it's written on the wind, it's everywhere I go.  

I've never done this thing before but I've been having so much fun writing for other people! And this is the season for ~love, so who am I to question the status quo? :D Besides, I've had a no good, terrible, very bad day, so I'm a bit loooove, love me do, atm.



                  Holiday Love Meme

"'Tis the season to make a million memes to let everyone know just how much you appreciate them and love them. Comment with your username and people will comment anonymously with things they love and cherish about you. Stay anonymous simply because it makes the atmosphere lighter and more mysterious, kind of like a Secret Santa only with love and holiday cheer! People will wonder who these caring people are and appreciate the fact that they exist, not only the fact that they may be best friends with them. "

And here be my thread :D

Also, on Buffy (I HAVE BUFFY THOUGHTS, WHAT? \m/), the oddest thing happened; I saw two versions of the Pilot without realizing it. :s And since it was my first venture into Buffy, I had absolutely no idea what was going on! Although the first version had a lot of scenes similar to the second, it was actually completely different. They had different Willows, for one! And I spent a good part of the first version wondering 'but waaaaaait, wasn't Alyson Hannigan playing Willow in Buffy? HAVE I BEEN SEEING THINGS ALL THIS WHILE?' The Principal was different as well; initially it was that teacher from Glee first season whom Rachel got kicked out on harassment charges. And the entire episode was like a parody of itself; there were lots of impossible stunts, and the vampires didn't explode into dust, they left human shapes behind, Buffy kicked everyone and there was no Jesse at all. Willow was mostly sad and alone a good percent of the time, while Xander barely talked to Buffy and didn't fall all over himself, and the entire episode was twenty-five minutes long. The second version (which, I think is canonical), was SO MUCH BETTER. Buffy was way more understated and awesome and actually herself got kicked around a bit. Alyson's Willow wins ALL THE AWARDS for adding so much cheerful adorkableness to a character who could've been played as a total depressed and emo drag, as that actress from the first version showed. ALL HAIL THE CANON PILOT which cements the awesomeness like that other one so did not, Joss knows his stuff obviously.

I AM LOVING IT (McDonald's, you're welcome), BRB.

No, totally rationally.

It's great fun.

ALSO I HOPE YOUR DAY IS SO MUCH BETTER! ILY.

OMG, THAT GIF IS THE CUTEST. PAUL WESLEY AND HIS ADORABLENESS WILL BE THE DEATH OF ME. And you too are so ridiculously adorable (and Paul thinks so too, see):



Hee, I've heard so much about Buffy, it's insane!! And not even only through my flist or anything, but loads of media critics and everyone seems to worship it and I NEED to know what it's about and would I have been better off watching it when I was ^^

Also, I am behind on your fic! D: !!

I am sorry, I've been super busy.

BUT! I will try and pile them all up and post in a big chunk when I get home tonight. :)
Hopefully.

I, EVEN WORSELY (that's totally a word) AM BEHIND ON REVIEWING. And oh my god, you've gotten the most fics out, trust me; and I can't believe I have more fic left, OMG. YOU MAKE ME SO HAPPY, YOU KNOW THAT?

Also, also, I just realized this; all those fics are locked. I red-ed them all over at my last post, you cannot keep all your awesomeness from the world which needs it DD: Unlock them, pretty please!

lolol, I have seen that un-canon pilot. Although, not until years after the show ended, so I was fully aware of how ridiculous the whole ordeal was. Thank goodness they fixed it up and made it awesome instead.
youcallitwinter: just to waste my time with you.youcallitwinter on December 12th, 2011 05:24 pm (UTC)
LOL, you've seen it too? That was the very first episode of Buffy I ever saw, and I was all 'er, is it supposed to be a parody of itself?' (I've heard such amazing things about the show that everything they do will be analyzed x1000 by me, haha).
(Deleted comment)
youcallitwinter: just to waste my time with you.youcallitwinter on December 12th, 2011 05:32 pm (UTC)
That was the first episode of Buffy that I ever saw and I'm all 'hmm, I can see the appeal. Sort of". The Willow was REALLY not good (or maybe she was okay, and Alyson just overshadowed her?) and I was all 'what, do they change her mid-season or something?' because I'd seen Alyson on everyone's icons, lol. But you're right, her ~earnestness is what draws me in <33 I'm watching this show fairly late so there's a lot of technological stuff that's changed; like the scenes and vampire faces are all so well developed now that you do keep realizing you're watching something old; they also haven't mentioned the word 'sex' till now while talking about it, haha, and some of the slang phrases are before my time, but it's so much fun!

