Hey all! Extremely random babble ahead... (Personal update - Doing comm/LJ stuff. Worked a double today. Tired but in a good mood.)

OUAT - I've got season 4.5 going as my background tonight, and I had forgotten that they had Poisedon be Ursula's dad. Which makes me realize, he could have been brought back to help them against Hades. Granted, there was a lot going on in that season, but still - missed opportunity that would add some nice inter-seasonal continuity (not that that seems to be a large concern, snerk). Especially, as it's Hook in immediate danger from Hades, and Hook that Ursula and Poisedon owe big time for reconciling them.

AO3 - I just discovered that AO3 has stats. My top fic fandoms by hits and kudos are Star Wars and OUAT. My Rebels fic is still way in the lead for kudos....so maybe I need to work some more on that series, lol.

Twilight - I haven't read or watched them. I did try to read the first and fifth book, but couldn't get through the first chapters. I can't stand her narration voice. But on my day off I watched all the "Everything Wrong With" videos on Youtube....and now I kinda wanna watch the movies. HORROR!!! But, damn, I didn't know the scenery was so beautiful...and there were so many shirtless young brownish men....ahem. Edward is even more awful looking than in the promos, though, ugh. His head looks like it's been squished, and white face looked bad on Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt, so....yeah, no.

I also watched Dawn of the Planet of the Apes yesterday. I liked it a lot! A whole lot! I can't wait for the next one to come out. I used to adore the old ones, especially Cornelius and Zira. I watched this one because I saw that the apes use sign language (research for my original fic). That culture they are forming in the movie is wonderful, and I wish we could have a movie just with the apes.

Still haven't seen Beauty and the Beast. For some reason, Amazon isn't giving me access to American Gods, that should have aired on the 30th. I already miss Rebels.

Oh and....
Joss Whedon is doing a Bat Girl Movie!
Squeeee!!!
Everybody freak out!!!!

Rumplestiltskin’s heart pounded in his ears. He swiped at the sweat tickling his brow. The slow, cautious journey through the tunnels of Hades’ abode had been nerve wracking. His fingers trembled just a bit when he slowly inserted the small key Zelena had procured for him. The armoire looked ordinary enough, but there was always a chance this was a trap. Not that he didn’t believe her commitment to her child. He knew exactly how she felt, fearing what Hades had in store for them all.

I'm not as excited for the return of Once Upon a Time as I want to be. I've been more and more dissapointed with the direction of the show since two episodes into last spring's half season. The misuse of all those wonderful actresses is criminal. And now they are apparently revolving an entire season around the ship of Emma and Hook. Really? Color me so bored. And worried that this heralds the end of the series, because if this is the best they can come up with...

Thankfully, I've also got The Venture Bros to look forward to, and the gender non-conforming heroine slowly taking main stage. I finally got my TVB review done and posted. And a quote from a different one is being reblogged on Tumblr. So, even though I haven't gotten to the Rebels review yet, I'd say that's a dayoff well spent so far.

I have a new obsession and its name is Defiance. I am going to let Syfy break my heart again. Sigh. But, dammit, I watched the pilot three times last night. Three times! I wrote a 1500 word review of it that wasn’t even that in depth. It blew me away.

To see that and the new TV discussions at Terror: Current TV discussions Arrow, Bates Motel, Defiance, Doctor Who, and OUAT.

Friends, stop by and leave copies of your reviews!

episodes 16, 17, and 18 )

So the good news is I finally watched an episode of Once Upon a Time. And I enjoyed it for the most part. Love Heidi from Heroes making an appearance. I don't understand why that actress doesn't have a more successful career. And she is aging beautifully. Though that actress playing young Snow is so horrible she hurt my face.

The bad news is apparently deep down I am a villain or OUAT simply makes good look stupid. Really stupid.

Spoilers and a scathing opinion on David and MM. )
