SO UM. I feel majorly stupid, but on this whole Hannibal Beverly Katz gets the ax thing I thought everyone was up in arms about the sort of failed death of Bella, and I thought somehow that Katz would escape and still be alive in the next episode, since we didn't TECHNICALLY see her die. And now I'm really upset because I thought she wasn't dead... I finally learn everyone's names & now she's dead. I deeply regret my decision to start watching this show :((( I am deeply deeply upset.

OKAY I KNOW I’M SO RIGHT THERE WITH YOU NO ONE LOVED BEVERLY LIKE I LOVE BEVERLY

BUT

I’M JUST SAYING

THAT WAS AN INCREDIBLE PIECE OF TELEVISION

UGH. LADY. Could The Musketeers be any more completely perfect? I think not. It just gets better and better. The women are incredible. The Countess... UGH. Constance... UGH. (Also King Louie... what a dork.) WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS (because I saw your post last night about this episode, and I wanted to squeal with you but I hadn't seen it yet)?

SOOOOOUUUUULLL!!!! MY LOVE FOR THIS SHOW ECLIPSES THE SUN I’M SO GLAD SOMEONE ELSE IS COMING WITH ME ON THIS JOURNEY OF LEATHER DOUBLETS AND DERRING-DO!!!! I WILL TRy not to type in capslock but it’s really difficult for me because of my EMOTIONS. CONSTANCE!!! PORTHOS!!! D’ARTAGNAN’S WHOLE ADORABLE SEXY FAAAACE!

wow capslocking came back

I thought King Louis was especially hilarious last ep, and Athos’s “melancholy charm” was totally getting me where I live. Plus, feminism and equality? As an episode theme? The weekend of International Women’s Day? THANK YOU SHOW FOR BEING FABULOUS.

CAN WE TALK ABOUT ARAMIS’S RESPECTFUL ROMANTIC ADORATION OF WOMEN AND HOW STONE COLD FOXY HE IS?????

CAN WE TALK ABOUT THOSE INTRICATE SPAULDER THINGS THEY WEAR AND THE TEAL CLOAKS AND THE BOOOOOOOOTS????

CAN I SING YOU A SONG ABOUT HOW MUCH PORTHOS’S LOW PURRING GRUMBLY LAUGH MEANS TO ME???

Always post the rules:

Thanks, Kiwi! I love talking about myself! LOL (seriously tho)

1) Which two fictional characters would have the worst/most dysfunctional relationship you can imagine?

BWAHAHAHAHA I’m so glad you asked this question at the height of my Hannibal Lecter/Will Graham obsession!!! Because yeah. Those two have so much unresolved tension between them and who can tell if it’s sexual or sinister. OH. Right. It’s both. And they’re so meant for each other in an “opposite sides of a twisted little murder coin” way and there’s no way in hell they could get married or adopt babies or play house but gdi if they couldn’t be codependent crimesolving psychopaths who teach Abigail how to cook and take zero shit and maybe they could play cops and robbers once or twice before Hannibal gets locked away and it’s all eyesex, naughty letters, and fingertips stroking through prison bars… Okay, I’ve arrived at a mental place from which I need to escape…in a second…

2) What’s your favourite artist/band?

So, I hate concerts. I just don’t understand why I’d pay lots of money to see bands live when I can just listen to the album at home without 20-20,000 people screaming in my ear and moshing on me. That being said, my favorite artists are those who I’d see live because they’re innovative and creative and maybe what they play at the venue isn’t something that would ever make it to the recording studio but nevertheless isn’t something you’d forget hearing. Top three: Andrew Bird, Jack White, and Merrill Garbus.

3) If you could have one superpower, what would it be?

I’ve put a disgusting amount of thought into this, so here goes. I want the ability to control my density, so I can make myself light as air and fling myself into the wind in order to fly, but I could also redirect my density to my extremities to control over my flight path and to slam back down to Earth in the most hardcore piledrive/bitchslap combo imaginable. *cough* I’d also be able to sneak into pressure-floor bank vaults and float through air ducts and after a training montage or two stop bullets from piercing my flesh because I’d make myself into a diamond-dense fortress of badassery. Call me, Marvel.

4) What’s your favourite book and why?

A question no reader likes to answer, because the minute you put a title out there you think of a hundred more which would be just as good. But, at the moment, I’d have to say my favorite book is Haunted, by Chuck Palahniuk. In actuality, it’s one of my top 5, all of which are interchangeable at any given moment, but Haunted is one of those books that I viscerally recall reading for the first time. I was on summer vacation at my aunt’s house, and people kept asking me what that look on my face was about. It was because I was reading fucking Haunted and that shit is insane. If you’re interested, the other 4 in my top 5 are The Bell Jar, Almost Like Being in Love, Atlas Shrugged, and The Kushiel’s Legacy Trilogy, which totally counts as one book.

5) If you could choose one off-air tv show for the cast to miraculously be reunited for a movie, what would it be?

DUUUUUE SOOOOOOOOOOUTH, THAT’S THE WAY I’M GOING. DUUUUUE SOUUUUUTH.

I would die a hundred deaths to see Paul Gross and Callum Keith Rennie reunite as Benton Fraser and Ray Kowalski, 15 years after their trek into the Canadian wilderness, rugged and lean, working that mountain man Sears catalog lumberjack gloriousness, Fraser’s pretty face mellowed into something achingly handsome and Ray’s fey sex appeal sharpened into wickedness and both of them still so in love with each other, even after more than a decade, comfortable and bickering and flannelwarmfireplacelovemakingughitwouldbesoperfect… then zombies attack or something, idk, but Ray would get a shotgun and Fraser his deadpan snark and they’d kick all available ass.

