So I just had a very WTF making conversation with a friend and I had to share it. (May be slightly paraphrased for dramatic value.)

Me: So, I've been watching clips and fanvids of Dean and Castiel on YouTube. Dude, they're totally in love.

Friend: WHAT?! There's no way an angel could fall for a human. He doesn't experience emotions like that. Also, blasphemy.

Me: Whatever. Uriel told Dean that Castiel likes him, and he totally meant like likes him.

Friend: Do not throw Hey Arnold references at me bitch. I just don't see it. I don't think even Supernatural would go so far as having an Angel of the Lord do the nasty with a human.

Me: But, but! Castiel saved Dean from Hell. What about all the long soulful looks? What about, about confessions and Dean crying in front of him and the tire iron with Alistair? What about how Castiel believes in Dean, in a way no else ever has? WHAT THE FUCK ABOUT HOW CASTIEL FORSOOK HEAVEN FOR DEAN? HUH? HUH?

Friend: ...

Me: Um.

Friend: You're a bitch, you know that right?

Me: Well...

Friend: (very reasonably. kind of) How can Dean be fucking Castiel, when he's obviously fucking Sam?

Me: *facepalm* So, you have a problem with an Angel fucking a human, but not brothers fucking each other?

Friend: Well, no, not really, I'm just a hardcore Sam/Dean fanbitch.

Me: *still facepalming* What is my life?

Friend: *wails* And now you've put all these stupid Dean/Castiel ideas in my head and I hate you.

Me: I hate you more.

The writing and dialogue in ATWT makes me wince and facepalm so much nowadays that not even Van and Jake can salvage it. So for now I'm on hiatus...at least until someone on that writing team gets fired.

I finally watched CoE, and yes I still want RTD to DIAF. (Is my bitterness showing? It is? Oh, just let me tuck that back in...) and yes, I still want RTD to get bent. (Sorry, that's as tucked in as it gets.)

I saw the episode of NCIS today titled Twilight wherein Kate Todd dies. Then I watched it again and do you know how many times she references herself dying in that episode? About six hundred thousand.

Also SWAK was on today and I squealed and flailed in a very undignified manner throughout, oh, three quarters of it total. YOU DO NOT FOOL ME GIBBS. YOUR OBVIOUS PANIC AND DESPERATION IS OBVIOUS. REDUNDANT BUT IT NEEDED SAID TWICE.

Script prompted by a bout of temporary insanity. )


Whoa, this totally wasn't supposed to turn into an impromptu script writing session. Maybe I missed my calling?

ETA: While I'm on the subject of NCIS, I have a question for anybody who watches: Who do you like better, Kate or Ziva? Personally I liked Kate better, though I do find Ziva funny and she has her moments of total adorableness.

Holy Shit, I can't believe it's taken me this long to actually write something here. My only defense is that I'm shit at keeping journals. No, seriously, I have approximately twelve thousand stationary journals that I've written on, maybe, one page each. My life just isn't usually interesting enough to write about, even to me.

So, basically my whole life is fandom. That might be sad to other people, but it works just swell for me.

Er, I'm importing from LJ right now, but hopefully I'll make lots of friends here and post lots of entries and stuff. Maybe fic once in a while.

In other words, happy blogging XDDDDDD

ETA: Also, thank you so much [personal profile] chaosraven  for the code. I really appreciate it and I'm totally sending virtual hugs and kisses your way for forever

So there's this really fucked up HBO special on right now about Mississippi and their proms.

Did you know that in some places the fucking proms are segregated? As in schools have a white prom and a black prom?


(No 4srs, it's not even funny.)

Even if you hate Michael Moore, everyone should watch this.

Witnessing the behavior and ickyness of Phelps and his merry band of losers made me a little ill, but mostly this video made me laugh and celebrate the awesomeness that people are capable of in the face of adversity. (It makes me sick that WBC are going to be protesting at the AI concert, though. I'M SENDING LOTS OF LOVE AND POSITIVE ENERGY YOUR WAY ADAM BB!!!!!)

