Well. It's been snowing here for most of the week. It's cold. There's not a whole lot to do other than catch up on TV (and YAY, stuff is actually back post-Xmas).

Thus, today's efforts:

I was listening to some Lady Gaga just now, and a couple of things occurred to me.

#1. "Beautiful, Dirty, Rich" very much makes me think Gossip Girl.

#2. I kind of want to write some sort of fic involving Doctor Who and "Paparazzi". Because the Doctor with a crazy stalker fan would be funny. (C'mon, he's had them before! LINDA, anyone?)

ALSO, the watch-age of Stargate Universe continues. I've pretty much decided my ships now... so far, Young/TJ, Scott/Chloe, Chloe and Eli as friends only, and I'm a bit hesitant to start pairing Rush with anyone. Though I did read this really awesome Rush/Chloe fic in [livejournal.com profile] sgufic.
trillianastra: (gg you know you love me)
OK, so. As you may have gathered from last night's (technically THIS MORNING'S) post, I have finished Season 2.

The finale kinda knocked me for six, slightly (read: massively). So much so that it made me use a sports metaphor just there and I don't usually do that.

ANYWAY. I have now seen the first one-and-a-half episodes of SEASON THREE (re: the half... blame streaming sites and the fact that I don't live in the US). So far, it is glorious, except for *grits teeth* Carter Baizen, who can go DIAF.

ANYWAY. Georgina's back. And at NYU. With Dan and Vanessa and (tee hee) Blair. And she's being... well, Georgina. Not Jesus Camp Georgina, though, that was scary. Just the regular evil-manipulative-Georgina. And I have this problem, because a while back I had this random, slightly cracky idea that at [some unspecified time in their post-college lives] Dan and Georgina meet, by accident, in Vegas and get drunk!married in one of those chapel places with an Elvis impersonator performing the ceremony.

(No, I don't know where that came from either. Yes, it worries me too.)

My problem is that now, every time I see them on screen together, all I can think is "yep, drunk!married in Vegas". THIS IS NOT GOOD, PEOPLE.

(It gets even worse... in the crazy post-college world I've apparently invented for them, they have a KID. Carolina Sparks-Humphrey. She takes after Dan, thankfully.)

Oh, and Scott AKA The Lost Humphrey Brother... I'm quite impressed that the casting people found someone who a) looks enough like Penn Badgeley to conceivably be related and b) looks so much like he could be Matthew Settle's kid.


PS. If I could also get Lady Gaga OUT of my head, that would be good. But I'm not expecting miracles.
trillianastra: (non judging breakfast club)
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

Yeah, I just watched the last five episodes of Season Two.


AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH is about the only response I have right now.

RANDOM STUFF

1. Jesus!Camp!Georgina is, if anything, EVEN SCARIER than the usual G.

2. Um. I love Dan. This is all.

3. NAAAAAATE! YAY, he was awesome and rebelled against Don Corleonehis grandfather! Woo!

4. For one horrible moment, I thought Jonathan was GG. It was weird. He wasn't even a candidate.

5. Errr... what exactly DID G do to Poppy? Or do I really not want to know? I don't think I want to know, somehow...

6. WOO! RUFUS PROPOSED. FINALLY. (3.05, 3.05, 3.05)

7. 80s!Lily was cool. But I wanted to know what happened with Owen...

8. whoa, whoa, whoa, WTF... Coffee Shop Guy, Scott, the one who was talking to Dan. He's... OMG, he's not the Lost Humphrey-van der Woodsen Baby, is he? I think he is. In which case, AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!

9. *EPIC FLAIL* CHUCK SAID 'I LOVE YOU'. ACTUALLY TO BLAIR THIS TIME. *FLAIL*

(Chuck did have so, so many moments of AWESOMENESS in these eps, too. Honestly, if he and Blair weren't soulmates, I'd marry him myself. I would. Really.)

