 I mean seriously, this show! It killed me, flat dead, no doubt. 

It's odd because i've never really liked war films/television because to be honest it all goes over my head and makes my brain hurt trying to follow what the hells going on. I think the only one i remember watching of my accord was Saving Private Ryan and the rest were snippets of things my dad watches. I only went out and bought The Pacific because it has Joe Mazzello in it (i'm a Social Network addict right now, i'm devouring anything that has any member of that cast in it, to the point i'm seriously eying up my brothers jurassic park tape...but i digress). So i went and  bought it, had next to no hope i was going to like it beyond fangirling at Joe but was surprised by how much i loved it!

There are no words. It was so terribly painful too watch and so amazingly wonderful at the same time. I mean i know wars are not glamourous, but this show really kicked me in the teeth with how horrific it was. I think i spent the entire series in a mild state of horror because how can real people have gone through that? It doesn't seem possible to me. 

The cast were amazing. Like every single one of them had me aching for them at one point or another. I loved Leckie right from the first episode. I think Snafu is the most badass guy ever and so beautifully damaged (just how i like my characters..that sounds mean since he was a real person :S) Sledge! omg, Sledge *cries*. I went into this knowing i would probably be more interested in whoever Joe played simply because it was him but i think i'd of loved Sledge's story no matter what. My poor baby :( He killed me the most, how he went from this sweet boy to a toughened solider to completely breaking down. I think Joe did a terrific job at portraying him (as did every actor/actress with their role). His scenes in the last episode, especially the hunting one, i legitimately cried. 

I've watched this series twice now and fully intend to rewatch it again very soon. It was so in your face but in the best way. It didn't pull any punches, didn't try and hide things from you. It showed just how awlful that war was. You come away with a great sense of hurt and fear for these people. knowing they have to live with it and that some never made it out. I think all war is a terrible loss of human life but this show, it made me tear up how true that really is. 

GAH! Just, yeah lol

Also, there is so not enough fanfic for it! Like seriously, i could find barely anything at all and i'm actually craving it so much! What i have read is amazingly brilliant but i really want more lol. I tried my hardest not to develop a ship for this show. I don't know why but it felt.. disrespectful? because these were real people who went through the war, but really there is no way to watch it without being blindsided by Sledge/Snafu floor show. I cracked, i ship them like woah. They spend the entire series with this long looks and smoldeirng over cigarettes, constantly pulling eachother out of fire and such. I'm going to special hell i'm sure of it. (somehow i regret nothing :P)

I thought i'd share that with my non existant f-list :P Has anyone else seen this? I need someone to flail to! :D

I may have to write something myself for this as well. I say may, i already started.. sorta. 
In a moment of oddery, i was stuck on trying to find a plot, my dad was sitting in the living room with me and saw me staring at a blank page, ever the helpful (read:sarcastic) one, he told me to write 'once upon a time...' to which i scoffed and then got told 'well once upon twice a time.' This shouldn't be a plot bunny people! this shouldn't have had ideas pinging around my head! It's a nonsense phrase. Sadly i instantly jotted down two pages with that as the starting line. I didn't tell my dad, his ego couldn'y stand it. I imagine a Pacific slash story was the last place he thought that sentence would go....

I also started a video for Sledge/Snafu. I have dubious hope of it's completion. 

It's prompted me to go and buy the books to go with series as well. I got With The Old Breed by Eugene Sledge which was the main inspiration for the series and i've read maybe a quarter and am in love with it. It's written in a completely honest, no fanfare way that somehow manages to seem a deep encompassing well of emotion. I also got Helmet For My Pillow by Robert Leckie and that looks promising. The companion novel is dauting. It's so huge! I'm gonna leave that till last because i imagine it's going to confuse me with war jargon all over the place lol. 

I'm rambling for the sake of rambling now because i'm bored. And lonely. I need to make friends on here somehow. :(

Title: Middle Ground
Fandom: The Social Network
Warnings:
Slash
Summary: The choice is there, hanging over everything now, festering like an open wound over every word you say to each other, every time you touch.
Disclaimer: I own nothing, it's just fun to play with.
Note: First Mark/Eduardo. I am in love with them :D I don't even know what this is. I rambled on paper and this happened. I don't even know whose pov it is so feel free to imagine what you like, i think it prob works as them both, though i do lean towards one more than the other, let me know who you think of :)


The middle is dangerous. It's not far enough in that they've left the 'fucking like we'll die if we don't' stage but still far enough that feelings have started to creep in.  Collapse )

Title: Lullaby
Fandom: The Social Network
Warnings: Maybe sorta pre-slash.
Summary: Inspired by this prompt at the kinkmeme. Justin sings Jesse to sleep.
Disclaimer: I own nothing, it's just fun to play with.
Note: First story in this fandom and honestly, i'm terrified. There are so many good writers in this fandom already! Also, ive been obsessed with Mark/Eduardo and yet my first fic is a Justin/Jesse? :S I've also never done a RPF either. I've never seen a story with this pairing either but i love the idea of it :D


“Jesse, you sound wrecked.” Jesse snorted into his phone, shuffling his knees up closer to his chest. “Thanks, you know I love your sparkling compliments.” Collapse )

Found this on someone's journal under another fandom. Was bored so did a Social Network version. 


