why did no-one tell me Methos was on Caprica? Methos is on Caprica! um, i'm glad to see the actor again, i'd missed him so. oh, Highlander, why must your last movie have been so entirely terrible?

today, what popped into my head was that a Supernatural/Heroes crossover would be most excellent (i know some already exist, but there can never be enough Supernatural/Heroes crossovers, am i right?) the hilarity of the mythologies meeting though. what would dean winchester do with a boy like peter? other than sleep with him, obviously. and then all hell breaks loose, but that's okay, because the apocalypse is already here. perhaps peter petrelli can save the world! don't laugh, okay i'm serious.

OR A HEROES/LEVERAGE X-OVER COME ON. you know, hardison would have read all the ninth-wonders comics and be delirious over the whole super-heroes come to life thing. he'd tell elliot to play nice with peter because "dude's life kind of sucks, man. like, for real." parker would sniff him and pronounce him lickable. there'd be some kind of a plot at some point, i don't know. the team can save the world! or just peter from himself. maybe they have to rescue mohinder or something, that would be fun. i secretly ship mohinder/sophie, okay. two thumbs up for the vaguely british sounding people discussing their accents and how that plus their faces means they have to beat them off with sticks. sticks, i tell you!

METHOS IS ON CAPRICA? WTF. I'm gonna have to start paying more attention to that show. I didn't know Callum Keith Rennie was on 24 this year (having bailed after the first two hours) until I happened to walk in while my daughter was watching and saw him on screen. Fandom is failing at giving me info lately. :/

METHOS IS ON CAPRICA! well to be fair so far he's only been on ten minutes of it, as some sort of DA? i think he's the DA? or a cop? SOMETHING INVOLVING THE POLICE OR THE DA'S OFFICE. but hey, he's there. i approve. i hope we see more of him. \o/

hrm. i'm not even sure what his natural accent is, to be honest. um, probably not, it's a pretty american show? is he american? i think not right?

No, he's British and unless it's improved dramatically in the last few years, his American accent is bad. But not as terrible as his Australian accent. Holy shit, that was bad.

i'm kind of terrible with western accents, sorry. i have no idea if he's meant to be british or not! doesn't sound like he did as methos though. oh hey, he's the director or something. of police? IDK! he looks good in a suit.

I have to admit that Dean/Peter is one of my favorite crossover ships. Can you imagine the kind and scope of shit these two would get into with their non-existent impulse control and rush-in-head-first-without-thinking mentality? Also, Dean would mock Peter endlessly about his emo ways and girly hair while Peter would bitch back and knew exactly what buttons to push to get Dean to do what he wanted. And they would be insanely hot together because of their non-existing impulse control.

Hmmm, I wonder if Dean would hit him back after receiving a fist to his face (because we know that Peter likes to punch people). Peter would obviously be no match for him but would Dean hit a puppy?

Eta: Okay, if you are really serious and considering this (YAY), I think the two mythologies and characters could mash pretty well. I haven't watched the last three episodes of SPN yet but one aspect this season was how disillusioned the Winchesters have become yet won't give up the fight. Peter is in a similar mindset now and I could see him throwing himself into this suicidal world saving quest as a way to cope with Nathan's loss. And Dean would shake his head but adopt him anyway.

...just as long as he doesn't try to hit SAM. co-journaller and i were discussing this, and how like, peter would probably have to get onto a box to hit gigantor, which is kind of hilarious when you think about it. okay now i have images of peter getting on like, a crate and jumping off at dean the way that my guinea pig does when he's in attack mode. it's um. kind of a strange image we shall not mention it again.

No I think that was us "discussing" Jess and Dean from Gilmore Girls being in a mutually abusive relationship, and me wondering whether Jess would have to climb Dean like a tree to facilitate punching. I WONDER WHY BE ABANDONED THAT TRAIN OF THOUGHT.

He could just hit him in the balls. He did that with Sylar, okay he kneed him in the balls when they were fighting in the hospital but it's basically the same. Also, your guinea pig sounds awesome, ahahahaha!

Man, you guys are all making me want to watch Leverage, but having looked at a few scenes on youtube, I can't get past Christian Kane's beefcake Billy Ray Cyrus look. What the hell happened to him?? I didn't even recognise him at first. Yes, he's always been a bit country, but in S2 Angel he was HOT. Now he looks like he's gained 20kg, a good third of which is hair. Noooooo! (Hardison does look twelve kinds of delicious though.)

there can never be enough Supernatural/Heroes crossovers, am i right?

