I am in week 2 of my drama slump, which is pretty unprecedented for me (I don't remember the last time I went two weeks without a drama). I do have Boku To Star No 99 Nichi first ep with subs - it's a jdrama with Kim Tae Hee as an actress and Nishijima Hidetoshi as her bodyguard. Maybe it will break the drought. I think The Princess' Man has ruined me for all other dramas for a while. I really need to post caps of the last two eps. Hmmm, maybe I really should give Tree with Deep Roots a chance and finally get to Man of Honor.

Meanwhile, I've been watching the second season of Boardwalk Empire with Mr. Mousie (I don't post about it much because I get all the discussion I want with him, but it's my favorite airing show) and checking out the pilot for Revenge - not bad, if possibly a bit too OC-with-vengeance so far to really make me rabid. Also has this:



Mmmm. Kyle, you've grown up nice.

But what I've mainly been doing, was rereading Paullina Simons' WW2 trilogy - The Bronze Horseman, Tatiana and Alexander and The Summer Garden. I think Tatiana and Alexander are my favorite literary OTP of all time, with the exception of Lymond and Philippa from Dunnett's Lymond Chronicles. Those books are so gorgeous and emotional, they make me want to both weep and roll around like a puppy in glee. I mean, see this:

Alexander moved her off him, laid her down, was over her, was pressed into her, crushing her. Anthony was right there, he didn't care, he was trying to inhale her, trying to absorb her into himself. "All this time you were stepping out in front of me, Tatiana," he said. "Now I finally understand. You hid me on Bethel Island for eight months. For two years you hid me and deceived me - to save me. I am such an idiot," he whispered. "Wretch or not, ravaged or not, in a carapace or not, there you still were, stepping out for me, showing the mute mangled stranger your brave and indifferent face."

Her eyes closed, her arms tightened around his neck. "That stranger is my life," she whispered. They crawled away from Anthony, from their only bed, onto a blanket on the floor, barricading themselves behind the table and chairs. "You left our boy to go find me, and this is what you found..." Alexander whispered, on top of her, pushing inside her, searching for peace.

Crying out underneath him, Tatiana clutched his shoulders.

"This is what you brought back from Sachsenhausen." his movement was tense, deep, needful.
Oh God. Now there was comfort. "You thought you were bringing back him, but Tania, you brought back me."

"Shura...you'll have to do..." Her fingers were clamped into his scars.

"In you," said Alexander, lowering his lips to her parted mouth and cleaving their flesh, "are the answers to all things."

All the rivers flowed into the sea and still the sea was not full.


Written for me. Just for me.

So yeah, dramas don't really satisfy after that.

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:

Because [livejournal.com profile] angelicus's post reminded me of it.

Can I recommend a show called Roswell to you all? If you have had me friended for a couple of years, you remember how nuts I went over it: marathonning, lengthy write-ups, even fanfic.



A show that ran on WB for 3 seasons, it hit every romantic kink I had: it was my kdrama before I even knew what a kdrama was.

The protagonist of the story was Liz Parker, a 'good girl' who lived in the town of Roswell. The story starts when she gets accidentally shot during a confrontation in the diner she works at. She would have die if she wasn't healed by one Max Evans, a quiet loner who goes to her high school. You see, Max (together with sibling Isabel and friend Michael) is actually an alien...Oh, and he's been in love with Liz since childhood (how Korean!). Will Liz figure out his secret and will she get involved in the dangerous game of protecting him and his friends from the government? And we are off to an angsty, star-crossed love story with plenty of h/c, shippiness and make-outs. Liz/Max are one of my all-time TV OTPs.

Here is a general MV:



Yeah, make-outs:



(If you want more info, just click on my Roswell tag: there are tons of posts)

I have also finally started True Blood and so far I like. The leads are quite photogenic. Mmmm, vampires who look like they hit puberty!

Well, the women are strong, and the men idealistic, and there is angst, but that is about all they have in common :P

Fair warning. If you don't like Roswell, you might want to skip my lj for a few days, because I am about to do a rewatch and so Roswell storm 2.0 is about to hit (when I discovered the show a year or so ago, my lj became a Roswell crazy zone).

Ahhh, angsty young love.

I found awesome Roswell vids on youtube:

Durka Returns is one of my favorite S1 eps.

And not just because of Chiana.

Ep meta. Very vague spoilers through S3 )

In non-Farscape news, I went looking for Roswell, Max/Liz vids on youtube (my new pasttime). I found a bunch of awesome ones (in order of preference) and they are behind the cut.

[livejournal.com profile] alexandral made the most beautiful batch of Notorious icons and posted it here. Notorious is one of my Top 10 movies (and my favorite Hitchcock movie) for its intricate angst, crazy chemistry, and incredible cinematography. In fact, I am probably rewatching it tonight.

Also, have been thinking about Veronica Mars. I am looking forward to the new season and everything, but a part of me isn't...so much. Let me explain. I am sure it will be fun and entertaining and a good show. But the thing is, what I really fell in love with is VM S1, which was a unitary, affecting storyline. It really wasn't a show as much as a complete story in and of itself, like a very long miniseries or an American version of one of those Asian doramas I watch. Complete, sufficient. I enjoyed large parts of S2 and it was a fun season overall, but it was nowhere near the level of S1. It has nothing to do with L/V or Duncan or whatever (S2 had a lot more L/V than did S1). Because the emotional impact, the tight story was gone and done. You could only do it once. And when I hear that the first ep of VM is almost like a pilot for new viewers etc, it just confirms what I think: S3 a fun show but a far cry from what I loved about S1. If you think about it, all of V's demons are gone. Lilly's murder is solved and the murderer is permanently underground. Ditto her rape. At least at the beginning of summer she has a nice, caring boyfriend. She is not the town pariah. Etc etc etc. Veronica Mars, teen sleuth is going to be a fun show. Just not VM S1 I adored.

In more cracktastic news, as I was walking this morning, I thought: Hannah got sent to Vermont boarding school, right? You know who else was sent there? Liz Parker, from Roswell. Did anyone write a cracktastic fic where they met by any chance? Or even cooler, what if Hannah used to watch Roswell? Did she think she was kinda Lizish? Of course, truth being that she is a secondary character in someone else's story but she doesn't know that. And of course she is primary in hers.

And I close with a picture I stole from [livejournal.com profile] crumpeteer's recent pic spam of Takizawa Hideaki. Because nothing brightens one's day like hot scantily clad boys.

A little eye candy )
