"All Quidditch matches begin with the traditional Mary Poppins sacrifice."  
Okay, I totally need to see Sherlock Holmes like, yesterday already. I'm reading different people's reviews and reactions to it and, while I knew I was going to see it before, I'd most definitely going to be seeing it based off the positive things others are saying.

Things have been quiet lately. Christmas kinda burnt me out, all I wanna do is lounge and not do anything. Heh.

So I've been kinda occupied with going through older entries of F_W, because that place is fun to look for wank of anything anywhere in fandom and the snark is hilarious. I stopped and check out the Battlestar Galactica section where, of course, when it first premiered way back people were ranting calling it a horrible remake, upset and offended about Starbuck having a vagina, the fact that the Cylons weren't robots anymore, how Starbuck growing her hair long and being married makes her less badass than before, etc. I NEVER LOL'D SO HARD IN MY ENTIRE LIFE PPL! I mean I know it's old and people were being defensive because they either grew up with the old!BSG and stuff, but looking back on those wanks now? Hilarious shit. Sometimes wanks can be headache-inducing, but these just made me laugh. I'm kinda surprised there isn't much of the pairings involved that are mentioned, as I'm sure there have been (and probably still are) many shipping wars in the BSG fandom. Mainly the Sam/Kara vs Lee/Kara shippers which, in a sense, makes me think of the Sam/Dean vs Dean/Castiel flaming and making me go CAN'T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG? THREESOMES PPL, THREESOMES! THEY MAKE THE WORLD GO ROUND!

Really now fandom, threesomes are canon in the BSG universe. Lee/Kara/Sam could definitely have been a plausible notion and could have solved all the drama associated with the pairings. Well, add Baltar and Six and Leoben into the mix too, because then it would be a freaking par-tay! *wink*

I've also been watching Rifftrax online. Apparently I've been in the mood for good sarcastic snarkage lately. I never lol'd so hard, particularly when they are riffing at Harry Potter. SO. MUCH. QUOTABLE. SHIT. I nearly fell off my seat laughing (I AM YOUR NEW GAY DUMBLEDORE! XD). However, no matter how amazing and awesome the MST3K guys are with their mocking, they cannot reduce the horrible mess that is Twilight. Like, the mockery is hilarious as always, but the movie, well the story itself, is just so atrocious I was cringing because, seriously? People actually like this? Wow. Just, no. I actually feel sorry for Kristen Stewart and Rpattz, because they will forever be known being involved with this sorry excuse of a franchise.

So clearly, being entertained and amused by snark has been keeping me preoccupied during this hiatus and waiting for he new year. What's not to love about that? *g*

Lee/Kara/Sam would've been awesome. And you know Leoben would've been totally into joining the fun *giggle*

Ooh, I'd never seen any of the Harry Potter rifftrax--now I'm going to have to!

He totally would, too. Hell, a freaking orgy should happen because it would solve all the relationship problems and it would stop fandom from bitching about who belongs better with whom.

THEY ARE UTTERLY HILARIOUS! IT MAKES ME HAPPY BECAUSE I LOVE MST3K AND JUST HAVING RIFFS OF THESE MOVIES MAKE ME SQUEAL (even though I love them to bits, except for Twilight, that shit needs to burn to the ground and I am beyond delighted they riffed that, lol). ;D

I've gone back and looked at old wanks on F_W and got some good laughs and was kind of surprised by which fandoms were featured at times.

One of the biggest surprises I had was seeing the Avatar: The Last Airbender reports because I couldn't wrap my head around how there could be so much shipping wank over a cartoon targeted towards 8 to 13 year olds. That was before I watched it. There was so much ship teasing in the show. Most of which centered on who Katara (the main female character) should end up with: Aang (the title character) or Zuko (the residential emo!boy). It didn't help that Zuko had a way with the ladies that he usually wasn't aware of because he was too busy trying to ~*~regain his honor~*~.

