Shipping Challenge - Day 30

 Day 30 - Favorite 'Ship Forever and Ever and Ever: Chloe & Lex from Smallville



Chloe and Lex are the very definition of OTP for me. I watched solely for the mere chance these two would have a scene together. I spun every piece of information to make it work out for them to be together; not easy when the characters hate each other. I was desperate enough just to be happy if these two appeared in back to back scenes. And why? Because whether working together or going head to head, their scenes always sizzled. Always going for what they wanted. Always knowing the score. These two knew the consequences of their actions and suffered for them, but each in their own way came out better for it. They were realistic. They were intelligent. And my god, they were awesome. And despite never getting so much as a single kiss, I still love them.

But more than just watching the show, this ‘ship is where I first participated in fandom. I gave my first reviews, wrote my first stories, made my first fanvids, and made some great friends. All thanks to NS and Chlex.

 Day 29 - Pairing with the Best Proposal: Wolf & Virginia from The 10th Kingdom



Wolf’s initial proposal was conventional, but the singing ring is what made it. Those songs can easily get stuck in your head, making you crazy enough to accept the proposal just to shut it up. Though why you would turn down Wolf, I wouldn’t understand. The final proposal makes me so happy because a singing ring never fails to get his girl, and Wolf is ecstatic. Huff Puff!

 Day 28 - Pairing that You Will Never Understand: Joey & Rachel from Friends



I don’t get it. You have a show that for a majority of the series focused on the back and forth of Ross & Rachel, and whether you liked it or not, how could anyone think it wasn’t going to work out for them in the end? I especially don’t see why Joey would get in the middle of that when he saw it first hand. Why did we have a build up that went through a couple of seasons and fizzled out in a matter of episodes? And when it was over, it was like it had no impact on either of the characters. So what is the attraction? Is it just because they are both pretty? If so, sorry, but I need more to understand a ‘ship.

 Day 27 - Pairing that You Loved and Ended Up Hating: Luke & Lorelai from Gilmore Girls



I rooted for this couple from the beginning, but then season six happened. After everything with April, Anna, and Christopher; I ceased caring. Both Luke and Lorelai behaved stupidly, and, while I was satisfied that they eventually got back together, I was nowhere near as excited the first time(s) around.

Day 26 - Pairing You Hated But Ended Up Loving: Echo (Caroline Farrell) & Paul Ballard from Dollhouse



 I was against this pairing from the start. The show even stated how cliché it was for the investigator to fall for the woman he was hoping to save in the investigation. I was more intrigued by the idea of Echo/Alpha or Echo/Perrin, and Paul/Millie (November). However, more than any other pairing, I cared most about Victor/Sierra. Truth be told, I didn’t start to like this pairing until after Ballard was dead when Echo freaked out. I liked the ending they got where Ballard’s personality was uploaded into Echo’s brain. I thought that was a pretty sweet way they could always be together. And honestly, I was just really happy Joss didn’t kill off Victor or Sierra. Finally got my happy ending in a Joss Whedon show!

 Day 25 - Pairing that Would be Adorable, But Could Never Work Out: Nick & Sara from CSI



They were cute, fun, and flirty. Serious moments always showed they genuinely cared about one another. They each had childhood trauma in their past so they understood one another better than others in the group probably did. However, the writers continued with the would they/won’t they angsty relationship of Grissom & Sara. But that doesn’t stop me from hoping Grissom and Sara’s long-distance marriage ends in heartbreak causing Sara to turn to Nick for comfort. Plus, their 'ship is called Snickers.  Who doesn't love Snickers?

 Day 24 - Crazy Love Triangle that Worked Out Badly: Wesley/Fred/Gunn from Angel



Poor, sweet Wesley fell for Fred but took too long to tell her his feelings before Gunn made his interest known. Then he finally summed up the courage and they got together, but in the next episode Fred was infected by the demon god Illyria. By the end of the series, Wesley was dead, and Gunn was halfway there. Thanks Joss.

 Day 23: Crazy Love Triangle that Worked Out Great: Crichton/Aeryn/Crichton from Farscape


Crichton is “twinned” and each one is equal and not a copy of the other. Both are John Crichton. First of all, it’s the recipe for some of the smuttiest fanfics imaginable. More importantly, when Aeryn discovers she is pregnant, because of Sebacean biology, the baby could either be from the one night stand she had with Crichton before he was twinned or from the relationship she had with Talyn-Crichton, no way of knowing for certain. Either way, Moya-Crichton accepts the child as his and everything works out happily for him and Aeryn. It’s win/win for everyone…except for Talyn-Crichton.

