Dudes. I come from beyond the eternal mists of the nether world! Aka: Tumblr. Lol. For any of you still around, I've been wanting to post again foreverrrr, but I talked myself out of it time after time because I'm so lame-ass. I'm, like, Kardashian lame. Beiber lame. TRUMP LAME. Okay, maybe not that lame. But pretty lame.

However, I've come back to preach the word. The word, my sisters (and brothers) (haha, just kidding), is my new religion. My new and singular fandom that's struck me to the core, the only one since Buffy that's fired my loins and make me a true believer.

OMG don't laugh; it's Daredevil.

Let's break it down. Usually I go for fellows who look like this:





Big brawny men with muscles to spare and tempers to avoid. That is my aesthetic. Heck, I married it!

But along comes this guy:



Slim and shortish, hot as hell, hyper competent, hyper conflicted. Tormented, even. The last fictional boyfriend of that description who caught my heart this hard was a boy named Spike, heh. Matt Murdock, my new TV megacrush. His million watt smile is going to give me a stroke. His bum! His cane! His punches! His tilt of the head to hear all the sounds! Oh god, his mouth!!::collapses in a puddle of need:: I've never wanted a TV character to have sex with anyone, anywhere, anyhow SO BADLY IT HURTS. I settle for him beating the shit out of everyone and spitting blood when he's down. whimper

I gulped down season 1 this week, panting and wide-eyed, and watched Episode 1 of S2 tonight. OMG CRAZY SHANE IS THE BIG BAD. I don't know if I can survive it, honestly. I love all the other characters too, Karen and Foggy and especially Fisk, who is after all my go-to aesthetic in case you missed it.

Probably none of you watch it, or else watch it with the same detached interest that I give to all the other shows I watch, but I feel a duty to proselytize to y'all. You need a little devil in you. Praise be! I don't even care if the next 2 seasons are bad; I'll always have perfect season 1 to keep me warm. And by warm, I mean unconfortably hot. Hahaha. ::fans face so hard I get tendonitis::

Anyway...hi! I'm, uh, trying to stay away from carbs these days and my youngest is almost done Grade 12. I'm almost 50! I'm trying to plan out a Kickstarter!  We're thinking about our "retirement" in a few years! I miss you all VERY VERY MUCH. But that goes without saying. xoxoxoxo

Hi You! ♥

I have seen about 3 minutes of Daredevil, so alas I cannot join in. But there are people on my flist similarly afflicted...

I refuse to believe the tiny Poshkittens are that big.

(Although my eldest is 17. So, um.)

Anyway, you may have seen it already, but your return coincides with a Daredevil fic-a-thon... :)

Tell our children to just slow the heck down! I still remember when your youngest was born. That was, like, five years ago right? Right??

Daredevil fanfiction. Oooooooooh.

PS See you on Tumblr. Ha!

TEN! She's TEN!

Here is is on her birthday, and here are a few recent photos from World Book Day.

I remember when you posted Posh Kitten's drawings of Buttercup.

My eldest has turned into a Mini Me, which is rather neat. This includes writing epic fanfiction thousands upon thousands of words long...

And see you on Tumblr!!! <3

She is so lovely and also looks like a laugh and a half. And I've already seen those pics because I'm here all the time, I just don't post. Until now! struts

Reading all the fic prompts for Daredevil made my arms go numb with joy. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing. Heeeee.

I like it a lot. I want Castle and Frank to run away together. Fisk is so good, amazing actor!

I never expected in a million years to like it as much as I do. I thought Fisk deserved award nominations, although superhero shows are always the red-headed step kids of the awards circuit.

It's soooooo good to hear from you!

I really liked Daredevil season one, too! Haven't had time to watch s2 yet... but will do soon!

Matt is hot indeed. 'cause I'm singularly uninspired, I ship him with Claire.

I like how all the characters are three-dimensional.


p.s.: What are you kickstarting?

From: [identity profile] poshcat.livejournal.com
It's good to see you! And be here! Wheeee!

I ship him with everyone he talks to haha. At least we got to see him kiss Claire, so she's the obvious choice. And she appreciates seeing him without his shirt on, so bonus points to her.

I really appreciate how none of the characters are good or bad, but a painful mixture of both. Except Foggy. He's all angel, although that may change in S2. We shall see!

PS I want to Kickstart a trivia card game. I've always wanted to attempt a Kickstarter campaign, so I guess this is a bucket list endeavour. :0D

OK - you had me at his smirk. Although for full disclosure, I am most enamored of those men who physically resemble the first aesthetic but behave like the second. I never said I wasn't complicated. Or greedy.