10. Penelope, etc., can go DIAF. On that note, GO JENNY!

And now, because it's now just after 1am, I'm going to bed. Tomorrow: SEASON THREE. *squee*
trillianastra: (gg you know you love me)
Seen: from "chuck in real life" (ep 7) to "gone with the will" (ep 15)

There were so, so many moments that made me go OMGWTFWAIT...

The Big Things, though, are:

1. I do NOT like Uncle Jack. He makes me want to stab things.

2. Presently, I would very much like to rescue Chuck, give him a really big hug, and spirit him away somewhere and look after him.

3. My conviction that Chuck and Blair are soulmates is even stronger than it was before. I think it was the point where the dates they picked for each other for the Snowflake Ball were beta versions of themselves... and the point where the Betas hooked up. Evidently, the universe is dead-set on this relationship happening.

4. And then there's Rufus and Lily. Where to start... well, the Lost Humphrey-van der Woodsen Baby was a surprise, certainly. Then there was the Dan-finding-out part, which got a whole lot more complicated via the addition of GG to the mix... I'm pretty sure having the news published on a website frequented by most of the UES wasn't how Lily wanted her kids to find out (or Rufus, obvs, but he only just found out anyway). Damn you, Nelly Yuki, for being so sneaky and stealing Dan's phone.

(Also not terribly happy with the Adoptive Parents, who totally just told Rufus and Lily that their son was DEAD, just to make them stop trying to make contact. That's harsh, APs.)

5. I am much, much more excited about the new Humphrey-van der Woodsen alliance than I was about the Vanderbass alliance. As I have said before, Rufus and Lily are soulmates. No one - not even Bart - was going to stand in the way of their relationship for long.

Now... onwards, to what I suspect is going to be Blair getting extremely anxious about Yale/college in general...

PS. Dorota is awesome. Nate is still heartstoppingly gorgeous. Jenny... is getting more awesome. Eric is fantastic. Dan is still... wonderful.
trillianastra: (non judging breakfast club)
(this happens every year, you know. NaNoWriMo starts and suddenly, ALL the plotbunnies go into freaking hyperdrive).

ANYWAY.

The one that showed up today is... and bear with me on this... The Wizard of Oz, Gossip Girl style, and set... well, at the moment either Queens or Staten Island will be standing in for Oz. (Manhattan/Brooklyn is Kansas, obviously)

I narrowed down the Wizard of Oz cast, too, so we have...

Dorothy......................Jenny (she's the youngest and most innocent-looking... it was her or Eric, which would be... ironic, actually)
The Scarecrow................Nate (pretty but not so good with the smarts)
The Cowardly Lion............Dan (think about it...)
The Tin Man Girl......Blair (it makes sense if you think about it)
The Wizard...................Chuck. (like I'd cast anyone else...)

The Wicked Witch Of The West..... Georgina, duh.

(I'm also considering Serena for the Witch of the East, but then I'd have to metaphorically drop a house on her.... then again, maybe the Duchess would be better...)
trillianastra: (gg you know you love me)
Episodes seen:
- "the dark night" (GRRRRR NEED TO MAYBE KILL CATHERINE NOW),
- "the ex-files" (WAIT WHAT THE HELL?!),
- "the serena also rises" (Blair, you are being decidedly un-awesome here. stop that RIGHT NOW. Also, yay, Serena grew a spine...)
- "new haven can wait" (Chuck meets the Skull and Bones society. YES, YOU SHOULD BE QUAKING IN YOUR BOOTS.)

ANYWAY. I had some ideas. Fic-based ideas. (honestly, this happens in most of my fandoms... *sigh*)

IDEA OF AWESOME #1:

This one is a Supernatural crossover, and (should it ever get written) should not be taken seriously AT ALL.

Really, just picture this: instead of picking Nick the Random Guy as a vessel, Supernatural!Lucifer chooses....

*drumroll*

GEORGINA SPARKS.

('Cause of her being evil and all. It's a match made in Hell.)

IDEA OF AWESOME #2:

Not a crossover (unusually for me).. this one would be a future!fic, I guess. Sort of... the characters that we love/hate/drool over (delete as applicable), twenty or twenty-five years into their futures.

