From one old friend to another: Terry Pratchett and I met for Sushi in Cardiff the following evening, for Mysterious Reasons That We Are Not Announcing Yet. This is a photograph of us toasting Something Unexplained with champagne.


Excited much?

Copy and Paste if you have enjoyed the blessing of meeting people online that you never would have met any other way. This is my end of the year shout out to the many friends I have never been in the same room with but who have inspired, amused, comforted, encouraged, and touched me in so many ways. I love you people! Here's to another year together!!

Animated icons may be even more fun to make than normal 'still' icons. :D

What is the soundtrack to your fandom? And why?

While I'm not the most musically inclined person around there are still certain songs that remind me/make me think of certain fandoms or the ships within them.

The Avengers
Because I'm Awesome - The Dollyrots -  I love this song for Mrs. Peel. All the lyrics just fit her perfectly. There's no-one more awesome than Mrs. Peel. :)
My Life Would Suck Without You - Kelly Clarkson (Glee Cast Version) - This is my favourite song for Steed/Peel - both awesome on their own but together they're so much more. It's my greatest fandom wish to one day see a Steed/Peel fanvid made to this song.

The Tracks Of My Tears - Smokey Robinson and The Miracles - This is very much David's theme. Head over heels for Maddie since the first time he met her all he wants is a little reciprocity. Always the joker on the outside when in reality he's broken inside.

Don't Fear The Reaper - Blue Oyster Cult - Dean's favourite Mullet-Rock. The whole spirit of the show can be found in this song.

Love Me Dead - Ludo - Thanks to this trailer for the show House always makes me think of this song. It really does fit the character
Teadrop - Massive Attack - The song used for the original theme tune. I love this one for the show a lot more than the replacement score the Australian version of the series has. The whole heartbeat-beat medical angle of the clip fits so much better too.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer

The Album - Sometimes a show does it best themselves. This is without a doubt my favourite CD soundtrack of all time. Listening to this one always takes me back to those highschool days of watching Buffy during its initial run and excitedly discussing it the next day with friends. Love it! :D

Life On Mars
The Album - Another official soundtrack done well. I love so many songs on this one - especially those that relate to Sam and his journey trapped in the past. A good driving album which also suits the show really well. :)

Defying Gravity - Despite belonging to a completely different fandom Firefly is the one that first comes to mind whenever I hear this song because of this truly brilliant fanvid by [livejournal.com profile] y_fish.

Star Trek XI
Circus - though I never would have thought of it myself a little Britney Spears is just perfect for Captain Kirk. This fanvid by [livejournal.com profile] butterfly  shows exactly what made the latest Star Trek movie so very awesome. And anything that can make you actually enjoy Britney Spears is worth a look. :P

Hello, internet. You've been looking a little down, so in between my time climbing mountains, wrestling sharks, saving whale babies and winning eighteen shiny new medals, I've found time to hand-craft this meme, just for you. Because you deserve it, internet. You deserve it.

DAY 30: Saddest character death

Perhaps not the saddest death ever, but Jenny's death from Buffy The Vampire Slayer was one of the first character deaths that really got my attention. This was such a big moment when it happened in the show. It was the first big indication of Joss' 'no character is safe' style of storytelling. It also proved exactly how cruel and terrifyingly evil Angel/Angelus could be. While the death itself is more shocking than sad it's the following scenes that bring the sorrow. Having Giles arrive home to the flowers, music and champagne expecting such joy, all the while not knowing that Jenny was already dead, is just heartbreaking to watch. As is the scene in the alley, in the rain, where it's all Buffy can do to try and comfort him and try to stop him from getting himself killed. I love that scene so much. It kills me every time. :(

