I can’t find a tumblr post. Search is garbage. I know it exists but alas. Anyway it’s on repeat in my mind. The sentiment goes something like this:

“You like that show?”

“I like the version I wrote in my head after it started to disappoint me.”

*sighing forever*

This is why we can’t have nice things.

Fandom Asks for 2022, presuming I can remember what actually was last year

You know what, I get no asks so I ask myself because why not? If I feel like doing something then just do it. Fun can be had. There are no limits. This is my tumblr and I can ramble as I please haha.

So there were 25 questions and I’m just going to see what I feel like rambling about because I do just feel like rambling this evening. I’m having thinky thoughts about fandom because I miss it. I’m in one of those “fuck it, there’s no point” kind of moods. I made plans for the year and I am doubting myself. I don’t think I can do it. I don’t think I have the skills or the spoons. I wasn’t good at fandom shit either but hey I had the excuse that it was just for fun, so it didn’t matter. I mean it mattered, and it ate at me that I was never as good as I wanted, but it didn’t mean doom.

Thinky thoughts!

@purlturtle​ thanks for the tag! 🙂

Four ships:


#1 James Watson / John Druitt / Helen Magnus (Sanctuary)

my current obsession


I have zero choice with these guys. I didn’t choose to ship them, they just grabbed me and haven’t let go yet. It’s just tragic. The whole quasi-immortal thing, the century they spent apart, time travel, being possessed by a homicidal energy parasite, what’s a little murder between friends? They have everything.

#2 Myka Bering / HG Wells (Warehouse 13)


again the moment I saw them I was gone. #ships of pain seems to be a theme as do the fact that Victorians out of time make for the best ships bwahaha.

#3 Artie Nielsen / James MacPherson (Warehouse 13)


This is an odd one as I rewatched Warehouse 13 several times and then one day I saw this scene ^^ and my mind went into overdrive and it hasn’t left since. They are a big part of the 60k (and counting) fanfic I’m writing atm. Also #rare pair seems to be a thing for me atm.

This completes the trifecta of ships of pain and betrayal.

#4 Eve Baird / Flynn Carsen (The Librarians)


This is the “non-hurty” ship! Haha. Now I could have put a lot of things for #4 but I thought I’d stick with ships I’m currently writing. I mean don’t get me wrong there’s some angst to deal with here too but generally much less than the epic betrayals in the ‘ships of pain’ above.

First ever ship: 

Jack Malone / Samantha Spade (Without a Trace)

Not something I’d go for now but twenty years ago… it was one of those ships that should have been a cliché but wasn’t. I quit this show pretty early (only watched season 1-3). I think I got grabbed because it was subtle. The actors did a lot with body language and the odd line here or there.

Last song:

Ok iTunes is currently playing ‘Nothing Lasts Forever’ by Maroon 5 (I always have music playing).

Last film: 

National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets

I’m a bit of a sucker for archaeological/treasure hunting thrillers to be honest. Oh wow actually the more I think about it… yeah hunting for historical artifacts is a major theme. What’s not to love? There’s treasure and there’s history and there’s mystery and adventure. Oh that’s not in reference to the movie btw. I’m not saying this particular movie is all that great, it’s the genre I enjoy.

Currently reading: 

Kingdoms at War (Dragon Gate #1) by Lindsay Buroker

I’ve been reading a lot more lately. It’s been a goal for years but this is the first year I’ve really ran with it. I’m way ahead of target and averaging 6 books a month thus far (if you can average with only 2 months of data lol).

Currently watching: 

Sooooo many things. Seriously TVMaze Watchlist keeps track for me. I also made it my goal this year to actually finish shows rather than just starting them. I don’t have access to all the episodes yet (just the first 6 seasons) but I’ve almost finished those for:

The Flash


Currently consuming:

I share the confusion as to what this question is about. If it’s food then I guess it’s lunchtime and so in 10 minutes the answer will be:

Soya yogurt

Currently craving: 

Now this could be food? Buuuut c’mon lets be real. True I have food cravings sometimes (don’t we all?) but for the fun let’s say something else, something I crave a lot more frequently.


Haha. Seriously. I have a problem. Too much is never enough. I always want more. So many cool actual sets, so many cool Rebrickable sets, and so many dreams of MOC’s I want to make.

Watching Miss Fisher.

Hugh: Miss Fisher’s gone on holiday again.

Jack: Anybody dead yet?

Hugh: Just the one sir.

*dies of laughter*

I believe that’s what they call ‘hanging a lampshade on it’. Honestly she’s as bad as Jessica Fletcher 😂

Just checked the news and the headline is “Wonder Woman sequel flopped at the box office” and I’m offended.

Like seriously what did they expect releasing it during a pandemic?

