Looking at my journal one might get the impression that the excitement over Captain America 2 killed me, but nope! I'm shipping all the pairings (so. many. pairings), and reading all the fic (♥AO3♥), and fangirling all the Chris Evans actors, and reblogging all the pretty (when I remember to log into Tumblr anyway). I just do it very, very quietly. I mostly tweet these days (under private lock because it's a mix of fandom and personal stuff).

» games Played Dragon Age: Origins. Played Dragon Age 2. Remembered DA:O included all the DLC, played that. Somehow became obsessed with the universe along the way and am now counting the days until Inquisition. So, that happened. /o\ I also played Deus Ex: Human Revolution which was fun (but I used all the cheats because I'm terrible at stealth and have no patience for dying; you see my problem), and the first Portal which was fun until the last level and then upgraded to awesometacular. Oh, oh! And I played Mass Effect 1 which I really, really liked even though the voice actor of male!Shep was hilariously awful. I already own ME2 and ME3 but since the game mechanics are so similar to those of the Dragon Age games I don't want to burn myself out on that before Inquisition comes out. So I'm playing Far Cry 3 right now. I'm not very far in yet but I'm enjoying it so far.

» books After a fantastic start (six books by February!) I hit a snag. Namely Broken Homes, the third part of the Rivers of London series. I don't know what it is, I just can't get into this one. I loved the first two but this book has been sitting on my reading table for months. I need to finish it before starting a new book (them's the rules) but every time I pick it up I just, put it back down after a few pages. I honestly can't tell if it's actually the book, or me. Augh. Somebody chain me down and force me to finish this so I can move on to that Alex Verus novel I've been eyeing.

» television I'm still very much enjoying Teen Wolf. (My secret: don't expect anything to make sense, seriously, just roll with it; don't do fandom or keep up with show news; and don't get invested in any ships. I'm failing at the last one because Malia/Stiles, oh my heart, but that's okay, the first two are the most vital. I basically want to pinch everyone's cheeks, and is it just me or has Derek somehow become super hot this season?) Defiance was really good this season, bit sad that it's already over. I'm also really liking some new shows, Rush (Tom Ellis has never been more attractive), Dominion, and Finding Carter. And there's a new-new show starting soon that utterly charmed me, Forever. The premise reminds me a lot of New Amsterdam, might be a reboot? Anyway, I'll definitely be tuning in. There's more, Ray Donovan, Suits, Witches of East End, ...oh god, and Sleepy Hollow's starting back up again soon, among others. I have no idea how I'm keeping up with all that, gah.

» comics I'm much happier now that I've given up on all that events business. Who needs 'em, bah. Current titles I'm into include Ms. Marvel (so charming!), Hawkeye (I've been having such a soft spot for Clint lately), Captain Marvel (because Carol Danvers, fyeah), Secret Avengers, Daredevil, Deadpool (sometimes I love it, sometimes not so much, currently a lot because they thew him and Clint together and hilarity ensued), Guardians of the Galaxy, Loki: Agent of Asgard (I was the last person to see this coming but this fresh-faced version of Loki is surprisingly fun), aaand I think that's it. I kinda want to try Avengers World (mostly because Clint is really hot in this one, shh) but I'm worried it will crank my frustration with Avengers titles back up to eleven. I also want to try myself at a Spider-Man title. Last time I tried they replaced Peter two issues in which nope, but I hear he's back now? Spidey always made me chuckle in Avengers books so maaaybe it's time to give that another try.

So there. That's what up with me fannishly. Bit of a mouthful but hey, I updated! That's one off the to-do list. ;)

Yes, I somehow find time to real life in between all that. Ahem.

Livejournal says I last updated today, but Livejournal is a filthy liar. Editing to-do lists and fic wips doesn't count, damn it. No, the sad news is that I last updated in July. How.

Nothing much has happened. I'm still watching too many shows, trying to get into Avengers comics, and continue to fail warming up to Tumblr as the new fannish playground (this is so depressing to me I can't even tell you).

In November I spent a long weekend at the sea. Turns out I love the sea, and fresh, salty air, and drinking hot tea on a cold, windy day at the beach. In short, it was fabulous and I need to spend more vacation time away from home.

Around the same time I tentatively took up gaming. It started with Lego's Marvel Heroes, and then the Steam Autumn sale happened and Bioshock Infinite blew my mind, and then the Steam Winter sale happened and I lost two fun weeks to the new Tomb Raider game. :D I'm still playing Marvel Heroes on and off. It's cute enough but I'm bitter that I did the newbie thing and bought it at full price. I had no idea Steam sales were a thing! I'm also playing Skyrim but while the open world thing is amazing, I also find it a little overwhelming. I think linear games are more my thing, at least for now. Frustratingly I'm not warming up to Assassin's Creed as much as I thought I would and am wondering if I should give up on the first game for now and try the second, see if I like it better. My main problem lies with the controls, honestly. I hope they improved those.

I'm also reading books this year. Last year was very much the year of fanfiction and I don't think I read a single book. Not that I'm putting down the fanfiction (pfft) but I already read six books this year and am enjoying my weekend mornings on the sofa. :)

That 31-Day Blog Challenge looks really attractive right now. Three Teen Wolf reaction posts in a row are just suspicious. You'll start thinking I'm actually in the fandom at this rate. :P

Teen Wolf 3.04 )

Okay so more like two gifs and a few paragraphs of flailing, ahem.
