"I hacked history!" has got to be one of Leverage's best lines ever. XD

In other news, I hope this board at [livejournal.com profile] writing_game goes on forever and ever (read: I'd at least like a warning before it closes, kplzthx). My epic plan, it is epic. I ended up switching some prompts around, and not writing Monsters fic for the one I'd planned to, but I'm still having bunnies, so yay. (I would have written more today, but I made the mistake of reading a very intense collarkink fill this afternoon that really stuck with me and ruined me for all my stories until a few minutes ago.)

Now, fic-wise:

1. The MTF!Neal verse-thing (lol idek what it is) unexpectedly grew something approaching a plot tonight while I wasn't paying attention. Not sure whether this is good or bad. I think I'd trade that in to just know her name, but what can ya do. (Besides, I'm hardly one to talk -- I didn't know my own for a solid few months post-social-transition. But then, that annoyed me too, so at least I'm being consistent?)

2. Monsters-verse has developed the levels of angst probably everyone but me saw coming. (Although, really -- even the dog is angsty?! That's just wrong. My head is a scary place sometimes, I tell ya.) Now I need to just, y'know, actually write it down. *nodnod*

2b. Spoilers for my fic 'He Who Fights Monsters'. )

3. If "dialogue-only WC zombie apocafic" sounds like something you'd enjoy, you should know I posted just such a drabble yesterday at writing_game. Turns out it worked better for that prompt than Monsters did. And it makes me laugh. XD

TV stuffs (WH13, Happy Town). )

1. Four hours? In two weeks? TNT, you are too good to me. I love you. Now if you would just hurry up and premiere Dark Blue so I'm no longer in danger of death-by-squee whenever the previews come on, that would be great.

2. I don't consider this a spoiler; cutting just in case. ) :D I can has this Leverage/WC crossover nao plz?! Do want.

Just finished watching yesterday's HT ("Sanctuary"). Wow. Wow wow. How was THAT for a mytharc ep? Geez. My opinon of this show has just skyrocketed. Awesome. Also? I think zip-lining down a cable car is in the top-ten list of coolest things I've ever seen. :D (And for the lulz, the COMICS. I about died. Freaking hilarious.)

Speaking of hilarious: yesterday's WC ("Vital Signs"). Cut for incoherent spoilers. ) THIS EP WINS FOREVER. Mhmm.

Oh, and Leverage was awesome, too. (Had a heck of a time believing that was Luke Perry, but -- yay, Luke Perry! It's been too long since Jeremiah!) The end in particular. <3

ETA: And how could I have forgotten about last weekend's Seeker, "Perdition"? To put it succinctly: My reaction. )

Finally, I am super-excited about tonight's SN, "Song Remains the Same". This Anna stuff is... disquieting..., but the rest of it? *glee* "This is a pivotal Supernatural episode for one big reason that will become obvious as soon as you see it, and in many ways, the final scenes play out a bit like the end of 'Changing Channels'." Yes plz do want. XD

ETA #2: SN spoilers. )

And, off topic, some links:
How freaking cool is this? http://casip.ou.edu/summer_session_galapagos.html Crying shame I have no time or money. And if you haven't already seen it, this, too; how cool is this? U.S. Tax Court Rules in Favor of SRS Deduction. Not that I make enough to pay taxes, but still. :)

So, it's September. The really-long unexpected LJ hiatus was part forced and then part just that I couldn't find the time, but I'm back now! (Hooray! Right? Right?) Now to get on with the really long update.

First, the TV rambling, of course, to make it easier for those who aren't interested to skip it. TV (QL, Mental, Psych, et al) )

Relatedly, I've been all over the place fandom-wise since I got reacquainted with the internets. First, BuddyTV links I've been saving for you guys:
The Five New Shows You Must Watch This Fall
Flash Forward
Lucifer is Coming: How SN Stole Twitter

Oh, and speaking of Supernatural, spoilers, and my thoughts on the s5 premiere, 'Sympathy for the Devil'. )
Moving on...

I was also introduced to these Twilight-series recaps last weekend and they pretty much ate my weekend because they're awesome. The basic point is that she's reading the books so we don't have to, because they're that bad. Heh. And they sure sound it. I mean, Edward twirling part of her engine around in his hands while he gives her that little guilt-trip? Drop it in Criminal Minds and it'd almost be great writing. I don't know how anyone can think he's romantic/a good boyfriend/not a sociopath. *shudder* But so as not to offend, that's all I'll say about that, too. (Oh, except that I woke up the other day with a QL/Twilight bunny in my head. I'll just wait till she makes it through Breaking Dawn and then I'll take a crack at that, because boy would it be an improvement. And Sam roundhouse-kicking Edward wouldn't hurt, either. :))

Finally, in the last two three fandom-related things I think I have to say:
1. I think my new Dexter book is here. Tomorrow the post office opens and I can go get my package. Omgyay.
2. Despite the fact that I don't really like the song and am not completely sold on the ship, this vid (NSFW) is without a doubt the best one in the Dark Blue fandom. Seriously. Watch it. You don't have to have seen the show, and this will make you want to.
3. I am in love with both "Wizard's First Rule" by Terry Goodkind (440ish pages/836, and counting), and the TV series, Legend of the Seeker, that was based off those books. We're talking "watched one episode, found the entire series on Hulu on legendoftheseeker.com (go to the 'full archive' tab), and watched the entire 22-episode first season within the space of two weeks" kinds of love. If you need more encouragement than that to watch it: Craig Horner, who plays the MC, looks like the lovechild of Stuart Townsend and Misha Collins. And there's swordfights. Lots of them. I'm serious, guys. (And you have plenty of time to catch up! Season 2 premieres Nov. 7. Go, go, watch and enjoy!)

Onto other things:
Some news links, some news on how the name change is progressing, and some random. ) Here's the two best vids I've found for LotS, just to give you even more reason to watch and to make sure you don't miss them: one to Breaking Benjamin's "Blow Me Away" and a shippy one to Natalie Merchant's "My Skin".

Okay, that's all. Until next time. Which hopefully will be sooner than, say, NaNo. ;)

ETA: The documentary referred to in this (good) article about a trans British boy is now available on YouTube. Here, if anyone's interested.

ETA 2: Also, risking TMI ).

So, this is going to be a huge update full of everything I haven't got a chance to say, yet, as I think of it. Expect random.
