Still not in much of a words-generating brainspace, so I give you LJ confetti in lieu of meaty TV meta or anything else of much substance. :-)

There is a new Avengers trailer. It looks amazing.

I have a cold. It is not severe, but annoying, and I want it to go away quickly, as I am expecting to have a nephew sometime tomorrow (yay!!), and want to see him (and see ShinyHappyNiece being big sister) without bringing the germs. :-P

Chicago Comic Con, the Flashback Weekend horror convention, and VividCon are once again all the same weekend. *facepalm* The first will probably win out, despite a sharp price increase, by virtue of a guest list that will still be jawdropping after the inevitable attrition. Juliet Landau alone is pretty much the deciding factor there. :-)

Without getting spoilery about Being Human (Barry edition), Annie is proving to be everything I said in my season-premiere post she would need to be, and Hal is growing on me.

Without getting spoilery about Being Human (Boston edition), this season is leaps and bounds stronger (as I hoped would happen once they finished the adapted storylines and became entirely their own entity) and I've found myself actually invested. I've also had the minor epiphany that Aidan has more personality traits akin to Annie than to Mitchell, and Sally vice-versa.

I have thinky-thoughts (which I keep intending to post about in more depth) about this, re: the interesting choice to make one of the guys the caretaker/nurturer, and how fandom-at-large tends to reject Sally as unlikable (particularly, though not always, in contrast to Annie), which is not a new thought, but I've only just processed the extent to which the reasons given are some of the exact same traits and behaviors that are excused and woobified in Mitchell.

That said, 85% of what has grabbed my attention and isn't letting go is Nora. They've taken me completely by surprise in what they've written for her, and Kristen Hager is knocking it out of the park and well on the way to the next county.

I have done zero writing lately. This should change, and hopefully will now that my shooting schedule is going to be a little more spread out for a while. Tonight, however, I am going to do crafty things and finish watching Survivors.

brightknightie directed me to your posts when I recently started watching the UK version of Being Human (after having already seen the first three seasons of the US version). I'm not going to go through and comment on all of them, but I wanted to say that I enjoyed your thoughts and analysis. So thank you!

And in this post, I particularly liked your insight that Aidan has taken over some of Annie's role and traits, while Sally's personality lines up with Mitchell's in some respcts. That was very helpful for me in clarifying some vague thoughts I had while attempting to write Sally.

You're welcome, and thank you for commenting!

I'll look forward to what you're writing for Sally! I really do love her to bits. (Not that I've read any BHUS fic, or much fic in general the last couple years, but I'll still look forward to it. *g*) Which -- just like with Mitchell -- makes me want to shake her all the harder when she makes those shortsighted panic-driven choices...

It was really more of a Nora story--or a Nora & Sally friendship story--written for rarewomen. I'm not sure it's my best work--it was my first time writing in Being Human--but it's up already. (The section that was clarified for me actually ended up getting cut from the final version, but I appreciate the insight anyway.) :)
