{ there's no poetry in this soul }  

♥    ♥

GUUUUYS! My week off work so far has been all kinds of awesome for the simple fact that I've been doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING IMPORTANT ASDFGHJ.

I'm feeling so chilled and happy and productive, which is a especially fantastic seeing as I actually have time to do something with this insitent itch to do things, like write. I've been working on that Inception/Mario fusion I mentioned a few weeks back and I'm having glorious amounts of fun with it :D and for ~research purposes I have of course being playing copious amounts of Super Mario on my DS (I actually completed the damn thing, haha, finally!). Life is good guys. Sooooo good right now. I don't even want to think about having to go back to work come Monday! D:

How've things been with you lot? I would apologise for being all MIA on ya'll again but well, what's an impromptu hiatus between friends? XD Anything new going on? I've been to see three movies this week: Paul, The Rite, and Drive Angry 3D all of which were tres awesome in their own individual ways, and I'm hoping to drag someone out to see The Adjustment Bureau this weekend. Anyone else planning to see it? I'm intrigued by their likening it to Inception and stealing the men from Fringe to boot.

Also, Criminal Minds: who's been watching!? GUUUUYS. WE NEED TO TALK! asdfghjkl. Not just about Reid (♥_♥) and Prentiss (♥_♥), but how betrayed I feel by Seaver (>_<) right now after 6.16 because damnit I really did like her. Also, Criminal Minds: Suspect Behaviour: does anyone actually like it? :/ also also I did not start writing a ridiculously cliche Reid used to be a model before he joined the FBI fic. honest!

And then there's the matter of Supernatural... OMG WHAT IS HAPPENING TO MY SHOW!? I went three weeks without watching it (and without the usual withdrawal symptoms usually associated with missing an episode) and then when I could finally be bothered to catch up, well... it didn't really feel like it was worth almost three hours of my life. LE SIGH. I think I'm falling out of love with my show guys. Not even Misha's sheer awesomeness is making me want to watch it. PLS SEND HELP ASAP.
mood: hyperhyper

I haven't seen any Criminal Minds past 6x09 :'( I don't know about Suspect Behavior. I've been putting off watching it incase it sucks then they will have made cuts to the main show for bugger all.

SPN's got weird. There are these moments where you think that it's going to be amazing but then it goes all crappy for a bit. Hopefully it can redeem itself.

BTW - I'm still keeping Gube :P
Campaspe: Criminal Minds \\ Gube; MWAH!cs_whitewolf on March 4th, 2011 04:31 pm (UTC)

CM:Suspect Behaviour does suck. But I've justified watching so far with the knowledge that my viewing it won't count towards their viewing figures. Apparently they've lost quite alot of viewers since it started!

It's gotten very weird! I'm just not loving it as much as I used to :S I keep thinking that maybe they should just have ended it last season after all. In particular I hate how bitchy Dean's become, especially in regards to Castiel. I mean, he was always kind of a dick but this season he's just got so much worse! And let's not even talk about Sam. He's making me want to stab him with hot pokers right now. grrr. I don't even find their latest storyline any good (the "Mother" of all? Really!? PFFFF)

absinthefairy88absinthefairy88 on March 4th, 2011 04:45 pm (UTC)
It's not my fault! The site I was using now make you pay to watch and my back up one doesn't have the episodes! I can't D/L them either cos I don't have my own computer! *cries*

I don't see the point in it tbh. It basically the same show with different people. At least with likes of CSI or L&O they took it and put it in different locations but with this they go everywhere anyway so why do it?

I honestly don't know WTF is going on with it. No wonder the CW seem to be holding off confirming whether or not we're getting a 7th season or not.

I hate you :P I reckon whoever meets him first gets dibs.

daylyn: CM reid prentiss kidnapped_batgurl88daylyn on March 4th, 2011 06:25 pm (UTC)
Caspe! I'm glad you're having such a fabulous week off. Sometimes doing nothing important is the Best Thing EVAR!

