I finished binging and OMGGGGGG SUCH AN AMAZING SEASON

cut for spoilers )

I obviously need to make icons- any requests? 
nrgburst: (davina smile)
 I already made a GIFset BUT MY GIRL IS BACK ON The Originals NEXT WEEK! Literally the star of the promo! AHHHHHHH
So why is it Alaric on the preview image? UGH. Oh, and Tyler got a mention in the last ep and we found out which pack he was from, which OUCH.

TO spoilers for 4x07 )
nrgburst: (Fitz ZOMG)
WHEN IT COMES TO WHAT HAPPENED IN AOS What the-!!!!

Spoilers for AoS 4x20  )
nrgburst: (jyn may the force be with us)
Well, it's the 5th here BUT it's the 4th for most of you still (I think) so here are some recs to celebrate!



Knowing from the First by Merfilly (Rogue One, Chirrut/Baze, G, Soulmate identifying marks, 100 words)
Chirrut knew always.

I love how this fic explores how Chirrut can't see either mark, but he's still Chirrut: always certain.


Five Things that happened to Rogue One after Scarif by anonymous (Rogue One, ensemble, G, 1361 words)
It was surprisingly normal, afterwards.

Just a clever little team-as-family fic. I love the thoughts about the remnants of the kyber in the Death Star, and K-2's final line.


The Storm by anonymous (Original Trilogy/Sequel Trilogy, Han/Leia, G, 828 words)
Set between "Return of the Jedi" and "The Force Awakens"

Written based on this line in the Dear Yoda letter:
"If you want to show me a cataclysmic fight or the day Han left and didn't come back, go for it!"


Why do we hurt the ones we love the most? (Because we can.) This is a picture of a family breaking apart and those last ugly words. It's not pretty, but it's honest. 


Favorite Color by Merfilly (Prequel/Original Trilogy, Anakin Skywalker|Darth Vader&Luke Skywalker, G, 100 words)
A look inside Vader's mind at the moment. 

Another great drabble about a tiny detail: what was it like to perceive only a world in shades of red?

nrgburst: (Default)
I feel a little bad because there aren't many fandoms/ships in the exchange that I'm fannish about, but I got a wonderful gift in a smaller space fandom, so yay!

Here it is!

What it Takes to Survive- (Guardians of the Galaxy, Gamora&Nebula, Gamora&Peter Quill, T, 1183 words, Self-harm)
Five times Gamora's heart hardened and one time it was soft.


I love how meta-y this 5+1 is, how thoughtful the characterization and backstory details are! Really hoping the movie runs along the same lines because this is exactly how I read Gamora- she can't help but reach out even though Nebula's snarling with fury and would rather cut her own hand off than reach back.


And one more rec:

where is safety- (Rogue One, K-2SO& Cassian Andor, T, 1765 words)
“Curious.”

The teenager (Andor, Cassian. Second Lieutenant. Intelligence operative for the Alliance to Restore the Republic) looks up. His face remains impassive. His dark eyes catalogue every movement and sound.

“You do not trust your fellow Rebels, even though you should. Yet, you trust me enough to be your only companion on an Intelligence mission."


K-2 AND CASSIAN BACKSTORY!!! I actually asked for something like this for chocolate box and never got it but now I have read this and am totally satisfied! :DDDD The POV is K-2's and is so perfectly done, as are the steps they take toward friendship and trust over the years. Also the final line will sock you in the gut. <3


nrgburst: (Victory!)
For [personal profile] monanotlisa ! Not sure if you wanted solid color backgrounds/text etc. so I just went for my usual sharpen& curve/vibrance manipulation.

nrgburst: moana shouting what at the ocean (moana what)
Fox cancelled Pitch. :((((  I am so bummed. I know it was really not what the typical Fox viewer wanted to tune in for, but DAMN. I wish critical acclaim had more affect than $$$. :((( I also wish they'd put it on a better night to start- there was no way it was ever going to hack it on Thursdays against the lineup on ABC and CBS.
There is no talk of it being picked up by another network or Netflix/Hulu/Amazon. (Yet.) MPG and Kylie Bunbury stayed out of the running during pilot season in the hopes that it would be renewed. 

[community profile] space_swap  has been revealed! Honestly, hits/kudos are super low- not sure if it's because [community profile] maythe4thbewithyou  is imminent too. I know I'm waiting on making a rec post until there are more fics up my alley to glean through.

It's Golden Week here, and the weather is cooperating so I'm going to go dig in the garden a bit instead of being all mad and sad here at the keyboard. 



nrgburst: (Beck YES)
Got my Triple Line Bingo submitted LIKE A BOSS. :DDDD I'm so proud of myself- it's the biggest bingo I've done yet, and some of the pieces have been really well received. :D 


Going to step back on fannish commitments, but I still have icons to make for [personal profile] monanotlisa  and A Third Path to continue. Plus it's Sweeps time in TV land again so WHICH OF MY FAVES IS GOING TO BITE IT THIS YEAR? 

