Okay, so whole thing back when September was like PETER, YOU AND OURLIVIA WERE SUPPOSED TO HAVE BABIES, ALTLIVIA IS THE WRONGLIVIA FOR YOU didn't make any sense, because they're from different universes. The only reason Peter got anywhere near Ourlivia is September messed up Walternate's Peter cure.

UNLESS, what September meant was: Henrietta the cortexiphan baby is the only one who can stop the Observers. Henry was normal so he would've been relatively useless.

Life's a bitch so that's what I'll be

Because sometimes I just need to feel righteously angry (and maybe a little bit immature). This is my angry girl playlist.

Note: I started this entry about a year ago, and it's kind of unfinished, but I'm posting it anyway.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is a not-so-guilty pleasure/obsession of mine lately. My friend insisted I play it, and once I started I got hooked. Crazy person he is, he wanted me to play it 30 hours straight, and while I probably could have, it was midterm week. Which was a terrible time to start playing it, really, but I rarely think these things through.

The game hooked me mainly because of 3 reasons.
1. TERRIFIC story.
Every minute you're learning more and more about the world and the backstories of all the characters. Even after 2 playthroughs (LSF[Light Side Female] both times. I tried Darkside, but I just... couldn't. XD Fail, I know) I know there are still things I missed.

2. Journal full of tasks to complete.
The main reason why I couldn't stop playing? I have a serious love for lists. I don't know why. But as you go through the game, you keep unlocking these side quests, and I was so determined to finish them all.
Friend: Just get off the planet already. -_-
Friend: Whatever, you'll just get dark side points.
Me: :{

3. Romance sub-plot(s).
I've had the thought many times while playing various video games that it would be hilarious if you could flirt with NPCs.

I don't know what he's saying, but by god my character would be checking him out. 8D

So the fact that in this game you could actually flirt with the NPCs? GOLD. GOLD TO ME! :D Joking aside, they are each very sweet stories, and partially directing them was a really lovely detail.


Before I go on...

This game has one of the best twists of all time, and trust me when I say you REALLY don't want to be spoiled for it.

Random thoughts during "Schooled"

First, can I say I love how this series feels so much more "real" than Teen Titans, just by the keeping of a timeline and and acknowlegement of the other heroes. Puts it in a world.

Everybody hates Rachel

I'm supposed to be working on my final animation project right now, but somehow I got sidetracked thinking about Glee and got so frustrated that I had to come rant about it. Spoilers up to this week's episode, "Special Education."

This week's episode featured New Directions's second year at Sectionals. It also featured stormy seas for Finn and Rachel, which is a ship I fully do not support, so I'm not exactly against Ryan Murphy being his usual troll self and lying about them being together for the whole season. It also featured pretty much EVERYONE finding a way to hate on Rachel. First Quinn told her she wanted to punch her in the face every time she opens her mouth. Then Santana dropped the bomb that she and Finn slept together last year, and he lied about it to Rachel. Then Mr Schue yelled at her in front of everyone. Way to be pro, teach. Later in the episode, we find out that absolutely everyone in the club knew about Finn and Santana, and no one told Rachel because, according to Santana, nobody in the club actually likes her. Ouch! And the only person to stand up and admit he kinda likes her was Puck of all people.

The only person besides Puck who seemed to be getting along with Rachel this episode was Kurt, who has defected to the friendlier Dalton Academy's Glee club. You'd think that competitive Rachel would be all for cutting ties with the enemy, but in fact they share a few scenes that feel almost tonally wrong for the show, because Whoa, people actually being friends. Rachel dropped a few lines that I feel were really telling about her character, namely that
a) She's being friendly to Kurt now because he isn't competition.
b) That she fantasizes about people finally realizing how great she really was at her funeral. How depressing is that image?
"Wait, Kurt isn't competition? But he's on the opposing team!" you say. Not what she meant. Rachel has consistently received the message that she isn't wanted. People want to punch her in the face when she talks. But when she sings, people listen. They cheer. Kurt was competition for attention within the Glee club. She's obsessive about perfection, but winning isn't really her end goal here. She wants to be loved, and she sees singing as her only pathway to that. Can somebody please just give the girl a hug?
So I'll keep on tryin'
I'm through with lyin'
Just like the sun above
I'll come shinin' through
Oh, yes I'll keep on tryin'
I'm tired of cryin'
I got to find a way

Keep on trying, Rachel <3

Oh, wanted to add: No matter how terrible Santana was, the bitch of the episode award goes to Mercedes. The more Mercedes talks, the more I want to cry for humanity. What happened to your BFF-dom with Quinn? Quinn, who was freaking out because she was having flashbacks to going into labor at Regionals, and you supported her by.... offering to steal her solo. Ah, friendship. What is wrong with this show? o_O More importantly, why can't I stop watching it???


I just like drawing connections. ^^ TF2 is my favorite thing to crossover. Don't judge me! Any Dollhouse ones were imagined before the what-a-tweeest! reveal in Getting Closer. Though that certainly makes them interesting. If any of these inspires you somehow, have a party. XD  Read more...Collapse )

So I'm in 5th grade again.

So recently I found animorphs and practically swallowed a lung in excitement to find that there was an active Animorphs community still around. This summer I plan on re-reading the series. Right now I'm on #7.

This series was such a big part of my childhood. It had a lot of "fandom" firsts for me, before I even really knew there was such a thing as fandom. First OTP (Rachel/Tobias 4eva! :D Though I find I'm gaining interest in Rachel/Marco this time around. Don't worry Tobias, I still love you too!), first fictional crush (Marco! XD <333), and no series ending (book, tv, anything) has ever made me as deeply sad as the last book.

Well, we'll see how this goes.

You probably wouldn't think I was the kind of guy who would cry. Mostly I don't. Mostly I make jokes about things. It's better to laugh than to cry, don't you think?

I do.

Even when the world is scary and sad. Especially when the world is scary and sad. That's when you need to laugh.
