Going to make this short, since I haven't written anything on the comics in ages, and there's a lot from the previous issues that I would need to address if I was going to claim any semblance of a thorough review.

So, straight to the big news.Collapse )

So, ever since I discovered "social capital" on LJ, I've been secretly obsessed with my statistical popularity on this barren desert of a blogging platform. Seriously, even when I hadn't updated for months and I knew it, I was still sneaking peeks at my profile and frowning at my "10 or less". When I got up to eleven or twelve I was like, JUGGERNAUT, BITCH!

And all of a sudden in the past few days:

It's probably some kind of skewed reading and will vanish expediently, but for now?

Hello! I was just looking at my LJ profile, thinking about updating it, and I decided that instead of getting rid of the drabble grid I have up there, I should give myself another shot at completing it. So I rolled a random number and wrote something for the #31 prompt. Hope you like!

Cut for no reason other than to separate it from the text above.Collapse )

If I try to write anything earnest about Bones it's just going to be a carbon copy of my last couple rants, so suffice it to say I watched another season and hated it as much as I usually do, but with one qualifier!

The new intern was fun. I don't remember her name (I mean, of course I don't), and it doesn't bode well that she slept with Sweets, but otherwise I think I genuinely liked her!

Anyone else have that reaction? Or the polar opposite? I'd be interested in hearing either.

It looks like my next marathon is going to be either Agents of SHIELD S2 or True Blood S5, either of which I'll have to pay for, so I told myself I had to earn it by blogging about what I watch. (Seriously, all I want is to have conversations on LJ, and all it takes to get one going is a few dozen words on a moderately popular topic, and I still procrastinate! This year means change, dammit.)

The last thing I watched before AoS 1 was a scary and engrossing show that the rest of you watched while it was on the air and you already know all about what happens next, but I don't, which is why I'm buckling down to pay for new episodes of AoS, but I digress. (Oh wait, one more - did you hear General Adama was cast in AoS? That is so cool.)

Spoilers for the show AND THE COMICS; if there's any reason you want one and not the other, let me know and I'll rework it so you don't have to click.Collapse )

To be honest I wouldn't have been surprised if this came up completely empty since I've been away from LJ or lockblogging so much lately, so even having a little handful to share right now is cool cool with me. Everything is cool cool for 2015, the year that we are all going to get rich and famous, find love, and change the world with our mighty deeds.

I had really high hopes for this movie - so much so that I actually ordered the DVD before I'd even seen it - so last night when I started watching, way too late for a weeknight, I felt a little meh throughout the first half or so.

Today I'm in a good mood and I can't pin it on anything other than Guardians of the Galaxy, so I retroactively love it.

Anyone know where I can get some Rocket icons? Or any icons really, but live action anthropomorphic character + procyonidae + BFGs + stupid wisecracks + unwilling biological experiment, Rocket was never headed anywhere but straight to my heart.

Please oh please let there be a way for any of these characters to crossover to the MU movies set on Terra!

This year I've gained a few new LJ friends who are still basically strangers, and even though I made sure to leave adequate warning in the friending memes and what-all that I'm not currently active online, I've seen some "introduction to blog" posts from said new friends and was thinking that maybe doing that makes more sense than telling the internet "I'm back!" and then immediately contradicting that with a couple more weeks of silence and then it's back-to-back Hunger Games posts and nobody even knows if that's the norm or if I'm acting really odd lately...

Kudos if you followed that; I'm not sure I did.

Anyway, the problem is that I consider this a fandom blog, so I wasn't sure how to introduce myself when personal information and history aren't going to be relevant to anything you'll read in an unlocked post. How about an experiment: this is an introduction to my fandom identity, commonly known as Kairos.

Let's go.Collapse )

EDIT 12/19: Kairos has no special dietary restrictions, but she doesn't like olives. Kairos should be exercised daily to compensate for her sugar addiction. Please supervise your Kairos at all times. If you encounter a Kairos in the wild, back away slowly and do not make eye contact. Kairos is for external use only. To remove Kairos, apply a small amount of baking soda and rub hard with a damp cloth. Kairos is valid only if presented at point of sale. The theatrical release of Kairos is indefinitely postponed due to threats of terrorism. Kairos is fine, but thank you for asking.

