'Kay, everyone. This is how I've voted so far on March Madness (at this point, none of them are strategic unless I feel very strongly that a character that is leading shouldn't win). Feel free to try and sway my vote for any fandom for which I have not yet voted (you're also more than welcome to try for the ones for which I've already placed my vote, although I don't promise you'll succeed XD)! I've placed a star next to any character I'd love you to vote for if you're not invested in the fandom.

Arrested Development - Lindsay Bluth Funke

LAURIE FOR COUGAR TOWN PLEASE!!! :) and Alex for Happy Endings, though she doesn't stand a chance. OH. AND KATE BECKETT FOR CASTLE, obviously. This is me after all. Will change my GoT vote according to your wishes tomorrow when I'm not on my phone (all the others with a * are the ones I voted for anyway, except for TGW as I'll stan Diane in the prelims for the rest of my life. Haha.) Will vote for Kalinda in the main round though, obvi.

Done, done, and done (I may not watch Castle anymore, but I always adored Kate Beckett -- SO ABSOLUTELY DONE).

Awww, you're a star! And it pains me that I can't vote for more than one person on TGW because hiiiii Diane and Alicia. Who'd you vote for re: TWW, if you don't mind my asking?

Awesome, you're the best!

Re: TWW, I voted for CJ. Of course ;)

Fandom march madness! \o/ Truly the best time of the year. Though wow, lots of difficult choices this year. I didn't realize how accidentally invested I was in Glee until I had to look at it and decide between Tina, Santana, Mercedes, and Mike Chang (I blame the Troubletones; the best decision Glee has ever made). Also Parker! I struggled between her and Hardison though I went with him eventually. There are many categories I wish I could do two characters in this year.

It is a fantastic time of year (especially as it usually coincides with my spring break, which starts Thursday afternoon =P). Glee was surprisingly hard! But I've been invested in Rachel since the very beginning (there is way too much of her in me, which is ... probably a bad thing but whatever =P - over-identification ftw!), so I really didn't have a choice. And yesss, I struggled with Leverage as well -- between the same two! Glad you evened it out. <3

I'm just relieved Merlin isn't on there. I'd be voting for and promoting the hell out of Gwen, because JFC I LOVE HER SO MUCH, Z. But I would feel so blegh about promoting the show after that awful season. D=

I didn't even think about that! I'm glad too though, less facepalming for me...:p

Spring break! That's great for you. :D We have reading week at the end of April so this is basically the time of year school starts punching you in the face. That's why I'm on livejournal now, after a week of frantically writing essays I needed a day off.

I miss the days Rachel was one of my favourites. They've done so much wrong with her storyline lately I can't invest in her anymore. :( This whole marriage storyline feels like Glee majorly lost the plot. It's nice she still has some fans though.

That's a good way to look at it! I was sad initially because I wanted to make this the year Gwen swept it. But it's true, that would be an implicit recommendation of the show and I refuse. >l Still haven't watched past 4.09, I am too put out at their choices.
posted by [identity profile] at 03:15am on 07/03/2012
I've been shipping Rachel/Happiness since the very beginning, so ... yeah. I can't let it go. Just holding out hope that she will finally get it. And they have DEFINITELY done her wrong, and I'm crossing my fingers that the marriage plot will turn out quite differently.

THAT WAS PROBABLY A WISE DECISION. Watched the entire season, and ugh, 4x11 and 4x13. There was some hope in 4x12 (lines said by Arthur that could possibly be interpreted as him acknowledging that Gwen isn't around because of a choice he made! A reunion between the two that actually felt real and suggested there was hope of things not being completely hateful towards Gwen!), but then 4x13 swept in with Arthur making Gwen feel like shit all over again and Isolde having to die so Arthur could realize the same bullshit he realized in 4x11 (THAT HE WANTS TO BE WITH GWEN AND THEY CAN FIND A WAY PAST WHAT HAPPENED JFC GET SOME CONTINUITY, WRITERS). And 4x11 treated Gwen like shit (like the entire point of that episode was "how much trauma can we put this girl through? attack on village she finally found refuge in? Check. Captured as pretty much a sex slave? Check. Almost freezing to death in forest in effort to save Camelot? Check. Morgana chasing her down and attacking her? Check. Gwen being turned into a dear and shot? Spending a painful night nearly dying in the forest? CHECK. But never mind her, Arthur's upset because he doesn't like that he still loves her. LET'S FOCUS ON ALL OF HIS SAD FACES."). And her feelings were completely dismissed in 4x13 and it looks like she's going to spend the rest of her life thinking she kissed Lancelot of her own accord. So. (SORRY FOR THIS RANT. OH DEAR. So many negative feelings returning!)

