Watching the LOST finale. Won't say anything spoilery, except thank you for actually remembering the characters that are gone.
#1. TV Meme.Day 07 - Least favorite episode of your favorite TV show
No, not Black Market. Black Market is dumb and boring, but it could be worse. No, not the Woman King. The Woman King had potential. Yes, Deadlocked. There was some stuff about Deadlocked that was good, but the babies = love (or as nicole_anell
puts it, "TIGH'S CHEATING HEART KILLED A FETUS") struck me as so incredibly dumb AND offensive, that Deadlocked is my winner for worst episode ever. Day 08 - A show everyone should watch
Because the Muppets make EVERYTHING better. They might not fix things, but they make them better.
#2. REMIX is LIVE! (Just in case you were living under a rock.)
The fic written for me was a bit of a surprise: it was No Way Back
, a remix of Come Talk to Me
. It's utterly stunning, gen, and a story about Percy reflecting on his family on the same night they're thinking about him. I have a very hard time being objective about this one, but it's absolutely wonderful regardless. Go read it. I can't do the rec justice because of the nature of this one, but it's beautiful.
#3. I keep talking about it, and I finally wrote the damn thing!Title:
The Woman King (The Gaeta Version)Characters:
Gaeta, Hoshi, Zarek, Narcho, Dee, Dr. Robert, Dr. CottlePairings:
some light Gaeta/Hoshi, and Narcho crushing pretty heavily on DeeSummary:
After stabbing Gaius Baltar, Felix Gaeta is assigned to Dogsville. He was prepared for the headaches and the boredom. He wasn't prepared to investigate a murder.Author's Notes:
I've been talking about this one for a long time. My issue with The Woman King is not the episode itself, but context. Part of the problem (I think) with this episode is it comes too close on the heels of Torn/A Measure of Salvation, making Helo come off as too self-righteous. But also, in hindsight, there are some issues in 4.5 that could have been addressed earlier. Things like Gaeta and Zarek interacting, giving Zarek a chance to champion the side of right, actually introducing Hoshi as Gaeta's lover, and maybe since when did Gaeta hang out with Narcho? I've been maintaining that you if you redid The Woman King with these issues in mind, it would have more redeeming value than Helo roaming around without his shirt on. (Although, let's face it, that's a pretty redeeming value.) ( The Woman King (The Gaeta Version) )