It didn't help that the creators poked fun at some of the more batshit people in the fandom (the crazy ass Zuko/Katara shippers are comparable to the crazy ass Harry/Hermione shippers). You can look up some stuff they did at Comic Con for a few years on YouTube by typing "Avatar Comic Con shipping" to get a good idea. And then there was Ember Island Players, the episode before the GRAND FINALE that poked fun at the show itself and the fanbase.

how Starbuck growing her hair long and being married makes her less badass than before

I remember that one. Oh man! XD

I think a good portion of the BSG shipping wank was flocked, so F_W couldn't report them. Personally, I want to be in a threesome with Helo and Anders. Athena can join if she wants.

I can't help but feel sorry for Kristen and Robert. I hope Leonardo and Kate give them some pointers since they had to deal with a similar situation with Titanic.

I know. It's addictive because I keep following the tag links and memories and I'm following what I'd missed in fandoms I didn't realize had wank reports before. It's kinda awesome, and I'm laughing and facepalming at some of them, but mostly laughing. ;D

And then there was Ember Island Players, the episode before the GRAND FINALE that poked fun at the show itself and the fanbase.

That's kinda like SPN when they break that forth wall in the actual series (poking fun at the writing of the show along with the fanbase, including a crazy fangirl writing blatant Wincest shown directly on the show itself, lol forever!), it always brings the crazies in fandom to be, well, even more crazy by having sticks up their asses and failing to understand that the intention was to laugh at themselves.

I think a good portion of the BSG shipping wank was flocked, so F_W couldn't report them..

Ah, that's probably why. I know there had been some kind of drama over shipping (I never ventured that far into the BSG fandom, tbh, I usually ignored the pairing parts, but now I wished I could have enjoyed all the bitching that came along with it).

What I kinda hate though are those that diss Kristen or Robert because of these roles. People, the actors don't make the characters suck. Stephanie Meyer does that all on her own by WRITING THE BOOKS IN THE FIRST PLACE! Kristen and Rpattz are just unfortunate to be stuck in such a sucky movie franchise.

Threesomes on BSG works for both textually and subtextually, SPN not at all. I think the crazies will wank until the show ends because they are so obsessed with Sam/Dean or Jared/Jensen. I find it all amusing in a distant way.

I actually enjoyed New Moon, especially since I love werewolves but I agree that Twilight was painfully bad.
Renée: Castiel. Guardian angel.rogueslayer452 on December 29th, 2009 03:16 am (UTC)
I think the wanking will continue even after the show ends, because that's how the SPN fandom is. It is rather amusing though, even though the same drama from the same group of wankers keeps arising over and over ad nauseum.
imisspadfoot21imisspadfoot21 on December 29th, 2009 02:54 am (UTC)
LOL! Wank is great to waste away the time!

OMG SO AGREE THAT THREESOMES FIX EVERYTHING!! ;)
Renée: Dean/Castiel. Personal space.rogueslayer452 on December 29th, 2009 03:03 am (UTC)
It really is. It's like TVTropes, once you start you can't look away. ;D

THREESOMES (AND FOURSOMES AND FIVESOMES, JUST ORGIES IN GENERAL) SOLVE ALL SHIPPING PROBLEMS. THIS IS TRUFAX.
imisspadfoot21imisspadfoot21 on December 29th, 2009 03:13 am (UTC)
OMG YES! I spent a few hours yesterday wasting time on wank.

HEHE ORGIES ALL AROUND!! AND YES THEY TOTALLY SOLVE SHIPPING PROBLEMS...I don't get all the SPN wank drama over ships...I rather like Dean/Cas/Sam all together...more fun that way ;)
Renée: Dean/Castiel. BFFs.rogueslayer452 on December 29th, 2009 03:17 am (UTC)
OMG YES! THAT IS MY KIND OF LOGIC RIGHT THERE! DEAN/CASTIEL/SAM = EVERYONE WINS! :D :D :D
imisspadfoot21imisspadfoot21 on December 29th, 2009 03:39 am (UTC)
HEHE YEP ;) Tho honestly with the crazies in this fandom...there will no doubt be someone unhappy...complaining about who tops and who bottoms...

