Thus, this precipitates a LOT of discussion between Mommy Duck and my paternal grandmother, Grandma Alien, because of course, I am the eldest cousin of my generation and also, the first born girl. And incidentally, still boyfriend-less and happy to stay that way.
( I think you guys can guess where THIS is going... )
Okay, so between Mommy Duck and Grandma Alien, I guess I should just accept my doom, right? Also, I know, my Imagination is a Hopeless Loon - I'm resigned to that too. :P
She still prefers Original Flavor Five-O, though.
However, we had this conversation:
Mommy Duck: You know, I've figured out why you like this new version of Steve McGarrett.
Me: (blinks) Because he's cute?
Mommy Duck: (looks at the TV screen consideringly) He resembles your father.
Me: (flails) OMG! WHAT. I CAN'T EVEN.
The hilarious thing is that my dear, departed Daddy Alien loved watching TV with me and was terribly entertained whenever he figured out that I'm crushing on the leads. And because he's a bit of a loon himself (gee, I wonder where I get that from....), he'd puff himself up and say, "Didn't you know? I'm <insert name of TV actor here>." And my Mom would laugh and roll her eyes and they'd flirt while I groan and tell him he's being delusional, as per usual.
So yeah, my Dad (who I still miss terribly, especially now) would most likely give me this goofy expression and say, "Didn't you know? I'm Steve McGarrett!"
( Much later.... )
Y'know.... in the Transformers fandom, Ratchet/Wheeljack is a fairly popular slash pairing (yes, Giant Robot Slash, I know, I don't care, it's FUN, okay?).
Ratchet is often portrayed as snarky, sarcastic, hot-tempered and prone to throwing wrenches at the objects of his wrath.
Wheeljack is an ADORKABLE, mad inventor who loves taking risks and making things go BOOM.
These two sound
So, okay, F-List, let me know: DO I WANT TO READ STEVE ROGERS/TONY STARK SLASH? Is this another black hole that I'll fall into.... possibly write for?
Um.... lemme know your answers in my DW journal, kk? I only haz access to DW where I am right now *koffisworkingveryhardkoff*
It really should have ended right there.
Honestly, his buddy Josef already gave him a lot of flak for what he originally did.
“What are you trying to go for here, buddy? Do the whole brooding, heroic, superhero vampire thing? Wait for the little girl to grow up, fall hopelessly in love with her, spend the next few decades moping about like an idiot?”
“Jesus, Josef, no, no and again, no,” Steve had shuddered, feeling sick and outraged at the very idea. “That’s just fucking creepy, man.”
“Oh good,” Josef had said drily. “I’m not too fond of pedophiles either. They’re pretty high on my shit list. Sent a few of them to the La Brea Tar Pits in my time and you know how I am about wasting perfectly good blood.”
“I hear you,” Steve nodded, taking a sip of the A positive Josef was kind enough to offer him. For once, the older vampire didn’t push one of his live Donors on him. It wasn’t as if Steve hadn’t taken him up on the offer before and for all his young age, as Josef kept reminding him, possessed enough finesse to make sure the experience was both enjoyable for him and the young woman who was all too willing to offer a vein.
Yeah. That's the next segment in my Moonlight/H50 fusion. Apparently, my Josef Kostan Muse is a mouthy, opinionated sonuvagun. I'm terrified of what will happen when he meets Danny. HELP!
Seriously, folks, I think the Producers are bound and determined to drive us slash fans crazy. That or have us explode into puddles of squee.
Because, honestly, this spoiler? This is fan fiction they're giving us, folks. REALLY.
( CUT TO AVOID SPOILERS. SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS - TURN BACK NOW OR FOREVER HOLD YOUR PEACE! )
I know that there was a wonderful piece of fan fic about this but can we have more? Please? Pretty Please? Preferably w/ nekkid Danny and Steve?
The Muses seem to be helping me save my sanity at the moment.
Of course, trying to do a Hawaii Five-0/Moonlight/Mina and the Count fusion may suggest otherwise.
So far, this is what I got:
Being a vampire sucked.
Okay, it was a terrible pun and the Vampire knew he probably deserved to be staked for it, because Bad Puns are the Eighth Capital Sin. Truth be told, there were some perks to his situation. There was the fact that he was going to be eternally young, had enhanced senses and was, of course, superhumanly strong and fast. The sun didn’t really faze him – he just tended to get terribly bad migraines if he was stupid enough to be out during the times when the sun was at its height, so he learned to stay in the shade and wear really good sunglasses. Also, he learned that he was better off swimming in the early mornings and late afternoons to early evenings.
If someone tossed holy water on him, he’d just get wet. Crucifixes were okay, if one was into that kind of thing either for religious reasons or just as a fashion accessory. And yes, garlic was tasty on pizza and the Vampire had enough sense to go for mouthwash if he didn’t want to repel his dates.
So what do you think, gang? Run with it? This is beginning to look like the start of a series to me.....
And then I get this:
Forgot where I found this image but I had been squirreling away these things and didn't have the chance to look my files over until today.
Anyhoo. Okay, do NOT want to get all giggly over yet ANOTHER RPS pairing. Because. come on, guys, stop screwing around with us, huh? Have mercy, okay? Isn't it enough that you act SO MARRIED on the show, you have to bring it up in Real Life too?
Sigh. Yeah. I see that Handbasket over there. Hopping into it now. Anyone else joining me?
Someone on my F-list or somebody else's f-list figured out the fruit salad on Steve's dress uniform, which apparently includes a Silver Star. So, come on, LJ & DW - anybody know some fics out there with Smart and Competent Steve? Because, let's face it, he wouldn't have gotten to where he's at if he didn't have brains in that pretty head. And hey, I'm sure that Danny's tastes don't run to tall,dark, pretty and dumb, ok?
I'm shamelessly begging right now because I need something to make me smile as my blood pressure has been shot to hell. Again. Sigh. :(
Oh GOD - I just realized - the song Beautiful Disaster - is Steve to a T. *smacks self upside the head* *knows there is FIC coming from this*
Why, Self? Why?
Which in turn, reminded me of:
Yes. I can go to a place that looks like this. There are a few beaches that are just a couple of hours' drive from Manila that look like THIS and I can get to them. Even if I have to take a freakin' bus to do it. Maybe I ought to drag my Mommy Duck here for her birthday.
It occurs to me that this picture is missing shirtless Alex O'Loughlin and Scott Caan (or Steve McGarrett and Danny Williams). Damn. This is when I'm reminded I live in the Philippines and not Hawai'i. The lack of AOL and Scotty is terrible. Terrible, I tell you.
Woe is me.
