Welcome bbs!  
Well, I'm kind of late since I had to go to bed last night... but welcome to everyone who came here from the ontd_spnparty friending meme, and to all of you whom I met through other means! :D

Here's an updated "about me" post, I suppose. :) My current fandom obsessions are Supernatural and Heroes. Writing fics, making fanvideos, and having discussions are my main methods of expressing what's usually my CAPSLOCK JOY. I don't have much in the way of Supernatural posted yet-- for whatever reason the muse just isn't with me on that one-- but it's my absolute favorite show right now, so I'm sure mentions of it will sneak in here and there. My OTPs are Sam/Dean (Supernatural) and Nathan/Peter (Heroes), so those pairings will probably be shown in my works most often, though I enjoy the variety of reading other couples.

I usually post maybe once a week? So you shouldn't be getting spammed too terribly much. :) And even if I don't comment on everything that's posted by my flist I usually read it so I know what's going on.

I can probably sum it up like this: capslocking is fun and LJ is not SRSBSNS. :) If you'd like to mention something about yourself, or if you have any questions for me, go ahead and comment away at your leisure.

ETA: Ugh, HTML fail. >.<

JUST SAYIN' HI BB!
hi :waves:

OTPs OTPs OTPs (yes there can be two, although SamnDean are kind of pretty much number one but now I don't feel like such a cheater for being so madly in love with Nathan/Peter :D so much love)
aidennestormaidennestorm on May 26th, 2010 03:38 pm (UTC)
Hey! *waves back* :D

I definitely go back and forth on the boys... I got into Heroes during the February (I think?) hiatus of SPN, and it's one of those things where it really depends on what I read/see/etc. in fandom at the time as to which pair I love most. But Nathan/Peter is kinda my fallback pairing when Sam and Dean are making me really depressed because they, you know, actually SAY THAT THEY LOVE EACH OTHER and all the TOUCHING and stuff is too fantastic to resist. ;D
tequilafishtequilafish7 on May 26th, 2010 03:50 pm (UTC)
YES, I AGREE COMPLETELY.

Hi new friend! *waves*

I stopped watching Heroes after...like...two or three episodes in to the third season, I think, but Nathan/Peter is totally awesome, and I read a lot of fic about them. Those two give Sam and Dean a run for their money as far as sexual tension between siblings goes. xD

I love Sam/Dean though. They are my OTP4LIFE!
aidennestorm: sam/dean kissaidennestorm on May 26th, 2010 05:49 pm (UTC)
Hello! :D *waves back*

Ah, yeah, I totally understand-- the first half of season three made me headdesk SO often. >.< I totally agree, though; it was actually a comparison between the Petrelli brothers and the Winchester brothers that inspired me to watch Heroes originally. (I now have a weakness for hot angsty brothers, LOL.)

Sam/Dean does have a special place in my heart, though, and if I could only read one pairing for the rest of my life I think I'd choose them. Their love saves the world... and I'd say that's deserving of an OTP4LIFE status. :D (On a purely shallow note, Sam/Dean fics are so fucked up at times, and I LOVE IT. The Nathan/Peter fandom is kinda tame by comparison... I still love it, don't get me wrong, but sometimes I just crave the dirtyhotwrongness of Wincest.)

*elbows in*

Hai! Nathan & Peter's love saves the world tooooo! Season 1 finale, bb!

*ahem*

Anyway, I totally <3 Sam and Dean too, but I don't see as much of the sexual tension between them as I do with Nathan & Peter (they're Italian, maybe? so they are really affectionate? I don't know). Actually, I think that Nathan & Peter owe a lot of that to Adrian & Milo's chemistry together.

Oh hey, not that you asked or anything (hehe), but if you wanna read some epically messed up Petrelli dynamics, head over to mumblemutter's journal and read the two fics set in the AU where the Petrelli's are arms dealers. Those two fics were like o_O (but in a good way).
aidennestormaidennestorm on May 27th, 2010 04:17 am (UTC)
LOL you can elbow in at any time. ;D And that's definitely true... which, I didn't really think about it that way until I was looking up the meaning of "yellow crayon speech" (I never watched Buffy, heh) and had the lightbulb moment. XD

Huh, that's interesting, because my friend said the same thing... y'know in my post about the onesided RP I did with a friend? Same girl. She said that she could buy Nathan and Peter having the sexual tension-- though limited to Nathan's side only-- but not Sam and Dean.

