Spoilers ahoy

SHIELDCollapse )

Letter for TW holidays writer

So, I kind of suck as it's taken me way too long to get round to writing this, so I apologise to my TW Holidays writer.





Ships/characters

So my ship is Derek/Stiles and I'm totally otp about them.

Stiles & Lydia as friends
Stiles & Cora as friends
Stiles & Erica as friends

Cora/Erica
Cora/Lydia

Derek & Cora (family)

Stiles & Sheriff (family)


Things I want

I'll love anything with Derek and Stiles becoming friends as they become something more. Slow build is love. And I'd love it if Stiles wasn't all determined to have sex immediately and was good/happy with waiting and dating and making out and a bit more is more than enough for him

I love all the Hale family feels so anything about Derek and Cora getting to know each other and becoming brother and sister again is love.

Anything with Stiles and the sheriff is also love.


Things that I don't want:

Rape, non-con, dark relationships, abuse, cheating, deathfic, mpreg, torture, bdsm, extreme angst, misogyny.

(and if we could pretend Paige never happened, that'd be great)

I also don't like anything where either Derek or Stiles are with or interested in anyone else before they get together.

I don't Stiles and Derek hating each other or thinking they aren't friends as they get together. I'm also not a fan of it happening quickly before they seem to like each other. I also want Stiles to be well over Lydia before he gets with Derek.


Prompts (or more like ideas, because I'm terrible at prompts):

Anything about Stiles and Derek in the future, being all domestic-like and adorable

Cora and Stiles torturing Derek as they become bros

The sheriff getting used to the whole supernatural thing, while noticing that there's something growing between Stiles and Derek

Erica and Stiles being geeky together and Derek despairing of them, but also loving watching them geek out

Erica, Cora and Stiles geeking out together etc

Stiles dealing with his more or less ptsd with the help of his dad and Derek

AU where Erica and Stiles talking about their respective Hale (Stiles/Derek, Erica/Cora) or are pinning over them - maybe at college - and plot to get them

Cora wooing Lydia (bonus is Stiles and/or Derek find it hilarious)


Having said that, I'll love anything fluffy with romance and friendship and family feels.
Spoilers ahoyCollapse )

thisissirius and I re-watched nu!Trek last night after getting home from Into Darkness and, personally, I think I prefer the first film.

This is a strange year in TV for me

I have, over the years, dumped TV shows. Obviously. Otherwise I'd be watching practically every scripted show on TV. However, I've never been so tempted to dump so many in one year.

Over the years, shows I've actively dumped have been CSI, CSI:NY, Hawaii Five-0 and Criminal Minds (but I seem to have returned for the far less awful 8th season. Huh.)

But this year I'm tempted to dump Homeland, Suits, NCIS and Castle.

HomelandCollapse )

SuitsCollapse )

NCISCollapse )

CastleCollapse )

How is it already May?

No, really, how is it May? I'm not complaining as such, I'm just more surprised. I managed to go an entire month without posting anything on LJ. I swear I meant to post more this year. So far, it's not working.

Currently I'm being driven insane by chapter 15 of my Girl!Stiles fic. It's seriously driving me completely mental. Just ask tahariel. You have no idea just how much I'm looking forward to being able to post it. I don't know what about this chapter went SO wrong, but something sure did. I have a feeling the next chapter is going to be difficult as well. It's written, I'm just not sure I like it.

What I really need to do is re-watch some of S1 of Teen Wolf but I'm not sure I want to subject myself to that. Though, I also have to go and remember what the school actually looks like, so I think I'm going to have to suck it up and throw on an episode sooner or later.

As well as being driven insane by fic, I've naturally been watching TV shows more or less religiously.

So, lets get the big one out the way: Spartacus

All the feelsCollapse )

The Good WifeCollapse )

JustifiedCollapse )

Mad Men is still Mad Men. There's no point talking about specific points until the entire season has aired. all I will say is that I love Peggy, Stan, Joan, Trudy and Dawn.

I have started watching Warehouse 13 on Netflix and I kind of love it. The BFF relationship between Pete and Myka is my favourite, along with the big bro/sis relationship they both have with Claudia. Plus, a gay guy where him being gay is just one part of who he is and isn't a big freaking deal. I just. Guys, I love this show like burning.

Game of Thrones - no spoilers for the booksCollapse )

So I saw Iron Man 3

Spoilers ahoyCollapse )

Books that I have read:-

6) White Cat - Holly Black

7) Indigo Spell - Richelle Mead

TV show land

How the hell has it been about six weeks since I last updated this?

So, my Internet has been fucky for the last three weeks so I'm woefully behind on all my TV watching. However, there are some shows that I'm fully up to date with.

CastleCollapse )

The Good WifeCollapse )

JustifiedCollapse )

Spartacus"Collapse )

Elementary - Everything about this show is amazing. The growing and developing relationship between Sherlock and Joan is awesome and gives me all the feels. I adore Bell and Gregson. Everything this shoe does makes me happy.

ArrowCollapse )

I am going to be catching up on SPN this weekend and Nikita next weekend.

And at some point I'll get to Suits, Revenge, Scandal and Dallas.

