Your poker face ain't fooling nobody, nobody here
We've all felt the flame and shed those same tears
Driving home to a one man hell, still counting years, still counting years
Hey brother we're all learning to love again

Making up your bed that day on a foreign floor between foreign walls
Thinking 'bout the words you'd say to a phone that never calls
Feel the weight of your father's ring and all those dreams, and all those dreams
Hey brother, we're all learning to love again


PERFECT DEAN'N'SAM SONG Y/Y? I was just listening to my shuffle the other day, and the first lines caught my ear, and so I listened it out, and now I can't not see it that way. Anyone else?
If [youtube.com profile] lockedinabathroom made a video to it I think I would die happy. Hell, if anyone did. *hinthint*

Inexorable Gravity by [livejournal.com profile] lexicale
NC-17: Canon-AU, Dean/Jo/Sam(though, I'd say it's more of an R than NC-17)
Dean grew up looking after Sam and Jo. Jo may not be related to him, but she's still kind of his little sister, and he's not sure what's worse: that he's attracted to her anyways, or that he's attracted to Sam.

ALL THE HEARTS IN MY EYES FOR A RATIONAL, IN-DEPTH EXPLORATION OF THIS PAIRING OMG. It starts out Dean/Jo, admittedly, but it's the three of them, undeniably in love with each other and undeniably themselves, that makes it so fantastic. It's AU in that the Winchesters actually grow up with the Harvelles and they stay in contact even through Bill's untimely demise, but it utilizes canon incredibly effectively, and still gives you the characters as they should be, with believable changes brought on by their different lives. Dean is especially awesome. ♥

Goooo, read it. Be amazed. Wish there was more of this kind of fic in fandom. *shoos*

Apparently I am on a DW version of this joyful thing. Yay linksurfing and random communities!

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all had fantastic days! My flist is full of Christmas wishes so I'll keep it short; you guys are all awesome, and I couldn't ask for a better group of friends to have. ♥
Christmas went...as well as could be. Pretty good for our family, of which I'm very proud. What does it say about me that I woke up and thought "Oh, hey, Doctor Who day!"

But the real reason for this post! Dreamwidth is officially about to release Community Imports. For those who don't know, Dreamwidth allows you to back up/copy/import everything from your individual LJ account into a new Dreamwidth one. Before now, there was no way if you wanted to move your comm to the safety of DW, because they hadn't developed a system to do so. But, apparently one of their lead developers has been working on it, and they've decided to announce it this week as a sort of Merry Christmas. It won't officially be released for another week or so, but, still, it's exciting! This could really, really change the landscape around here, if comms get transferred over. I think it should be, of course, something like a vote or such for the comms with a large userbase, but, still. It could pave the way for fandom to jump ships. *shrugs* And that makes me happy because DW is sorta like the land flowing with milk and honey and shiny new features.

It's very, very interesting. I got very excited when I saw the news update last night. To be honest, I hope fandom starts transitioning. I don't want it all gone, because LJ does have lots of benefits, but, I'd like to see DW actually give it some competition. That would be amazing, because that might drive LJ to listen to the users, maybe.

(For other DW users, there's even more cool features they announced re: comments AND TAG MERGE OMG DW YOU CAN HAVE MY SOUL HERE TAKE IT and the staff actually answer and explain stuff and just in general...I'd totally recommend reading the whole update!)

Anyways. Wanted to share the news, for those who don't have DW or weren't paying a ton of attention. :)

jeez...

majorshipper: (Supernatural - Buried Alive)
Because I'm a horrible angst/pain/woe-they-are-broken lover(hell, I wouldn't be watching SPN if I didn't I guess?), I actually check out the tags for such at [community profile] spnstoryfinders. And somehow I stumbled across the Suite!verse by leonidaslion. Holy shit, that stuff is fucking brutal. I really need to stop getting so attached to fictional characters in a very fictional world, because that hurts. Literally.
Arg.

Seriously, if you haven't read it...don't. Because it's written perfectly and the characters are still themselves at the core and the story is twisty and intriguing and it pulls you in and never lets you go...but unless you like everything broken for long periods of time, a completely evil Sam who has no qualms doing whatever he likes, a broken and pretty near-unrecognizable Dean, a world that's been fucked to hell, explicitness(in every way you'd imagine), and buckets of general hard-core angst, avoid it.

