More HP Randomness

Wednesday, April 30th, 2008

I was sure I had some more HP/BZ stories around somewhere, and possibly even some of the old school Blaise-or-maybe-Blaize-is-a-girl-turned-boy-turned-girl stories, but alas, I couldn’t find any in my story folders. I did find this: five times lily evans never kissed severus snape, by crimsonclad, which is a great LE/SS story, because Lily seriously deserves […]

Why I love the HP fandom…

Tuesday, April 29th, 2008

Reason #593: Here’s an author (Vorabiza)who takes essentially the same situation in every story, and makes it work with four different pairings. Wow. That is the beauty of the HP fandom. 1. Renewed Faith (HP/SS) This one skips right to the aftermath of all that pesky fighting. 2. Risks (HP/BZ) What was up with Blaise […]

Doctor Who, Torchwood, Sarah Jane… did I miss anyone?

Saturday, April 26th, 2008

1. A Picspam Retelling of Doctor Who series 27 through a Doctor/Rose/Jack OT3 lens, by jeanne. Image heavy, but hilarious. (“”Sure!” Rose says, not even needing to think about it, because who wouldn’t want to have threeway sex with the Doctor and some other hot guy?”) 2. Just saw the Doctor Who ep where Donna’s […]

Let’s compare…

working =better than: unemployed days off =better than: working spending paycheck on new clothes =better than: spending money on fixing that funny noise my car makes when I turn left. or slow down, or speed up, or really any time the car is running “While You Were Sleeping” =better than: apparently, every other romantic comedy […]

Doctor Who & Co.

Friday, April 18th, 2008

Re: The Series 4 Pilot (first show, episode #1, whatever they’re calling it): Sad! Crying! Still, loved midshipman Alonzo (insert last name here — Frame? Frane? something like that). The shriek when he saw the hand in the door! Priceless! Also loved his miraculous healing abilities and the Tommy-in-the-Turbo-movie-parody style of first aid (“I’ve been […]

Fun amnesia stories, for no particular reason

Thursday, April 17th, 2008

1. Amnesiac, by Speranza Still, he’s wearing some sort of fatigues, so he’s somewhere all right, probably doing the same old, same old, and he’s sure it will all come back to him any second now. 2. The Life You Lead, by The Grrrl “Oh, right, we magically zapped away your memories.” Rodney said, rolling […]

Voting is now open, over at the SGA Kink Awards. You know, in case you were curious.

Bananas on the brain

Monday, April 14th, 2008

I watched the Torchwood episode “Out of Time” over the weekend (yes, from series one, and yes, I’m that behind). Ianto’s “Of course, bananas are much more interesting” line made me laugh, and then made me think of Shawn using “banana” as a spelling bee word in Psych (“also, a delicious pudding”), and then made […]

“But Wait, There’s More!”

Sunday, April 13th, 2008

Because my favorite segments on “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” were always when Colin and (anyone else) did those fake infomercials (“We’ve packaged 18 songs on 10 discs!” “But wait, there’s more!”), finding an SGA story where John and Rodney do late night infomercials was funny in new ways. Is there a story where the […]

By the numbers

Saturday, April 12th, 2008

Days since I’ve posted to my blog: 4 *is ashamed* Number of files in my “Stories” folder: 9,372 *is shocked* Number of files in the sub-folder “Stargate”: 3,180 (but some of them might be duplicates; sometimes I save things even when I think I already have them, just because it’s easier than going and checking) […]