I've given up on The Big Bang Theory. I just can't be bothered to dl it any more. This season has been pretty lame and what they are doing with and to Amy and Sheldon is making me really uncomfortable.

I'm this close to giving up on NCIS as well. As soon as Ziva and Tony get together, I'm through but I'm determined to fight it out until then. Having said that, I've missed some episodes and have made no effort to go back and find them. NCIS:LA is still crazy enough that I really don't care that it makes little to no sense plot wise.

Also, I've read a book

5) Ever After - Kim Harrison - I continue to love this series and this one was awesome. Al! Trent! Ivy! Rachel! Cerasi! Jenks! Quen! I'll stop now.

But mostly, I've been sorting out Girl!Stiles, which just passed 10,000 hits on AO3 and kind of perplexes me.

And I'm finishing off another Derek/Stiles fic and I'm working on my 00Q fic.

So, it's already been 2013 for over a week

Which is vaguely terrifying. How have we already experienced 9 days of January? (look, it was 9 days when I started writing this post)

Uh, so, this is a bit late, but: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year


Christmas was good and quiet as was New Year.

The highlight, naturally, was Dr Who. spoilersCollapse )

I really can't wait till April (or is it March? Either way, it'll be around Easter).

I didn't really watch anything else over the holiday other than Graham Norton on New Years Eve which, started off awkwardly with Tom Cruise but everything after with Billy Crystal, Hugh Jackman and John Bishop was golden.

And, if you never watch it, you have to watch this clip because while the rest of it is good, nothing is quite as hilarious as Billy Crystal and Hugh Jackman reading cooking innuendoes from The Great British Bake-off to each other. Hugh Jackman cracking up is a joy to watch.



I saw The Hobbit - I enjoyed it, but I didn't fall in love with it like I did Lord of the Rings. There were moments I loved and moments that made me go 'meh'. But I did love the beginning. I know some say it was overlong and indulgent, but I loved it. Hell guys, I sodding well cried when we saw Hobbiton again. And New Zealand lookined fucking gorgeous. But other stuff, well, I was less enthusiastic about.

Excitingly, my brother bought a PS3 and because of its DVD capabilities, I'm finally able to watch DVDs on my TV with sound coming out of my TV and not my laptop. This is a thousand different kinds of awesome, I can't even begin to tell you. It also plays blu-ray too. Naturally I'm celebrating this by pre-ordering Skyfall. I'm also looking into getting The Avengers boxset (you know, the one that has all the films in it - at least until all the sequels start up this year) from the US. Mostly because I refuse to not own a Joss Whedon commentary.

I finally watched season 1 of The Hour, which I loved. Why the hell did it take me this long to watch it? My favourite characters are Freddie (shocking, I know) and Lix because Anna Chancellor is one of my favourites. I guessed the identity of the spy fairly early, but I hoped I was wrong. I also had no idea that Julian Rhind-Tutt, Andrew Scott, Jamie Parker or Burn Gorman were in it, so that was fun. I've already got season 2 on DVD and am going to watch that as soon as I finish season 4 of oz. Maybe sooner.

Talking about oz, it's amazing and I love it, although it's a hard-hitting show. But what I love about it most is that oz, Law and order:SVU, Homicide: Life on the Street, The Wire, Treme and, to an extent, Generation Kill recycle actors like it's going out of fashion. They all turn up on all the shows. It's bloody marvellous and so hilarious. Especially seeing as all the prisoners in oz, all seem to play cops in all the other shows (including Terry Kinney and Harold Perrineau who turn up in The Unusuals and Eamonn Walker who ends up a firefighter chief in Chicago Fire). It's cast is insanely awesome and the sheer number of people you recognise will blow your mind.

I also finally finished season 5 of The Wire. It's taken me nearly 2 years to get around to it - mostly because I didn't want to finish the show because I love it so much. But, again with the cross-casting - which makes me so gleeful. Although, possibly one of the best thing was Detective Munch in the background of a bar, arguing about a tab.

I've also managed to read some books already this year. And since I did so dismally last year, with my book reading, I'm making a huge effort to read loads this month to make up for it.

1) The Revolution was Televised - Alan Sepinwall

I love this book because it's written by one of my favourite TV critics (who does a podcast called Firewall and Iceberg with another of my favourite TV critics, Dan Fienberg - you see what they did there with the name?) about some of my favourite TV shows (oz, Deadwood, The Wire, Buffy, Mad Men, Friday Night Lights and Battlestar Galactica - there are chapters about The Shield, Lost, Breaking Bad and The Sopranos but I've not watched them/finished watching them, so I've not read them yet in case of spoilers) with interviews and comments from some of my favourite show creators and writers. Seriously, if you like any of these shows and have been watching the way TV has evolved over the last 15 years, this is the book for you.

2-4) Artemis Fowl and the Arctic Incident, Artemis Fowl and the Eternity Code, Artemis Fowl and the opal Deception - Eoin Colfer

TV shows are slowly coming back. Slowly.

