Current Shows  
I don't know how it happened, but my latest TV show obsessions are actually current shows! This hasn't happened to me in such a long time. Generally, I pick up a show just as it ends or after its over and watch all the boxsets, but lately I've fallen for shows that are still airing! Here's the run-down...

Timeless - I know Season 1 is over in the US and just recently in the UK too, and there's no guarantee of renewal, but technically it is a current show and OMG it's SO GOOD! Loved the concept, loved the execution, love the actors, and the shallow part of me is salivating over Wyatt Logan every week! lol I really, really hope it gets a Season 2, not least because that last episode was such a cliffhanger!

Lethal Weapon - This one just finished in the US I think, and here in the UK we just had episode 5 of 18. I wasn't sure about it, because I'm not crazy about the movies but at the same time I like them enough that I wasn't sure they should be remade. Then came Clayne Crawford and his take on Martin Riggs. I love that guy. Can't help it, just do. Need to see more.

The Librarians - Unfortunately, I don't get the channel this airs on here in the UK so I have yet to see Season 3 which aired in the US in its entirety already; however, the DVDs will be available in a couple of weeks and I'm currently rewatching Season 2 to prepare me. I came for the Kane and stayed for everything else. Such an epic show!

Gilmore Girls - Yup, I'm counting this one. When I started watching this show, it was over. Seven seasons of boxset to enjoy, and enjoy I did, and then came the revival. Now this is technically a current show again, despite the fact I really did not enjoy A Year in the Life for the most part. It had so much potential and disappointed me so much, but man, I love me those 'classic' episodes from back in the day :)

Meanwhile, I have dropped two other current shows from my watching schedule - Once Upon A Time and The Big Bang Theory. I'm sorry but these two seem to have morphed into unrecognisable caracitures of their former awesome selves, and I'm afraid I'm done.

Vidding...  
Sometimes I still go back to my video editing program and see what I can conjure... Two very different things happened this week. What do you guys think?

Fic: The Christmas Miracle series  
Since I don't post much fic here anymore, I thought at least I would put up links to the set of 4 one-shots I have written for Christmas this year. Additionally, there are 4 previous one-shots that belong to the same series, which I began in (2010).

The Christmas Miracle Series, Part 2 (2015):

V. A Gilmore Christmas Miracle [Gilmore Girls]
VI. A Tallahassee Christmas Miracle [Once Upon A Time]
VII. A Caffrey Christmas Miracle [White Collar]
VIII. An X-Men Christmas Miracle [X-Men movieverse]

The Christmas Miracle Series, Part 1 (2010):

I. A Neptune Christmas Miracle [Veronica Mars]
II. Chuck vs the Christmas Miracle [Chuck]
III. The Christmas Miracle Job [Leverage]
IV. The Christmas Miracle Hypothesis [Big Bang Theory]

The entire series can also be found at AO3

Merry Christmas! :)

Top 5 Hits

Hart of Gold, OUAT, Rumpel/Belle, 5287 hits. Modern Day AU. Isabelle Hart is the latest alias of a legendary grifter and thief. Her latest con involves bringing down ruthless business tycoon, Robert Gold, but this particular job was never her idea... -- I think AU Rumbelle was pretty big when I wrote this. I'm not sure if it would be more of less popular if I wrote & posted it now.

Avengers in Babysitting, MCU, various pairings, 2613 hits. Following the Battle of New York, Darcy Lewis is interning at Stark Tower, where all the of Avengers now live. When a mysterious package arrives for Tony, it's Darcy who must deliver it to the latest Avengers meeting in the conference room. Is it a bomb? A gift? A trophy? An AC/DC record? None of the above - it's a baby. Now the Avengers must face their scariest challenge yet - baby-sitting a six month old! Pepper is blaming Tony, Clint is looking to a future with Natasha, Steve and Thor are thinking about their respective past and future relationships, and Darcy is setting her sights on the softer side of Bruce. All this before they even discover that this isn't any ordinary child they're taking care of... -- written for the Marvel Bang last year, I really didn't expect anyone to read it, but they did! lol

Further on Down the Road, Leverage, ELiot/Parker, 2468 hits. Post-Season 3. After Moreau is dealt with, Eliot feels he must leave the team, maybe just for a while or maybe forever. Parker thinks its a bad idea for him to go away at all, and handles it in her own singular way. -- I loved writing this road trip fic and was thrilled when it proved popular.

What Might've Been, Gilmore Girls, Rory/Jess, 2426 hits. Jess is sent to live with his Uncle Luke around the same time that Lorelai and Rory move into their house in Stars Hollow. Getting to know each other from age eleven leads to an evolved relationship for Rory and Jess that was never romantic, but as the best friends reach age sixteen, what might change? -- My first 'full-length' GG fic.

The Runaways, Gilmore Girls, Rory/Jess, 2198 hits. Rory can't face home after sleeping with Dean, fighting with Lorelai, and touring Europe with her grandma. Running away suddenly looks very appealing, and she's headed towards the one person who always seems to understand her, even when Rory doesn't understand herself. Literati. -- My second 'full-length' GG fic.


Top 5 Kudos

Hart of Gold, 138 kudos.

Avengers in Babysitting, 109 kudos.

A Little Understanding, X-Men, Rogue/Logan, 94 kudos. Of all the people at Xavier's school, nobody understands each other quite as well as Logan and Rogue. -- My first X-Men fic ever, I didn't think anyone woudl luck it since most Rogue/Logan fics tend to err towards smut and mine was just cute ;)

What Might've Been, 82 kudos.

Further on Down the Road, 78 kudos.


Top 5 Bookmarks

Hart of Gold, 28 bookmarks.

Further on Down the Road, 17 bookmarks.

Objects in the Rearview, Leverage, Eliot/Parker, 15 bookmarks. AU Mid-to-Late Season 4. Parker isn't sure what to think when she realises her heart just isn't in her relationship with Hardison. She turns to Eliot for advice, and that only seems to make things more complicated! -- My last major E/P fic before I took a break. Nice to know it didn't suck!

What Might've Been, 15 bookmarks.

The Blame Game, Gilmore Girls, Rory/Jess, 14 bookmarks. Starts in 2.19 Teach Me Tonight. When the car crash happens differently, with wholly different consequences, it causes Rory & Jess to make different choices in their relationships and changes how they both move forward. It also alters things for Luke & Lorelai too. Literati. -- This one was fairly short but I guess some folks just liked it.


All in all, it seems the same few fics get all the hits, kudos, and bookmarks, and its never the ones I expect! lol

Fic Update - January 2014  
So, I made a decision that my fics will now be posted almost entirely at Fanfiction.net and AO3. I don't get much feedback here on LJ, and its easier for me to post in these other two places. However, I will be posting approximately once a month here on LJ for anyone who is still keeping track of me on here, updating you on any fic I have posted elsewhere.

Vid: They Belong Together (Gilmore Girls, Rory & Jess, Seasons 2-3)  
I just recently became a big fan of Gilmore Girls and a huge shipper of Rory/Jess. They seem to be headed for a break up as I head towards the end of Season 3, which made me long for the days in Season when they were falling for each other, and early Season 3 when they first got together. Plus, this song has invaded my brain, I love it like woah! So, here's the vid that was born outta all this:



Disclaimers:
I do not own Gilmore Girls - it belongs to other folks that aren't me.
Ho Hey is by The Lumineers and I don't own that either.
