Okay, I have a massive post all typed up that I will post later (for out-of-date things, I have to admit), but a) thank you so much for the adorable lemur, anonymous! IT'S LIKE I HAVE A LITTLE PET SHOP IN MY USERINFO ♥♥♥! and b) Panis Rahl? that's his name? Really? He's called Penis Rahl? Oh, Legend of the Seeker, you genuinely have the most ridiculous names I have ever heard. (I only found out this today when I went to look up the name for Zedd/Panis searching reasons.

Also I really want a Creator vid set to 'Creator' by Santogold.

Wait a minute (if by a miute you mean TWO DAYS, where is my brain), I have just thanked the anonymous giver of delightful puppies in an f-locked entry, thus managing to fail completely at thanking people.

HERE IS MY THANKS, MOST WONDERFUL ANONYMOUS GIFT-GIVER: I HAVE A PUPPY? LIVEJOURNAL DIDN'T TELL ME I HAVE A PUPPY! Admittedly I haven't checked my gmail for about a month, but still, these things should be in the LJ inbox. Thank you so much, anonymous puppy-giver! YOU ARE THE BESTESTEST, I HAVE NEVER HAD A VIRTUAL GIFT BEFORE ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥!

Asjdsk I HAVE ANOTHER ONE! Thank youuuuu ♥!!!! YOU ARE ALSO THE BESTESTEST, IT IS DELIGHTFULLL. I keep trying to figure out if it's some kind of ~subtle message~ for me to recycle.

Possibly I will post something of substance (and significantly less awesome) later. In the meantime, omg look at my new icon. Angelll so pretty.

L'il Susy, sociopath y/n? I love how they've made all the pro-gay rights people hideous and the pro-homophobia people adorable and yet STILL I am creeped out by Bigoted Kid #01 and Susy The Sociopath. I mean, they just remind me of Fred Phelps ):.

Obvs they're victims of indoctrination, particularly Bigoted Kid #01, but still, creepy like creepsters.

(I always used to think Chick Tracts were like, tracts aimed at teenage girls, all trying to use teenage slang and being irritatingly friendly and suchlike.)

Lol Joey is too dumb to know the difference between A REALLY OFFENSIVE JOKE and a less offensive jokeCollapse )

I want to write SO MUCH FIC about the Rule Of Not Touching in m/f/m threesomes.

I REALLY WANT A PUPPY OKAY. Do not read the comments they will RUIN IT. WHY ARE YOU SUCH A DICK, YOUTUBE? You do not deserve puppies. (This is also, incidentally, my comment. It should have been 'Can I steal your puppy and keep it FOREVER OMG?', but YouTube's MALICE meant not.)

D-Does anyone want one of those coupons for a low-price paid account?

I am posting this separately because I felt the last entry was too long. Also, it occurs to me that I may not have replied to a comment you made because I enjoy not checking my e-mails LIKE AN IDIOT.

Very minor spoilers for the Doctor Who autumn special Waters of MarsCollapse )

Also I have been watching Misfits. Spoilers for the first episode.Collapse )

Since we're discussing -isms, would you agree that True Blood and/or the depiction of the bus driver in Enchanted are racist?

I've also been reading Twilight. It is a bit like reading my old writing, in that my standards are so low I am delighted any time anything is less than awful. Also I am wondering if we are meant to assume that Bella genuinely does like people/want to be accepted, and her bitter/sarcastic thoughts are just a way of covering it up. Cause, uh, I do that.

I am also wondering whether I would have adored it and had it as one of my favourite books if I'd read it before hearing about how jaw-droppingly awful it is. Because I am such a sucker for failicious supernatural romance.

Also, hmm, I very rarely find myself thinking while reading published fiction 'hey, that's a great line' or 'wow, what a turn of phrase' but I think it NEAR-CONSTANTLY when reading fiction. Hmm hmm hmm.

Hey! I went to Amsterdam! I did not mention this because I was fairly sure I would die in a plane crash! Shhh, I am rational.

Things I have discovered: Gwen/Lancelot can be called Glance. I SO ADORE TERRIBLE PAIRING NAMES THAT MAKE SENSE. You know their love is all about longing glances! YOU KNOW IT.

(Rigsby/Van Pelt could be Ran! Er...their job involves running?)

I am very sorry if I owe you a review! Our computer has just crashed and I am using my Dad's laptop to post this! Also, still trying to avoid the Internet.

Vague spoilers for the way things have changed in Merlin Season 2Collapse )

I also watched the finale of Legend of the Seeker! I am sure there have been fewer Richard/Kahlan kisses than was implied from all the icons I saw! But anyway, it was very good. Spoilers for the finale and other episodes.Collapse )

Also I am watching True Blood and I cannot believe people do not like Sookie! SOOKIE IS AWESOME, PEOPLE. That, and Dollhouse. Ahem. Victor and Sierra are adorable, okay!

Spoilers for Merlin 2x03, The Nightmare Begins and the preview for 2x04Collapse )

Mini-mini-mini-meta: Spoilers for Merlin 2x02, The Once and Future Queen (hello best title ever!) and 1x05, LancelotCollapse )

(I would really like a Merlin fic that explored how Arthur/Merlin and Arthur/Gwen can co-exist. REALLY. LIKE.)

