KLAROLINE REVIEWS EVENT COMING SOON!!!!

Klaroline Reviews Event!!!!

Hey KCers! 

We had a great turnout for our Klaroline Reviews Event originally held and supervised by @supremeuppityone in March. Unfortunately she is busy with prior commitments and wasn’t able to be here for this event planned by me and her. We received a lot of requests to have a repeat event for those who weren’t able to participate in March so here we are now.

SPECIAL MENTION FOR @joey-prue​ , Monica who came up with AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL AND CREATIVE PROMOTIONAL GIFS… A BIG BUCKET OF FLOWERY THANKYOUS TO YOU !!!! YOU ARE SO GENEROUS AND TALENTED, AND I CAN NEVER THANK YOU ENOUGH..<33

 Our latest Klaroline Reviews Event will take place June 14 through June 18.

 We’re working together to encourage more reviews and promote all of the fantastic authors our fandom has to offer. 

Our Klaroline authors will appreciate all of your kind words and encouragement! 


June 14 Day 1: Author reviews and recs list for mutuals — Review any author you choose in whatever format you prefer (tumblr/AO3/FFnet) and consider creating lists of recommendations for your friends. This is a great way to discover new Klaroline stories and authors! 


June 15 Day 2: Celebrating new-to-you authors — Review authors whom you’ve never read before in whatever format you prefer (tumblr/AO3/FFnet).


 June 16 Day 3: Underrated authors — Review authors whose work may not receive the attention they deserve in whatever format you prefer (tumblr/AO3/FFnet). Help spread the word about these hidden gems!


June 17 Day 4: Creative reviews — Put something extra into your reviews today in whatever format you prefer (tumblr/AO3/FFnet). Let the author know your favorite lines, or ask questions about their work, or tell them the things that you enjoy the most about their writing, etc.


June 18 Day 5: Reviewer appreciation — Authors give thanks to their reviewers. Some ideas to consider include posting their top frequent reviewers, writing mini-drabbles dedicated to them, etc.


Throughout the event, please use the tag #klaroline reviews .

We’re looking forward to celebrating our talented Klaroline authors with you! Thank you for joining me! @recklessnesspersonified

Steven Cree announces his kickstarter campaign.

Sam’s like on Instagram. Seems like a familiar couple that I’ve seen before. Maybe it reminds Sam of someone he knows.

Wednesday, March 15

The one year anniversary of the London Fan Event that so many here were able to attend. And the day some of the best interviews were filmed.

Also the 2 year anniversary of the LA Marathon.

#OutlanderFansDoEpicShit

Steven Cree now understands exactly what that means.

Sam tweets his support for Cait and confirms that he is still her biggest cheerleader. The man can’t help himself!

@abreathofsnowandashes notices something that we can’t stop laughing at.

Thursday, March 16

Everyone is heading to South Africa. Looks like Cesar is leaving soon.

And then this happened. Huge thank you to @surana17 for tweeting this to Sam. He NEEDED to see it!

And to top it all off Cait’s Instagram like:

And more twitter banter

Also Cesar and Lauren are in the air and on their way to South Africa! Cannot wait for Fersali!

Eagle eyes @sherrigamblin notices that the inflight entertainment unit appears similar to a photo Sam posted on the weekend of Cait’s birthday trip to Paris. Add it to the pile of receipts.

And hopefully we still have more goodness today and I have to update this…

Why Nerve is amazing

1.) it’s all about the dangers of anonymity on the Internet and how that leads to a feeling of invincibility and a disconnection from the repercussions of your actions

2.) the colors gradually become more neon and striking as the main character becomes more daring.

3.) THE! SOUNDTRACK!

(Sort of a) Acorn Press Acrylic Charm Review

Yoooo~~~~ my acrylic charms came today during a snowstorm and I totally did not expect it XDDD I thought the storm was going to delay it for sure. Kudos to USPS delivery guy (stay warm and stay safe man). It really made my day ヾ(*´∀`*)ノ

Here are the references for my Yuri on Ice and Overwatch characters charm set. I will be selling these at future cons and events. So check out my con schedule if you’re interested in purchasing them! I will probably sell them online for leftovers. I don’t have a store yet (as of 2/9/17) so check back on my tumblr or other social media (or you can message me) for updates!