Chuck/Blair is a MUST for this one. It might also be a good way for me to get some Nate/Jenny in.

AND THERE WOULD BE CHILDREN.

I picked out the names for Chuck and Blair's kids already - twins, a boy and a girl, named Charles Howard Bass and Eleanor Serena Bass. There may also be a subplot that involves Dan and temporarily!reformed!Georgina getting drunk!married in Reno and ending up with a kid of their own, who may or may not be called Carolina.

...yeah, OK, I MAY have thought about this in quite a lot of detail...
trillianastra: (non judging breakfast club)
Er... OK, so my reaction to this season so far consists mainly of *FLAIL*, with occasional moments of coherency.

#1. I... wait... 'James'/Marcus... dude. Nice catch, B. Even if you didn't know it at the time. (In hindsight, the cricket jumper should have been a giveaway, really.)

#2. I am so, totally, adopting the word "motherchucker".

#3. NATE! *hugs*

#4. .....um, Nate has a sugarmommy. This is NOT going to end well.

#5. Eric has, somehow, become even more awesome than he was in Season One.

#6. WAIT, WHAT THE FRAK... Nate's sugarmommy is the stepmother of Blair's Lord Marcus...

...like I said, not going to end well. Also, kinda creepy.

#7. I think possibly, CeeCee did something NICE, for DAN. Dan, who she's not meant to like. (Is it bad that I automatically think she has an ulterior motive?)

#8. Dan, you player. "A different girl every date", I think it was.

#9. In even more shocking news, CHUCK did something nice. Which got thrown back in his face by Nate, but... well, he tried!

#10. Um.. I think Rufus is having a mid-life crisis. Or WAS, anyway.

#11. My love for Dan continues to grow, even if I think he should try writing something that isn't a thinly veiled autobiography for once.

#12. ...and, yes, Chace Crawford still turns my brain to mush every time I look at him, and I still ship him with practically everyone else. (I was going to say 'except for the parents', but thanks to the Duchess I can't. Dammit.)

#13. The Duchess implied that the Waldorfs were LOWLY. This, surprisingly, makes me want to stab things a bit.

Episodes Seen: "Summer, kind of wonderful" and "Never been marcused".
trillianastra: (non judging breakfast club)
*is dead from awesome*

Er, yeah, I maybe watched the last three episodes of Season One last night.

16. "all about my brother":

ERIC!! Can I just say... I kinda love Eric. He's fantastic. (Um, totally called the gay thing, though.) HOWEVER, G's EVIL is now absolutely, 150% definite.

(Slightly disappointed with Lily, but I actually LIKE Lily, so I got over that pretty fast.)

Oh, and Asher?

Yeah, I no longer have any use for Asher. Loser.

17. "woman on the verge":

I... wait... OK, so Serena... wait, no, sorry, the idea of Serena (even bad-times-Serena) killing anyone is just... freaky.

What I love about this ep is that Serena being in trouble is all that's necessary to get Nate, Chuck and Blair in the same room without them trying to kill each other. It's like Blair said - "we're like the non-judgemental Breakfast Club", and they really do know each well and (pretty obviously) they've shared enough experiences that they really do care for each other. And the fact that once they knew about G, there was NO QUESTION of them NOT doing anything about it - that was awesome.

Also: WOO, actual Rufus/Lily. FINALLY (I... could not care less about Bart. Sorry.). And... yeah, still having this issue of needing to put as much space as possible between Dan and G.

Preferably, most of the universe. But I'll settle for most of America.

18. "Much 'I Do' About Nothing":

a) Chuck's best man speech made me go AWWWWWW. Because we all know who he was talking to really...

b) Blair (and Dan) delivering Georgina-smackdown was EPIC. This is all.

c) NATE. I felt so bad for him when the Captain was meeting Dodgy Guy... but the punch was good. I LIKED the punch. (Also, Nate seems to have a pretty good right hook. Hm.)

d) UM. So, at the end, when Blair's expecting to head to Tuscany with Chuck and he ditches her for Random Girl...

