*EXPLODEYSPAZ*  
GUYS. GUYS.

Okay, you know how I am really, really, ridiculously, shrieking-twelve-year-old-y in love with Talia Winters/Michael Garibaldi from Babylon 5? And that there are basically four people out there who agree with me that this is kinda neat, and one of them is my mom?

THERE IS A FIFTH PERSON OUT THERE SOMEWHERE, AND THEY MADE A MUSIC VIDEO.



The squeeebomb CANNOT BE CONTAINED. HOLY CRAP. (Also: DECENT QUALITY, and the song is total cheezbomb, but now I have to love whoever that cheezbomb band is, BECAUSE. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. *hyperhyperhyper*)
 
 
feel: shockedshocked

Awwwwwww, I'm so happy you got a vid for the ship no one else ships. That's such a great feeling. :D

I am just throwing my hands in the air and squeaking. I DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO EXCEPT SQUEEEEEE.

Also. Seriously. I just watched it again and cannot. stop. laughing. at the epic cheezbomb song. You know I found this looking for Michael/Susan videos for you?? (I did not find any, but I was DISTRACTED VERY QUICKLY.)

Your icon is such win.

It is really, really bad, yes.

You know I found this looking for Michael/Susan videos for you??

*squeak* Awww!

(I did not find any, but I was DISTRACTED VERY QUICKLY.)

I'm about 95% certain there aren't any to find, which makes me very sad. (The 5% uncertainty comes from not looking too hard at some results for fear of SPOILERS! Well, whatever spoilers I don't remember from hearing about when it was first airing, anyway, which are likely few at this point. It'll almost be a relief to finish this show...)

Your icon is such win.

Thanks. :D

SADDDDD. Though you never know, one might turn up totally randomly!!! I think I need to do a fandom roundup for my tiny, tiny, fandom-of-possibly-five-people. I mean, REALLY. There MUST be some awful fanfic on ff.net at least. That's where *I* would have posted all those terrible. horrible. babylon 5 novels. I wrote when I was 14 or so... (THANK GOD I did not know about online fandom). I will look for you as well!! :) We can fortify our small islands of fandom.

(And then we will have to STICK TOGETHER and write each other fanfic... errrr... I KNOW, BUT I CAN DREAM.)

Also, need moar icons. Must figure out how to screencap.

I live in hope!

I think I need to do a fandom roundup for my tiny, tiny, fandom-of-possibly-five-people. I mean, REALLY. There MUST be some awful fanfic on ff.net at least.

Or on Alternate Universe Today? That's where I found most of the Susan/Michael fic out there.

That's where *I* would have posted all those terrible. horrible. babylon 5 novels. I wrote when I was 14 or so... (THANK GOD I did not know about online fandom).

Ohhhh, I wish I hadn't known about online fandom when I was that young. My ancient fics are out there on newsgroups, for crying out loud.

I will look for you as well!! :) We can fortify our small islands of fandom.

Eeee!

(And then we will have to STICK TOGETHER and write each other fanfic... errrr... I KNOW, BUT I CAN DREAM.)

I would love to do that, but sadly I have enough trouble writing my own pairing. *sigh* I'm not sure I could manage another one. :(

Also, need moar icons. Must figure out how to screencap.

If you're on a Mac, FreeSnap works wonders. It's how I do all my capping.

OMG! NEW LINK!!! The main page of that site looks... um... yeah, but I will have to search through it to ferret out awesomeness. :)

You have NO IDEA how much the internet was spared from the epicccc fics I churned out as a junior high and high schooler. I had this whole cracked out series of B5 novels where I basically FIXED EVERYTHING and reversed Talia-turned-Control, [spoiler] and [spoiler] through sci-fi and THE POWER OF LURVE. And then everyone got engaged and married (I found a honey for EVERYONE, even CORWIN) and thought about having babies. Sometimes, they hung out in the lounge and listened to someone crooning really bad twentieth century love songs and think about how the song mad them think of THEIR LOVE. All of this FOR HUNDREDS OF PAGES.

