So...One of the things I've been thinking about of late is how much of the squee of fandom has gone away for me.  It's not in any one particular fandom, but kind of overall.  I know a lot of this is because I allow myself to get dragged into negative discussions and situations.  I have no desire to change or judge anyone else's fandom experience, but I do have some level of control over my own fannish space and contributions.

With that said, my intention is to make this journal a more friendly and "safe" space when it comes to fandom.  What this means exactly...
  • I'll be doing regular Squee/Fluff posts where folks are welcome to come and gush over their fandom(s) of choice.
  • I'll be doing regular memes that encourage fannish squee.
  • I'll put any non-Squee fandom posts behind a cut.  This is more to make me really think about what I'm posting rather than add to the negativity.  (Again, this isn't any form of judgement of others, just looking to shape my own environment.)
  • I'll be cheerleading fannish works as much as possible.  I'm happy to help pimp anything and to wave pom-poms for anyone looking for encouragement.
If any of this sounds annoying or just not your cup of tea, that's fine.  I would ask that you respect the space though and keep any negativity elsewhere when it comes to the squee/fluff posts. I always have open amnesty for anyone who would like to unfriend me.  No hard feelings (unless you're... well you know who you are). :)  On that note, I'll also be going through and cleaning out a bit of my flist over the next couple of weeks.  Mostly communities, but possibly a few folks as well.  I get that interests change, folks move on.  No ill will intended. :)

So while I was in Vancouver I was forced facilitated into the viewing of "Suits".  I knew that chunks of my flist had gone happy for the show, but I'd put off watching it.  Mostly because I didn't want to get sucked into another fandom at the time.  I was quite happy with Hawaii Five-0 and tend to stick to one fandom at a time.

Anyway, after an all night marathon with friends I was completely sold.  I've been enjoying several other of USA's shows for the same reasons I enjoyed Suits.  The characters (both male and female) are smart and well developed.  Even the "bad guys" tend to be more than one-dimensional.

Not going to lie, the blatant slash between Harvey and Mike doesn't hurt but my enjoyment of the show is so much more than that.  It makes me laugh and even pulls at the heart from time to time.

Because "Suits" went over so well, I decided to give "White Collar" a try.  I'm half-way through first season (unfortunately I have to fit work in with the viewing this time) and I'm loving it for all the same reasons.  It's smart, I like both Peter and Neil (and I LOVE ELLE), it's made me laugh out loud several times.  The one downside is I can't bring myself to fully slash Peter and Neil unless it's an OT3 with Elle.  Did I mention my love for her?

So...anyone want to share their squee on "Suits", "White Collar" or other USA shows?  Any good fics or vids you'd like to rec?

Please note possible spoilers in the comments!
