I PASSED MY TEST!!!




LOL, whew, now I can stop worrying about it.  I know some of you are sick of hearing about it!  Anyway, I've not been doing anything productive on the internets for a while now, but there are a few things that I've enjoyed lately that I wanted to share.

First, I have no idea what the proper etiquette for pimping works that you've beta'd is, but I'm gonna do it anyway because it's an awesome fic!  (And my beta efforts were mostly "OMG, I LOVE IT!" and she did all the work, so it hardly counts as betaing, lol): 

Roll Away Your Stone, I'll Roll Away Mine by [livejournal.com profile] thalialunacy , Star Trek 2009, Kirk/McCoy, NC-17
You guys, I just love everything about this fic.  Seriously, I can't even really tell you all the things I love without writing a book about it.  Which I did, and sent to Thalia, but I don't think ya'll want to read it too.  So I'll shorten it to a few bullet points:
  • I love the way she plays with the accepted fannish characterizations for the boys with this fic.  It's smart and refreshing, and I loved it.
  • The whole damn thing is smart.  I mean, the dialog, the way she uses fannish cliches, the way she weaves their backstory in, everything.  She makes leaps and expects us to be able to follow, and it works.
  • Stuff like...  Oh hell, I can't even quote anything because every sentence is loaded, and quoting anything will give something away.  Just know that I love her descriptive language.

Coming Closer by [livejournal.com profile] colls :  Pretty, angsty Karl from DOOM!  The vidder really made great use of the footage, I think.  And, it's Karl's pretty face.  What's not to love?

Common Knowledge by [livejournal.com profile] elucreh : J2 RPS, R (Maybe NC-17?), characters discover fanfic
Summary: Jared, your fangirls. Fangirls, I believe you already know Jared. Better than he knows himself.
This is so funny, and so damn cute!  It's one of the best "characters discover fanfic" fics I've read.  And even though there aren't many of those, this one is still amazing.  Plus, it celebrates the SPN/J2 fan, and fandom in general, and it made me squeeful to read it.

This video has made me laugh several times over the last week.  YOU ARE NOT YOUR GLITTERY EYE MAKEUP!!



And now, I'm off to have dinner, with a few martini's for good measure.  Well, one, because I'm a lightweight.  Maybe two, because it's a celebration!  And then I'll try and drop by the party post at [livejournal.com profile] jim_and_bones , because it looks like fun.  How are you guys?

Well, more like my quick thoughts on them.

The Price of Milk
Absurd: Yes
Quirky: Hell yes
Adorable: Yes
I loved Karl in this, he was just adorable.  Especially in the beginning when they are all in love, and especially in the opening credits when he's sleeping with that ridiculous bed head.  I LOVED the bit with her swimming in the milk.  His face when he found her was priceless, and then got mad at her, then jumped in with her, and it was just the cutest thing ever.  And I think that might have actually been his butt.  I mean, that's a pretty small tank, how many grown men can you hide in it?  The whole befuddled, unlucky in love thing looked good on him, poor thing, but I'm glad it ended well for them.
Plus, I squeed when I saw Fran Walsh was a script consultant.  I guess that's the beauty of watching films from a small country, there is bound to be some overlap.
Doom
Yeah, Karl with a big ass gun fucking shit up works for me.  I really liked him in this- it was a hell of a contrast from Milk.  He looked good and his acting with 'Samantha' was realistic and the best part of the movie.  Well, other than stuff blowing up it was really the only part of the movie, so they carried it well.  I also liked Rosamund Pike as his sister.  I thought she was quite believable, and it was fun to put more of a face to the actress who has been 'cast' as Nurse Chapel for the McChapel team on Ship Wars.  The Rock was fun to watch too, and I like his larger-than-life personality.  It was good to see the origin of all those Reaper!Bones fics, although I think I've only read, like, one of them.  Doom and Trek make an interesting crossover, one that I think actually works well.  Doom isn't the greatest movie ever made, but it was pretty good entertainment.

There you have it.  I have a class for half a day tomorrow, and then more studying.  And then reading and voting on the Jones fics.
