It's my first post of 2014! *fanfare*

I wouldn't get too excited, though; despite battling with an epic Real Life update since the middle of December, I still can't quite figure out where to begin. A lot has happened this winter, and I think I'm still just processing it all. So this is just for fun: some awesome stories I've read lately, that I desperately wanted to share.

1. In Gotham, the night bumps back by blueofthebay: a Galentine's fic about Oracle!Babs Gordon. There are no words for how much I love this, other than perfection. Gosh, hit on my thing for strong female characters why don't you, Laura. It's just incredibly well done.

2. And Let the Future In by ashen_key: Marvel Cinematic Universe/His Dark Materials (daemon AU). While it's a take on what each Avengers' daemon would be, it's also an absolutely brilliant piece about each member of the team, their backgrounds, and their character. The last chapter is my absolute favorite. I adore how Thor is treated in this fic (and the rest of them, for that matter). I just have a lot of feelings and need you to read it so you can have feelings, too.

3. To the End, Against Odds Uncounted by Rosa Lui: a Sarah Rogers / Steve Rogers fic that just dug inside me, pulled out my headcanon, and slapped it on the page. It's so great, you guys. The details make it come alive, it's well-researched, and hot damn did I mention my thing for strong female characters? I love Sarah Rogers, and I love this fic.


Not a fic, but I want to rustle up interest in a community on Dreamwidth called Marvelous Heroines. If you like female Marvel characters, it could use some signal boosting and activity. Particularly if you make things, like awesome fanfics about Marvel ladies. Link, link, link.

And that's all I've got for now. Expect more later, question mark? /pans out to dramatic TO BE CONTINUED music...

Dudes. Four years ago today they released "Return of the King" in theaters. Where does time go? In honor of this auspicious day (suspicious? what day is it?), check it out: How We Became Middle Earth, yet another book! This one about NZ meets Middle Earth.

*wibbles* Whedon, Minear Creative Screenwriting Expo DVDs on sale for $12.95. I... I want! *pouts dramatically* DANG IT I HATE BEING POOR! I really want this.

Note to self: stop forgetting to buy Serenity comics, because new ones are being released and the longer you wait the more money you'll pay. Also to be released, "A Shepherd's Tale" comic featuring Book. Wheee, we get some *spoilerific* BACKSTORY on Book! Finally! I WISH THERE WAS GOING TO BE MORE FIREFLY, STUPID FOX NETWORKS! *shakes fist*

Oh, I am so all about THIS ACTION! Star Trek the tour?!?! I'm so hitting this sucker when it comes to NC. "THE TOUR will provide a unique opportunity to experience Star Trek up close and personal with sets, props and models, motion-simulator rides, merchandise and more all under one very large roof." Wheee!

Japanese Exercise Video/Language class? This... this... this is about the funniest thing I've seen in YEARS. No exaggeration. I laughed until there were tears - it's been a while since I've done that. The phrases they're reciting are so serious and ... they're doing AEROBICS?! *dies* WATCH THIS VIDEO.

50 Nerdy Things to do Before You Die. Some of these are pretty clever/hysterical. My favorite has to be #25.

I automatically endorse any comic that can make a respectable Pee Wee Herman joke. Such brilliance.

How many people have seen the new BSB music video for Helpless When She Smiles? I'm almost embarrassed to post this here. This video is so bad it's led me to declare the Boys just aren't even trying anymore. Aw what the hell, how about a black and white video filmed with a random emo girl out in the middle of nowhere? That sounds new and original. *shakes head* Like a bad Calvin Kline commercial. And I have to say I am rather annoyed that they chose this song to be their next single. Out of all the other perfectly respectable songs on their new album, they chose the freakin' rehashed syrupy overdone BALLAD. BOYS, DO I HAVE TO COME BEAT YOU?! WHAT ON EARTH ARE YOU THINKING?!?! *pinches bridge of nose* Worst choice for a single EVER.

In case you haven't seen it already, The trailer for The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. The trailer begins playing immediately. And also, screen-captures! May 16th!!! Wheeeee!

Also, I would like to preface this link by saying I in no way endorse this movie: Trailer for The Dark Knight. Posted because you have to watch/listen to Heath Ledger's Joker and think to yourself: "...the hell just happened?!" o_O *twitch*

I give the movie 4 out of 5 stars.

GREAT movie. Like 4 9/10 out of 5 stars. ;)



Hm, I'm slightly relieved. I would have expected it to be more.

Finally, if any of my friends out there are having a crappy day and need a little glee? Click here, and I promise you'll be squeeing. (Warning: many pictures may cause the internetz to explode) :)

what i am

cowboy boots and summer dresses; thirty-something self-proclaimed geek, writer, artist, lover, laugher, cowgirl, fighter; chronically ill and chronically smiling, a mess of leather and lace, wild curls, and summer dresses; beating it off the beaten path, creating something out of nothing, making art with you. ♥
