blackfrancine: (BtVS: Buffy's Creepy)
Jeesh, y'all.  Thirty days is really a whole lotta days.  This meme just goes on and on.  It's like Celine Dion's heart.  

And before I start, can I just say how simultaneously excited and disappointed I was with the Veronica Mars's performance in FMM.  I totally didn't think she'd get that far.  She took out Kurt Hummel, y'all.  He's a juggernaut.  But nothing my girl couldn't handle.  And then... only to lose such a hard-fought race.  So sad.  Vote Troy.  Because life has no meaning for me now that Veronica and Buffy are out.  Troy is my last shining light of hope.  

Okay.  Three more days.

Okay, you guys.  Here we go!  Recommendation day is here at last!  My main way of participating in fandom has been to consume the amazing work created by others more talented than myself.  So, I'm really excited to have an excuse to talk about some of my  favorite works and maybe introduce some of y'all to one or two new fics or vids.

But there's a lot here.  Especially in the vid section, as you can see.  So, you might want to stretch and get some water--I don't want anyone pulling a muscle or getting dehydrated trying to marathon all the awesome that's about to come flying at your head.  

FYI--This post is going be my html masterpiece if even half of the embeds and links work.  It took me all day.

 So many wacky demons, so few memes with which to address their wackiness. But my pick for the wackiest (or maybe just plain weirdest) of all is... 

Day 23: Doublemeat is double sweet.  )

The character who should have gotten more screen time is... 

Day 24: Que sera sera. Whatever will be will be.  )

In other news: EEEE.  I'm so excited.  Tomorrow is gonna be the rec-post day!  If it weren't already 2:00 AM, I'd spend the next 3 hours organizing my picks.  Woot. 
blackfrancine: (BtVS: Anya's sad)
I'm trying to make up for lost time! 2 days in one post!  

Man, Day 15 was difficult.  Not because I couldn't decide.  Just because thinking about these scenes kept making me cry.  Sadness ahoy!

Day 16: My Biggest WTF Moment )

 Because I'm a rebel and because humor is perhaps my favorite thing about BtVS, I refuse to limit myself to one scene.  So.  Here are 3 of the funniest scenes I could think of. 

Oh, BUFFY. You slay me! )
blackfrancine: (BtVS: Spike--Randy's a superhero)
So, no!  I didn't give up on the 30 Days of Buffy meme!  I finally got my software all sorted out and my computer firing on all cylinders. And I've spent the last 3 days working on the picspam that is hiding below the cut. Oooh. Suspenseful.  

Now, my Photoshopping skills are what you might generously call rudimentary. But this, you guys, is my Mona Lisa. My Sistine Chapel. My... Still Life with Woodpecker?

Anyway. It came out almost how I wanted it to. So, I'm pleased.  So without further ado, I give you Day 13: My favorite character arc.  



Day 13: Favorite Character Arc )
blackfrancine: (BtVS: Ben Is Glory?)
I don't know if I've mentioned this about myself, but I'm impetuous.  To a fault.  Maybe impetuousness is always considered a fault? Well, mine is like a super fault, then.  The San Andreas fault. 

I think I must've fallen and hit my head or something (but I don't remember it). Because I bought a new laptop. It's shiny and new.  

Another sign that I've lost my mind or suffered some sort of head trauma: I bought a paid LJ membership.  And an icon package.  Now, typically, I wouldn't say that's an indication of my oncoming dementia, but if you consider that I have icons that I never use even out of my "free package" selection of 15, it seems a little irrational to buy more, doesn't it?  Somehow, I managed to convince myself that it was the limited scope of the 15 icons that was preventing me from using them to their best effect.  

And last.  I bought ALL of the Buffy Season 8 comics on amazon yesterday.  So, they'll be here soon.  I'm excited. But, the problem is that I haven't yet returned the wrong comics that I bought (I mistakenly bought the Omnibus).  I was supposed to return those first.  But I didn't. Because I'm the least responsible person in the world.  

And frankly, I'm seriously considering buying some clothes from ModCloth.  So.  I think I'm on a shopping jag.  

Anyway! Enough about my foolhardy spending habits. Let's humor my desire to stick to this imaginary schedule, and talk about memes and stuff. 
Day 10: Something I liked that fandom didn't )

Day 11: Somthing I hate that fandom loves )
Day 12: Least favorite season )
blackfrancine: (Andrew Funnel Cake)
So, after having been shockingly on schedule with this meme for 8 days, I missed yesterday.  But I have a good excuse!  I. Signed up. For Seasonal Spuffy.  That's right.  And I spent the better part of last night attempting to write something!  I think it probably sucks!  But still.  I have plenty of time to try and make it not suck. 

