movie review: Star Trek Beyond

Sunday, July 31st, 2016

I liked it! Similar to the other two movies, the closer you look at the plot the less it makes sense, but in a cheering reminder of the first one, I found I didn’t really mind. It made me want to make up my own finagled half-answers to explain things, instead of making me want […]

STAR TREK Caturday

Saturday, July 30th, 2016

Aww yeah, it’s STAR TREK day! In IMAX! 3D! (It was a very weird week at work, exacerbated by every decision needing to go through five steps of approval, with at least one of the five always on vacation. The weekend is a welcome reprieve.) Time to go watch EXPLOSIONS IN SPACE! And also some […]

ten times as long (to put yourselves back together), by inkvoices This is a brilliant idea — rather than waiting until all those pesky MCU Phase 3 movies come out, just start writing fix-it fics now! Yes please! (Plus, baby Groot tree! Aww…) “So, what you’re telling me is that this is a completely unknown […]

But we’ve never really had a temp doing this before, and everyone is in that weird situation of being all, ‘Welcome! We’re so glad to have you here! Temporarily!’ It seems immensely wrong that this person is being […]

I am done with today already. Next time around, I get to be the cat.

Usually I don’t click through to see more on my tumblr, but there has been some really good stuff lately, including new movie trailers from SDCC! 1. Wonder Woman trailer (First, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman is legit the only thing I’ve ever loved about DC movies. Second, “Do I not look like one?” Other […]

A+ plan for the day:

kudos to less than perfect

Saturday, July 23rd, 2016

When I was struggling to finish my last writing project, the thing that got me through was reading imperfect fic. My own, other people’s, anything that crossed my screen. Because I could look at it and know that objectively speaking, it had some problems, but I WAS STILL ENJOYING IT! In every story there was […]

Slithering, by astolat Set immediately after the war — I really liked seeing the recovery from Draco’s perspective. Also another fascinating take on Narcissa Malfoy, one of my fandom faves. “So.” Harry paused and stared at him through the gates, evidently at a loss when he couldn’t yell and stamp his foot any longer.