That just means it is your civic duty to write some. The world depends on it! Not sure if this argument ever works - a few of us tried it on Trekker a few weeks back to get her to finish a whore!Jess M/Nathan crossover she said was languishing on her hard-drive - no fic so far! :(

But yes, spn/heroes does seem like a natural fit. I'll admit I stopped watching spn at the beginning of S4 for several reasons, but I do really love the Peter/Dean pairing. They're both just impossibly pretty and reckless. I don't read spn fic very often but I've been told top!Dean isn't the norm - gah, what a waste! I have a cliched penchant for bitchy bottom!Peter, and him and snarky Dean together is a lovely, lovely mental image. (who does Dean submit to in fic? God, please don't tell me it's that whining giant Sam. *rages*)

what would dean winchester do with a boy like peter? other than sleep with him, obviously.

You see? There you have it. Plot...um...goddammit. There can be monsters and stuff. Whatever - zombies, demons, ghosts. Vampires! I have vampires on the brain this morning. Dean can rescue Petey from an amorous vampire. The end. Oh, wait--then they fuck. The end. Bloody Shakespeare, that is.

*sigh* Of course. Please tell me Dean punches him repeatedly during it. Does this sound familiar? I have as much affection for Sam as I do for Sylar and souled Spike. Aw, no, that's not fair. I don't dislike him that much. I don't want him to die a painful death. I just...prefer it when he's not onscreen.

i can't promise anything okay

It's okay, it's okay! *fans you and feeds you grapes* Christ knows I can't condemn anyone for making RL a priority over fandom (I have a research project and a truly epic set of exams I'm meant to be working towards, and I really need to be more disciplined about things in general). And it is a pretty image. I'll just sit here and think about it for a while. While I should be studying. Dammit! I'm doing it again. :((

haha i am the only one that likes sam winchester it seems! sad! idk man he's whiny but um...he loves his brother? he wants a different life for himself? HE IS PETER PETRELLI IN REVERSE. ahem. he's not nearly as bad as sylar or souled spike, hush, you.

oh no i hope your exams go well!

Date: 2010-02-07 10:52 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] miss-miso.livejournal.com
No, he really isn't - I was being overly unkind there. Spike and Sylar are show-ruiners. Sam isn't that at all. But what do you mean about him being Peter in reverse? They share very few physical characteristics, I suppose, (the smaller frame and big vulnerable eyes went to Peter and Dean, didn't they) and I guess Peter is portrayed as the reckless 'black sheep' whereas Sam had a more thoughtful approach to life. Or am I missing something about the last two seasons that's more relevant?

Actually, that's pretty likely, given how long it's been since I've watched the show. I get what you're saying about finding spn too hard to write, for that reason - if you went too much into the show mythology, I probably wouldn't understand it either! I'll keep dreaming of Dean/Peter PWP with vampires and hair pulling. It keeps me warm.

From: [identity profile] mumblemutter.livejournal.com
oh not physically? but in his own way sam is also the black sheep of the family? basically he wanted an ordinary life (the girlfriend, law school, corporate career, etc.) while his entire family worked on being "special", saving people, hunting things, etc. peter on the other hand would have been extremely happy i feel to be raised a hunter so he could go and save lives. it's entirely possible they were switched at birth! or not, but you know.

Date: 2010-02-08 10:06 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] miss-miso.livejournal.com
Oh, yes! I'd forgotten that Sam's law school gig wasn't something John approved of (although I think he and Dean were secretly super proud of him? Aww). Haha, you're right, maybe they would have done better if they'd swapped families. I was going to say I wouldn't wish Arthur Petrelli on anyone as a father, but he was nice to Nathan so maybe Sam would have been fine. And Claire would have had someone closer to her age to crush on (albeit from a much greater distance, height wise). Everyone would be happy!

oh ahaha you know i once saw milo v and alexis and jared give out an award on youtube? and alexis and milo are roughly the same height+build, and jared just towered over both of them. it was ridiculous! imagine him with claire. although hey, claire will probably go for the boys that remind her of her dad right? jared certainly has the height for it.

also i would totally read a switched-at-birth fic if we could magically age sam up a couple of years. and then they realize sam is half-demon (because the yellow-eyed demon wants THAT child, not the petrelli one), and peter has superpowers. somehow, obviously, this all becomes about nathan and peter. although possibly peter would be called sam? but i feel he should be called peter winchester or else it's just confusing.

Oh no no, you have to give it a chance! Eliot will grow on you. Everyone on this damn show will grow on you! I don't even know why we started watching, and I remember thinking of it as the poor man's "Eyes" (which lasted one season and was awesome), but then suddenly I loved everyone. They are such a TEAM. Who love each other and got each other's back and put up with each other's bullshit, to a point, and they're all kind of broken in subtle ways, but they're a FAMILY and it is AWESOME.

There's nothing I can say about Eliot's hair, however. We kind of love it. It should come up with its own zip code.

