What I Watched Week # 38

Sep. 24th, 2017 07:57 am
fadedwings: (Leverage: OT3 in Green)
[personal profile] fadedwings
September 17 - 23

New (to me) TV:

Midnight Texas 1x09 & 1x10
Atlanta 1x01 - 1x05
Iron Fist 1x02
Gracepoint 1x01
The Mindy Project 6x02
The Good Place 2x01 & 2x02
The Orville 1x01 - 1x03

Re-Watched TV:

Leverage
Agents of SHIELD
The Flash

Notes:

I’m really glad that Midnight Texas is done (for now at least). I’m not sure how much more of it I could take. I did start out enjoying it a fair amount, but by half way through I was just about done. By episode 9 I was so done, but with only one more episode to go, it seemed silly to stop there.

Hulu finally has Atlanta. It is really good. Different and good. I like Donald Glover anyways, and this is very well done.

Iron Fist: Yes, I’m continuing to slog through this for some reason.

I borrowed Gracepoint from the library, but after seeing Broadchurch, Gracepoint just didn’t work for me and what was really the point when I’d already watched the original?

I’m really only still watching The Mindy Project because it’s the last season.

I already wrote about The Good Place here. [SPOILERS]

I’m really enjoying The Orville. I didn’t think I would, but I do. The first episode was a bit weak and uneven, but the second and third episodes were better. I’ll keep with this for now :)

I’m almost done with my Leverage Re-Watch. I’m watching the finale today. I love this show. I’m tempted to start again at the beginning when I’m done. It’s a major comfort watch for me, and I’ve really been needing that lately.

I found out today that one of my brothers and his wife are down in Florida. They were supposed to go on a cruise to St. Thomas with her family, but after Irma the plan changed to a different island--my mom didn't know which one--and then today he emailed them asking for a phone number for my cousin who lives in Ft. Lauderdale. No other explanation, so we're not sure if they're cruising or not.

But my question is, what are these cruise lines doing running business as usual down in the Caribbean right now? If they had any ethics or empathy, couldn't there be a way to get the boats down to people who need shelter (and power!) and take care of them until they can at least start to rebuild? Give people who've booked cruises the option of refunds or of using the money as a donation. The positive publicity would be incredible.

I don't know, maybe there are regulations or something that prevent it, but honestly, I would think this is a decent time to say screw the regulations if there's some way to help.

saturnofthemoon: (Claudius - reading is love)
[personal profile] saturnofthemoon
Given that I have a ton of schoolwork on my plate, it's the perfect time to update my journal.

I have not read Hilary Clinton's book yet, but all the one sentence one star reviews on Amazon are hilarious. Most of them are one sentence long reviews clearly written by people that just want to air their opinions on Hilary and have no intention of reading a single page of the item in question. I would really like to read "What Happened," but I generally don't buy books until they've hit the bargain bin and the library's reserve list is probably a mile long. Also, my self-imposed book-buying ban starts on my next birthday, which is exactly 31 days from now.

I'm not happy about the cancellation of Dark Matter. What am I going to do without Two in my life? (Note to self: get a Two icon or make one.) Because of Syfy's habit of constantly retooling its image, I've never seen a non-reality TV show that lasted more than five seasons on that channel. Killjoys got renewed and I guess that's good? I never made it past the pilot because Syfy no longer streams its shows on Hulu.

What are you currently reading?

The Best American Science Fiction and Fantasy 2015. (Yeah, I'm a little late.) So far it's the most delightful thing I've read all year. I encountered my first Seanan McGuire story and she certainly lives up to the hype.

Anansi Boys - Not as good as I expected. The characters are a little too flat for my taste.

What did you just finish reading

The Prince of Medicine: Galen in the Roman Empire by Susan P. Mattern - I gave it three stars on Goodreads because it is well researched and the author does a good job of remaining objective. However, I found the book's subject utterly unlikeable and the accounts of public dissections made my blood chill. I don't recommend it for anyone who isn't a diehard fan of ancient medical history.

The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood - Excellent, but definitely not an easy read. I feel Atwood chose the book's uneven narrative style to bring readers even further out of their comfort zone. There's also a spoilery explanation for it at the end. I'm not sure if I'm up for watching the TV show.

What do you think you'll read next?

Lately, my books have either been fantasy or non-fiction. I should tackle some of the unfinished series I have around my apartment, which consist of:

Kushiel's Legacy - There's sadly only one more Phedre book to go, then it's on to Imriel.

Dune - Given that I've read Dune three times over the past twenty years, I really should move on to the rest of the series.

Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars Trilogy - Meh, it looks like JMS isn't turning it into a miniseries after all. However, I still bought the whole trilogy and should finish it...someday. The world-building is mildly interesting, but I find most of the characters to be utterly unlikable, with the exception of Nadia and Arkady.

Lord of the Rings - *winces* I like the Hobbit, (possibly because it's geared towards a younger age group), but LOTR makes me want to tear my hair out. Does Tolkein really need five pages to describe a rock? I just have The Return of the King and The Silmarillion left, but I'm on the fence about finishing this series. This is one case where the movies are better.

Harry Potter - Still haven't finished book 5. I might bump this up on the list for comfort reading.

I'm technically watching Underground, Sense8, Orphan Black and Doctor Who right now, but school takes up most of my free time. It looks like I'm going to be dropping/Netflixing some shows.

