birthday + meme + pm + stuff  
1. Happy birthday to inthekeyofd! ♥



I hope you have the best possible day and the most awesome next year! ♥ Possibly filled with as much Frusciante as one can stand. ;) And if you want to prompt me I'll see what I can do. ;) Happy birthday again!

2. How do you deal with more than fifty mosquito bites? Because I lost the count at fifty. :/ I'm seriously thankful I don't have any mosquito related allergies *shudder*.

3. Ship meme stolen from around.

Six ships you're into right now. [ps: probably most of these are pairings I'm into on default and not necessarily now, but I also was trying to do different fandoms.]

1. Jack/Boone (Lost) [I'm always into J/B *cough*)
2. Aziraphale/Crowley (Good Omens)
3. Dean/Castiel (SPN)
4. Roland/Eddie (The Dark Tower)
5. David/Keith (Six Feet Under)
6. Maurice/Alec (Maurice)

Three ships you liked, but don't anymore. [there seriously should be an option for 'ships you liked a lot and now canon killed them but you liked them anyway' though]

7. Charlie/Claire (Lost)
8. Eddie/Susannah (The Dark Tower)
9. Sawyer/Juliet (Lost) *hides from rotten tomatoes*

Three ships you never liked.

10. Kate/Sawyer and Jack/Kate (Lost)
11. Jason/Lyla (FNL)
12. Nate/Lisa (SIx Feet Under)

Two ships you're curious about, but don't actually ship.

13. Richard/Jacob (Lost)
14. Sam/Castiel (SPN)

Why do you dislike #11 so much?
Considering that I didn't see from half S2 onwards, so I'm stopping there: because he was my favorite character and I hated her guts. I never could stand her, she made my head hurt, in S2 her conversion was making me want to headdesk and I just couldn't see them together. So I was very, very happy when they broke up. ;)

Who is someone you know that ships #14?

Uh, elise_509 does!

What would be your ideal scenario for couple #3?

Well, my secret and very blaspheme dream would be what Misha said at some con aka Dean, Castiel and Sam retiring in the country (this he said) and having threesome sex for the rest of eternity (this, he didn't say). This is obviously not going to happen, so well.. canon-speaking the problem is that for how much I'd love for the Apocalypse to be averted and then for Castiel to fall and stay with Dean, my overwhelming Jimmy love doesn't want the poor guy to either die or be trapped inside his own body for eternity. Probably it'd be like in some fic I read where basically Castiel fell and got another body which was identical to Jimmy's. And then he'd stick around and Sam would spend his time rolling his eyes. ;) Or if we really want to be masochist, everyone dies AND goes to Heaven. As long as they aren't as miserable as canon makes them...

Which is your favorite moment for couple #1?

THE PENS, OMG THE PENS. WHEN BOONE GOES WITH THE HANDFUL AND SAYS HE DIDN'T KNOW WHICH ONE WAS GOING TO WORK BEST and Jack is completely starstruck.

Even though that bit in Do No Harm when Boone asks Jack to let him die and Jack answers that it's their best chance is very close.

How long have you been following couple #6?

Following is completely the wrong word since it's a freaking book pairing, but since I was sixteen.

What's the story with #8? What made you stop liking them/caring?

The ending of the seventh book. Shit, I loved Susannah and I liked Eddie/Suze just fine, but when

MAJOR FAT SPOILERS FOR THE SEVENTH BOOK




he told her that he was going to wait for her in the afterlife as he was freaking dying and then not only she does what he'd have never done and leaves Roland before reaching the Tower BUT ends up in the other reality AND gets together with the Eddie DOUBLE which looks like him but is NOT him and especially not the one who told her that... sorry but for me it died there and it kinda cheapened the pairing for the whole series. Which sucks because I used to really love it. But that, oh, how that pissed me off.




END SPOILERS

You have the power to make one ship nonexistent. Choose from #10 or #12.

Oh, Kate/Sawyer and Jack/Kate. Indeed. I can stand Nate/Lisa even if I don't like it, but triangle het pairings? No thanks. Even if I guess that Lost wouldn't be Lost without the triangle, but the way they handled it since mid S3? No thanks.

Which ship do you prefer #2 or #4?

Er. Oh God. Hard, but... Roland/Eddie. God, I love that ship so much, it compares just with a couple others and for how much I love A/C, they're a too new addition. ;)

What interests you about #14?

