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! 
nrgburst: (Queen Cat)
So I watched the series finale of Reign without watching the final season and lollerskates I forgot about the random witchcraft SLs they bring in sometimes XDDDD What was even happening there- was it like An Indecent Proposal but with morning after regret stabbing? Also, was Catcisse a thing again? How come he didn't die in agony like Nostradamus predicted in S2?! Poop. And ahhhhhh I was not expecting that version of heaven for Mary, BUT I APPROVE. MY SHIPPER HEART. Made me want to rewatch S1, and I might just do while packing/cleaning/selling. As a series finale, it felt rushed and ??? Like, we got the fate of our Three Queens spelled out, but Mary's ladies, Catherine's children and Narcisse didn't get a conclusive ending, which was a bit sad. 


Also, I am excited about the apparent end of Always~ and Forever~ next week on The Originals! :D Which totally won't stick because they got another season, but still. :DDDDD I loved seeing Jackson again the previous ep too! And Hayley breaking things off with Elijah because who he really is freaked her TF out is AWESOME. I know all the shippers are crying foul, but I love that she gets to see their relationship and the effect it's had on her and Hope with utter clarity? She's bled and suffered to protect an unrepentant monster; put her child in harm's way. If she didn't want to examine those decisions after he attacked her, that would be totally fucked up. And yes, she's a killer too. This doesn't mean she doesn't get to say no, she doesn't want to be with him. (Yes, I know this applies to Davina and Kol too, and I think it would have been awesome to see Davina have the same FUCK NO reaction to him after he killed her. Because that's a natural knee jerk reaction to have? Although in her case, she was aware the Ancestors had cursed him to kill her, so her perspective going in was different too- Hayley expected the gallant lover version of him or the sophisticated family man at his true core.)


Speaking of shrieking knee jerk reactions, this week's iZombie looks hilarious! Can't wait!

Sorry, this moving thing is really taking over my life. It's actually good that most shows are on hiatus now! So instead of thinking about narratives and characters all day, I'm cleaning and selling stuff. And getting really grumpy with people sometimes? e.g. when I say I'll be in the city in the morning so it'll be possible to meet, I am not saying I will deliver the item to you at night. That isn't how words work. Also: why is it a thing to ask for a discount right after I agree to a favor like holding an item? Give 'em an inch, they walk all over you, I guess, but aaarrgghhh. 

I am debating leaving my Moogle doll behind. I don't need it, especially when I think of how much it'll cost to ship perfectly mundane things like books and winter clothes home, but it seems such a waste to throw it away. Any FF fans out there want it free for shipping? It was purchased at the Square Enix shop in Tokyo. Pet and smoke free home.

Oh! THE ORIGINALS. Guys, my OTP got a Happily Ever After scene. Like, driving off into the "sunset". I am still just !!! and THIS NEVER HAPPENS TO ME, and I WANT ALL THE WORLD TRAVELLING FICS and OMG SHE DIDN'T DIE AGAIN (AND NEITHER DID HE). *cries* 


nrgburst: (handling hiccup's pencil)
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!)

 JUST NEED TO CAPSLOCK FLAIL ABOUT THE ORIGINALS BECAUSE YESSSSSSSS

I'm baaaack! Went to Tokyo for a trip last week so we could have one last Disneyland/DisneySea visit (plus stop by to see the grandparents and cousins) and it was so much fun! The girls were more jaded this time though- they realized we didn't actually go to space on Star Tours, although they still think C-3PO is a terrible pilot. XDDD It was our first time to see the parades/shows/fireworks at night because they finally had the stamina to stay up! We'll definitely be back to DisneySea again because we were all exhausted and couldn't enjoy the park as much because of aching feet/grumpiness. Plus husband and I loved the atmosphere of each theme area- they paid a lot of attention to detail, and it was pretty nifty. My favorite was the Steampunk vibe of "Mysterious Island" and the detailed mosaics in the "Mermaid's Lagoon".

One thing: when we were on 20000 Leagues Under the Sea they stopped the ride due to some kind of emergency and we were stuck in the "submarine" for almost an hour until the staff came to get us! We had to climb out via a ladder and then walk on the rafters/rigging to a back entrance, with the ride displays below us, so the kids had all the magic/4th wall illusions taken out of that ride. Oh well. It was kind of cool to see anyway, although I wish they had compensated us a little better for the lost time: we got "priority ride" passes that were good for only unpopular rides, so we didn't use them. :(

Caught up on most of my shows now too! Grey's just got kind of a bzuh? reaction out of me mostly because spoilers for Grey's, iZombie and TO )

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.

OOhhh they are going full voodoo horror this season! It's so creepy! I like the juxtaposition of milky white innocent Hope wandering into the middle of it all in her nightgown, hahaha. 

Also there's a deliberate reference to the bracelet this ep! So the magic of The Hollow is getting to Hope despite the shackles, but it was preventing her from using her own magic, which was a problem?

Also they are totally going the Keelin x Freya route! :D

I really need to make more TO icons. They keep dropping Davina's name though, so hope remains! #bringDavinaback
nrgburst: (Fitz ZOMG)
So the last scene in the ep had me like Fitz in the icon.

AoS 3x16 What if... )




Grey's, The Originals and iZombie )
nrgburst: (party like it's 1864)
Most of my shows are on hiatus still BUT CHECK OUT ALL THE PROMOS FOR UPCOMING AWESOMENESS:

Spoilers for The Originals, iZombie and AoS )Short reactions to media consumed this past week-ish:

 Passengers (Rape Culture Redemption Story In Space. I am seriously contemplating writing a fix-it because WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK WAS THAT ENDING) 
The Originals 4x01 (Meh. My faves weren't in it. I got totally emo over Hope wearing Davina's bracelet though) 
Grey's (Yay Japril is back together-ish!)
 
nrgburst: (kol drinking)
Well, obviously my faves are either dead or asleep but if I know myself at all, I'm pretty sure The Originals is going to capture my fannish heart again once it comes back on tomorrow. So I'm going to try to focus on getting Halo out today because otherwise who knows when I'll update. (If ever.) Sorry Grey's- going to watch you later too, although this Japril publicity does have me intrigued. 

Anyway, here are Marcel-centric and Vincent-centric sneak peeks for TO!




One thing that has me ??? is Josh supporting Vincent instead of Marcel in the second!? What is going on with the power dynamics in NO? Also I can't wait to meet Hope, the character, not the object that must be projected onto/protected. :D

Still 5 clues left unsolved in the puzzle meme! Anybody? There are more clues in the comments for #3 in the LJ entry, if you're stumped. 

Also, went to a local fertility festival on Wednesday. Phallic shaped snacks, free sake and carved penises (and foreigners) everywhere! Gotta love living here sometimes! :DDD 
nrgburst: (Despicable me yay!)

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! )

So much amazing stuff to look forward to! Starwars.com posted a pic of an empty box yesterday and muffled screaming echoed across the world because LOOK AT OUR TRIO IN THE LAST JEDI, GUYS:

The Last Jedi spoiler spec and pic )
GotG 2/May 5th also can't come soon enough! I made these icons mostly from the trailers. Feel free to use them! They're sized for DW- most of them are too big for LJ. Credit/Comment, no hotlinking please.


GotG icons- mostly Baby Groot )

Also The Originals is back in less than a month! Check out the promo poster!

And as of 9 hours ago on twitter, Kylie Bunbury still doesn't know if Pitch will be renewed. *sigh*

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.
