I’m in the process of trying to kickstart my non-existent muse for writing.  So, I’m going to see how requesting prompts goes.  I've cross-posted this to my Tumblr as well.  I'll take answers either place and be cross-posting the responses.

Feel free to prompt me for any character and heck, any pairing.  I won’t make any promises, but I’m hoping that something smacks me in the forehead.

Fandoms I’m comfortable with…

Suits (like there was a doubt)

Hawaii Five-0 (know that I’m a few eps behind, but I can still attempt a ficlet)

NCIS (again, behind on eps)

Comics -

For DC, really the Bat-clan (other than Bruce), Superboy and Supergirl.  What can I say, I dig the sidekicks.

For Marvel, I’m a lot more open when it comes to the old old old school stuff.  (Seriously old).  I can do some movie-verse stuff as well, but my heart lies with the comics.  Chris Claremont X-Men were my first fannish love.

ElfQuest. If anyone even knows this series I will hug the stuffing out of you and want to bend your ear endlessly.

If there’s anything else you’ve seen me blog about, give it a shot.

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.



MEEEE

So I'm on the tail end of 4 days of flu (the head, cough and achy kind).  Have felt like complete and utter CRAP the whole time.  Finally better today.  Which is a very good thing because I had plans to go see "Hunger Games" with my boss and friends and I was the one who bought the tickets online.

I really liked the movie.  The places where it suffered slightly were really due to having to cram that much story into just under 3 hours.  I was impressed with how they handled a lot of the background narrative without having to do an exposition dump.  Won't say anything beyond that...oh and my one friend with us who hadn't read the books said that she is now emotionally scarred for life.  We were quite proud of ourselves. 

For the rest of my weekend, I'm getting my hair done tomorrow and on Sunday I'm taking a mini-Photography class to learn how to play with my brand new camera. :D  Oh, did I mention that on Monday (right before the plague from hell hit) I bought a new Canon EOS T3?  The local camera store was having a "no sales tax" sale and there was a rebate on the camera with the kit lens and another rebate on a zoom lens.  So, I now have new shiny! 

Since I paid for my flight to Toronto in May at the same time, I'm now on a spending restriction.  Though I did remember that I should be receiving my federal tax refund in a week or so, and that should cover the camera and most of the airfare as well (and wasn't already counted toward anything else).  YAY.

Speaking of Toronto, the Suits cast are all heading back to start filming next week!  They're already starting to toll each other on Twitter.  Should be fun!  Can't wait for the pictures to start showing up.

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!!!

Doing another countdown to squee.  Not because things are bad, jut because there should always be squee. :) (Although I do have the hiccups at the moment and that could use some Squee.


1) Suits started re-airing Season 1 last night so for the first time I have Harvey and Mike on my TV screen and not just my computer.  It also means that tonight they're showing "Errors and Omissions" which has adorable Stoned Puppy!Mike and "Good Boy".  :)

2) In one week I will be at the movie theater watching "Hunger Games".  My boss and I are ditching work early with a couple of friends to go see it.  We're all fans of the book and SO excited!!!

3) In two weeks I'll be in Seattle for Emerald City Comic Con.  I'm excited about hanging with friends and I'm excited because I finally get a chance to get a commission from Marcus To who is one of my favorite comic artists.  I'm still having trouble deciding what to ask for.  I'd kind of like one from him and one from Dustin Nguyen (another favorite) but I have they feeling they're both going to book up pretty fast.  I'm kind of thinking a Steph!Batgirl from one and a Kara!Supergirl from the other.

4) The day after I get back, the 1940 US Census is released to the public.  I know there's a look of puzzlement on many folks faces, but this is HUGE for a genealogy geek.  It has the potential to help fill in several gaps in my family tree.  (My understanding is that it takes approx. 72 years to release the census because, in theory, by that time any of the personally identifiable data will become obsolete.)

5) May 1 Suits Season 1 DVDs will be released. My joy for this knows no bounds.

6) May 4 AVENGERS!!!  I was originally planning to go to Vancouver for the release, but with all the other travel plans coming up, I'm not sure that's going to happen.  Hopefully I can find some L.A. fangirls to geek with!

7) Tentatively, May 29 through June 7th is Toronto!!  I'm still not 100% sure on the dates or the length of stay, but that's looking the most likely.  My birthday is tucked in there somewhere too. :)

8) June 14, SUITS SEASON 2!!!!!!!

