chips, ahhh... *salivates*

cute cardigans :)

Thanks, I love them! But now I'm all, 'I have to save them for a special occaison...wait, when is that going to be?' Lol. I'm going shopping with mother on the weekend, maybe that'll be special enough to count. *g* Otherwise I'll never wear them!

yay television for bringing people together *smushes*

IKR?! My father and me actually enjoying being around each other, it's crazy. But for one peaceful night, it happened. ^_^

yech on the not getting together with your friend *pets you* in my experience, RL friends are unreliable creatures

*wibbles* I know, I know, I shouldn't get my hopes up, but I want so badly to think that someone might care about me and then there's the reality check. RL friends are just not for me. *sighs* But I can't be too forlorn- I have you guys. I mean, you're sick and everything, but here you are, making me feel better.

any chance of finding a cheaper therapist? *hugs you more*

I have my f-list, I'll be okay. ;D Honestly, I'm at the best point I've been mentally in years. I'm disgustingly positive. I mean, I'm not happy all the time, I get upset and teary now and then, but it's not...OTT, the way it used to be, like the smallest things would happen and I'd want to literally die. Wow, it's such a weird feeling being mentally stable. *iz amazed*

annoying old lady :( *glares at her*

IKR? I was thinking people might judge me for not giving way to an old lady, but honestly, she was practically begging to start a fight. GRR.

Ron's a whiny prat, but a wife-beater? Yeesh *shakes head*

Character bashing annoys me. Because it's hard to enjoy a fic when someone's being assassinated in print so throroughly. Although a lot of times, it's hard to tell the difference between canon!Ron and a jerk!Ron written by someone who hates him, because JKR's version is pretty loathesome at times. But I'm tired of that Ron, I don't want to read more of him in fiction, so I like the ones where people redeem the boys.

I love the tarantula thing *sniggers*

LMAO, it's AWESOME. *dies laughing*

Ares was hot

I think that's where I get my thing for bad boys from, lol. It's all his fault!

there are ways a healthy diet can still be decent but it takes a lot of work. if you get plenty of exercise, you can hold off the inevitable longer *hug*

tummy or not, hon, you're skinnier than me by far thanks to my stupid hormones

you actually tend to gain more weight if you eat very little most of the time and only binge occasionally. you might want to try eating more regularly during the week and see what that does

ah, okay *nods* in the States, we call the first one "chips" and the second "fries" (well, actually, here, KFC calls them "potato wedges" since fries are usually rectangular in nature



and now I'm craving the damned things :(

special occasions are in the eye of the beholder *hugs you* wear them shopping. why not?

yay for the peace-making powers of television :D

RL friends aren't for me, either. i really think people expect too much from them and they expect too much in expecting most people to have them. internet friends tend to have much greater commonalities in my experience *hugs you*

always glad to try to help you feel better, hon. you know that *hug*

consider looking at other therapists since friends only go so few (they lack training usually and objectivity always). but it sounds like you're in a good place which is excellent *hugs you* just make sure to stay there, yeah?

as a rule, i expect others to respect the elderly, but not when the elderly behave like that woman was *pets you*

I think Ron could possibly have grown into a really great guy but, as written by JKR, he was a total prat. fanfic in that verse definitely exists (or SHOULD ideally) to correct JKR's shit-mess of a canon

just remember that bad boys are only acceptable in fiction where they have redeeming characteristics. irl, they're to be avoided like the plague *hugs you*

Noooo! The forbidden word has been uttered! *shrinks in horror at the e-word*

thanks to my stupid hormones

Wait, you have hormone issues in addition to all the other things that are afflicting you? Or is the hormone thing related to the other stuff? *iz so clueless about medical conditions* That’s not involved in the arthritis, at least, I’m pretty sure.

you actually tend to gain more weight if you eat very little most of the time and only binge occasionally

Lol, I know, people have been telling me that for years now! If I were skipping meals as a weight-loss thing, I would definitely rethink it, but it’s just that when I get a computer, I can’t leave because there is fierce competition and it wouldn’t be there when I come back, so I’ve gotten used to not eating til late afternoon. *shrugs* I was never a breakfast person as a teen, and skipping lunch came next when I got older. My body’s used to it now, I’m just dreading the day when it turns on me.

in the States, we call the first one "chips" and the second "fries" (well, actually, here, KFC calls them "potato wedges" since fries are usually rectangular in nature

Ohhh! ‘k, well, technically they’re fries here as well, but people call them chips anyway. We’re lazy like that, lol.