I watched the series finale of Leverage this week. I've not managed to watch the 3 previous episodes because I really didn't like the sound of them but I couldn't wait until whenever I do pluck up the courage and watch them to watch the finale, so, in a rare act, I skipped episodes. And you guysCollapse )

I've watched The Good Wife (which was so fucking good for me), Person of Interest, Chicago Fire (which was also so fucking good for me. I just wanna give Shay and Severide all the hugs in the world) and finally Justified is back on my TV and I'm a happy, happy girl because Raylan Givens is in my face again.

And Spartacus is back in just over a fortnight and I can't bloody wait.

And I've also made up my list of New Year Resolutions so wish me luck with them


Also over the holidays, I came across an insane amount of fanfic I'd started but never got around to finishing. I've got stuff from Stargate Atlantis, Star Trek and Merlin. There must be roughly 50k sitting on my laptop until I decide what to do with it all. Because a part of me wants to finish them because I like the stories, but the realistic part of me is laughing at the idealistic part because I'm having issues dealing with an ongoing 00Q series that seems to have stalled (I have ideas. I just can't get them out of my head and onto paper in a good way) and my girl!Stiles fic that is over 90k in part 1. I still have parts 2 and 3 to do and I want need to get them done before a) S3 starts and b) I lose interest in 1) the fic or 2) the show (which is seeming more likely by the day). Woe is me.

And, uh, this could be considered a longer post than I was expecting, so I'm going to stop and go to bed now. It seems like a plan.
I still have more books, tv boxsets and films than I rightly know what to do with.

lists under the cutCollapse )

99 95 books
27 26 films
42 35 TV shows

Okay, so first up, I've been writing and posting more fic over the last few weeks. I've just forgotten to mention it here.

Part 1 is about 88k and part 2 is already about 30k. I don't even know what my life choices are at the moment.


And, like the rest of the Internet yesterday, I watched the Star Trek teaser trailer



And I'm...decidedly 'meh' about it.

To me, it just looked like any old action movie and this makes me sad because I really loved Nu!Trek and this has killed a lot of my squee. I mean, it's not like I'm saying I won't get it back - there are a lot more trailers to come and I might like any number of them, but this one left me feeling kind of cold.

It's been mentioned around the place here and on Tumblr, but it really bugged the hell out of me that all the men are jumping, running, shooting etc and all the women are standing around looking terrified, crying into a man's shoulder or screaming. I'm not saying that's representative of what the film is going to be like, but it was disappointing to see. I hope later trailers so Uhura and whoever else doing things.

Plus, do we really need the destruction of earth/the human race/everything that ever existed under the sun to be the plot of every film now? Because, boring - not to mention predictable, it is getting. it is perfectly possible to create a storyline where things are on the line without the destruction of the human race/world as we know it being on the line. I get that it's an easy out, that every person ever dying is a big deal, but I'm getting to the point where I'd be happy for the universe to flash out of existence if it would mean not getting a generic sequel.

The music made me think of DKR, Prometheus and Inception. Particularly with where the big, booming moments were placed and just made me roll my eyes.

Plus, the continuing Nolanisation of films is REALLY beginning to bug me. EVERYTHING is going dark. Now, in some, I'm okay with that. Skyfall is one of my favourite films this year and the Iron Man 3 trailer makes me all kinds of excited. But EVERYONE is doing it now. And it just makes me not want to see these films I'd otherwise be insanely excited to see.

I thought Dark Knight was good right up until the last 20 minutes and everything with Harvey and then it became a distinctly average film for me and DKR just bored me. (I loved Anne Hathaway and Tom Hardy but whenever they weren't on the screen, I really didn't care.) I don't want other films following the same template. I get that they probably will because Nolan's Batman made a shitload of money, but doesn't mean I have to like it.

It's kind of difficult to decide too much about Star Trek Into Darkness (which is still a dumb title) because they are being so damn vague about the storyline to the point where we still don't know who the big bad is. But there are many, many things from that trailer that make me wary that I can't quite find a way to put into words.

possible spoilers under here for both possible storylines and the old ST filmsCollapse )

And this Japanese teaser trailer of Iron Man 3 looks awesome.




So, I've also read Cold Days and LOVED it. I'll be doing a more squee filled post later.

Naturally I've been watching TV, although I've fallen behind with a lot of them, so I'm relieved that the Christmas hiatus is upon us and I'll have time to catch up.

I've not missed an episode of The Good Wife, Arrow, Person of Interest and Chicago Fire so I'll be squeeing about them later, too, I'd imagine. Especially the last couple of Arrow episodes and The Good Wife episodes.

This weekend I'm going to be watching episodes 302-306 of Nikita and I can't wait.

Also: I'm not sure about this new LJ layout when you create a post.

Well, that was unexpected.

In a turn of events I wasn't really expecting, I seem to have committed 007 fic - or, God help me for find this kind of adorable - 00Q fic.

Don't ask me what my brain is thinking, because I honestly have no idea. Especially as I'm smack in the middle of writing a Teen Wolf epic that I really can't take my eyes off and a couple of other Teen Wolf bits and pieces. This is unfortunate timing.

I love that TGW is so consistently awesome. I'm annoyed that ouat keeps squandering its potential.
