So that hiatus is over. Honestly, it was mostly in my head; I was still around, lurking, I just felt like I had removed any pressure to engage. Although I forgot myself a few times, there, so a few of you heard from me anyway. :D Anyway, I will probably continue to be a little slow responding to comments and such for a while.
1. Have started watching Breaking Bad; I've seen the first season. Everybody told me it was amazing, and it is. Time lapse photography! Consistent characterization! And also Aaron Paul having the most amusing, most delightful inflection known to man.
However, nobody told me that it is like a marginally more sympathetic Coen brothers miniseries, and it's that, too. I feel like I wouldn't have any idea how to watch this show without first having seen, say, Fargo
and The Ladykillers
. The former, especially; Walter White reminds me a lot of the Steve Buschemi character in Fargo
, only rather more competent. Also, there certain scenes in this show that suggest parallels with the wood chipper.
Otherwise, I don't have a lot to say about it yet other than that I agree with all the points selenak
makes in this post
2. I haven't been writing much. I do have 3k of fic for genteensybang
, but I don't really like it. I don't have a word written for spn_j2_bigbang
yet and haven't even really settled on a story.
I also have absolutely nothing written for my spnpairingbingo
card; I've managed to write several shippy things since I got it, but they either were pairings not on the card (Sam/Madison, Sam/Jess) or not long enough (Dean/Bela). And now I reeeeally want to write some Meg/Castiel (perhaps inspired by this gifset
), which isn't on the card either. I think I'm doing this bingo thing wrong.
3. I watched SPN. My thoughts are brief: ( spoilers )
4. It never fails to make me sad when I see a fic marked Jared/Gen or Jensen/Danneel on AO3 only to realize that the primary ship is actually J2. This is true of like 95% of the fics marked Jared/Gen or Jensen/Danneel on AO3.
will introduce an exciting new feature on Sunday. :D
