The I'm Still Around Post

I realized I hadn't boasted in a week which may lead some people to worry I'm lying in a ditch. I've just had a lot of stuff going on and not much brain power or energy left to post at night. Even this weekend, which was relatively relaxing, I couldn't motivate myself to say (or type) anything. I do have a list of things I want to post about and hopefully will feel motivated to tackle it soon and I've been keeping up with my Flist because I'm paranoid about missing something big in your lives. I think I finally just reached the point where I feel I need to decide what I want to do with my journal and how much time I want to devote to it now that BSG is over and there will be no season 3 of TSCC, a show I thought would fill the BSG void. Maybe V will be really good. ::crosses fingers::

And because everyone - Ok, two people on my Flist - are doing it, the favorite couples meme going around.

Name your 10 absolutely favorite couples (het/slash/canon/fanon) and ask people to see what trends they notice about your couples. Try to pick different fandoms.

1) Lee/Laura - Battlestar Galactica
2) Buffy/Spike - Buffy: The Vampire Slayer
3) John/Aeryn - Farscape
4) Mulder/Scully - The X-Files
5) Horatio/Archie - Horatio Hornblower
6) Nick/Nora - The Thin Man
7) Sydney/Vaughn - Alias
8) Mason/Julia - Santa Barbara
9) Beecher/Keller - Oz
10) Lee/Amanda - Scarecrow & Mrs King (a blast from the past!)

I could probably add more couples, which surprises me, but I'll keep it to ten.
  • Current Mood: thirsty thirsty
I'll admit to being curious as to what some of those other couples would be...

I didn't think you were dead in a ditch, though. Maybe at the bottom of a flight of stairs, given those heels you wear, but not in a ditch ;)
I listed the ten that immediately jumped to mind and were relationships that I *really* wanted to see happen and doubted they would or relationships I knew would happen and had to anxiously await the inevitable. But other pairings I could have included were...

Lee/Helo (I wrote a fic!) or Lee/Sonja (I partially blame beccatoria for this one ;).

Julie/Matt and Tami/Eric - Friday Night Lights

Jack/Jennifer - Days of Our Lives

Matt/Donna - Another World (Yes, I use to be a soap devotee)

Cameron/House - House

Wes/Lilah - Angel

Han/Leia - Star Wars

And I don't know if I should count Sam/Jack from SG1. I never actively shipped them and have no interest in reading the pairing in fic, but I'm sure once Jack went to Washington and he was no longer Sam's commanding officer they hooked up. ;)
I've never heard of Another World, but I've heard of the others... even if all I know about Days of Our Lives is that Joey was Dr Drake Remoray.

I was more of a fan of Tyra/Landry in FNL than Julie/Matt - I don't think I had a lot of empathy or patience for Julie, although I've only seen the first two seasons.

Wes/Lilah was a fascinating ship on Angel - moreso than pretty much any of the others, I think. Alas, they both died too soon - even if Lilah did come back briefly.

Tami and Eric are awesome. What more is there that needs saying? :D

Who's Sonja, by the way?
Another World was canceled back in the mid nineties and I don't know that it ever had a breakout super couple in it's later years.

Julie is much, much, MUCH improved in Season 3. My like for her was pretty much killed in Season 2, but she was brought back from the brink!

Sonja is the Six model who was chosen by the Cylons to be their Quorum delegate. She had two brief scenes with Lee in Season 4.5. beccatoria and I have taken to shipping the two and having long conversations about their potential together. It's complicated! And that's all I can say about it at the moment. ;)
Glad to see you! :) (and glad you're not in a ditch, ditches are bad) ;)

Hope you've been having a good Spring.
I almost watched Caprica this past weekend, but life got in the way. Hopefully, I'll get to it soon.
Thank you for giving me an excuse to think about Mason and Julia. I still watch GH and Nancy Lee Grahn is on it, so M & J is often lurking in my brane. But it's lovely to share.

And Matt/Donna! I might never have thought of them again. And they were fabby.
I have an on again/off again relationship with GH. Currently, it's on again thanks to Johnny and Olivia. I've never had much interest in them separately, but together they're pretty damn hot and interesting. And I'm enjoying Sonny and Claudia making their potential relationship ALL ABOUT THEM and being told it's none of their damn business.

The "She's twice your age!" and "Old enough to be your mother!" remarks are laughable. I pegged the actors at about 30 and 35 and turns out they are 30 and 39. So, it's hard for me to take the older woman/younger man angst the show is trying to create seriously.

I still like Nancy, but Alexis is annoying the hell out of me with her investigation of Rebecca and butting into Nicholas's life. Of course, half the characters on the show annoy me so I just fast forward over their scenes. :) I do like the new Michael though.

Hulu hosts episodes of Another World, but I think they are still about a year away from getting to the Matt/Donna arc. I've tried to watch the episodes currently available, but Matt's being more of an ass than I remember and I'm noticing that the acting style of the day seemed to be to scream your lines when you're upset.
this post is like eons old, but i'm slowly working my way through the flist - if i posted today, thought i should comment on stuff too - and just wanted to say: NICK AND NORA!
