There was a lot of it. As I told Jen, it was a hair massacre! Pictures of what came off under the cut, though none of my snazzy new 'do because I roll sideways and don't do pictures of me online. Suffice it to say I really like it. My hair's too thick to have it look exactly like Hannah's but, I really like it. And I can wear hats! (I am wearing one now and I look ~good~)
Everyone at church tonight was awesome and loved it too.

scaring images! HAIR! Dead hair! Everywhere! Needless violence against hair! )

Yet another rec, I'm sorry, but I just can't help it.
Running Up That Hill
713 Coda - Gen - Sam & Dean - The days that Sam doesn’t go running are the bad days. The day after Emma is a bad day.
;________; Dean's inner voice will break your heart, and poor Sam is quite beleaguered too.

But holy shit, this fic has got one of the most amazing, coolest, most badass apocalyptic showdown...ever. Like, I've read a lot of fic, and a lot in this particular genre, but this is so cool I just cannot deal. The final showdown is so epic, like, literally. And you don't even realize the awesomeness that's slotting into place until it's there...and then that ending(to the apocalypse).
Seriously. The only other thing I can compare it to is Named, and even then, their awesomenesses are in two different hemispheres.
GO READ IT.

Title: Dies Irae, or Something
Author: Alchemy Alice
Rating: PG-13
Total Word Count: ~50,000
Genre and/or Pairing: Action/Adventure/Romance! Dean/Castiel, Sam/Gabriel, Michael
Spoilers: Season 5 up to Episode 10.
Warnings: Apocalyptic violence, slash (obvi), multitudinous references to Biblical events that are then misused with blatant disregard for accuracy. Also, Good Omens references, and hella bad language. In other words, fun for all!
Summary: It starts with headaches, and it ends in a clusterfuck. So, business as usual, Apocalypse-wise.


Since I'm telling people what to do now, apparently, go vote for Dean/Cas at the now-infamous poll!
majorshipper: (♂ dean winchester has been saved)

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*
majorshipper: (♂ darling don't be afraid)
Basically, it breaks down, in an interesting way, why Dean behaves the way he does to Sam, and, because that's kinda the point of the post, Cas. It's about homophobia in SPN, and why Dean/Cas will never be explorable because of the way the characters are, but, it includes some pretty spot-on stuff about Dean's character in the midst of that, and how he is who he is because of his relationships with John and Sam.

more talking from me, and links, but cut to save your flist )


Something that the OP's reply made me think of; Evil!Cas, or the idea of Cas, the once-righteous angel, turning bad, or doing the wrong things for the right things. It's no secret that I adore twists that reveal my favorite characters to be in fact bad guys, or when a good guy goes bad. I was excited during the first mid-season finale of White Collar at the prospect that final scene brought up(you know the one; hotel room, Kate, and the ring). I was excited during the last episode of Sherlock's first season when Sherlock first sees John at the pool. The very first time I watched my first SPN episode, Lucifer Rising, when I saw one of the main characters, a good guy, or so I assumed from what I'd seen of fandom, when I saw Sam torture the demon and then kill Lilith, effectively going darkside, I thought, Wow, that's brave. That's exciting.. I was excited at the end of Mommy Dearest when we discovered what was going on. It may be a kink of mine. Check that, it probably is. But the fact is, I love it. I love it when good guys go bad, especially if they do the wrong things for the right reasons, if the road they take is the good-intentions path to hell. Which is why, even though my heart was breaking into a million little pieces on the floor, I was actually really excited during the latter half of S6 and 701.
And, I want to know where these stories are. Are writers too afraid to actually take their characters darkside and let them stay there? It's a bold more, it's hard to do, and it does alienate fanbase sometimes, but I think it's one of the coolest things I've seen. They don't even have to make the character permanently bad! They can include a redemption arc, 'cause those are awesome too. But, think about it. How often does that happen? I know it happened in Buffy at some point, right? I only know because I actually considered watching Buffy when I found out But where else does it happen? SPN? Kinda? It's a trope that I don't find enough, be it in shows or in fanfic. And that makes me sad, actually.
EVEN MY MUSIC IS RELEVANT, OMG. Seeing as Walk Away is about the speaker telling his girl to walk away because he's dangerous and will never let her get away from him if she stays, because he's found himself in a bad place. analyzed

But now that I'm inspired on the subject, I'm totally gonna go write that next-gen fic I have promised [livejournal.com profile] lunasky3.

ALSO I JUST REALIZED I STILL HAVE NOT SEEN THE DOCTOR WHO CHRISTMAS SPECIAL. And. I'm not too bothered. I guess I'll have to watch it at some point, though.
majorshipper: (Text - Dork side)
That I can view my entire flist, comms and journals, in a reasonable amount of time. I've stopped watching quite a few comms, and I think it's because pretty much most shows are pretty quite right, now, but, hey, getting back into the swing of fandom is a good thing, right?

