In the latest Veronica Mars
fic round-up, I have three fics to recommend: Shuffle (Greatest Hits of 1966)
, an excellent and unusual post 2.22 story (if you are interested in ships, it's L/V), and The thing about Logan
, a wondeful L/V fic that makes me so happy. There is also Bad Boys Break Fast
, which is a delightful take on Logan cooking breakfast in 2.22.
Oh, and this morning? Chosen short shot of angst to get me going for the day? An ep from Season 1 of One Tree Hill
, the horrid cheesefest that I can't help but be addicted to. CMM annoys the heck out of me, and I think Peyton and Brooke should be tied together and thrown off a boat, but I love me some Nathan/Haley (see Previous picspam and post on them
). The show itself might be an evening version of daytime soap (OTH does not even try to transcend the teen genre or stand out the way Buffy or VM or Roswell), but the Nathan/Haley thing is what keeps me watching: they do have genuine chemistry and are awfully sweet together (I haven't seen most of S2, apparently the ship gets really messed with. Netflix is to the rescue, so we shall see). It starts out as a general cliche of a jerky rich jock and a grounded Miss Study but becomes a lot more fun (though no less cliche) as Nathan recieves enough angst for a small elephant and the whole thing is adorable. So I watched the bit where he comes into her roof after almost keeling over and tells her how much she means to him blah blah. Cheese, I love you.
I am reading Tanith Lee's The Gods are Thirsty
, a novel about Camille Desmoulins and it's excellent. It has this unique, poetic writing style I love. She switches narrative persons with each chapter yet somehow it works. This has nothing in common with The Silver Metal Lover
, the other book of hers I read except for the style. I think I am going to read much much more of her, now. aliterati
, not much on Robespierre so far (Camille does mention something about following him to Hell. I think he means moral Hell as otherwise his chornology doesn't work), but you'd love the bit where he mentioned that Robespierre loved roses, and so Saint-Just used to bring them to him by the armful, "like a young bride."
Because it should be recced, mimesh
, did a humongous Hayden Christensen
picspam. Go here
And I've finished Creezy
. It's not bad but it's flawed. ( Creezy thoughts )
Next movie on the list to watch is Musa: The Warrior
, a Korean period action film. I am not sure what it's about but it looks beautiful and stars Zhang Ziyi.( A multitude of Musa pics )
And more Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna
stills came out ( KANK goodness behind cut )
ETA: More KANK pics ( KANK yourself out )
