I was doing so well today, too. Put on a pretty white dress and did my hair and wore a smile and boasted about what a change Sunday was, and I go to one fucking grocery shop and they play one fucking song and I'm back to sobbing in a bathroom stall, hands shaking and throat closing. This isn't fair! I'm done, I've chosen my path!

I'm trying to be your Switzerland, your west coast girl. My feet are bleeding to be your girl. My hands are shaking to be your girl. I've given you each piece of my heart and now I'm left staring at the hole in my chest. Do you know what it's like with your finger on the wrong trigger, every note the right one? Do you know what it means to choose a path that makes everyone happy but you? The path is crumbling beneath my feet.

You’re the moon but I'm no tide. I had a dream about sharks and aliens, and I woke up standing in the middle of a road. But it was just another dream, but I can remember saying, "the air was shimmering like a mirage". And so are you. I don't know what to do any more, I don't know what any of this means except that I'm stuck clicking next on my iPod and terrified of shopping for eggs.

There's two weeks left til I get to look you in the face, til I get to say whatever it is that's going to be on my mind, but I'm not sure I’ll be able to, anyway.

I remember that I hate LAX, and that whenever I hand over my passport I get a double-take because I don't look anything like my picture any more. I don't feel like I'm here, just some shimmer. I'm a unicorn and a mermaid all wrapped into one, and you're the only one that caught me. You are horrifying.

All I wanna do is love you still, and feel your hand curl over my hip, and smell your just washed hair. But I don't know what shampoo you're using any more, and I can't remember how your fingers felt.

It’s like watching your favourite movie but getting amnesia twenty minutes in. I'm not letting the right one in; I'm letting the wrong one out.

kiss me, kiss me, you're the only one.
kill me, kill me, you're the last one.
bury me beneath the stairs, and forget about me.

Some TV observations and opinions:

Elementary (CBS) has been on the bubble for me since the pilot, but their beauteous, elegant season finale last year (and their sensitivity and pointedly anti-sensational/gimmicky treatment of addiction) went a long way in my seeing through S2. I've considered dropping it more times than I haven't, probably, but 1) Lucy Liu, 2) their musical score is fantastic, and 3) the second half of S2 has been pretty strong, especially last week's episode.

Community (NBC) I'm in the minority who really enjoyed S4. And I honestly think that a lot of people were assured in their dislike of S4 just because Dan Harmon wasn't a part of it. I agree that Dan Harmon not being a part of it was some bullshit right there, but to assume that a season will be shitty because the former showrunner isn't showrunning is a completely unfair bias (see: Sera Gamble, BAMF/HBIC). Anyway, I was lukewarm on the S5 premiere and hit-or-miss from there (though the hits were home runs and the misses were still reasonably pleasurable) until the second half of the season, where imho it got swallowed by its own metacommentary to the point that it was no longer a playful parody of television, but a bitter parody of itself. (I found 5x11 hugely problematic and honestly, uncomfortable!) No show wears bitter well (and here I mean, bitter writers and bitter narratives, not bitter characters), but it wasn't a good feel for Community at all. But the season finale was really well done. And if you go out on a high note, I'll always be back next season. :) Well, that and Community has earned at least a season's worth of benefit of the doubt. XD

Law and Order: SVU (NBC) S15 is actually pretty fantastic. It's been powered primarily with a recurring storyline that opened the two-hour premiere and has cropped up again a few times now. LET ME STATE FOR THE RECORD. I give absolutely no damns about this storyline, no damns at all, so in all major respects it's the SVU equivalent of Dean's Purgatory storyline, except with more follow-up and actual, continued attention to the repercussions of such an experience. XD Anyway, as of S13 SVU's had new showrunners--Warren Leight and Julie Martin--and they are FANTASTIC. okay so the second half of S14 was pretty shit but they've taken a long running cop procedural spinoff of an even longer cop procedural/courtroom drama and made it into something worth watching in order, with extended emotional tenors and marked character development and law precedents and police procedures that actually change the positionality/privilege of the NYPD as part of the state of New York, whistleblows corruption within the NYPD and State government, and actively engages with the idea that top-level handling of, and legislation regarding sex crimes, reproductive rights, racial hate crimes, sexuality-based hate crimes, and other special victims crimes needs to change right now. It's still very much a case-of-the-week show, but the verdicts of these cases (or the detectives's conduct during the case) actually matter, and press on the cases that follow.

Also, Warren Leight and Julie Martin either write or storyboard like every other episode, which makes me feel really good about them for likely illogical reasons. But I choose to interpret that as their commitment to making SVU awesome! :3 S15 so far feels like it's been written to bring the series to a graceful end if need be. If it doesn't get renewed and this is indeed the final season of SVU, it'll go out in style.


You know, fandom's Sam vs. Dean argument isn't frustrating or upsetting--it's actually just BORING. See also "tl;dr." The myopia and rampant confirmation bias powering both sides makes neither worth the bytes they're printed on.

And for what it's worth, Samfans feel like everyone's hating on Sam and Deanfans feel like everyone's hating on Dean. Suck as that may, it probably means that in actuality, whichever version of that storm it feels like you're weathering, it's not as powerful as it seems; you'll be fine!

In an emergency, I suggest you become a fan of Roy and Walt instead. OR ROY OR WALT. I will give you a million dollars if you can find a single person fanatically invested in hating Roy and Walt. More if you can find anyone who has real stake in a Roy-Walt versus war, because... I'm pretty sure

most people

don't actually know which

is which.

Even the Olive Garden twitter account was tweeting about Supernatural earlier in the day.
I must admit I'm always perplexed as to why an aired show has to go under the cut (say two days later as today). Sure I know not everyone can see it immediately but my query is why don't they avoid the Internet for a few days until they do? Sure some folks have to *go* on the internet regardless and I do understand that and the different time zones etc. etc. cause some issues but I'd really like to discuss a few days after....a large portion of the fandom wig out if someone let's their POV out (in their opinion) early and say rather than "spoil" anyone it's easy to put the opinions/reactions under the cut. True. But why should the majority of fans who have seen the episode have to constantly monitor possible "spoiler" reactions? Yada Yada Yada I know not everyone in the world can see it in a immediately (some due to work/school/family or just because they want to wait until the weekend - (personal choice there) but the spoiler phobes might be a teensy bit overreacting no? Just looking for opinions on this touchy, touchy subject. Don't kill me.

I was asked to do some icons for Fans For Danneel so I thought I'd post them here as I get them done.

The first batch is Danneel in her latest role, Julia, in 'Baby Bootcamp'. (Plus some Christian Kane that sneaked in under the radar with his sexy new hair cut!!)

Total Icon Count: 33


Icons Here!Collapse )
