Holy hells, that was awesome! Ya know at the start of this thing (we're talking snooker ppl keep up) I was rooting for Robertson because it's fucking Neil Robertson and if not him then Selby (see previous Robertson statement as to why) and if neither of them made it then Williams... then Higgins. Don't get me wrong Trump is awesome and a force to be reckoned with (I remember being impressed by one of his matches I caught part of a couple years back- took me forever to find him again, too, bloody Swedish speaking Eurosport and their lousily timed Mid Session games *grumbles*), but I felt like he was getting a bit cocky, not that he didn't deserve to feel cocky, but even then you need to have some humility, yeah. Anyway, I said before (on Twitter) that I wanted to see him have to work for the win over Ding and to my pleasure, he did, and after that I was torn on him or Higgins... until this afternoon when I was literally fist pumping every time Higgins got a good shot or won a frame, I kinda realized that even if I hadn't consciously made a choice apparently I had a favourite, lol. So yeah well played all 'round, but I have to say 'm glad Higgins won- it also proved just how amazing Trump is and will be, the grace and humour with which accepted defeat was brill, I'd watch him just for that. :D
Anyway, this means *pokes Rainbow* no more snooker until the fall
unless I actually find some of these exhibition matches, but I doubt 'll be obsessing or pestering you guys with that
, so you guys are free from the snooker parade for the time being!
Unfortunately, it also means no more procrastinating with my Merlin Big Bang... but that's okay, I need to get focused on it anyway, bloody thing ain't gonna write itself! Just wish Gwen would behave and stop pestering me to let her find out already and that Leon wasn't trying to get me to 'explain things' to Arthur when none of them are ready!!! And of course Gaius is just sitting there watching it all with alternating sour/amused/concerned looks, all of which have their own form of 'arched-eyebrow-of-doom' though why they bother when I doubt I'll be able to explain the subtleties my mind comes up with without going on for a paragraph or more! At least Geoffrey is trying to help, he's waiting patiently, knowing his lines or at least his actions and motivations, but he's not pushing, bless is shiny bald head, he's just sitting there waiting, scribbling something. Huffs, trust the bloody librarian to be the only one not giving me a headache! And don't get me started on Merlin!!! He's being worst, he's not talking to Gwen, which is why she's being all PMSy, and he's avoiding Gaius and his all-knowing eyebrow, and well, Arthur can't decide whether he's supposed to be shagging him or playing mister avoidy prat so Merlin's avoiding him
! *pounds head on desk*
*giggles* I dl'd that beautiful Colin vid that's been going around, at least I assume it has, anyway. I got it dl'd and ripped the audio for my MP3 and after a bit of an argument got the vid converted for it, too... I'm thinking it's gonna take up permanent residence next to 1x04 and 2x13 in his vid files. :D
And yet more fanishness- I is makings more iconeseses! Mostly Bradley from Kapow, I know the shots have been used for icons already so 'm only planning on posting them here or my graphics journal, unless I get a bug up my arse and wind up making oodles of other icons in a vain attempt at avoiding the aforementioned Big Bang, lol. And before you ask, mainly 'm making these because HE WON'T STOP LOOKING AT ME and whispering 'you don't have any good Bradley icons, you know you want some' to which I try to ignore him and gawk at the beauty that is Colin... but then that ring and those forearms (FOREARMS, Rainbow, FOREARMS) get me and... yeah... it's like Colin-ring-Colin-ring-Colin-ring-Colin-
ring and then my mental Bradley starts spouting RPS thoughts at me, usually about what he's planning to do to Colin once they get out of there or what he DID to Colin before they got there... and herein lies madness.
Erm, yeah, that thing the other day... 's better, not okay, but better, 'm no longer seething, nor do I feel the need to rend flesh. :D
ETA: I keep forgetting to ask this, anybody got any stray protective!Arthur bunnies/prompts they might like to share, something simple and schmangsty???
Better yet anybody got any protective!Arthur fics they'd like to share????????
Ohhh, RAINBOW!!!!!!!! I was prowling some pics, so not mine, and found this
made me think of you. :P
