"In a text post, list ten fics that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” works, or even all the same pairing or fandom, just the fics that have touched you or that stuck with you somehow."

From tumblr. Chosen by going through my bookmarks and seeing which ones jumped out at me. A lot of these are VERY OLD since I have gotten harder to wow as I've read more fic. Sixteen not ten because don't make me chooooose. And yes there is a suprsing amount of Stargate considering I don't actually like the canon, when I first got into fic that was what I encountered the most of and the fandom produced a wide range of interesting stuff. (Also lots of robots which should not be surprising at all)

You know, my attitude going into this episode was "let's just get it over with, at least there's not another one for a while".

I can't be bothered going into it, but if nothing else, as pretty much everyone else has said: You don't call someone "The Haitian" when you're in Haiti.

I can't even tell if I'm annoyed any more, because the characters change so much (and yet any legitimate growth is just as likely to be reset) that all the plot "twists" blur together. I did like that they answered the "Isn't Isaac dead?" question.

Instead, here's A season 1 slash vid. All pairings at once, it amused me with it's audacity :)

Oh, wait, you know what I just realised? Breckin Meyer: not the same person as Shaia LeBouf! Huh.

Very quickly chucked together after Cam and I were discussing it. SPOILERS up to Episode 7, I guess, though inspired by events of episode 8: The last five minutes of Heroes season 3.

NOTE: contains vague-ish spoilers for Season 2/Season 3 premiere

With a lot of shows, you have a fairly small cast of main characters, who get fleshed out and have their own subplots, and then a bunch of minor characters who are fairly shallow and never the main focus, and the audience isn't expected to care about them so the writers can mess them about (kill them off etc) without anyone really minding.

I've decided that the problem with Heroes is that superficially it has a large cast of main characters, but actually it's just that it fleshes out it's minor characters more. They appear to be main characters, having fairly complex characterisations and their own subplots...until they get utterly screwed by the storyline because the writers assume noone cares about them(*). The Petrelli/Bennets are main characters (well, not so much Mrs Bennet or Lyle) so when one of them dies, or is even just a bit sad, there's huge long introspective scenes and angsty music and they tend not to stay dead for long, etc. But characters like the twins or the Sanders family are not real main characters, even though they get a fair amount of screentime, and so the writers are happy to kill them off/hurt them etc as a plot device without much thought or fanfare because, well, it's not like anyone cares, they're just minor characters!
