TTT: Fandoms

Hah. Fandoms. I don’t even know how many fandoms I’m in, because I love practically many things. A lot. I suppose I could list a bunch down off the top of my head, and for the most part, they are video-game related. Some book and anime stuff, too!

Top Ten Fandoms I Constantly Squee Over

One Piece – Honestly, it’s still one of my favorite animes to date. I don’t know why that is, because so far there’s been a standstill in really good episodes, but I just can’t stop loving this anime. Also, the Pirate Warriors video games are pretty fun. Repetitive, but fun.

Ouran High School Host Club – BEST SHOUJO EVER. Honestly, it was hard limiting the amount of anime I fangirl over, there’s definitely a lot more out there that I love, but Ouran is the sole representative for shojo type anime.

Fullmetal Alchemist – YAAAAS. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood has got to be one of the best things that came out a couple years back. I mean, I did love the original anime as well, but Brotherhood kind of knocked the series out of the ballpark.

Bioware – Yeah, I started this list with just adding a series, then realized I’ve loved every single Bioware game I’ve played so far. So, um, yeah, Bioware just gets a lot of love for its Dragon Age and Mass Effect series. And honestly, the fandom for DA and ME is ridiculously talented. I get jealous from all the artistic work.

Bethesda – Also similar to Bioware in the fact that I loved all of the games I’ve played of theirs. So this includes OblivionSkyrimFallout 3, Fallout 4Dishonored, and Dishonored 2. Yeah. I totally play a ton of video games…

BioShock – This was probably my first entry into the modern Western-created game. Prior to this, I was often an Eastern gamer, and often I gravitated toward Japanese RPGs. When my sister recommended BioShock, I was skeptical, considering I was not very keen on first-person shooters. Hell, once I played it, though, I was absolutely hooked, and I’ve loved all three games in the franchise. Yes, even BioShock 2.

Final Fantasy – I am picky about which FF games I’ve played over and over, but old-school has always been the best. I must have played from Final Fantasy VI to Final Fantasy X with great enjoyment. I did play FFXII and enjoy that, too, though I suppose the appeal kind of stopped from there, up until FFXV came along.

Tortall series – No words can describe how much I love the world Tamora Pierce has created in her Tortallan series. It’s hands down one of my favorite fantasies.

Shades of Magic trilogy – Schwab has an awesome fandom, but there’s still not enough fanfiction dammit! This needs to be remedied.

Avatar: The Last Airbender – One of my favorite TV fandoms ever. EVER. I should have put this up near anime, but it’s a whole cartoon series that deserves to be set apart. I could say I don’t know why I love this series so much, but let’s all face it. I love it because elemental magic, Asian-inspired culture, a cast of fabulous characters, and martial arts bending all around.

Wrap Up: March 2017

Lots of moving around during the month! I’ve been charged with apartment-sitting in the city, so I’m obviously going to take advantage of my current location and attend more NYC-related activities. Which means food and booze and books. Not necessarily in that order. Work hasn’t let up yet, and I may have gotten sick in the middle of last week, but I’m fighting it like a BOSS because I’m traveling in a couple weeks. Urgh, timing, I swear.

Books Read

It’s funny that I have so many book-related pics but I don’t even think I’ve read much in March! At least, nothing super-substantial, save A Conjuring of Light, which took up the majority of the last few weeks. And I mean to review a few others in April, but I’ll put them here because I technically finished them a few days ago.

Hamilton: The Revolution by Lin-Manuel Miranda || Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson || A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab || A Life in Parts by Bryan Cranston || The Velocipede Races by Emily June Street

Currently Reading

The Cinderella Murder by Mary Higgins Clark || Portal of a Thousand Worlds by Dave Duncan || Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs

Writing

I started a few writing prompts here and there, but nothing substantial. It is a start, but it could still be better.

There is some writing progress on the publishing front, though! I managed to sell a short story I had been writing a couple months back, so that’s always lovely to see. Just got through line edits, too, though that’s as much I can really say about it, since the anthology doesn’t even come out until next year!

Movies and Television

Hah. I think the Academy Awards broke me, because I’ve seen a total of three movies in March. I hadn’t even bothered with putting up an image for it, because they were so meager (Hell or High Water, Miss Sloane, The Lobster, La La Land…again). No television shows, either, because I may have given that up for Lent. Um. Yeah. My Netflix has gotten very little activity on my part.