You're the second person in two days to saw that about Season Two!! Now I'm really excited to see it :DD

Alyson is the best! The other Willow is just...ugh no! I'm so glad you like Btvs! One more thing to chat for with you!!!!♥
youcallitwinter: just to waste my time with you.youcallitwinter on December 12th, 2011 06:36 pm (UTC)
Ooh, you saw that too? :D Their interpretations of the character were so different, but Alyson wins all the points for adding innocence and pathos to what could've been a very one-dimensional character! YES, LOTS OF BUFFY CHAT. I SHALL WATCH MORE AND I NEED ALL THE FANDOM THOUGHTS ♥♥♥

you get to watch Buffy for the first time I AM JEALOUS! IT'S SO GOOD. And S2 is my favorite season of television, full stop, you're really in for a treat.
youcallitwinter: just to waste my time with you.youcallitwinter on December 12th, 2011 06:37 pm (UTC)
Oh, I know the feeling, it's like when someone tells me they're going to read Harry Potter for the first time :DD OKAY, YOU ARE THE THIRD PERSON TO TALK ABOUT SEASON TWO, OMG, NOW I AM IMPATIENTLY EXCITED.

I have Billy Mack LOCKED in my head now, thank you very much (but thank you, because I love it).

I didn't even know there was an alternative pilot of Buffy! Seems wrong somehow. But like everyone else, I am so curious to hear what you think of the show. I have a complicated relationship with Buffy. On the one hand, I loved it beyond reason, but on the other hand, I will NEVER forgive some of the things it did. #trauma, I has it

BUT MORE TALK OF VAMPIRES WITH YOU CAN NEVER BE WRONG.

*so if you really love me, come on and let it snooooooooooooooooooow* (this will be in my head ALL DAY.)

HAHAHAHA. Look into my eeeeeyes, now you shall sing this song throughout the holiday seeeeeeason:



/hypnosis

Lol, but it does inevitably tend to happen every holiday season because everyone invariably watches Love Actually (but seriously, Hugh Grant in 10 Downing Street, how can we not watch it, y'know?) during it. :D

I didn't even know there was an alternative pilot of Buffy! Seems wrong somehow.

It was the first Buffy thing I ever saw and I was all 'um, okay, I get the appeal. I really do. Is there something wrong with me and my ability to appreciate cult classics today'.

OH MY GOD, I'VE HEARD SO MUCH ABOUT THIS SHOW AND ITS FABULOUSNESS. I cannot wait to see how a show that refuses to use the word 'sex' (or even 'doing it') traumatized someone. :D

BUT YES, VAMPIRES FTW. SUDDENLY I'M ALL FOR THEM.

*I feel it in my fingers, I feeeeel it in my toooooes*

BUFFY <333 MY FIRST EVERYTHING. My inner 12-year-old girl will never be over this show.

lol the original pilot. I think I did have the misfortune of catching it a few years after the series ended? TERRIBLE. YOU ARE CORRECT. Sometimes the internet does not bring good things into our lives.

It must be so weird watching S1 in 2011-almost-2012 though. I mean even at the time the special effects were terrible lol. The show's budget visibly increases over time but I'm sometimes skeptical S1 could draw in many people without the residual fondness for the show. THE CHEESY MUSIC ALONE. SO EMBARRASSING. :|
youcallitwinter: just to waste my time with you.youcallitwinter on December 12th, 2011 07:43 pm (UTC)
NOW THAT EVERYONE SEEMS TO HAVE BEEN TWELVE WHILE WATCHING IT FOR THE FIRST TIME, WHAT ARE MY LIFE CHOICES EVEN?

