Posting at [livejournal.com profile] halfamoon is going on until the 14th in celebration of characters who identify as women (I'm absolutely thrilled that the festivities are explicitly including characters who aren't cisgendered!) There's been a ton of fantastic fan work posted across a huge variety of fandoms, from the tiny and obscure to the big players, but I want to highlight The Unpopular Woman Love Post.

There are some awesome characters popping up – Riley (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles), Gwen (Torchwood), Gwen (BBC Merlin), Jo Grant (Classic Who), Ellen, Jo, and Bela (Supernatural) Dee, Tory, and Cally (Battlestar Galactica), Weir (Atlantis), Dawn (Buffy)


Go show these under appreciated characters some love already!

Quick fic rec for you this morning, a snapshot of the relationship between Supernatural's Special Agent Henrikson and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles' Agent Ellison. Gen, spoilers through "Jus in Bello" and "The Demon Hand" respectively. Requiem (Casualties of the Human Condition) Go read, it's delightful!

Furiously writing fic, being poked with needles (less furiously), and working on Tuesday's presentation about society and dissent. Amongst other things! I have also got my hands on the latest and final Codex Alera book by Jim Butcher, oh yes.

Why hello there!

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] aldehyde and [livejournal.com profile] deeplyunhip for your lovely cards! I found them waiting for me when I got in last night. That does mean I'm back in the east, happily settling back into routines. I missed you, eddoes and kolhrabi! (Could not find them on the west coast and it was sad.) I'm currently losing the jet lag battle, but give it a few days; I always have a harder time coming east than going west.

Though it wasn't all on what I should have been working on (ficathon deadline is starting to loom), I wrote some comment fic over the holidays. Riley-centric TSCC fic here, Martha-centric Doctor Who fic here, Torchwood Jack fic here and a little bit of love for Supernatural's Ellen Harvelle.

I'm not entirely happy with the Martha fic in particular; I'm far too wordy and maybe it's formality that I don't like in the tone, but I can't quite put my finger on the problem with it. I like the Jack piece best. I'm so much more comfortable with dialogue!

OKAY, NOW THE SILLY PART. Poll under the cut. (I forgot the other option, no biscuit for me. Leave a comment if I am clearly wrong and missed the very best bit.)

Here is the non-fictional reaction to "The Real Ghostbusters" :P

I've also seen the clips for next week and YESSSSSSSS, I LOVE THE CASTING SO HARD. In both videos, actually, but especially in the second one. (And the Vancouver-based actors just keep getting recycled on new shows, I love it.)

[livejournal.com profile] donutsweeper posted a set of "Five Times" Supernatural stories which detail Five Ways Dean Did Not Become a Hunter. The first drabble, At his grandfather's knees, is my favourite, but the third, Graduating summa cum laude with a degree in Hunting Science, is proving a terrible, terrible distraction from my own academics.

Required courses for Hunting Science would include Latin I and II, Introduction to Critical Mythology, History of Hunting, and a fourth year Advanced Seminar in Hunting Methodology. Electives might include an Ethics class (you know I'm thinking of Sam), a media studies crosslist called "Bump in the Night: The Supernatural in Popular Culture", and some sort of mythology crosslist. It's the small sort of program that would rely heavily on cross-lists for its electives.

The program-in-my-head has a definitely social sciences slant, which is no surprise given my own background. I also feel that a more practical approach would belong in a college setting (using the Canadian definition of college), though I suppose it could also be comparable to a professional degree.

I am way too old to be crushing on the bad boy, but it's clear that Dean Winchester's secret depths of emotional pain and pretty, pretty eyes have done me in.

The premiere of Supernatural: surprisingly catchy! The roles the women played were about as awful as I expected (note: not a comment on the acting, which was good to excellent), but it was interesting and fun and made me want to watch some more. Poor Jared Padalecki is a bit typecast in this role; I can see echoes of Dean of Gilmore Girls. We'll have to see where the role takes him!

You know, I'm not all that far in yet, but I kind of get why people slash the leads. It's hard to think of them as actual brothers. Even if the banter is just right for family, the chemistry is all wrong.

Episode two is making me flail with Battlestar love. Callum Keith Rennie (Leoben) and Donnelly Rhodes (Doc Cottle) are both present and it's really quite fun. (To hell with dim lighting meshing badly with streaming quality; I'd recognize Rhodes' voice anywhere.) Additionally, I'm glad they're making Dean a slightly sympathetic ass in this episode, as in the pilot he was mostly just a slightly charming ass, in that way that only fictional characters can get away with.

Also, the show is a bit spooky and I'm a bit afraid to go upstairs alone into the dark.
