SO, progress update on Inktober, cuz I should try to do at least one a week.

... I did 6 pokemon drawings so far. Am mid-sketch of a 7th and did a sketch of someone (I was thinking of a Homestuck kid) dabbing... I don't know why, I was inspired in the moment. xD

At this point, I know I'm too lazy to get the whole 31 drawings done, at least not by halloween. We'll see, of course. xD

Writing-wise, um, nothing much? I still have two fics I haven't started to write. And I read over an incomplete Homestuck fic from 2013 and made some edits on it. Then I searched for the snippet of the third chapter I was talking about in an earlier post. I added like one sentence to it and realized I wasn't 1000% confident I could still get their voices right?? So I'm holding off on too much Homestuck stuff until I refresh myself with a new read through...

Or, you know, watch the read throughs on youtube because do you know how long Homestuck is??? It's not even completely read through on YT so I'd still have to read like all of Act 6. @.@ (But then, maybe I will actually just read it all? I dunno yet.)

And this reminds me I fell behind a chapter of Gunnerkrigg Court. Anyone else still reading it? =D

I want to make a playlist to go with NaNo story, cuz I saw there's a badge for doing it and I like badges, and playlists! So once I hammer out my story more, I'll be doing that. =3

Now for some sleep! x.x

Miraculously, I remembered what month I posted it and then used the fic to figure out what year. T^T I'm so happy.

I lost this snippet when my old laptop first suffered from a harddrive crash, back in 2013. I'm so glad I had posted this snippet somewhere online where I could later come back to find it. T^T

Still reading Virtual Histry, but have not made much progress. Started The Taming of the Queen by Philippa Gregory as it was at hand as Kindle book on my tablet when I finished Stonehenge and Ivanhoe by Walter Scott (another SantaThing pressie) on the train yesterday.

I had a really fun final game of the night session of Town of Salem (omg, being vet is literally the best role ever) and now I'm going to bed cuz TIRED. xD

Just wanted to say my NaNo story idea/brainstorming thingabob is still open to ideas. So far, I'm looking at a potential NaNo Original fic with femslash, involving skypirates, mystery, and a possible revenge questline. =D More ideas are welcomed! (Setting? Genres? Cryptids or not? xD )

Also - [community profile] holly_poly is open for signups! It's a multimedia exchange for OT3s and moresomes! =D I already signed up and sign ups look a little slow, so come on! (Maybe they're not slow, I just may be really excited about them.)

[community profile] femslashex, btw, has their collection open for extra fics/treats and author reveals haven't happened yet so maybe write a drabble for someone? I wrote one! =D I'm hoping to write more, even after reveals. =B --- I really wanted to participate in the exchange, but I wasn't confident in my writing at the time of signups so I bowed out. Now, however, I wanna WRITE SO MUCH YAY! xD

And I believe [community profile] smallfandombang is still open for signups! I still haven't decided exactly on what I want to write, but I'll think of something.

Ok, sleeeep nowwwww. =3=

My third and final London Film Festival film was The Battle of the Sexes, about Billie Jean King ending up to play Bobby Riggs. I didn't really know anything about her or the story of the match beyond the brief description in the programme. It was a fun film to watch—the tennis was fun to watch, the female characters were great and Billie Jean's husband was sweet, but I found the constant, casual sexism depicted in the film quite shocking. And I don't know if the real-life Bobby Riggs had any redeeming qualities but the film version certainly didn't.

Title: The Witch Hunt of the Tamer of Flames
Fandom: Town of Salem
Word Count: 1306
Warnings: Implication of sexism and racism
Rating: PG
A/N: The speed at which I which I wrote this is not even funny. Just over an hour, and most of that was editing. I think I'm upset - as both a female and PoC. This is based solely on my own experience and should not deter you from attempting to play this game. This, somewhat sadly, fits the 'Witch Hunt' square on my [community profile] hc_bingo card.

I'm working on being more active online. I spend so much time online but I'm always quiet as hell. xD Remember my good old days of random posts? I need to go back to that. =B

Lessee... I'm at 16 out of 25 books for the Goodreads reading challenge. Um......! 11 of them are manga. /o\ At this point I'm not even gonna fight it. ALSO, why is Stephen King's IT so goddamn longggggggg??? I will finish it before the end of 2017 but hot damn. xD (I never read it before so.)

