Media Meme!  
I finished another book! I'm already reading a new book! (A re-read of Catching Fire). I'd like to finish it before we see the movie this weekend, but I probably won't get all the way through. I just hit the spot where they enter the arena, so yeah, I've been crying for the last half hour. These fucking books kill me every damn time. And I haven't even gotten over the massive feels from my last book yet! Anyways...here we go:

1. What was the last book you read? - Birthright...and it's companion, Another Brick In The Wall. (Technically, it's a fanfic, but not in my head. 700+ pages, in paperback form, it's a book. Right?)
2. What was the last TV show you watched? - American Horror Story: Coven. (Season 3 is the best by far! Witches!)
3. What was the last movie you watched? - Clueless. (For the 127-ish time, but who gets tired of Clueless?)
4. What was the last album you listened to? - Community 101. (a Community fanmix).
5. What was the last video game you played? - Uh, Hidden Objects 'Monsters'?
Bonus Round: What was the last fanfic you read? Creaking Floorboards, a Viggo/Sean piece. Or possibly, Enjoy The Silence, a Chuck/Mako/Raleigh piece. (I highly recommend them both!)

Wait...there's a Pirates of the Caribbean TV show? Or is it like a reality-documentary about actual pirates?

Classic. Belle is such a fangirl at heart!

I've never really watched the original NCIS (I think we've talked about this) but I am into NCIS:LA. However, I know a couple of people who either got into NCIS via the fanfic or quit the show but still continue to read the fic. They say the fanfic for NCIS is a glorious spread.

i just wrote this whole long reply and the freaking thing didn't post grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

1. kgi series is great, i also read her colter's stories. there both so far apart but awesome at the same time.
http://mayabanks.com/books/main.php#connected-kgi

i'll look and see if i have the first couple and send them to you if you want. colter's is ebooks. i used to have hundreds of books no lie but when i moved i had to get rid of them so now i don't keep them. i don't have room any more. i just started going to the library i think i'll be doing more of that for print books instead of buying them, but i do love my ebooks lol.

2 documentary, on smithsonian channel.

http://www.smithsonianchannel.com/sc/web/series/679/the-real-story

it's a good series if you get the channel, they have such a varied list of stories. lately i'm been watch that and history & histroy 2. never really was into history before but i'm really liking it now.


bonus. i watched ncis for a bunch of years then stopped for like a season and half, saw one of the missed episdoes went back caught up and have watched since. i never watched ncis la every once in a while but i couldn't tell you anythhing about the series on a whole. i just stumbled on ncis big bang and was like wow nice. gibbs/dinozzo are both smokin hot guys and the authors are just writing them great. i'm kinda getting blah about j2 stories. i started reading fanfic when i was broke, i figured free stories hell yeah. i started with loth, i had just watched all 3 movies in one day so i was pumped when i found the fic. i'm kinda all over on my reading anyway. tofay i could read a sweet harliquin book tomorrrow a hard core sm gay book lol.

I hate when that happens!! :0

I just followed your link and read up about the KGI series and it does sound very interesting! Thanks for the offer of your books, but I am sure I can get it at my library (we have a really good inter-connected library system in my county). After I read the twenty books I have stacked up that I borrowed from people ages ago and still haven't made it through the stack. Eep. No more borrowing books or buying books or getting books from the library until I finish them! That's my plan.

2 documentary, on smithsonian channel.

Huh, I didn't even know there was a Smithsonian channel. I don't think we get that. Maybe netflix will have it available to stream though.

Did you watch The History Channel's original series 'Vikings' last year? Series 2 premieres in January so I am sure they will rerun the first season before that. If you are getting into history things but also want some fictionalized romances/friendships, (with hotties) you should check it out. I am excited for S2!

i'm kinda getting blah about j2 stories.

I have been lately as well. CW RPS in general, but also J2 in particular. There is one author that I still read her J2 fic because it's always AU and funny and sweet (dugindeep) and because we are friends, but otherwise I haven't read any J2 in months. (I still post some here and there but it's mostly fic that I wrote awhile ago and am just now cleaning up and posting). Honestly, with as much as I jump all over the place in my fic reading, it's a miracle I stayed with J2 for as long as I did.

What fandoms are you reading in now besides NCIS?

yeah i had a bunch of books to read and kept adding. i was adding faster than i could read. i've gotten so much better with only having one room to live in lol.

didn't watch viking's, i'll give it a peek see what it's about. thanks.

i only have a few writers in J2 i'm still reading.. one or two in LOTR, a few in NCIS & a few in hawaii 5o. i didn't want to start anything new but that didn't work lol.

i seem to go thru phases of kink to. like today it's one thing a couple weeks later i'll skim right past a story with the same kink.
