 Continuing my summer binge watch catch up plans, I’ve seen over 2 seasons of New Girl and am now halfway through Season 3, and after a healthy break of a few months I’ve picked back up Shameless to see the latest season and am halfway through that as well.
 
First, New Girl.
  • I think Winston is my favorite character now. Him and the whole cat thing, every episode I find myself enjoying his scenes the most. Nick had been my favorite but since coupling with Jess, he just isn’t the same funny character.
  • And Schmidt, I really had liked the twist of hooking up with Cece during Season 1 and getting serious about her but the way they broke that up in S2 & S3 has been more sad than funny and ever since they started doing flashbacks of Schmidt in his fat years, his damn chin looks huge all the time and is distracting me.
  • And Coach. I had really liked him in the pilot but now that he’s back, it just doesn’t feel right. There’s almost too many people now. I’ve noticed less Cece as a result.
Second Shameless.
  • There’s been less, depravity this season, which I’m thankful for, but also I really didn’t like the choices they had Fiona make. Sure she’s had bad taste in men, but she has for the most part been the responsible Gallagher for the most part, and for her to squander her best situation in years/ever so easily … it just didn’t feel true to the character. More like the show making sure that things didn’t get too good for the family and to bring it all back to hell.
  • This seemed to be a recurring theme, like Ian’s return, making choices that he wouldn’t seem to make to bring him back and most likely in even worse shape. And its these odd circumstances that I’m sure are going to pull Lip back away from his escape to college.
  • I think Vee and Kevin are my favorite characters, and the hilarity that is going on with the baby situation and subletting to Mickey and his Russian girls, the confrontation with Stan’s son - they are definitely carrying the lighter side of the show.

I've been horrible about keeping this journal up to date but I haven't really been doing any original posts on tumblr, mostly reblogging. I have been posting reviews of my first watches of films so that will probably make its way over here too but I'll try to do some more commentary in the future. Now some comments on the TV I've been catching up on this past month since the new stuff has mostly ended.
  • Marvel Agents of SHIELD - I’m still catching up on the show. I just finished 1.16 “End of the Beginning” and still liking the show but I think this is where Captain America 2 gets tied-in next and I haven’t seen that yet so might have to wait awhile to finish.
  • Hart of Dixie - Just finished Season 1. It is so funny how much this feels like old WB show. Even had an episode where a singer popped in to perform. I really liked everything about this show, helped me tolerate all the triangles going on lol. Reminded me of when I enjoyed Everwood.
  • Bob’s Burgers - Finished Season 2. Tumblr pushed me to finally watch it. This is such a good show. I think there’s only been one or two episodes that just were bad.
  • Shameless - Finished Season 3, anxious to start season 4 after hearing all the reactions from friends when it was airing. It’s hard to say how I feel about this show, I care about some of the characters but wow, horrible things happen a lot.

Also on my to-see list this summer but I’ve not started yet:
True Detective
Black Sails
Sleepy Hollow
Vikings
Orphan Black

It’s that time of year again. Porn Battle is starting back up and right now it’s prompt submission time.
I’ll be contributing prompts at least. I hope to find time to write a story or two as well.

Finally saw MIB3 this past week and how could you not come out of that film totally behind the Team OK ship? Yeah, it sort of flubs with the storyline of the first film and the love that K left behind, but 2 sort of showed that was a flawed relationship given how they dumped that to bring K back.
But that aside, Young Agent O and Young Agent K were so adorable.

 As I was going through my old fic tags to properly tag my [community profile] fandom_stocking drabble, I came to realize several things, one there's quite a few friends I've lost on here over the years, which is sad to think about, but on a lighter note. I was surprised to notice that Man of Steel's release didn't rejuvenate the 12days_of_clois  community. I remember how Superman Returns really sparked that place for awhile but I'm just guessing most of the people that were there have just moved on? It's a shame, can't say I've really been aware of Man of Steel fic in the same way.

Two Creative Goals for 2014: A Daily Drawble & Write 1k words a day. Originally I was going to do a chapter a day or 3k words a day but to be honest I don't know how long chapters would be and roughly it takes me 2 hours to get over 1k depending on the idea/progress I've made. I wanted to make the goal specific, a realistic length and to publicly announce it. I don't care if its original work,fic, song writing or even blogging/commentary on something I just want to write. And I just want to be able to draw decently. That would be nice. Practice makes perfect. So making an effort to do just that.

