Where's Diana when you need her? lol. Ironically my fanfic for her and Lois has been completely plagiarized by someone called Avalonofthewind on ff.net. I posted a review calling them out on it and PM'd them but I doubt they'll respond.

ETA: The fic has been taken down. User claims that their page was hacked and it was posted by someone else. Sounds fishy to me but what I wanted was done. Hopefully the fic doesn't show up somewhere else.

Here's a bit of proof )

Prospect Park announced they might not go through with continuing All My Children online (which bums me out severely) but they're full steam ahead with One Life To Live. The reasoning being they don't have that many people signed on for AMC, including La Lucci, while they have a HUGE amount of important cast members signed on for OLTL.

Including Florencia Lozano aka Tea I'm The Most Bad Ass Attorney Ever Delgado!! Ahhh, fangirl squee of love and joy. I adore Tea above all other females on OLTL. Her and Blair's frenemy relationship is my OTP on that show and yay for seeing more awesome Tea/Dani mother/daughter scenes for I love them dearly.

Also? They signed on David Vickers. Yay! If only Dorian hadn't said no. AMC bums me out because above all else I'm a huge Bianca Montomery fangirl and Christina Bennett Lind's interpretation of the character was made of fabulous.

Still. I have Tea now. So much joy for Tea.

The ABC finale of AMC aired today and it was cliffhangery. I liked it and I'm less anxious than I was because it wasn't really a repeat of the Madolvian Massacre in the fact that it's probably just one person that JR took out but it could be nearly anyone. I hope not Bianca/Marissa or Erica and Kendall. We'll see what happens when the show comes back. I wonder how they're going to film all of it though. They will definitely have to recast JR since Jacob Young signed onto Bold & The Beautiful. Anyway. Today's show with all the old school characters back made me irrationally wish we could somehow keep them all once the show begins online. I doubt that will ever happen but it was so great seeing all those characters together again.

Still! It was a decent way to "end" things until it starts online. I know some people aren't happy because it wasn't dramatic enough for them but honestly... I didn't want to see a gigantic scene with JR just taking out all these people as if it was Scarface done daytime style. That's just stupid to me. The way they ended things, I think it's pretty clear that only one person got shot and it could be anyone at that party. Which leaves me hopeful about the state of my various Kane/Montgomery/Lavery/Tasker people. Hopefully we'll be seeing AMC beginning in January at the same time as OLTL for the web series. In the meantime, I'm a sad person and picked up the special AMC edition of People Magazine.

Oh, I don't think I ever got to reply to these questions on last night's show about AMC. My favorite couple (other than Bianca/Marissa) is a tie with Erica/Dimitri and Brooke/Adam. Worst storyline throughout the years? Reversing Erica's groundbreaking abortion. I never understood the logic in that. And I'm going to miss (temporarily) checking in Monday - Friday with all these odd fictional characters with their various dramas who have somehow worked their way into my heart like they were real people.

Everyone has been calling/texting me all day because they knew of my inevitable heartbreak over All My Children and One Life To Live being cancelled. AMC has until September of this year and OLTL is on until January 2012. At this point, I just hope Jack/Erica are together, Bianca gets her happy ending with Marissa, and maybe we'll get lucky and Zach will come back from the dead to be with Kendall.

OLTL has longer to wrap up their storylines so I have more hope for that show ending well, especially since the writing has been fabulous lately. I just really hope the send off on both shows is a happy and good one for the characters I care a really sad amount about.

As for all the people who comment that of course they got cancelled, soaps are such a stupid and low form of entertainment with shit writing, I ask them what the fuck do they think Grey's Anatomy or any other number of primetime shows are. They're soaps that are on at night. You're not on some entertainment high horse. Stop being assholes when people are genuinely bummed over this.

Blerh. Anyway. I guess when everything goes down I'll convert to watching Y&R. At least I know some of the characters on that show and care about them. Plus it has Eden and Liz.

Seriously. I love love love love horror films but can American filmmakers PLEASE stop remaking good foreign horror films already? Almost without exception they make a dumbed down shite version of an original brilliant piece of work and it's starting to seriously piss me off.

Now they've remade Let The Right One In. Seriously? SERIOUSLY? Why would you do this? This is a fantastically scary and just plain chilling vampire movie (that has a genuine realism in the plot/characterization) which is hard to achieve in the age of Twilight version vampires and Hollywood decides to remake it for Americans? Blerh. Oh yes. The director of Cloverfield is responsible. This will be great. (Sarcasm.)

If you have any interest in seeing Let Me In then please please please just rent Let The Right One In. I can guarantee it's going to be far superior. Just like Rec was to Quarantine and Into The Mirror was to Mirrors. Maybe if people stop going to see them they'll stop the remakes of good foreign horror and concentrate on attempting to make some original movies of their own that are halfway decent instead of ruining good ones in existence.

And here's the trailer for Let The Right One In.

Fabulous and freaky, no? Yes. Yes, it is.

