Why didn't anyone inform me that Ringer co-starred Ioan Gruffudd as Buffy'sSarah Michelle Gellar's OTP?



This is full-blown 1990s heaven, you guys! I used to be so obsessed with Horatio Hornblower minis when I was in college - it was one of my earliest fandoms (ah, anyone remember the crumpeteers? Ahhh, Archie, my love! But I loved Horatio madly too, of course). I even wrote fic...

Between Buffy and HH, I am feeling a good 10+ yrs younger - I want to dig out my DVDs now...

Plus, the whole "she is impersonating her twin sister and is falling for her twin sister's husband, who is shocked to find his harpy of a wife be kind and cool and is falling for 'her' all over again" is so very kdrama.

Also, only thing is better than Buffy is two Buffies :)



Between this and Nick Weschler (Kyle on Roswell, my long-ago obsession show) being in Revenge, it's like nostalgia run!

Have a Bridget/Andrew MV:

And we get two lovely, light eps after the horrors of Surprise/Innocence. Yay.

Phases is an ep my Willow/Oz-shippy heart adores. So sweet and fun. And BBandB is very funny, even if it is Xander and Cordy-centric, and while I always found them funny, I was never emotionally invested in either of them.

Of course, dark does lurk around the edges, whether in Buffy's stoic repression (the girl is Queen Repress) or the glimpses of Angelus lurking around, planning how to do maximum emotional damage to her.

A few pics and thoughts )

Yes, I did do a whole writeup on finishing Acheron here, but I have a few more scattered thoughts:

* I wonder if all/any of the stuff she described in Part I (you know which) is based in reality and if so, how did she research it. That's got to be the creepiest Google search ever. Or did it all come out of her imagination? In which case, I'd be terrified to meet Kenyon in a dark alley.

* The more I think about it, the more I think the heroine is totally appropriate for Ash. She has this quality of being incredibly forward-thinking. By that I mean she does not dwell in the past at all, which is something he totally needs. He doesn't need somebody to be all 'poor thing, I am going to heal you' because that would remind him he is broken plus I think he'd pay a huge amount of money to not remember his past anyway. But Tory's attitude is basically perfect: she knows of his past but her thought process is not about that at all, except for thinking he is super-awesome for overcoming it and it's basically 'you had an awful past but it doesn't matter a bit and you are super-awesome now and I am all about the now.' Which is totally what he needs. He needs somebody to think he is awesome, even knowing stuff about him, not think he needs fixing. Actually I think Tory's forward-thinkiness is what enables her to cope so well with all the crazy situations: from almost dying to finding out how old Ash is. Her attitude is basically "OK, x happened already, nothing we can do about it, how do we proceed?"

* I think, other than Ash, Ryssa is my fave character. She was totally awesome. They should have run away from home when they were kids and got a hut in the woods together :) The book would be way shorter but give me less nightmares...

* I think Ash would be safe from me being grabby: he is too freaking tall! I love him as a character, but I wouldn't want to hook up with someone who is almost two feet taller than me any more than I'd want to make out with a 3' midget...

Not related to any of the above. I continued with Buffy rewatch and finished 'Phases' (SQUEE) and 'Bewitched Bothered and Bewildered' (Heeee). Pics and thoughts coming. But for now, I found this awesome Buffy/Angel MV:

Filmi Girl and I watched the "Surprise/Innocence" two-parter. I would say it's my favorite ep of Buffy S2, except that this is the season that has Becoming, my favorite Buffy episode ever. But this is definitely in Top 3 BtVS eps ever, for me.

S/I are so perfect. And no matter how many times I've seen it, I keep hoping for a different outcome and it tears my heart out...

Thoughts and caps )

Sorry this was the length of a novel...Also, this was very B/A-centric, but not only were these eps the same way, I confess that with the exception of Farscape no American (or British) show OTP ever hit my kinks the same way.

Still hideously Buffy-deprived (Filmi Girl and I are watching more tomorrow. If not, I give in and will watch by myself :P), I decided to check out a couple of eps of Bones I had on my hard-drive.

It's not really anything I'd watch devotedly as I am not big into procedurals, but as an occasional thing, it's not bad. More importantly, it's a pretty painless way to spend the evening: watching hot burly men and hot pretty women reenact fanfic scenarios in between boring procedural talk. I think some former fanfic writers write some of these scripts as the two eps I've watched had (a) the leading pair have to go undercover and dress-up as a couple for nebulous reasons. Heeee; and (b) heroine gets buried alive and hero has to find her and dig her out.

I approve.

Fanfic as show scenario Number 1: Dressing Up, Bare-Knuckle Boxing and Fake Coupling. Oh, make out already!

Fanfic scenario Number 2: Evil murderer-kidnapper takes Bones and Booth has 12 hours to rescue her while angsting photogenically. Yes please.

Conclusion: Procedural plots are totally silly and by the numbers but my brain is overruled by hotness and fanficness of it all. Ultimately, it's a big squee of approval from my id.

...because yes, I am a twelve-year-old inside.

Hint:



No, I haven't gotten to that point in my rewatch (I'd have to marathon all night!) but there is nothing wrong with a little cheating.

Caps of most fave scene ever )

Good Night everyone :)

I think I might be in the minority, but I really like S2's 'Bad Eggs.' The Redneck Vamp brothers amuse me to no end (and I am very very glad Lyle escapes, I can't help it). The egg thing is suitably creepy and fun, the zingers are great (especially Cordy and Xander back-and-forth in sex ed) and I love seeing Buffy and Angel so happy together and having a lot of fun making out like totally hormonally driven dorks instead of hunting. And it's one of my favorite shippy moments, when he tells her he can't have children (which would be part of her normal life of course) and she doesn't care and she tells him 'When I look into the future, all I see is you. All I want is you.' If only it were that simple. And the camera pans over, rather chillingly in retrospect, to the headstone with 'in loving memory of.'

I just love that sweetness especially since I know what happens next ep. I think the fact that Surprise is next is actually part of the reason I like BE so. It's the last breathing space before the rest of the season tears my heart out and dances a tap dance on the remains. I love the second half of S2 (IMO the best Buffy arc ever), but I am dreading it, too.
