sherrilina: (Arya Stark (Game of Thrones))
Ugh once again I find myself angry and disappointed by the Emmy nominations, I don't know why I even bother to expect anything different...*sigh*

My main beef is the way The Borgias once again got snubbed in all of the major categories, especially acting when such average performances as Mr. Bates, Anna, and the Earl of Grantham got recognized, what the hell?! I mean I love me some Downton Abbey, even enjoyed season 2 unlike most of fandom, but it certainly did not deserve to get SO many awards, especially at the expense of better shows that were ignored. (And if they wanted to insist on giving it that many acting ones, they couldn't have given nods to the more talented cast members like Laura Carmichael?) Michelle Dockery can get it though, hope she wins. And I hope The Borgias at least win in some of the technical categories it was nominated in, like music (the music in the finale was stunning) and costumes...should have been nominated for art direction too (one of the most beautiful shows I've ever seen), but oh well. It irritates me though when I see people complaining that Game of Thrones got screwed over or "hosed" because hello, YOU GOT BEST DRAMA AND BEST ACTOR THAT IS PRETTY MAJOR FOR A GENRE SHOW! /rant

Also rooting for Community to win for "Remedial Chaos Theory" (glad it got that at least, ugh) and for Veep (which was very funny and deserved recognition, though I feel it had a big advantage being on HBO, which seems to be where the nominators look first regardless of quality). And I was delighted to see Portlandia nominated for "One Episode More" (the BSG epp, and the only one I've seen actually, lol), because it is so accurate and clever! ;) But yeah, I don't think I will be watching, as usual. It's funny, I watch so much TV these days, and yet the Oscars are still a much bigger deal for me.


+ After 2.5 months of working on it, I finally finished reading Game of Thrones! Unfortunately too late to read the copy of ACOK I borrowed from my GG-and-GoT-loving classmate, since there's only 2 weeks (!!) left in the program and she moves away right after...but I'll find it somewhere else. I'm just happy to be finally done, each of these are so damn long it feels like a real accomplishment, lol.

I was impressed by how well they condensed this monster into the TV show and keep it mostly faithful. I wonder though, will we ever learn more about certain things like Rhaegar and Lyanna (what did she want Ned to promise her?), etc? Because that was a bit of intriguing backstory for me that was mostly cut from the show and which I wanted to know about...and then Ned died before dreaming more about it. :/ But looking back, I do think that aside from Roz and the sexposition scenes a lot of the things HBO added improved on the book, like showing Renly and Loras (explaining why he decided to contest for the crown and showing their relationship) and giving us more insights into Cersei, like that scene with Robert...

And of course Dany/Drogo was waaaay more shippable in the show, IMO, aside from the first scene. I found in interesting the way HBO changed that one scene where she tries to convince her husband to try to take the Iron Throne for her, making it into that intimate scene of her doing his hair when in the book they've just finished sex--amazed that HBO didn't take advantage of that for their usual female nudity quota! Also just the acting, the pain and panic in his voice when he almost lost her, which doesn't translate as well in the books...

One thing I found just as shippable though (if unrequited) was Dany/Ser Jorah...loved how desperate he was in the end when he thought she was going to kill herself! Honestly I don't find much that's shippable in this book so I have to go with what I can. Likewise Jon Snow was JUST as annoying and emo and useless in the book as on the show, contrary to what I had heard. The only way the books are better is that on the show he looks like he's in his mid-20s while he's acting 15, which makes it all so much worse.

Oh and it was nice to have everyone's names spelled out this time, made it easier to follow than it is on the show...for example I totally did not catch that the guy who torments Jon Snow on the wall, Yoren, was the same guy who helped Arya escape from King's Landing. And getting Sansa's inner voice was very interesting, you can better see how her whole worldview changes...


From a cursory flip-through ACOK though, did they move all the Jaimie and Brienne stuff from SoS into season 2 then? :s Since I notice they didn't have POV chapters in book 2...

+ I also finally finished watching Arrested Development for the first time, after starting it on Netflix about a year ago, lol. I hadn't known s3 wasn't a full season so the end took me by surprise....not sure how I feel about some of the twists, but it made for a good finale. I kind of worry about how the "new" season will be, thought it's neat they are actually bringing it back!