Video Games

Batman: Arkham Knight – I totally decided not to finish this game. It’s too rage-inducing, especially when one of the effing main quests makes you do a damn BATMOBILE CHASE. And the pace is merciless. So yeah. Not finishing this ever.

Final Fantasy XV – I gots me a chocobo! Clearly that is the important bit. And my gosh, the side quests and open world are much better than what I saw of FFXIII. Honestly, I haven’t played a FF game as fun as FFXV since FFXII, so that’s saying something. That said, I found myself listening to the old, nostalgic soundtracks as opposed to the new ones.

Fooding

Baking galore! There was clearly a lot of food I did in March.

Chocolate Chip Espresso Cookie || Laduree Macaroons || Jacques Torres Cookie and Hot Chocolate || White Russian Cupcakes || Spinach Artichoke Dip || Chocolate Ganache || Homemade Tortilla Pizza

Miscellany

Author signings galore! Amidst my work schedule I managed to squeeze in two Books of Wonder visits at the very end of February and the first week of March to see authors I loved (Schwab and Ahdieh). With them came other authors whose books I’ve been interested in reading for the longest time, so I also yoinked their stuff. All in all, lovely days, these author signings.

And then of course there was Dr. Seuss Day on March 2, and Reading Across America during the week. Because I work with older kids now, I had them dress up as fictional characters as opposed to Dr. Seuss characters. My own attempt at Delilah Bard was kind of conversation-starting, at best.

Nerdy News

I am so stoked for American Gods, I can’t even. So many yesses with the staff, and the pictures! Mr. Nancy looks awesome.

Doctor Who trailer! It’s been a while since DW has been on TV, and there’s some bittersweetness to the fact that this will be Peter Capaldi’s last season.

I mean, I already love Emma Watson so much, but gosh, I friggin’ love Emma Watson.

Video game making summer camp. For girls. I mean…WHERE WAS THIS WHEN I WAS A KID?

This is pretty exciting news, the fact that an African-fantasy got picked up as a TV series. Cannot wait for this, too!

Wrap-Up: January 2017

january2017-monthly

I went from being utterly busy in December to practically winging it in January, haha. Honestly, unless you counted all the pics I took of my lil voldies, I really didn’t take much last month, which may explain why several of the pics I have up are random things from my Taylor Swift experience (more below, haha!). Anyway, January brought with it a bit of hecticness, including some news about my writing and work-life (which I’ll also touch on below).

Books Read

Plaid and Plagiarism by Molly MacRae || Fables: The Wolf Among Us, Vol. 1 || Fables: The Wolf Among Us, Vol. 2 || Q&A by Vikas Swarup || The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon || The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald || The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden

Currently Reading

Totally going to finish the final straggler of 2016! And after that, I’ll probably catch up on a couple NetGalley ARCs before I hunker down and start re-reading some Schwab goodness to prepare myself for A Conjuring of Light. Yaaaaas.

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir || Armada by Ernest Cline || Gilded Cage by Vic James

Writing

Lawd, it only took me a gazillion years to write another short story that I was relatively happy with. I managed to send it to the querying circuit in any case, before my life got busy again, hah.

I’m also quite pleased at how the 2017 Young Explorer’s Adventure Anthology came out. It looks so pretty!

20170102_140312

Movies

Oscar-season has started! So that meant my movie-watching spree has completely skyrocketed and will continue to do so well into February. That said, I also watched a few other movies for shits and giggles (and WHY ROGUE ONE WHY). And yes, this is probably the umpteenth time I’ve watched Zootopia.

january2017-movies

Hidden Figures || Arrival || La La Land || Moonlight || Manchester by the Sea || Star Wars: Rogue One || Slumdog Millionaire || Zootopia || Tarzan (not pictured) || The Avengers: Age of Ultron (not pictured)

Television

Arrow, Season 3 – Alright, this is going to take longer to watch now, considering I’m slowly going the Arrow-Flash-Legends-Supergirl chronology route, which means “longer” equals “FOREVER.”

The Flash, Season 1 – I forgot how amusing this show could be at times. What I haven’t forgotten is how awesome Felicity Smoak is in both shows, hah.

A Series of Unfortunate Events, Season 1 – I binge-watched this the weekend it came out so hard. Now I feel a little bit emptier inside. Curse you, Lemony Snicket! CURSE YOU!

