Things fall apart. In case you guys were wondering where I was [*squishes woodchoc_magnum*], I've been trying to put the pieces of my life back together. It's been emotionally exhausting but creepily okay in the end. The worst happened and it didn't. I'm ten kinds of confused right now.

Honesty is the best policy, but insanity is a better defense... )


New ship: Sylar/Claire. *headdesk* How is it that my ships become more and more- er, dubious as time passes on? And the chicks remain relatively pure and moralistic and straight-forward [okay, so Hermione scarred a girl for life, that's terrible but I blame it on JKR's shoddy characterization], while the guys are...hmm. From Snape's 'technically a good guy but quite cruel and nasty' to Jareth's 'I steal children and make you go on perilous quests to retrieve them' to Sylar's, um...'I kill people. For fun'. Yeahhh...

Plus, with the first two ships, if you were so inclined, the characters could get together without too much dilemma [what's the stigma of a former teacher/student relationship or centuries-long age difference compared with dating a serial killer?] But with Sylar and Claire, you can't really see these two hooking up without either serious character tweaking or dub-con. Which really rules this pairing, like, 90% of the fics I've come across involve dub-con. So wrong...but I can't help it, these two fascinate me too much. Taking the kink of characters who hate each other a little too far, methinks...*eyeroll*

LotS spoiler woe


I am enraged! *snarls* )

PS. How old is Kahlan? I’ve been wondering. All this talk lately of how I enjoy don’t mind a good age difference…but it only works with younger female/older male couples. I’m not a fan of older women with younger men. Not that I have anything against it [I like Demi and Ashton] but I don’t ship it.

So, Richard’s about 20-23...‘What have you been doing the last 20 years?’ Kahlan asks despairingly of Zedd. And Darken Rahl is all, ‘For 23 years, I’ve slept peacefully…’ before his blissful dreams were rent by the resurfacing of the Seeker. Do we know how old Kahlan is?

Alice in Wonderland!

The reviews have been lukewarm at best, but I was psyched up for it.

'Have I gone mad?/I'm afraid so. You're entirely bonkers. But I'll tell you a secret. All the best people are...' )


I watched a few of Mia Wasikowska’s eps from In Treatment this week. She’s a really talented actress [sooo much better in this than Alice, I gotta say]. The whole ep is structured around two characters sitting in a room...just talking. No special effects, not even that much music, no real action...and it’s still utterly compelling. She gripped my attention from the first moment she stalked into the room and flung herself down on the couch, and I couldn’t stop watching her. She’s just so expressive and really something amazing to watch in action.

Oh, and you come across fandom in the most random places! In one of her sessions, Sophie brought in her diary to shed light on herself as a kid. ‘Dear Hermione,’ she reads, explaining, ‘I pretended that I was writing to Hermione Granger...’ :D Just like me with Xena! Oh, yeah, I totally used to make-believe that Xena was my friend...

Sesson Snippet )


Who’s giving the new Doctor Who a chance? I gotta say, I’m less than impressed. I fell for Nine, in all his angsty neurotic glory...

I know Ten was a ball and just so much fun, but what can I say, the broody, damaged types do it for me. :P *luffs Nine*

And now we have Eleven…who looks like a schoolboy, I mean, really? Barely looks like he's out of his teens, he so cannot carry off that suit without looking like a kid playing dress-up. Still, his side-kick’s gorgeous. I’m so tempted just for the eye-candy, but…I have this ridiculous tendency to get emotionally invested without my say-so and I’ve danced this number too often to risk my heart when I know it ain’t gonna have a happy ending. I hate the 'revolving door' cast for this series and I don't know if it's worth it to watch in case I get attached and then weep buckets when they get swapped out for a new pair.

Oh, I don’t knoooow. *vacillates*

Make my mind up for me?

Ugh, I'm so bitter about not getting to go to the most recent con, but this pic with Christopher Heyerdahl was the highlight of last year.

Best moment of my life )

The Iron King

'That he caved to your demands suggests he may be spending too much time with mortals, learning their ways and capricious emotions. It is time he remembers how to be fey.'

I swallowed, 'But what about Ethan?'

'I know not.'

The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker

Darkness was behind. In the sunlight ahead, out on the rocks, a figure reached toward her in anguish.

“No.” She shook her head. “Don’t take me just yet; give me one more hour…”

“Your time has come, love,” said the eerie man and his cold hand seized her shoulder to lead her into the darkness.



So funny! This dude's impersonation of Alan Rickman is just spot on and hilarious. *gigglefit* ^_^

I just read that Michael C Hall and Jennifer Carpenter of Dexter are married. LOLWHUT? Random. I mean, congratulations, but I get freaked out that actors who play siblings have hooked up because wow. Weird. It's like finding out Peter and Claire were related after semi-sorta shipping them and having to give that up [ I know there is a thriving community of Paire shippers, but I can't do incest], but the chemistry was real because, hello, Hayden and Milo got together.

I know it's not really the same, because in Heroes, they are really blood related but they never met before and there was this attraction at first [from a shipper's POV anyway], whereas in Dexter, they're not genetically siblings but were raised together as brother and sister. I gotta wonder if there's fic on Dexter and Deb now. O.o

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

In October I helped [ profile] sapphs hide a body (-173 points). In April I gave [ profile] odakota_rose a kidney (1000 points). Last week I committed genocide... Sorry about that, [ profile] mcgarrygirl78 (-5000 points). In July I saved a busload of nuns in Angola (326 points). Last Wednesday I helped [ profile] alyssa22 see the light (8 points).

Overall, I've been naughty (-3839 points). For Christmas I deserve a spanking!


Write your letter to Santa! Enter your LJ username:

Heh. I love that saving ONE life is worth a thousand points but committing genocide? Only merits a deduction of 5000 points. It's like they say, one death is a tragedy, a thousand deaths are a statistic. O.o Or maybe that odakota_rose is nearly as valuable as an entire race! There's a more positive outlook!

Speaking of naughty and nice, I'm kinda in love with Sylar now. Yep. I've gone to the dark side. He and Elle are just too deliciously evil to resist.

And with Hiro and Matt and the other dumbass 'heroes' screwing up and making things worse all the time, it's actually easier to root for the bad guys. The only good guy I like is Ando and he doesn't even have a power! *pouts* Although I admit, I've been out of circulation for a while, maybe he's picked up one in the new eps, that would be cool. But from what I've seen of the new season, a few people are missing. Wtf happened to the new characters from last season? The black chick- Monica? With the ability I want, being able to do anything after watching it once. *glees*

And speaking of's almost embarrassing to admit that in ep 10, I kinda liked Riley. For one brief glorious shining moment, she was almost cool. OMFG, NO, REALLY, I DIDN'T HATE HER! )

Of course by the next ep, she slid back into her stupid immature brain-dead ways once more. It was too much to hope for a better ending. Gah. Dude, she and John are totally made for each other. I just pity the future of humanity. *headdesks*
