Hey, so you may have noticed that I haven't started rewatches yet.

I've decided to wait until I'm back from my vacation in November. So, they'll start up sometime in late November. I know this ruins my plan of being done by Christmas, so I'll probably be aiming for February or something.

Rewatches will be a little different, as I won't be doing line by line dialogue interpretations - but just talking about the episode overall, sort of like my Quick Reaction stream-of-consciousness, but less recappy, more indepth, and with the benefit of hindsight. 

Anyway, the delay is mainly because a)I haven't ordered the DVDs yet. b)I'll be house-sitting for a friend for the next two weeks who owns entertainment that I haven't seen before and I'll want to spend that time watching things while I can, and c)I also don't want to interrupt the rewatch flow with a 2-3 week absence when I've just gotten started.

tl;dr: Rewatches start in late November, after vacation fun times!

 I haven't posted to this community in forever, and since forever I've been working on my own comics and such, which I wanna share here.


How does this work again? )

Oh hey, Jennifer Walters popped up again in Mighty Thor... and like everything else recently, was treated like crap.

If you saw the first season of Riverdale, you may recall its version of Dilton Doiley isn't the genial, well-liked genius of the comics, but a somewhat disturbed survivalist. This month's issue of the show's tie-in comic takes a closer look at him. Warning for child abuse.

!. We went on vacation last week and it was awesome! Colonial Williamsburg and Richmond which was a lot of fun despite the surprise October heatwave and humidity. Just getting out of town was really great and really necessary. I wish we had another week off.

@. I pretty much unplugged from social media and that was also awesome. I'm not sure I'm going to go back if I can help it. Unfortunately part of my job requires checking FB periodically, but I really hate everything right now.

#. I'm continuing to work on my Avvar!AU, and yesterday and today I hit my first writing block. I know what happens in the next section but I'm not sure how to do the bridge. The last chapter took an unexpected - but I think needed - turn, and now I have to get from B2 to C which I hadn't planned on. Why are romances haaaard? (Hahaha, I crack myself up.)

$. Work part of this week is "retreat" which is code for sitting in meetings for 8 hours, and let me tell you how happy my knee is with that. It really makes me appreciate how much I actually get up and walk around and use my standing desk and my footstool during my normal work day. I ended up standing at the back of the room for a while, and that helped some, but I still took drugs this evening. My cat makes a really great heating pad though.

%. [community profile] fandomlovespuertorico is live! I'm not offering anything, since I have one fundraiser fic still to write plus yuletide, so I'm at capacity, but I will be bidding.

^. Nonfiction books I want to read: Everybody Lies by Seth Stevens-Davidowitz and Why We Sleep by Matthew Walker. Vox has a couple interviews with the Everybody Lies author, which is about using big data from google searches and internet searches to see what people really think and want, with insights into racism and sexual desire. I read a Guardian article with the Why We Sleep guy who is a neuroscience researcher who ended up studying sleep after his Alzheimer's research pointed to stuff happening while we sleep being incredibly important for healthy brains. My sister already grabbed this one, so I'll read it when she's done and get the other one, so we can swap.

&. In other books, my dad got me As You Wish by Cary Elwes about the filming of The Princess Bride. It's a little self-congratulatory and "everybody is great!" ... but considering that my wedding was somewhat Princess Bride themed (I walked down the aisle to Vitamin String Quartet's Storybook Love, and our officient with our blessing opened with Mawwiage because we thought it would be funny and it was.) I'm giving him a pass. Plus once you get passed meeting people and into the anecdotes it's actually a lot of fun, and I was giggling a lot. I think my favorite parts were stories about Andre the Giant and hearing about the fan responses the cast gets.

*. My dad also got me Lab Girl by Hope Jahren, which I've only read the first chapter of so far. Eventually I'll lso get to the stack of sci-fi I got myself over the summer.

(. I'm low key watching Star Trek: Discovery. I haven't watched 1.05 yet. I'm torn on the show. I think I want to like it more than I actually do. But I'm giving it a chance to see if it finds itself.

). [community profile] farscapefridaypodcast  is on break till November when we pick up season 4. I'm glad we took a break, because the schedule is a bit unrelenting. I wish now that we'd taken a break between season 1 and 2 because it would have helped relieve my stress last fall a lot. But we only have one season left! I gotta say, rewatching Farscape has been kind of amazing, and this podcast is something I'm really proud of making, even though it is a metric ton of work for both [personal profile] katewrites  and me. It's totally been worth it. But I won't be sad when we're done.

_. I'm happy with my [community profile] yuletide  assignment. It'll be a little different, but fun I think. I matched on something I thought I would, given the statuses on the requests/offers page.

+. While I've written this list I've been ignoring my writing the Avvar!Au. I should get back on that.

In yesterday's post, we met Sakura, and we saw her getting in trouble by kidnapping an enslaved serving girl in order to set her free.

Part II is the conclusion to her first adventure.



With your trademark Sakai Twist™ )

Sakura is slated to return, according to Stan Sakai, but I've seen no indication of her comeback so far.

Edit: this story is available on Book 25: Fox Hunt and the Usagi Yojimbo Saga vol. 6.

Galactus Gags

"Ryan explained to me, he wanted it to be done in our style. He likened and wrote Galactus as Garfield and Norin Radd as Jon. That determined what they were going to look like. When you look at the Silver Surfer, he’s 75 percent of the way there anyway with Jon, all we had to do is give him the big eyes. That was a natural. John kind of hangs around Garfield anyway, he’s the straight man to Garfield’s gags and has to get him food. He’s like Garfield’s herald. Galactus was tougher. We were throwing stuff back and forth, and the initial sketches just weren’t working for Galactus. I said okay, we gotta make him fat. The guy eats planets, for god’s sake! Once we do that, it’s a little less Galactus but certainly a lot more Garfield. It looked more natural. Obviously, Galactus has put on a few mega-tons for this strip." -- Jim Davis

"At least my face can't turn out like the Joker's, or a giant red light bulb as in that Richie Rich comic...right?"


Okay, time to bring out the heavy stuff here. This tale of revenge upon revenge is so ridiculously, over-the-top grotesque and brutal it makes EC's "Foul Play" look like The Very Hungry Caterpillar by comparison. Warning for violence/gore.

This is a book about the characters and themes that Jim [Lee] and his friends created, way back when, and me, trying to do right by them. -- Warren Ellis

That sets up a Batman I want to read. That sets up a Batman whose pain comes from guilt, not just from inaction. I think a lot of us, when we think about the worst parts of our life, we think about ourselves being involved in them. It’s not just the pain that was done to us but [also] the pain we caused ourselves. In looking at Batman and making him more human and raising the stakes of the series, I wanted to bring out that guilt. -- Tom King
