I am basically just modifying the 30 day k-drama meme and some year end memes to suit my needs, because if I was to talk about every drama of 2012, it would take too damn long. And, really, there were only a select few that I actually stuck with all the way through. It seems that I was super picky and quite fickle this year. I'd start out loving a drama and then promptly drop it a few episodes later. So, let's see how this meme turns out:

The dramas that you stuck with for better or for worse until the finale did you part

Dream High 2
I Do, I Do
King of Dramas
Take Care of Us, Captain
Rooftop Prince
Ghost
Answer Me, 1997
The 3rd Hospital/The Third Ward
What's Up
Can Love Become Money

Dramas that you never quite finished

Brain
Big
Wild Romance
Gaksital
The Moon that Embraces the Sun
The King 2 Hearts
Arang and the Magistrate
History of the Salaryman
Faith
Full House Take 2
Shut Up, Flower Boy Band
Hero
Padam Padam
Fermentation Family
Color of Woman
Operation Proposal


Your Favorite Kdrama of 2012

King of Dramas, hands down. It hasn't finished yet, but I think it's pretty safe to say that nothing will beat my love for this one unless Anthony happens to randomly die in the end (I'm looking at you, Sign. And considering this drama is by the same writer, nothing's impossible). Anyway, this drama had the best acting of any other drama I watched in 2012, and while the writing isn't exactly flawless, it's damn good. They've managed to take some pretty boring subject matter and turn it into high stakes drama. It's just as if not more exciting than all of the action dramas that I've watched in the past, and the main characters are so beautifully fleshed out and complex and they actually get to grow as people, and I basically love everything about this drama.

Your Favorite Male Lead Character

Anthony Kim from King of Dramas, no contest. First, he's played by Kim Myung Min, so of course he's going to be awesome, and KMM has this way of adding layers to a character that aren't necessarily there in the writing, but the writing in this drama is so great that it's worthy of KMM's devotion to the character. It's all in the details with Anthony. He's seemingly cold and heartless and devoid of morals in the beginning, but you can always see his vulnerabilities. It's mostly KMM's performance there, because by all means I should have hated him in the first couple eps, but you can see hints of this hidden desperateness in him that makes him do the things that he does, and the scene in the first ep where he goes to the funeral of the motorcycle guy that died and is clearly brooding over the man's death showed that he does have plenty of humanity hidden behind his heartless facade. He does what needs to be done in order to achieve his goals, and if that means ruining somebody else, well... he'll do it without blinking. But he's perfectly aware of how horrible he is, and he doesn't really blame anybody but himself for his downfall, even after he learns that it was Oh Jin Wan who was responsible for it. He's aware that he's horrible, but he also believes that he has to be that way in order to survive, in order to not be trampled on, in order to be something in this dirty, despicable world. But then he meets Lee Go Eun and her presence in his life slowly changes his outlook on pretty much everything. He starts to learn that the world isn't so dirty and despicable when he's surrounded by people who are truly on his side and genuinely care about him. He starts to get back to the man that he was before he became Anthony, and it's just a really beautiful thing to watch.

I also want to mention Yoo Bang from History of a Salaryman. While nowhere near as complicated as Anthony, he was definitely just as hilarious, and I loved how even though he was a bumbling hero, he was also pretty intelligent and always managed to succeed.

Title: Gabe's Gift
Fandom: The Office
Pairing: Gabe/Ensemble
Rating: PG
Words: 632
Summary: If anyone ever bothered to ask Gabe about anything, they'd realize how awesome he is.
Author's Note: For [livejournal.com profile] glenvorian who requested "any fic featuring Gabe." Hope it brings you a smile! ♥

There’s not a lot that the office knows about Gabe. Is that his choice? Sure. Maybe. Not really. )
firthgal: (avatar - iroh zuko)
So, a few people on my f-list are doing the advent calender gift-fic thingie, and I kind of want to do one too, but on a smaller scale. So, er... how about this? I don't think any of you really want fic from me, but I'll totally write some if you do! But basically, you can request anything. Fic, fanvid, my delightful (so modest, I know) commentary on the subject of your choosing (you can even make me watch/read/listen to something new and expand my horizons!), picspam, vidspam, fanmix, fanart that looks like a five-year-old drew it, you can ask me random questions, you can ask for a vlog post where I play with all of my various action figures (you all remember the Buffy/Giles wedding incident, right?) or... just a plain old vlog post where I review something or sing off key or what have you, you can ask for a voice post... whatever your heart desires! Just pick a week and tell me what you want (because I really miss being fannish and creating things, guys. I miss it so much).