Mmm, I used to love wedges at high school- and now it’s been banned from the menu, thanks to politicians turning this into a nanny state. Did you know they fine people for leaving their car unlocked? Because if,IF, it gets stolen, then it causes more work for the police- so they’re fining people for something that might not even happen, it’s stupid!

i really think people expect too much from them

Just expecting them to remember my birthday shouldn’t be too much. Or remembering to hang out with me once in a while. *pouts*

internet friends tend to have much greater commonalities in my experience

Definitely, we make internet friends based on similar interests so it’s easier because we have more to talk about and it makes for a stronger bond, imo! *squishes you*

it sounds like you're in a good place which is excellent *hugs you* just make sure to stay there, yeah?

I’ll do my best, ma’am! *salutes*

I think Ron could possibly have grown into a really great guy but, as written by JKR, he was a total prat. fanfic in that verse definitely exists (or SHOULD ideally) to correct JKR's shit-mess of a canon

Lol, I love your judgment of her series. Yeah, I really wish someone had taken her ideas and placed them in the hands of a talented writer, because it had so much promise and then imploded spectacularly when she couldn't cope with the demands of complex characters and twisty plots and all. *sighs with regret*

just remember that bad boys are only acceptable in fiction where they have redeeming characteristics. irl, they're to be avoided like the plague

*nodnod* I'm in the middle of this YA book that is pissing me off so much because the main chick keeps yearning for the main guy, even though he keeps blowing her off and being rude and hot-and-cold, omfg! He may be good-looking, that's no reason to let him crush your self-esteem, gahhh!

Haha! It makes me feel uncomfortable when a shop assistant comes over and tries to talk to me because it makes me feel pressurised into buying stuff and I usually hurry out.... however, this may also be due to the fact I can't stand clothes shopping!!! haha!

I don't like Ron or Ron/Hermione but I agree that wife-beaterRon is a bit much .... That bit of the fic you quoted was hilarious!!!! Best reason for breakup ever!!!

I liked that episode of Criminal Minds though I couldn't get over the resemblance between the woman guest-star and Robin Tunney (pre-Mentalist and Mentalist pilot).
I don't ship Hotch/Prentiss but those screencaps were hilarious!!!!!!

Oh, I hate it when shop chicks come up to me- or worse, when I'm changing in the stalls and someone raps on the door to see if I'm all right! *haz heart attack* But I went up to the counter to get the girl to convince me to buy these clothes, lol, so she was very useful in that regard!

Ron's a major asshat, but I don't believe he'd physically hurt Hermione, seriously, she'd kick his ass. *nodnod*

And hee, I'm glad I'm not the only one who found that fic snippet hilarious, I had a huge gigglefit when I read that! The best thing about it is that neither party is really at fault so the kids can still be friends and it's not all weird.

Plus, if he's acting like a prat, she can transform into a spider and menace him, mwahaha!

I couldn't get over the resemblance between the woman guest-star and Robin Tunney

OMG! Mother said the exact same thing and I couldn't see it at all! What am I missing?! *resolves to rewatch ep once more* I feel like I'm a failure not being able to recognize Robin's features in her, but I didn't get any vibes...*wibbles*

Hehe at all the fics and that. I think the spider Animagus form was a very neat idea, but I can't take it that seriously personally. But yeah, Ron beating his wife?? WTF. NO! >_< I can't even believe he'd ever cheat on Hermione (most of the time :P) and he'd just get all sullen and drink himself into a depressed state..

