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. :)

» The surgery went well and after recuperating at the parents' place for a while, I'm heading home tomorrow. My blood results were a bit funky but I feel alright, so hopefully that's just normal post-surgery funkiness and they'll be back to normal when we do another check on the 13th. Especially seeing as I have a plane ticket for the 16th, meep. (But mostly because I'd like my liver to be okay.)

» If I feel well on Wednesday I might go see Iron Man 3. EXCITING. (Downside: it's a 3D showing and my 2D Glasses won't reach me in time.) Now I just need to somehow stay unspoiled until then. Be nice, Tumblr.

» Psych is making me wibbly. 707 onwards. )

» Supernatural is making me flaily. 820 Pac-Man Fever. )

» Everything is Elementary and nothing hurts. That's literally all I got. I'm completely besotted with that show, and this wait for new episodes is torture.

» And now I shall continue getting absolutely nothing done. I had plans! Beautiful plans progressing fannish projects! But this laptop is sucking the productivity right out of me. I just can't seem to establish a workflow that works for me. All I've one for the past two weeks is watch my shows, read some fic, cook meals, and play Candy Crush. :/

Snow It snowed a few days ago and then again all day yesterday. Everything is white and beautiful and the birdhouse on my balcony is seeing a lot of action. My love for snow is great and I couldn't be happier.

Merlin I gather one of the creators more or less confirmed Arthur and Merlin's epic gay love for each other by way of DVD commentary? Squee! Not that this makes up for years of heartache, but. That's really very nice. :D

Haven One day I will devote an entire entry to telling you how much I love that show and my OT3 and the cast, and you won't know what hit you for all the squee and capslock. This is my advance apology.

Lost Girl My silly guilty pleasure show is back! Oh Kenzi, how I have missed you. She's adorable to the max. ♥ So far I like the new addition to the cast and even Lauren seems to be growing on me, miracle of miracles.

Fringe RIP, show. I remember how it took me some time to get into at the beginning but I stuck with it and then it got really good. It hasn't quite kept up that level of awesome but Fringe has always been a good time in one way or another, and I'll miss all the characters. I can only hope Anna Torv gets another show because she's gorgeous and I'd miss her face, and smile, and hair, especially when it's dyed red, just saying.

Last Resort I can't even tell you how nervous I am about the finale this week. They canceled this show early on but I have no idea if they got to end things properly or if we're going to be left hanging. All I know is that it's going to be intense either way, meep. My body isn't ready.

Health My health woes are still unresolved and it's getting to me. If you have some good thoughts to spare I'd appreciate it.

» I promised my RPF Big Bangers that I would find cheerleaders for eeeveryone but one of them is still without. Anyone have some time on their hands to support a fledgling Bradley/Colin writer? The post is here. I would be eternally grateful.

» Weekends. I wake up with so much energy and stuff swirling about in my head. I could clean! I could put together some recs! I could write a guide on how to make email notifications of AO3 uploads and Pinboard bookmarks happen! And how to have them file into sub-inboxes so they don't clutter up your GMail! (Btw, would anyone be interested in that, or is that old news?) YEAH. ...and then I have breakfast and catch up on TV (or ahem, All the Chris Evans Movies) and make lunch and read some fic and... oh, day over. CUE FEELINGS OF FAILURE AND DOOM. :/

» Chris Evans. Can we talk about Chris Evans? I like how clothes have a tendency not to stay on him.

Yup. (NSFW-ish) )

Three of his movies that I can heartily recommend: Push, The Losers, and What's Your Number. I'm a little bit in love with all three. Push and The Losers are action movies. (I just watched the latter for the first time and oh man, so good.) What's Your Number is a romantic comedy and Chris is unbearably cute in it with or without clothes on.

And don't get me started on the photoshoots. I guess he used to model? I'm uh, trying not to encourage this awful crush by watching too many interviews. GAAAH. Be cool, self, be cool.

» Dan, a YouTuber, uploaded this wonderful video titled I Will Go Down With This Ship which discusses fandom and shipping. It's accurate and hilarious and, I mean, he's pretty awesome. A teaser on Tumblr in the form of gifs.

I'm going to end this weekend by embracing the suck and reading more Avengers fic. Or maybe rotrude's Viking's Slave which has been calling my name since it was posted. Decisions, decisions.

» It's the last day of a glorious four-day weekend which was mostly spent lazing around, catching up on tv stuffs (Game of Thrones, Awake, Teen Wolf), reading fic (Glomp Fest, miniBANG, and some other things to my To Read list), and eating ice cream sandwiches (all gone now, no more brain freeze, whew).

» The miniBANG we hosted at [livejournal.com profile] merlinbb_rpf has started posting! So if you're into Merlin RPF, head over there and check that out. :D As for the Big Bang, sign-ups are just around the corner (May 7th!) and Gwyn is currently working on the pimp graphics while I prep the FAQ and How To and whatnot. With the show most likely ending this year it's probably going to be the last round. Here's hoping we go out with bang. (I'm so ashamed of that pun.)

» Brief comment about Supernatural 7.20. )

» Yep, still in love with the spoiler cut.

» omg you guise, Teen Wolf. I watched all 12 episodes of season one in under 24 hours. NO REGRETS. That show is absolutely ridiculous and I love it. It's a bit confusing to my shipping heart because I kind of liked all the characters but somehow didn't immediately have an OTP. I always have an OTP! Five seconds in! Whaaat. I think I'm sort of flirting with Derek/Stiles, though? So uh, if you have any recs for that, or could point me into the direction of your trusty TW reccer, that would be fab. That reminds me, same counts for Being Human, Hal/Tom. I tuned back in now that they basically re-started with a new cast and loved the season. I've been meaning to check out some Hal/Tom fic, but I'm floundering a bit, not knowing where to start. Any recs or links to reccers would be greatly appreciated. :)

» Bees. I don't mind bees in general, but somehow one mother of a bee made it into my apartment yesterday. And it was pissed. I got so scared I almost killed it, but then I sucked it up and managed to throw it out without harm to either of us. Gah! Gotta remember to check the fly screens for holes.

» As for personal stuff, I'm doing okay. Still dealing with some things but when am I not. Work is alright, about to become a bit quiet when my dad goes on vacation for a couple of weeks. I wish I could go with, could use some of that Serbian quiet right about now, but I don't have anyone I trust to look after the guinea pigs. Oh well. It could be worse, all of it, so I don't want to complain too much.

» Aaand we're done! Aren't you glad. ;)
