I kind of want to write Hustle fanfiction. Possibly cross it with White Collar. People, give me drabble prompts to do that?

Drabbles only; I do not have what it takes to write out a full con.
fan_elune: (being human: mitchell)
Being Human, the pilot: vampire Mitchell made me believe he was a couple-of-century-old vampire, and now something apart from humanity. I should watch that pilot again, I loved it so much.
Being Human, the series: vampire Mitchell was a lot more human. It was a different take on it. Not a bad one; just not the one I preferred.
Being Human (US): vampire Aidan bores me to tears. )

I don't know if it's just me, but I don't think I'm going to keep watching.

Gakked from [ profile] the_grynne and [ profile] shadesofbrixton:

Pick a character I write, and I will give you the top five ideas/concepts/other I keep in mind while writing that character that I believe are essential to depicting them accurately. This includes both original characters, characters I RP and characters about whom I write fanfic.
fan_elune: (writing)
To celebrate the fact that I have just written a tiny minuscule fic, after so long spent not ficcing, people, ask me for drabbles before the writer's block comes back.

Fandoms I will write for, in no particular order: Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Dollhouse, Misfits, Skins (preferably the 'old' guys), Sherlock, Harry Potter, The Authority, Lucifer Box, the Nightrunners, Warchild and co, Alias, Spooks, Heroes (up until Adam's death), A Knight's Tale, Battlestar Galactica, Being Human (the original pilot only), Pitch Black, Dark Angel, Doctor Who/Torchwood, The Lord of the Rings, the Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, Chuck, Sons of Anarchy, Terminator: the Sarah Connor Chronicles, True Blood, Shakespeare in Love...

I'm going to stop listing fandoms. Most of you know what you can ask from me. Ask me for a fandom, specific characters if you want, and give me a prompt.

Pretty please?

Title: The Killing Moon
Fandom: Misfits
Pairing: Simon/Alisha
Rating: PG
Summary: Fate / Up against your will / Through the thick and thin / He will wait until / You give yourself to him
Notes: Spoilers up to Misfits 2x04. Lyrics from Echo & The Bunnymen's 'The Killing Moon'.

I know it must be the killing time Unwillingly mine )
fan_elune: (oz: love that fucking dares)
I am IN LOVE with Misfits, people, and if they screw this up I will cry. But it is so good so far.

Major spoilers for Misfits 2x03. )

You will undoubtedly have heard me complain about translation mistakes in TV shows again and again. This is another instance, except this time, I'm going to give the script of what is said in English, and then backtranslate the French version into English again. You guys can decide for yourself exactly how much that translator sucks.

Spoilers for Stargate: Atlantis 5x16, in case someone still cares. )
fan_elune: (sparkle motion!)
I have just realised that I had started to take Hellcats far too seriously. Hellcats is supposed to be my fun, mindless hour of tv, complete with Gale Harold occasional goodness and, given last week's episode, surprise David Hewlett goodness.

Except that after this week's, I am left wanting to throw something at the writers. )

Somewhat related, and because I never pimped this here: Cheek's "Don't be a dick" video on gay marriage, and his "It gets better" video. I think both are spot on.
fan_elune: (sparkle motion!)
Stefan: You're staring.
Elena: I'm gazing.
Stefan: It's creepy.
Elena: It's romantic.

When I say that the Vampire Diaries are the opposite of Twilight... Anyone else getting bored with the Diaries?

Now, Supernatural. Who else though last week's was the best episode ever, and so, so, so long overdue? (I haven't watched this week's yet. Don't spoil me!)
fan_elune: (tb: tears of blood)
It's been ages since I updated this journal, and I don't even really know what I wanna write in it, just that a simple tweet isn't enough for this. "RIP, Laurent Terzieff" just wouldn't cut it.

Laurent who? Most of you will ask. Laurent Terzieff was a bloody amazing stage actor and director. He had a reputation in French theatre and the best thing was that he deserved it.

There's this gorgeous portrait of him when he was young here.

I saw him on stage only once, for L'Habilleur, the play by Ronald Hardwood (The Dresser). He was magnificent. I went with Stef, who knew Laurent for having worked with him, and I was so relieved that we didn't go backstage, simply because unlike most actors Stef knows, after seeing Laurent on stage, I could not picture myself being able to string out intelligent sentences, or even sentences at all, if he introduced me to him. I knew I would be efficiently startruck, in a way I'd actually never been.

There was something special, intense, and utterly devastating about the way he acted.

