[personal profile] turlough
Gerard looks surprised when he actually shows up, but there are two Starbucks cups by his feet.

"Is one of those mine or are you double-fisting?" Brian asks instead of saying hello. It's a serious question. He's known Gerard to do just that.

Gerard leans over and hands him a cup with a grin. "For you."

"Thank God," Brian breathes.

Gerard doesn't ask him any inconvenient questions, like why he's here, which is good because he doesn't know the answer to that one. But he's still looking at Brian with interest over the top of his coffee.

"You surprise me sometimes," he says.

Brian smiles. "I don't get to do that very often. Score one for me."

"More than one," Gerard says, with one of those smiles that does funny things to Brian's stomach.

My friend Bee ([personal profile] syriala) just posted her first Guardian fic. It's deliciously angsty. And short, so no big time commitment. It is HERE (please give her love and welcome her to the fandom)

I am SO HAPPY that I got her watching Guardian, and that she's properly fannish about it, and sending me angsty headcanons every day, and I'm just THRILLED. I'm thrilled to be in this fandom and thrilled that Bee is here too, and all of you who are also in the fandom. I am just so happy, yay!

I also got someone else watching. [tumblr.com profile] midnightselphie watched 5 eps last night! And then today I got an anon ask on tumblr asking where to find the Guardian English sub eps. :D

Here's to old friends and new. 🥂✨
(and I am endlessly thankful to [personal profile] mecurtin for getting me here, too!)

I have seen the first 4 eps of Detective L and I am loving it. I don't watch a lot of shows. Well, no, I watch a lot but it's usually the same ole thing. I cannot tell you how many times I've seen Midsomer Murders. It is familiar and Meg (my daughter) likes it, so it's on like all the time. When that's not on, we're watching the same old episodes of British Bake Off on Netflix. Occasionally something else like Mythbusters or Due South on DVD. But it's usually just... nothing new. So for me to watch a new thing is a big deal. I blame Bai Yu.

This weather this weekend has been so lovely, up to 22 today, which is amazing as it was really cold with sleet and snow just a few weeks ago.

I've spent this Easter Sunday being mostly lazy. Answered a load of comments, dragged James for a walk around the estate. Cooked a mini roast dinner and had a potter in the garden, wrote some more on my h/c exchange story. It's been a good day, and once I post this it'll be bath and book time and then watching TV.

Yesterday was pretty much the same, but with a bit of going to buy cat litter involved. I also planted a load of summer flowering bulbs, though as they looked like dried up walnuts I'm dubious if they'll actually turn into flowers. Oh well, they're planted now so all I can do is wait.

We'll be dropping off my nephew and niece's Easter eggs tomorrow then no doubt a walk at the coast and maybe a cinema trip. And I suspect, some hunting for cut-price Easter eggs. They always taste so much better when they're reduced.

James goes back to work today. Despite a phased return it's a weird shift starting at 8 and ending at midnight, so he won't even leave the house until 7. We suspect it's because his immediate boss is on nights and wants to be there for James going back. But whatever it is, it's a positive step forward. Health wise James is much better than he was, and we're still getting out for daily walks which is helping him a lot.

Of course the weather changing for the better is helping that too. It was such a lovely day yesterday, I could even go outside without my hoodie on, which hasn't happened for ages. Though we did spend most of the morning at the limb centre again. James was expecting to pick up his new leg but the stump cover didn't fit right, and of course that needs to be perfect, so it meant hours waiting around while he got another cast done, plus, the shop wasn't open. Which was just wrong, no cheap coffee for me.

After we dropped off Easter eggs for Corey and his girlfriend and eventually headed for home where on the night we watched three episodes of The Rookie, which was decent enough, but nothing stand-out.

The trip to Edinburgh went really well on Tuesday. It had a rocky start as when we arrived at Durham station we discovered that one side of the road was blocked off and you had to park on the opposite side and walk a long way down a hill and back up to get to the other platform as the lift was blocked too. Getting to the other side we found out there was a little golf cart thing that would transport people with mobility issues from one side to the other, but considering we knew nothing about it and it wasn't signposted on the shut side, it wasn't much help to us. But, we were on the train for 7:20 and apart from someone sitting in our booked seats, everything went great. The woman left with an eye roll and as the seats were priority ones were so much easier to get to with a bit extra leg room. Then, two hours later we were at Edinburgh, and went on to leave the station in completely the wrong direction, ending up in this out of the way area. Though it actually ended up good for us as we arrived in this deserted part just as a taxi was dropping some people off, and the taxi driver was great. First telling directions, then telling us about a taxi app that we could put on our phones and both get a £15 first use credit, which meant we got free trips to the zoo and then back.

We were at the zoo gates just before ten, so got in for opening. And man, that zoo is big. It's built over a huge hill so some of the top parts are really steep. To help people with mobility issues they have two converted cars that will drive you where you want to go. Which is a really good idea. What we did was walk the flat parts at the beginning and then got a lift to the top and walked down. Even so, it was a load of walking and step wise I did well over three times my average. James did well but was exhausted by the time we left. We'd had vague plans to visit the castle too, but in the end we left the zoo much later than we'd expected, and James was done. All he was good for was half an hour snooze in the Costa near the train station then a slow walk along the nearby park. Then, back to the train station and home by nine. I had to laugh coming home as we discovered the station was massive with loads of shops and eating places. Where we'd ended up in the morning I've no idea, but we'd seen no shops at all.

