More thoughts (positve) on VM Finale (Spoilers)  
I haven't checked the post below because I wanted to get this out before reading anything else here or at my board.

It was rushed, it was choppy, there wasn't the follow-through or connect that should have been there, etc. However, one thing that was made crystal clear by episode's end is that Veronica is over Duncan, Veronica wants to be with Logan, Logan wants to be with her, Logan is her hero, Veronica is his hero and they turned to one another and helped one another out in a time of crisis. Oh and Duncan is a murderer. He essentially handed to LoVe Shippers on a platter a banquet that said, "Here ya go! Logan and Veronica are it."

As many issues as I had with the finale, it still had some great stuff in it (I'm going to have a blast doing the Homeroom section for the LoVe Shack Breakdown if only because I'm going to be able to alternately point out all of the WTF? stuff alongside the mucho cool, awesome stuff.) and at the end of the day, I'm easy. No, I don't forgive him for this season and still find it subpar compared to last season, but at the end of the day and less than two hours after the episode ended, I wasn't frustrated, I wasn't annoyed, I just had a constant loop in my head of Logan dropping the bags, pulling her into his arms (shades of the The Kiss) and them spinning and kissing. It wasn't even conscious, it was just there on constant loop and made me smile. And that's what I'm holding onto at the end of the day.

Awww - I'm glad.

You are so right. At the end of the day we got the spinning and the kissing. And Duncan IS a killer. Golden boy is forever tarnished and Veronica is completely over him.

You know another thing that I loved about LoVe last night? After Kendall interrupted all the spinning and the kissage and was walking away, Logan could barely contain his joy at finally being with Veronica. He was dancy and swaying and oh so cute. I can't help it. I love happy Logan. He was oh so giddy. And that brings a smile to my face.

I think RT has to have gotten IT by now. When you have like 99% of your fanbase screaming the chant of LoVe then it is pretty hard to ignore.

:fingers crossed and hoping that we get more than summer LoVing flashbacks in S3;

I actually LIKE that Kendall popped in too. It seemed like a pointed note that she just didn't matter in the scheme of things anymore to either one. Put it to rest. (And of course Kendall went in and saw her future husband who she is totally marrying for love!)

My e-mail isn't letting me comment, so I've popped in again.

I've added you to my friends list :) Thank you for wanting to add me!

Come on over and take a look around.

I'm very busy right now - almost *too* busy - with the co-op show that I'm stage managing plus beta-ing a Spuffy story, plus trying to deal with renovations in our house, and a mouse that was in the house, etc., etc., etc. LOL!

Aren't you glad you friended me?

Cool! We probably won't be in each other's posts about Spike/Buffy though as I'm a virulent non B/S fan. Sorry. Loved Spike, but actually stopped watching it when they hooked up, it was just morally wrong, imo. And no, I'm not an Angel-Buffy fan, I liked Buffy and Xander, but I was okay with B/A and X/C.

But VM and Colbert! Ah, long live Stephen Colbert!

Please don't be sorry about that - although you might gag at all the Spuffy icons I use :)

I rarely do posts about B/S (although I love them dearly), but 'live and let live' re: other people's ships. I've had it with the shipper wars in other fandoms.

Did you like Xander and Anya?

Besides, how could I *not* friend you? With that gorgeous icon of Rhett and Scarlett :)
Arabianarabian on May 10th, 2006 11:49 pm (UTC)
I was okay on Anya/Xander, but in my heart, I always wanted Xander and Buffy.

Sigh, I love GWTW and that is my FAVE pic from the movie.

Also, I wasn't a Catherine/Vincent fan, but my mother (who died in 2001) was a huge shipper and whenever I see your icons of them, I get a happy memory of my mom.

Well, in some universes, Buffy and Xander *are* together :)

My mother *loved* GWTW, so your icon makes me smile too.

I'm so sorry about your mother. I adore Catherine and Vincent - I'm just sorry there aren't that many really good screencaps out there. I got some of these from 'A Happy Life' (my favourite episode *ever*) from lj user 'Mr. Big'.