Kevin Smith huh...very intellectually based I see. ;)

IKR?! *squees over gorgeous icons* WHEE! ^_^

That fic was hilarious and yet so in-character, while being tongue-in-cheek. So well-written. :D

Okay, I loathe Ron, but I don't see him ever laying a hand on Hermione. I read a discussion on this the other day in the POA spork on deathtocapslock and they thought it was because of this one line where he tells her to 'shut her mouth or I'll make you shut it'. Sounds really menacing, eh? Especially from a boy to a girl. So probably some fic writer took that line and ran with it, sparking other people's imaginations ['oh, what a great idea! Now we can ship Hermione with our idea of her One True Love and get rid of Ron this way!'] and then it became a massive thing. *shrugs*

But yeah, lol, Hermione's more physically violent than him!

As for cheater!Ron...*headdesk* That only came about because of his dalliance with Lavendar in HBP, I think, by going out with a cheerful, affectionate chick that's not shy about showing her feelings for him in more loving ways than siccing canaries on him, he's so gonna grow up to be a lousy, two-timing prick. *eyeroll*

he'd just get all sullen and drink himself into a depressed state..

Lol, so true! Why don't we see the kids get drunk, btw, they're always guzzling butterbeer. What's the alcohol content in that stuff?!

Kevin Smith huh...very intellectually based I see. ;)

Oh, absolutely. The fact that his shirt's off in half those pictures in no way suggests any appreciation on my part of his immensely lust-worthy bod. :P

Those outfits look great! I much prefer winter clothing myself. I do sometimes feel pressured by sales people. I feel like if I don't buy some of the things they suggested it's like I'm telling them that I was ungrateful for their help and I don't like what they picked out lol.

Ohhh Lost finale. I think they made it a mind-frak on purpose. That way the audience can interpret it their own way. I've read a bunch of interviews and fan posts and none of them say exactly the same thing.

I miss Kevin Smith so much *cries*

I feel like if I don't buy some of the things they suggested it's like I'm telling them that I was ungrateful for their help and I don't like what they picked out lol

Isn't it funny how we feel self-conscious about getting their help? I mean, they're paid to help us, whether or not we buy their clothes, but I still feel kinda guilty if I try on heaps of stuff and make a mess of their neat organization and then walk out without something...at least this time, I found a bunch of things I liked!

Lol, I think you're right about Lost. I heard the finale described as delivering 'everything your heart wanted but patently ignoring everything your mind wanted'. So they wrapped up the emotional bits, with the relationships, quite nicely [unless you shipped something other than the canon couples, lol] but totally didn't answer a million questions fans had! I guess it's up to them to interpret it however they want.

OMG, you loved him, too? *hugglesquish*

Your new icons are shiny. :)

the meal has ten pieces of original recipe chicken, ten Wicked Wings and two large packets of chips. OM NOM NOM.

KFC OVERLOAD. Sounds amazing. *sigh*

And after that, she’s still concerned I might get peckish around midnight, perhaps, so she heats up half a pizza as well. *facepalm*

Whaaat? LMAO

LMAO at you getting the shop assistant to talk you into buying clothes. Like you needed an excuse!

Oooh, new clothes are pretty. And who is that exotic beauty wearing them? ;-)

Btw, if anyone can explain that mindfrak of a finale, I'd appreciate it- I still don't get what the hell was going on! Muke was like, 'We're still no wiser now than we were five years ago,' lol!

I could ramble at length if you have any questions. I'm allllll about Lost!

I keep thinking I actually matter to someone and then I’m proven wrong. Obviously it’s not worth having friends in real life, it’s just one blow after another to my self-esteem.

Your friends should realise how lucky they are to have you. If you lived in the same town as me, I'd want to hang out with you all the time. You're that awesome. *squish*

Why am I always the one it's so easy to forget about and leave behind? *throws a pity party*

People are jerks. *kicks them for you*

I’m telling myself it's a relief, but I'm kinda disappointed. There goes another chance to be the responsible, productive adult I know is hiding somewhere deep inside, oh well.

Something else will come along. All is not lost!

I like to think I’m generally a very respectful, courteous person- I say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’, I hold doors open for people, I defer to the elderly…basically, you’d be proud of my manners, if I was your kid.

You're not my kid but I am impressed with your manners. *nodnod*

Apparently that didn’t suit her at all, because the old cow actually tries to shoulder me aside, wtf?

