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.

OH MY FUCKING GOD.

This is not a story about Glee, guys, I'm not even in Glee, I barely know what these characters look like. This is a story about FANDOM. Fandom and fans and all the fucking awesome and all the fucking shit. It's about superheroes and people who are heroes and people who are fucking villains and victims and abusers and rescuers and fucking everything. Just. UGH. Words cannot express. Fucking read it, and then cry your fucking heart out.

IT'S THREE IN THE FUCKING MORNING. I AM SOBBING LIKE A FUCKING BABY. FANDOM. WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO ME?

THIS IS WHY I'M HERE. THIS IS WHY I'M FUCKING HERE.

LOOPER!!

 OH MY GOD, GUYS. OHMYGOD.

Not at all the silly actioner I was expecting from the trailer and the synopsis. This shit is fucking epic. Even A liked it, and he's like, the queen of Judgey McJudgeyness. Especially for time-travel.

I will never doubt Rian Johnson again. This man is the shit. He's the new Terry Gilliam. Go forth and worship.

I was going to wait and post this with the rest of my tv thoughts, but then I watched 3x13 and I needed to share right away.

I've been reading bits of Jane Austen fic recently, and then I found this wonderful thing.

And then I decided I needed to watch all the adaps I haven't yet seen. Mostly it's all the Emmas, but there was a P&P before Ehle and Firth, and a recent Sense and Sensibility. Also I'm going to give the 1999 Mansfield Park a go because wiki says they changed all the things. (I despise Mansfield Park.)

And now, an awesome women being happy gif party!

OH MY GOD. This is utterly wonderful. The song choice is PERFECT, the use of speaky face is INSPIRED and as a summary of season two it works SO WELL. Seriously, this is the BEST THING EVER. It's all so on the beat and slick and funny yet creepy at the same time and OHMYGOD. I'M DYING. 

Anyone who has ever seen even the tiniest bit of Sherlock has to watch this RIGHT FUCKING NOW.

I started this at a semi-reasonable hour, I swear.

if you liked the book you'll hate the movie by paperclipbitch
XMFC, Hank/Alex, Charles/Erik [high!school!au], [family dynamics]
This, seriously, this. I can't even explain, it's not what you expect. It's fun, but it becomes brilliant around Alex's POV, when the Charles/Erik not!flirting steps up, and the dysfunctional!family aspect kicks in. It's like crack except perfect. And I haven't the words. Just read it, it'll have you in stitches (and keep you up 'till five, apparently).

The Good Wife 3x13. Entirely superficial not! recap:-- Kalinda, you looked REALLY HOT this episode. I think was the colour of her top, plus some stellar make up? Not sure what exactly, but her skin had all these different tones. She's gorgeous. Not that they couldn't cut back further on the black and increase the use of colour. (Navy? Dark brown? THERE ARE OPTIONS, OKAY.)



Once Upon A Time 1x09. Entirely fed-up not!recap:-- Fuck it. Emma you lose at life. Henry you are an ungrateful shit. Regina, I love you. Rumplestiltskin, I love you as well. Snow and Charming, you're all right but you don't get enough screen time. Everyone else, you are MADE OF BORING. (Red, you are still super!hot). Even mystery man-on-motorbike isn't enough to keep me interested. I had hopes, possibly not very high, but they were middling. Show, you ruined them. Now how am I going to get my Carlyle kick? Bring back SGU, you losers.

Sherlock 2x03/entire season 2. Entirely obsessed not!recap:-- I HAVE TO WAIT A WHOLE YEAR? (Or possibly just under a year) FFFFFUUUUUU. John, you were the wonderfullest wonderful ever to wonderful. Sherlock, you were manic this entire season, but it did make sense in context. Moriarty, you were the best villain in the entire world ever. He gave me shivers, actual physical shivers. I have to watch everything with Andrew Scott in now. EVERYTHING. HIS FACE. MY GOD. Molly and Lestrade, you were great, wish they'd had more screen time, but we got some nice round the edges character development, especially ep 1 and 3. Shame there wasn't more Sally and shame Anthea didn't seem to exist (though we did get more Mycroft, which I certainly approve of.) It was deffo darker this season, which makes me wonder where they're going to go in 3. Even more darker-er?

I wasn't lying when I made those last straw posts. I've finally had enough. That's not to say I'm dropping my white men fandoms. I'm not. I love them, I'm not going to deny that. But I've reached the point where I just can't stand to continue as I have been, complaining and still doing nothing.

So here is my first step on the path to hypocrisy-free media consumption and critique. For every white men centric source I consume (tv/film/vid I watch, book/fanfic I read etc) I'm going to consume two things about women or POC, a corresponding source if I can, but if not, fic for film or book for vid or any permutation is fine, as long as it's two for every one.

It's not exactly arduous! More media to enjoy!

The same rule however, is going for fanworks. I've got my Wolf!Stiles fic to post soon, and after that I'll create two female/POC centric fics/fan works. (Oh, and a twofer only counts as one.) They don't have to be equivalent size, it's more about opening my mind to the possibilities, it's not like I don't have fics about women and POC rattling around in my skull, but instead of rattling and back burnering, I'm pushing them to the front.

Plus I can work on original fic as well, (in fact that should probably take priority, um). So my work won't always appear up here, but when it's fandom related it definitely will.

They open with a quick selective rehash of the swimming pool scene:

It's weird seeing the actual actors all together again. Sherlock's face seems different after so long imagining him in my head whilst reading fanfic. My opinion of Jim has changed since seeing him the first time, (I've grown to hate him more, I was mostly bowled over by awesome and weirdness at first). John... John is much the same actually, huh.

They manage to amp back all the tension with the slow lead in, but then comes the drop of Sherlock's eyes to the bomb jacket and I just can't see how they're going to deliver the pay-off. Anything will be anti-climatic after so long a wait.

...

That was, 'dot dot dot,' for all you listening at home. )
