The Other 11 Doctors: Genderswapped Doctor Who - Sort of related to my genderswap recs request earlier, though mostly it just makes me sad, especially the reported con audience reaction when Moffat asked about a female Doctor.

Dancing on the Edge has both Goode and Angel Coulby in. WIN. Plus Ejiofor who's pretty awesome. Why do I never know what's happening on TV?

... Wait, I know, it's because I don't have a TV. >_<. I should spend more time on iplayer.

Orwell was better than Huxley or Hemingway and why do we read the classics anyway. - Essay comparing Orwell with the both of them and how his visions of the future were more honest. Albeit not necessarily more correct.

Got my cousins hooked on BSG, sent them some fic recs (only three. I have NOT read enough BSG fic.) And then vid recs, and OH GOD. THESE THREE CHARACTER STUDIES.

FFFFF. I AM CRYING. UGLY. UGLY TEARS.

Glittering Cloud by TxlSplash:
BECAUSE BOOMER IS SO FUCKING TRAGIC. MAKE IT STOP.

Jolene by nicole_anelle:
BECAUSE I DON'T EVEN LIKE CALLY AND THIS STILL MAKES ME SADFACE.

Wicked Game by obsessive24:
BECAUSE DEE. FUCKING DEE AND FUCKING EVERYONE AND BILLY AND HER LOVES AND EARTH AND LIFE IS JUST NOT FAIR AND NOW I'M CRYING.

I do not hate the new lj Friends page (or 'Feed' as it has been renamed.) It looks kinda like a tumblr dashboard and the standard text size is larger than the old Friends page standard text size for my layout. (I have eyesight issues.) How is this not a good thing? It's blue and white and otherwise uninteresting. People freak over the strangest things.



Reading fic with characters who are teachers. Instead of criticising the writing elements (OOCness or showing/telling etc,) I'm finding fault in their teaching style. (What? No. STOP OVER-EXPLAINING THINGS, MY GOD. JUST SHUT UP AND TEACH THEM.)

This teaching lark has clearly gone too far.



The whole, using song lyrics for fic titles thing? Is it me or is it on the rise? And, I'm not exactly complaining, because that'd be terribly hypocritical since I am guilty of doing it myself. And also I do understand both hearing a song that perfectly sums up your fic, and the awful flail for a title after writing which ends with you grabbing the next words you hear.

But. Man. I have so many random songs stuck in my head now. Jeez. Can we go for the more obscure, less catchy ones? Or at least, no more Goddamn Florence and the Machine. I like 'em, I do, but enough is enough.



I'm sort of all over the place with tv. I'm also running about a week behind what's currently aired. Mostly though I just hate everything? Not hate with a fire of a thousand suns, but just. I throw my hands up in despair. Nothing seems to be going the way of awesome. Everything is mediocre.

nothing particularly spoilery, but just in case... )



I didn't actually intend this post to be such a downer, so have some random amusing things to finish off with:


Forbidden Familiars: THIS IS SO BAD, NO SERIOUSLY. SO BAD.

Like, I'm inclined to believe it's a joke? It's every awful thing fanfic can ever be all in one fic. IDK. It takes skills to get that amount of awful in one fic. Bad fic just makes you click away, but this level of badfic. You can't help yourself, it's a slo-mo traincrash or something. IDK. It's just SO AWFUL I CAN'T EVEN EXPLAIN. SO SO WRONG. AND AWFUL AND I WAS LAUGHING SO FUCKING HARD MAYBE THERE'S SOMETHING WRONG WITH ME.

(Also, insanely NSFW.)

Dark Angel - Jensen Ackles has been on my mind...

I'm one of those hardcore Max/Alec shippers. I first saw the DA re-runs of S2 on the TV when I was younger (oh Channel Five, you were so crap awesome) and so, when I went and d/led it and re-watched properly, I enjoyed S1, but I already knew the mmmalec was on his way. So I was biased. I was an Alec/Max shipper before Alec even appeared on screen.

I've never hated Max (I can't deal with hardcore Max-bashing in fics) but Alec was certainly my favourite character. I was just reading stuff about how Weatherly fucked up the show and was, basically, an evil, self-important wanker - so all that anti-Logan fanfic is kinda justified - and how the writers would have liked S3 to play out, if Cameron, and Weatherly/Alba hadn't screwed up... (Alec/Max with Logan becoming a blood-junkie.) Though I'll admit I don't really like hardcore Logan-bashing either. CAN'T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG?

It does amuse me that the two most jarring bits in terms of Alec and Logan - the pool game and the bit where Logan has to 'save' Alec from the Familiar crack team - Weatherly insisted on putting them in. IDIOT.

ANWYAY apparently Ackles is a darling, \o/ I tend to associate him with Dean nowadays, who in my mind is a lamer version of Alec (come on, you know it's true) and clearly this is unfair to him. ASHverse!Alec, all the way. (The ASHverse being this awesome - unfortunately abandoned - epic long DA fic. Best shit ever, I kid you not.)

ANYWAY. I had a point here somewhere...

No, maybe I didn't.

I was thinking about genetically engineered supersoldiers you see, due to playing F.E.A.R on A's computer, and then I had a craving for fic about genetically engineered supersoldiers... and DA is my only genetically engineered supersoldier fandom... unless you count Cylons.

BSG has kind of eaten my mind recently. I've finally managed to persuade the family to watch and we're all talking about stuff.

"YOU CYLON" has become the insult du jour. Anyway, this has resulted in a lot of meta thoughts about BSG and a stalking of BSG fan's journals (*cough* [livejournal.com profile] nicole_anell *cough*) so, over the next few days weeks I'll try to get coherent and post on that. For now, have some rambling thoughts:

Spoilers for all seasons... )

ETA: Apparently this layout doesn't make hyperlinks obvious, I'm not sure if this is due to my fiddling, or if it's meant to be like that, so I've gone back and bolded the links in the last few entries as a temporary measure.

HAH. So my lj is no longer SFW thanks to my new header. Actually the one with normal colours, instead of inverted, is even more explicit, but the inverting seems to make it less O_o. Or maybe that's just me.

IDK

I haven't even seen the movie. Is it out? I was just getting sick of having to wait years for TJ's bloody face to load. I think I'm gonna try and stick to smaller, less 'graphics heavy' headers from now on.

So considering the header it seems apt to post this now. It's another rambling meta thing:

Here's some more banner/blends/random that I'm not sure what to do with.

So this was going to be a fic about how Gaeta dies and wakes up in Farscape and there was going to be cleverness of the tying his singing into the fic variety. Only I never got further than these two paragraphs, so...

Maybe I will revisit it one day. The idea of Gaeta/Braca crossover does fill me with an inordinate amount of glee.


Gaeta, in Farscape, working for the Peacekeepers/Scorpius:


There was a song for this... )

Many many recs, I was bedridden and sick and went a bit crazy, here are the fruits of my 'labour'

enjoy )

I'll try to give a bit more info with the recs: ships, warnings, fic status, but better to read the author's notes as well, just to be sure.
