The doctor has added laryngitis to my bronchitis, which doesn’t surprise me at all as I have practically no voice. She also didn’t like the way my lungs sound, so she upped my asthma medication and I am to stay at home the whole week and rest. I will be very poor in March.

Anyways, here is the fic I wrote for Chocolate Box, though in truth the idea has been in the back of my head ever since I re-watched Labyrinth just after the news of David Bowie’s death.

Title: Only Forever
Fandom: Labyrinth
Rating: All ages
Genre: Tragedy
Word Count: 662
Characters/pairing: Jareth/Sarah
Warnings: Character death
Summary: Sarah wakes up in the witching hour, feeling something has gone terribly wrong.

This...I mean...there are elements in it that could be good? And it looks like if they ditched the King Arthur aspect, this could be an entertaining if unoriginal (and way to dude-centric) fantasy movie. But this actual movie looks like a terrible mess. Also, needs more color. Of more than one variety.

Well luckily I have some sleepytime tea that I'm nursing so perhaps I've let go of my rage just a little bit.

I work with a few very difficult people and normally I have my boyfriend to act as my support. At work we are seriously an army of two-- we form a united front and if one pisses one of us off, we take up arms for the other. But well there are a few people that not even my boyfriend can quell-- among them Michael Stalcup (for all of you people who were around 3 years ago-- you will remember that name, it's synonymous with DOUCHEBAG.) and then there is Mariah.

To describe Mariah would be-- imagine if Dolores Umbridge (of Harry Potter fame) was a REAL LIVE PERSON.

When I first met her, I thought she was the sweetest little old lady and then my boyfriend (who wasn't my boyfriend at the time) told me that she'd probably try to carve lines into my hand if she could get away with it. I was sceptical-- until she showed her true colours-- it was over something stupid but she was being viciously mean and petty over it. There was a year where she wasn't actually that bad, but here lately she's been extra 'throw me in the sea and watch me float' salty.

We have this big trash receptacle in the middle of our picking area, we also have another one that is out in po-dunk ICS. When Fresenius has to get all the cording and stuff off the product, we take it to the nearest trash container. It makes sense, right? We aren't totally flakes, we do take out our own trash because well that's the decent thing to do. Well last week Owen threw some of the Fresenius trash in the central area, and Mariah goes "Take out the trash to the OTHER area-- your trash container" (referring to po-dunk). Owen says he'll take out the trash, and you know that should be the end of it-- right? WRONG! It isn't-- she kicks up giant fuss.

No one in Fresenius is going to walk all the way out to podunk when there is a perfectly good trash bin closer where we can dump our stuff-- we have a lot to pick and we have a time limit for it-- so whatever. Last week passed-- no one died-- everything got done.

Today, Fresenius once again uses the trash bin and then around 9 pm, Mariah comes over to where Renae and Owen are still picking Fresenius and goes "You know I love you guys-- I love you a lot-- but you need to take your trash to the other bin." and then she walks off. (No, she doesn't love us-- I am totally not convinced of this fact, and neither is Renae and Owen, Oh especially not Owen since I can see it on his face)

I interject myself, saying that the distance to walk to the other bin is too far (we use these bins on tuesdays and thursdays when we are running the packing part of our operation, and yes, we empty it out as well). Then she makes it a point to come to me and start ARGUING with me about how it is the same distance (not). Then it ends with her going. "Well you can take your own trash generated out yourself" (because we NEVER take our trash out-- ever). Now, let me tell you-- that was the most mean spirited thing I've actually heard? Do you want to know why?

Well today, Mariah was in a pickle with her orders-- she was swamped, so myself and Cheryl took some of her orders and picked them. We didn't HAVE to do it, but we did because hey, a magical little concept called TEAMWORK. It is coming together to work together for the good of the team. Because of that statement, such a childish and petty statement, I may have said(yelled) the following:

"Okay, you take care of your stuff and we will take care of our stuff-- because that's what teamwork is all about, it is about worrying about yourself before anyone else. Don't expect me to help you get done with orders anymore, or manually ship your orders when you mess up or anything like that-- since you are so worried about yourself and don't want to help anyone else."

her response--

"Don't be like that!"

Seriously-- not taking out her garbage, not going to help her bag her product on friday, not going to help her do boxes. All of these things that she takes for granted that we help her do. So ungracious of her-- especially considering that she never takes out the communal trash bin anyways.

*Deep breaths*

Wow, that was long-- so sorry you guys.

Back on a Moana kick recently. So I made this set and then I made another centering around the use of hongi in the film and belatedly remembered to check the tag first and oh. Somebody else had made it already (with almost the same choices of GIF size and frames- it was bizarre!) and their set already had more than 25000 notes. XDDD The digital release is tomorrow (it's already the 21st here, but I'm assuming most of you reading this are not on this side of the world, haha), and I'm very much looking forward to getting the mini movie with it! :DDD

Here, have some icons in the meantime! GIF ones are sized for DW, but the last two are JPEGs that will work for LJ too.

