1. Dexter is Delicious came out the other day. I wish I'd known sooner, I'd have preordered it! Oh, well, I fixed that. It'll be coming soon. :)

2. MAINTENANCE RANDOMLY CAME AND FIXED MY A/C. IT IS NOT ARCTIC!COLD IN MY ROOM ANYMORE. Warranted caps are warranted. Several times, I've made soup or popcorn mostly to keep warm, that's how bad it's been. (I'd have contacted Maintenance myself, but I thought I just couldn't work the thermostat. I'm still not sure I can work the thermostat, but IT'S NOT COLD ANYMORE YAY.)

3. Holy shit WC finale. I don't even. *flails*

4a. Well on my way to figuring out the perfect set of fictional cursed artifacts to use in my WC SP bodyswap sequel. Sasha or anyone else who has knowledge of ancient Egypt, want to recommend me a good pharaoh? Or "things you might find in a pyramid"? Or just hear the ideas I'm working with so far and make sure they make sense (in a "there are no polar bears in the Antarctic" kind of way)?

4b. Also made progress related to the artifact for my WH13 transfic. I was all set to have to give up and use the same or a similar artifact for both of these, but this turned out to work out better if it's not even Egyptian (unfortunately; I have a pharaoh all picked out if that changes!), so I guess that's good. (Although I still keep confusing this and the above. *sadface* That's what I get for plotting more than one fic with a similar plot device at a time.) I just have to figure out whose it was and what, exactly, it is. And I know that doesn't sound like a whole lot of progress, but you'll have to trust me that it is. ;)

5. In less happy news, I have so much homework. It is going to be horrible. D: Sigh. (I already had to miss the Psych finale, the Terriers premiere, and two hours of Dark Blue yesterday just for one class worth of homework and because I couldn't find an open TV. And these are projects. School, gtfo my life plz. I've had enough of you.)

ETA: Check out my 80 points worth of WC fic over at writing_game. I do believe that's a new personal best. By over ten points. *bows*

BN, RP, TZ )

Speaking of TV, Is FlashForward Heading to Starz? I certainly hope so. You can always find it online, after all, someone just has to make more first.

And I'd like to take this moment to pimp the Neal Caffrey Is In Your 'Verse Making It Awesome fest (with which I am unaffiliated, but it's fabulous). You can also have this hilarious clip of Matt Bomer on Leno.

Short version: All my shows are awesome and fun. I had to strategize to get all my Tuesday shows in yesterday (watched Degrassi in WC and WH13's timeslot, then Covert Affairs, then the WH13 rerun, then the WC rerun), but it was well worth it.

Long version under the cut. )

Shows, I love you. Keep up the good work.

Part 2 of this post, to include BN, RP, and TZ, coming Friday.

3. Anyone see the supposed trans character on Degrassi tonight? I, uh, must have watched the wrong Degrassi or something. Idek. Halp? ETA: This explains my problem -- TeenNick decided to air the last of s9 first, so they're behind Canada for a few days. Meaning I didn't watch the wrong thing and Adam is coming, I just have to be patient.

4. I'm working on a SN/QL crossover for comment_fic. I'm partway in and I need your help! Question: What do you suppose God would like to say to Sam Beckett? I mean, obviously Sam has questions -- how should I answer them? (Pre-QL-finale, fwiw. But I could be persuaded otherwise by a particularly good suggestion or two.) Seriously, even if you don't know QL at all, you can just suggest God-type conversation topics, they might help. *hopeful*

5. ...Uh, I just wanted a #5. Here, have the WC s1 gag reel.

Still sick (Mom thinks I have strep, arghh), but dude, my shows. YOU GUYS. <3

1. White Collar. Spoilers for 2x1. ) (ETA: I just found out they called this episode "Withdrawal". Fantastic double-meaning title is fantastic.)