 The stockings went live earlier this week and I was really excited to find some great fic recs, a shipping graphic and a drabble in mine! Had to share the sweet story that was written so more eyes see it.

Can I have this dance? by [personal profile] navaan . It's DCU Dick/Babs, a bit of quiet domesticity. I miss those two, so this was a nice gift.

 I'm participating in Fandom Stocking this year. Here's mine.
There are tons of stockings hung so browse around and see where you feel you can contribute. I'm focused on the upcoming Faberry fandom week at the moment but will be spending the latter part of this month on filling some stockings if I can.
It's been forever since I've done something fandomy like this so I'm hoping it kickstarts me out of my writing funk/malaise I've been in.

  • NCIS - I still watch but it suffers from being unremarkable. I like to rewatch any episode from the first 6 seasons but nothing in the last 5.

  • Bones - I still can’t stand Booth/Brennan domestic scenes but everything inside the Jeffersonian is solid.

  • Brooklyn Nine-Nine - The supporting cast is amazing, the episodes are funny and charming. But the main character is hit and miss. Mostly miss for me. Also the secretary, can’t stand her.

  • Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - I’m behind a few episodes but it’s about what I expected. Like Coulson, like Skye, like the pilot. Can’t stand Fitz.

  • Back in the Game - The first new show that I tried and dropped after three episodes. Just didn’t find it funny. Love Maggie Lawson and James Caan but no.

  • The Tomorrow People - Really starting to fall in love with this show. Sure it suffers from CW’s everyone is young and beautiful syndrome, but have been enjoying the episodes and the developing backstory.

  • CSI - I feel like the reinvigorating push that came from adding Danson & Shue is starting to wear off.

  • Once Upon a Time in Wonderland - I’m loving this show but you have to ignore the glaringly obvious green screen scenes when they’re walking around in Wonderland. Jafar is crazy, Alice is courageous, Knave is interesting.

  • The Crazy Ones - It’s on shaky ground of being dropped. It’s very hit and miss, maybe every other episode is good? Some episodes only one moment is good, the rest of the time it’s like a chore to get through.

  • The Michael J. Fox Show - This is a charming show. It reminds me of Modern Family, but not quite as funny. Great cast.

  • Elementary - This show is my favorite show. Every episode is great and I hope it starts getting recognized for it.

  • Hawaii Five-0 - This season has been so much better than last season, when I was ready to drop off from boredom.

  • Dracula - I don’t know how to feel about this show. The story is picking up its pace since the disjointed first episode, but I really don’t care about Grayson and his fascination with Mina Murray. I’d find it more interesting if Grayson somehow found himself falling for the enemy, Lady Jane Wetherby.

9PM Beauty and the Beast S2, CW (Haven't watched an ep)
TUESDAY
8PM NCIS S11, CBS (Legacy show. No rewatch value anymore.)

9PM The Tomorrow People S1, CW (Was this on yet? I was excited for this but haven't paid attention to when it debuts)
10PM CSI S14, CBS (Legacy Show. The premiere was HORRIBLE. Danson/Shue gave the show a bump the last two seasons but now the show is feeling stale again)

8PM The Vampire Diaries S5, CW (Have never watched an ep)

10PM Dracula S1, NBC (Can't wait for this! This is my most anticipated Fall show. Hope it succeeds like Elementary did last year for me.)

 Firstly, popped in Smallville S2 DVD and watched 2.04 Red today during my cardio workout, which is where I left off in ‘His Girl Friday’. One step closer. Excited to step back into that world. My ideas for Lex, Lana, Pete, The Kents as supporting characters for Chlark needs to see fruition. *bounces*

And secondly, once I actually have fic to post and contribute again I wanted to start posting at Ao3 but had a question to those that move stories over to Ao3. Is there a preferred method that won’t flood/overwhelm people? Or is that not even a worry and you can just upload the chapters all at once and it won’t mess up alerts or update categories.
I don’t know I’ve never actively searched for fic on Ao3, I tend to get links to stories there and that’s how I read fic there. I want to move over a story once I get the next chapter done and just want to do it right?
