ladysophiekitty: (Hodgins Bug Man)
You know the thing I miss the most about Bones?

The Zack/Hodgins friendship. IT WAS AMAZING AND EPIC AND AWESOME! This BB fic I started ages ago and never finished, has an entire (unposted) chapter dedicated to them. I recently refound it and :( :(

I think that was the thing that got me the most down about the season 3 finale. No more king of the lab, little competitions, CRAZY EXPERIMENTS, etc.
ladysophiekitty: (Beckett/Castle reading)

This one's been a long time coming.

I got this question once. "Sophie, why do you like Castle when you can't stand Bones these days? I mean, they're a lot alike now."

Here's the thing. Bones started out as a show that was about ALL the characters, meaning that though Booth and Brennan were the main characters, you still got a lot of screen time and development and all that yummy stuff involved. The cases often reflected character development going on. In Boy in the Bush, you learn about Brennan being in the foster care system because it pertains to the case. She has this amazing scene where she, this woman who has a hard time connecting to people, gets this boy, and this boy gets her. You learn about Angela having a hard time staying in one place, and how much the body of this little kid bothers her, and how she feels like she's drawing death masks for people because of her job. There was some light hearted humor, but that wasn't the point of the show, nor was Booth/Brennan's relationship. 

Castle, on the other hand, started out as quite a different show. It's a comedy featuring the two main characters in the cast. Sure, Ryan and Esposito and Castle's family play a part in the show, but in the end it's mostly about Castle and Beckett. The cases are portrayed as light hearted, and while they do work on solving the cases, it's not a major point of the show. Still, Castle does show moments of seriousness. In one of the episodes, a pregnant woman is suicidal and cutting herself with a knife. Instead of having Castle go in there (even though that's not the kind of thing he'd be suited for) or they could have portrayed it as this funny thing, Castle stands back and let the person who CAN deal with that do it.Beckett goes in there and acts like a professional and talks to the woman, eventually getting her to stop harming herself.

The fact is that Bones changed. Suddenly, in a big way. Booth and Brennan, and their romance, was the big focus of the show with not much time spent on individual characters. The cases all of the sudden became about the humor, the show became about the humor, and instead of having the cases having to do anything with what's actually happening in their lives, it became completely separate. The mood felt completely different. Maybe I could have enjoyed this show, it's possible (though doubtful). But really, I was focusing on thinking, "Wait, where did all of this come from? What happened? Is this a different show? Are these even the same characters?"

THAT'S where I start getting bothered. No explanation for it, nothing.

You can't do that in a show. You can't just say, "hey! I'm getting bored of this. Let's start all over again" and still have it count as the same show. This bothered me in Merlin, too, where they pretend that the first few episodes of season 1 (or hey, even ANY of season 1) happened and that season 2 was just a replay button. The fact is that it did happen.You want to hit the replay button? Here's a scenario that didn't bother me. Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Joss Whedon made the movie and then decided he didn't like the way he did it. He didn't create "Buffy the Movie  2 Sequel to Movie 1 but completely different". No, he made a TV show that he set up as completely different. That's why I can watch the movie and then watch the show without saying, "What happened?" because he portrayed them as separate, so that's how I view them.

Right now, I have just completed my Bones ficlet table written for [ profile] drabble123  It's been a 2 year project, and it's so weird to have it done!

I did write the last two, however, with a bad cold so I'm not sure how good they are. But OMG I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M DONE! I'm so happy. I haven't finished a multi-part story in years!


You can find it, of course, at [ profile] athenas_garden my fic and fanmix community :)

I've been thinking about the whole gotcha thing today. Gotcha, like when a movie or a show or a book does something that you weren't expecting at all, or maybe that you'd been suspecting.

Sometimes, a gotcha can be really great. But sometimes it just makes me feel angry and cheated. Gotcha, Zack is Gormagon's apprentice. Gotcha, Cordelia got possessed by an evil demon and is now in a coma. Spoiler for two most recent Dollhouse eps ) Gotcha, characters you like are written off the show.

But Adelle is a HBIC and I fucking love her. *needs an Adelle and a Topher icon*

2009 was actually a pretty productive year for me, more productive than some previous years. End of the year round up )12

 Would someone mind being a beta for my new Bones fic? I'm planning for it to be around seven chapters long, and I'm entering it for this month's [profile] ficfinishing  so hopefully I'll have new chapters out pretty fast.

I'm looking for someone who has the time to read faster updates, who doesn't mind Booth and Brennan having a kid (I'm not usually the biggest fan myself, hahaha), and who doesn't mind occasionally giving me ideas. 

Any takers? 

Never mind! Found one. 
ladysophiekitty: (Booth WTF?)
So I was watching Bones season 1 this morning which had me craving for some good BB fics. Usually I stalk the favorites page of authors I like but this time I was insane and decided to search through The Pit. Cramps are making me bitchy so yay mockage post.

I was bored tonight, but I don't have PS on this computer, so I fooled around on photobucket instead. Mostly fooling around with the same images. I'll probably make another post later.

Even though I wasn't going to until next month, once the post was staring at me, I couldn't help but join! So I'm participating in [ profile] ficfinishing 's October round. Yay! Unfortunately they don't have Harry Potter yet (*cough anyone who requests it in the fandom requesting post will be much loved cough*) so I joined for Bones. I have been writing for that fandom a bit more lately, and it would be nice to FINALLY finish A Phone Call Away/A Day with the Squints/In the Dark drabble table. I signed up for ADwtS though, and will do the rest next time. Unless Harry Potter gets approved, that is.

Maybe next time I'll try to write some Angel. Still a bit hesitant about writing for that fandom, though.

Just out of curiosity, anyone else on my F-list joining in for [ profile] ficfinishing  or Nanowrimo this year?