Anyhoo! Have a surprisingly long stream-of-consciousness essay on my favorite villain(s)!

They wrapped evil around them like a large, evil Mexican serape )

So, in a very unfortunate turn of events, this morning, I spilled a soda on my laptop.  Expanded tale of woe )

It was actually kind of hard to decide on a least favorite couple.  It turns out I don't exactly hate any couples.  But I settled on this one...
I don't like any of that stuff. Except theā€”the fighting evil part. Even then, I prefer a nice foot massage )

There's not a lot to say about this episode because... well, because I don't like it.

Pull them little strings and I'll sing you a song, I'm your puppet  )

Day 6 is my favorite couple, and I’m not even going to play the fake-you-out game where I pretend like my favorite pairing is Xander/Cordelia or Willow/Kennedy, because we all know what I’m going to pick.

So brace yourself, f-list and assorted other readers. Because you’re about to be punched in the face with the full force of my shipping fury.


AHOY! The ship is settin' sail, mateys! )

So, I don't know if anyone noticed--if you did, you are magnanimous in nature for not correcting me-- I posted two "Day 3's."  I'm not surprised that I had a counting!fail.  But, really, I thought I would've broken ten with no mistakes.  Alas.

But, I'm all set straight and cardinally numbered.  And rarin' to do Day 5.   Which! Is super apropos for [livejournal.com profile] gabrielleabelle 's Why So Icy? poll!  

My favorite season?  Easy.  

I will cut a bitch... (Get it? LJ cut? Heh. I suck.) )

This was another difficult choice. I kept thinking of an episode that I love—and then I’d start to write up an explanation of why it’s the GREATEST EPISODE EVAR, and then suddenly I’d remember another episode. And I was like, D’oh. I think I like that episode more than the other one.

Yeah… repeat these steps about four times, and you have an idea of the evolution of this post.

So, I made a little list of the runners up, because I think they deserve some recognition as well.

You were fighting as a soldier on their side )

Day three is supposed to be on my least favorite character. And this was a tough one. A little while ago, it probably would’ve been Xander. Because of his mansplaining in Into the Woods and slut shaming in… well, too many episodes to count, really. But. I’ve sort of had a Come to Jesus moment with Xander (in this scenario, Xander is not Jesus. I don’t know who is—but it isn’t Xander). I’m still not crazy about him, but my seething hatred has dissipated.

Willow was another contender—mainly for her baby talk. Snuggly wuggly? Smoochies? Ugh. I can’t stand baby talk. Not to mention the “Baby” talk with Tara—them calling each other “Baby” and “Sweetie” all the time. Gag me. But that hardly seems like grounds to award her the Least Favorite Character title.

I realize that everyone is going to think that I’m a total freak and that no one in the entire world feels the way I do about this character, but whatever. I’m a lone wolf. A renegade. I follow the beat of my own drum and all that.

So, without further ado, the Least Favorite Character title goes to…
Can't fight the seether )

No! I'm kidding; there'll be no singing.  I kept trying to work the lyrics for "Kiss Off" into here somewhere because it's been in my head all day. But I failed.  OR DID I?

They'll hurt me bad, they do it all the time )
blackfrancine: (Joan is a superhero)
Actually, no.  This isn't important.  But I'm jittery and bored and sleepless.  So, I'm posting this.  

Woo hoo! I just started watching the Vampire Diaries last week, and I'm almost caught up. My feelings about it can be summed up thusly: I ♥ Damon. And Jenna. And Caroline. And Alaric and Jeremy are A-OK too. Elena isn't too bad either. The end.

Well, psych. That's not really the end. I have one more thought--I love the Salvatore brothers' relationship. That's some compelling human drama. I mean, man am I predictable. Nothing reels me in like a good sibling story, I tell ya. 

In other news, I've been thinking about doing the 30 Days of Buffy meme for a little while now.  Hopefully, it'll be a way of getting myself to post more often. And also I get to talk about my ~feelings~, which is pretty much my favorite pastime.  

Heh. Not really. That was a joke. I don't like to talk about my real feelings (though it seems like I do it an awful lot lately)--but I do like to talk about my Buffy-related feelings.  So, I figured I'd go ahead and kick it off right now with day one, my favorite female character...

All the ladies in the house, I'm callin' out to ya )

Also-- I hate the world right now.  I just figured out that after hemming and hawing over Season 8, that I bought the wrong damn thing.  And I'm gonna have to take it back to the bookstore (and I only bought it from the bookstore because I had a gift card)--and they always give you the side-eye when you return books.  Which, I get. I'd be giving side-eye if I were them.  But this is totally legit! I haven't read them.  And they were expensive.  So, that's not gonna be fun.  Boo-urns.
