So after watching all of Due South again and reading DS slash for the last few nights, I am obsessed with Callum Keith Rennie.

See, I have phases where I am completely obsessed with one guy or another. Or a pairing. Or a show. Or whatever.

I had some pretty bad Duncan/Methos phases, where all I could think was Methosmethosmethoskronosmethosduncanmethos (some of you migth remember). I have a Harry Potter obsession about once a year or so, where I don't sleep and read HP all night instead (why are there no short stories in that fandom anyway?). I sometimes obsess about Chris Kane so much it hurts, and let's not mention the time when I went crazy about Daniel Craig's James Bond - granted, it was only a day, but I swear I would have died if I hadn't gotten to watch his James Bond movie RIGHT.THEN. (now I can't even remember the title, which is just another part of the problem. Oh, Casino Royal, I remember.)

Actually, I don't quite forget about my obsession when they are over, the just, step back a little to make room for new obsessions. I still love them though. And anyways, they keep coming back, I'm just always surprised about the vehemence they keep coming back with. I mean, there you are, thinking you are finally over someone, and then, wham!, it's all coming back. One smile and my knees get all weak, when the day before I wasn't even thinking about you.

Needless to say, I own many many DVDs, because when I'm in an obsessive phase, buying DVDs makes me feel better.

So, Callum Keith Rennie it is for now. I had a bad CKR phase a couple of years ago and bought/watched most of his (bigger) movies back then. However, I'm certain he must have been in something phenomenal that I haven't seen yet, and I suspect some of you (yes, I'm looking at you <lj user="malnpudl") are eager to tell me. Please? Also, if anyone would have a copy of CKR in "Bliss", I would be very grateful. Very. *nods head* Now let's see if I can get back to work somehow without getting distracted by the pictures in my head too much.

I thought I'd just give you all a quick update about what I'm doing instead of sleeping.

Finished Due South (sad, so sad. Not the end of the show, just that it's the end of the show.). Decided to spend the rest of the night reading DS slash. Actually, decided to be reasonable for once and read DS slash only until midnight.

Didn't work out.

Numb3rs had one of the weakest season openers ever. On the other hand Spoiler for Numb3rs season opener )

The fic descriptions on [livejournal.com profile] ncisficfind make me cry. And cry. And cry.

It's not that I'm not used to people trying to find badfic, hell, I've tried to find badfic before, it's the absurdness that makes it memorable, and therefore searchable. No, I cry because the descriptions you read on that community? That's what qualifies as good fic in this fandom! Take this, for example, and the tell me you don't feel like scraping out your brain with a spoon.

Welcome to my world.

On the other hand Spoiler for NCIS 6x02 )

I'm still watching Due South. I have reached season 3 and I'm all squeeing over Ray K. while at the same time missing Ray Vecchio terribly. I LOVED Ray Vecchio. To understand what the change from one Ray to the other feels like to me, you have to know my history with Due South, but, breakfast calls, and there will be Due South for breakfast! Yay, more Ray K.!

And then, when I'm finished with season 3, I think I shall have to start watching Supernatural all over again. Because if that show isn't the best show ever (in the last, oh, ten years or so) I don't know what it is. Okay, the first few episodes still sucked in a big sucky, bad B-movie kind of suckiness, but now it's just brilliant. I will rewatch and tell you the exact moment when it turned brilliant, if I can. Maybe.

Mmm, tea and Due South!

I was going to write a long essay about why I perceive Ray Vecchio as a man (and I like men. Oh, do I ever like men.), but Fraser, mostly, as a Mountie, or as Fraser, or as whatever, but not as someone who is first thing male, and second thing a mountie. Ray=1.male, 2. cop, 3. italian, all adding up to a delicious mixture IMHO.

But then I decided to spend the evening reading Fraser/Ray K. slash instead (because I'm a pretty exclusive Fraser/Ray K. girl), because apparently, it takes Fraser having sex with another man to make me feel that he is a man.

I'd elaborate, but I'm still in the middle of a story...

Hope you had a nice evening, too.:-)

P.S.: (*looks at icon*) I'm not saying he isn't attractive, though.
Nope, so not saying that.
Someone write me Dean/Fraser slash and I might just explode from all the prettiness. I don't think my brain could handle that kind of hotness. (but I'm perfectly willing to try.)

I'm still in the middle of rewatching season 1, and I wrote up this whole post about Fraser being so human that he almost seems frail sometimes and why I am completely in love with Ray Veccio. It was going to end up in a little personal why I ship him with Ray K but not Ray V. (and it's not only because I'm jealous). Then the Blackberry crashed and the post was gone.

For now, all I can say is that I am completely convinced Fraser slept with Smithbauer in The Thin Blue Line. That scene where he gives him the cards, when Smithbauer slaps his shoulder and then puts his hand to Fraser's neck says everything.

Watching Due South makes me very very happy right now.

