SPN 8x19 + some other things

1. First thing, quick fic rec for anyone who might be interested (idk how many on here are into both, but it's so brilliant I have to share): this is an ASOIAF/Father Ted crossover where Stannis, Renly and Robert are priests living on Craggy Island and it's the most beautiful crossover that ever crossovered in every history of crossovers. Seriously. You don't have to be familiar with Father Ted to crack up, though if you are it's funnier. Okay, there it is. You won't regret it.

2. That said, I SAID I WAS GOING TO DO EPISODE REACTIONS AGAIN and I'm doing it. Okay, SPN time since no vampire porn this week.

Collapse )

3. Two GRRM-related things: seriously. IS THERE SOMEONE WHO READS WILD CARDS other than me in the universe? Seriously, I spent Easter reading throughout books sixteen and seventeen and it's just - so many delish characters and I have at least four otps TWO OF WHICH ARE CANON AND CURRENTLY LIVING HAPPILY EVER AFTER and while it does have the asoiaf realism/angst (as much as superhero books can have) CHARACTERS ACTUALLY GET TO BE HAPPY MOST TIMES even if they get through hell first, and there's canon queer/interractial/interspecies relationships and okay while some parts are seriously WTF or tacky or irrationally gross as a whole IT'S REALLY REALLY GOOD D: and I can't find fic or a fandom or ANYTHING except a forum that is updated every two months, whyyyyy.

4. Second GRRM-related thing: if I have any Theon fans on here who are on tumblr but we don't follow each other, me and a friend on there will hopefully be hosting a week of ridiculous Theon fangirling in mid-May because seriously the hate on the guy is pretty horrible atm and it'll just get worse as the season progresses so if anyone's interested, we'd love to have you. ;)

5. In other news: I spent Easter between despairing over my grandmother (whom I love but the more time passes the more I'm convinced that she'll never understand that life doesn't equate obligatory valley of tears) and feeling like some old person because my ten year-old cousin spent like half an hour speaking about how in his class people get caught for hiding their i-pods in their shoes, can't use their cellphones or *i-pads* in class etcetera etcetera. At which my basic reactions were: 'WHY would you buy your ten year-old an iphone or an ipad or ANYTHING LIKE THAT' and 'fuck when I was ten we didn't even bring our frigging *walkman* to school and we didn't spend time during classes playing Angry Birds'. Which probably explains a lot of things, but still, I'm too young to feel like an old woman and wish that kids these days would just go and read Treasure Island under their desk instead of playing Angry Birds, if they really have to not pay attention.

... damn, I sound like my grandmothers used to sound when I was seven. Brb, getting drunk.

6. I also had a sort of half-high school reunion. Half in the sense that just half of the people were present, and most of them were people I never talked to. But for some miracle it actually went decently, we got nicely buzzed (even if the beer I had was good enough to keep me awake until 4 AM even if the entire thing was over at 2...) and idek, apparently it took five years to get past the stage where people forget how much they used to dislike each other in HS but it was nicer than I thought it'd be.

That said, I'm also apparently too old to get buzzed and then go to bed at five AM because the morning after I woke up at like 11.30 AM and I wanted to spend the entire day in bed.

7. The politics around here are getting so depressing that I can't even fathom it. Not any news, but still, when you think you can't get worse IT GETS WORSE.

8. At least, I found a recipe for strawberry muffins which works like a charm. Now if only I had a chance to use said muffins to charm the Richard Madden lookalike haunting my university who appears in there once every two years or so, my life would be awesome. Again: why don't I know how to flirt? Because I'd have done that three months ago, if I had.

9. In more interesting book-related news, I'm three chapters into Fifty Shames of Earl Gray and it was deliciously hilarious. I'm looking forward to seeing how it goes on, because if the rest is as good as the first three chapters, it's going to be the funniest thing I've read in ages.

10. Aaand since I have nothing else of import, I'll just leave you with this, which is arguably the best piece of live music that I've heard in the last six months that wasn't a concert I was attending. You're welcome. ;)

supernatural dean/castiel 3.0, going down with my ship, supernatural dean/cas s7

happy easter! and I'm talking SPN! and vampire porn! and other things.

1 . Happy Easter everyone! :D I hope you’re all hoarding the chocolate I’m not ;) aaand happy GOT day to everyone who actually watches it today – may you all survive it.

