I used to have a life - lol. Okay, 94 screencaps of the S4 trailer. SO lovely. I still have...absolutely no clue what's going on, even in much slower time but I think this ad covers more than the first episode. I think. I cannot thank CS Designs enough for capturing this at such a high quality. I also did this before I saw that Yvonne had already capped 40 - lol.

Anyway. S4 Promo screencaps. Some under cut. Much much much much much more at: S4 Promo Caps PW: Rachel

Review of Promo in Screencaps. Very image intensive.

I try to get out...and they keep pulling me back in. )

"Stay here," he whispered and tugged on her wrist as she tried to slip out of bed.

She laughed, "I can't. The President is going to be in Oregon tomorrow and I have to be there."


She couldn't believe it. Her husband, a former congressman and current college professor was almost whining.

"I'm going to pretend you didn't just ask me that, Bill."

He slid one hand up her arm. "Just another hour, Lynne." The other went around her waist, pulling her closer.

"Plane leaves in two. I need to be on it."

He sighed and let her go.

"I'll call you as soon as I can."

He caressed her cheek. "I might be in class."

"Phone date tomorrow night?"

Bill nodded and sighed. "At least I know you'll be in a safe place."

"Air Force One and then the house. Many guards. Lots of cameras. Nothing to fear." Lynne leaned in for a quick kiss. "I'll only be gone for one day this time. I'll be back by Sunday morning."

(Sidenote: My body is angry at me. I don't know why. So I'm kind of in a bad mood right now).

As everyone knows I love 24 fic. I even adore it. However, I've noticed yet another disturbing trend in 24 fic that I've seen in lots of other fandoms but kind of hoped would not show up here. This one is not as insane as "Jack's other daughter" but it is one of my personal pet peeves. I call it "Jack's abusive childhood".

Recently, I've noticed a few stories alluding to Jack's past that well...keep mentioning things like him being beaten by his step-father or actual father, losing his parents at a young age, being shot/stabbed as a teenager and many other things that basically equal "Jack's abusive childhood."

I'm not sure why people feel the need to give him such a painful back story or why it's important that he did things like "hide under the bed to avoid his father's (or step father's) fists" (a paraphrase of a line in an actual fic). I'd think that just the things we've seen on the show would provide enough angst for anyone without adding on extra baggage.

24 is, in general, a show where we don't know about people's childhoods or really much about their lives before we meet them. It's a real time show that also very much exists in the present. Unlike XF with its long back stories and childhood traumas, the characters on 24 don't mention growing up. People aren't dealing with past demons from when they were younger, they're dealing with current situations.

I admit there's nothing in canon to disprove the abusive childhood thesis so unlike "Jack's other child" it's not against canon - but, I think that from what we've seen of the character and his interactions with's just very hard for me to believe.

I also don't think he lost his parents at an early age. I don't think this because if he had, Teri's death would have been upsetting, but it wouldn't have completely crushed/destroyed him. In my view, pre-s1 Jack is a guy who'd had a pretty normal childhood and had no real idea of the horrors of the world until he joined the military.

I could always be proved wrong. But, this is one of my pet peeves. At least with XF, you had some canon basis (even if that trend also bothered me). I just think too many authors need to give characters deep traumatic pasts. I noticed it in a Michelle story too, they had to make her a survivor of a violent act.

It's something that was very common in XF - people would write very long disturbing stories about Mulder's abusive childhood. But as I said, even though I didn't like the stories there was some evidence to back up that theory.

I'm very interested in hearing what everyone else thinks.

Okay after talking about making a 24 fan video for...well months now I finally dl'd some software took a song and some eps and yes...made one. Once I started I couldn't stop.

This is kinda a very very very very early birthday present for Saffy whenever she comes back since she introduced me to this band.

It's a song called Apocalpyse Please by Muse. And I think it really fits the hotel arc. Actually, that's how she introduced it to me, like "This song is so season three!" But it is.

It comes in 2 yummy flavors: (From so DL now before it disappears!)

These are both .wmv format. (I think they play on Mac, not sure).

1) Low-bandwith (4 meg version): Hotel Arc video-low bandwith

2) High-bandwith (10 meg version): Hotel Arc video-high bandwith

Icon by [ profile] _dreamoutloud_ that has nothing to do with video but the last time I did any kind of editing was in December so it does feel weird to be doing it again.

and yeah it's 9 am...maybe I should try sleeping.

I read two great fics today. Entirely different genres and purposes. Both were really well written and I highly rec.

1) Homecoming by Kay Homecoming. T/M post-s3 angst filled fic. Fantastic and amazing barely cover it. I beta'd but I'd recommend it even if I'd never heard of the author. The details and the way she really brings Tony and Michelle to life - it's an absolute must read.

2) Blurred by Samantha Blurred This is something completely different. Post-s3. Extreme Darkfic. Jack POV. Short but really packs a punch. Gorgeous writing. One more spoilery thing spoiler for finale )

Okay *now* to sleep.
