seeker: forehead kiss

hello, shiny new fandom

I have a shiny new fandom to play with and it's called Legend of the Seeker (based on the Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind).  I like new fandoms *nods*
 
It's got CUTE BOY! in leather with SWORD-TWIRLING!! (man, I love sword-twirling and in ep6 I got shirtless sword-twirling, w00t!) and PRETTY LADY! who has flowing hair and a magical white gown that never seems to get dirty and is a KICKASS FIGHTER!! \o/ Not heavy on the slash but that's cool. There's Merlin for that ;) This show fits right in there with Merlin and Robin Hood. Cheesy but fun. It's been compared to Xena/Hercules but I never watched those shows so can't say if that's accurate.

The amount of times the words "seeker" and "prophecy" and "destiny" have been used so far is LOL-worthy and I've only seen 7 eps! "Are you the seeker? The prophecy is true?" "You ARE the seeker and it's your destiny!" "I am the seeker!" "He's the seeker! Kill him!" LOL

Craig Horner, the lead, is Australian but he uses an American accent in the show. Who made that stupid decision?

Fandom bonus: the show has already been renewed for a 2nd season so there's more sword-twirling goodness to come!!

In other fandom happy news -- Olli FINALLY returns to VL today and my favourite soap couple will be back together again!! I need to go check YouTube to see if the clip is up!

Sad fandom news -- RIP Kim Manners. You are missed. :(
