sherrilina: (Cesare/Lucrezia: Team BAMF (The Borgias))


It's March now, which means Fandom March Madness--and all the attending wank and intensity--has begun! And as usual, I am already caught up in it and way too obsessive over the way the voting is going, lol. I am annoyed at the arbitrary nature of what was included this year, namely in Drama--I don't know why for example shows like House of Cards that literally only started a month or so ago are included, but current shows that were in it LAST year, like The Borgias (which also have smaller fandoms, if they are going with that argument) were not--it's total BS, and this was my reaction when I first noticed it wasn't on the list:



And then this is my reaction to all of the morons who keep writing in the names of shows that are ALREADY IN THE BRACKETS FFS, wasting their votes because they have no reading comprehension:



*sigh* So PLEASE, if you haven't voted already, and you have a spare moment in the next half hour or so (voting closes at 12 pm EST), please consider nominating THE BORGIAS in the Drama category--I'm really worried about whether it will have enough votes to land one of the two top slots. :/

I'm also rooting for The Americans in the Drama category (I'm all caught up now and it is my favorite new show, SO GOOD, you should all be watching!), Battlestar Galactica in Sci-Fi/Fantasy (I have been looking forward to stanning for it in FMM since I caught up, and thanks to "Blood and Chrome" coming out recently it is still eligible!), and Veep in Comedy--so if you could support those as well, that would also be cool!

Vote HERE.

What are you guys stanning for this year?

So I've spent the last few days marathoning Community like crazy and I'm finally all caught up! I loved it, only wish I discovered this gem earlier. My thoughts:

Me and Abed have an agreement. If one of us dies, we stage it to look like a suicide caused by the unjust cancellation of Firefly... )

+ Today I also finally caught up on Once Upon a Time just in time for its return this Sunday! :) A few thoughts on this show as well...

No matter what you do, I will always find you )

+ For those of you who are Cesare/Lucrezia fans, there is a commentfic meme going on right now over at [livejournal.com profile] cesare_lucrezia, check it out!



+ This is random, but I also was stamped as Morgana in a recent [livejournal.com profile] merlin_land challenge, and feel honored! <3 ;) Still need to finish season 4 of Merlin...



+ I saw The Adventures of TinTin last night, and while visually stunning, it was one of the excruciatingly boring, interminable 2 hours of my life...:/ I think sadly it's one of those things you have to be a fan of already to really appreciate (unless you are a kid). Another Moffat gutter-ball for me.

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! ;)

sherrilina: (Cesare/Lucrezia (The Borgias))
So as anyone who follows me on Tumblr has probably noticed already, I have a shiny new fandom obsession/favorite TV show: Showtime's The Borgias!  :D  I  had been ridiculously excited for this show since seeing the trailer last January, so naturally when I heard that the premiere had been leaked early I had to watch it (as I finally managed to do the Monday before last, March 21).  It not only failed to disappoint, but quite exceeded my already high expectations! :D  I am now already completely obsessed/in love with this show, and I can't wait until it premieres "officially" and we can get the next episode!  <3333 (The promos and pics and clips from 1x03 are already killing me). 

Likewise while I was already shipping Cesare/Lucrezia from the trailer and shippy promo pics alone, after this episode they are my new favorite pairing (and definitely favorite incest-ship, lol).  They have so much chemistry and smoldering UST (especially from Cesare's end), but at the same time they are so close and sweet and tender with each other, so protective and affectionate and devoted, they have both fluffy moments and plenty of angst, and have the whole "forbidden/doomed love" thing going for them since they are siblings--it's like the best of all kinds of ships rolled into one beautiful pairing!  ♥

I love them so much that, along with [livejournal.com profile] lucyskyx, I've begun an LJ comm for them (my first ever!), which I encourage any of you who enjoy this goodbadwrong pairing (whether from the premiere or just the trailers, lol) to join, if you haven't already! :) (Banner by [livejournal.com profile] blue_emotion)

It's going pretty well so far, we already have over 100 members (even though the show has yet to officially air, lol), I'm very excited about it all! :)  I also finally cracked and bought myself extra userpics since I was out of space and I *needed* to have an icon of these two. ;)  Anyway, more specific/spoilery thoughts on the show and its premiere (1x01-1x02):

If anything happened to her...I’d die. )

Seriously, you ALL need to watch this show, I have NEVER fallen for a show so much after just one episode, it's definitely the best premiere/pilot I've ever seen (a much stronger start than The Tudors to be sure!).  I just want to draw hearts around this premiere/show, it gives me a goofy grin on my face just thinking about it...if it keeps it up (and all signs indicate it will), it had BETTER get a shit-ton of Emmy nominations and awards, or there is no justice in this world (especially since it's not only amazing, but more of the type of show the Emmy's nominates from).  Right now it's looking like it's going to be Best Drama material for sure.  There's a reason why this show already has an "army of stans" as one commenter on [livejournal.com profile] ohnotheydidnt put it (before promptly watching and declaring herself a complete stan as well)! ;)

sherrilina: (Morgana (Merlin))
So thanks to all of you who voted before for Morgana in [profile] sunshine_hippie's HBIC (Head B*tch in Charge) contest, she made it to the Top 10, and is now fighting to make the Top 5!  As we enter the final hours of voting (it closes JULY 10), our Morgana is in 5th place and poised to make it, but she's only about 20 votes ahead of the 6th place contender; meaning  that she could still easily be upset from the Top 5 if we don't keep voting and maintain her lead (seriously, the sixth place person just jumped like 15 votes in the last hour!). 

Thus if you would like to support the badass and beautiful Morgana and haven't done so already, please vote at the link below!

MORGANA LE FAY is the Ultimate HBIC

Again, voting closes July 10! (Not sure in which time zone, so just try!)


sherrilina: (Morgana (Merlin))
So someone is running a competition for who is the ultimate HBIC (Head B*tch in Charge), and naturally I thought of my girl Morgana, one of the baddest BAMFesses that ever was, and nominated her! Show your support below if you'd like!


MORGANA LE FAY is the ultimate HBIC


 




Nominations end June 20!