Haha, at least you saw it after; it was the first thing I saw and I was fully prepared to praise it and be all "no, I'm not stupid you guys, I can totally, like, appreciate cult classics and stuff".

It must be so weird watching S1 in 2011-almost-2012 though. I mean even at the time the special effects were terrible lol.

YOU ARE SO INSIGHTFUL AND YOU GET THINGS AND I LOVE YOU OKAY. Seriously, this is the biggest hurdle (I'm a 90's child, I'm used to fancy) in watching because the vampire masks and everything are so dated now? Special effects and technology have grown exponentially, so it's obvious while watching. But the first season is so much fun, I don't mind. I've heard the growth arcs are insane (and everyone stans for the second season for some reason which I must soon discover!) but I quite enjoy Buffy loving being the chosen one while also hating it for messing with her 'social life'. I know shit's gonna get real so might as well enjoy the fun :D

OMG, I'm so glad you're watching Buffy! I can't wait to see all your thoughts :D.

My favorite season is s6 ;). I enjoyed s2 very much, but the late seasons were the ones to steal my heart. It's more a question of personal preferences than quality; s6 uses some of my favorite narratives, I can't resist it.

Oh, I'm REALLY glad to hear that :D Because as much as I can't wait for the second season and it's apparent epicness, I am also like 'but, er, guys, what about the five seasons after that. WHY IS NO ONE TALKING ABOUT THEM? SHOULD I WATCH IT ALL OR IS THE SECOND SEASON THE ULTIMATE PEAK AND THEN DOWNHILL?' So to hear that you like the 6th makes me happy because now I have even more stuff to look forward to :D (and we like the same kind of narratives so omgomgomg).

OH MY GOD YOU'RE A BUFFY VIRGIN. have you been spoiled at all? if you haven't YOU LUCKY DUCK, IT'S GOING TO EXPLODE YOUR BRAIN.

i actually liked original!willow, and i was really sad that they changed her, while simultaneously being not sad, because alyson is incredible. but like many people, i didn't see the original pilot until years after i'd discovered the show, and in retrospect, willow could've been an incredibly different but still amazing character. and i was actually really bummed that even in 1997, not that long ago really, it was Not Allowed to have a main character that wasn't stick thin skinny.

season two is brilliant. and if you have not been spoiled at all, holy shit, it's going to kick your ass. WATCH IT BECAUSE WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT IT.

but my favorite beyond favorite is season six. it's so dark and painful and creepy and amazing. just, holy shit, it's gonna blow your mind.

ALSO, THERE IS A SPIN-OFF, AND SINCE ANGEL: THE SERIES WAS MY FIRST FANDOM, I AM OBLIGED TO TELL YOU TO WATCH IT, TOO. it's so fucked up. you're gonna love it.
youcallitwinter: just to waste my time with you.youcallitwinter on December 14th, 2011 03:24 pm (UTC)
OH MY GOD YOU'RE A BUFFY VIRGIN.

I KNOW, RIGHT? It seems to be one of those things where everyone's like 'WHAT WAS YOUR CHILDHOOD EVEN?'

Have you been spoiled at all?

Very, very arbitrarily, being in a fandom related to vampires and everything. I just know a little about various characters who haven't appeared yet and odd bits of information; I know Dawn's 'the key' but I don't know what the key is (I know Dawn exists but I have no idea why she isn't on the show since she's Buffy's sister, I think, and it seems as if it's just Buffy and her mother!), I know Spike invents a Buffy bot or something, I know Tara and Willow have a thing (but I don't know who Tara is), I know somebody called Druscilla exists and is a vampire but nothing beyond that. Lol.

I love Alyson's Willow, but it just sucks to know that the network has the other girl removed because of weight issues. WHAT EVEN? D:

My downloads keep hanging and stopping and I'm SO MAD because I'm dying to watch S2 after practically everyone having mentioned it!!

THERE'S A SPIN-OFF OF BUFFY? (And about Angel?!) I HAD NO IDEA, OMG, NOW I HAVE SO MUCH TO WATCH \O/

it's so fucked up. you're gonna love it.

You know me well, yes. :D
