Tonight's episode of Justified was so good.

Spoilers )

And late last week there was this:

Suits 2x16 )

Now I will probably go fall asleep in front of the same House of Cards episode I've fallen asleep during twice before. It's not that the show is bad, it just requires a level of awake attention I don't really have in me.

Other than TV, I've been all hockey, hockey, hockey really. Have developed more Rangers and Ryan Callahan feelings in time for them to really suck, even though holy hell Ryan was insane today in the second period. He was blocking shots and taking hits without a stick because he'd broken it earlier in the shift! Other people would get a new one, but no not Ryan I-will-put-my-body-on-the-line-for-fucking-anything Callahan. <33 There needs to be more Ryan/Dan Girardi fic, fandom. Get on that.

And the Canes continue to be delightful even though I haven't made myself watch the highlights of today's game because it just sounds awful. I love how they've embraced Alex Semin into their crazy hockey family and how well him and EStaal have been working together.

As for my third team, the Kings. Things are improving and I still have far more feelings than I comfortable with about Jeff Carter. Far more. I mean due to Backhand Shelf (hockey podcast) I was composing a Carts/Richie vid to Kelly Clarkson songs the other day! Fuck my life.

I still love MvsW as a hockey podcast, I do but I must admit to a small tiny crush on Justin Bourne and his pigtail-pulling relationship with Jake is pretty delightful.

Good things that happened today:

  • Achieved things at work

  • Canes won with Jeff Skinner goals and an Eric Staal hat-trick! <33

  • Jeff Carter got a goal (good for my hockey fantasy team, and well my Jeff Carter feelings have returned)

  • Andrew Ference was interviewed on MvsW (hockey podcast) and was pretty great

  • I watched the end of S5 of Fringe with [personal profile] labellementeuse. I might type up more comprehensive thoughts later but there were lots of feelings and on the whole I thought they did a good job. The show was a big part of my fandom life for a while and I will miss it on some level.

  • Parks and Rec had a pretty cute episode

  • This Suits episode happened. I sort of want to make out with whoever wrote this episode )


See New York Rangers, if only you'd won as well it would have been perfect. ;)

Suits 2x10 )

Fangirl Friday last night was great. Politics, hockey, comics and lots of excellent travel advice. <3 you guys.

Not a lot planned this weekend except dinner with my friend tonight. Although I am going to need to leave the house to find breakfast at some point. My pantry is a little bare.

But first I can see me losing some time to Tumblr. Suits summer finale, Jeff Carter's day with the Cup ...

EDIT: I meant to include VVC recs! (so I can close some tabs)

It's All Coming Back to Me Now by [personal profile] trelkez. (Captain America comics, Steve/Bucky)

I am pretty new to Cap comics but I did love this. All the feelings. (And yes it is a vid to the Celine Dion song).

Lateralus by [livejournal.com profile] rhoboat (Fringe)

The visuals in this and the way it's tied together is just stunning.

Girl in the War by [livejournal.com profile] amnisias (Justified, Loretta)

Loretta vid! And to a great Josh Ritter song too.

How I Got Over by [personal profile] heresluck (The Wire, S4)

Just stunning S4 vid. The song choice is perfect and oh god, it brought back the season all over again. So well done.

Barring the awesomeness that was the Los Angeles Kings winning the Stanley Cup on Tuesday, this whole week can take a running jump. I even had job interviews that went okay(ish) and still, blah blah. I feel stupid and incapable, and I don't know what I want to do, and work is stupid (and only for the next two weeks) and I’m questioning everything. Blah.

So eloquent.

And I know people have had far more difficult weeks that that, so *big hugs* to anyone who needs one. <3

Today at work I had pictures of the LA Kings taking the Stanley Cup to Dodger Stadium open in a few tabs to cheer me up. (see what has happened here?) Jeff Carter, has your hair always been that blonde? Or is the absence of the beard drawing my attention back to it? Or is just the lighting in this photo?

