Maybe I should rename my blog "Ramblings of a Night Owl" or something like that because I swear that's all that's on here. Me rambling. That's okay, I guess. I don't need it to be anything else. I created this mostly for fun though also with the intent of posting fan fiction. I haven't written much fanfic recently. I finished writing a Wynonna Earp fic before the new season started and I finished a Mark/Vex story that should probably never see the light of day, but that I had fun writing. I also wrote a bit of a "not-fic" for Stiles and Derek after watching an episode of American Ninja Warrior, but I'm not sure I count that really, and I think I only put it on Tumblr anyway.
I've put on Grimm while I write this. An episode from season five I think. I would watch Midnight Texas episodes again, but I'm still waiting for them to finish downloading on my computer. I have a bit of a backlog. I buy things on my Apple TV, and then six months later I open iTunes on my computer and deal with the onslaught of available downloads. I think I downloaded all the Wynonna Earp episodes already but I know I still have a bunch of Shadowhunters episodes to download before I get to the Midnight Texas episodes. Since I was talking about my ships last night, I started thinking about Nick and Adalind which made me want to watch them again. I've gone back to the episode where Adalind is about to have the baby because, why not? Plus, that's where things start to change for them. Once she has the baby and he decides he wants to be in his kid's life, they start being partners, then friends, and then more.
I worried a lot about whether or not they would eventually get him back with Juliet. One of the episodes that got me the most concerned -- at least in advance -- is the one where the Cupid guy starts effing with the group, and suddenly everyone is in love with the wrong person. I think it was a Valentine's Day episode, but I think Juliet was spelled into being in love with Nick again or something. I can't remember exactly, but I feel like they had a kiss in it and I was anxious.
Towards the end when Juliet started to get her humanity back, where she stopped being so robotic I was sure that they were going to put her and Nick back together. There's an episode or two with them running around together in the alternate universe, and the previews seemed like the two of them might be bonding. And I think they did, but not in the way I was worried might happen.
So here I am, it's almost 11:30 and I really need to go to bed, and I've spent all this time thinking about my ships and not processing the fact that tomorrow is my second to last day at Scholastic and that I only have 16 hours of work there left.
I mean, I'm starting at a library, and I can't begin to imagine what my life is about to be like. I'm going to make new friends and have new experiences and try to learn new things and try to face new challenges and projects, and I'm terrified and overwhelmed, and I wish I could take time off before I start the other job, more than just a weekend but I really can't.
I'm excited and scared and hopeful and worried and sad and happy. It's been a tangle of emotion I haven't been able to sort out the tangle of emotions. I guess I just have to keep trying.
I am exhausted. This week was crazy as hell and today was like busy if it decided to take amphetamines at work. I had one customer who was really upset about some stuff but otherwise the day was really good and I’d rather focus on that. Being busy meant that I was on the phone about the most I’ve been on the phone in a single day since the beginning of the year and I ended up having some really good conversations and that always makes me happy. I was talking to this principal that was enthusiastic and receptive to ideas and that’s just the best in my line of work.
But what I am most excited about is the Grimm season finale. I spent most of it incredibly stressed and VERY UPSET with the writers because HOW COULD THEY DO THIS TO ME???? But then the end was so good and made me happy and I was just so, so pleased. They didn’t let me down! I’ll definitely want to watch the end again though I have no idea how much of the rest of it I can manage because like I said - STRESSFUL. But THE END! Oh gosh. I’m just so very happy about it.
I also watched the season finale of Sleepy Hollow. I don’t know if it will be back after this season. I loved, loved, LOVED Nicole Beharie and I was devastated to see her go but I did end up enjoying several of the new characters they brought in. The plot was a little hokey (more so than the other seasons) but I was shipping the hell out of Jake and Alex and they had such a lovely moment in the finale. They definitely did weird shit with Molly, but I ended up liking it and the way the Witness “mantle” sort of shifted/sort of didn't was interesting to me. The very end when they reveal the next “issue” was, to my mind, a smart move. They didn’t 100% resolve things. Crane’s son is out there and still the Horseman of War but they had a moment which was nice and Crane definitely will have to find a way to get out of his deal with The Devil at some point. But the end had a sense of hopefulness that I don’t think other season finales in the show have had. If the show does come back they have a place to pick up the plot but if they don’t the last episode leaves you hopeful for the future.
In some ways it reminds me of “Gone with the Wind”. So the movie and the book end with Rhett and Scarlett not together but Scarlett is so determined that she's going to get him back that you feel like she is going to figure it out. Scarlett, while not always likable or admirable, is one of the most determined characters in literature. Everything she’s put her mind to in the book thus far she’s pretty much gotten (with the exception, perhaps, of getting to marry Ashley) and you know that she’s going to get Rhett back. That’s how I felt about the Sleepy Hollow finale. Like they conquer whatever was thrown at them.

One Time It Wasn’t Tony’s Fault

I have to say that aside from recent breaks (which I'm surprisingly okay with if only because I've been getting so much writing done) TV Land has been very, very kind to me.
1) Chin/Summer - I realize it was a very, very brief moment between Chin and Summer in the recent episode of The Mentalist, but I squealed my pants off when I watched it. I mean I seriously squee-ed myself. It made me so very happy to see them together.
2) Walter - I love Walter. Walter is well, Walter is Walter. Further, Walter math is never wrong and if you haven't checked it out, I high recommend that you do.
3) In Plain Sight is back for its final season. I'm interested to see how they handle this.
4) Well Ladies and Gents of my mostly imaginary audience, it's happening. That's right, NCIS:LA and H50 are cross-overing (I'm aware that's not a real word, just go with it) with each other.
I can't begin to say how excited I am. Cannot even.
For your enjoyment! Or mine. Whichever.

Dear Lord in Heaven, I don't know what's wrong with me, but I'm not sure I want you to fix it. At this moment in time, I am very much enjoying the insanity I have been blessed with.
Having now caught up on NCIS LA and watched the missing school bus of children episode of Hawaii 5-0, I have a few things to say:
Dear TV Powers that Be,
1) Thigh Holster Porn.
I will forgive that ridiculous look at the end of that show between Lori and Steve (the same look passed between Steve and Kono the last time children were kidnapped and rescued) if you continue to provide me with such wonderful, beautiful men in thigh holsters. I can forgive almost anything for thigh holster action like that.
2) Neither the new Governor nor Lori actually have a personality, and I really don't think I can blame the actors. It seems they have actually been written with no personality.
For shame! This should really be addressed.
3) It may-hap this is wishful thinking, but I'm getting a teeny tiny inkling that just perhaps Kensi's dad is somehow connected to Shelbourne.
Now, I have no idea how the writers, directors, producers, etc would even begin to agree to a plot line interweaving two shows more than a few characters passing through every now and again. I know that I have very much enjoyed the times Warehouse 13 and Eureka have crossed over ("Don't Hate the Player" is one of my all time favorite Warehouse 13 eps though I still don't know why Myka ended up looking like a Dominatrix).
As a fan of both NCIS LA and H50, I think there's a lot of potential for fun there. Plus, anyone who isn't watching the other might get interested if you weaved them a bit more than Kensi doing some lip reading in a scene 90 seconds long as a favor to Joe for Steve.
Come on people, you've already said Steve owe's Sam a steak dinner, let's see it! (Wouldn't THAT be a fun one for the fandoms... but that's another story.)
In conclusion, I have no life except the ones you provide me. Please make them good. (I'm kidding. Kinda.)
