misachan: (Lex drinking)
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.
misachan: (not gay at all)
I have an impressive bruise on on arm from the blood drive yesterday. I'm not alarmed or anything --- the handout I was given included the possibility of there being a "kaleidoscope of color" --- but it is still a fearsome thing. Fiance physically recoiled when I showed it to him.:)

***

There's a Claude fan wanking it up all over the possibility of this being the last season on some of the Heroes comms (check out Fandom Wank for a blow-by-blow) and it's giving me a severe case of contact embarrassment.

I'm always a little baffled when someone claims up and down that a character couldn't be gay/bi, uh uh, no way, but especially when it's a character like Claude whom know so little about --- like his real name, for instance. He doesn't so much as talk to a woman in his entire time on the show! (In fact, the only time he's even in the same room as a woman, it's because he's trying like crazy to break up Peter and Simone. This is not heterosexual subtext, people.

It's 2010. Can we start backing away from "straight until proven gay" yet? Noah being married does not mean he and Claude didn't let things get out of hand after a harrowing mission. Buffy slept with four guys on BtVS, but she also slept with a woman in the comics and had subtext galore with Faith.

Still plenty of time to contribute to [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti! (I'm going to be pimping this a lot. It's for a good cause!) I'm here, in case any of you would like to bend me to your whims.:) (Seriously, if there's a fic you've wanted me to write --- say a follow-up to an existing fic or a fandom or pairing we have in common you have a perfect prompt for --- this how you can force me to make it happen!
misachan: (9/Rose)
I'm watching an episode of Monk on demand right now, and this guy is the most jovial murderer I've ever seen.

I confirmed the other day that my car CD player can play mp3 CDs, and let me tell you, it is glorious. My Zen is ancient and won't sync up with Vista (and I've lost the disc for it, anyway) so for the past few months I've been doing without. This is almost like having my Zen all over again. Nothing improves a dark commute like belting out "Holy Diver" at the top of your lungs. (Has anyone actually listened to the lyrics of that song? They're gloriously nonsensical. "Ride the tiger/You can see his stripes so you know he's clean/Oh don't you see what I meeeaaaaaaannnnnnn?" That is just wonderful nonsense.)

From last week's [livejournal.com profile] fannish5:Five canon moments that turned a casual fandom into a hardcore fandom for you.

Heroes: Peter goes to rescue Claire in "Homecoming." I love comics, so obviously I was a fan of Heroes from the beginning but Peter going in to rescue Claire even though he had no powers, no plan and was very sure that is was going to get him killed won my love. I can never resist heroes who do the right thing because dammit, someone has to do it, especially when doing the right thing can cause the hero nothing but trouble. Claude going back to rescue Peter from Mohinder's apartment a few episodes later provoked the same reaction (Is it really any surprise I shipped them?)

Doctor Who: "Dalek." "I saw it happen. I made it happen." And then Rose saving him at the end, just by standing there and not letting him fall. Oh, Doctor. That episode ripped out my heart and danced a tango on it.

Sherlock Holmes: "The Norwich Builder" (Granada TV series) There's a scene in "The Norwich Builder" where Jeremy Brett's Holmes is examining a crime for clues and steps up on a narrow railing with such grace that I remarked that if D&D elves were real, that was how they would move. I don't know why it struck me so much, but it did; it helped that TNB is one of those few cases where Holmes is at a loss which makes his solving the crime all the more satisfying. And then the next episode was "The Blue Carbuncle," where Holmes looks at a hat for a few hours and deduces that a man's wife no longer loves him. I never had a chance.

Kushiel's Legacy: There's a scene in the first book where Phedre gets kidnapped and her sworn bodyguard is forced to creep underneath a bridge to be able to rescue her undetected. And he didn't even like her, but dammit, he'd sworn vows. I have a big weakness for Knight Templar types and Joscelin hits a lot of those buttons; that scene was when I finally forgave him for being Phedre's love interest and not the childhood friend I'd been shipping her with.:) And I was already enthralled with the book, but that was when it tipped over from, "Oh, this is cool!" to "Well, no going to class for me today."

Watchmen: The Handshake. Have I mentioned that I am helpless before unlikely yet passionate friendships? Or that Rorschach and Nite Owl remind me of a deeply crazy version of Wyatt and Doc from Tombstone?

Eight years ago the sun still felt like August and there wasn't a cloud in the sky. Today is cold and raining and windy, and it feels so much more appropriate to the day than that terrible, scorching, empty blue.

I never lived in New York (although I worked there briefly), but I used to take the PATH into Chinatown all the time. A few weeks before 9/11 I was on the WTC train making an anime run before the fall semester started. The car was crowded and while I had a seat, not everyone did; among the standing was a group of four or five sharp-dressed, Japanese businessmen and women and I spent most of the ride quietly listening to them all speak in Japanese and trying to pick out words I knew. (Because deep down I am that kind of otaku.:) We all got out at the same stop, me walking down to Canal street and them heading towards WTC.

A few days after the attack I was in the Hoboken PATH station; for those who weren't in the area, for weeks after most of the walls of the PATH were covered with Missing flyers for people who were never going to be found. One of these flyers were of a young Japanese woman in a business suit, and I spent about five minutes staring at it trying to remember if she was one of the people I'd been eavesdropping on in that PATH car. I'll never know if she was, or if any of the other people in that group made it out.

But I think of her every year, and of all of the other people I'll never share a PATH train with or pass on the street again.

We still remember.

I'm trying to find a transcript of what Masi Oka said in Japanese on the 11/17 Heroes Post Show on G4. My google-fu has failed me, so please, if anyone knows how this can be accomplished please hook me up. I don't need a translation, just what he said.

Anyone? Please?
