My computer is driving me nuts with its rattling sound ( death rattle? ). I really, really must send it to the repair shop but I still need it to download Suits 103. Maybe tomorrow. So if you don't see me around it's because I don't have my computer with me. Hopefully not for long though.

Anyone here has seen Peter Jackson's Heavenly Creatures? Oh gosh, that scene where ... )

Saw the first episode of Dallas 2012 last night. I was actually prepared to not like it, because you know, I loved the original Dallas so very, very much. And also because Pam Ewing isn't in it and Bobby has a new wife *cries* but despite all that, I liked it, and yes, I want to watch the rest of it now. And it's good to see Delilah from The Faculty in it. I kind of like Elana even though she's nowhere as pretty as Rebecca. And omg, the twists and turns of it. I like!

Happy weekend everybody!

The Summer Holds A Song ( We Might Sing Forever ) and its sequel, Sand in Your Pockets and Nothing on Your Mind by [ profile] annundriel. SPN, Dean/Cas AU, NC-17, 11000 and 4500 words.

Summary: When Castiel rents John Winchester's beach house for the summer, all he's looking for is a quiet place to write. From the moment he lays eyes on John's teenage son, he knows his chances of staying free from distraction are nil.

An absolutely delicious AU that's so sensual and so erotic that it completely blew me away. Castiel's summer of sweet, sweet love.

Watched Wilfred season 2 premier last night and I was struck by how similar Jenna was to Jenny from Suits. What do you think?


I actually thought they were the same actress until I googled them up. Lol, and now I can't tell which one was Jenna and which one was Jenny from the pics above.

Speaking of Suits, 2x02 was another great episode. Gosh, I'm so in love with this show right now. Though I have to say that Mike's little triangle is a bit irritating, though not enough to spoil the show for me since Harvey and Donna and Jessica and Mike, even Louis, more than made up for the Rachel/Mike/Jenny kerfuffle.

Harvey reminds me a LOT of Jensen ( another Jen lol ) from It's A Terrible Life. Dean Smith would fit right into Harvey's world, all expensive dark suits and slicked back hair. Oh, if only Jensen would guest-star in an episode. I'll take him as anything, even a smarmy lawyer ala Louis, but preferably as Harvey's old buddy maybe? *dreams ...*

Also, did anyone else here see the movie Prometheus? I love it.

A couple of delightful fics which I've thoroughly enjoyed. Completely different from each other, like, well, ponies and movie stars, but both equally satisfying and happy-making.

Gone With The Wendigo by [ profile] bellatemple. SPN, gen, crossover with My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, PG-13, 26000 words.

Summary: Sam and Dean go into the New Hampshire wilderness to investigate a new case: whole groups of hikers are getting trapped in freak blizzards and then encased in solid ice. When a blizzard hits them on the trail, they take shelter in a nearby cave for the night, only to awake to find themselves transformed into brightly colored ponies and trapped in a whole new world where zebras speak in rhyme, ponies run apple orchards, good times and positive thinking are encouraged, and friendship? Friendship is magic.

This is crack, but if you've read the author's epic Dimensions and Veticals, you'd know that [ profile] bellatemple's cracks are not just cracks. They're cracks with substance and they make you feel and think just as much as they make you laugh. You don't need any prior knowledge of MLP to get this story. I didn't. Knew of MLP I mean. So go on, do read this. You know you want to!


Moonshine Lullaby by [ profile] akadougal and [ profile] tiptoe39. SPN AU, Dean/Cas, NC17, 38788 words.

Summary: Dean Winchester sweeps up after the stars in 1920s Hollywood. He and the actors on the set are worlds apart -- and that includes his brother, the famous Samuel C. Winchester. But when an accident brings Dean face to face with a matinee idol going by the name of Jimmy Novak, he's caught up in a love story right out of a movie script... until his estranged brother comes back into the picture, bringing drama of his own.

Set in the golden era of Hollywood, this swept me off my feet, totally and completely. Written with parallels to canon cleverly and seamlessly woven into the story - I was enthralled right from the very first paragraph. And it felt like I was holding my breath the entire time I was reading it - for fear of missing a word or a thought - I know, totally silly, but it felt like it, that was how immersed I was in the story. A keeper, this story, one which I'm going to read over and over again.

Because it's the weekend. And because Suits is back yay!! And because I need to sexify my LJ.

So, I've finished watching the finales of my regular shows and in the order of the ones which gave me the most joy and excitement and edge-of-the-seat suspense:

the usual suspects )

Close Your Eyes by [ profile] sonofabiscuit77. SPN, Sam/Dean AU, NC-17, 52,000 words.

Summary: There are some relationships so taboo they’re irresistible...

So, okay, this fic came with a lot of warnings, but the one thing that jumped out at me was this - the OMC in question is basically Alan Rickman, and I was like omg, Dean and an OMC who's Alan Rickman. That, together with all the other warnings, and I knew right away that this was going to be a train-wreck. And it is, in an emotionally-gripping, heart-breaking, totally GOOD and satisfying way. In other words, fasten your seat-belt. Tight.
layne67: (spn i've got you)
This might very well be what I need to make my love for the Wincest come back full force. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm ... How on earth did they make that clip????

Thank you [ profile] verucasalt123 for the heads-up!

Genderswap isn't really my thing and I usually give them a miss ( though I have to say that [ profile] dreamlittleyo's Res Gestae is one of my favourite stories ever ).

But this was written by [ profile] cloudyjenn, and you *don't* give her stories a miss. So I read, and I LOVE!