Galavant, Season 1 – Uh…yeah, I don’t think I could watch another episode, considering epi1 was just too much crack to begin with.

Video Games

The Wolf Among Us – Was definitely compelled to play this game in light of me having read the graphic novels. Maybe I’ll do another playthrough, this time with Bigby being a bona fide A-hole. Yep. Wouldn’t that be fun?

Dishonored 2 – Oh goodness. This game. Just…ugh. SO GOOD. I finished my stone-cold Emily run, so I’ve started a new game plus file with my nicer, sneakier Corvo. I missed Corvo’s powers, even though Emily’s are pretty awesome, too. And I swear, there are so many ways to complete a level that I don’t think playing them over and over again gets too tiring.

Fooding and Drinking

There was a severe lack of fooding and drinking this month. I need to remedy this. No, really, I do.

january2017-food

Sweet Chick || Marrakesh Mint Tea || Coffeeeeeeee || Roasted Brussel Sprouts || Roasted Cinnamon Chestnuts

Miscellany

So the Taylor Swift Experience happened down at the Seaport in NYC, and my bestie–being the biggest T-Swizzle fan out there (well, I’m a fan, too, I suppose XD)–decided to take me and my sister there. Needless to say we had a BLAST.

On another note, I might be busier, dying, or dead in the next few months, depending. I’ve been moved from my regular little voldie job to one with bigger voldies. Like…actually teaching math to bigger voldies. I suppose that degree was good for something. Seriously, though, pretty excited. And hella nervous, considering this’d be a really quick transition time and I have legit a week to take a crash course on curriculuming. Lawd why’d I say yes again?!

Nerdy News

Ride on the Magic School Bus! This was such a great childhood show that I’m actually looking forward to this reboot. And maybe more science, yay!

Mass Effect: Andromeda finally gets a release date, and ever since the announcement, there’ve been several lovely teasers, trailers, and promos about the game. Am I so excited for this game? YES. YES I AM. Am I going to get this game on March 23? Nonononono. Because if I do, NOTHING will get done and I will probably get fired for not doing any work.

Where there’s a nerd, there’s always going to be some Harry Potter-themed somethings. Like HP-themed restaurants. And crabs. Um. Yeah, even a newly-discovered species of crab get HP-themed names.

This Legend of Zelda game is looking breathlessly wild on the Switch. UGH. Another console I’m going to want sometime soon.

Look, I’m not gonna lie, ANY Gaiman and/or Pratchett media adaptation is going to be something for me to look forward to. Their stories are fantastic. And the both of them together in Good Omens? GOLD. And NOW it’s being adapted into an Amazon series? Yaaaaas.

I’m not surprised about Peter Capaldi leaving Doctor Who after the next season closes, though I am a little sad. I wasn’t a big fan of the first season he’d been as a Doctor, mostly because I hated his companion, but I thought he was his own character anyway. And these last two specials were just so lovely. It’s okay. Hayley Atwell for the next Doctor? PLS?!

I was actually a big fan of the Ocean’s movies, so this new one–which is apparently Ocean’s 8–stars a female cast of thieves and con artists, and it looks STACKED. It could be a disaster, but hell, I’ll watch it anyway.

New Final Fantasy VII remake pic! I’m still not as pumped about this as I should be, but only because WHO KNOWS when this game is ever being released…

November Wrap-Up

monthly-november2016

So. Much. Holiday. Stress. I don’t think I’ve been this busy before the holidays until this year, what with trying to get writing down in November and finishing my reading list and shopping, all that. darn. shopping. It could drive a woman bonkers. In fact, I’ve been walking around telling people to call me the ULTIMATE BUNNY, so maybe I have already gone insane.

Courtesy of my sister at Vida Land Comics for this rendering of me as the Ultimate Bunny.

This past week I’ve barely responded to comments and made any comments myself. For my fellow blogger friends, I sincerely apologize. I have been reading your posts, but lots of transition on the past few weeks meant little time to do anything else. That said, while I have been doing the other regular stuff, I just haven’t done much this past week to talk about the books I’ve read or the things I’ve written.

I guess it’s good that I have a monthly wrapup to do this!

Books Read

I started a number of books over the month, but while I loved a bunch of them, and do plan on finishing them, my attention span kept going to different things. Hence the lack of finished books and written reviews.

