Age. Fac ut gaudeam

Spring. It’s a time of new beginnings, it’s a time of finalities. Which do you consider the more predominant? On one hand, new life is beginning; on another, more superificial side, television shows are all experiencing season finales!

For example, the House. M.D. finale (watch for spoilers): Such a heartbreaking moment when Amber died and, needless to point out, House and Wilson’s friendship has been irrevocably altered. The whole Cuddy/House thing is rather adorable though, I must admit. It was somewhat unexpected that Amber actually died; personally, I kept expecting them to come up with some sort of miracle cure. Alas, it was an empty hope. And Thirteen has Huntington’s! So much sadness to come. And even worse? A possible Actors’ Strike may be in store, when the Actors’ Guild Contract ends in the near future. Apparently they’ve already started filming season 5 of House though, so it’s not all bad.

Onto even more superficial matters: GOSSIP GIRL. This season finale was… beyond unexpected. Glad to see Georgina get poetic justice though; she undoubtedly deserved it. Although a bit of pathos is generated; the way she was scared of her parents and whatnot. Blair can be so nasty sometimes, but her loyalty as a friend is amazing. Stupid Chuck, just left her hanging, to go after bloody Amelia. Like Dr. Phil says, “Past behaviour predicts future behaviour.”  Some things never change. The originally scripted version of the finale script where Bart Bass dies seems much better; would’ve paved the way nicely for Lilly/Rufus. And as for Dan and Serena… Georgina has really done a number on their relationship, hasn’t she?

Speaking of Gossip Girl, I’ve made some headway recently in terms of writing. Reuni enfin, which was long overdue for an update, has finally received one. It’s been a long nine months, but Chapter Nine is finally up (how fitting, numerically). It can be found at www.fanfiction.net/~frostedteardrops if anyone’s interested, under (no duh!) Reuni Enfin.

But onto the Gossip Girl-related writing news: I’ve expelled a new story, a Harry Potter fanfiction tinged with Gossip Girl. Wait, wait–just hear me out alright? I know it sounds unbelievably cliche, but I’ve tried to twist it into something original. It’s about after the Last Battle, starring Draco, Blaise, Pansy, and quite fittingly, Astoria.

I’m here to document every little misstep you take, every slip that comes out of your mouth, and finally, your very own fall from grace.
Can you handle the pressure, or will you crack long before then?

And who am I? That’s a secret I’ll never tell. Cheers,

xoxo, wondering witch.
