Answer (according to [personal profile] lilacsigil): Forgive Wesley for starting another virulent plague, then get it on with a Scottish ghost.

I'm wearing my swingy teal coat today, so I'm stealth cosplaying Doctor Crusher. Bring me my hypospray, baby needs a dose of tricordrazine.

6. one thing I dislike about my fave character

8. a quote or scene that haunts me
9. a character I wish died but didn’t
10. my ship that never sailed

Also, health FYI: flu vaccines are available in Australia (they were late coming and have been out of stock for a while.) If you're getting one this year, now is the time. If you have a chronic illness that puts you at higher risk of complications from influenza, like asthma, kidney disease, or if you're immunocompromised, you get it for free.

I had the quadrivalent and it gave me no trouble. ([personal profile] lilacsigil had it too, and her arm looked like it got punched by Shaw the pistol shrimp.)

I love those sort of clothes, that make you feel secretly fannish. And. Real coat sounds lovely.

and her arm looked like it got punched by Shaw the pistol shrimp.


Huh. Mum got the flu shot and bruised up like someone had hit her. It was a remarkable reaction given she's got it for years and never had much of a reaction before. I'm getting mine next week, so heres hoping I avoid that bruising.

That is very cool!

And the flu shot was okay -- very sore around the spot that night, but fine the day after. Can't ask for much more than that.

Our choir robes are black (with buttons or snaps all down the front) with a white overrobe. Sometimes I walk around in just the black and pretend I am Severus Snape. :D

Nice voice with that singer.

From: [personal profile] monanotlisa
I don't understand Rhea killing her husband, when surely the Daxam gene pool is kinda tiny these days. I don't understand that at all. Maybe she has his sperm banked somewhere? Maybe that's a thing Daxomites do? (Kara's all like, "What's this in the freezer, Mon-El?" And Mon-El is like, "Under the chicken fingers? Oh, just my future progeny.")

*dead*

:P

My secret fear is that one of Maggie or Alex are going to get fridged, and the day that happens, I will walk away from this show because I can't take that shit anymore.

*nod*

I did go back to The 100 eventually, because although they killed Lexa it is still a show about young women in leadership positions -- Clarke, Raven, Octavia; some of the grounders this season -- and also Bellamy (whom I like, deep dark flaws and all). Plus, I don't think even someone as dense as JRothenberg would kill a queer woman again after the very public backlash.

Supergirl is not a woke show at the best of times, though, and there is too much Mon-El and too much patriarchic DEO stuff going on. If they fridge Maggie or Alex, I too am out for good.

I am probably most like Winn. Permanent foot in mouth, inappropriate crushes, gets his shit together and is actually really, really competent in the right environment.

Heh. Me too, I think. With a dash of Alex and some Kara veneer.

I could be made very happy with Lena/Kara, I'm just saying. We can have more than one happy gay couple in a show.

Yes!

It'll never happen; the character specs from DC must look like the recent Spiderman specs that surfaced. I think once we have sorted out the pre-apocalyptic minority president and his merry bunch of neofascists, fandom should really put some pressure on where the power is: in contractually locked-in heterosexuality clauses.

From: [personal profile] lost_spook
I liked the song (again)! I don't watch many of our reality TV shows, but I'm fairly sure they don't give that kind of prominence to the judges during the performance, just show theire faces (expressions variably easy/hard to interpret), although, as I said, I don't watch them so I may be wrong. But I was getting terribly ansty and British while watching. (it's so rude to take away attention from the singer and not sit there and listen politely! why are they doing that, please stop! /o\ LOL.)

Hee, I haven't watched The Voice, but usually in these things, the judges don't sit in front of the performers like that, but off to the side, so they're not as prominent. THey react, they make faces and stuff and the camera will show that, but not like above, where the focus seems to be them, rather than the act. (Or at least, in the ones I've seen, perhaps they do in The Voice! I can't say I've even stumbled over that one in passing, not for certain.)

lol. Person of Interest Crabs. I had to read that twice to make sure I didn't misread it. XD (And that crab is definitely Reese)

And glancing through some of your answers: Tony/Bruce is definitely already a thing. And i liked the concept of Bruce/Natasha, but it was done so bad. So, so bad.

(I'm weeping for the very obvious season arcs we never got to see.)
Me too.

because his politics made me expect another NO HOMO type show
Instead of no homo we got a very homo type show. (And even my leaning more on the conservative side mama is fully on team Root/Shaw).
I've not looked into Caviezel's politics really, but I'm guessing he's an uber conservative because I know he's really religious? (though I do know people personally who have managed to be really religious and really liberal and I'm somewhat religious and politically moderate...though the current administration is making me swing more liberal, but anyways).
I wouldn't say the show is very conservative, though religious themes do play in a bit in later seasons. Like the Machine is "God" and Root is like God's prophet (speaking for her). And there's the fact the named the "bad machine" Samaritan, because people think "Good Samaritan," but in the Bible for the most part Samaritans weren't presented as being good people, which is why the "good Samaritan" was worth noting.
Of course, I was an English major and may totally be reading into this too deep. lol
