Mondayish.  
Strange thing that I am, I like having too much office work to do rather than too little, but I'm in that place now where I have so freaking much to do that I can't figure out what to do first. I'm sort of immobilized. Which means I should go to lunch.

And now I'm back. I move like a blur, don't I?

Only got around to writing this weekend late on Sunday, but got another scene done, so decided not to hang self.

On Saturday, sherrold came over and we watched the first 3 episodes of S3 QAF. Including the great Kinney knock-out. Whammo! I find myself wondering what people think about that--can imagine that some people might come down on Michael's side, other people on Brian's. (Though Michael himself comes around afterward and basically admits to being a pissant.) My bias is obvious. I think it's a thing of beauty, not because I dislike Michael or anything, but because it was such a fitting, romantic gesture. The Beast savagely defending Beauty and all that, even though Beauty left him for a violin-playing twink. Brian reminds me a lot of Spike there. You could make the argument that the set-up was forced--Michael can be a thoughtless little twat, but it's hard for me to believe that he'd say that. Hal Sparks played it well though.

Had a great time with Sandy; she was balm on my fannish soreness. Maybe I will even go to the next Seattle bash. Dare I? Dare I be a peach-eater? Hmm.

I have been playing out a story in my head with Whore!Spike, where Angel kicks him out of the agency with no possessions and tells him he's unwelcome and that he'd better not bother any of the others, et cetera, and everyone is forced to go along with Angel because he's in full fury mode, as he was after the whole Wes-Connor thing, except in this AU that never happened, so Wes is one of the people who keeps silent and lets Angel kick Spike out, but months later he's bitter about it. "You're angry," Angel says when the subject comes up, after he's finally come around a bit. Wes: "Yes, I'm angry, Angel. At you, myself--you made a decision for all of us, without consulting us, and I should have called you on that. That's my job, but instead of doing it I tip-toed around you for months, fearing your temper, your disapproval. I'm not my own man. I'm your minion."

Well, that's going nowhere. I'll file it in my head under "R" for "Reams of dialogue that might have turned into cool stories that are instead lost to posterity because my head doesn't have a built-in tape recorder."

Back to work!

Hee. I love the internet.

I like your Whore!Spike idea. I especially like scenes where someone tells it like it is to Angel. Maybe it will turn into something some day...

Why do you do that to me? You open the door of curiousity and slam the door in my face. I'm all Whore!Spike (sypher drools all over self)

and then you all "Just Kidding*

Why? Why must you torment me?

I was always most interested in Ethan and Justin's take on this little event. Justin has to be awfully curious what prompted Brian to hit Michael. And in Ethan's mind, it only cements the idea that Brian is an asshole, and plants all sorts of interesting thoughts about whether Brian was ever violent toward poor Justin who must now be repressing it and isn't it good Ethan saved him from that evil monster?

I talked a bit about my own take on Michael saying what he did in my LJ a while ago, but basically I felt his resentment of Justin combined with his own guilt over "abandoning" Brian for Ben and he ended up saying something that not even he, petty and vindictive as he can be, would usually say. I have a feeling he surprised himself with it. The reason I continue to have issues with Michael is not because of what he said, but because he didn't clarify why Brian had hit him when others were laying blame, and because he only perfunctorily acknowledged later on that he deserved the punch before laying into Brian for being a bad friend.

I would like Michael much better if he didn't keep trying to pass for the "nice guy" and cashing in on Brian's "bad boy" image to score points against his supposed best friend and his supposed best friend's lover.

You could say that of a lot of what I've seen so far of S3. (I'm up to ep 8.) Maybe it's because I'm watching them so quickly, relatively speaking, and there hasn't been time for character realignments and growth to really settle in, but I find Michael off slightly for me, from previous seasons. It's bothering me. HS does it well, but it's still irritating me, like a torn piece of skin just on the edge of my thumb or something.

BTW, I'd meant to comment and kept not - competence is such a huge kink for me. In real life too. Find me a competent, capable person, someone who's master of his or her own domain (snerk), and I'm all over it. Gah. Gah gah gah.

Interestingly enough, I also feel sexiest when I feel competent.

I am so in love with that fantasy. I want Whore!Spike! I want Wesley to lay the verbal smackdown on Angel! I want violent, emotional S/A sex!

*weeps* Is that so much to ask for??
