In which I mostly read my own fic and then watch a few vids...

I'm such a narcissist. Every time I do come back here over the last few years, if I bother to read any fic, it is almost always my own. HA!

Today my stroll down memory lane includes:

Playing with DollsAction Figures
Worth A Thousand Words
Say Yes
Business Casual
Set The Fire To the Third Bar

And then I fell down a vid hole when I went to see if there was a vid for Set the Fire to third bar. There was, but I didn't love it. But I did find this Glad You Came. Which is really well done, but much too short.

And then I watched this: A Thousand Years. Which I've shared before, but am sharing again because I'm a sucker for this cheesy song.

And now I'm watching the show...309 because that was apparently where I left off last time on netflix. I am pondering watching from the beginning again...

So I actually came over here to whine about real life, but then wound up using all my time to share the insanity that is my brain in the comments of this post See Comments for proof of my crazy.

I'm not sure in the history of tv or movies or books, that there has ever been a scene that makes me squee as much as the last scene of 308.

Tonight I watched 406, which was a delight. Justin is particularly adorable in this episode. It of course isn't a delight at the end when Vic dies, but the Justin and Brian bits, sheer delight.

I like the counterpoints of Ben and Brian in this episode when their respective partners are excited about Rage, and how they respond to that.

Brian kicking Justin's feet on the couch at Babylon, and drunk!justin, perfection.

The gym scene, adorbs.

I went from this episode back to 308, now that is a fine night of television.

And anyway, you don't get jealous when two puppies frolic. You cock your head, think, "Aww, isn't that precious," then when they're all tuckered out, you pick up your mutt and go home.

Still one of my favorite lines of all time from any fic.

The BIG Problem with 513

There is a BIG problem with 513 BIG PROBLEM. And it isn't what you think it is.

You should help me discuss it over at [info]oaf_coffeeclub.

On this morning's rewatch list when I should actually be getting ready to go to a baseball game - 312.

Call me a wimp, but I totally skipped past all of the ted/emmett parts. I just can't.

Debbie at the orgy is pretty much the best thing ever. bwahahahaha. Although Justin's reactions the morning after are almost as entertaining.

"You better buckle up, for safety." "You ask too many questions." hehe. Brian and Hunter, always entertaining.

Hustler!Justin :) "Fucking teenagers..." *snort*

Oh no! There is a problem with watching this episode, I now immediately want to watch 313. And I can't. Boo.

Also, I have only 2 icons of 312 now. SCREW YOU IJ! :(


If you need some help getting going on this Sunday morning...


As an added bonus, [info]outlander, this video almost makes it look like Brian can dance.

In other news, my journal needs a simplified facelift. I need a new banner. But this isn't 2008. So I can just say that and someone will make one magically appear. Boo.

If ever you feel like you need some help ripping out your heart and shredding it into little pieces. Or, less dramatically, you just need a good cry..

This was always my best source for all the death!fic you could ever want to read. Thanks so much [info]pendulumchanges!

Really, how do they manage to make taking off a sock look so sexy?

Can't stop watching...

So far I've watched 308, 310, 311, 402, 511, 512 and 513. In no particular order. What next?

Comments so far after watching those episodes...

Brian and Justin are still ridiculously pretteh.

I have fits of laughter every time Brian is overly dramatic, which is far more often than I had remembered. Like seriously he can be season 1 Justin level dramatic, and it is hilariously adorable.

Melanie really did have the longest pregnancy ever recorded on tv.

Britin is FUCKING HUGE. HUGE. Way bigger than I remembered. And frankly fits Brian's personality just fine by that point in the show. He kept it, right? Just like the rings. Seriously, maybe he bought it for Justin, but then he realized how fabulous it was and even if he didn't need it anymore, why not just keep it anyway, right? Like I don't want that house, I think I love tiny houses, but I'm pretty sure if I already owned that house, I'd be like, this thing is fucking amazing and I could probably get a lot more for it if I fixed it up right? So I might as well...and then boom, I'm living there, cause it is BEAUTIFUL.

Sorry, that was all very random. Clearly I just finished watching 511.

Thoughts while rewatching 513 this evening:

1. I remember when the "Its only time" speech made me so sad. Now it makes me laugh so hard. Omg he is such a drama queen.

2. My only real complaint about the last episode is that aesthetically, I don't love the sex scene.

3. I wouldn't change the ending. Brian in the strongest space he's ever been mentally, is kind of perfect. He really can't dance, but that doesn't stop the last scene from being absolutely gorgeous.

Also, and I've had this thought many times, not just tonight: I'm certain that a few months after Melanie and Lindsay moved to Toronto and marriage became legal in Massachusetts, they had second thoughts about moving to Toronto. I'm certain that since they were already in Toronto, they decided to give it their all. I'm certain that roughly a year later, after realizing they could be much closer to everyone in western Massachusetts, and Melanie could practice law, and that their marriage would still be recognized, they moved to Massachusetts. And they built a beautiful life there.

PS I think I must have lost a lot of icons. I don't seem to have nearly as many as I remember having. Sadness.

Never enough

I think I'm having a mid-life crisis or something.

I seriously should be in bed. This is not 8 years ago and I do not have the stamina to stay up all night playing on IJ and then go to work like an adult in the morning anymore.

On a side note. I don't have nearly enough icons. How did I ever think I had enough??

PS Brian really was a giant schmoop.

Au revoir

Before I leave and probably don't return for another year until tomorrow....Bed of Roses I seriously have no fucking recollection of having written that. Or why I wrote it. Which just makes me feel really old. Oy.

And also, just read this The Good Chinese Daughter by Xie, which I had never read before I don't think. So good!

I always meant to move my stuff over to AO3, but it always just seemed like too big of a task...

Memory Lane

I've been taking a trip down memory lane today. Which took me back to what is probably my favorite story I ever wrote for QaF, Cut Me Open.

Which was inspired by what was definitely my favorite fandom challenge, Challenge in Two Parts.

I'm biased though, I produced two stories and 1 graphic for that challenge, and they are some of my favorite fan works I've done.

Don't know why, came back for a visit.

Actually B&J have been on the brain for the last weekish. They are still a go to happy place for me. My journal formatting has gone all wonky...and I don't remember how to fix it anymore. Sad.

So what fictional B&J world has my mind been playing in lately? One where Justin stayed with Ethan for much longer. Sad right!?! But don't worry too much, Brian is in his early 40s now, and he and Justin finally find their way back to each other again.

Hope anyone who might see this is well.

So much love and fond memories of all of this...