I usually don't get choked up by famous people's deaths. I was sad when Heath Ledger died, for instance, but it wasn't personal. This is only personal in so far as Stef knew him. And I'm here writing an LJ entry and welling up, because Laurent touched me that much, for the duration of one play. I can't imagine how many people he's touched that way over the course of a long, productive career.

French theatre has just lost one of its masters.

10 Many Reasons Why The Vampire Diaries Is 100 Times Better Than Twilight

+ The Girl actually freaks out when she figures out that the Boy is a Vampire.

+ The Girl is actually scared of the Vampire Boy.

+ The Girl does not think that the Vampire Boy sneaking into her bedroom is hot. She thinks it's scary.

+ Humans outside of the Girl are portrayed as Actual People.

+ The Girl actually cares about her Friends, who are Actual People.

+ Actual People have Plot too.

+ Plot exists.

+ Actual People might just wind up dead. (See Previous Reason.)

+ The Vampire Boy does not see why he should not be happy. He does not hate himself.

+ The Vampire Boy is a fan of Seinfeld and Scorsese. The Vampire Boy's Vampire Brother is a fan of Anne Rice. This trumps being a fan of scrapbooking and Jerry Springer by about a thousand points.

+ The Vampire Boy's Vampire Brother makes fun of Twilight. Score!

+ The Vampire Boy's Vampire Brother is more fun than any of the Cullens. Apart maybe from Alice.

+ The Girl does not lead the Human That Lusts After Her on. They are able to remain Friends without her telling him she loves him. Or him falling in love with her newborn daughter.

+ The Vampire Boy's Evil Vampire Brother is more than just Evil. He has Three Dimensions.

+ In fact, all the characters have Three Dimensions. Even the Humans outside of the Girl. (See Earlier Reason Mentioning Actual People.)

+ The Vampire Boy and the Girl have not had sex yet either. But it's not Off The Cards Until Marriage. They just haven't got round to it yet.

+ The Girl has not asked the Vampire Boy to turn her.

+ Even when the Girl and the Vampire Boy are writing in their diaries, their gooey corny cheese does not even begin to rival with Twilight. For instance:

+ The Vampire Boy is never referred to as an Adonis.

+ There is no Fucked Up Animal Metaphore. Or Ankle-Tattooed People to make it happen.

+ Oh, and also? Vampires don't fucking sparkle.

+ When Vampires dazzle someone, they're doing it on purpose.

+ The Vampire Boy does not creepily tell the Girl what her blood smells like. Hopefully, if the Vampire Boy ends up telling her, her blood will smell of blood, not fucking flowers.

I could go on.

Surely the few Browncoats who do not like Battlestar Galactica will think it's blaspheme for me to use that line in order to reflect my love for BSG.

I don't give a frak.

I have just watched The Plan. )

Title: Recoil, and grace.
Fandom: True Blood
Characters: Eric, Godric, Sookie
Summary: Send a heartbeat to
The void that cries through you
Relive the pictures that have come to pass
For now we stand alone
The world is lost and blown
And we are flesh and blood disintegrate
With no more to hate

Spoilers: 2x09. MAJOR spoilers for 2x09.

And now the kingdom comes, crashing down undone, and I am a master of a nothing place, of recoil and grace. )
fan_elune: (tb: authority in a look)
Back from holidays, one year older, yaddi yaddi yadda. But! 1x13 is the best Dollhouse episode without contest and if you haven't yet watched it, do it. It's also possibly one of my favourite episodes of any series, ever. I do mean ever. It tops so many things, is packed full of emotions, brings closure to so many storylines and yet doesn't give away too much either, and uses one of my favourite completely underrated obscure actors to be a funny and mean redhead. (That would be Zack Ward, but I'd be surprised if the name rang a bell with anyone.)

Also, I'm still absolutely addicted to True Blood, and to Eric, and I won't say anything more so as not to spoil, but Eric is quite simply FASCINATING. "Trust me." And I want the next episode already this cliffhanger is CRUEL.
fan_elune: (prelude to a kiss)
Grey's made me cry again, Skins made me squee, BSG made me its bride (I swear I will love that show 'til death do us part). Hustle is disappointing me, so is Leverage (finally watched more than the pilot). Time for Dollhouse yet?

Comment with a fandom, character(s) or pairing, and a prompt (word, quotation, picture, etc.) and I will try to fill as many requests as I can. You're allowed to make more than one request. Crossover requests are also allowed.