9) August (can't remember exact dates) looks like I'll be doing a few days in Catalina with my mom.  Haven't been to Catalina in years and am looking forward to it.

10) ??????

Squee!

Many reasons to squee today.

1) A start date has been announced for Suits. June 14! They should start filming in a couple weeks. Eee!

2) And much more squeeful, I got home from work yesterday and my commission from [livejournal.com profile] silvertales was waiting! She also did an awesome headshot of Steph!Batgirl but my scanner was being a pain.

So I give you Bendy!Nightwing:

So pretty.

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 was on a meeting for work and someone randomly busted out a ST:TNG reference. The only ones on the call to pick up on it were the women. This just made me so gleefully and geekfully happy. :D

GAH! My fingernails will be bitten to the quick by the end of this. (Click the pic to join the madness!)

Go watch "8".  It's the play by Dustin Lance Black about Prop 8 with a TON of stars in it. (George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Jane Lynch, Chris Colfer, Matt Bomer, Martin Sheen, Jamie Lee Curtis, Christine Lahti and lots of others.)

It's livestreaming right now.

Upcoming happy things...

I've pre-ordered my Season 1 "Suits" DVD and it will arrive May 1st. YAY.  Really can't wait for the commentary and Gag Reel on this. :D

Next week [livejournal.com profile] starshines will be hanging out for a couple of days and we'll be going to the Paley panel for Castle.  Yay visits and Yay Nathan Fillion!

In a couple more weeks I'll be hanging out in Seattle!  YAY!

Sometime in April and/or May I'll be doing multiple Disneyland trips. :)

It's looking like from May 29th through June 7th (dates are still approximate) I'll be in Toronto!!

There's also a chance of Hawaii happening sometime this year too!

YAY. *kermitarms!*

Ugh.

The combination of watching the season finale of White Collar, re-watching The Reichenbach Fall, reading angsty Suits fic and getting literally zero sleep last night  is not helping my emotional well-being today.

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



Photobucket

Louis totally won this one.

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

I'm finally starting Sherlock.  It's a light meeting day today at work so I'm starting to watch the series while I start a new knitting project.  (I should really finish a couple of the older ones too.)
webbgirl: (Suits_Harvey)
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.

I was supposed to go out with [personal profile] leupagus and other fangirls tonight for booze and squee but I have a sudden case of the creeping crud right now.  Woke up sneezing and coughing this morning and now it's progressed into generally feeling like crap.  I just want to curl up in a blanket and OD on NyQuil.  I'm pondering finally watching "Sherlock" but I'm not sure if I'll be able to stay coherent enough to really pay attention.  Perhaps tomorrow.

I'd picked up fixings to make chili in the slow cooker, but I'm kind of wishing now I'd gotten stuff for soup.  Oh well, the chili should clear my sinuses out.

___________

In happier news, I'm seriously considering taking a trip to Toronto at the end of May/early June.  It's Memorial Day and my birthday.  I keep saying that I should see other parts of Canada and I'm told Toronto is lovely and um...there may be a certain show filming around that time. *cough*

So if anyone on my flist has tips/warnings/things in general about Toronto they'd like to share with me, I'll take it.  If I do end up going it'd be for at least a week.  Suggestions on areas to stay in and areas to avoid staying in would also be most welcome.

Last night there was an event at the Pacific Design Center here in L.A. sponsored by The Moth and USA Network called A More Perfect Union: Stories of Prejudice and Power.  Basically it's creating forums (it's a traveling thing) for students to learn how to become storytellers and share their stories.  It's kind of an amazing thing when you think about it. Sort of the ground floor of encouraging individuals to use their voices for progress and good.

Anyway, last night's event was a kick off thing with many of the actors from the various USA shows attending.  Thought I'd share some of the photos here.  For the rest you can go to my Photobucket and view. :D  They're not just the Suits folks (though I did spend more time staring at Gabriel Macht).  I will say that I now question Tim Omundson's ability to make good facial hair choices on his own.  And for those wondering, I know that Patrick J. Adams has said on his Twitter that he's currently battling with the flu, so I'm assuming that would be why he wasn't there with his cast mates.

There are going to be quite a few. )
I'm going to be loading more pics to the album, but if anyone knows where to get some HQ versions SHARE!!!!

So the Region 1 DVDs are due to be released May 1. Yay, but I don't know how I'll wait that long.

The extras include a Gag Reel, a Q&A with questions from the fans, deleted scenes and commentaries on the Pilot and Dogfight.

Really looking forward to the Gag Reel and Commentaries.
