Fucking dwarves. Seriously, I should have expected it. LotR did not make me super fannish, despite the fact that I loved the books (and Aragorn, and Eowyn and Faramir ...), probably because the elves just didn't do it for me and from afar it always seemed to me that the fandom was hardcore about elves. The only thing I shipped was Legolas/Gimli, but when I mentioned that once the reaction was pretty much "gross". So of course now I am ridiculously invested in these dwarves. My favourites die in the end. I didn't like the book. I don't have time for it, but still, I am rapidly sliding down the rabbit hole no matter how much I try to stop it. Before I disappear completely, my Yuletide recs of 2012:

18 fics in Being Human, City Hunter (Kdrama), Elementary, Gargoyles, Homeland, Kings, Le Pacte de Loups, Lost Girl, Pushing Daisies, Rome, Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi, Sharpe, Sky High, Sungkyunkwan Scandal, The Hour, Warehouse 13, Young Avengers )

☞ I'm sick. I'm a terrible sick person. I'm as whiny as a stereotypical man, only I get way more clingy. So I try to compensate by writing an entry.

☞ My entry for [community profile] parallelsfic: The Taming of a Crazy Horse (2278 words, fandom: Sungkyunkwan Scandal, pairing: Yong Ha/Jae Shin. I'll repost it once I get around to sorting the epic amount of screencaps I took during the rewatch.

☞ Another series you should definitely be watching is Teen Wolf. You didn't see that one coming, I bet. But seriously, it's good entertainment. Not necessarily intelligent entertainment, but good anyway. It's also definitely a series for girls. There's just no other reason for featuring so many half-naked men. Apart from that: the series plays with your espectations (Lydia!), there's a star-crossed romance, the dumbest main character ever (which is awesome, I promise), a best friend with ADD (<3 Stiles) and decent horror and humour.

And now I'll crawl back into bed and curl up with Ghost Story. Or maybe I'll watch Personal Preference instead. Way too many choices.

So, I’ve been watching dorama again. This isn’t the first time, but this time I’ve actually managed to finish more than one series because I didn’t have to rely on my ex-flatmate to supply me with new material. She always gave up on everything after the first couple of episodes. Memory like a goldfish, attention span of a fly.

Anyway, after a few tries, I found out what I disliked about the dorama that I watched a few years ago. Many have love triangles or – if the authors feel like it – love dodecahedrons, and for some reason I almost always dislike the main guy that eventually ends up getting the girl. The second male lead is nice, far more attractive and really awesome, while the male main character is an asshole that treats the female main character like shit. Yeah, not so much my thing. Some series can make it work for me, but most can’t. I don’t think I’m the only one with this problem, so here are a few dorama recs from me:

Coffee Prince, Hong Gil Dong, Powerful Opponents, Strongest Chil Woo, Sungkyunkwan Scandal )