Eliot grew on me too! I was really hoping to love Hardison/Eliot (why do I think this way at all WHY) before watching the pilot, because of what I'd heard about the show, but his entire look just sort of didn't work for me at all. And now (halfway into season 1), I LOVE ELIOT and his hair. Although Hardison is my fave too. I just saw the ep in which he's got that awesome hat on (in your icon) &hearts

eliiiot. i don't know, there's not a single member of the team that i hate. that is so rare! but i feel that like, they all have their different roles and they support one another and it's this adorable, dysfunctional family and you just know you'd get cut if you dared do something bad to one of them. love them so much.

ps. eliot's hair gets far, far better in s2. that's not really a spoiler, just a heads up in case its um, general untidiness annoys you like it did me. i can't stand messy hair!

I don't mind untidy hair! I just was struck with a terrible kind of embarassment when I began to think that Eliot's hair is actually kinda pretty.

It reminded me of this ridiculous lol-worthy show I used to watch when I was a kid, 'Renegade' ... here, you will see what I mean:

noo but elliot is a thug with a heart of gold! don't hate on him! also the hair in season two is AMAZING. it's better than any girl's hair on the show, i won't like. it has bounce and curl and shine.

From: [identity profile] miss-miso.livejournal.com
Ok, then in all fairness I should tell you I watched the first episode last night, and I LOVED it. They're right - everyone is right. I reserve my judgment on Kane (Eliot) because in addition to his god-awful hair I'm having a problem with him small-mouthed way of speaking and emoting, and he really has gone beefacke (shades of DB after S3 Buffy - sigh), but none of that actually matters because it was delightful. It's light and breezy and entertaining, and Hardison is positively scrumptious (he had me at "this is not the room you're looking for ~jedi hand wave~). I'm not sure it's the sort of show that inspires obsessive fangirling (well, not for me, anyway), but maybe that's a good thing? I'll probably never love anything as much as I love Heroes, and thank god for that, because it's bloody hard work.

Also, cm, re Sophie's accent - I knew there was something up with it when I heard her 'Africaans' one. Some of the inflections sounded familiar, and, yep. You probably know this already, but I wasn't surprised to find out she's a New Zealander. A NZer who moved to the UK at age eleven, apparently, so at least half of that accent is legit, but she obviously has to work hard to round her vowels and lets it slip on occasion.

In conclusion: Leverage is awesome! I should have listened to cadesama when she told me to check it out months ago.

ah, that explains it then. also almost all of her accents are terrible, and you know i kind of choose to believe that everyone on the cast/crew, including herself, is aware of that, and they mostly use it like "well it's not like americans (their marks) KNOW the difference between a french accent and a german one anyway so who cares?" which is possibly true!

and no, i don't think it inspires true madness. if only it did, i'd so be there right now instead of in the heroes fandom, sigh.

Wahhhh. I want this story! Can we have Nathan in there too? He and Nate could try to intimidate each other and Nathan would try to take over the operation (um, he would win). And since we're bringing people back to life, the team could go up against dear old Linderman and take all his money!!!

oh god yes really please. nathan and nathan can have a little dick measuring contest, it'd be awesome. i mean right now it's entirely nate+sophie as like the parental figures and the trio as the "kids"? now it'll be nate+sophie+nathan and then peter+parker+hardison+eliot will be like, an entire gang of smushy love. although i honestly feel that nathan would beat nate hands down? but sophie would tear him to pieces with one well placed eyebrow raise. you do not want to mess with the grifter, nathan.

they should totally go up against linderman omg it would be fabulous.

Oh, no I meant that *Nathan* would win. Not Nate. Easy. Nathan just has to do his blink - you know that one. And say that he drinks espressos, not lattes.

Aw, Peter and Parker (hee) would be such bffs. She would totally open up with him, and Hardison could be jealous. And I think Peter would have a crush on Eliot ... maybe. And Nathan would get jealous. (This story would suck actually ... they'd all just be fighting over Peter most of the time, and he'd have no idea what he'd done wrong).

To be honest -- I don't really like Sophie. I don't dislike her, but I find her sort of exaggerated, very often? And um, she sort of has dead eyes. I'm sorry!

Date: 2010-02-07 07:04 pm (UTC)

oh yes, yes. and nate would be like "i can do horrible accents and that's about it" and nathan would "hrm" and turn away, and that would be that.

PETER PARKER SERIOUSLY. it's like they want us to write fic about them omg. also aww, no fighting guys. maybe they can time-share peter? or maybe eliot can hook up with nathan at some point, just because nathan wants to spite peter. and also because eliot has awesome hair. i don't know i would read it.

!!! blasphemy! *clings to sophie* uh, i guess she grows on you by the end? or not, that's okay too! i do enjoy the fact that the actress is older than thirty, and that usually does it for me. um i'm shallow, hi.