SHUT UP OKAY, IT’S MY DREAM.

Questions for you guys!

1. Besides Tumblr -obviously- what’s your favorite website?

2. Do you have a small fandom you’d like to see get more attention/fic/art/etc?

3. If you could have one superpower, what would it be? (I love this one)

4. You can unite three shows together for the ultimate crossover arc. Which three? What happens?

5. Which supervillan would you most like to see redeemed, and which hero would you most like to see go dark?

I thought you said it was kinda nasty… must be projecting again. :[] that sounds awful. My mom puts ice cubes in her wine, so as long as you don’t do that, I think you’re pretty solid.

I’m a legit purist when it comes to red wine, but I just happened to have a Twizzler in my mouth and the end dipped into the glass… I couldn’t help myself. I had to test it.

Ice in red wine?! Ugh, my roommate used to do that and it drove me crazy! If you want to water down your alcohol drink Vodka Cranberry, ffs…. *judgement face*

flatulenceofthesoul replied to your post: It’s been a while, and maybe fic has warped my…

I thought it made sense… I spent a long time doing research and making charts (and reading porny fics… ok, whatever)… but I didn’t find any actual plot holes.

Right!? Thank you! I think people want everything spelled out for them explicitly, and just because Inception doesn’t do that doesn’t mean it doesn’t make sense!

Good on you for making charts and doing research, btw. I am definitely in the “read lots of porn fic and wait for someone to make a chart” camp. :D

lol, well, I couldn’t be on here around my family. I also keep the screen tilted away from any open windows, just in case. ;;>.> Not porn, technically… just things that look like porn from a distance. Okay, maybe I’m in denial.

Unfortunately, I totally get what you mean about… well, all of it. I can’t even. It’s so gross. And showing it to us, like we fuckin want to see that. BLEGH. Gives me the creepy-crawlies. I thought you conveyed your train of thought pretty well. And that gif. XD

It doesn’t happen so often that I can’t tumble around the family (sound muted and screen tilted away, just in case a wild dick appears) but there is gay AND straight porn all over the place tonight, and I just… ykinmk, no problems, but I still don’t understand the appeal of twitchy bukkake face.

The bottom looks like they’re about to sneeze, and then the top’s done coming and they have to open their eyes THROUGH the cum and blergh, when they show it to you in their mouth then spit it out?

SO

DISAPPOINTED.

stfu people fucking downvoted Simon and Mal

YOUR SUFFERING IS WEAK COMPARED TO MINE

Hey, two different brackets, man. We both lost, so… suffering seems pretty equal, bottom line….

(I don’t know why it’s not showing your post up there, Seuss… but it says I reblogged you. Weeeird)

I feel numb by the whole thing. :[ Or maybe I was just numb from COTW. Hard to say. I feel bad that I didn’t start voting sooner. I just ignored the whole thing… like, oh what is this dumb thing clogging up the due south tag? PFFT.

WELL.

I UNDERSTAND YOUR PAIN, SEUSSIAN. Damn procedural cop shows. How about the novelty of an UNprocedural cop show??? HUH? WHERE’S THE JUSTICE?? Although considering it went off the air in 1998, I thought it did quite well. It really held its own.

IT JUST WASN’T GOOD ENOUGH.

I thought about cracking out the Bailey’s, but I seem drunk enough already… I don’t know from what. I started reading Hawks and Hands. I’m very confused. Maybe I haven’t gotten far enough, but I think the 200k+ word count scared me off a bit. :[]

ALSO.

“THRUST”

;)

Here’s what I have to say to that: I’d like to see White Collar do as well FOURTEEN years from now!

Yeah. I don’t think so. due South wasn’t beaten by passion, but by trendiness. Contemporary fandom vs. Classic. Both mildly obscure, which means they don’t compare to Spork/Kock or whatever. That pairing’s the granddaddy of ALL slash pairings…

My point is, in fourteen years, due south fandom will still be strong, will still be vital to slash in general. Why? Because WE will be there. The same way we were here today.

/fandom soapbox

Hawks and Hands was great! It took up a weekend, and really kept me involved. Is it a fandom classic? Yes. Because of its length and the way the author deals with Fraser. Is it everything you want in Fraser/RayK? No, but that has less to do with the fic and more to do with the fact that AUs in this fandom suffer a disadvantage because the canon is brimming with potential and those things that makes us sigh and swoon over the characters. But still, it’s worth your time if you’ve got it to spare. The hockey element is VIVID, and really brings life to the story!

There are all kinds of dirty images in my mind over the gag reel.

The “gag” reel.

Thrust, indeed…

First, I have to say that Spork/Kock, generated the most unpleasant mental image, and it had nothing to do with the characters. It did make me laugh though. A sadistic kind of laugh.

I full believe that in 14 years we’ll still be rabidly fangirling/swooning/sighing/…thrusting? See you can use it everywhere!

I think I will give Hawks and Hands another chance… the hockey angle surprisingly caught my attention, not that I particularly like hockey. I think it was that Smithbauer is in it, and I was always very curious about their boyhood.

Ah, the gag reel. I think I’ll go watch it once more before I crawl off to bed with these pleasant thoughts. ;)

OH. And can we also get shirts that just say THRUST on them? In big capital letters?

EDIT: And just for reasons that need exploring at every juncture… when I went to type Due South Gag Reel in on YouTube the suggestion was Due South Gay.

OMFG IT REALLY DOES!! LOL, AND THE THIRD LINK DOWN IS THE THRUSTY GAG REEL.

I MEAN, REALLY.

THIS SHOW - AND ITS FANDOM (THAT MEANS YOU) - IS EVERYTHING TO ME.

*watching gag reel and feeeeeeeeling*