 Day 21 - Pairing You Like and No One Else Understands Why: Mel & Oz from Breaking In

How do I explain this without sounding weird? I probably can’t. Perhaps it was lack of viable options. I thought Mel was cool, and I liked Dutch, Cash, and Oz the most. But Dutch was really just too dumb for me to appreciate in a pairing, and Cash was took geeky for Mel. Oz was cool and I liked that older man/younger woman aspect. Blame my current obsession with Jeff & Annie on it, if you must. Anyways, doesn’t matter now because Breaking In was cancelled. Thanks Fox…not!

Day 20 - The Can't Stand the Sexual Tension Anymore Pairing: Ron & Hermione from the Harry Potter Series

 

The fighting! The awkward tension! The angst over each other’s significant others! The angst…period! I love them, but they drove me crazy. Still, they were one of the reasons I loved the series. I expect when they kiss, I’ll squee just as loudly in the theater as I did when reading the final book.

Day 19: Pairing You've Rooted for from the Beginning: Josh & Donna from The West Wing



In my case, it as close to the beginning as I can get with “A Proportional Response” being the first episode I saw. Josh interviewing Charlie being the first scene, and when Donna came in and they had their little banter moment, I was immediately hooked. It took seven years, dealing with three of Donna’s boyfriends, two Josh & Amy relationships, two near death experiences, countless longing looks and fun banter, but it finally worked out in the end. How much do I love this ‘ship? Let me put it this way: if this ‘ship was in an accident, I wouldn’t stop for red lights.

 Day 18 - Cutest Pairing: Amy & Rory from Doctor Who



Amy may wear the pants in this family, but we all know Rory can be a total BAMF. And whenever they are together, they have the cutest, loveliest moments. As long as Rory can manage to survive (Amy too, for that matter), this ‘ship won’t go the completely tragic route. How could you not love them? She loves him and his stupid face, and he waited 2000 years for her.

 Day 17 - Pairing I Thought Would Never Work Out, But Did: Sydney & Vaughn from Alias



So when Jennifer Garner & Michael Vartan broke up, I thought the relationship between Sydney & Vaughn would go too because, you know…awkwardness. And though I was fairly certain Vaughn was never really died, I still thought it was a pretty convenient way to get rid of Vartan and the awkwardness. Not that I wanted that. I’d much rather look at Vaughn every week than Sydney, but the show was about her, so what can you do? In the end, I was glad everything worked out: Vaughn lived and he & Sydney got their happy spy-ending.

Though I’ll never watch characters ride in cars the same way ever again.

 Day 16 - Absolute Worst Pairing: Lex Luthor & Lana Lang from Smallville



I despise this pairing so much, I refused to look for a picture of the two of them together. I can’t fathom for a moment why clever, sophisticated Lex Luthor would want some simple girl from a small town who has nothing to offer but looks and a seemingly sweet attitude. That is a dream for teenage boys who know no better. I can see it as a writer’s grandiose idea at the beginning of a series that was held onto tightly long after its importance to the show waned. The sixth season where most of the “relationship” focused was poorly planned and executed. There was no chemistry. Every scene felt as forced as the effort it took me to watch them.

 Day 15: Favorite Real Life Pairing: Alexis Denisof & Alyson Hannigan



How could you not smile when you see pictures of these two? They are so cute together. According to IMDb:

She asked him out when they first met on the Buffy the Vampire Slayer set, but he declined, citing a personal rule against dating coworkers. By the time he left the show, she was already dating someone else, but [they] became friends regardless, eventually becoming so close that other people assumed they were dating. They finally decided to take the plunge and enter into a genuine romantic relationship, but not without fears that, if it didn’t work out, they might wreck their friendship.

That right there is the stuff fictional ‘ships dream of being made of.

Day 14 - Favorite Book Pairing: Remus & Tonks from the Harry Potter series


 
From the moment Tonks yelled at Remus about not calling her Nymphadora, and he replied so calmly about it, I thought “They are so going to hook up.” At the end of Half-Blood Prince, I was so happy with Tonks’ exclamation about loving Remus (which I already knew anyway because no way was she moping over Sirius), I momentarily forgot to be sad about Dumbledore. And Deathly Hallows broke my heart in several different ways, I still haven’t fully come to an acceptance on their ending. However, through all the ups and downs, this is my favorite pairing perhaps because we didn’t get to see a lot of it first hand and have to interpret and imagine most of their life together. I like having the basics and imagining the rest; makes reading fanfic a lot of fun. All the same though, if JKR decided to write a book completely about them, I read it in a heartbeat.

 Day 13 - Favorite TV Pairing: Jack & Jennifer from Days of Our Lives


About 95% of my ‘ships are TV pairings, so I went with the pairing that expresses best what I look for in all of my ‘ships. Jack and Jennifer had their great dramatic moments, but they were also fun together and fun to watch. Their differences complimented each other and helped each of them grow. And their similarities kept them together and gave them reason to continue working on their relationship. All of which was necessary to get them through Jack’s disappearances and apparent deaths. (And damn you Days! They will get back together!)

