I'm watching Astérix:Mission Cléopâtre as I type this. I apparently know every line of this movie by heart, because I keep quoting them before they happen on screen /no shame. And I turned on the DVD subtitles just to see what they look like and I'm getting a bunch of new laughs out of them ("blub blub"), so that's great. They put all the Egyptian in hieroglyphics! Monica Bellucci is even more attractive than I remembered, Jamel Debbouze looks so young and this remains the only live action Caesar I like. It's fucking hilarious and the costuming and everything visual is really beautiful, too. (This might be my favourite movie.)

Anyway, I dug up my 2015 goals post, just to see how far along I am. (Let's forget that I haven't done a monthly report in months and didn't do the fic meme for 2014.)

1. Write 500k words total. (268 404/500 000. Good.)

2. Read 100 books. (40/100. Ouch.)

3. Draw 250 things. (105/250. Close.)

(4. Be braver.) (Efforts were made, with some success.)

(5. Chill.) (Efforts were made.)

Longer version )
You know what, I should probably do the 2014 fic meme, even way late.

January words )

February words )

Things drawn: 12 (ouch)
Things learned about art: EYEBROWS! Eyebrows do so much to structure a face, it's amazing. Also, having a darker/heavier line around all the figures' outside can do a lot to make them pop up from the background.

Books read: 25 (Stained Glass Monsters (Eferum #1), House of Mystery (2008) (this counts as 8 TPBs), Murder Most Witchy (Wendy Lightower Mystery Book 1), Hagar, Célestin et l'enfant étoile, Eve sur la Balançoire: Un conte cruel de Manhattan, Victor Hugo, The Magician and Laplace's Demon, The program for the Opéra de Paris production of L'Enlèvement au Sérail / Die Entführung aus dem Serail, Bran: Une histoire de l'île d'Errance, The Daylight War, Le Portrait de Dorian Gray, d'Oscar Wilde, De Cape et de Crocs (8 - Le Maître d'armes, 9 - Revers de fortune and 10 - De la Lune à la Terre), The Harem Club, Manuel de civilité pour les petites filles à l’usage des maisons d’éducation, Qadehar le Sorcier)

So that's 88 420/500 000, 12/250 and 25/100. Heh. Being ahead on 2/3 isn't so bad.
dhampyresa: (OM NOM NOM)
I go away for a week and fandom pretty much explodes. How fucking typical.

CAPTAIN MARVEL IS GETTING A MOVIE! I am very excited about this. (So is Black Panther, but my knowledge of T'challa is limited to the Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes cartoon and the one trade I flipped through that had his sister be the Black Panther.) With any luck, the catsing will be better than the Wanda and Pietro casting. Admittedly, I'm terrible at faces/slightly face-blind, but why doesn't Wanda have curly/wavy hair? Her hair looks so flat; it's oddly distressing. Pietro's hair is an absolute disaster too. (I don't suppose finding an actual Jewish and/or Romani pair of actors was ever an option? Thanks, Hollywood. /sarcasm) Also, is that a French flag I see in the protest in the Age of Ultron trailer? DNW Hollywood!France. DNW.

Yuletide assignments are here! I got mine. I like it! I was literally looking at the letter just before I got the email. No, really: I closed the letter tab and refreshed my email and there it was. On the not-so-good/wtf side of thing, I seem to have lost my physical copy of the canon. WTF? I still have the digital copy, but still. Whereever did it go?

Also, tomorrow is Free Comic Book Day!

dhampyresa: (Epic shit happening on the internet)
The fic I wrote is Training Wheels in which America Chavez lands in 616 at the start of Young Avengers v1, but who cares about that when you could be reading the fic I got instead? It's reclaiming her star and it is AMAZING. It's a post-Young Avengers v2 fix-it for Cassie Lang and it had her being friends with Tommy and looking up to Kate and sharing a metrocard with Loki. Go. Read it. It's 6.5k of sheer brilliance.