(although I will take a break and catch up on OMGSupernatural sometime today. Spoil me and you are dead.)

When I'm not spending time with the horse (OMG HORSE!!!), I watch Due South. Oh, the Ray love! I just want to jump him sometimes. I'm talking about Ray V., since I just started (and it's been years since I last watched DS, it's so good to see it again). I want to jump Ray K., too, but Fraser was there before me. Damn it.

How's everyone else doing? Anything worth knowing going on, or are you all too caught up in summer and politics to be fannish?

Stolen from many people.

Sum up your former/current fandoms in a few sentences, as if they were human beings. Then let others guess "who" you're writing to.

1) You were my first relationship, well, the first "serious" one. In the beginning, I was only curious about you, but the more I found out, the deeper I fell in love. And what a love it was: I thought about you all day, talked about you, tried everything one could think of with you. I couldn't imagine ever loving anyone else. That was then, and times have changed. We don't see each other anymore, I can honestly say that I'm over you. But sometimes, out of the blue, I am reminded of you, and in these moments I can still feel traces of our love.
= Buffy, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] lunardreamed and [livejournal.com profile] webbgirl
Yes, I've only been in fandom five years (though I've been a fan longer), and it was Buffy who introduced me to fanfic, slash and fandom.

2) You were my shiny new love, you were MADE for me and I was crazy about you from the very first moment I laid eyes on you. Then they took you from me, sudden and much too soon. My wounds are fresh, and losing you still makes me cry.
= Smith, as guessed by [livejournal.com profile] ana_grrl.
I never knew it was possible to fall so hard so fast, and get your heart broken in almost the same moment.

3) I love you, I am in love with you. You have some strange ideas, and at the beginning, because of my past experiences, I didn't fully trust you. But even when you did things that I would have left anyone else for, you never disappointed me. Everything about you is perfect and I would marry you, if it wasn't for your friends, who are mostly lunatics.
= NCIS, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] webbgirl.
With Kate gone, Madam Director and the pornstache, you'd think I'd be far gone, but I've learned to trust the love so I stick around. I just wish the fanfic were better.

4) We had a long and rather intense affair, but there are only a few really memorable moments. Your charms are so obvious and yet there is so much more behind your pretty surface, so much that I cannot stop thinking about even now, after we have moved apart. I can't believe some of the things you made me do!We may have moved apart and don't see each other much anymore, but when we do, the love and passion between us is still as hot as it was before.
= Highlander, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] lunardreamed
The few memorable moments are the Methos episodes, almost the only ones I keep coming back to. And the things HL made me do? Well, I fell for a guy who's wearing shoulder thingies and red(!) pants and then lends them to his boyfriend. Among other unspeakable fashion sins. Oh, Duncan, I love you, and I'm still waiting for the night in Paris where you take me out for dinner and dancing. Sweet sweet dreams...

5) You are an affair that I'm almost a bit ashamed of. Or rather, I feel I should be, but I feel so much for you that I can't. We were always more about the sex than about every day life. I don't call you anymore, but when we meet each other on the street, I always feel like coming home.
=The Sentinel, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] webbgirl
I love it. I know it's not a good show, and I try not to mention that I've watched all its episodes more than once in certain company. But watching Jim and Blair play House never fails to make me happy.

6) You were my childhood friend, an innocent love long before I knew what relationships were all about. When we met years later, we tumbled into bed as if it were always meant to be. I still think you are wonderful and I love remembering you, but if we are honest with each other, we were never meant to last.
= Due South
When I watched Due South for the first time, I was young and innocent and had no slashy thoughts at all. Okay, I may have had some innocent dreams about a certain mountie, but really really innocent. Then, after I had discovered slash, it took a while until I thought, hey, there could be Due South slash. Let's check it out. RayV/Fraser never worked for me, too innocent my relationship with them. Ray K I got to know only then, and we got a long really well, but somehow we always lived in different worlds and I never really found my way into the fandom.

7) I'm a bit afraid of you. You are kinky and dark and so complex, I'm afraid I'll get lost in you, eaten up by the crazy people you hang out with, drawn into your world of twilight and mystery. But I cannot resist you completely, so I keep coming back for little or long tastes, that leave me feeling good and sated, and a little bit dirty and guilty.
= Harry Potter
I like my Harry Potter dark. I don't think there's any fandom where I've read more dark fics, end of the world, good against bad with the bad winning so often. Kink, too, but I read a lot of that in XF as well. I've seen a lot of crazy people in HP, seriously crazy, so I stayed in my not-so-little Harry/Snape corner, where I like to take long (so many HP epics!) holidays from time to time, until I get scared off by yet another WIP that isn't finished after four years.

8) You are it. The one and only. I never get tired of you, even though there are some sides that I chose to ignore and won't take a second look at. You are not even perfect, far from it, but if I had to decide, it'd be you, only you, for the rest of my life. Oh, who am I trying to kid, I am already married to you. I love you.
= Stargate, as guessed by [livejournal.com profile] ana_grrl.
Oh, come on, who else am I married to?