Week 1: [livejournal.com profile] glenvorian - any fic featuring Gabe from the office in it
Week 2: [livejournal.com profile] dollsome - something Mitchell/Cam related
Week 3: [livejournal.com profile] zombie_boogie - Something related to Avatar: The Last Airbender
Week 4: [livejournal.com profile] eleventhimpala - a Jeff/Annie & Britta/Troy fic in which Jeff and Britta switch bodies
Week 5: [livejournal.com profile] eleventhimpala - a Community fanvid set to "Close But No Cigar" by Weird Al, featuring Jeff, Annie, Britta and Slater

I have been so MIA these past two weeks that I doubt that any of you are still following me, but hey, it's worth a shot! (Christmas is killing me, btw. I am always so tired when I get home from work that I barely have the energy to even open my computer)

Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] zombie_boogie:

RELATE ME! When you think of me, what is the first thing that pops into your mind related to me in the following 10 catergories:



And I am going to follow zombie's lead and screen the comments so that no one's answers influence other people's answers. Basically I just want to see if I am as predictable as I think I am.

FANDOM TENNIS MATCH MEME:

Okay, here's how this is going to work. You comment with a fandom question. I answer it and then ask you a question that has some thematic relevance to the question you asked me.

MEME ME!

I've got two days off in a row this week, so MEME ME YOU BEAUTIFUL BITCHES! (basically I am finally posting all the memes that I've saved over the past few weeks. Pretty sure they all came from [livejournal.com profile] dollsome)

1.
Name a fandom, and I will tell you a) my three favorite romantic relationships, b) my three favorite non-romantic relationships, and c) one character combination (either shippy or non-shippy) I wish got more attention in canon.


2.
Name me a character! I will tell you:
* How I FEEEEEL about this character
* All the people I ship romantically with this character
* My non-romantic OTP for this character
* My unpopular opinion about this character
* One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon.


3.
Put a topic in the comments and I’ll try to fully explain my thoughts on it.


There you go, three memes to choose from. Or you can pick them all! Whatever suits your fancy. And while you are memeing me to my heart's content, check out my pretty new header. I CANNOT STOP STARING AT IT.
firthgal: (ksw - glasses)
I have been getting defriended left and right lately, so clearly I haven't been posting enough. Or else I am just REALLY BORING. It's probably the latter. So I will just make you all suffer through more of my inane rambling to see what kind of exodus ensues.

First things first, meme! It's that one where you comment if you want me to ask you five questions and then post the answers in your journal. [livejournal.com profile] dollsome asked me these five very hard-hitting questions:

Seriously, it is sad how long I took contemplating over some of these )



In other news, I spent most of my free time this week watching The Last Scandal. It was utterly hilarious and adorable and I am now in mad love with Jung Joon Ho. I thought he was super handsome in IRIS, but his character was such a douche that I had trouble loving him, but now? OMG, LOVE. LOVE LOVE LOVE. He was perfection in Last Scandal. And so was the lead actress. And I adored the second lead guy, too. Basically I loved everything about Last Scandal.

Okay, gotta go. Game of Thrones is about to start! I haven't read the books, but I feel like I have since so much of my f-list has been talking about them lately.

Pfft.

Bunny is still in the lead, though. Because, in her immortal words, she rules.
firthgal: (ksw - glasses)
안녕하세! 저예요, Firthgal! Sweet. Now if only I knew how to say/spell more than "Hello! It's me, Firthgal!" that would be awesome. But anyway, I never knew before tonight that I could get my keyboard to type in other alphabets. I had always wondered how my sis-in-law managed to type in Cantonese letters while she was IMing her buddies from Hong Kong.

Anywhoozle, I watched Shinjuku Incident today, which was Jackie Chan trying his hand at dramatic acting, and, I actually think that he did pretty darn well. I don't think he'll be winning an Oscar anytime soon, but, you know, it was kind of amazing compared to his usual performances. But, yeah, I much prefer goofy, lovable, fits into small spaces, amazing fight sequences Jackie Chan to Dramatic Actor Jackie Chan. This movie had a lot of body parts being cut off and blood squirting everywhere and really long dialog scenes and tragic characters of tragic tragicness, and that's just not what I want from a Jackie Chan film. But I think he's awesome for spreading his wings and I really don't blame him for wanting to try something new. And he's still making crazy adorable films like The Spy Next Door, so it's all good.