Okay, here we go.

I live in rural, bumfuck Kentucky. No matter what people might think, this does not automatically connote rotted teeth, hillbillies, or, especially, complacency. Yeah, it's boredom city here, but people are always finding things to do. Kids, especially, find things to do, and these things are often Trouble with a totally intentional capital T. The most worrisome and prevalent of these troublemakings is fighting. Some kid talks to a "taken" girl, her boyfriend talks shit, it gets back to the shitee, who ends up wanting to fight the shitter, which was the shitter's intention the whole time. There's also joyriding, soirees in the woods complete with underage drinking, drug dealing, and accidental burns. If they want legal fun, they have to drive 30 to 45 minutes, and even then it's a choice between bowling alley and movie theatre. Yeah, for serious. Anything else is a lot farther away, and simply not economically feasible on a regular basis. So.

I want to open a 21 and under nightclub. Yeah. NEK. I want to give these kids something to do, somewhere to go that doesn't have to involve alcohol, or fighting, or fucking up. I want to offer them options and choices. It could be the place they go to unwind, or simply to have fun without parents looking over their shoulder. (I will, of course, be looking over their shoulders instead xD) We live in a dry county, so even if I wanted to open an adult nightclub (which I emphatically don't) I couldn't.

I just...I want so much for these kids to stop fucking up. Fucking up their lives, fucking up their parents' life expectancies by worrying and stressing them, and fucking up the community because their ideas of fun come at a pretty hefty price to it. I want to give them something else, something better. I think this could do it. It could be a way for them to act like the adults they want to be right now without sacrificing their youth to do it. As for me, this is a job I could do for a lifetime and never be bored.

Okay, so I fully believe that the creators of fanfiction archives should be able to say what types of fics are allowed in them. If they only want slash fanfiction, okay that's fine, and if they only want het that's fine too. I actually prefer my fic archives to be segregated in this way.

But don't disrespect by being all "No slash here because I don't enjoy reading stories that aren't canon/where the characters aren't in character."

Bitch, what?

Okay, for one: Shawn Spencer is like the most metrosexual television character in the history of ever. So metrosexual, as a matter of fact, that my grandmother asked if he was supposed to be gay (Er, "queer" was her exact wording if you wanna get technical).

For two: fuck canon. Every single fucking time you start typing out a fanfiction you're taking the characters out of themselves. Fanfiction is not canon, hence the name. Every single little thing you make up in your fic is diverging from canon so don't go acting all superior just because your fucking up of canon doesn't involve homosexuality. Putting a girl with a guy in a fic when they aren't together in canon is slashing too, you know.

I don't object to what this fanfiction archivist is doing, but I do disagree with her reason for doing it, and that's just as bad--maybe worse. I don't read fic on that site because everytime I get directed there I become a little nauseous. It feels like I'm betraying myself if I even entertain the thought of reading one of the fics archived there, which is a real shame because apparently there's some stellar genfic there that isn't archived anywhere else. I don't have very many principles, but I stick to the ones I do have.

I'm just saying.

I'm experiencing a horrid little bitch of a writers block right now and nothing I do seems to be able to alleviate it. I've tried brainstorming, sitting down with a pencil and paper, new fandoms but nothing seems to be working.

Any suggestions on what I can do?

So, really, I was done with HP long before the 7th book came out. But, as happens with me, I'm circling back around and flirting with the fandom again. And I realize that I've never really given my two cents about anything related to Harry Potter. So here we go. What I hope to be a series of my own opinions regarding the books, beginning with The Malfoys.

Do you know what immediately comes to mind whenever I think of the Malfoys? It's not that they're bad or evil. It's not that they're Slytherin. It's not their looks.

It's love.