Well, it wasn't exactly unexpected, was it? This is CHUCK BASS, after all. And as awesome as Chuck/Blair is, and as meant-for-each-other as they are... it wouldn't be any FUN if them getting to an actual RELATIONSHIP was EASY, would it?

Random Thoughts:

1. Er. Much as I like Serena, and I LOVE Dan, and I think they're great together...

I think I'm more attached to Rufus/Lily than I am to Serena/Dan. Maybe because only one of those has been twenty years in the making and has (....sort of) survived five marriages (four of Lily's, one of Rufus') and four children.

Also, Rufus and Lily did sleep together the night before she married Bart, and right before the ceremony she did tell Rufus she loved him. Thus, obviously they're soulmates. Serena and Dan aren't old enough to know who their soulmates are yet.

2. Kind of... by accident... Nate has maybe become my fandom bicycle for GG.
HE'S JUST SO PRETTY. Just in S1, I've shipped him with virtually everyone else - Jenny, Vanessa, Serena, Chuck, Dan, (kinda) Blair... there was even a twenty-second period when Nate/Georgina popped into my head, but then I reminded myself that she is EVIL and does not deserve him.

(For the record, Nate/Jenny is my perfect-world favourite, Nate/Vanessa is my practical-favourite, and Nate/Chuck... well, if THAT ever happens (*cough*3x06*cough*), it'd be like Christmas for me. That, or the world would implode.)

3. I HAVE THE FIRST BOOK.


Now... on to SEASON TWO.
trillianastra: (hardison- not the average geek)
I have this belief that, currently, most of the politicans on this planet are utterly useless.

With this in mind, I've decided that the world would be much better off run by a coalition of:

Lord Vetinari
President Laura Roslin
Blair Waldorf
Harriet Jones
Richard Alpert


(hell, they'd do a better job.)
trillianastra: (Default)
I HAVE NOW SEEN:

"the blair bitch project", in which Blair was GLORIOUS and regained her rightful place as Queen B and RULER OF THE KNOWN UNIVERSE.

(Sorry, Jenny. It's not your time yet, padawan.)

AND

"desperately seeking serena", which is...

Well. OK, so Serena's getting all these random deliveries - porn, handcuffs, champagne, and cocaine. She thinks it's Chuck, trying to make her life difficult. (And, honestly, I got very defensive of Chuck this episode. There are SOME things that even he wouldn't do... also, Chuck taking the big brother role for Eric was ADORABLE. Even if the idea of Eric being miniChuck is slightly worrying....)

ANYWAY. The surprise deliveries aren't from Chuck.

They're from the living incarnation of upper-east-side EVIL herself...

GEORGINA SPARKS.

Now, the reason I've taken such a dislike to G is not that she's blatantly trying to derail Serena's new life...

it's the fact the she's showing way, way more interest in Dan than I would like her to. In fact, I'd be happier if she could stay at least a full state away from Dan at all times, but it looks like I'm not going to be that lucky, dammit.

...I'll just be over here with my G.S. voodoo doll.

(to think, a few years back, I would never have this level of hatred for a Michelle Tractenberg character. That might be because I only knew her as Dawn Summers. And honestly, I'll take Dawn over G.S. ANY DAY.)

PS. Asher? HOT.
trillianastra: (eastwick roxy)
OK, so, with my newfound love of/addiction to Gossip Girl, I've been doing a little discreet IMDb-ing of certain cast members.

(Also, I heard that Ed Westwick was British and had to verify it for myself. He is, you know. He's also one year, one month and fifteen days younger than me. Random facts are FUN.)

ANYWAY. His filmography is... surprising, some British medical dramas and other stuff.

AND SOMETHING MUCH MORE INTERESTING.

SOMETHING LIKE WUTHERING HEIGHTS.

AS HEATHCLIFF.

(Just take a moment to picture that. It's WEIRD. But strangely, kinda cool. Also, Gemma Arterton as Cathy should be.... interesting.)



RELATED NOTE: In my quest to catch up on 2 seasons of GG so I can start on the new episodes, I've now seen "School Lies" (AWWWWW, NATE!) and "A thin line between Chuck and Nate" (BLAIR).

