*giggles* Watching The Daily Show right now and it's very cathartic after having spent the entire evening sobbing my way through a brilliant but depressing AU future-dystopian-America fakenews fic where Huckabee becomes president and turns the US into an uber-religious dystopian dictatorship and all our boys have to flee the US or risk persecution. It's a deeply chilling look at what the US could become if things had happened differently (though this was pre-election, so more of a 'what if?' fic... it's based on the idea of McCain winning the election but dying of a heart attack several monthes later, and Huckabee taking over. Shudder. Scary thing is, something similar could have happened but with Palin... hopefully not like this, though!), but also a beautiful look at the possibilites of hope under such a regime... and honest to god, by the last few chapters I was a sobbing mess. Haven't cried this much over something fictional since, I think, Deathly Hallows?? Wow. That's saying something. :)
Anyway, it's called "The 28th Amendment"
. One of the best fics I've read in awhile, and while it depressed the fuck out of me... it was worth it. I keep running over bits in my mind that just broke my fucking heart... so many things that stand out and were such vivid images.
So yeah, watching Jon on TDS all normal and giggly and happy and sarcastic is a relief... and LOL at the John Oliver segment - would have been even more awesome if Anderson had made an appearance beyond briefly popping up in the background (presumably actual CNN footage reappropriated) while John was running around the CNN studio...
Yay, Colbert Report on now - aww, seeing Stephen is making me all sniffly, too... dammit. ;_;
Okay, bed now. Will watch TCR in the morning like I usually do. Gotta watch House at some point, too - got completely wrapped up in this fic sometime round 7:30 and didn't look up until about 10 when I finished it.
