OH SKINS, I DO ENJOY YOU.

I haven't really read any other reaction posts yet, and I haven't dared venture over to [livejournal.com profile] skinsfans, so I don't have much idea about general fandom response to the finale, but I thought it was lovely. I didn't mind that it only focused on Effy and the boys, because everybody else's storylines were wrapped up pretty satisfactorily last week. BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, WHY DID NOBODY INFORM ME THAT COOK'S DAD WAS SUPERHANS?

OH COOK. Just break my fucking heart, why don't you? I JUST, I LOVE THAT BOY. And it's strange, because I think the way he feels about Effy is the way that Effy feels about Freddie; his whole "I'm gonna keep her," thing smacked of desperation, like he was projecting all his desires for salvation or whatever onto her. AND THE CRYING AT THE END, WITH HIS DAD, OH MY DAYS. COOK. ♥ His hand was clenched so tightly around those keys.

FREDDIE. Hmmm. I was amused that he was caught wanking, because, well, he is something of a wanker. But I think under the layers of douche he might be alright. Maybe. I DID NOT APPRECIATE HIS BIG SPEECH TO EFFY ABOUT HOW EVERYTHING EVER IS HER FAULT. WHATEVER, FUN SPONGE. But I'm unsurprised by the Freddie/Effy ending, and I'm way more invested in the Freddie/Cook reconciliation. OH BOYYYYYS ♥. THERE WERE HUGS AND NOBODY KISSED ANYBODY ELSE VIOLENTLY.

JJ. Oh my days, JJ completely fucking OWNED the finale for me. Telling Freddie he's boring! Quitting! Throwing the toilet seat over his shoulder and not looking back! THE GORGEOUS, GORGEOUS SCENE WITH EFFY'S MUM ON THE HILL. Winning the steeplechase! DOING VOODOO WITH COOK AND FREDDIE'S FINGERS. Once again being the one to acknowledge that "EVERYONE LOVES EFFY BECAUSE SHE IS MYSTERIOUS AND HOT" is utter bullshit! ULTIMATUM TIME. Driving the boat! OH JJ, YOU ARE PERFECTION.

OH SERIES THREE. You were messy and joyful and breathless and really rather fucked-up at times, but I loved you still. NOT UNLIKE A CERTAIN MISS STONEM. OH FINALE. Here, look at a picspam!

And on that note, VID REC! [livejournal.com profile] lovestories has worked her magic again, and gone digging around the crazy messed-up head of Effy. Colorblind. IT IS A THING OF GREAT BEAUTY; all intimacy and distance and sexy young things.

While we're on the subject of vidding, the Return of Hood last night had me craving some fandom circa late 2007, so I tracked down, among other things, [livejournal.com profile] yorkshirewench's stuff. SPECIFICALLY, BOYFRIENDS 2.0. Ohhh, Allan/Will, I miss you so! iMeem is being ridiculously difficult today, so who knows if you'll be able to see this, but: How to be Dead. And, BECAUSE I CAN, I'm embedding the gorgeous, gorgeous vid that encapsulates the best parts of the episode that made me fall utterly in love with this ridiculous show.

And look! Sam Troughton continues to be roughly seventeen thousand kinds of adorable!

Also, [livejournal.com profile] frak_spoilers is shutting down. WOE. Go and revel in the BSG-shaped crack ♥

Also also, Skins fans, TAKE A GOOD HARD LOOK AT THE MOTHERFUCKING BOAT.

How are you? ♥
