Have you guys locked in your nominations yet? Perhaps like my general ways, I am making this harder than it needs to be but the plan is to go ahead and lock it in today just in case AO3 gets weird on the last day (23rd). Right now I have two definite spots filled with Tenderness and Jennifer's Body but I'm still dawdling on the last two, probably TASM and maybe either The Bridge or perhaps The Boondocks but I am so hesitant to foist that canon on someone because the tone would most likely be the hardest thing to get right.

I saw Sleepy Hollow and liked it; the show is bizarre but it's not overly serious and they are not dragging out getting people to believe the insanity; I loved it when the other cops saw the headless horseman.

I have totally not done my nominations yet, but I'm going to put my definite two or three in today and then haunt the nomination reporting post some more.

I assume you kept up with The Bridge? I forgot to record it one week and never picked it back up.

I think my favorite thing about the first episode of Sleepy Hollow was that they didn't put Abby directly into a box of sacrificing her career to hide her "crazy" investigation, so I'm looking forward to seeing where that goes with the chief or whoever that bossman is.

The chief totally read as suspicious of Abby for generic cop reasons to me. I don't think it's what's happening here, but that would be a brilliant idea for this setting, for a villain to manipulate the hero to cover things up or give them a rational explanation by appearing totally focused on paperwork or prosecutable cases or whatever.

I guess we'll have to wait and see what other characters wander through and where they go with it, but even with Cho and the secret investigation, the pilot seemed to me to be much more straight up battle between good and evil than tricky shadow conspiracy.

That one glance of his was Super Suspicious! I totally thought he was going to be evil before the John Cho reveal. Now I'm not sure if that was just meant to make us think he was the bad guy so as to make the John Cho reveal that much more surprising or if they really are both evil. (If it's the latter, I'm guessing that we won't actually find out for quite some time. He'll be better at keeping his evil under wraps than John Cho was.)

Tomorrow is my day off, so I'm planning on going through the post/spreadsheet again to see what's been nominated and then maybe poking around through librarything to see what I've read this past year and that sort of thing, since I never think to make a list of stuff I want for yuletide and then when it comes down to it my mind goes totally blank.

It's only been one episode, but I'm really liking Sleepy Hollow so far! Not sure I will want to write or request it for Yuletide, but I'm definitely looking forward to reading some stuff for it. I hope there's a good bunch.