2. Covert Affairs. Spoilers for the series premiere. )

Tl;dr: Well done, USA. Now keep it up for Psych, BN, and RP and you will have one happy fan on your hands.

Dangit, they're Jossing SP already (over at whitecollar_tv here; spoilers for Peter and Neal's backgrounds). Sad day. ): I totally almost went that route, too, instead of the GED, but that was so much harder, you have no idea. Sigh.

In other news, this is made of win. From Craigslist, preserved for posterity @ [livejournal.com profile] christinareborn: To the Straight Guy at the Party Last Night. XD

For more lols: I'm Comic Sans, Asshole. And less lols: Presidential Rumors (Bush vs Obama).

Finally, I was randomly browsing my own old posts the other night, and I found a meme I'd like to resurrect and see what happens. Under the cut. )

I also kind of want to do that "list fifteen characters and answer questions about them" meme again; anyone up for that?

P.S.: Gah, now that I came up with that example of "Shawn, 3 & 7", I kind of really want to write it. A lot. Oh noes. 9_9

OK, so I've literally been online all day today (up at 8:15 this morning, online by 9, it's now 7:30pm -- make that 8:30). Now that we've covered how much I Fail At Life, time for some tab closing, because I need to do something productive, and when things get this bad, that counts. Don't judge. *g*

Tab closing, aka random linkage:
Cut for length. )

In other news, have a cool article on Julia Serano and Ben Barres and a lolarious post from lower_tadfield. A+.

Speaking of grades: I ended up with an A (Tech Writing), three B's (Theory of Computation, Principles of Programming, and Numerical Methods), and a C (HCI) for this semester. Deserved an A in Theory, had been hoping for a B in HCI, but not failing Principles makes up for that. Basically. All in all, I'm okay with that. (Mostly. I emailed my Theory prof. We'll see.)

Oh, and lastly, I have been continuing to fail at WdM. Sigh. That's the only reason I'm writing this post -- because I opened my fic notebook, took one look at SP, and literally sighed out loud, slumped over, and had to use this to procrastinate. *sad panda* But as far as [livejournal.com profile] lgbtfest goes, at least I have my Seeker fill to look forward to on the 28th! :D

Pseudo-ETA: Oh, and my class has been going alright. Light-speed, though, geez! Unrelatedly, have some epic win: 65 Million Years With a Creationist.

ETA:
1. Supernatural season 6 spoilers. Huh. I can has s6 nao plz? (And regardless if that's Sam or not, I'm not backing down -- that was, at the very least, not 100% Sam this time. Lucifer and all that blood can't have been good for him, you ask me.)

2. Cute dog rides turtle. :DDDD

3. For 99 years, OED got it wrong. Ha! At least Wikipedia doesn't take a century to figure out when it's screwed up! ;)

Backwards, vague spoilers for Numb3rs 6x16, 'Cause and Effect'. )

Huge spoilers for Medium, 6x16 'How to Beat a Bad Guy' and 6x17 'Allison Rolen Got Married'. )

WC sf ('Out of the Box') spoilers. )

Spoilers for Castle 2x16, 'The Mistress Always Spanks Twice'. )

Anyway, before Castle were the BN finale (hooray for Garret Dillahunt continuing his streak of making an awesome villain in everything I watch), and WC's "Front Man", which: we can has some hurt/comfort already, you guys? Please? Hello, there was 1x13 'Front Man' spoilers ). A+.

Oh, and there was Human Target on Wednesday, too, that I watched, that was as crazy-actiony-awesome as usual (and hey, there should be a BN crossover with that, that would work well. someone get on that!).

And that's it for the relatively recent TV. The Psych finale is conspicuously absent, I know; I'll be watching that rerun tomorrow.

In other news, college and RL stuff. ).

Roy Zimmerman )

Last but not least, I saw this hilarious WC vid to "Skullcrusher Mountain", and in so doing was introduced to Jonathan Coulton. Check him out, he's hilarious, and the songs on that page are free to stream in full. My faves are "Re: Your Brains", "Skullcrusher Mountain", "Code Monkey", and most of the others that I've listened to, but to list them all would rather defeat the purpose of favorites. ;) Enjoy.

