Hi guys, how are you doing?

I'm making the most useless post ever just because it won't stop raining and I already slept too much and [livejournal.com profile] red_satin_doll shares my interest in Buffyverse fashion.

I also like to inform you that yesterday I ate one of the most delicious things ever. Ravioli with capesante (How do you call those in English? It's a species of scallop) and shrimp with orange and lemon flawored butter. OH GOD, heaven. (Although apparently I have weird taste or, at least, I really like strong stuff in kitchen and my friends don't) If anyone has the recipe for that or knows something like that just tell me because it was delicious!

Anyway I would like to rant about JKR choosing the wrong profession for Harry, but let's start with the fashion post and under the cut you can find the prettyness!

(NO SPOILERS. Also I will consider only the outfits inside the issues, not the cover)



FAVORITE FASHION ITEMS IN S10 OF BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER (Of course, the season is WIP so it's an incomplete list) )


So, that's it. My pointless post about BtVS fashion.



LOL.
kikimay: (Buffy and Willow)



Hi guys, how are you?

I really hope you're all fine. I'm feeling good these days. I'm watching and reading very good stuff and taking time to appreciate nature and my baby cousins. <3

Things:

- The Affair, season two. Very very good show. I'm in love with Ruth Wilson, who was amazing in Luther and never disappoints. Actual goddess. I'm also curious to see who is lying at this point, because clearly isn't about subjective perception anymore, I think that some motherfucker isn't telling the truth. Very engaging narrative. An interesting exploration of love and human relationship and the murder case is enjoyable.

- Doctor Who. Just one thing: MORE ASHILDR! I do love immortal murderous children (See Anne Rice's Claudia)

- Just saw Crimson Peak. Good movie. Beautiful creepy house, gorgeous costumes, gorgeous actors ... but I was expecting more? Like, everything was perfect just like that. I understood what the mystery was about quite early so ... maybe I wanted them to push the envelope more, so to speak. Explore the characters even more.

I read the latest issue of BtVS )



Also news from JKR! There will be a new chapter in the Harry Potter story! The Cursed Child will be out in theaters in July 2016! *CCC*

How do you feel about it? Curious? It's strange, for me, because I'm new to the fandom and super-invested, so I can't ignore the excitement of knowing more. I have A TONS OF ISSUES with the idea of Harry, 30 something, already married and father of three and working for the Ministry. I just can't this epilogue, guys. I cannot.

Still, I'm a curious kind of girl and I want to know more. Albus Severus, despite his unfortunate fate in the name department, seems an interesting kid and who doesn't want a Potter among the Slytherins? Still so many problems with Harry being a family man like that

Hope we see McGonagall! And Hermione and Ron! And Hagrid! And professor Neville! And Draco and Scorpius!








... I'm new. I like this 'verse. I have feelings. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

kikimay: (The ancient and noble house of)


Guuuyys! How is it going? Everyone's fine?

I hope so. As you probably already know, I'm planning another Drarry fic but from Lucius Malfoy's POV. Doubts: should I shift from Lucius's POV to Draco and/or Harry? Is Lucius capable of redemption of some kind?

Full disclosure: I do believe that Lucius loves his son and wants him to survive, but I also believe that he's emotionally abusive af and he probably doesn't even realize that, because he grew up with a strict father himself and he thinks that fathers just behave that way normally. So yeah, it's a pretty fucked up relationship (I LOVE THOSE) because it's between people who truly care for the other and at the same time are hurting the other. And, of course, it's Lucius who is hurting Draco. Draco, as young boy and then adolescent son, doesn't have the power and the authonomy to hurt his father.

But also: I despise Lucius as a person, as a racist asshole supporter of magic!Hitler, so if I make him recognize his huge mistake, because he just has to in my fic, that would be OOC? (And, don't worry, I don't plan to transform Lucius in Saint Lucius follower of Hermione 2.0. He's still an aristocratic ass anyway) I do think he understood how wrong everything was when his son and wife - and himself scared shitless - where suffering in their own house.

Also why did I have these fic ideas?

Anyway. Talking about shit fathers: WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT? *points to the latest BtVS issue*

The Return of Hank Summers )



kikimay: (Wants to see Spangel. With oil)
Hi guys! How are you?

