OMG, thank you LJ Spotlight for leading me to [ profile] ontd_tennis! This is AMAZING and gives me much hope for the future of my one lonely little sports fandom!

Poor Rafa. Losing is one thing, but not even being able to finish the match is something else entirely. Hopefully it's nothing serious, just a twinge in the knee that will turn out to be nothing. But this is something that they've been talking about for years with Rafa - that grinding style of his that's so successful absolutely destroys the body.

Fucking sucks. Let's hope for a triumphant return at the French and maybe a goddamn Fedal final - because it's been too long already.

1. WoW.

2. New SPN being funny and adorable and fantastic.

3. Semi-confirmed season six!

4. The fact that I totally just typed "season sex." Yes please?

5. Roger and Rafa still both in the Australian Open. Keep it up, boys!

6. Making a fucking boatload of money in my new position at work.

And, in conclusion:

7. WoW.

Last night's dream, which just ended: super-hot Fedal sexing, followed by a montage (yes, literally - [ profile] chez_amanda and I sitting in a theatre watching a montage) of Jensen and Jared being adorable and hilarious - like an unseen gag reel! YAY SUBCONSCIOUS!

Also, a meme, stolen from the aforementioned [ profile] chez_amanda:

Choose five series (no peeking before you choose them), list them, and then answer the questions behind the cut.

1. Supernatural
2. True Blood
3. Merlin
4. Torchwood
5. Firefly

The Questions )

Tennis and True Blood today.

Tennis was good and bad - Roger won, Rafa lost. Roger/Del Potro in the finals tomorrow. Poor Rafa - I feel like if he can just get to the end of a season without being injured or broken down, he can absolutely win the Open and get that career slam. Whether that will ever happen or not...who's to say? Roger looked absolutely AMAZING, though, outside of his serve. That man is blessed by the tennis gods, I swear. He'd better take home his sixth Open title in a row tomorrow - revenge for Del Potro beating Rafa and cheating us all out of a Fedal final! Sadly, this is the end of tennis until January. Good thing I have SPN and all my other fall shows to keep me amused!

True Blood finale was pretty awesome - WAY better than last season's, anyway. I really have no complaints, aside from a depressing lack of Eric. The Sookie/Bill stuff at the end made me squee like a little girl! My favorite part, though: "Worship him, bitches!" Fabulous. I want season three NOW!

Also, did anyone else get distinct Bill/Sam vibes from that episode? I kind of totally want fic now.

Security increased after man kisses Nadal at Open


In more serious news, it's actually possible that we might finally get a Roger/Rafa final at the US Open. That would mean they've played each other in finals at all the grand slams, which would make me happy based on the symmetry alone.

Yay tennis!

What can I say about the AO final? It was an absolutely incredible match, nearly on par with last year's Wimbledon for most of it. But what really got to me was the aftermath, Roger bursting into tears at the trophy presentation and Rafa going over to console him. I mean, my god. Forget the shipping for a moment. That's amazing drama all by itself. I almost cried. Just absolutely jaw-droppingly good stuff, and I was going in with sky-high expectations.

And now, I'm going to go collapse into bed, because I've been watching tennis since 3:30 this morning. Totally worth it.

"It's like shooting really gay fish in a sparkly barrel."

That it is, my friends. That it is. 2009 Australian Open starts tomorrow. BRING ON THE SLASH.

Stealing and reposting from fedal_slash, because I want to keep it forever! This is a clip from an article written after the 2006 Australian Open.

So much love! )

Is that not one of the slashiest bits of real life you've ever read?

And Rafa is golden!!!

You know, I would have loved to see the boys play each other in the singles final, but this is definitely the next best thing.

I need an icon celebrating their matching gold medals now! *grins sleepily, but happily*

Good Day

Yay for my Rogi winning doubles gold! He played beautifully, and he was so damn emotional on court, yelling out and fist-pumping and even smiling, which I've NEVER seen him do during a match. All the hugging and high-fiving and touching makes me wish desperately for some Roger/Rafa doubles play!

Quote of the match, by one of the commentators: "Federer's running around like crazy out there...he's turned into Nadal all of a sudden!"

In addition...I could read Sam/Dean and J2 fic for the rest of my life and be perfectly happy. It's SO DAMN GOOD. I've never been in a fandom with so many talented and wonderful people, and I love, love, love it.

I needed to write fic to help me deal with the loss. This is it.

Title: The Right Words

Summary: Roger loses. Rafa tries to make it better.

The Right Words )

Some absolutely beautiful pics from the Wimbledon final. I love these boys - so much touching! How could you look at these and NOT think slashy thoughts?


More under the cut... )
sulwen: (roger_rafa1)

Dear LORD, that was the best match I've EVER seen.
sulwen: (roger_rafa2)
Dear god, Federer and Nadal are KILLING ME. The match is RIDICULOUSLY close, and now there's another rain delay at 2 sets, 2 games all, at deuce, and they might not even get to finish tonight. That's just CRUEL.

*dies of the tension*
sulwen: (roger_rafa1)
So we're edging ever closer to a Roger/Rafa final at Wimbledon, as they both have made it to the semis! I know everyone said it was almost inevitable, but I had my hopes totally crushed at the Australian Open and even now, when it's almost said and done, I still fear to get my hopes too high.

That said...ROGER/RAFA FINAL! I love Roger, but I really think this could be Rafa's year. All I really want, though, is an awesome, exciting, roller-coaster of a match - just like last year's. And net-hugging. Gotta have that. *grin*

*new icon love!*
sulwen: (twincest)
So I read this sentence: "Rafael Nadal extended his winning streak at Monte Carlo to 22 consecutive matches, topping Roger Federer 7-5, 7-5 in the 2008 finals."

And my brain's reaction is to go fangirl crazy over this choice of words: "topping Roger Federer"


I cannot WAIT to watch their match tomorrow! It's pretty much the only thing that could get me up at nine in the morning voluntarily. :-)

You know, I just can't help it. Mpreg freaks me out. I wish I liked it, because there are some great fic writers out there who do mpreg, but I just can't. It's too weird - even in fandoms where it can be explained, like Smallville (alien reproduction!) or Harry Potter (potion gone bad!).

ETA: For some serious hilarity about Superman and mpreg, click here:

Actually, I take it back. There is one way I can enjoy mpreg - when it's part of crackfic. I remember one Jon/Stephen fic in particular that was hilariously that's ok. But when people try to make it serious, it makes me shudder - and not in a good way.

On a side note, I stayed up until six AM last night watching Rafa lose his semifinal at the Australian Open to the unseeded Tsonga. I am in the process of ficcing away my disappointment and praying that Federer kicks the kid's ass in the final.

And winter sucks. Hardcore. Most of the time I don't mind Ohio, but I HATE Ohio in winter.
