I've been sick with a cold since Friday (and stayed home from school yesterday and today) so I've been watching a lot of TV.

+Dollhouse ASJFK. I was like :O the entire episode. BUT ECHO/PERRIN MAKES ME SO HAPPY BECAUSE IT'S LIKE WES/FAITH ALL OVER AGAIN. That scene where they were taking the GPS tag out of each other's neck? HOT. And Topher!Victor was fucking hilarious. I thought nothing could beat Kiki!Victor. Clearly I was wrong. And Topher is awesome, Adelle was kick ass, and there needs to be more Adelle/Topher. Though one thing that did ruin the whole Wes/Faith reunion thing was Eliza's acting. She was so good as Faith. It's a shame that she's not so great as Echo :( Anyway, looking forward to the next eps.

+Bones I saw bits and pieces of Tough Man on TV a while ago and that was enough for me, so I skipped that episode and watched the museum episode and then the ones after it. I know a lot of people on my f-list either adore this season or hate it. I know it's better than last season by loads and there are parts of it I really enjoy, but I'm definitely not as enamored by Bones as I used to be, and the drop in quality is still definitely there. It feels like I'm watching a completely different show. The Bones of before (1 and 2 and sort of 3) and the Bones of now.

I however noticed that Booth didn't deny being in love with Brennan when Wyatt (Stephen Fry FTW, btw) brought it up. I am, however, getting absolutely sick of everyone talking about how much Booth/Brennan are in love. Doesn't anyone have anything better to do with their time? I HATE it when people start banging me on the head with a hammer on "how perfect they are". But I gotta admit, the scene where Brennan adjusted his tie and Booth played with her hair was pretty cute.

I know given my current layout it must make me sound hypocritical. But it was Christmasy and I wanted something festive for my layout! :D

+Merlin [ profile] hmsharmony and I have a deal where she'll watch Angel if I watch Merlin. I started watching yesterday and I am about to start episode 6. It's pretty awesome so far! (Happy yet, Mel?) My thoughts: ARTHUR'S HOT. Morgana's pretty and I want her dresses. WTF LANCELOT SHUT UP YOU'RE ANNOYING AND I FEEL LIKE I SHOULD GET A VIOLIN OUT EVERY TIME YOU TALK. At this point I'm kind of shipping Arthur/Morgana and Gwen/Merlin with a side of Arthur/Merlin. The show can be pretty lulzy sometimes. I was cracking up at the first line of the first episode. It was so cheesy!

I need some Merlin icons. Damn it LJ, sell permanent accounts already!

LOL, watching TV is like, THE thing to do when you're sick.

We've already talked about all of this on AIM for, like, seven hundred hours, but OMG YES ARTHUR IS HOT. And Morgana is way too pretty. And I want her dresses too.

LANCELOT. HAHAHAHA. He can go die in a ditch somewhere clutching his violin for all I care. I mean...*cough*

At this point I'm kind of shipping Arthur/Morgana and Gwen/Merlin with a side of Arthur/Merlin.

THAT WAS SO ME AT THE BEGINNING. But, um, we've been over that about five thousand times. So I'll stop.


I promise to watch Angel as soon as I get off for break. :-)

YAY! *joins you in the happiness*

LOL you don't need to stop! It's been so much fun talking to you and I'm going to probably be the exact same way when you watch Angel. *SQUEEE CAN'T WAIT*

Also, since I've been given permission, BB! ;)

Now go study!

BTW, IM me as soon as you start episode ten. If I'm not on, TEXT ME. Please? Hee.

I will!

If you are gone and I have to text you, do you want me to wait until you're on to watch the episode?

But it isn't necessary. The only episode that I DEMAND I'm there for is 1x13. Because it's epic in so many ways.

edit: and by only episode I mean for series one. Once we get to series two...well, things are going to get complicated, bb (HAHA. I USED IT TOO!)

The show is amazing lol, and the amount of talent in the fandom is shocking and beautiful, lets just say this is one fandom definitely not lacking in epic length stories.

You guys must love the slash dragon, then. :D

THE SLASH DRAGON RULES ALL (even if I don't seriously ship M/A. I still love that mystical creature of hilariousness/epicness).

Slash Dragon is FUN! (Though annoying at times....but mostly fun *grins* ;D) Seriously though, could he say anything more epically gay on a regular basis? ;D

I think EVERYTHING the slash dragons says MUST involve some not at all subtle subtext about Arthur and Merlin getting it on. I think the writers will reveal at the end of the series that the slash dragon really had no freaking clue what he was talking about in terms of the future of Camelot - he was just pulling it out of his ass so he could get his ship started XD.

That's really great to hear. What my friend has told me of the fandom, it sounds pretty cool. Sometimes it can be scary getting into a fandom because of batshit crazy fans and it's always nice to hear when fandom has its nice corners and its talented corners.

(Happy yet, Mel?)

YES! Yes I am *beams* :D


But OMG I love Lancelot, actually. I just like having all that sexy at once, hee! ;) The first season is full of epic awesome!! The second season is a little more hit and miss, but I still have faith in them.

YAY!! YOU ARE WATCHING MERLIN! *does happy dance* :D

*chooses carefully spoiler-free Merlin icon to use* ;)

I had a feeling this post would make you happy. I mean, you've been wanting me to watch for a while :)

Lance is pretty, but Arthur's hotter. It took a while for me to appreciat Arthur's beauty, though. Like first it was like, "meh" and then a few episodes later it was like OMG HE'S HOT.

Just curious, what are your other Merlin ships besides Arthur/Merlin?

