TV Meme: Day 19: Best TV Show Cast

This is a hard one, because frankly, I like the casts of all my shows. BSG has an awesome cast. West Wing has an awesome cast. Buffy has an awesome cast. Firefly had an awesome cast. LOST has an awesome cast. I really can't choose on this one.

Day 20: Favorite Kiss

Oh, I don't know! To be honest, I'm not crazy about watching people kiss. I'll give you three, because they actually say something about me, I suppose. Under the cut )

The 30 days again )

Running is going... okay. I've got what I am positive is a Morton's neuroma, and I want to have it actually looked at and work out ways that I can run without it getting worse. I've gotten some great advice from a doctor friend and it's really confirmed exactly what the problem is, but I'm thinking it's time for some face-to-face (or face-to-foot, as the case may be) time so I can make sure this sucker doesn't get any worse. I did get new shoes yesterday- I went in for padding and the guy selling me shoes pointed out how tight they were. I did feel a difference in my other foot running last night, but I can still feel the neuroma in my right foot. I know padding is the next step- an orthodic or insole or something.

I also finished the prologue at least for my big bang. Whoohoo! I have a start! I still need to get moving on a ton of fics, but now that Fireflies is out of the way, I can maybe write something a little easier. But I'm really excited about my big bang. I came up with a twist the other day that is pure evil. >:) And interestingly, Kara barged in with guns blazing, declaring that she gets a major role in this story. Which is funny, because I so rarely write her. But she's right, and besides, I'm not stupid enough to argue with an armed Kara Thrace.

My interesting problem with the story is I need to find people who actually support what Roslin is doing. cut for details of BSG/Dollhouse )

Hee. It's the Sesame Street episode where Paul Rudd gets frustrated that the princesses keep rescuing themselves again. I'm getting sick of this one (I think Toby is, too), but I love the message for girls in this one.

Okay. I should write something while Sesame Street finishes. Hmmm....

Whee! Remix reveals are out!

I did not remotely guess my remixer, which is funny. [livejournal.com profile] lyras is someone I have seen for ages around the HP fandom, and then again in the BSG fandom. We seem to move in parallel, but have never completely crossed paths until the [livejournal.com profile] bsg_remix. But anyway, if you haven't already, go read the remix written for me, No Way Back by [livejournal.com profile] lyras. It's a remix of Come Talk to Me, and it is just heartbreaking and makes me cry.

I wrote two fics this year, both of which [livejournal.com profile] puszysty and [livejournal.com profile] grey_sw guessed (so give me a prompt, guys!) Amusingly, one was for [livejournal.com profile] grey_sw, and the other one was for voodoochild/[livejournal.com profile] bluerosefairy. The one for [livejournal.com profile] bluerosefairy turned out to be very obvious, I think: Be My Mirror, My Sword, My Shield (The Girl All the Bad Guys Want Remix), which is a remix of atlanta never looked the same, and was a Tom Zarek fic. The one for [livejournal.com profile] grey_sw was a little less obvious: The Story of Those Who Always Loved You (We Are Family Remix), a remix of Family Snapshot.

Remix meta under here. )

We watched Brothers last night. It didn't get a good critical review overall, and I am at a loss as to why. I actually thought the writing was amazing, and the acting... Jake Gyllenhaal and Tobey Maguire did great, but it was Natalie Portman that broke me. It finished and I just burst into tears. Like, full-fledged sobs. I don't know that I'll ever watch it again, but it was... wow.

We have company coming soon and I guess I'm going for a run, so no writing for me today. ::sniff:: Oh well. But the TV meme!!!

TV Meme: Day 15: Favorite Female Character

Look, BSG ladies, you are complex and wonderful and I really, really appreciate you all and love you. But for sheer likeability? It is really hard to beat:

Kaylee Frye. I almost don't want to say why I like her, because it makes her sound Mary Sue-ish. She's sweet as anything, she's pretty, she's uncannily good with engines, and she enjoys herself and life and pretty much everyone likes her. She's strong, she tells you what she's thinking, she's stubborn, she's bullheaded, and she's loyal and kindhearted. The reason she's NOT a Mary Sue is because canon doesn't twist itself around her. She saves the day when her character would naturally save the day, but she doesn't suddenly acquire strange skills (the scene with Kaylee with the gun, actually, speaks wonderfully to this point) and she doesn't have everyone falling in love with her. Her awkward relationship with Simon where they're attracted to each other but still learning each others' languages is sweet, and although I never saw it as a lifetime thing, it makes me really happy to hear that there was a- what, comic or something?- where that might be the case.

I love a lot of other female characters, but Kaylee is the one I want to be.

That said, hope everyone has a good weekend and stay safe if you're driving!

First of all, this article is pissing me off. Who the hell cares what Elena Kagan dresses like or how she wears her hair??? Come on. Criticize her (or praise her) on something a little more substantive, please. How she wears her hair and what clothing she wears is going to have very little bearing on how she votes on the Supreme Court. I'd go into a huge rant about it, but instead, I'll give you a fic rec from the [livejournal.com profile] bsg_remix: Truth Itself Becomes Suspicious. [livejournal.com profile] frakcancer says everything I want to say much more eloquently. UGH.

Anyway, original fiction question that comes from internet and fandom. Do I appreciate that the word "fail!" exists these days, or does it make me paranoid?

Here is the problem: Aliens are coming to take over Earth. read more )

And TV meme:

10. A show you thought you wouldn't like but ended up loving.

I debated a couple for this one (including BSG! Hey- I was thinking the cheesy 70s series), but the one I must use is:

I bought the first season of TWW as a gift for my husband. I didn't think I'd be interested- I'm not a political person and I didn't think this could sustain my interest. WRONG. So wrong! After the pilot, I was convinced I'd like it, and after they brought in Charlie (Charlie!) I was hooked. I might be a Libertarian, but I think I'd vote for Jed Bartlett.

(Also- Fringe people- in the finale, did you notice the West Wing posters?? They were on Season 11! There's a reason to move over to the other side!)

This post is really for [livejournal.com profile] geekbynight, although if anyone else really wants to read it, feel free. She asked me about my outlining process, and if she could see one of my outlines. This is the working outline for The Space Between Us.

I finally finished the writing meme! Answers under the cut, as well as a list of all the questions )

Now, for the TV one...

Day 02 - A show that you wish more people were watching

Oh, easy!

Fringe. I love this one. Interesting relationships (as long as they don't go Peter/Olivia- please don't go Peter/Olivia!), a fractured little assembled family, seriously awesome female characters (not only Olivia, but Astrid and Nina and Rachel and Emma...) and THE AWESOMEST AU EPISODE EVER!!!!! I really wish more people on my flist were going nuts over it :)
