i've been reading a lot of beyond_babylon
stuff the past few days. specifically the "weird period" in b/j's relationship, you know, then brian goes to ny and he and justin make up, yadda yadda, etc. it's my favorite storyline, and pretty much the only one i can remember. it's making me want to read the whole thing over again.
speaking of fic, i read all the entries in qaf_challenges
. i've posted a link to my favorites, in case you want to check them out. the authors were just revealed this evening, so sorry, no anonymity for you. ( under ze cut )
you know what's kind of crazy? i saw gale's episode of law and order: svu before i even knew who he was. when i watched it purposely, to look for him, about halfway through i realized i'd already seen that episode before. it's funny i didn't remember, because surely i would have noticed the most attractive man i'd ever seen staring back at me from my tv screen. although, gale did look...different, in that episode. not really like himself, and it's not just the glasses. his hair was kind of, no thank you. doesn't stop me from wanting to watch it, though.
okay, something that really irritates me, is people who say that cowlip got it wrong, and they read fic that "fixes" what happened on the show. specifically, the finale. i don't get how people can say that what happened on the show is wrong. it can't be wrong, it's cannon! the writers, the people who created the show, are the ones who decided what should happen; it's not possible that they got it wrong. it's their creation; there is no right or wrong, you know? it is what it is. i mean, i can understand why people would say that, if they're unhappy with the ending or find it somehow inappropriate, but still. it's not a test; it's not like brian and justin's relationship was supposed to achieve a certain level and cl failed to get them there. cl (or the other writers, but cl have the final say) decide what happens, and then it happens. um, i don't mean to offend anyone. anyway.
