Oh man.

I am not sure...

But I think...

I think Supernatural can suck donkey bollocks for the rest of my life AS LONG AS I CAN HAVE SAM AND DEAN BELLOWING BON JOVI IN THE CAR.

*bliss*





EDIT: Taking out the LJ cut since it's finished airing. ^__^
ACK MON DIEU.


BEST. MOTIVATOR. EVER.

Oh we win. Weesta. HELLS yeah, we win.

*fans self*
*falls over*
I am a bad, bad girl for not doing this sooner -- a "Supernatural" story rec, for [livejournal.com profile] corvus_imbrifer, who is a bit LJ-new and not used to pimping himself (dirty!), I think. (I could be wrong.)

Dear Uncle Michael by [livejournal.com profile] corvus_imbrifer
PG, appx 3,000 words

Takes place a couple of weeks after "All Hell Breaks Loose, Part 2" and features a minor character (which I did not know; I thought it was original, it was that engrossing). And I'm most impressed most with how much different the voice of this story is from the author's own voice and style. He put some work into this. The subject matter might not be for everyone, and in the hands of a lesser writer it certainly would not have been for me -- but as it is, I found it pretty damn touching.

That's it, I don't want to say anymore; it's better to go in unspoiled. ^__^

(The story is actually a JPEG in the form of a Gmail message, so it may slow you up if your connection, like mine, is effing lousy.)

So yeah, go to it! Enjoy!



...Kudos to [livejournal.com profile] qzxy for (unwittingly) reminding me I should do this... *sheepish*

It's fun. It makes things really satisfying, that accidental stumble-upon. Possibly even more so than they'd be on their own.

So I'm in the bookshop looking for something to buy because I can't really leave a bookshop without buying something -- I mean really, the idea -- and I stumble upon this. It's a first novel, and I go through periodic bouts of buying first-novels in an odd, somewhat misplaced attempt at solidarity, and the cover is kinda fun, obviously NYC, which appeals to my, what is it, hometown loyalty? Snobbery? Whatever it is, I pick up the book: Nightlife, by Rob Thurman.

Aaand I'm hooked, from the third paragraph. Possibly I'm hooked on the similarity, possibly on the thing itself, but there I am. So much so, in fact, that I am fully prepared to type up an entire excerpt.

Here is an excerpt )
And here is a bit of the first chapter

You see (so far at least), this is what I've been wanting... everything I've been wanting... from Supernatural. So much so, in fact, that I'd think this guy was a bloody plagiarist if the publication date didn't more or less belie this. (If he is, he's a dammed fast typist, and his publishing house is well-nigh magically instantaneous.)

After the utterly abysmal** (in my own personal humble, doesn't-have-to-be-shared-by-anyone-but-me, although I'll go on at LENGTH if asked, opinion) last few episodes of Supernatural, I'm sucking this one up like candy.

So yeah, it's got me. Hopefully it will keep me. I'm fickle. ~__^

--------------------
**why yes, I do feel slightly bad saying all that after watching Sammy up and die (and so prettily! D:) last night. Doesn't make me any less disappointed in "Heart" or make me despise "Hollywood Babylon" (like bad sex, in a way: 'Well, I'm glad YOU had fun, honey, don't mind me, or if I get it/find it funny/care at all'), "Prison Blues" (which made no sense no matter how you slice it), and quite frankly most of "All Hell Breaks Loose Part 1" a single iota less. Acting great and top-notch as always, though. Script? Not so much. Bah. Bleah. Still reluctant to watch my tape of "...What Should Never Be..." There's a limit to how much disappointment I can take; I'm invested, dammit.

Nightlife


EDIT: Oh wow, sequel!! Moonshine
