Nicole and Zara - no more?

Do I have to write this one? I refuse to fill this with pics of Chris and Jav, so expect lots of Nicole Miller's face reaction shots.

Episode 6788-6789 Monday 29th July 2019Collapse )

Nicole has two brief scenes on Tuesday, all work related.

Episode 6791 Wednesday 31th July 2019Collapse )

Thursday Nicole is in one more scene with her family about the music festival.

Factoid: in 2012 while writing recaps about Maia and Nicole and Jennifer I noted that Maia was the third longest serving current actor on the show. Now, Nicole is.

Maia and Jay were introduced in 2004, so that's been a continuous queer women presence on Shorty for 15 years now.

This week I tuned into Shortland St (it's been a while) to find Nicole might have a girlfriend again; so I went and watched the last two weeks of episodes On Demand. Luckily story moves so fast on Shortland St that that was less than I needed.

You'll get the hang of it

I've finally gotten around to highlighting some of the Yuletide fics I enjoyed this year. It's a bit incomplete, I lost some tabs I had open at one point.

I have to say I'm not enjoying this storyline at all.

There's lesbianing again on Shortland St

...which means I feel honourbound to recap.

So, three years later on Shortland StCollapse )

More tomorrow.

Yuletide fic recs

Belatedly, my yuletide 2015 fic recs.


Bletchley Circle
Covert Operations
A full case fic

Court of Fives
small things
Specifically explores Amaya and Denya's relationship, pre-book.

Swallows and Amazons/Ballet Shoes
Which Things Brough Us Here
Petrova/Peggy, set during World War II

I Love You (So What)
I didn't watch UnReal for the femslash, but I still love the last image of the season, and so was happy to see this fic.

You Be Stunning (Baby, I'll Be Stunned)
Trina/Janet are my OTP, but this fic covers some ground the show ignored.

Mad Max
the burning wheel
A fixit fic that chooses not to be, the femslash is minimal.

12 Dancing Princesses
Princesses, Dancing

Orange Is The New Black
Learning to Breathe in Outer Space
This story does several clever things in creating a space AU about Suzanne.

MacBeth, Irish Mythology
Servants of the Morrigan

Strange Empire
The Antidote
Sex pollen fic.

To see most of the yulteide femslash, try this link


There's always joy in fic that is not only for fandom but also about fandom. For me the best of those this year were:

The Martian
What happens once Mark Watney's video logs are made public. it's a little more internet now than internet near future, but that really doesn't matter. #watneylog
(incidentally I just sorted Yuletide by Kudos, and this fic has the most)

Jane the Virgin
Rogelio finds out about RPF, and responds in a very Rogelio like way.

And I think this was probably the most retweeted Yuletide fic, at least that I saw:
This American Life (with various crossovers)

This is just short, but it's included for the crossover, because the world needs more:

The Bletchley Circle/Agent Carter

And I can't miss out fic for an actual NZ source text:
Footrot Flats
The Best Biscuits
The Scarlet Manuka rides again!

The Dispossessed by Ursula Le Guin
The First Train to Brotherhood
Not beautiful, but useful; much like Pravic.

Dark Matter
By the Numbers
Might count as preslash.

And a couple of fandoms where I'd just say read all the fic:
Dark is Rising by Susan Cooper
Several long continuations fics.

Ancillary books by Ann Leckie
Lots of tea and fish sauce

Yuletide Recs

I've finally had the time at a computer to put together my Yuletide recs, having read most of them on my phone.

Nicole/Harper on Shortland Street

I'm amused that I had thought, ooh, Rachel's wedding, I'll catch up on yesterday's Shortland St (I've barely watched it for months), and as I finished watching it I saw the tweets about Harper and Nicole, so loaded up the next one to watch too. Yay! I was wondering if Harper and Nicole would work, months ago (I gather Harper's had an evil boyfriend follow her back from New york in the meantime, and then bugger off again?).

Anyway, I'm not too sure about this rush from commiserating about "guys we can't have" to suddenly kissing, but it's Shortie, everything gets rushed. I'm just pleased Nicole is getting some!

Have some grainy, low res pics.

See here for some of Nicole's backstory: http://www.flagshiptv.com/49-international-soaps/1700-shortland-street-recaps-spoilers-and-discussion.html


I've just realised I've been talking about this everywhere but here.

I'm visiting the US! My tickets are booked, I'll be going to New York for a week from the 20th January, and then going to LA to go to Xenacon and then stay with a friend. I'm so excited!

I have packing lists!

I have touristy things to do lists!

I'd love to meet up with peeps, so if you're in or near either city let me know and we might be able to arrange a get together.

And I'd love more advice on must-do things in NYC and LA.


Yes I Still Exist

One of the reasons I don't post often is because I'm barely ever up to date with my friendslist. I'm still compelled to read everything, but most of the time I start at skip?400, and read til I find myself coming somewhere around skip?600 and then rinse repeat the next time I have time. It doe smean i comment less and post not at all. But I am still here, just not as much as I am on twitter (@aquila1nz), and on Flagshiptv. And I'm playing with Google+ atm ( http://gplus.to/aquila ) And I read everything.

And so does anyone know why my friendlist suddenly won't go back past skip?625. I killed some feeds a month ago, which would have temporarily decreased it, but I can see no reason this week that I shouldn't be able to access the last 1000 posts. Very strange.

Things I'm looking forward to - the Auckland International Film Festival starts next week, I have many, many films booked: http://www.flicks.co.nz/features/2011-new-zealand-film-festival-line-up/

The Passionate and the Privileged

The Passionate and the Privileged, Episode 1

This is something I've really been looking forward to. PandP is a scripted drama played out on twitter. There are twice weekly episodes, where the actors playing the characters tweet to a script, complete with narration and added multimedia, and then between episodes the characters tweet and interact with the audience in character.

What Doesn't Kill Us Makes Us StrangerCollapse )

There's a great interview about the show here:

Lost Girl

Soaps 451

While I mourned Guiding Light for the loss of Otalia and the fact that we never got to see the story untruncated, I also felt really disappointed that the show didn't receive official support to try and make the jump to online, as it had once made the jump from radio to television. It seemed the perfect time to take advantage of our enthusiasm for Otalia, and the show's long history, to push the envelope and start the transition. Instead all our efforts went to waste.

If you like solving puzzles

Hope Royaltey will be revealing information about the characters in her new series via a series of clues.

Last time she did clues there were codes, anagrams and internet treasure hunts, so if it's your sort of thing you may like to take a look.

The first clue is http://www.flagshiptv.com/index.php?option=com_wrapper&view=wrapper&Itemid=74

The answer can be entered on the page, and it'll tell you if you're correct.

And the show, well it's fairly unique:

"It is an entirely scripted show, the characters will all be tweeting LIVE with a narrator filling in the action. The story is full of twist and turns, humor, heartbreak, mistaken identities, mysterious diseases, murder, deception, love, betrayal, freak accidents... let's see, did I leave anything out? Oh, yes, a slow burn romance that I think you'll all enjoy!"
