dragojustine: (Bad book review)
1. My favorite reviewer, Abigail Nussbaum, does a (as always) brilliant and articulate post-mortem of the utter train wreck that was Battlestar Galactica (Wait. How unpopular is this fannish opinion? Am I going to be shunned now?)

2. This is a really beautiful specimen of humanity. (Also, my love of black and white pictures of beautiful people seems to be getting worse, not better.)

3. I am not even sure if I really consider myself a member of SPN fandom anymore, but the con reports coming out of LA make me ridiculously happy. It's not even that our boys are so doing it, it's how much they absolutely love feeding the fangirls. "Jared and I had our own wrap party last night... That's why I'm having a hard time moving around this morning." *dies* They are so good to us!

4. I had a horrible allergic reaction to something today. The skin of my face is completely covered in hives. I'm all bright red and blotchy and bubbly and scaly. The skin on my eyelids has the same texture as a particularly unpleasant lizard. I'm bumpy and peely and itchy from my hairline to my jaw. I have no idea what triggered it or what to do, so I am mostly sitting around slathering my face with plain, unscented Cetaphil and trying (failing) not to pick at it. I am, as you can imagine, extraordinarily attractive.

Fannish round-up

Pushing Daisies: This show is made of a sparkling black-humor gemstone in a 24-carat genius-plated absurdity setting and hung on a necklace of shiny.

Dexter: This season of Dexter is FREAKING ME THE FUCK OUT. )

Chuck: I will not believe for one minute that Adam Baldwin doesn't know damn well what he's doing )

SGA: SGA fills me flailing, wild, flappy-handed, dolphin-pitched squee. )

Supernatural: Wherein I catch up on like three episodes. )

Do I have anything to say about SPN that everybody on my flist hasn't already said? *thinks* No? Okay, then. OMG SPOILER ALERT: The boys are pretty! Yaay pretty boys!

Yuletide: I got my assignment, and it's like it was custom-tailored for me. SERIOUSLY. Something I never would have written on my own impetus, but the minute I saw the details I was all "OMG I WANT TO WRITE THIS SO BADLY IT WILL BE AWESOME!" I'm torrenting the fandom now, and I have, you know, a season to watch and RESEARCH to do and NOTES to take. *cracks knuckles*

Life round-up
Short version: Lonely, depressed, broke, not wanting to talk about it. I think major changes need to be made, but I don't know what they are yet and I think I am going to be skating through Christmas on my savings. Just... it all seems pretty insurmountable. That's all.
dragojustine: (television)
Oh GOD. My life EXPLODED. I wanted to do so much writing and I can't and I wanted to do so much reading and I've had no time and I kind of HATE being this busy. I sort of fell into bed Saturday night, then got up and watched like four straight hours of TV today, because I am FRIED.

A big fat new season TV roundup )

So my TV lineup right now looks like: Wildly fannish about SGA and SPN. Likes Chuck, Pushing Daisies, and Dexter. Giving Sanctuary a chance. Watching Eureka every once in a while, when I have time. Sounds crazy, but the vast majority of those are short seasons and/or early seasons, and will be over by December (early January, in the case of Atlantis. Only Supernatural will go to spring).

SPN 4x03, in which my sentence structure deteriorates to Palin-esque levels from pure joy )

I may or may not have spent 45 minutes assembling a timeline for the 4x03 AU fic of Doom. There is NO WAY I would have time to write that and get it betad before next Thursday... but is there anybody who COULD beta it on Wednesday, if I do get it written?
dragojustine: (Squee)
I found a debate watch group to watch with last night. Yaay social interaction! With pretty Obama-voting boys. Also? I want that man to be president SO BADLY. Mental agility, clear intelligence, superb verbal skills, critical thinking, generosity and respect combined with firm and well-articulated differences of opinion grounded in fact! It's like night and day from Bush. I WANT this man to be president.

mild SPN 4x02 spoilers, short )

SGA 5x10 spoilers )

And, in conclusion: Daniel Jackson, I am so hot for you.
dragojustine: (Smug face)
Things Wot are making me ridiculously happy recently:

SPN (Kind of meta babblings. With 4x01 spoilers) )

SGA 5x09 )

The first issue of the OTW's academic journal. Good stuff there, especially the bit about Star Trek vidding- fascinating.

