Since even including what I've posted only puts this at 6, the seven pages bit has to be put aside. But seven lines down, here are the next seven lines.

Damn it brain, why won't you let me finish! But I did stare at it until I finally managed to peck out a sentence. That's progress, right?

One year I'll do this on the first of December! But then again, would that have the same effect as dividing by zero?

Post titles for 2011!

Lets see if any make sense out of context! )

You can learn a lot about someone by the music they listen to. Hit
shuffle on your iPod or mp3 player and write down the first 20 songs. No
cheating or skipping songs that are shameful. That is the fun!

Music! )

Because anything more than copy and pasting is beyond me just now.

The problem with LJ: we all think we are so close, but really, we know nothing about each other. So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away.

Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you.

I need help learning to put words together in a sentence again, so it is meme time!

The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request a drabble/ficlet of any pairing/character of their choosing from me.

1. [livejournal.com profile] geekbynight Baltar/Ellen, distraction
2. [livejournal.com profile] dreamaway78 Adama/Roslin - Could it be a continuation of your Grade School Galactica Series?
3. [livejournal.com profile] obsessive_a101 Lee and Kara - playing portals; Laura does the commentary.
4. [livejournal.com profile] astreamofstars Laura having a conversation with the hybrid.

Please, help me with prompts!

Post a comment, and I will reply with one or two reasons why I think you're great. In return, you have to post this same meme on your blog and comment for other people.

You were born during a Waxing Crescent moon

- what it says about you -

You like having a clear vision of the future, and are good at helping people set out plans to accomplish important goals. Once you're done with a task, you're done with it. You don't like revisiting or rehashing issues you think are settled. You're inventive and encourage people around you to be new and different instead of copying from the past.

Post the names of all the files in your WIP folder, regardless of how non-descriptive or ridiculous.

remix.wps <=Currently a blank document, but I think there may be an idea in my head somewhere now. Yay I guess.
wings of stars.wps
wip.wps and wip2.wps <=My scrap files. Currently still containing fic that's been done.

Now perhaps I can get some work done on these, maybe? Would help to have a document open, wouldn't it?

Because why come up with original content when you can do time wasters like this.

Go to your calendar and find the first entry for each month of 2010. Post the first 1-2 lines of it in your journal, and that's your "Year In Review".

And this year I have twelve of them! )

14. Favourite quote?

So many good lines to choose from. Today's one is from the season 9 opener, so spoilers. )

15. Tom, Adam, Lucas: who would win in a fight?

Three way tie in a manpain off. Oh, you mean fisticuffs? In a straight fight I'd say Lucas, those years in a Russian prison would have either toughened him up or killed him.

16. Favourite actress?

Nicola Walker. But there are also many other awesome actresses who have gone through Spooks' doors that if it weren't for my blinkers when it comes NW I would have had a real problem picking just one.

17. Least favourite episode?

Rock star episode. The horror. That was just...embarrassing.

18. Most interesting plot?

Connie being evil was good and awful (oooo no Connie don't be bad, you're awesome!) and they probably could have gone into that in more depth, even though I don't think my nerves could have taken it.

Day 13. Favourite couple?

Do I have to say anything?

11. Favourite male character?

Harry! At first he was just the boss, with the focus mainly on the pretty, angsty young things, but over 9 years and Peter Firth's wonderful performance he's become the back bone of the show. And that's not just because he's the only one who's been there from the very start.

Though I do also have a soft spot for Tom. He was the original pretty emo spy.

12. Least favourite male character?

Here I was stuck, as while Adam could get on my nerves I wouldn't say I hated him. Then I remembered Andy Serkis from that rock star episode. Poor Gollum, but by god that character was annoying.

9. Favourite baddie?

Connie. Even though she did redeem herself taking a bomb to the face, that initial betrayal was quite the kick in the arse. And going for so long with out getting detected, she's probably one of the more competent of villains.

And Mace was quite the glorious bastard.

10. Least favourite baddie?

Not!Christine, easy. Though I wasn't pleased with how Juliet went from Government body antagonist to eeeeevil. And the whole of Russia gets boring after a while.

New Apprentice, and it's the adult version so that means no Alan Sugar being nice because he might make the teenagers cry. Though since it's the beginning all the candidates are an indistinguishable mass of smug and sound bites.

