So... I've started using my Tumblr. A little bit. Still don't like the format, but it's all I've got since LJ refuses to have a fandom revival. *siiiiiigh* I hate that it's nearly impossible to converse with people. You just scroll and heart things and then talk to yourself on your own blog. I guess it's just pure blogging that I don't like. I miss having back and forths with people. But, Tumblr is good for pretty pics/graphics/vids and spoilers. But I feel so exposed every time I post something. Can't control who sees it and who doesn't. But anyway, if you're interested, my fandom blatherings will probably be posted there from now on (except for the more detailed stuff, which will probably still be posted here):

http://firthgal.tumblr.com/

My page is ugly because I have no idea how to change the settings, but at least you can read it (most Tumblr blogs have text that is so incredibly tiny that even my text zoom can't make it readable).

Anyway, I am still obsessing over Dexter, and I am so freaking happy that the latest crop of episodes have inspired fandom to make so many incredible vids:



Auuuuuuuuugh, augh augh augh, so much perfection! The voice overs during the instrumental bit in the last couple minutes are especially soul-wrenching, because OMG the parallels. So many parallels between them that I was vaguely aware of but now are so clear to me. I mean, sometimes Dexter says stuff and I'm like, "Didn't Deb say that to him a couple seasons back?" but I'm not quite sure and I kind of just forget about it, but then this vid confirms it all and it makes me go, "Wow, Dexter really was listening to her. Dexter really does love her." Not that I think he will ever romantically love her (he just can't move her out of the "sister" box that he has her in in his brain), but what he feels for her is stronger than anything he's ever felt about anybody, including Lumen and Hannah (and Rita. I hate that Rita never even registers in Dexter's brain when he talks about love, because the show spent years on him developing genuine feelings for her, but she's basically out of sight out of mind, meaning that all she ever was to him was a cover, which I don't believe). ANYWAY, Deb and Dex are dysfunctional and they are both complete messes but they will always be drawn together no matter what comes between them. Deb freaking tried to kill him and he was only mad for like half a day and then he melted when she said, "I can't imagine my life without you in it." GOD, I LOVE THEM.

Another vid of perfection that basically illustrates everything I've just said:



And a slightly fluffy one, kind of, maybe, not really, but it's pretty:



Also, I saw an interview clip on YouTube where Jennifer Carpenter said that she has always played Deb as having a crush on Dexter but not knowing what it was and that it made sense for the character because she has a level of intimacy with Dexter that she's never been able to achieve with any other man. And, to be honest, I've always felt like Deb was a little too into Dexter, but I never really shipped them until maybe season 5. She had just lost Lundy, who she thought was the love of her life, and he had just lost Rita and Deb was clinging onto Dexter just a little too hard and being really territorial over him and I kind of felt the shipping feelings, but I just assumed that she was projecting her own pain onto Dexter and getting offended over his non-feelings about Rita's death, but then season 6 happened. And I became obsessed, because OMG it just makes so much sense for the character and it's so heartbreaking because Dexter just can't give her what she's looking for and she's freaking out about being in love with her brother, and then in season 7 she has to learn to love him for everything that he is and not everything that she wants him to be, and then in season 8 she's dealing with self-loathing and hating him for doing this to her and hating that she still loves him to death despite everything. Guh. GUH! I love them.

I have done nothing (aside from work) but watch Dexter/Deb vids for the past two days. WHAT IS MY LIFE? Oooooh, it feels so good to finally have a fandom again! I still despise Tumblr, so my fandom experience is limited, but I'm trying. Oh, am I trying! I miss LJ fandom culture so damn much. *cries* But anyway, I am so very happy to finally be passionate about a fandom again. I think the last time I was this fascinated by a ship was... Uther/Morgana? So, that was awhile ago. IDEK when Dex/Deb captured my heart so thoroughly, but I suspect that I was even shipping them without realizing it back in season 5 (I hated Dexter/Lumen with a passion. I used the excuse that it was because I was bitter over Rita's death. Pret-ty sure it was because Deb and Dexter were being all parenty with Harrison and Deb was all "Blech" towards Lumen and I was totally shipping Deb/Dex and feeling wrong about it). But then, well, Deb's therapist suggested that she might be in love with Dexter and everything about her entire character trajectory just made sense. And their love is so painfully beautiful and confusing. And I love that through the entire show it has always been Deb struggling to hold onto Dexter, but now it's the other way around and we are finally seeing the depth of Dexter's love for her. He's never really understood what he felt for Deb, but his little tryst with that Hannah chick where he supposedly fell in love for the first time ever, OMG (what about Rita, you douche?!) made him at least recognize the feeling of love, and he chose Deb over her without even thinking about it, so maybe, juuuuuuust maybe he'll realize that he legit loves Deb more than anything in the world. He even put Harrison in danger because he was so off the handle about Deb in the first ep of season 8. Guh, I just want them to find each other again and accept each other and love each other for all that they are and I want them to do this soon because this is the last season and I can't have them being at odds with each other through all 12 eps. But... yeah, they probably won't make up until one (or both) of them is on the brink of death in the very last episode. *sigh* But here, have some pretty vids:



