butterfly: (Back Again -- Doctor/Rose)
One of the things that was so fun about Doctor/Rose was how into it the whole cast and crew were. It was a joyous tumble of "wow, they really love it as much as I do!" with hearts and flowers all over the place.

I also found that there's also a guilty thrill attached to finding out that one of the actors involved in a pairing that you dislike also dislikes the pairing (*waves at Paul Wesley and his boredom with Stefan/Elena*).

Of course, then there's also the not-so-fun feeling that comes when the cast and crew are really into a pairing and you aren't. See: RDJ's love for Tony/Pepper. He loves the pairing the way that the cast and crew of Doctor Who loved the Doctor and Rose but, for me, Pepper/Tony variously: does nothing for me as a romantic pairing but lots as a platonic one (Iron Man); is something that came as an unpleasant shock at the end (Iron Man 2); or is tolerable because Joss is writing it (Avengers).

So, various feelings. With shows/movies that I watch casually but don't get super into the fandom of, I generally never even know what the creators think. I just watch and it's fun (or, sometimes, it's not fun and I stop watching). But once I get invested in a show, it seems like I inevitably do find out what the cast/crew think about these various things and it does give me feelings. Even more so because I'm already emotionally invested.

Which brings me to Teen Wolf. And while Stiles and Derek are not a canon pairing at this point, they've been getting a lot of love and support from the cast and crew. The showrunner has said that the enthusiasm over Sterek has made him think about the possibility of putting it in the show (and, when someone asked, confirmed that he wasn't joking). This makes me get squishy Doctor/Rose feelings inside at the idea that a pairing that I like might have a chance at becoming not just canon but enthusiastically canon. Because there is a difference -- a big one -- between the general "Of course, I support the couples that I write/act/etc" behavior and the kind of support that leads to actors/whoever actively championing and pushing a specific pairing. It would be kinda neat if that happened with Teen Wolf and I do think that it's got a shot.

Do other people find themselves thinking about stuff this way too or is it just me?

* ETA: This is why one shouldn't post and then go to sleep. Misleading title/question! I wasn't trying to ask if it mattered in terms of whether or not something will be canon, just that if other people also had the same kinds of emotional reactions to enthusiastic support of ships that are canon from the creators/crew/cast, etc. Sorry about that!
butterfly: (Domina -- Atia)
So, both Suits and Doctor Who have a character named Donna with red hair who can fake-cry like a champ, is intimidating as hell when she wants to be, and is amazing at personal assistant/secretary-type work.

I have no idea what song could possibly be used for this. I just want a vid about them to exist.

They both have significant wink-moments, too! It's a match made in TV-heaven!
butterfly: (Janeway -- a rose for memory)
Woke up this morning with a deep and abiding wish to watch a series based on Ten II and Rose's adventures in Pete's universe. Ah, well.
butterfly: (Vampire Diaries - Nina/Ian)

spoilers for, I think, the most recent episode )

Things that I 'know' about Doctor Who for these past two seasons (note: these things may or may not be true as I have not seen any episodes):

possible spoilers through all current episodes )
butterfly: (Reporter -- Lois Lane)
Seen several places on my flist. And, wow, my current fandom obsession is... obvious.

Six ships you are into right now:
(defining 'into' as 'recently read fic about')

01. Damon/Elena (The Vampire Diaries)
02. Kirk/Spock (Star Trek)
03. Doctor/Rose (Doctor Who)
04. Kris/Adam (American Idol)
05. Caroline/Stefan (The Vampire Diaries)
06. Lois/Clark (Smallville - though I haven't found fic recently)

Three ships you liked but don't like anymore:
(yeah, they're all from the same show. Weird)

07. Elena/Stefan (The Vampire Diaries)
08. Jenna/Alaric (The Vampire Diaries)
09. Caroline/Matt (The Vampire Diaries)

Four ships you never liked:
(this one was actually really, really hard)

10. Sam/Jack (Stargate: SG-1)
11. Clark/Chloe (Smallville)
12. Elizabeth/Jack (Pirates of the Caribbean)
13. Hermione/Ron (Harry Potter)

Two ships you're curious about but don't actually ship:
(though I potentially could ship them, given the right factors)

14. Caroline/Tyler (The Vampire Diaries)
15. Katherine/Stefan (The Vampire Diaries)

questions )
butterfly: (Vampire Diaries - Dance)
My primary 'shipping tendencies tend toward 'friendship first', with a couple of exceptions. My current favorite 'ship is Damon/Elena from The Vampire Diaries.

I think that the couples of mine that most closely align to D/E are Fraser/Kowalski, Buffy/Xander, the version of Lois/Clark that is specific to Smallville, and Doctor/Rose (there's also Joey/Pacey, but I'm disqualifying it because it's from another Kevin Williamson show. But I do love them).

general spoilers for The Vampire Diaries, due South, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Smallville, and Doctor Who )

As seen... lots of places on my flist.

Post the names of all the files in your WIP folder, regardless of how non-descriptive or ridiculous.

I'm also including a snippet with each file name.

1 for The Vampire Diaries )

1 for Smallville )

23 for American Idol - Kris/Adam )

3 for Star Trek )

4 for Doctor Who )

Oh, wait, I found more (older ones).

1 for RENT )

2 for Star Wars )

1 for House )

Well, that was ridiculously long.

Found on my flist:
List fifteen of your favorite characters from different fandoms, and ask people to spot patterns in your choices, and if they're so inclined, to draw conclusions about you based on the patterns they've spotted.

I forced myself to only pick one per fandom and I'm still leaving out some people that I really love in some smaller fandoms.

Fifteen favorite characters in alphabetical order )
butterfly: (Quiet Love -- Maureen/Joanne)
I just realized that I'm totally the sort of person who gets offended and goes off and sulks. I mean, I knew that I used to do that (when I was a teenager, I was Dawn from BtVS) but I hadn't realized that I was still inclined to that sort of behavior when I felt hurt.


Well, it's boring to just overshare about one's personal faults, so I will now try to say something more interesting...

Yeah, I got nothing. My life is very full of work/school right now and I spend most of my off time squeeing over Kris Allen.

Oh, something that will be interesting to at least one person (she knows who she is ♥):

A picture of Kris Allen and Lance Bass! Talking to each other! )

I'm considering doing a 3D model of the inside of the (2005 era) TARDIS as my hard-surface model for my Maya class. Does anyone want me to share pictures of it after it's (hopefully) done?

I really wish that Kings had gotten a second season, because I really loved the first season, but the cliffhanger ending broke my heart so much that I can't even consider getting the dvd set.

I was randomly going through my photos and learned that Grace Park does, indeed, still take my breath away. So gorgeous.

Finally, the new song by Adam Lambert that just got released on (one of) his international CDs is so beautiful. It's called "Can't Let You Go". youtube under cut )
butterfly: (Human Forever - Doctor/Rose)
And he has one very clear point to make.

butterfly: (Joy  -- Martha)
I sometimes go to [livejournal.com profile] fandomsecrets to find out what people are freaking out about (and since it takes time to process the secrets, I don't ever get spoiled there, which is nice).

This secret made me crack up: spoilers for Torchwood Series 3 and the NEW Doctor Who trailer shown at Comic-Con; the spoilery one )
butterfly: (For You -- Doctor/Rose)
