yarning
Friday is the 6 month anniversary of the Women's March, so now I have another calendar deadline for showing at least one version of my current project. (I'm struggling to convince myself that I AM ALLOWED to revise later.) I've spent all day today working on it, and all evening redesigning a crucial piece. There's so much yet to do, but I'm learning so much.

Annnd I just realized I didn't post this earlier. Oops?

Non-existent episodes meme

Invented by [personal profile] lunabee34: Tell me about the episode (or book chapter) that never appeared in one of your fandoms but should have.


White Collar: Neal is knocked unconscious during a case, cue Prohibition-era noir episode with singing, saxophones and threesome subtext, a la Moonlighting's "The Dream Sequence Always Rings Twice."

White Collar: Peter and Neal are captured and held in a confined space. Very confined. El, Mozzie and June work together to rescue them (with Diana and Clinton helping in the background).

Battle Creek: All of season 2.

Agent Carter: All of season 3.

Captain America: A Falcon movie, with the breezy tone of Ant-Man and Spider-Man. Basically, I want (more of) a Sam/Steve romcom. ;-P

Drabbles

I wrote a few drabble treats for the Multifandom Drabble Exchange:

1. Shining how we want - Steve Rogers/Sam Wilson, Shortest fake relationship ever.

2. Back it up and do it again - Neal Caffrey/Clinton Jones, The first time was a ruse.

3. Does it almost feel like you've been here before - time traveller/time traveller, The portal whines alarmingly.


And I've read lots of great ones (there went my morning!), but this is my favourite so far:

Pets by [archiveofourown.org profile] lirin - Neal & Satchmo, How can anybody be exasperated around a dog like this?

Yesterday I finished Dal Ja's Spring with my teacher, and Imaginary Cat, which was a solo watch.

Dal Ja's Spring was charming, slightly dated and, as is the way with noona romances, eventually managed to side-step the heavy pressure on the woman to get married. (Its ending was reminiscent of several other noona romances I've seen, actually, which makes me wonder how influential it was.) It had some lovely friendships and was kind to even the less sympathetic characters. It did drag slightly toward the end, but the main reason I won't be rewatching is technical: glitchy files and out-of-sync subtitles in some episodes, which I could work around but it's a pain.

Imaginary Cat was a short, 8-episode thing about an aspiring web cartoonist and his beloved cat (we could hear the cat's thoughts; he couldn't), which should have been charming but was mostly dull. The story beats were clunky, cartooning is not particularly interesting to watch, and spoiler ). If it hadn't been so short, I would have given up about halfway through, but my completionist tendencies drove me on.

Next up, Chief Kim (with my teacher) and Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo (on my own).


In offline not-really-news, today has been wonderful. After three days of unrelenting sleety-rainy gales, today there was surprise sunshine, and our favourite outdoor public pool (heated) was open this morning so the boy and I swam in the gently steaming water, and it felt like an adventure, especially after being bundled in multiple layers of merino for so long. The concrete pool surrounds were freezing under my bare toes, but once I got in it was lovely and I had a lane to myself.

Then we had brunch at Floriditas and shared a brioche. Life is good.

yard kitty
A lovely white cat with dark tabby splotches has begun hanging out in my backyard. It (she?) flees every time I open the back door, but I've taken to keeping a bowl of water and a pile of catnip out there for her. I'm not providing food, as I have no desire to feed the wildlife (evil freaking raccoons, gah), but I like giving her a safe, shady place to get a drink and some nip in the 100F heat.

yarning
I've made some excellent progress on the current epic project. Last night as I was trying to fall asleep, I had a brainstorm that resolved the shaping difficulties of the part I was working on, so this morning I started the section over, and oh look, problem solved. There's still a fair bit to go, but maybe it'll be ready to show soonish.

healthcrap
There is a lot tbh, and I've been pretty under the weather. I am more than the sum of my healthcrap, though. That's the important thing.

Every time I go out to move a hose, I see dozens of things that make me think, gotta take care of that. But right now each of those things makes me think, what is that going to look like in two more weeks? I gotta take care of that now!

One Card
The card represents the critical factor for the issue at hand. Simbi La Flambeau (Eight of Wands): A sudden release of raw power, cutting through confusion and indecision, and setting things in motion. Rapid progress towards a desired goal, brought about by immediate and decisive action. Boldness and daring in love, business, travel, or spiritual growth.



It is true that I am using my anxiety about upcoming travel for immediate and decisive action towards a desired goal of clean kitchen, bathroom, and laundry.

Now watching

1. Three episodes of Dal Ja's Spring to go, and the subtitles are horribly out of sync on ep 21, and my non-hard-subbed copy of that ep is glitchy. Ugh! (Any idea where I can source a better copy or stream it from NZ, anyone?)

2. Other current Kdramas: Imaginary Cat (solo watch), Strong Woman Do Bong Soon (just started), Moonlight Drawn by Clouds (rewatch).

3. Other things: Carmilla season 1 (low-fi webseries, BtVS (minus the Chosen One) meets Welcome to Night Vale; f/f). Ant-Man (fun!). The Host (Korean monster movie about a giant trout; scarier than it sounds).
