Since my previous post was on newer music (and it is a very boring rainy monday) here some top notch ‘old’ postpunk, synth, goth artists you might like. It is a true shame how most of these never crossed the border back then.
Personal favorites in bold.
so, twelfth grade (or whatever) is coming to an end soon, which is very sad, but there’s GOOD NEWS folks because there are plenty of other webseries out there for you to watch and write meta and fanfiction etc. about, mainly:
@theadventuresofjamiewatson aka tajwash which you’ll DEFINITELY be interested in because eliot aka sebastian stars in the second season as stanley hopkins and everybody loves him. also, there is lots of gay (jamie watson is bi and sherlock holmes is aroace) and sherlock quotes twelfth night several times, you’ll love it. first season is vlog-style, second season is partially tv-style (second season is better), lots of material to watch and relies less on an overarching plot so you can skip around a bit and find your fave sherlock holmes story if you want.
@thegreytarmacroad which completes the TRILOGY of @parafable and is an adaptation of the wizard of oz with lots of gr8 characters and ALSO lots of gay and it takes place in ENGLAND which is funny to me because it’s an american book, meanwhile the rest of us are adapting british books in america ANYWAY give it a go. it maybe technically exists in the same universe as tajwash (and a few other webseries) because two characters have asked each other q&a questions. it’s still airing now (and will be for a while) so you can catch up and then experience some of that anticipation.
@bgpwebseries aka The Blair Goddess Project, which is based off greek myth but not any specific myth because it’s about a new goddess exiled to earth who must learn the true meaning of friendship and if you watch tajwash (see above) you’ll recognize like every other actor in it because they were filmed at the same school and one of the main characters is a genderfluid god who is changes appearances so is played by like ten different wonderful actors and there are fun effects because Blair the goddess does magic. it’s partially vlog-style and takes a bit to really get into the plot but the episodes are quick and easy to watch.
i'm just going to send you the same web series back: unups, tgtr, nmtd, 12gw
STRAP IN KIDS
my all-time ultimate fave character: frick i do. not. know. i love all the women???? (Erica has a special place in my heart bc she’s jewish and good and makes stupid jokes + she’s autistic and nonbinary I dont make the FREAKIN RULES)
a character I didn’t used to like but now do: Senna, mostly cos she attacked Gemma when she first showed up but damn if she hasn’t been added to the autistic forever girl list i love her
a character I used to like but now don’t: no one, really. Everyone set up to be good is good so far
a character I’m indifferent about: Alistair probably. The thing is this is Parafable we are talking about (and his actor is nb), and I’m pretty sure he’s going to get some redemption stuff later on but rn i am hmmm. Also Mrs Grey who i’m mainly just sus of.
a character who deserved better: i was gonna say senna but she ended up getting crowned leader lmao. Probably gem but just bc we didn’t get enough time after the Big Climactic Scenes
a ship I’ve never been able to get into: zero all the canon/hinted at ships are good ones and i’m into them
a ship I’ve never been able to get over: gemathaaaaaaa (also briar rose is like the most Iconic lesbian pining shit i’ve ever seen tbh)
a cute, low-key ship: jake/wally (bc wally/daphne is not lowkey, it’s beautiful and highkey and i love it)
an unpopular ship but I still enjoyed it: ? Megan/anyone lmao she’s a gay i’ve already decided
a ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened:
early on ppl were talking alistair/agatha and some part of me feels like if she hadn’t been gay/the fandom had been bigger ppl might still be (no tea no shade to those who assumed, y’all’d been trained into it by lesser shows)
my favourite storyline/moment: … when those girls held hands and saved the world/any time wally and agatha had a Good Sibling Moment
a storyline that never should have been written: none i mean things made me sad (daphne’s ex being shitty) but like… they were supposed to and not in a malicious way.
my first thoughts on the show: im hype for this angry girl
my thoughts now: IM HYPE FOR ALL THESE GIRLS (and these two soft boys) (and this nerdy nonbinary) give me M O R E
The Grey Tarmac Road
my all-time ultimate fave character: Nimmie Tree, oft mentioned autistic princess of my heart (can you believe we have a canon autistic woman of colour in this the year of our lord 2017 and she’s treated well by the narrative???)
a character I didn’t used to like but now do: Ozma although I lowkey liked her from the start because coded lesbian characters have ruined attractive female villains for me forever Also like, Trudy’s mum? Can you believe she got character development even tho she was never even freakin on screen what the heck.
a character I used to like but now don’t: i don’t think there’s anyone. The wizard’s not very good at being an adult but i didn’t start off liking him so
a character I’m indifferent about: don’t think anyone fits here
a character who deserved better: They were all treated well but Nimmie’s backstory is so rough and I’m glad baby girl gets a happy ever after
a ship I’ve never been able to get into: zero
a ship I’ve never been able to get over: trudy/nimmie what a goooood
a cute, low-key ship: omar/adam
an unpopular ship but I still enjoyed it: boqemma are great and good. coreone are cute as. Also like I don’t Ship It i guess but it’s good that lin and leone happened? yknow?
a ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened: shrug
my favourite storyline/moment: … The entirety of Trudy’s stay at west was really well done, and the arguments in the show were really good. AND EVERY TIME NIMMIE AND OMAR HAD A GOOD SIBLING MOMENT. Also Leone’s reunion with gideon dang!!
a storyline that never should have been written: Zero I kinda wish there’d been more on the mental health stuff, like saying on camera what cyrus was diagnosed with etc
my first thoughts: ok i will watch this thing ingrid made it seems nice
my thoughts now: this show… owns me and will forever…….

a ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened: hero/john why did it exist why
my favourite storyline/moment: the sleepover, and meg hitting robbie in the face
a storyline that never should have been written: bleerrgh or whatever it was called.
my first thoughts: ooh another one and about teenagers and they swear nice

my all-time ultimate fave character: HMMMMM I WONDER tammi belcik, liv close second
a character I didn’t used to like but now do: vic, curt and drew, started as them problematic boyos
a character I used to like but now don’t: shrug

a ship I’ve never been able to get over: liviola, tammaria
a cute, low-key ship: oren/drew, viccurt
an unpopular ship but I still enjoyed it:
a ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened: shrug
my favourite storyline/moment: everything liv ever did ever esp comparing the first and last episodes i love her and tammi in sunglasses
a storyline that never should have been written: none like fuck the malcolm in the dark scene was upsetting but idk how you’d do that like, better.
my first thoughts: oooooh the person who did laii is doing a thing based on 12th night, something with an almost canon trans character in…….
my thoughts now: my good show, my safe haven, creator of my forever girl tammi belcik, god bless.
Or the FAL PARA. Whichever you prefer. The FN FAL is one of the most famous weapons of all time. The “Right Arm of the Free World”, it was the Western counterpart to the Soviet AK-47 during the Cold War. The FAL was the benchmark NATO battle rifle. Using the same 7.62x51mm round as the M14, it was a very hard hitter.
The FAL OSW, or SA58, or FAL PARA or ParaFAL, was a shorter variant of the rifle with a folding stock and shorter barrel designed to be lighter and more portable than the original full-length FAL. It still used the 7.62x51mm NATO standard round, and kicked like a mule.
Nexon released the ParaFAL during the Black Friday 2011 event, and it has been very rare in game. Not very many players use the ParaFAL. When I first picked it off a dead body, I noted its relatively low recoil, which was not true to its real-life counterpart. Also not true to the real FAL was that it only had moderate damage. The weapon handled like many other assault rifles, but had less spread and was pretty accurate in full-automatic firing. I would recommend this weapon to those who are proficient in aiming. Close-quarters gunfights, in which everyone is at each others’ throats, are where the ParaFAL really shines.