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. :)

First: Guys, seriously. Please. I could really use help on this. Anyone! You don't even have to know the fandom. Just... bunnies, please. *puppy dog eyes* I don't want it to die.

Second: Where was the H/C last night, HT? Spoilers. )



Third: Stay awesome, WC. Read more. )

Fourth: Zera's writing me my Christmas present, and I am super excited about like you don't even know. :D It's BN,
FTM!Nate, and I think she could use luck/encouragement, so I'll happily pass along any of that that you want to share. ;)

What the heck is wrong with me, you guys? The Trans Hammer, I has it and I wield it like a crazy person. )

And speaking of weird ideas, I should be posting one or two of them to [livejournal.com profile] whitecollarfic fairly soon (once I remember to bring my new external HD down to the computer lab with me). I’m open to your thoughts on whether I should crosspost this one.

In other news, been watching Human Target. It’s entertaining, but what was up with that second ep (“Rewind”, I believe it was called; with the plane)? Spoilers. )

Have also been, as usual, loving everything else: Castle, Forgotten, Leverage, BH, SN, BN. And just recently caught up on Mentalist and, as mentioned, Flashpoint.

To be more specific about Mentalist: OH. MY. GOD. SHOW. Next Thursday now please?! My main thoughts:
Spoilery, esp for Throwing Fire and Bleeding Heart. )

And, about WC (and SN and BN): YAY IT’S BACK. More specifically about WC: THAT SCENE. OMG YOU GUYS. I think the writers were reading the fic. You know, the one about Neal and his dislocated arm? Yeah. (“They want hurt!Neal? Let’s give them some.”) Hmog. I barely remember a thing in that episode that happened before “Peter, I trust you” because my brain went to its bunk just up and left the premises under the weight of all that AWESOME H/C. Still not enough H/C for my tastes, but my tastes run heavy on the stuff (can you say “non-con”? I may be writing one, *shame*), and at least this means there was canon that ought to inspire fic. Hopefully lots of awesome fic, am I right? :D

Holy crap, this is 800 words of LJ post. I wish I could write fic this long. I suppose that’s about it, anyway. If you have thoughts, or plot bunnies, or whatever… you know where to comment.

The week of doom (last week) has apparently decided to last two weeks. D:
The week before Dead Week can kill. )
BRB DYING. DX

And clearly it takes being overwhelmed with school work to get me to be productive, because I've totally been cleaning and doing laundry and whatnot. And last night instead of more paper I wrote an epic emo poem. And then this last night/this morning -- well, I knew those trans bunnies come in twos, but I was still hoping to not have to fend off FTM!Neal Caffrey quite so soon. On the contrary, I don't think I've had a muse this insistent since Chloe Logan. I haven't written anything yet -- that poem was time-wasting enough as it is -- but hopefully I won't forget it all before Saturday comes and I have a spare second to write it down. Wish me luck with that. (Also, if anyone happens to know or have a good guess as to how old Neal and/or Elizabeth are, I'd appreciate that info thrown my way. I am so bad with ages, you have no idea, lol. And um, apparently no matter what version of Neal I'm writing, Neal and Elizabeth are BFFs. Lol, I don't know either. I just write what they tell me. I blame that fic where they were brother and sister ("brother dearest", and all its prequels and sequels.))

TV (spoiler-free) )

Weird work mystery. )

Finally, my birthday (22! yay?) was not as bad as it started out. Yay for that. Thanks for the wall posts/cards/cake/good thoughts, guys. And even the renditions of "Happy Birthday". ;D Oh, and thanks for the virtual cookie, [livejournal.com profile] obsessed1. Happy holidays to you as well. They can't get here soon enough for my tastes!