But seriously, a sales technique consisting of a strange man going door to door asking if people wanted to buy his sausages? I'm surprised none of them got arrested.

And continuing with month of Spooks Day 8. Worst exit?

Zoe's was a bit of a muddle, but it's got to be Zaf. Captured at the beginning of series 7, what happened to him? Would it be that over the course of the series they eventually find out what happened and track him down, perhaps mount an epic rescue? No, we got to watch Adam have epic manpain and tuns out Zaf was just tortured and killed. Poor Zaf! Fucking writers!

Season finale, sob. But next season set up, yay! And surprise Moist!

Month of Spooks Day 7: Best exit?

Spooks certainly has gone through characters, so that means lots of dramatic exits. It's tough to narrow it down to just one. There are tragic ones (Danny! Colin!), emotional ones (Ruth! Even though she came back). The "contract negotiations go south" ones (Ros, sob!) Hmm, I'm going to go with Helen. That was one memorable exit. Meanwhile the newbies are saying who's that? I have three words for you: deep fat fryer. Of DOOM!

It's hard to get across just how shocking that one really was. Even the event itself isn't all that graphic compared to the in your face gore you get nowadays. Which of course makes it worse as it gives the imagination just enough to go on. But there was the crafty promotional material that put her as one of the main characters, and the actress was the best known out of the youngsters. Plus, British dramas just didn't do that, where storylines are spoilered in the tabloids constantly. Spooks managed to slip under the radar because it was new and no one really cared just yet. Now they had to deal with bloody spoilers just like the soaps do.

Series 9 Ep 3 )

And it's meme days 4,5 and 6!

4. Favourite female character?

RUTH! Oh how I love Ruth. I've had the biggest crush on Nicola Walker since The Last Train and Chalk (I know, shut up), so Ruth had me the moment she dropped her files. Then she battled a lamp!

Her development from enthusiastic and naive GCHQ plant to ruling the Grid to out in the field to the more world-weary, pragmatic woman she is now, she (and Harry) have added some good old fashioned spy intrigue and depth amongst all the snazzy camera work and face paced action. Plush, she's a cat person!

But I also have to mention Ros. When she first showed up I HATED her, and her involvement in Ruth leaving, even though that was down to behind the scenes pregnancy, did not endear her to me. But when I came back to Spooks in series 8 she won me over. Her leadership was a nice change of pace from the chronic manpain of Adam and Tom; she was cold, ruthless and brilliant, and the writers wisely didn't try and soften her with crying or irritating relationships (hello Tom, Adam and Lucas!), instead letting Hermione Norris bring the depth to her in her performance.

5. Least favourite female character?

Oh, that's got to be Not!Christine. So least that I can't even remember her name. Even if she did become slightly more interesting as the series went on, her American accent travelling across the states in a single scene was still irritating as hell. And you know it's a bad accent if I notice it!

6. Favourite location?


Go Thames House that is not really Thames House! The Masons certainly have impressive architecture. And when I spot similar buildings here I can pretend that MI5 agents are inside, saving the UK and having angst and being all secretive. Instead of just, you know, Masons.

Since Brewfest hates me, I have been turning to fishing on the small chance that I may fish up the Sea Turtle. And look!


At least the Sea Turtles love me. Stupid Kodo!

And that also means...


So now I have to find some other things to do to waste time before the Cataclysm hits.

Memeness. 3. Favourite guest star?

Hmm, Spooks certainly has had it's share of awesome guest actors. On the serious side, got to go with Alexander Siddig. I only ever knew him as the irritatingly adorable Bashir from Star Trek, and here he was as this scruffy, ambiguous Algerian agent, managing to keep the uncertainty about his allegiance without having to resort being dishonest in his performance. And then all becomes perfectly clear with that tragic ending and moment of bravery. Such a shame he was only a one episode character.

But I also have to give special mention to Hugh Laurie chewing the Grid as Harry's MI6 counterpart Jools Siviter. From his careless snarking at Tom to keeping top secret documents in his trousers, practically every line of his is a classic. It's a pity that Hugh Laurie's American success meant that we never got to see any more of him.