So thanks to you, I'm going to take my allergy-ridden ass upstairs and start watching - what, like I had anything else better to do today?

I miss you, lovely. MISS YOU! How did we get this old, eh? I can sort of kid myself that I'm not not approaching 50 because my children are still so young but really, who am I kidding. I nap most afternoons - not even my grandma had to do that.

If you want carbs, have protein instead. (said the woman who just ate a donut)

Smirks are very important! The most important. He has scars, too. On his hard little body AND his soul. \0/

Have you checked out Ray Donovan? He's big and mean and helps drug addicts and tortures guys and loves his kids and cheats on his wife...and he's totally hot.

I hope you enjoy Daredevil. I want to take all of them home and cover them in blankets and give them tea and make them feel better. And also have sex with them. I'M COMPLICATED THAT WAY.

Time is fleeting, isn't it? I nap most afternoons, too! And I'm a better person for it. I also pull muscles doing things like rolling over in bed, getting out of the car, and almost falling. LOL.

I watch it and I love it and your timing is excellent bc LJ is having a hell of a renaissance so fuck Tumblr, man and welcome back!

From: [identity profile] poshcat.livejournal.com
I'm so excited you watch it and love it! I'm only sorry it took me so long to find it.

I'm glad I have excellent timing (tho not as good as Murdock's, amirite??) and indeed - let's consider Tumblr well and thoroughly fucked! Haha.

Thanks for the welcome back. ::dances with you::

I'm too old for Tumblr.

I'm up to ep...3 I think in S2 of DD. You can tell there's Jossverse writers/creators, for sure. I can't say Murdock is my favorite hero in the world- like I was saying to someone else, he's a bit too *nice* for my taste (you remember me?) but I do love the show and I am looking forward to him sliding a little more toward the gray. If he doesn't, uhm, I might have to root for Crazy!Shane's character? Which is crazy bc I did NOT like that actor on TWD. He excels at playing The Punisher though. And I LOVE LOVE LOVE Karen.

From: [identity profile] poshcat.livejournal.com
Have you watched any more? OMG, Matt's not sliding toward gray so much as leaping into it with both adorable feet. I can't believe how violent this show is, and I watch Walking Dead. I want to love The Punisher (and more than possibly ship him with Karen), but he's so awful! I can't imagine a redemptive arc for him, but I guess I'll keep my hopes up until he dashes them like so many brains against a nearby concrete object.

I have not! Banshee came back on and I got swept up. Planning on mainlining more this week esp if what you say is true... Wheeeee. Punisher' backstory was pretty horrific so as of now I am cutting him slack. I anticipate this will change? :g:

Personally, I prefer my Charlie Cox to look like this (the man has a pelt!)

Overall, I was very disappointed in Season 2 of Daredevil, mainly because of Matt's storylines. The Punisher was awesome, though. And so was Foggy (can't wait to meet Elden in May at a convention!).

OMG THEY SHAVED HIM. LOLOL. I was vaguely aware of Charlie's existence before this, but now I'm madly in love with him. He's like a little British Pug in RL. Matt Murdock's more like a MinPin haha.

I'm keeping an extremely open mind about Matt's storyline in S2, although I'm really not sure how they're going to pull this thing out of the fire...unless the show plans on having our three main characters never talk to each other again. I don't mind dark arcs as long as there's sunshine SOMEWHERE down the road. We shall see!

Hello! Glad to see you :)

I am watching Daredevil and like it, but, alas, nothing gets me as hot as Buffy used to. ;)

Date: 2016-04-05 08:24 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] poshcat.livejournal.com
Haha, it's true that nothing can touch Buffy, and probably never will, but this is the very first show since BtVS that has really got me worked up, so it's like spring after a long winter. Not summer (or Summers, GET IT???), mind you, but I'll settle for what I can get.

I'm glad to see you too! And also your icon, heh.

I have glut watched every episode, so I get where you are coming from and the second season is as good as the first so no worries there.

My youngest is now 21... they grow up either way too fast or way too slow!

He's got a great ass. No shame in lusting after Charlie.

I have the season finale of S2 queued up. It's been a crazy season.

Miss you, too!

I've gotten sucked into the Sleepy Hollow fandom. I even created a Tumblr account so I can follow people. It's amazing. I won't watch Daredevil, because I can't do bloody and violent, but I'm glad you enjoy it so much. :)
