semi friends-only

I've made the decision to make this journal semi friends-locked, as recently I've been writing more about myself than before. Most stuff about rl will be locked (if your not my friend you're not missing out on much, I'm just a regular university student, so not much excitement there) but reviews, picspams, graphics, fanfics and fandom rants will be open.

TASM 2 review

hal basic
So I went and saw Spider-Man 2 and it was not very good. I liked a couple of the action scenes (especially the first fight between Peter and Electro) and Peter and Gwen were very cute together. I guess if you like Andrew and/or Emma (a shoutout goes also to Sally Field ofc) it is worth a watch but otherwise it’s a hot mess.

///I tried to avoid spoilers. The only big one I refer to is what happens to Gwen///read moreCollapse )

There's a very well-written review up on comics alliance btw so you can check that out.

look who's back

hal basic
Hi, guys! Just dropping in to say I'm alive and kickin' again xD The past few weeks have been a hot mess at university, so I really wasn't up to updating.

Not much has been happening for me anyway. I had my birthday a few days ago but I didn't have time to celebrate it much yet. I did meet one friend, though, and we chatted some and she gave me a neat present (I'll take a pic later).

Also thanks for the wishes, those of you who wished me! :)

Well I'm 24 now and my priorities are as screwed up as ever xD My goal is to never grow up mentally :P

I'll try to update more regularly from now on as things are a bit less hectic now. We'll see how it goes, though.

small update + meme

So, after a month of classes I am exhausted. Yeah, only a month in. The year off I had made me wean myself off going to class everyday (not that I didn't work in that year but I didn't have to get up so early almost every day).
more complainingCollapse )

I'm just going to keep on trying to survive until Christmas. Wish me luck!

In the mean time have a meme I picked up from miki_moo

- OT3
- Favorite Canon
- Favorite Crack
- Guilty Pleasure
- Pairing I Hate

Some fandoms you can ask about: various Indian movies, figure skating (the only real people fandom I ever went deep into xD), Supernatural, DC and Marvel, tons of manga and anime (but especially Bleach and Gintama, as I have the strongest opinions on them), classical English literature (I had to read tons for British and American literature class, plus I do like quite a bit of it), various computer games xD I'll give you an answer as long as I'd heard about the thing at all xD If I don't know it I'll give you guesses on what I'd ship based on a google search xD

Signal Boost



There is a campaign to message DC comics today and buy the first issue of Cassandra Cain's Batgirl run digitally at Comixology.


If you can't spare the money, that's ok. Just write to DC on Twitter and Facebook. All the details are in the above link.

Who is Cass Cain? Cass Cain is the ex-second Batgirl and currently The Black Bat (the Batman of Hong Kong). The successor of Barbara Gordon (Jim Gordon's daughter - might ring a bell for the people who only know Nolan's stuff). In the recent universe reboot she got completely benched, and even before that her character got some terrible treatment by hack writers.

Why is this NOT okay?
- Cassandra is an awesome and badass character whom young people relate to

- she was the first Batgirl with her own ongoing title which sold consistently well even though she had very little promotion and merchandising and NEVER appeared in animated or live-action adaptations

- she has been voted fan favourite several times in various polls - fans love her and care about her

- being a POC and a woman who had to struggle with a disability she is a great role model for the less privileged, showing that DC comics doesn't care only about cishet white dudes between 18 and 34 and that comics are for everyone

- being the daughter of two villains, trained to be an assassin from her youngest years (and not even having been taught how to speak, only how to kill by her father!) she gives a hopeful message - no matter your upbringing you can still turn your life around and be a good person and even a hero

- she used to be a key member of the Batfamily - she is the adoptive daughter of Bruce Wayne. SHE IS BATMAN'S DAUGHTER.

- And whereas her adoptive brothers (the male Robins) have all appeared in the reboot, some of them in very prominent roles, her and the female Robin (Stephanie Brown, Cassandra's friend and successor - you can be both Robin and Batgirl, it's a long story) have been erased in all possible ways. This is offensive to the fans of those characters and to women in general.

- Batman titles were more female friendly in the mid nineties than they are now! We've had several Gotham based women (not just Cass and Steph) erased or depowered, for them not to overshadow Batman.

-whenever they ask about her fans are answered by the executives with scorn and dismissal - they are trying to discourage us but we won't let them

Buying this archive issue means you care about women and POC in media. Plus you get a good comic in the bargain which may be a good entry point for you :)

RPing at Tumblr

I recently created an RP account at Tumblr. I play DC comics' Starfire. I still have some kinks to work out but I'm ready to interact with characters from any fandom :)

Tumblr is actually surprisingly comfortable for role playing. You might want to give it a try :)

Uratujmy życie Lotki!


Na uratowanie tej klaczy jest czas tylko do 15 września, więc nawet najmniejsze wsparcie finansowe się liczy.

Gintama amvs

So I was browsing youtube for Gintama amvs as I sometimes do... and came across two by my tumblr friend who actually happens to be Polish. I had known about her Gintama fic writing but not her vidding.

One of them is a very touching spin on the joui relationships in the Benizakura arc:

The second is a Takamui vid, which I really loved even though I don't ship it that much. It reminded me how great their episode in Gintama' was.

I hope sn1987a will see this if she hasn't yet ;)