So I just got done watching One Life To Live and for those of you who aren't aware, Tea Delgado has been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. She just got news she has a few weeks to live and as her condition degrades she won't be able to recognize her loved ones and will eventually lose her ability to communicate and care for herself completely.

I seriously love Christina Bennett Lind as Bianca.

She's doing a fabulous job in the role but today's episode made me wear such a sad face because they're dropping major anvils that Reese won't be coming back. Seems like they're going the route of an off screen break up much like they did with Maggie which I found super lame the first time around and really didn't need to see it repeated. Maybe we'll be lucky and if they break up it won't be because Reese cheated on Bianca in a totally out of character plot device like they did to Maggie. Seriously. I never liked BAM as a ship but Maggie cheating on Bianca still is something I find somewhat implausible.

Also? Bianca totally makes Ryan tolerable. Her scene with him starts 8:17 into the video. This is the first time CBL has done angst and I think she does it well. In a superficial note... she's soooo pretty you guys. lol. I really hope I'm wrong and they snag Tamara to return as Reese (or they recast) because I would hate to have Bianca back on the AMC landscape (with a shiny and good new actress) only to have her regulated to an asexual no romance role.

In case you haven't heard, a radical islamic website has made thinly veiled threats against Matt and Trey for daring to show a censored version of Mohammed on their 200th and 201st episode. I love Matt and Trey and I really love their show and I love they just don't give a fuck and won't give into threats and things being off limits. If Jesus is okay to make fun of then why the hell not Mohammed? And he's not even being mocked. He just SHOWS UP and their lives are threatened over this?

Especially referencing the filmmaker who was murdered and implying the same can happen to them then giving out the addresses for their studio in California and the Comedy Central offices in NYC. Just... ugh.

ETA: Apparently Comedy Central took it upon themselves to censor the hell out of Episode 201. Can anyone say suck much?

I've been sick on and off for the past month. First it was that evil ear infection and now I've lost my voice (which happens once or twice a year to me without fail) and have a horrible cold. My birthday is on Thursday and my friends are doing something for me which entails taking Friday and Saturday off work. Saturday night my work friend, Brad, who is hilarious and loves horror movies as much as I do, is having his birthday party which I'm attending. I really hope I'm feeling better by then because not much fun to party while sickly.

Plus! On April 1st I leave for Wondercon to hang out with [livejournal.com profile] oneiric22 and I totally don't want to be sick at a super fun nerd convention in San Francisco.

For those mildly curious I'm about halfway through with my fourth Whip It fanfic in the ongoing Ruthless/Maven series. I'm going to try and have it done before I leave for Wondercon. I have tomorrow off work so hopefully I'll feel less miserable and will get some writing done.

This does not remotely resemble my memories of the characters in the Ramona books. Beezus in particular. Why is Selena Gomez playing her? I hate it when things from my childhood are ruined. It's like the Willy Wonka movie remake and I know it did technically follow the book closer but you know what? I don't care. The Gene Wilder version is better and Roald Dahl wrote the screenplay for it.

Anyway. This makes me sad inside and I had to share my pain because I'm mean that way.

This whole kerfluffle with Kevin Smith and Southwest Airlines has me oddly nervous about flying out with American Airlines for Wondercon. I mean, I'm way skinnier than I have been in previous years flying but it seems like airlines are upping their standards on who gets tossed off a plane for being fat and I'm still not a tiny girl.

200 lbs and 5'7" is a sight better than 390 lbs and 5'7" which is what I topped off at my worst but it's not particularly within what our culture finds an acceptable weight/height class either. Still, I am flying with American Airlines and I've never had an issue with them before. Plus I can always call Suzanna for help since she works for them and is at Lambert as a high up staff member. That's only in STL though.

I honestly don't try to think too much about fatphobia type shit because I'm more focused on homophobic asshattery in our society but both are pretty bad. I particularly love the overall impressions a lot of my European friends have that everyone in the USA is a Fatty McFatterson and it's only because we're lazy and don't try hard enough to lose weight and has nothing to do with class and those who are poorer can only afford to buy processed food that is notably unhealthy. Food that is good for you is so much more expensive it isn't even funny. Bah. But I suppose my weight adds to that line of thought that we're all overweight here.

My thumb seriously is. I'm not sure why but the thumb in my right hand keeps twitching and having muscle spasms, nothing incredibly noticeable visually but it sure hurts a lot. If you look at it closely you can see it shaking. Very weird. I would go to a doctor except no health insurance and I sort of hate them and it's just a twitchy thumb. I don't see the point.

However, my Helena icon cheers me up. I always loved it when Helena looked pimp on The L Word. She really is fabulous. Also, Yahoo keeps informing me about TLC suing Jon from Jon & Kate Plus 8 like this is breaking news. Why Yahoo? Why?

ETA: Showtime emailing me this shite...

IC is such a bad penny, y'all. She just will not go away. I'm probably going to watch this train wreck for the same reasons I watch Real Housewives. Which is... uhhh... I dunno. I'm easily entertained.
