On ThorLokid's Tumblr.

This is already looking epic... and very forest-y. XD

I have a horrible memory (for everything that is not transcripts from TV shows). Seriously, I have to write things down in multiple locations, I have three separate planners, and I have to input everything into my phone and computer to be able to remember anything. That being said, if I promised you a fic or an artwork, and I have not done it yet, please-please-please let me know. It is very likely that I have forgotten due to me moving the in-progress files off my desktop or any other number of reasons. If you don't feel comfortable messaging me in my comments, just send me a private message. Thank you! *hugs*
Things have been a little hectic what with the first week of school starting. I've already been doing a lot of grading. Plus, I've been working on an artwork for the winner of my Tumblr contest. I got a little... over-ambitious with it, so it's taking forever, but I think it'll be worth it. I might have time tonight to work on it.

In other news, I had a story submission deadline today, and I sent mine at about 2:30PM. I hope they received it. I had one of those moments where, after I submitted the story, I thought to myself, "Oh, shit... What I wrote isn't happy enough. They won't want this; it's going to depress people." And then I get a little sad myself, wondering why I can't seem to write happy things. All I write is angst. Angst with stupid cute things thrown in that nobody finds funny but me. *head-desk*

On Owls-blog on Tumblr. :D

I think those columns are really pretty. I can't wait to see more of what the rest of the sets are going to look like.

I REGRET NOTHING!
I got to see it thanks to a friend for free, so no money went to anyone I don't like. I wish I could give all the actors, like, $5 apiece though for being so damned perfect. Should I clap because Whedon didn't royally fuck this up? Nah, I can just wallow in my bitterness that if he put half the effort into Season 7, 8, and 9 of BtVS that he put into this film, I wouldn't hate him as much as I do. In the immortal words of Tom Hiddleston, "Ehehehe!"

Spoilers below. )

You know, since Joss likes to claim that everything bad about his films is really the fault of other people (the Kazuis, the actors in his Alien film, FOX not understanding his vision), I'm just going to give all the credit for the good things in the Avengers to Zak Penn. It doesn't matter if none of his original screenplay survived to the final cut. I'm still giving him credit. How does it feel, Whedon, ya sad sack of old oats?! ETA: It doesn't help that I felt like most of the best lines in the film were ripped right out of the BtVS playbook. This is the first time I've viewed this film, and it was really bugging me the whole way through as I noted.

Trying to get back on the writing bandwagon...

6013 / 80000


I'm at 8% after taking a several week break from writing due to self-doubt and a few more rejection notices (not to mention that I've had to deal with financial aid screwing things up AGAIN right before the new semester starts). I've got another story I'm trying to finish before the 1st of September, but it's only 5,000 words, so I'm hoping it'll be done sooner (or at least on time).

In other news, I will be teaching again next semester! Whee! :D

I am reading The Hunger Games for one of my graduate classes this coming semester (it's on dissent and rioting in Modern Europe, and the professor thought it would be fun, I guess). I'm not sure I understand the hype, but, then again, I'm only half-way through the book and I've already been spoiled due to the Internet for most of the plot. The main problem I have with reading this is the grammatical style of Suzanne Collins. I want to take a red pen to most of the book. I know that it's a first person narrative so most of the grammatical choices can be excused, but it gives me a migraine because it is so distracting to me (especially after I spent too much of my time last semester re-teaching those skills to my history students, and they still refused to get it).

Also, the thing I was looking forward to the most about this book was the world-building, and I'm not really getting it. I feel like I'd rather find out more about what happened to North America to make it like this. Slaughtering dozens of children for almost seventy-five years is sort of the kind of thing that people don't usually stand for in most cases. How is a little teeny tiny parcel of land in the Rockies controlling all these people? I suppose that is why the professor wanted us to read the book, so that we would be asking those types of questions. The only thing I have been getting has been to be beaten in the face with the "bread and circuses" metaphor... and some of that beating is from literal bread. Katniss is, at least, a competent female protagonist from what's been presented so far; I will give Collins that.

