I've been having a pretty lazy weekend. I'd read the first two books of the Stargate: Atlantis Legacy series quite some time ago. Wasn't wowed by them, though now I no longer remember details. Picked Book 3 out of my stack and decided it was time, so sat and read for a while. Relatively enjoyable, though I am disconcerted every time Richard Woolsey is referred to as Dick, and vaguely annoyed that a plot point separates John and Rodney, my OTP, whom I want to see interacting and bantering, this is the heart of the show for me. For some reason, I flipped forward to the end of the book, which I don't normally do, and look, there is a reference that makes it clear that there is a fourth book and John and Rodney are still separated in it.

*sigh*

Do I have fourth book? Did I get it when I just used to buy every new book? Go off to my stack of unread books, and yes, I have Book 4. And look, Book 5. And oh my, Book 6.

Could the TPTB be more annoying than to develop a six book series where it looks like my OTP will be in two different locations and not even communicating for the majority of the time? It's possible they could be united earlier, but I'm guessing it'll be Book 6.

This is why I love fanfic. It knows to focus on the flipping pairing.

Speaking of fanfic, I started watching Emerald City this weekend and have gone through four episodes already. I may close to binge-watch, which I don't normally do. But talk about a fanfic AU! Dorothy was a teenager, let's make her an adult, her main sidekick was a scarecrow who wanted a brain, let's make him a guy with memory problems.

Small weird thing... Adult Dorothy is a nurse, who finds two people gravely wounded before she gets swept up in the tornado, and does mention a few times wanting to go home but never says anything about needing to save those people. Seriously, it feels like one of those fanfic things, where the author found the canon (Dorothy constantly wanting to go home) overdone and annoying, so swings the other way too far and barely has her mention it. Really, she's a nurse. She should be concerned about being swept away from the bleeding people.

Fandom and fannish reactions are everywhere!

Animal Planet has a new show, Expedition Mungo. You should watch at least the first few minutes of the first episode. To the point where he mentions his local contact by name. I laughed and thought of you.

I've been wondering about that show! The clips I saw looked amazing.

It's very River Monsters-y. He's got a 'mystery' animal to go looking for. There's more behind the scenes stuff though. Turning the cameras on the whole team. I always like that.

I'm still not sure how this first ep ends, I kept falling asleep. But that wasn't the show's fault. I was up nearly 20 hours at that point; I was just freaking tired.

I'll fast forward to the end again and see how it comes out. And I'll try the next ep too.