The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery || The Diviners by Libba Bray || The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde || Jane Steele by Lyndsay Faye

Currently Reading

I started the first three, and I intend to finish them before the end of the year! We’ll see how that goes, hahaha.

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir || Fate of Flames by Sarah Raughley || Plaid and Plagiarism by Molly MacRae || The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon || Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

Writing

  • I didn’t exactly win NaNoWriMo this year. My count has been stuck on 30,000+ words which, in the grand scheme of things, isn’t actually bad, considering I’ve had other stuff on my plate.
  • I’ve also managed to edit at least 15 scenes for my novel, which is a feat.
  • That pretty much meant writing everywhere I could find the time. Whether it be in the kitchen as I snacked, in front of my favorite view, or at school just as the after-school little voldies are busy watching a movie.
  • I’ve hit a dead end with my current short story. I will need to regroup at some point to write something before the end of the year.

Movies

My friend and I took a break on our usual movie-watching spree, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t go ahead and watch movies on my own volition. It definitely helped that I’ve been knitting quite a bit on top of my other hobbies.

november2016-movie

The Pagemaster || Big Eyes || Glory Road || True Memoirs of an International Assassin || Spectre || Mockingjay: Part 2 || 10 Things I Hate About You

Television

Daredevil Season 1 – Finished the first season! I will admit that after the first few episodes, the show kicked in for me, and I actually liked it. The episode with Stick may have been the defining moment between my indifference and my partiality. All the same, I might wait a bit longer to watch season 2, since I thought the first season ended on a swell note.

The Crown Season 1 – Why is there only one season?! Darn you, Netflix!

Roman Empire – Part documentary, part drama, and lots of Roman Empire-ness. I wasn’t much of a fan of the documentary part, so I didn’t really get past the first episode. Instead, I ended up settling for Spartacus.

Spartacus Season 1 – I’m still halfway into this show but OMG the spectacular gladiator…silhouettes. Yeah. Yep. Only silhouettes. Um. Oh, and Xena the Warrior Princess looks absolutely amazing.

Empire of the Tsars – The time period and history is fascinating, but the documentary is rather dry. I wasn’t digging it.

Good Girls Revolt – YES AMAZON THANK YOU FOR THIS.

Westworld – One more episode! Ford cannot be tamed.

Video Games

My gaming was limited over November, but that didn’t stop me from starting a few things anyway, even if it was just to fiddle around with a few things. That said, much of my gaming might be at a standstill, since at the moment, I cannot get my TV working. Sigh.

Dishonored – I got Dishonored 2! But that also brought about all of the first Dishonored so I ended up playing that instead.

Dragon Age Inquisition – I finally got Dorian to sleep with my male-Inquisitor! YAAAAS.

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate – I’m keeping that zipline! And Evie Frye’s assassin outfits. And I climbed Big Ben and Wesminster!

Ultimate Chicken Horse – They call me the ULTIMATE BUNNY. We can all blame this game for giving me an over-inflated ego due to my winning skillz (though honestly, some of that can be attributed to luck and the propensity to screw other people over).

Fooding and Drinking

Lawd, if I listed down all the foods and drinks I’ve had over November, I would need a separate post. So I’ll just simply throw these pictures here…

november2016-food

Okinawa Hot Dog Crepe || Pecan Pie || Ice Cream with Ube Wafer Sticks || Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, Stuffing || Lemon Cookies with Vodka Icing || Homemade Mojitos

Miscellany

  • November was quite eventful as far as socializing went. Maybe I might have to tone down the socializing in the future. It gets quite expensive hanging out with friends! No regrets, though, my lovely friends and family are a hoot and a half and I wouldn’t say no to playing games with them.
  • Especially if games include weird ones like Exploding Kittens and One Night Ultimate Werewolf. Just saying.
  • I decided to try out Owl Crate! I had planned on going to see Marissa Meyer at the local B&N for a signing of her new book, Heartless, but honestly, it seemed more like a hassle doing it versus to the Books of Wonder way. So I opted out. Fortunately, the Owl Crate website was doing a Wonderland theme, and I KNEW the content would include a hardcover of Heartless. I was not disappointed. I’ve signed up for December’s as well, but only because the theme is YA Epic Fantasy.
  • My sticker system is under way! Though lately I’ve been using the pink stickers more often considering I’ve spent the last couple weeks doing non-work activities and little else. Hopefully I’ll get back into the swing of editing and reading and writing. Hopefully.