+ And finally I snagged this "Guess the Ship" meme from [livejournal.com profile] rosaxx50 (I meant to do this when it emerged like a year ago, but um better late than never):

(1) Think of 15 ships you support.
(2) List them using descriptions of the characters involved rather than their names.
(3) Have your f-list guess as many of the ships as they can.


1) London teen helps war survivor heal from trauma as they hold hands through time and space. (Doctor/Rose guessed by [livejournal.com profile] sunnytyler001)

2) Brother and sister are each other's romantic ideals and the only other ones who understand each other's literary references. (Cesare/Lucrezia guessed by [livejournal.com profile] sunnytyler001)


3) Co-dependent king and ward are miserable without each other's love despite their ever greater clashes of wills. (Uther/Morgana guessed by [livejournal.com profile] sunnytyler001)

4) He continues to see and interact with his non-human girlfriend after her death, sometimes holding hands with thin air in public. (Jeremy/Anna guessed by [livejournal.com profile] rosaxx50)

5) A pair of young people from very different parts of the city find companionship and love through mutual intellectual interests. (Dan/Blair guessed by [livejournal.com profile] rosaxx50)

6) Two curly-haired dead flatmates feel alive when they're together. (Mitchell/Annie guessed by [livejournal.com profile] sunnytyler001)

7) A couple of pirates with intense chemistry are more alike than either is willing to admit. (Jack/Elizabeth guessed by [livejournal.com profile] rosaxx50)

8) An egoist unexpectedly falls in love with someone besides himself; she falls for him too despite her mission and beliefs. (Gaius/Six guessed by [livejournal.com profile] blasterboy606)

9) He makes her feel warm and whole and helps her cope with a devastating loss; she breaks his heart. (Jacob/Bella guessed by [livejournal.com profile] rosaxx50)

) He's rebelling against Heaven, she seeks power through the Church; when they're not trying to kill each other, they make out. (Marisa/Asriel guessed by [livejournal.com profile] rosaxx50)

11) Two nerds can relate to each other's pasts of unleashing apocalypses through hubris and alliances with demons. (*~SASSY~* guessed by [livejournal.com profile] probing_grays)

12) Two best friends often know what the other is thinking without speaking a word and are fiercely loyal to one another. (Harry/Hermione guessed by [livejournal.com profile] rosaxx50)

13) A criminal mastermind and a female police agent gradually develop friendship and romantic feelings despite being different species from different worlds. (Artemis/Holly guessed by [livejournal.com profile] hmsharmony)

14) Two kids grow closer while fighting in a war together, but are still too shy and awkward to ask each other to the school dance. (Jake/Cassie guessed by [livejournal.com profile] probing_grays)

15) A warrior and a seer become best friends and then something more, though outside forces prevent them from ever being together. (Cordy/Angel guessed by [livejournal.com profile] rosaxx50)


Also someone please rescue me from Tumblr.

First off, the last TVD epp gave me a lot of ~feelings:

There's a whole world out there waiting for you )

I also wanted to congratulate my bb Nina Dobrev for winning the PCA for Best Drama Actress as the first write-in candidate ever--girl sure deserved the recognition, she has mad talent and was much better than the other candidates she was up against aside from Emily Deschanel perhaps (how exactly does someone like Blake Lively get these kinds of nods, seriously?). So glad about that, though still pissed at CBS's lame snubs of SPN (might as well get another use out of my "cbs sucks" tag, lol).

Last night I actually ended up watching Bones live on the air for the first time in god, IDEK, maybe since the season 3 finale in 2008? I think so actually...it's a long story (I was taping TVD though). LOLing as always at the unrealistic fake!Smithsonian stuff but okay epp overall--I was a bit confused about the end though...

Quick Bones question for those who watched this epp )

Since I've also expanded my icon collection and fandoms a lot since I last did it, I decided to do this Icon Meme again as well.  I made a deliberate effort to use different icons from last time where possible, which affected some of my selections:

MAH ICONS 2.0 )

I also finally saw Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy last Sunday, good stuff, and so many big British actors, lol. In that respect I particularly enjoyed seeing Edith's little cameo. ;) So many movies I want to see right now though, god, like 7, IDK how I'll manage them all....

