More Veronica Mars today. Yay. After last week's episode, Husband and I came up with the theory for the bus crash etc. Since this is completely unspoiled, I am not putting it behind a cut.

I think Mayor Woody Goodman is responsible. I think he is involved with the Fitzpatricks' drug ring. The bus crash was to get rid of Cervando, who either knew of this or was just a general thorn in Fitzparticks' side. The Woody-Fitzpatrick connection is also involved in the whole incorporation scheme, which Woody seems really anxious about. If all the good parts get incorporated, with very precisely drawn borders, the Fitzpatrick areas etc will be outside the new jurisdiction and the police force left there will be all divided and underfunded and the Fitzpatricks could function a lot easier.

I also realized I am not a shipper for VM at all, any more. I used to be a L/V shipper, but I lost interest in them this season. Neither of the two seems to be stuck on each other, so why should I be? They moved on, and so have I. I guess if they had a soul-changing love affair before, I would have held on for longer, but as it is, even though they had passionate fun, it didn't get to R&J proportions before it all fell apart so...

I lose interest if the parties do. Why should I be more invested than the fictional characters? I am almost off Kara/Lee boat as well. The only reason I am pausing on the gangway is Lee's face as he sees Kara and Anders make out and Kara's hesitation in calling Lee at the end.

Oh, and I want to watch Dr. Who scifi is showing. I taped the two eps from last week but have yet to get to them because Husband wants to watch them too. Can't wait.

I am continuing in my read of The Book and the Sword. It's crack. Bad crack. I present you with an example why.

Nothing says love like this:

She...suddenly remembered the time she and Wen had recieved an order from Old Helmsman Yu soon after their marriage to go to the town of Jiaxing, to the aid of a widow who was being persecuted by a local ruffian. When they had completed the assignment, they spent the evening at Misty Rain Tavern on the South Lake, drinking wine and enjoying the rain. Wen had held his new wife's hand and sung songs at the top of his voice as he tapped out the rhythm with his sword on the severed head of the ruffian.

Aaaaaaah, love. All you need for a fully romantic evening is decapitation, it seems.

Also, I've finished Battle Royale last week. Less than 24-hours which means I really fell madly for it (usually, unless on a train or similar, I read books in more measured dozes).

Thoughts on it )

1. I won't be able to see BSG 2.10 until Sunday evening. Grrrrr... OTOH, I won't have net access either, so I won't get hideously spoiled either. I am truly looking forward to the Helo/Boomer stuff (what else is new?)

2. I haven't seen VM yet (but it's being shipped to me as we errr... type), but I have gotten addicted to VM fanfic courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] sexycereal. I don't know who half the people are, but boy she makes them fascinating. And she wrote a LOT of stuff and I am having fun working through it. Sometimes being a spoiler nut really has its benefits.

3. Pet Peeve of the day: Why do people need to come up with cutesy names for ships? Why not do the vanilla way of initials with a slash between them? Buffy ships sound like comic book noises: Bangel! Spander! Spuffy! I keep expecting a Supervillain to pop up at any moment. Veronica Mars' Number 1 ship is called LoVe which is a bit creative, but I guess it's lucky the characters' names weren't Lucas and Stephanie, because LuSt doesn't sound nearly as good. And there are fandoms where ship names are completely random and if you are new you are lost. Take Roswell, where Max/Liz ship is "Dreamers" and Michael/Maria are "Candy." Nothing beats the crazy Harry Potter fandom though. I am sorry, but the tag of Wotcher-Wolvie (Remus-Tonks) gives me active indigestion. Pumpkin Pie (Harry/Hermione) and Orange Crush (Harry/Ginny) are not much better. Really.

4. While walking today, I saw posters for Serenity and Green Street Hooligans which has Elijah Wood and Charlie "yum" Hunnam as football hooligans. Can't wait!

5. Everyone should go and read every last bit of Helo/Boomer fic [livejournal.com profile] repr0b8 has ever written. Right now.

6. Ditto for [livejournal.com profile] poisontaster's Firefly fic.

ETA: 7. Bollynuts, go and read [livejournal.com profile] missusk's account of meeting Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar and Preity Zinta on their film shoot in NYC.

Well, you know how everyone seems to be on a Veronica/Logan bandwagon? All well and good, but I just realized that in Buffy parallels, Duncan=Angel and Logan=Spike. And I was such a hardcore B/A shipper. Oh no....Now I have a hideous image of myself being one of (it seems like) 10 people who ship V/D (OK, bad initials, make me think of "venerial desease" :P) and everyone else being all uncomprehending and going "whaaaaa?"

Or not. Maybe I'll be all over V/L because it will have the bestest angst or something. But then...being a B/A and S/B shipper at the same time (or sort of) ought to make one's head explode...

Plus, I don't think we get episodes and episodes of V/D exclusivity hearts'n'flowers which would make it OK.

Well, I'll stick to being a canon nazi, and that way I'll just ship whichever way the show goes.

I need sleep. But this musing over a show I've not yet seen is distracting me from seeking Serenity spoilers, so all well and good.
