And on this day...

Wrongs were finally... well, not completed righted, but acknowledged, as Tatiana Maslany, whose work on Orphan Black is nothing short of genius (I know that word is thrown around a lot, but it is so true in this case), is FINALLY nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress In A Drama Series.

It's too late for Anna Torv and John Noble's brilliant work in Fringe to be recognized with any awards or even nominations, and there's no doubt they paved the way.

However. Tatiana Maslany deserves this nomination, and I can't imagine any of the other nominees could possibly have worked harder than her, so she deserves to win. And how wonderful is it, that an actress on a sci-fi show might win this mainstream award?

Beautiful. Congratulations, Ms. Maslany.

Fic: [The Blacklist] In From The Cold

I guess I should at least link to this from AO3.

This is a part of the AU that namarie24 and I are currently rather fixated on. Contains supernatural elements, so if that's too AU for you, be warned.

Title: In From The Cold
Spoilers: Nothing specific after "The Decembrist".
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Winter weather creates an unexpected danger for Liz, and Ressler must act quickly to ensure her safety.
Disclaimer: I don't own this show or its characters.
Author's Note: Thanks to namarie24 for editing.

Honestly, he thought she wasn't going to make it.

Speaking of good TV

Orphan Black is insanely good. Tatiana Maslany deserves all the hyperbolic praise she gets. I cannot wait for S3 to start (except that it's in April and I really don't want to skip until then). It's a worthy successor to Fringe in all the right ways so far, so as long as it's planned as carefully as it seems like it has been for two seasons, it may end up being one of my top favorite shows of all time.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fall finale

Dude. If you'd told me after the first few episodes of this show that I had something like this to look forward to, I would not have believed you.

(Spoilers if you haven't seen said episode)

This show has become (heh, no pun intended) something pretty darn amazing. Worthy of its Whedon-ness, finally - complete with painful character deaths, of course. But the fact that I love these characters enough to be crushed when one of them dies is definitely a good thing.

I kind of want to write fic, but it's a little intimidating to stick my toe in to something as big as the Marvel universe.

Doctor Who - Deep Breath

I felt like I was holding my breath, a little bit, before this season started. Though I have never stopped - will never stop, I imagine - loving the Doctor, and though I can't imagine a time when I won't watch Doctor Who if it's airing, I hadn't been feeling the love so much of late. And my problems stem from the recent writing, so I wasn't sure if a new season & new Doctor would be enough.

Apart from the ending (which looks like one of my least favorite Moffat tropes coming once again, but maybe I'll be wrong), I really enjoyed this one, though. Capaldi is brilliant, Vastra & Co. were great (mostly), and this time the fact that the plot of the episode made little sense didn't take me out of it. And Clara got to have a personality and stuff, so maybe they'll continue with that. That would be nice.

Don't squash my hopes, please, show. I want to love you again.

Seriously, Castle?

Seriously, show?

Spoilers if you haven't seen the S6 finale yet.

Spoilery rantCollapse )
So you better exceed my expectations when you come back, show, instead of living down to them like you did tonight.

This was it. It was really happening. She had done the unforgivable, and there was no last-minute reprieve coming this time.Collapse )

DW, Nine

50th Special!!!!

It's been since... well, since The Doctor's Wife since I've enjoyed an episode of DW that much. And this was just perfect. They really outdid themselves, everyone involved. Loved just about everything about the episode - going to need to rewatch it approximately a hundred times. And I was not expecting the resulting possibilities that would be opened up for the show, but I am so looking forward to them!

(Just wish Eccleston could have actually appeared, but alas.)

Why didn't anyone tell me...

... that Legend of Korra was back on? Seriously, I think I'm a fan of Avatar:tLA on Facebook. Shouldn't they, at least, have reminded me?

At least they're short & easy to catch up on (two out of three done already). On that note, you know, Korra's still kind of annoying, but I do like her.
