I'm known to be a film snob, but I do have a weak spot for films that make me happy, plain and simple. And oh man, did Jupiter Ascending work for me. I went looking for simple wishfulment, I couldn't stop laughing as (fanficcy) trophes kept adding up and I left the theatre feeling happy and content. I do recomend it! Just don't... stop to think too much.

In other words, I should maybe move to tumblr and post there? I dunno. Just don't feel like doing this social media thing all thar much anymore.

So, [livejournal.com profile] _che_shire_cat_ recced a book called Mind Fuck (by Manna Francis) and I kinda liked it. (THANK YOU) Liked it so much that I read the whole series (that's available legally online!) and ordered them in paperback form just the other night. Liked them so, so very much that I felt like writing a rec-post of my own. I want to write fic and draw fanart and I'm way too in love!

I usually like the most fucked up fictional relationships. There's friction, there's drama, there's despair and things just can't end with people getting buthered with happily ever after. That said, I'm a fluff-junkie. It's what makes me squirm ang giggle. And I think these two things (shipping stuff that can't be healthy and loving the small moments of cuddling and smiling and d'aaaws) go together perfectly. There's always the small moment of maybe. Maybe things will work out after all and everyone can be happy. Maybe there's still today to be all lovesick and puppylike even if the world ends tomorrow.

The Administration-series is every possible thing I could hope for. It's perfect. Words I never thought I'd use.

Anyway, now that all that poetry is out of the way: REC-TIME.

Mind Fuck is the first book of the Administration-series. You can go read it's official summary (and the whole series!) from the site I just linked.
The first book is the story of Toreth, a para-investigator (read: detective and torturer) that is really good at what he does. Toreth... isn't a nice person, but there's something so wrong about him that you can't help but sympathize with him. (It's not the usual "bad boy"-syndrome. I swear! He's very rational about what he does. His 9-to-5 job is torturing. His hobbies include playing mind games and fucking around)

And then there's Warrick. Who messes up with Toreth's mind better than anyone should. And you have to love him for it. Oh, and his job is to create virtual realities in a machine they call the Sim.

There's also sex with a layer of BDSM that reads like someone knows what they are writing about (BDSM written right! It's true!). And all of this is built into the plot and not just plastered on it. I was lured into reading by the promise of well written slash and stayed for the world and the characters (and their fucked up relationship.).

The rest of the series is just as good (or even better!) as the first book. For two weeks I hurried home every night to read more, reading more than once long past midnight because I wanted to know what was going to happen next. And I don't think I was disappointed even once.

Only complaint I have is that there's not enough people who know about this series and the fandom seems to be small and dying D: Go and read it. NOW.

It's been a while since I last posted. And it's been even longer since I've posted something fandom related.

I feel almost guilty admitting this, but I absolutely adore The Vampire Chronicles. I've been in love for long time - they were the books that forced (among many other fannish things) me to learn english. Oh yeah. There are better places to learn one's english from (vocabulary they teach is somewhat.. flowery), but nothing's going to take the awesomeness that Anne Rice was for 12-13 year old me away.
Cue fangirlism: )

This post is rated T for happy thoughts, crushes and occasional insanity.

Today has been happy surprises after another. Glimpses - a short stories collection by Lynn Flewelling arrived today in mail and well, I GOT A DRAWING OF MINE IN IT. (I knew there would be - that piece of info was published ages ago, but it didn't feel that real before today) There it was, sitting on a page, looking pretty and professional and real. I read the book so very quickly and it was all about awws and oohs. Pretty little thing. Gah, I can't really believe it that me, silly little me that gave up on art few years ago just to pick the pencil up half a year ago and the first thing I do is to draw a picture, get it printed in a book by Lynn "this is just too cute" Flewelling. I don't think I thanked her loudly enough. Hardly got my words resemble words in the mail I sent to her... Glimpses is now waiting me on my pillow so I can stare it a while before it's time to go to sleep. This can't be real.

Got a beta. That's it. If you read this, dear beta, know you're appreciated. Finally Every Day Play can get finished. It's been waiting since the summer and the first snow is expected before the end of the month - Winter is coming D:

I really got a crush on X, the main character I gushed about in my latest post. She's haunting my drawings: four pictures of her exist already and she's been "alive" for a week. Just have to get her a love interest- Okay, I'm not really that sure there's going to be any romance in Nano -10. It looks like there's going to be a junkie getting her fix than any real love, but it'll be fun to write anyway.
