Dear [livejournal.com profile] femslash12:

(Aside: GUYS IT IS FEMSLASH TIME AGAIN, MY FAVOURITEST FIC EXCHANGE IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE, LET US ALL REJOICE!)

I am really excited that you are my partner. I am confident that you have excellent taste, because we have matched on at least one of my favourite pairings in my favourite fandoms EVER, and I am super excited to read whatever you decide to write for me.

In broad, general terms, I like madcap adventures and truly ridiculous AUs (think: that one time everyone was a sexy vampire/cowboy/pirate/space-time traveler). If you want to write the story that is basically GUYS WHAT IF MYKA WAS A SAILOR AND HG WELLS HAD AN EYEPATCH AND THEY MADE EYES AT EACH OTHER ACROSS THE OCEAN, I would be THERE.

The characters I gravitate to in fiction are women who are grown up and excellent at their jobs and have a core of vulnerability but don't let it stop them from being fantastic at punching stuff in the face/blowing things up/quietly saving the universe, and I like them to stay that way in fic.

I like reading about kissing, and very consensual, enthusiastic sex, sometimes on tabletops. But I also like reading about friendly devotion that blurs that line into romantic devotion, and holding hands, and spooning, if the emotional notes are hit just right. My automatic, bulletproof squicks include: dramatic verbal declarations of love, any rom-com style romantic "misunderstanding", non-consensual sexual activity, babies, weddings, that thing where people "play doctor" and it's a "sexy physical exam" etc. Emphatically no thank you.

If you would like to read more about my thoughts on the specific fandoms I requested, they are under the cut. If not, dear writer, I hope you have fun and write something that suits your interests and style. I'm super excited to read it!

so many thoughts in mostly caps )

Love,

Heeeeey fandom. Oh man, has it been a long while since last we spoke.

SOME THINGS.

1) I tooootally went to FanExpo and got to introduce/hang out with [livejournal.com profile] noblealice and [livejournal.com profile] carmen_sandiego, which was delightful. We got to be in a room with Zoie Palmer, who used the phrase "bakey smurf" in a sentence, as well as the rest of the Lost Girl cast who remain RADIANTLY BEAUTIFUL in person, oh good grief. I remain half-convinced that Anna Silk is a cylon, HOW IS SHE THE AGE THAT SHE IS AND THAT LOVELY FACE-WISE.

(I am still plugging away at my Lost Girl rewatch. I feel like I need to do a post that is just OH MAN GUYS REMEMBER WHEN THIS HAPPENED ON SEASON 2 OF LOST GIRL, NO SERIOUSLY, THEY ACTUALLY MADE THIS AN EPISODE OF REAL TV.)

We also went to the Continuum panel, despite all of us having seen maybe half the show between us, and they kind of sold me on watching their show. Guys, it is actually, like, super good. Future Cop Rachel Nichols has a lot of feelings but also shoots things, and while I wish there were more women, I like what they're doing with the whole time travel concept. Also: Canada.

2) HEY SPEAKING OF TIME TRAVEL. I am watching Dr Who this season, mostly so that when they inevitably kill Amy Pond in a horrible flash of firey space-time death, I can be quietly outraged without getting spoiled for it. And then I can quietly hold a grudge against the next companion, who I'm sure will be perfectly lovely but won't be Amy Pond.

(I had this problem waaaay back in the day when Martha was a companion and they wrote her off. This show. Me + female characters. Etc.)

3) I remain really, super invested in Warehouse 13. Like, a lot.

cut! spoilers for season 4 through episode 4.06, 'fractures' )

ALSO I STILL WANT CLAUDIA TO RUN INTO KENZI SOMEWHERE IN TORONTO AND BECOME HER BFF.

4) THIS IS A PLACEHOLDER. HAVE WATCHED NEARLY ALL OF NIKITA (CW, Maggie Q & Evil Julie Cooper). PLANNING TO SCRAWL "NIKITA TOTALLY LOVES ALEX 4EVA" ALL OVER THE BATHROOM WALLS.

ALSO THIS ONE TIME THERE WAS AN EPISODE WHERE KENZI WAS AN EVIL RUSSIAN SEX-WORKER. ALSO ALSO THERE WAS ANOTHER EPISODE WHERE DOCTOR LAUREN WAS AN EVIL MAYBE ALSO RUSSIAN WEAPON BUYER.

