Fandom March Madness Making Me March to Madness  

Because 30 votes make me sad. You guys, the TODDLER from Modern Family, who's only said like three words (okay, one of 'em was fuck, but still), has 70 votes. She was played by an actual DOLL half the time in previous seasons. HOW IS THIS RIGHT?? *heaves a big sad sigh for the STATE OF HUMANITY*

and in the meantime Trucco continues to be adorkable on Twitter on his second day. I'm fairly sure he resisted so long because he knew it would out him as being so DAMN ENTERTAINING. I knew he'd be adorb with Sandra, and they are. But also JR Bourne called him his best friend and said MT gave him his bike for his B-day, and I about died from the strength of their BFF-ery.

Twitter: there to get you overinvested in the lives of strangers. So weird, when you think about it, and yet delightful.

- after reading some really irritating anti-Moffat/anti-Eleven ginormous rants over there, I kinda want Sherlock fandom to descend and kick everyone's ass.
- On a related note, why is it the people who most loudly complain of douchey characters are themselves such obvious douchey people? Sherlock's not the only one who's too arrogant for social skills... *eyeroll*
- In the TVD bracket, while I'm happy for Caroline and Elena, I'm sad for Stefan. WAYYYYYYYY down there in fifth, pulling a mere 5% of the vote. :( Poor Paul, he deserves a better written character and way more appreciation.
- Happy Endings was the hardest category for me to decide, and apparently I wasn't the only one since five of them are basically splitting the votes. That's a well-balanced show.
- If you claim "Fandom" Hates Sansa after this, I will side-eye you, just FYI.

Going back to Twitter. can't stop. won't stop.

But I HAD to vote for Helo! I tried to make myself switch my vote, just for you, but I COULDN'T DO IT! *sob*

I suppose *sniff* since it's Helo, it's... okay. *chokes back sob bravely*

*single tear flows forlornly down my cheek*

The Sansa thing kind of shocked me, actually. I mean, I adore her, but that's mostly from the later books, not from the first season of the show. And I've seen a lot of hate thrown in her direction before. It's seems weird to see her above Dany and Arya. Though I was even more surprised that Tyrion doesn't have more votes.

I'm afraid I couldn't vote for Sam, though. I had to show my girl Dee some love.

well, Dee deserves some love, too, this is true.

Heh, yes, I think the Tyrion slapping the hell out of Joffrey gif wasn't deployed nearly as well as it might have been, lol. He really should be doing better. And I'm sure some of the Sansa votes are from people who know nothing or see only the campaign but still, I think it's a good thing to know that just because some people are vocal in their dislike doesn't mean it's everybody, y'know?

WOW, I cannot spell today. I swear I didn't have a cocktail at lunch.

I am actually a bit shocked by that (it makes my heart glad. <3)

Thought I voted last night, I suppose I could go change it now.

he's only 8 votes ahead of Bill! THAT IS NOT A COMFORTABLE MARGIN.

(yes, I need these small victories. heh)

Or come east to personally apologize for all the distraction. That'd be acceptable.
lizardbethlizardbeth_j on March 7th, 2012 09:07 pm (UTC)

and yes, I too think I need a personal apology for being such a LIFE-RUINER
Galactic Cupcakelostinapapercup on March 7th, 2012 09:14 pm (UTC)

Ugh. I've given Twitter more traffic in the past two days than, like, ever. Time to break down and watch the feed instead of stubbornly refusing to and then running over to Twitter to peek anyway.

I've only watched episodes here and there from Battlestar Galactica - I'm woefully behind on most shows :(
However, Sam *is* gorgeous...so, from me a totally superficial vote
lizardbethlizardbeth_j on March 7th, 2012 11:57 pm (UTC)
Superficial votes are Totally okay! :D

Happy Endings was such a difficult choice, I love everyone! I wanted to vote for brad&jane but couldn't decide between the two of them so I picked Penny

omgggg Trucco... and he just tweeted that Nathan Fillion should be the president of Twitter lol
lizardbethlizardbeth_j on March 7th, 2012 10:49 pm (UTC)
I think that was my thought as well - love Brad and Jane, couldn't pick between them, so I picked Penny. Since Penny's in the lead, we may not have been the only ones either! lol

OMG I can barely tear myself from twitter. Can't wait to see what Fillion says in his FF. LOL

If anyone I know has seen this picture already it's you, but just in case you haven't!
lizardbethlizardbeth_j on March 9th, 2012 01:13 am (UTC)
ah, no, I saw the alert on it but I thought it was for the article again!

The person at mtrucco.tumblr is kind of pissing me off with their constant fanfusion promotion -- that is NOT the source of the photo, and it makes me not want to reblog it, And yet if I do it myself, I feel all passive aggressive. argh.

Galactic Cupcakelostinapapercup on March 9th, 2012 03:57 am (UTC)
Yeah, I saw that. The heavy promotion's a turn off, but it'd be okay so long as she credited the right source. I guess you could always reblog and add the correct info, assuming you know it?
