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) )

So, RL update. I've been kinda absentee since Sunday. Long story short, Mum got sick again and I've been up here at the hospital with her since then. We're prolly gonna be here 'till next weekend, too. So I've got her laptop, but I'm really just chilling and watching netflix with her to keep us both happy. For those of you who do so, keep us in your prayers; she needs to get a count of at least 3 on her white blood cells before they'll let her go again, and it's at 1.7 right now. So we're definitely gonna be here through Thanksgiving. I'm going to maybe be home tonight, but I'm totally just gonna chill in front of the TV and unwind a little bit before coming back up to spend more time with her. But either way I'm gonna prolly be offline around here for a while; maybe 'till into next week. If you want to talk, you can always drop a comment or send me an email.

So that's what's happening with me. NGL, Tumblr's been seeing a lot of me the past couple days because it's so addictive easy(I helped motivate Tumblr's SPN fandom to get Jared to win the Portrait Mag contest!). In one way, her getting sick kinda fell on the best time possible, because I don't have school this week and I can spend all my time looking after her. On the other hand, I've got finals in a couple weeks, applications to work on for next year, GISHWHES, my mini big bang to finish, and a myriad of little stuff that needs to be done before the end of the year. But I'm still really glad that I get to be here for her. I'd much rather be here than her be alone. So, there's that.

And that's RL. Thankfully all the nurses here have been so incredibly nice to us both, it's amazing. And our doctor is an angel, literally. So there've definitely been upsides.


Moving into a much less serious note...because everyone knows I love a good meme, and I love my ships to a pretty unhealthy degree, so this is a nice win-win. Boo-yah. Snagged from my girl [livejournal.com profile] yappichick

1. Think of up to 20 ships you support. (DX ONLY TWENTY, NOT ENOUGHH)
2. List them using descriptions of the characters involved rather than their names.
3. Have your audience guess as many of the ships as they can.
4. Fandom hints will be given if asked in the comments.

some of these are so cheesy

I am not surprised at how fast everyone got these, ROTFL )

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.

thoughts?

re: scripts/deleted scenes and what is the word-of-God-canon material. If it was in the original draft, is it canon? What about later drafts? What about deleted scenes? Are the only things canon those we see onscreen as a part of the episode/movie itself? What about retconning; does it count if it's subtle and sensible, and not when it's whacky and odd? Or how about things stated during interviews/cons? Is it more canon if a writer says it vs. a producer vs. and actor(in this case, talking about a character)? What if the writers make a mistake early on and then fix it later in canon and interviews; is the original true, or is what they fixed it as the canon?

I've always been pretty liberal with what I consider canon, including deleted scenes and scenes that were in the filming drafts but got dropped for time or whatever, as well as stuff explicitly stated by writers/producers during interviews. Heck, I even consider most tie-ins canon. And I have no problem with tasteful retconning, most of the time. But I've noticed that a lot of fandom is very, very, very picky about what is canon and what isn't, to the point of discrediting and ignoring retcons and even things the writers themselves say was supposed to happen(I remember the crazy that went down when Joe Mallozzi stated that the writers had planned on a John and Teyla relationship, but hadn't gotten the chance to play it out).

So does most of this stem from fanatical fans who want to believe what they think is right, or are people too burned off trusting the people who create their shows?
IDK. Offer your thoughts. Is defining canon more of a show-by-show, fandom-by-fandom kinda thing?


*This post is brought to you by my wandering brain, How long Sam spent at Standford, and the script for Merlin 4x03. You're welcome.
majorshipper: (MERLS: Arthur (pull to open))
I asked this over at [livejournal.com profile] merlin_finders, but I figure some of y'all on my flist might know where I could find these...so, because I'm lazy, the c+p from my post over there.

I've searched everywhere I can think of to find this picture, with no luck, and so I was hoping one of you lovely people might be able to help. It's a promotional image, with Arthur in chainmail with his sword leaning on his shoulder, and he's smiling. Any help with that is amazing! <3

And another general request; I'm looking for any pics of Arthur or Bradley smiling. High quality is preferred, but anything is super awesome. The only thing I don't want is pictures with Bradley's scruff, but otherwise I'm looking for anything. Thank you so much for anyone who can help with either of these! :)

Screencaps are more than welcome, as well.

I'm finally getting around to trying to make a manip...and for the life of me I can't find a good pic of Arthur or Bradley smiling! It's pretty sad...all the promo images of Arthur are him looking ~tough, and Bradley doesn't go to many events like Angel, so that's a no-go...arg. Yeah. Aside from not being able to find a good pic for Arthur, it's starting to look pretty dang good, I think. For a first try, that is.
Anywhos! If you can help, it's great, if you can't I still love you :D

Happy Thanksgiving, to all of my American friends! For the rest of you...happy November 25th! :D

Finally finishing this up! Next I start 30 days of Stargate & 30 days of DW...maybe XD

Day 26 - OMG WTF? Season finale
Not exactly a season finale, but for the sake of this day, it fits. The Pandorica Opens(Doctor Who) takes the cake, I think. When it ended I definitely felt like stuff just got ~serious. Honorable mention goes to The Rising(John Doe) with it's last scene. Every time I see it I still get a OMGG WHAT WAS THAT!? feeling...especially since it's not like we're gonna get a resolution.

