Here’s the first batch of top fives. I jumped around a lot, but that’s just because I’m random. More to come later.

ozmissage: (SPN. Bela Talbot does what she wants.)

Did everyone have a good Easter? Or a good Sunday if you don’t celebrate?

*points to icon* I have a Bela talbot icon! Oh Bela, in a perfect world there would be a show about you being awesome and stealing stuff, possibly with Parker from Leverage and Miles Straume. I want to live in that Altverse.

It’s too late to type a proper update and I’m kind of queasy from too much Easter supper and too much time in the sunshine (the Easter bunny brought my niece a kiddie croquet set which meant lots of outside time today) so I’m breaking out an old meme:

Ask me my fannish Top Five [whatevers]. Any top fives. Doesn't matter what, really! And I will answer them all in a new post.

Tomorrow is going to be devoted to writing, so making lists will be a nice distraction in between my inevitable, “Oh my God how do you string words into sentences again?” angst.

ozmissage: (XF. Mulder/Scully.)

This is a pre-emptive post because I’m probably not going to be around tomorrow afternoon to properly monitor the goings on over at [livejournal.com profile] f_march_madness. But it’s looking like Dana Scully and Dean Winchester are going to be facing off and I want to get this out there now.

This isn’t about how great Dean Winchester is, this isn’t about how he cries the manliest of man tears or how he’s snarky and likes pie. He’s cool I’ll admit it.

But this is bigger than him. This is about respecting history. This is about realizing that without The X-Files there would be no Supernatural. This is about a tiny, red-headed FBI agent who stood by her partner even when she thought he was nuts, who killed monsters while wearing heels. This about an insanely intelligent, brilliant woman who made it okay for each and every one of us to be the gigantic nerds that we are.

This is about being ten years old and turning on the television week after week and seeing a competent, strong, badass of a woman perform autopsies without flinching, whip out her gun and face a baddie twice her size, and still make time to challenge her partner's craziness even when she knew it was going to be a thankless job. It’s about a woman who worked in a man’s world, existed in a man’s genre and owned every inch of it.

This is about Dana Scully.

Cut because Scully's awesomeness requires many words... )
ozmissage: (BTVS. Buffy. Salesman.)

Oh God, how am I already going crazy over this? Oh right because fandom is already making bad choices. Listen universe when you are asked to choose between voting for a panty sniffing bad poetry writing attempted rapist and Buffy freaking Summers you vote Buffy. How hard is that? Or you vote Cordy. Or Fred. Or Willow. Or Dawnie. Or if you must vote penis, vote Oz or Charles Gunn or Xander Harris or Rupert Giles or anyone who is not a panty sniffing bad poetry writing attempted rapist. Damn it Spike, you are not winning this.

Also? Barney Stinson. Seriously? Seriously? He picked up a girl right in front of his ex the day after they broke up. He used her to pick someone else up. This is not cute. This is not adorable behavior. This is asshatery. This is gross. This is wrong. Don’t vote for this guy. There are four other people on this show who are actually legen-yes I’m using his own catchphrase against him-dary. A vote for them is a vote against an immature douche bag. A vote for them will save a puppy. A vote for them might very well save the world. Do it.

And finally: Sawyer is winning by one vote. Sawyer is not undeserving, he’s a good guy. Hell, I like him. But Sawyer doesn’t want you to vote for him. When you vote for him you ruin his street cred. He doesn’t like to be liked, he doesn’t respond well to it (see faked kidnapping/gun snatching plotline that went nowhere).

Sawyer wants you to vote for Juliet. The woman he loved, the woman that made him a real boy. He wants you to vote for the woman who always had his back. Who detonated an H-bomb because she thought it would get him home. The woman who faced the smoke monster and didn’t blink. Who will make you sandwiches with toothpicks. The woman who eats ice-cream after sex and will perform an emergency appendectomy to save your life. The woman who listens to “Downtown” and reads Stephen King novels and speaks Latin and is made of awesomeness and rainbows.

The woman who made him happy.

Remember that fandom. A vote for Juliet will knock that emo-frown right off Sawyer’s face. And I know you all want him to be happy, right?

Oh and in the SPN race, vote Bela. Just because.

Home Team 2009 Vote!

So I just found out someone is hosting a proper awesome ladies challenge as opposed to that crapfest that was floating around a few weeks ago wherein a dude won the HBIC poll. I don’t care if he’s gay, fandom. Does he have a penis? Then he’s still a dude. Sheesh.

Anyway, I did not care about this twenty-four hours ago, but now I have serious feelings about who should win. River Tam is currently being beaten by Miss Piggy. We need to stop this flist. She’s River Tam. She can kill you with her brain. She took down a whole slew of Reavers single handedly. She’s the coolest mind-reading, ship flying, ass-kicking seventeen year old in the verse. She needs to beat the puppet.

Also, Laura Roslin is getting beaten by M. I just…she’s Laura Roslin! Is there anyone cooler than her? If you don’t vote Laura she will put your ass out the airlock.

I’m already beating myself up for failing to discover this in time to save Juliet Burke. Not to mention Dana Scully, Kara Thrace, Anya, Anne Shirley, and Donna fricken Noble. So many awesome ladies, so little time.

Seriously though check it out. There’s also a fic challenge going on. I think[profile] cidercupcakes deserves some serious props for putting this together. I love seeing the ladies get some love for a change. So go, vote, pimp and remember if you don’t vote for River, the Alliance wins.

Back to writing now.