In other news, I've just found a film called Break Out, which has both Kim Seung Woo and Cha Seung Won, and they are both being insane, and I think I'm going to love it. It's like it was tailor-made for both me and [livejournal.com profile] piecesofalice. Although every KSW film ever has just left me scratching my head and wondering why the hell I sat through the whole movie, so... we'll see.

I think I've given up on watching Tamra The Island all the way through. While I love Park Kyu, I find that the further into the drama I get, the more I can't stand Beo Jin. She is so damn whiny and annoying and OMG, WHY DOES EVERY BOY EVER FALL IN LOVE WITH HER? WHAT IS HER APPEAL? Ugh. Ugh ugh ugh. I liked her in the beginning but have never quite gotten to the point where I buy her cuteness, and now the drama has completely lost me there. Whiny and waiting for a dude to save her ALL THE TIME is not cute. What the freak happened? In the beginning she was the one saving people. Now suddenly she needs Park Kyu for every little thing that happens to her? Blah. If she didn't bug me so much, I would probably have finished this drama by now, especially since I'm shipping William/Yan so very hard. Seriously, Yan is more hot and bothered by the William/Beo Jin relationship than Park Kyu is. And he's so focused on keeping William safe! He refuses to leave without him! It's clearly love. And I'll just make up my own ending for them, because I really cannot sit through anymore of Beo Jin's scenes.

And because it's been awhile:

Who comments the most on this journal? )

I find it kind of hilarious that [livejournal.com profile] 15lbpurebunny is still the top commenter (after me) and she hasn't even been on LJ in like 2 years. Good lord, woman, we had way too many conversations about Damian Lewis's nipples!

Oh oh oh! And since I can now type in Korean, I feel the need to type out the names of my Korean lovers. This will possibly take me all night to figure out:

I am totally squandering away my day off. I have done nothing today. Nothing! My attention span is too short today to watch k-dramas and/or movies, apparently, so, MEME IT IS.

Meme #1
Pick any character from a fandom of mine and I'll answer the following questions:

1) What is your opinion of this character? If you like, explain why you like him/her.
2) Is he/she important to the general plot?
3) Can you relate to this character at all? Does he/she grip you emotionally?
4) How much do you like the fandom that this character comes from?
5) Do you ship this character with any other character? Or, are you particularly intrigued by his/her relationship with any other character(s)? (romance-wise or platonic)
6) Is there anything about the character you would change?
7) If you were in the fandom with this character or knew this character in real life, how would you see yourself interacting with him/her? Would you get along well? Fall in love with him/her? Dislike? Have a friendly rivalry?

9) Would you hype up this character (if you like) or warn about this character (if you dislike) to someone new to fandom?
10) Is this character popular with the fanbase?


Meme #2
Pick a fandom and I'll tell you my...

- 3 favorite relationships
- 3 favorite characters
- 3 favorite moments
- 3 reasons I like/love that fandom


Last week I watched a bunch of Park Shin Yang films. Dude makes me cry in every single one. He obviously hates happy endings or something. Seriously though, he was amazing in The Letter, but good god did it make me bawl. It was just kind of cruel to set up this beautiful, happy marriage and be such a lighthearted, sweet movie and then BAM! What you've been waiting for finally happens, and it breaks your heart even though it's what the summary told you the movie was about. And then I watched A Promise, where he got to be both super adorable and totally badass, and of course the ending was tragic, because it's about a gangster falling in love with a doctor, but, you know, it wasn't nearly as tragic as The Letter, so, yay? The movie itself was pretty awesome. I also watched White Valentine, which was okay, but not great. I feel like that would have been better as a drama than as a movie, but I guess I think that about most romantic Korean films. Or maybe I was hoping it'd be more of a romcom? I don't know, but at least the ending wasn't sad. And somehow I ended up watching The Harmonium in My Memory, which doesn't contain Park Shin Yang (the star was a very young Lee Byung Hun), but it was about a teacher/student romance (sort of) and I really, really enjoyed it.

