So. Check this out, guys:



Yep, you guessed it. I have in fact signed up for the Supernatural/J2 Big Bang, having never written any Supernatural or J2 fic before... clearly I fancy a challenge! Well, anyway, hopefully I'll be able to keep people apprised of my progress -- you know, word count and the like. And I imagine I'll have to eventually look around for a beta -- but I don;t want to do that til I know for sure that I will definitely have a story on the way!

I don't really have that much to do at this point in time though, so this will most certainly be something to do, plus I really do want to actually write SPN and J2, so hopefully this Big Bang will kickstart some creative juices...

Watch this space! (Maybe something will actually happen!)

BBC Merlin Fic

So, this is my first story in along while, and my first in this very new fandom; BBC's adaptation of the Arthurian legend, called Merlin. It's definitely not the best thing I've seen by the BBC; in fact, the acting is at times horrendous, the script is frankly childish and full of cliches, historically speaking it's a laugh a minute, but.... there's something about it. It's a very AU setting -- Uther is still alive right now, with Arthur as a fully acknowledged first born son and they live in Camelot. Morgana is Uther's ward, and Guinevere is her maid. Lancelot will be showing up next Saturday, and Merlin is Arthur's new manservant, a post he received as a reward for saving the prince's life. Plus, magic is outlawed and punishable by death -- usually burning at the stake of course.

So, the premise so far is looking good, and the show is definitely fun to watch, despite the bad script and bad acting, and terribly awfully funny special effects. And the opportunities for slash are unbelievable! The subtext is immense! It's almost at Torchwood levels!

So, on to the fic, which I've named in honour of my condition right now, and Merlin's of course! Hope you like...

Oh, and can someone tell me how to copy and paste from Word into a cut using Firefox and Vista? Every time I tried, another window would pop up saying something about how my browser wasn't allowing it or something, and it told me use Ctrl+V to paste whatever I wanted to say into that window, which I did. The only problem was, it didn't paste into the cut! Thanks!

EDIT: Typos corrected! Thank you drjenny88 !

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

YES! YES! YES! It finally happened!!!! The sunset ending!!!! I almost passed out several times throughout the bloody episode, I hyperventilated time after time after time!!!! Typical soap -- there were so many bloody near misses...

I love John Paul, I love Craig, I love love love love McDean!!!!!!!! God, I so love that storyline -- honestly not too terribly keen on the rest of Hollyoaks, though I think I may watch it to see Niall get what he deserves. Horrible horrible man. He tried to kill John Paul! And he actually did kill Kieron!

So, the best John Paul/CRaig episodes are: 16-5-07, the first sober kiss and sex; 27-6-07, the first time Craig tells John Paul he loves him, and completely ignores Sarah's phone call; the series of episodes following their being caught out; 2-9-08, the day Craig comes back; 5-9-08, the day they, ahem, reacquaint themselves with each other; aaaaaaaannnnnd, drumroll please, 19-9-08, the day Craig leaves again..... with John Paul, after kissing him in public, at the train station, in front of a picture of the sunset!!!!!!!!!!! Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SUNSET ENDING!!!!!!!!!!! WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOPPPPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!

Ahhhh. I'm exceedingly happy now.

Last episode of Torchwood

So, I was really looking forward to this weekend: last episode of Torchwood on Friday; Grand National, first episode of Doctor Who, next episode of Nancy, first episode of BSG 2003 in the US on Saturday; the next Grand Prix on Sunday...

Then! Then, Torchwood. I'm writing this with dried tear tracks on my face and a tissue in my lap. Oh God. That was so f**king awful.

Torchwood 2.5 and 2.6

So, belated update on 2.5 -- well, my thoughts on it anyway. So, I liked that we know more about Jack -- his little brother, where he grew up, his parents... but I really hated Adam, as, I suppose, we were meant to. I mean, my God, he tortured Ianto! The poor baby! I was really pissed off in this scene, and then, right in the middle of it, somebody bloody well knocked on the door! I left my housemate watching and went to answer it, only to find my other housemate's bastard of a sort-of/ex-boyfriend on the other side. Needless to say, I was most displeased.

Plus, more Gwen/Jack UST!!! Where the bloody hell did it come from?!!! "Not like I love you" indeed!

The whole cuteness of Owen made up for that a little, and the things Ianto said about Jack as well, although he didn't say he loved him... Hmm, am a little uncertain.

And, 2.6 "Reset" made things much better. After all, Martha irritates me a little, but I infinitely prefer her to Gwen. Thankfully, there wasn't much of Gwen in this episode, and Ianto and Martha had that little interlude about Jack's style in bed! Loved! Although I'm not sure about the fact that they only "dabble", despite the fact that Jack implied that he loved Ianto in "To The Last Man". The storyline itself was pretty good as well -- that poor Mayfly!

But then the writers ahd to go and ruin it ALL by killing Owen. I cried my eyes out! Why do they always have to kill the doctors?!! And it was really drawn out as well -- poor Tosh, poor Jack. Things had just started looking up! They were going on a date!

And the preview for the next episode looks good; looks very sad! But, maybe they'll bring him back? Please?

That is all for now. I'm going to go watch it again and cry some more.

Hey guys!

So I got this meme from

kelleigh

 

1) Pick 15 of your favourite movies.
2) Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
3) Post them here for everyone to guess.
4) Fill in the film title once it's guessed.
5) If you decide to cheat, I guess you'll have to live with your guilty consciences! Dorks. Who cheats on MEMEs?

Okay, wait, I have far too many movies I want to do... 31 so far! 35 now! Le sigh, must cut them down... 32, 29, 27, 26... can't get rid of any more, so I'll just do 26! Good god!

1) I don't want to play the gender card right now. You want to play a card, let's play the "let's not die" card.

2) Draw sounds? Yes, I can draw sounds... and I can speak them back.

3) I just want you to feel you're doing well. I hate for people to die embarrassed.

4) Your men love you. If I knew nothing else about you, that would be enough.

5) We may not have a woodshed on board, but that boy is gonna get a whuppin' anyway!

6) I mean, everlasting life? I imagine it would be kind of lonely. Well, maybe if you had someone to share it with. Someone you loved. Then it might be different.

7) Is it true that there's a point on a man's head where if you shoot it, it will blow up?

8) What who said. The one with the moustache, the one you're married to.

9) Look! I have one job on this lousy ship, it's *stupid*, but I'm gonna do it! Okay?

10) Welcome the rich man, he's hard for you to miss. His butt keeps getting bigger, so there's plenty there to kiss!

11) You pair of deuces lookin' for work, I suggest you get your scrawny asses in here pronto.

12) Cars pick the driver. It's a mystical bond between man and machine.

13) Boy, it sure would be nice if we had some grenades, don't you think?

14) For a second there, I actually thought you were gonna eat me.

15) But I think I speak for all of us when I say that we want nothing to do with anything that's over that hedge.

16) I think you have strength, of a different kind. And one day your father will see it.

17) Whoa, lady, I only speak two languages, English and bad English.

18) Honey, it took me five years to realize you were flirting!

19) Water is powerful. It can wash away earth, put out fire, and even destroy iron.

20) No matter how long it takes, no matter how far, I will find you.

21) Like the weapons of the previous century, we, too, would become obsolete. Pity, because I lived for it.

22) Out of order? FUCK! Even in the future, nothing works!

23) You're wearing that hat? After all the magic I used to make your dress pretty?

24) You know what the dead do with most of their time? They watch the living. Especially in the shower.

25) Well, you gave one man back his life but did you even glance at the others?

26) There's nothing to see. I used to live here, you know.

Okay, so, have a go guys!
