Quick Reaction: 15x02 Raising Hell

We're back!

Watching live while typing, because I'm house-sitting for my friend who has a legit TV.

Let me know what y'all thought in comments!

Quick Reaction: 15x01 Back to the Future


I do apologize for being so busy as of late. This reaction is going up pretty late in the night too, because I had VERY BUSY DAY.

Before we get into it though, I just wanted to mention that I HAVE ORDERED the S14 DVDs - they should be arriving tomorrow. So that means that rewatches will begin imminently. I'm not sure what I'm going to be doing this year. Maybe similar to what I did last year, when I also couldn't figure out what I was doing. Because I'm so busy, they'll probably be favouring the short-side rather than the indepth reviews that I used to do - but hopefully ya'll still enjoy them.

Reminder about how Quick Reactions work: I've only seen the episode once, while drinking, and taking bad notes - all quotes are meant to be paraphrased and I'm not going to remember everything exactly. Please only correct me if the thing I got wrong is crucial to my understanding of the plot or character actions, or if I ask you to.

Let's get into this season premiere - it's the first of the last!

You think the snake just dreams up the poison in his headCollapse )

Let me know your thoughts in comments!!!

What's up!


Sorry about not posting more this hellatus/summer. Things just sort of got away from me, and it was enough just to keep up with the weekly posting schedule of my current WIP on AO3.

I will post updates to my fave scenes per season and whatnot probably next summer, when I can do S14 and S15 at once.

In the meantime, I've have an okay summer. Busy, stressful, but nice whether and good visits with friends and family.

The rains have started to return to Vancouver now, which means that it'll soon be time for Supernatural....

The plan is as it has always been - there will be Quick Reactions after thee show airs each week, and at some point after the first week of October, I'll get my hands on the S14 DVD and I'll start doing Rewatches. I'll be timelining as the show airs, and cataloguing clothes as a I rewatch... and both those things will go up at the end of the year.

In personal news, I need to find a way to earn more money. I still have my job, don't worry - but I need to start doing better than "just getting by." I wish I were slightly more employable - I keep trying to think of things I could do independently, but I honestly can't think of anything. I'm not an artist, so I can't do a patreon or anything. My only marketable hobby is writing, really, and lord knows 90% of writers have a dayjob completely unrelated to writing because writing doesn't pay. So, that feels like a dead-end. It's all rather frustrating, especially with the economy only likely to get worse as society continues to sink into this current pit of despair.

ANYHOO - Supernatural is a month and a day away! Woo! Fun times! And did you see the gag reel was slipped out today? It's delightful as usual. :)

I hope you all had a good summer!

Hello again! Apologies for this being two days late! I had a busy day yesterday and didn't have time to upload my pictures and whatnot!

Monday, bright and far too early, I made my way downtown to get on the location tour bus! My shoes had given me blisters the day before, and I thought "hopefully this location tour doesn't require that much walking!" and spoiler - it did. But that's okay!

Let's get into it.. WITH PICTURES....

Picture heavy! Best viewed on computer!Collapse )

REPORT DONE! :) This entry was originally posted at https://hells-half-acre.dreamwidth.org/580733.html.


VanCon 2019: Sunday Report!

Hello! I'm still alive!

Sorry I went MIA there for a bit. My summer turned out to be a very busy one, and it was enough to just find the time to post a chapter of my current WIP fic on AO3 every week, let alone do anything else.

But, I'm back! And I'm back with a ticket to the Vancouver Supernatural convention for Sunday, courtesy of a friend of mine who very kindly bought it for me. Yay!

It was a last-row GA ticket, so I took the morning while the gold panel was happening to go have breakfast with some friends. Then I meandered into the convention motel around 1pm, managed to see a FEW people I knew (Sadly, a lot of the regular faces weren't there this year, or maybe I just missed them, but either way - they were missed.) 

Then I settled into my very back row seat for the 4 panels of the day. And started taking sketchy notes - so enjoy this report! Where everything is paraphrased!
Rob, Ruth, Jared, Jensen, and Richard...Collapse )

I DID score a sweet location tour ticket for tomorrow (technically today! So, provided I don't miss the buss in the morning, I'll be going to that and will have another report!

Stranger Things 3

I just finished watching Stranger Things 3 and I am FULL OF FEELINGS.

It was great, I should begin with that. I like that they followed more the format of S1 with breaking up the storylines so that everyone was in a different movie genre until they caught up with each other at the end.

I will put the rest under a cut so that I don't spoil anyone...

Spoilers!! Like seriously - I spoil the right up until the very endCollapse )

Okay, I'll stop blathering now, this is so incoherent. Let me know what you thought in comments! If you have watched.... if you haven't watched, why did you read this?! :P

Clothing for S13 Posted!

