I had an odd drem that I and Mr. Mousie were Mrs and Mr British officer at some point in 19th century so I woke up with a craving for a book set in Victorian times, preferably involving some officers but also woman-centric.

KINDLE GAVE ME NADA!

By that I don't mean I demand it psychically guess what I want. I know what I want - I put in Emma Drmmond/Elizabeth Darrell - nothing on kindle. I used a pretty awesome list compiled by an amazonian - nada on kindle. Freaking Far Pavillions are not on Kindle! At that point I gave up because if FP wasn't going to be on kindle, nothing was. Sriously, ow can it not be on kindle, being still in print, a hue bestseller (with a bad tv mini made out of it :P) etc.

I own a paper copy somewhere but our house is drowning in books so I can't find it (At least I found Shadows on the Moon, another MM Kaye book). That thing is such a doorstopper, it should stick out - I remember reading it when I had an internship which had an hour commute each way and it still took me a while to finish it. Bah! I want my Ash/Anjali fix. It would make a cool movie with Bolly actors, btw...*sigh*

I woke up with interest in dramas pretty much gone. It may come back or not - I am prone to sudden ends of obsessions.



So, this evening, I felt like watching some of my favorite show of all time, the scifi classic, Farscape. I rewatched "Promises," the ep in the first half of S4 where Aeryn comes back on Moya, accompanied by Scorpius, dying of heat delirium, steal hoarding her secrets. And the episode in which we first see Crichton's ability to cope and trust and just hope for them, begins to crack.

If you have no idea what Farscape is, you can always click on my 'farscape meta' tag, but the short version is that Farscape follows the adventures of John Crichton, an astronaut who ends up shot through a wormhole into a different galaxy, and the ship of escape prisoners on which he crashes. Farscape is a dark, fiercely smart, often uncompromisingly odd show that, at its core, is a love story.

And what a love story it is between Crichton and Aeryn Sun, a soldier in a totalitarian society called 'peacekeepers,' who is considered contaminated by her accidental contact with Crichton and thus has to join the fugitives on the run. It is, by far, my favorite OTP in any media - they are both smart, strong, ruthless, incredibly damaged individuals, who buck gender stereotypes (she's physically stronger and he's more interested in emotions and relationships than she is). Crichton wins the damage award in pretty much any fiction ever, by the end, and it is perhaps because of that damage that his love for Aeryn becomes pretty much his reason for functioning - I've never seen a TV character love his OTP this much and need her this much. (It's always a wonder to me he's not rocking in the corner screaming, but then that's pretty much what he does when she's taken near the end of S4). Their relationship is intense yet tender and occasionally combative (both are very strong-willed), it's dysfunctional, it's beyond angsty, and it's perfect perfect perfect.

I don't mean to neglect the other characters, I love them all, especially the terrifying antagonist Scorpius, after Crichton for what is in his mind.

Anyway, it's four seasons and a miniseries, if you haven't watched it yet, do so!

Or is anyone interested in a group watch? It's on netflix streaming, I believe.

Meanwhile, have this shippy MV.
