Okay, I'm officially sucked in

I've been watching Veronica Mars from the beginning, although Tuesday nights are hard to manage RL wise. I really enjoy the show -- there's something very Picket Fence-y about it.

But I've been satisfied to watch, for the most part.

Well.

That's different now. I'm officially sucked in. Thinking about it in the car, in the shower, falling asleep. This is a familiar pattern, and inevitably leads one place.

soundingsea and wisteria_: where's the good fic? I seem to be acquiring the same bug that bit me along about Intervention in Buffy...

Also of a fannish nature: I've been head over heels for Deadwood for quite a while now, but the fannish community seems to be hiding. Any pointers?

Signing off and back to work (which now blocks LJ as well as outside email and most websites). Sigh. Wish I weren't spending 10-14 hours per day there.

Ooh boy. I actually haven't jumped headlong into VM fic-reading yet, mostly because I'm mulling over some fic ideas of my own. Off the top of my head, I know wisteria_ and buffyx have written some, which I haven't read because it's the pairing I plan to write. cindergal drabbled some for me (linked in my entry today), and spiralleds also wrote me some Veronica/Lilly: http://www.livejournal.com/users/spiralled3/80150.html.

Supposedly the community memories in veronicalogan have fic, though I can't vouch for quality. The fandom newsletter vm_news doesn't focus much on fic, though I'm hopeful for future issues.

I think sdwolfpup has been talking Deadwood lately. I watch it, but I don't write in it, because the period details would require a lot of research.

Nods. I hear you on the Deadwood fic -- I'm not sure I'm even competent to try it. VM fic, however, is totally calling my name. In the beginning I would have sworn up and down that if I ended up shipping, it would be V with Weevil, or even possibly Duncan. But...I'm sooooooooooo hooked on Logan now it's not even funny. But they better not make the perfect boyfriend out of him. One more show with one more shot at doing a messy, complicated, and totally engaging relationship. We shall see, we shall see.

Thank you for the ficcy goodness -- I am having urges myself, but don't seem to have any time to put things down on paper, so it may swirl around in my head for a while, first.

And *thanks* for the link to sdwolfpup. Looks like there's a tiny group of Deadwood groupies, after all :-)

Man, if you find Deadwood's fandom, let me know. Me and redqueen6238 are looking, but we can't find crap. No fan sites, no screen caps, no fic, no fights, no wankiness. Nothing! We're missing out on the whole experience here!

On the other hand, we could form the fandom ourselves and become BNF by default. [Homer]Default! Default! Default![/Homer]

Nods. I'm tempted to brave Yahoo again just to find fandom...

I don't quite feel competent to write Deadwood fic yet, but da-yum, the season finale last season was some of the best TV I've ever, ever seen. I do wish they'd do more with Seth, though. But Jane is back, and that draws much forgiveness from me :-)

I don't ever wanna be a BNF, however. From all I can see, it sucks big donkey genitalia!

That moment just seizes you
*
When you realize you're totally "sucked in". The theme song runs in your head, you STARE at animated icons in other people's livejournals. You get twitchy waiting for Tuesday. You change your life plan's to accomodate viewage and obsessively look for people's comments about the show.

Yep, experienced it recently myself and was wondering about whether or not there was any good fic.

Not sure I'm ready to write any yet though. I think I need at least this first season to come to an end before I can get a handle on the characters.

But that's for putting the question out there, 'cause now I have some links to check out.

I mean "thanks" for putting the question out there...

Seized, yes. That's it!
You know what's sad? I didn't even notice it was a typo. My little brain just filled in thanks and moved right on...

Re: That moment just seizes you
I hear you about being ready. I actually do think I'm ready, but time is sooooo scarce.
And it's Tuesday and I'm twitchy.

And ::pouts:: I have to go to wooooorrrrrk. Sniffle. I'll set up memories on the VM stuff I find, when I hit the weekend if not sooner. I've only read Lesley's and soon, Mosca's, but I'll mark the good stuff :-)

Fair warning: I like early Veronica/Weevil, pulled for a happily-ever-after with Duncan briefly, and have seriously been snatched up by the Veronica/Logan obsession now... I think I'm a V/anyone shipper :-)

Re: That moment just seizes you
Thanks in advance for marking the fics. I'll keep your Veronica/Weevil fascination in mind. To be honest with you, I'm not sure I want her to be with.

I'm still unsure about Logan, though I've been swept up by it. I don't trust it.

Still, if there's a well-written fic...

Re: That moment just seizes you
Heh. There is.

Go to vmfic

Soundingsea's set up a rec community.

And are you east coast? Did you just watch?

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!

I feel like I did in Buffy again. I'd have sworn it couldn't happen, but it did, it did.



Rob Thomas is god.

Re: That moment just seizes you
Thanks!

The link's not working for me. Maybe too much traffic???

Yep, I'm East Coast (NY) and just watched. I'm still thinking on things a bit and probably gonna post some random thoughts soon.

I'm shocked I feel this way about a show again. I never thought I would. And it just kind of snuck up on me.

Re: That moment just seizes you
Oh shoot. I got it wrong.

This: vm_fic

There's an underscore in there, I think.

I'm in complete amazement to be this absolutely in love. I've liked it all along, but I'm down deep now.

Ah, ain't obsession fun?

I wrote VM fic once. Nobody Wants to Uncover, Logan/Weevil because I make my own weird fun, no claims to actual quality.

And that I've *gotta* read. Thanks for the linkage, mosca!

*waves* Hi :)
Been awhile. I've been hearing alot about VM lately, and have yet to see it. Stupid Tuesday at 9 (hello, house?).

But ... Deadwood. *happy sigh* I watched that show last year after it aired all at once. At first I thought I wasn't going to like it but now ... let's say Timothy Olyphant reigned me in. Can't get enough. It's my secret fandom. And everyone else's, apparently.

Is the VM chick the one that was on Deadwood last season? If so, might have to dl immediately. :)

Hey you! S'good to know you're still out there (and that there are people who lurk worse than me, too).

Kristen Bell was, in fact, Flora last season on Deadwood, so get thee downloading. It's *not* Buffy repeated, but the quality is similar: ensemble cast, lead female, great selection of characters, good writing, plus a great mystery. Very pop culture-y, too.

And, uh, Timothy Olyphant? ::drools:: I find that I want moremoremore Wilcox, too. Great actor, and what a character to play with!
