Fashion Friday :: YARA QUEEN

20 Jan

yara-greyjoy-will-face-opposition-to-her

On this day of great upset, let us look instead to a beautiful vengeful queer queen surrounded by and loving on other beautiful vengeful queer queens for guidance and inspiration. Yara (Gemma Whelan) forever.

(I like that picture for the aesthetic value. Most Iron Islands stuff is so drab. That’s practically Goth.)

versatile

Keeping with the Goth thing, then, I am using black because Yara… has always been wearing the same shit and blue and brown only go so far. Also, look at this it is so very her. Versatile Vixen Cape, ModCloth.

But of course. She’s one of us now. Stick it to the Flannel Top in Blue, ModCloth.

Whimsy Wednesday :: in which there are so many unnecessary quotes.

18 Jan

“The prince already has the other two. This is just needlessly cruel.” Same? Zoinks.

A containment module? What the fuck?

“…to make up for my failure,” Venus murmurs, holding a sobbing Sailor Moon in her arms very heterosexually.

“Jupiter, Mercury, and Mars, they’re all alive, I’m sure of it,” Mamoru says heatedly. Uh bud. Where have you even been?

Oh it’s gay li’l Momo here to befriend Chibi-usa!

Demande wants to showboat. Saphir is too practical. Demande wants the queen’s corpse. (…to do what with? I seem to recall original anime Demande being a creeper in the biggest way.)

“I regret what happened to your sisters” I regret it too. I regret it a lot.

Gay li’l Momo literally wasn’t even in it? What was the point of that?

A DVD about psychic channeling starring… Calaveras.

“I have a bad feeling about this.”

Calaveras’ boobs are working in a way that boobs do not work.

“These aliens, they’re beginning to sound less like invaders and more like a cult.”

Oh, it’s one of the girls from Rei’s spoopy Ghostbuster circle? Goodness.

HELLO NOPE MAMORU IS SUMMONING THE GHOSTS OF THE FOUR KINGS TO TELL HIM WHAT IS GOING WRONG WITH THE MALEFIC BLACK CRYSTAL GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE FOUR KINGS GET OUT I AM NOT HERE FOR THIS

“You were not reincarnated by accident” ok then

HOLY SHIT CALAVERAS’ GIANT SPIRIT CHANNELING RALLY IS HER………… SITTING IN A CHAIR AND HYPNOTIZING A CROWD WITH THE LITERAL LYRICS FROM HAIR

To wit, quoth “Let the Sunshine In/The Flesh Failures” better known as “Aquarius”: “No more falsehoods or derisions, golden living dreams of visions. Mystic crystal revelation and the mind’s true liberation”

“You cannot kill what is already dead”

“I’ve been hit. That doesn’t happen a lot.”

TUXEDO LOVE SMOKING BOMBER ???? is that what he just said?

No no I checked. Tuxedo La Smoking Bomber. The “Love” part was the part I wasn’t confused about. So what the fuck.

THERE HAVE BEEN THREE STAR WARS QUOTES IN THIS ONE EPISODE WHAT

Sundry Sunday :: on adulthood (in limerick)

15 Jan

Sometimes all you can do is try
Even though you don’t really know why
There’s things you must do
Mysterious but true
Responsibility’s a lie.

Fashion Friday :: crazy murder queen is finally here.

13 Jan

So Cersei (Lena Headey) has always been crazy and always been implicitly responsible for murdering, but Feast for Crows Cersei is finally here and once again, I am elated.

Things in Print Thursday :: a YA synopsis generator template

12 Jan

So in my last year’s travels through Goodreads and in my intermittent travels through YA, I’ve learned that the summaries of YA novels, much like the summaries of romance novels, are fairly formulaic. Being the overachieving weirdo I am, I decided to make a random generator based on this premise.

This will be an ongoing project, using the code listed here, but I’m going to get it started with the first of several hollow outlines tonight so we can start working to fill in the blanks.

[girl’s name] has a [adjective] life – [familial anecdote], [academic anecdote], [personal anecdote]. She even [unlikely anecdote]. Everything is going [adverb] – that is, until [boy’s name] enters her life. After [way of meeting], the two are initially [adjective] about each other, but after a [adjective] [experience] and some input from their [type of person] [girl’s name], [boy’s name], and [ambiguous name], the two will have to [activity], and it could change [noun].

Whimsy Wednesday :: in which heterosexuality is bad and plot development doesn’t exist.

11 Jan

The fuckery continues, presumably.

This just in: Chibi-usa cares more about her Luna-P doll than Usagi or the fact that Usagi’s friends are missing.

Also: LUNA-P IS TERRIFYING

Why the fuck are they blushing

Also like. From a storytelling standpoint. They are already at the season endgame and it is only 3 episodes in. so what the fuck.

“I just caught a summer cold” if it’s summer shouldn’t they be on vacation?

Also like. All of this is just an endless parade of why. I don’t even know.

Also. Minako stands right in front of the Sailor V poster and nobody goes “oh yeah that’s weird.”

“So now you feel better” why the fuck should she two of her girlfriends are still kidnapped into space of course they’re not fucking all right they’re kidnapped into space.

Every single glasses-wearer in this canon has polycarbonate lenses.

“Don’t make me beg” don’t make me kinkshame you Tsukino-papa.

“As soon as I touched her I had a vision” and you Mamo-chan just stop everything

“I sense that there is no need to be hasty” what are you, an Ent

Petz is literally no fun without her misandry.

Why are we wasting time tangenting on a random boy?

This dude touched Makoto even after she said she gets “staticky” when she’s not feeling well and got shocked. Dumbass.

This dude looks like Motoki but younger and stupider.

“In other news, more mysterious crop circles” are you shitting me.

Also, here’s something. Are laws about independence of minors different in Japan? Because. Mako is 14 and lives in an apartment alone with her parents’ inheritance.

“I can’t lie to you when you look at me like that.” Mako stop

HETEROSEXUALITY IS BAD

Okay but how do you know this fool is not a puppet of the Black Moon????????

Why is he swearing to protect her do they even know each other beyond a passing acquaintance? Who is this fool and where did he come from?

Ok so the original series is set in the 90s/earlier and presumably this one is too if it’s closer to the manga~ but Mako has an LCD flatscreen television. It’s barely plausible that she would have one of those living by herself on inheritance money in the present day but in the 90s/earlier?

“[Jupiter] was a droid” ………what

“I’ll fill you with regret, it’ll leave you numb”

FLOWER HURRICANE

Another thing that is annoying me about Crystal is that it isn’t actually making the girls discovering they have new abilities a thing. They just suddenly have new attacks and shrug.

I still do not appreciate the Spectre Sisters’ demotion to little-bad. Even if it is truer to the manga.

Superlative Monday :: the 2017 Golden Globes and how I feel about them

9 Jan

I once did this and then said I never would again. Well, my level of giving a damn has drastically been reduced since that point years ago, and Hidden Figures was more important than “here are some famous people getting their egos (and other things) stroked.”

I did not watch this. I’ve been seeing a variety of mainly disastrous outfits on the internet, but here’s my opinion of the result list.

Literally the only winning thing I saw was Zootopia.

Congratulations Moonlight, Viola Davis, Tracee Ellis Ross, Donald Glover and Atlanta. Give Mahershala Ali an award. Also Loving. I have not actually seen any of these things but I hear very good things and also want to support them more than La La Land which… aggravates the musical theatre snob in me. And the snob-snob.