I went back and read the Carter/Richards primer yesterday and … seriously. Because it now ends LOL AND THEN THEY WON A STANLEY CUP TOGETHER. Because life works like that for them apparently. I also did not realise that people from Columbus (incl. Rick Nash) having to effectively drag Jeff Carter out of his beach house was freaking canon. JFC boys. What are your lives? Anyway, I was ridiculously happy for their ridiculous faces and the rest of the Kings and their adorable small humans who took-over press conferences and drank chocolate milk out of the Stanley cup in Spiderman outfits.(asfjhkagl)

You should read this fic about them getting drunkenly married. It’s beautiful. And the AO3 link should be nice and speedy. Oh, filters, you were so pesky. (big changes to search and browse coming to make them …less pesky). Much love to the coders/systems people who worked to speed everything back up. <3

... I meant to go to bed earlier. But Friday tomorrow. I'm not predicting much different for my Friday night tbh. Saturday, I'm seeing Prometheus.

(Also finally got a hockey icon. I had to with this picture. Arnold needs to be pictured with the cup, or they both need to sleep in a bed with it ... or something. The fic ideas are endless. Let's no get into the one about how they lost the playoff beards).

I watched the Kings/Devils game today with [personal profile] labellementeuse and [livejournal.com profile] deepbluemermaid and the following things may have been said:

  • "Did Mike Richards just tumble over the boards into Jeff Carter's lap?" (I don't think that was Carts in retrospect but it looked like him at the time).

  • "Guys this is really not the time to be ... oh of course it's Ritchie."

  • "How can you make that save, Marty?! You're 40!"

  • "Fuck you, Zach Parise. Fuck. You." (x1000)

and eventually:

  • "Fuck you, Marty." (I felt kinda bad because the man is a legend but Marty Brodeur you have two Olympic gold medals and three Stanley Cup rings ... stop being greedy. Yes, I'm so very rational about this).

Oh, Kings. I admit I'm bandwagoning them but I now really, really want this for them and they're making it so hard on themselves and Tuesday at work is now going to be incredibly stressful for no work-related reason at all.

While I was always going to be cheering for them, I must admit that the Kings feelings have been helped along by quite a few feelings about Jeff Carter (and Mike Richards to a slightly lesser extent). Yes, I did read Ballad of a Broken Bromance recently, how did you guess? I've kind of fallen for them. Hard.

Look at his reunited with Ritchie smile! - I still have this gif-set open in a tab right now. (the original interview is on YT here).

I also listened to him on Cabbie's podcast where he was pretty endearing ("tks bud" - pretty much all his text messages, and he can apparently cook and he cooks for Ritchie!) Even if a lot of Cabbie's podcasts seem to involve him trying to get laid via knowing various members of the Los Angeles Kings.

Anyway, I'm done. Really.

(Still have a lot of Eric/Jeff, Eric/Cam, Eric/Jeff/Cam feelings too and Scott Hartnell and Jordan Eberle are also quite endearing ... fuck you, hockey).

Other things!

I have been rewatching bits of Generation Kill and oh, feelings. Especially Brad feelings and I forogt how many times him and Nate just staaare at each other. Also, ASkars is pretty. This better not lead to me catching-up on True Blood because no. No. You're not that pretty Alexander. (Considering my recent celebrity crushes, I seem to have a thing for guys called Alex ... and really tall blond people. It all comes back to ASkars apparently IDK).

I also spent last weekend weekend going through the GK tag on my pinboard and reading allll the fic, including this awesome frat AU Bright College Years and I forgot that Brad played hockey in it. I mean, it's mentioned in passing, but hockey. I am that easy. Yes.

... yeah okay not so much other things.

Back to hockey!

Have some pictures of hockey players and some GIFs - Eric, Cam, Jeff (Skinner not Carter), Hank, Sharpy within )

Other things (really this time)!

I lost quite a bit of time yesterday to this via a rec by [livejournal.com profile] queenklu

I was also planning to go on about how apparently it was my 10-year LJ-anniversary in April. Yep, totally missed it. It led to me looking at my old journal which, wow. Yeah. I mentioned RL stuff a lot more. A lot more. Also I uh apparently wrote Remus/Bill. Who knew? Anyway, any deeper thoughts I've had have been chased away by hockey.

I meant to discuss Euro too bust mostly my reaction is WTF Netherlands? I first got into football via France 1998 and watching them play so I still have bit of a soft-spot for them even if they played dickishly in the World Cup final in 2010. Denmark, dudes?
