Nanowrimo, Day 9: \o/ Finally got to introduce Crowley. Saving most of the snark for tomorrow (broken up with a scene of Kezef), but I think I'm going to enjoy this next bit. There's a lot going on and Crowley's going to be exposition man. Or, more realistically, "Oops, you didn't want them to know that, did you? Oh dear, angel, whatever are you going to do."

Just barely over today's word count. I need to get a good head start this weekend. Why does Novemeber have to end on a week-day?

I had every intention of making a post today - well, a proper one, this one doesn't count - but since today's been crap, that plan's been scrapped. Besides, I haven't done much today: went to work, was cold, put subtitles on a documentary all day, Tumblred, was bored, was even more cold, had lunch with people (even through I was a social-anxiety-cat all the way and besides, no one talked to me, not really), was attacked by dodos (i.e. massive wibbles for no reason), was cold, went home, went to the park to knit (for some strange reason), went home again, was even more cold, obsessively organized my hundreds of GIFs into fandom folders (because' I'm that kind of crazy), wrote this crap.

And now, The Walking Dead! And hopefully my fingers and toes will stop aching in my barely-nineteen-degrees room with a goddamn breeze. I am so cold.

Quote of the Day: Wikipedia, "Loneliness", here
A person who feels lonely regardless of if she is at a family gathering, with friends, or alone is experiencing chronic loneliness. It does not matter what goes on in the surrounding environment, the experience of loneliness is always there.

* Agnes Nutter, Good Omens by TPratchett and NGaiman
bending_sickle: (Mark is made of awesome)
I'm still in my "watch all the Mark Sheppard things!" mode. I've followed Mark into some amazing new shows - Leverage and White Collar and Battlestar Galactica - and into some watchable ones - Warehouse 13 and Chuck, for example. Then there's Bionic Woman and Middle Man, which I plowed through out of sheer devotion to Mark's minor character. Oh, Mark...



Right now, I'm watching 24 and I almost wish I were watching Middle Man. At least that one was amusing. For one, it doesn't help that this is totally not my style of show. There's no fantasy and no science, so that's me clutching at staws to find something I can invest in. I'm shit out of luck doing that with Mark's character because the first episode he's in, he's hunkered down in a crowd, head in his hands. The second one, he's got tiny scenes of sitting in a car. (Sitting well and lovely, but still.) Right now I'm hanging onto Grey's Anatomy's Teddy and The Lord of the Rings Sam to get me through. That and the awesome character Chloe O'Brian.

But I can handle that, no problem. What I cannot handle is how the male characters are responding to and treating two female characters. Read more... )

In other news, I've watched all of the guest-starring-Mark-Sheppard episodes of BSG and am still a bit on the fence over whether I like the show or not. I can see that it's good, but it hasn't quite gripped me. Still, I've been reading Television Without Pity's recaps of the episodes I watched, and apart from being astonishingly well-written in the analytical and poetic sense of it all, they make me want to watch the show in full, if only to get a sense of these vast sweeping themes. So BSG is still on the List of TV Shows to Watch.

However, that's not what I want to share today. What I want to share is reason 2349 why Romo Lampkin is awesome.


He's handcuffed and has a big bad soldier with an even bigger, badder gun aimed at his *squints eyes* well, ass, really. And you know what? He kills that solder dead. With a pen. A stolen pen.

Did I mention he's a lawyer?

Sickle's Random Tid-Bits:
  • I finally watched an episode of Battlestar Galactica, which I've been meaning to watch in full for ages. Obviously it was a Mark Sheppard episode - 3x18, "The Son Also Rises" - and he was basically the reason I watched it. And, it turns out, the only reason I liked it.

    Sure, I was jumping smack in the middle of the third season with only a basic knowledge of the whole series' storyline, but I didn't enjoy it because I got lost. And it wasn't because I didn't feel for the characters, because I did, for some, even without knowing their life history. I don't know, I think it was just all the politics and intrigue and all that type of happenings that made me not like it, because I've figured out that that is just not my genre. Thrillers and spies and politics - even if they are in space! - just isn't my thing.

    But that said, it really is a good show. Good pacing, good look, excellent writing. And by that I mean I absolutely adored all of Romo Lampkin [Mark Sheppard]'s speeches. His character had a slight Irish lilt to it, which was charming once I actually figured out what accent it was I was hearing - because previous to that I was just all ears going, "What? What accent is that? Where is that from? Is that, what?"

    I actually had to extract some of his speeches and made them into MP3s (wanna listen?) because I just loved them so much. Mark, damnit, do audiobooks.

    So in sum, I'll be watching more BSG, but only the kind with Mark Sheppard in it, until and if I get hooked on it and want to watch the whole thing.

    Oh, and on a completely different not, the president? Couldn't keep her apart from Doctor Who's Sarah Jane Smith in my head. I'm okay with that.