2. So, since (as usual) I haven’t updated as much as I thought I would, run-down of what’s been happening here: I solved one problem I was having for the last final I was supposed to have, so it’s three left now and then it’s just the thesis (which hopefully will make me enthusiastic again about this whole school deal because right now I’m just burned out) \o/ also, I thought the elections mess couldn’t get any worse, but apparently it is! And we might vote again this year! And I can bet you money I won’t like the result, since my last illusions that people vote with their heads in this country has been totally shattered. Anyway, welcome to the only country in the world where you stay in charge even if you lose the elections and when I can’t even be pissed about it because the alternatives are all worse. Oh, and B. wants to be President of the Republic. If you’re laughing at that, it’s exactly what you should do.

Also, Mumford and Sons were glorious :DDD which is pretty much the best thing that happened in the last month.

Meanwhile, I’m currently at my grandparents’ for the holidays, using the internet stealthily and wondering if my grandmother will ever understand that no one ever said that it’s your duty to make your own life miserable.

3. Also, since I’m set on getting back on track and starting doing episode reviews again from next week (at least for GOT and SPN, since I’m not sure I have enough shit to say about the vampire porn to do an entire post each episode) I’m catching up with some quick reactions to the last stuff here, so next week I can start anew. ;)

So, vampire porn: Collapse )

SPN: Collapse )

4. Since we were discussing tv: I’m going to (try to) do GOT recap posts this year DECENTLY, also because I promised lenina20 that I would warn her beforehand (<3). I’m not sure of when I’ll manage to watch the premiere because here the internet is random and I can’t be on it if anyone calls on the phone, which means that it’s gonna take me ages to download it, but at worst it should be tomorrow evening, so the review will happen either late tomorrow or early on the 2nd, unless I manage to watch it in the morning for some kind of miracle. That said: I’m pretty sure that everyone around here knows the deal, but since I spent the last month blocking idiots on tumblr arguing that Theon deserves horrible things, I’ll just state again that Theon bashing is nowhere near okay around these parts. Also, I’ll probably endlessly complain about Robb’s storyline this year because the few things I know aren’t making me happy, so uhm, just thread carefully because I’ll probably go heavy on that. xD

5. Also: anyone has switched to the new friends page? Is it as horrible as it seems from the description? Because I already miss the old update page, and since it hasn’t forces me to switch to the new friends page yet I’m delaying, but I’d like to hear some opinions before considering it. Not sure I’ll do it until they force me though.

6. And after this Easter novel, I should probably go get ready for lunch (and after that hopefully I’ll finish an 8x17 coda which has been nagging at me since I watched the damn thing but that I couldn’t start until yesterday…) Again, I hope you’re all drowning in chocolate :D (and expect some late comments because as stated since anytime someone calls on the landline I have to disconnect the internet I gave up on checking the friends page, but tomorrow I shall catch up. :D)
stonehenge apocalypse ROBOT HEAD, stonehenge apocalypse misha radio, IT WAS A ROBOT HEAD, etcetcetc

I'm just trying to catch up here, you can scroll past.

Okay, so, I decided that Sunday morning was perfect for catching up duties. Except that once upon a time, LJ let me go back 1000 entries and now it's a dashing 200. I've been opening journals while going back through the FL and scrolling down and commenting at random, so if you see me popping out of nowhere it's just me catching up, but if any of you hasn't posted anything since February 25th I'll probably miss it :/ anyway, that was just to say that I might spam your inbox with comments on January entries. *waves* *goes back to catching up*
asoiaf &gt;&gt; night&#39;s watch, asoiaf &gt;&gt; the NW does it right, the pogues, asoiaf &gt;&gt; SWORD IN THE DARKNESSS

er, hi? oh dear how long have I been gone? /o\

1. ... Er, hello world! I suppose everyone has given me up for MIA, right? /o\ damn, I don't think I've ever spent this long without updating. Or checking the FL, ugh. I swear I'll be up to date asap. Anyway, since I disappeared for two months, have a run-through of what's been going on here.

