End of Hellatus wrap u post~  
I'm really bad at updating this thing when my shows are on not to mention during hellatus; a whole month? lawd. I don't even have a good excuse, I've just been too lazy do write stuff down.
Anyway, shit I've been up to in the last while:

Supernatural )


blah blah blah school )


Everything else
- I recently started watching The Killing. It's an AMC show based on a Danish crime show called Forbrydelsen. Now, given my lack of interest in Scandinavian media(ironic considering where I live but, oh well) I haven't watched the original but the adaptation is really good so far. It's slow simmering, intense, depressing and sad and oh so good. Mirielle Enos fascinates me and Michelle Forbes just breaks my heart.

- I rewatched all 200 episodes of Sailor Moon in German a while ago and god did I forget how much I loved that show. I started watching it when I was 7 and it's been over a decade since I last watched an episode so nostalgia ahoy. Sidenote: I forgot how much of a pacifist Sailor Moon was. Also read the manga for the first time, which I don't usually do since I'm not the biggest comic fan but it's so pretty *___*

- PETER JACKSON POSTED A PRODUCTION DIARY OF THE HOBBIT AND OMFG I CRIED LIKE A BABBY, GANDAAAAALF ;___; and not only is Richard Armitage there being his foine ass self, HE'S SPEAKING IN MAORI ASDFGHJKL. I can't believe it's been over 10 years since they shot LotR and I can't wait for this to come out so I can once again fangirl the whole thing and fall in love with the inevitably awesome soundtrack ♥

- Game of Thrones premieres tomorrow and I AM SO EXCITE I CAN'T EVEN, IT LOOKS SO EPIC ASDFGHJKL BOROMIR, NIKOLAJ COSTER-WALDAU. PUPPIES. EPIC SETS. INTRIGUE. BLOOD AND GORE.
- I've been trying to keep my self as spoilerfree as possible because I haven't read the books. I really want to read the series but those puppies are 800 pages and *looks at the towers of books and journals* it's probably not gonna happen until I'm done with my BA project :(

- SPEAKING OF FANTASY. SHIT. LIKE. THIS. PISSES. ME. OFF. You don't like fantasy and sci-fi? Fine, but where the hell do you come off speaking for all of women as if we're one hive-mind, you don't speak for me and you sure as hell don't speak for others who enjoy this stuff. What the hell has gender to do with the media people like to watch? God forbid women enjoy politics, swordfights, characters and world-building, nooo we're only in it for the sex and romance. Kindly, gtfo out of my face and take your generalizations and sexist bullshit with you.
- Oh and apparently it's oh so hard having to use your brain while watching television. And this is just a small percentage of the stupid ass reviews currently floating around that have nothing to do with the actual show and everything to do with idiots with a hate-on for everything fantasy. Flames on the side of my face.

Well that went from squeeful to raegy pretty fast, I JUST HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS

BIRTHDAY! :D  
01. It's my birthday! Today, I turn 20 years old, which means that I am no longer a teenager. Woe. Anyway, I felt in a drawing mood LOL:



I suck at drawing guys but there ya have it.
Maaaan my tablet is on its last legs, poor thing, it's served me well for the last 5 years. I'd been hoping to get an Intuos4 but tbh the reviews about the fast nib-wear aren't convincing me to shell out so much money for it, especially since I haven't had to change the nib in my pen since I bought it :/ alas, Intuos3 seems to be discontinued. I'll wait and see before making a decision, I guess.

02. NEW LAYOUT! Felt it was time for a change after over a year with the same old same old :D

03. I've been a bit AWOL these last few weeks, sorry about that! I had to get my harddrive replaced, which took about a month so I was stuck on my netbook for the duration. NOT. FUN. Those things aren't meant for heavy usage ugh. Assignments have also been piling up as soon as classes started and I was on a trip to England/Scotland for a week or so, omg men in kilts *____*

Trolls exist! They steal your socks, but only the left ones.  
01. Yay, I changed my LJ background! I figured it was about time, it's been almost a year (how time flies) since I last changed it up - and well with finals going on, what better way to procrastinate eh? ...lol yeah I'm screwed :/ fuck I hate writer's block.
Hmm, the style was somewhat inspired by the works of the very talented and lovely [livejournal.com profile] aesc but of course, it's not even half as good as her stuff, so check her out!

02. As for Supernatural 5.20 "The Devil You Know", it was a good episode. Crowley is a fucking fierce bitch and I will be sad when they inevitably kill him off. Oh and Crowley and Growley = ♥. However we're down to the last 2 episodes and I feel like we didn't get much done in this one, they should've aired it earlier in the season.