And CM... OMG, OMG... *flails* The last two episodes have definitely been the best of the season. Reid with the autistic boy was made of so much win. (The hand porn! The side-by-side playing! And him buying the keyboard at the end of the episode... *swoons*) And Prentiss being so incredibly bad ass and wonderful (and Prentiss and Reid... with Reid sharing his secret... OMG *flails some more*) I think Paget did such an awesome acting in that last episode; you could really see (and feel) the emotion she was conveying. Of course, the better job that Paget does in showing how utterly awesome Prentiss is, the more pissed off I get at CBS for what they did to her. *shakes fist* I'm so incredibly annoyed that they are getting rid of her. (Damn you, CBS, damn you!)

As for Seaver... you know, I'm really trying to like her, but they make it incredibly hard. I think they have no idea what to do with that character, and she's kind of there with no sense of purpose. (And then she went and insulted my Reid... oh no, I'm just not going to stand for that. She hasn't earned that right yet. She's not family.)

I don't know if you saw the coming attraction for the next episode (the one directed by MGG! Yay!!!! And Paget's last one. Boo...), but there's this scene where Reid says, "Why would she run? We're her family," and he looks so hearbroken and lost... Yeah, I just want to smish him. God, when they do this right, they really know how to push my buttons.

As for SB, I refuse to watch it. I just... meh. The CBS head essentially admitted that all the cast changes in CM were because of the spin-off (I don't know if that's really true, but that's the current party line). I refuse to reward such bad behavior to my show by watching the one that canibalized it. There was no reason to make the changes to CM that they did (and it makes no sense... if you're trying to promote a spin-off, wouldn't you want the original to be strong, not shrouded in controversy). For whatever reason, it seems that CBS and the producers are treating the original cast/crew badly and, as such, I refuse to watch their current infatuation. Besides, "The Fight" really was the worst episode on CM, so I don't feel that I'm missing much. (Although, if they hadn't treated AJ and Paget so badly (and if there weren't rumors about problems in the contract negotiation for Thomas Gibson and Shemar Moore), I probably would have watched, but now I won't.) There's also a little part of me that's pretty damn happy that SB is losing viewers.

Wow, that was a lot of ranting on my part. Sorry!!!

As for my life, well, I'm moving out of where I live at the end of the month, since I really can't afford it anymore. I just have no idea where I'm moving to. Still looking for a job. I had a interview for a job that I actually want (even if the location isn't that great, it would require moving about 225 miles from where I currently live), but I won't hear about that for a few weeks. If that doesn't work out... I honestly have no idea what I'm doing. So, I guess my life continues to remain stressful and confusing.

But I'm glad to hear that yours is awesome!

Campaspe: Criminal Minds \\ Reid; so lifelikecs_whitewolf on March 4th, 2011 07:13 pm (UTC)
Hello, my darling! And how are you!? ::snugs:: Man, cannot believe things are still up in the air with regards to getting a job/moving D: fail! I hope you have some good luck with the interview- at least that'll give you a start, even if it's not where you want to be!

XD I'll be back to boredom come next week I'm sure. But I shouldn't complaint really, especially seeing as I've had such a grand time of things this week! ...only four months till my next week off! haha.

ASDFGHJK CM!!! it's been so very awesome omg, I completely adored the episode with Reid and Sammy and the way Reid took his time to speak with him and try to understand what he was trying to say- I didn't see any of this "Reid effect" in play ;) he was just... amazing. The episode actually made me flashback to one of the first episodes of CM where the ubsub commented that Reid had "autistic tendencies" (or something similar). I just found the whole idea/story fascinating. That and the gratuitous hand porn was very much appreciated ;D I am not now thinking about Reid teaching himself keyboard and then joining a grunge-rock band. Nope. Not at all.

I'm loving this Prentiss arc entirely (even if we're going to get our hearts ripped out come the end of it!) I think Prentiss has been beyond fabulous though I am glad that despite her very best efforts people are noticing that things just aren't right with her. As for that scene between her and Reid? OMG LOVE. I just. there are no words. The sheer trust Reid must have in her to tell her his secret and know that she won't tell the others? ::flaily hands:: DON'T LEAVE US PRENTISS!

I've seen the preview for the next episode and yeah, Reid totally tugged at my heartstrings with that line D: he all but made me cry when JJ left and I have such a horrible feeling I'm going to be doubly upset after this next episode(s). (SCREW YOU CBS AND YOUR BULLSHIT).

