Leverage, 1x02 - The Homecoming Job
First Look: CW’s ‘The Flash’ full bod costume | EW
"There’s something funny that Jordan and I discovered when we were on set as Alison and Felix. We were standing in a scene next to each other, and we were like, 'Oh my God, we’re standing the same way'. We’ve both got, like, an arm crossed across our chest and one hand kind of up and aloof in this sort of drama queen kind of way. There was something about their physicality that was actually very similar, and we were like, 'That’s so weird because these two could not be more different.' Alison probably judges absolutely everything Felix is and does and thinks, and he does the same for her. But I think they’re actually way more similar than they could ever imagine, or would ever want to admit. And I really love their friendship that’s starting to kind of develop."
i have 27 new male characters planned for season four, i’m really excited and 30000% sure you’re all going to love them.
Jeff: You know Derek?
Wardrobe: Ah yes, he of the leather jackets and tank tops.
Jeff: In the next episode he’s gonna go darkside and try to burn Chris Argent alive. Find something for him to wear.
Wardrobe: Don’t worry, we’ve got this covered. This will be Derek’s most bad ass outfit yet.
Wardrobe: *pulls out adorable maroon jumper with thumb holes*
The entirety of Sterek interaction this season thus far.
12 – Mind Control
If you know me, and you’re following me so you should, you would know that I love an angst fest. There is literally nothing I like more than a balls to the wall, heart wrenching, twisted stomach angst fest. And if done well Mind Control fics provide that in spades.
Now don’t get me wrong, I AM NOT a fan of it in terms of Character A using it to force Character B into doing things they don’t want to, be they sexual or emotional. But I’ve read a few really good fics where mind control was used by an outside force to make Character B kiss/sleep with/fall in love with Character A with Character A none the wiser and when handled correctly the fall out from that, the journey of how they get back to where they were or IF they get back to where they were, how they sort out what they really feel and what they were made to feel, how Character A deals with the fact that none of it was real, deals with wanting it to be real while at the same time hating themselves for not seeing what was happening, hating the fact that Character B was forced to do something they didn’t want to do.
Also when Mind Control is used to make one character hurt/torture/kill others – angst galore but again it’s the fallout from that which intrigues me. How do they balance the guilt of their actions with the knowledge that they had no control. How do people forgive someone who hurt them, even knowing it wasn’t really them. How does someone forgive themselves.
I have a complicated Hate/hates slightly less relationship with MPreg. I have said that I would never write it and in fact I’ve written many stories where the characters poke fun of the idea of MPreg. I used to say I would never read it but let’s get real here, Sterek has suddenly made me read a crap load of tropes/kinks that I never thought I would read.
For the most part it’s not my thing in any way shape or form. Probably half of the ones I’ve read have been an excuse to turn one character into a “mom” without having to genderbend them with no regard to the actual character himself and turning him into this caricature of a “pregnant woman”. Most of the time the how and the why are abandoned because the author just wanted to write them pregnant and the how and the why are important for me to be sucked into a novel.
The types of MPreg I can get behind:
Magical baby that came out of nowhere and no one knows how it happened because there is no magical sperm or no suddenly grown uterus there’s just like a baby in a belly and no one knows what to do and no one is just accepting this as a normal thing and said pregnant person is in denial for a very long time and even slightly disconnected from the whole thing because WHAT THE HELL DUDES CAN’T GET PREGNANT THIS IS RIDICULOUS BULLSHIT.
Complete alternate universe where it’s just a thing about that universe, where it’s always been a thing about that universe, where dudes have always been able to get pregnant and it’s not something random that just happened to magically happen to our character – cause it happens to everyone. I mostly see this type in Alpha/Beta/Omega universes.
18-Mary Sue Fic
Mary Sue, Mary Sue, oh how my heart yearns for you, Oh M-M-M-Mary, my Mary Sue. Oh, well I love you gal and I need you Mary Sue.
If you don’t get the above reference, Google Buddy Holly then get off my lawn (Christ I’m so old).
Good old Mary Sue Fics. I hate them. I really really do. Half the time when I see Original Character I cringe with trepidation on the off chance that I might get a Mary Sue. Sometimes I do, and sometimes I don’t. I like it when I’m pleasantly surprised. It’s somehow even worse when an author will take an already established character and turn them into a Mary Sue.
That being said. I’ve written Mary Sue. There is probably many a Mary Sue fics on my hard-drive that I don’t dare venture back into because I’m just too embarrassed. The fact of the matter is probably 90% of us have written Mary Sue. I’d venture to guess that there are many a Fanfiction writers who started off writing stories which puts a character who is eerily similar to them only maybe prettier, or skinnier, or smarter, or more bad ass into their favorite universes, who is someone’s sister or brother or best friend that moved away a long time ago and just moved back to town, who maybe goes off and has amazing adventures and saves the day with The Doctor, or who is a kick ass hunter and gets Dean Winchester to fall madly in love with them.
But the other thing about Mary Sue fics is that I don’t actually hate them at all. I mean as long as I don’t have to read them I think you should write them. I think if you want, you should have file after file of Mary Sue fics on your hard drive, because you’re writing something. Because while yes, your character might be a bit Mary Sue but that doesn’t change the fact that you’re writing plots and twists and connections, that you’re figuring out your voice, that you’re practicing your pacing and scene placement and all the millions of other things that go into making a story. And hopefully somewhere along the way you start to realize that maybe your character needs a few more flaws to make them more believable, more relatable. That maybe it isn’t really feasible that they would know how to do everything, and do it well. That maybe it’s more interesting to see them fail sometimes, to see them learn. And then before you know it you’ll find you don’t actually have a Mary Sue after all.
25 – Circus AU
I never wanted to join the circus when I was little. In fact I don’t ever remember going to an actual real live circus when I was little. I don’t really know much about Circus life other than what I’ve seen in TV shows and movies but from what I’ve seen I like the idea of it. The idea of a bunch of misfits who don’t seem to fit anywhere else, who take the things that society has used to cast them out onto the fringes and turn them around and turn it around them, make them pay to come see it, make them pay to come see them do the things/be the things they were shunned from the general populace for doing/being in the first place.
I remember reading a really really amazing Merthur Circus fic that still sits with me years later. More recently I read a book called The Night Circus (which if you haven’t read it you should do it – go now – it’s kind of amazing) and I would love for someone who is faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar more talented than me to turn that into a Sterek AU like burning.
So yeah, Circus, I’m on board, send me some recs.
