Do you like Alias? Do you like BSG? THEN CHECK OUT THE FIC [livejournal.com profile] yahtzee63 WROTE ME, IT IS THE GREATEST THING OF ALL THINGS, So Say We All. You will find:

- Commander Bristow
- President Derevko
- Super Scientist Arvin Sloane
- Lieutenant Calfo
- and pilots Oracle, Shotgun, Outrigger, Houdini, Merlin, Shotgun and Phoenix.

I legitimately could not love it any more than I do.

Taken from the lovely [livejournal.com profile] ivanolix:

Post, in your journal, a rec list singling out the best of your own fics. Tell people why you are especially proud of those particular fics, and of course provide links to them. Yes, that's right, this step involves self-promotion. How else are people supposed to find your fics? List as many or as few as you feel appropriate to represent your body of writing.

Also include a paragraph about the types of fics you most enjoy reading or are most interested in reading in the immediate future -- favorite tropes, pairings, fandoms, whatever. If you're particularly lazy, link to that Dear Writer post you did for whatever holiday exchange comes to mind.

Reply to other rec posts (like for example the one you are reading now) by reccing a fic of your own that might fit the original poster's tastes, or that you'd just really like them to read, because maybe they don't know they'd like it.


This goes against everything I hold dear, to promote myself, but I'm going to give it a shot!

So I write things sometimes! )

Types of fic that I like... well, I like anything that makes me feel something strongly, be it happiness or emotional destruction. I love stories about my ships, or the relationships I like- friendships and families. I love fics that fill in the gaps, or explain how things happened, or why things are the way they are. I love lots and lots of details and backstories. And I'm known for my fondness for cracky AUs.

(Now please, everyone, do this meme so I don't feel conceited.)

IT'S NOT EVEN TEN YEARS OLD YET, GODDAMN.

Again, it’s only very initial talk at this point, but I’m told that the development folks over at the Alphabet network are considering doing a new version of Alias that would borrow some elements of the original series…..But the series would most likely not include any sort of complex mythological throughline such as the Rambaldi prophecy (a storyline that lost some of the fans).

I don't think this will actually happen, but I AM NERVOUS JUST THE SAME. MY BABIES!!!

Edit: I just watched the ad for JJ's new show, which looks absolutely delightful, but they use so many damn locations from Alias episodes that I find really jarring.

Bones is lecturing in the same room where the Alliance met with Sloane! I LOVE LA FILM LOCATIONS.

It's kind of weird that the last two times I've started watching what would become my epic TV obsession, they've both been on memorable days. I started watching Alias on Christmas Eve- I remember because I didn't realize how long the pilot was, and I had to pause it before the end so that I could go to mass. (I later realized I stopped it like, a minute before the end, heh.)

Then with BSG, I started watching it the day of the finale. At least, I count that as my first day- I knew it was airing, and when it ended, I went to the wikipedia to see what had happened to the President and the Admiral that my friend Yubs was so into. Then I saw that SciFi SyFy was playing it again, so I put it on in the background. And it made me sob. I was doing my taxes and bawling over Lauroslin's tragic death when I started downloading the mini.

Which makes today my one year anniversary. :-D

So thanks, show, (and [livejournal.com profile] yubsie!) for all the joy, inside jokes, agony, icons, new friends, new fic and glory that the past twelve months have held.

Day 15 → A fanfic

I absolutely could not pick one. Also, it's a lot harder to me to find all the Alias fic I love, because when I first started reading it, I wasn't obsessive about keeping track of things. I mean, website archives were around forever, right? WRONG. Sometimes they disappeared, and took all the fic with it

Also, while compiling this list (namely, going to get the link for Jodhpur,) I found out that I favorited a BSG fic in 2007 on ff.n. And not just any BSG fic- a Gaius/Six BSG fic. In 2007. By an author who I have since seen on LJ, but I don't know her, and I didn't follow any of the other fandoms she wrote for on ff.n, and ESSENTIALLY THIS IS A BIG OLD MASSIVE MYSTERY and it is making me insane. HOW DID IT HAPPEN? Did I watch the entire series and then just forget it because I was... given selective amnesia? What is this nonsense!

Anyway. Fics!

Day 03 → Your favorite television program

So, the way I felt as this day of this meme approached is best explained in a quote from Jessie Spano: "I'm so excited! I'm so excited! I'm so... so... scaaaaared." Because it meant I had to choose my TV show, and that would've always been an easy answer before, but NOW IT IS NOT. So I've been thinking about this since before I even started the meme and now... now I'm ready.

You think I'm kidding, but it was an effing battle royale in my heart about this. )

So that's embarrassingly long winded.

The new "Untitled Marital Spy Project" from J.J. Abrams now has an official home at NBC!

For those of you who have seen HIMYM, you know the sound of Barney's voice when he hears that there is a second Robin Sparkles video? THAT IS THE SOUND I AM MAKING IN MY HEAD. MARITAL SPIES! JABRAMS!

My mind is warring between wanting it to cast Jen and Vartan so badly it hurts, or, for them just to say "fuck it, we're bringing in the class" and getting Victor and Lena. (Yes. I know these are all highly unrealistic and wildly fanciful. THIS IS WHAT DREAMS ARE MADE OF, PEOPLE. MY DREAMS ARE MADE OF MARRIED SPIES AND ACTORS I LOVE.)

Yes. I should be asleep. This is more important. SPIES + JJ + MY TV.