Seaver. Ah yes. Her. I really liked her, I did. I kept an open mind, didn't want to hate her on principle and she seemed pretty okay. And then she went and insulted Reid like that, after asking him the question in the first place. What a complete and utter bitch. It's like you said, she's not part of the family yet. She has absolutely no right to do that. To be honest, I don't understand why they had her say it- surely to get people to like and accept her character, they shouldn't have her insulting one of the most popular characters on the show, right? Maybe they thought she'd fit in with the rest of the team if she did? :S

CM:SB is rubbish. I wouldn't recommend it. I justified trying out the first couple of episodes due to the fact that my watching it doesn't count towards any viewing figures ;D but it's really been such a waste of time. Why on earth did they think making a spin off was a good idea? And I thought they were trying to "man" up the show, which is why they wanted rid of JJ/Prentiss, but they've basically got the exact same set-up that our show has >:| FAIL.

Oh, what's this about TG and SM's contracts? I know there was a poll going around one of the CM feeds about whether you'd watch the show if either of them left (WTF IS GOING ON!?) but I didn't think it was a serious issue :S

haha. ranting is A-Okay! Especially when it concerns CM! :D sometimes you just need to get it off your chest!
daylyn: CM reid never been a model_madloridaylyn on March 4th, 2011 08:03 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I can't believe that things are still up in the air with me either. I'm just like, "C'mon, Universe, can't something settle in my life?" Well, soon (very soon) I have to make some sort of decision, which I guess I've been avoiding. I'm quite good at avoidance, actually. It's one of my strong traits. ;)

I LOVED Reid's connection to Sammy. Just LOVED it. And yeah, I do think his understanding is interesting when compared with his "autistic tendencies" as noted by the UnSub in season 1. Oh, and I also loved Rossi being so compassionate to the aunt and having all this insight into autistic kids. (I think that JM, in RL, has an autistic child... I also wonder if Rossi's character has some sort of knowledge in his past as well. Hmmm....)

Oh, and Reid joining a grunge rock band as a keyboardist is full of awesome. I'd totally read that. And I forgot that I want to read your "Reid as model" fic, 'cause... yeah... there can never be too many "Reid as model" fics in this world.

And Prentiss. Oh Prentiss. I love how she's trying to hide everything from her co-workers... but it's not really working, is it? No, your family knows when something is wrong (especially if your family is a bunch of profilers). And I love how Rossi, Garcia, Morgan AND Reid all tried to reach out to her. The only one who really didn't get a chance was Hotch... and he was too busy calling meeings in the super secret FBI bunker with evil government contractors. And organizing a joint task force. Dann, he's a busy bee (oh, and how awesome was the scene with Rossi where he and Hotch discussed Strauss... and how she'll never take a vacation again since she was missing all the Important Shit).

Oh Prentiss, don't leave us!!!!!

(Damn you, CBS! Feel my rage!)

Seaver... oh, Seaver. Look, RN seems like a lovely person and this whole shitstorm is certainly not her fault. But, after spending five seasons saying the BAU is the elite of the elite and how only the best get in, having an intern running around kind of makes no sense. Especially since she's not really doing anything (except insulting my Reid... and that's Just Not Right). Although I did like Hotch ordering her around in this past episode ("Seaver, call this... Seaver, hang up!") Yeah, Hotch is super-agent mode is such an awesome thing. I also loved him getting the secrets out of the evil government contractor. Because Hotch just threatening to give someone "the glare" makes them start spilling their secrets.

I'm just avoiding SB existence. 'Cause... yeah... I kind of having nothing to say about it other than they burned me as a viewer due to their shitty behavior to the show I love.

As for TG and SM's contracts, both of them are up at the end of this year, and both of them are (purportedly) currently negotiating new contracts. Now, it could just be the gossip columns starting crap, but (purportedly) the negotiations are nowhere near settling. That could be common Hollywood negotiation strategy, and likely they won't settle until this summer. But... still... CBS has already shown that they are willing to screw over this show, so who knows what's going to happen. That was sort of the point of the poll, I think, to let CBS know how much the fans value these actors BEFORE they get fired.