I'm more interested, though, in a character that, I think, is in another book-- Finnick. From what I read about him, he sounds fascinating, and I'd like to learn more about him. However, I don't think I'm going to continue with this series after this first book. At the half-way point in the first Harry Potter book, I was hooked, but The Hunger Games leaves me feeling rather cold (I suppose I always have a "You see what happens when people forsake empathy and charity for their fellow human beings?" mentality for things like this). Maybe I'm just the kind of person that prefers WWII-metaphor magical worlds to Ancient Rome-metaphor dystopian post-apocalyptic futures. I hope that the fans of the book, particularly the younger ones, will consider the implications of a country that leaves most of its populace to die of horrible conditions and starvation while a select few rule over everything in abundant luxury, taking all the resources and hard-work of others for themselves and leaving nothing for anyone else. I live in District 11, technically. Tennessee would be part of the agricultural center of Panem. District 11 makes all the agricultural-based staple foods (not the livestock-based) to feed the whole of the country, but it is the second poorest district (first being the coal district). Isn't that just the way of the world?

"I picked Amora the Enchantress for my design. I’ve always loved her costume, and she’s one of my favourite villains from Marvel. She’s got style; she’s got power; she gets to hang around two of Asgard’s most awesome princes. Who wouldn’t get a little spellbound by her?"

He's managed to take his "consent issue" fetish into the Avengers fandom. GAH! How does he keep doing this?! And why does it always create huge kerfluffles everywhere?! Prepare for me to once again rant about the Glowhypnol sex in S8 and Loki's role in Thor and the Avengers! Gird your loins! This is not spell/grammar checked at all.

Spoilers for the Avengers film below the cut. )

Someone uploaded Part 1 of Henry V on YouTube! *squee* Less than five minutes in and I've already seen a dashing Hiddleston on a horse (insert your own Loki/horse joke here) and heard a very breathless yet exuberant "ehehe!" This is already perfection (and John Hurt totally redeems himself after doing the FMV game Tender Loving Care).

Do you have a Tumblr? Have you ever wanted to win a fanart commission from me? I'm having a follower giveaway on my Tom Hiddleston Tumblr-- RococoHiddles. You have to be following RococoHiddles and reblog or like this post by August 10th. Whatever fanart you request doesn't have to be Hiddleston-related. It could be Spike or anything you want. XD

I only have 12 followers, so the odds are fairly decent!

(Also, if you have a Tumblr, leave me your Tumblr name. My personal Tumblr is here.

I haven't read the blurb for this. I don't want to because I'm not going to actually read these comics, but Jenny Frison = Pretty Spike. Even pretty bloody Spike. Still pretty.

Prince Hal approves.

“Joss and I talked about the villains of human history, all the people in the course of the history of time who’ve tried to subjugate people, who’ve tried to get everyone else to bow down and kneel at their feet, and if you do any kind of amateur psychology on these guys, or not even amateur— books and books and books have been written on the fact that at rock bottom, they hate themselves. They don't have any self-worth; they don't have any self-approval, and so the only way they can get power or status is to get everybody else to physically be beneath them.”
- Tom Hiddleston, talking about his conversation with Joss Whedon and Loki's characterization.

The fanboy glee that Mr. Hiddleston has in regards to working with Whedon causes me slight pain in my soul. It's not my own hate for Whedon that does it (because I'm very glad that he is treating these actors with dignity and respect... probably because they cost too much not to). It's just that it reminds me of how Mr. Marsters used to speak of Whedon before things went sour. I will say, though, that if Whedon ever calls Mr. Hiddleston an "ingenue" or blames him for Loki's popularity over the "heroes" because he cries a lot, I will find Whedon, and I will get the Hulk to punch him in his big potato face. I'm sorry. I'm just having a lot of Hiddleston/Marsters parallel feels right now.