Cynical part of me wonders if the powers that be were trying to kill it. I mean Wonder Woman (and Aquaman) were the strongest DC properties, which led to Justice League rewrites/reshoots if I remember correctly, to give them more of a role. Having the ‘female’ movie totally outperform Batman probably shouldn’t be allowed (can you hear my eyes rolling?).

I just think it’s a shameful way to treat what I suspect is a good movie. If 2020 was a regular year I would have bought a cinema ticket. But it’s not a normal year and comparing it’s returns to the first movie is just ridiculous.

So yeah offended. Please don’t call it a flop. That’s just not fair. Wonder Woman deserves better.

I’m watching the Vegas Lie to Me episode 🙁


– Foster looks amazing

– Vegas is a cool town (on TV)


– everything else

I hate roulette lady, I hate how awkward everything becomes between Foster and Lightman. I hate what Lightman does. I get that we’re not always supposed to like what characters do but I still don’t like it because he disappoints Foster. It fits his character to do it because he pushes boundaries like that but I still hate it.

I like it when they are friends and supportive of one another and this pain is just going to continue as quite rightfully Foster is pissed for ages.

‘Tis sad.

Ahhhhh all these Disney+ announcements I’m so psyched!!

Well alright, my excitement is a bit muted based on no announcement of a UK launch date :/ BUT I just love that there’s a lot of it.

I don’t think I’ve made a secret of the fact that I didn’t enjoy the Marvel Netflix shows. I tried very hard because I thought that I should, I love marvel so why not? But sometimes things just don’t click and they didn’t click for me.

I am positive that I will not enjoy everything on Disney+. I might be excited for it (as I was for Marvel Netflix) but when I see it in reality there will be things that just don’t click. However the fact that there’s going to be a lot means the odds that I will enjoy some things is quite high!

Right now I’m looking forward to everything, especially The Mandalorian (I am so hungry for more Star Wars) and the What if? marvel series (what if? is my favourite writer game). Reality may disappoint but something unexpected might become my absolute favourite.

I can’t wait to find out! 🙂

I got tagged in a thing! 🙂 thanks @pinchtheprincess 🙂 🙂

Pick 5 shows, then answer the following questions. Don’t cheat. Tag 10 peeps.

  1. The Librarians
  2. Warehouse 13
  3. Once Upon a Time
  4. Stargate SG-1
  5. Killjoys

1. Who is your favorite character in 2?
I have to pick one? Ok well I’m going for HG Wells but seriously HG and Myka are a pair *nods*

2. Who is your least favorite character in 1?
Least favourite on the show that makes me happy? the show that is made of pure joy? Oh that’s hard. That’s really hard. I suppose maybe I wasn’t all that fond of Nicole and I do have a bit of a love-to-conspiracy with Judson.

3. What is your favorite episode of 4?
Failsafe possibly. “Cut the red wire.” “Carter they are all yellow”. It was a stand-alone, riding an asteroid through Earth. I don’t know it was just fun and the first one that came to mind. I could do a really long list.

4. What is your favorite season of 5?
Season 1 probably. I did like the whole “bounty hunters in space” thing which has been background to the whole “war against the green” since then.

5. Who is your favorite couple in 3?
They are why I’m on tumblr. Without them … my life would be drastically different. #Rumbelle all the way!

6. Who is your favorite couple in 2?
OMG YES! Sorry I did say Myka and HG were a pair 🙂

Oh I ship them so hard. I love them so much! Bering and Wells guys!!!

7. What is your favorite episode of 1?
Erm every single episode? Seriously I can’t tell you how many times I’ve rewatched this show. It is just made of happy. I suppose if I absolutely had to pick I would go for the season two premiere. It’s just “your average tuesday” 🙂

8. What is your favorite episode of 5?
Oh difficult. Erm. I tend to binge watch this show so they kinda blend. The one that is coming to mind was the one with the acid rain in season one. Johnny is trapped at The Royal with a hostage situation and he has to help Pawter (I ship them) and then at the end he’s reading a comic and Dutch joins him so there’s a great friendship moment as well. All the characters get a turn, Pree and Alvis are there. Although I do like the episode earlier in the season with that warrant invite party when they are chasing down Big Joe and so the boys do a team-up with Fancy because Dutch is being blackmailed by Khlyen, it was a good insight into the RAC.

9. What is your favorite season of 2?
Season 2! That was the big HG Wells season 🙂 She was also in season 3 (some amazing amazing Bering and Wells stuff) and I have to be honest I haven’t seen season 4 and 5 because all the Bering and Wells stuff and HG’s sacrifice in the season 3 finale gave me so many feels I haven’t felt up to continuing. I mean how could the show top that?

