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.

  1. The summer reading challenge has started at work! I ended up setting up a treasure hunt, which lots of the parents and kids seemed excited about, and we joined SO MANY KIDS up to the library today! Including adorable twins and a little girl who was very proud to be answering all of the questions.

  2. I got SO MANY BOOKS today! Volumes 2, 3 and 5 of The Ancient Magus' Bride came in (they're still waiting on four!), the second book of DC Bombshells (... I need to read both of these and then AGGRESSIVELY FOIST THEM ONTO [personal profile] captainraz), and the volume of Until Death Do Us Part I somehow managed to skip over came in! And the library got the first fifteen volumes of Skip Beat in for me so I can reread them, and [personal profile] renay is hella jealous and she doesn't know why.

  3. I did a bit of a Pokémon jaunt while I was walking from the library to my mate's house (my regular Wednesday game was cancelled, we went round to stat characters/brainstorm for another game), and a) it is GREAT to go by the bit of the castle near the students and see hordes of people sprawling around blatantly playing Pokémon, b) someone dropped lures on all three overlapping Pokéstops, it was like a fucking swarm, c) I hatched a Snorlax! And an Eggsecute! d) I stopped for a minute to check out a gym, and a massive group of people stopped nearby with their phones out.

    "Oh wow, is everyone kicking Team Valour out of that gym?" says I, and this whole group goes YES. (Me and this one other dude were the token Team Instinct members! REPRESENT, TEAM YELLOW, WE ARE THE CUTEST!) We then proceed to kick Valour out of the gym, Mystic moves in, and I get invited to go on a Pokéwalk up to the castle with this swarm of people. :) I didn't, because I was running behind, but it was really nice to be invited!
Uncharted // Let's Start Living Dangerously
G | 816 words | Victor Sullivan, Nathan Drake | OKAY, technically no spoilers! Set pre-franchise, but using canon established in Uncharted 3? | Nate can look after himself. He's better at look after himself than Sully is, anyway.

Six months in and he still wasn"t willing to take the chance that Sully was gonna go out on a job and forget to come backCollapse )
