nrgburst: (watney do the math)
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.)

We really do live in a world where Twitter sways decisions! Looks like all the petitions and non-stop twitter activity has brought Netflix around:

Death doesn't let you say goodbye. 2 hour finale episode in the works. Tell your cluster.

*SCREECHES*

Okay, now I'm not too depressed to keep working on the icons. My husband is back after a month away too, so maybe I can take a little break from parenting and moving stuff long enough to sit in front of my laptop to be creative for a few hours!

The moving thing is really kicking my ass. Literally too exhausted day after day to drag myself out of bed again after putting the kids to sleep to write or GIF or read. So I didn't sign up for [community profile] fic_corner , although I think [community profile] fandomgiftbox  still looks doable if I stick to icon making and not fic writing as presents.

Brief TV reactions: Shadowhunters- !!! YES MORE MAIA/JACE AND IZZY/EVERYBODY PLEASE and good riddance to Clary/Simon, The Originals- ZOMG YESSSSSS THEY'RE ALL FREEEEE!!! What an awesome season finale! Bring on the time jump! And iZombie: Make Jason Dohring a series reg for your final season and more scenes where he walks around in his underwear pleeease *shallow as a puddle* and awwww Ravi & Liv had such a touching final scene!

Just wanted to signal boost the upcoming [community profile] fic_corner exchange !  Still in the process of brainstorming before nominations, so join and subscribe if you are into YA lit/fic at all! 

Also: next week's Shadowhunters looks AMAZING! I am so here for more Malec angst (and the emotional revelations)! 


Plus on The Originals Kol is FINALLY on his way to fight his own family but it's looking like him vs. Rebekah (who's always been his favorite sibling) and Marcel! :((( He's been on this path for ages, but he wasn't allowed to make that choice last year- Davina was dead; he had only his family left. Ahhh, I love terrible choices! XD Gimmegimmegimme (but leave Davina alive, please!)

To celebrate Women's History Month, here's a meme! I have selected 15 female characters from 15 fandoms. Try to guess who they are from the clues! Fandoms listed in tags, characters chosen are mostly my faves. :)

Guess the character! )

Brief thoughts on Shadowhunters 2x08 )


JTV 3x12 )

Agents of WHAT?! )


I was supposed to read American Gods and I've made it all the way through the intro, carried the book on the train a number of times and yet still haven't managed to read the rest of it. So because I just can't seem to get into it, I put it down and devoured another book instead: Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed. It's funny how her stories about shitty things she lived through makes such good perspective for others, (including myself). Lovelovelove. 


Grey's: way to take one of my favorite tropes (Reunions) and make it painful, grounded in stark reality and yet still somewhat hopeful. This is why I still love you.

I can't bear to watch HTGAWM live, so I'm going to wait so I can pause it when it gets too full on. I don't know if I can bear to see Wes die. :( 

nrgburst: (bb8 flailllll)
I've had relatives in town so I haven't been able to read and rec until today BUT SO MUCH DELICIOUSNESS :DDD


I'm blown away by my gift. It's an AMAZING Bucky/Nat that is canon compliant to CW, and the terse emotion and detail/implications woven into each line are just incredible. Natasha is perfectly characterized, both cautious and confident. She pushes because she needs to know, but she's also careful because she understands if he doesn't (or can't or won't) remember and it's all shown so beautifully. Negotiating boundaries with emotional undercurrent and all the angsty push/pull= my crack. The final image of Bucky like Snow White in his crystal coffin (asleep to keep the poison apple from doing its worst) is just !!!! *cries* Plus code-switching! And they "subtitled" the fic with hover too, which is exactly the way I prefer to read code-switching. Even the title is nicely ambiguous, and the fic is both Remember this? and Remember This. It made me so emotional that it hit all my buttons bang on. :'DDDD READ IT GUYS READ IT

Remember This- G, MCU, Bucky/Natasha, 1593 words


I'm only about a third of the way through the collection  but here are some recs organized by fandom:

Star Wars

Two Guardians and a Baby- G, kidfic, Chirrut/Baze, 567 words
I don't usually like kid-fic, but this one is charming without being saccharine. Both Chirrut and Baze are captured just right.

Drive Me Crazy- M, Jyn/Cassian, 5+1 things, 1821 words
Can a fic be smutty, charming and make you LOL by taking things literally? This one did for me. XD

Fierce- G, Chirrut/Baze, 396 words
I literally LOLed at the ending. Chirrut, you charmer.

microcosm- G, Galen Erso/Bodhi Rook, 3135 words
This is such a gorgeous piece. Melancholy and introspective, and a sense of impending doom echoes throughout the flashes of warmth and connection that lead them to where we find them in canon. Just wow. 2nd person Galen POV. ([personal profile] tielan was this you?)

found, G, Finn&Poe Dameron, 711 words
A nice little in-the-after piece.

Intake Day, G, Baze&Chirrut, 494 words
A bright little picture of the past.

What's Cooking? G, Han/Leia, 445 words
Squid Pie and frazzled Leia. Short and sweet.


Sense8

Palette, G, Wolfgang-centric, 1021 words
A little slice of life on how it feels to have the others in your head. Felix boggling at the changes is amusing, and Wolfgang's calm acceptance is also great.


Shadowhunters

No Sweeter Victory, T, Alec Lightwood/Magnus Bane, 5+1 things, 1416 words
Post 2x06, Competitive Malec dates and delightfully suggestive hints of fun to come.




nrgburst: (kol drinking)
Today was a writing day again at long last! :DDD Have a good start on a Leia-centric fic for [community profile] trope_bingo .

So many fandom things to write about too:

I got spoiled on FB so I put off watching this ep of JtV until today. And seriously

Jane the Virgin 3x10 spoilers )


Speaking of characters that are supposed to be gone, HAVE YOU GUYS SEEN THE PROMO FOR THE ORIGINALS?!


She's dressed in white, like an angel. *cries* Not forgiving them for offing my faves (TWO IN THE SAME EP FFS) but I will take back my rage!quit threats if she gets to guest star a decent amount. (And maybe gets resurrected? Maybe? Please?)


Also I thought Malec had already done it, but I guess I was wrong about the implications of Alec saying, "Not much sleeping involved" last season. (Whoops.)

Anyway the next ep looks like great fun! :DDDD I'm totally Izzy. LOL





I binge watched Westworld over the last week too.  I really enjoyed it! If I'd known Jonathan Nolan was involved I might have watched it sooner. Naturally my fave got killed off, because my stanning instincts remain A+++. XDD The producers have hinted she might not actually be dead though, so hope remains. I should GIF her for [community profile] halfamoon but I'm still playing catch up on both real life and fandom things, so we'll see if I get some motivation tomorrow to cap. The review hunt being hosted sounds like fun too! 


I'm kind of meh over HTGAWM still. I don't know, it feels forced ("Spoon me"? Really?) and OTT and my favorite bits are actually the flashbacks and Michaela. This Wes thing is still breaking my heart and I feel like, zero forgiveness, nothing left to give you, show.


AoS remains awesome in its LMD arc. Don't like the foreshadowing that May's real body is going to give up though, although I'm getting a sneaking suspicion that is exactly why LMD!May's body is still hanging around. :/// 

ETA: I've figured out the DW html fail: any time I edit, it screws up tags for some reason. RME Note to self: leave typos as-is for less frustration.
