So, I have been watching Robot Wars the last few weeks, and it is PRETTY GREAT. I have mostly been livetweeting it, which means my thoughts on any given episode are functionally lost to the aether? But have some disorganised general thoughts on all six episodes I guess?

(It was only six episodes, guys, this is WELL unfair!)

Fair warning: I am HELLA NOSTALGIC about Robot Wars, and I am absolutely the sort of person who sits there chanting "THREE! TWO! ONE! ACTIVATE!" with the crowd! I kinda miss Craig Charles? But the new presenters are fine! And I was so glad to see the housebots back again. :D MATILDA! MY QUEEN! MATILDA IS THE PRETTIEST AND MOST TOUGH ROBOT, I LOVE HER. She has been my favourite the housebot since I first saw Robot Wars as a kid, and I am SO GLAD SHE'S BACK. I genuinely don't care that Sgt. Bash is gone, but I know some of my friends are a little disappointed? But who cares, because MATILDA.

Cut for spoilers, I guess? If anyone cares about spoilers for a tv show that has finished its current run?Collapse )
So [personal profile] seventhe has made a Final Fantasy Fanworks group on Imzy (If anyone wants invites, HIT ME UP because I have them! I am there under the usual name) and there are PROMPTS. Do I remember how to write FFX-2? DO I BOLLOCKS. But I had fun! Maybe!

OKAY LET'S DO THIS. Dearly beloved, we are here so that I can actually get through all of Daredevil, it might not take. It didn't take last time I tried it? I think I remember episode... Eight? Fisk is a thing, he is hardcore creeping on an artist? And Karen is great except that she was SUPER RUDE to Foggy who appeared to be a delight. But this time, I have a strong backing of fluffy shipper fic to support me instead of Lex and my housemate, Mike, who are FINE to watch TV with but also don't do the shipping thing so it's a waste of time watching with them. Let's rock.

OKAY, there are like two hours until the start of the Hugo Award ceremony and I am so nervous. I'm not sure if we're gonna win or lose, but either way I'm kinda excited and kinda terrified and all I can do until the actual ceremony starts is my homework (noodling at writing, reading Cold Magic).

I THINK I'M EXCITED. I THINK THIS WILL BE FINE EITHER WAY because omg people voted for us which means people like us! And I am so grateful! *rolls* I wish Lex was here, I'm at my mum's and I wish I could wait for this while cuddling my husband but I GUESS books and shouting will have to do.
"What, you nervous?" Rick asked. Drake had jumped out of a helicopter trying to get away from the team that brought him in, hard to imagine him knowing what fear was.

"I don't always... Get along with soldiers," Drake said, his grin looking more like a grimace when Rick glanced over at him. "They get upset over the whole 'graverobbing' thing, and it's hard to make friends when people are shooting at you."

"Do your job and they won't be shooting at you." Rick reminded him, checking his watch. "And I'd take my chances with them over Waller any day."

So [personal profile] scarimonious and I had TERRIBLE IDEAS on twitter today.