Life things making me happy )
dragojustine: (Squee)
Wow. Apparently babbling about cooking and domesticity really hits hot buttons on my flist. Kind of like my office supplies lust, I am like, "who knew?" I keep writing these things and then I end up feeling much less alone. General hugs at y'all.

The stunning [livejournal.com profile] eighth_horizon wrote The gayest gen story ever. It's glorious (SPN, NOT Sam/Dean).

TOMORROW. TOMORROW MY SHOW COMES BACK. I could capslock forever. All squee here is redundant. I won't actually get to see it till Friday, but still. I just rewatched the Dean-on-Dean scene in Dream a Little Dream of Me. Oh, Dean. *flails*

I just read the casting descriptions for SGU. I could die laughing. Those really could be fantastic characters in a fantastic show-- there's a shitload of potential there, and with SGA fans moving over I assume the fic will be good-- but obviously the actual show won't be any good. Plus, have you noticed all the emphasis on how beautiful everybody is? Just once, I would like to see a set of character descriptions of perfectly average-looking people.

Remember, writers: If the character is good enough, and the acting is good enough, people will eroticize him anyway. Just look at Rodney McKay!
dragojustine: (Sam/Dean)
The Truest Type of Love
SPN Sam/Dean
2800 words
Incest warning. Obviously. No other particular warnings, but this is not fluffy.
AN: For [livejournal.com profile] spn_nostalgia, prompt: Sam gets Dean back for the buttslap in Bugs. I think this prompt was probably asking for cute prank-warfare stuff, but I... didn't write it that way. Sorry.

He had to stop this thing in its tracks now, before it ruined everything again. )
dragojustine: (make porn)
*Just watched "Birthright" (7x10) for the first time. My "I love Teal'c, but just cannot eroticize him" problem, it is GONE. That man looks like an utterly amazing kisser. Christopher Judge's lips + Jolene Blalock's lips = hot beyond the telling of it.

*Every time I watch SG1, I am stunned anew by how sexy Michael Shanks is, and by Jack and Daniel's fantastic comic timing and subtle eye-contact/eyebrow plays off each other.

*[livejournal.com profile] jd_junkie wrote me "Jack and Daniel watch Wormhole X-treme together." And lo, it is adorable.

*There is a very good discussion on writing smut going on here. I disagree on one point, but not drastically. The real thing to come out of this, though, was my realization that I really WANT to write het porn, and have just been stopped by The Terminology Problem. If anybody has solutions to The Terminology Problem, I would love to hear them. *sigh*

*I am continuing to delay my [livejournal.com profile] spn_nostalgia commitment. Apparently, I am not as good at being polyfannish as I thought. FAIL. The more I try to write Sam/Dean, the more Jack/Daniel bunnies assault me. I have come up with FIVE I could write right now, in just the last hour, while getting not even a paragraph of Sam/Dean done with.
dragojustine: (Reading is sexy)
I've spent something like 12 hours in the car over the past four days, which explains all the tl;dr.

First, recs: )

I just reccd gen and femslash. Hold me.

I didn't feel the need to say anything about Whispers )

But, while we're rambling about the women in Whispers... )

Sometimes I really like writing Not!Fic like that. It's a whole lot easier than actual fic.
dragojustine: (Clever)
I kind of adore character meta that comes from different ways of organizing/categorizing characters, by whatever psychological classification you use. I could eat that type of meta up with a spoon.

Take, for example, Harry Potter Hogwarts houses - Torchwood, Dr Who, SPN, SGA, SG1 )

Or Myers-Briggs, for instance )

But I just read another categorization framework I found interesting )

So let's apply it to Jack and Daniel )

Why I find this interesting: )

Jesus, I will SHUT UP now.
dragojustine: (crazy fangirl)
I am so freakin sad about the cancellation of SGA. I mean, I will miss those characters! But then again, SGA is pretty much the epitome of a "fic is better than the show" fandom, and I almost like SGA better the less of it I watch, so, you know...

Vid stuff, from VVC con reports I've seen )
dragojustine: (dean smile)
I just realized I never posted this. Probably won't send it to coms, but I wrote wrote it out and might a well stick it up here. As many of you know, they played the first five minutes of the season 4 premier...

From Comic-con: MASSIVE MASSIVE SPN spoilers )
dragojustine: (plot bunnies)
Remember when the family business was saving people and hunting things? When they had to find Dad? When Sam had these dreams that sometimes came true? When a job was a simple salt'n'burn and hell was just a curse word? Don't you miss that?

