Ok trying to get back into daily updating. Today wasn’t too great eating wise, and no exercise, and I’ve got a headache now. I think I forgot to take my meds today, but it’s too late to take them now. McDonald’s for breakfast, waffles PB and a banana for lunch, pot roast with carrots and mashed potatoes for dinner. And I ate too many potatoes.
I watched Heathers, the musical yesterday and the movie today. I’m not big on 80s movies for the most part, so I much preferred the musical. Ok I’m going to go lay down now.
rules: tag nine people you want to get to know better!
relationship status: well I never!
favorite color: Orange! It’s just my thing. Not like for clothes or anything, I don’t think I look too great in bright colours, but I still love it so much.
lipstick or chapstick: chapstick, my lips would have fallen off my face by now if it didn’t exist.
last song i listened to: Who’s With Me - Ubiquitous Synergy Seeker
last movie i watched: Yesterday was the 40th anniversary of the movie ‘Slap Shot’. I don’t watch a ton of movies, and I’m not going to say Slap Shot is indicative of my taste, but it’s the last movie I watched.
top 3 tv shows: uhhhh, if I’m throwing Anime in there Gintama 100% fave forever and One Piece as that one show I’ve been following since I was a lot younger. For live action I loved White Collar so much and that was actually a recommendation from Victoria who tagged me so thanks again, but I’m going to have to fight you over my love of TNG.
top 3 characters: Roxas, Riku, and Aqua… I mean, what? But actually, Roxas is my love. I also want to add Morrigan (from DA) to that list, and Twenty-Fifth Baam from the webtoon Tower of God (the greatest thing I’ve ever read btw the most I could recommend any comic)
top 3 ships: HA! What…? I guess Roxas + Xion mostly. Other than that I (friend)ship a lot of people so I don’t think that counts all that much. I ship Jacob from Mass Effect with a better character writer to do him justice if that counts too. I have a couple other ships but mostly in really small stories that don’t have a real following so I doubt listing them here will do anything for anyone. Oh and LadyNoir, I got 3 now… sort of… technically.
books i’m currently reading: My manga + comics list is… extremely long… Putting a list that long is likely bad form so I’ll abstain.
I ACTUALLY THOUGHT OF THIS WHEN I WATCHED THE MOVIE YESTERDAY BUT J DIDNT SAY ANYTHING TO @imagine-ffxv CAUSE SHE ALREADY HATED ME ENOUGH FOR LIKING THE BEE MOVIE AND LAUGHING AT ALL OF THEIR JOKES FOWJCOEKG IM FUCKING GONE AHFJSNHAAHHAA
- correction: I somehow forced the movie on my friends yesterday (and they love me all the more for making them discover this gem).
And WOW, Moftiss are SO pulling a Princess Bride on their audience! Right now, most viewer are basically like the kid who is so upset at his grandpa for turning the story into sh*t - the mean prince is seemingly about to win, true love won’t save the day, Buttercup & Wesley won’t be reunited nor triumph, all this build-up about true love was apparently for nothing… The kid is mad at his grandpa for even beginning the story in the first place, telling him “you are wrong, you must be! It can’t be”, “why were you even telling me this story?!”.
The grandpa (bless Peter Falk btw, I love him) keeps reading the book and we realise a few minutes later all these tragic events were all Buttercup’s nightmare (Buttercup = John, imo: he’s Sherlock’s “damsel in distress”, who’s gotten engaged at a bad person when he thought Sherlock was dead).
When Buttercup wakes up, we hear the kid triumphantly claiming “I knew it! I knew it was wrong!” and the grandpa grumpily replies “Yes, you’re very smart. Now, shut up” before resuming the story.
Moftiss are making the audience mad on purpose, so they root for the real story: true love will save the day.
Series 4 is probably a sort of nightmare - mixing bits of reality with intense fear & insecurities => in reality, events will almost happen like that… but the end changes everything. Wesley/Sherlock & Buttercup/John will be reunited and kiss before the setting sun; true love prevails and saves everyone.