And some ideas that I had in there didn't totally suck (one of the stories in that monstrosity involved an alien race who evolved symbiotically with machines, but weren't actually cybernetic... and they show up because the station computer is damaged and they think of it like a living being in distress. Cool, right? It's less cool when you have a B plot of Susan wanting to adopt some kid Franklin finds in Down Below and... you know, I don't remember what else was in that story, but I am sure it was CRACKALICIOUS.)

Haha, that was a fun diversion from my workday! :) I DO have a mac at home and I will indeed be investigating this freesnap business!

I would love to do that, but sadly I have enough trouble writing my own pairing. *sigh* I'm not sure I could manage another one. :(

Someday!! :) We can still sign a mutual defense pact for our little island fandom nations. And I will try to write you something anyway!

This Sinclair & Delenn icon is my new favorite, haha.

You didn't know about it before? Oh, you should be happy. I know there's Michael/Talia on there. (I think this is the original central archive for the show. I remember going to it back in '96 or so. Judging by the HTML, it hasn't changed since then.)

You have NO IDEA how much the internet was spared from the epicccc fics I churned out as a junior high and high schooler. I had this whole cracked out series of B5 novels where I basically FIXED EVERYTHING and reversed Talia-turned-Control, [spoiler] and [spoiler] through sci-fi and THE POWER OF LURVE.

(Would the spoilers be for Michael's alternate personality? I've seen enough to know that someone switched on something in his brain, and I'm 99% certain Bester has something to do with it.)

I sort of miss the days when I could consider fixing everything through THE POWER OF LURVE as, like, epically good writing.

And then everyone got engaged and married (I found a honey for EVERYONE, even CORWIN)

DUDE.

and thought about having babies

Oh, if only the world had been spared my babyfic. There was a whole big novella and its sequel involving Julian and Jadzia and their twins. Pretty sure no one on Voyager was spared a kid, either, although mercifully those were probably shorter fics. Oh, and Julia and Alonzo from Earth 2 had three girls, as I recall...there were others, I'm sure. Gah.

Sometimes, they hung out in the lounge and listened to someone crooning really bad twentieth century love songs and think about how the song mad them think of THEIR LOVE.

NICE.

All of this FOR HUNDREDS OF PAGES.

Are they still on your hard drive? You should totally MST3K them or something.

And some ideas that I had in there didn't totally suck (one of the stories in that monstrosity involved an alien race who evolved symbiotically with machines, but weren't actually cybernetic... and they show up because the station computer is damaged and they think of it like a living being in distress. Cool, right?

Ooooh, plots! And cool SFish concepts! My fics never extended that far. It was all about the LURVE. FOR PAGES AND PAGES.

It's less cool when you have a B plot of Susan wanting to adopt some kid Franklin finds in Down Below

Um.

and... you know, I don't remember what else was in that story, but I am sure it was CRACKALICIOUS

I'm sure it was. Oooh, did it have Vir falling for a Minbari, because he's spent so much time on Minbar? Or better yet, Na'Toth! Oh, I would totally read Vir/Na'Toth fic, come to think of it. I must see if there's any around.

I DO have a mac at home and I will indeed be investigating this freesnap business!

Excellent! Here's a link, now that I think of it.

We can still sign a mutual defense pact for our little island fandom nations.

Haha, yes! We can be a tiny little commonwealth of nations in the big B5 shipper world!

And I will try to write you something anyway!

<3!

This Sinclair & Delenn icon is my new favorite, haha.

It is indeed an awesome icon. :D
Little Red: b5 - ivanova oven - crazybeemylittleredgirl on May 7th, 2009 01:37 am (UTC)
I know there's Michael/Talia on there.

!!!!!!!!!!! Oh. I'll be there, dude. *pumps fist*

(Would the spoilers be for Michael's alternate personality? I've seen enough to know that someone switched on something in his brain, and I'm 99% certain Bester has something to do with it.)

