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.

This is technically a fail, considering what I'm doing to my body, but it makes me happy... )

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. ^_^

Shopping stuff )

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 laughed afterwards, but man, I was seething with suppressed anger at the time )

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...!

Snippet of Hilarious Awesome )

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

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.

Awesome alternative credits for Dollhouse by scifi_tv_addict.

OMG. DOLLHOUSE FINALE. OMFG.

MY BRAIN BLEW UP INTO ITTY BITTY BITS AND I AM DAZED AND CONFUSED. WHAT HAPPENED?

One review summed it up as ‘boy, they really didn’t think they were getting renewed, huh?’ Which makes me laugh, because judging by how epically FUBAR that ep was, I’m inclined to agree, the writers probably didn’t think they’d ever have to deal with the fallout.
 

My main reaction, though?  )

“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains…”

I have had Pride and Prejudice and Zombies in my possession for almost a week now and I still haven’t read it yet. I’m just enjoying the cover art and the premise too much right now. I keep brandishing it at people, ‘GUYS, JANE AUSTEN WITH ZOMBIES, ZOMG’ and they ask me how it is, which forces me to admit I haven’t started yet. Which they find odd since I can finish a book in less than a day. But the idea of this book is just so shiny and brilliant that I’m almost afraid to start it in case it doesn’t live up to my expectations…

In the past eight days, I have had:

WTF, there's an NCIS spin-off? Why did nobody tell me about this?! I know CM's been planning one for ages but NCIS snuck theirs up on me! Gotta say, the title's a bit unwieldy. NCISLos Angeles. [Guess 'Las Vegas', 'Miami' and 'New York' are out of contention, lol]. NCIS: LA for short? Bit too many random letters floating around there...

Anyway, is it sad that immediately, I'm like, 'OMG, female boss! Male subordinate! Ship!'


But before I start making up cute ship names and drawing hearts and rainbows all around them, does anyone want to spoil me on the nature of the relationship between Gibbs and Macy? Don't tell me she was yet another one of his affairs back in the day, I will scream- NO, I'M KIDDING, I'LL BEHAVE, JUST TELL MEEEE.

---

Previously, I looked through my [meager *shameface*] Xena collection for a Karl Urban ep.
And once I started capping Deliverer, I got caught up in how much I used to love this show when it was non-slapstick-y and Xena and Gabrielle were intelligent and heroic and so much fun to watch!

Btw? I don't do femslash, but I see subtext.
[Holy crap, do I see subtext. Merlin, anyone? Literally EVERY CHARACTER on that show can be viably cross-shipped with anyone else, it's insane]
Xena/Hercules was my first real ship, and Xena/Ares is made of hawtness [ignoring the squick of him possibly being her father], but the writers threw in hefty doses of Xena/Gab and I'm not going to close my eyes and go 'lalala' like it doesn't exist, 'k? 
So if that offends you, do us both a favor and don't read this.

Brilliant vid of Xena kicking butt. Perfect timing, perfect clips, just...damn, it makes me want to rewatch the show from the beginning!

Meme!
'The problem with livejournal:
We all think that we are so close, but really, we know nothing about each other.
So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me.
Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about.
Ask away. Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you!'

---

Funniest thing I've heard all week. Katherine locates me at my usual spot in the library, on the computer replying to lj comments, she settles down next to me and the first words out of her mouth? Not the customary greeting expected in polite society but:

"Why are you looking at LESBIAN PORN?!"
*everyone in the room stares*
"Um..."

Not what you think...well, maybe... )

*gigglesnorts* It makes my brain explode but I am quite fond of this picture now, since it indirectly led to luxuria_oceanus and me becoming friends to overwhelm odakota_rose with our combined crazy. I don't know what that says about us. *facepalm*

ETA: For those of you who don't know- and it just occurred to me that not everyone's life revolves around TLW- these ladies are the lead actresses from The Lost World.

---

Speaking of lesbians I have a Xena picspam! It began life as a 'hey, the new McCoy looks naggingly familiar' and, as a true child of the Technology Age, I imdb'd him, which led to:

'holy crap, Karl Urban is CAESAR from XENA' )

---

Okay, I don't want to offend anyone, my sincere apologies if I inadvertently hurt your feelings but I have to ask...is it really that bad that Merlin depicts Guinevere of the Arthurian legends as a black maidservant?

Things that make me happy or thankful…

Since this thing apparently has no rhyme or reason, I’m playing around with it a little. My fandoms bring me a lot of joy and pleasure, so I thought I’d take a trip down memory lane and revisit the very first tv character I fangirled. [‘Tv’ is an important distinction- according to my family, Ariel was my first obsession but I was like, 3, so it doesn’t count]

XENA, WARRIOR PRINCESS.

 

 

'In a time of ancient gods, warlords and kings, a land in turmoil cried out for a hero. She was Xena, a mighty princess forged in the heat of battle. The power. The passion. The danger. Her courage will change the world...' )



 ---------------------

In a non-fandom-related topic, I have to say I’m grateful my Psych lecturer allowed me to hand in my essay late. I wasn’t really paying attention to my summer units after the crappiness of second semester exams, and it turned out I had missed out on a compulsory assessment task, without which I automatically failed. I don’t get credit for what I ended up handing in, of course, but it was lucky I was allowed to do it at all and thus ‘stay alive’ in the unit, as he put it. He didn’t have to grant me such mercy, and I really can’t afford to mess up this early, so I’m glad that worked out.