That only took me a month longer than I intended... thanks to those of you who were patient!

As usual, you can check out all clothes from the If Clothes Could Talk Master Post. But if you just wanted to look at the Season 13 list, you can click through to it. If you want to see thumbnails, go to the master post and search by type of clothes, rather than by season or individual. (putting thumbnails in seasons or individuals makes the posts too long for LJ)

The charts and graphs are posted under Season 13 without commentary... but if you want my commentary, click on the cut-text below...

Charts and Graphs!Collapse )

And there you have it! CLOTHES!

S14 clothes will be posted after S15 concludes.

Good Omens

"Hey," you say to me. "Didn't you say you were going to finish up the S13 clothing posts, and then do a bunch of other stuff? How come that hasn't happened yet?"

Oh, well... you see....

I'm currently writing a non-fandom short-story for a little local thing that my friends are doing, and it's due on Thursday, so a lot of my time has gone into that.

...and also...


For those who don't know - Good Omens is six part miniseries that is an adaptation of a Neil Gaiman + Terry Prachett novel of the same name. It follows the unlikely partnership of an angel (Aziraphale) and a demon (Crowley) as they try to prevent Armageddon.

So, Good Omens aired on Amazon Prime, and then I promptly stole it, because I am but a poor person and I really hate how we're expected to have fifty-billion streaming sites now. And then I watched it.... and then I watched it again... and then I cut it into a 3 hour movie of just Aziraphale and Crowley's storyline (as I am wont to do.)

Needless to say, it's VERY GOOD. It has all the best bits that I remember from the book, and also a few little changes and additions that I think just make it even MORE awesome.

When the casting was announced eons ago, I have to admit that I was a little bit skeptical - I thought David Tennant might be really good for Crowley (in this case, for those still reading who aren't familiar with the book, it's pronounced CROW-ly, rather than SPN's CROWE-ly - also briefly 'Craw-ly' before he changes it. Also, for those who aren't aware, SPN's character was an homage to the Good Omens one, as Good Omens came out in 1990 and Kripke is huge fan).

I was a little skeptical about Michael Sheen, i think just because I haven't had the pleasure of seeing him in anything before, and also he didn't QUITE match up with how I pictured Aziraphale... and while it's true that he didn't play him quite like I imagined Aziraphale, I have to say that I think he might have...done it... better. :P

So, needless to say, I'm IMMENSELY PLEASED with the miniseries.

Also, they got permission from Brian May to include all the Queen songs!!!! It's so well done, and they're always chosen so well for the scene!

My only criticism is a minor-directorial one, in that there's a few blocking/character-position issues towards the end when things get a little bit epic and there's a lot of people in space to keep track of... but again, it's SO MINOR. Overall, the whole thing is near perfection.

Spoilery discussionCollapse )

ANYWAY, go watch it, if you haven't. And then write me a bunch of fic, because I don't have time to do it myself!

Still alive


So, just a quick update - I know I still have the new shirts to post for S13 clothes - but I'm having a bit of a busy week this week, and I'll be away this weekend - so those probably won't get done until next week at the earliest, and possibly not until June... along with the charts and graphs to follow.

I've also still want to review the special features on the S13 dvds, so that'll also happen in June sometime.

Other than those items, I don't have a summer posting plan this year... I'm trying to work on fanfic more, but life and procrastination are getting in my way. Back in the day, I used to use fanfic to procrastinate other things, but now I tend to consume media when I'm procrastinating rather than produce it. So, my apologies for being absolutely horrible.

That being said, here's a vague outline of the stories I want to finish/write:

1. Third installment for Men of Legend 'verse. (nearly done)
2. Secret final-final installment for Demented'verse, which I already officially ended, but then was like "but...I've had another idea..."
3. Possible expansion of my The Time Traveler marvel fanfic about Bucky
4. There's a Tony Stark fic that I want to exist, that I won't outline here because of spoilers - but I don't think I want to write it myself.
5. I also really love Tony Stark falls into parental love with Peter Parker fics, and have read pretty much every single one on AO3 (even the bad ones), and sometimes when I go that hard on something I write one myself because I start getting pissed off at the OOC fics (which has indeed started to happen).. but, not sure if that's going to happen this time, seeing as how it might just be time for me to find a new fandom obsession anyway and also I'm the WORST at getting writing done swiftly these days and I've got 3 stories that I want to do more. (Though 1 is already nearly done.) 
6. I'd also like to do some prompt fics perhaps. I used to get some great ideas from prompts (Men of Legend came from a kinkmeme prompt.) But again, if I can't even finish the fics that I already have ideas for, this might be a pipe dream.

Anyway, that is what is up! 

Let me know if there's any other sort of post you'd like me to do on this final hiatus! Oh man...