Also, I find it super funny that overwatch and YOI characters came during a BLIZZARD, COLD and ICY day (no pun intended lol) 

They look super nice thanks to @acornpress ! I would highly recommend them if you are interested in selling acrylic charms for cons/online in the future. This is my first time ordering acrylic charms so take my words with a few grains of salt. Also I’ll be rambling all over the place and spamming run-ons so be aware :P

Arrival (2016)

Directed by Denis Villeneuve

Cinematography by Bradford Young

“Mice and bunnies are more often heroes in kids’ books… I think that’s because mice and bunnies are small and defenseless and need looking out for. In other words, they’re a lot like children. Rats, I think, are more like teenagers. They’re bold and unafraid. They like to explore. They’re eager to try new things. They’re curious. They’re physically tough. Sometimes they make mistakes and get themselves into trouble, but they’re rarely malicious. They have big, strong hearts.”
-Misunderstood: Why The Humble Rat May Be Your Best Pet Ever, Rachel Toor

Silence (2016)

Directed by Martin Scorsese

Cinematography by Rodrigo Prieto

Did I ever tell you guys about how a kid in my class asked my chemistry teacher what’s his stance on gay marriage and he responded with “why don’t you ask my boyfriend” in the sassiest tone bc it was pretty much the best thing ever

Me on my death bed...

Me: Tell my family that I love them

Grandkid: Yes, grandma.

Me: And tell telanu that Truth and Measure is the best novel I’ve ever read.

Grandkid: I think you mean fanfiction, grandma.

Me: Did I fucking stutter?

My Favorite New (ish) Films of 2016 - If I saw it in 2016 and it was less than five years old, it counts for this list.

1. Bone Tomahawk (2015) - ‘Great performances from a terrific cast highlight this terse, tense, slow burn weird western that explodes into Fulci-esque violence by the end.’

2. Dredd (2012) - ‘It’s briskly paced, constantly tense, features disturbing explosions of gore and a simple but propulsive score. And it’s very engaging on a purely visual level, juxtaposing grimy, dystopian greyness with splashes of vivid day-glo color.’

3. The Duke of Burgundy (2014) - ‘A beautifully rendered, twisty, and compelling relationship drama that examines what happens when one half of a couple has intense fetishistic needs and the other half can’t sustain the enthusiasm for it all… Aesthetically, everything here is simply lovely, from the actresses to the costumes to the furniture to the music. Every artistic detail contributes to the melancholy, autumnal fragility of the piece. It’s a haunting, alluring experience.’

4. Green Room (2015) - ‘An unrelentingly tense and carefully constructed thriller… This one boasts strong characters and world-building, shocking gore, and chillingly business-like and indifferent Nazi baddies. Feels way more relevant and important now than it did even six months ago.’

5. The Hateful Eight (2015) - ‘Every time I see a new Tarantino movie, I think ‘this is his masterpiece,’ and this one continues the trend. Even though the movie riffs heavily on The Thing and spaghetti westerns, it feels like the QT movie least about other movies. I’ve always loved his stuff, but this film feels substantive and challenging and disturbing in a way he hasn’t really achieved before.’

6. High-Rise (2015) - ‘…equally cartoonish, surreal, horrifying, and colorful…  undercurrents of eerie, stylish menace help to create what is overall a rather bewitching experience.’

7. Inside Llewyn Davis (2013) - ‘Oscar Isaac is terrific in the title role and the script communicates so much so deftly, allowing us to know Llewyn deeply without ever getting bogged down in exposition. It’s quietly moving and subtly humorous throughout, with lovely music and a great period NYC feel that doesn’t overplay the typical bohemian signifiers.’

8. The Invitation (2015) - ‘one of those movies where you know something terrible is about to happen and anxiety builds and builds until things finally hit the tipping point. The Invitation is an intense, weirdly moving, and physically chilling experience.’

9. The Neon Demon (2016) -  ‘It’s draped in neon and synth music and moves at a crawl before erupting into witchery, cannibalism, and necrophilia in the final act. The movie is more than a bit ridiculous and full of itself, but so is all good artsploitation.’

10. Queen of Earth (2015) - ‘A chilling and subtly stylish examination of grief, privilege, depression, and most interestingly, the way in which friendships can become toxic and competitive over time.’

11. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (2016) - ‘The script takes a sharp look at the Afghan conflict and the complicated sexual politics of the situation, with men and women on both sides of the East/West divide coming under scrutiny. It’s also about what people do to cope with living under extreme conditions, and it’s raunchy, exciting and ultimately rather moving experience on the whole.’

12. The Witch (2015)  - ‘a beautifully shot and superbly acted piece of historical horror… I also like the way the script characterizes religious zealotry as it’s own sort of prison. A gripping and authentic recreation of primitive American folklore.’
