1) I finished my bigbangbigbang at just over 15K. It has the appropriately cheesy title of "StarTricked" to go with its cheesiness. :) I still have to finish revising it, but I will soon be paired with an artist/fanmixer and that is exciting!
2) Community got passed over for the Emmys (a crime!) but the Thursday marathon was amazing and the fandom is terrific. It looks like the comm may snag Gillian Jacobs for an interview soon, too!
3) SUMMER TV MARATHON STATUS:
Finished since the last update:
**New Doctor Who - I really, really enjoyed Series Five. I really, really like all three members of Team Tardis (Eleven, Amy, Rory), and that's new for me. For example:
- Ten=Rose, but I wasn't madly in love
- Donna>Ten, but their BFFery elevated Ten GREATLY
- Eleven is LOVE. Amazing. Amy is perfect. Rory is a teddy bear. AND THEY GET TO GO ON MORE ADVENTURES TOGETHER, THIS IS SO EXCITING. NO CHANGE UP BETWEEN SERIES!
**Spaced - finished - Series 2 was so great. How sad it only lasted 2 series?
**Drop Dead Diva - finished/caught up for Sunday. LOVE IT. This is why it's great:
- Brooke Elliott, who plays Jane, is amazing at playing a thin, shallow model trapped inside a brilliant plus-sized lawyer. She's bubbly, fiesty, caring.
- I tear up practically every episode. Sure, it's on Lifetime. That's their brand, right? But even T. was getting sucked in when I was watching.
- Jane is inspiring. I love how she shines despite the opinions of everyone around her.
- The First Series is just okay. I had trouble finishing it.
- But I pressed on to Series 2, and nearly watched all six in one sitting.
- Just a few more S2, then on to S3.
About to Start:
**The IT Crowd