THERE NEEDS TO BE MORE DEAN/CAS/SAM THO!
Renée: Dean/Castiel. OTP.rogueslayer452 on December 29th, 2009 04:27 am (UTC)
This is true. With those people, there will always be something to bitch about.

YES THERE SHOULD! :D My main OTP is Dean/Castiel, but I don't object to the notion of Dean/Castiel/Sam. They are the ultimate OT3 BB! :D :D :D
imisspadfoot21imisspadfoot21 on December 29th, 2009 05:14 am (UTC)
Hehe! I love OT3s!! They're THE BEST! Hmm...idk if I have a OTP in SPN fandom...I love Dean/Cas and it does seem to be taking over my life but it's such a tragic romance! Eh, I don't think there is a slash pairing for SPN that isn't in some way angsty...might be why I love this fandom so much...aside from the crazies! Bitching only leads to more bitches in the world...
Renée: Dean/Castiel.rogueslayer452 on December 29th, 2009 05:32 am (UTC)
LOL, IT'S NOT A SUPERNATURAL PAIRING UNLESS IT'S ANGSTY! ;DDD

-waves from the Multi-shipping Ship- Lee/Kara/Anders/Leoben would be awesome. Or y'know, peace love hugs all around for everyone :D That works too. Like, really well.
Renée: BSG. ORGY TIME YAY!rogueslayer452 on December 29th, 2009 05:06 am (UTC)
Oh, definitely. Multishipping is the best, and I do have my OTPs and all but, sometimes, it's good to embrace the multi-pairings. SPREAD THE LOVE, NOT THE WANK (OR WANK, BUT IN THE ~*~GOOD-FEELING~*~ WAY ;D)
♛ part-time maenad: bsg; i know about farmingradon_ on December 29th, 2009 05:10 am (UTC)
EXACTLY. I seriously don't get ship wars, esp in the BSG fandom. -sighs, retreats to Baltar/Six corner of the fandom-
Renée: Six/Gaius. Passion.rogueslayer452 on December 29th, 2009 05:17 am (UTC)
It's the whole MY SHIP IS BETTER THAN YOUR SHIP mindset that I, honestly, don't understand at all. Can't we just be happy with our pairings and move on? Don't worry about what other people ship. I mean, mutishipping is like the greatest things because it's the FREE FOR ALL kinda deal. Everyone can be happy with whichever pairing with no fears (at least, I don't think? Most multishippers I've come across in fandom are like "not my thing, but whatever floats your boat..." and we're all good, I wish everyone was like this).

At the end of the day, it's just a ship after all. And yes! If you (general 'you') don't like it, just move along, not stop and stir up wank, or y'know just agree to disagree or something. There would be so much less drama that way. ):

mutishipping is like the greatest things because it's the FREE FOR ALL kinda deal.
WORD. Though now you made me hungry for a buffet lunch, hdu! xD
Renée: Six. Satisfied.rogueslayer452 on December 29th, 2009 05:31 am (UTC)
*nods* Exactly. But sometimes, people just love starting shit because that's what they do, and it's unfortunate to be stirring up all the drama for no reason. It makes us sane fans look bad. D: But also, glad to not be part of the shit-stirring masses, and to be safe in our little protective bubbles amongst other sane fans of fandom who don't get into that nonsense.

LOL SRY FOR MAKING YOU HUNGRY BB! XD

Hee! ;D

Oh, and I got your postcard the other day bb! Thank you for the kind message, you're too precious. ♥

I have not looked at F_W in the longest... and that's really too bad because it's hysterical.

I really don't get the point of shipper wars. Shippers like sex - hence all the fic with the nekkid. And more ships = more sex. Why limit yourself to one? It is really the simplest math. :(
Renée: Blair Waldorf.rogueslayer452 on December 29th, 2009 10:49 pm (UTC)
Their wank reports often times are lol-worthy, and it makes me laugh and headdesk at the amounts of stupid fandom brings.

Yep, my thoughts exactly. Though some just don't like simple, they like waving the Entitlement Bitch flag. Fandom would be much more tolerable if there weren't pointless shipping wars, and that way I wouldn't feel so ashamed to be part of certain ones.
