Twelve hours...  
It is just about 2am here and that means in 12 hours, USA will be starting the second in the SVU marathon episodes. Loss.

Yes. Loss will be on in just over 12 hours. Followed by the entirety of Teh Casey's 5th season episodes, I think. But that's not the problem. That's the upside, the happiness, the joy!

See, my problem? I've never seen Loss. Ever.

I heard SM was leaving the show and I hadn't been following it all that closely because of my illness and then when I finally started watching again there was this simply adorable redhead in the ADA spot and no one talked about Alex anymore. I must have watched about 6 eps before I started wondering what happened to her. How did they write her out?

I started reading A/O fic to see if that would help. After the 5th one that mentioned Witness Protection, I finally mentioned something to my mother about it. Now my mother does not like SVU. She will watch any other cop show including CSI but she cannot watch SVU because it deals with sexual crimes and children. So imagine my surprise when she looks at me like I've suddenly started speaking Ewok.

"You mean you don't know what happened to Alex? How is that possible?"

I stammered something inane and she said, "Well, it was only one of the saddest things I've ever seen on TV." She proceeded to give me the highlights and then she said "Then Alex died. And those poor detectives, you know, the ones she works with? They were just destroyed. They didn't want to go on. Everything seemed so pointless. And then the FBI agent came and got--who are they?--Olivia and Elliot? He took them to this parkinglot and there was a van. And he opened the back door and there was Alex. Alive. But she had to go into Witness Protection. It was very sad. Very sad. Olivia was really upset."

::blink blink::

It's always a bad sign when your mother knows more about A/O than you do.

So I've never seen it. Yes. True.

And tomorrow it comes on just before Teh Casey. And my beta/editor wants me to watch Loss before I start with Serendipity because of the backstory for Olivia in our next fic. And I am already dreading it. I don't do grief well. Sigh...

And if you think that is just unbelievable, I also never saw Ghost. Our local paper wrote a little snippet about SM returning for sweeps and the idiot writer spoiled the ending. So I knew she was going back into WP. And I didn't watch it. I felt it was pointless to watch Olivia go though all of that emotional turmoil.

::rolling eyes at self::

Guess who has to watch that one too? If they get that far, that is. I have no idea how far in the schedule they will get.

Anyway. Just thought I would vent a little. And let you know how very hopeless I truly am. LOL

Oy oy oy. Okay. I am a Casey fan. And I did not like Alex that much, but Loss was pretty sad. But it wasn't horrible. It's harsh, Olivia's reaction is very moving, but it's also very swift. And you know what's ahead! Teh Casey! Teh Diane! Teh hotness! Hang in there. ::huggles::

You are correct of course. Swift, you say? Good on that point too. I can handle swift.

The funniest thing: the more I work on the epic C/O I am writing, the more I feel like Alex and Liv would never have worked out in the long run, even if she hadn't gone into WP.

I liked Alex.

But I adore, love, and worship Teh Casey!

Oh, hon...I feel for you on that. I've seen Night twice now and it doesn't get easier. And Casey...poor brave Casey.

Well, you just have to see it. That's all there is to it. Hope you get to soon!