I'm betting on: somebody on Jane the Virgin and somebody on iZombie dying to free up $$$, since their ratings are lackluster. AoS has been building on its base (YES) so with Mace gone for cannon fodder gravitas, I'm thinking all of our mains will make it out of the Framework and into another season. I'm thinking Fitz will remain Framework!Fitz though. :/

Honestly, I want them to kill Elijah off on The Originals. Maybe it's because I find him boring af. Seriously, what is his character trajectory? Anybody? Ratings have been steady, especially for a Friday night show, so I'm still thinking they'll renew. *fingers crossed*

As for Grey's: I think April/Jackson and Amelia/Owen are going to get back together. And I think Rigg's long-lost wife is going to pop back up in the finale.

Too many social obligations this week combined with deadlines. ://// I'm not sure I'll be able to finish my triple [community profile] trope_bingo  because my husband volunteered us to host a BBQ this weekend too, after a week of surprise birthday lunches and appointments. WTFDUDE I'D RATHER BE WRITING *glares at the back of his head passive-aggressively* Plus now there's a DW code push on Sunday that cuts off more precious hours to submit.

Naturally I'm here whining about it instead of being productive! LOL

No reaction posts this week so just *muffled screaming* over AoS and Jane the Virgin! Haven't watched iZombie yet, and I'll wait on Grey's and TO too until I get sh*t done. I'll try to comment on reaction posts on my reading page later too- so happy to see other people enjoying the same stuff I'm enjoying on the reading page again! :DDDD
nrgburst: (davina smile)
First, I have to rec this AMAZING fic! It's hilarious, with gorgeous prose, characterization and the sweetest kind of Bagginshield angst.

Private Contemplations by Margo_Kim (M, The Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins/Thorin Oakenshield, masturbation)

Yes, that warning is correct. YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY IF YOU READ IT THOUGH. READ IT READ IT READ IT 



Also this morning we got confirmation!TO spoilers )


Also OMG AoS looks like it will continue to be mind blowingly good this week! 

DAISY AND MAY KICKING ASSSSSSSS!!! Apparently this particular stunt got Ming Na Wen yelled at by her mom. LOL 


So glad [community profile] space_swap  is posted! I was a total stalker and checked the tag set after my gift got posted and I'M SO EXCITED. LOL Hurry up May 1st! Now I need to get cracking on [community profile] trope_bingo  and I have to resist signing up for any more exchanges although Not Prime Time looks totally up my alley. Woe. Do need to focus on moving though. 


nrgburst: (baby groot press 1)
Ganked from [personal profile] sharpest_asp 

I actually just looked at the numbers a few days ago, so this is good timing! (I'm nearing the end of my latest notebook, where I plot out fic arcs, bingos and GIFsets, so I wanted a summary.) Plus OTW is currently doing another drive for funds- I spend a lot of time on AO3, so I was happy to donate. One thing: I wish AO3 did stats by chapter, like ffnet does! 

Total: 31 works, 203489 words posted since 2013. In general: I write an average of 3439 words per piece/chapter (although they range from 100 to 8500 words), and I tend to complete one thing every three weeks or so. 

Numbers blahblahblah )


nrgburst: (Victory!)
One of the things I love about living here is the constant invention of crazy flavoured snack foods. Like, Eggs Benedict, Avocado Bacon or Strawberry chips? PERFECT FOR HANAMI PARTIES. So I always have to buy them because LOL whut BRING IT ON. XD I think the foulest tasting thing I've encountered are sea urchin flavoured chips- the weird and wonderful offerings are usually surprisingly palatable.

A recent sampler:

nrgburst: (bb8 flailllll)
Well, if you haven't seen The Last Jedi trailer yet, you've probably been living under some kind of social media-proof rock, but I'm posting it here just in case. LOL 


TLJ spec )

 



International trailers and other promos for GotG2 have also dropped, and the indication that Nebula&Gamora's relationship is going to be a key part of the narrative is making me SOOOO HAPPY! It's what I asked for in [community profile] space_swap  but REAL LIFE!!! :DDDD

More icons and GIFs obviously have to be made! I need to fix up the garden while the weather stays decent though- we're going to get pictures taken of the house this weekend so we can get into the process of selling. *gulp*
 
nrgburst: (YESSSSS)
I had to make a YESSSS one for myself, so I figured I'd make a bunch of icons from the trailer. :D Feel free to snag! Comment/credit appreciated. :D

These are all sized for DW, so they'll be too big for LJ. Let me know if you want one sized down and I can delete frames/colors for you~

It's honestly so beautiful here right now. (Took this at the park today.) The blossoms here are mostly falling now (some still in full bloom) and there's just something magical and sad about finding stray petals caught in your purse and hair. Going to miss this!

Also, there have been some incredible trailers dropped that I HAVE to squee over because OMG HOW FUN DOES THIS MOVIE LOOK???

HOW EXCITED AM I TO WATCH THIS?!

I actually opened Youtube by chance 12 minutes after it dropped (already 50000 views) and now it's at 19 million. I'm at least 10 of those, I think. LOL That moment when he's all "YES!!" is full of such unadulterated joy, I can't.

Also Sense8! 

SUN GETS OUT OF PRISON AT LAAAAAST. :DDDDDD

Plus we are getting The Last Jedi trailer on Friday. ( And I thiiink I finally have a working idea for my [community profile] space_swap  assignment, plus a double (maaaybe triple) line bingo for [community profile] trope_bingo . Fingers crossed for all the productivity now that school is back in (although one kiddo is still only half days until next week). I can feel the ideas simmering, I just have to get all the words out in time!
