Still Here, Yeah
In lieu of at least four unrelated rants (on, in no particular order, a roleplaying thing, a different roleplaying thing, general self-dissatisfaction, and Merlin fandom) I give you:


Francine Peters in the Green Lantern Corps

Sketch by Terry Moore, digicolor by MP. (Background by... frak knows; I think it's a Hubble image.)

Also, the fact that Amy Pond is the bomb-diggety.

It's because she can switch between received pronunciation and Scottish accents, isn't it?

Yes. And not at all because I desire to leap upon her skeletal structure.

... all I could think about while looking at that picture of Francine was, 'oh hey, AU weekend possibility?' *facepalms*

Sadly no (for several reasons, not least of which is she won't be on-island for AU weekend anymore), but man, the options for that... Terry Moore loves drawing his girls in superhero outfits.

I forgot that she won't be on the island anymore. *sad!faces*

Oh wow. He certainly does! They do look good in them, that's for sure. :D

and Merlin fandom

Is Merlin fandom a trainwreck or something? I've only just started watching it, and I'm only about four episodes in. It's very cute. But does something wanky happen that makes the fandom explode with stupidity? I don't care if you spoil me.

Publicly it's pretty sane, but the anonmeme, which I follow like an inveterate scab-picker, makes me despair for humanity most days.

Show-wise.... there's no one huge wanky explosion thing, just steadily groan-worthy lack of continuity, horribly-paced character and relationship development (Arthur and Gwen: *don't notice each other for an entire season, are declaring their affection in ep 2 of season 2*) and a show-runner who thinks Arthur continuing to be conveniently knocked unconscious every time Merlin uses magic, to the point where he seriously must have brain-damage by now, is the most hilarious thing ever, and the heart of the show.

...And I adore the show. Snerk.

(Also, admittedly, my Merlin fandom bitch right now is more "FFS what is wrong with you people who haven't commented on today's reel_merlin fic, sjkdghasjdgh" which is less a fandom issue and more one of beta-reader harumphing.)

Yes, Amy is indeed all that and a plate of fish fingers with custard. This makes the second DW companion that Grim and I react to in exactly the same way (Martha Jones being the first.) Woof.

I like Martha a lot too, but I have to admit a weakness for gingers!

Tell me you saw the preview of the new SiP sketch Terry'll be selling at SDCC this year which means you know what I'm getting as soon as the dealer's room opens . . . ?

I saw him promising it, but I got so tired of watching his twitpic account redirect to twitter user #unresolved after 30 seconds that I gave up refreshing before he actually posted it.

1. *grabbyhands*

2. Terry, remember the streak someday?
a) It's pretty
b) It reminds us that you have some concept of continuity. The tattoo was a nice touch, but vague psychic powers? Ring a beeeelll?

Also GRABBYHANDS at the tumblers. In that way where, uh, I want Terry to post the colorized versions of those scenes that obviously exist?

. . . I think those are the tumblers where you can open them up and take out the paper liner to . . .

Those would be kind of tiny, though.

I STILL WANT THEM. (Yes, the Echo one too.)
