appalling_cynicism: (Happiness is key.)
I do not remember the last time I fell this hard and fast for a fandom. I do have some gender issue thingies to discuss though. I adore this particular incarnation of Guinevere, she is adorable and bubbly and probably tastes like strawberries. However, ever since I first heard the Arthurian legend when I was about 13, I kind of hated her and what she did. I have mega-issues when it comes to cheating. It isn't because she is eventually going to marry Arthur, it is because she is eventually going to marry Arthur then betray him. However, that said, given how fluid these legends are over time, I wouldn't mind too much if they changed it. All the great legends evolve over time.

Er, this is all only relevant if the show lasts a lot longer than I expect it will.

In other words, I do not hate Gwen because she has a vagina. In fact, so far I don't hate Gwen at all. If they stick to the legend though, I will. I will hate her a lot.

Also, I want a Bradley James.

I'm starting to ship George/Gary, two of the judges from MasterChef. What the hell is wrong with me? I've never had a reality show ship before. I'm not sure I like it. And I beg to differ with the critics that keep bitching the whole focus of the show should be food. That's crap. The main focus of the show is people, food is kind of secondary. I probably wouldn't watch if it was all about the food.

I should not be so into this show.

My cousin is moving in with me! This is a very awesome.

The Merlin fandom is so fricking awesome. I've found very little of the badfic that you usually have to wade through when you get into a new fandom, and so much fricking amazing fic that it isn't funny.

It is wet and cold here tonight. I think I'll be making a pot of tea soon.

I don't want Sammy to get eliminated!

Cadbury advertising really has done its job well. As soon as the creepy kids with the eyebrows ad came on I knew right away it was a Cadbuy ad. It was the dress that did it. No advertiser would unintentionally do that.

I really hate that ad, it is creepy.

I made my first ever pie today. I overcompensated for sour blackberries with too much sugar, so the guts are disgustingly sweet, almost inedibly so, but it held together and the crust is beautiful. I am very excited about that part, it was my great-great-grandmother's recipe and I was paranoid I would fuck it up.

I'm slowly exploring the Merlin fandom. It seems pretty awesome.

I watched the first two eps of Merlin last night. I may now ship Merlin/Arthur. Seriously, they're begging for it. I have to say, though, I'm a little puzzled by the whole Arthur/Guinevere role reversal. Isn't half the point of the Arthur mythology that Arthur was raised as a commoner?

Apparently, I am just ignoring that thing I said about plans top stop acquiring fandoms like they're going out of style. *le sigh* If only I listened to myself...
