→ Another Meme:

The rules, if anyone else is bored:
1) Comment to this and (if you want) I will give you 3 (fictional) people.
2) Post this meme to your LJ with your answers.
3) Provide pictures/text descriptions and the names of the 3 people.
4) Label whom you would shag, marry and (push off a) cliff.

[ profile] cosmo_jenny decided to be evil and gave me Dean Winchester, Arthur Pendragon and Eric Northman.

(no cut because I refuse to hide the pretties)

shag: Eric Northman

Maybe it's because I have a thing for guys with blonde hair and blue eyes or because I'm interested in how sex with a vampire really is, but truth is: I could never say 'no' to this.

marry: Arthur Pendragon

Out of the three he's the only one I see who'd be able to truly love a woman and stay with her til the end.
He's caring, noble and brave. Sometimes he's very stubborn and headstrong but he has a good heart. And yeah, he looks gorgeous as well. Despite (or actually because of) his arrogance he's the type of guy I'd fall for.

cliff: Dean Winchester

I could never shag or marry him because he belongs to Cas.
No, but seriously: I love Dean. He's funny, has good taste in music, he's brave and he sure looks good, but he isn't a man I would want to marry. His brother will always come first and I'm sure if he couldn't give up hunting for Lisa and Ben he couldn't do it for me either. And there's no way that I'd push Eric off a cliff (even though he'd possibly survive that) and miss a passionate night with him. Sorry Dean.

→ Has anyone seen The Glee project yet? I've never seen an American casting-show before, so I can just judge by what I've watched on German television, but to me it seems like this show has more heart than others. I like that the judges are not some self-proclaimed experts but the ones who cast, decide and work for Glee as well.

Of course, I do have some favorites:
I really like Cameron with his cute and nerdy look. He seems to be everyone's favourite from what I've read so far.
Lindsay is very pretty but annoying as hell. Reminds me of Rachel. I don't know. I like her and I hate her at the same time.
I love Damian! I could listen to him talk all day. His accent! ♥♥♥

→ I also watched True Blood 4x01 and 4x02. I'm putting all my thoughts behind a cut in case you haven't seen it yet. Also minor spoilers for the book-series by Charlaine Harris.

I'm very excited to see where this season is going. I don't know if it was a mistake to read all the books over the hiatus, but I'll try my best to keep them separated from the show in my head. But still, sometimes I just can't help myself, so don't be surprised if I compare the two from time to time.
There are things that I like better in the books (e.g: Bubba; though I see that there was no way to convincingly have him on the show) but I'm also grateful that the show is developing it's own storylines (best decision ever: to not let Lafayette die!) so there's always the possibility to be surprised by what happens next, even if you've read the books.

Sorry, but I considered for a moment that I was watching an episode of Earth 2 by mistake instead of True Blood. Seriously. I was like this all the time:

Also grand-daddy is back and killed off a couple of minutes later. Maybe this storyline will make sense later, but now I'm just happy they left the fairies beeing fairies and I hope we don't see them again too soon. That's one thing I like better in the books: the introduction of the fairies.

Barry the telepath.
I was disappointed to see him. I like him as a character, but maybe it's because I read the books. I don't know, I liked that he got involved in vampire business, just like Sookie, and that they met again at the summit in book seven. I wonder if they're going to pick up this storyline at all.

Sookie has been gone for over a year and her house was sold.
I don't have a problem with the time jump. It was good choice to keep things interesting.
The moment Jason told Sookie that someone bought her house I KNEW it was Eric and I proved to be right about that. Yay!
What I don't get is why Sookie is lying to all of her friends where she has been the whole year. I was relieved, when she said to Sam that she is planning to tell him the truth, which leads me to the next:

Sam found a shifter support group and I thought first it was a swinger-club or something. Sam also found a new girlfriend and I have a feeling that she is up to something. Sam also regrets shooting his brother and agrees with him to make tiny steps into a healthy brother-relationship. I like!

WTF? That fuck-head is running the state?! He says he still loves Sookie but is screwing this girl who is spying on the witches?

Also I'm sad that Sophie-Anne is gone. I liked her. Again, I wonder what they'll make with the seventh book.

Oh, I love this hot piece of a Viking vampire! I don't care how much some things on True Blood annoy me; as long as he's around I. Don't. Care.
Now that he has lost his memory I hope that we will get some Sookie/Eric like in the books. I hope that I'm not expecting too much here.

Hoyt and Jessica.
Sad thing is: I think what we saw so far is the beginning of the end of the two as a couple.
But: I'm curious to see Jessica run wild. They seem to develop the Jessica/Pam friendship in a direction the Sookie/Pam friendship had gone in the books.

Toilets are for humans only, do I need to explain why?
Pam. Love her. That is all.

Lafayette and the witches.
I'm still indecisive. I think I'll just wait and see where this is going. I was looking forward to Eric loosing his memory, though.
Lafayette and Jesus still together - I approve!

and fiiiiinally:

Am I the only one who hoped that she was gone for good?

Overall I'm pleased with what I saw. I had some problems with the first episode, but the second one was far more better.

btw: I loved the song "She's not there" by Nick cave at the end of episode one. Any chance that one of you has it for me?
