Lost hiatus - a retrospective

*warning, ultimate geek post*

So, 31 hours until Season 2! I thought I'd spend part of that recounting the fun that was fandom over the hiatus. In rough order:

a) OMG, UK promos of sex!!
b) Foxy becomes the hottest man alive as Details magazine interview, EW cover and many more photo shoots and photo ops prove. All hail the new abs!
c) Where is Josh?
d) OMG! Josh is back! What has he done with his hair? And why is he wearing that awful shirt?! (And for that matter, who is dressing Evi?) And finally - whew, he looks great again! Wow, was I that shallow? *hangs head*
d) AUs pwn fandom: Hillbilly fic! Jack/James!
e) Jack-nursing-Sawyer fics are my crack and they are wonderful and plentiful. Long live fanon.
f) Punky reggae party at lostsquee - vive le picspam!
g) Ficathons:
Boone ficathon. Because we all love Boone now, in retrospect.
Hidden Connections ficathon: 22 fics! Woo!
Kinkathon! (I have yet to write mine! but hot smut is always good)
h) Maggie Grace - hot, hot photo shoots. Everyone's favorite girl crush now.
i) Lost DVDs! Bloopers! Slashy commentary! J/S is officially canon!
j) Foxy and Josh can't open their mouths without encouraging the slash. Which is why we love them. Is it all Dom's fault, somehow? ;-D
k) LOST WINS EMMY FOR BEST DRAMA! Manhugs and gropings abound.
l) Crazed anticipation and niggling doubts about S2. Just bring it on!


If I've forgotten anything, please speak up! I'm sure your hiatus highlights (Bride & Prejudice, maybe?) were different than mine, for the most part.

Heh. She sounds like the lead character on Bones (a show I'm never watching again!)
Thank God for LJ where we likeminded obsessed types can congregate. ;D

Lovin you and these pics so much right now! I've never submerged myself so much in a fandom, especially during the actual show. It's such a different way to experience it and share the Lost Love! And it's opened me up to so many different ideas instead of just canon. I can seriously remember being like, J/S? slash? eh...And now I can happily say I've been completely and utterly corrupted!

Plus, and it sounds like complete cheese, but everyone here on the LJ has helped me through some crappy sobering up times. Just switched the obsession, but this is 10X better!

Lost is my first show that I've gotten this deeply into fandom and it's been soo much fun! And once upon a time I was skeptical about the slash too, LOL.

Aww! Hooray for LJ!

Your icon owns me. Josh in black=sex. UK promos and Foxy/Josh photoshoots were teh best. Of course everyone knows I survived the hiatus due to your and foxxcub's fics. *hides*

That's by green_queen. Love it!

And awww, thanks so much! This whole hiatus went by so fast thanks to LJ, for me anyway. I can't believe it's back tomorrow night. *squeee*

You weren't the only one, sister. Join the Shallow Club. I'm going to make buttons. Heh!

I can't believe the new season starts tomorrow. Woo!

You are so cute. And stealthly avoided bringing up the OMG JOSH LOOKS LIKE ASS debate again, heh.

Tee hee! Trying to go with the power of positive thinking, for once.

I. CAN'T. WAIT. TIL. TOMORROW!

I'm out tonight, as you know but I'll check email of course.

*luffs you*

Yay, Mulder loves his porn! ;-D

I came home to an empty mailbox, dude! And sorry our phone connection was so bad. I'll email you details in the morning probably.

It's officially Sept. 21. Woooooo!

I know you did. *sigh* It's just hard for me to get my thoughts in order; the thing keeps turning into an introspective look at Jack and Sawyer the characters, rather than the shippiness. Blegh. And you weren't around for me to talk to and whine to, so it's just kind of...stuck.

Awwww! *pets*

Don't deny the UST! *kisses*

Maybe we can squeeze in a chat before the Lost premiere airs there. Are you watching the special before it? It's not that same one again, is it? Or one just as lame, probably.

What will I do while the rest of the world is watching Lost? EEEE!

Sep. 21st, 2005 06:14 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I'm going to watch the special because I'm just a dork like that. ;D I'm going to go ahead and send you what I have and let you tell me if I'm off to a good start or not. And then we'll talk when I get home (for all of an hour and a half, HEE).

I'll probably watch it too, LOL! I got it and sent you fb! Looks really good so far! ;-D

Wheee! Foxx chat! LOST PREMIERE!!!!

I might take a quick nap when I get home...I'm feeling kind of moody. But we'll talk for a bit before the show. :)

Then and Now:

Three months ago, I'd never heard of slash. Or fanfic, for that matter. Now I read and write like an insane crackwhore.

I'd also never heard of LJ. Now LJ is my BFF.

I have a whole new vocabulary. My family looks at me like, WTF, only they don't know what WTF means.

Three months ago, I had a major hate-on for Jack. *Major* Now, thanks to certain LJ fic writers who shall remain nameless *glares indignantly at nameless LJ writer* he's my main squeeze...no, wait, that's still Sawyer...no, wait....

Three months ago I would NEVER, ever have thought I'd say this, but hiatus was fun as hell!!!

*but I'm glad it's over*

Hee. The corruption process is so gradual, isn't it? ;-D Welcome to crackwhore status.
And yay for newfound Jack!love and Sawyer!love and of course, JackANDSawyer!love.

It was a helluva hiatus but yes it's about durn time for the new season!!

Uh, you forgot the rocking back and forth in a small ball in the corner chatting, "Sawyer's not dead...Sawyer's not dead...Sawyer's not dead..."

Awww! I spent very little time doing that because I convinced myself earlier in the season that they would NOT, could NOT be killing Sawyer off. They've said too often how integral he is to the show, the yin to Jack's yang and all that. (Or is that vice versa? LOL.) But when there were the first death rumors? I was sooo stressed out.

If they ever do fake us out and kill him off .... ooh, I don't want to think about it!

*clings to Sawyer desperately*

I love the recap!

I feel like the 12 zillion wounded Sawyer fics should be on the list, although they're kind of hinted at in the Jack-nursing-Sawyer reaction to them.
halfdutch
Sep. 21st, 2005 07:27 am (UTC)
Hee, thanks!

You know, besides all the Jack-nursing-Sawyer fics I really loved your fic 'Anathema' which was a wonderful variation on 'nursing Sawyer.' And then there all the fics that ramped up the sci-fi/supernatural aspects of the show, like The Disappeared and The Day After. (Wait, your hot Jack/Sawyer was called The Morning After, right? Loved that one too!) Sooo many great fics this summer.

I hope the show really delivers in the premiere and doesn't make us think 'We waited all summer for *this?*'