List twelve of your characters from your fandom, in no particular order.

1. Dustin

2. Eduardo

3. Cameron

4. Christy

5. Mark

6. Chicken

7. Alice

8. Sean

9. Chris

10. Tyler

11. Divya

12. Erica

Chicken, seriously self. There aren't enough characters in this fandom! 


1. Have you ever read a Six/Eleven fic? Do you want to?

chicken/divya. oh dear, cant.stop.laughing

2. Do you think Four is hot? How hot?

Christy. Brenda Song, she's gorgeous

3. What would happen if Twelve got Eight pregnant?

Erica getting Sean pregnant. I'd laugh manically, Sean deserves the pain! :D

4. Can you recall any fics about Nine?

Chris. Oh plenty :)

5. Would Two and Six make a good couple?

Eduardo/Chicken. HA! Oh lord, that's funny on so many levels.

6. Five/Nine or Five/Ten? Why?

Mark/Chris or Mark/Tyler. MARK/CHRIS! I want this, no one writes it :(

7. What would happen if Seven walked in on Two and Twelve having sex?

If Alice walked in on Eduardo and Erica. Don't think she's understand the betrayal lol

8. Make up a summary for a Three/Ten fic.

Cameron/Tyler : I can't even, *insert cliche twin/incest summary* Kinda funny :)

9. Is there any such thing as One/Eight fluff?

Dustin/Sean. I doubt it, i imagine Dustin is too clever to fall for Seans crap.

10. Suggest a title for a Seven/Twelve hurt/comfort fic.

Alice/Erica (Ooo i got this!) The Two Exes! (hehe)

11. If you wrote a songfic about Eight, what song would you choose?

Sean. Erm, i dunno, like really don't have a clue.

12. If you wrote a One/Six/Twelve fic, what would the warning be?

Dustin/Chicken/Erica. Ha, erm, CAUTION; Fic likely to be complete crack and contain much mocking at Mark's expense.

13. When was the last time you read a fic about Five?

Mark. Like, 5 minutes ago? YTSNKinkMeme, i'm addicted :)

14. "(1) and (7) are in a happy relationship until (7) runs off with (4). (1), brokenhearted, has a hot one-night stand with (11) and a brief unhappy affair with (12), then follows the wise advice of (5) and finds true love with (3).”

"Dustin and Alice are in a happy relationship until Alice runs off with Christy. Dustin, brokenhearted, has a hot one-night stand with Divya and a brief unhappy affair withErica, then follows the wise advice of Mark and finds true love with Cameron.

Oh dear, there so many things wrong with that paragraph. I doubt Marks wiseness if he's giving that advice!

 So I've made a separate blog so i can keep this one for fanfics etc (the few i write anymore, this is getting bad really). 

Presenting.... AFarAwaySpark

This new one is for anything and everything, whatever pops into my mind. It'll be used for anything from film reviews, tv show talks, book reviews to gossip, current events, news stories, semi intelligent rants etc. Basically whatever i feel like writing at the time. 

And I'm going to take requests! Ask me to talk about something, anything, surprise me :D

I would be so grateful if the few followers i have would take a look and pass my blog around, I'm dying to make some new friends :)

There's not much there right now and maybe most won't be interested in what's said so far, that's fine, let me know what you would be interested in seeing *nudge*. 

Okay, enough rambling, Please come looksie :)

My poor poor livejournal has been so neglected. I feel bad for it, left here with no one paying any attention to it. Well i decided since i was bored to give it a good clean out and freshen up, ready to use again in the new year. So all the old, boring entries have been deleted, the posts all properly tagged and the layout changed with a shiny new header and icons.. Michael Weatherly...*is distracted by the pretty*..

Anyway, HELLO! :D

Okay so some useful links first since i'm hoping to guide people here from many places as really, livejournal is much easier to use than other sites (more pretty too).

YOUTUBE : SparkOfCyanide : I have quite a video obession and make them on everything (including but not limited to Star Trek, Merlin, Dark Angel, Ncis and Random Films). I do take suggestions but i can't promise i will finish a result.
Note: I currently am on a break from vidding as i broke my laptop and the main computer doesn't have Vegas, hopefully i will rectify this soon!

FANFICTION: LoveWithoutLimits : I adore fanfictions! I have 50 on there atm. Admittedly i haven't written in a while but i plan to again... sometime lol. I write in fandoms such as Star Trek, Merlin, Supernatural, Harry Potter, Charmed and Covenant. Again, i take requests and actually right now i could do with some ideas :D

TWITTER: SparkOfCyanide : I've never really used this much because i don't have any followers but i may have to start, it looks sorta fun. Link me up if you want me to follow you :)

Now that's done i would like to wish everyone a very merry Christmas. I hope you all have wonderful days and get everything you wish for. Have fun, be safe and be happy :)
