nanslice: ([FFXV] for real?)
[personal profile] nanslice
My mom and I watched the first episode of the fourth season of Sherlock and what the fuck did we even look at? I don't even really remember the case that well, I just remember the social drama aspects. Why was John flirting with that woman? Did he physically cheat on her or was it only emotional cheating? I'M VERY OFFENDED WITH THIS. I don't want John to be the type of person to cheat. :( Also, uh, not digging Sherlock having friends? Where's my weirdo, 'everyone hates him', Sherlock? I want that guy back. And now Mary's dead and that whole scene seemed really hackneyed and overacted and John's mad at Sherlock and what????

We'll probably finish up this season because we're completionists but dang, what a terrible way to start things lmao.

Also so I watch Law and Order: SVU, right? I know, I know, but look, it's my mom's show, it's a thing that has been around and on my tv ever since it started and it's weirdly comforting. Anyway, I've never been interested in its fandom at all. I didn't even know it had a fandom outside of like, older women on message boards or whatever.

But apparently I just need the right ship. Enter Dominick "Sonny" Carisi and Rafael Barba.


GUYS IT'S WEIRD TO BE READING FIC OF THIS SHOW???? Like, I have never had any interest ever of having anything to do with this and yet, here we are. I'm going to back and watch the 16th and 17th seasons. The 18th season, from what I remember, is basically garbage, but I'll rewatch it when it hits netflix. XD

And of course, I've got fic recs:

In Vino Veritas by [ profile] etothepii: Also known as: Sonny Carisi's Life, as Told Through Binge Drinking. (Rated E)

breaking the stones in my wall by [ profile] vlieger: "Get out of my office, detective," snaps Rafael. (Rated E)

in between (there's you and me) by [ profile] gollumgollum: He doesn't like it when things get messy. He prefers clean breaks, and he deeply appreciates that this is the first moment that Sonny has even tiptoed over the line Rafael had drawn in the sand when he'd ended things between them. He doesn't want to encourage further intrusions, further boundary testing.


That's not really what this is, tonight. Even Rafael can see that. Sonny's so quiet, so withdrawn. He's hurt and hurting, and he came to Rafael because he didn't know where else to go. (Note Rated)

What the Rain Washed Up and Away by [ profile] slashy: something small for leslielol, who asked that i write more barisi, and then prompted me both “accidental date” and “shitty weather”. (Rated G)

Treading the Riptide by [ profile] flyingwide: Barba’s narrowed eyes flashed over him, assessing, and he knew any hope he had that Barba had by some miracle not managed to catch that was futile. “And you’re still interested?” he asked, voice soft and quiet and tripping some alarm in Sonny that blared “deadly.” He’s a danger to you, his mind screamed at him. He’ll eat you alive.


No one ever accused Sonny Carisi of being a coward. Or of having a strong sense of self-preservation. (Rated E)

Absolution by [ profile] Robin: After the latest sins of the Catholic church are revealed, Carisi feels like his faith is shaken. But he finds reassurance in the last person he expected to follow him to a church. Takes place after Season 17, Episode 18: Unholiest Alliance. (Rated Teen and Up)

Also I made the mistake of reading a fic that hasn't been updated in a year and I'm so mad at myself. *___* It's so good but I have little hope of it updating. ;3;

ANYWAY, let's see. I think that's about it right now. :\a I need to find some icons now. XD

Yeah, the first episode is my least favourite of season four.

I most definitely thought so. I mean, season four is a hot mess. It's like season three, only even weirder. I still enjoyed the second and third episode, but for very different reasons, and episode two was probably my favourite. Some really great character moments - Mrs. Hudson gets the best lines in the whole show - the actual crime plot was pretty chilling, and I loved the story-telling in this one. Episode three is all about Mycroft for me. *g*

I haven't watched it, but I heard Ep4.01 was the worst far and above...

But oh wow, I was like "I recognize the name vlieger but where from?"

And then I hit their profile and they used to be in my fandom! So that was a nice surprise to find them on your list (though I don't think we share a fandom anymore) (she said, with tears in her eyes at recognizing somebody from her fannish past)

But yey for new fandoms + ships!

Uuugh, that sucks :/ I'm sorry to hear that.

Hockey RPF ^^ It's put me off RPF for the foreseeable future, but looking back I cannot be sad to have been in it.

But hey, learning new stuff is also exciting, isn't it? :D

omg. You sold me this ship in just three gifs. I haven't watched anything SVU for ages. I don't even know who these characters are. (I think from fannish osmosis Barba is the ADA?) Wow. The chemistry is real.

Raul Esparza was an amazing Doctor Chiltern on Hannibal, so it's super weird to think of him playing a good guy. (Is he a good guy? I am making assumptions!)

I am going to hunt down a way to watch it - it's not lilacsigil''s cup of tea, but hopefully it will be streaming on something somewhere. Or, you know, other means.