WTF?

I move to scan the myki card and she then grabs my elbow and tries to push me to the side again!


WTF????

She did whaaaat?

What an old bitch!

Re the CM scene... hated that episode, was all WTF as well... because CM is not that kind of show. I mean, for crying out loud. Was what they asked of her really that bad? *eye roll*

Emily: *gazes wistfully* Oh, that strong manly profile, that determined jaw and intense, brooding eyes...

LMAO

OMG THAT WHOLE EXCHANGE *dies and is dead*

You are brilliant. I need more. Yes? Yes?

Resistance is futile!

I adore cats. I went through a mad obsessive phase when I was younger- had cat calendars, t-shirts, stationary and the like. Got over it, but I still love them.

Me too! And I'm not at all ashamed to say I totally have a cat calendar at work and pictures of cats on my fridge. Yep, I really love cats.

But I doooo! Buying one or two of the tops was one thing, but for all three? I definitely needed some sweet-talking. And then I bought some shoes over the weekend. *facepalm* The spending spree- once it starts, I can’t stop it!

Oooh, new clothes are pretty. And who is that exotic beauty wearing them? ;-)

I am definitely satisfied with my purchases.
And d’aww, I forgive you for that Survivor slight you made against me, this compliment has soothed my ruffled feathers. ;D

I could ramble at length if you have any questions. I'm allllll about Lost!

Er, yes, so- you explained how Juliet *sniffles* died restoring the others to the present- but how did they get to the past in the first place? And what was the whole point of the island? Was it created to do something or existed already and harnessed for something or what? How did the six survivors get off the island when previously nobody was able to leave? Why did other people remain behind? Oh, and did anyone keep pressing the button after Desmond left? Or did it get destroyed or something, but then how did everything not go kablooey without the button-pressing? And…lots more, but I can’t remember them right now, so I’ll get back to you.

Also, did you think it was weird that Kate was in the afterlife thing with Jack even though when he died, Kate was flying to freedom overhead? That’s what my father kept harping on about, and I was all, ‘Afterlife is timeless, damn it!’

Your friends should realise how lucky they are to have you. If you lived in the same town as me, I'd want to hang out with you all the time. You're that awesome. *squish*

You’re so good for my self-esteem, darling. *wuvs you* Thanks for making me feel better. *hugs*

People are jerks. *kicks them for you*

Hee, too bad people can never feel it when we virtually kick them. Although considering the number of people I’ve stabbed and throttled and consigned to other violent, gory fates, it might be a good thing.

WTF????

She did whaaaat?

What an old bitch!


IKR?! I could not believe how pushy and rude that woman was! Jeez!

Re the CM scene... hated that episode, was all WTF as well... because CM is not that kind of show. I mean, for crying out loud. Was what they asked of her really that bad? *eye roll*

Not that kind of show, what? The pointlessly mushy and emotionally manipulative 7th Heaven kinda show or…?

And lol, I guess asking the mom to put herself on a psychopath’s radar and risking her baby girl was rough but I’m sure more people would sign up if they were going to get a few hundred bucks out of the deal. I felt like Modern Family, you know, ‘I’m 11, what am I going to do with fifty bucks?’ And here’s a kid half his age with five hundred!

LMAO

OMG THAT WHOLE EXCHANGE *dies and is dead*

You are brilliant. I need more.


Hee, thank you, thank you! I love it when people think I’m funny! It’s a narrow line between amusing and try-hard, so I’m glad I’m still on the right side of that line!

I’ll put on my thinking cap and will get back to you on the meme.

Me too! And I'm not at all ashamed to say I totally have a cat calendar at work and pictures of cats on my fridge.

Not to mention, an actual cat! Lol! That would be the most convincing evidence of being a cat lover, no? :P

The spending spree- once it starts, I can’t stop it!

Ugh, that's what happens to me as well. It's like a contagious bug or something.

I forgive you for that Survivor slight you made against me, this compliment has soothed my ruffled feathers. ;D

Awwwww, lovely. :)

I solemnly vow to never slight you again.