SO FLIPPIN' BEAUTIFUL.

More beauty under the cut )

Augh, too much angst. Here's some beautiful, beautiful fluff:

The reason why I am addicted to Faith:



HOW ARE THEY SO BEAUTIFULLY TRAGIC? Just admit your feelings for each other, you numskulls. I LOVE THEM. But they are idiots. BUT I LOVE THEM. At least the queen was about to reveal her heart before she just happened to be interrupted. And the king is being a little more open about needing her by his side (instead of resenting her). And it kills me when he is worried sick about her and she so fully believes that he feels nothing for her that she can't even imagine him worrying about her, so she's careless with her life because she thinks he's careless with her life. BUT HE'S NOT. HE LOOOOOOVES HER. But she is too determined to not care about his not caring about her that she can't see that he does care about her, and clearly she does care about his not caring. If any of that makes sense. I LOVE THEM.

In other news, I somehow managed to get 4 days off of work in a row without even asking (today's my last day off, sadly), and I've basically done nothing but watch Faith and a drama called Can Love Become Money. I inhaled Can Love Become Money in two days. Actually, one and a half. It hit a good number of my shipping buttons, and I just really adored the main character (Ma In Tak). He was basically a softer/younger version of Kang Mae from Beethoven Virus (except his isolation from people actually made sense, whereas Kang Mae's did not). But anyway, he had that particular way of enunciating his words that just seems to win me over no matter who's doing it. And, well, it helped that he was played by Yoen Jung Hoon (dude from Vampire Prosecutor), who (in this drama, anyway) looks like a much more dreamier version of Park Yoochun. But anyway, I am a sucker for the straight-talking jackass of a hero who is actually just terribly awkward with people because he's scared of forming bonds with them, and the persistent heroine who accidentally teaches him what it feels like to let people in. The romance was also boss/assistant, which you know is probably my favorite trope of all tropes. The drama was problematic, definitely, but... I didn't care? It was just so laugh out loud funny most of the time, and the leads played off of each other really well. The second leads were not my cup of tea, but in the end I found myself caring for them simply because In Tak did. There was a twist at the end that I so did not see coming, and usually I see the twists from a mile away with k-dramas. The show took its time to develop the romance, which I really appreciated, but at the same time I was pulling my hair out because everyone else was having more romantic scenes than they were, but it just made the payoff all the more delicious. And In Tak's innocence and confusion on how to progress their relationship into a romantic one was just so damn endearing. And I freaking loved that for once we got a hero that wanted to TALK things out. He wanted to talk about what was happening, he wanted to express his feelings when he had them, he wanted to clear up any and all misunderstandings before they could even happen. I adored that the most about him, I think. Unfortunately the heroine had too big of a secret for them to live happily ever after (can't have a k-drama romance without a super huge secret that will TEAR THEM APART FOR ALL ETERNITY, or, you know, until the last scene of the last episode). I also loved how the heroine's life was so epically tragic at every turn that it was somehow hilarious. I mean, the show used her tragedy in a comedic way as opposed to a makjang way without taking the emotion out of it, which I appreciated. There is a scene with gangsters in the beginning that unsettled me (she thinks they took a movie of her being violated while she was passed out), especially when the gangsters are later portrayed as big harmless lugs, but luckily it turns out that she misunderstood and that they never did such a thing, so that was good. I just wish that had been revealed earlier so that I could have enjoyed An So Ni's antics. But anyway, I highly enjoyed the drama overall and Ma In Tak was super, super dreamy. I have never been so thoroughly into a 20 ep drama from start to finish. It's definitely going into my top favorites list.