Whenever I think of the Malfoys I think of love. They love each other savagely and all-encompassingly and selfishly--to hell with anyone else. This was my most clear impression throughout the sixth and seventh books. They would and have done anything for each other.

Even with the unfair way Rowling treated Slytherins in general, (more on that tomorrow) I'm glad she didn't completely shit all over the Malfoys and left that aspect of their characters alone.

Looking at my journal you'd never know I was a deeply sensitive soul who tends to spend hours in heartfelt introspection....

Sorry, I couldn't keep a straight face any longer XD

Anyway, my point or whatever is that I don't really ever say much of consequence on this journal. I hardly ever talk about me or even real things. It's mostly fandom. Which is fine. It will probably continue to be that way, but I did want to take one entry to make about me and things I'm interested in outside of fandom. So, here we go.

I'm a music whore. I love it all; every type, genre, or whatever. However, I am a discerning music whore. I don't go downloading things willy nilly just because. A song has to resonate with me before I'll even consider actually owning it. It has to speak to me. Um, I don't like the Beatles and every time I say that people look at me like I've just thrown an infant off a balcony, but all of their songs are so  boring to me. Not one of them resonates, except possibly "Come Together." I do, however, adore John Lennon.

Movies aren't really my media of choice. I mean, I like them alright and sometimes there are movies that I really want to see, but it's rare that I find a movie that I'd ever want to see again. Usually, I'd rather get on the computer, read a book, or watch television rather than watch a movie.

I love MMORPG's more than any girl I know except maybe Tab. But she only likes one. I like several. Dofus is probably my favorite;  I like Flyff because, hello!, flying; WoW is pretty and fascinating even though I've never played it; Rappelz is GORGEOUS; Wakfu is brilliant, etc, etc.

I am, like, the antithesis of "ambitious." At least where "doing something with my life" is concerned. I figure, why spend half my life in school? I'm never going to have a family, so I really only need enough money to support myself. My bachelors is plenty for me--graduate school can bite me.

Well, there're a few things about me that don't have anything to do with fandom.

So, I've been pretty much wallowing in RPF lately, and I've decided that it's about time to go back to where my true interests lie: totally fictional fandoms. I haven't read fic in about two weeks and that's just about unheard of for me. The thing is, I got really bored with all my regular fandoms back in, like, February, but I feel as though this has been enough of a break. I miss them, but I'm having trouble deciding where to begin. In order to facilitate this desire to get back to my roots, I'm hunting up fanfiction memes to hopefully get me back into the spirit.

So, like, how bad is it on a scale from 1 to 10 that I kind of sort of really wanttoslashHunterandCasey? Like, it's kind of awful because this show already has a super awesome cannon gay couple and I am dissatisfied and feel the need to slash other people. WHY CAN I NEVER BE HAPPY WITH WHAT I HAVE?

So, apparently there has been a media frenzy since the finale about Adam's sexuality. People want him to "come out" and come out now. Now, I didn't feel one way or another about it beyond the fact that I believe that it's nobody's business. He can play coy for the rest of his life or fuck Kris some random guy over a table at a restaurant. But, now I find out that the whole matter has apparently been giving Perez Hilton heart palpitations and just generally making him very angry.


For serious? Anything that could potentially cause Perez Hilton to suddenly expire is totally fine with me. I hate him with the burning intensity of a thousand suns and the potent venom of a hundred thousand cobras. He fucked with someone in another of my fandoms and I loathe him.

So please baby. For the sake of Perez-haters everywhere. CONTINUE TO PLAY COY!

PS. there was something in this same article about Adam selling his outing to Rolling Stones...? Please confirm/deny? And if he is, in fact, doing so THAT IS SO TOTALLY AWESOME!!! BB's a business man, yes he is. That is so Adam, taking something like the complete media clusterfuck about his sexuality and capitalizing on it. Not to mention American, yeah? (*middle-finger* to everyone who says he wasn't "American" enough to win Idol. It doesn't get more American than profiting off of the stupidity of others.)
