Ordered the final book and it arrived today. In an unprecedented effort of self control, I managed a single sketchbook painting before giving in and reading for the next 4 hours. 

IT WAS SO GOOD. GUYS. THIS SERIES. IT'S THE BEST. IT WILL DESTROY YOU.

I should probably try and do some actual work now.

Two days and 14 hours of gameplay later...

I've finally stepped away from the computer. Yes I know, applause. I managed to accidentally give some dodgy guy my signature. Smooth move Shepherd. That's only going to come back to haunt me.

I can't work out how to level up my squad, and since I have no electronics or decryption skills as Shepherd, there are all these unopened boxes all over the place that I don't have the hacking skills to open. IT'S SO FRUSTRATING.

Also frustrating, the way Kaiden was totally shooting me down previously. But it's cool. We're flirting now. I figured I'd end up going for the gay option but NOPE. I like Kaiden.

Other than that. Still not quite got the handle on combat, but since I'm playing on easy setting, it's not a massive disadvantage, and I'm here for the plot, not the fighting anyway.

I love all the zipping around the galaxy and checking out new worlds. Don't so much love running all over the ship and the lifts (though yes, the lift talk/awkward silences are lols). I wish games routinely gave characters teleportation devices. Or at least let me jump? WHY CAN'T I JUMP. I usually jump places when I have to cover long distances, I don't know if it makes me cover ground any faster, but at least it gives me something to do with my fingers.

Anyway. Yes, much enjoyment... DON'T SPOIL ME.

P.S WHERE IS THE THORIAN MIND CONTROL TENTACLE SEX POLLEN KINK? What the hell internet. You failed me. I'm so disappointed in you.

I've defaulted on a whole bunch of fests. I'm trying to write original fic but nothing is working.

I'm here. but I'm not really here, here. If you get me. I mean, I have some fics that will get posted soonish. But I think signing up for things involving deadlines was not the best idea.

Anyway, I did go to the Expo on Sat, which was AWESOME. I have to bring a camera next time. Some of the costumes were A-MAY-ZING. There was an unfortunate lack of Star Trek people though. I noticed a couple of Next Gen-ers, but no TOS, not even STXI. Despite that I was pretty happy with my Uhura get-up. I got a positive response from a few people. I now need to decide what to go as for the LFCC. COSPLAY. IT IS CONTAGIOUS AND ADDICTIVE.

I didn't really take the time to browse the Dealer room, (it was SO PACKED. My God I did not expect that many people) and like I said, I should have brought a camera so I could perve on praise other people's epic costumes. (There was a fem-Loki and fem-Thor. The fem-Loki was UTTER WIN.)

Other than my eyes dropping out my head at all the wonderful cosplayers, I mostly I focused on going to the panels.

Sarah Shahi (Kate Reed on Fairly Legal) was tiny and gorgeous pretty hilarious. Shamelessly promoting for Fairly Legal, and fairly successful considering I want to give it another go now.

Tyler Hoechlin and Holland Roden (Derek and Lydia on Teen Wolf) were sweet. I'm now more interested in Lydia's story after all Holland's teasing (she'd been sworn to secrecy but apparently Lydia gets a fair amount of attention around mid-season.) They didn't really tell us that much else, though apparently Dylan is not the prankster on set, he's more the prank-ee, which is lols.

Raphael Sbarge (Jiminy Cricket/Archie on OUaT) was UTTERLY ADORABLE. HE KEPT SAYING GEE WHIZ. Not even in a semi-ironic way. He just said it. IT WAS A THING HE SAID. I mean, he was basically Archie IRL. It was the cutest.

The last panel we saw was the guy who plays Nick in Grimm. [livejournal.com profile] jolinarjackson watches the show and was reccing it to us. (Excepting the German language fail). He seemed personable enough, a little bit too 'cool', but funny despite that.

I haven't seen one-person panels before, I should think that's a tough thing to pull off. The audiences weren't as receptive as they could have been, I think Shahi had the toughest, the other three were in the main stage and seemed to have more watchers of the shows. I think a lot of the people watching Shahi were fans of Life or the L-word, and one guy kept asking her about Alias.

Utterly randomly, on my way home I walked straight past James Purefoy in Paddington station. Just as sexy, if not more, IRL than on tv. I am impress.

K has now massively got into Magic: The Gathering (he stayed for the entire weekend in London, and apparently, when they weren't at the con, they were playing cards. Food? Pff, who needs food?) It is highly addictive and absurdly geeky. I'm not really a fan of the capitalist, materialistic-trap. BUY THESE CARDS. NOW BUY THESE CARDS. ALSO THESE THINGS. ALSO. AND MORE.

But the game itself is plenty fun. even if he keeps killing me. Now I want to see if I can find some Oxford LARPers or table-top-ers (is that a phrase?). Because I'm cool. Did you miss that?



In other news, I finally got round to watching the TVD finale, so there's that.

Thoughts and some S4 spoilers, nothing really major )

Feisty young prosecutor Stefan Salvatore has his world turned upside down when his next case is against the city's best defence lawyer: the charming and powerful Katherine Pierce. It only gets worse when Ms Pierce turns out to be 'Katherine'' the woman who swept him off his feet two years ago before disappearing.

So his dad owns 'Salvatore and Sons' and Damon is still a layabout and Stefan rebelled and is trying it on his own etc. and totally living with Lexi, and he met Katherine somewhere and sparks flew but she had to leave or something and it was all lost chance-y, but he's totally over it. Totally. Shuttup Lexi. And then his boss is like, here is your case, this is the lawyer you're facing. OH BTW it's Pierce, the scariest bestest lawyer who's back in town and then he realises she's the sexy lawyer he almost had sex with two years ago and he wants to die.

And then he's all I hate her I hate her she's so hot OMFG. I'm so not impressed, except that I am and GDI she's a fantastic lawyer as well and FML. And then there are the courtroom dramas and the sexy flirting banter dramas and the powerplay dramas and then sex forever.

I'm thinking Suits, The Good Wife, various romance novels, and all post-war Draco/Hermione fic ever written. (Srsly, so much of that falls into the usual-gender version of this cliche, except politicians not lawyers.)


I haven't started writing this or anything... 


I would also like to see:

- Genderswap Reformed Rake:
'Female rake was just waiting for the right virginal male to come along.' (Icky whichever way you play it and I can't see this working in a 'real world' Regency scenario.)

- Genderswap Paranormal Romance: male hunter is seduced by 'Alpha female' werewolf or vampire. Plot also happens. Could possibly work as a Revenge AU


Any suggestions for fandoms and for any other cliches you'd like to see genderswapped?