But anyway, my appreciation of Park Shin Yang has gotten stronger after seeing a few of his films. There's another one that I plan on watching soon where he plays twins, one's a police officer and one's a gangster, and I'm really looking forward to that one. I've loved PSY in his various dramas, but dudes, now I see why he's more loved for his film roles than his drama roles. He's awesome. And I really, really love him as a badass mobster. ♥

DAY OFF TOMORROW, WOOHOO! Uuuuugh, I am so tired. This was a busy (and mostly bad) week. I am so happy that it's finally over. Of course, this next work week has a lot of late nights, so... not happy about that. UGH. Work work work and more work )

So, now I'm going to do some memes, all stolen from [livejournal.com profile] dollsome, because she always finds the fun ones.

#1
MAKEOUT MEME: Pick a pairing from any fandom/rpf, and come up with a location and/or situation, and I will write you commentfic about the kiss that happened in that context.

#2
Ask me about a pairing I have written (or haven't and you think I should write) and I will give you five facts about them or a ficlet or a song that is CLEARLY THEIR SONG or what they order from the Chinese place down the street, etc, etc.

#3

I am in this weird mood to write drabbles today. I have no idea why. So, prompt me! Give me any pairing or character from any of my fandoms along with some kind of prompt, and I will attempt to write you a drabble in the comments! I'm not saying that it's going to be any good, though...

WHUT?

Apparently there is a Korean remake of A Better Tomorrow:



And Chow Yun-Fat's role is played by the lead actor from My Princess. WHAT IS THIS CRAZINESS? I need to see this. IMMEDIATELY. Why why why are there no English subs for this? I'm interested to see the story with a slightly better production value, and the main dude seems way more badass than the main dude in the original. But nobody can beat Chow Yun-Fat (even if the dude playing his role is super hot). CYF was just a supporting character but he made the role so iconic that he's all anybody really remembers from the original, so I am already prepared to be disappointed with the remake on that account. Still though, I NEED TO SEE THIS FILM.

Also, MEME! Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] dollsome:

Leave me the name of a character from one fandom, and I'll tell you who I could ship them with from another fandom.

Let's see if I can get some answered before I go to work. If not, then I will giddily answer them when I get home tonight (after Modern Family, of course).

Meme! Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] jesshelga:

favorite pairing: The epitome of all teacher/student ships - Buffy/Giles, BtVS. Sure, it was purely a subtext ship, but man was it some damn good subtext. So many repressed feelings and confusion happening in this ship, but despite that, they really understood each other, even if they weren't all that great at expressing their feelings for each other (or even labeling their feelings for each other). They existed for each other, because of each other, and I just can't resist that. Now, because this was a show mainly aimed at teenage girls, naturally Buffy fell in love with the pretty vampires instead of her much older teacher, but it really can't be denied that her strongest emotional bond was with Giles. What she had with Angel was epic, but not necessary to her survival (and, really, mostly based on hormones). What she had with Spike was screwed up and a way of dealing with what happened to her, but it lacked emotion (from her), and I am still convinced that it only happened because Giles left her. As for Giles, he was her heart, her light, her safehouse. Had BtVS been a Korean drama, it so would have been a romance between Giles and Buffy.

Speaking of Korean dramas, Eun Byul/Teacher Jang from I am Sam will always hold a special place in my heart, as will Yun Bok/Hong Do from The Painter of the Wind. Two male teacher/female student ships that actually got to be realized (but sadly never quite consummated, unless you count hand holding as consummation, which in these two dramas it sort of was).

favorite irl pairing: John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo.



ALWAYS. ♥ I know this is bad of me, but I hate hate HATE the fact that they are now both doing teleseryes without each other. WHAT IS THAT NONSENSE? But, okay, I totally want to see the one with John Lloyd, because he is playing a VAMPIRE. I have to see that craziness.

favorite together-in-real-life pairing: Bill and Sookie! Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin!



