xparrot: (happy seal!)
Have seen the first 6 eps of Tiger & Bunny with the bro - mucho enjoyment but then we're both weak to superheroes. It's not really a superhero parody so much as a straight superhero show that happens to fall on the sillier end of the spectrum, though it seems to be slowly sliding to the more serious side, as they do. And may answer the age-old question: if Bruce Wayne and Darkwing Duck were forced by their corporate sponsors to become partners, who would snap and kill the other first? Seiyuu bonus: +30 in sexiness for Hirata Hiroaki (mmmm) and +42 in brain breakage for my beloved Tsuda Kenjirou as the flaming-in-every-meaning-of-the-word Fire Emblem (?!!?!?!?111!!?!)

In other superhero news, Peter David wrote the last ep of Ben 10, which was a not-really-disguised-at-all anti-Gitmo ep. No really. (Apparently it was mostly Dwayne McDuffie's idea, though he wasn't the writer. Not at all surprising, but damn, it makes his loss hurt that much more.) (Also it aired on Friday 4/29, interesting timing to say the least). Torn between OMGLOLWHUT at political soapboxing on a ridiculous kid's cartoon and crying honest tears of rage because seriously, if you can reduce the moral complexity of a situation to the black&white ethics of a superhero world in 20 minutes, it's not that fucking complex.

Am up to Skypiea in One Piece reread (or not re- in this case because for various reasons I've never read or watched about half of Skypiea) and love this series so, so much. I think my only real criticism of it (other than the lack of nakama-hugs, siiigh) is that the shounen fights sometimes get a little long - which is an aberration for me because I love fight shounen battles (though more animated than in manga, where sometimes I have trouble following the action), but with OP I'm always so anxious to get back to the plots and characters that sometimes I'll start tapping my foot. Still is my favorite manga ever.

Also I've said it before but I love Odacchi's female chars THIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIxa million-IIIS much. squeeing about the lovely ladies of OP, a little spoilery through Arabasta )

In non-animated news, regarding the latest ep of NCIS (8x23) - haven't been watching most of this season but [livejournal.com profile] gnine recced this ep to me for a specific reason, namely OT4 FOREVER AND ALWAYS ZOMG: a 4-way hug!!!! <3333 That's it, the show could end now and I'd be happy~... (also in the previous ep, Ziva calling McGee "not just any partner" AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW.

Also, mostly for my own reference, I have still been watching SPN (AHAHAHAHAH the only thing right about this show is HOW WRONG IN EVERY WAY it is. Not content with having killed off almost every recurring female char they've ever had, now they're going back and rekilling women they've killed before, and bringing back cool one-shot female chars to kill - oh, Amber Benson, whyyyyy?)

...That being said, I would so watch the Castiel &Crowley show. It's like the Odd Couple! With more blood and sex! (Okay, that last might be wishful thinking, but then again, with this show's crack count, who knows?)

And [livejournal.com profile] gnine & I will be watching SV's finale this Friday...Lex is back, we have no choice. Pity us!

First off, if you've heard about the earthquake in Haiti and want to do something, check out [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti. They've got various donation links, and are running a fandom auction (donate and get a fannish reward!) I'm offering a fic for bidding here.

Unrelatedly, concerning the last ep of NCIS (7x12): a bit of squeeful spoilers )

I got into a discussion elsewhere about female characters, how they're often not as well-written as the guys. But that gets to be a depressing topic. So rather than talk about how female characters lose out, here's some winning female characters!

10 fandoms' worth of awesome women:

PS. Yuletide nominations are open! I'm gonna be signing up for the first time...should be fun!

I'm plugging away at the drabbles commentfic - thanks much for the great prompts, and if you want one for your very own, all you gotta do is ask!

As for NCIS 7x01:spoilers )

There's also NCIS: LA, which I haven't watched yet...got enough other shows on my plate, and I hate getting into things in their first season, when their future's uncertain. But let me known how it goes!

My first [livejournal.com profile] cliche_bingo fic, for "rare pairings". Stretching the prompt a bit, because some of these aren't rare, but some of them probably are? Warnings for more cliches, pure crack, and, er, other things.

I've had this one in mind for a while, because let's face it, it's fun to pick on poor McGee.

NCIS: 5 Nights McGee Can't Forget {~4,800 words}
PG-13; het, slash; humor, crack
This isn't the first time Tim's had this dream...

( "He has to admit, it was one of the more memorable variations." )

Argh! The usual December writing doldrums are putting such a crimp in my fic-style. I've got a story due for [livejournal.com profile] sga_santa, but am I writing that? Of course not! Instead, when I finally did manage to kick myself into writing, this popped out. --Before anyone throws up their hands in either delight or dismay, no, this is not the start of anything. If [livejournal.com profile] gnine gets her wish there might be one or two more where this one came from, but nothing major. I'm still going steady with SGA; this is just a fling.

--Though I must do an NCIS post o' squee; I'm all caught up to the current season and enjoying the heck out of it. Such a fun series! Such a cute team! And yeah, I love Tony like burning. (It's totally not my fault - he's basically a clone of the fanon Peter Venkman, the hot, juvenile, womanizing wise-ass with hidden depths. Plus he hurts real good.) No Tony-hurt here, though; no angst at all, just goofiness. Don't blame me, it's December. (Poor Tim. I'm sorry, sweetie!)

NCIS: These Things Do Happen {~3,500 words}
Rated S for Slash, non-explicit Sexual references, and Silliness; mild Spoilers through Season 6
McGee wakes one morning to a startling revelation, and Abby and Ziva are there for him. Much to his dismay.

Read it on AO3

What can I say, it's a squeeful show. We're mostly through season 3 (just watched 3x19; again, no spoilers for later eps, please!)

spoilers & squee & a bit of blathering about pairings )

Last fall [livejournal.com profile] naye mailed us DVDs of a little show you might've heard of, goes by SGA. And we all know how that turned out. Now she's subjecting us to Life (entertaining bit of cop-show surrealism) and NCIS (which is not, I was surprised to learn, a CSI variant. Am rather amused by how often the show itself sees fit to belabor that point...well, it's an easy mistake!) While I'm not likely to completely fan on it (it's not scifi, plus it has the same problem that so many shows that are not SGA suffer from, namely a crippling lack of Rodney McKay), NCIS is an entertaining popcorn show. By which I mean it's pretty much impossible to eat just one ep, not when there's another right there, sitting in the bucket and soaking up delicious faux-butter grease.

a bit more on NCIS, as of mid-season 2 )

In other news, this still has me high. YES WE CAN!!!

(So who's writing the RPF-ish thing wherein our new President-elect's intelligence briefing includes a summary of the Stargate Program? "We spend how many billions on archaeological research in order to defend the planet from alien spaceships made from giant pyramids? And what was that about intergalactic vampires, again?")

ETA: [livejournal.com profile] ariadne83 informs me that Ladycat777 is writing this!