And here is an adorable picture of my birdie Punky sleeping for your time:



 
sherrilina: (Cesare/Lucrezia "My Love" (The Borgias))
First off, in my last post I meant to thank [livejournal.com profile] cuposunny and [livejournal.com profile] decadentdream for the holiday cards, [livejournal.com profile] thedoingofit and [livejournal.com profile] kilodalton for the vgifts, and [livejournal.com profile] nbaeker for the adorable holiday Treehaus fic! *hugs* I should have all of my cards sent off by tomorrow, I'm trying to finish them tonight (yes, I'm late, whatever! :p)

Anyway, has everyone seen the season 2 trailer for The Borgias yet? So epic-looking, even if some of the hairstyling looks a bit off (dammit Cesare, curly hair is evidently not for you! O_o)...I'd been dying for this, realizing that the s1 trailer had come out around this time last year, so I was so pleased we did finally get it! A few more thoughts:

Show me your hands, Cesare. Is it true what the rumors say, that they are stained with blood? )

I've needed this show back in my life like last week, is it April yet?! I'm excited for the fandom to pick up again in full swing as well...

I also realize I never quite got around to posting my thoughts on s1 here after the premiere (fail, self, fail), so I thought I'd repost my answers to The Borgias Season 1 in Review Meme I wrote for/posted on [livejournal.com profile] cesare_lucrezia last May:

Man, this seems to be "Characters Making Annoying Questionable Decision" Week on my TV Shows, it applies to all of them! :/ Though still a few good episodes besides that.

Let's start with SN, which I only watched last night, since I was busy marathoning s6 with [livejournal.com profile] paradisekendra on Friday, lol...(good times, and I like the DVD case art, the back of the plastic part has a promo of the OT3...;_;):

For all we know he's road-tripping with Lucifer somewhere! )

Also a few additional thoughts and ~feelings~ on Cas and his prospects, especially after the Gamble interviews last weeks...O_o

Some spoilers for the final Animorphs book if you care )

I've been really enjoying Vampire Diaries so far this season, but I see some of the same ~issues as last season are already cropping up....:/

There's going to be nine other people that brought chili )

I also broke down and watched the premiere of Merlin s4 at least....

His heart is broken, and his spirit is gone )

And then there was much worse writing fail and even more annoying questionable decisions in the Doctor Who finale last weekend (Happy DW Day, btw!), but I won't even go into that here because this post is long enough as it is....

Oh and with GG this week Dan/Blair were of course flawless as always, and really the only thing of interest left on this show, they just need to get together already, and I wish Chuck would crawl off and die in a hole with nobody caring about him. *sigh*

So there's this meme going around:

a) Reply with "Fuck yes fierce ladies (and awesome dudes, too)" and I'll give your four fandoms.

b)Write about your favourite character(s) for each fandom.


[livejournal.com profile] sunnytyler001 gave me "Doctor Who, The Borgias, SPN, and Dollhouse"!

By the end you are going to notice a pattern, I think...;) I have a type. All gifs from Tumblr, none of them mine...

Spoilers for Doctor Who, The Borgias, Supernatural, and Dollhouse )

I had hoped to post this earlier, but I got totally distracted by the epic win of the Supernatural season 6 gag reel...:p

Give me someone I like... )

What did you all think?

EDIT: Sorry if the post looks messed up, IDK why LJ keeps fucking up the html by automatically clicking "disable auto-formatting" for you whenever you try to edit, I mean WTF, why do they even have that, who would ever want to use it and undermine all their hmtl?! >:(

The other day I caught "The Doctor's Wife" re-running on BBCA and realized that I never really posted my thoughts on the rest of s6a after the premiere--and with the show coming back in less than a week (!), I figure I should do that sooner rather than later...



Random thoughts on s6 and upcoming s7 )


I've also been recently doing some Classic Who watching in an attempt to check out other Doctors...



'The Five Doctors' and 'Genesis of the Daleks Part 1' )


And over the summer I've done a fair bit of RTD!NuWho rewatching as well, now that I have been happily reunited with all my s1-4 DVDs, including introducing a half-British RL friend to her own culture the show! ;)  I've definitely noticed some new things, but mostly just feel all nostalgic for the good old days when I watch the epps; for me s1-4 is and always will be the Doctor Who that I truly love and enjoy most...