Nerdy News

Some Star Wars News, including a KOTOR trailer that looks PHENOMENAL. Oh, and the Mother of Dragons may be joining a young Han Solo in an upcoming Star Wars movie. Yeah, that’s totally happening.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is not just one movie, but five! This sounds mighty fantastic, if I do say so myself. Honestly, I loved the first one as is (minus the little Graves reveal at the end, I mean, ugh, NOT who I pictured as Mr. G. to be honest), but I’m biased in that A) it’s Queen Rowling‘s HP franchise coming back to enchant the world anew and B) the mothereffing ’20s, man.

When Mass Effect Andromeda was announced, the biggest question on my mind was always “ARE THERE GOING TO BE TURIANS?!” That question is answered and I am all the more stoked for this game. Then, of course, the gameplay trailer got released and I just…I want this game so much.

New A Series of Unfortunate Events trailer! Ugh. WHY do I have to wait until January?!

A frabjous day! Miyazaki is out of his retirement for the umpteenth time to do another Studio Ghibli film. YAAAAAAAS.

Fullmetal Alchemist finally has its live-action trailer. The effects look really cool, mind, though I’m going to reserve my judgments on this matter until I actually see the movie. The live action Rurouni Kenshin didn’t exactly leave me impressed on that note.

Rothfuss’ Kingkiller Chronicles gains a fan and a producer in Lin-Manuel Miranda. That is beyond epically cool.

August Wrap-Up

I think my book reading pretty much disappeared by the last week of August, because I found myself occupied during the weekends and then-some. School is starting soon, though, so I’m actually glad at the amount of books I managed to read over the summer, on top of being able to take proper vacations with friends and family. 🙂

august-2016

Books Read

I actually didn’t have a favorite book this month. Normally I’d have read something super fabulous by now, but eh, I guess it could explain some of my book rut during the month.

|| A Promise of Fire by Amanda Bouchet || The Exile: An Outlander Graphic Novel by Diana Gabaldon ||
|| Secrets in the Snow by Michaela MacColl || Snow White: A Graphic Novel by Matt Phelan ||
|| The Cake Therapist by Judith Fertig ||
|| William Shakespeare’s The Empire Striketh Back by Ian Doescher ||
|| William Shakespeare’s The Jedi Doth Return by Ian Doescher ||

Currently Reading

Don’t laugh, but I totally considered it an accomplishment that I read another 200ish pages of The Way of Kings. I WILL GET IT DONE THIS YEAR. I might, however, just DNF Jade Dragon Mountain. I got pretty bored with it by this point.

|| Jade Dragon Mountain by Elsa Hart || The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson ||
|| Career of Evil by Robert Galbraith || Rebel Genius by Michael Dante DiMartino ||

Writing

  • I pretty much wrote everywhere in August. The best part about Vakarian is that I can move him anywhere in the house, and even outside. Of course, for a more compact sort of writing, I fished out my lovely traveling notebook and jotted notes down there, too.
  • Author party with Dreaming Robot Press! As part of the publisher’s promotion of the 2017 Young Explorer’s Adventure Guide, DRP hosted a Speculative Author Party on August 16th. There, authors of the upcoming anthology (and a few previous ones in the YEAG series) came to join in the fun and posted a things about themselves and about the stories they have planned in the future. It was super-fun, and I cannot believe I was part of the stellar group of writers for the anthology. Support the Kickstarter here!
  • An SFWA surprise. Related to the above point, of course. We also heard word that the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America has selected us as one of their Star Project kickstarters. THIS IS KIND OF AWESOME, YOU GUYS. Alright, I can breathe now.
  • I finished my steampunk novel! Well, the first draft is DONE DONE DONE. This isn’t to say I’m anywhere near querying this project, but the first hurdle is done, and I can now move onto the grueling editing stage.

Movies

Had a bit of a Star Wars kick in August, so I ended up watching the old, non-remastered original movies (you know, the one where Han Solo SHOT FIRST? XD). I also FINALLY watched The Force Awakens, which, shamefully enough, I hadn’t seen at all until now. My friend and I are winding down on our animated movies list, so we’re totally going to need a new list to deal with. I’m thinking a certain director or other, but I haven’t chosen yet. I did see Suicide Squad and am thinking about writing a review for it, because I thought it was okay. It wasn’t good enough for me to love it, but I also didn’t think it was bad enough to garner all the hate on review sites like Rotten Tomatoes.

