Wow, it's been sorta ages since I last posted. Time to change that.
#1 First of all, in RL related news I'd like to point out that it's AWESOME that we have the bestest of weather in late September. Perfect for spending an afternoon on horseback / in a plum tree (which I both did yesterday) or in my lovely little cabriolet. School has started a month ago and mostly I got great kids - finally having fun with my A-level class as well, which is about time since I'll be leaving for Prague with them on next Monday and I was kind of not looking forward to that before. Six weeks of summer hols do wonders for the 17 year old mind :).
#2 Now that this is out of the way: On to the really important stuff aka the telly.
I recently watched the second season of Sons of Anarchy (finally) and I am still so blown away by the intensity of the acting. Even if I sometimes ask myself if in midst all the glorification the questionable side of the Sons and everyone's intense belief shouldn't get a bit more screen time, I've hardly watched another show with characters as compelling and complex as these. Well, except for The Wire but hey, that's a given, right?
Speaking of compelling characters (and by that I mostly mean Bradley James's naked chest): Merlin has started again! Oh you lovely silly little show, how much have I missed you! And we get even more half!naked Bradley and intense!Colin, more MORGANA (who totally needs to be written in caps and caps only) and adorable Gwen/Arthur on top. And Tony, one must not forget Tony. If only I didn't have to wait till Christmas for Doctor Who to start up again - I'd kill for twice the adorable silliness that moves my heart :). Finally got to watch the DW prom as well and MY GOD how much do I love this show? The answer is A LOT.
Also: GLEE is on again! FINALLY! Marry me, Sue!!
And any new stuff on this year that is worth watching? Any recs from you guys?
#3 And how is it that every time I find myself asking myself why I still seem to be stuck in LotR fandom when practically nothing is being posted (which is sort of like a deep religious crisis of faith for me, except with more naked men involved), someone posts fic that is so awesome that I feel kind of ashamed for ever questioning the one-true-home that is this fandom? The fic I'm speaking of of course is giselleslash
's latest Orlibean, called "Who's going to drive you home"
, and is about the most perfect thing ever written - beautiful characterisation, wonderfully charming banter and fun, and all those little things that make my heart swell and nearly burst with sheer and utter LOVE. If you haven't already, I urge you to read it. Seriously.
#4 I'm currently not writing anything fandom related and the reason for that is my best mate's upcoming birthday and this mythology fanatism we share. As some of you might remember we started with this mythology casting years ago and since then gotten deeper and deeper into anything related to Greek mythology, and once again I'm working on this huge writing project as a result of that. So, if you're into Greek mythology and would like to discuss share the love please don't hesitate to squee at me / with me in the comments. Like who is awesomer than Herakles (the answer is: no one, no matter what you say, azewewish
)? Who could resist Paris's pout? Who on earth takes that nutter Ares seriously? Why is Clytemnestra the most awesome female character ever? And so on :).
