She cut off the tattoo of he ex’s name, put it in a jar and mailed it to him.
Cuz, you know, tattoo removal was out of the question…
…is it wrong that my first thought was. ‘It’s a bit inconsiderate that she didn’t pickle or salt it’

I feel vaguely ashamed that my gym outfit is a pair of baggy yoga pants, an ASDA t-shirt and a sense of generalised resentment. I do have some nice Saucony trainers!

So far, not in love with any of the Fall programming. I like Selfie ‘don’t be jelly, Linda!’, but probably not in a fandomy way (although writing in their voices would be fun), I liked the Flash..but my favourite character was Grood, so…a off-screen evil gorilla isn’t the person to root…
I think you’d probably like The 100 (2nd season starts in less than a month). Didn’t have high expectations of it, but the first season turned out to be surprisingly good! Basically it’s everything I originally hoped Revolution would be. Really good characterization, thoughtful examination of morality & government in situations of extreme scarcity, no real ‘villains’, just people with different goals. Plus, it’s certainly woken up my fanfic reading/writing urges.
I had high hopes for the 100 when it came out, then I didn’t care for it that much. Except I had a spare weekend when I was icky, and binge watched the first half season. Result? I love it. I ship Bellamy/Everyone and I even like the adults - who actually DO bad things and don’t get whitewashed.
I like The Last Ship too. It intrigued me on a building blocks level up until the last two episodes, when I started carrying about the characters.
Still…it is weird coming in to a fandom late?
From what I was able to find on Tumblr, The Last Ship doesn’t have much of a fandom here and what is here is very, very canon friendly. The only ship I saw mentioned was scientist + captain, even when his wife was still alive and well. I feel like there’s a lot of potential with the show, particularly if they go with complex post-viral worldbuilding, but since it built up its ratings as boom porn and it’s produced by TNT (advertising motto “Boom”) I’m not really expecting much from it. I think it will continue to be middle aged white guys saving the day episode after episode. As much as I hate Kripke’s “sometimes you have to kill someone so we know it’s a dangerous world” bodycount, The Last Ship seems to have chosen a redshirts only route that lacks tension.
I really like Manhattan. I don’t know that I fan it, but I do see it fairly soon after each new episode is out. I’m back on Grey’s Anatomy and I’ll probably watch The Vampire Diaries since they just brought a character I like back from the dead. I’ll give The 100 another try based on your recommendation. Jadedbirch and Dragomir are lobbying for people to watch Defiance which was just renewed for a third season.
I really liked first season Defiance - although I spent a lot of time sulking that Stahma was what Julia SHOULD HAVE BEEN - but just couldn’t get excited about the second season. I suspect more general Cory ennui issues than any problems with the show.
The 100…they have people who do bad things. They accept they did bad things, they sometimes end up trying to do better things. At no point - so far - has anyone gone ‘but it really wasn’t their fault, she/he is a lovely lamb of a soul’. Moral ambiguity is a thing. I approve.
Clarke is - in some ways - a lot like what we wanted the early Blackout Miles to be? She’s a good person, she tries so damn hard to do good things, but sometimes the only options are bad ones. She knows that, she accepts it and what it means for her, and she doesn’t let anyone browbeat her for it.