Oh, and reportedly MGG and JM's contracts are up at the end of season 7 (if there is a season 7, which seems likely since the ratings are pretty strong here in the U.S.... even going up against the latest season of American Idol which started a bit over a month ago). (Purportedly) MGG, at least, will be seeking more money, since I think he's one of the lowest paid actors on the show (since he was a complete unknown when the show started) and he's now definitely a fan favorite. I swear, if they get rid of Hotch and/or Reid I'm going to... um... do something drastic and full of ranting (and likely stop watching).

Whew! It seems I still had tons more ranting inside of me. :)

That Reid/Prentiss moment was so amazing! I loved it. I wonder if she's for him now what JJ used to be, a person he can tell everything... I'm really happy to see that this storyline is not over yet. Wonder what will come next. *excited*

What did Seaver do? o.O

What do you think about Prentiss not telling them anything at all? I understand her a bit after what she told Morgan in the car but she should know by now that they would do anything to help her. It was a bit lame. :/
Campaspe: Criminal Minds \\ Reid; phwoar.cs_whitewolf on March 4th, 2011 08:51 pm (UTC)
it was just far too awesome. I was so happy that he finally told someone, and that it showed just how much they trusted each other- Reid enough to tell her and Prentiss enough not to tell <33 ...though I suppose it'd be a bit pot/kettle if she told anyone Reid's secrets when she's quite clearly trying to hide her own huge ass one! ...I think Prentiss is just trying to protect them. I think she's wrong, of course, and I agree that she should just tell them so that they can help her, instead of trying to go this alone, but I do understand why she's trying to keep it all to herself. <33

Have you seen any of the promo pics for next weeks episode yet?

asdfghjkl >:| it's at the beginning of 6.16 when they're on the jet talking about Bill&Ted vs Doctor Who and Seaver cuts Reid off with "I'm really sorry" and Reid asked, "What for" and she says "For asking" and I HAVE ACTUAL RAGE. Mostly because she asked the question Reid was answering in the first place, but also because she's definitely not part of the family just yet and doesn't get to do that to Reid! GRRR. I dunno, I just got really defensive after that moment and had to pause my viewing in order to GAPE SPEECHLESSLY at her audacity.

(( total icon love btw <33 ))

I am giggling at the Mario fusion. How is the PB/TW crossover coming? *g*
Campaspe: Misc \\ Sorry Mariocs_whitewolf on March 4th, 2011 09:01 pm (UTC)
HOORAY INDEED! I haven't enjoyed myself this much in months XD

the fusion is going to be epic! (hopefiully) I'm having so much fun "researching" and writing ;D

ahem. yes. well. there were ~plans to write some more this week but er. I didn't? That said, because I love you and you're a terrible enabler when it comes to this verse (don't ever stop! I may never get anything done otherwise XD) you get a free snippet! YAAAAY?

“Ianto!” Gwen’s voice shrilled high with excitement the instant he stepped into Torchwood. Ianto only had a half-second to process the blur of rainbow coloured dreadlocks heading his way before he was side-tackled, Gwen grabbing a hold of him like some kind of limpet.

“Oomph!” Ianto choked out, dropping the folder he was carrying to better grab at Gwen and stop them both from tumbling over and onto the floor. Before he could even consider dropping the tray of coffees he’d been holding in his other hand, Toshiko miraculously appeared at his side and relieved him of it. He threw her a grateful smile from behind Gwen’s dreads.

“Not that I’m not happy to see you too, Gwen, but what’s with all the love?” Ianto asked, placing his now free hand on Gwen’s waist.

Gwen pulled away just a little, an impish grin on her face as she replied: “What? Can’t a girl be glad to see you?”

“I’ve only been gone a month,” Ianto returned, swallowing a smile.

Gwen’s eyes widened comically, “but a month is such a long time, Yan!”

Ianto narrowed his eyes at the use of his nickname. “Right, what’s going on?”

Gwen fluttered her lashes innocently. Ianto turned his gaze to Toshiko and watched as her mouth twitched, as though she were trying very hard not to show her amusement.

“Did Jack break the coffee machine again?” Ianto asked, despairingly. “Please don’t tell me he broke it again?”

“Um, well, actually he did but that’s not why-,” Gwen broke off, grinning mischievously before burrowing her head back against Ianto’s neck.

