Things I am actually doing right now:  
1) Feeling actively bereft because I missed the hour of Dancing With the Recap timewaster before the results show tonight.

2) Not watching Body of Proof, the show I was OMG OTP-ing about last week, because I just wasn't ready to give up my Dancing squeee yet.

All this is because:

3) I am actually OTP shipping an RPF pairing on this show right now.

They had me at "Part-Time Lover"
(Their whole segment from Week 2 is here, in which Hines tries to teach Kym the appropriate use of "crunkin'" which is evidently not crossover slang with Australia - and they dance adorably, too.)

4) I have lots of headcanon and started planning thoroughly embarrassing fic about how they'll take the plane ride to the GMAs after the finale and she'll be all crushed that it's over and then they'll make plans to meet up in Pittsburgh and cook food and watch movies and my fantasies are really boring, but here's how cute they already were on their first rehearsal day:

Their babies will have really incredible teeth.

5) I just about lost it a moment ago when searching for photos and I came across this video where interviewers ask them about their romantic chemistry, and I was like WHAT WHAT I'M NOT ALONE? Where is my tabloid fanfic dammit!? I'll spare you the whole thing with the following transcript:

Interviewer: There are a lot of rumors swirling... are there rules at Dancing With the Stars about no romance with your partners?
Kym: No, there's no rules like that, but you do spend a lot of time with each other, and we have fun...
Interviewer: How much fun?
Hines: I try to be romantic every day I see her, but she's not buying it.

6) Dude, she's totally buying it.

7) I'm sharing the video with you EVEN THOUGH I said I would spare you:

8) I just spent half an hour wrestling with the moral issues of trying to get around imdb's photo download restrictions to ultimately screen shot this copyrighted photo of this key image from their tango yesterday. MY NEED WAS GREAT:

9) I can't believe I've pulled two pictures now and Kym isn't wearing tassels in either of them. Girlfriend's costume wardrobe is 90% tassel. TASSELS:

She even wears tank tops with tassels on them on rehearsal days.

10) I just combed through hulu on fullscreen to screencap the officer and a gentleman ending to their rhumba:

In the rehearsal package for this they are the broiest of bros and continually bruise each other with dancing missteps, but it's okay! True love comes from friendship and at least dropping her only when it's not liiiiiiiive.

11) I'm staying up hours past my bedtime to revel in my new OTP and spam the heck out of the two or three people who risked clicking the cut-tag. Pimpin' ain't easy but it's necessary and futile because the intersection of people who watch this show and support RPF is probably just me.

There's a lot more crack where this came from.

Your squee is killing me. Best start to a rainy Wednesday morning ever!

OMG. It's killing me ded! I'm in that phase of newOTP when everything is beautiful and nothing hurts. ;)

I miss that feeling SO MUCH! *jealous* Of course, if I actually watched TV in real time instead of Hulu time, that might help with the newOTP discovery and squee.

This entire season of DWTS is on hulu. You could join me on this right now. FOR OLD TIME'S SAKE. I even periodically write crackrecaps! ;)

You know I'd write you fic. If you haven't crossed over to the rpf dark side, anr and phrenitis and I all agree that Torri/Joe will change your life.
Pooh: SGA - Liz heeee! (by samjack-girl)mspooh on May 4th, 2011 04:32 pm (UTC)
LOL. I may attempt a season then, just for you. So that after the season is over, we will still have Squee.

I don't believe I've ever written Torri/Joe, but I do believe I've indulged in the so-wrong-yet-oh-so-good world of SGA rpf. I looped that con clip of the smooch... over and over and...

I also blame phrenitis.
Little Red: sga - sparktober kissmylittleredgirl on May 4th, 2011 04:34 pm (UTC)
She's totally blame-able! Check out prettyhellotp if you haven't - we had a whole day of Torri/Joe squeee during sparktober.

Oh, and about that, you'd better be planning on still being around in October, because SPARKTOBER IS THE WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE and also a national LJ holiday.

When you put it that way....

I joined both, just so I'll remember to follow you into the darkness. LOL.
Little Red: sga - sparktobermylittleredgirl on May 5th, 2011 10:18 pm (UTC)
YAY!!! :-D Last October was so fun and we will have yet more fun this fall. Best month of the year! For fandom anyway. :)

Doooo eeeeeeet re: watching DWTS. I will provide whatever fannish assistance may be necessary! This season has been awesome, because it's such a toss-up who will top the leaderboard every week and Maks has become this adorable charming funny guy (IT'S WEIRD BUT I LIKE IT). Also, RPFFFF.
Pooh: DWTS - Jenerek (by scoreonemore4me)mspooh on May 4th, 2011 11:44 pm (UTC)
I have a love/hate relationship with Maks. He's smug as hell, but not in a douchey way like Mark, and sometimes he's so whiny. But then other times, he's cute and funny. He really needs to make up his mind so I can, too.

And okay okay okay... I'll try to zip through this season's DWTS. It's okay to just watch the Kym/Hines parts of the episodes, right?
Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on May 5th, 2011 10:16 pm (UTC)

Oh my God, Mark is such a tool. I actually liked him okay for some of last season because, IDK, he seemed more normal and less of an asshole around Bristol. I want to like Mark! I really do! But I just CAN'T. I was so hoping that Chelsea would find a way to take him down a peg, but ALAS, now she bugs just as much as he does.

And Maks... IDK. He's been kind of adorable smug instead of infuriating smug this season. I think Kirstie chilled him out.

YES YES YES YES WATCH WATCH WATCH WATCH you are definitely allowed to zip through and just watched the required sections for this pairing. :) I need someone to enable me here because when you're crazyfangirling ALL ALONE you can hear how nuts you sound.

Heh. Can't contribute to this, as am in UK. But you iz adorable!

Although, in the UK we actually had a couple from Strictly Come Dancing (I think it's our equivilant? Sorta?) who ended up as a real couple! Can't recall their names as I was never really into it, but there were rumours and I THINK it was said that they waited for it all to be over before they really gave it a go. Or something. It was a female celeb and the male pro. I can't help but thinking if you'd been into them, you'd have esploded from gleeee!
Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on May 4th, 2011 03:28 pm (UTC)

I NEED FANDOM. But I'm pretty sure if I were to find Dancing With the Stars ficwriting fandom, it would be... really terrible.

Strictly Come Dancing is the equivalent! I think it might be the original and Dancing With the Stars in all these other countries is based off it? Actually Kym in the pairing above was on Australian Dancing With the Stars for a season or two, and the internet tells me that she broke off an engagement to be with a celeb partner who then broke up with her after the show, so clearly she is going to be hesitant about this OTP I have planned out for her. Which is my excuse for why they might not be doing it yet.

There have also been a bunch of hookups on American DWTS. We had two married pro couples at one point (squeeeee), and two of the other pros hooked up, got engaged, and then flamed out. There have also been a handful of celeb/pro pairings which last varying lengths of time after the show wraps - there was even a celeb that was cast because she was dating a pro. This show is not subtle about anything, so it loves that kind of drama and crap (AND SO DO I).
