I signed up for GISHWES! At least, I think I did; I had to edit the email and resubmit it, and there's always the possibility I failed the essay portion of the exam. But nothing is being announced until the 18th from what I gather, so we'll see if I managed to do this right.

These two were my favorite of Misha's countdown tweets today:

@mishacollins: Registration closes in 4 hours. i'm afraid, very afraid. A sh*t load of people have signed up. it's going to be mayhem.

@mishacollins: Less than 3 hours to register. This was a bad idea. it'll take hundreds of hours to review submissions. I have a family.

It is killing me that [livejournal.com profile] dc_dystopia's time frame is exactly the same as [livejournal.com profile] jimmybigbang's (the rough drafts are literally due within days of each other) because it hit me that would be the perfect excuse to write the SPN/24 crossover I've been kicking around the past few months.

OR! Or my 2014!Cas-does-drugs-because-Lucifer-keeps-walking-through-his-dreams idea! That would also work! Why does everything cool have to go on at the same time?!?

***

So last night I had a dream where I was watching Human Target (God, I miss my show) where the case wound up taking a decidedly supernatural turn. The team all brainstormed what to when Guerrero walked in, heard the story, said, "I know a guy" and called up Bobby (because Guerrero and Bobby both know everyone.) Bobby sent in Sam and Dean with Cas along for the ride; when they all walked in Guerrero took one look at Cas and said, "Hey bro, been a while," just as cool as you please. Apparently Guerrero had pulled a Gabriel, only instead of an angel pretending to be a trickster he was an angel slumming it as a human assassin.

That was as far as I got before Lexi in all her grace knocked something over and woke me up, and I'm not sure how I feel about my brain coming up with that. On hand, the concept that Guerrero essentially fell for Chance the way Cas fell for Dean amuses me, and I like the image of the two of them sighing over their pain in the ass humans. On the other hand, one of the things I like most about Guerrero is that he has a kid, and I don't even know if vesseled angels can do that. I mean, Jesse Turner being conceived in a demon-possessed body made him the antichrist.

Although the idea that Guerrero's son might be the Second Coming is hilarious.

Back to writing. I will have this [livejournal.com profile] deancas_xmas fic done and in beta shape tonight if it kills me.

I'm behind on the fanfic meme, but hey, let's do this one too!

The one who seduced you, screwed you over, broke your heart in a million pieces, and laughed about it.

Smallville. I was surprised a week or so ago to realize how many ~feelings~ I still have about Smallville. And more accurately, with Smallville it's more like "the one who seduced you then changed into a completely different person but still showed just enough flashes of the one you fell in love with that even though it was completely over when they said 'hey baby, c'mon, give me one last shot, it can be like the old days,' you listen and get your heart stomped on all over again."

Ahem. Like I said. ~feelings~

The old flame you don't see very often any more but whom you still really enjoy getting together with for a few drinks and maybe a pleasant nostalgic romp

Left 4 Dead 2. Nick/Ellis is my happy funtime pairing.

The mysterious dark one whom you used to sit up with talking until 3 AM at weird coffee houses and with whom you were quite smitten until you realized s/he really was fucking crazy.

Watchmen. I've never in my life had such a hard time writing for a canon I loved so passionately.


The one you spent a whole weekend in bed with and who drank up all your liquor and whom you'd still really like to get with again, although you're relieved s/he doesn't actually live in town

Heroes. Someday I'll finish that Five Years Gone Peter/Claude story I've got plotted out somewhere.

The steady

Doctor Who. My forever show, whether or not I'm currently writing fic for it.

The alluring stranger whom you've flirted with at parties but have never gotten really serious with.

B5, Star Trek and Star Wars. I love all those canons but I've rarely felt the urge to write for them or seek out fic, although I'll happily devour anything recced to me (the exception to SW is Thrawn/Pelleaon, but I still haven't actually finished anything for them.) Harry Potter, too.

The one you hang out with and have vague fantasies about maybe having a thing with, but ultimately you're just good buddies

Firefly. Jossverse in general, really.

The one your friends keep introducing you to and who seems like a hell of a cool person except it's never really gone anywhere.

Sherlock? Maybe when I watch that last episode.

The one who's slept with all your friends, and you keep looking at them and thinking, "How the hell did they land all these cool people?"

