hello? anybody home?

It's been five years since I logged in. But the account is still here. LJ is still here! Any old friends around? I'd be surprised.

My baby isn't a baby anymore. New fan addiction has just taken hold. Reading fic for the first time in years. Might write some... we'll see. Time is not abundant. But who knows?

Apparently, I continue to be a sucker for dark-haired, blue-eyed white guys. Matt Bomer, you are absurdly pretty. I have been watching ridiculous amounts of "White Collar," a sometimes silly, but zippy, fun and highly slashy show. What am I gonna do while I wait for new episodes to come in January?!

Hello stranger, nice to see your name pop up again! I have never seen White Collar, but I like anything that brings you back home! Have fun with your new fan crush.

Wow, hi! Thanks for the welcome back!

Matt Bomer is adorable. But I'm afraid my heart will always beat hardest for Cillian. (I got to "meet" him this past May! I got him to sign a Japanese flyer for Breakfast on Pluto! :p)

So where've you been? What've you been up to?

(I'm totally into the White Collar fandom, as well. Peter/Neal, Keller/Neal, Jones/Neal. So many choices for a slasher like myself. I'll wager you're a Peter/Elizabeth/Neal fan? It really dominates the fandom.)

Hi!!! How are YOU and what have you been up to? Me -- motherhood and a bigger job than I used to have. Bought a house too ... a lot of hard work in the past 5 years.

Wow, you met Cillian? Amazing. Don't think I could handle meeting him, honestly. I'd be so embarrassed.

Cillian is still my favorite actor, but the obsessive, irrational adoration part has faded. I really wish his output had been as steady and the roles as fantastic as he deserves and as I had hoped. But I'm loving that he's going to do BBC next. Fingers crossed.

I'm new to the White Collar fandom, and the Peter/Elizabeth/Neal fics are hot, but not my fave. Must admit a partiality for Neal/Peter ... the TV show itself practically doesn't make sense unless you write in Neal/Peter for yourself. It's obvious that the writers, not just the actors, are conscious of the slash subtext. Neal/Peter is practically context! I suppose though, in that light, Peter/Elizabeth/Neal starts to write itself too, since canon Elizabeth is so unthreatened by her husband's brazenly obvious obsession with Neal. Peter literally goes to the ends of the earth for Neal, and it doesn't phase her. Jones/Neal -- I wish there was more subtext for it, but the stuff I've read so far marries them off and feels too unmoored from the text to me. Maybe I'll find better stories for them (recs?). Neal/Keller -- that I need to check out more, see what I think.

Matt Bomer is sooo pretty. Frighteningly pretty. I've been enjoying the crush. Been watching old episodes of Chuck -- he's got a great if small part in that, and is simply gorgeous. Haven't seen Magic Mike yet, but it looks hot (duh) and I have always loved Soderbergh. Seems like it may be surprisingly lacking in homoeroticism though...

Motherhood, a bigger job, and your own house. O.o That's both terrifying and awesome. I don't believe I've accomplished anything in the last five years, except miraculously saving up for a tour of bits of Europe (and I complained a lot while there!)

I was completely in shock about being face to face with him. A friend of mine (who was also on the Euro tour) went with me to see his last London Theatre performance of Misterman, and we kept hearing gossip that he never came out for autographs. And then I just hear my friend say "Oh. My. God." and everything went a bit hazy. He asked me for my name, for the autograph. Fortunately, I remembered. As it turns out, there are pictures of his appearance that exact night on the Cillian site (which I only discovered something like three days ago.) Thank God I'm not in them. But it's still exciting, as I had my friend take pictures while I joined the autograph mini-mob, and they- well they didn't turn out great. And then I laid a big kiss on my shell-shocked friend, and started singing "I Can Hear the Bells", until we got lost, and took a two minute cab ride to the nearest open Tube station.

I definitely wonder, sometimes, about Cillian's choice in roles. But I hadn't heard anything about teaming up with the BBC! Lucky British people! We have to wait EONS here, before we get those shows.

I'm definitely all for Peter/Neal, and I have a nasty habit of killing Elizabeth off in my fic ventures, to keep it between the two of them. :p I like her. I just- I'm not big on the "OT3" and it's very difficult to search out White Collar fics without her, when she's in something like 80% of the slash out there. I definitely agree that the writers know what they're doing. And I think it's funny that while Matt Bomer is gay, it's Tim Dekay who's got all the gay roles under his belt.

I tried, for a long while, to find all the subtext between Jones and Neal (how they often sit next to each other, or how Jones is usually the one feeling up Neal's leg cutting/replacing the tracker), but Jones's "Kick his ass." to Peter in the boxing episode punched a lot of holes in my fun theories. I wish I could offer up some awesome Jones/Neal recs... But I haven't really seen any that blow me away.

Careful with the Keller/Neal fics. You might stumble onto a few of mine, and I can promise they're not masterpieces! I just like taking badguys and delving more into their motivations.

I still haven't seen Chuck (though when I finally get around to it, I'm told it will be more for Adam Baldwin than anything else. Jayne!), and all my friends wanted to go see Magic Mike, but the fact that it completely lacks homoeroticism kind of ticks me off. I'm shallow like that. XD

Since you're new to White Collar, maybe I'll be the lucky person to show you this pic? (It's worksafe, AND adorable.)

Love that pic. A slasher's dream come true!!!

I think Cillian has great taste in roles... my theory is that once he got into his thirties the tastier leading man roles he wanted weren't being offered to him. That's why TV could be so promising for him.

Googling now for an update .... looks exciting!

You heard him speak your name and looked him in the eyes ... what a dream.

Jayne, heh, yeah. Adam Baldwin kicks ass in Chuck.

Will have to look out for your WC fics!!!!

Tim and Matt really are adorable with one another. Lucky for us, that chemistry shows in their acting.

I don't agree with all of his choices in films (though I'll watch them anyway, and I've never been disappointed in his acting), but gangster!Cillian is certainly intriguing.

The man has a great poker face. Everyone else was getting him to sign their Misterman playbills, and I had him sign a picture of himself in drag. I still have no idea what he thought of it.

That's so awesome.
