So you know that one month ago I posted about possibly meeting up with a former bandmate and friend but we were both too busy? Or possibly you have forgot since it wasn't exactly this big life-changing event. Except now we're both exam-free and planning to meet tomorrow, time and place still unknown. For something that's not a date but just hanging out with an old friend and catching up without having to resort to facebook. I think the last time I arranged to meet with someone (for a reason not strictly related to mathematics) I was in high school. So I'm starting to panic. My two big conversation topics are mathematics and fandom. Awesome. I'm praying so hard that he's still into sci-fi, otherwise this is going to be so awkward. I'm trying to refrain from googling "conversation starters with people with zero social skills".

At least this explains why I spent Saturday night watching Camelot and looking for gifs on tumblr.
The first episode is... well... it's okay, I suppose. I don't want to rain on anyone's parade, but I can't share everyone's excitement. I'll be watching and probably reading some fic, especially if I can be pointed towards Merlin/Arthur dub-con. (Yeah, I know, sorry. I have no shame.) It just didn't pull me in the way, for example, the first episode of H50 did.
Spoilery live reaction to the episode:
Copy-pasted from tumblr because I like to spam both my tumblr followers and you, but I'll save you the spoilers at least. There are gifs. )

ETA: I kind of forgot to mention I finally started watching Misfits. I'm currently at S01E01 because my siblings are being a pain and refuse to marathon it. Urgh. I really hope I can avoid spoilers for another while.
The last episode of Vampire Diaries was so awesome. Damon. Flame throwers. Caroline. Damon. ♥
SPN is... meh. They're running out of ideas, and they're trying to poke fun at themselves, but it's just kind of sad. The best part of the ep was the premise, pacing and dialogue and everything else just fell flat.

LIVEWATCH!

I cannot hold myself. My ovaries weren't ready for this.

...After this out-of-program special, lemme remind you that Valentine's Day's (the day) live watch of Valentine's Day (the movie) is starting in... well, the countdown says 48 minutes. FFFFFF I KNOW I'M LATE, I WAS DISTRACTED, CAN YOU BLAME ME?

Valentine's Day livewatch spam


Someone give me a gif. I'm too busy staring at that photo to pull myself together.

Thank you everyone who replied to my post yesterday, it was a bad moment and you helped make it better. You guys are awesome. ♥

Now let's talk about happier things. Suddenly, new eps air! Gifs! Squee! Incoherent flailing!

Spoilers. )
renrenren3: (Glee * Kurt & Blaine)
You know how most times I'll look forward to an episode and read spoilers as they trickle in and watch teasers and speculate what might happen and think it'll be epic?

And I get my hopes too high and when the episode airs it's never ever nearly as epic as I expected.

Well, screw that. I just watched the Glee Superbowl episode and it was beyond epic.

Spoilers, gifs and whatnot. )

Spoilerpalooza. )



In other news, I joined [livejournal.com profile] maridichallenge (nah, totally not stalking anyone!) and I'm taking part in their annual tombola, which is the Italian version of bingo. Or is bingo the English/American version of... well, whatever.
The chance of customizing my card with trendy colours and a 1-in-6 chance of landing the "duck-shaped vibrator" prompt lured me in. So now I have yet another list of things to write, but they're all pretty awesome. Apart from the mpreg prompt that had me go "FFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!" and complain for an inordinate amount of time, but then it was the first one I wrote because I'm insane like that.

Worse than gay porn (SPN, Dean and Sam, ~2,000 words, PG-13)
I wrote mpreg without actual mpreg. But it still warrants a mpreg warning for discussing mpreg. I still find mpreg awfully icky but now I can't stop saying mpreg.


Click my awesome card for embiggening!

Click this cut to figure out what the prompts are! )

Also, I finally closed voting at [livejournal.com profile] camelot_fics so I can de-anon for my own entry:
Fancy clothes (Merlin, Arthur and Merlin, ~600 words, PG)
Now... onwards to that Layton ficlet that's been plaguing me!
renrenren3: (SPN * not drunk enough)
Yeah, the return of the inane journal entries in which I talk about the shows I'm watching. Which is not the shows that are airing right now since I'm behind with a lot of shows, but bear with me. Or skip this entry entirely.

Speaking of too many shows... )

♠ For the first time since I don't know how long, I laughed out loud at Supernatural. Even though Castiel wasn't in this episode. Even though I didn't think much of the plot. Is it just me or the dialogue was way more fun that usual? Or maybe it's because the big damn plot for S6 had been shelved for once. Though it seems like it'll be back with a vengeance next Friday, but you can't have everything. I kind of... have mixed feelings towards SPN. It was my happy creepy summer show, I burned through 5 seasons in a couple of months and I'm left with a show in its final season. Sad. I should just give up and force my sister to watch the first two seasons again with me.