LOOK AT HER FIDDLING WITH HIS BUTTON! LOOK AT HER GIGGLING WHEN HE SAID "WE'VE BEEN DOING IT A LONG TIME"! OMG, they are so freaking adorable, I love them.

favorite book pairing: William Monk/Hester Latterly from the Inspector Monk series by Anne Perry. I check out those books from the library at least once a year just to relive their glorious bickering and begrudging respect/love for each other.

favorite movie pairing: Probably Henry Higgins/Eliza Doolittle from My Fair Lady. I'm also quite fond of Anna/King from Anna and the King. And Jack/Elizabeth from PoTC.

favorite tv-show pairing: Currently it is Jeff/Annie from Community (but, as you can see from my first answer, the mainstay here is Buffy/Giles from BtVS)

favorite endgame pairing: Alan/Denny from Boston Legal. THEIR BROMANCE WAS EPIC. I will never get over the fact that they actually got married. I guess I should also qualify Tony/Angela from Who's the Boss, even though the show totally screwed them over in the later seasons. Also, Daniel/Betty from Ugly Betty, because I shipped the heck out of those two (sadly the romance didn't happen in the way I wanted it to, but at least they sort of ended up together in the end).

favorite non-endgame pairing: Damon/Elena from Vampire Diaries? Even though I'm not positive about where the show is heading with these two, I'm fairly certain that they aren't the endgame ship, but I love the crap out of them anyway. Also, there was a brief time when I adored House/Cameron with all of my heart and soul, even though I knew that they could never, ever work out. Ever.

favorite non-canon pairing: Oh, gosh, so many! Uther/Morgana from Merlin, Lassiter/Juliet from Psych, Monk/Sharona from Monk, Spencer/Sam from iCarly, Jack/Liz from 30 Rock, BUFFY/GILES.

favorite crack-ship: Kelly/Andy from The Office, forever and always. Also, Cromartie/Ellison from Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (which is far more applicable to the crack ship title).

pairing with the hottest sex: Bill/Sookie, True Blood. See: Sex scene at the end of 3x08/beginning of 3x09. Too hot even for YouTube, apparently.

pairing with the hottest make-outs: JEFF AND ANNIE, COMMUNITY

pairing with the hottest chemistry: Betty/Armando from the Yo Soy Betty la Fea. Their chemistry may not have started out hot, but good lord did they leave me breathless by the end.

pairing that you recently got into: Um... the OTPs in all of the countless K-dramas that I watch

pairing that the actors got you to ship: Jeff and Annie, Community. I guess? Their chemistry is so wonderful that I couldn't resist it, but even with them it's more about how well the characters compliment each other.

pairing that you ship, but wouldn’t be upset if they weren’t endgame: Damon/Elena, Vampire Diaries. I see Damon as such a tragic figure that it would probably be weird if he actually got the girl. And I just don't see Elena ever being able to get over her love for Stefan.

pairing with the best marriage: Marshall/Lily, HIMYM. I WANT THEIR LOVE.

pairing with the best story-line: At this point in time I am going to say Damon/Elena, because I am thoroughly enjoying their tenuous friendship littered with romantic ~feelings that is bound to end tragically for all parties involved.

pairing with the best friends to couple scenario: Jack/Liz, Lassiter/Juliet, Jeff/Annie... pretty much the majority of my ships.

In other news, I have now seen Megamind, and it was hilarious. And adorable. The story kind of lost direction here and there, but I think I was so invested in the character of Megamind that I didn't even care.

Also, I don't think that I ever mentioned that I saw the new Harry Potter film the day it came out. The world was trying to conspire against me with traffic jams and accidents and the longest red lights in the history of anything, but by golly, I got to that damn cinema! It took me an hour and a half, but I did it. Missed the showing that I was going for, but luckily it was playing in all the theaters, so, I didn't have to wait long for another showing. I enjoyed the film, but I was wicked tired, therefore I had trouble staying awake. But I enjoyed the film much more than I did the book. I loved how dark they went with this one. Heck, some parts had me nearly jumping out of my seat. The films have come quite a long way since the first one. Also, I find it perplexing how I so fiercely ship Ron/Hermione in the books, but in the movies I always find myself wanting Harry and Hermione to end up together. Craziness.

favorite non-endgame pairing: Damon/Elena from Vampire Diaries? Even though I'm not positive about where the show is heading with these two, I'm fairly certain that they aren't the endgame ship, but I love the crap out of them anyway. Also, there was a brief time when I adored House/Cameron with all of my heart and soul, even though I knew that they could never, ever work out. Ever.