1. Warehouse 13! I - I have a lot of emotions. A lot of them are Claudia-related emotions, and the rest are related to Myka and her hair and how fabulous she is, PLUS I have some theories about the thing that happened in the first episode of the season and What It Means. I want to discuss it, but I also want to wait and see where the show takes things. TORN.

2. Due to various reasons, I've been scheduled bizarre work hours recently and maaay have accidentally rewatched all of Season 4 of Buffy. WORLD WITHOUT SHRIMP. GILES IS A DEMON. I WEAR THE CHEESE, IT DOES NOT WEAR ME. Also - okay, first of all, I cannot believe it has been more than ten years since that season aired on TV, but also I have a lot of thoughts re: Willow and Tara. Because like, as a fourteen-year-old babyqueer watching that as it aired, I thought Willow and Tara were SO COOL and also SO SUBTLE AND MYSTERIOUS (possibly I also thought Buffy was THE BEST SHOW EVER MADE EVER). And looking back - god, what a bizarre way to depict a relationship. I know that at the time there were limits to what one could show in a TV program geared toward teens, but - like, they don't even kiss. At all. The entire season.

And now TV shows aimed at teens can have queer female characters have sex, in an actually-depicted way, and - I don't know. The future: different from the past and in many ways better!

Also, going back as an adult, I cannot stand Xander anymore. Wow.

3. At the end of the month I am going to Fan Expo, which is like SDCC except little and Canadian and everyone is super polite yet simultaneously has no boundaries. And once again, the cast of Lost Girl is doing a panel. I plan to nerd out hardcore and wait for an amount of time I shall not disclose after the fact to be in a room while Anna Silk and Zoie Palmer talk about things.

It's going to be fantastic/possibly it will go a lot like this a softer world comic. If any of you are in the area and planning to be there, let me know!

4. In light of this, possibly I want to try to rewatch alllll of Lost Girl between now and August 24. GUYS YOU SHOULD JOIN ME. THERE IS SO MUCH RIDICULOUS STUFF/I SORT OF LOVE THAT SHOW/MAGIC BEER BODYSWAP THEREFORE ALL YOUR ARGUMENTS ARE INVALID. MAGIC BEER BODYSWAP AND ALSO I AM WILLING TO BET MONEY THAT LAUREN SECRETLY MAINTAINS A CUPCAKE BLOG IN HER SPARE TIME.

(Someday I will have to do ficlet-amnesty and post the snippets of my Lauren-and-Dyson-get-drunk-and-agree-to-open-a-brewery story. I want that to be actual fanon, you guys. So much.)

YOU GUYS, WAREHOUSE 13. I HAVE SO MANY EMOTIONS.

SOME OF THEM ARE POSITIVE EMOTIONS BUT SOME OF THEM ARE CONCERNED EMOTIONS. COME DISCUSS ALL OF YOUR FEELINGS ABOUT THIS WITH ME.

SPOILERS FOR 4.01 IN THE COMMENTS.
pirateygoodness: (w13: myka has a girlfriend face & it's)
This is mostly a public service announcement. To those of you who have been all, "J! WATCH NIKITA. IT HAS WOMEN AND EVERYTHING EXPLODES, NO SERIOUSLY": you were right. I was wrong.

Basically, I have powered through the first two-thirds of season 1 in like a weekend, and I am 100% hooked. This is like 40% Maggie Q's fabulous legs, and 60% ALEX AND HER ADORING PUPPY EYES WHENEVER NIKITA DOES SOMETHING, because yes yes whatever they are both ostensibly straight, except that NO BOY WILL EVER MATCH THE BEAUTIFUL LOVE THEY HAVE FOR EACH OTHER.

It is wonderful. Also, everything really does explode.

(Also also, I have been enjoying the fact that it allows me to play EVEN MORE Toronto Guest Actor Bingo. Featured so far: that dude who was the Lich on Lost Girl/the mean fashion designer on Warehouse 13, and that dude who was the bounty hunter in the magic-beer-bodyswap ep of Lost Girl.)

Also also also: WAREHOUSE 13 COMES BACK TOMORROW! I am working late that day, and if anyone Tumblrs or LJs or tweets spoilers outside of a cut before Tuesday night, I will physically go to your home and give you a stern talking-to about manners.

vagueness!

!!!! GUYS LET US QUICKLY PROCESS THIS NEW WAREHOUSE 13 PROMO WHICH HAS JUST COME OUT.

You can view it (hopefully) here (not geolocked for Canada, should theoretically also be available on the SyFy site if you're American), and it contains a SPOILER for a THING.