This is exactly how I felt when SGA took over my flist back in the day.:)

The one who gave you the best damned summer of your life and against whom you measure all other potential partners:

Oh, X-Men fandom. I'm only on LJ in the first place because I followed the comics!fic writers here.

The one you recently met at a party and would like to get to know better:

Oh, Human Target. How our romance was cut tragically short!

The old flame that you wouldn't totally object to hooking up with again for a one night romp if only they'd clean up a bit:

Iron Man movieverse. I honestly don't think I've read or thought about writing fic for Iron Man since the second movie. Maybe when the Avengers movie comes out.

Your hot new flame:

I suppose this would have to be Supernatural? But really, SPN is more, "That fun friend you never really saw that way but who came back from summer break with an awesome new haircut that made you go, "Hey, why not? Could be fun," then a month later you're living in his apartment and you haven't left the house in days and even though you know it's going to end in tears you're having so much fun you don't care."

The one who stole your significant other:

...Can I say Smallville again? I feel like the later seasons did that to the show I loved.

It's that time of year again!

Photobucket

That's right! It's May! That beautiful time of year when Fox takes time out of its busy schedule to remind us that we can't have nice things!

Here's the list of the dead so far:

Breaking In
The Chicago Code
The Good Guys
Human Target
Lie To Me
Lone Star
Running Wilde
Traffic Light


I am flames on the side of my face angry about Human Target. First Fox retools my awesome little show, complete with installing a new showrunner, totally redesigning the sets, dropping the previous season's myth arc and adding two new characters in the same episode to what had been a three person cast, then after all that they cancel it just when the show was finding its feet again?

Fuck yoooooooooooou, Fox.

I was skipping [livejournal.com profile] apocalyptothon this year, but now I'm reconsidering so I can prompt the hell out of Human Target. Guerrero, Chance and Winston at the end of the world would be a blast.

(thanks to [livejournal.com profile] tzikeh for the lolFox)

And on the subject of fic, I'm officially at that point where I hate every word of this thing and wish I'd set it in a less fraught section of canon. (This happens with just about every story I write. Well, not the fraught canon thing, but let me sit on a fic and I eventually feel like every word is self-indulgent drivel.)

I'll post to the kink meme tonight (all kajillion parts of this thing.) Hopefully someone won't hate it.

***

On the subject of self-indulgence, if I finish the second story of my kink meme project tonight, and I should, I plan on posting an incredibly self-indulgent poll. I have a fic anniversary coming up in August and am contemplating a project to mark it.

ETA: GUYS. Misha. Priest outfit.

You're welcome.

Normally Monday is D&D, but game is delayed tonight so I get to watch my show.

Three of my loves: Deadwood, Tombstone and Brian Kinney on QAF. So you could imagine that when Gale Harold showed up on Deadwood playing Wyatt Earp I was all a-squee. I really liked show's the dark take on Wyatt and Morgan; one of my biggest disappointments with how the show "ended" was that we never got any resolution on that storyline. I would have paid good money to have had a "The Earps and Doc Holliday raise hell in Deadwood" story.

http://l-userpic.livejournal.com/98857000/1380759

Oh, Guerrero. I still haven't posted about that last episode, but I'm still all "oh, my heart about it. *Sigh* Needless to say, Guerrero is my favorite character and I like the framing of this shot.

http://l-userpic.livejournal.com/93166936/1380759

Kosh. Kosh is my favorite character on B5, another in a long line of cryptic mentor figures living in my heart. spoilers )

My OTP! These two had me the moment she called him "Baby Doll." Fun and flirty and hopelessly head over heels for each other. This is also my general Squee! icon.

The Crow is one of my favorite movies. I saw it for the first time at 14 in an empty theater and cried my eyes out, and it still hits me every time I see it. Eric lighting up the fire crow after taking out T-Bird is such a striking visual and just a gorgeous shot.

I discovered a new drabble comm! [livejournal.com profile] slashthedrabble! I belonged to a Heroes drabble comm back when that fandom was more active and always had a lot of fun with it. And the best part is that it's not just strictly 100 words; you can write a classic 100 word drabble or stories of precisely 200, 300, 400, or 500 words.

This week's prompt is the Evil Overlord list! Come play!

Public service announcement! Instead of just pushing things back a week Fox is showing Wednesday's Human Target episodes tonight. When I have game. These had better show up on my On Demand at the speed of light.