Your Name (君の名は)

A gorgeous movie that hooks you with its lighthearted and hilarious beginning and gradually ends up heartrending and suspenseful. The bickering between the main characters for "acting OOC" during their inadvertent bodyswapping is just delightful. XDDD My favorite bit is when he's yelling at her for spending his money on cafe food and she's like, "well it's YOUR body I'm feeding and I'm doing your PT job to earn it, so." And then the confusion and loss when that nuisance other half suddenly disappears. The plot is like The Lakehouse, but layered with references, parallels and symbolism, and the attention to detail is astonishing. I loved seeing the red string everywhere. I loved how it really felt like Tokyo, down to the warning stickers on the train doors. I got so nostalgic watching it- I used to live in Tokyo and even hearing that abrupt slamming sound of a train rushing past another made me love it all the more. It does the flip side of country life just as accurately, with the sound of fusama shutting to the accent (Gifu is near where I live, and my kids actually have an accent like Mitsuha's, to their Tokyo relatives' constant amusement.).

Despite all the buzz, I think anybody saying this is the best animated film of the year is kidding themselves? Moana, Zootopia and Kubo and the Two Strings convey much more powerful, universal messages, especially when you consider that the target audience is a lot younger. Yes, it definitely could have gotten an Oscar nod, but I don't think it deserved to win over any of those. Still, it was a wonderful film, and I made some icons to celebrate it too! (Really, I just wanted the words バカ and あほ on my journal. LOL):

Race to the Edge is back too, but have only watched the first ep so far. It's not as compelling as the HTTYD movies so it's easy to give them to the kids one at a time. (Plus I've already been spoiled via tumblr, so I can just watch those GIFs with glee.) :D

Reveals will be happening for chocolate box soon! Can't wait to see what else my gift maker has written! I think somebody has recced my fic somewhere because I just got a bunch of comments on it in this morning, which just makes me so happy. :D I wrote something that wasn't a popular pairing/character and it's towards the back of the archive because I guess I submitted earlier than most folks, so the hits have been pretty low. I'm glad people who read it liked what I did, at any rate! :D

You know, I can never quite suspend my disbelief when it comes to the whole "person who doesn't have and never has had emotions but wants them" trope. What's causing that want? It can't be curiosity, because that's an emotion. It can't be a logical decision that emotions are better, in this case, because Naga grew up in a world full of only people who don't have emotions.

But then, he was smiling and stuff even before he had his big outburst. I guess the Ophiuchians just weren't that successful at eradicating emotion.

(Also tangent but constellations aren't solar systems, a constellation system doesn't even make sense, plus if you're from somewhere else in the galaxy you'd be seeing different constellations oh my godddddddd)

Also I think I am going to scream the next time I hear the words yosshaa rakkii!



...So, all-in-all, pretty good second episode. Yay space sentai!

Here's the trailer for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. It stars Charlie Hunnam, Jude Law, and Aidan Gillen. Interesting background fact, Hunnam and Gillen worked together as lovers in the UK version of Queer as Folk. Don't know if they'll have much screen time together, but I'm looking forward to the movie.

Mikey snorts at the line, expects Gerard to bitch at them for saying 'tits' so much, but his brother is quiet and still, chest rising and falling, looking up at Frank. They're all silent for a moment and Frank's face, intent and predatory, reminds Mikey of that night, the way he crowded that girl and held her down.

"Fuck," Frank says suddenly, grinning and slapping Gerard lightly on the cheek. Mikey feels his brother's body jolt. Frank looks up and meets his eyes. "He is so ready for me to whip my dick out right now."

"What?" Gerard says after a beat, struggling, and Mikey laughs, pulling him back up the bed a bit, not letting go.

"He wouldn't stop asking about it," Mikey confides. Gerard tries to turn his head to look at him but Mikey's got his wrists still pinned so his face just ends up in Mikey's neck.

"No shit." Frank laughs and props first one knee then the other on the bed on either side of Gerard. "Can't blame him."

I've been trying to clean up my consumption habits lately. I know that one person choosing to use cloth bags isn't going to save the environment, but it's still a drop in the bucket, and moreover, it's also more convenient. Never again the "plastic bag filled with other plastic bags and tied to the handle of a drawer in the kitchen for storage" times.

So! Here I'll be listing some of the measures I take, and I also welcome suggestions from anyone reading this.

(Are they rounds if it's more or less continuous and unending?)

Anyway, I think this essay by Zen Cho is one of the best things I've read on the topic, and all my circle who are into SFF fandom should read it: Being an itemised list of disagreements.

This post by Rachel Manija Brown is also good, especially as it has a links list of excellent ways to help at the bottom: A more specific grievance.

I also rec their books, though RMB with the caveat that she's a friend of mine (WHO IS GREAT).


On more cheerful topics, I claimed an RBB art over at [livejournal.com profile] cap_ironman, which I know I swore up and down I would not, as it overlaps with [community profile] fandom5k, but there was this really great 17th-century duel pic, and, well. So I'm currently plotting that. Anyone who has fun things you think I should know about the 1620s in England, France or Ireland, feel free to add to the research pile :D (Huguenot Rebellions and other early 30 Years War concerns especially welcome).

Here's a poem: "A Valediction: Forbidding Mourning" by John Donne (Nenya: "Is this by an F_FA nonnie?")


I found a dead octopus, sent pictures to the Park, and have received cooing comments in return. Only biologists. We might finally get the scaffolding's taken off the tower this week. Huzzah! I keep meaning to do a picture post, but it has not yet occured.
