Summary: An adaptation of the movie “The Brothers Bloom” – Blaine and Cooper are brothers and con artists, committing crimes worldwide with explosives expert Santana in tow. But Blaine wants out of the life, while Cooper wants to pull off one last con – and for his mark, he’s selected reclusive automotive heir Kurt Hummel. With Coop’s promise to finally let him go in hand, Blaine sets the hook and reels Kurt into a madcap global adventure in lies, violence, death…and love.

Tropes/Genre: con artist!Blaine, wealthy!Kurt, AU, future!fic, angst, romance, Cooper Anderson

Lynne’s review: It’s all told from Blaine’s POV. There’s so much going on here, take your time reading this to keep up. Very interesting version of Kurt, a completely different Klaine relationship. I quite enjoyed this one.

seeing Beauty and the Beast in hyper-realistic CGI has forced me to re-evaluate the entire concept of the movie. Like the whole “talking furniture” thing was adorable & COOL in animated-form, but in reality it’s like a fuckin horror movie. You’re trapped in a place where cups have EYES and literally anything could’ve been an ex-person. That spoon you just licked clean? A person. That chair you’ve been sitting on? Practically someone’s LAP. That toilet in your bathroom? Oh-ho-hooo bOY DO I HAVE SOME NEWS FOR YOU.

The new film Arrival is based on a 1998 short story by Ted Chiang, a soft-spoken, 49-year-old technical writer based in Seattle. Every few years, Chiang comes out with a new short story that sweeps science fiction awards, including the Hugo and Nebula. But he’s only published 15 short stories since 1990.

“Fiction writing is very hard for me and I’m a very slow writer,” Chiang admits. “I don’t get that many ideas for stories. … And I like to take my time when I do get an idea for a story.”

‘Arrival’ Author’s Approach To Science Fiction? Slow, Steady And Successful


You know how every book lover watches the movie adaption of their favourite book series and feels dissatisfied? How what we really want is not a movie, but a miniseries of episodes, at least one per book, that follows the story to the letter and doesn’t leave out any of our favourite parts? Well, thank Neil Patrick Harris because NETFLIX DID THE THING.

A Series of Unfortunate Events -  Please please please go watch and share this because it is incredible and needs to be seen. It redeems everything that went wrong with that terrible Jim Carrey movie…

Anyway. From one excited book lover to another:
