Pick five of your favourite TV shows, in no order, and answer the following questions. Don't cheat! (If you're going to do the meme, pick your shows before reading the questions!)

1. Grey's Anatomy
2. Friends
3. Will & Grace
4. Charmed
5. The L Word


Who's your favorite character in 2?
What an impossible choice... I'd have to go with Phoebe. She's very lovable.

Who's your least favorite character in 1?
It has to be a regular? Hmm... Chief? Erica? Seriously... I love them all.

What's your favorite episode of 4?
Little Box of Horrors.

What's your favorite season of 5?
Fourth season (Jodi ftw! and JCap!).

Who is your favorite ship in 3?
Can you have a ship there? :p I liked Ben/Will a lot.

Who is your anti-ship in 2?
Hmm... Joey/Rachel.

How long have you watched 1?
Six years, baby!

How did you become interested in 3?
It aired before Friends at the time :-)

Who's your favorite actor/actress in 4?
Rose McGowan

Which do you prefer, show 1, 2 or 5?
Grey's, though there was a time Friends would've won.

Which show have you seen more episodes of, 1 or 3?
Will & Grace, but they have more epi's...

If you could be anyone from 4, who would you be?
Piper! or Paige... she has the cooler power.

How would you kill off your favorite character in 1?
Noooo... I can't kill Arizona. :O If it were to happen... she'd be shot.

Give a random quote from 1.
- Take off my gauze paws? -

Would a 3/4 crossover work?
Haha... no.

Pair 2 characters in 1 that would make an unlikely but strangely okay couple.
Arizona/Teddy, though Arizona really, REALLY belongs with Callie.

Has 5 inspired you in any way?
*blush* I really, really can't discuss that.

Overall, which show has a better cast, 2 or 4?
Friends... it's like a golden cast.

Which has better theme music, 3 or 5?
Five.. it's so catchy! The piano in W&G can get me annoyed sometimes...

Do you think society puts too much pressure on people to be in relationships and/or have children? Do you think this ostracizes people who would be perfectly content to remain single and/or child-free? Is this pressure worse around the holidays?


You know, it might. I have total respect for people who want to be single and/or child free, but I think people might frown upon it. Maybe because most people have the desire to love and be loved themselves. I dunno. The pressure definitely is worse around the holidays. I experience that myself, too. But that might be because I'm hard on myself around these times.

Title: A Splendored Thing
Author: addictt24
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: Callie/Arizona
Summary: Callie finds Arizona at her apartment... singing.
Disclaimer: I do not own Grey's, the characters, Moulin Rouge, or the song Elephant Love Medley. This is just for pure amusement.

Author's Note: Usually I don't like songfics much, but this just popped into my head and needed to be written. While reading, it's best to listen to: "Elephant Love Medley " of the movie Moulin Rouge. You can find it on YouTube.

The fic isn't beta'd (sorry!), so all mistakes are mine! 

 

It had been two weeks since Arizona gave me the key to her apartment. There is nothing I’d rather do than watching her cook a meal or sitting with her on the couch watching television after a long shift at the hospital. Those moments had become rare in the past two months. With my extra shifts in the ER and our shifts never ending simultaneously we only had a few times a week together. Today was one of those times. Her shift ended at lunch time and Mark took over the last hour of my twelve-hour shift in the ER.

I look at the key again and my lips curl into a smile. Standing in front of her door, I hear the muffled sound of a song playing pretty loud behind the green door. She’s pretty lucky she doesn’t have to share the apartment and that her neighbors are nearly deaf. When I open the door, I can hear the words of the song more clearly and I recognize the lyrics. A song from the Moulin Rouge soundtrack. Somehow I’m not surprised.

"Just one night, just one night," I hear her sing together with Christian, the English writer. What’s his name again? Right, Ewan McGregor. "There’s no way, ‘cause you can’t pay." I quietly chuckle at the change of her voice with the character. Singing a duet solo. I walk towards her bedroom, the place where her voice seems to be coming from. "In the name of love, one night in the name of love!"

My smile turns into a grin when I see her stand in front of the mirror, looking at herself sing along and making dramatic facial expressions. "You crazy fool, I won’t give into you." She turns away from the mirror, walking towards her closet. "Don’t leave me this way. I can’t survive, without your sweet love, oh baby, don’t leave me this way." You’d guess she would’ve seen me by now, but she turns her back to me. Nothing indicates that she has seen me so far.

"You think that people would’ve had enough of silly love songs..." she quietly mutters together with Nicole Kidman.

I decide to sing along with Ewan McGregor’s part, to let her know I’m standing in the doorway. "I look around me, and I see it isn’t so," I sing and she turns around immediately. "Oh no," I add to it, smiling. Her eyes grow wide and her cheeks are getting a pinkish color.

"Some people wanna fill the world with silly love songs," she mumbles, not sure to stop or continue singing.

"Well, what’s wrong with that?" I sing encouraging, "I’d like to know." I walk towards her, taking off my leather jacket. "’Cause here I go again." She looks surprised when I pull her towards me. "Love lifts us up where we belong. Where the eagles fly, on a mountain high."

"Love makes us act like we are fools," she sings with a large smile on her face, making her dimples appear. "Throw our lives away, for one happy day."

