ivydoor: (Heroes - Peace out)
I love my new icon. *pats it* ... *snogs Hiro* Okay, I'm good. *g*

So. Apparently it's that time of the month again and fandom has her frilly knickers in a twist. Never in my life have I seen a fandom meta more about their fellow fans than they do the subject of the fandom.

When you call someone "batshit" and then blast them for feeling threatened, or complain that a certain ship is the majority and you're sick of seeing it and "why can't they move on already?", then bitch when the majority takes their ball home by locking their posts, you'll have to forgive me when I say you're being a tad hypocritical.

You can't have it both ways. You can either A) Play nicely and stay out of their sandbox OR B) Accept that they've locked you out of the playground and you'll need to find some other kids to steal squee lunch money from. Simple as that. Shippers are not your personal emotional punching bags and they don't have to stand there and keep taking hits if they don't want to. They have every right to lock their posts and keep you out. They have every right to start their own community newsletter based on their ship when they get tired of clicking harmless looking links that turn into shipper bashing threads that would make Simon Cowell blush.

I do lock my fandom thoughts, not because I'm close minded or hate conflict (even though I do hate it) but for the comfort of everyone I know. That and I have better things to do than deal with those who would rather pick a fight than move on. Moving on? Why does that sound familiar?

This isn't a long and insightful meta. I'm pretty much leaving it here as I don't really feel I can say anything I haven't said before or that hasn't been said by folks much more eloquent than myself.

Play nice, stay out of my sandbox and I'll stay out of yours. Sound fair?

Okay, with all the wank over Martha and the anxiety about tomorrow's episode, I thought it would be a good idea for us D/R guys and gals to take some time to look at some pretty pictures and remember our Rose!zen.

This post is not locked. Don't like Rose? Move along, nothing to see here. If it becomes a problem, I will delete bashing posts and flock this to the deep dark recesses of the prairie dog network. Capisce?

Lots of pretties... )

Want the pretties without all my blabbering? Help yourself. :)

I think it's pretty well established that I'm a pervy fangirl when it comes to David Tennant. Well, I thought there was too much pretty in this weeks Confidential to let it go to waste, so here are a few caps for us to drool over view.

ivydoor: (squee)
[livejournal.com profile] misssara11 posted a slew of links to chibiDoctor pictures by [livejournal.com profile] jesidres. Being the sucker that I am, I couldn't stop squeeing over them. Make one off-hand comment about David Tennant and a pile of bunnies and kitties, and before you know it, you've inspired images that can bring about world peace.

David Tennant single-handedly causes world peace.

Interview with Masi Oka from Heroes

He's so cute. I heart him. Hee!
ivydoor: (memories)
It seems the lists are alight with reviews of the first episode, so I figure what the hell. Why shouldn't I post what I think?

This is gonna get spoilerific in a specifically general way. Anyone who has read my previous fangirling will know what that means...

Just to be safe, if you don't want to know: No Clicky! )

Okay so my...er...fascination with the ever adorkable David Tennant tends to take precedence on here but it does not outshine my rather unhealthy view of one Johnny Depp. I've had a crush on him since he was on 21 Jump Street. Well, I just got wind of the new PotC trailer. Holeeeey....

I, for one, can not wait for this. I am so going to see this as soon as it comes out. And it's coming out on our anniversary weekend to boot so I have that going for me. I can guilt the MIL into watching the kids long enough for that. I have to start the lobbying now, but 2 months should be sufficient time.

Keep tellin' yourself that darling.
ivydoor: (swear)
Okay. Rome. Wow. Well, so much for historical accuracy but damn it's good watchin'. I don't know where to start.

Okay, to prove I'm not all doom-n-gloom, I'm going to recreate a "conversation" I had with my friend via email and phone last night. It revolves around a long standing argument we've been having. Keep in mind this is all in good fun and something we do regularly to blow off steam.
