Cordelia excited

crack comment ficathon - graphics help?

I have been wanting a Buffyverse/Angelverse crackficathon for months, but it just occurred to me a few days ago that a comment ficathon is probably much more everyone's speed right now. So I'm going to do it! Here in a day or two, probably. Very easy-going, and I'll keep a masterlist, being as that is The Thing That I Do.

So, I was wondering if someone graphically-minded would be willing to make me up a banner or two. One for BtVS and one for Ats seems like a good idea. Help?

ETA: Graphics help found! I should have the ficathon post up sometime today (Wednesday).

Twin Peaks - still watching

I'm through the first couple eps of S2 now. As I was telling [personal profile] lutamira, this show all exists in this one huge tapestry in my head; I can't break it into constituent parts yet. About all I can do right now is flail in its general direction and say, "You guys, this show!"

That said, definitely the character I'm most engaged with presently is Audrey Horne. One one hand, she's a brat, and I don't mean that in a good way. From the moment we meet her she's causing chaos just because she can. She's spectacularly self-centered, and there's just no way I can spin that positively.

But on the other hand, she's definitely charismatic, and I've been in more suspense about her plight at One Eyed Jack's than I have about any of the other storylines. I also appreciate that she does seem to have some sincerity tucked away for special occasions, and that she's not equally a brat to everyone. She and Donna seem to get on fine, for example. And I like that her storyline has only a minor romantic component, that her story is not yet another story of high school drama and romance (as opposed to Donna, even).

So I do want to like her, and yet... such a brat.

longer (SPN) letter later

We are marathoning S5 at this point, so I'm way behind in my reviews, but:

* I'm pretty sure that 99 Problems is, from an objective and technical standpoint, the worst episode since at least S3. My heavens, the pacing, you guys. When the conflict looked like it'd about burned itself out, I literally could not believe my eyes when VLC told me I was only twenty minutes in. I thought it'd screwed up reading the file or something.

* In the middle of Point of No Return I wanted very much to conk Dean over the head with a beer bottle. I am happy to report that by the end, I didn't want to anymore. In fact, given the title how the ep started, the ending was much much less of a downer than I was expecting. I feel almost hopeful! Yay that.
