I'm not a sadist, I just enjoy watching pretty boys bitch-slapped.

Reborn - Yamamoto CHIBITA
Someone on the house_chase community is uploading H/C (hurt/comfort... no, of course it's House/Chase, what d'you think the community's for?) moments, and I saw the priceless moment in Season 1, Episode 15: Mob Rules where Chase gets bitch-slapped by the lawyer brother of a gay gangster patient. WAY to hit all the "Make aefallen Pay Attention" buttons all at once and in such a way as to give me whiplash from racing to see it happen.

I like to call it Chase's Wolfram Moment.

in which slapping makes the world go 'round

Why Life is Such a Bitch to Chase
(no, not because Chase is a bitch)

1. It's tough enough being a doctor without being bitchslapped by your patient's relatives.



2. And having to tend to the guy who's the reason for your being slapped in the first place.


In this scene, he says, "YOU CAN TRUST ME."
House obviously disagrees.

The TRUST ME! Wombat dance.
(when I was young, the words "Trust me" were my favourite words to hear in cartoon series. :D)

4. Your boss wants to fire someone and at the moment it looks like it's gonna be YOU.
(Also, that is the girliest post ever, Chase)

The Difference Between Reality and That Other Sparkly Pretty Thing

The Pretty Thing:


After seeing the word "Hoyay" (means "homoeroticism, yay!") around way too many sites and not at all understanding what it means, I finally found this site, which made me laugh hysterically (clearly I am easily amused) when I read, "In another episode, House declares "I love you!" when Wilson gives him more Vicodin, causing squee in millions of ho yay fans." Causing squee? Causing squee? Oh guys you crack me up! Their six-line Heroes summary had me laughing even harder.

But the one that had me laughing the hardest (probably due to the cumulative effect of all the other lines) was, "Brothers Sam and Dean Winchester of Supernatural are breathlessly subtextualized by Television Without Pity recappers, and copious notes are taken on all possible examples of "Bro Yay.""

This post has been brought to you by a very long day! ♥

I have discovered that if I really like a series, I tend to make a With Stupid icon out of it. This is probably because when I was young and impressionable, lacewood showed me a Hector -> Paris "I'm With Stupid" icon. And THAT WAS IT:


Hugh Laurie in Blackadder - as the Prince Regent, in Blackadder. I watched Blackadder long before House was a twinkle in Master Laurie's eye, and the Prince Regent always made me want to A) laugh hysterically, B) strangle him, C) wonder long and hard about how anyone could be that stupid, even on television. I really don't associate this character with House at all, but with Hugh Laurie.

And oh, was the Prince Regent fabulously gay, in every sense of the word.

Prince Regent (to Blackadder): "What can I do with a woman that I cannot do with you?"
Blackadder: "I cannot conceive."

I have gone to search through my National Library catalogue for YGO material. I have discovered to my surprise that one of our libraries actually has the musical score for the movie. ;) I wonder what you thought of the movie. *grin*

To my surprise, my library has a pretty extensive YGO collection! ;) I think I'd go and borrow them - sometimes nothing beats holding a book in your hands (for me). ;)

I'm just glad it's not canon.

The VILLIAN in it is Anubis, and he's evil or some shit and is also this VERY UGLY BURLY MAN.

And I'm like wtf that's not Anubis. (I love Anubis, he's my favorite Egyptian god).

GOOD PLAN, GO WITH THAT. I have the Japanese volumes, haha.

! If it makes you that angry (and I can see why) - I'm glad it's not canon, too.

I am reading up on YGO and realising that there seem to be MANY VERSIONS of it running around out there?! Wow!

I really do think Anubis is one of the most maligned Egyptian gods out there. A friend loves Anubis too, and she was so furious at The Mummy (or its sequels) because the movies had WRONG in it.

*whistles!* I'm impressed! ;) And happy for you that you were able to aquire the Japanese volumes! One of the great, great things about being where you are. ♥

Yes, but I only consider the manga, series one, and duel monsters canon, because both series one and dm are based on the manga. And Takahashi went to Egypt and did his research and would NOT have written Anubis like that, damnit.

I used to have a figure of jackal-Anubis that I kept in my room as a kid. I've always loved him. Just because he's the god that judges you when you die DOES NOT MAKE HIM EVIL.

They're actually the re-releases, with shiny new art.

I'm reading the novel American Gods right now, and they got Anubis right, and it pleases me.

Anubis placed a pair of golden scales in front of him.

"So this is where we find out what I get?" whispered Shadow to Bast. "Heaven? Hell? Purgatory?"

"If the feather balances," she said, "you get to choose your own destination."

"And if not?"

She shrugged, as if the subject made her uncomfortable. "Then we feed your heart and soul to Ammet, the Eater of Souls..."

"Maybe," he said. "Maybe I can get some kind of a happy ending."

"Not only are there no happy endings," she told him, "there aren't even any endings."