♠ Speaking of creepy, supernatural jerks: The Vampire Diaries is awesome. And by The Vampire Diaries I mean Damon. But also everyone else. Who are also awesome. Damn, Stefan and Elena did take some levels in badass. I'm now hooked on the show and trying not to get spoiled about any more plot points. If they keep it up through S1's finale, I might have a new OT3.

♠ I still haven't watched episode 3x11 of Merlin. It's just... Morgana makes me a sad panda. And the Arthur/Merlin abuse. WTF, show writers. Hoping that watching the finale together will make up for a sub-par season, especially since I've heard good things about 3x12.

♠ OMGWTFBBQGLEE T-14 HOURS! Yeah, I know it airs in less than 3 hours but it'll be in the dead of the night here and I have to wait until my sister gets home from school to actually watch it. FFFF. MUST RESIST SPOILERS! MUST NOT DIE OF ANTICIPATION!

UNF.

GAIZ! GAIZ! MORE PROMO PHOTOS FROM MERLIN 3X13 HAVE SURFACED AND YOU KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS!

THERE'S ALSO ONE WITH THE KNIGHTS + MERLIN, FOR THOSE OF US WHO'VE BEEN WONDERING WHERE HE WAS!

CLICK CLICK CLICK! )


Also I've started watching The Vampire Diaries in the hope it'll distract me from the sad, sad lack of Glee until next week.
So far it's... meh. Apart from Damon, who saved two episodes just by showing up and trolling everyone else. And Edward Stefan needs to stop frowning at the world and try some other expression. He might want to look dark and broody, but I think he's just constipated. Also I can't watch him make that face any more without laughing, and since he does that face all the time... yeah, I laugh in all of his scenes.
But even tropes says that it gets better after episode 4 or 5, so I'll go watch the next episode now.

THERE WAS ALSO SOMETHING ELSE I NEEDED TO SAY BUT I'VE BEEN HOPELESSLY DISTRACTED. FFFFFFF BOYS.

So one of my professors is pregnant and we were hoping that her course would be taken over by a colleague next semester. Because she's a complete bitch and likes to make us suffer by making everyone fail her exam. No, seriously, a friend of mine already tried her exam six times and it's the only one she still needs to graduate. So we were all hoping she'd get out of the way and her course would go to someone who'd give us the chance to take the exam both in January and February, like we can for all other courses. And we'd talked with her replacement who seemed fine with it.

Except I just got a mail saying that she put her foot down and said we absolutely can't have more than one date. Shouldn't she be feeling, dunno, motherly and nice and things like that? It's not even as if we like taking her exam multiple times just to waste her time, I'd be more than happy to pass it at my first try and move on. Bitch.

On a definitely happier note, EW published 10 promo photos for A Game of Thrones and I approve of them. Especially this one of Nicolaj Coster-Waldau, who's just fuelling my obsession for pretty men with swords.

Actually all the photos look great, apart from the ones of Kit Harrington. I can't say I'm a fan of his moustache, but maybe he'll grow on me. He does play one of my favourite characters.

I hope there's some hi-res version coming soon. I need to find the fandom, it's finally time to start iconing my heart out.

With all this flailing, I almost forgot: I got my assignment from [livejournal.com profile] sherlockmas and it looks awesome. Can't wait to start writing. ♥
I miiight need some help with police procedures though, is anyone willing to help a girl?
renrenren3: (Merlin * woo)
WARNING: EXCESSIVE HOTNESS. Also Merlin S3 spoilers. But, honestly, you need to see this photo if you haven't already. )

I DON'T EVEN KNOW ANY MORE. THERE WAS SOME STUFF I NEEDED TO POST ABOUT REAL LIFE AND THINGS THAT SEEMED IMPORTANT BUT I'VE DECIDED THAT MY MAIN PRIORITY RIGHT NOW IS FLAILING AND TRYING TO REMEMBER HOW TO BREATHE.

HOW DO YOU EVEN BREATHE.

THIS IS JUST.

IDK.

I'LL BE IN MY BUNK.

Stuff.

FIRST OF ALL WELCOME EVERYONE FROM THE CRAZY [livejournal.com profile] merlin_land_ot FRIENDING MEME! I'm totally friending everyone I wasn't already friends with because it was the greatest thing ever.

And speaking of memes, since I was talking about this with Jen earlier:
1. Make a list of 15 characters.
2. SHOW THAT LIST TO SOMEONE AND YOU DIE.
3. Let the people of your FList comment one (1) number and one song they've chosen.
4. WITHOUT SHOWING YOUR LIST, write something about the character, using the song to inspire yourself.
5. You done? Good. Now you can go and show which character or couple it was.
6. It's a meme with a twist!!

