I watched Man of Steel a while back with the family and tbh wasn’t very impressed and don’t remember much but what I DO remember is General Zod insisting that he was created to protect Krypton and was essentially incapable of pursuing any goal other than keep Krypton safe and I ALSO remember wondering why that basic drive hadn’t translated into keep Kal-El safe the red hot second Kal-El was all that was left of Krypton. I mean really. I would have enjoyed watching that. I would enjoy reading fanfiction of that too but I looked and it doesn’t seem like anyone’s written it yet.
(Yes this is me at 11.45 p.m. complaining that no one else has written my idea for fanfiction.)
- Rule 1: Post the rules.
- Rule 2: Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post
and then make 11 new ones. Rule 3: Tag 11 people and link them to your post. Rule 4: Let them know you have tagged them.
- Who is your favourite director? (movies, TV, plays, etc.)
The only directors whose names I can reliably remember off the top of my head are Hayao Miyazaki and Joss Whedon so I’m gonna go with them.
- What is your favourite children’s book?
- As a child, what was the thing you hated to eat most?
- Do you still hate it?
No, I talked myself into liking it when I was eleven or so.
- Who is your favourite protagonist?
Oh, that’s a tough one! Most of my favourite characters are sidekicks and/or villains, so no one came to mind immediately. Lee Kang To from Bridal Mask actually fits my favourite character profile to a T and I liked him pretty well once I stopped hating him, so maybe him?
- What is your favourite story? (book, movie, show, etc.)
- What fandom do you laugh at most often?
Homestucks? Definitely Homestucks. I hear a lot of bad things about them (I mean us) but all of the Homestucks I know are just kind of hilarious and/or intelligent. Some of the best fanfic I’ve ever read is for Homestuck! Also some of the funniest.
- What villain do you think is best written/played?
Like … ever? Uhhhh … I tend to really like Yoo Seung Ho’s villains. I pick Harry Borrison! He’s got that really cool veneer covering a lot of rage thing going. Also he’s a manipulative little creep and I love it.
- What book do you just want to throw across the room?
Rainsong by Phyllis A. Whitney, which I just finished reading yestreday (over a year ago), and The Winter People, by the same. Her books are usually okay (well, two out of four so far) but they’re pretty formulaic, which is beginning to be irritating, and in Rainsong she so carefully made character A super suspicious that it was rather too obvious that character B was the one who done it. Then in The Winter People everyone acted as if they had mental blindfolds on,and the heroine was annoying. Also, there were more interesting exchanges between her and a teenaged boy than there were between her and the actual love interest (said boy’s father). Although at least the father didn’t try to kill her. So.
- Where do you like to go to be alone?
There isn’t anywhere in particular. With this many people in the house if I wanted to be actually alone I would have to rent a cabin in the woods somewhere.
- When did you join tumblr?
I don’t actually remember but I got a third-birthday email from Tumblr recently so it must have been three years.
This must be the most beautiful DIY tutorial I have ever seen. And it so happens to be in style of this weekend. Found on Ulicam, a very nice blog by Ulrika Kestere, photographer and illustrator. For the whole tutorial and lot’s of inspiration, click here.