10. How long have you watched 1?
It’s been about a year as I discovered it last summer. Unfortunately that was about the same time it was cancelled 🙁 so four seasons is the lot. So sad because the show was so brilliant, I would have watched it for infinity.

11. How did you become interested in 3?
I got netflix to watch Daredevil, as it was a marvel show and I’m a marvel fan. I didn’t actually like Daredevil in the end but at the time as I had the sub I wanted to find more stuff on Netflix to make it worth it. I scrolled through and tried a dozen shows. Once Upon a Time hooked me in the first 5 seconds with the production value, the sunlight on the water as Charming rode the horse along that causeway… I’m not 100% sure what kept me watching initially as my memory is tainted by my present feelings. I think maybe I was just intrigued by the concept. Anyway this was when season 4 was going on I think, and I caught up over the summer and started season 5 with everyone else.

12. Who is your favorite actor in 4?
Amanda Tapping probably, purely because I think she’s one of the few I’ve seen in other things. Plus she plays my favourite character so /shrug

13. Which do you prefer, 1, 2, or 5?
The Librarians #1 hard to vote against Bering and Wells but it’s a pairing against an entire show and The Librarians is just … well it’s not perfection because there are things I would have done differently but it doesn’t make me annoyed, it doesn’t frustrate me, it just makes me happy.

14. Which show have you seen more episodes of, 1 or 3 ?
Once Upon a Time simply because they made more. Once had what 22 episodes a season? And The Librarians had 10, apart from season 4 which had 12, and I watched 6 seasons of Once and The Librarians only had 4 so yeah math – Once.

15. If you could be anyone from 4, who would you be?
Haha oh man talk about fate making #4 be for this question. I have often said that Samantha Carter is my role model, so yeah hands down no question.

16. Would a crossover between 3 and 4 work?
Once and Stargate? It’s problematic because of the whole magic on Earth thing. I suppose perhaps if it had stayed only working within the town line, and there was a bubble around the town, then it could be said that the rules of physics had been altered due to some kind of phase distortion. Magic is after all science we don’t understand yet to paraphrase that famous quote, plus the whole magic bean portal thing – portal to other lands, other worlds – does fit with Stargate a bit. Then I suppose the characters embodying the fairytale, is a bit like the goa’uld and the various mythologies on Earth.

So maybe?

17. Pair two characters in 1 who would make an unlikely but strangely okay couple.
Unlikely but ok? Erm well according to The Librarians ship-a-thon, pretty much any character can be shipped with another. I’m struggling to find one that is unlikely AND ok because it’s one or the other. I don’t know. Sorry I’m coming up empty on this one.

18. Overall, which show has the better storyline, 3 or 5?
Killjoys. I don’t understand where they are going with it (season 5 is airing soon and it’s the last season so all will be revealed!) but I have faith that it will make sense and be ok. The show is complex but repeated rewatches have shown more foreshadowing than I had previously thought. Once Upon a Time was an amazing premise, the actual storyline not so much.

19. Which has the better theme music, 2 or 4?
Well they are both very good but we’re talking “Stargate, it’s a great big whirl
With a great big swirl to step inside to another world”

The lip-syncing is terrible, almost as bad as the dancing /sniggers.

Still this is actually quite entertaining. The characters are more dimensional than I thought they would be and I really like the tourney game that looks like a cross between shield drills, lacrosse and American football. Oh and the castle/manor looks cool, especially with all the emblems and coats of arms.

I keep wanting to say Mal is the best character but really they do all have their journey. Jay experienced the feeling of belonging for the first time. Carlos confronted his fears. Evie gained confidence in herself that she could be smart as well as the much lauded pretty that she had been taught to admire. The son of Prince Charming was the “biggest jerk” and the fact that up until now they never gave the descendants a chance meant good was shown to have its own dark side.

Plus I watched this initially for the soundtrack so that’s good.

And oooooooh I’m kinda live blogging and ok Prince Ben is awesome with the reveal that he knew and he still likes her.

Oh wow check out that stained glass window of BatB. I still feel gross that shady Blue is playing Belle but all the yellow and blue looks good rather than silly. I commend the set people.

And awwwww this ending I should have seen coming and didn’t. I hope that changed some hearts and minds before Maleficent showed up. I think calling it an ending was premature. Seriously she brings new levels to chewing the scenery.

It’s a bit hammy but at its core – not rotten :p

Would recommend.

Decided to watch Disney’s Descendants movie because the soundtrack is good and oh man I’m 10 minutes in and this is a trip.

Blue – shady Blue! – is playing Belle ick

The Evil Queen is played by the same actress as Sister Mary Patrick (the really happy nun from Sister Act).

It’s obviously part musical which I hadn’t quite realised but ok.

I have a feeling this is going to be part weird and part hilarious.
