Does anyone know of a VM icon with the caption 'I need a favour' (or something along those lines - seriously, if Veronica has a cathphrase, that's it!). Sadly I don't have the time to look through icon communities...
A few thoughts on Veronica's boyfriends. Spoilery. )
And does this new autosave thing mean that LJ is going to stop eating posts? ::crosses fingers::

Watching VM last night ('Hot Dog'? The one with dogs anyway) I was reminded of one of the most fundamental laws of TV-shows: Anything bad you ever did (or secret you kept, lie you told, etc) will come back and bite you on the @$$ sooner or later, usually at the worst time possible!

And I've been idly wondering - do the names on VM have any significance? Logan = Logan's Run?, Kane = Citizen Kane? Planets: Mars, Netune. Anything? Or is my brain just overthinking again?


For the Buffy fans:
So, why doesn't anyone go 'Oooh' and 'Aaaah' over Spike's soul in S7? Why doesn't Giles sit him down for long indepth interviews before starting to write a thesis? Why do the Scoobies not fall over themselves to be Spike's new BFF? Pardon the sarcasm, but having given it some thought...

1. I'm not sure how much they knew. Until 'Never Leave Me' not even Buffy knew anything except "I got back my soul for you". And it's not clear that she told the Scoobies even that much. In 'Him' she says: 'He has a soul now!' - and since we didn't see the scene when she told them in the first place, they were quite likely in the dark as to how he came by the soul.

2. They never really liked Angel much. In 'What's My Line' Xander says Angel is his friend, only he doesn't like him. Later, when Buffy wants to try the soul curse, Xander points out that she just want to forget about Miss Calender's murder and get her boyfriend back. They don't warm to Angel in S3, either. So enter Souled!Spike in S7, they say 'OK so he's a good guy, we'll be nice to him." But underneath it all I think they're all wondering what'll happen - Buffy already slept with him *without* a soul, so it's very likely that Buffy might gravitate towards him again. ("Why does everyone think I'm still in love with Spike?", "Buffy - I want more for you...")

3. As for Giles, he mostly sees Spike as a threat. Because of the trigger, because of Spike's attatchment to Buffy, because of Buffy's feelings 'clouding her judgment'. The world nearly ended because of Angelus and Jenny was murdered because Buffy couldn't kill him. I think that any admiration Giles might have had for Spike's feat (presuming he knew about it) would be completely overshadowed by all the potential disasters he could envisage!

VM is teh crack. Whatever will I do when we've finished watching Season 1? Anyway, now I needspoiler! )

And I *will* get round to replying to comments soon. Promise!

ETA: I should probably change my tag-line to 'Defender of unpoplar fandom opinions'. I am thisclose to writing about the alley-scene in DT. But I'm not going to. Yet anyway. (So hold your fire, OK?)

So the VM fandom kinda imploded, huh? I don't know why and I don't care. It's nice to be me. :)

Have been watching VM recently (::smooches to [livejournal.com profile] marsterslady again::) and have been enjoying it very much. But I'm easy that way - I'm like Juliet: "I shall look to like, if looking liking moves."

Putting my thoughts under a cut, not that they're very spoilery, but netiquette is a nice thing. :) )
