After my last post I was completely embarrassed
and at the same time, perversely proud to notice that the episodes I listed as having watched since the previous post amounted to 87. In NINE days. And over the next 24 hours I watched another 13 episodes, bringing my total for those ten days up to an even 100 (ten of which were
When I was still on the early season 1 episodes, I commented to Steph that I really only 'shipped Casey and Cappie because I liked Cappie so much, and he was so obviously still in love with her, but that I thought I'd probably have no problem 'shipping him with someone else because Casey wasn't exactly my favorite character.
And wouldn't you know it, right around the time Rebecca and Cappie did that experiment together I was totally on board with the anyone-but-Casey approach to Cappie!'shipping. Which I have a feeling leaves me the odd man out in Greek 'shipping circles, but whatever.
I've tried, but I really can't bring myself to like Casey. The closest I get is when she's with her brother, but even then, I still don't care, you know? Pretty much everything she stands for is everything I abhor, and the things she finds important, I find frivolous, shallow and stupid. They can talk all they want about sisterhood and lifelong bonds, but it all just feels like empty words to cover up the backstabbing, partying and boy-craziness that they REALLY care about. And I find mind-numbingly boring.
I'm not sure I'm all aboard the Rebecca/Cappie express, but I do know I have no interest in Cappie/Casey anymore. Though I'm fairly sure we're headed in that direction. If it does happen, I hope it's either after Casey changes in some drastic way, or that it's over with minimal tears and bloodshed (mine, of course).
). All this while working full-time (but not very hard, I must confess), having at least two game nights with friends and reading tons of fanfic. I'm not sure how I did it.
But considering my resolve to watch at least the first seven seasons of The X-Files before the movie premieres (which is August 1st here, giving me an extra week), I'm hoping I'll stay in this strange time vortex for just a little while longer. Right now, I'm on 2x10, and I'm hoping to finish seasons 2 and 3 before the end of the week.
Also, I'm thinking I should cap some episodes as I go (because even though there ARE caps for most episodes, the quality is sadly lacking), but I can't really figure out which ones to cap except for Paper Hearts, so any suggestions/requests would be welcome.
