LJ, oh LJ  
No, you Prison Breaky people, I'm not talking about THAT LJ. I'm actually really just talking about LiveJournal.

How the heck can any site be so difficult for me to figure out? :D It's not like I'm *that* stupid or somehow illiterate with computers. It's just getting silly... I use LJ so rarely, so that when I do, I'm always frowning of frustration trying to figure out how to do this and that. Luckily, I have some friends that can definitely be called LJ veterans, so there's always someone to run to.

I've been spending a lot of time reading PB fanfics and reviewing like a good reader. It's just amazing... if you want good fanfiction, you should definitely fall for PB. Believe me. There's just so much breathtakingly good fanfiction out there, it can make even me sit down, concentrate and just read. It's almost inspiring me to write, too. (God have mercy if that should happen...)

Did I already say that I'm head over heels in love with Prison Break?

Prison Break, anyone?

The only thing different this time when it comes to me fangirling, is that this time I actually went fangirlish at the same time with two IRL friends of mine. It's really silly. The other friend of mine has a summer job in her home town a few hundred kilometers away and we can't exactly fangirl all day long, we can't even really talk except through IMs - and lately, when we've been talking, the conversation has followed the lines:

Me: Hey! How are you doing, girl?
Her: Heya! I'm alright. I'm seeing Dominic Purcells everywhere. Even in people that don't look even distantly like him.
Me: !!
Her: Yeah, tell me about it...
Me: That's unfair, I keep trying to Dominic Purcells yet I'm not seeing them everywhere. Besides, shouldn't you be seeing Wentworths, or are have you finally realized the true nature of things and started turning to the Lincoln side of the Force?

I guess it's just a way of trying to divert ourselves from the boring everyday life... at least now we have something else to talk about than "I've been doing the laundry, going out with our dog, sorting our closets..." - "Yeah, I've been working on the graveyard, as you know. Such a great job..."

The other fangirl friend of mine has been practically living in our house for the past two weeks, because my fiancee has spent most of his time at work and I'd be home alone if she wasn't here. I started advertising fanfiction to her a few days back, trying to convince her that she really should try some PB fanfics, seeing that she was just as fangirlish as me, the only exception being that she didn't really know of any outlets for her obsession. ;) I think it was on monday when she finally sat on my comp and started reading some MiSa fics, and to be honest, she's sat there ever since. So, here we've been, sitting side by side on computers, silent, pretty much fully concentrated on reading fanfiction.

To be more specific about fanfics, I'm on a mission to R&R every fanfic by Foxriver Lady. I read a couple of her stories and that's all it took to get me hooked. That woman has a way with words, I tell you. (Check out her fics, if you know even something about PB - http://www.prisonbreakfic.net/viewuser.php?action=storiesby&uid=325 ) Hopefully the person in question doesn't mind me advertising her work here and think I'm some kind of a weirdo stalker, considering that I don't know the lady behind the nick at all. I'm just loving her fics.

So... life's been nice. We've spent it collectively in a pink fangirl haze and we'll try to stay that way as long as it lasts. Uni's gonna crash on us soon enough anyway.

PS. 3 days until I get my John Doe season 1. Can't wait, can't wait, can't wait. I should probably prepare myself by drinking a lot of water, so I won't drool myself into a state of complete dehydration during the first 20 seconds of the first episode. Yes, ladies, wet and nekkid Doms do that to you.

I never used to read this much fanfiction before - I mean, I've read some X-files, Star Wars and random others, but I never had this kind of drive for it, so PB is definitely different - Prisneyland's brilliant authors really got me.

I'm a sucker for angst too - can't get enough. As for OTPs, I don't really think I have one... I'm going somewhere between L/V and L/J, but maybe season 3 finally gives us Team Lincoln -girls a love story to remember, 'ship and write about. ;)

I'm working on reading through badboy_fangirl's fics, but since there are plenty, and I don't want to rush because her stuff is oh-so-good, I still have Sweet Misery waiting to be read. Now that I think about it, I actually realized that I haven't read any M/V stories yet! I really need to fix that.

Oh I totally know the feeling of needing a cold shower and a cigarette - and I don't smoke either. I watched Blade Trinity the other day and Dominic Purcell in that movie was something that really made me feel like moving to the North Pole for a week or two. :D

Actually, my MiSa loving friend could really use some fic recs! She seems to be really frustrated with reading through crapfics and trying to find the good ones, because there are soooo many MiSa fics out there. However, she's really not one for much angst - there can be some, but she wants stuff with a relatively happy ending, or just plain fluffy stuff. So if you happen to know anything that matches these qualifications, let me know!

And while you're at it, why not give me some fic recs too - I prefer to read Lincoln-stuff, but I'm just open-minded as you are, pretty much anything goes. :)
