Fic rec/ Good news re: Lost

Allow me to rec a Supernatural fic. I hardly ever read in that fandom anymore but I beta'd this for zelda_zee and absolutely loved it:

Son of a Preacher Man. The pairing is Dean/Caleb Followill, who is entirely unknown to me but happens to be in the band Kings of Leon. It reads wonderfully even if you're unfamiliar with the band (as I am) and I just loved the attraction between them. It's rated R and contains dubious con and some underage (15 and 17) interaction, so is not for everyone. But if none of the above puts you off, I urge you to check it out! It's an incredibly lovely fic, one I think any fans of Dean will enjoy as much as I did.

-----

And good news for Lost fans: As of now, it looks like ABC will be airing the completed 8 episodes, as scheduled, instead of waiting to air the season as a whole, as FOX is doing with 24. (News story here.) All this is up in the air, of course, depending on how the strike goes. I've been getting the latest on the strike here: wga_supporters.

Now let us enjoy our scripted television while it lasts!

*cries*

This could very quickly shape up to be my living hell. Reality TV is the effing devil's work. DO. NOT. WANT.

I know. :-( I'm worried it will be the death of some shows. Networks are using the strike to clear house of deals and writers they wanted to get rid of, alas.

BUT ... the writers definitely deserve a share of the new media. They've been screwed out of profits long enough! And it'll set a precedent for the other guilds, which is why I think the networks are digging in their heels so deep on this one. Grrrr! They just need to give in before it costs too many people their jobs!

I know. Me too. I don't like the idea of the house cleaning, or the thought that some of these new shows that are just barely getting on their feet might very well suffer, or even, be canceled when the dust clears.

BUT ... the writers definitely deserve a share of the new media.

I completely agree. They really do. The networks are really looking like dicks over this. Selfish, horrible, dicks.

Agreed. There's bound to be some very unfortunate collateral damage from this. I, for one, was really looking forward to the new Eliza & Joss show coming up, which is bound to be delayed now. Not to mention the current TV shows I rather like tuning into!

And yes, the networks ARE being complete dicks over this. I'm so glad to see the actors and showrunners supporting the writers. John McGinley was on Good Morning America this morning and saying that as the WGA goes, so will the SGA, when their contract negotiations come up. So the networks don't want to set that precedent but c'mon! You wouldn't have shows without writers and actors!

I too was looking forward to Joss and Eliza's new show!

And I worried about the shows like Chuck and Pushing Daisies that are so full of potential for longterm success, that might get completely fucked over.

John McGinley was on Good Morning America this morning

I love Johnny C! And the idea that there might not be a proper Scrubs finale breaks my heart.

And I don't doubt that the SGA might very well follow in - June? I think I read June for some reason. But yeah. No writers and no actors would pretty much stifle everything.

I think both Chuck and PD have been picked up for a full season, but that doesn't mean they have the shows ready to air already, of course. Hang in there, little shows!

And John McGinley was talking "what if" when Scrubs goes dark and the network airs some cheap reality show in its place and if that gets decent ratings, that just might be the end of Scrubs. Sucks! I hope it doesn't come to that.

I'm sure PD has been picked up for a full season, Chuck I think just got additional scripts ordered. I think. I may have missed the full season news though.

...that just might be the end of Scrubs. Sucks! I hope it doesn't come to that.

Oh, me too. That would be such an injustice. But Scrubs has been the redheaded stepchild all these years, as is, so sadly nothing would surprise me at this point. :/

Yes! Sitting on finished eps would be madness, yes?

(And hee, I read band RPS. Sort of! I guess if it involves a Winchester and demonic possession, I'm down with it, LOL.)

Yay! :) Wonderful news on the Lost front!

Yes! Sitting on finished eps makes no sense! I understand they're reluctant to repeat the "just a few episodes and then a mini hiatus" pattern of last season but it's still better than no Lost at all!

That is good news about Lost! As good as it can get, anyway.

Honestly, I'm just glad that there may be a break inbetween, only because one long season will totally kill us.

Now I bet they are wishing they went with the standard season and a month off for December..okay, maybe that's just me wishing that.

They showed about 24 on Extra, and they gave away a MAJOR SPOILER, I guess they don't really care right now.

I just hope that "break" isn't a whole year!

And hmm, is the 24 spoiler about this season's villain? That was in the S7 promo that was posted about two weeks ago. I'm a bit surprised they'd give away what does amount to a huge spoiler but they usually have a lot more up their sleeves! Anyway, it was out pre-strike so I don't think they're spoiling anymore than they were before.

Thank you very much for the lovely rec, hon! This pairing's a hard sell, I knew that, but kind of had to write it anyway. I'm really happy w/the outcome regardless of how many read it. :)

That's good news about Lost. I think they have to go that way, otherwise, I can't imagine the fans would stick around.

My pleasure! :) And I hope more people do read it!

I think they realize they better show us some Lost or pull the plug. And they can't pull the plug!