OH ALSO. Everyone needs to go read [livejournal.com profile] lunasky3's Mafia!AU Sam/Lucifer fic and [livejournal.com profile] princess_aleera's fic in the same 'verse of Dean being a detective and also kinda a jerk but loving Sam and having to deal with Cas's soul-staring.
YOU KNOW YOU WANNA.

The Return of Livejournal
by Neal Ungerleider

LiveJournal, one of the web's most popular early blogging sites, is launching a comeback in the United States. Their plans for 2012 include massive changes for users. Oh, and "Game Of Thrones" creator George R.R. Martin is a big user.

Read more if you're interested in some of the history and dynamics of LJ and the screwing over we know is to come )

I'm not a huge fan of Loki/[livejournal.com profile] secretlytodream(the vidder) normally, but this vid is simply mind-blowing. It rolls out slow and close and just unfurls into the vastness (and closness) that is all the promises made that couldn't ever be kept, all the words that were said that meant so much, all the lives and deaths they've changed through, and eventually, what remains the same. Just, ugh, all the feelings. Most excellent example of why I love show and why Sam and Dean are just heartbreakingly perfectly sad. It's funny, because I was just explaining to my brother why Supernatural is both the worst and best show I watch. It's the only one I actually participate in fandom in anymore, and I've made tons of amazing friends in it. The mytharc is broad and expansive and amazing without being too complex with some truly stunning writing and creativity. But it's also the worst, because you can see how far it's falling downhill, how much potential exists that isn't ever going to be explored, and that makes it miserable.

~*~ALL THE FEELINGS~*~

If you haven't already heard about SOPA/PIPA, then I really think you should check it out. Seriously. It's a massive set of legislature that in a nutshell gives big companies the right to control what websites exist and what you can see. The program's censorship level is comparable to China and Iran's systems. Many, many, many people are against it, because they recognize the threat to free speech it represents. In two weeks it goes to vote.
On January 18th, many websites are going to be going dark to protest this bill. You can petition various sites here. You can find out more, petition your senators/representatives, and get generally enraged at the situation here

It's a very big deal; if it goes through, life on the internet as we know it will change.


This break in your regular fangirl has been brought to you by important shit. On to the scheduled programming;

Supernatural tonight! *bounces* Yes, this is exciting. I might be able to watch it on TV! Not sure, since it depends on if I can convince the 'rents to go to bed instead of watching NCIS, which, of course, will be difficult, but, eh, who knows. We shall see! I'm going to try bribery with pizza and breadsticks.

Also, apparently The Chew has become my newest love. Me and mum watch it every day practically. I can't help it. They had Hugh Jackman and then Bobby Flay.

(Hi new friends! Usually I'm a lot less serious, unless I get really riled up. But, yeah. Welcome to the insanity!)
majorshipper: (SW - Emperor's Hand)
Accomplished. \o/ Now that's the last thing I'm buying 'till I go back to work. Honest to God promise. Cross my heart. I was gonna get that Def Leppard Pyromania shirt, but I think Star Wars > Def Leppard for me, as much as I love my music. And I'm pretty sure the AC/DC and Def Leppard shirts were more expensive than the Ript apparel one.
I still need to buy a new pen for my tablet (since I stupidly dropped the other one in my glass of water) and something else very important that escapes me right now with my next check, so I'm officially tied down. I can't wait for summer so I can get more hours somewhere.

In other news, holy shit, someone find a defibrillator, because have you seen the promo pics for SPN 7x12? Not to spoil anyone...but..JFC, Jensen. *_____________* Nobody should be allowed to look that good. I mean, normal regular human beings can never match up to that. Even the king of fitted three-piece suits and hats (Neil ♥) has got some competition here.

I officially nominate him for the lead in the next film-noir/Dick Tracy detective-style film.
majorshipper: (♂ a day to remember you by)
So I was just scrolling through my flist when [livejournal.com profile] missyjack linked to this post by [livejournal.com profile] hells_half_acre about Irene Adler and why fandom has ~feelings~ about her. The title is Women, Sex, And Power - A Rant, so know that's what you're getting into. But it's still a fantastic look at Irene in BBC's Sherlock.

I got into a very, very interesting discussion with [livejournal.com profile] hells_half_acre in the comments of that entry, and it directed me to these posts of hers, on the subject of Love (and Slash). Both are very, very interesting reads for anyone who gets slash, doesn't get slash, likes slash, likes gen, likes SPN, doesn't like SPN, loves Sherlock, doesn't care about Sherlock...etc. Everyone. She makes some very interesting observations on society's perception of sexuality in relationships.

The points brought up at first glace seem almost asexual to most people's(mainly misguided) perceptions, but that's just an overreaction to the fact that everything in today's society is so hyper-sexualized, and so something without that sex is seen as oddly lacking in sex(even when it was never supposed to have sex in the first place, hence the perceived asexuality). The original three articles are all short and to-the-point and very well enunciated. So what are you still doing reading my measly words? gogogogogo!

