So, I just finished watching VM's season 1, and WHOA! :D
Now I'm DEFINITELY hooked up! LOVED the ending, it was unexpected, but at the same time it WASN'T! There were small things that led to it - and that leads to the second part of my post, but more on that in a moment, now I need to talk about VM, shipping and my favorite characters in the show so far! ;)
Shipping: I'm definitely a Logan/Veronica shipper, but I don't mind Duncan/Veronica. I mean, they were boyfriend and girlfriend once. She moved on - or thought she did - and started dating Logan, and according to what I hear about season 2 she got back with Duncan, for whatever reason, but besides the fact that *that* gets in the way of L/V, I don't want to take my arm off and throw at them! Duncan *IS* a nice kid, nicer than Logan under some aspects, and they are NOT SIBLINGS! Which makes them quite different than Harry/Hermione, which I can't stand simply because they *ARE* like siblings for me - but I'm not nandaweasley
, so I will refrain from compairing things to Harry Potter! ;) So, I LIKE Duncan/Veronica, and if I remember all the not-so-nice things Logan did, especially in the beginning of season 1, I could prefer D/V over L/V, but I just CAN'T because I keep remembering their first kiss in 1.18! And THE WAY LOGAN LOOKS AT HER! OMG! HE GLOWS! *SHE* GLOWS! IT'S SO F*CKING PERFECT! XD
Favorite characters: I love, love, LOVE KEITH! And Eli! And Logan - when he is with Veronica! ;) LOVE THEM! *hugs*
Now, on to the second part of this post! What I like in series, movies, books and the like!
I just realized, when watching VM's season 1 ending, that what I really like in stories isn't the characterization - not that I hate the characters, no, I love them, but what REALLY does it for me, what REALLY makes me hooked up and interested in the story are the little bits, the tiny details, the small - and not so small - hints that lead up to the end, or to a great revelation and the like in the story. We have those in Harry Potter, in Farscape, in VM, and in SW - yes, in SW. Not in the movies, but in the books. That's why I worship Timothy Zahn so much! He took loose ends from the movies - created new ones - and wrote the EU books! With loose ends, little bits and "tiny hints" from the movies! ;) XD
But to say I don't care about characterizaton at all would be wrong - I do care about it. When it's WAY off - like Dumbledore almost strangling Harry in GoF. Come to think of it, the fact that I don't care - or pay much attention - to characterization is probably why I liked GoF, instead of hating it. I didn't mind Voldemort. Not even Dumbledore - save that one scene of him strangling Harry - the only one that bugged me, and because she was WAY off, was Emma Watson.
On a deeper level, not quite related to this, perhaps my disregard for characterization reflects my inability to correctly interpret people's character and real motives. That's probably why I'm a fool that always gets carried away by people that don't deserve my trust and end up being used by them.
*sigh* Anyway, I need a L/V icon! From episode 1.18! ;)