I'd like to inform you that I finally read the latest BtVS issue. Goddamn, I know! I took me a while, but I'm finally here too. So under the cut you can find my opinions about the issue in question, but also.

I'd like to write another HP fanfic, another Drarry one but ... from Lucius Malfoy's point of view? Which weird, because I disliked Lucius, but also he truly loved Draco, even if he was a strict father and I just have so many feelings about parent/child relationships, especially when they are complex and slightly dysfunctinal, don't ever let me start. Anyone has suggestions or opinions on Lucius and why I conceived such stupid idea?

Harry and Buffy have so much in common that I think I might have "a type" when it comes to fave cinnamon rolls heroes who die for our sins. Also when DanRad became so fucking hot? The beard, guys. THE BEARD.

Anyway

Here's my thoughts on issue #18 )
kikimay: (Oh children)



Hi guys, how are you?

I've been very into HP so I didn't post anything Buffy-related lately, but I plan to read the latest BtVS issue and maybe try to express a decent opinion on it?

Thing is, it's kinda depressing to have all these amazing covers with powerful art and symbolism (The one with Buffy leaving Angel behind, for example) when the actual story doesn't have that kind of emotional resonance and power. I like Gage's take on the characters and I like that everything is starting to feel more like Buffy in terms of group dynamics, but I also think that we miss the powerful storylines we had in the series, the emotional attachment to the characters and the situations, the good drama. (S8 and S9 failed spectacularly in the dramatic parts, so I really hope that Gage doesn't use those as example)

In a way I feel cheated because for Joss it was all about emotional resonance and rocket launchers and I feel like we miss both lately. And I really, really miss Buffy being the HBIC. Pleeeeeeeeeease.

I don't want to be pointlessly whiny and I do love Buffy being helped, especially when she's helped by her loving boyfriend and her supportive friends *____*, but I kinda don't remember iconic moments like the rocket launcher one or Buffy kicking the living shit out of a hellgod with a hammer and I need those.

So yeah, I'm kinda pointlessly whiny at this point, but a girl can ask.

And that's it, really. Nothing special to say.




Btw Mini-Hermione and I are in the middle of "HP and the Deathly Hallows part I".

Mini-Hermione did not care about Dumbledore dying, but she was very concerned when Harry and Hermione were attacked by Nagini ("Let's hope that at least Ron is fine") Mini-Hermione likes Ron very much, although she feels like Harry and Hermione should be together. But I guess that it's like that when you didn't read the books. I felt like that personally, but now that I've read the books I totally understand Romione. The movies are kinda different? (The Harry/Hermione dance is still a favorite tho! *feels*)

I explained her the differences in adaptations between books and movies and, let me tell you, she's not pleased. "Somebody got the story wrong! The books or the movies!"

She also think that Harry should get together with Luna - "Because they have lot in common and they saw people dying" - and Draco and Luna - "Because they are both blond and will have blond children". (It's really important to have blond children according to her)

Mini-Hermione thought that Harry should have kept Dumbledore's wand after his death ... she was not wrong.

Also I kinda like to write more about Harry so, again, if you have any suggestions go for it.


kikimay: (Wants to see Spangel. With oil)
Hi guys! I'm taking a pause from the Harry Potter commentary (HP is so great!) to talk about the latest BtVS comic issue.

It's really hot in here and I'm very tired, so I could be more pointless than I usually am. But I'm having so many feelings about so many characters right now and I want to ship all the things and express my love for all the characters I care about and, really, DRACO AND HARRY BELONG TOGETHER, RAY VELCORO IS THE ULTIMATE LIFE COATCH, WHY CAN'T WE HAVE NICE CANON SPUFFEL? Mads Mikkelsen and Hugh Dancy are so hot, I don't want to ship that ship but also hot men having sex is hot. What is life!!1!!11!

I'm kinda in this sort of mood. Sorry.



This issue is cute and I like it )
kikimay: (How do you like my darkness now?)
Hi guys! Quick post because I have so many feelings.

1) Still searching for a beta.

2) I just changed my default icon and it's so amazing and badass looking.

