Marvel Cinematic Universe (Mostly Loki/Tom Hiddleston and/or Blackfrost)
Soul Eater/Soul Eater Not
I need new blogs to follow!!! I want my own blog to be more multifandom as well as my fash!! :3 Plus I like making new friends!!
MCU, DW, Sherlock for a couple months around its airing, and Defiance.
Oh that makes sense, viewing it as a Stahma vs. Datak thing. Many of the folks in that #Defiance tag seam to be “Team Stahma vs. the world” though.
Personally I don’t want Datak dead, not for a while at least. He’s such a slimy oddball and wonderful for storylines.
I can completely understand getting behind a well-written character with questionable or even non-existent morals, and in this way I love Pottinger and Yewll and Stahma. But I could never bring myself to root for them. Rather, they’re characters it’s enjoyable to root against (while simultaneously caring about and maybe hoping for reform). That’s where the disconnect is. But I guess I can understand rooting for a character to establish themselves as a villain(ess).
I read The Princess Bride in three days. Oh, of course I’d been shown the movie long ago, and I knew there was a book, but I’d not brought myself around to hunting it up. Instead it had to fly at my face while I was at Barnes & Nobles. After that I could barely put it down. I stayed up much too late to read not because, as my Mother said, the book had removed sense from my head, but because I sensibly decided that the consequences of staying up late were worth the story.
I GREATLY look forward to reading this to my children. But it will not be only Goldman’s words that I read to them. More on that later.
This is the last week I’m complaining about Defiance sex drama. Y’all know I don’t like it and that am trying to figure out if the show is worth having to skip forward so often. From now on there shall only be positive Defiance posts, unless I decide I’m quitting, in which case you’ll get a quick announcement.
Because Nolan is cheating, and Berlin’s randomly having a one night stand because lazy writing. Said lazy writing is making me want to quit the show. Again. I can’t decide if the beautifully-built world and all right storylines are worth wading through the drama muck…
Pottinger is a horrible, horrible person and I WANT CHURCHILL BACK. And of course the Gulanee was cool, but I wish she’d gotten away and taken to picking off anyone who left or came near Defiance. Also what about her comrades? Many of the capsules were still sealed. And how does smashing her suit kill her? Wouldn’t she continue to exist, albeit highly limited in her ability to interact with the physical world? I demand more Gulanee with better handled storylines.
Stahma killing the man who threatened her life is fine. Stahma killing three abused wives in order to kill him is not so fine. I honestly don’t get all the Stahma love going on. I mean, her character is fantastic, always inventive and hard to predict. I love her factor in the narrative. But people are actually rooting for her?
Tommy is no good with women. I am sick and tired of “people keeping secrets from each other for warped reasons because drama” being a trope. Related to hating all sexual relationship drama, I am pretending the Nolan-Berlin thing didn’t happen because I’m furious. I liked both these characters (sans their romantic entanglements) before.
GET OUT OF MY SKIN GET INSIDE OF THEIR SKIN OH MY WORD WHAT HAPPENS NEXT I can’t figure out what game Deirdre is playing. Also I don’t appreciate the tease last episode that Christie would cheat on her husband. I’m very glad Deirdre’s suggestive scene turned out to only mean “let me dress you up like a Casti.”
Ain’t no party like a Stahma party, ‘cuz a Stahma party don’t stop until everyone’s drank their tea.
STOP THAT, BERLIN AND NOLAN
Basically me. Going to pretend that didn’t happen.