HAI LIVEJOURNAL!

I am back from my vacation, which was a delightful adventure, and I got to hang out with [livejournal.com profile] deej who is lovely and not at all axe-murdery, mostly and a super-generous host. I also saw LOTS OF OLD THINGS, it was the best.

As a result of being on vacation, things I am behind on include: the last two episodes of Lip Service, the last three episodes of Community. Folks who spoiler me for these will make me very cross.

However, I maaaaybe brought the first season of Leverage with me on holiday and maaaaybe started watching it and maaaybe hypothetically I'm starting season two right now and BASICALLY, WHERE IS THE FIC WHERE PARKER IS SOPHIE'S LIVE-IN LOVER. THEY ARE SO GOOD WITH EACH OTHER AND I FEEL LIKE THEY WOULD BOTH BE EXCELLENT AT ODDLY AFFECTIONATE YET VERY CASUAL SEX, Y/Y/MFY? Tell me this is a thing that is real.

Also, asdlfkjs;kj; CAN WE DISCUSS THE STUFF THAT IS COMING OUT RE: WAREHOUSE S4? Because there are some spoilers through the end of S3 and for S4 preview stuff. )

Anyway. In conclusion, may we please talk about this at length, flist? I've missed you so.

et cetera.

Thoughts I Have Thought About Comic Books Lately
- Batwoman. some spoilers )

- I am still a couple issues behind on everything else, which is sad, but someday I will catch up. I believe in me.

Thoughts I Have About Lost Girl
- Okay really I just wanted an excuse to link to this interview excerpt, in which Anna Silk confirms that there is "definitely" more Bo and Lauren coming up, and my little heart grows three sizes.

- Related to my thoughts on the matter, I have written some fic.
Put A Name To Someone Else's Sigh, Bo/Lauren, Lauren/Nadia, Bo/Lauren/Nadia, R-ish
(LJ | AO3)

kissing this and that of you, Bo/Lauren, NC-17, written for the Fanworkstravaganza.
"Do you trust me?" (LJ | AO3)


- There is still a little over a week to write stuff for the [livejournal.com profile] bo_lauren Winter Fanworkstravaganza, if that's your jam. :D? :DDDDD?

Thoughts I Have About Warehouse 13
- I have finally reached a point where I am emotionally ready to rewatch Season 3. It is giving me a lot of emotions, but I think - and I am only up to "The 40th Floor" - that watching it while knowing that This Season Will Have An Arc and where the arc is going is actually making me appreciate the non-Joanne-Kelly's-face-related parts of it a lot more.
pirateygoodness: (w13: myka has a girlfriend face & it's)
Dear Yuletide Gift Person:

Hi! I'm already excited that you're here, because I cannot BELIEVE that you're devoting your time and hard work and creative energy into writing a story for ME. I bet it'll be just awesome.

under the cut )

So. There you have it. If you're not the kind of person who likes tons of detail about the things that I enjoy, that's honestly fine. Write the story you think you'll write the best and enjoy writing the most, and I'm sure I'll love it.

Happy November and December,
[personal profile] pirateygoodness
pirateygoodness: mine. (lostgirl: aced the class on pretty hair)
Happy Canadian Thanksgiving, internet!

1) SO MUCH TURKEY. SO MUCH PIE. It was surprisingly tiring. Four more days until vacation, I am practically weeping with anticipation.

2) Still not over the Warehouse 13 finale. I want to watch it again, but I am still upset from the first time, so I am rewatching the happy episodes of this season and working my way up to it. DEVASTATING, GUT-WRENCHING EMOTION: BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE SHOW THAT ALSO FEATURED MAGICAL BODYSWAPPING, AND STUNT-CASTED SIMON AND KAYLEE. WHO WOULD HAVE GUESSED.

3) Also watching: Fringe, Community, Castle. I continue to have thoughts on these shows that range from all-lowercase Concerns (Fringe) to all-caps OH, SHOW/YOUR ACTORS CONTINUE TO HAVE GREAT HAIR CONGRATS. (Castle)

4) I wrote fic! I know this will shock and appall the ENTIRE INTERNET but it involves Bo and Lauren and how they like like each other.

