The title of this post is an exact transcription of what I spluttered immediately on reading the last sentence of Robin McKinley's Pegasus.

If you are at all fond of closure and are thinking of reading that book, don't. It doesn't end; it stops. The last scene, the last sentence, the last word, just compounds the problems that have been mounting since the book started, none of them are ever resolved, and I am given to understand that Robin McKinley doesn't do sequels.
lienne: Outer space. (emotion: not in touch with reality)
Okay guys.

I saw X-Men: First Class.

It was an amazing movie in many ways and I loved it quite a lot!

But.

Okay, I'm done.

no wait )

Ladies, gentlemen, and assorted vertebrates, I come before you today to sincerely and wholeheartedly recommend a Twilight fanfic.

No, I mean it.

It's called Luminosity. It's made me laugh my ass off, broken my heart, made me aww so hard the rain of wubbleyous lasted for days, and broken my heart again. It is actually genuinely glorious.

Premise: Bella Swan is thoughtful and self-aware.

Interested?

Go have a look.

of a conversation with [personal profile] orm

I expect it will be of interest to anyone on the dwircleflist who knows both Homestuck and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

if you only know one of those two things you can read it anyway but you might find yourself a touch bewildered

[personal profile] lienne: ...why... am I now trying to come up with a title for troll kiss kiss bang bang...

because EVERYTHING IS MORE FUN WITH TROLL MOVIE TITLES

[personal profile] lienne: I just can't decide how to trollship harry and perry
maybe that is actually a major subplot of troll kkbb
how they can't fucking make up their minds between kismesis and moirail

YES CLEARLY )

I have discovered in myself an unexpected love of Jake Gyllenhaal getting mocked and fleeing from things. (I already know I like to watch men with long hair kicking ass. ♥ Leverage.)

That movie was basically fucking awesome. My one complaint: they could've cast, y'know, a Persian to play the Prince of Persia. On the other hand, then he wouldn't have been Jake Gyllenhaal. On the gripping hand, maybe he would've been even awesomer! We will never know.

So I saw Where the Wild Things Are.

Man, that was a good movie. It reminded me of all the things I had forgotten about my childhood. I love it to bits. Even though it kinda made me cry.

The Listener: how to solve crimes by being a telepathic STALKER.

SERIOUSLY LYING YOUR WAY INTO A GUY'S HOME IS JUST DODGY EVEN IF YOU THINK HE MIGHT BE LIGHTING PEOPLE'S HOUSES ON FIRE.

(IT IS OKAY TOBY LOGAN I LOVE YOU ANYWAY.)

ETA: "WORSHIPPING AT THE ALTAR OF CRAZY" HAVE I MENTIONED I LOVE THIS SHOW.

I CANNOT FUCKING GET OVER HOW TORONTONIAN THIS SHOW IS.

TWENTY-DOLLAR BILLS AND TOONIES AND TTC BUSSES.

THERE IS ALSO A PLOT AND STUFF BUT I DON'T CARE, I AM TOO BUSY GLEEING AT THE SETTING.

PS: THE MAIN CHARACTER IS ADORKABLE.

Went to see Quintotrek again, with Dad!

Showing was at 5:50. We left the house at 5:40. Jogged the first eighth or so of the trip, speed-walked the rest of the way, arrived barely past 6:00.

The jogging at the start was perhaps unwise, because my dad is a long-distance runner and I... am not. I kept pace with him for two minutes, and my reward is an ache in my throat, just behind dead centre of my collarbone, every time I take a deep breath. D:

On the other hand, Quintotrek: even better the second time through. HELL YEAH.

Roger Zelazny confuses me.

I mean, his prose actually doesn't make any sense. It does not do the job of conveying speech and action to the reader in an intelligible fashion.

Maybe this story (The Doors of his Face, the Lamps of his Mouth) was just heavily experimental, I dunno. But when I have to reread a paragraph several times to understand what just happened (and sometimes am still lost after the fourth run-through), I'm not impressed.

FUCK YEAH

Saw the new Star Trek.

Not that I knew anything at all about Trek except that Klingons are awesome and Vulcans are space elves, but that movie was FUCKING AWESOME AS HELL from start to finish.

I have no spoilers, only GLEE.

Saw Wolverine.

FUCK YEAH WADE

I do not know the first thing about this guy, but I am beginning to think I should learn.

How much of fandom would kill me if I pondered RPing the film version without knowing the comics? In, you know, an alternate reality where I actually pick up new pups after being lured in by the shiny and posting to my journal about how I should totally give them a shot.

Matsuda, you idiot.

I keep linking on L's lines. This is probably a sign.

I bet all the good screennames are taken, too. *checks every conceivable permutation of "taking the cake"* ... *sighs*