Television

  • Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell – I’ve actually sold my copy of the book without having read it, since it was so low priority for me, but the show is interesting so far! It’s so British and Victorian and fantastical and magical.
  • Gran Hotel – So, uh, I hadn’t realized this was a Spanish drama up until I looked at the opening cast credits. But the closest I can describe this series is that it’s Spain’s version of Downton Abbey but with murder. XD
  • Midsomer Murders – I normally put this in the background while I do other things. Like blog. Likely I’ve got it in the background now.
  • The Olympic Games – I had to find many creative ways to watch the Olympics this year, owing to the fact that NBC completely commandeers the event for the US and I do not have cable. I made do, though.

Video Games

  • Dragon Age: Origins – I realized my friend had actually sent me the ultimate edition of Dragon Age: Origins which included all the DLCs. Which meant this was the only thing I’ve played in August. Also, hot damn, the Awakening DLC has left me confused over how I feel over Anders. I love him because he’s peppy and has Cullen Rutherford’s voice, but then I remember him blowing up the Chantry in DA2 and then I hate him all over again. Damn you, Anders!

Fooding

Learned quite a bit about vegan baking and cooking this month! And also learned quite a bit about how much food ten or so people eat on a weekend in entirety (the answer is A SHITTON, lol!). Also did quite a bit of eating around the city pier and the beach. Lovely yummy stuff.

Miscellany

  • Glamping camping – A group of us headed on over to the Poconos for a bit of a spell one weekend. I got dragged hiking, though I didn’t quite make it to the top of the mountain. Instead, I meandered towards a lake and proceeded to write there instead. No regrets!
  • Knitting stuff – I’m on my way to making several infinity scarves on commission. Grabbed myself more colors, believe it or not! Because clearly I need more yarn…
  • Beach day – More like Beach weekend. If anyone was near the Jersey Shore and saw two dinosaurs with super soakers running rampant on the beach, that was probably my group wreaking havoc. Yeah.
  • Harry Potter pub trivia – So there’s this pub in NYC that hosts geek trivia every Wednesday night. As an extension of the geek trivia, there was a Harry Potter trivia challenge on Saturday evening. Naturally, my friends and I went! It may have been a good idea to wait until the END of the trivia challenge before we started drinking. Um. We didn’t actually win, but we did jump 7 spots up by the second half of the trivia!

Nerdy News

Elijah Wood stars in Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency. I cannot wait for this, it looks SO GOOD!

My opinion of the past seasons of Doctor Who have been lukewarm at best. Mostly because I’m really not fond of some of the actors they’d cast in the roles (mostly I just did not like Clara Oswald). The latter episodes I did really like, though, so that’s a good thing. But I did love Capaldi, and I wish him all the best for the next season.

The notion of trying to shut a review website down is kind of silly, IMO. Yes, it discolors audience’s opinions of a movie, but honestly, I never really put much stock in movie critic reviews. I was more interested in the audience response, because occasionally, there’s a huge disjoint between “critic” reviews and what the audience thought.

Welcome to the massive CW super-crossover. I really, really need to catch up on these shows…

Hello, Superman. May I take this moment to welcome you back?

You go, Niantic. Honestly, I don’t see the point in cheating on Pokemon Go. Where’s the fun in that?

I wish this was lengthened to a full animated movie. You cannot take the sky from meeeee!

More Harry Potter books? Yespls! Although according to a few sources, these books are short stories penned by J.K. Rowling herself, and are to be released as e-books. Some may have already been Pottermore stories. But since I may have forgotten my Pottermore account, yespls to this!

Game of Thrones is delayed to summer 2017. I’m not sure how I feel about this…

No Man’s Sky hype kind of sputtered out and died. Honestly, I’d only heard of the game a month or two ago, and while I was interested in seeing the gameplay, I’m not nearly as gung-ho about getting this game. Besides, I’ve already sold my soul to Bioware and Bethesda for their next games.

Hadn’t heard of this show before, but steampunk wild west? Yespls!

More Agatha Christie productions! Yesssssss.