Basically you made the right decision. Because I'm dedicated to seeing out Gwen's story, I've been actively forgetting (not well, clearly) the episodes that made me rage and replacing it with my happyplace AU. It's a long process.

at the end of *February, wow that is a ridiculous error. We finish school by April! 0_o

Wait, did I miss something, like Alisha and Kelly having the same surnames, or was that a mistake? :s

Also, HAVE YOU SERIOUSLY STILL NOT READ THG YET?! O_o Guuurrrl, you need to get on that, it is your summer reading assignment from me, lol! :p

As for requests, my main one is Margaret Schroeder for Boardwalk Empire (under Drama), who is winning but only by about 20 points--I really want her to win! Also two I don't see on your list that aren't important, but if you are messing with votes again at some point...;)

True Blood - Eric
Twilight - Jacob

YOU DID MISS THIS. I don't think it was mentioned in the SHOW, but summaries or the producers or something revealed that they have the same surname. It's ridiculous. But whatever.

No, I haven't! I've been too busy, and also I'm wary because I'm told it's in first person? I do intend to get to it eventually!

Will do! And I will gladly vote for Jacob. Edward can gtfo, thanks.

Also, re your question on FB (I'm ignoring FB right now because of the drama going on), I think my tutoring sessions will be in the evening because my tutor has his job during the day. But I know one of the days I'll have to go in for my interview ... assuming I get an interview. XD Anyway, it's at the same place as where I'm getting tutored!
posted by [identity profile] at 02:42am on 07/03/2012
It's soooo gooood though omg, or at least really gripping and interesting! (Lol, usually I prefer 1st person myself).

TY! And okay will you not be in the area during the day then? Maybe you could come early one day? Hopefully the interview day won't be when I'm at a school or something! (And if you have a smartphone, you should get the FB message app--then you're just dealing with FB messages but not any other part of FB.)
posted by [identity profile] at 02:49am on 07/03/2012
I don't have a smart phone, but it's actually the messages I'm trying to avoid. I've been inundated with claims that I'm taking sides and putting my nose where it doesn't belong. SO. Trying to avoid that.

How late are you around? Because my first tutoring session is at 6, and I imagine it'll be around that time the other days. And I'll let you know as soon as I know my interview day! What days are you at school, in case they give me a choice?
posted by [identity profile] at 02:56am on 07/03/2012
Ugh, how lame! :/ I meant to say, sorry you have to deal with all that crap, hun! *hug*

I'm often around until 6 pm or so, so that could work! Or maybe we could grab a bite to eat before one of the sessions right there--there are a gazillion eating places nearby.
posted by [identity profile] at 03:07am on 07/03/2012
Ooh yes. I'm actually rather familiar with the various eating places -- my parents both (or I guess just my mother now) works in the building I'm going to be tutoring at. =P That's a definite possibility!

And thank you. <3 <3 <3

LOL! For a second there, I actually thought you were referring to the games. (Next time read the whole thing first, V)

Yay for Sansa. She really gets so much crap from people. I just want to give her a huge hug!!!!
posted by [identity profile] at 03:58pm on 08/03/2012
LOL, sorry. If it helps, the only sports I'm into are baseball, tennis, soccer, and ice-skating ... and even then I never get really involved. XD SO JUST AUTOMATICALLY TRUST IT'S FANDOM. =P

Sansa is my favorite. Love that girl a whole freaking lot. The hate she gets from fandom is unbelievable.

I can't actually remember who I voted for, but I was so excited to see Leverage as an option! Go Parker!
posted by [identity profile] at 03:59pm on 08/03/2012
Right?! Oh, Leverage, you precious show.