Actually, no, those weren't the spoilers I blacked out, and I don't remember if the possible-spoiler you're referring to played a role in these stories. It should have, though.

Oh, if only the world had been spared my babyfic. There was a whole big novella and its sequel involving Julian and Jadzia and their twins. Pretty sure no one on Voyager was spared a kid, either, although mercifully those were probably shorter fics.

Oh man, my trek stuff. OH MAN. OH MAN. Captain Janeway's long-lost half alien daughter, OH MAN. Hahahaha. I gave B'Elanna kids too. And background characters. Also, I made B'Elanna and Chakotay hook up a lot in the earlier fics. Later on, she hooked up with a random alien telepath because an Alanis Morisette song made them REALIZE THEIR LOVE. He dies, but not before she gets knocked up. I think I then had her go back to Tom, haha. It was SOAP OPERA DRAMA in my Voyager world, baybee.

Um, as a grown up, I will confess to the occasional crack!fic where Kes has triplets (IT MAKES SENSE KIND OF), and the strong, strong desire to have Ezri and Julian have spotted babies (though one at a time please).

Are they still on your hard drive? You should totally MST3K them or something.

I might still have a backup CD somewhere??? I will look!! They are waaaay too long to MST3K, but I'll try to find some cringe-inducing scenes to share. ;) I don't think I'll have to look too hard. *cringes now just thinking about it*

Oooh, did it have Vir falling for a Minbari, because he's spent so much time on Minbar? Or better yet, Na'Toth! Oh, I would totally read Vir/Na'Toth fic, come to think of it. I must see if there's any around.

No! I think I ignored the Centauri and the Narn 100% in those early fics. I think you have to be a little older to really appreciate them. :) Vir/Na'Toth is kind of scary!!

FreeSnap's development company seems to have sold itself to Canadian pharmaceuticals. I can't find a working download on the internets. WOE. I guess I will just use screengrab since I have a mac and make do...

COMMONWEALTH OF NATIONS YAY. "Time Travelin' Jesus" will write our anthem.
Icepixie: [B5] Ivanova the Terribleicepixie on May 7th, 2009 03:28 pm (UTC)
!!!!!!!!!!! Oh. I'll be there, dude. *pumps fist*

Heh. Remember that I did not promise it would be good.

Actually, no, those weren't the spoilers I blacked out, and I don't remember if the possible-spoiler you're referring to played a role in these stories. It should have, though.

Ohhh, wait, it has to be Michael and Lise's marriage, doesn't it? I've been spoiled for that, and actually her first episode back in his life was on the last disc I watched. BOO.

Oh man, my trek stuff. OH MAN. OH MAN.

At least EVERYONE has some really bad Trek fanfic they wrote when they were in middle school, though. It's like chickenpox. Everyone gets it.

Captain Janeway's long-lost half alien daughter, OH MAN.

OH DEAR.

I gave B'Elanna kids too.

Well, the show eventually gave her a kid, too, so...you were prescient?

Also, I made B'Elanna and Chakotay hook up a lot in the earlier fics.

Oh, my. I got into Voyager in...S3? I think it was S3, and as I recall that's a very shippy season for both P/T and J/C, so my preferences were set right from the start.

Later on, she hooked up with a random alien telepath because an Alanis Morisette song made them REALIZE THEIR LOVE.

You should take comfort--I think--in the fact that THE SHOW ITSELF would not have been above doing EXACTLY THAT.

It was SOAP OPERA DRAMA in my Voyager world, baybee.

Hee!

Um, as a grown up, I will confess to the occasional crack!fic where Kes has triplets (IT MAKES SENSE KIND OF), and the strong, strong desire to have Ezri and Julian have spotted babies (though one at a time please).

Along with the deep loathing of real life children, I grew into a hatred for babyfic of all kinds--unless it's done really, really well, and the focus is on something besides the kid. Then I can manage. But I reeeeally don't think I'll ever write babyfic again.