3) Still thinking about writing a Spangel - Angel & Spike - Spuffel fic?

4) The cover art for Buffy season 10 issue 18 is THE MOST AMAZING THING EVER. I'm in awe.


Look! Buffy's a goddess! )


This cover fills me with hope, actually.

Maybe it's nothing and, I'm sure of it, it won't be Angel and Buffy's last encounter and maybe it's just a phase or something and soon things will be back again. Same old same old. But anyway, I really think it's an amazing piece of art and the symbolism makes me so happy.

Look at Buffy's face. Just look at her. She seems so happy, carefree and ... free, really. I haven't seen a look like that since Chosen and I'm the biggest fan of her final smile. No apologies.

She's looking at the sky, she's looking foward and she seems strong and calm and incredibly alive. (Also bonus points to Steve Morris because he nailed Buffy's physicality and sense of fashion. She doesn't have impressive boobs and she does have glorious hair and she's beautiful)

And, Jesus take the wheel, she's WALKING AWAY. She is! Look at Angel's face as he stands behind! Look at the cross he gave to her! *symbology boner* Is she finally moving on? Is she finally leaving her past behind and looking for something better?

You know, it's all speculation and we still know nothing about Angel/Buffy interaction and probably it won't happen anything (Considering this points I'm not putting this under spoiler) but it's just SO ICONIC.

Angel was the one walking away. Always. The one deciding, the one coming back and going to LA and having full agency on his choices. And I'm always angry because it's an issue that was never fully addressed. While we all agree that S6 Spuffy was unhealthy and Riley was a moron, Angel hurt her in a most subtle and everlasting ways. She imprinted on him and it was a neverending abandonament and trauma issue. He was Hank all over again.

And she always dealt and she always waited for him to come back. Well, I just love to see Buffy taking back her agency and deciding on her own and Angel being the one who has to deal, finally. I just love to see her leaving him behind, because she deserves so much more.

And, mind you, I'm telling this shipping preferences aside. I would actually love to see Buffy and Angel becoming really friends and maybe working on their relationship in the future. I actually ship Spuffel and I lovelovelovelovelove Angel and Spike so much, these two vampire dorks with issues are in my heart and I will always love (and ship) them.

It's just that Buffy is my homegirl and if she overcomes trauma and old demons it's such a glorious day.





kikimay: (Spuffy sexy times)
Since I'm currently into slashfics about old gross rednecks in love I'll be brief.

This post is about the latest comic issue. I'm EXCITE.


Spoilers )




Rewrite your narrative, baby! You deserve it.

Also next issue: more Spike. YAAAASSSS.




kikimay: (If the apocalypse comes beep me)
I just saw the preview from the uncoming issue of BtVS and it looks great, funny and cute (Even though I'm not sure about the art). Here: http://buffythecomicslayer.tumblr.com/tagged/buffy-10x11

What I think it will happen )

But I don't care. If they make an issue that is funny and interesting I'll read it with pleasure, even if it's not shippy.

I also saw some art from the Buffy classic comics. Do you guys ever read them at all? I read Tales of Slayers and Tales of Vampires and I liked them both, but I never bothered to catch up the classics. Did I miss something important? (I know that they aren't canon, but still)
kikimay: (Buffy's smile)
I just read the latest BtVS issue.

Spoilers: it was good )
kikimay: (Vengeance is what I am)




I'm just back from uni. I didn't even eat, but I watched briefly Tumblr and I discover something that made me happy (And it was already a good day)

Spoiler for the latest issue of BtVS season 10. I just love it because it's a slap in the face of those people who eternally made double standards between Angelus/Angel and Spike.

The thing is, guys, if souled!Spike is guilty of attempted rape, Angel is guilty of murdering Jenny and all the sick stuff he did. Stop with the crap that Angel and Angelus are different people but when it comes to Spike he's the same.

So glad that the comics finally addressed this issue (Even if Buffy is still making the difference when I think she should simply accept that Angelus IS Angel, that soulless Spike is Spike. They are the fucking same person)

(And yes, I still have to read the issue, so I'll tell you what I think about it later)

So cool )
kikimay: (Sisters)
First of all, happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] zanthinegirl and thanks!

