Shitifying: what a wonderful fucking word. I can't believe it's taken me this long for someone to fling it in my general direction. I learned it from Black Mirror 2.03 and it's great. I intend to integrate it into my vocabulary soon. It was marvellous enough to make me post, so there's that.
Vampire Diaries: is it just me or does this whole season seem like they've been stuck in the Phoenix Stone the entire time and it's all one big convoluted hell world and someone's going to wake up in the shower like Bobby in Dallas? If not that: then convoluted as fuck, Vampire Diaries. Convoluted as fuck.
Banshee: I can't believe you're gone, show of my heart. I can't believe you're gone. You had the most unsafe sex, the sexiest violence, the best bad guys, the most ridiculous set-up, the best Amish drama, and the most beautiful, saddest, politest, gentlest, teddy-bearest, most do-goodest ex-neo-nazi I've ever seen. He even had a teddy-bear name. Bunker. I hope your next life-choice is some serious tattoo removal. Still not sure how you managed to officially become a cop with all that visible nazi ink but haha BANSHEE. I am so very sad that Job and Sugar didn't cement their relationship but never have I seen such unspoken declarations of love and devotion as I have in that last episode.
Vikings continues to be amazing and I love Ragnar's Deadpool-like ability to recover from any illness/injury/addiction, even if it takes him a while. Greatly looking forward to next season.
Americans: always better than I remember it to be and sucks me in every time. I find the promo pictures of them and the DVD covers laughably awful, though. It's like they're there getting hot about each other over guns and dressing up, and she's happy to drape herself all over him and be slutty with her gun. THAT'S NOT THE SHOW, PEOPLE. But it continues to be complicated and heartbreaking and clever and ever-so-slightly ridiculous, considering who their neighbour is and what they keep getting away with.
I watched Star Wars. It was incredibly Star Warsy but in the best possible way. Way better than the prequels. Will awaken your inner 7 year old. Do recommend. (Leia's face and legs didn't move once the whole time. I think she is 75% botox 5% makeup 20% hair.)
I watched Civil War. It was marvellous but goddamn some of those people need to address their decision making processes, stat. I have been reading tonnnnnes of Bucky/Steve fic, mostly to address that TERRIBLE DECISION MAKING PROCESS in the post credits scene.
I watched Superman vs Batman. It was depressing and
every last goddamn one of those people need to address their decision making processes, stat.
I am STILL editing my super-long A Little Bit of History Repeating but progress is being made and hopefully it won't be (insert some laughably inaccurate and far too short time period here) before I have it ready for posting on AO3 in its entirety.Crossposted: http://nomelon.dreamwidth.org/253233.html
