USA Upfronts

I know that a lot of folks on here don't necessarily use Tumblr, but there are a lot of great pics and videos from the USA Upfronts in New York yesterday.  (For those not familiar with them, the Upfronts are when the networks show off their current shows as well as their new ones to the media.)

Anyway, the pics and videos are from a bunch of different sources (including folks personal stuff) so I thought I'd at least share the link to the Suits tag on my Tumblr for those who'd like a peek. :)  I would post some of the pics here, but there are so many from various sources I figured it'd be easier this way.  Hope nobody minds.

Still alive. Still coughing...

So the cough from my flu is ever lingering at this point.  It's much better, and I'm functional but it is more than a bit annoying at this point.

In happier news though, I had a great time this weekend in Seattle.  ECCC is such a low pressure con so you can really do as much or as little as you'd like.  I got my main goal of getting a commission done by Marcus To.  I ended up being second in his line.  His flight in got delayed in Chicago so he was late getting to the con.  A couple of us stood for quite awhile waiting for him to show, but it was definitely worth it.  I'll be scanning the sketch along with some prints I bought from him and Dustin Nguyen (the artist) in the next day or so to share. :)

Also had a great time hanging out with [personal profile] crimsonquills and [livejournal.com profile] tartary_lamb .  We also gorged ourselves on Irish food and drink (I introduced them to Car Bombs) and spent time watching Suits and direct-to-DVD action movies all for the sake of Gabriel Macht.  NO REGRETS!  We also went to the Wil Wheaton panel and he was awesome as always.

In Suits-related stuff, I just ordered tickets for June for the Paley Center screening of the Season 2 premiere!   EEE!  No word yet on any of the cast or production folks who would be there, but I'm excited either way.  It's scheduled for the 11th, right after I get back from Toronto. YAY EXCITED!!  As of right now I have two extra tickets if anyone is interested.  I can also order more if more folks want to go.

!!!

So I just figured out why Donna Paulson from Suits is so AWESOME!!  She's really a temp from Chiswick named Donna who regenerated. :)

And I now sort of want a Doctor Who/Suits fusion where Harvey is a Time Lord, Mike is a Companion and Donna is well...Donna!!!

After rambling discussion on Twitter with Dietpunkfics

I now have a het pairing with Gibbs that I really want to see.  Donna Paulson from Suits.  She'd be perfect.  She's sarcastic and badass enough to completely handle him.

Also?  Hi!  Happy Sunday.  After a couple of days of being in a really bad place, and then a couple of days of fun with [personal profile] starshines visiting I'm in a decidedly good mood today.  Mostly because I've decided that I'm going to be in a good mood.

I always start thinking about who is the Gretchen Wieners in my current fandom.

Louis totally won this one.

I may be in the process of making some gifs for Suits with Mean Girls quotes. *facepalm*

Suits vs NCIS

I may be committing sacrilege here, but I think I may actually like Harvey Specter more than Gibbs.  I know.  Crazy, right?

Watching Suits has reminded me of many of the reasons why NCIS has lost its shine in many ways for me.

I had a whole long ramble about this, but my brain for writing coherently has seemingly abandoned me.  I think the crux of it is, Suits has all these moments where we see Harvey acknowledge in fairly tangible ways that he really admires Mike and wants him there (even when he's being a bit of a douche).  We also see moments where Mike stands up to Harvey and stands up for Harvey.

Unfortunately in NCIS, those moments became unicorn moments for so many seasons they were so few and far between.  One of the things I could never understand is why the Tony in early Season 4 would ever stay at NCIS.  His co-workers didn't respect him and he didn't seem to respect himself either.  With Mike, I can see why he's so loyal to Harvey.  Harvey has earned it in so many ways.

I don't know that I'm sad that I've moved on from NCIS, but it does help me figure out why Suits clicks so well for me.

Profile for Harvey Specter

So I'd been looking around the net to see if anyone had done a character bio for Harvey for reference. I haven't been able to find one, so with some encouragement I've decided to start to put one together. I'd love any feedback, additional facts, places where folks think I've gotten things wrong.

I'm including canon facts (with the episodes) and then a section on my own fanon stuff. :)

Character: Harvey Specter
Age: No canon citation yet. We know he's 10 years older than Mike (Errors and Omissions). Based on this and his time working it would ballpark him between 35 and 38.
Family: Has/had at least one brother. (Tricks of the Trade)
Background:

Was a baseball pitcher in high school. Missed the state championships due to bad shoulder. (Undefeated)
Started in mail room at Pearson Hardman. (Pilot)
Worked at Pearson Hardman for uknown time. (Pilot)
Attended Harvard (Jessica paid). (Pilot)
Graduated 5th (Play the Man)
Worked as NY County ADA 2 years (Rules of the Game)
Handled 36 cases/day during this time.
Won all 147 that went to trial


Relationships:

Cameron Dennis - NY County DA. Was Harvey's mentor while Harvey worked in his office. He falsified and/or hid evidence in order to win cases. Harvey left the DA's office when he found out. No longer on good terms, but Harvey was reluctant to betray him.(Dog Fight.)