Caught up on FF (1x8 and 1x9, both awesome; also, I love Bryce even more now), and SN ("Real Ghostbusters" = beyond win, and "Abdandon All Hope" was just... well. Ow. Not just What Happened That Shall Not Be Named, but the whole thing with Sam and Detroit. *breaks* In happier news, ass-kicking Cas was fantastic!)

WC's "All In" was great, too; no surprise there. I've noticed the bunnies have started perking up for this show, too, for me. (I do, however, blame the liplock pic for the [unrelated] RPF bunny I got an hour ago. Transfic, muses? Are we really sure this is a good idea? I wasn't even sure about it when it was fictional-character transfic. I think, since NCT, the good idea/bad idea distinction has all but lost all meaning.)

Finally, LotS's "Touched". Was awesome. No surprise there, either. This show, seriously. Freaking amazing. Although, since I ship it, I am going to spoil you. )



In other news, yay for Thanksgiving -- the break could have been longer, though! :)

lonetread: (Default)

I love my shows. I don't know how they all manage to be so amazing.

Lie to Me:

LTM (2x6, 2x7); cut for length. )

Castle: Equally great, although the three I finally caught up on (2x7-9) weren't my favorites. (ETA: Tonight's was fantastic, though, wasn't it? I was tearing up a little at the end there.)

White Collar: Show, I love you so much. "The Portrait" was TERRIFIC. I loved the end. <3 God, Neal just keeps getting more and more awesome. The whole thing with Kate broke me, though, omg. ):

Legend of the Seeker: I FREAKING ADORE THIS SHOW. CAPSLOCK DOES NOT EXPRESS HOW AWESOME IT IS. "Broken" really was kind of predictable for the most part -- e.g., the second "You don't want to know" came out of Cara's mouth, I remembered what that guy had said in "Denna" and went "Oh, god" out loud -- and yet, they still managed to make it the kind of awesome you can't look away from. And the parts I didn't see coming. Holy. Freaking. Cow. That is all. Already can't wait till next week!

And, Dexter: Holy crap, the end of "Hungry Man". I thought we'd already gotten our twist for the episode! Didn't see that one coming! Omg. Also, I love this show's writers, too. Awkward and creepy Thanksgiving dinner was awkward and creepy, and more-frequently-than-you'd-expect awkwardandcreepy at the same time! Trinity sure is a scary SOB, isn't he. Damn.

RL and NCT; cut for length. )
Gahhhh. Thank god for Thanksgiving Break. D:
lonetread: (fandom)
Short version: Still awesome.

Long version: God, Neal just keeps getting awesomer and awesomer. Like, exponentially. I thought he'd hit the zenith of Totally Awesome with the phone-jamming in "Threads", but wow, in "Flip of the Coin", he outdid himself. The coffee. The coin. "What's the statute of limitations?"

A++, would lol again.

I love this show.

Oh, and lol @ Garret Dillahunt playing a bad guy again! 4400, LTM, some other things I'm probably forgetting -- and now here. I hope he at least enjoys being typecast so badly. Poor guy.
lonetread: (facepalm)
Procrastinating --> LJ post that is probably going to end up being gigantic. Ah well. At least I'll finally be caught up and I can start getting better about making more smaller posts rather than fewer huge ones. Hopefully.

First, as always: TV.

Cut for Supernatural spoilers. )

Cut for vague FlashForward spoilers. )

Mentalist, after SN, sure had its work cut out for it. It was no contest, in comparison, but still very good even so. Jane is just awesome.

Cut for Legend of the Seeker s2 spoilers. )

Cut for length. )

Aaaaanyway.

NaNo, plus important news for anyone following my progress on NCT. )

Which will be finished once I say two more things. The first: I got two shirts from ThinkGeek and they are awesome. I Never Finish Anyth, which I've wanted for years; and Enough Social Interaction, which is just plain hilarious. :D

The second thing: more links.