(Side story: we watched "A Clear and Present Danger" as we were developing the RP, and there's this one conversation between Nathan and Peter that made us go O.o because it was almost EXACTLY what we were planning, once you edited out all the situation specific lines. That was kind of an awesome moment.)

I think my thing with Sam and Dean, and why I love them just that little bit more than the Petrelli brothers, is because of the way their love is presented in canon-- it's destructive and suicidal and obsessive, but it's the only love that's real. You see in the show that many of the relationships that seem "normal" at first are, in fact, flawed and have something fundamentally wrong at their core; and time and time again it's shown that Sam and Dean and how they're "psychotically, irrationally, erotically codependent on each other" is what keeps them (and, by extension, the whole world) from going off the deep end.

With the Petrelli brothers, it's different. There's no doubt that they're dependent on each other; Nathan's "I don't know who I am without you" is testament enough to that, not to mention his total meltdown after HTSAEM... and, of course, Peter becoming recklessly suicidal after Nathan's death in 5x12. But I think it's because they're very free about how much they love each other and how much they need each other. It's easy to access, it's there in every time they look at each other, in every time they inappropriately touch. We never doubt it, not even during Nathan's s.3 debacle. It's a bit more... not happy, really, but quietly constant and affirming, IMO.

So to me, the two pairs function differently, and appeal to me at different times... but I'll admit that I have a thing for that sort of tragic, twisted kind of love that the Winchesters have. I don't know why, because I HATE this sort of drama in real life. But in shows I eat it with a spoon.

I might have read those fics... I'll go check them out again, just in case. :) Thanks for the link!

(And OMG this got sooooo long. I'm sorry about that! ;_; This is just the first time I've actually tried to articulate the difference for me.)

Sakura: peter is emosakura_no_mi on May 27th, 2010 05:46 am (UTC)
Good points, I see what you mean! Although I only recently started watching Supernatural (I'm in the midst of Season 3 currently) so I've only just begun to touch upon the wonderfulness that is Wincest. Hee.

I feel that I might need to ration out my viewing of Supernatural DVD's since I have no fandoms left (this is me shedding one emo tear for Heroes & Lost). Because I'm so behind on the episodes, I haven't read my SPN fic, 'cause I don't want to be spoiled by what's gonna happen.

Anyway, 'cause I've basically been reading all these crazy epic Heroes fics this whole time, I think my perception of Nathan & Peter goes far beyond canon. It's almost like the fandom has created its own collective head!canon where Nathan & Peter's relationship is far more destructive/obsessive/suicidal than on the show.
aidennestormaidennestorm on May 27th, 2010 04:51 pm (UTC)
Well, there is a sixth season of Supernatural coming out this fall. So if you get caught up by September you'll have new episodes to follow in real time. :) I totally understand what you mean, though! All the shows that I've grown up with as a teen, even if I didn't watch them, are going off the air. It's a really odd feeling.

Huh. You know, I would agree with that. It kind of reminds me of a poll I read and all the subsequent comments a couple months back (I don't remember where it was, or else I'd link it, but you probably saw it anyway), about how people saw Nathan and Peter's relationship. And the thing I disagreed with is that, from what I remember, it seemed like Peter was almost viewed as Nathan's hapless victim? Like, people thought that Peter was a lot more innocent and well-intentioned in their relationship than I see him to be. All you have to do is look at "Don't Look Back", where Peter threatens to jump off the roof a second time if Nathan doesn't tell him that he can fly, or in "Nothing to Hide" where he corners Nathan at the brunch because he wants to see the painting that Linderman has... it's stuff like that. That's why, as much as I like dominant!Nathan, I'll usually skip over fics that have a really passive Peter, because I don't see that in his characterzation at all.

LOL I'll stop with my dissertation now... XD But anyway, I think the phenomena of fanon is fascinating-- the fact that someone writes an interpretation that readers find compelling and inspiring, and decide to incorporate it into their own interpretation so much so that the original idea gets perpetuated into fandom as a whole.
molly: SUPERNATURAL  •• samcontrition on May 26th, 2010 07:35 pm (UTC)
Hey you! I know just what you mean - my life has pretty much revolved around Supernatural for awhile now and yet I never know what to post. I really want to start writing fics again or at least do more Supernatural related graphics. :) Gotta do something to keep me occupied during the hiatus. I've actually never watched Heroes, but I should go back and marathon the seasons sometime!
aidennestormaidennestorm on May 26th, 2010 07:44 pm (UTC)
Yeah, me too. What kind of graphics do you usually make? And I really enjoyed Heroes, despite the bad reputation it has after season one. I tend to be really loyal to my shows, even when everyone else is jumping ship. (Like SPN... I loved season 5, and the fact that the world was saved by a yellow crayon speech makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. :D )
the joyful existenceyourkidney on May 26th, 2010 08:06 pm (UTC)
Eh, I saw most of the first season of Heroes, but there were only a few characters I was interested in, so… (Mainly Peter and Nathan.) BUT YAY! I like squee about them.
aidennestormaidennestorm on May 26th, 2010 08:24 pm (UTC)
Haha, me too-- I just watch with rapt attention when the boys are on and kinda zone out the rest of the time. XD
Liz: HEROES [with a fist is better than none]psychedelicammo on May 26th, 2010 11:32 pm (UTC)
I'm not exactly new, but had to comment.