2. So, point is: I ended up swamped in finals-related cramming which went good for half and bad for the other half (because two were passed the way I wanted, the other two... one I had to skip because I caught some bothersome form of influenza and the other because even with the cramming I wasn't nowhere near ready for it), so now I have three left. Then it happened that apparently the one class I have to attend this semester is canceled and I won't know what to do about it until tomorrow, but my former supervisor for the bachelor's degree is making me do the master's thesis with her so at least there's something. And this entire deal pretty much ate up more of my free time than I'd have liked, so I ended up having to drop any social network where it doesn't take you more than five seconds to post. /o\

3. Also: if anyone has read about election results, B. came in *second*, the third biggest party's target seems to be 'let's make everyone look horrible by not agreeing with a government with the first so next elections we win!', and obviously the lovely people at the left party managed to get first but without enough votes to actually rule, so in the end I'm pretty sure they'll elect the new Pope before we have a government. Yay. If anyone around can guess, I've been wanting to cry hysterically about it since it happened. (I'm also seriously thinking about going out of the country as soon as I have the degree and I find any kind of job somewhere else, but that's not happening until graduation which isn't happening until October at best, so.) Also, two of B.'s trials are ending soon and he organizes a march against the magistrature - I'm not even sure I can stand another six months of him being relevant.

4. ... damn the new LJ update page is as horrible as I remember it, but you can't switch anymore, right? Damn. Okay, back on track.

5. I'm actually caught up with tv shows (okay, nope, I'm caught with SPN and the vampire porn, I had to drop the rest for the moment) but I haven't had time for any reaction post whatsoever so I'll see if after I'm as caught up with the f-list as I'm going to be I'll manage to do some huge meta post for everything I haven't reacted about. For now, in short: I'm not exactly getting what the vampire porn is trying to accomplish but Damon looks prettier than usual so whatever and SPN hasn't been this good in ages as far as I'm concerned, so nothing to complain on that side.

6. Oh, right, I'm also feeling totally conflicted about GOT. In the sense, I want to watch it for some things, but knowing what awaits me at the end makes me wish it aired next year. Or ten years from now. Anyone who read the books knows the deal. One thing that was very much true, though, is that if the posters are the best HBO can do then they'd be better off if they hired me. Or any person around here who can use photoshop, because my first reaction was 'damn give me the selective coloring tool and make me get rid of the blue'.

7. Concerts speaking: I'm seeing Mumford & Sons in a week and The National are coming in June! (The day after I'm supposed to be in Milan for Bon Jovi, but I'll manage somehow.) Also there's Neil Young coming at the end of July, and while the venue sucks I'll probably go because who knows when it's going to happen again. And there's Bruce Springsteen in July too, so at least I'm doing good with going to concerts this year.

8. Also: I totally failed at Christmas cards even if I had half of them ready /o\ in the next days I'm going to send belated PMs because I didn't even manage to make a thank you post for the one I received and then I'm going to see what to do with it. If you receive random cards in the middle of April or May from me, it's me being extremely late.

9. GRRM speaking: I've also apparently and masochistically ended up getting crazy into Wild Cards, aka The Other Huge Project That GRRM Has Been Doing For Ages But I Didn't Know About It, which I probably should have avoided for my own mental sanity. But I'm apparently in 'DAMN IT I'M IN WESTEROS WITHDRAWAL' mode, and I saw the first book reprinted and I thought the plot was interesting. Clearly I got hooked, and then I promptly found out that on twenty-one books, five are in print and the rest is not. Good news is that I got a Kindle for Christmas and I found a torrent for the e-books, so I'm covered, but you don't want to know the pain that it's been finding ten on twenty-one. The problem is that the eleven I'm missing are priced too much for paperbacks that were out in the early nineties, but I'll probably buy them all. Very much eventually. Anyway, there's obviously no fandom whatsoever for it, so at least I'm saved from possible 'OMG SHINY NEW FANDOM' shenanigans, since I have no time for it. D:

10. Oh, and in the mess above described in the first point, it happened that a guy who could pass for Richard Madden's little brother except with brown hair/eyes exists and he SOMETIMES, and with that I mean 'two times each year', appears in my university. And I was sitting behind the guy during the only written final I had this round. I'm going to spare you the reactions to finding out the guy's existence - they were mostly the kind you overgrow after fourteen, but clearly the one time I run into a guy with whom I'd totally consider trying to flirt (and I'm a total fail at flirting and related) he shows up twice and then I don't see him around anymore. *facepalm* Help. Obviously not having crushed on people at fourteen is showing up now. Ah well.

11. Okay, that was what's going on with me. Soooo tell me what's up with you all? I haven't managed to check the FL also because at some point I fell behind with TV and I didn't want to risk spoilers, and I'm not sure that I'll see everything that I missed because LJ only lets me go back so much :/ I'll try to go check individual journals instead, but meanwhile if something happened with you tell me/link me? I missed LJ, I want to get back into the swing of things. <3
books, ian somerhalder OMGYES the revenge &lt;3 &lt;3

christmas stuff! and cards! (not mine) and other things!