Donna - Has known Harvey for at least 12 years. (DA's office and Pearson Hardman combined) Is completely loyal to Harvey, but also willing to give him shit when necessary. Possibly knows Harvey better than anyone we've met. She took evidence against Cameron Dennis when she left the DA's office in order to protect Harvey.

Jessica - When she met Harvey he was a "screw up". She got him a job in the mail room, led him up the ranks and paid for him to go to Harvard. She respects Harvey's abilities, but would clearly like to see him be less of a loose cannon. While she is also a mentor to Harvey, there are aspects of their personal lives that they don't share with each other.

Mike - Mike respects and is clearly in awe of Harvey, but he's not afraid to stand up to him. Mike also gets to witness Harvey's "emotions" more than most. Even though Harvey denies having them. Harvey mentors Mike though he claims to be reluctant to do so. He want to make sure Mike "gets it".

Personality/Quirks/Traits: (I'll be adding some quotes and stuff in here as examples)

Arrogant
Confident
Loves jazz and blues
Hates skinny ties
Wears tailored suits
Claims he is against having emotions but all for using them
Extremely loyal to those he feels deserve it. Expects the same in return.
Smart and clever at legal skills. Has a bit of tough guy in him.
Can quote movies and TV. A Trek fan.
Jerked off entire time at Harvard.
Doesn't date married women.

So personal fanon stuff...

Harvey had at least one addict in his life. Either an alcoholic or a drug addict. This comes from his strong reactions and speeches to Mike about Trevor and addiction. I think he was hurt by the addict (possibly his brother) and that's why he wants Mike to completely break off with Trevor. Doesn't want him dragged down that road.

He grew up with little money. He's got a lot of street in him. I think he was responsible for his brother from a young age. Possible absentee parents.

He doesn't like the idea of being a mentor. I think this comes more from how badly Cameron let him down in that role than it does with him not wanting to show someone the ropes.

My deep thoughts for the morning...

I'm watching the "Bad Wolf" episode of Doctor Who and wondering who would win in a "I make this look good" smug off...Captain Jack or Harvey Specter?

It's also possible Harvey Specter has taken over my brain.  Okay, more than possible.

Dooomed

So it's fairly common in comics fandom to discuss which actors would be cast for various characters.  Since Nightwing/Dick Grayson is one of my favorite characters, I'm often trying to figure out who would play him.  Matt Bomer is one of the more popular selections for him.  I've always been kind of neutral on this, but tonight it all slotted into place!!

Matt Bomer is Nightwing/Dick
Gabriel Macht is Batman/Bruce Wayne
Patrick J Adams is Robin/Tim Drake

I keep trying to mentally work in Tim DeKay too.  Commissioner Gordon doesn't quite work for me though.

THIS SO WORKS!!  I now want this so bad.  In lieu of this I'd take a Suits/White Collar/Batman fusion fic.

Fannish blah blah blah

So I'm really enjoying re-watching "Suits" with the folks in the UK (I may also be re-watchign eps on my own as well).  I'm noticing little things I missed the first time.  Not surprising since [personal profile] crimsonquills [livejournal.com profile] tartary_lamb [personal profile] barometry and I did the whole season in almost one big gulp.  We watched the first 7 or so eps on New Years Eve.  Every time an episode would end, we'd all look around at each other to see if we should keep going. The answer kept being "Yes" until around 3 am.  We finished off the rest of the episodes once we were all up and mostly awake on New Years Day.  This, my friends, is the awesomeness of fandom.

Anyway, now that I'm re-watching and reading some fic, I actually had a dream with Harvey in it the other night.  I rarely dream about fannish stuff, so it was a lovely surprise. :D

Also in fannish stuff, I LOVED this week's "White Collar".  No spoilers from me, but it was fun and funny!  Afterwards I ended up reading a Harvey Specter/Neal Caffrey fic and GUH!! There need to be more cross-over fics with these shows!!!  Though I can see Harvey thinking that Neal might be a bad influence on Mike. :)

I keep thinking I need to go and hunt down new fannish icons for Suits and Downton Abbey, but I kind of want to make some myself first.  That may end up being my weekend project. 

H50 casting/character news that I will put behind a cut Spoilerphobes beware. )
