Time for another happypost.

Dan Radcliffe fesses up to the truth.

Brian: ...Then you turned around.. and you smiled.. and that's when I knew why Debbie calls you sunshine. (QAF, season 2)
No one can ever tell me he hadn't already loved him from the end of season one.  With poetry like this...he never *needed* to say the words.

Phelps Twins
Just cause

This Post.

Bill/Harry! (DH1 spoilers!)

I may be a diehard Arthur/Merlin shipper now, but this post makes me tear up.

This series of pictures still (Merlin season 3 finale spoilers) (And OMG, look in Arthur's hand... *sighs*)

Query:

Do the QAF folks on my flist know if there is a timeline of the show out there?

Post-of-the-Day

Movie Meme:
06 - Favorite made for TV movie

So many possibilities: V, BBC's Pride and Prejudice (Colin Firth FTW!), Angels in America, And the Band Played On...

But I think I'll go with Tales from the City.  It's really pretty amazing the first film ever got made, let alone aired.  Gay subjects, talk of pot, a transgendered character, and even scenes with two men in bed together.  On PBS.  Of course, they quickly decided they couldn't afford to do others, because too many companies threatened to yank their funding if they did the sequels.  So Showtime took over.  And they lost the original Mouse and the original Mona, both of whom I thought were excellent.   Such a great cast.  Laura Linney, Olympia Dukakis, Bill Campbell, and one of my all-time favorite actresses, Chloe Webb, who is an absolutely incredible actress.  If you haven't seen it, do check it out.


And, in a completely different vein...  To distract myself, I've been playing Sims again.  Today it's my University crew, which includes Brian Kinney and Justin Taylor in their last year at University.  Today I was randomly scanning the household and found them doing this:

That moment in canon...sort of )

More sims blather, this time with pictures!

So, I thought I'd post pictures of how everyone turned out...  There will be minor slash, behind the cut.

Sims Slash Talk

So, my frustration with Sims 3 is growing daily.  It's really a cruddy program.  And upgrading it only makes it more so.  So I've moved back to Sims 2.

Sims slashy talk behind the cut, and lots of meandering babble in general about the Sims I've made )

That Icon Meme again

Did this in October, but I added a bunch

Make a list of all the characters in your icons. (Although you may have more than one icon of a single character, they only go on the list once.) Alphabetize it. Take the first two people on the list; that's your first pairing. Second two people; second pairing. Etc. Then write your reaction to each pairing (or a snippet of a hypothetical fic featuring each pairing).

Decided to go with snippets this time. And I didn't include real people in this list. Just the people I use in RP as the charcter I use them for.

micro-ficlets behind the cut, with lots of HP, a bit of QAF, Firefly, Stargate, Beatles, and many others included, some mention of character death )

Old fandom meme, revived

Need to do this again.  New journal, things have shifted a bit, so time to re-list my fandoms:

Fandom rambling behind the cut because Elf doesn't know when to shut up )

Have I gone on long enough? :P

Today's Fannish 5

I haven't been interested in these in ages, but I quite like this one:

What are your five favorite canonical friendships?

Harry Potter
  • Sirius, Remus and James.  I'd add Peter, but JK totally screwed him over to make sure that no one would ever like him.
  • Severus and Lily.  Aaaaaw...  :D
  • Harry and Neville, though more movie-canon than book-canon.  I love that Neville actually gets to help him and talk to him in the movies.
  • Severus and Lucius, even though it's never explicitly stated.
  • Albus and Gellert.  A fascinating idea.  I can't wait to see what the fans do with it. :D
Star Trek
  • Geordi and Data.  Not just symbiotic because Geordi was an engineer, but also honestly good friends.  I always loved their jaunts on the holodeck.
  • Ben and Dax.  I have a huge soft spot for Dax, and I always loved this.  How it grew from a male/male friendship to a male/female friendship with only one hint of romance the entire time Jadzia was host.
  • Tom and Harry.  These two were so fun together...  Little kids on a big ship. :D
  • Kathryn and Tuvok.  Everyone needs a Vulcan friend.  To tell them when they're being an idiot
  • Kirk and Spock.  Oh, all right, yes.  It's one of the things I hope this new version gets right.  They were each others' support, and I want them to show it, damn it!
Others
  • Sam and Al, Quantum Leap.  They were really so great together...
  • Knight and Schanke, Forever Knight.  Ditto.  I can't express the number of times Schanke's stupid antics and Nick's reaction made me grin.  And yet, they were still always there for each other.
  • Buffy and Willow, Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  Only the best of friends can get away with calling each other such horrid things and smile about it while they're doing it.  "Quitter."  "Whiner."  "Bailer."  "Harpy."  "Witch."  "Bad seed..." 
  • Cutter and Skywise, Elfquest.  God, I can't believe this wasn't at the top of my list.  These two are so perfect together.  Cutter the brawn and Skywise the brain.  They compliment each other so well...
  • Brian and Michael, Queer as Folk.  I know some prefer the romance between them, but if it had ever happened?  It would have destroyed everything between them.  They were never meant to be anything more than friends.  Though they were excellent at that.  They understood each other almost better than anyone else.  And put up with each other more than most of the others in their lives did.

At the end of it all...

So, last night I finished the final episode of QAF, and all I can say?

Where's the fic?  I'm ready.  I need more.  If you're out there and read/write QAF fic, particularly B/J fic, I'd love to look at it.  (I'm looking at you, [info]annasuede.)  Smut, love, angst, futurefic, whatever you've got.  Please?

List time!

1 - Didn't like [info]hp_fridayfive or [info]fannish5 today, so no entry there...

2 - Huge hugs to [info]littlecup, who had her baby yesterday.

3 - Job news--went to an interview for a temp job today.  I'll be working in the tallest building in Seattle (formerly known as the Columbia Center) on the 34rd floor.  I'm working for a real estate insurance company.  A bit nervous about it, because it could be stressful, but we'll see...  Means I'll be more available during the weekends now.

Mods for [info]hpficlist, I'll still be available in the evenings if there are problems.  But I'll likely take Saturdays or Sundays for my day until this is over.

RP people, particularly those of you outside the states, I'm afraid this means most of my gaming will be in the evening as well, or weekends.  If there's a particular plot you would like to do, just let me know, and we can talk it out in emails at the very least.  I will try to stay active as much as possible.

4 - Speaking of [info]hpficlist, it's been kind of quiet the last few days, but there are lots of links to follow, and I'm about to go add a few more ships I saw that could be added...  Please come check us out?  It won't be much of a resource without links to follow, right?

5 -*whines* I want season 4 of QAF, already!  And Sims: Seasons, too!  Oh, well, at least I'll have job money I can use for it... :D

6 - Still planning on doing a book review, just not sure what and when.  But it is coming.

Let's see...

I have one rec, so I'll save it for a couple of weeks, see if I get more read.

Have been slowly watching my way through Queer as Folk.  Am about halfway through Season 3, and just watched a certain reunion... which made me smile.

So, to come out to my computer and somehow end up feeling the way I do right now makes no sense.  I'm feeling kind of lost and out of sorts.  Pissy and sad, and I don't know where any of it came from.  Anyone want to share a hug?

Have to finish my D_D, but it should only take another page or two, I think.  If it doesn't suck.  Like all my stuff has felt to me, lately. :S

Bleh.  Just go on about your business.  Nothing to see here.  Feel free to ignore me.
