SURFACING FROM THE GLORY OF GHOST STORY FOR FIVE MINUTES 'KAY

THE LAST WEEK OR SO IN REVIEW (CHIEFLY IN RELATION TO MY FANGIRL-NESS):

-Last Friday I saw the Cap movie. GOOD STUFF, MAN. Cap is a babe, just sayin'. :3 Though I still like Loki way more. |D

-Monday, I...had to be somewhere that was about an hour from home, and afterward I had a slightly-less-than-three-hour gap before I had to be at work, which is also an hour from home and in the same direction. So since coming home seemed rather futile and a waste of money, I...went to the $2 theatre instead and saw Thor again. THAT MAKES THREE TIMES NOW, WHAT EVEN IS THIS. And I will doubtless be buying it the day it comes out on video, which is September 13th by the way, heaven help me for knowing that without even having to look it up to double check.

-TODAY IS DRESDEN DAY DRESDEN DAY DRESDEN DAY and I was nearly useless at work because of it. And when the clock hit 4:30, I was out of there so fast I probably left behind burning skidmarks, Back to the Future-style. WILL DEF. NOT BE SLEEPING, ANYONE WHO IS FOOLISH ENOUGH TO DISTURB ME IS LOSING WHATEVER PART OF THEIR BODY THEY POKE THROUGH MY DOOR.

-Finally, CUTEST LIBRARY STORY EVERRRRR FROM TODAY. While working at the front desk, I checked out a kid who was doubtless, like, six. He dumped an armload of comic books on the desk, as many as his little arms could carry, seriously, and...on his face, he'd drawn a mustache/goatee thing. And it must've been with those scented markers, and it must've been fresh, because I could still smell the licorice-scent the black markers of that brand have.

And. And, he...was pretending to be Tony Stark. He was pretending to be Tony Stark asdfjk;lasdjf; ahhhhh I normally don't particularly like kids, but I just about died from Cuteness Overload right then and there, WAY TOO FREAKIN' ADORABLE. X'D <33333333333333333

9000+ AWESOME POINTS FOR YOU, KID.


..ALL RIGHT NOW BACK TO DRESDEN /o/

So yeah, saw Thor about 2-3 weeks ago, and despite my initial reaction of Natalie Portman WHAT are you doing in my superhero movie? B| I actually rather enjoyed it. It was fun, at least, and then of course, I…well, the way someone over on Tumblr said it is the only way to really say it:

“…That awkward moment when you fall in love with the main character’s evil brother instead of the hero of the story.”

…Yes, I confess. I’m a Loki fangirl. I’ve always liked the character in Norse mythology--he’s always been my favourite mythological character, because, really… “The Trickster God”? How awesome of a title is that? (ANSWER: TTLY AWESOME.) And in this movie he was EASILY the character with the most depth, and I tend to like intelligent, complicated, slightly-broken characters best of all.

But yeah, the movie--I even went to see it a second time, which I don’t think I’ve done for a movie since LOTR back in HS, and when it hits the dollar theatres I might just have to go see it again. ..And I am writing fanfiction for some of the prompts over at [livejournal.com profile] norsekink. 8| Which, despite the name, is NOT only for porn and such; there’s good Genfic (like what I’m writing, lmao) and G/PG-rated stuff, and it’s all super-clearly labeled, so it’s REALLY easy to avoid whatever you just know will sear your eyeballs straight back into your brain or have you wishing you were born in the past when there was no Internet or at least that brain-bleach was an actual thing, which is nice. :

...........And I'll post links to my stuff if anyone's interested.


In other news, quick reviews of a few things I’ve been reading (and watching) lately! Under a cut so as not to fill/kill your Friends Pages. )
alory_shannon: Mr. Bilbo Baggins is about to go on An Adventure, whether he likes it or not. & without even a pocket-handkerchief! ("In a hole in the ground there lived...;)

...SO what with the online manga sites being shut down…like, TODAY/TOMORROW/EARLY THIS WEEK I decided that NOW IS THE TIME to read some of the things I’ve been meaning to.

And I won’t get to half of it, I know, but…I finally sat my ass down and got to work on the series at the top of my list: D.Gray-Man.

And. And I just love it. So, so much. As soon as I have money again, I’m buying the anime, because heeeeeee SO MUCH FIGHTING. <333 And I think Kanda is probably my fave, because I love me my swordsmen, and the Perpetual Grumpiness amuses me, but NO it has to be a tie since I absolutely cannot pick between Kanda and Lavi, and I love brave little Lenalee so much too, and Allen--ohmigosh ALLEN--he is just SUCH A BIG DAMN HERO ALL THE TIME and ahahaha did I mention that I love it? |D Plus SO many of the secondary characters are wonderful as well, and I think I’ve teared up…three or four times now, and I’m in the 140s chapter-wise SO I MUST HURRY AND FINISH CATCHING UP AAAA CANNOT SLEEP YEEEET. DX

But. Yes. Yes it’s every bit as good as I’ve heard.

I haven't seen much of the anime (aside from a few clips used in funny things and some AMVs), but this scene...I had to look up, because I wanted to see if there was music, and...there is and it is beautiful. The whole scene is beautiful.


…And now I want an exorcist’s coat. And character models of the main four. But mostly that exorcist’s coat. <33
alory_shannon: ...I will KISS YOU if you know what anime this is from without somehow cheating & looking it up. KISS YOU. (Oh reeeeeeeeeally now;)

...I'm sitting at the front desk at work, and...someone just came in and asked if we had a sewing machine here.

We are a LIBRARY. Let me think...uhhhh, NO?

WHAT.
