fishpatrol: (how *you* doin')
1. Upstairs!opera-singer-wannabe? Please stop singing. :( (Or at least have the decency to use a music room that are apparently available in the building?) You sound like a 鬼. D:

2. My bamboos, Bruno and Boots, were teeny when I first bought them. And then they grew a bit. And look at them now! :D

\o/ )

3. This is my lovely cheat sheet that I made for my stats midterm (there's a back side, too). I didn't even get to use half of the stuff I recorded, but that's probably a good thing because I really didn't understand the proofs we did in class.

4. Vid rec! SPN, Wincest, awesome use of show footage, and just kind of breathtakingly beautiful. Also, some of the most gorgeous shots of Dean. *___* Link: here.

5. I'm not much of a fan of Genevieve Cortese's acting, but she's kind of adorable-like in her I-don't-have-a-Twitter vid. Speaking of Genevieve, did she and Jared get married already? I recall a rumour of a February wedding...

6. I'm surprised at how often people confused "loose" for "lose". I just finished reading a Sam/Dean fic that was quite well-written except for the fact that the author didn't seem realize that "lose" (losing, loser) was a word and consistently used "loose" (loosing, looser) instead. My surprise mostly stems from the fact that "lose" (and its variations -- "loser", especially) appears to be the more commonly used word -- and plus, everyone knows how to spell "lost" correctly, right?

7. The Psych-out from 4x14: oh, Lassiter, you are too sexy for your gun. ♥

eta 8. I know I'll forget to mention it when the day comes (because I do every year), but in less than a week, this journal will be three years old. And in less than a month, my old journal (which I do go back periodically to check the flist) will be seven years old. That means I've spent nearly a third of my life in varying states of LJ-addiction. Wow. X3

1. DED FROM TEH CUTE. There's just something about wee orange tabbies that make me go EEE♥

2. I signed up for [livejournal.com profile] j2_everafter with the Aladdin prompt. I think this is my first time doing a fest/challenge/etc (oh wait, no, I did some H/D art fest thing many many years ago).
I have ~*ideas*~ \o/ Jensen as a topless genie, Y/Y?

3. Speaking of crossovers, THIS IS BRILLIANT. (for those too lazy to click: Sam and Dean in Big Bang Theory -- Sheldon's face! Their outfits!)

4. There totally needs to be a J2 Macdonald Hall crossover where Jared and Jensen are Bruno and Boots, respectively, and get up to all sorts of shenanigans under Headmaster Kripke's fishy glare watchful eye during the day, and at night, sneak over to Genevieve and Danneel's room at Gamble's Finishing School For Young Ladies to cause more mayhem, and everyone (including Blabbermouth Chad and Butterfingers Mike and Crazy Mad Scientist Misha) knows that Jared is head-over-heels for Jensen except for Jensen himself and of course there will have to be Elaborate Plans and Committees and Coalitions because The World Is Crumbling All Around Them /o/
*stops now*
*...*
*eyes [livejournal.com profile] scintilla10 hopefully*

5. I'm going to go eat leftover pizza and watch Merlin 2x07. \o/ and maybe finally get some work done after my entirely unproductive weekend

1) I didn't like calculus the first time around, and now, four years later (read: four years without touching any form of math -- stats doesn't count), I'm trying to speed!learn university level calculus with limited success. When I see something like this "You observe that ∂x/∂α > 0, ∂p/∂α < 0, ∂q/∂α > 0, and |∂p/∂α| > |∂q/∂α|. You have a theory that x = f (p(α,β),q(α,β)), where f 1'(p,q) > 0 and f '2(p,q) > 0 for all (p,q). Are your observations consistent with your theory? Are your observations consistent with a theory that imposes the stronger restriction that f 1'(p,q) > f '2(p,q) > 0 for all (p,q)?" my brain stutters and then just stops. *headdesk*

2) In other news, I'm still playing catch-up with Bones. I've got my hands on Season 3 DVDs and I've been catching random Season 4 episodes on TV. The problem with watching the series out of order is that the timeline gets all screwed up in my head. Whatever happened to Angela's ex(? divorced? no divorce?)husband, and why was Hodgins popping the marriage question in the middle of Season 3 when they almost got married at the end of Season 2?

2.25) Lance Sweets is so adorable, seemingly professional until he slips up with a "totally" or "lame" and being tag-teamed by Brennan and Booth. I admit to squeeing a teeny bit when he said he did his undergrad in psychology at UofT -- and I started thinking, why didn't I go into abnormal psychology? Then I had to remind myself that I liked (like) social psychology much more as an area of research.

2.50) I don't usually read Bones fic, but I do have a massive soft spot for crossovers. So, recs!

Bones/SPN: This short Bones/SPN fic was the one that got me interested in Bones in the first place. I read it having no clue who Brennan and Booth were, but with dialogue like this:

Brennan considers this. "No, I don't think Sam and Dean are currently in a sexual relationship. But they're two attractive, virile young men who don't have much meaningful contact with other people. So it wouldn't be surprising if they developed feelings for each other."

Booth stares some more. "Only you would say that gay incest isn't surprising."


I decided that Brennan and Booth must be pretty awesome characters. Now that I've watched the show, Brennan convincing Sam and Dean that gay incest is a good idea doesn't seem very far-fetched at all. ;) Also: Sweets/Castiel (and sequel), hilariously brilliant, Y/Y? I watched the episode where Sweets convinces Brennan and Booth to go on a double date with him and his girlfriend, and all I could think of was, "Omg, B & B are going to meet Castiel. At a pottery class."