Day 27 - Best pilot episode
Ummmm...lol best Pilot. Sanctuary for all(Sanctuary) was awesome...I loved the pilot for Primeval, too. Human Target had a really awesome pilot too. And of course, Children of the Gods was EPICNESS, especially the new version they just released.
Um, I know there are awesome ones, but I really can't think of them XD

Day 28 - First TV show obsession
Stargate SG-1 (lol I'm sure most of you know this) all the way. I never watched any of the other classic TV shows of the 90s, mostly because I was either in the middle of nowhere on a farm or because I was too young to even comprehend that there was a TV (yup, I don't even remember having a TV 'till maybe '95). Then we moved away from the farm and I found Stargate and..well, the rest, as they say, is history. Stargate got me online in '07 and brought me to LJ and twitter last year :D

Day 29 - Current TV show obsession
Really I'm not obcessing atm. I'm watching the Sarah Jane Adventures, but otherwise, nothing new. But I'm gearing up for the Merlin finale, Doctor Who Christmas special, and the return of Primeval...so there's all that on the horizon :D

Day 30 - Saddest character death
The answer to this one was honestly going to be Ashely Magnus, until I saw The End of Time for the first time. So I'd say Ten's regeneration is probably it, even if I love Eleven.

Comment and I'll pick five of your interests! You post about those interests in your journal!


[livejournal.com profile] myfloralbonnet picked these interests of mine(LOL I SO NEED TO UPDATE MY INTERESTS); john/teyla, arthur/gwen, morgause, icons, zpms

John/Teyla; Hee! They will always and forever be one of my favorite ships. They would be the reason I found FF.net, then Gateworld, then Solutions, and then here. I just love the dynamic and unspoken love. They are one of the few ships I ship that isn't canon, but I really don't care because they are still one of my favorite ships.

Arthur/Gwen; Them be legendary. What can I say, I'm a sucker for meant to be couples. And they are very meant to be. I love their dynamic, I love the angst, I love the quiet attraction, I love everything. ♥♥♥ So adorable and completely in love and I can't wait for tonight's episode.

Morgause; I've always been fascinated by Morgause's character in Merlin. Up until this season, her motives have been kinda unknown, and coupled with her shady background and possible family connections, that makes her so interesting to me. [livejournal.com profile] sophielou21 and I have had many interesting discussions about her past and motives and connections, all of which have been really interesting and contributed to my love of the character. There's so many different ways they could take her, and I really hope they don't do something horrible with her character.

Icons; I make 'em, collect 'em, drool over 'em, love 'em. 'Nuff said XD

ZPMs; LOL I added this one ages ago, and it wasn't as a joke at the time. I really was interested in ZPMs, 'cause um, the science of how they worked actually was interesting. Yeah, I watch science fiction for the science, mainly.


Reply to this post, and I will tell you my favorite icon of yours. Then post this to your own journal using your own favorite icon.


Now I'm off to watch and cap last night's Sanctuary ep! ♥
majorshipper: (Default)
First off, I TAKE BACK EVERYTHING I SAID ABOUT ANDROMEDA S4 NOT BEING VERY GREAT. It has Steve Bacic in it! (well, the last 3/4...before that it was rather not-so-good) Yeah, I think it says a lot about my fangirlish nature that an entire season can be redeemed by a hot new guy and a ship that I jumped on faster than Harper/Rommie.
So, it looks like I shouldn't say what I don't like, 'cause it's gonna come back and make me like it.
Anywho, on to day twelve.

Day 12 - An episode you've watched more than 5 times
This amuses me to no end, 'cause on several shows (Stargate SG-1, SGA, Doctor Who(S5), Merlin, Primeval, Sherlock, Sanctuary, etc.) I've seen ALL of the episodes more than five times. Still. I can name a few off the top of my head; Window of Opportunity, Unending (SG-1), The Last Man, Rising, Conversion (SGA), Sweet Dreams, The Last Dragonlord (Merlin), The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang, The Eleventh Hour, (DWS5-I don't think I could list all the Doctor/Rose eps I've watched 5+ times lol)...and so you get the idea. On some I've watched the episodes a dozen times and I'm still not tired of it/love it (SG-1 FTW!).



The Days )
majorshipper: (bright like the sun we'll shine)
I updated my profile with a pretty banner and a new layout...I think I'm kinda sorta in love with it ;D Especially the banner...I'm rather proud of it LOL :)
 
Day 09 - Best scene ever
Ekk! Okay, so I'm horrible with picking favorites/least favorites (have you guessed that yet?), but as of right now, only one scene springs to mind; when Balinor dies in "The Last Dragonlord" (Merlin). The acting on Colin's part is really great, and just the whole scene, concept behind the scene, and performances just blow me away every time. I pretty much end up sobbing every single time I watch that episode, and that's the scene that sets me off. Some people might wonder why I picked such a sad scene for the best scene ever, but that's because I thrive on the emotional angsty-ness of it. I dunno why, but I love the stuff that gets me attached and then yanks the heartstrings (Oh hai der Ten, why the lurking?). I'm sure there are plenty of other scenes for all kinds of shows that I could have picked, but I can't think of them at the moment, and that scene is one that always sticks with me anyway.
