12:06 am - I'm Just Like You, So Leave Me Alone
Good news: Veronica Mars got a full season!

Bad news: The full season is only 20 episodes!

Er. Modified rapture!

So, look, I've been wanting to do that fandom meme where you write about your fandoms as if they were lovers or friends or whatever, and, well, I'm just not good enough. I'm not creative enough to match what I've been seeing. And I probably haven't interacted with texts in interesting enough ways, and I don't get obscenely bitter because I generally just like everything or tolerate it, so they wouldn't be much fun anyway, right?

So instead, I'm doing limericks. Guess away.

1. You were full of conspir'cy and mystery.
You and I've got so much history.
But you lost all reason
And I skipped your last season,
Though the finale left me blistery.

2. I thought you were only for kids.
But my friends would not shut their damn lids.
I've bent to their will,
And you're bending me still,
For I'm seeking out awful fanvids.

3. The newspaper told me to watch.
In my bedpost, you'd be the first notch.
You changed my TV
With cheeses skeevy:
I love you from head to my crotch.

4. I always watched you with friends,
So alone, quirk and charm depends
On the family dynamics
(Gen'rat'nal pan'ramics).
I'll stay with you till it ends.

5. You filled the hole in my heart,
But all I received was a start.
The total thirteen
Showed what could have been.
My teddy bear doesn't quote Sartre.

6. You remind me of my very first dates:
Ice and fire and some sewer grates.
I watched for a blonde
But stayed for a bond
Between blood-related best mates.

7. Dark and epic and broody,
You were nothing but moody.
Atonement for sins
Means nobody wins,
But you fight because that is your duty.

8. I've loved you in good times and bad
Because I do think you are rad.
You've changed my life
And given me strife,
But for you I will always be glad.

9. I thought you were okay at first,
But my love came at a time cursed.
Before I could say, "Hey!"
You were snatched away.
I hope those folks suffer the worst.

10. Everyone lauded your quality
Despite your lack of frivolity.
I admit you're amazing
With morals ablazing,
But could we have some ethical jollity?
Current Mood: annoyedannoyed
Current Music: Pitchshifter - Genius

I don't watch Supernatural and somehow I didn't think you did either, but 6 seems very Supernatural-esque. And for the remaining two I'll say 5 is Wonderfalls and 9 is Firefly. I'm kind of cheating because I totally thought 5 was Firefly at first.

Yay for the pickup! But 20 episodes means the final arc will be what, five episodes? I already found it odd that the arcs were getting shorter and shorter; it seems like the last one should be the longest to build to a really intense finale.

Correct! I just started watching.

Number 5 is WF, and number 9 is FF. Good job.

I think the final arc is now...four episodes. I'm not sure how they'll rework things.

Trying to post this without seeing other people's comments. :D

1. Only guessing here, but Alias?

2. Avatar! You've almost got me convinced to watch it, but it's your fault that I'm totally hooked on VM and S60, so I'm trying to resist. :D (You pick good tv)

3. I have absolutely no idea, but this is my favorite limerick. :D And after typing out a few more, and further consideration, is this Buffy?

4. Gilmore Girls?

5. Dunno

6. Dunno

7. Angel?

8. Dunno

9. Dunno.

10. Battlestar?

See all those silly question marks? I need to learn to be more sure of myself. I suspect that either 5 or 9 are Firefly, but I wouldn't know which.

1. Nope!
2. Yep! And hee, RESISTANCE IS FUTILE.
3. Hee. And yes.
4. Yep!
7. Yes.
10. Yes!

One of them is. Really, the best way to figure out which one it is is to figure out which one it isn't.

All right except for 4, 7, and 10!

It's funny how some of them do seem to work well enough for other shows, a bit.

I feel like 6 is VMars. But I'm not sure.

But I like your limericks. Rock it.

I'm not going to go through the motions of guessing because I've already seen some of the comments, but I just had to say: "Gen'rat'nal pan'ramics"? You are SO FIRED, Sunil. That hurts my soul.

Heh.

I didn't look at anyone else's answers, so if these have already been figured out, I apologize.

1. X Files. I skipped most of the last season, too. I recorded the finale, but never watched it.
3. I'm going to guess Buffy. Because Buffy? She likes cheese.
4. Gilmore Girls. The quirk and multiple generations gives it away.
5. Wonderfalls? Everyone seemed to love that show and I know there was a limited supply.
6. Supernatural. Surprisingly, I didn't get it right away. But when I think blondes and sewer grates, I think Buffy, not Jo.
7. Angel? Nobody's dark and broody and full of atonement like Angel.
8. Veronica Mars?
9. I want to say Felicity, since they were all about the "hey," but it could just as easily be Everwood. However, I don't think you watched either of those shows. Which is a darned shame, really.
10. BSG? I don't watch that show, so I have no idea if everyone is all moral and shit.

Oh, and in case it wasn't obvious, I had absolutely no idea on #2. Apparently it's Avatar, which explains why I didn't recognize it.

Now that I'm cheating, I'm gonna say "duh" to myself about #1 and #7.

Let's see.

1. X-Files (I skipped the last season too.)
2. AVATAR!
3. Buffy
4. Gilmore Girls
5. Wonderfalls
6. Supernatural
7. Angel
8. Veronica Mars
9. Firefly? I'm just assuming that it has to be on there.
10. Battlestar Gallactica

I kind of don't know how to feel about the 20 episodes. I mean, yay? But would two more have killed them? And what the hell does this do to the arcs? We know, pretty much, that this is the last season, so I'm kind of annoyed at the writers having to wrap up two mysteries and all the relationship stuff in a shorter time frame than usual. I know, I should just be happy that it's not ending at 13 or 16.

Well, I already read the comments so I know the answers to your limericks. Damn my spoiler ways! Lovely limericks though. But I did guess Buffy and VM correctly right off the bat.

And WOO for 20 episodes! I added that news tidbit to WVM.net. *dances*

20 is fine! Especially if it means they can work harder on each one and not be quite so exhausted at the end. At 15 or so, I might start having problems with their definition of "full season", but 20? That's A-okay.

Much as I'm sure the answer is 'no,' is there any semi-reasonable possibility of VM getting the last two come the upcoming month or so?

No idea. And if they get the last two, I hope they come before everything gets reworked too heavily so they can easily revert to the original plan.

Oh, you're watching Supernatural?? I just watched it for the first time last night. I like it. Dean is pretty.

Heh, you WOULD like it for that. I liked it for the hot demon. And, you know, the other stuff. It's very XF-ish, and I really like how well researched it is with the urban legends and whatnot.

I started watching this season because my flist loved it, and Alona Tal was going to be on it. I'm going to watch the first season soon to catch up.
