Time for an update!

I am totally deleting all the crap I just wrote about blah feelings. Let's talk about ANIME!

So, I just recently watched the first season of Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, Spoilers )

I did actually immediately start loading the second season after that, but I had watched episodes 9-13 in one evening and decided my heart couldn't take anymore wonderful right then. So I'll be getting back into it very soon XD

Also I needed to flail properly! Before I could go on this season had to get a moment of appreciation first! I think that's only fair!

I might even try and get back into proper flailposts when I watch things. Anime isn't the best medium for that because the episodes are pretty short, but it isn't impossible! And after falling utterly in love with Firefly (yeah I kind of regret not having flailposts for that but I was WAY TOO BUSY FLAILING TO WRITE DOWN WORDS) I will definitely be making a proper post when I watch the movie Serenity (hi Bhex 8D)

TV THINGS ARE WONDERFUL, THE END <3

While watching Hawaii Five-0 1x02:

(Another Steve and Danny scene)

Mum: Is this supposed to be a gay thing?
Me: Why, are you feeling it?
Mum: Yeah; they fight like a married couple!
Me: It's called 'bromance'. (My mum has never heard of this term, but I figured anyone can infer what it probably means from the pronounciation XD)
Me: ...You know, like House and Wilson*
Mum: (sudden dawning of comprehension) OH!


*For the record, House and Wilson is so beyond bromance. I'm guessing Steve and Danny will soon too move beyond it but dudes I only saw the pilot and the second episode, give it time! ;)


Also the woman is so badass. She is so badass I was actually so captivated by her badass punching people and fending off knife attacks and rolling around on the floor wrestling that not once in the two episodes we watched did I pick up her name!

The Rules

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick six of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee.





I've never wanted to suffer adverts (or pay for my journal) and so I'm afraid the choices were limited for [livejournal.com profile] mlina picking from my icons. Although there's quite a clear divide: two K-Drama icons, two Criminal Minds icons, and two misc/artsy icons.



My default icon is three characters from the K-Drama Story of a Man looking very sharp in their lovely suits. I went into the drama wanting to see how Philip Lee's second Korean acting role turned out and came out of it with a drama I love second only to Tae Wang Sa Shin Gi (which I have no icons of ONLY because there's *too much* epicness to encompass in 100x100 pixels!). The main character of the drama is the one on the far right, Kim Shin (played by Park Yong Ha). Write-ups make it sound a lot less interesting than it is. I have a pimp post about it should anyone ever be swayed by the icon enough to want to watch it. It is after all, why I keep using it ;D



My other K-Drama icon is of the Princes of Coffee Prince. Princes only in that their service is supposed to be as good as royalty or something (Han Kyul's marketing ideas are beyond me). And after all, if you know the plot - and Coffee Prince must be one of the best known K-Dramas out there - you'll know that one of the princes is a girl anyway. She's up in front looking adorably homely (but just look at some of her photoshoots and HOT DAMN). There's also Hot Waffle Guy on the left, stupid Min Yeop up the back and sexually ambiguous Ha Rim on the right. I would have loved to have 'The Voice' Han Sung in there too, but it's another ensemble package for me. I love the relationships between the workers of the Coffee Prince shop. I suppose I should have included Manager Hong but he wasn't in the promotional pic :P






Both my CM icons are made by the same person. I think I remember not seeing a huge selection and just liking this person's style and choice of subject matter ;D I love the team for the TEAM but I love Emily best and really wanted an icon just of her.

The other one I believe is the scene with Reid showing off his science 'magic' to the girls and Hotch walks in... Ah, I have discovered a write-up of the scene:

JJ: Nothing's happening.
Reid: Shhh watch [the rocket launches, JJ and Garcia scream, and it hits Emily in the head]
Emily: Ooh ow, what was that?
Reid: Oh, I am so sorry Emily!
Garcia: Don't you recognize a rocket when you see one?
Reid: I was merely demonstrating a physics law. I didn't mean to...
Emily: Oh show me!
Reid: Turn around.
Emily: Turn around?
Reid: A magician never reaveals his secrets.
Emily: I thought you said this was physics?
Garcia: He wont show us either. Trust me, it will do you no good to argue with him.
[rocket launches and lands in front of Hotch]
Hotchner: Physics magic?
Reid: Yes, sir.
Hotchner: Reid, we talked about this.
Reid: I'm sorry, sir.
Hotchner: [smiling] You're really starting to get some distance on these things.


The way to win over the ladies of the FBI is PHYSICS MAGIC. Which Hotch can't condone as mother of the team, but finds it adorable nonetheless ;)



Now for some more abstract icons. I have to say I think all of [livejournal.com profile] tomycoffee's graphics work is beautiful and I surfed the posts for hours and hours trying to whittle down what I wanted to use for myself. I so often ended up collecting posts with flowers or scenery, nature and landscapes. But I knew I wanted an icon with books because I talk so often about reading (and writing) and it could be my icon-mascot or something. A lot of books icons are too plain, or included people which for this I specifically didn't want. I also like icons with stacks of books in them but they can be too colourful or positioned in ways I dislike, and in the end this was what I chose for the simplicity.



I love peacock feathers. It's the brightness of them, the flamboyance. To me this icon sort of represents my creative side. For the drawing and art and sewing I really don't indulge in anymore. My overdramatic nature and tendency to abuse smilies in chatspeak and comments to assure myself that people know my intentions (cheeky, sarcastic, enthusiastic), because so often in life I've been told by people that they can't tell when I'm serious and when I'm joking, whether I realise that what I say could be interpreted as hurtful. I also love colour in general and the ways colours can be combined to create different moods and themes and play with it a lot. I suppose right now it could speak a little to my jewellery making (and wearing, because especially for me earrings are my huge fashion statement. The quirkier, brighter and bolder the better).

I love rewatching things. Especially things I already love.

In rewatching Tae Wang Sa Shin Gi I am overwhelmed by just how kickass the women are, constantly. How many of them are in positions of power, influence, how every woman has intelligence and strength, and a great many proficient with a weapon (except, for example, the Oracle who is THE high priestess and I doubt anyone would ever think she would have any need for a weapon). There definitely needs to a be kickass women picspam of them all. Right from Saeoh and Kajin, to Sujini and Kiha, to Ba-Son (the best blacksmith, now there's a great job for a woman!) and Dalbi. Gak Dan and her second-in-command, the Oracle and her second-in-command (she tries to be kickass, she does try. Just like Dalbi). And there are so many scenes with women in, too. Only the women. They are great players in the game, the politics, and the spread of power in the show.

I totally love this show beyond words. I am really so glad it wasn't something taken from a book and made because I think if it had been, the book(s) would've been better - they always are! - and I would have liked the show less for it. BUT IT ISN'T!

And the parallels I'm noticing, and the little tiny details that I didn't think of before. Even OBVIOUS things I really should've seen! Or the emotions running across a persons face, and now that you know what is coming next, you can SEE it on their face, what they are thinking in that moment. The moment they lose all hope, or spot an opening.

The love I have for this show is overwhelming. I've almost cried three times now, and I KNOW WHAT IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN. It doesn't stop me!

Seriously, seriously kickass women. Love it.