In some completely different news, I have a new obsession, and his name is Gennady Golovkin. I accidentally got drawn into the boxing match that was on HBO back on Sept. 1. I just could not stop watching. At all. This man was mesmerizing with his ridiculously powerful blows and insanely calm attitude. Like, no matter what the other dude threw at him, Golovkin wasn't phased one bit. He knocked down a dude three times who had previously never touched the floor (in practice or in his 28 fights). I just... this man... he blew my mind. And I ended up watching clips of his old fights on YouTube, and he knocks almost every opponent out within 3-5 rounds (or one). A few have gone the distance with him, but the only one that I saw on YouTube only managed to get that far because he kept running away from Golovkin or else he'd pull him into a hug and give him body shots and then act like Golovkin was hitting him on the back of the head so that the ref would penalize him. You have NO IDEA how much I was wishing that he had knocked that asshole out. NO IDEA. But Golovkin just couldn't get him because he kept pulling stupid crap like that. Dude didn't even try to win, he just didn't want to be knocked out. Pfft. But the fight on HBO with Grzegorz Proksa? It was epic, because Proksa wasn't afraid of him (and Proksa himself has a fun boxing style to watch). And after this fight I had to watch past Proksa fights and dude had plenty of KO's himself, but Golovkin was just too damn powerful. WATCH THEIR GLORIOUS DANCE:



For serious, I have never seen such beautiful grace in boxing. Not that I've watched a lot of boxing, mind you, but... LOOK AT HIM. HE'S SO BEAUTIFUL. His accent also helped to win me over. I'm kind of going through a phase where I love Russian dudes (he's from Kazakhstan, but he's still of Russian descent, so it counts).
firthgal: (comm - jackassery)
So, you remember how the whole K-pop thing used to just plain baffle me and I was like, "Pfft, I'll never be into that"? Well, I find myself completely addicted to the classy stylings of 2NE1. I mean, the name alone is wondrous, but they also give us gems like this:



THE OUTFITS. THE HAIR. THE POODLE. THE ATTITUDE (they basically just keep saying "I am the best" over and over and over again). I WANT TO BE THEM. But, these girls aren't just wacky badasses, they also sing songs that make a statement:



Sometimes I wonder if the reason why this one's my favorite is because it's the only one where the entire chorus is in English, but it really is a wonderful song, and one that I think everyone can identify with (it's not even ironic that a group of teenage girls who have all probably had plastic surgery are singing it). I am also very in love with this one:



You can bet that I do that "I don't ca-a-a-a-a-are" dance right along with them. I am always massively jealous of Dara's crazy ponytails. I want so badly to fix my hair in such a way that my ponytail totally defies gravity, but I just don't think that I could pull that look off, unfortunately. *sigh*

Also, ever since Kim Hyun Joong got a haircut, I seem to be totally enchanted by him. Which is baffling, because pre-haircut he always reminded me of Michael Jackson circa the early to mid 90s, which is not attractive in the least, and yet all the girlies were still swooning over him, which made me scratch my head quite a lot. Especially during Playful Kiss, because I just did not understand how the girl could so faithfully follow him around her entire life and just completely ignore the fact that he was a total douche to her. But now? After the haircut? Oh man, I totally get it. He's like a different person! It's crazy! No, seriously, look:





Would you even assume that that's the same dude? Dayum.

MORE VISUAL AIDS FOR YOU )
firthgal: (IU)
IU IS QUITE POSSIBLY THE MOST ADORABLE HUMAN BEING ON EARTH.



SEE? Also, one of the new songs off of her re-release of Real is totally kickass:



LOVE! And while we're on the subject of cute things:



LOOOOOOOOOOVE!!!! OMG, they are so adorable. ESPECIALLY AFTER CONFESSING THINGS.



♥ ♥ ♥

And just in case that was too much adorable for you, have some ANGST of the Sam Dong variety:



Oh, Sam Dong. *sniff* You know, I wasn't all that involved with the main love triangle at first because I thought it was pretty obvious that Hye Mi would end up with Jin Guk (which... blah), but after these last two eps? I feel like Hye Mi/Sam Dong isn't such a lost cause after all, and I find myself way more invested than I was before. Which kind of sucks, because I'm still pretty sure that Hye Mi will stay blindly in love with Jin Guk, but oh is the show giving me hope. ONE CAN DREAM. But luckily my OTP is Jason/Pilsuk, so if Sam Dong/Hye Mi doesn't happen, I won't be too heartbroken.

