It's easy when you grow up with Children in Need, Comic Relief and so on, to just mute it during the appeals and enjoy the entertainment, to know what it's all about but not really pay attention after you've done your bit at school/work etc. 

Whenever Annie Lennox is on though it just makes me cry, she cares so much and does so much for these people.  Russell Brand's appeals were good as well, he has a way of seeming more genuine? He just seems to engage more, and usually he makes me cringe!!  I have to say this is the first year I'm watching any of these all the way through (and not just turning it off after catching the main thing that appeals to me - Ashes to Ashes this year).

I don't know why I posted about this, it just really got to me this year.  I hope they do well!!  I'm off to keep watching :)

Despite still recovering from being horribly ill (AGAIN FFS!), I feel like writing Christmas fic. Any prompts?

Shows I'm into atm are Stargate Atlantis, Supernatural, Ashes to Ashes, Due South, Life on Mars, The OC, Merlin and Sports Night, so I feel I could write for them as character voices are floating around my consciousness :)

2) Have your f-list guess your favourite character/member from each item.
3) When someone guesses correctly, strikethrough the item and put the name of your favorite character next to it.

Anyone interested in beta-ing a Life on Mars fic?  Entitled  '5 Crazy People That Gene Hunt Met (Much To His Horror) and one with whom he was reunited'  Or something along those lines!

It's a response to a prompt [personal profile] wickednotevil gave me AGES ago and is kind of multifandom as well.  Anyone?  Its about 2000 words thus far and I've done 3 of the 5.
[Poll #1430745]
To be honest, I'm definitely going to get Ashes to Ashes at some point, but Im debating whether to wait til its gone down in price a bit.  I've actually just bought Quantum Leap series 2, because it was only £7 on play :)

Other helpful comments? I've not seen all of Torchwood series one, and I've barely seen any of Angel but love Buffy :)

So I didnt get the job I went to the interview for... and its kinda put me off my planned career path, but hey! No matter, I have more time to read fic now :)

So I am now over halfway through season four of buffy and it is brill as expected.  As for fic and pairings my #1 non-canon pairing is definitely Spike/Xander.  On screen the Buffy/Angel made me cringe I'm afraid, but still made me cry at sad bits... at the mo I'm loving Anya and Xander and I'm at the bit where Tara and Willow are just starting to hang out, I dont remember aww-ing over Tara before but she's made of win :)

In terms of fic though, I've used the wonder of google to find me some rec lists which I'm going to peruse during my leisure time (my extensive unemployed with no future prospects amount of leisure time).  Here they are for anyone interested.  I've no idea if they're any good but I guess I'll find out! :)

(1) ripewickedplum and jenn's rec list
(2) Haemotodypsia's fic rec's
(3) Shakatany's Buffy recs
(4) [profile] ladyflame_uk's fic recs
(5) [livejournal.com profile] kimberly_fan/[personal profile] kimberly_a's Favourite Spander Fics

p.s. I got me an Alex icon :) yays!! I've been resisting and resisting but finally i had to get a few Ashes to Ashes ones and even a few featuring Alex herself

EDIT: In terms of Buffy fic recs, you can (usually) never go wrong with [livejournal.com profile] epic_recs  and they have a buffy fic rec tag (which I've unfortunately already exhausted but might be handy for other people). And obviously [livejournal.com profile] crack_van  is the place to go for recs of any and every kind, their buffy tag is here

So does anyone know if there's any Ashes to Ashes discussion out there about the possible significance of the Quattro's licence plate?

It's: JLY 7 5IV
Which I'm guessing could be July, maybe July 7th 1954??  The only other thing I've got is from my media student friend whose recently been trawling through 7/7 newspaper articles, and she was like its July 7th 05.  This makes little sense to me though and i would shun my show if it were true...

Any other thoughts?

I'm just overanalysing here because I spotted something little in 2x08 which meant something and got all excited about my special clue spotting skills :)