If you have read it...commiserate with me? It doesn't help that I mainlined 200k of it in two days and then went back for the rest. Dear lord, I can be crazy sometimes.

As a consolation, feed me happy fluffity marshmellows of happiness? I'm gonna go watch the copy of Elf my brother recorded for me in an attempt to feel better.

In other news, I'm fiddling with DW and seeing if I can get the icons to sync up even a little bit. Fingers crossed.

Oh! Mission Impossible. In short, it was awesome. In long, it was pretty damn awesome. It wasn't as gory as he last one, but it didn't lose any of the action for it. The plot wasn't incredibly complicated, it just had a lot of points to it, which I like in a good action movie. They did a good job with the grooming Jeremy Renner bit too, as Tom Cruise is finally showing his age and Ethan Hunt is finally feeling pretty friggin world-weary. His character got backstory and motive and it was pretty good. Brad Bird did an amazing job with the directing, and I expected no less from him. It was clearly his own style, and I liked that.
Basically, go, see it. Jane's character has a few issues to deal with, but, in the end, to me, that's par for the course. I'd say this one's the best since the original; possibly even better than that. The mission actually felt impossible for the first time since the first movie, that's for sure.

I guess I should go and work on my erasure and maybe some of my HAS program...aw, shit. Looks like my enter key isn't working. UGH.
majorshipper: (♂ a day to remember you by)
So, I should know better than to a) get attached to minor characters who die and b) go in search of fic about those characters. Because they will hurt my heart even more. See the two fics below about one Gwen Campbell;

Fate, Tall, Delayed by [livejournal.com profile] animus_wyrmis
Gwen is a Campbell, first and always.
Ugh, Gweeeeeen. Basically a story of how everything that touches hunting crashes and burns and dies in a horrible fiery way. And a fantastic look at life outside of the Winchesters, outside of their own insulated battle for the world, a look at what it's like to fight for the everyman and lose and lose people and move on and lose faith. So pretty, but also heartbreaking. OH HEY, SHOW, WHY IS GWEN DEAD? WHY DID YOU GIVE US THIS FANTASTIC CAMPBELL CONNECTION AND THEN KILL THEM ALL!?

Brass Ceiling by [livejournal.com profile] kalliel
Hunting is the difference between skipping town because the rent's overdue and skipping town because there's a werewolf two states over. It's the difference between being a murderer and being a big damn hero. Gwen and hers have got it coming, and there is no getting out--only strapping in.
Outsider POV, the things you do to me. And outsider POV of hunting? EVEN MORE FANTASTIC. A little tough to get into, but once you're in, it's like you're sucked in (hm, much like hunting, no?) and the story is going places with or without you. Another fantastic look at life outside the Winchester's very isolated POV, what it's like to be a normal hunter. And what it's like to have your own issues and your own problems that brought you where you are. And what it's like to tell a story without saying anything much at all.
Basically, ALL MY HEARTS IN MY EYES.


You want even more drama? LISTEN TO THIS WHILE READING! It's all mournful and violiny and it owns my soul. Star Wars and string instruments and I would listen to VSQ for FOREVER.

[livejournal.com profile] proverbsun, you're the first person I thought of when this came on. :D
majorshipper: (➘ the best pet i ever lost)
→Ugh. LJ! You're not sending my notices, again! How am I supposed to know if any of my VERY IMPORTANT COMMENT THREADS are being updated?

→Got my christmas card from [livejournal.com profile] yappichick! 'S very pretty and thoughtful; thank you, bb! My brother got it and thought it was a birthday card, since I've been getting those pretty much all week, but I corrected him when I got up. I showed to it Mum, and she was quite enamored with it, especially when I explained that it was from a friend of mine from SGA, she was all "...wow, you guys must have met a long time ago!" (I neglected to mention that I even remember the old John/Teyla threads from GW that I lurked on and got to know everyone on long before I got LJ, because that was even longer ago).
Made me have a moment of "Holy smokes, I've been in fandom for a fourth of my life, pretty much." Which made me feel both old and young. And also kinda gave me the urge to go and delete anything from before 2008, because who really likes the random thoughts of a teenager? And the fanfic. Oh my god. I can't read any of that stuff. It scares me.