Sam/Dean is awesome and I love them to bits, but Nathan/Peter is my real OTP. Now I only watch Heroes episodes they're in and do gratuitously homosexual things like look at each other! Have you seen the way they look at each other? It's magical ::happy sigh/melts::.
aidennestormaidennestorm on May 27th, 2010 01:36 am (UTC)
Comments are most definitely love. :D

Oh, man, do I know what you mean. The looks and the touching... they make me feel all squishy and fluffy inside. ^-^ And I thought I would never find another pair of actors like Jensen and Jared that had such gorgeous chemistry (and awwwww worthy pics), but Adrian and Milo take the cake. <3

This is kind of a random question, but have I seen you around somewhere? Maybe on flyingpetrellis? I feel like I recognize your username, but I can't figure out from where.
Liz: HEROES [still learning how to fall]psychedelicammo on May 27th, 2010 03:07 am (UTC)
Don't think so. I never really frequented flyingpetrellis, though I suppose I should saddle up since they're the only Petrelli-centric comm still showing signs of life.
aidennestormaidennestorm on May 27th, 2010 03:14 am (UTC)
Huh. Okay. I must be thinking of someone else then, lol. And yeah, definitely! That's one of my favorite comms to frequent. :D
Sakura: high priced call boysakura_no_mi on May 27th, 2010 03:44 am (UTC)
Holy crap dude, your icon is so much win!

"You get it, right?"

"Yeah, I get it."
Liz: HEROES [i'm in trouble pete]psychedelicammo on May 27th, 2010 03:48 am (UTC)
Yeah! Those Petrellis and their crazy foreplay.
aidennestormaidennestorm on May 27th, 2010 04:22 am (UTC)
LOL I thought you were quoting "Antipositional" at first until I actually looked at the icon in question. XD
chibiariane: Ventimiglia - On The Roadchibiariane on May 28th, 2010 05:59 pm (UTC)
Because of you I looked up the whole Wincest thing and decided to start watching SPN. :D I don't know anything about it but I think it could be fun. lol
Still, Nathan/Peter is my OTP4LIFE.
I had many favourite pairings and then Heroes came and made me realize how happy I am that I'm a shipcest fangirl. lol It was like I was waiting for Petrellicest since the day I was born... :D Magical!
aidennestorm: sam/dean kissaidennestorm on May 29th, 2010 02:34 am (UTC)
YES!! I think you might be my first convert to Supernatural! \o/ If you decide to keep at it, let me know how it goes. ;D

I totally understand... I came to Supernatural specifically for the Wincest, so it's inextricably tied up into the show for me, which is partly why I love both so much. :)

tequilafish: adrianhot by metequilafish7 on June 1st, 2010 08:53 am (UTC)
I didn't know where to post this.. but I figured this would be as good a place as any..

I figured out how to download Profit and started watching it!!!

ADRIAN
UUUUNNNNNNNNNNFFFFFFFF

:swoons:

holyshit, I am in love (not that I wasn't before, but now it's reached a whole new level).
I went and made an Adrian icon for this comment. Actually, I made two. This one isn't from Profit(I don't know what it's from) but it's hot. I think the second one is him as Profit. With the epic hair and overall prettyness. Except when it's COMPLETE AND UTTER HOTNESS.

HE IS SO FUCKING HOT.
At the beginning when he started talking I had to pause it and have a little squee moment. lmfao.

And I'm really enjoying the show in general. It's kind of awesome, ngl.

THANK YOU FOR TELLING ME ABOUT IT! :showers you in love:
aidennestorm: profit boxaidennestorm on June 1st, 2010 06:01 pm (UTC)
LOL, this is definitely what I meant when I said that Profit changed my mind!! XD I'm glad you're enjoying the hotness as much as I did. ;D
