Didn't sleep a wink last night, no kidding, honest. I gave up around 6am. Emd result, asleep on my feet right now, even an episode of Angel didn't make me feel any more awake. Of course having a Chinese with Ronnie and David might not have helped. Ronnie and I have a new system. We buy one soup, one starter and one main course between us, then just half it. It seems to work out better that way. Only downside is Ronnie is a vegatarian, which limits our choices, except he still eats fish, which helps.

Ok, going for a nap, cannot think any more.

What has surprised you the most about me
(if anything)
since joining my flist?

Was anything completely unexpected or have I always
fit the picture of me you have/had in your head?

When you've answered, post this in your own journal
and see how you have surprised people.

Would love a vid featuring Eliot from Leverage to the song "A Different Kind of Knight" by Christian Kane, but cannot find any!

Have to remember to watch "Being Human" on BBC1 tonight at 9pm

Also, hungry, need to indulge my addition for Rustleres beefburgers in the microwave when I feel like this!

Hi folks, been off line for a while, got internet connection back, but not landline. If you left a reply to any post I made before going offline, sorry will try to get my head back to the place I made the post before replying, but it has been a while

If anyone posted anything in the past week that you think I should know about, please post a link, in the meantime going to catch up on Leverage!

In comments to my previous entry, I was just wondering.

[Poll #1447818]
lady_windermere: Spike profile (Default)
Ok, so RTD keeps saying how much he admires Joss Whedon. Has he learned anything from him at all? Let us look at one scernio "Willow's reaction to Tara's death Vs Jack's reaction to Ianto's death", and I think we will see that RTD is a big FAIL!

How RTD didn't do it right )

Ok those are my thoughts. What do you think? Agree, disagree, on the fence? Let me know.

I promise this is the last you will hear from me on the subject, I'm in morning for Ianto, and less involved in the Torchwood fandom now because of it. I think the only thing that will bring be back for Season Four is James Marsters coming back.

Was talking to Ronnie today about the sites we visit most. For me, LJ still comes first, I check my e-mails, then LJ as soon as I wake up. Ronnie asked what was to interesting about LJ, and I said fandom, but really it is more than that. When I first got LJ it was for fandom reasons, but it has branced out since then. What about you?

[Poll #1447024]

Ummmm!

So Ronnie and I are watching an episode of Angel, Season Two. The next one on the list is "First Impressions", but I was wondering which one you would recommend us to watch, as the season has quite a strong story arc, therefore a poll.

[Poll #1446453]

I kind of like this little story!

Title: Once In A Blue Moon
Authors: [livejournal.com profile] eviltwin
Summary: Jared's an ordinary, not overly popular student who makes an innocent but heartfelt wish, with no idea what he's letting himself in for. Jensen's an oversexed fairy godmother(..godfather..whatever) who suddenly finds himself with a new assignment.

Title College!Verse
Author: [livejournal.com profile] aleia
Summary: This is epic, I really mean it. 32 chapters to the first verse, 45 chapters to the second verse and lots of places where other stories have fitted in. Jared is in his first year at College, while Jensen is an RA for his floor. Jensen's complicated background sometimes gives Jared's 18 year old self some problems. The best link is in the tags, but worth trying other tags and finding other gems.

Had a Chinese take out yesterday Wor Tip Chicken, but as usual there was enough for two meals, so I left half for today. Heated it up, had two mouthfuls and was ill. Going to let my poor stomach recover and have some soup later. Groan.

Edit. Think I might have a very early night instead, probabaly be up at 3am if I do.

These are the final recs from Big Bang.

From [livejournal.com profile] hils

Title: Here's Fragging You, Kid
Author: purequicksilver
Summary: The Professional Gamers AU: Jensen "Frakles" Ackles' is the most successful Quake 3 gamer ever and Jared has always been his biggest fan. Now Jared has followed in the footsteps of his idol and become a professional first person shooter gamer himself – but Frakles retired from professional gaming before they could meet. Now Frakles is back and – thanks to Chad, who is working for a popular gaming show on TV - Jared finally gets the opportunity to meet the man who has been his idol since he was nineteen…
My comments: You know, this series of big bang fics has made me realise that I have a bit of thing for reading fics where the boys are geeks. I know nothing about professional gaming but it doesn't matter, this fic just works and it's cute and sweet and funny

My comment: Just go read, it is wonderful!