In other news, I've spent the last few days watching an anime called Toradora!, and, well, I loved it. A lot. I usually talk about how I can't get into animes, but apparently I totally can if the plot is reminiscent of a K-drama. It was just a beautiful story all around. I loved Taiga like crazy, and Amin (Ami?) was even lovable, and I think I maybe kind of shipped them (I don't usually do femslash, but anime makes it so easy). I also shipped Taiga/Minori (which is just a given when Taiga spends most of their scenes rubbing her head on Minori's boobs. Oh, anime, it never fails to be perverted, even when aimed at young girls!) Ryujji was probably the least fascinating character for me, but he was the glue that held everyone together, and he and Taiga's relationship was adorable and hilarious and sweet and deeply touching. God, in the latter half of the series they made me cry so much. I got so emotionally invested in these characters that it was crazy. So, yeah, definitely a well done anime. Usually I find animes too over the top, but this one treated its emotional moments in such a real/human way that it was just perfection. It wasn't too angsty, but it wasn't too cracky either. It had a lovely mix of humor, crazy, and drama that tugged on your heart strings. Also, I think this song was mainly what got my emotions going:



SO BEAUTIFUL.

In other other news, OMG I had no idea that Valentine's Day was such a busy time for retail. I worked my ass off this weekend. Was so ridiculously tired by the end of Monday night that I just collapsed into bed, and my feet were hurting so much that I could barely walk for two days. UGH. IT WAS AWFUL. Probably because they had me working the late shift every single night. Luckily I got two days off in a row to recuperate. Apparently I've gotten way too used to taking it easy since Christmas ended. I'm no longer used to these holiday crowds, gosh darn it!

GREATEST UTHER VID EVER:



OMG. *flaily hands* I so love how INSANE it is, like, it really gets the point across that Uther is a paranoid sociopath who alienates absolutely everyone around him, and he has basically destroyed his life. Just... the pain, the rage, the crazy, it's all there. LOVE!

And this Uther/Morgana one leaves me with chills:



HOW DID THEIR LOVE GO SO WRONG? WHY DOES THEIR PAIN MAKE ME HAPPY? I just don't know.

I was actually watching some of my old vids, because I am lame and do that from time to time, but someone had given me a Thumbs Down on Until We Bleed and I was like, "Whaaaat? If I'm going to get a Thumbs Down, it should be for my shoddily made vid to Ashielf Pi." And then of course I had to watch Ashielf Pi, and damn, I forgot how epic that song makes everything, even shoddily made fanvids!



See? LOOK HOW EXPLOSIVE THEY ARE! It's all due to that song, because seriously, that vid had way too many glitches, and it didn't come out the way I wanted it to because I didn't have the capability to do voiceovers back then, so you have little shots of people completing their previous sentences and it drives me NUTS. But, yeah, that song makes it 20 times better than it actually is. Of course, that's pretty much the case with Until We Bleed, too, if I'm honest (and I was experimenting with that one anyway, so I guess it's not surprising that I received a Thumbs Down, but I am awfully proud of that vid for some weird reason and DO NOT APPRECIATE THAT THUMBS DOWN, DAMN IT!). Even my Viva La Vida vid is more deserving of a thumbs down than that one! I can't believe how popular that one is, by the way. I mean, every time I go back and watch that one I crack up at how literal I took it with some of the lyrics, and the timing is all off through the entire last third of the song, and just... augh, I hate that I can see all these flaws and not appreciate the praise. But with Until We Bleed I'm just like, "Yeah, I'm awesome," even though barely anyone likes it. *sigh* But yeah, my vids are very elementary compared to the others that I've embedded.

Anyway, let's end this post with a sweet vid, because all the rest were either heartbreaking or explosive:



*sniff*

Oh, oh, one more!



SO PRETTY. Oh, Uther, I love it when you try to be a decent human being! ♥

Gosh, look at me fangirling over Uther and Uther/Morgana! What is this, 2009?

So uh... you know how I was shipping Chul Young and Soon Hwa like crazy during my watch of IRIS? You know, these two beautiful mofos:



I felt that they had crazy hot chemistry that NEEDED TO BE EXPLORED, but sadly it wasn't, yet I still enjoyed their awesome relationship of killer stoicness as it was. But anyway, I've been YouTubing Kim Seung Woo all day (because apparently he is my new obsession. He's even my new desktop wallpaper!) and I came across this epicness:

(Part 1)


(Part 2)


(Part 3)


ARE THEY NOT THE MOST SPLENDIDLY BEAUTIFUL COUPLE TO EVER GRACE THE EARTH? HOLY CRAP.

I also came across this lovely vid that KSW did with the rejected fiance from Boys Over Flowers, who I adored, plus, AGE GAP, so this vid made me kind of giddy. Not as giddy as the ones he did with Kim So Yeon, though. Korean music videos are so utterly insane, BUT I LOVE THEM.