Wow, a LOT of Lost questions. I will try and answer them as best I can.

but how did they get to the past in the first place?

Okay, so underneath the island right, there's this wheel. Because Charles Widmore had found the island and was coming to "reclaim it", Ben turned the wheel and the island started "flashing" through time. When the flashes finally stopped, Sawyer, Juliet, Faraday, Miles and Jin were in the 70s.

And what was the whole point of the island? Was it created to do something or existed already and harnessed for something or what?

As far as I understand, it existed already and was like a "cork". Remember the light that Jack turned on the series finale? If that light goes out, the world ends. So the island is like... an island... cork.

Sometimes I don't fully understand it myself. I think I understand it, but then I question myself. :-/

How did the six survivors get off the island when previously nobody was able to leave?

They followed a specific bearing that the freighter had followed to get to the island as well and that allowed them to leave. Faraday worked it out. They flew out in a helicopter and then crashed into the sea, and Penny picked them up in her yact because she was on the way to rescue Desmond. ♥

Cue the greatest reunion scene of all time!

Why did other people remain behind?

They were doing trips back and forth to the freighter in a raft, but the freighter exploded (this is Widmore's freighter by the way, the reason Ben had to turn the wheel to move the island). So some people got trapped on the island. Most of them died except for Juliet, Sawyer, Bernard, Rose, Miles, Faraday, Charlotte (who died later) and Jin.

Oh, and did anyone keep pressing the button after Desmond left? Or did it get destroyed or something, but then how did everything not go kablooey without the button-pressing?

The hatch exploded at the end of Season 2. Locke decided to see what happened if they didn't press the button, and it blew up. So no more button pressing!

I will try to answer whatever questions you have. :)

Also, did you think it was weird that Kate was in the afterlife thing with Jack even though when he died, Kate was flying to freedom overhead? That’s what my father kept harping on about, and I was all, ‘Afterlife is timeless, damn it!’

I think the point was that it was set after they all had died, not just Jack. That's why they were all in... "limbo" together, because they were all dead. And it could've been a hundred years after Jack died, or however long Hurley lived before he died.

Thanks for making me feel better. *hugs*

You're welcome. *squish*

Not that kind of show, what? The pointlessly mushy and emotionally manipulative 7th Heaven kinda show or…?

Schmaltzy, I guess? I hate schmaltz.

Not to mention, an actual cat! Lol! That would be the most convincing evidence of being a cat lover, no? :P

Very true!

It's like a contagious bug or something.

But instead of making you feel all sniffly and icky, it feels you with reckless pleasure in spending more money than you should for the high that fills you at the sight of all the shiny new purchases!

And then the slump when 'buyer's remorse' sets in, lol.

I solemnly vow to never slight you again.

Oh, good, I have that in writing- WILL HOLD YOU TO THIS. :P

Thanks for answering all my Lost questions. That covers everything I had so far, you're such a good resource, darling! *squishes*

Remember the light that Jack turned on the series finale? If that light goes out, the world ends.

Yeah, that light made no sense, why did it kill whoever used it? I didn't get that- shove in the cork thingy/yank it out and back the hell away= NOT DYING.

The light confused me so much. And how did Jack turn it on, didn't he just put the block back in place? *confuzzled again*

Locke decided to see what happened if they didn't press the button, and it blew up. So no more button pressing!

But if the world ended when the button wasn't pressed and then the hatch exploded, SHOULDN'T THE WORLD HAVE GONE KABLOOEY?

Or was it a gigantic fake-out? So lame, if so.

Yeah, 'limbo', good word. *glares at parents* They had to be difficult about it, ack.

Oh, yeah, schmaltz, bleurgh. Hate that. I mean, I like that CM is more positive and upbeat than you'd expect given the fact that it's about serial killers torturing and killing people ,but that was just too much syrupy gooey-ness there.

'So, we're just going to act like this never happened. Nothing to see here, folks...Everyone, admire the pretty fusion shot!'

Love that! It was about 5 seconds of amazing H/P subtext.

Hee, thanks for laughing along with me, I'm glad I didn't come off like a weirdo, lol, but it was too funny to resist. ^_^