03. Now, I'm not a person who generally likes computer-animated movies all that much, Monsters inc. and Ratatouille being some of the few that I can list off the top of my head that I've enjoyed. I'm a traditional animation girl at heart, and feel that 3D loses some of that charm that 2D has. However, I have gone completely gaga over How To Train Your Dragon, my poor Twitter peeps can attest to that heh, idk how many times I've watched it by now - it's just so fricking adorable *melts*, I mean, just look at him/them:




He's like a kitty cat. Fuck Pandora, I want my own adorable Toothless. Hiccup is so cute and funny and Astrid is one cool chick. Yes I darn well ship it, I can't help it. Also, Craig Ferguson and Gerard Butler make an awesome team just fyi mmmm Scottish accents...

I might do a picspam when I get the DVD...in a few months ack. The sequel will be released in 2013 (so loooong D;) and apparently there'll be a TV Show as well. Now I'm normally not much of a fan of franchises like this - just look at Shrek, there is no end to it gawd - but this time I really don't care, I just want more! I hope they can keep the same cast and crew, and of course the composer because the soundtrack is so lovely and wonderful and I love it. So if you haven't watched it yet and have some time to spare I'd definitely recommend this movie, it's become one of my all time favorites.

04. I need to stop procrastinating :/

SUPERNATURAL 5X14 "MY BLOODY VALENTINE"  
I DON'T EVEN...



Can't believe I'm writing this at 5AM, please forgive the inevitable errors.

01. FIRST OFF: THIS EPISODE SHOULD COME WITH A WARNING. FUCK, I'M NOT EASILY SQUEAMISH BUT JFC ON A CRACKER. This is the first time that I felt like, sick to my stomach when I watched something, I'm not usually squeamish. Then I had a full blown panic attack was alone and sitting in the dark, I know, wuss, I couldn't breathe in deeply and idek D: but then of course Jensen's all...fuck ;___; I forgot about the PA and just burst into tears. Fuck I love this show. Edlund you sick mofo.

Spoilers, obviously )


Back to depressing matters, ~HELLATUS OF DOOM~ PART TWO IS UPON US >:⎮ *shakes fist* DAMN YOUR EYES!!!

I HATE BEING COCKBLOCKED >:|  
TWATTER IS FROZEN.
RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE

01. LOL honestly? I thought that everyone just suddenly got a life but FOR HOURS? I think not. PEOPLE WERE THERE BUT I WAS BASICALLY TALKING TO MYSELF, SOME SERIOUS TWILIGHT ZONE SHIT RIGHT THURRR. I've become addicted to this piece of crap, on principle I still hate it with the fire of a thousand burning suns because, you know, IT'S TWATTER. But it's my crack omg.


FIX IT TWATHOLES.


IT'S WORKING, THANK HEATHUS/SAMIFER. PRAISE THEIR LIGHT.

so. pretty. omg + ffaf leftover + random ranting.  
01. I'm so totally late for the SPN bandwagon that it's ridiculous. I was reluctant for a long time, largely due to the whole Wincest-fandom thingy. However, being pretty much show/fandomless for the summer and my fanfic resources running dangerously low, made me regroup and broaden my horizons a bit; I somehow got drawn to Supernatural and I blame Jensen Ackles/Dean Winchester completely.


With Jensen + Misha, this show is really rating high on my prettyness scale. Oh Jensen, being this dorkysexyHOTomgpretty should be illegal.

02. Which reminds me: FFAF at [livejournal.com profile] ohnotheydidnt was so much fun last week. I am addicted to that place srsly, it has its ugly/annoying sides(I really question the sanity of some of the members, and the J&K+8 fixation irritates me to amazingly high levels) but damnit I cannot go without my daily fix. Anyway, I completely forgot that I made this .gif in preparation for FFAF:



Inspired by THIS awesome post from the same day.
*sigh* I love .gifs, I really do, but Photoshop(I still ♥ u bb) usually uses up all my virtual memory when I want to make 'em and, well, my poor old PC can only handle so much memory usage at once before giving out and making my life miserable. I've tried UnFREEz, a very lightweight app, but the gif becomes just way to slow, even at a framerate of 0.

03. Random: I am not an easy person to squick, I can handle blood and guts, and horror movies bore me to tears. However, something about Nip/Tuck just makes my skin crawl(no offense to anyone who watches it) - and it's not the operations, but...idk the characters, the show in general just...ick.

04. Now, I may don't be a fan of Buffy season 4-7(excluding some eps. like Hush and The Gift), but to even consider a Buffy movie WITHOUT the original cast/crew, should be considered as blasphemy /end rant.
