Independently of each other, [ profile] slitherhither and [ profile] accordingtomel both told me that I absolutely must watch the K-drama Flower Boy Next Door. True to their word, it's fantastic. I watched the first six episodes in a single day. So now it's my turn to tell you all that you absolutely must watch the K-drama Flower Boy Next Door.

OTP: Enrique Geum (Yoon Shi Yoon) and Go Dok Mi (Park Shin Hye)

The gist of it is that a reclusive young woman who's hidden herself away from the world due to past psychological trauma slowly gets drawn out when she encounters two neighbors, one who can't leave her alone because he sees through her defenses and wants to help her be courageous, and one who wants to keep protecting her from the big, bad world that hurt her.

Ahjumma, what are you doing? )

I'm just gonna leave this little treasure here for myself, and also for anyone who appreciates flawless human beings:

Harry and Lou

For reasons I can't comprehend, there are some people out in the internetosphere who don't like the alt!universe episodes (I worry about their mental health), but I did some poking around a few comments and forums after 3x18 aired and it seems they are coming around. And for good reason!

Listen, you did a good job, sir. Broyles would be proud. )

Here are a few facts about Lincoln Lee.

Occupation: Fringe Division agent (See also: BAMF)
Face: Perfect
Hair: In defiance of gravity
Personality: Noble; snarky; awesome; unable to keep secrets
Hobbies: Kicking ass and taking names; being my TV boyfriend; setting the bar completely out of reach of normal, non-fictional men

In related news, I may post something more coherent about Fringe 3x18 at a later date and time when my hands are freed up from clutching my heart.

adelagia: (fringe | everybody listen to lincoln)
ANNA TORV, YOU ARE FANTASTIC. Let's just give her all of the awards right now. We'll rename the Emmys after her. No, we'll just dismantle the whole awards system after she wins every available trophy in existence because she is SO GOOD and everything will be meaningless after the Anna Torv Era.

(She's amazing, you guys.)

Wee spoilers for Fringe )

adelagia: (kermit yay)
This post is about [ profile] accordingtomel and me finishing our epic Merlin fic. It will contain CAPSLOCK SQUEE and INCOHERENCE. You've been warned! :D

If you heard something explode today, don't worry, it was only my ovaries. Thanks to [ profile] gealach_ros we can now hear (over and over again) Rupert Young SIIING. Oh man, boys with beautiful voices -- if there's a quicker way to my heart, I have no idea what it could be. RUPERRRT. ♥

Massive effort yesterday to SPRING-CLEAN ALL THE THINGS before Chinese New Year rolls around (it's on Thursday). Dusted, vacuumed, did two loads of laundry, changed the sheets, cleaned the bathroom. Check me out!

Dear Fringe writers,

I ♥ you. Like, a lot.

I'd be hard-pressed to find another show as tightly written as this. The plots, even in the weaker episodes, are always engaging; the characters are wonderfully real, flaws and all (and not to mention incredibly acted all around, especially most recently by Anna Torv); the thinky, sciencey bits enhance rather than bog down the storylines; the continuity -- omg, the continuity -- is aces.

It's clear everything's been meticulously planned out from the get-go; what seem like throwaway lines in one season become major plot points in the next, but never in a way that obstructs or retcons character development. I never have to worry about whether or not an episode will be good because I have every confidence that they'll all be, and in two and a half seasons, I've not been let down yet.

A million thumbs up, you guys.


PS: You probably have everything plotted through the end of S5 by now (may the TV gods see fit to let the show run at least that long), but if there's a way we can keep Lincoln and Charlie on the show forever and ever, kindly make it so.