1. Merry Christmas everyone! ♥ I hope you're all having an amazing day and that your presents were plentiful. ;)

2. As for me, I'm currently at my grandparents' on my dad's side, which means that I have sporadical internet access. On the good side, apparently my little cousins grew tired of the Christmas singing. Which is good. (On the I-don't-know-what-to-make-of-it, the eldest is apparently putting into practice some perpetual sulking that would make Jon Snow proud, which I'm pretty sure isn't allowed when you're *ten* and your name is not Jon Snow.)

3. Also, Christmas cards! Thanks so very much for the Christmas cards to: itsjustc (thank you! <3), vella_amor_dm (we should totes be more on LJ *nods* also that was some seriously lovely card, thanks!), twisting_vine_x (aw that card was adorable, thanks!), elliotsmelliot (that owl on the card is so beautiful <3 thank you!), haldoor (wow, that was a gorgeous card - how do you even make them? I loved all the glitter xD ♥) and jaydblu (that was a very shiny card, thanks! ;) )!

Also, random question: do Canadian posts send all letters during Christmas time with the 'SANTA HOHOHO PERE NOEL' thing printed on the top? I hadn't noticed it previously but it's kind of awesome.

Also, I'm working on mine but with everything going down this month I didn't manage to finish them yet, so they'll probably be.. New Year's. Well. You'll probably get them after New Year's, but they *are* coming. /o\

4. Have some entertainment thanks to my Buffy obsessed uncle. Yesterday, this conversation happened.

Him: 'you know, there's this whole debate about who should Buffy end up with in the community. There are people who are for Bangel, that'd be Buffy/Angel, and then there are the ones for Spuffy, which would be Spike/Buffy...'

Me: 'Okay, yeah, sure.' What I was really thinking: holy crap IS MY UNCLE USING PROPER SHIPNAMES WHAT IS THIS, IS THIS REAL LIFE?'

Him: 'then of course it's obvious that Angel and Spike had history together - you know, between centuries-old vampires...'


A short while later, after I say something like 'seriously is this still a thing' when my cousin starts drooling over a Dragon-Ball videogame:

Him: 'well, do you know who played Junior in the live action movie?'

Me: 'James Marsters? Wait a moment, did you actually watch that thing?'

Him: 'I might be a Spuffy, but I don't watch every piece of crap James Marsters stars in.'

I don't know how I kept the laughing fit from happening. Seriously, if he ever starts watching something that I watch as well it's going to be fucking hilarious. (Meaning: if he ever comes up to me being like 'I ship destiel Dean/Cas' I'll most probably never recover.) Also he bought me Boardwalk Empire dvds. Did I ever say that it's awesome to have someone in the family who actually gets what you're talking about when you talk tv shows? (Oh, and I have the first three seasons of Breaking Bad too, but with the way things are I'll probably watch them after my finals - sigh.)

5. And after leaving you with this hilarious exchange to spice up your Christmas day, I'll go a) commenting on my oh-so-very-perfect-and-marvelous-Yuletide-gift (it's Kavalier and Clay and it's Sam/Tracy and it's FLAWLESS. I'D READ IT IF I WERE YOU). Aaand I hope you're all having a marvelous day again <3 (the next time I post I'll have hopefully finished with the cards, at least..)

supernatural dean/castiel 4.0, supernatural dean/cas have a little fait

fic, SPN: hallelujah you love him so (Dean/Castiel), PG

Title: hallelujah you love him so [AO3]
Pairing: Dean/Castiel
Rating: PG13
Word count: 1500 ca
Spoilers: 8x07 coda
Warnings: nothing really.
Disclaimer: I don't own them, sadly for me.
Summary: If it’s worth something, your side is where I wanted to be all along; it’s the only place where I’ve ever wanted to see you. Or, where Dean and Castiel share the Impala's backseat and some things are talked out.
A/N: sooo, uhm, in September it was maharetishtar's birthday and I asked her for a prompt and she said Dean/Cas where they cuddle up in the back of the Impala. Says everything that it took me two months and last episode to actually do it the way I wanted, but I wanted to do a coda for it and it fit, so there we go. Title slightly reworked from an Animals song. Also, second person POV. Using for my homebrew_bingo wild card square.
