Teen Wolf's now in closed-canon land; the best land of all.

Episode 620 aired last night & is a good send-off. Nobody I didn't want to die dies & some people I wanted to die do die. Yay! Of course, some people I wanted to die don't die, but you can't have everything.

And we get actual Derek/Stiles interaction! They're even allowed to touch each other for the grand finale! Clutchingly! In a flashback to catch us up & ace it is. Also provides fodder for many stories to fill in the details of that sketchy time.

Spoilers & video embed behind the cut.

I'm super excited about what I got this year, because Wonder Woman icons! Two sets!

And then I got a wonderful ficlet from an AU where Boromir didn't die and how Aragorn's coronation then went. (movie verse, and very sweet).

AND THEN I got Murderbot fic! About Murderbot's favourite show getting cancelled, and Murderbot doing what any fan would do. It's a sweet and funny little follow up to All Systems Red and I'm so pleased with it.

I wrote three fic:

Sunday Tea on Mars
Babylon 5, post series, Catherine/Jeff/Michael/Lise, 1,800 words, Teen.
Lise knows she's been with Michael too long when a presumed-dead Minbari prophet at the breakfast table is the least of her worries.

My Dreams Under Your Feet
Star Wars: The Force Awakens, post movie, Leia/Poe, 2,100 words, Explicit.
Poe isn't sure he has it in him to give Leia everything she needs after the Battle of Starkiller Base, but he knows he's going to try.

In Your Arms Tonight
Star Wars: The Force Awakens, post movie, Finn/Poe, 1,100 words, Teen.
When Finn gets back, he's taking that wilderness survival training Poe keeps telling him about.

Anyone know if this is running this year, and if it'll be on LJ? And if it is on LJ if people who deleted their LJs can participate?

ETA: [community profile] hlh_shortcuts. And it will be run entirely on DW. Last year sign ups started end of September. I really rec this fest as it's extremely welcoming and the mod is great.

Media

I watched a pretty good docu about climate change that didn't tell me anything new, but did do a great job of providing a veritable smorgasbord of apocalyptic story ideas! Once we reach the 2 degrees celsius rise in global temperature (having already reached 1 degree), you got your fire-ravaged world, your flooded world, your earthquake-devastated world, your pandemic world, your starvation world....

19-2: The final episode of this show airs tonight. S4 has been tying up a bunch of loose ends as we approach the end. I'll miss the Ben & Nick partnership; also the new gay sarge & Bear & Tyler. I cheered when Bear finally got her promotion to sergeant! My 2 major hopes for the final episode are... Read more... )

Outlander: I'm only watching this show because I heard the gay guy might turn up some time during this 3rd series. Is he called John Gray or something like that? I haven't read the books so I have only the vaguest of notions.

The best things about this show remain the opening credits; the Scots accents & music; & the production values. My major reaction to 301-02 is: OMG, Frank, stop wasting your life being devoted to a woman who doesn't give a flying fuck about you! Wake up! Move on!

Teen Wolf: my watch for Derek & Stiles in the show's final few episodes continues. Spoilers 618 & 619 )

Upstart Crow: the other show about Shakespeare is back for its 2nd series! This one's the comedy rather than the (slightly) more serious Will that debuted this year. Only 1 episode into the new series so far, but I laughed several times, so it's promising.

Still can't work out the bandwidth leak. I thought it was just my computer, but Nenya's is doing it when I use it. Could it somehow be firefox? *HANDS*


Meme from Selena K:
1) Make a list of fifteen characters first, and keep it to yourself for the moment.

2) Ask your f-list to post questions in the comments. For example: "One, nine, and fifteen are chosen by a prophecy to save the world from four. Do they succeed?", "Under what circumstances might five and fourteen fall in love?", "Which character on the list would you most want on your side in a zombie invasion?"

3) After your f-list has stopped asking questions, round them up and answer them using the fifteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.



I can't believe it's my first year back to yuletide since 2013, and I got sucked into wank. Twice. Anyway. Whatever.

Fegredo's BPRD covers

[personal profile] goo
Duncan Fegredo's covers for BPRD: Cometh The Hour were so fucking wonderful that I've been looking forward to seeing his covers for The Devil You Know just about as much as I was to reading the actual story.
And I was particularly looking forward to who would be on the fifth Devil You Know cover, because it really wasn't obvious by eliminating who had been on the first four. It turned out to be everyone! I'm so bloody delighted.

Something in our system is haemorrhaging bandwidth, and since we have a fixed amount a day which cuts us off for a day if we run over it, we may not be online much until we figure out what the fuck is going on.

I'm gong to pull the plug before my last 76MB vanish for no reason.