Bones/SGA: Abnormal Psychology by [livejournal.com profile] siriaeve, where Sweets is all cute and eager and totally fails to communicate with Sheppard.
a sam adams moment by the same author, where "Shep-Man" Sheppard and "Booster" Booth reunite in Atlantis, Rodney and Brennan bond over lab space, Cam Saroyan is the "other Colonel Cam", and Angela makes eyes at Ronon.

Bones/J2: Gunshy by [livejournal.com profile] setissma. This one isn't actually a crossover, but I'm sneaking it in here anyway. It's a J2 AU based off of Bones, with Jared and Jensen in the roles of Booth and Brennan, respectively. This one's also quite a bit longer than the other fics I linked (36 000 words versus 1000~2000, so make sure you have plenty of time before you sit down with this one ;)). It's long and plotty and, according to the author, scientifically accurate.

3) Speaking of TV...

Shows to follow when they resume in September:
-Supernatural
-Bones
-The Big Bang Theory
-Psych
-Merlin

Shows to possibly check out:
-Leverage
-Fringe
-Dollhouse
-Stargate Universe

School work? What school work? :D

For some unknown reason, I'd been desperately craving for a J2 tennis!AU for a month before my trip, back in June. I'd wanted to read a tennis!AU so much that I'd even started writing one out myself. But the fic-granting gods smiled upon me, and as I was randomly clicking around one evening at my aunt's place in Shanghai, I came across this lovely gem. I think there may have been a happy squeak upon seeing the words "Wimbledon", "rivalry", "Jensen", and "Jared" in the summary.

I highly recommend [livejournal.com profile] lazy_daze's Topspin (since it's an AU, I think even the non-SPN Tenipuri fans on my flist may enjoy this :)). It's well-paced, full of tension, and scorching hot.

I miss drawing tennis!boys, so I did a bit of a sketch based on the fic:

Tennis!boys, J2-style \o/ )

Sorry Sorry is ridiculously catchy. I've had it on repeat non-stop for the past half hour. I hope the rest of the album is as good as this!

eta: And speaking of Korean music, I randomly downloaded Songs for Ophelia by Ibadi on some music rotation community yesterday, and oh man, the entire album is just gorgeous. Try out one of the tracks here! I highly recommend the entire mini album.

Reading Week needs to be Reading freakin' Month. I've been lounging around at home for the past four days and sleeping ten hours a night and it's been awesome. I spent all afternoon yesterday reading Merlin!fic -- Drastically Redefining Protocol and The Crown of the Summer Court, to be precise. I highly recommend both of them -- neither of them really require any knowledge of canon to be read and enjoyed.

Anyway, that got me into the mood to draw a bit of Merlin!fanart, and one of my favourite things to draw is shiny hair, so:

Morgana of the shiny shiny hair )

Arthur and Merlin are adorable, of course (I re-watched the unicorn episode over lunch -- the plot is laughable, but ugh, the boys are just so, so cute), but Morgana is just more fun to draw (because she has gorgeous hair and gorgeous dresses and she's just gorgeous all in all -- and I also like her accent, but that is neither here nor there).

While drawing, I was listening to a random J2 audiofic (I blame [livejournal.com profile] trolleys for my curiousity..! I've never been into RPF [Suju ttly doesn't count, obvs], so...idk) and now I'm in the mood to watch a bit more of Supernatural. I've armed myself with a huge teddy bear so that I can bury my face in it when things get scary. *is prepared and ready to go*

1. Wonder Boys will never not be delightful to watch (though their previous performance was a bit better). The dance moves! The slinky slinky hips! Hee! How cute are Sungmin and Taemin? And that boy from 2AM (I think...? 2AM and 2PM...are they two different bands? [livejournal.com profile] dear_whimsy??) has awesome facial expressions.

2a. So, funny story. Last week, people on LJ were saying how they watched SGA 5x19 and how alkdjfs;k awesome it was. Thing is, the episode is due to air on January 2nd. For a moment, I had thought that maybe I skipped forward in time! Yes, that would mean that I missed out on a week-and-a-half of vacation time, but maybe it would also mean that I had somehow finished all my grad school apps! But then common sense kicked in and I realized the episode was leaked online -- and of course I rushed to download it. I've watched it several times since because it is just that awesome. The downside was that I still had to do all my applications myself (two done, three more to go! or four more. IDK.)

2b. 5x20, the show finale (D:!!!), was leaked online as well. I kind of want to watch it, but at the same time, I really really don't (and not just because of the McKeller line). I never did watch the Season 10 finale of Friends -- I've watched almost every episode of that show at least twice, but not the finale. In my mind, if I don't watch the ending, then it hasn't ended! How's that for awesome logic?

3a. Does anyone know where I could obtain the Merlin soundtrack? I found a handful of torrents, but none of them had seeders. :(

3b. I haven't been actively seeking out Merlin fic, but I came across this Merlin fratboy!AU and it's pretty fabulous (check out the sequel too!). The thing I like about fanfic, compared to original fiction, is that no matter what kind of crazy setting you throw the characters into, they are still essentially the characters you know and care about (the assumption here is that you're reading good!fic ;) none of that fanfiction.net stuff). It's like going out with good friends instead of meeting new strangers.

7. I've lost my train of thought. There are cherries downstairs and I want to eat 'em.