I C WUT UR DOIN THAR DOCTAH )


Speaking of DW, I also recently discovered the most amazing thing ever: SUPERWHO, the fandom marriage of Supernatural and Doctor Who on Tumblr! <333






I love it so much, it's like my two favorite shows combined as one! :DDDD (And some of these mannippers have mad talent!)


Also speaking of epic, amazing things produced by fandom, there is now a game in which you make Harry/Hermione kiss, as much as possible! :p I can't even, lol, my ship has a kissing game, it's the best thing ever, I'm already addicted (plus it's pretty/hot to watch!).

I'm sorry about this guy... )


I must say, this convention also revitalized my love for SN a lot, and after getting home I've begun rewatching SN epps instead of continuing my DW rewatch.  The many shitty SN fanvids I saw in between panels has also inspired me creatively, lol, it almost makes me want to sort out my program situation and begin vidding again.

I only had the chance to watch the finale(s) a few hours ago, earlier tonight with dinner, and luckily I managed to remain unspoiled before watching (I was super extra paranoid and didn't even open any notification emails of posts from those of you who I know watched SN to be on the safe side, let alone go anywhere else fandomy online).  My thoughts:

Major Spoilers for 6x21 and 6x22 )

With this finale, I only have The Borgias finale (tomorrow night, woot) and the rest of DW until its mid-season finale (incl. today's epp...does anyone know where they are breaking it up, btw?  6x06 or 6x07?) to watch in the near future (since I'm giving up on Camelot and Bones until August when I have time...although Bones I almost wish I was caught up and could watch, I've already unfortunately been spoiled on some plot points and am going to try to somehow stay unspoiled on the rest until then...O_o).  It's probably just as well hiatus is coming, since I now don't really have legit time to watch so much TV at this point....

So I snagged this meme from [livejournal.com profile] emo_dj_steph AGES ago, and have been working on it forever (which has been interesting since the ships have really moved around and changed over time--Caroline/Tyler appeared on the first list then moved to the second list then moved back up to the first list in the space of me starting and finishing this meme, Cesare/Lucrezia appeared on the first list then disappeared then appeared again, Dan/Blair made a brief appearance on the first list and Chuck/Blair appeared on the second list, etc), since any meme that requires more effort than bolding or ticky apparently takes me forever to complete...*facepalm* Also some of these questions were tricky for me, like "Ships you're curious about but don't ship", since everything I'm really curious about/interested in I tend to ship! But tonight for some reason I felt in the mood to finish this once and for all (and have stayed up far too late doing so, ugh, priorities, I need them), so here it is!

Major spoilers for s3 Being Human, s2 DW, and s2 Merlin, minor spoilers for Supernatural, Vampire Diaries, and The Borgias:

Ships that I do and do not ship... )

And while I'm at it, here's a Character Meme as well!  Pick any character from a fandom of mine and I'll answer the following questions:

    1) What is your opinion of this character? If you like, explain why you like him/her.
    2) Is he/she important to the general plot?
    3) Can you relate to this character at all? Does he/she grip you emotionally?
    4) How much do you like the fandom that this character comes from?
    5) Do you ship this character with any other character? Or, are you particularly intrigued by his/her relationship with any other character(s)? (romance-wise or platonic)
    6) Is there anything about the character you would change?
    7) If you were in the fandom with this character or knew this character in real life, how would you see yourself interacting with him/her?
    8) Does this character make the cut as one of your all time favorites (if you like) or least favorites?
    9) Would you hype up this character (if you like) or warn about this character (if you dislike) to someone new to fandom?
    10) Is this character popular with the fanbase?</em>

(Of course it might take me a while, erm, but it will happen, lol! ;))

sherrilina: (Ten (Doctor Who))
So tonight I'm pimping two different land/challenge communities that both have to do with the BBC/British Television:  [livejournal.com profile] merlin_land  and [livejournal.com profile] bbcland!