 Day 12 - Best Wedding: Zack & Kelly from Saved by the Bell



They had an elegant, outdoor wedding. Kelly was in a simple, yet beautiful wedding dress.  The bridesmaids’ dresses were pretty. There was even a moment of surprise when Jessie showed up at the last minute but without the lasting drama a wedding interruption could have. Though not technically a part of the wedding, that montage of Zack & Kelly moments still pulls at my heart. If I go to Las Vegas to get married, this is the wedding I want.

These two are my dream pairing because it is my dream that the proposed fourth season by the writers and producers seen here: http://www.reeves-stevens.com/TLWSUMMARY1.pdf will be made so that I can finally see this couple get together for real. Marguerite and Roxton were fun and sexy, and I loved their dynamic. Alas, I fear it shall always be a dream trapped in that strange place known as The Lost World.

 Day 9 - Most Believable Relationship: Chandler & Monica from Friends



This is the kind of relationship that I would want to have. To start out as friends and develop into something more sounds really sweet. These two didn’t have the crazy ups and downs that Ross & Rachel had. They had realistic fears and problems in their relationship, and they worked out those problems to better their relationship. Chandler’s speech to Erica about Monica being a mother without a child is still one of my favorite speeches ever and makes me cry just thinking about it. These two will always be the ideal relationship. And if I can have it with Matthew Perry, all the better.

 Day 8 - Ship with the Most Baggage: Danny & Michelle Santos from Guiding Light



As with all soap operas, this relationship came with a multitude of problems. Bad enough Michelle started off their marriage in love with another man, but add the fact that the reason they got married was so Danny could protect her from his mobster mother who was bent on killing Michelle as revenge for her oldest son's death, and well it's just not the perfect recipe for a healthy marriage. Still, Danny & Michelle survived mobsters, divorces, amnesia, kidnappings, a question of paternity, and even an actress change.

 Day 7 - Most Heartbreaking Scene: Doctor & Rose from Doctor Who in "Doomsday"





Death, in a way, is at least a form of closure. There is no closure in this moment. Being separated from someone you love, knowing you want to be with that person and that person wants to be with you, and knowing you’ll never be together again is the most heartbreaking idea I can imagine.

 Day 6 - Best Kiss: Hawkeye & Margaret from M*A*S*H



Hawkeye and Margaret’s goodbye kiss was amazing because they both knew it was the only proper way to say goodbye. Plus Col. Potter, BJ, and Charles have to stand there the entire time trying to act casual about the whole thing. And then, Hawkeye and Margaret are so “well, that’s done” about it in the end. It was the best way to end that UST that had been building up for years and had been only momentarily resolved at times, and it maintained humor. M*A*S*H at its perfection.

 Day 4: Pairing with the Most Chemistry - Spike & Buffy from Buffy the Vampire Slayer




I think it is pretty obvious the amount of chemistry these two have. Whether they are fighting, hanging out, having sex, or just being near each other, the electricity in their scenes is palpable. Some of their fights scenes even look like sex. Some of their fight scenes turned into sex. Exhibit A: They brought down a house with their sexual mojo.

I think I’ll leave it at their chemistry literally burned.

Bloody Valentine - Chlex music video


So Kit Merlot bought my efforts for a Chlex video.  I'm not an expert at this video stuff and I don't have professional software but I gave this my best.  Actually, I think those amazing vidders who can do all the special stuff don't have professional software either.  I think they are like MacGuyver and make them with a stick of gum and a rubberband whereas they make awesome videos instead of working bombs.

Anyway, I shared a few ideas with Kit, and settled on a video I wanted to do since Jimmy came to Smallville which is have Lex kill him in the name of love for Chloe.  Four years later, I finally made it.

I hope people like it, especially Kit!

BTW, I do not own any of the footage or music used in the video and I make no profit from this work.

RIP Brock


     

He was a good dog.  Never complained when I gave him a bath or had to shave him bald for the summer.  Liked to curl up next to people in bed and take up all the space.  Hide under the bed during thunderstorms.  Played well with his brother Remus, played not so well with his brother Spike.  Always eager to greet someone at the door.  To quote Parker from Friends: Bow-wow old friend, bow-wow.

Goodbye my lovable, cuddly wolf.

Just a Smallville wondering...

A lot of Smallville fans thought it wrong of Lois to sleep with Grant because he was her editor, and I understand and agree it was bad ethically, but for my part it was more the fact that it was so quickly after she was hired that she hooked with Grant (and no emotion beyond 'You're hot! Let's do it!') so it led to no other reason than he hired her so he could get into her pants.  And when she asked and he claimed she was hired for her writing on the Combat piece, she was either stupid for buying that or she didn't care that it was an obvious lie and got her where she wanted.  No way someone gets hired because of one piece in what was a well known magazine rag.

