stuff + memes  
1. Okay, so, from tomorrow to the day after I'm on a leave of absence because I'm taking a flash trip with _izu_ and marlonob to see Duff McKagan + Loaded in concert somewhere near Modena, and I just hope no one posts everything important I might miss. ;)

2. That said, I probably will have another ficlet for the darned alphabet meme later. I can finish that, can I?

3. Memes galore because today I'll need to take breaks from the awesomeness that it's computers in relation to philosophical texts. What joy.

3a. This from invisiblelove:

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick six of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

LOL. Well, this one is mostly because I needed a funny SPN icon and as soon as I saw it I had to grab it. It's a quote from Buffy (which I didn't watch) but come on, it's SO PERFECT for Castiel. I still giggle anytime I look at it, and the actual composition is lovely.

Well, that speaks for itself. I always have a Des + blue shirt icon in rotation, and that one had also the personal jesus line which is just perfect for him, I had to grab it. *loves*

by marylou_gr

This has more than one reason. First, IT'S GORGEOUS. Look at it. Just look at it. The composition and the coloring is pure genius and I just love it. THEN, look at the meaning. I mean, it's one of my favorite scenes in Lost ever and I just don't like Locke well enough anymore to have my Locke icon without Boone in and that part was just... guh. Also, I love that episode. And also, he needs to clean his own mess.

This... well, it's fairly uncomplicated. I need a Vincent icon and I needed a porn icon too, so I found it and took it because it fit perfectly. ;)

by hobbitholes

Aw, I love this one so much. It's my second Lost OTP and while it's not the main one I use for the pairing it's just... AWWWW. The stick figures are SO CUTE and they're HAND HOLDING and they're freighty love!! *melts*

by lasamy

I won't ever, ever change this one. Apart from it being PERFECT, it's my OTP, my favorite scene in the history of Lost ever, the defining turning point of my fandom life and come on, the composition and coloring and text are gorgeous and so well put. I ♥ it. Seriously.

3b. This from... like, everyone.

Name a fandom, and I'll give you the scoop on at least three of my unpopular opinions related to that fandom. -> usually, my scoops imply that I like slash way more than any canon pairings, but still.

3c. This from elliotsmelliot:

Choose one of the TV shows, movies or books you know I’m familiar with, and I’ll tell you which character I’d pick for the following:

Best & Worst Roommate:
Best & Worst Neighbour:
Best & Worst Houseguest:
Who would I get to help me garden?
Who would I get to help me decorate?
Who would I get to help me with any repairs/renovations?
Who would I get to help me move?
Who would I trust to sell me the property?
Who would I invite over for my first dinner?

4. Okay, I'm off to buy groceries and then studying and then editing stuff. -nod-
feeling: confusedconfused
on rotation: the wall - pink floyd

LOL, surely!

Unpopular opinions:

1) Uh. I think this is unpopular, from what I gathered. But... uh. I ♥ Jimmy Novak a lot and to really serious levels and I don't think that he's an issue with slashing Dean and Castiel or that his presence kills the pairing or anything. There are at least a couple of good excuses if you don't want to actively include him imo, but still, I don't think he's really an impediment. And I reiterate, I LOVE the guy to pieces. (Well, fine, he's named after James Stewart and Kim Novak! What am I supposed to do? ;) )

2) Uh. I don't dislike Jo. I'm not too fond of her either in the sense that she never was my favorite female character or anything (for one, I like her mother a LOT better), but I thought she was okay and I never really felt much of the annoyance with her, even though I don't think she made a good love interest. I didn't even dislike Cassie that much and I like Anna just fine as long as they don't force her paired up with Dean. The only women I never really could stand were Bela and Gen!Ruby. (And I never understood what's the deal with Dean/Layla but IDK whether it qualifies enough to be unpopular, lol.)

3) I find the lack of threesomes in fandom definitely a very, very dramatic issue. I mean, I might be biased because I ship Dean with everything and everyone and he's a constant in most of my pairings, but why are threesomes so hard to find? It's not like when slashing people in SPN it isn't either incest or blasphemy or angel porn or not really ordinary stuff anyway. *cough* And this was probably lame but I couldn't come up with another thing which could be defined unpopular.

As for the roommates...

Best & Worst Roommate: Best: Ash because I mean, he's ASH and he'd go around naked and he'd make my freaking day. And he'd totally get me free wi-fi from somewhere. Worst: Lilith in her child form. I mean, I usually want to strangle cute blonde babies who dress in pink, but she's especially creepy and I wouldn't want to be buying her a cake everyday in order not to die, y'know.
Best & Worst Neighbour: Best: Bobby because you know that he'd be there giving you a hand anytime as long as you pass the holy water test, he can cook, he has any possible skill and I can hide in his bunker if the world ends. Worst: Alistair, mostly because it'd mean that I'd live in Hell and no thanks. Also, he creeps me out.
Best & Worst Houseguest: Best: Andy because he'd totally bring the good stuff and we'd talk about philosophy (and he'd hit off with Ash I think, since Ash is my roommate lol). Worst: Zachariah. I wouldn't want him around for the life of me.
Who would I get to help me garden? you know that the Ghostfacers would love it. ;)
Who would I get to help me decorate? er, Ellen. I liked the Roadhouse.
Who would I get to help me with any repairs/renovations? Dean! He knows how to fix a car, he will know how to repair stuff.
Who would I get to help me move? Sam! He's dark, tall and strong, he'd move my furniture in a heartbeat. Or maybe Castiel, he would just teleport everything.
Who would I trust to sell me the property? Jimmy. I'd trust that face any second, lol.
Who would I invite over for my first dinner? either wee!Sam and Dean just for the kicks of it or, more realistically, Castiel and/or Jimmy. Castiel wouldn't know that my cooking sucks because he doesn't eat and Jimmy would be so hungry that he wouldn't care about the fact that it tastes like nothing at best.

Well, the chemistry is another business. ;) I mean, I don't think that Dean/Cassie was that great chemistry but I can't say I honestly disliked her, lol. And ha, I love Ellen like woah, but I surely didn't hate Jo. AND JIMMY = ♥ ♥ ♥ this fandom lacks Jimmy love. It so does. Poor guy *hugs him*. Er, I was saying, oh yeah, and you're totally right about the Dean girls of the week. Personally my favorite was the one from Monster Movie though. ;) And er, yeah, you said it just right. I just don't get why in SPN fandom I can find every single weird thing but threesomes. Maybe because it means combining two kinds of weird but still.

And ha, you know that the dinner one is totally true and that Ash as your roommate would make your life brighter. ;) Or more badass, at least.