It took me a little while to warm up to Bradley James, but I actually love him SO SO MUCH that I want to have his babies. Like, NOW! ;D Arthur's a great character. He goes through a lot of great growth and development this season. I'm excited for you to watch :D

As to what my main ships are, they are as follows:

1. Merlin/Arthur (duh! ;))
2. Merlin/Morgana
3. Uther/Morgana (SO MY GUILTY PLEASURE!!!)
4. Leon/Morgana (who you don't know yet...and it's a pretty silly ship since they never even talk, but I still enjoy the idea of it anyway, LOL!)
5. Gwen/Lancelot

I'm also cool with: Merlin/Gwen, Arthur/Morgana, and Gwen/Morgana.

There is only one ship I despise beyond belief, but I won't share it with you so as not to bias you (hehe!). Just, uh, don't go reading any of my journal entries about Merlin for this current season, LMAO ;)

The really fun thing about this show is that it's such a great multi-ship show! Most people ship many pairings. (Most also predominantly ship M/A, but everyone is incredibly nice and friendly and it's mostly a very happy, peaceful fandom without much wank!) :D

I didn't like him so much the first episode, but starting episode two it was "hey, he's not so bad" and then "OMG YOU'RE HOT AND AWESOME AND CAN I MARRY YOU? PLEASE?"

Yes! Most people I've talked to either ship multiple ships or have shipped multiple ships. What I've seen so far it seems nice. I can't wait until I'm all caught up and can fully participate in the fandom!

Yes, I'm stalking you now...because I realized I was also curious your thoughts on Bones...;)

But I gotta admit, the scene where Brennan adjusted his tie and Booth played with her hair was pretty cute.

Dude. Can I show you the cutest little gif ever? It's from a later season 2 episode of's not spoilery at all. But it totally reminds me of what you're talking about. (And may also convert you to my completely not obvious at allOTP ;D.)

What you say about Bones is totally true though. I hate, hate, HATE it when "romances" are shoved down our throats. When you have to announce it to the world EVERY. SINGLE. EPISODE, that probably means that it can't stand on its own and therefore probably isn't all that great/solid to begin with. Bah!

I don't miss watching this show one bit though. But I am glad to hear that it's at least partially better than last year.

(Look at that! I still have one B/B icon....why I haven't deleted it yet, I'll never know. Well, probably because I really liked them in this episode and it was one of my favourite B/B moments ever... All the rest can GTFO though ;))

And what OTP would that be? *blinks innocently*

I like that BB moment. Gotta love Jasper <3

OTP = One True Pairing :D --> CLEARLY I do not know how to read! LOL! Oops....ignore me.....I kind of thought you knew what that meant! *blushes* ;)

I know....I'm pretty damn un-subtle about it. Even people who have never watched an episode of Merlin in their lives probably knows my main ship, LOL! ;)

And here is the gif of cuteness that resembles what you were talking about with B/B:


*is happy and pathetic, rolled into one* ;)

Jasper is great. It was such a wonderful moment between them. I miss the old Booth and Brennan. I liked them a lot more than the pod people they've become.

See? THEY ARE THE SAME! LMAO! Actually, I don't really want Merlin/Arthur to be compared to B/B...but I will admit that the B/B scene is quite cute :). And almost completely the same as the M/A one, minus the fact that that M/A one isn't technically supposed to be romantic...but it's still domestic and adorable and was completely unnecessary on Merlin's part, so it makes me happy and full of squee! :D

I started watching it because my daughter wanted to - it's brill! You might find you ship different people by season two *g*

I am one of those people loving Bones this year, so I'll not go on about that ;)

It's no fair that you're British. Makes it much easier for you to watch! LOL, I had to use my handy pirating skills....ARRRR. People have told me the same thing about shipping. I take it from your icon you're Arthur/Gwen?

Hey hey new friend :) *waves*

Bones. Haha I'm loving this season. Though to be honest I didn't hate season 4, and in particular I though that towards the end of the season the episodes really picked up, for example, The Salt in the Wounds really struck me as an episode reminiscent of older Bones while not meaning that the characters/storylines had relapsed or anything.

I think I'm just all for a change. We've had those old eps and now I'm happy going on the shippy ride because really I'm just a hopeless romantic like that haha.

Your Bones comments = exactly my thoughts. I HATED Tough Man with a passion. I've never hated a Bones ep that much before. And I hate how all the characters are so obsessed with how BB are "so in love" all of a sudden.

Hope you feel better soon *hugs*

Hmm, you are going to have a hard time reading my Bones-posts then! Haha. They are full of shippery flail usually.

But I will say that although I think season 5 has seen a vast improvement over season 4, I agree with you that it's still a different show than the Bones of seasons 1 and 2. I've just decided to roll with it is all, and take it for what it is, rather than compare it every week. Anytime I see a throwback to the old Bones though, it makes me really happy.

Also, I'm so with you on your Dollhouse comments! Topher!Victor and Kiki!Victor were like the best things ever, and the world can never have enough Topher/Adelle scenes. They are win.

Oh, I don't mind it when fans do it (I do it with my ships, too). It's just annoying when it's constantly happening in the show. It's sort of like how even though Angel/Cordelia is my favorite ship, I found it annoying when they were constantly talking about kyerumption and moira and destiny and stuff in the show. Now, if someone made an entry talking about how perfect Angel/Cordy are, then I'd get into it and probably join in the conversation.

Victor is awesome, and Topher/Adelle is too. I love Topher a lot, too, because the guy who plays him, Fran Kranz, is awesome! He sent me a personalized autograph and now I totally fangirl him. He talks to another friend of mine on facebook more, too, and every time I hear about something he's said or done, he just becomes more awesome.

Oh, I get it now! I totally know what you mean in that case.

And aww, Fran Kranz! How sweet. That's kind of like how I still love the actor who played Langly on the X-Files to this day, because I emailed him once in like '97 or something, and he totally wrote back and took the time to answer my dumb questions. I still think that's awesome and not something many actors these days would do.