I might still have a backup CD somewhere??? I will look!! They are waaaay too long to MST3K, but I'll try to find some cringe-inducing scenes to share. ;) I don't think I'll have to look too hard. *cringes now just thinking about it*

Mwahahahaha! I look forward to it.

No! I think I ignored the Centauri and the Narn 100% in those early fics. I think you have to be a little older to really appreciate them. :)

Them and their six appendages? :D God only knows what kind of equipment the Narn have. I try not to think too hard about it.

Vir/Na'Toth is kind of scary!!

And yet hilarious to think about.

FreeSnap's development company seems to have sold itself to Canadian pharmaceuticals. I can't find a working download on the internets. WOE. I guess I will just use screengrab since I have a mac and make do...

Woooooooeeeee. Hmm...this looks fairly similar--more complicated, but also more features. I would just Apple's built-in screengrabber as well, but it IS DISABLED when the DVD player is open. THAT'S ONLY THE WHOLE REASON I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE SCREENCAPS.

COMMONWEALTH OF NATIONS YAY. "Time Travelin' Jesus" will write our anthem.

And play it at diplomatic functions!

Heh. Remember that I did not promise it would be good.

Oh. Don't worry. At no point did I expect 'good.'

Ohhh, wait, it has to be Michael and Lise's marriage, doesn't it? I've been spoiled for that, and actually her first episode back in his life was on the last disc I watched. BOO.

Nope, not that either. I just kind of preempted that one, since the stories started somewhere early in S5. (Actually, I started writing them after season 2, and did massive edits every season to try to keep it "current.") I recall at one point wanting Lise to show up in the crazy stories, because she had showed up on the show and I was all "NoooOOOOoooooOOO!" but they didn't get married. I NEVER LIKED HER.

I <3 children, and have a bit of a weakness for the occasional babyfic. But, you know, it has to be the right pairing where it makes SENSE for them to have kids, and has to be handled in a kind of... I don't know. I like messy realism when it comes to kidfic. The baby shouldn't be like a pet that's so cute and sleeps beatifically all the time so the parents can have sex a lot, haha, and everyone thinks their life is perfect all the time. That's just LESS FUN. Most of the possible pairings on B5, for instance? Should really not have children. They're all just too messed up. ;)

I will try that link when I get home from werk!! :) I didn't realize that the screengrabber didn't work on DVDs. Thanks for all the info, girl! :) I'll need to get on this. I have not turned up a lot of icons that I like in my B5 icon search. WOE.

Ah.

(Actually, I started writing them after season 2, and did massive edits every season to try to keep it "current.")

Egads. I seem to recall doing a lot of "Goes AU after [whatever episode aired just before I started writing]." And of course now I mostly write for closed canon fandoms, which is useful.

I NEVER LIKED HER.

I DON'T EITHER. And I've only seen her twice.

Yeah, messy realism will get me closer toward liking a particular babyfic. But sickly sweet bonding with cherubic babies makes me want to kill puppies. Blech.

SRSLY.

Thanks for all the info, girl! :)

You're welcome!

I have not turned up a lot of icons that I like in my B5 icon search. WOE.

Woe indeed. I get the impression that B5 doesn't have much LJ presence--there are individual fans, but not many communities or anything. Hard to find icons & fic.

The person who made it also made a few Susan/Talia vids -- and a really nice Talia's-sad-life vid that has strong Susan/Talia angles. :)

Dude, you know I've got your back. I liked them too! I'm totally in love with Susan and Marcus - so I ended up buying Seasons 1-4 on DVD. Not only that but Claudia Christian kicks ass so after she left I said "what's the fraggin' point?"

I digress - I thought there was some chemistry between the two of them too! Have you mentioned this before? I don't recall....

Miss you madly! I'm going stir crazy here in da U.P., so I'm busting out of here ASAP. Even if it's just a vacay! You up for a visit from your favorite Spartan/Yooper??

*hugs*
