This is either the prologue-y first section of the larger fic I'm working on, or it's getting cut from the fic and is just a standalone snippet thing. Keep going back and forth.

Emails that I have sent to rchan (so far) today regarding my current Captain America Steve/Sam situation:

1. "You know, these might be the first two characters I've ever shipped where I'm all 'YES, you SHOULD write about them getting married and having babies. YES, PLEASE. I DO WANT TO READ ABOUT THAT A THOUSAND TIMES (but no mpreg)'"

2. "But also, my obsession is not fading with time over here. IT'S GETTING WORSE. THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A QUICK DIP MY TOES IN THE FANDOM WRITE FIC AND THEN LEAVE AND INSTEAD I"M OVER HERE ALL !!!!!!11!!!!1!!! AND IT IS SCARY."

3. "I LIKE MY FANNISH SHIPPER FEELINGS TO BE AT A LOW-GRADE SIMMER. THIS IS NOT A LOW-GRADE SIMMER RIGHT NOW. LOOK AT ALL THE CAPS I'M USING. STOP LAUGHING AT ME. THIS ISN'T FUNNY. I HATE EVERYTHING."

Seriously though. How did this happen?

I didn't really think I had anything to say about this week's episode of Ripper Street, but then I read this article and it turned out I had things to say after all. So: Ripper Street 2x02Collapse )

Based on his few short moments in the trailer, I'm now very much looking forward to Damien Molony on Ripper Street. I mean, I was looking forward to it anyway because I watched the first series a few weeks back and enjoyed it quite a bit overall and I would keep watching regardless, but Damien Molony in a confessional. Yes, please.



Also, finally a promo shot of him for this show that I actually like (though I think Adam Rothenberg still wins the lineup for me with that head tilt).

Also also, the trailer leads me to believe, based on the similar reaction shots from both Jackson and Damien Molony's character (what is his name? Flight? Flight.) that they're drawing parallels between the two and connecting them both to Drake's statement regarding a bad man going good and um, yes. I would be totally on board with the idea of another miniature (sorry Damien, you're kinda short for this show) Irish version of Jackson.

(Also also also, I did not realize that Adam Rothenberg had done a whole bunch of theatre before apparently heading to the UK for this show. I just googled him and found pictures of him with Santino Fontana, Uzo Aduba, Lily Rabe, and Matthew Maher [who I mostly only ever remember because he has a bit of a speech impediment...and also he randomly happened to be in the last three off-broadway plays I've gone to see with my friend D] doing various theatre-y things. I approve.)

Drafty Being Human fic snippetCollapse )

I have no idea where I'm going to end up going with this. I'm thinking ... I think this story might be Alex/Lady Catherine, which - well, we'll see. Right now I'm going back and forth between liking the start of it and thinking it's way too close to how things started for McNair. I'm not sure that matters though, considering that it'll end differently, especially if I go the Alex/Lady Catherine route (which I know sounds like time-traveling crack, and it is, but it might work!). Or, hm, even if I do attempt Alex/Lady Catherine, I might end up scrapping this entirely and going a bit more straight forward with the whole thing, just Alex's POV with none of these flashbacks. Decisions!

I'm so confused as to who can smell what on Being Human.

Can ghosts smell at all? Annie doesn't seem to have any issues hanging out with Sasha, which suggests that they can't (and I think that would make sense), but then Kirby does that thing where he just kinda inhales that shot while talking to Hal as though he's smelling it in 4x04 and Alex makes that comment about Hal's breath in 4x07.

And then there are werewolves and vampires. Herrick can smell human blood on a different floor of the house. Hal can smell that Allison is a werewolf while he's inside the cafe and she's outside and across the street. Tom, on the other hand, doesn't seem to pick up on the whole werewolf thing and questions if she's a vampire at first. Mitchell realizes that Tom's in the house in 3x04 based on smell (though it takes him a while, really) but in 3x03, George can smell Sasha rotting when she's still outside, and Mitchell's surprised by this, all "What? From here?" which suggests that he can't smell her.

Do werewolves have a heightened sense of smell except when it comes to vampires and their own kind? Tom doesn't seem to realize that Dewy is a vampire until he sees the bite marks on his neck in 4x01, but then he knows that Hal's a vampire right away in 4x02. That might be because Hal looks out of date and out of place and have nothing to do with smell at all, though.

Do vampires only have a heightened sense of smell when it comes to blood specifically? Or blood and, perhaps, werewolves? ...though Lauren had to get pretty freakin' close before she realized George was a werewolf. She was also pretty new to the whole thing. And Sasha's pretty gross and bloody, though I guess Mitchell might not think that's notable, because he can see the blood, so of course he can smell that aspect of the situation. On the other hand, he's surprised a moment later when Annie says that Sasha has a body, so who knows.

Really, I mostly care about the ghost thing right now, as I have a section in the fic I'm working on where Annie mentions not being able to smell, and I'm wondering if that's actually the case or if I should remove it/change it. Hm.

I spent the weekend in Vermont and Montreal and I'll probably post about that a bit in the next few days, but first some -

I end up making the most exaggerated confused frowning faces at my computer screen whenever I stumble upon people's human!Hal/Alex post-series headcanon posts on Tumblr. It's all cute dates and wedding nights and babies. Babies!

And then after I'm done making confused frowning faces, I'm left sort of wanting to write loads of fic in which Hal/Alex crash and burn spectacularly even in scenarios where they actually get to stay human (especially in scenarios where they stay human).

That's maybe mean, right? ...but it might also be fun? And probably closer to what would actually happen. (And really if I was going to write fic centered on Hal/Alex that's what it would end up being anyway, so it's not like I'm skewing my own headcanon just to be a jerk. And I mean, I'd probably at least let them have a bunch of sex before they go down in flames.)

I randomly decided to watch the first episode of the US version of Being Human because I was bored and it's on Netflix and...I kind of enjoyed it? Not all of it, but definitely more than I expected that I would.

BH US talkCollapse )