Meet you at midnight...Collapse )

And speaking of influence, here's the first thing I thought of when I heard the name Effie Trinket: seriously, you're going to love this. I can't say for sure it inspired the character, but it's so close to the series' themes it seems like it can't be coincidental.

I'll just leave you with that so you can lie awake all night feeling haunted by it. Six crumbs, Capitol clowns.

I meant to post on this way back when I read it for the first time because I like how popular it is around here, but, you know how it is. All the posts you mean to make. I didn't intend to reread it at any point (does anyone want my copy? I got it for free), but suddenly the movie was out and I felt like I needed to revisit, and anyway I was working on Black Friday with nothing to do and nobody looking over my shoulder, and it's not like these books need more than a day apiece. We're most likely seeing the movie tonight.

Because I've got a half hour and because I was recently asked about it and because I'm in a miserable mood today, let's talk about Saga, the best comic ever written, and how it could be better.

Spoilers up to latest issue.Collapse )

Well, I had a lot more to say but my half hour is up, so whoever wants to can rant along here or tell me why I'm wrong (maybe I am wrong!). If you're not already reading Saga, you still need to, no excuses. If you are, I'm hoping to do another big set of icons or some other graphics, but there are too many fandoms to be fanned....and my mood hasn't really improved yet. We'll pick up this topic later, just like I said about all the other topics.

Just gained a few friends from a site-wide meme, and you can too:

( multi-fandom friending meme )

Eventually LJ will probably turn into a wasteland populated by twenty or so of us inflexible stalwarts, all of whom are friends except for grrm, so we might as well start getting to know each other now and see who makes it to the Ablogalypse.

Tl;dr, this is me bidding a warm albeit absent-minded welcome to anyone who's decided to tolerate my presence on their flist. Man that makes me feel like I should show more appreciation for those of you who have been doing that for years. I swear, I've tried to be entertaining! I'm trying right now!

Second order of business, I've been nominated at the Sunnydale Memorial Fanfiction awards (click the button to see the other nominees) for "Chorus", possibly the only fic I've written this year. Thanks, whoever!

Does anyone watch True Blood? I figured I would try Season 2 after all this time just because it's there, but now I'm kinda drawn in.

Trouble is I know for me it's all about [Spoiler (click to open)]kink, and pretty soon they're going to smash this Bill/Sookie thing that's hitting me in all the right spots. After that I suppose there will still be werewolves, and then one thing or another will keep me clinging on even though I'll be bitching all along about how much this show has gone downhill. So maybe it's a good thing Amazon only has it through S3.

By now you've probably heard that the annual I Will Remember You Fic Marathon is changing hands; angelus2hot will be the primary organizer this year, while scribesds takes a much-deserved break from it. (Personally, I hope she's spending the time relaxing in a hot tub or rockin' out at clubs, but I know she probably just needs to concentrate on her real life.)

I would have instantly volunteered for the task myself, if not for a major personal event that I have overlapping it, so while there's nothing for me to really add here, I did want to keep the conversation going a bit longer out in the open. We've heard from a lot of fans lately, affirming the importance of the IWRY Marathon to them, and it's never too early or too late to show your support by pitching in to help. How? Write. If you don't have a story idea? Write anyway. If you've never written B/A before? Make this your first time. If you're not confident in your ability? Take the plunge, ask for a beta, and write.

How else can you help? Well, for that you'll have to ask angelus2hot. I'll try to be around for the next few months to help plug, beta, and answer questions, but my main goal is to produce one B/A story of real quality, so I suppose if you want to help me, ask me how it's going. ;)

Here's to another great year of B/A fanfiction.

I come from the town of Mira
Beyond the bridges of Saint Claire.
I guess you've never heard of Mira?
It's very small but still it's there.
They have the very greenest trees
And skies as white as flame,
But what I liked the best in Mira
Is everybody knew my name.
Can you imagine that?
Can you imagine that?
Everybody knew my name.
