* ''DowntonAbbey'' - Gorgeous period drama with a huge cast of complex characters. YES. * ''The Hour'' - A Cold War spy thriller wrapped in a character drama with a stunning aesthetic, flawless acting, and the most perfectly calibrated character dynamics you'll find anywhere. I. Am. Obsessed.

Added DiffLines:
* ''ASongOfIceAndFire'': To an extent, this also translates to ''GameOfThrones'', though I don't have many ships based purely on the first book, so we'll have to wait until next season and see. ** Renly/Loras - My heart is breaking for them. ** Theon/Asha - And so GeorgeRRMartin contributes to the list of writers conspiring to destroy my sibling incest [[{{Squick}} squick]]. Their chemistry is absurd. That first scene together? ''Wow''. ** Jaime/Brienne - So much badass, so many self-esteem issues . . . they are made of awesome. ** I like Dany/Drogo a lot, but Dany/Jorah is beginning to steal my heart. Iain Glenn may have something to do with that. ** Tyrion/Shae/Bronn - Because Shae makes Tyrion happy (and he deserves that), but the dynamic with Bronn is too awesome to ignore.

* {{Shakespeare}}: I've made small contributions to a number of related pages, most recently adding quite a few tropes to ''TitusAndronicus'' and ''TroilusAndCressida''.

[[folder:Things I Have Edited]] These are the pages I feel I've made significant contributions to. It's a fairly short list, as I've just become comfortable with major editing and fluent enough to know what tropes to add. * ''GameOfThrones'': I've been involved since the beginning, so I feel the strongest attachment here. * ''SlingsAndArrows'': Sadly doesn't have a huge fanbase, so I try to give it bunches of love. * {{Shakespeare}}: I've made small contributions to a number of related pages, most recently adding quite a few tropes to ''TitusAndronicus'' and ''TroilusAndCressida''.

* ''{{Supernatural}}'': Dean/Castiel. I haven't even gotten to the point where Castiel appears and it already makes me squeeful.

to:
* ''{{Supernatural}}'' - I'll admit, the prettiness of the leads is part of the attraction. But it's also snappily written, highly interested in character development, intriguing from a mythos perspective, able to pull off tones ranging from full-blown comedy to pure horror, and more complex than it may seem at first blush.

* GeorgeRRMartin

to:
* ''GameOfThrones'' - It has barely started and I'm already obsessed. Lush, complex, gritty, political fantasy = love FOREVER. * ''TheBorgias'' - Beautifully shot, beautifully costumed, beautifully acted, and full of beautiful people. What more could you ask for? Besides, Cesare is so attractive it's almost beyond belief.

** Eleven/River - River is so badass. I think she's a match for the Doctor. She may be a better match for Twelve or something, but not being a time-travelling alien, I can't know.

** Eleven/River - River is so badass. I think she's a match for the Doctor. She may be a better match for Twelve or something, but not being a time-travelling alien, I can't know.Firmly cemented by their ''adorable'' flirting in "The Impossible Astronaut."

Added DiffLines:
* ''TheBorgias'': ** Eleven/River Cesare/Lucrezia - River The eyesex is so badass. I think she's intense that they have become my first incestuous ship. Wow. ** Cesare/Micheletto - The whipping scene? Yeah. ''Damn''. ** For that matter, Cesare has smoldering chemistry with anyone he has a match for scene with, to the Doctor. She may be a better match for Twelve or something, but not being a time-travelling alien, point where I can't know.often find myself squicked by the implications. But ''holy hell'' it's sexy. ** Lucrezia/Giulia - They're so pretty together. And the kissing practice was beyond LesYay.