Yeees, it's the one I've already posted before but since I only got one reply (#13) and I've friended like 12 new people since then I figured it might be worth a shot to try and get your interest again. The fandoms are Merlin, Doctor Who, Torchwood, SPN, The Big Bang Theory, Inception, ASOIAF, Temeraire, Locke Lamora. And also Castle which I totally forgot about.
HIZA I SWEAR YOUR FICLET IS COMING! Kinda sorta.

#14 is still open! Not that you probably know that character anyway. :|

List! )

ALSO EVERYONE SHOULD JOIN [livejournal.com profile] sherlockmas BECAUSE I SAY SO AND BECAUSE I'M ENTERING TOO MANY EXCHANGES AND I NEED SOME COMPANY IN MY DESCENT INTO MADNESS.

And no, I still haven't watched Merlin, though I did watch SPN but I keep forgetting to post about it because I find the vampire plot kinda boring. Also watched Children of Earth today. Russel T. Davies owes me three hours of my life back. And I'm just 4 episodes away from finishing Doctor Who S5, what am I going to do after? D:

Oh, I see it's midnight right now. Here, have a totally useless manip:
renrenren3: (FMA * shocked Ed)
Dude. Dude. Duuude! This is awesome. I finally watched Merlin's S3 premiere and it was awesome! Much, much love for the boys.

Spoilery bit here. )

Anyway, definitely better than SPN so far. Good to have at least one ongoing series I can look forward to. Apart from animu of course, Bakuman is starting in a few days and I can't remember the last time I was so psyched about something being animated. And just how shippy was volume 4? Seriously, I'd think the mangakas were going for not-so-subtle subtext if both boys didn't already have nice girlfriends already... Well, Shujin does, Saiko is an idiot so his situation is more complicated.

Urgh, I just had onion focaccia because my parents forgot it in the microwave, then chocolate and tea, and I have a croissant for when I'll get hungry around 1am. I really need to revise my eating habits.

Day 20 - The "can't stand the sexual tension anymore" pairing?

Roy/Riza from Fullmetal Alchemist.

Seriously, at the height of the last few episodes, with shit happening everywhere in Central and everyone about to die, half of my worries were whether those two would get together. The other half were whether they'd survive.

It's just, argh! What's with all the formalities, and calling each other "Colonel" and "Lieutenant"? It makes the UST so, so much worse! Honestly, she gets her throat slit in front of your eyes and you don't even call her name? You say "Lieutenant"? Are you for serious? And you're ready to risk everything for each other, and can more or less read each other's thoughts from just a tiny gesture, and you make a badass team. YOU'RE ONE OF THE TWO COUPLES THAT WERE BLATANTLY OBVIOUS SINCE THE BEGINNING AND YOU KNOW IT TOO, SO STOP ACTING SO PROFESSIONAL AND KISS ALREADY!

Technically we don't get any confirmation that they're together by the end, but they're sharing a hospital room. That's more than proof for me. And they finally had sex and got rid of the UST and lived happily ever after.

Let the picspammage commence. )
renrenren3: (Merlin * gif)
Still doing the 5 things meme - ask away, you can't do any worse than [livejournal.com profile] hiza_chan.

Day 10 - Why aren't these two married in real life?

Strange question. I assume by "real life" that you're referring to two real people, so is this about RPF? I've got to say, it usually squicks me out. Okay, 99% of the time it squicks me out. The only exception to this being (of course) Colin Morgan and Bradley James because of their silly boyish antics and because they're just too similar to Merlin and Arthur. So I suppose if I have to name a couple it'd be them.

I mean, I do know they're just friends. And it's kind of embarrassing to read fanfic about them, but... I can't help myself.
They're just so ridiculously cute together. They're shameless, really, the slash just writes itself.
I do hope they don't have any significant other, it'd make things even more embarrassing.
renrenren3: (SPN * hug)
This meme is awesome - it makes me post every day and distracts me from things like having to post about RL, which is as crappy as you'd expect in the week before an exam. Crapcrapcrap.

Anyway, fandom is like always a life saver. Looks like I finished my Sherlock entry just in time for the bonus challenge which is... fanmixes. Oh noes. Good thing I'm in a fanmixing mood anyway, but now I have to finish my Robot Unicorn Attack mix first, because I might get confused and Sherlock doesn't go well with sparkly unicorns.

Day 07 - The most heartbreaking scene?

Spoilers for Gundam SEED Destiny, Inu Yasha and CLANNAD. Oh, and SPN season 5. )
renrenren3: (DRRR!! * SHIZAYA!)
Day 06 - The best kiss?

This question is bothersome because I don't remember any scene in particular. So I'm just giving you a compilation of kiss scenes I happen to remember right now, with pictures and videos and stuff. Under the cut to spare your f-list.

Warning: het. )
