Various things from the people I found from said friending meme: )

I went back to look over my old, really old archived posts because I thought RP had changed the way I post. My theory was, writing out speech as I do in RP to try and capture the feeling of dialogue for a 'video' or an 'audio' post, has had a knock on effect on the way I post here in my dw. As in, I now default on posting stream of monologue style. With a haphazard approach to punctuation (never my strong suit) -- full stops interchangeable with commas, run on sentences, question marks for rising intonation etc etc. (I haven't got to the point where I write out my occasional stutter, but, but, but...)

Anyway, so that's why I looked back, but then my old posts seem really quite chatty as well and I couldn't tell if there had been a noticeable difference, or if it was just a a matter of me becoming more comfortable in putting my thoughts out there on the internet.

ANYWAY. I got distracted and I found this Heroes macro. GOOD TIMES.

I am questioning my decision to get a plurk ([ profile] nemo_r). It seems to be twitter only sideways?

My tumblr isn't work-safe, mainly thanks to the Hawkeye initiative. This is highly frustrating to me. 

The female lead at work has a tendency to say 'hi-ho' a lot in conversation. Which just makes me think of Veronica and Logan.

I started reading cleanwhiteroom's mathematique again because I've decided it will probably need multiple rereads before I get it, so the WIP thing is actually a positive. That or I'm just going to have to accept I don't understand the physics/maths side of things. It's not the plot that's difficult, it's twisty, but in a good way. It's just when Rush goes off on his mental maths-y physics-y bent and they're talking about zero protocol whatsits... WHOOSH is the sound it makes as it goes over my head. I still highly rec though. REC REC REC.

Also, thanks to reading other fans' journals I will be giving OUAT another go (for the femslash, Regina and Carlyle,) but I'm NGL, a part of me wants to jump around and shout at OUAT fans: SO NOW YOU LOVE ROBERT CARLYLE, WHERE WERE YOU WHEN SGU WAS DYING? WHERE WERE YOOOOOUUUU?

Rewatching SGU with [ profile] theoret. We're up to episode 8 or 9? S1


I also read cleanwhiteroom's mathematique. WIP, so you may want to avoid, except for how cwr is a fucking AMAYZING writer (who also wrote Force over Distance which I recced at [community profile] nemo_recs, well worth a look), so don't avoid, just go and court WIP heartache. You won't regret it.

It's an AU where Young meets Rush when he's doing his crazy Gloria's-just-dead, maths-chevrons-gate, Icarus-project-not-yet-a-reality thing. Also the Lucian Alliance are trying to kidnap Rush and this may or may not be just for his brain.

THERE IS DRAMA. IT IS EPIC. And lots and lots of other Stargate series cameos if that's your thing. Vala is pretty cool.

So, following on from previous Bollywood-ness. I decided I need to catch up on some movies. considering I've seen a grand total of about 5 Bollywood films, this may take a while. I watched Devdas (2002), didn't realise there were multiple versions until after. I'm gonna watch the 1955 one as well if I can bear it. Because, you see... IT'S ALL ABOUT DEVDAS' MANPAIN. To be fair, the title should have tipped me off. But, okay, I'm not expecting much by way of any sort of equality in these movies. Have a tangential explanation: I read someone's post about silly actioners recently in which they were complaining about various fails, and it got me thinking about my 'silly bang bang' category of films, (action, explosions), and how I don't expect anything from them. They serve exactly the purpose stated - fire go boom! So while the various fails register, they don't hurt.

The same thing mostly applies here. Except. This was epic bad, guys. I know it's a famous story, plus it's basically a retelling of Krishna/Radha and so I feel bad knocking it. But, but... THE MANPAIN OMFG. He fucks up his relationship with Paro thanks to his indecision and cowardice, and then he proceeds to DRINK HIMSELF TO DEATH. That's it, literally. The only other thing he manages to do is verbally abuse Chandramukhi into falling in love with him (yeah IDK either.) Plus there's the whole scarring Paro by hitting her in the face with a necklace in order to show his love.

I mean, all the various fails: the marriage focus, the evul in-laws, the getting locked in her house by her husband. All that is pretty much par for the course, but, egad the manpain. There's all the stuff the women do: Paro has to be the step-mother in this new family and deal with a husband in love with his dead wife. Chandramukhi is a whore as Devdas so likes to remind her, she has to be savvy and clever and fight off EVIL MOUSTACHE's amorous overtures. BUT NO INSTEAD OF FOCUSING ON THAT, WE FOCUS ON DEVDAS ROLLING AROUND THE PLACE DRINKING AND AND MAINPAINING HIS WAY THROUGH HIS USELESS LIFE.

Basically I just want fic where Paro and Chandramukhi elope and live in sin together. IS THAT SO MUCH TO ASK?

