I've had a FULL ON day, so in order to relax I have a glass of wine before me and my LJ open.
This is a mixed bag of recs, links and blab..
Let's start with...
starting with me squeeing about candle_beck
I'm pretty sure you've all discovered the awesomeness that is this talented writer but I also want to squee about her amazing podfics. She reads her own stories and I think I may well be in love with her voice. It's quite something that the timbre of her voice matches the tone and colour of her stories. If you haven't discovered the joy of listening to podfic may I suggest you take a listen to one of hers and you may well be sold on the art form.Here be links to her podfics and fics
The SPN ones are mostly Sam/Dean - though many are fairly mild. There's an honesty about her Sam/Dean fics that will have you completely sold on the idea.. Beautiful, poetic and visceral.
While I'm fangirling let me also point out the wonderful talent that is august_monsoon
Have you seen her art?! If not you are missing out. I think my favourite might be Smoking Cas
though Smoking Dean
is right up there too. (I think we need a smoking Sam to complete the set *g*) She has lots of lovely works though so go check her out. *g*
And while I'm in fangirl mode I have to acknowledge the fab maichan
. We are working on a vid together at the moment and the work she's doing just makes me SQUEEEE... though I am sure we are all in constant fangirl mode with maichan. <33
As you all probably know TV Guide has announced all the fan favourite winners and OF COURSE Supernatural took away the favourite Sci Fi Show
because we are so awesome at voting. \o/ GO US!! (though um..? Sci Fi? *head shake*).
The gorgeous Jensen took away the Fan Fav Male Actor (yay!) and Misha took away the "Best Non Human Character". Though... um.... really? There's such an award...? But yay Misha. Even though I'm not a huge Cas fan I am totally loving Misha. Not in any "minion" sense but I think he's an all round amazing guy. I have the utmost respect for him.
But Jared.. :((( He missed out. So. In honour of my darling and most wonderful Jared I (personally) give him "The Best Character Who Wasn't The Character You Started Out Playing" Award. (What? Soulless!Sam totally deserved an award. He rocked it! If you can come up with a better one lay it on me!! seriously do!
I've been enjoying the JiB con footage. Particularly when Misha asks the boys a question
... Hilarious. Many thanks to animotus
for the pics and footage. She's a star. <333 And to greyowl88
for keeping me in the loop. ;)
Now for a complete change of topic....
Can't speak... just have to show this gif I pinched. This totally sums it up:
That actually happened. Danny to Steve. Yes it did. *BFG*
So, here's the thing. I'm thinking that the bromance that is Steve and Danny might possibly rival my all time favourite cop bromance that is Starsky and Hutch. Nearly. Not quite yet because it's only been a season.. but if they continue this way I think it might just tip the scales.
The love and respect these two have for each other is right out there. And here's the (other) thing. I think this show really knows that strong fan support comes when fans can latch onto these kind of pairings, so I think they are really playing this for all it's worth. They are going to totally give it to us... they way they did with S&H. So YAY! Though I suspect this is much more played upon
than S&H ever was. Maybe?
But I also love that Chin and Kono are absolutely fabulous also. They totally have the characters right with this show. I have some issues with the way some of the stories play out. It really calls for major suspension of disbelief. I'm good at doing that (hee.. I watch Supernatural after all) but because this is set in a more "realistic" cop genre I don't like to have to spend a lot of my viewing time saying "that would never happen..." Or.."the chances that Steve and Danny are walking through the mountains and happen upon a dead body..." etc.
But it's cool. I do enjoy the escapism that is H50. At least it doesn't leave my heart torn to shreds like another show I watch.
Speaking of which...... IT'S BACK SOON!!!! HOMG! How long has this damn hiatus friggin' been. I want... no... NEED show YESTERDAY! totally pumped for the last handful of episodes. I don't really care what they do as long as we have the boys together.
Sorry for long rambly (possibly non sensical) post. After the day I had just need to post stuff...
*hearts* you all.