It's intriguing and I think it can be incredibly well done, if done right. Dean/Castiel is obviously the most obvious pairing, but if you think about it, Sam was the one believing in angels first and I don't think that they stressed it enough on the show. It makes a wonderful love/hate pairing if you look it in a certain way, and considering all of Sam's issues, it could also make an awesome h/c pairing. I really like the idea. I just wish there was more around and that I had some nice bunny to write them.

Why did you stop liking #7?

Because S4 Claire happened and because while in S1 it really was adorable, then it became too one-sided (it was clear that Charlie was the most involved one) but it still was cute, then I just liked it, but then the complete lack of reactions from Claire in S4 apart from the first episode and the completely careless way they handled the repercussions of Charlie's death completely made me disinterested.

Did your waning interest in #9 kill your interest in the show?

Nope. Well, actually, the problem is... I liked the idea of Sawyer/Juliet before it happened. I thought it was an interesting match and they could have made a very good couple, but then it happened and I never was really sold on it. Apart from the fact that it really, really bothered me that they completely skipped the actual development, then... IDK but I just couldn't fully buy it and then while during The Incident I loved the acting in the scene where she fell down, I still couldn't really ship them. Also, if next year it becomes the starting point for TRIANGLE AGAIN! and we find out that Sawyer was really in love with Kate throughout it'll be just cheap and cruel and I don't know if I'll like it. And anyway, my main het pairing was Jack/Juliet. *cough* That said, I'm still interested in Lost and surely a pairing I'm not sold on is not what will make me quit. Fuck, I didn't quit at once when Boone died, sincerely Sawyer/Juliet won't kill my interest in the show.

What’s a song that reminds you of #5?

David/Keith? Er, it's probably the only pairing of that bunch I never had songs for. I should think about it and get back to you.

If you could have any of these two pairings double-date, who would it be?

Er, I guess it means I choose two pairings to double date, right? Then absolutely Dean/Cas and Crowley/Aziraphale. You know Dean and Crowley would start having cargasms (neologism thanks to catoasapun, lol) and discussing the advantages of tapes over cds and the fact that Hell sucks a lot while Aziraphale and Castiel would complain about their boyfriends always talking about cars, then shake their heads over Heaven being worst than Earth and then have tea with biscuits together. ♥

Have #2 kissed yet?

No and I doubt they will since it's a book pairing, but if they had kissed no one would have even blinked.

Did #4 have a happy ending? If the show hasn't ended yet, do you think a happy ending is likely?

... er. Well.

BIG FAT SPOILERS FOR THE DARK TOWER VII (AGAIN)




On general, no. Because Eddie died in the middle of book VII and then there was that idiotic loop thing at the end and Roland got whammied back at the beginning so basically forgot everything about the seven previous books *shakes fist at King*, but... I have to say that considering everything, it had the best possible ending in itself. Because say what you want, but Eddie's last words were for Roland and he was the last person he did see and in the end Roland was the most important one for him. And differently from Suzie, Roland never had the awesome idea to forget the guy *rolls eyes*. And they had even half-kissed some one hundred pages before, so at least in the moment when it ended, it was the most decent ending I could have wished for if Eddie had to die. Also, no, I wouldn't have ever thought likely that King gave someone an happy ending *rolls eyes* and no, Susannah in that crap epilogue does not count.





What would make you start shipping #13?

Er, Jacob returning to life, I think.

If only one could happen, which would you prefer, #2 or #6?

Aziraphale/Crowley because Alec/Maurice already happened and it HAD A HAPPY ENDING! Though well, Aziraphale/Crowley is so canon that it just lacked the necessary kissing.

You have the power to decide the fate of #10. What happens to them?

Jack and Sawyer get together. Or something. Or Catch 22 and Eggtown and Something Nice Back Home never happen. Or something. Anyway, not what happened in canon.

Which of these ships do you love the most?

Er. Oh God. Well. It tears my heart to choose and Jack/Boone is a very close runner, but... Roland/Eddie. For how much I might hate King and how it ended and even if one of them was technically married, I never shipped anything so hard as I shipped them. And I think they're my most during ship since I started shipping them when I was... what, like, sixteen. I just loved their relationship so much and what I said regarding the ending just proves my point imo. They're my favorite ship and that's it. More or less.

4. Is LJ acting idiotic since yesterday for me only? I can't visualize half of the userpics, some pages load wrong and even the one to post is weird. WTF?