Also, I've concluded that my main attraction to Kim Seung Woo comes from him looking so much like an older version of John Lloyd Cruz. The resemblance is uncanny.

You know, if the show made Gwen/Arthur as epic as this vid made it:



I would probably ship the heck out of them. But, you know, in the actual show, Merlin is there being all epic with Arthur, which makes it hard to appreciate this Arthur/Gwen business. AND THEN THERE'S LANCELOT, BEING ALL DREAMY WITH HIS HYPERBOLIC PICKUP LINES.




Oooooooh, Lancelot, you win every time. Why? Because you've made Gwen feel like a princess right from the start. I think that's what will always, always sway me towards Lancelot/Gwen, even though he only shows up for one episode a season and TOTALLY LEFT LAST TIME WITHOUT SAYING GOODBYE. JERK. And yet, I feel Gwen's love for Lancelot so much more than I feel whatever it is that she feels for Arthur. I am so, so sorry Arthur, but at least you still have Merlin, right? Right? RIGHT?

I just finished the third book of The Immortals series. SO MUCH SUBTEXT, HOLY CRAP. DAINE IS NUMAIR'S WEAKNESS. NUMAIR WON'T LEAVE WITHOUT HER. DAINE DESTROYED AN ENTIRE KINGDOM TO AVENGE HIS SUPPOSED DEATH. DAINE WAS TOTALLY JEALOUS OF VARICE. NUMAIR WAS TOTALLY JEALOUS OF KADDAR. NUMAIR CALLED DAINE PRETTY AND WORRIED ABOUT THE DAY SHE'D GET MARRIED. Oh, them. They are in love. Love love love. Also, I kind of ship Daine/Rikash? You know, if Rikash didn't stink of rotting flesh and had man bits instead of bird bits (and if Numair didn't exist), THEY WOULD BE SO AWESOME TOGETHER. I just love how they have this begrudging respect for each other that somehow turned into a begrudging liking of each other where they can even laugh together and think about each other in a way that doesn't involve murder. It's quite lovely! But, you know, Numair is her man.



I am going to go ahead and finish this meme up, because I predict that I will be obsessing over Vampire Diaries come Thursday and Merlin come Saturday and will completely forget about finishing this thing, so:

The 30 Day Community Meme
Day 24 - A scene that made you angry

Honestly, I can't think of one! This show pretty consistently makes me happy. (reading comments to secrets about the show on [livejournal.com profile] fandomsecrets, however, makes me pretty damn angry. Yes, there was more Jeff/Annie wank today. No, I don't understand how the Jeff/Annie fans are such an abomination against humanity. Clearly these people have been in extremely tame fandoms before they got to this one, because I've always felt that this one was nearly wank-free. Heck, even The Office fandom is less tame than this one!)

Day 25 - Something that happened that you wish didn’t

The first few episodes, where Jeff is a total douche who just wants to get into Britta's pants? Yeah, I hated that, and it almost made me quit the show. But then it started utilizing its ensemble and I fell in mad, mad love. Oh, also? I was not fond of The Art of Discourse, namely the duh-off scene. I know that I am in the very small minority on this one, but ugh, I hated that ep so freaking much.

Day 26 - Something that didn’t happen that you wish did

Ever since reading this interview, I've been wondering what it would've been like had they gone with the whole "Let’s do a finale where it seems like we’re playing this love triangle and then just out of left field let’s just try something like Britta goes to his apartment door and opens it up and Annie answers it and it's clear that she was having sex." If the fandom is in this much of an uproar over a kiss, JUST IMAGINE THE INSANITY THAT WOULD COME FROM JEFF/ANNIE SEX. I don't really wish it had gone this way, I'm just curious about the impact that it would have had. With just a kiss, they can still keep Jeff/Annie somewhat innocent and keep playing off of their UST, whereas with the other option it would pretty much be saying, "Hey, we went there, we solved their UST, now we can move on." So, I guess I'm happier with how things actually turned out, but, you know, I AM INTRIGUED.

Day 27 - Favorite cast image



Day 28 - What you want for Season Two

Epic hilarity. Some Jeff/Annie adorableness (yeah, suck it, f!s commenters!). FIELD TRIP SHENANIGANS. WHY HAVE THEY NOT GONE A FIELD TRIP YET?

Day 29 - What your overall opinion was of Season One

IT WAS SO SUPER EPICALLY AWESOME IN EVERY WAY. Well, it got off to a slow start, but once it hit its stride, it was wonderful. No show does parodies/reference episodes better than this one does.