Smallville Videos

I set this place up likes months ago and never made an attempt to mention it on my livejournal (not like it would increase awareness anyway).  Edit: Actually, it turns out I did mention this, I just didn't go into more detail.  Oh well, not like anyone is reading this anyway, and it's my livejournal. I'll do whatever I want.

But basically, due to anger of my videos getting muted on YouTube, I set up SmallvilleTube at http://smallvilletube.ning.com/

All videos pertaining to Smallville (or even briefly mention SV) can be posted there.  I don't care who you 'ship, what you think about the characters or the show, if it mentions Smallville and you need a place to post it, then this is where you can do so.  In other words, if you have videos mocking the show or the characters, post it here, because that's what most of my videos do.  I'm not going to delete anyone's account or video just because it may be offensive to a particular 'ship or those characters, and that includes mine (Chlex).  Note: I said the 'ship and characters, you start calling out fans in a bad way and I will assess the situation.  For instance, a video can mock Chlex (the 'ship) but not a Chlexer (the fan), because I know that the 'ship is unrealistic in that the characters hate each other, but I don't want to hear that I'm stupid for liking them (I can tell myself I'm stupid, thank you very much).  Likewise, I mock Clana for being boring, but I'm sure Clana fans have their reasons for liking it (even if it's not readily understandable to me).  If you feel that you can't handle posting in a place where people are going to disagree, then maybe this isn't the place for you, but so far this place has been very positive (I so just jinxed it now.)

Why is it that I allow the mockery?  Because I'm offensive to some 'ships and characters. (I know that is SOOOO rude! Whatever, it's what I do. I hate your favorite character, I haven't shot your dog in front of you.  I like dogs, they are like wolves...except for the smaller dogs like toy poodles and chihuahuas...they are yappy and annoying...like Lana...I still wouldn't shoot them though...Lana, on the other hand...)

Share this with anyone you know who makes Smallville videos and is looking for a place to post them.   So come, post, comment, and make groups if your fandom group isn't up yet because there needs to be more of them.

Harper's Island Fic: Just Cal (PG-13)

Disclaimer: I own no part of Harper's Island.

Spoilers: Splash

AN: I dedicate this story to my friend skauble because she agreed, encouraged and offered notes for how I could pull this off. First, let me say I know it's a stretch but in the realm of possibilities I'd heard about Harper's Island. It's no more unlikely then say Danny being John Wakefield's son.

Just Cal

Several thoughts might have occurred to Chloe as she fell to the river below:

One was that she might have just this world in one of the greatest ways of all time. She went out on her own terms. No victim to a psychopath who probably wasn’t loved enough in his life. Just a victim of love: the best kind of all.

Driving Permit

So five years after I first got my driving permit when I was 18 (can you tell I'm not interested in driving?), I finally got another permit to try again since I did nothing to learn how to drive the first time.  It's still not my idea but with going back to school and it being more likely that I'll be living with my grandparents off campus, I'll have to learn.  I still really want to look into getting a dorm.

The thing that irks me is that I actually studied this time for the test, I even did actual reading beyond just skimming (ok I skimmed some parts) and I still missed the same number of questions that I missed last time when I didn't study.

POINTLESS!

I just don't want to drive and I think people on the road would feel much safer if I weren't driving just as I would not being on the road.  I'm cool with public transportation and I get that bumming rides can be annoying to my friends so I can live with not going out much.  In fact I like not going out much.  I'm a perfectly happy homebody and I can walk to places when I need something.

Just because I'm not the average person, doesn't mean I'm not well adjusted.

Let me walk, dammit!  (or live near everything I need)

So many changes in my life, first off, I got new glasses and I'm trying contacts so that's cool.

Even better is that I got into the Master of the Arts Professional Writing program at Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, Georgia.

I've also started a fan place for creators of Smallville videos to post their videos without fear of the music getting blocked like at YouTube so please visit smallvilletube.ning.com to post your Smallville inspired videos.  Any and all ships are welcomed and any feelings about the show are welcomed as well.

Also I found a bunch of cool Friends GIFs that I will be using (as you can see by my current userpic).

I can not be more pissed about ABC's decision to cancel Pushing Daisies...I know the game....commercials pay for the production of shows and the way you get more sponsors is by apparently having better ratings...but let's face facts.  People hate commercials unless they are particularly clever or are during the Superbowl.   They fast foward through them when watching shows through DVR, they change the channel when they come on, and nothing pisses a person off more to see ads pop up during a show or to see obvious product placement when they are trying to be sincere about it....stupid Stride and Smallville!   Most people illegally download online so they can skip out on the commercials and last night while I was using ABC's website to catch that episode of Private Practice...they didn't even show the commercials!  Instead I had to wait 20 seconds during each break while a blank screen popped up for no reason...unless someone is advertising a black hole?!