5. Dear my PM: not talking about the crisis doesn't mean that the crisis stops existing. Saying that the news shouldn't talk about it = not smart. This is way too 1984 for my tastes. Also, asking factory workers at some speech of yours why don't they have their wives with them and if they're all homosexuals? Not funny, by my standards. *headdesk*

6. Nothing more interesting for now really. I'm back to my computers-and-philosophical-text thing, I think. And I'll probably have some fic I owed posted tonight.

Ooh, I'm such a sucker for a ship meme. xD *steals*

Richard/Jacob (Lost)

*_* Now THERE'S an idea...

Sam/Castiel (SPN)

You want Cas to cheat on Dean with his own brother/the idiot who brought on the apocalypse?! *is scandalized* LOL!

Richard/Jacob is awesome. And PRETTY.

And ha, wait, Dean/Cas is in the pairings I'm into section, Sam/Cas in the 'intriguing pairings section', I don't exactly ship that. ;) ;) I just think it's an interesting pairing. ;)
Bettina Dawes: Lost-WALT!mothergoddamn on June 27th, 2009 05:56 pm (UTC)
Hurley's reaction to Charlie's death was 4,000 times more sad then Claire's. I always felt that whole thing was completely one sided too.

Richard and Jacob? Now, I can't stop thinking of Richard popping off to the statue for a booty call.
the female ghost of tom joad: friendsjanie_tangerine on June 27th, 2009 05:57 pm (UTC)
You know that Richard and Jacob totally did it under the shadow of the statue!

And word about Hurley, who was the only one who actually grieved. *sigh*
Bettina Dawes: Lost-Richardmothergoddamn on June 27th, 2009 06:24 pm (UTC)
That's why Jacob kept him young, he was the only hot islander until the plane crashed. I'm dying to see Alpert's back story, esp if it means shaggy hair flashbacks. I'm strangely keen on that 'do.

Did it ever irritate you that Des got Charlie's letter all wet and lost? I know he HAD to go in the water but still...
the female ghost of tom joad: friendsjanie_tangerine on June 28th, 2009 08:48 am (UTC)
YES, YES, YES, that's it. I buy it!

And yeah. It did irritate me. What irritated me most is that Hurley was the only one giving a shit, though. *sigh*
Bettina Dawes: Lost-Desmond and Pennymothergoddamn on June 28th, 2009 10:42 am (UTC)
And then he wasn't mentioned again until the house fell on Claire! It didn't fall hard enough!

Ha, I liked him but I seriously hated her. Nate/Brenda ftw, lol.

You poor dear!

Sorry I haven't commented so much, my brain has been so busy on everything going on over here! I need to write you a letter!
the female ghost of tom joad: ILUjanie_tangerine on June 28th, 2009 08:47 am (UTC)
Aw, don't worry! I haven't commented much either, stupid RL. And please do! I'm reading over there, mind it, I just wish my brain worked too. ;)

And thank you! *takes greedily* I hope it's over soon.
(Deleted comment)
the female ghost of tom joad: six feet underjanie_tangerine on June 28th, 2009 08:42 am (UTC)
Er, because while waiting outside a venue for a concert I had the great idea to go in skirt and sandals and the venue was near the sea and in a region which is pretty plain, so it was a mosquitoes fest and they all went for me. *sigh*

Word on S/J. The acting was just great but the actual development just didn't exactly sell me the whole thing. Pity because I'd have liked to buy it. ;)

HA, Nate/Lisa was terrible. I was all for Nate/Brenda, lol, I just couldn't stand the pairing. And David and Keith are awesome. *sigh*

I really hope they get some scenes together next season.

WORD.

LOL, yeah, don't worry, I know. ;) It's just that I'm at a point where I dislike them equally and I just went and put them both. Also because it gave me the chance to cheat and I like cheating at memes.

If they hadn't just made the whole triangle device to contrived and strained...

That. I was pretty much okay with it until a certain point but the last developments were just ridiculous imho.
Fangirlage like WHOA.: SFU // D&K - Intertwinedhopelessfangirl on June 28th, 2009 12:29 am (UTC)
FIFTY!?!?!?!?!? I live in a very mosquito-heavy place and still I say, FIFTY!?!?!?!?!?!? =O I hope you're all better soon!

I'm stealing that meme.
the female ghost of tom joad: six feet underjanie_tangerine on June 28th, 2009 08:24 am (UTC)
Yep. Then again, when you stay for six hours outside a venue in a zone which is half a km far from the sea in July with sandals *feels stupid* it's bound to happen. *sigh* I just hope they go away soon because I keep on getting awake at night and it's not fun. Thank you!

