Arduous journey home to Canada complete, with unpacking done and jet-lag mostly over! We won't get the rest of our boxes for another month at least, but that just gives me more time to get the superfun customs paperwork done!  (Yay?) Still car-less, phone-less and healthcare-less, BUT hopefully once I get my credit card in hand all that will change. I might even buy a used car for cash sooner than that- really used to having a rental available at least!

Also some really exciting developments on the citizenship front for my kids, which is awesome. It's been 8 years, and I'd given up on them getting a grant. Like, I was resigned to them coming in on "tourist" visas and just getting them renewed and living in the shitty gray zone until we leave. But with new legislation heading into the House in September, wheels are turning at IRCC again because our amazing Lost Canadian activist just won't give up. Might even go to Ottawa to help protest.

Fandom-wise: ahhhhh GOT is so good this season! OLENNA TYRELL GUYS. WHAT A QUEEN. WHAT AN EPIC DEATH SCENE. Plus I sort of can't believe Jon/Dany is actually happening after crackshipping it from character parallels for years. :DDDD CAN'T SOMEONE LEAK THE EPS I HATE WAITING

And no, haven't been able to watch Shadowhunters 2x18 yet although I watched the Malec scenes on Youtube just to torture myself. :'(


As always, late to the party but here is my fic positivity thread! Would love any sort of feedback!

Okay we have 8 days left in Japan and I'm still trying to scan pictures so I can bring memories digitally instead of big stacks of albums and sell stuff. We aren't even started packing our suitcases. And we have so many bucket list people to see one last time and things to do and eat one last time. And now my kids are done school and expect entertainment. This is like The Perfect Storm. I'm sorely tempted to just get on the plane and LEAVE. ALL. THE. CRAP. BEHIND. So what if we lose a couple years of photos, right? siiigghhh 

In fandom news:
Game of Thrones is back and I'm suddenly shipping Missandei/Grey Worm like whoa. Those little glimpses in the trailers have got me so excited! They've had just the sweetest ~longing looks~ relationship where they've both vocalized how much they desire the other and yet have dutifully refused to act on their feelings. JUST DO IT ALREADY DON'T YOU KNOW WHAT SHOW YOU ARE ON. Like, other characters keep going on and on about how he has no equipment, and I'm like... that's not technically true? The way he shut down Daario on that with just a withering look last season was just A+++ XDDD Seriously they can have all the joys of a loving relationship with none of the childbirth/rearing stress! I'm feeling this is a fantastic life choice decision especially now. XD I love how much he *hearteyes* over her, how she's always the one making all the moves because he won't
Awesome premiere ep though. It was very much like setting up pieces on a chess board- you can probably see how it's all going down...but you're likely to be completely crushed by your expectations when things go absolutely sideways instead! "The Great Game is terrifying" and absolutely riveting teeveeeeee! :DDD

Here is my fandom giftbox if any of you are interested! I don't know if anybody else has one, but reply with a link yours if you do! I love stuffing, but I will obviously be doing it post-move!

Shadowhunters continues to delight more and more! I think it's Sebastian|Jonathan, but I'm waaay more interested in 2B than 2A or S1? I just wish there was more Izzy and less Clary, but fine, fine plot. (Why do I always glom onto non-main characters to stan in TV shows? There's got to be a psychological reason for this.)

So I was just mulling over how weird it is not to have a proper fall/winter/spring TV season anymore. Everything is so spread out! HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO GET AWAY FOR THE SUMMER WITHOUT MISSING GOOD STUFF NOW. JULY IS GOING TO BE FULL OF AWESOME.


GoT spec based on the trailer )

Also, Spiderman: Homecoming

Is it wrong that I am more excited about watching this movie after seeing Tom Holland's epic lip sync battle performance? LOL 

Apologies to those waiting for Sense8 icons! I haven't forgotten- I'm partly done capping, but I get distracted watching the eps and then forget and then have to try to rewind and then my VLC crashes and ugh. TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES PLEASE TRY AGAIN WHEN YOUR LAPTOP FEELS LIKE COOPERATING

Oh! On a personal note, booked tickets home! Two more months left before we move, yikes.