I'm back to reading the Teppu manga, btw. Woo! (I'm, already, debating what to manga to read next. I'm torn between Akuma no Riddle and Hanakaku. I saw the Akuma no Riddle anime a while back but I always wanted to check out manga. (And I guess at this point it would be a good refresher... And I want more Haruki/Isuke, okay? Jeeze, talk about twisting my arm... xDD ) But Hanakaku sounds really good! =S

Ah and does anyone watch Fear the Walking Dead? Cuz I'm so disappointed they killed off a character I really like in the recent episode and I need someone to be angry and disappointed with. xD (ALSO, Channel Zero: No End House! WUUUUT???!)

As for games, Town of Salem has been frustrating lately. I've had a lot of false accusations against myself in the first TWO DAYS get me hung lately. FRUSTRATING.

Oh, and concerts! I wanna go to a music concert in February! I'll prob have to go alone tho. =( Peeps don't like my music. (It's just rock but I'm greatly alone in my alt rock/rock love at home.)

Also, I applied for FAFSA earlier. I accidentally submitted before checking it thoroughly. crap. Hoping I can edit it soon. I applied for next fall. I thought of applying for spring but meh, I rather wait it out til fall. I'm still not sure if I should do part time or full time college. It's going to kill me either way. rip me. x.x;

I finished up all the current chapters of Gakkou Gurashi! | School-Live!

I'm spent.

Actually, no, I desperately want more but hiatus???? *weeps*

Finally, a good zombie story! And it has school girls! And it's not about the fanservice, necessarily! And it has characters with fucked up psyches because hello zombies are traumatizing! Also mystery!

I'm like, half tempted to read it over tbh. xD But I won't cuz now I can get back to Teppu.

I'm debating watching the anime cuz I know the story is different and the manga story is like perfect the way it is. I doubt the anime even has the university in it. =/ We'll see I suppose.

Also, I signed up for the [community profile] smallfandombang and I did put School-Live! as one of my possible fandoms cuz I really need more Miki/Kurumi in my life. But dang, none of the fanfic has the uni girls and I'm TORN.

However, more than likely, I am leaning toward writing a Lilo & Stitch/The Little Mermaid fic cuz Nani/Ariel needs to be more of a thing, just sayin'. xD

Also, NaNo next month!? I dunno man. I"ve been so behind on writing, but I itch to write some original fic too. So, I dunno. (I could probably do it all in NaNo, technically. Make good headway. That'd be nice for once. Lessee.)

queen_ypolita: A section of a film reel (Film)
[personal profile] queen_ypolita
I saw two films at the London Film Festival yesterday (both at Hackney Picturehouse): A Moment in the Reeds and Mudbound. The former was good, the latter was confusing: it felt like it didn't quite know whose stories it wanted to tell, so it tried to tell everybody's and didn't do it very effectively. And it had a bunch of pretty unpleasant characters that it sometimes felt like the film wanted you to root for—I couldn't muster any enthusiasm for Jamie, for one.

A Moment in the Reeds reminded me a little of God's Own Country (which I ended up seeing a second time in between) with its two main characters having moments almost in a world of their own for a while, here in the apparently isolated summer cottage in the height of summer rather than up the hill in the lambing season. I found the character of Tareq compelling (and at the Q&A at the end with the director and the actors playing Tareq and Leevi, someone in the audience who said he was Syrian said the character definitely chimed with his experiences) and Leevi mostly infuriatingly selfish. He had his better moments and while I don't really think I've ended up in the UK in an attempt to find somewhere where I've got greater freedom to be who I am, there were various bits about what Leevi said and did that I recognised as something I've thought or felt or done. What the film did in contrasting Tareq feeling Finland was giving him the freedom to be who he is and Leevi feeling it was so suffocating and conformist so he'd escaped to study in Paris and felt much freer there was interesting, even if it came across a bit flat. I also felt that making Leevi's relationship with his dad so strained made them both a bit flat as characters: it was obvious that they didn't really share interests and had unresolved issues but the film didn't give them any chances to try to build bridges. At the end, I felt sort of hopeful for Tareq, but Leevi seemed doomed to not getting along with his father, suffocated by his surroundings and running away.