DAY 29: Current TV show obsession

*I've only see up to 'The Lodger' so no spoilers for the finale please.*

This season of Doctor Who was the one television show I was most excited about this year. I've watched New!Who from the start but never really liked it all that much. The actors were great and some of the stories were very enjoyable but I just don't like RTD's writing. I was more than over the moon when I heard that Stephen Moffat would be taking control of the show this series. I've always loved Moffat's work (see my Press Gang ramblings) and his 'The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances' two-parter is still my favourite New!Who story so far. I wasn't sure how I felt about Matt Smith as Eleven but after seeing the season opener I fell completely in love with him. In that one episode he became my Doctor. So scruffy and twitchy and adorable. Amy is also so very awesome. I love the story of their first meeting, and how she came attached so she spends more of her time kicking butt than pining over The Doctor. (Sure she still tried to jump him that one time but I would have too given the chance. :P) With a few exceptions I've definitely enjoyed this series more than all those before it. From what I've heard the response to the finale has been quite positive and nothing less than I'd expect from the awesomeness of Mr. Moffat. Can't wait to see how it all ends. :D

Also a big thank-you to whomever wrote 'The Lodger' for such blatant fan service.

DAY 28: First TV show obsession

The first show I remember really getting into many years ago was Buffy The Vampire Slayer. I caught this one when it first aired back in 1997 and thought it was awesome. I loved that it was a show about normal kids just trying to get through school who had to deal with normal problems, all the while trying to keep the whole world safe from vampires, demons and all kinds of other monsters. It probably helped that I first started highschool in '97 and was really able to relate to the characters and their more normal trials. I loved being able to grow up with this show through the years. And while I didn't enjoy the later series as much as the earlier ones, it was always well written, funny, full of likeable characters and had moments that shocked, made you laugh and made you cry right up to the end. This show is a classic and always will be. :)

Favourite Characters: Giles, Willow, Spike, Oz
Favourite Episodes: Restless, Hush, Innocence, Halloween, Once More With Feeling (and many, many more :P )

DAY 27: Best pilot episode

Even though it's a few years old now I still think Season 1 of Veronica Mars had one of the strongest first seasons of any television show ever. A lot of that had to do with first episode. There was so much information that needed to be covered in this first episode (Who is Veronica Mars? Why is she the way she is?) including two major season long plot lines (Who murdered her best friend Lily? Who raped Veronica?) and more importantly all the complex social connections between the rich kids, the not so rich kids, the bikers, the local law enforcement, etc. and how Veronica fits into all of it. A nice tight episode that manages to fit in an enormous amount of important information in a way that never makes it feel like boring exposition. I also love how the whole style of the show - from the colouring to the snappy dialogue and the fantastic use of a voice-over - is set up in this episode. Very cleverly written and well worth watching. I love this episode for so perfectly setting up one of the best and most well written television series of the past decade.

"You know what they say. Veronica Mars, she's a marshmallow."

DAY 26: OMG WTF? Season finale

It's hard to talk about OMG WTF television and not mention Lost. While any of the Lost finales (and in fact every Lost episode ever) could easily fit into this category I think I'll always like the Season 3 finale 'Through The Looking Glassthe most. It may not have been the biggest or most exciting of Lost's finales but that final revelation that Jack's flash-back was in fact a flash-forward was a total game changer. The reveal flipped the format of the series upside down and gave the series a fresh new feel just when it needed it the most. I quite like stories like this where they give you an answer before you know the question. Who gets off the island and how? Charlie's 'Not Penny's Boat' message also raised more questions. Who else knew of the island and how/where to find it? A very enjoyable finale that was the first Lost finale that actually had me waiting in anticipation for the next series to start. :)

DAY 25: A show you plan on watching (old or new)

I've heard nothing but great things about Chuck since it first started. I've seen the DVDs in store a couple of times but never bought them. One of our free-to-air stations (99/GO!) finally started airing this show about a month ago. I tuned in to see what all the fuss is about. We're only about 5-6 episodes into the first season but already I'm a little bit in love with Chuck (both the show and the character). Chuck is quite adorable, his sister and Captain Awesome are indeed awesome, the Nerd Herd are a bunch of fun, and who doesn't love Adam Baldwin - especially when he's playing the gruff tough guy. Will definitely keep watching this one. :)