I have to admit, I'm conflicted about zoos in many ways. I've seen some bad ones, but Edinburgh zoo had huge areas for all of the animals and are doing good work in terms of conservation, but at the same time, the animals are still caged. So, yeah, conflicted despite enjoying seeing all these fabulous animals. Highlights were the pandas and strangely, the colourful birds area where a bird took a liking to James' hair and beard and sat on his head plucking out hairs.

I've put some of my favourite animal photos behind the cut )

warning, I don't do meta, just feels.

I rewatched the last eps, and now I'm about to rewatch them AGAIN with [personal profile] syriala (aka Bee), who is excited and worried and full of feels and I can't help but be full of feels with her. We're watching 33-40 tomorrow if we can.

this icon, the text is coming from The Boy With the Thorn In His Side, because I have Ye Zun feels that haven't been properly expressed yet.

Ugh but how touch starved is Shen Wei, for reals? I mean, I know I'm jumping tracks here but I feel for Shen Wei being who he is, this untouchable powerful being who no one really cares about on a personal level until Zhao Yunlan and god now I need fic with touch starved Shen Wei.

I'm having so much fun getting [tumblr.com profile] bloody-bee-tea into Guardian. She really loves Lao Chu. I've just got to get her over here to DW and we'll be set! The fandom on Tumblr seems pretty dead, at least compared to here.

I rewatched the last eps, but I'm watching also with Bee (we just finished 27). So my head is all over the place. I have a million fic ideas but no actual output on them yet. Mostly my fannish creative outlet has been icons lately...

Oh, and I've been listening to lots of music and deciding if it's Guardian music or not. lol

One hundred years later, here I am with my thoughts about Captain Marvel. \o?

I'll begin by saying that this is a v. squeeful post. To the absolute shock of no one, I fucking LURVED this movie. So, you know, prepare yourselves for 3500 words and change about this film. Woot!

For the non-spoiler crowd, I do think this is deffo a movie worth checking out. If you're a casual moviegoer, the film has action and humor galore. If you're into the MCU, there are plenty of things to keep you entertained (including random callbacks/Easter eggs).

It's not a perfect film--there are deffo scenes where the film stumbles a little. And yet, it's one I recommend going to see at the theater. Obvs, there are other places where you can watch it, but the cinematography is so expansive that, given the chance, going to see it on the biggest screen possible is the better option. IMAX is a good choice, 3D not so much. I've seen it twice on 2D and have no complaints about the quality of the film.

In some ways, this film is a return to 'classic Marvel movie' in the sense that the movie leans a bit heavily on comedy vs. other properties. It also has a deep-rooted optimism common in MCU films. Still, alongside all the ass kicking that happens, the film does include smaller plot threads that show how the directors come from the independent movie scene.

And now I gotta go to SPOILER-O-RAMA because there are tons of things I want to talk about )
So, did you liked it? Didn't like it? Wish there had been more [insert trope or character here]? Tell meee!
turlough: Gerard & Mikey Way, July 2014 ((mcr) ways)
[personal profile] turlough
"Mikey..." Gerard stretches out his left hand, eyes locked with the unicorn's. Somewhere in Gerard's mind there's a split: a part of him is aware that he's standing in front of the hallway closet at his uncle's house in the middle of a Saturday afternoon. Another part of him is running around in circles, trying to understand why there's a fucking mythological creature standing guard next to a smiling Mikey.

"Isn't it awesome?" Mikey says, his eyes huge and shiny. "I was just sitting here, waiting for you when there was this, I dunno, fog or something and then 'poof!' there was a unicorn."

Gerard's experience with animals - real or imaginary - is very limited outside of zoos. All he can remember about horses (or horse-like creatures) is that they can smell fear. Right now, he's absolutely sure he stinks of it. "That's great, Mikes," Gerard says carefully, waving his hand as softly as he can. "How about you come over here and we let your friend hang out in aunt Celia's closet?"

Finally, Game of Thrones is back. It's been a long wait. cut for spoilers )

We've been out and about the last week or so. One day we went to Durham. We went around the cathedral and had a bit of a mooch around the town. Then another day went to a nearby petting zoo where I got to feed many animals, and discovered that deer have very long and wet tongues. As shown behind here )

We took a very bumpy and cold tractor ride to look at the cows and I got to pet a donkey, though didn't get to hold a chick because of all the children getting the first pick. Which was only right, but still...

We've seen the new Hellboy, which was okay, but the people behind us obviously didn't think so as they walked out halfway through and today went to see Little which was a bog standard adult turning into a child film.

Tomorrow we're off for a day trip to Edinburgh. James has got his disabled person rail card so we're catching the 7:20 train and will come back early evening. I'm looking forward to it, despite living pretty close I haven't been to Edinburgh for a long time, though I can't say I'm looking forward to the early start.

I've really got to find a new way to organize my icons because I've been making so many and this was a BITCH to post.

Here you have a bunch of icons from Guardian. They are all sharable. Some were made in a fever dream. Some are over 40k, so they will be usable on DW but not LJ, if any of you were thinking of that.

Icons were made for challenges and for my own amusement.