First there's [livejournal.com profile] merlin_land, where I am a proud co-Team Leader (along with the lovely [livejournal.com profile] blue_emotion) of the resident Team HBIC, otherwise known as Team Morgana! ;)


(banner by....[livejournal.com profile] blue_emotion.  Maker of all banners it seems...;))

Basically if you enjoy Merlin, or have ever done so in the past (and perhaps still wish to remain involved in the fandom even if you are no longer into the show so much, as in my case), if you enjoy doing fanart/fanfic/whathaveyou or discussing or just playing games, if you're looking for new friends in the fandom (I made several of my closest LJ friends on this comm!), if you just want to have FUN, then this is a place for you! :)  There are all kinds of different challenges for everyone, as you compete on different teams (Morgana, Merlin, Arthur) to get the most points.  Really, I'd say 90% of my creative output for Merlin has resulted from this comm, which pushed me to really write/complete fanfic for the first time, my first picspams, etc.

Then there's [livejournal.com profile] bbcland, which is similar to [livejournal.com profile] merlin_land (and you can do Merlin-related things), except that you can also play around with other BBC/British TV fandoms....like this:



There I am also a co-Team Leader, but this time of Team Sci-Fi, naturally! ;)  The other teams are Drama and History.  In both cases you don't have to participate in every challenge, only some of them, and many of them are quick ones for those crunched for time.

So if you are addicted to BBC shows, and would like to meet new people and have fun, then consider checking out these two comms! ;)

Also, while I'm at it, I forgot to mention in my last post that [livejournal.com profile] naty_seixas made a Tumblr for Cesare/Lucrezia that is affiliated with the [livejournal.com profile] cesare_lucrezia  comm, so all you Tumblr types who enjoy the pairing should check it out! ;)

And Happy Borgias Day everyone!  If anyone is interested in a live episode discussion post, there's one going on here! ;)

So tonight I'm pimping two different land/challenge communities that both have to do with the BBC/British Television:  [livejournal.com profile] merlin_land  and [livejournal.com profile] bbcland!

First there's [livejournal.com profile] merlin_land, where I am a proud co-Team Leader (along with the lovely [livejournal.com profile] blue_emotion) of the resident Team HBIC, otherwise known as Team Morgana! ;)

So once again my usual disinclination to write fic was broken by a challenge comm challenge, this time a "bad!fic" challenge at [livejournal.com profile] bbcland that provided several "bad fic" prompts to include (Mary Sues, random unpopular character deaths, etc) for a certain amount of points each.  I took the opportunity to write a satiric Merlin fic (given the direction of the show's writing lately) and my first Doctor/Rose fic (also a tad cracky). ;)  Thanks [livejournal.com profile] blue_emotion for the beta on both!

Title: Keeping it in the Family
Fandom: Merlin
Characters/Pairings: Uther, Arthur, Gwen, Arthur/Gwen (sort of?), Merlin, Arthur/Merlin…
Rating: PG
Warnings: None
Word Count: 963
Note: Cracky AU written for a “badfic” challenge at [livejournal.com profile] bbcland  to the prompts of “a character’s parentage is suddenly altered” (funny how this badfic prompt is found in the actual show writing, ahem *rolleyes*), “a Mary Sue or a Gary Stu,” and “an unpopular character is killed off and none of the other characters care (even if they would)”. I do like Gwen to be clear, more or less, but as far as fandom she’s often a less popular character, hence that choice.
Summary: Uther gives Arthur some unwelcome news about Gwen and Merlin’s respective true parentages, putting a kink in Arthur’s attempts to find love until an unexpected, very convenient solution arrives at Camelot….(aka nothing that couldn’t be on the show itself, lol—kind of mocking the absurd writing of late on Merlin with this one! ;)).

Was there any potential love interest he could find who wouldn’t turn out to be related to him?  )

Title: The Real Bad Wolf
Fandom: Doctor Who
Characters/Pairings: Ten, Rose, Ten/Rose
Rating: G
Warnings: None
Word Count: 358
Note: Sort of cracky AU, written for a “badfic” challenge at [livejournal.com profile] bbcland, to the prompt of “a character becomes a vampire or werewolf”…
Summary: Rose gets scratched by the infected and unamused Victoria during “Tooth and Claw,” and becomes a werewolf…bad puns ensue!

I guess you’d really be ‘the Bad Wolf’ then! )

Feedback appreciated, even if these are technically "bad!fics," lol...:)