Basically, nothing's exactly changed. Still in love with Dan. Still think Chuck is, like, God or someone. Still convinced that Blair rules the universe (...it's a SETBACK, OK, that's IT). Still dumbfounded by how gorgeous Chace Crawford is.

Oh, one new development. Well, I'm kinda shipping Rufus/Lily so much that every time they ALMOST get back together, and every time something of a Vanderbass nature happens, I keep repeating "3.05, 3.05, 3.05" to myself.

I THINK YOU KNOW WHY. Until I get to that episode, though, I'll just sit back and enjoy how much Serena really, really dislikes having Chuck as a stepbrother.

(edit: random Eastwick icon is there because.. I have no GG icons yet, and also, to remind me that there's new Eastwick to watch.)
trillianastra: (all the good ones are taken gay or ficti)
Well, I've acquired (via the local DVD store), the boxset of GG Season 1, and I've seen the first eight episodes now.

HOOOOOLY SHIT, I LOVE THIS SHOW.

(Brain? what brain? I used to have one of those... but Gossip Girl ate it.)

Impressions:

1. Am utterly in love with Dan at this point.

2. ...in fact, I'm kind of a fan of the Humphreys in general. (Except for Allison.) Incidentally... yeah, Rufus is kinda hot too. Oops.

3. In the space of just eight episodes, I think I'm a diehard Rufus/Lily shipper....

4. Blair Waldorf is either the ruler of the universe, or is going to be the ruler of the universe. For serious. If she gets a white cat and a really big swivel chair in the future, THAT WILL BE WHY. Her lair/centre of power would probably be in some ski resort. Or Paris, maybe.

5. I'm not a Nate/Blair fan. Mostly because a) I'm not a fan of people being forced into relationships to make business relations between their parents easier in general, b) they don't seem to 'click' terribly well, c) ...I think Nate/Jenny is cuter/more awesome (er...), d) well, Nate slept with Blair's best friend, Blair slept with Nate's best friend, and they haven't slept with each other. That might be indicative of a problem...

and of course there's the most important reason of all, which is that Chuck is so obviously in love with Blair, and yes, I ship the hell out of it.

6. Chuck is... um... well... he's Chuck Bass.

7. Currently, I would quite like to hug Nate. For parent- and Blair- related reasons, mostly. Also, damn that boy is gorgeous.
trillianastra: (eastwick roxy)
OK, so my head's kinda *bleurgh* this evening because I spent all day revising for my Film History exam on Tuesday. Thus, I now know waaaaay more about the history of the western and German cinema from 1945-the 1980s that I ever thought I'd need to know.

So... I decided to recharge the brain batteries with some TV. Fair enough.

Thursday is my Criminal Minds day, so that was first. Awesome as usual, and oh deities, if I could stop being obsessed with Hotch right now, that'd be good.

Next up was Eastwick. Which I love too much for words. Also, HOLY SHIT DID WHAT I THINK HAPPENED ACTUALLY JUST HAPPEN? WEIRD, man. Also... NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WILL. (OK, so I sort of really, majorly identify with Joanna. Except for the no-inner-editor thing and the verbal diarrhoea and the got-left-at-the-altar thing. Everything else, though... scarily similar to me. So I get... frustrated. About Will-related issues.)

Also, would be nice if Darryl van freaking Horne could stop haunting my dreams/daydreams/etc. Seriously, I used to be able to think about, y'know, guys other than him. Not so easy now.

And finally, (and this is all [livejournal.com profile] bradeatspeeps's fault)... Gossip Girl. Prior to today, I'd seen all of... two episodes, mostly down to curiosity. But I've been told it's really good, so I gave it another chance.

AND I LOVE IT ALREADY.

I think (at the moment, give me time here people), that my favourite is Dan. He's adorkable, basically.

But Nate seems cool too (on top of being gorgeous) and a certain Mr C. Bass might be sneaking his way into my world... dammit. Also, Serena's brother is awesome.
