Supernatural, episode “3rd from the end of season 5”

Friday, April 30th, 2010

I missed last night’s episode, because I was out at dinner for work. *Andrea filled me in once I got home about all the pertinent details: 1. Did any angels appear / reappear / experience miraculous resurrections? (Answer: No.) 2. Did they kill anything? (Since what I really wanted to know was whether they’d killed […]

Fic Recs FTW

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

I was planning to post these last night, but then I accidentally logged myself out of and then couldn’t remember the password. Yeah, it was that kind of night. Anyway, some stories! SGA nostalgia week continues! The Surly Bonds of Earth, by Mad_Maudlin SGA, post-show, some of Atlantis’ residents decide they’d much rather be back […]

“What was I thinking?”

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

Sometimes my real life feels just like fanfic. As in, The Very Secret Diaries… Atlantis Style! fanfic. I spent the day (my day off) writing a “self-evaluation” for work. Writing a self-evaluation after doing four other people’s regular evaluations, which use exactly the same form? Not that fun, really. I’m getting really tired of that […]

SPN rec! (Good Omens xover)

Sunday, April 25th, 2010

I haven’t read Good Omens, but starandrea has, and that’s good enough for me. (Plus, it’s not a hard fandom in terms of picking up the crossover basics.) Celestial Red Cross, by icarus_chained SPN/Good Omens xover, Crowley and Aziraphale pick up strays, with a surprising supporter “Aziraphale, you idiot,” he said, shaking his head, carefully, […]

I have but one fic…

Saturday, April 24th, 2010

You know how many Tron fics there are at Archive of Our Own? One. On the plus side, it’s a good one, and I’d actually read it before (it was a Yuletide 2009 story). I still enjoyed reading it again post-movie-viewing. It makes a lot more sense now. Set (Me&You) = The Result of (Try […]

Movie Review: Tron

Saturday, April 24th, 2010

(Important Note to Anyone Who Wants To Hear The Dialogue in This Movie: I watched the dvd on my computer, and it tried to make me use something called the “InterActual Player” — some kind of Disney-branded program. The sound quality was *so bad* that I had no idea I was supposed to be able […]

So I hear there’s a meme out there…

Saturday, April 24th, 2010

So I was thinking about SPN 5.19 (the one with Gabriel), and I thought, “Hey, I hope a lot of people are writing fix-it fics for this!” I’ve already read most of these ideas, but it seemed like a fun plan to gather them all in one spot — a reminder, of sorts. After all, […]

“Don’t mock my world turtle!”

Thursday, April 22nd, 2010

Yeah, I just really wanted to do a reaction post with that title. Um, SPN rocked the unexpectedness? Sneaky!Gabriel is sneaky? Lucifer is one creepy SOB? (I was all about the cognitive dissonance in this ep — I haven’t actually seen any Lucifer episodes previous to tonight’s, but I *have* read all of entangled_now’s Sam/Lucifer […]

Planet Party Day: 40 years & still no dinosaurs!

Happy Earth Day! Or rather… Happy Earth Day!

Movie Review: Sherlock Holmes (the joke one)

Wednesday, April 21st, 2010

Apparently, this is a thing. The film studio The Asylum looks at big movies and then, well, rips them off. (They call it a “tie-in,” though the more popular phrase is “mockbluster.”) Such is the case with “Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes”. Netflix lists the dvd as having a “Very Long Wait.” Luckily, it’s […]
