Dropping by to rec a fic which [livejournal.com profile] sailtonorway recommended, too -

Inception - i am the hero of this story (don't need to be saved)
She is thirty-two years old. Her husband is in a hospital bed, dreaming. They call him comatose and stumble around you can kill him if you like.

Mal fic. You GUYS. MAL FIC!

There are things about Inception that I've never said, because that post about Inception is still lying half-written in my Google Docs and I'm not particularly interested in going back to it, but here's something: as much I love Arthur and Eames (and the actors who play them) and love the things that they do, are, say, etc., my favourite character, the one I'm most interested in, has to be Mal, because I think she's the perfect character. )

Oh plus it's gorgeously-written, so. Basically: read it, please.

Short replies, because I'm exhausted, and I blabber about everything else on this meme anyway, so I'll just cross these off quickly -

Day 04 - Your favorite show ever

The Office )

Runners-up - Firefly (actually if I didn't call comedies my favourite genre of television, this may have won) and Parks and Recreation (OUT OF NOWHERE; I'm honestly having massive amounts of crazy!love for it right now; we can talk about it later in the meme).

Day 05 - A show you hate

Two and a Half Men )


I am really so tired - all we do these days are essays, essays, essays; I have papers for both history and Knowledge & Inquiry (on historical epistemology), so doing all these history-based things is almost getting on my last nerve, except not really because I kind of love it? But still.

I was going to go to bed, by the way, but [livejournal.com profile] cereal just posted Leslie/Ben fic, and a) Parks fic!!!1! and b) it's [livejournal.com profile] cereal!!!1! What am I supposed to do? (I'm going to read it, and then I'll hate myself tomorrow, until I remember I can nap during one of the stupider lectures.)

I got back an answer I wrote evaluating a passage, and at the end my smart-ass teacher had written schizophrenic, which is kind of what I feel like a lot these days, so maybe that's not too bad. This entry is a mess. I should probably go sleep.

30 day meme - full list )
falulatonks: ([toy] agh!)
  1. Uhm, I only just found this: Settlingly Ever After, a Liz/Wesley fic. From 30 Rock! (Wesley was maybe my favourite thing about a season I'm not particularly impressed with.) And it is excellent, but that's probably just because it's [livejournal.com profile] dollsome.

  2. I also just found Tiger Beatdown, a blog with the very appropriate tagline "lady business" (women! feminism! etc.). I came across it because I was reading about women on television (yes, this is what I do with my free time! WHAT AM I.), and the main writer Sady Doyle had some really fascinating stuff to say about Liz Lemon - I don't agree with all of it, but it's interesting, makes you think about things a little, and it's definitely well-written.

    I wanted to know what she'd think of Leslie Knope from Parks and Recreation, and I poked around and found this. women in 'parks', and women on tv )

    God that got rambley. I'm sorry, this kind of thing is interesting to me. Also, it will help me for when I write a show or movie or book in the future with THE BEST WOMEN EVER. (/dreams)

  3. Simon Pegg, his sister, and Nick Frost used Twitter to do the best thing ever, and I love them so much for it. GENIUS. Why I love it as much as I do has to do with the fact that basically, there's no point. They're doing it for fun! One of them thought, "Hey, this would be fun", got the others, discussed some basic plan of execution, and did it. I LOVE IT.
This would've been a little longer, but that ramble got crazy-lengthy. And I want to go to bed.

Bad Reputation was over-the-top and crazy and ridiculous and a total mess, but I liked it way more than last week. I may even love it, I don't know. Maybe because of the music? (Probably because I forwarded all the scenes that looked like they would annoy me.) weekly waste of time list )

I suck.

P.S.: I think it's important to tell you all that I've found a replacement noun for Like a Virgin - "like a bird, yeah" doesn't make any sense, but "Like a Persian"? Now that's ridiculous, but it still makes sense! :P I've been singing it to no consequence. This excites me.

P.P.S.: If you guys want good Rachel/Jesse fic, this one by [livejournal.com profile] summerstorm both makes the situation hilarious and evolves their relationship believably. Also, the Jesse voice is perfect. He acknowledges that Rachel Berry is really hard to like and finds himself liking her anyway, and I love it.

Five Characters That Were Never the Slayer