Keeping
Jane the Virgin
The Flash
Izombie
Agents of Shield
Legends of Tomorrow

On the Fence
Supergirl
Gotham
How to Get Away With Murder
Vikings

Summer Shows
American Gods
Game of Thrones


I'm not a fan of the traditional broadcast way of airing shows episode by episode. I like to have entire seasons dumped on the internet, available for me to watch when I have the time. For example, I've been wanting to see The Americans for some time, but I know there are four seasons on Amazon patiently waiting for me.

One of the few things I dislike on AO3 is how there’s no “without” option in their filters bar, because the tags for rarer pairings are usually always filled with a hundred other ships, too, but someone on twitter showed me how to do it manually the other week, and I thought I’d share.

Also, while I'm here: I posted this fic today.

[personal profile] avamclean
I’d hoped to get started back up on [community profile] tamingthemuse  this week. The community had switched to Dreamwidth after the whole LJ user agreement fiasco, but it hasn’t been updated since the middle of August. I was looking forward to the structure of the community even if the words sometimes confounded me.

So I’m going to attempt to challenge myself. I located a random word generator (via a handy-dandy Google search) and it provided me with these 12 words. Over the next 12 weeks I’m going to tackle one a week and write story/scene/chapter inspired by these words. I’m going to go in the order the words were presented to me (no skipping).

Please feel free to join in my madness.

Hello, I'm [archiveofourown.org profile] kadma. Thanks in advance for writing/creating for me! Below, you'll find a list of my general likes and do not wants, followed by a short paragraph per fandom of prompts / suggestions, all of which are optional.
 
General Likes:
  • PWP / smut
  • feelings / introspection
  • missing scenes / codas
  • in-character dialog makes my heart race

Do-Not-Wants:
  • het or m/m, even minor/background (unless present in canon)
  • illegal drugs (inc. marijuana)
  • animal abuse / death
  • alpha / beta / omega and bestiality
  • bodily fluids (kink and non-kink)
  • pregnancy & kid-fic
  • first person POV
  • out of character characters
  • crossovers

REQUESTS
 
World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE)
  • Alicia Fox
  • Asuka
  • Bayley
  • Charlotte Flair
  • Naomi Knight
  • Sasha Banks
Trick: AUs! AUs all day. Witchcraft, Vampires & Werewolves, Generic Slasher Movie, etc. These characters are so vibrant that they'd fit perfectly into all manner of occult alternate universes, and I'd love to see how you incorporate a shippy dynamic into your story. Of course, there's the dark route of Cultists, Human Sacrifice, Zombie Apocaplypse, etc. Go wild! An alternative is dealing with real-life horror stories: Alicia's struggle with mental illnesses & the way she's treated by others, Sasha succumbing to injury during a pivotal time in her career, Charlotte forever trying to step outside her father's shadow, etc.
 
Treat: Anything... femslash and domestic... would be a treat to me...! ;)
 
H2O: Just Add Water
  • Bella Hartley
  • Charlotte Watsford
  • Cleo Sertori
  • Emma Gilbert
  • Miriam Kent
  • Rikki Chadwick 
Trick: I'd love to see a darker take on a full-moon; perhaps one of the mermaids accidentally hurts someone close to them and has to deal with the consequences, or perhaps Charlotte discovers a way to utilise the full moon to her advantage in a twisted way. An alternate universe where the girls are another supernatural creature instead of mermaids could be interesting too!
 
Treat: I'd love to see a friends-to-lovers relationship with any of the protagonists. As for Miriam and Charlotte, they could both use some new friends... in each other? Perhaps they kept in touch when Charlotte left.
 
Stardew Valley
  • Abigail
  • Emily
  • Haley
  • Leah
  • Maru
  • Penny
  • Sandy 
Trick: While researching the occult, Abigail accidentally summons something... scary. Haley asks her sister (jokingly!) for a love potion because she's got a crush, and Emily, in all seriousness, gives her a cute little vial. Does Haley use it, and if so, what happens next?
 
Treat: Maru and Penny try their hands at pumpkin carving for the first time -- how does that go? Leah almost burns down her cottage trying to make a Halloween-themed sculpture: who helps her clean up? Sandy visits Pelican Town one Halloween.
 
As you can see, I'm a huge fan of femslash! Hopefully, these prompts gave you an idea of what sort of stuff I like. Oh, and happy Halloween! <3

One of the jobs at the moment is checking for hedgehogs/random cats before releasing the hounds into the garden......

I opened the door, and discovered the patio covered in blood and bits of something else - five minutes of poking, I discovered that the bits were the remnants of worms (I was concerned I had somehow missed the dogs up to something earlier....though how I would have missed THAT I have no idea but I honestly did not think worms bleed? I've never seen a worm bleed, but apparently, they have red blood, go figure o.o)

Apparently the hedgehog decided to massacre 18 worms on the patio, mere feet away from the unlocked cat flap......which given the crazed charge around the garden by the hounds, was at least partly witnessed by them *face palms*

Break of Day

 
Tears finally drying on her face, Sabine rests her cheek against the pillow.

Pale morning light falls through the shuttered windows. She takes a shaky breath. The scent in the air reminds her of summer rain--wet grass and pine needles, and beneath it, Andre's earthy fragrance.

He lies behind her, warm and solid, his arm holding her close. His thumb brushes gently against her wrist, steady and patient, each stroke easing the grief of her memories. It has been too long since anyone held her like this.

She turns to look at him. "I'm glad that you are here."
