trensu: (long day)

Recently, I started keeping lists of my favorite fics on Word documents. One Word document per fandom. Fandoms included are: Merlin, Doctor Who, Stargate Atlantis, Supernatural, and Kingdom Hearts. Most of these lists are less than five pages long, all in Calibri 11 font type/size.

Stargate Atlantis is on page 39 with 261 entries. *facepalm*

This means that A) all the best writers reside in the SGA fandom, B) I might not be as discerning in my fic reading as I originally thought, C) McShep is just that good or D) some combination of all of the above.

So...several fandoms to talk about this time around, along with some real life stuff.

Slight spoilers for SPN, Kingdom Hearts, and Merlin )

Lastly, my little brother had his first band concert today. He plays the baritone which is probably as big as he is. He was so adorable. The whole fifth grade band was adorable. They were all so excited to be playing their instruments. *smug* Of course, my brother was the best :) His instructor is considering upgrading him to a tuba and on his band progress report he got Exceeds Expectations on everything. The little guy is awesome, what can I say? It's 'cause he's got such an awesome big sister, methinks.

And finally, happy birthday to me! I believe this episode of Merlin is quite the appropriate gift to myself.
trensu: (hee)

Dude, I'm so impressed with myself.

Now, I don't consider myself to be very tech-savvy. I'm the most tech-savvy person in my family but that's not saying much as my family's tech-savvyness encompasses logging on and clicking internet/email icons. I can do more than that, but not much. So, when I got my new laptop--which I named Emrys Pendragon in honor of my Merlin!obsession--I was somewhat troubled. But, yay! got all the applications and programs working on it. Then I realized I had no internet connection.

Because of my required computer class--and my mom's work friend who knows a bit about this stuff--I realized I needed a router and to set up a network. It took me hours, but by the end of it all I had a secure network connection so that I can, on my dear blue Emrys laptop, access the internet from my room or outside (or anywhere within a thousand feet of the router).

It may not sound like a big deal, but, you guys, I set it up all by myself!! Without irreparably damaging any equipment. AND IT WORKS. *preens* There may be hope for me yet!
trensu: (facepalm)
So, I sort of realize I'm a slash-obsessed fangirl. I hadn't realized I  was a psychotic slash-obsessed fangirl.

I watched the last episode of season one of Merlin last night. I also watched a youtube vid using Enrique Iglesia's "I Can Be Your Hero" with Arthur/Merlin. I suppose that might explain the spazzy dream I had last night.

I dreamt that I was Merlin and I was planning my wedding. I was in a huge Gothic cathedral and there were fluttery doves all around. It was actually really pretty. My spouse-to-be was...Prince Arthur. *choke* I do not understand my dreams, really I don't. As much as I love Arthur/Merlin,  I much prefer Merlin because he is cute and adorable. I rather would've preferred to be Prince Arthur marrying Merlin. And a cathedral? REALLY? I would think the clergy frowned upon my not-marriage.

I woke up and was all "what?"

trensu: (watching)
I just finished watching "Midnight" from season four of Doctor Who. This is the second time I watched it. The first time left be devastated and extremely frustrated. Really, I would like to pretend that human beings can be better than that. I like to pretend that we actually think before embracing the whole "kill the unknown entity." *le sigh* So, yeah, it was an uber-aggravating episode. Not to say it was a bad episode; the tension and suspense had me at the edge of my seat and my mind was completely captivated by the possibilities the unknown entity brought forth.

Also, when first watched it I thought emo-kid was pretty and I wanted to keep him. Now, my second time through, I realized that emo-kid's name is Jethro and is played by COLIN MORGAN. Results of the second viewing: still captivated by the plot but was easily distracted by pretty Colin. I'm fairly certain that I sort of squealed "He's so CUTE." every time he was on screen. My mom kept shooting amused/miffed glances in my direction. But! She agrees that Colin-dearest is very and utterly adorable.

Emo!Colin is just amazing. And I couldn't stop alternating between admiring his cheek bones and ogling his exposed neck. He has a nice neck. Curse Merlin and his stupidly endearing neckerchiefs.

*blush* I really should have more self-control. This is embarrassing behavior.

Let's be distracted by today's events now. )
trensu: (sparks)
Merlin is awesome, I've decided. I've been watching it as much as I can since it first aired on NBC. Unfortunately, I work until 7 on Sundays so I usually miss the first half of every episode. Which sucks, but what can you do? Besides, every bit assuages the pain of being Supernatural-less. Also, Merlin inspires an "OMG, SQUEE" fangirly reaction from me.

Why? Well, because... )
