I was gonna include more in this entry but this actually kinda wore me out LOL

Day Ten: Favorite female character in a scifi/supernatural show

I said Cordelia last time, so, Olivia Dunham! I love her. I think the thing is with her is that  (like Tara, who I also love) she's a more quiet and subtle character, so a lot of people tend to think she's boring. But she's smart and fierce and loyal and loving. Awesome!

Day Eleven: Favorite female character in a children’s show

I don't watch many children's shows these days, but supposedly Merlin is one, so I'm gonna say Morgana again.

Day Twelve: Favorite female character in a movie

Mal Cobb! She was so hot and sexy and French and evil. Probably not my real answer but I don't watch many movies and she's the first that came to mind.

I'm so tempted to write Merlin season 3 fix it fic. SO TEMPTED! Like, I've had this idea for this Armor season 3 fic in my head ever since I saw Crystal Cave.

story idea that contains spoilers )

I just don't think I'd do the story justice since I'm not a very good author and dreadful and multi chapter stories, and it probably sounds horrible because I'm so romantic and sentimental and cheesy. But I just want this so bad.

Oh well. I'll just write it and post it and see what happens from there.

Day Seven: A female character that needs more screen time


Actually, I'm kind of torn about this. I mean, she's such an ignored character, but these days when they DO use her, her characterization is SO OFF, even if it's a joy to watch Katie be her. So, I guess what I really want is more screentime with old!Morgana.

Could you lovely people please tell me what's been happening on Merlin lately? (with an emphasis on Morgana and Arthur/Morgana please!)

I haven't watched since Crystal Cave, but I'm still curious.

Obviously there will be SPOILERS!

Day Two: Favorite supporting female character

 Morgana le Fay
I think it's safe to say that in the past year, I've become obsessed with this character. First, for the shallow reasons. Gorgeous hair, gorgeous eyes, gorgeous dresses, just gorgeous! Now that I've gotten THAT out of the way, on to my other reasons. I love her because she's always trying to help out the people she cares about, even when it puts her in danger. While I doubt that Uther would kill her (he loves her too much!) the truth is, she believes it. And yet she's still always trying to save Arthur and everyone. Sure she manipulates Arthur a lot, but she does it because she's trying to get him to be a good person who's doing the right thing. Yes, I am ignoring season 3 right now.

My poor girl. Not evil, just scared and confused and that made her easy to manipulate.

I posted 30 Merlin icons and 2 Legend of the Seeker headers here

I posted 7 Morgana headers here

I'm new to graphic making, so any comments would be much appreciated!

You know how sometimes when you write, the words just won't come out right?

That's what it's like for my Arthur/Morgana in the Inception universe story. I sat on it for about a week and a half, trying to play around with it, make it better and less random and have it make more sense.

I finally just posted it today. I figured I wasn't going to be able to do much else. Better luck next time, right? And hey, maybe I'm just being too hard on myself. That happens sometimes, when I write.

New header, layout, profile, and default pic! Very light and pink and Morgana centric! :)  What do you think?

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.

New layout!

I've been in a Morgana high lately, so the wonderful [ profile] amyxaphania  made me a header! *adores*

I suck at background stuff so I'm not sure if the background works, but I've been looking around for some backgrounds. Sometimes it takes a while to find a good one and I was impatient to have this up! :)

The place where I'm watching Merlin has Chinese subtitles and English subtitles below that, and oftentimes the subtitles aren't accurate.

While watching 1x09, apparently Arthur is the Crown Princess and Era Apparent of the throne.
ladysophiekitty: (Morgana hood)
I was watching Merlin, and this scene was kind of serious and intense when I realized there was some weird background music playing. Then cats started meowing! I was like, "wtf"? And then I realized that in another window, the cats singing Silent Night video was playing! It so ruined the mood, LOL.

And before that I accidentally clicked a link to watch 2x07 instead of 1x07. I was talking to [ profile] hmsharmony and she told me I was watching the wrong season and that I was going to be very confused. Apparently this episode likes to be difficult when it comes to me ;)