→I also can't believe I've only been on LJ for two years. It feels like so much longer, because of all the lurking I did long before I signed up. That, and the fact that I started on forums rather than LJ, and so I didn't get here 'till after I left forums. But really. The people I've gotten to know, the friends I've made, the ups and down that I've been through with y'all; the shows that I've found and loved and lost...
Basically; akl;dfghjgfijkl I LOVE EVERYONE.

→I really, really love Mission: Impossible 3. Me and the brother had a marathon of the three movies the other day, and I, of course, loved the movies, because I'm an action/adventure junkie with a love of spy movies. But my real great love for M:I3 isn't so much the typical stuff; my favorite thing was the direction and cinematography. For an action/thriller, it was gorgeously shot, IMHO. The colors were all rich in the right spots and washed out in all the right ones; the tones(blue and green and steel-gray vs. red and yellow and orange and brown) matched the actual tones of scenes, the camera was steady and locked-off when the tone called for it, and jittery and handheld when that was needed, too. It doesn't hurt that Tom Cruise was fantastic, either. The whole thing was just amazing, both in writing and directing. I think it helped cement JJ Abrams as one of my favorite directors, ever.

→Oh, something I got a kick out of; Stanford sent me a letter inviting me to apply for their High School Summer College. Basically it was along the lines of "You're smart, apparently, since you score high marks on standardized testing; would you like to come to school here next summer?"
On one hand, holy smokes, if I didn't have to think about anything else, I'd snap that sucker up in a heartbeat. But on the other hand, that's an eight-week program, which would keep me from doing my aerospace scholars program AND the summer seminar at the Academy. And I would have to find a way to get to Cali and some kind of arrangement to stay there. So basically, they got me all excited and then I realized it wouldn't be feasible. So I'm adding it to the stack of letters from places I'd like to go, like Embry-Riddle.
Responsible choices are so annoying.
majorshipper: (♕ shhh it's a secret that everyone knows)
spoilers, of course, for 4x10 and the little trailer for next week )

I haven't read anyone else's thoughts, so I have no idea how everyone else feels about it, but as a whole, it was a lot better than I anticipated.
As always, please no spoilers for future episodes in the comments. Thank you! <3


MIRANDA ♥♥♥
SHE IS LIKE THE SPIRIT ANIMAL OF FANDOM. She actually reminds me of my history professor. A lot. I'm just sad that I'm nearly done. Also, Tom Ellis, sir, you are even more attractive without the crazy evilness and the whacko hair.


I still cannot find it in myself to watch the last episode of Supernatural again. because of aaaaangst. (beware spoilers for the last episode as well as a discussion that could be kinda triggery re: that scene with Bobby and his parents) )

I need a Merlin vid to Switchfoot's Souvenirs. Seriously. I mean, just listen to it *____*



yup, I'm in one of those ~musical~ moods right now )

You know what I miss?

Andromeda. I was just surfing about my collection and stumbled across an episode from S3. I know pretty much every time I go back to it I say this, but it's true. I love the universe and the premise and the ridiculous plots and crazy canon AU/AR setups and the snappy dialog. It's not the bright-burn I get for some shows(you know who you are), but more of the slow-burn love that I have for Stargate. Which makes sense, considering I started watching it the year after it started on reruns that aired right before Stargate(so, 2001, just as I was hitting my peak SG1 love).
Anyways. The point is; it's really cheesy and it's getting to be pretty dated, but it had fantastic potential and a huge, expansive universe.

I totally need to rewatch.


In other news; I've still got to watch the latest Merlin. I've kinda been eaten whole by Community(ABED, COME, LET ME LOVE YOU, BOY), right now, so...there's that holding me up. Oh, and, y'know, RL. Silly things like school, work, etc. Ugh. Sorry I haven't been around much, guys! The weekend was crazy with playing catch-up. I'm trying to unwind on my off-hours by picspaming two of my favorite gorgeous things(Dean and the Impala) and watching far too much Community and Big Bang Theory.
