So, I'm now in Wellington. Oh, I've missed this ridiculous city. In the taxi on the way into the city it really felt like coming home. I mean, I'll always be from Christchurch, but Wellington is definitely more like home now. I missed so much about, and a lot of that is food-centric, which I didn't expect, but I probably should have. I was walking around on Wednesday making a mental list of places I needed to eat.
I've had one job interview (on the day I arrived no less), but I didn't get it, so I've been looking at temping (again) and other roles. We'll see what happens, I guess. I also need to flat hunt, but I'd like to get the job thing underway first. If any locals know of anything going, whether that be flats of jobs, let me know.
Otherwise, it's been all H50. I've now seen all of Season 1 and oh god, they are all so ridiculous and pretty and I love them. Steve especially. Yeah, that's a shocker. I've always had a small thing about Navy SEALs (I think there was a documentary I watched when I was a kid, I have no idea, I'm also fascinated by aircraft carriers), and this fandom has made it so much worse.
There's some really quite good episodes in the season, but also some ones which well, was the Puff Daddy one really necessary? This show can stunt cast like no ones business.
There was also this promo
, which Tumblr had a collective freak out about, which well, just watch it. Steve, you are so precious. And insane. So insane. I saw a comment in someone's LJ about how he actually might have less common-sense that John Sheppard, and I think that's true. Who even thought that was possible?

Mafia AU - and it's glorious. Danny is amazing as a mob boss and Steve is well, Steve, so a BAMF. The way the S1 plot is altered is so well done, and the twists and turns had me on the edge of my uh, bed. It's a long read - but so, so worth it. Ho'oponopono

Steve/Danny. Danny is caught in a Groundhog Day/Window of Opportunity like scenario. So well done, and the characterisation is spot-on.
(Yay for the AO3 share button).
I would also like to say that I am in no way thinking about making a Steve/Danny vid to a pretty cheesy pop song. Except, that I totally am. It works just too, too well.
And there's still fic bunnies. Oh god, this show.
Yay for September though. Fringe, Community, The Good Wife are all back, and well, this ridiculous show is too. There should be icons.