9) We started out as friends and we still haven't progressed far. We made out a couple of times, but we both know it wasn't perfect. We also know that the moment will come, if we just keep trying. Meanwhile, I'm falling for you more and more every time we meet.
= Numb3rs, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] webbgirl
The show keeps getting better and better, but I still haven't found much fanfic that interests me. We will keep trying, though. ;-)

10) You are the partner my parents never wanted me to have. You stand for everything I am against, and still I know that I cannot resist you. Why am I so easy when it comes to you? Why am I so forgiving? Because underneath your macho-tough guy attitude, you are smart and charming and very sexy. You are too occupied with yourself to sleep with me, but I don't mind. I just like watching you and being around you. And dreaming about having sex with you.
= The Unit, or The Bob! Show, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] webbgirl
I don't sleep with the Unit= I don't read fanfic (I don't think there is much fanfic for the Bob! show). I'm happy with just watching the show and making up my own little stories in my head.
I am a big Due South fan. It's one of the few shows I was a fan of before I even knew about fandom.

I discovered slash, somehow got hold of all the episodes, watched them, read slash, watched them again, read more slash etc. I think I must have read every story at DueSlash at one point. I loved iFraser and Ray. Both Rays.

Then other fandoms came and lured me away (first The Sentinel, then Stargate), and I hardly read any DS fic anymore. And now, when I find the time to read DS slash, I feel as if I have missed something! It's like reading in a fandom where you don't know all the episodes, so you can never be sure if you get all the references and jokes. Which is ridiculous, because I've seen ever DS episode at least three times.

I think it has something to do with the fact that DS fandom is so tight. Everyone seems to know everyone else and they all read each others stories (at least that what it seems like). To me, as an outsider, it seems as if the fandom has developed its own canon when it comes to Fraser and Ray, so with every story I miss, I miss a piece of canon.

I wish I had the time to be involved in that wonderful fandom.

...was the subject of today's best spam. For a moment, I thought it was one of you guys sending me pics of naked Ben Browder.

Lately, I haven't felt very...very what? That's the problem really, I don't feel like anything. I don't want to go out, I don't want to talk to people, I don't feel like I have anything to post about. Then it occured to me that I didnt have any actualy work in the last days, so now I'm sitting here, trying to work on a file, and, surprise! I feel like procrastinating posting.

Not that I have anything to post about, since I haven't been doing much. Well, I went out a lot, but my private life is so boring that I'ms ure no one wants to hear about it.
So, why don't I give you an update on my current fannish obsessions, and what I'm doing with them?

A trip through the unhealthy amount of fandoms [livejournal.com profile] oceana_ is currently spending more or less time in:

Let's start with Stargate... )


CSI Miami )

Due South )

Harry Potter )

The Sentinel )

X-Files )

Buffy/Angel )

Hard Core Logo )

Andromeda )

Queer as Folk US )

I guess I'll have to continue this in part 2.

I watched two Due South episodes today, and one Stargate ep. I read Harry Potter slash. I read Jack/Daniel slash. I read Fraser/Kowalski slash.
God! I love Saturdays!

I also ate too much pasta, drank red wine and had ice cream for dessert, but I guess you didn't want to know that. Though it did make my day even better.

However, the surprise is something different: I've got myself a recommendations journal! Yes, surprise, surprise, everyone has got one, I know, but I just couldn't resist!
At the moment, I am surprised myself, partly by how few stories of the many I read I actually want to rec, but mainly how Harry Potter, the little bugger, seems to invade my time and my brandnew recs LJ. Alright, it's not so brandnew anymore, but I didn't want to announce it before, because I didn't have any time to update it.
Also, it is ugly at the moment, and I don't have an icon yet. But what do you expect from the girl who hasn't fixed her mood theme since it broke almost six weeks ago...
Anyway, that's it,my surprise. Oh, I should tell you where to find it, probably:
Oceana's Slash Recommendations
"For crying out loud!" Jack shouted as he began to pout. He looked over at Carter and continued, "How did you know that they would win? I mean the Yankees had the pitching. I mean I know your smart, but they have Mike Mussina for crying out loud!"

If that's the first sentence of your fic, do you really expect me to read the rest?

In other news: I just watched "We are the eggmen" (Due South, for those of you who do not know.)
I love Ray Vecchio. Absolutely love him. How could I forget how much I love him?
Now I am searching for some good Ray Veccion fic.
Every pairing, slash, het, gen, G or NC-17, I don't care.
I just want to read some good Ray Vecchio fic.
You know, the Ray who talks to his car, fights with his sister, who gets this cute warm smile when he meets old girlfriends, and that proud smile when he introduces Ben to "old family friends". That Ray.

Recs, anyone?
