nrgburst: (jyn may the force be with us)
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! 

COME PLAY @ THE [ FIC POSITIVITY FEEDBACK MEME ]
my thread here





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! 
nrgburst: (this guy are sick)
I don't want to throw away my modded PS or PS2. Yes, the original versions. I still have games and controllers and memory cards. If they work, screw it, I'll pay to ship them back. Nostalgia is an (expensive) bitch. At least I'm able to turn my CDs into data, although this ripping process is tedious AF.


BUT I am wondering if anybody wants my FFVII Ultimania or Crisis Core Ultimania? I can ship book rate, so they'll be cheap to send. PM me if you are interested- I can probably unload them at Book Off but just in case anybody I know wants them. (They're in Japanese.)




Also, somebody finally reviewed the second chapter of Discretion and yay, a rave! I know Reeve/Rufus is a rarepair and I know the fandom is pretty much in hibernation, but still. YAY. VALIDATION I HAS IT. :DDDD

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!

nrgburst: (alison effed it)
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!)

Sense8 has been cancelled by Netflix on the first day of Pride Month. :(((( Also, to nobody's surprise, Drumpf pulled the US out of the Paris Climate Accord, because America first 

I'm going to go write. Need to not be in this world for a bit.

ETA: I just donated to All Out. Just my usual monthly lunch money, but a little more proactive than making futile fist shaking posts.

Went to the concert last night and it was amazing! The set was pretty short (less than 90 minutes) but such incredible performances- I'm so, so glad I got to go! My fave was Mitch in No (So good!) but it was nice to see all the love Avi was getting every time he spoke or got a solo bit. I'm bummed he's leaving the group, of course, but I'm glad they all seem to be moving forward on other projects and are just so supportive of his decision. Plus they kept loving on Japan, it was really cute. "This is our favorite country to tour! The food is so good here! Umai! Oishi!" XDDD I do wish they'd performed more songs from Classics (No Bohemian Rhapsody. :((( ) BUT Can't help falling in love was so beautifully done that it made up for it. SUCH FOOD FOR THE SOUL :'D

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.

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: (baby groot press 1)
I got to see it opening weekend here (yay!) and I’m a little disappointed there was no promotional postcard given out like I got for Pacific Rim and The Force Awakens. Come on! We got it a whole week later than the rest of the world- no goodies? :(

It was awesome anyway- I laughed, I cringed, I cried. I didn’t expect the latter- GotG doesn’t take itself that seriously so I didn’t expect to be moved to tears not once but twice. The emotional scenes were really well done too- I loved the character/relationship arcs and the continuing theme of found family. Plus the execution was great, with fun camera angles and pretty graphics and the way the music meshed. Baby Groot was especially adorable! Spoilers! )All in all, a great sequel that both built on and added depth to the story and characters from the first GotG. Anybody see it in 3D? I’m debating going into town next week to see it in 3D if it’s worth the additional cost. (Local theater doesn’t have a subbed version in 3D.)
nrgburst: (katherine cessation of hostility)
 Well one of my predictions was accurate: 

SPOILERS )

Is anybody else watching GA on the reading list? Thoughts on the finale?
nrgburst: (YESSSSS)
I WAS SO FREAKING WORRIED! ABC made so many pilots (but didn't like very many of them, it seems) and the cancellation news stopped after a single show yesterday. TROLLS.

Receipts here at TVline and via twitter, with an explanation about the numbers at the former. Looks like DVR playback is also what helped save iZombie and The Originals!


SEASON 5 HELL YEAH! *dancing in my seat*