Title: This Course We Plotted
Author: mickeym
Summary:Jared Padalecki has a life he loves: friends, family, a good job and plans to make it as a writer someday. All that is shaken up when he meets Detective Jensen Ackles one night, while working an overtime shift. Jensen is smart, interesting, fun to hang out with, and Jared's drawn in like a moth to a flame. They go from friends to lovers, to something even Jared didn't know he was looking for: partners. But Jensen's never done relationships, and he's not sure he can now. Will he realize his job is just a job, but Jared is his everything?
My comments: There's just something charming about this one. The build up to the relationship is natural and the background characters are all great

Title: Each Day's A Gift (And Not A Given Right)
Author: soledadseraph
Summary:January 1998; two lives become irreversibly tangled together when rookie cop Jared Padalecki gets caught up in his first big case; seventeen year old misper, Jensen Ackles. Young and naive, he's not prepared for the emotional impact of Jensen's plight and finds himself getting sucked into a world he never knew existed; a world of pain and friendship and broken trust. Eleven years later, youth and innocence long since left behind, the one thing Jared can't forget is Jensen. That inability is the one thing that's going to turn both their lives upside down.
My comments: This is a rare one for me because I don't normally even touch fics that have scenes of non-con but I read this one and it's pretty amazing! Bucketloads of angst so be prepared for that but it's worth the read I think.

Hi folks, yes I was offline for a couple of days, computer woes, but I'm back now. Would've been sooner, but the local computer shop decided to go on holiday until the 21st, so Glasgow was nearest.

Ended us watching so really wierd TV. Two people living a "luxuary" Ancient Roman life style, all I can say is I would've been a vestal virgin, the vegertarin option seemed best (wombs and testicles, *shudder*). Well I guess they had to make the most of the meat, but well, not for me.

I will post the Big Bang recs tomorrow. That will be the last of them, for this season anyway.

Oh if anyone posted anything interesting on Sunday, Monday or Tuesday, could you give me a link?

For various reasons I'm a little bored today, so saw a few people on my friends list doing this, and thought I would as well

As me my Top Five Fanish interests, and I will answer in a new post this week. Can be any top five lists you want

Recs from [livejournal.com profile] kitty_poker1 This week.

Fic title: Life in a Cubicle: A Guide to Dating a Co-Worker
Author name: villiageidiot
Artist name: grayscaled
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: PG-13ish
Word count: 37,700+
Summary: There are ten rules about interoffice dating and Jared Padalecki pretty much fails at all of them. It happens like this: Jared works in a cubicle. Jensen is the oblivious engineer. Jared meets Jensen. Jared falls in love with Jensen. Jensen… needs a little coaxing. Also starring Chad the Maintenance Guy, Danneel in Payroll, Tom as the mildly disgruntled Mail Room Guy and Mike in HR. And Misha the Receptionist? Still ruining lives. Mostly Tom’s. And Jared’s. But mostly Tom’s (who deals with it like any rational person would: mail bombs and spiked coffee).
Reason for reading: Totally adorable, laugh-out-loud funny, and so tightly and well written that it seems to fly by all too quickly. I loved it.

Title: One for the Good Guys
Author: cdeacon
Artist: gottalovev and smiledrawinglie
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~23000
Summary: Jared is an up-and-coming pitcher with a checkered past. If he wants to play in the big leagues again, he'll have to figure out how to work with Jensen, a has-been catcher with a serious attitude problem. (Loosely based on The Taming of the Shrew, with some Bull Durham thrown in.)
Reason for reading: A sheer pleasure, start to finish. Gentle, relaxed, very well written with lashings of dry, mature humour. And for those who know nothing about baseball (like me), don’t worry. Any mentions are very easy to follow.

Title: Mildred: A College AU
Authors: causeways and walkawayslowly
Artist: sillyshy
Word Count: 62,131
Rating: NC-17
Official Summary: It is a truth universally acknowledged that a Jared in possession of his heterosexuality will immediately switch teams upon enrollment in college and first contact with Jensen Ackles.
Original Summary: Jared goes to college and is gay for Jensen Ackles. It's a real shocker, sports fans.
Real Summary: No really, that’s all that happens. For 60,000 words.
Reason for reading: The summaries (and title) will tell you something about the writers and their soh. *g* It’s really a Jared fic with a heavy side order of Jensen but don’t let that put you off. It’s highly entertaining and the OCs are well enough drawn to almost deserve a fic of their very own!

Fic title: Mismanaged
Author name: macbyrne
Artist name: vamptastica
Genre: RPS
Pairing: Jared/Jensen, also some Jared/OFC and Jared/OMC
Rating: NC-17
Word count: 58K
Warnings/Spoilers: Mentions of dub-con, graphic non-con, underage sex, forced prostitution, rape, child abuse, angst. Lots of angst. Buckets of angst.
Summary: Jared has a secret that he hides from everyone. The only family he has left, his manager has been manipulating him, forcing him to audition the old-fashioned way: on his knees. When he meets Jensen, he knows his secret is in jeopardy. When Jensen finds out, will he listen or will he break Jared's heart?
Reason for reading: Very powerful, beautifully written, hypnotic reading. If you can handle the promised buckets of angst and the warnings (which should be taken very seriously), I can promise you won’t be sorry you read.
Incidentally, quite a few of you will recognise the name of the artist, another good reason to take a look. :)

Why does LJ suddently want to download mediaplayer? I didn't do it, because I don't trust the site just now, not with all this DoS stuff.
