tahariel: (Star Trekkin')
So I ran out of internet today and decided to go look at the hitcounter website I used on my last fic and my fanmix. I haven't looked at them in months, so I was really surprised to find... wait for it...

4014 pageviews for Asymptote, and 921 for my fanmix! Considering that they have 113 and 39 comments on each respectively, and that roughly one third to a half of those will be my replies to comments, that's astounding!

Now, don't get me wrong - I'm really happy just knowing how many people have read it / at least thought about downloading it. I love comments, but having numbers there really fills me with joy. It's interesting as a comparison, though, isn't it? As a statistic of how many people comment versus how many read?

I think I'll go comment on some fic I love right now, actually.

(If anyone is interested, I use Statcounter.com to monitor the number of pageviews. It's free and it's discreet, and it lets me have this gleefulness over my stuff without me having to rely solely on comments.)

Now for the rec!

Clearly very few of you (ie, only [livejournal.com profile] ionaonie) love Superman Returns as much as I do, because she is the only one who caressed its special tickybox on my poll. However! Superman Returns is awesome, and I'm sticking to my guns! Not only does it have Brandon Routh (mmm, Brandon Routh!) and a bullet bouncing off Superman's eye while he smirks hotly, but it is also a really great film for me on an emotional level. There is so much going on under the surface of it, which I really felt tapped into watching it even though that is probably why it didn't do so well at the box office.

Anyway, I'm pairing one of the least popular fandoms from my poll with one of the most - Firefly - in one rec! I'm just that damn good.

I was so pleased with my Superman Returns banner that I decided to make a tutorial for it to show other people how to do similar things, and hopefully have a lot of fun doing it :) So, here goes!

We are making this from these three pictures.

[livejournal.com profile] orcses has asked on her lj post whether I have fallen off the face of the Earth because apparently I haven't posted since Monday. It seems weird to me that not only are my posts actually read, but used as an indicator of my presence and missed when they don't appear :) It makes me all warm and fuzzy inside!

No, really, on Tuesday my Smallville arrived and I've been ploughing through it because I love it. And Tom Welling is such a cutie. Also been watching more Lois and Clark, because even though it's bad I love it. Dean Caine is awesome, and so is Teri Hatcher, though to a lesser extent. I really want more now (I only have one episode left of this season.)

More later most likely, got to go walk the dog now :)

Please go look at my journal and tell me what you think of my new header and colourscheme. I'm quite proud of it, so... I'd love to hear from you all. I loved Superman Returns and Brandon Routh, and I wanted to make a new header anyway, so... let me know :)

I am a bad, bad person. I keep buying DVDs when I haven't finished watching what I already have. The problem is that I know I have the money so my willpower is about zip right now, and then Dad is sort of low-key disapproving and I feel bad about it. (I bought Lois and Clark Season Two yesterday, and just bought the first two seasons of Smallville from eBay. I got hooked on the fanfic by accident and now want to watch it, dagnabbit.)

I think I'll just go upstairs and watch lots of the second season of Lois and Clark so that I can a) get my Superman fix now that the movie has addicted me; and b) have watched some of my DVDs so I'm not such a silly person.

Superman Returns was...

It was...

I spent a long time after it finished feeling very quiet inside, because it affected me that much. It wasn't your typical superhero movie, and I'll admit it maybe could have done with a little more action, but with Superman he's either SUPER or Kryptonited. I just loved it because of how much it was about him and just the ache of it, his whole longing for Lois and the way he can never have her. One of the things I have always loved about Superman is the fact that Lois is in love with Superman, but not with Clark, and what that really means for him. It was... deep, in a way that really chimed with me. Inside my head I had a pseudo-fanfic monologue from Superman, like 'All I have ever tried to do is help you, and yet you do this to me.' I loved the thing with Lois' kid, too. I'm really non-spoilery myself, so I'm keeping details to myself. Suffice it to say that I will be buying it on DVD as soon as it comes out, and wouldn't say no to seeing it again if the opportunity comes up.

Also, saw the first episode of the third season of SGA and loved it, though it was a little predictable. RODNEY, you are my idol and I adore you. RONON... I really want to know where you keep that knife :D JOHN, you sit with Rodney and Zelenka at lunchtime! You secret geek! I love you! I bet you hang out in the labs all the time instead of with the other soldiers and play with mathematics XD