Come Stand A Little Bit Closer, Bo/Lauren, PG
That first night, Lauren sleeps on the couch. Spoilers for episode 2.05


(Guys: I am at the stage of fannish appreciation where I want to spend endless LJ threads discussing how cute they would be together and how they need to hook up like yesterday. I also need to discuss how Kenzi is snippy at Lauren the way teenage kids get really rebellious when they're about to have a new stepmom, and how much I want the two of them to bond over their mutual appreciation for Bo/possibly this should involve science. And also all of the different ways I need Bo and Lauren to hook up this season, TOP OF MY LIST: A) ON A TABLE, B) IN THE WOODS, C) SOMEWHERE SUPER INAPPROPRIATE WHILE THEY'RE DOING ~FIELD WORK.

Apparently we do all of that on Tumblr now, but WHATEVER, I'M GONNA BE OLD-FASHIONED and keep it real on LJ.)

5) In related-to-Lost-Girl news, apparently Aaron Ashmore has an arc this season. in case you feel like that's a spoiler )

6) Also, comic books? I enjoyed Huntress #1 very much, but would like to know when Helena will be hooking up with Dinah.
pirateygoodness: (w13: myka has a girlfriend face & it's)
OKAY GUYS, HERE WE GO. I have split the episode into two picspams: one to recap all the stuff from ~the present~, and one for the stuff that happened at a time period where perhaps there were petticoats, because I have a lot to say about both parts and things were getting kind of unwieldy.



spoilers for warehouse 13 3.05 )

FEEL FREE TO DISCUSS THIS AT LENGTH. Coming whenever I have time: the rest of this picspam. I got carried away with the caps again.
pirateygoodness: (w13: myka has a girlfriend face & it's)
Guys, that was - and I don't say this lightly - the single queerest thing Warehouse 13 has ever done. I am almost incoherent with enthusiasm. HEY [personal profile] deej AND [profile] robotjen, GET ON THIS.

Anyway. I want to do an enormous post with a hundred thousand pictures where I analyze everything in detail, but I am very busy with work right now, so here is a placeholder where I freak out about how good this is in case I don't get a chance to do a picspam before the weekend.

spoilers for warehouse 13 3.05: idk the gay one with the trumpet. mostly all-caps. )

IN CONCLUSION, JESUS FUCK THIS WAS AWESOME. I LOVE EVERYONE IN THIS BAR EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS SHOW RIGHT NOW.
pirateygoodness: (Default)
Warehouse 13 is back! My sweet, dorky, awkward show, with Myka and her amazing gay shirt collection, and Pete (who has grown on me, but only when he's with Myka), and Claudia and everyone else, omg.

This season there is also Agent Ashmore (sorry, ~Steve Jinks), who is apparently a thing? I find him hilarious and endearing, in a bland, Ashmore sort of way. Time shall tell, but I am pretty optimistic.



warehouse 13 3.01: . spoilers under the cut. )

Anyway. Thank you for accompanying me on that magical journey through the episode. I am so thrilled to have this show back in new episodes. There is just something about it - I love it sort of the way I love Seeker, for its earnest, balls-out geekery and delightful found-family dynamics. If you are not a person who watches it yet, you totally should be.
pirateygoodness: (Default)
So, Warehouse 13 starts again on July 11, and I was like, "man, self, that's pretty soon! Remember how pretty all of those people are?"

Then I did some online digging, and found this promo picture, and I can't remember if I saw it before when this picture made the rounds or if it really is new, but I am ~rediscovering it~ today, and it is like my pants and my heart are on fire at the same time.

cut for picture, not-really-spoilery for 3.01 )

IN CONCLUSION: LADIES AND TELEVISION. I AM PRETTY STOKED.
pirateygoodness: (Default)
Let's talk about fandom, you guys. It's been a while.

1) Awesome things are happening, fandom-wise? My [community profile] femslash11 assignment is going to be super fun, and [community profile] femslash_today is having a holiday weekend porn battle. You should all go write some stories! I am currently choosing to spend my time writing fanfiction about Lauren and Bo and some strippers, which - if anyone wants to beta that or talk it out with me, please let me know?

2) No, seriously. I need a Lost Girl beta. Volunteers would be awesome.

3) Can we please discuss the new season of True Blood? Namely, some spoilers for 4.01 and 4.02? ) I forgot how awesomely over-the-top this show is.

4) Warehouse 13 starts July 11! That's like, really soon! Remember how pretty all of those people are? And how this show is ridiculous but adorable, and also how Myka is going to look like this in the season premiere and I WILL BE OVER HERE IN MY CORNER QUIETLY DYING AT HOW HOT SHE IS?

not-really-spoilery promo for 3.01 )