"We could be heroes, just for one day," I tuck a string of her golden hair behind her hair as I sing.

She puts on a strict face and walks towards the other side of the room . "You, you will be mean," she sings while pointing her finger at me.

"No, I won’t," I say with a chuckle, laughing at her facial expression and pointy finger.

"And I, I.. I’ll drink all the time," she replies with rolling eyes and a dramatic sigh.

"We should be lovers!"

"We can’t do that," she retorts with the same stern face.

"We should be lovers, and that’s a fact," I try again and she smiles at me.

"Though nothing will keep us together," she walks towards me again.

"We could steal time," I stretch out my arms and take her hands in my own. "Just for one day," she starts to sing with me. "We can be heroes, forever and ever. We can be heroes, forever and ever. We can be heroes," now the hard solo parts are coming up. Ewan McGregor’s meets Dolly Parton. "Just because I, and I will always love you..."

She looks at me with big blue eyes. "I.. and I.." I take a deep breath and put my arms around the small of her back. Together we sing the end of the sentence. "..can’t help loving you."

I feel her arms around my neck as she sings the last part. "How wonderful life is.. now you’re in the world."

I lean in as we hear the operatic voice of a man closing the song. As our lips meet, I can’t help thinking of that one returning sentence in Moulin Rouge that kept me fascinated for many years. Now, for the first time, I really understand the meaning of it and I can’t help thinking how true it is.

The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is to love and be loved in return.

.. to post again after about 6 months.

A lot has happened. A new school year has begun, obviously. It's hard and takes a lot of my time, but I can manage. Other than school, I still work and act. I'm in two plays at the moment *yay for me* and I'm auditioning for the third.. (although one of the two I'm in now is going to be over within 2 weeks..) :
 


Yep, the play is called Blauwe Liefde.  It's a school musical.. And one of the best things about it: dear Niah is coming to watch it! She's staying with me and that Saturday we're going to have a high tea & we're going shopping.
The other play I'm in is called Ontspoord. It's pretty nifty.

So yeah, that's my life lately... My cat had a litter of three 3 months ago, that was fun too :)

That was about it, I guess. I'm happy!

So, I've had three weeks of vacation until now. Five more weeks to go!

What I've done so far? Working. A lot of working. I still clean, like last year, but I also have a new job. On tops of the other one. I've been working in a nursing home. It's so.. exhausting, impressive, and shocking at times. I'm learning lots of things! So that's good.

I went to Paris yesterday. It was so awesome. I went with my sister, with the bus. That bus-part was crap. I went to:
Jardin du Luxembourg > It's pretty much a park, with a lot of green and statues. Incredibly beautiful. 
The Louvre  > I didn't get to see all of it, but I did see: Mona Lisa (it isn't that small as everyone told me. And I got to stand pretty close!), L'Amour & Psyche (my absolute favourite statue of all times. I LOVE IT!), Venus of Milo (not that spectacular?), a great painting I don't know the name of (grrr) and a lot more over there. :-)
Napoleon's Tomb > It's big o.O & impressive. And not that pretty btw. 

That was pretty much it. We wanted to go to a graveyard & a few opera's, but we didn't have the time...

Because all of that, + I didn't get sleep in those 24 hours, and a one-night sleep didn't help much.. I'm drained!

Edit: You guys keep an eye on my fanfiction.net profile. In a while, something new is gonna come up!

I can't believe I haven't updated in three months.. Well, actually I can, 'cause it's a fact, but okay.

So, what I have been up to.. The regular. Sleep, school, homework, work/drama/sports, sleep again, school again, etc.

I have the most boring and useless life ever, it seems.. Well, one day I'll appreciate my school-years (or so my Dad says).

Lately I've been listening to the audio book of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime.. What a fantastic book!
Oh, right, what I also did the last three months was watching all the episodes of Friends, season 1-10.. What an amazing show! Best comedy show I've ever seen so far.. Too bad it's over, but really.. I don't think they can pull off another season or a movie, like Sex and the City does.. [Which in this case, I'm very happy with! SatC never dies. Ever.]

I also bought my first iPod this week. It's the iPod Nano third generation, color blue :-)

My plans for tomorrow.. I'm going to my friend C., to bake two apple pie's (for lots of people) and to work on an assignment.. And probably play some piano, but I'm not sure about that. I also have to clean some things, and pack and unpack some stuff. I also have to study hard for this school exam I have on Monday.. It's this subject.. I cannot translate it into English, but it has to do with the society, how people think about other people, and how this effect our choice when it comes to politics.. And then a lot about politics.. ZzzZzz..

*I drifted off to sleep. Sorry.*

..time I went out at night. Well, at least, the first time I had a drink in a pub (tea, nothing special) after 23h. 

At first, N. and I went to see K., she performed a song in a playbackshow from her swimming-club.  What we didn't know, was that she could perform after two hours. Two hours in a little room with lots of people. So, when she was done, we decided to have a drink in the pub, called "Friendship". [Beautiful, isn't it? =P]

So, that was a nice first. But now I'm tired. And N. too, who is still sitting next to me. It's almost midnight.. zZzZz.