Oooh I liked the issue!


*choirs of hallelujah* )
kikimay: (Faith)
I just read it. Uhm.

Uhm again ... )

I just read S10 issue #2. Things about:

SPOILERS! )
kikimay: (Spike is pretty)



Hi guys!
First of all I want to show you the new Angel&Faith covers: here at SlayAlive. I know that many of you rightfully hate the comics, but this year the art is so good! (If only were good also the stories ...) I just love these new two covers, especially the one with Angel and Nadira. It makes me think about chivalry: the fact that Angel wants to be the hero of the story and he wants to please the dame (And this time the belle dame sans merci is Nadira, who really is sans merci when it comes to him) Gorgeous art anyway.
Also meme!

Hi everyone! So news about my laptop: the technical guy says that it was just the wire. I also discovered that I keep the wires in a bad shape because I let them be all tangly. I'll try to be more careful. It's just that my room is tiny and how can I keep the wires all good? I don't know. I feel like I'm the worst person in the world for computer maintenance. (I'm now uncomfortably looking at the wires and stuff)

I cut my hair and this time I'm almost having a bob (My hair is shorter but that's the shape) I'm so pleased. I loved my pixie hair but I want to change my look and that seems a nice cut.

I also rewatched Entropy just because and ALL MY RAGE because of Xander slut-shaming Anya and we, as audience, supposed to feel bad for him because he was broken-hearted. Fuck you Xander Harris. I don't care about your blind heart. (Yes, it reminded me why I don't like him. Yes I'm rage-y)

Meme!

Hey guys! This is the time for my scheduled meme post.
Some things first. There's another Buffyana poll at [livejournal.com profile] mcjulie. This time about Normal Again. I love those polls and I love NA! It was nice to answer. Other pretty stuff (I was already typing Spike! XD) is [livejournal.com profile] comlodge's latest artworks about basement-crazy!Spike. I have a soft spot on crazy Spike mostly because: 1) still so pretty; 2) the gorgeous curls; 3) STILL SO EFFING PRETTY.

I also wrote in the Slay Alive topic about the first issue of S10. I'm kinda having hope which is bad. I guess that after lowing the standards so much it's almost normal to really like issue 10x01. I want two things from this season: 1) Ending the guilt fest of Buffy in the comics. Seriously, stop with that shit. 2) TEH SPUFFY. Give it to me, please. Their little moment in the first issue was so beautiful. I'm tired to see her putting herself down because she wasn't lucky with men - stop. with. the. guilt - and I'm tired to see them having feelings for each others that can't be expressed because we have to preserve that other option. Take a fucking stand, authors. (And, yes, I know the answer "they never will")

Oh, btw, some unrelated news: Carter Bays, one of the creators of HIMYM, said that they planned an alternate ending for the show. So if you buy the DVDs (Smart, right?) you can see the other version. Maybe they realized that their first planned ending was stupid.

kikimay: (Brain nerve and bounding heart)
First of all: sexy things. I don't know if anybody here is watching Hannibal. I'm not really a fannibal but I'm liking these current episodes. The last one featured shirtless Mads Mikkelsen. This man is so hot, somebody help me please. He could be my father, so it's kinda inappropriate to have a crush on him, but I can't contain myself. He's not the regular hollywood type of hotness like, I don't know, George Clooney (Who does nothing to me) he has a much more peculiar face. And I would love to sleep on dat chest.

Another hot thing, but I'm guessing that everybody here already read it. A Spuffy ficlet: http://archiveofourown.org/works/2626/chapters/3171 by [livejournal.com profile] stultiloquentia in which Spike and Buffy have pegging sex. One of the hottest thing I've ever read and I love it because isn't just pwp, there's actually a lot of introspection and a lot of love expressed in it. Also can I throw my ovaries at bottom!Spike? Because, seriously, no man has ever looked that hot.

And now I'm drooling. Okay, I'll stop here (But if you have other Spuffy stories like that one I would like to read them. I'm having my periodical quote of Spuffy feelings and I also would love to write something, but I have just a stupid idea for now and not really something inspiring) Can we have Spuffy in S10? I'm sighing.