Prompt claiming is open for [profile] spn_nostalgia . Get back that uncomplicated Season 1 squee, just in time for the new season! Posting will be staggered from August 1st till Season 4 premier-eve. So. Go! Claim! Write!

My two awesome prompts haven't been claimed yet (it seems that I can't tell you what they are. Pity). I am going to have prompt-performance-anxiety if no one wants them...

I claimed one, because I just looked back over the last two months of this journal and realized there was NO SPN AT ALL. I am stunned people aren't defriending me left and right. And I miss my boys.

There's one prompt I really want to write, but the prompter wanted gen, and I'm completely incapable of writing gen fic about Sam and Dean. I can do it about John. And I can write SGA gen (I even did it once!). I think I could write SG1 gen, if for some insane reason I *wanted* to. Torchwood gen... dear god. Is such a thing even possible? I mean, maybe the crack where Jack runs into some alien substance that completely neuters him, zaps his sex drive into nothing- except even that wouldn't be gen, because there would have to be adorably frustrated Ianto and nearly pornographic cuddling...

(I just realized I wrote over 10,000 words in June. The most I've ever writen in a month before was 7k last December. And I really want to keep writing this much- it's getting faster and easier all the time. Holy shit.)
dragojustine: (writing)
Obviously, I am going to become one of those writers who will shove their WIPs at anybody who doesn't run away fast enough. I really really miss being in school, when I used to AIM with friends constantly and we would draft papers together and copy-paste paragraphs to each other and talk about our writing endlessly. I don't know anybody like that in fandom now.

These are the things I'm actively writing (as in, they're in my head ALL THE TIME and I'm pretty confident they'll get finished) )

And these are the ones I've started but am not working on right this minute and may or may not happen. )

I just got my goodie from Sweet Charity. It's been a long time coming, because of me moving around all over the damn place and being unreachable by snail-mail for the last two months... but [livejournal.com profile] marinarusalka knitted for me! They're hand-warmer things, like mittens with the tips open, and they're PERFECT. And a really pretty grey color. And SOFT! And, you know, perfect.


Thank you so much!

I am putting off watching SPN. I'm so very conscious of the fact that there's the summer hiatus coming up and I just won't last, and I hate cliffhangers, and... aaah. I'm kind of saving it up, like a squirrel burying nuts.

And now, your regularly scheduled SGA babbling )

I have a crush on Ronon Dex.
dragojustine: (dean smile)
Quick note: Thank you so much, everybody. That whole "outpouring of sympathy" thing really does work wonders.

SPN 3x13 )
dragojustine: (Fun ever stop?)
I babble about Sam/Dean by way of SG1. It works in my head. )

Sam and Dean totally pass the broccoli test, by the way. Sam knows Dean wants broccoli, but he's pissed off that Dean won't just TELL him, and refuses to get it until Dean TALKS to him, and then finally gives up and gets in anyway. Dean, in the meantime, knows Sam wants broccoli, but he gets pie instead because he knows Sam will like that better. Then Sam gets pissed at Dean for not knowing he wanted broccoli, and Dean can't admit that he knew about the broccoli but got the pie instead to try to make Sam happy (because that's completely girly and emo), so he just pretends the pie was for himself anyway. I think that counts as a pass, in its own warped way.
dragojustine: (Jack Harkness)
I just watched seven straight hours of Torchwood. I spent practically the entire time dancing about making noises audible only to dogs. I have NEVER BEEN SO HAPPY. Jack/Ianto is my new greatest OTP of all time. Seriously, I think I love them more than Sirius/Remus (the previous holders of the all-time crown).

Jack/Ianto is my HAPPY PLACE now. I just... I have NO WORDS.

If I start typing, I will keep typing for pages and pages and pages and pages about the joy of this show, so I won't start. And if I list all the Ianto moments I love, I will list EVERY LINE the man has spoken.

But one thing is just cracking me right up:About SPN, spoilery for TW 2x7 )

I would PAY someone SO MUCH to write me that porn. Surely there is someone out there who finds this set-up as hilarious as I do? Somebody? (she says, into the cavernous echo of her non-TW-fans flist)
dragojustine: (Thursday squee)
Before I get to SPN, I really would kind of like people's input on this: I read a fic. It squicked me. Thoughts here. )

It seems that all I have done in this journal for the last three weeks is FLAIL about MY SHOW. This week was is little less flail-y, mostly because of the Big Thing that everybody is talking about, but I did still love it.

Listy! )
