eruthros: Delenn building the crystal machine in season 1  of B5, captioned "foreshadowing" (B5 - Delenn incredible foreshadowing)
[personal profile] eruthros
1. I hurt two fingers doing PT this morning -- the nominally-strong fingers I use to provide resistance for my isometric strengthening exercises. Yes, seriously.

2. I can't for the life of me find Torchwood promo pictures from seasons one and two, pre-Children of Earth. My google-fu has failed, hard. Where the hell are they? Help plz fandom!

3. I am looking forward to yuletide lots and lots, but I can't figure out what I want to ask for! Last year I had this huge giant list of fandoms that I wished were yuletide fandoms (sometimes just because I wished they could go in the vid), and it was hard to narrow it down further, and it is only worse this year, as I have now realized a) that Pogo isn't a yuletide fandom and b) that I totally ship Pogo Possom and Porky Pine. Porky takes Pogo a flower every Christmas morning! He's only pretending to be a cynic! My heart is touched.

Also I want there to be more Bruce/Johnny Dead Zone fic, so there's that. And perhaps I want Steerswoman series Bel-fic, in which she is awesome and amazing. And perhaps I will ask again for Better Than Chocolate transfic (Judy/Frances!), though I am always concerned about whether it would be done well.

Other things that are not yuletide fandoms but should be:
a) Le Petit Prince. Listen, it would be just adorable. Or totally wrong and awesome.

b) Mony Python OR Monty Python RPF! How is this missing?

c) A whole suite of childhood-ruining fandoms, including The Smurfs, My Little Pony, Wallace and Gromit, Asterix, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (which, okay, is technically a yuletide fandom, but only one story from like 2003, and it's Shredder gen, when obviously there should be some turtle OT4 going on)

d) I assumed that yuletide would be on top of everything Callum Keith Rennie and Don McKellar and Molly Parker and Sandra Oh were ever in! But I was wrong -- we wanted to put a bunch of Canadom scenes in the yuletide vid, and kept being tripped up when we realized that they weren't, in fact, yuletide fandoms. Like, Last Night and Da Vinci's Inquest, where are you? (Twitch City and Men With Brooms and Wilby Wonderful are yuletide fandoms, at least.)

e) And while we're on the subject of actors that I thought fandom would be totally on top of, Don Juan de Marco and Edward Scissorhands and Cry-Baby aren't yuletide fandoms, either.

f) Mathnet. You know you want it.

g) West Side Story! Moulin Rouge! Probably other musicals as WELL.

h) The Maltese Falcon!

i) The Motorcycle Diaries, which is a beautiful film, and is basically a road-trip movie in which the coming of age is also a political awakening and a cementing of how two friends love each other and also it's really pretty.

j) Speaking of road trip movies: Thelma and Louise! How is this not a yuletide fandom!

k) Charlie's Angels! Another femmeslash classic!

l) The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air! I don't know what people would write, but come on, it'd be awesome.

What do you guys want for yuletide? I ask because I'm curious, though it will inevitably lead to more things to add to my list of possibilities this year.

4. I maaaaaybe have spent a little too much time looking at the list of yuletide fandoms in the last, oh, year or so.

I second the Steerswoman Bel-fic!! I am sad at how little page-time she's had, what with her being such a great character and all.

I really don't see how Bel being awesome and Bel/Rowan are mutually exclusive! That's like saying peanut butter and chocolate can't go together! Though I'll admit I would really like to know what Bel was up to while she was away for most of Book 3... epic quest fic? I feel like Bel/Rowan is so obvious it's like canon, or... why isn't it canon, again?

1. Oh that sucks about the fingers!

2. Maybe try torchwood picspam -"children of earth" in Google Images or a Liejournal Interest search for Torchwood for stillness comms?

3. I also vote for Le Petit Prince and Monty Python, just for sheer hilarity, and also the oeuvre of Johnny Depp, musicals, and Thelma and Louise. What, you mean there hasn't already been My Little Pony fic? Fandom, falling down on the job! I'd vote for Fresh Prince and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to see what happened.

I haven't got my list yet but it'll probably contain Middleman, Psych, Dark is Rising, and Coyote Kings of the Space-Age Bachelor Pad.

It would make me happy just to know it was around:) And The Coyote Kings of the Space-Age Bachelor Pad is a fun first novel by Minister Faust, in which best friends Hamza and Yehat get caught up in the hunt for a mysterious macguffin. I like it because the characters and the language are great and if I find anyone who can recreate them, I will bow down.

Is this the kind of thing you're looking for? (I'm not sure if that's all of them, and after the Rhys promo pic there are CoE stills instead of promo pics, though.)

Oh! That makes more sense!

How about these? Specifically, these from Season Two, the three with Tosh in them here (from To The Last Man), and the washed-out white one on the front page. Tosh is also pushed to the side--for your convenience!--in all of the "Team" pics. Why no Tosh love, BBC?!)

Hope this is more helpful than my last comment! :D

I'm still trying to make my list, and I can't think of anything other than my deep, deep desire to read Julius Caesar/Nicomedes IV of Bithynia Classical RPF, because apparently the entire frickin' world was convinced Caesar was sleeping with this guy, and I am really shocked, 'cause, you know, no one ever told me everyone at the time thought Caesar was gay. I think it requires fic! Except [personal profile] lysimache said she's not gonna volunteer for it, and I have no idea who else can write it for me.

Everything else I can think of I am worried I wouldn't like if I got it. Hmm. I hadn't thought of Twitch City, though. I think it is hard to write bad Twitch City fic.

Please to be explaining Steerswoman. :)

I'll ask, then, and see what I get. Sadly, I don't think the other guy was on HBO's Rome, otherwise I'd have a better chance. Maybe I should watch Rome.

Ooh, that does sound fun. *wishlists*

(Also, is your icon OMG, like, "OMG there is a Soul Hunter aboard?" or is it less, um, upset?)

Last year I requested a Nochnoi Dozor story with Olga/Sveta by preference or just Olga Being Awesome All By Herself, and I got Olga Being Awesome All By Herself With Heavy Olga/Sveta f/f Subtext, which I thought was really perfect, so I think your Steerswoman request(s) will probably combine well.