favorite non-canon pairing: Oh, gosh, so many! Uther/Morgana from Merlin, Lassiter/Juliet from Psych, Monk/Sharona from Monk, Spencer/Sam from iCarly, Jack/Liz from 30 Rock, BUFFY/GILES.

favorite crack-ship: Kelly/Andy from The Office, forever and always. Also, Cromartie/Ellison from Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (which is far more applicable to the crack ship title).

pairing with the hottest sex: Bill/Sookie, True Blood. See: Sex scene at the end of 3x08/beginning of 3x09. Too hot even for YouTube, apparently.

pairing with the hottest make-outs: JEFF AND ANNIE, COMMUNITY

pairing with the hottest chemistry: Betty/Armando from the Yo Soy Betty la Fea. Their chemistry may not have started out hot, but good lord did they leave me breathless by the end.

pairing that you recently got into: Um... the OTPs in all of the countless K-dramas that I watch

pairing that the actors got you to ship: Jeff and Annie, Community. I guess? Their chemistry is so wonderful that I couldn't resist it, but even with them it's more about how well the characters compliment each other.

pairing that you ship, but wouldn’t be upset if they weren’t endgame: Damon/Elena, Vampire Diaries. I see Damon as such a tragic figure that it would probably be weird if he actually got the girl. And I just don't see Elena ever being able to get over her love for Stefan.

pairing with the best marriage: Marshall/Lily, HIMYM. I WANT THEIR LOVE.

pairing with the best story-line: At this point in time I am going to say Damon/Elena, because I am thoroughly enjoying their tenuous friendship littered with romantic ~feelings that is bound to end tragically for all parties involved.

pairing with the best friends to couple scenario: Jack/Liz, Lassiter/Juliet, Jeff/Annie... pretty much the majority of my ships.

In other news, I have now seen Megamind, and it was hilarious. And adorable. The story kind of lost direction here and there, but I think I was so invested in the character of Megamind that I didn't even care.

Also, I don't think that I ever mentioned that I saw the new Harry Potter film the day it came out. The world was trying to conspire against me with traffic jams and accidents and the longest red lights in the history of anything, but by golly, I got to that damn cinema! It took me an hour and a half, but I did it. Missed the showing that I was going for, but luckily it was playing in all the theaters, so, I didn't have to wait long for another showing. I enjoyed the film, but I was wicked tired, therefore I had trouble staying awake. But I enjoyed the film much more than I did the book. I loved how dark they went with this one. Heck, some parts had me nearly jumping out of my seat. The films have come quite a long way since the first one. Also, I find it perplexing how I so fiercely ship Ron/Hermione in the books, but in the movies I always find myself wanting Harry and Hermione to end up together. Craziness.

MEME!

Also, I just finished watching The Karate Kid (the reboot with Jackie Chan), and OMG was it fabulous. So shockingly well done. I cried through a lot of it (which is weird, since I don't think my body is currently being hormonal, but I'm not quite sure. Maybe I am just overly sensitive when it comes to stories about cute little kids). Anyhow, it was awesome. It kept the spirit of the original films, and gave it this lovely, innocent spin that was so beautiful to watch (particularly the friendship between Dre and Mr. Han. The scene where Mr. Han breaks down crying, oh, my heart. Who knew that Jackie could act??? I think his performance impressed me more than anyone).

In honor of All Hallow's Eve, I'm inviting trick-or-treaters to my 'door'. Comment "trick-or-treat" to this post and...well, you know the drill. Treats can be anything that strikes my fancy (pics of fave actors or pairings, one sentence fics, graphics, a few words about why I'm glad to have you on my flist, etc. etc.). The more "houses" to visit the more fun it'll be, so go ahead, open your journal and help spread the fun!


Also, MOST BEAUTIFUL FANVID EVER:



*gets goosebumps*

In other news, today something possessed me to finally look up what the heck The Human Centipede was, and... oh god, this is why the phrase "curiosity killed the cat" exists. The worst part is that I started thinking about it while I was eating my dinner and I was thisclose to barfing it back up. OMG, WHY DO PEOPLE MAKE MOVIES LIKE THAT? Ugh, my stomach is starting to turn just thinking about it.

Also, thank you to all who voted in that poll! Wow, my journal hasn't been that hopping in a long time. And, just so you know, I watched the first ep of Sherlock while waiting for Trick or Treaters, and I freaking adored it.
