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
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* nicole_anell
*cough*) so, over the next few
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.
