Media consumed on my summer vacation (and several days following).

I'm having trouble making words, so these aren't full write-ups or analyses by any means. But. Words on paper.

Media consumed on my summer vacation (and the next couple of days)

1. I reread What Was She Thinking? aka Notes on a Scandal by ZoĆ« Heller. 100% of my feels about this book are summed up with "DO ME BARBARA." My response to the movie, lo these many years ago, was much the same. When I watched it with my ex (no, other ex), she tried to explain to me that Judi Dench's character is a sociopath, but I was like, no, if the younger woman (sic) were REALLY INTO IT then it would be lovely and Barbara would be sane. So there and ♥__♥

So. Barbara Covett. I want her to devour me.

2. I reread Matilda by Roald Dahl. Is it bad that I have way many more thoughts about this than the above? Cos I do. And while I have difficulty seeing anything bad in Barbara Covett, I have way more complicated feelings about Miss Honey.

[cut for being vaguely spoilery and for talking about abuse.]

3. Elizabeth and I saw Joss Whedon's What I Did on My Summer Vacation Much Ado About Nothing. Unsurprisingly, I have more feelings about Joss&family than about the show itself, although it was quite entertaining. Like how Joss has apparently moved on from his obsession with Summer Glau's feet, and opened with a shot of Alexis Denisof's feet.

4. I borrowed War for the Oaks by Emma Bull from Elizabeth. It was entertaining; sanctioned OTP is lovely, but alas there are no malicious/broken/lovely/brilliant female teachers so it would have had to be pretty amazing to compensate for that deficiency.

5. I borrowed a few comic collections from the library. First Ultimate Fantastic Four, hardback collection #4, which collects the strips from God War and Devils and an X-Men crossover. I was hoping to add Fantastic Four to the collection of Marvel characters I know enough to occasionally read fic or comics about, but I accidentally cared more about the secondary characters than the Four in pretty much every arc, so. That's not gonna work out.

6. Then I read Invincible Iron Man trade 2, World's Most Wanted part 1. I had SO MANY FEELS. And then I discovered that my library catalogues these really poorly, so there are 35 items indexed as "V. 2. World's most wanted, bk. 1 -- v. 6. Stark resilient -" including the one I have, so I don't know if they're all actually World's Most Wanted volume 1 or what. Hands. I really want to read more of this. (Tony and Pepper were really added to my collection after seeing Avengers, but this added Maria Hill, so, success.)

Dear Yuletide author,

[Fandoms are Jossverse RPF, Savage Love RPF, Baby-Sitters Club - Ann M Martin, and Princess Diaries - Meg Cabot. The rest is behind a cut because it is so ridiculously long I don't even.]
this is the cut tag )

In conclusion, THANK YOU for writing a story for me. I know I will love it.

Yes, I can see my bff giving me this look that says, really, you want more stress in your life?

But I would really like to be part of fandom again, so I am, very carefully, going to play Yuletide this year. I nommed BSC (duh), Dan Savage RPF (.... I really want fic where the tech-savvy at-risk youth take him to task on various stuff. Or basically anything involving tech-savvy at-risk youth being tech-savvy and awesome), and Jossverse RPF (though I'm less committed to that one) and may decide to request something different, depending.

And I will make the most conservative offer ever (for me. I tend to offer in the 60+ fandom range, so less than 10 would be super-conservative for me.)

I accomplished something super hard this morning, and I think the rest of the day will be devoted to watching tv and baking. Maybe I'll even watch tv that I already own rather than convince myself I need to buy new tv. (I will, though, I think, buy myself a quick breads recipe book, if I can find such a thing.)

I figured out how, of course, the Much Ado ado can help me finish the Jossverse RPF high school AU that stalled out because I couldn't decide what play they were going to put on.

Good ideas make me tingly. *crosses toes that I'll actually be able to write words*

As I'm sure you've heard by now, Joss and his harem got together and made a Shakespearean movie in his spare time.

I don't have words for how much I love my big incestuous cast 'n' crew.

Here're some interviews with Joss, Sean, and Amy.

I was wondering where the "Whedonverse alums react to Sean coming out" fic was. Apparently they decided to write it themselves.

(Whatever, I'm tagging it Joss/Alexis because it is in my head. Love letter to the cast, indeed.)