Day 30 - Whatever tickles your fancy

I'm not forty. I can hear you through the window, morons

next up on the curriculum... )

It's quite lovely! But, you know, Numair is her man.



I am going to go ahead and finish this meme up, because I predict that I will be obsessing over Vampire Diaries come Thursday and Merlin come Saturday and will completely forget about finishing this thing, so:

The 30 Day Community Meme
Day 24 - A scene that made you angry

Honestly, I can't think of one! This show pretty consistently makes me happy. (reading comments to secrets about the show on [livejournal.com profile] fandomsecrets, however, makes me pretty damn angry. Yes, there was more Jeff/Annie wank today. No, I don't understand how the Jeff/Annie fans are such an abomination against humanity. Clearly these people have been in extremely tame fandoms before they got to this one, because I've always felt that this one was nearly wank-free. Heck, even The Office fandom is less tame than this one!)

Day 25 - Something that happened that you wish didn’t

The first few episodes, where Jeff is a total douche who just wants to get into Britta's pants? Yeah, I hated that, and it almost made me quit the show. But then it started utilizing its ensemble and I fell in mad, mad love. Oh, also? I was not fond of The Art of Discourse, namely the duh-off scene. I know that I am in the very small minority on this one, but ugh, I hated that ep so freaking much.

Day 26 - Something that didn’t happen that you wish did

Ever since reading this interview, I've been wondering what it would've been like had they gone with the whole "Let’s do a finale where it seems like we’re playing this love triangle and then just out of left field let’s just try something like Britta goes to his apartment door and opens it up and Annie answers it and it's clear that she was having sex." If the fandom is in this much of an uproar over a kiss, JUST IMAGINE THE INSANITY THAT WOULD COME FROM JEFF/ANNIE SEX. I don't really wish it had gone this way, I'm just curious about the impact that it would have had. With just a kiss, they can still keep Jeff/Annie somewhat innocent and keep playing off of their UST, whereas with the other option it would pretty much be saying, "Hey, we went there, we solved their UST, now we can move on." So, I guess I'm happier with how things actually turned out, but, you know, I AM INTRIGUED.

Day 27 - Favorite cast image



Day 28 - What you want for Season Two

Epic hilarity. Some Jeff/Annie adorableness (yeah, suck it, f!s commenters!). FIELD TRIP SHENANIGANS. WHY HAVE THEY NOT GONE A FIELD TRIP YET?

Day 29 - What your overall opinion was of Season One

IT WAS SO SUPER EPICALLY AWESOME IN EVERY WAY. Well, it got off to a slow start, but once it hit its stride, it was wonderful. No show does parodies/reference episodes better than this one does.

Day 30 - Whatever tickles your fancy

I'm not forty. I can hear you through the window, morons

OT3!!!!!!!



Oh, Damon, you and your unrequited love. ♥



Damon + Ke$ha = OTP. OH, DAMON, somehow him dancing with his shirt open totally makes up for killing all those people. IT JUST DOES. I love this dude way too much. Oh, oh, one thing that I forgot to mention in my various Vamp Diaries posts? Ian Somerhalder reminds me in pretty much every way of Rob Lowe. It's kind of freaky. BUT HE IS HOT NONETHELESS. Gah, I don't normally drool over age appropriate dudes, but Ian is one beautiful, beautiful man (and, technically, he's a little bit older than me, so, he's not too much of an anomaly).

And now for my favorite, because we all know that the real love story on Vampire Diaries is Damon/Alaric:



BROTP OF THE CENTURY. Brenemies? Bronemies? I don't know, but they are epic in all of their badass snarky glory.

Russian Uther/Morgana with random PORN:



WIN. SO MUCH WIN. Oh god. Uther is so totally ripped under all that chainmail, you guys. I LOVE IT. MORE THAN I SHOULD.

Also, I spent far too much time this evening watching sappy Merlin/Arthur vids.





Far too much time. I am sad that of all the Merlin/Arthur "Your Guardian Angel" vids, this is the only one that makes me all swoony, AND IT'S THE ONLY UNFINISHED ONE. Not fair, dudes, not fair.

I love the literalness of this one:



But this, by far, is probably one of the greatest things to ever exist in this universe:



I laughed so ridiculously hard at "Judi Dench." Oh god. Also, I will just assume that Morgana is Jane and Uther is Bingley, which is insane, but that's totally what the vid led me to believe.