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: (➘ home of the best cookies ever)
You know that feeling when you're pushing and pushing to get through with something so you can get to the break...and then you realize you're just going to have to work and push through the break too?
Yeah, I'm at that point. Looking at my to-do list and how much of it has to be done before Christmas and NY and I'm kinda just reeling. I want to curl up in a corner and watch ridiculous movies and eat popcorn and candy canes for the rest of the year.
Egh. Life. Why you so...full?

In other news, thanks everyone for the well wishes for the benefit! It was good...not as well as we had hoped, and a lot of stuff in the auction went for a lot lower than we'd hoped, but, at least it was something. Trying to divy up what goes where is hard, though, since it's not enough to pay off all of one thing. Just one thing at a time, pretty much, just like always.

Me and the brother finally sat through and watched X-Men: First Class all the way through, finally. I've only got one remarks; yeah, tumblr was totally right, because it's basically one big gay epic Greek tragedy. Everything was sadness by the end. And Charles was kinda unrealistic and an idiot, but I won't get into that too much. Basically, it was good, but, pretty much only on the same level as the other X-Men movies. Certainly not comparable to the rest of the Marvel crop from recently.

Also, posted my [livejournal.com profile] sassy_minibang artwork! The author's gonna put up the main post to the site later(speaking of which, y'all should totally go check out the stories they've gotten. I've only had time to read, like, four of the fics, but they were fantastic), but I won't be around 'till tomorrow afternoon late, so I put mine up tonight. It's over here, for anyone interested!

I've also been working on a 2014 Dean/Cas mix., which has been a...difficult process, as anyone who's been around me during [livejournal.com profile] ontd_spnparty's FFAs can attest to my whining about it. But it's done! And now I have to wait to post it to avoid spamming my comm. But, I figured, hey, I've got people on my flist who'd probably be interested in a peek at it, so here's the covers, if you like;
under a cut because woah, they're pretty big )

ETA: Woah, LJ. Makeover much? First reaction; I DON'T LIKE ITTT GO BAAAACKK. As soon as there's a Stylish fix for it, I'm probably going back.

ETA2: Now I'm gonna go curl up with my printed up fic and work on my piece for [livejournal.com profile] erasureathon.

ETA3 aka last one I swear: They did fix the tags page! It's not, like, two inches wide anymore!
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 one in the dirty trenchcoat)
LOL. On one hand, excite. On the other, damn it, they better not screw this up any more than I know is gonna happen. And I say that as someone who wasn't super thrilled but was content with the previous arrangement for this season so far.

(for those on my flist who are avoiding SPN spoilers for unaired episodes, don't go into the comments, because there will be some)

LOL POSTED THIS AND CARRY ON STARTED PLAYING.

In better news, I went back to Science Club this week! Dad caved, as I had hoped he would, and set down some ridic rules that shouldn't be to hard to follow.
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) )
majorshipper: (Default)
It seems like all the shows are trying to make everyone sad for the holidays. Yay. *sobs* Seriously, though. I don't cry at TV, really, no matter how I dramatize doing so. I can count on one hand the number of TV episodes I've cried over. And this SPN episode mad the list.
My heart.


In a much more important note, check this out! AWARENESS, YESSSS!
majorshipper: (♕ we could have had it all princess)
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 )
majorshipper: (✆ in the begining)
I'm hooked on Psych. It's so awesome. Watched the pilot and first couple of episodes last night, and they were fantastic. It's just the right balance between hilarious and ridiculous and awesome. :D

Anddd...I dl'd the episodes of Sanctuary I haven't seen this season. Apparently Tesla's in one, and I kinda like being all caught up, even if I'm not at all as into it as I was.

Finally! There is some absolutely fantastic meta and talk over here about Supernatural 708. If you're into objectively examining fandom or offering your opinions on it, gooooo check it out. The original post does a pretty good job of laying out the situation and asking questions that cut pretty well to the heart of fandom's issues with what happened. And the variety of responses is fascinating from an observational point of view. fandom can have an active discussion without falling apart into ugliness!

So I was going through my bookmarks looking for something to make me feel better about the mess that was friday's episode and the horrible characterizations and just something fluffy in general, when I stumbled onto this one;

Your Apple Pie Suburban Hell Happily Ever After (7676 words) by favicontuesday
Fandom: Supernatural
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Castiel/Dean Winchester, Becky Rosen/Chuck Shurley, Lucifer/Sam Winchester, Dean Winchester/Lisa Braeden
Characters: Dean Winchester, Becky Rosen, Castiel, Sam Winchester, Chuck Shurley, Lisa Braeden, Bobby Singer, Lucifer (Supernatural), Michael (Supernatural)
Summary: In which Becky and Dean search for Chuck and Sam, Castiel discovers a love of milkshakes, Sam regrets being a good Samaritan, and Lucifer is still entirely too interested in Sam's body for Sam's peace of mind.

IT IS LIKE THE BEST AU OF S6/7 EVER. And parts of it are so echo-y of S7, even though this was written long before S7 and even S6. Aaaannnyways. In case anyone else is in need of a good fix-it style fic.
