Obviously I love my comedies :) I'm super excited for The Mindy Project because I've loooved Mindy Kaling for a long time ever since I fell in love with the episode, The Dundies on The Office. And then I met her at a con and she was super nice to me, then I met her again at a WGA rally and she hugged me/remembered me and then I met her at my book signing and she remembered me again :) I loved her book, I think she's hilarious and I thought the show was super funny and it's so nice having a show with fun pop culture references that I love and centered around romance. I also love The New Normal mostly for David/Bryan, I looove seeing a gay couple on my screen each week that kiss a lot and Bryan cracks me up. I like the mom and Shania too but the other characters dont work for me much so I'm hoping for better. Partners is not as funny but I looove Michael Urie and having another main gay couple on my screen each week so I'm enjoying it.
Loving Parks and Recreation a lot too, LESLIE's back!! I'm really loving her character development so far. And of course I'm love Glee since they fixed the finale and it's so nice to have my favorite characters back. I do miss the ones that we don't see much (Santana!) but I love Jake (omg so cute) and Marley and most especially UNIQUE who helps make the episode for me now that I'm not getting as much Kurt/Blaine. Loving Kurt's plotline though, it's so great to see him happy and growing. I also finished Teen Wolf and LOVED it. Especially the second season. I pretty much slash all the guys but my favorites at the moment is Derek/Stiles (of course), Jackson/Scott, Derek/Jackson, Derek/Scott and Peter with any of the guys. Even Lydia's dad is slashy with the guys, I mean, come on. The girls sadly don't really do it for me but I enjoyed Allison's plotline in S2 and I have hopes Lydia will be back to her awesome self next season. My favorite is still Kate because I do love my badass (somewhat evil...) women. I specifically did Teen Wolf before Once Upon a Time because I knew OUAT has plenty of awesome women...
Which is one of the many reasons I LOVE Once Upon a Time. It's so cool to see so many great, active and non-love interest women in the spotlight, sometimes I still can't believe it. I watched the Pilot ages ago and I loved Regina a lot (SURPRISE) but because I haaaaated Cameron on House, it was really hard for me to get past my Jennifer Morrison issues. Yeeeeeah that's (mostly) gone now. After watching flummery's amazing Once Upon a Time vid at Vividcon, I knew I had to watch the show and I quickly fell in love with it. By the time Emma was cutting down apple trees, I loved her and by the time Regina was being sexy making comments like "Enjoy the shirt because it's the last thing you'll get" (OMG), I was shipping Regina/Emma (SWAN QUEEN)!!
It's funny because the other day I was making a list of my OTPs and I realized I had almost no femslash couples. Which makes me sad because it's not intentional or anything, I just haven't found any that I'm obsessive about. After thinking about it, I realized it's hard for me because I find it hard to ship two women who are friends in a BFF, happy together, sweet way because I don't find it sexy and it seems too close to just an actual friendship to me. To add to that, I tend to love women who are more...I hate using these kind of words but masculine, more badass, kickass women who aren't into talking all about their feelings and who are damaged, conflicted and have issues. That's what I find sexy and interesting and sadly in this TV/movie landscape it's hard to find ONE women like that, it's even harder to find TWO women like that in the same fandom and it's really hard to find two women who have an actual layered relationship with a dynamic with enough similarities and differences to make things interesting (that I connect to). So I feel so incredibly lucky to find Regina and Emma that meet all that criteria for me and that have BLAZING sexual chemistry (omg too hot) and that have FIGHTS AGAINST WALLS (bulletproof kink that hit me so much during Teen Wolf) and yet genuinely care about each other even if a lot of it is started by Henry. What I love about Regina and Emma together is it makes PERFECT sense within the context of the show, by getting together, Henry has two moms who don't have to fight over him, it forgives Snow White because although she took her away Regina's chance at love, she then gave her TRUE LOVE back so they can all be a happy family (with a little bitterness because fun) and they can all live happy ever after. At least that's the way I see it.
( Spoilers for Once Upon a Time S1 and 201 )
Regina/Emma fic recs!
Halfway Through The Wood by fictorium: This is my favorite fic so far, it's an AU based on the TV show Awake where Emma "died" in one world and Henry "died" in another word. It just gets to me emotionally and it pushes all my Swan Queen buttons.
somewhere, someone must know the ending by maleficently: OMG this fic!! AU where there is no curse, just Storybrooke and Regina and Emma were in a serious relationship and then broke up and now Henry wants them back together so he *imagines* the curse. It's a WIP but it's SO GOOD and I constantly get super excited when it's updated which is fairly often.
A Queen Without Power by buffied: Picks up after the S1 finale and has an AMAZING slow burn that just killed me completely with love. It's a WIP but still is being regularly updated, so worth it.
Thicker Than Oceans by adventurepants: Super, super cute Regina/Emma in a relationship fic with my favorite Snow yet. Love it!
Paint It Black by wily_one24: OMG this fic. This is Evil Queen/Emma and it is put as "Exteme dub-con" which should not be taken lightly. That being said, I looooved it and it's really hot and fucked up (which makes it hot) and it's very, very long and fun. Definitely an interesting take on their relationship.
I have many more fic recs but for now that's fine. I haven't devoured fic this much in a long time so it's fun. I'm also making a Swan Queen vid right now which is so much fun. It keeps taking a long time to finish but that's vidding for you. It definitely different from my normal style but in a good way and I'm learning a lot. I realized the other day I haven't had a TV OTP in a LONG time, Kurt/Blaine (less so) and House/Wilson were the last so this is very exciting...and scary considering how weird it is to get things week to week. But thankfully on Sundays I also have another amazing show to watch...Homeland! SO happy with the Emmy wins, soooo well deserved and I was so happy to see Mad Men finally beat. I love the show but S5 did not deserve Best Drama at all and if it couldn't be Breaking Bad, Homeland is my next choice.
( Spoilers for Homeland S1-201 )
I'm dying to keep working on my Carrie vid now. Swan Queen vid first then hopefully I can finish it before Festivids. So excited for festivids! I can't wait to see all the vids for small fandoms and I have plenty I'd love to make. If only vidding didn't take so loooong. Or I had more time in the day.
