Tumblring & Shipping - They Are Verbs.  
So, Tumblring is going pretty well. I don’t like it quite as much as I thought I would, but I mostly think this is a balance issue. I used to just scroll random tags while I watched TV, in a leisurely way. Now I’m like, “Should I ‘like’ this or ‘reblog’ this?” and I have to think about it. I just need time to get my rhythm. It’s also really weird to blog like 8 things a day. I mean, it takes like 90 seconds to reblog, but still, it’s weird to see how many posts I have when I am used to LJ. It just takes some time to get used to, I guess. It took me awhile just to get over my anxiety about getting one in the first place, so I suspect it’ll take me awhile to get comfortable there. (I have weird anxieties about weird things. Don’t even talk to me about getting an AO3 account. It’s in my processing data bank in my mind but I am nowhere near ready for that one).

It is a great look inside my head though. I started on Hobbit Day and then I reblogged some things on a friend’s blog plus I was in the Bob’s Burger tag for a quick second and then I followed the day’s trending tags and then I was watching NCIS: LA - so it kind of went like 5 hobbit things (2 of which were my original content) and then one for Pacific Rim, food, Peter Pan movie, Buffy, Bob’s Burger, Sleepy Hollow, baby photo, Cas gif and then like 6 various things for Jim Henson’s birthday and about six NCIS: LA things. So if you were wondering what the inside of my head looks like…there you have it. And that’s me being restrained. I already got like half a dozen likes and a couple reblogs though. My hobbit images got a couple reblogs even!

Okay, let’s talk TV.
NCIS: LA - I can’t even with that show right now. OMG. First of all - Sam, that’s Deeks’ job and he’s a goddamn professional and fuck you, cuz he’d pay that price all over again - that’s what partners do. Also, omg, I used to hate Deeks so fucking much when he first came on the show and now he’s my boo. I love him and I hurt for him and it was beautiful and I will now clutch him to my chest. I know a part of it is wanting to see Kensi get some action, cuz hot damn that girl, hot like hell, but I need Kensi/Deeks like burning. I hate cop-type shows that have partners or team members hook-up, it pisses me off so much - but I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE SO HARD - and that should tell you how much I ship them because it goes against all of my principles!

Agents of Shield - As per usual, the lead is my least favorite, but even so…I still really liked him, which just means I liked everyone else a whole lot. COULSON. I don’t even have words. What do they mean ‘he can never find out’? WHAT DID THEY DO TO PHIL?! Also, as my sister said, “Gunn, you were always a superhero to us.” I kind of felt like crying every time J August was on screen, just because I missed him so goddamn much. Ming Na being all “won’t take Coulson’s shit’ was awesome and I really like the van-girl (or as my sister called her, ‘New Faith’). New Faith is quite awesome and the only downside to how awesome she is that I was holding out the slightest hope that we might get Darcy Lewis on here someday (when she is available, of course) but New Faith kind of fills that role. Fitz-Simmons are adorable and everything about everything was awesome. The pilot didn’t blow me away but it was really, really good and solid. I really like the way they gave them a bad group to be chasing after, as well.

Alright, off to catch up on more things!

I completely enjoyed Agents of SHIELD, but I think with the way they hyped it so much, it almost had to not quite live up to things. I heard a rumor that Whedon had tried to get a two-hour pilot - can you imagine the complete awesome that would have been???

Yes, that and the way we had built it up in our own minds. There was no way it was going to be as good as the build-up. But it was solid and it laid out the premise of the show for us in the way that pilots are suppose too and, you know plus, AGENT COULSON. I liked Melinda May (need more of her in the next episode, really interested in her back story) and more Van-Girl, cuz I liked them both the most (except for Coulson, obvs). I hope they flesh out the lead guy though because he is kind of one dimensional atm.

YES I CAN. It would have been a MOVIE on our TVs. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN 'AGENT COULSON' THE MOVIE!!!

I liked van-girl at first, but in the course of one episode she went all Mary Sueish. Bleah. Agreed on needing more for lead guy and Melinda May, though.

I would have fallen at the feet of and worshipped a Coulson movie!

Shield! Weee! As you say, I wasn't blown away either, but I liked it, and I'm looking forward to seeing what they do with it. Coulson was awesome, I loved New Faith (good name, btw!) and Fitz-Simmons was aaaaaaw.

I kind of felt like crying every time J August was on screen, just because I missed him so goddamn much.

Me toooooo! *sniffles* I just wanted to hug him and tell him I was happy to see him.

Can't wait to get to know these characters better!

(Icon kind of almost fits. Do I need Shield icon now?)

It's solid and fun and has 'Whedon' written all over it, which is nice. But I think I was trying to hold it up to the level of the Avengers movie or something and that's just not fair.

Coulson was awesome, I loved New Faith (good name, btw!) and Fitz-Simmons was aaaaaaw.

In the latest episode (no spoilers here, I swear) Coulson is still badass and sexy, but I disliked New Faith or the way they had her play out in it. I don't want to say too much in case you haven't seen it yet but I'd be interested to know how you felt about her in the second ep. (I did like the direction they took her at the end of the ep though because it at least made her more interesting). Fitz is quickly becoming my new favorite.

Me toooooo! *sniffles* I just wanted to hug him and tell him I was happy to see him.

I really, really hope they bring that character back at some point, for another ep or two. More J August on our screens, please!

Can't wait to get to know these characters better!

They fleshed them out a little more in the 2nd ep, but I want more origins on them, backstory, all the meaty good stuff we get in Marvel comics.

(Icon kind of almost fits. Do I need Shield icon now?)

I think you do! Or at least a Coulson icon. This is my 'avengers verse' icon and it works well, but I figure at some point I'm still going to have to get a SHIELD icon.

So...how about the end of the 2nd ep? How'd you like that?