Walk a mile by [ profile] cloudy_fic. SPN, Dean/Cas, genderswap, 13400 words, NC-17.
Summary: Gabriel's deal is worth saving Bobby's life. Still, being stuck as a woman for three weeks is not Dean's idea of a good time.

This goes from extremely funny to extremely heartbreaking, extremely hot somewhere in between, and ultimately, a very satisfying ending.
layne67: (revenge emily)

What a perfect finale that was. Perfect.

Stay there and don't get revenge-y )

The Flames Of The Sun by [ profile] peroxide_fic. SPN, Sam with some Dean/Cas though that's not really the point, PG-13, 5530 words. Part of the "where Dean-doesn't-have-to-Sam-does-it-for-him" series.

Summary: The one where Dean doesn’t have to defend his honor because Sam does it for him.

I giggled helplessly throughout this story. Told from Sam's POV, it's about how he perceived Dean, his badass big brother who could totally beat the crap out of 99% of the general population of humans, except perhaps the Shaolin monks. Or Jackie Chan. Or when Dean's big gay angel love is accidentally outed in public right down the middle of Main Street in a town in the middle of bumfuck Nebraska.

They look like they’re working on mustering up enough burning bigotry to storm over to the Winchesters’ table and try to run the three of them out of town in the name of God and decency and the sanctity of marriage or something.

Sam almost feels sorry for them. It’s not like any of them know that the wimpy looking guy in the trench coat probably gets to judge whether or not their eternal souls get into heaven or not from here on out. They probably also have no idea that Cas can explode their heads with a thought if he wants to either.

When the posse starts getting into what Sam recognizes as some sort of hick marching formation, he hastily excuses himself from the table—not like Cas and Dean notice or anything—and goes to intercept.

A fun read!

While everyone else is already squeeing ( or ranting, as the case may be ) over the finale, I've only just watched 7x21. I like loopy!Cas. He could be a nice prelude to stoned!Cas from the End!verse. And thank you Ben Edlund for some very nice shots of Dean and Cas together!

I don't get why Meg needed to babysit Cas at the asylum. I guess I could go rewatch the earlier episodes and find out but if someone could just please tell me ( without any finale-spoiler that is )?

I haven't been to the TWoP forums for quite a while. The last time I was there was for The Amazing Race season 4 which was a long time ago. I stopped going there pretty much because the comments there could be very hurtful. I certainly didn't go there for SPN ( which I heard was wanky most of the time? ) or any of the shows that I like. No point in getting upset and depressed and distressed when you could avoid it.

Anyyway, I was curious about what they were saying about American Idol Top 3 and rather to my surprise, I didn't find the discussion there particularly mean. Or maybe that was because I'm not invested in any of them, and in most cases, I agree with what they were saying.

Not really rooting for anyone in particular ( though at one point I was quite into Jessica when she sang that Whitney's song ), but if I had to choose, I'd choose Joshua. And please, no spoilers, I haven't seen the result show yet!

And also, I was reminded of another reason why I stopped going to TWoP. It was addictice! Before I knew it, I had spent almost the whole morning reading all the comments lol

Ever have that story which you put off reading not because you don't want to read it, but because you want to very, very much? The story that you just know is going to be good and you don't want to read it just yet because you don't want the happy anticipation to end. This is one of those.

The Overflow by [ profile] murron. SPN, Dean/Cas, NC-17, 16600 words. 7x16 AU, you know, the one where Dean meets Emmanuel. Only Jonah is so much better than Emmanuel. So much.
Summary: Café owner Tamàs walks his dog near Bockboot reservoir when he stumbles upon a man with no memory. Welcoming the stranger to his home, Tamàs has no idea who he’s dealing with until two FBI agents blow into town.

Off to re-read. And *that* I can't put off.

Do you have any of those intro themes from TV shows that you simply can't get out of your head?

These are mine.

Game of Thrones 2x06: Was stoked to see David Nutter as the director of this episode. The David Nutter who used to be on SPN, the one who directed Pilot, woot! The episode didn't disappoint. And anyway, now I know to NOT think of the books when watching the show. I thought too much of them watching the first couple of episodes and while I wouldn't say that they didn't meet my sky-high expectations, they were not exactly what I was expecting. It's good now though, and I'm enjoying season 2 as much as I did season 1.

The Amazing Race 20 God, such a nerve-wrecking finale, almost like season 4 finale when it was Reichen and Chip all the way for me. I'm so happy that team won, they totally deserved it.

Survivor: That has GOT to be one of the most delicious moments in Survivor, right up there with JT passing that note to Russell. Read more... )

SPN: The Girl with the tattoos and whatnots. That was fun. I really enjoyed Charlie and the story as a whole. Read more... )

The Amazing Race: Finale coming up soooon and I do hope my team will win!

Watched SPN, the one with Bobby, and I had a craving to rewatch Ghost. It had been, like, what - 20 years? Watching it, I still cried, no, bawled, like a baby. I cried the hardest during that last scene. And also, I only just realized that Molly's last name was Jensen. Lol, I certainly didn't notice that back then!

How many times did you watch it at the theater when it first came out? I went 5 times.

Once Upon A Time - the one with the Queen's backstory. I really didn't want to feel any sympathy towards her but I did. Thank goodness it was short-lived.

I was really impressed with the little girl who played young Snow. She had the older Snow's mannerisms down pat, and she looked a LOT like Ginnifer Goodwin that I'm surprised that they're not related.

Revenge - that last episode. Read more... )