  • The newspaper did an article on prostitution zones in Rome, and so I learned that there are two zones in my neighbourhood. There's seven women right around our place - which doesn't surprise me, as I knew of five and actually walk by their hang-out place which is a little park every day to and from work - and some twenty-one a bit farther away - coincidently, where one night my mother and I were walking and were called at from a car and we knew they'd mistaken us for prostitutes. So that makes almost thirty prostitutes right in my area. Huh.

  • One of my co-workers, who's camping out at a friend's place until he can find one of his own, got robbed. In his apartment. At night. While he was sleeping. Someone ninjaed in through an open second-story window and took his friend's TV, his iPhone and wallet. Apart from being freaked the fuck out over someone being in his house while he's sleeping, he didn't have a dime on him. He went to his folk's for the weekend, to recover a bit until he could move in to his new place. The worst thing? This is totally not an unheard of or even uncommon thing in Rome.

  • I just realized today that it's going to be ten years since I graduated from highschool and started university, and I've got a friend who's at that stage right now. (The best thing? We're both like, "What age difference?") Ah, squishy ♥ And since it's that season, there's a few Tumblr things about starting university which mean a lot because I can remeber it all happening, and because I'm seeing it happening to my squishy. So this.

...yeah, so I haven't been posting regularly in a while, and that's one part work sucking all my time and energy, one part Tumblr, and one part of "not much going on". Most of my day consists of work, which is currently being mind-numbingly dull, and the rest of it is spent trying not to melt in the unbearable heat. I still post a bit of fanart over on Tumblr, and I've been watching Season 1 of White Collar, which is awesome. It just feels like most of the time I'm desperately trying to keep up with all the things I want to do and just barely keeping my head above water.

Hence the massive LotD below. And the lack of Original Fiction Meme.

Okay, there's this thing and even though it says "click through for the zip" I seem to have gone blind because I can't see any through to click and thus no zip and then my face goes all :( Help?

While we're on the "Sickle's useless at figuring out not-really-so-complicated things on Tumblr", how to I put in a user icon? I don't even know what the things are called on Tumblr... Oh, I feel so internet-illiterate.

In other news, not much is going on and there's too much stuff on the internet.

So, fandoms are colliding. Case in point:
  • Bones having Angel's Angel and Hamilton together in a scene.

  • Medium having Firefly's Badger and Niska together in a scene.

I just...thought I'd point that out? Because I kinda want to do art about it but not now?

Speaking of Medium, I watched the third episode with Mark Sheppard (although really, the first one is a lie, because it has Mark saying two lines and then it's nothing but sitting there staring at the screen, consumed by lust, waiting for his character to show up again and he never does, at least not Mark-shaped). It made me rant at the screen.

So I'm going to rant at the screen again, in typed form. Because GRR ARGH. In which a woman is in labour and I do not agree with solution - and sentiments. )

Sweet monkies onna vine! My Special Hell Fanart is making the rounds on Tumblr \o/ People like! *dances*

Also, I wrote fics. Plural. X-Men: First Class's J'aboude and Supernatural's Promises and Pie Crusts. Crossposting will happen - eventually - at least for the Sueprnatural one. I'm just as shocked as y'all are that I actually finished something. Now, there's that fic I've got dying on my harddrive since last October...

Now, excuse me, I have to look through every Mark Sheppard tumblr thing ever. NOW. Ngh.

That long post I keep meaning to write, with the photographs, the drabble for that meme, and those fanart things, and all that other stuff? Yeah, not this one. Not enough time in the day, and I needs mah sleep. Stupid impending Monday...

I will say, though, that after [livejournal.com profile] seschat and my's nitpicking of the latest X Men for its feminism fail, I've been looking into a few things, as you'll see from the links. Also? The following wording is making me go GRR ARGH. Improve my ass. What does gender have to do with the Sorting Hat?!

bending_sickle: (OMG)
They say that yesterday it felt like 40 degrees Celcius, and today it basically felt just as hot. I had lunch outside 'cause that's where all the cool kids interns and volunteers eat, but just as I sat down they rolled up the tarps and exposed the whole balcony to the firey heat of a thousand suns. We, being young, stubborn, and stupid, stayed on, bravely sweating over our trays, squinting at each other's faces, and trying not to burn our fingers with the cutlery. Meanwhile, the pigeons were walking over tables and nabbing beans off of someone's forgotten half-eaten salad.

This afternoon my mom was listening to some Baroque music, including Pachelbel's Canon in D Major and I don't know if it's the heat or what, but I swear some of its melody is in Spiritualized's "Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space", meaning the "I will love you till I die and I will love you all the time, so please put your sweat hand in mine and float in space and drift in time" line.

...aaaand a quick google tells me that ain't news. *sigh* Now I no longer feel so accomplished. Also, songs based on Pachelbel's Canon and Paravonian's Pachelbel Rant.