Anyway, on a more shallow note Shakrukh Khan's nose was as large as ever, eyebrows were as awesome as ever, and Ashwarya Rai and Madhuri Dixit are both stupidly gorgeous. Dola Re Dola was my favourite song/dance scene, even if it does fail the Bechdel test (what am I saying? The entire movie fails it). IT SHOWCASES THE FEMSLASH POTENTIAL THOUGH. Also it features bonus creepy moustache being creepy. He goes on to EPIC REVEAL Chandramukhi as a whore in the next scene.

If I were to do an 'official' SGU rewatch, would anyone be interested? I could plug it not just at [ profile] young_rush but at one of the general sgu comms as well. How regular are rewatches usually? One ep a day? Plus there's the question of timezones. Also there needs to be some sort of liveblogging element. AIM would be easiest for me since I already have it, but maybe ljchat would be an easier option for everyone else? How does ljchat even work? Anyone used it before?

Watched that dancing movie with Robert Carlyle in -- 'Marilyn Hodgekiss something something ballroom dancing'

It's was sort of absurd and funny at times, but it had bits that made me wince with embarrassment squick, and other bits that were yawn soppy. I think the main problem was the script. The movie storyline, the ideas and all that, were random and amusing enough that the meandering-ness wasn't a problem. But the dialogue was just bad. I kinda want to write a Young/Rush AU based on it though.

It also made me want to finish watching SGU like burning. OH RUSH. I LOVE YOUR FACE.


Watched Alice (Tim Burton's one) with the students. Didn't dislike it as much as the first time round, though I still think the ending is absurd. Again got hit with the Hatter/Alice 'ship, optional Cheshire extra. They were so threesoming it up. My God.

I'm writing DwtC very, very slowly. But I am writing. I'll be glad when it's over, gotta say. I need to kick the whole formal speaking thing it's got me doing (Esca! Use a fucking contraction for the love of God.)

Have a snippet like SGU thing instead:

Wooh SGU! Except I haven't actually seen the finale, and still have half a season to catch up on (SO DON'T SPOIL ME OMG). But still, SOLIDARITY! FANDOM LOVE! NEVAR FORGET etc. etc.

I know I've been all quiet on the SGU front for months now, but that's irrelevant. THE LOVE IS STILL STRONG IN ME. TRUFAX.

SGU! First time being in a fandom. First time de-lurking. First time modding a comm. First time seriously writing fic. First time seriously creating fanwork in general!

The community! The squee! The discussions! The theories! The dissecting of Y/R minutia. (OH BOYS. YOU WERE EPIC.) The ship! The planets! The Ancient tech! The aliens! The military! The civilians! The stupid characters! The awesome characters! The loser characters! The ones I loved! The ones I hated! The ones I ended up changing my mind about! THE EVERYTHING!

SGU, you were the best. And SGU fandom, you are all wonderful, amazing people and I'm so glad to have had a chance to flail and squee with you guys. No matter how shortlived the show. FANDOM WILL LIVE ON.

Also, I seem to have lost the Vancouver press day pic where Carlyle and Ferreira were leaning against each other (where F was wearing that brown cardigan?) So have this instead! And this time Carlyle has made the questionable sartorial choice! Woot!

So I managed to get totally grabbed by Sheppard/Mitchell.

I know, I know, I couldn't go for one of the popular pairings, could I? (Not that it seems to be too small a pairing, not sure if there's such a thing in this fandom. It seems to be a little bit massive.) I am surprised at myself though. Not a hint of antagonism anywhere, look at me ship the friendlies.

I've been terrible at keeping up with my flist lately. I know there's all this awesome I've been missing. But basically since leaving London and coming back home I've been a bit adrift. Hopefully this is now coming to end. I've got an internship application that I'll get the final word on next week. And even if it doesn't come together, I'm applying other places and doing vaguely useful things.

But I am pulling myself slowly up out of this rut I've been in. And I hope that'll transfer over to fandom business as well.

As part of my slow move back to Ubuntu (I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I won't leave you again, it was just a fling, it meant nothing, I swear.) I found this random bit of randomness... ENJOY!

I am sitting outside in the sunshine, because the sunshine is AWESOME!

It does mean I'm squinting terribly at the screen since I have no sunglasses, and with the reflections and everything I can barely see, but WHO CARES? SUNSHINE. Clearly the weather knew my exams were over and decided to ease my PAIN of the last few days.

I feel REBORN. I will WRITE, amusingly, about VAMPIRES who cannot enjoy the sunshine.

My legs are so white. It's not until summer that I realise how much colour I lose over winter. I'm this sickly grey colour all over. Earl grey, that's it, I'm the colour of Earl Grey tea.
