I spent four days in Hamburg visiting [personal profile] maerchen_mond, and we did pretty much nothing except eating a lot of junk food, drinking alcohol, talking late into the night, and watching so many


Mission: Impossible III (2006)
Knight and Day (2010)
Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (2011)
Cowboys & Aliens (2011)
Edge of Tomorrow (2014)
Jurassic World (2015)

The movies were all re-watches for me (but new to her), and making it into a kinda Tom Cruise themed event just happened by accident. *g* We had a lot of fun, though.

We also watched the complete first season of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, which was a new thing for both of us (mostly, [personal profile] maerchen_mond had already started watching up to episode four), and which we both loved a lot! I know I read the book(s) about twenty years ago, but I didn't remember anything apart from the name. *g*

Also. Naming my user pics by episode was a bad plan for 10 years in the future when I no longer remember things by episode....

The 100  
This seems like the perfect place to come speak into the void and bad mouth another fandom.

The 100. OH MY GOD. Those bitches be crazy. I found a Niylah/Clarke fic, and was very excited, because I find them interesting. And then I read the comments on the fic from clexa shippers. Holy shit. Were we like that? I'm pretty sure I never called anyone who wrote brian/michael a fat pig. Good god. And Niylah/Clarke is at least canon.

My wife is a huge The 100 fan and big time clexa shipper. Today, missing fandom, I tried to get into it. I couldn't. I love the The 100. I liked Clarke and Lexa. I do think it was some ignorant bullshit what they did with Lexa. But...Its done yo. Can't we move on at some point? Do we have to mourn her and them for all of eternity. I still want Clarke to find someone new, be happy, find love.

Would I have forgiven QaF if they had killed Justin? I don't know. I think so. I KNOW I still would have wanted good things for Brian ultimately. I would not have wanted him to spend the rest of his life miserable and in mourning.

Don't purge me! Fifty Shades of Kinney  

Now this movie I'd have actually gone to see.

Flashback! Outdoors.

Yes. Cover your teeth.

That was QaF, right?

Things change and stay the same.  
Its been over a year. I popped on to find my journal was unreadable because the old customizations were no longer supported. Sadness to say goodbye to how my journal had looked for over a decade.

I don't know how to customize anymore. So I chose a random format. It isn't the same. But then, neither am I.

If anyone I used to know (or still know) reads this, I hope you are well. I hope you are happy. I hope life is good.

I still think of Brian and Justin and QaF. I still occasionally watch an episode. And I still, unbelievably, make up stories about them in my head. It is my go to when I'm very bored or driving in my car or trying to fall asleep. They are still my home base. My fictional place of happiness. My OTP. Even after all this time.

If you are curious about me. I AM GOOD. I have a good life. I have a great wife. I love my job (usually). And we travel a lot. I cannot complain. And these days my name here is not so accurate. The definition doesn't change daily. I am settled. I am somewhat defined. And I am happy with that.

Be well.

This week's media intake looks like this:


Resonance (528,272 words) by [fanfiction.net profile] GreenGecko
Chapters: 79/79
Fandoms: Books>Harry Potter
Rating: T
Summary: Year six and Harry needs rescuing by Dumbledore and Snape. The resulting understanding between Harry and Snape is critical to destroying Voldemort and leads to an offer of adoption.

This was one of my favourite "Snape adopts Harry" fics back when, and I'm still in the middle of re-reading. I mean, look at that wordcount. *g* This is the first in a series of three, although I'm not sure I ever read the last one. Anyway, I'm enjoying myself.

Didn't get any further with the HP movies, though.


Instead I watched Groundhog Day (1993) on February 2nd (of course). And because it's a beloved trope and I was in the mood for more time loop plots I watched Edge of Tomorrow (2014) right afterwards.

OMG, Emily Blunt is gorgeous! When Cage (Tom Cruise) meets Rita (Emily Blunt) in the training area and she comes out of that yoga (?) pose and she's all sweaty and dirty from the ground, and her muscles bunch up like that...ngh. Some helpful soul cut and uploaded it to YouTube. Five seconds to watch again and again. *g*

I believe I need to get myself some icons an icon...and done!