Especially the second episode.

Seriously, the very title is a spoiler. An awesome spoiler )
misachan: (Guerrero)
I gave myself a snow day today, not because it was really warrented but because I just could not bring myself to dig out my car at 6 in the morning. So today was a day of napping and poking at projects and waiting for the landlord's guy to come and look at the bathroom light, which never happened but at least prompted me to give the kitchen floor a much needed swiffering.

Tonight is another double dose of Human Target, which I am desperately trying to not take as a bad sign for my show's future. I really enjoyed last week's episodes, both because they had a lot of good Guerrero bits and because I liked Ilsa more than I have all season.

more about last week )

On to tonight!

Wait, what is this? This isn't my show. Give me my show, Fox!

ETA: Oh. They put on Raising Hope because they were going to cut to the Tuscon Memorial broadcast at 8:30. Never mind, then.
misachan: (Guerrero)
Whoa! Human Target is two hours tonight? Awesome.

No commentary tonight, I'm trying to finish one more fic for [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking. They go live tomorrow! Write, everyone! Write!

ETA: Holy crap, I think I requested this episode for Yuletide.
misachan: (yuletide kitten)
Just got back from cheering my friend on in a karaoke contest (in which he was robbed, BTW).

...I may be just the slightest bit buzzed on vodka cranberries.:)

I've been pretty clear on my feelings on Ilsa spoilers and discussion about S2 Human Target )

***

Still not done with Yuletide, but I'll get there, hopefully tomorrow. And I'm doing good with the treat I plan on writing. So yay.

I submitted a prompt to [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic, as you do, and this is a prime example of how I'm terrible at comment fic because the idea's been percolating in my idea for the past two days and I kind of want to write it so much my fingers itch. And it's nowhere near comment fic length. This is not helping me fill stockings, brain!
misachan: (Guerrero)
So this looks to be an Ames episode. Someone on the AV Club commented after last week's episode that she was trying so hard to be the Jubilee to Guerrero's Wolverine and I laughed and laughed, because it's true.

Running Commentary )
misachan: (Cleaners)
I spent all of Friday so worried and guilty about being at work instead of with my sick kitty (OMG, what if she needs me? What if she gets worse? She could be dead right now omg) that I couldn't concentrate on anything, and then when I rushed home and burst in the door she was all, "You woke me up. What?"

I should never have children, yo.

***

Being frantic with worry all day did somehow help me figure out what I'm doing with a 5 things story I'm working on, so y'know. At least there's that.

***

Eventually Human Target is going to reveal who Guerrero has his kid with, but until I'm going to continue shipping the hell out of him with Mathilda from Leon. She's be almost 30 in 2010, which is still a tad young for Guerrero but she's so old at 12 that I don't have a hard time believing she could handle him at 29. And if we go by actor ages, Guerrero is right around the same age as Leon in the movie.

Mostly I ship them because they would be unstoppable instruments of death.
misachan: (J-E-T-S)
I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving/Thursday!

Sick Kitty is still sick, although at least she's back home. The vet thinks she had a bad reaction to her distemper booster from a couple of weeks ago and gave me meds for her, but she's still all sleepy-time kitten all the time and Gah. I worry. I've been poking at my [livejournal.com profile] 1sentence to make myself feel better.

Also, the Jets are winning won, which always helps.

Only one more day to sign up for Yuletide! Join us! (One of us! One of us!)

(My God, I'm totally requesting Freaks next year.)

All of my fandom requests have a least one offer, even Gundam 0083, and just when I was beginning to think I was the only person on the internet who'd seen that anime. And I'm vastly amused that the Human Target requests have doubled (granted, that means it's up to six now) since the premiere last night. The awesomeness of Guerrero compels you!

Speaking of, let's talk about that premiere, shall we?

Musing and spoilers for 2.01 Ilsa Pucci )

Sigh. My guys.

You all have no idea how much I needed my show back this week.

Oh show. I've missed you so.

Fandoms: Human Target, Justice League Unlimited
Characters: Guerrero & Superman

misachan: (Guerrero)
Fox renewed my show! My shoooooooooooooooow! Another season of improbable action scenes, BSG cameos and weekly felonies!

I'm actually thrilled with a Fox decision. This is a strange and wondrous new world.
