Last two top five lists (...for now).

From Anonymous Lurker Chris:

Moments that Made You Want to Throw Your TV Out the Window

An utterly random list, because apparently TV makes me want to defenstrate things A LOT and it's nearly impossible to narrow down to five?

1. Xander's speech and Buffy running after Riley in "Into the Woods" - There are probably quite a few Buffy moments I could've chosen (including my similarly-themed complaint with "As You Were"), but we'll go with this one, and here's why.

2. Bones' 100th episode - AKA the episode that caused my epic break-up with Bones.

3. All of Dexter season 6 - I'm not really sure this needs further explanation. Terrible, terrible season of television, although if I had to pick a particular rage-inducing moment, the idea that Deb is in love with Dexter was probably the worst.

4. Lost season 3 love triangle of DOOM - You could not have constructed a more obnoxious and loathsome love triangle than Jack/Kate/Sawyer if you tried. I hated both options and mostly just wanted it to go away.

5. Klaus compelling Stefan in "The Reckoning" - Again, a lot of TVD moments I could've chosen, lol, but this one inspired a capslocky rant.

Top 5 Fanfics of All Time

This was another really hard list to put together, since I hardly ever read fanfic anymore, and it's been so long since I was paying attention to Buffy fandom in particular that I've forgotten most of what I did read way back in the day.

1. The Barbverse series, by [personal profile] rahirah - Epic, sprawling post-The Gift AU that anyone in Buffy fandom has probably already read. Buffy and Spike have a passel of children, grow old together, and fight evil. It's all very domestic. Except when it's epic.

2. "My Life Closed Twice," by [livejournal.com profile] anaross - Another BtVS one that sticks out in my memory. Future fic in which Spike teaches poetry and Buffy learns things. About poetry. And Spike.

3. Responsible Science series, by [archiveofourown.org profile] lettered - The Avengers is pretty much the only fandom I'm still reading, and perhaps it's jumping the gun to call this one of the best "of all time" when I only just read it last week, but it gave me all the Bruce feels.

4. The Last Love Song of Anthony E. Stark, by [archiveofourown.org profile] jibrailis - Steve/Tony is probably my Avengers OTP (I love everyone with everyone but I love those two the mostest) and memory/identity loss is a theme I love seeing explored.

5. "Snapshots Left on the Negative," by [livejournal.com profile] cypanache - A now-extremely-AU Ben/Leslie fic that takes a much angstier approach to getting them together than the pure unadulterated joy of Parks & Rec canon.

One of the worst moments of television ever.

re: the first list -- lol, you know how I feel about 3 & 5. I have such nostalgia over that Stefan rant! <3

Agree on all counts. Notes on Bones and Dexter: 1) Brennan gave birth in a manger... So, good on you for making a timely break from that show; 2) Yes, yes, and more yes about Dexter. Has anyone from the show ever rationalized the Dex/Deb divergence, or at least attempted to rationalize? Her squicky feelings for Dex aren't in the books so this comes across as a clumsy nod to fanfic writers or something.
