ah yes, that was when i last saw it. my brain.  
What does the term Jossed come from, is it Joss Whedon and why?

Buffy the Vampire Slayer is pretty great, but a show about bloodsuckers with no blood? huhooookay. I also ship Buffy/Willow. Femmeslash, indeed. Didn't see that coming.

Explain to me Mark Ronson.

I discovered some stuff about spas today:

hydrotherapy baths make you itchy
don't shave before a seaweed wrap - fucking ow that stings
facials are god's last gift to his people, although the masseuse kept saying 'ah go on with you'. Stop destroying my dream that you are a hot Greek dude, woman.
many fish died to make my dinner. this was sad because I hate fish. the dessert was creme brulee and jam. I swear to god. jam.
you come out wanting to mainline McDonald's ... even if you hate McDonald's and everything it stands for
so sleepy omg

ps I don't care how awesome, I will never ever ever ever go to see the Black Night. (I'm REALLY tired, y'all, I'm just going to say I think I knew that was Dark Knight at the time of typing, five seconds ago, but I CANNOT BE SURE.) It's like ... swoopy things of evil, they don't do it for me, you know? It looks like a movie with not enough PINK.

I'm pretty sure it came from Joss and his habit of throwing everyone fr a loop all the time - pe0ple that you thought were villain-of-.the-week became main characters, and main characters suddenly died, and almost all fics that predicted the future in some way turned out completely wrong.

Aha, thought it was something like that, just wasn't sure if the name was his or what. ;D Thanks for clearing that up!

Also, to be Kripked is the opposite of being Jossed. You're Kripked when some bit of fanon or part of your fic is confirmed by the show. (though I don't think "Kripked" sounds as good spoken aloud.)

I was about to say 'and that probably never happens,' but then my brain was all hi hello, ALL OF DEATHLY HALLOWS.

So who's Kripke when he's at home?!
allyndra: Ticktockallyndra on August 11th, 2008 11:01 pm (UTC)
He's the creator of Supernatural. I'm not part of that fandom, but apparently things that are written in the fanfic show up in canon often enough that they made a word for it.

Yeah, Deathly Hallows came out and I was like, "Hi, manipulative!Dumbledore. Hi, Lily-loving!Snape. Hi, loving-family!Malfoys. I've known you all for years now."

Ha, it sounds like something from Star Trek. I'm down with it, though; SPN has taken off fandomwise in an insane way, and I'm always happy to read SPNfic when, um, there's nothing else. >.>

I suppose it was inevitable, what with the decade of speculation behind it, but still! Kripked!

Because I might as well spread the knowledge gained from hours wasted reading that wretched site: Here is the definition of Jossed. Yes, it is a Whedon thing, and something like the description you got there above. Mm, Whedon... I actually haven't watched more than one or two episodes of Buffy, but Firefly is made of nothing but sweet space-westerny awesome. Although, it's not very pink either... well, possibly except for Kaylee. [/random]

OH MY GOOOOOOOOOD, TV TROPES. It ate the part of my brain that I could have totally used for something else. Learning to cook, maybe.

I love Firefly, but there comes a point when you realise there's only what, 12 eps of it. And twenty million of Buffy, with actually the same level of awesome dialogue and characterisation. Not to mention heaps of fic. (Something not terribly prevalent in Firefly fandom.)

I, too, have only watched two episodes of Buffy... I started with the two most widely proclaimed as being made of all kinds of awesome, loved them immensely... and still haven't watched any more. The amount of seasons there are, it intimidates me.

I started at the beginning 'cause I'm anal like that, and was pleasantly surprised to find it quite as witty as Firefly, if not quite as slick. The amount of seasons reassures me, actually. I know I'll have something good to watch for a long time to come!
Kladyphoenixia on August 12th, 2008 10:47 pm (UTC)
Starting at the beginning is a good way to go. I just have so very little time to start watching through ten series of another show, haha. Same reason why I haven't watched the David Tennant Doctor Who - I missed the first series, the fell further and further behind because I didn't have the time to watch what I'd missed. Hah.

Much as I'd love to have that bit of cult classic on my side, I don't think I'll ever get into Dr Who. For one thing, the reviews from even devoted fans have been uniformally bad...

Me neither, at least when it comes to Mark Ronson.

It comes from when people would write Buffy fanfic only to have Joss change things up or retcon things, thus "jossing" their fic by making it no longer fit into canon.

Stop destroying my dream that you are a hot Greek dude, woman.

It's like ... swoopy things of evil, they don't do it for me, you know? It looks like a movie with not enough PINK.

I'm pretty sure 'alley' actually is a metaphor for something you might have BUT ANYWAY. You know what I thought on seeing the pics of Heath-as-Joker? Even before he died? 'Aww, he's not pretty anymore.'

Yup, I am that lame and shallow!

Aw, Geeway is happy also!

I bet in his secret soul he wears much pink.
