the_deep_magic: A nightmare inexplicably torn from the pages of Kafka! (XF: yes ma'am)
Today's super-annoying, very-first-world problem: despite all the free time on my hands, I am STILL behind on most of my TV shows.  Instead I watch marathons of Hoarders and Tabatha's Salon Takeover.  No, I am not proud of myself.

House: I have one more disc to go on last season... and then all of this season.  Still kind of facepalming over the last ep I watched, in which [VAGUE SPOILER ALERT] homedude turns out in the very last minute of the show to be a mastermind serial killer!  Who eats people!  Finally, something I find less plausible than House/Cuddy.  And I have watched none of this season.

White Collar: Haven't watched any of season three, though I think I still have most of them on my DVR, if it hasn't started randomly erasing crap again.  Grrr, this one I'm pissed at myself about because I really wanted to be caught up by the mid-season premiere, which was... today.

The Office: The last one I watched was the Halloween episode, maybe?  Though I may have missed one before that.  Again, theoretically, these should all be on the DVR.

Bones: I... may have given up on Bones.  I watched the first few episodes of last season and just sort of... stopped.  Plus, the friend I spent New Year's with, upon hearing that I was behind in the show, just went ahead and told me the major plot twists.  And it sounds like they pulled an ninth-season X Files reveal (Dude from Lost: "...until one lonely night when you invited Agent Mulder into your bed." Me: "THE FUCK YOU SAY?!").  The revolving one-dimensional interns, the increasingly-forced chemistry... is it even worth getting caught up?

Sherlock: I have downloaded all three eps but only watched the first one.  And been scrolling very quickly past my Twitter feed and some of my flist until I can watch the other two.  SOME PEOPLE ARE NOT VERY VIGILANT ABOUT SPOILERS.  This is Priority Number One, though.

I also want to watch all of Arrested Development again and go through my massive Avengers box set, though when I'm going to do that, I don't know.

But I am writing again!  Not, like, a lot, but more than none, which is what I'd been doing through the holidays.  But first, off to finish Mockingjay.  And then check if there's a fandom for that.  There's gotta be.

Rules: Tell me you want to play and I'll pick up to three of your fandoms. Then update your journal and answer the following questions:

1. What got you into this fandom in the first place?
2. Do you think you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?
3. Favorite episodes/books/movies, etc?
4. Do you participate in this fandom (fanfiction, graphics, discussions)?
5. Do you think more people should get into this fandom?

[ profile] babykid528 gave me White Collar, Bones, and CSI

Meme time! )

Also, can I just go ahead and express my disgust that both Bones and White Collar periodically turn into car commercials (for Toyota and Ford, respectively)?  It makes me gag whenever it happens, and you can tell it absolutely pains the actors.  I mean, sure, Scully and Mulder always ended up in a powder-blue Taurus, but they never fucking soliloquized over it.  Really, it's about as subtle as that scene in The Truman Show where Laura Linney randomly picks up the can of cocoa and starts spieling about it and Truman is all "Who are you talking to?"  BLARGH, I say!

Seriously though, I think I'll write a letter.  Does anyone have any idea who I'd address it to?

Okay, you know what? Bitch wants to see my work, he can come find ME.

Haven't bought my plane ticket to New Zealand yet -- in all honesty, that's actually Plan E, somewhere behind writing trashy romance novels and joining the circus. Do people still run away and join the circus? Most seem to be composed of European families that have passed down the noble skill of chainsaw juggling for generations upon generations. I can peel a banana with my toes, though. Can shuck corn, too. I have monkey feet.

Am I the only one to see the Avatar preview and think "meh"? It looks like the world's longest and most expensive ad campaign for a video game. Speaking of...

Mild spoilers for that Bones episode -- you know which one I'm talking about )
Also, is it just me, or do the recent episodes seem to forget about the A plot until the last 10 minutes? It goes like this: murder, Booth and Brennan bicker, Cam rolls her eyes, pointless interrogation scene for the Sweets fangirls, Hodgins and Intern-of-the-Week bicker, Cam rolls her eyes, Angela and Hodgins exchange Meaningful Looks, Cam rolls her eyes, Booth and Brennan have a Difference of Opinion, Angela talks some sassy sense into Brennan and calls her "Sweetie," OH SHIT WE FORGOT ABOUT THE MURDER, HERE THIS GUY DID IT, Booth and Brennan have SEXUAL TENSION OMG GUYS SO UNRESOLVED MAYBE THEY WILL DO IT NEXT WEEK SO KEEP WATCHING.

Is TV getting worse, or am I just now developing standards?

Y'know what part of fandom I just can't get into? Fanvids. Some of the funny ones, okay, but I just can't take most of them seriously. This might have to do with a particularly traumatic experiences in my younger years, in which no one mentioned the fact that the X Files fanvid I was watching was spliced with porno footage. "Awww, look, Mulder is comforting Scully and-- UNEXPECTED DICK!" So maybe it's that, no matter how artfully your fanvid is made, some small, cringing part of me is just waiting for the dick.

Yeah, I said that. I'd say it again, too.

*Dear Thailand: I'm sorry. That was uncalled for.

Rating: PG
Spoilers: 1x07 The Man on Death Row (not gonna make much sense unless you've seen it)
Disclaimer: Like the recycling bins I stole from the neighbors, the characters are not mine, but I use them anyway.
Author's Note: This was supposed to be a part of something larger, but I got stuck. I still might finish it, but until then, I thought I'd at least post this part. Also, I haven't seen this episode in awhile, so forgive any inconsistencies.

I lied to you. )
the_deep_magic: A nightmare inexplicably torn from the pages of Kafka! (the power of Christ compels you)
Title: Rings
Author: Aurora
Rating: G
Spoilers: Teeniest reference to “The Man in the Fallout Shelter”
Summary: A little post-Christmas Christmas fluff, but hopefully not of the utterly tooth-rotting variety.
Disclaimer: Fox owns the characters, and probably part of my soul by now. Un-beta’d, but thoroughly, thoroughly spell-checked.

I’m waiting ‘til New Year’s to surprise you with the piranha-eaten corpse. )
