Fringe (not Gwen's)  
Oh dear, I have been inactive again for quite a while. I guess it was a combination of disappointment about the latest Torchwood season, the lack of a new Doctor Who season, the fact that Sherlock only has three episodes (haha) and - that's probably the biggest one of them - my absolute frustration at my current workplace.

Work has been so upsetting for me that I even suffered from minor depression and then I was ill with a nasty cough for two months. I was trying to keep it together, trying to keep busy, to be creative. I had even started a creative writing course at the end of last year but I put too much pressure onto myself and instead of enjoying the creative process I tried to plan everything and got more and more upset the more I missed my targets. Seriously, I shouldn't plan everything through, especially not my leisure time activity and especially not when I am trying to be creative. So, yes, very upsetting months all in all.

But apart from that I had some quiet time to watch two shows which have been running for quite a while: Supernatural and Fringe. That's right, I am the absolute late bloomer on these. I have watched Supernatural up until the last third of season 5 and I am an absolute Dean-girl :-D
I have finished watching season 2 of Fringe today and I have to say although the ending is a good one for a season finale, it still wasn't a nice ending. But I guess they had to do that in order to keep the story going. If they had done a happily ever after now, there would have been only enough story to tell left for 1 season max. I thought season 2 was too long, from the 23 episodes about 15 or 17 were relevant or enjoyable. Some of them were really just fillers and I won't even mention episode 11 in which they miraculously resurrected Charlie (such a very dumb thing to do, Doctor Who fans would have gone protesting onto the streets if such a massive continuity error would have happened!)

If there is anyone on my f-list who likes Fringe and who likes reading Fringe fanfiction, could you recommend me some stories, pretty please? Also any good Fringe comms on lj would be highly appreciated. I believe in the power of the friendlist first before searching by myself.

And that's it for now, I might be writing some Fringe fanfiction in the near future but first I have to read some in order to get a feeling for it. And I have been thinking of doing a cute Peter Bishop-drawing :-)

I hope you're all doing well!

I haven't read any Fringe fic, actually, though I was a late bloomer in getting into this show too. :D (I can't remember if I mentioned it to you or not? But yeah, I started watching the series with Jeremy not too long ago, and we're caught up now.)

I did want to shed some light on the miraculous resurrection you mention though. ;) Apparently, that was a random un-aired episode from S1, and at the time, it was billed as such, so... Fans at the time probably wouldn't have seen it as a being quite so ridiculous. I was completely confused and annoyed though, since like you, I was just going through the episodes I'd downloaded in order, and had no warning, of course. So... Yeah. :P I guess that's what we get for being latecomers? XD;;

It caught me completely off guard and at first I wasn't sure I whether I was watching the right episode or not. Then I read somewhere online that they had randomly put this episode from season 1 in and nobody had been very impressed by it. It is a very stupid thing to do, then rather just leave one episode out. But the feeling I get from season 2 anyway is that they were desperately trying to create 22 episodes XD

Last night I watched episode 1 of season 3 and it annoyed me so much that I couldn't sleep properly (yep, I am pathetic like that, hehe)I mean how the hell could Peter not have noticed that he is kissing the wrong Olivia?! He even said to Frauxlivia in season 2 that she is nothing like the Olivia he knows. And he has been so very close with Olivia throughout season 2, always supporting her and understanding her so well and now he just doesn't get it. And neither does Walter... I was really angry! I liked the taxidriver, though :-D I hope season 3 will be getting better soon, otherwise I can't see myself continuing to watch it.

how the hell could Peter not have noticed that he is kissing the wrong Olivia - Give it time. ;) I won't say more, but... Yeah. ;)

And I mean, I'm caught up now, and I wouldn't say the series is without it's flaws, but... To me, it's worth sticking with some of the filler episodes and weirdness. *nod* I remember being annoyed watching that episode too though. :P
