Quick Reaction: 13x06 Tombstone


I got to watch tonight's episode with the lovely metallidean_grl, because I'm in Portland! Next week I'll be back to Vancouver, but I'm still in vacation mode right now.

It was a lot of fun to watch with another fan - the last.. well, 4 episodes? I've watched alone. 

Anyway, let's actually talk about this thing - because I'm already sleepy.

EPISODE!Collapse )

As usual, let me know what you thought in comments. There's a lot I didn't say, because my brain turned to tired mush part-way through writing this, and now I must sleep/

Seriously, I can't actually see the words on the page right now.

 Hello! I am writing this is sunny southern California! Where I have foolishly gotten a sunburn on my first day in town, because I'm a dumb Canadian! 

It also meant that I watched the episode live, on TV, on it's own network! What the heck?! 

Now let's talk about the episode! Because it was really good (IMO) and I'm quite pleased with Steve Yockey's work here...

Under the cut!Collapse )

I gotta say, I know not everyone is digging it, but I'm enjoying the season a lot so far - way more than I thought I would. Though, it all hangs in the balance in terms of where they go from here.

Anyway, let me know your version of "the phone call" in comments!

As usual, if you hated the episode, please remember my rule: If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything. If you need to complain, that's okay, but you HAVE to balance it by also talking about things you like... and even though in the past I've allowed "Jared and Jensen are nice to look at." That's not going to fly, it has to be something of equal weight to the thing that you didn't like... and the positives and the negatives HAVE to balance. You can't give me 10 negatives and then say "I liked Sam's hair" as your only positive.

Quick Reactions are for positive thoughts. You have to wait until rewatches next year to be a complete sourpuss.

Quick Reaction: 13x04 The Big Empty


Sorry this Quick Reaction is so late. My friend had a REALLY bad day (to the point where some transphobic douchebag made them so angry they cried) and so we went out for "the world is garbage" beers, so they could vent about it to me. It's been a big week for friendship around here!

So, I didn't get to watch the show until 10pm PST... so, as usual - show only watched once, very rushed rough notes so that I can remember scene order, and so all quotes are paraphrased and I might get a few minor details wrong.

Let's talk about this thing!

I know what you hate, who you love, what you fear...Collapse )

So, as per usual, let me know what you thought in comments!! And remember the rule - if you're going to hate on things, you have to say nice things too!

Good News and Bad News

Good News: I have more time to write!

Bad News: I lost one of my jobs.

So, my lovely year of living comfortably is over and it's back to "just scraping by"... thankfully, I still have my second job - now my ONLY job.... I've asked if they might be able to give me more hours - but we'll see. I did survive on part-time pittance before, so I know I can do it again. And right now that job WILL cover rent and my "must pay" bills. So it's just food and incidentals that I have to worry about... and yeah, if they give me a few more hours a week, that might turn out okay.

But, there goes my plan of getting out of debt in two years. That relied on me having both jobs.

More Good News: I'm still going on my vacation, because that's already booked and (mostly) paid for! So, yay! VACATION to kick off underemployment.

"But Alix, how will this affect us?!" you ask? Well... maybe I'll get more fic written...or I'll be able to do my rewatches faster. So, really, from where you're sitting, this is ALL good news. Congrats! :P

Anyway, today sucked... didn't help that I was also suffering from PMS-induced anxiety. I was very very lucky that my local best friend had the day off and I was able to go over to their place at lunch and literally cry on them.

Then I went to an ASL Halloween party dressed as the Winter Soldier, and it was SUPER FUN.

It's been a Rollercoaster of a day, folks!

Stranger Things 2

I have broken my rule of not watching horror movies before bed (or videos after 11pm) and I've also stayed up past my bedtime - but I have now finished Stranger Things 2.  My biggest take away was that even though I didn't like it as much as the first season - it was still enough to hold my attention for two binge-watching sessions - something that no other show has done since...um... well, Stranger Things. So, well done. 4 out of 5 stars.

Spoilers galore!!!Collapse )

I'm sure I'l think of more things to say tomorrow... I gotta go get a ridiculously small amount of sleep now.

Quick Reaction: 13x03 Patience


So, still cat-sitting this week, so no walk home, only one glass of wine (really I should be sticking to one glass of wine on a weeknight anyway), but everything else the same - only watched the episode once, took notes badly, all quotes are paraphrased... blah blah blah...

Let's talk about our first set-up episode to the possible spin-off....

Patience, I said now!Collapse )

As usual, let me know your thoughts!

Fic: Monstrous Magic Marks - Complete

Final Chapter has been posted for Monstrous Magic Marks!

Genre: SPN/Harry Potter, Gen
Word Count: 76,946
Chapters: 18

Summary: As Sam becomes increasingly desperate to save Dean from the Mark of Cain, their friends decide it's time to step in and lend a hand - whether the Winchesters like it or not.

You can now read the entire story on AO3

You can comment there, or here, whichever you prefer. I hope you enjoy it!

It will be the last major multi-chapter fic for the demented'verse. I MAY write some short one-shots in the future, depending (I've got one small idea right now, but don't yet know if it's viable.) But, as it stands, I consider this the end of the demented'verse saga. I knew it's days were numbered once I started to take it canon-divergent AU in S9, but I'm really happy with the way it turned out, and I hope you are too!

Quick Reaction: 13x02 Rising Son


I've had only one glass of wine, but I'm actually housesitting, so I didn't have to walk home afterward. So, that's nice. Still, only took bad notes and watched once, so same old same old there.

Anyway, let's talk about the episode...

Behind ze cut...Collapse )

As usual, let me know what you thought in comments!

Rewatches delayed

Hey, so you may have noticed that I haven't started rewatches yet.

I've decided to wait until I'm back from my vacation in November. So, they'll start up sometime in late November. I know this ruins my plan of being done by Christmas, so I'll probably be aiming for February or something.

Rewatches will be a little different, as I won't be doing line by line dialogue interpretations - but just talking about the episode overall, sort of like my Quick Reaction stream-of-consciousness, but less recappy, more indepth, and with the benefit of hindsight. 

Anyway, the delay is mainly because a)I haven't ordered the DVDs yet. b)I'll be house-sitting for a friend for the next two weeks who owns entertainment that I haven't seen before and I'll want to spend that time watching things while I can, and c)I also don't want to interrupt the rewatch flow with a 2-3 week absence when I've just gotten started.

tl;dr: Rewatches start in late November, after vacation fun times!