Also! From now on I will not be on here some days as I am trying to LIVE WITHOUT THE INTERNET.

Spoilers for Merlin 2x01, the title of which is maybe a bit spoileryCollapse )

Speaking of Merlin, I am v. fond of calling Morgana 'bloody Morgana' when writing from Arthur's pov/when Arthur is speaking. Idek what that is. Ilher with all my heart, honest. (No, really, I do. She and Gwen are the awesomest. They need to team up and forge a league of awesome. Merlin and Arthur can join if Arthur promises not to talk.)

Also, I have the DESPERATE AND INEXPLICABLE URGE to make Morgana call Arthur 'little brother'. Never mind that according to spin-off book canon Morgana and Arthur are the same age (although calling someone who's only slightly younger than you 'little brother' is a lot more annoying and also something Morgana might do), she's never called him that in the show. WHAT IS WITH YOU, BRAIN?

And this video proves that, much like ALL THE CAST, Katie and Angel have the most adorable relationship ever. All the laughing! And eventually hugging ♥! Who would win a fight between Gwen and Morgana?

(At this point, I'd have to say Morgana. Ilu, Gwen, but for all your skill with a spade, Morgana used to regularly beat Arthur. Unless he was kind of useless as a kid and had to be moulded into the ultimate killing machine he is now? THAT WOULD BE REALLY CUTE. Fic of tiny!Morgana and Arthur with Morgana alternately loling at and awkwardly comforting him over his lack of skillz (with like, a rate of 80/20 mocking/comforting). I WANT THIS. But it is kind of THE OPPOSITE OF KINK and thus I cannot request it on the kink meme.)

SO, IT IS CONFESSION TIME YET AGAIN: I am genuinely terrified of Derren Brown. When I started seeing those adverts he made for The Event I was all 'augh augh he is screwing with my mind BACKTRACKING BACKTRACKING why is everything backwards WHAT IS HE DOING my miiind'.

I am convinced he is somehow putting thoughts in my head through the TV. I am a little worried that he might turn me into a criminal or something. I am seriously considering not letting my family watch the 'glued to the sofa' thing just in case he makes everyone who watches have MURDEROUS RAGE and go on a rampage like in Spoiler when spoilers happened, which also terrified me.

The funny thing is, I used to watch his show (mostly for the 'finding out how he does things' aspect rather than his creepy adorable/hot appeal) all the time.

The depressing thing is although he won't get me through the TV, he will get me through rionaleonhart's journal when she posts about the show DDD:

In other news, I watched Legend of the Seeker 1x08 Denna and 1x09 Puppeteer, and I will post about them if/when I find my notes about better ways to put 'ridiculous face closeness that ALWAYS HAPPENS WHENEVER THERE IS ENMITY ON TV. And if it doesn't always happen then it should'. If I can't find them you'll just have to put up with my bad phrasing, y'all.

ALSO, Confessions of a Shopaholic is NOTHING LIKE the novel plotwise. I am slightly appalled, although I haven't watched it yet. YES I READ CHEESY CHICK-LIT AND WATCH CHEESY CHICK FLICKS. WHAT OF IT?

Um um um something else. Why are only dentists allowed pistols? What aspect of being a dentist requires a pistol? I WOULD HOPE NONE. Discuss. (Whoops, vets, not dentists.)
but you're the apple of my eye anyway
So, I am watching Legend of the Seeker. I am up to the seventh episode, and I am going to say NO SPOILERS PLEASE even though I am spoilered all to hell for spoilers for idk what episode. I guess up to the finale to be sure?Collapse )

OH I LOVE HOW CHEESY IT IS. It reminds me of these terrible Lord of the Rings rip-offs we had to write when I was about eleven. The stupid names! SpoilersCollapse )

Also, The Mentalist documentary on Patrick Jane/Simon Baker (lolll, blondest pairing ever) (The Mentalist: Revealed) made me ship unexpectedlybritish!Owain/Simon. "I've literally just told you I love him!" OH HEARTS.

Things I have learned today: frozen yoghurt and ice cream are exactly the same thing. At least if we are going by ALL THE FIVE SENSES.

Spoilers for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood PrinceCollapse )

Today I have learnt that bone china is called bone china because it is made from bones. HELLO MOST HORRIFYING DISCOVERY EVER.

Also I have been thinking about evolution recently. I was MOST DISTRESSED to discover that Intelligent Design is not, as I believed, hardcore evidence in DNA of some sign that the DNA was a result of a creator (I-I don't know what specifically I was thinking. Something that would probably be referred to as a 'signature'? OR MAYBE JUST AN INSTRUCTION BOOKLET IDEK). SADFACE.

DDD: Guys I voted for Zoe and Uhura in this because I thought they would have less votes but I was wrooong. Do you think we should post to i_love_donna and marriedonmars about it? DONNA NEEDS MORE VOTES.

Also, I am KIND OF SHOCKED that debunkingstraight and debunkingable DO NOT EXIST. It is surprising to me. Particularly debunkingstraight, given that gay rights is kind of a big deal on LJ.

EDIT: Lies! debunkingstrght exists! Alas, debunkingable still doesn't.

It's probably very late for this sort of thing, but here are some links about Iran.


(Sorry this post is so late.)