Ianto spluttered. He didn’t know whether to be upset at Jack (every time he went away! It’s not that Ianto didn’t appreciate getting a brand new coffee machine every year, but the reasons why he ended up getting one were getting beyond ridiculous. And he hadn’t even thought to wear ‘The Cute Suite’ today. Damnit.) or intrigued by Gwen’s odd behaviour (which, lets be honest, was odd at the best of times, but even with his having been in Cardiff for his annual monthly visit, this level of odd was… well, odd, even for her.).

“Gwen,” a new voice called out and Ianto smiled into Gwen’s dreads, recognising the voice as belonging to Jack. “Not that it doesn’t please me greatly to see you wrapped around Ianto like that, but seeing as he’s mine and all I think first dibs on molestation should go to me.”

Ianto’s face twisted into an expression of affront at Jack’s words whilst Gwen slowly extracted herself from him with an exaggerated moan of distress.

“But Jack,” she moaned, drawing out his name with a whine, “you get him all the time.”

“Honey, you couldn’t handle him even half of the time.” Jack smirked, waggling his eyebrows. Ianto felt himself flush at the comment and Gwen let out gasp of delight, pinching at his cheek.

Ianto smacked her hand away. “Okay, enough,” Ianto said, pinching at the bridge of his nose and gesturing vaguely in Toshiko’s direction. “I’m going to need more coffee if this is how today is going to be.”

Instead of coffee he got an armful of Jack instead, the other man slipping himself easily into Ianto’s personal space with a grin predatory enough to send shivers of want running up Ianto’s spine.

“Really, sir, I hardly think this type of greeting- from anyone,” he sent a look towards Gwen who continued to grin impishly at him, “-is at all appropriate.” He met Jack’s gaze with raised eyebrows.

“Ah, Ianto, I have so missed those glorious Welsh vowels of yours,” Jack muttered, nuzzling his lips against Ianto’s ear.

“Mmm,” Ianto hummed, “have you missed those sexual harassment forms too?” He asked even as his arms came up to wrap themselves around Jack’s shoulders.

Glad to see your enjoying your time off. :P It's brilliant when that happens, I think I've got another week off at end of March, am heading out to Butlins (yes am that classy. :P) with my mum and sister. :P

Not see CM: Suspect Behaviour, really just keep skimming over it, I has enough shows to watch without adding to my pile, plus one show to catch up on. So no, I've not seen it, but then again I did see normal CM till was talked into it. ;)

SPN has been very, not all there this season, its not its worse but it could be better. Are you all caught up with the episodes now?
Campaspe: Criminal Minds \\ Reid; chess handscs_whitewolf on March 4th, 2011 10:04 pm (UTC)
:D I've never been to Butlins so I can't really judge you for that! Although, I've seen the tv ads for it and they make it look pretty epic! haha. Do enjoy!

Yeah. I wouldn't recommend watching CM:SB. It's just not up to par with the original show. Just stick to Criminal Minds which is very awesome! heh.

I just don't know what's going on with SPN right now :S just when you think things are getting better they curveball and it goes a bit rubbish again :S yeah I'm all caught up now but the thought of watching more is just tedious!
Joulez217: TVD - DSjoulez217 on March 4th, 2011 10:10 pm (UTC)
LOL! The TV ads never do it justice. :P I will try, definitely. :P

Which is strange that CM:SB isn't up to par, especially wih a big name in it. Yeah spin offs are never very good than the originals, I like originals better. :)

Ditto, there is a lot left to be answered this season and we're what, episode 16? Maybe the writers were having off days they wrote them rubbishy episodes. Who knows. Am hoping it'll get better, hoping.

Hey woman, I loved Paul so much :) all the little geeky jokes.

Can't belive I'm kind of shipping Emily/Reid... especialy after this weeks ep and now we need to wait 2 weeks for the ep the Gube directed:(
Campaspe: Criminal Minds \\ Reid; O NOES!cs_whitewolf on March 5th, 2011 06:07 pm (UTC)
Heya! Paul was awesome omg! I kept thinking "I should be there this year!" when I saw all the SDCC stuff XD if I ever go over I'm totally doing the same route as the boys did, haha.

:D Emily/Reid FTW! I don't ship it outside the show but I do love them both very much! D: though I am very much dreading what's about to happen. NOOOOOOOO D: D: D:
