I've been feeling distinctly not-fannish lately, leading to (or perhaps because) I've been unable to string four sentences of fic together since Porn Battle closed. :(

Let's see, writing projects I have done NOTHING on:
1. spn_j2_bigbang. Squat.
2. chaos_thon. Outline. whoopie.
3. Black Sails. Outline. Random snippets that suck.
4. help_haiti AFT. I have a script.

You'll notice that's all pretty much exactly where I was last week.

So, instead, I've also watched five eps of .

I did like the pilot, but then it fell to the wayside because I have to dvr all the shows at 8 pm. But after reading the recaps at TWOP (because I LOVE Cindy, over there. Her taste and mine seem very simpatico and she grew to love it), I decided to catch up. AND ME TOO. It's not so SRS BZNS but it's well done and it has mythology, which I think we all know I need to really be fannish about something. (because as much as I enjoy shows like Burn NOtice and Leverage I have no desire to fic for them at all and I don't think about them when they're over).

The thing I love about it most, I think, is that IT MOVES. Things that other shows would use as mid-season cliffhangers (like Elena finding out Stefan's a vampire), happen early. She dumps his ass while she thinks about it. And I love Elena. And Stefan. (And KELLY HU was on last night!)

But how anybody can seriously ship Elena with Damon is ... beyond me. Seriously. He's a psycho. A funny and hot psycho, and I enjoy his character, but c'mon, she'd need a lobotomy. And if the show goes there without some MAJOR character rehab, I'm done.

I'm going to try to do the writing block for chaos_thon tonight and see if I can write SOMETHING useful!

I'm worried because I have fannish energy, just not for the challenges. I'm afraid I'm turning into a procrastinator...

Just keep going with TVD. I was 'meh' for the first few episodes, then vaguely intrigued when it started growing a little baby-sized arc. Now I am OBSESSED like an OBSESSED THING with it. It just gets more and more fascinating - the characters more and more rounded and multi-layered and the arc more complex and fun. It is now my only appointment tv in the week.

I'm liking it more and more! It really does build on itself amazingly.
