*bounce bounce bounce*

My library has the next book in the Aubrey/Maturin series in on CD for me! Treason's Harbor. I love Maturin and his birds so much. Good lord I wish I could write characters half as well as Patrick O'Brien.

[insert fangirly shrieking here]

And my Professionals DVDs came!!! They arrived! They will be unwrapped! They will be watched! They will be MINE!!!

I'm adding this for just as a note to myself, really. It's a list of fandom-related things that I want and really can't afford or can't get ahold of cause, like, the zines are out of print or the author threw a hissyfit and stomped out of fandom and took all her stories with her (or so I'm told; who knows what really happened--fan history is written by those who stick around).
Work in progress--I'm adding things slowly to this list. Gonna start with Pros fandom--brand new (to me), but already belov'd.

The Professionals

The DVD boxed set Yeah, I broke down and bought it. My excuse to myself is that my brother was going to buy it for me otherwise, and he really couldn't afford it.

#2 and #3 in Jane Carnall's "Fox and Wolf" trilogy. Is this online anywhere? If so, I can't find it.

Various zines )
Somebody to write me a Stuart/Doyle fic. Because I heart Stuart. Of course my OTP is Bodie/Doyle so I want Bodie to find out and be angsty and jealous but unwilling to admit he's jealous, but I want Stuart and Doyle to snark at each other and at Bodie. I've got a feeling if I want this fanfic, I'm going to have to write it myself. Nobody else in this fandom seems to share my Stuart-love. This might have something to do with the fact that he appears in a grand total of one episode and is a bit of a dick, but I heart him anyways.

Podfic! Fanfic, read aloud. Sometimes, but not always, by the author. There is, sadly, no Professionals podfic. Woe. Yep, this is another thing I'm going to have to do if I want it. I wonder what kind of equipment I'd need?

So, I know this is... wrong... but I want to see The New Professionals. I already know I won't like it, but I want to see it. It's like--it's like Galactica 1980, right? You know it's a trainwreck, but it's a canon trainwreck so you want to see it! ...But then you discover that accepting it as canon means you have to accept that Starbuck died stranded and alone on a barren planet. Which is so not cool. I don't have high hopes for this series, but I do want to see it. Just to know.

Since this is more of a dreamlist than a wishlist, I'll stick this on: I want to see The Chief as well. Which, well, if you thought it was hard for an American to get ahold of a popular '70s British show...

...The novelizations! Because it's *almost* canon!

Starsky & Hutch

Season 4 DVDs. Yes, Season 4 sucked. But I have the other three seasons, and I have great memories of lounging around Leonard's cabin naked watching them. So I want the last season.

The Lone Gunmen

I want the It Takes All Kinds archive back up. Because I firmly believe that it is a fandom tragedy when an archive goes down, especially for small fandoms like this one.

D. Sidhe to update her hilarious, cracked-out, had-me-laughing-so-hard-I-hurt Caffeine, Conspiracies, And The Fortean Nature of Fishes. I spent days reading this series last Christmas. Stories like this are the reason fanfiction was invented.

Also I want the DVDs. I totally cannot justify this to myself as I have all the eps on my laptop.

Law & Order

Yes! NBC gave us Season 6 on DVD! Now give us Season 7! And, you know, Seasons 8-18! Also, get my library to buy them so that I don't have to!

And yeah, I know this fandom is ancient by internet standards, but it's incredibly frustrating to know that there was once good Logan/Stone fic out there that people actually recced, and now there's like, three stories still on the 'net.

The Practice

Best law show ever. So why don't they put more than the first season out on DVD?? *pouts*

Also, some decent fanfic for this show. Am I just not looking in the right places?

Lord of the Rings

There's this fanfic that was written back before the movies. It's gen. It's about three paragraphs long. It's about Legolas, to whom I have never been partial. It remains the best fanfic I have ever read. And I can't find it anywhere.

New Battlestar Galactica

Somebody to watch Season 3 with.
No, scratch that. Somebody to watch Season 3 with who does not believe that Sarah Palin is going to Save America From Itself in 2012.

Sorry to drop off the radar for so long. Wish it were for better reasons than it actually was. Not completely back yet, but getting there. Hopefully.

In the time since I've last written, I've managed to lose my cellphone. This means I no longer have many of your phone numbers (wail of despair!!!).

In the time since I've last written, my brother's roof fell in. Now he is living in his landlord's shed. ...Yup... Well, look, he'd be living under my bed, wouldn't he, except he's five states away from me!

In the time since I've last written, my tentative plans of becoming a Buddhist nun met a fiery and ironic death. Nuff said.

In the time since I've last written, I discovered Pros fandom. Oh. My. God.
It is the crackiest crack in the world. And since The Professionals aired before I was even born, the fandom has thirty years of crack. Mmmmm...

In the time since I've last written, the world has gone to hell in a handbasket, and those of you who are planning not to vote? DEAD TO ME. I don't care who you vote for, just do it, dammit!

In the time since I've last written, I had a wonderful, beautiful, lovely, exquisite week in which depression did not once touch me. It was amazing. It was awesome. It was just so... nice. Then the black netting caught me again and pulled me under for two weeks, worse luck. Just barely keeping afloat these days.

Er... travel plans:

1) I'll be in SA over Christmas, so all those (two or three) people whose numbers I lost with my phone? You should definitely give me your phone numbers before then.

2) I'll probably be in Boston for a trade show for a few days in October. Do I know anyone who's still in Boston? If so, call me, because I guarantee I don't have your number... I mean, I couldn't even call my dad cause I don't know any numbers by heart!

3) All you DC folk, I am collecting strays for Thanksgiving. I'm flying my brother up here--ghod willing he'll have a home by then--and I'm hosting an actual honest-to-Pete dinner at my place. We hope it will not be a disaster... I've never even cooked a chicken in my life, let alone a turkey... but we figure if we burn the house down we can go to the Olive Garden across the road. So if you are in the area and don't have Thanksgiving plans, please come! Only let me know a bit beforehand if you can, please, so I'll have a rough count of who all is coming.