And steal away! It's awesome. ;)

I LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Josh in a white shirt, you know that's like my own personal crack..but the super safe and totally legal and 100 percent pure kind. :)

And yes, please, as much John as I can handle, OH YES, OH YES.

MMM..PROMPT, let's have a happy one, Boone survived Jack's surgery..in tact..he's healed well, it's gone fine, but oh boy does he love bossing people around and totally taking advantage of the situation.

and totally understand about the bites, when I was a kid I got 36 in one night, my mother didn't believe me, until she saw my back alone and was like, WTF????

HEEEE, MUCH GLAD YOU DO!!!! ;)

And OH, I LIKES THE PROMPT. I'll give it a shot asap, it's pretty much awesome. *g*

God, that's crazy. I can't believe I have so many myself. *sigh* At least if only I didn't keep waking up at four AM because they decided to hurt it'd be bearable but whatever, I hope they go away soon. ;) ♥
elliotsmelliot: Booneelliotsmelliot on June 28th, 2009 02:29 pm (UTC)
I'm so sorry to hear about your mosquito bites. That happened to me once when I was at a conference in rural Mexico. There are different lotions to put on like calamine that helps a bit. A cool bath is also good. Distracting yourself so you don't think of scratching it also a plus!

I haven't got far enough in SFU to know who Lisa is. I suspected Brenda and Nate would fall apart sooner or later. I adore Nathan and Keith and was happily spoiled by a friend that they get back together.

the female ghost of tom joad: six feet underjanie_tangerine on June 28th, 2009 08:50 pm (UTC)
Seriously, they're evil. I managed with ice though, now I just hope they're going away asap. And ouch, Mexico mosquitoes can't be good either. *feels your pain*

Lisa arrives in mid-S2, but even if she's kinda meh it probably is me liking Nate/Brenda way too much. Which is crazy because I'm never much invested in het pairings but I kinda am with them. And awww, yeah they do! ♥ And they're adorable, more or less.
elliotsmelliotelliotsmelliot on June 29th, 2009 11:02 am (UTC)
How are the bites?

I just met Lisa...Yikes! I like the actress but I except to find the idea of Lisa/Nate very difficult. I love Brenda and I fear it won't work with Nate.

I need a SFU icon!

That's so funny about Roland/Eddie -- I remembering reading part of the series when I was young -- 13, maybe? -- (like I mentioned) and even then thinking, "Woah, maybe these guys dig each other?", though not totally sure what to do with those pseudo-sexual undertones, lol. So I TOTALLY get why you ship them -- I mean, I know Eddie and Susannah (and Roland and Susan, I guess) were more the "love stories" in the series, but it still seems like the intimacy between Eddie and Roland was more than just buddies or even 'we've-been-through-epic-things-so-we-luff-each-other'.
the female ghost of tom joad: dark tower roland/eddiejanie_tangerine on June 29th, 2009 10:52 am (UTC)
HA, so it's not only me seeing the absolutely ridiculous UST those two had, right? I was reading the books when I was fifteen or so and I kinda jumped into that ship fifty pages after they met or so. And I also liked Eddie/Suze and Roland/Susan (fine, the first not so much after the last book but whatever), but as you said

it still seems like the intimacy between Eddie and Roland was more than just buddies or even 'we've-been-through-epic-things-so-we-luff-each-other'.

And I totally concur. They were sooo digging each other. Not to mention that in the last two books there was hand-holding and sharing closed spaces naked and some kind of kissing too which was seriously way too slashy to be accidental imho.
valhalla37valhalla37 on June 29th, 2009 01:50 pm (UTC)
No way -- it was totally there! (And again, this was coming from a pre-teen with absolutely no interest in shipping, romance, etc.)

King is pretty ballsy, though, and if I'm recalling correctly there were some slashy undertones between characters in his other books. And I love that he wouldn't shy away from that, because it makes so much sense.
the female ghost of tom joad: dark tower roland/eddiejanie_tangerine on June 29th, 2009 11:47 pm (UTC)
Yay for the slashy UST! ;)

And yeah, I usually end up feeling vibes two times out of three when I read his stuff. I think I felt that at least in The Long Walk, then I must have slashed someone in The Stand too (even if well, he had a lesbian character there already, so easier job) and I think there was some pretty canon mancrush going on in Blaze, even if that wasn't exactly his most brilliant book, lol. And yeah, agreed on me loving that he doesn't shy away from that.
