The Mentalist is eating my brain. No, seriously.

In case anyone missed it, I've become slightly addicted to The Mentalist in recent weeks. 

I believe that I've gone through about 95% of the good Jane/Lisbon fic out there (I WILL NOT REFER TO IT AS JISBON, C'MON NOW).  I've been borrowing Season One and Season Two DVDs from the library.  I've been hitting up the Mentalist Wikipedia.

So I was bored at work the other day and thinking about the show and the characters (mostly Lisbon because I think I am INFATUATED with her omg) and then I got to thinking about Red John  =) 

This is 100% speculation on my part, no spoilers.

Is this an old theory and I'm just creepily excited for some reason?  

I've been watching this show WAY too much.

The Mentalist...?

Should I start watching THE MENTALIST??

Worth catching occasional reruns.
4(40.0%)
Nope, it sucks.
0(0.0%)
Meh, if nothing else is on.
3(30.0%)
YES. OMG YESSSSSS DO IT NOW.
3(30.0%)
YES AND I WILL LEND YOU DVDS TO CATCH UP ON IT!!!
0(0.0%)


So, umm, yea.  I keep catching random episodes of this show on TNT when I'm between Olympic events (OMG OLYMPICS WHY CAN YOU NOT LAST FOREVERRRRRRR????)  I need a new show, don't want a freshmen newbie because the ones I like always get cancelled.

I vaguely remember a couple of people on my flist fangirling this show over the years so figure someone can help me make the decision  ;)

Also, I already know just from reading the WIkipedia entry on the character backgrounds (thank you Wiki, my favorite research tool) that I would MASSIVELY ship Jane/Lisbon.  y/n?  Which episodes/arcs should I watch??? 

*headdesk*

D'oh

I am utterly and helplessly obsessed with watching the Olympics.  

Unable to function.  

Be back... well, whenever they're finished and I have a chance to recover.  

Damn.
River Song, motherfuckers

FORGOT HOW MUCH I MISSED SEEING ROBERT DOWNEY JR AS TONY STARK ON THE BIG SCREEN, OMG.

I know, I never post here anymore. I'm always working or dog sitting or attempting sleep or working some more (CRY MOAR, SELF).

BUT WHATEVER, OK, BECAUSE I JUST SAW THE AVENGERS AND MY FANGIRLING IS AT A WHOLE NEW LEVEL OF CRAZY.

AND I'M SEVERELY IN NEED OF TONY/PEPPER AWESOME!SMUT. (umm, I'm pretty sure I had this exact reaction after watching Ironman 2, lol)

And, yes, the NCIS finale was last week and I have Thoughts about that.

And, yes, the House finale was this week and I have No Thoughts about that.

BUT SORRY, TOO BUSY BEING SUPER OBSESSED WITH TONY/PEPPER (again). UMMM CAN IT BE 2013 SO I CAN SEE IRONMAN 3 PLZ?!

(Also, I may be mildly shipping Black Widow/Hawkeye...maybe...not 100% sure yet...)

Fic: de capo al Fine (Tony/Ziva)

Title: da capo al Fine (from the beginning to the end) 
Author: Icarus (icarus_abides) 
Rating: T - a few swear words, some adult themes; an AU Apocafic
Spoilers: Nothing in particular, but I’m going to say that it probably would best be put into around Season Seven’s timeline.   
Disclaimers: NCIS does not belong to me (which is probably a good thing since, tbh, I’d have a whole hour of Ziva naked).  Any movie references in here also do not belong to me.  Don’t sue.  My dogs have huge veterinary bills. 
 
Author’s Note:  This is the first fic that I’ve written in a LONG time.  Also my first NCIS fic.  I’ve been trying to catch up on past episodes but am still kind of behind so I very much apologize if there are some hiccups between my fic and show cannon.  This is a Tony-centric piece, which I find strange because Ziva is by FAR my favorite character.  Guess I can relate better to DiNozzo?  (Terrifying.)  A fantastically awesome thanks to my beta, anr (aka, the most talented writer I know).  Thanks for being so forgiving with my grammar and plot difficulties ;)

Apparently I am going to have to find a Tony/Ziva userpic. Damn.

Whole entry dedicated to Tony/Ziva.  Heads up.  <3 

And, no, I am not going to call them Tiva.  It sounds stupid and juvenile (just a few lengths behind whichever geniuses deemed "Shweir" to be an acceptable nickname for Sheppard/Weir over in Atlantis).  C'mon, now.  

I have quickly found that this ship community is, for the most part... how to put this delicately... ah yes, "batshit crazy".  I feel like I have just stumbled upon a television couple who has just been on the radar too long and has now attracted obscene amounts of those rabid, maniacal fangirls/boys who are too immature to appreciate a pairing in any way other than obnoxiously giving the middle finger to the rest of the NCIS fans.  It reminds me of what Benson/Stabler (SVU) and House/Cuddy (House) gradually deteriorated into once they became Mainstream And Super Popular.  I've been watching the past seasons of NCIS (thanks for that, USA network!) and wish SO HARD that I had started watching this show back then.  It was just so fun and I love the characters and can easily see me becoming a super shipper who looked forward to each week with the anxiety levels that I used to have while watching the aforementioned Atlantis or The Best Couple EVAR on Farscape.  Its strange to want to enjoy and fangirl a couple this much but not have a sufficient place to do so.  I mean, I've always been able to find a message board or an LJ community that I really enjoyed for each pairing of shows that I've watched* but all the ones that I've checked out so far for Tony/Ziva haven't been too attractive.  

(*A moment of silence please for capslock_lies.  It was so much fun.) 

ANYWAY, I still love them.  I DO.  Even without a constant flailing presence except the handful of people on my flist who ship them as well *waves to you people*  So, because I've been procrastinating writing up an actual review of how I'm liking this season compared to the rest (since I'm doing a MASSIVE EPISODE BINGE while trying to catch up) or how irritated I was by a few things in the past two weeks (Very Important Episodes), I'll just post pretty things!  YAY!! 

Things liiiike this video that I found that I just kept watching to keep my shipper adrenaline going.  And then had to hunt down the music so that I could add it to my Running iPod.  Nice.



OR fanfic recs.  Dude.  I love me some well-written fanfic.  Here's one or two... or half a dozen...

(And, yea, most of them are dirty.  I know you like those the best anyway.  THERE IS NO JUDGEMENT HERE.

Move In Circles - anr 
Every City in Between - anr
Dreamland -littlesammy ---> THIS may be my most favorite fic that I've read for this fandom.  So, its AU and kinda-apocafic, but its fantastic. 
Double Feature - littlesammy
Quake - jelenamichel
No Time For Maybes - starryjules

I've read SO. MUCH. FANFIC. recently that, tbh, this is a rather short list.  BUT I'M TIRED, MM'KAY?  And I'm trying ohsohard to not get involved writing any fanfic of my own.  

Wait... another vid...

Leaving this unlocked in case anyone not on my flist would like to add in their two cents.

American Horror Story

Is anyone else watching this show?

I was hesitant to start it because I'm scared that it'll be axed since its just starting and I don't have a good track record in that area.

But I have now watched the first two episodes and may be in trouble with this one...

Munich?

Hello flist!

Random question buuuuut is anyone here (or know anyone) in Munich?  A friend of mine is going to Ocktoberfest and is worried about getting around the city (she doesn't speak any German).  She's younger and in college, very worried about being out there solo.

Just lemme know  ;)
