10 Ships that ruled 2012

These are not my favorite ships (although some of my favs did make the list), these are the ships that I think have had the most impact this year. These ships either have super active fandoms, win all the polls, are the most talked or simply have the most potential. That said, I’m not an impartial observer and I don’t pretend to be – this list comes from my own observations and it’s the best that I can come up with when I have a killer hangover.

Re-watch and recap: Teen Wolf 2012/2013

Right, I'm in Australia (aka I'm from the future) and I hate to say this but looks as though the apocalypse is just not going to happen... which means you're probably going to have to have a bit of free time of the holiday break. Because I'm a nice person, and I'm also incredibly bored/procrastinating life I have decided to do a Teen Wolf re-watch. You know Teen Wolf, that show that has taken over my life and this blog. If you are not already a member of our ever growing wolf pack now is the perfect time for you fall down the rabbit hole and loose yourself to the wonder that is Teen Wolf

I'm going to recapping each episode as I go along as well as live blogging on Twitter (and possibly Tumblr and be sure to join the conversation on the Facebook page and in the comments. Right well I'm off to watch "Wolf's Moon" - let's get this party started. 

Top 10 Christmas Movies

It’s that time of year again, where we deck the halls, try to be merry and hope to catch that special someone under the mistletoe (although I have never actually seen mistletoe so I am starting to think it’s an urban myth). Anyway last year I counted down my favourite Christmas television episodes and specials, this year I thought why not give the feature films a go. This list is hardly original and I highly doubt anyone will be shocked by the films that made the cut but I wanted to spread some holiday cheer so this is happening and you will like it or you will be on my naughty list (which is not nearly as fun as it sounds).

Shipping News: It's a metaphor for lesbian sex... also is that Stiles with a girl?

This week’s Shipping News comes to you a little bit late because I have been pimping my services to After Elton for the week… you can read about the news of all things slash here. Never fear though because I’m back and we have so much to talk about, including magical lesbians, Winchester jealousy, Delena sex (FINALLY) and a certain grainy pic has the Sterek fandom going crazy.

Fangirl 101: Queer Baiting vs. Ship Teasing

I wrote a basic and very vague definition of queer baiting a couple of months ago, and while it’s a fair description of the problem it seems that people are more and more throwing the term queerbaiting around when in actual fact what they mean is ship teasing. There is some cross over between the terms of course, but it’s important to remember that ship teasing is not automatically queer baiting when it involves same sex couplings.

Top 5 Movies of 2012

My lovely friend Rach, who recently asked me to compile a list of the best Skins moments, has set me another challenge – what are my favourite movies of 2012. As 2012 is not yet over, I know it’s almost the end but The Hobbit is coming out and that will hopefully make it’s way into any 2012 lists, it’s not a definitive list… but it’s the best I can do at the moment.

Top 10 Skins Moments

One of my best friends has recently gotten addicted to the Skins youtube channel – it happens – and she sent me this video, a Top 5 Skins moments, and asked me to give me my top 5 moments… because I figure more is actually more I am going to give you my top 10 moments (also because it’s kind of a theme on this blog). It’s taken me a while (and a re-watch) to compile this list but I hope you enjoy my Top 10 Skins Moments.

Let’s Talk about Glee, Baby: My Girlfriend’s Back and You’re Gonna be in Trouble

She’s back – I am of course talking about the amazing Miss Quinn Fabray. Those of you that are new here might not be aware of my obsession with this character… all I can say is that all will become clear soon enough. This week nostalgia for the holidays, sectionals drama and I’m thankful for the lovely Dianna Agron.

A Shipping News Special: It’s Hys-STEREK-cal!

Those of you inside the Teen Wolf fandom might be wondering… are we actually going to talk about this? Generally I shy away from confrontation whenever possible but this time the answer is yes, we are going to talk about this. For those of you are that are not part of the pack, the Teen Wolf fandom has been experiencing a little bit of what I like to call hiatus hysteria (or in this case hys-sterek-a).

UndieGirl talks Tropes: The Love Interest

The love interest – basically it does what it says on the box, because the love interest’s sole purpose is to be romantically connected to one of the main characters of whatever television show, movie, book or comic you’re looking at. Occasionally he or more likely she actually develops into something more but most of the time this character is simply a series of stereotypes with a pretty face.  As a romantic subplot is expected in most stories this trope is fairly prevalent but sometimes it would be nice if they ignored the love story completely rather than included these shallow characters.
