Guys, my stupid laptop wants to kill me >*< I can't write properly! UUUUUGHHHH

(I'm currently using the desktop board which is annoying, believe me)


So seventh day of the snowflake challenge and I have to share a bit of canon and explain why I love it so much. If this thing keeps working I would like to share TWO pieces of canon about two of my most beloved characters ever: Harry James Potter, because I fell really hard after reading those books, and Buffy Anne Summers.




First piece of favorite canon: The forest chapter (Deathly Hallows)

You have the actual photographic proof of how much this book hurt my soul. Reading the last chapters of DH was an emotional journey and I cried my eyes out reading about Harry going to the Forbidden Forest for the last time, to let Voldemort kill him. Jesus.

It was very powerful and I think one of the best pieces of Rowling as an author. After learning the truth about his mother's death from Snape's memory, Harry decides to accept his fate in a very stoic manner and go alone towards his own death. I WILL FOREVER CRY ABOUT THIS. Mostly because, guys, he's going towards Voldemort!! The wizard he bravely fought for SEVEN mothereffing books, the wizard responsible for his parents' deaths, for Sirius' death, for all the pain and suffering he went through since AGE ONE.

And he knows that he cannot fight back - which is something that punches me right in the ovaries, he knows he cannot fight back. Harry learns the truth about Dumbledore too: how he groomed him for this, how he always planned Harry's death. And Dumbledore was his mentor and the person Harry trusted above all.

He learns the truth in the most desperate hour and he doesn't even hesitate. He doesn't stop for Ron and Hermione because he'll know he couldn't find the strenght after seeing them.

Oh Harry. He doesn't want to die. He never wanted to die. He suffered so much and lost so much (I believe he starts suffering of PTSD after the fourth book and depression in the latest two) And still wants to live but he has to do this. He has to walk to the Forest alone. AND HE'S SO BRAVE. He's only a boy and he's so so brave.



SON, JUST DON'T



Second piece of favorite canon: Dawn/Buffy scene from No Place Like Home




DON'T TOUCH ME. I believe you all know where this scene comes from and I don't really have to explain so much. It was hard to choose a single Buffy favorite scene because there are so many and I wanted to maybe include a funny one, because the Harry Potter choice was emotionally draining but well, here you have it.

Buffy's love for Dawn is the ultimate light into my pointless existence. I just can't deal with the fact that Buffy discovers that her annoying child sister isn't real in the middle of a fucking shitstorm of idiotic boyfriends, anxiety for her mother and dangerous hell-bitches and she just accepts her. She accepts and protect and loves Dawn with all her heart, even though she's not *hers*.

I'm literally so emotional about brave and accepting heroes. I'm out.

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: (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: (The hardest thing in the world)
My laptop is doing strange noises again, as I very very recently said.

Meanwhile I took the afternoon off and out of pure fangirl euphoria I made my second Buffyverse video. It's called Bad Habit, like the Dresden Dolls' song I used to make it. It's about self-harm and violence against yourself.

Note: I wanted to use different bits for Cordelia, like that scene in which she saw the scar on her back or another in which she took some painkillers, but I only have few Angel episodes and it's boring to wait to make things. I like to do them in the heat of the moment, so I used some other scenes. I hope that they work anyway.

And that's it. I hope you all like it. It's my second attempt. This time it was a little bit more difficult because the music was different, faster, and I had to keep up. But it was also fun.

I also have to thank [livejournal.com profile] red_satin_doll for her encouragement and just her constant support. Just yesterday we were talking about these ideas for new fanvids.

So here it is. Warning: self-harm and violence.


EDIT: The technology must hate me. Here the address of the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FnResUGq7_I


And now I can return to feel guilty for not studying.

Icons

kikimay: (Buffy blue)
This is my very first attempt with icons. I really don't know how to properly use Gimp or how to make pretty icons, but I tried. Here my first experiments featuring Dawn and Buffy.


1. Image and video hosting by TinyPic  2. Image and video hosting by TinyPic  3. Image and video hosting by TinyPic 4. Image and video hosting by TinyPic 5. Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I blame Joni Mitchell's song and my total incapacity of with Media player and stuff (Otherwise I would have made a fanvideo)
kikimay: (Good face)
I just found out this blog: http://buffytags.tumblr.com/

It's a beautiful blog, full of quick metas in tag form and I like it. I like that after all this time there is still space for Buffy into something new like Tumblr. I loved the mini-metas I found about Dawn being a badass or Cordy being awesome in BtVS and before that whole martyrdom thing, Spike being so full of feelings that it physically hurts me and, most of all, all the Buffy Summers' appreciation tags. Coming from a part of the fandom that didn't really appreciate the Buffster and often bashed her my heart grows at least three sizes reading all these little tributes.

And talking about tributes I suggest you to read [livejournal.com profile] red_satin_doll's latest post about Buffy - because January is her birthmonth according to a dialogue from Doomed. (I link just the name so you can freely explore her LJ)

kikimay: (Sisters)
I'm completely incapable of creating my own gifs and images, so I'm borrowing some from Tumblr. I don't mean to be unrespectful not quoting the authors, but I searched the images with google and I used various sites to make the comparisons. Because, seriously, I'm totally on board of this Buffy/Dawn and Thor/Loki's parallel thingy. I need to express all the things I'm feeling.

Here I'm talking again about parallelisms.


Not in blood but in bond )


So, people gifted with photoshop abilities and stuff: create, create, create. There's a similarity here and it's shiny. 
kikimay: (Thor)
I just read a fanfic in which Loki and Jane are friends. Loki and Jane together! It's the best thing ever! I know that there are many fanfics with Loki being friend with Darcy because she's funny but Loki and Jane have in common their love for Thor and plus she's incredibly smart and I think that she would easily being a good match for Loki. I'm totally on board of the Loki&Jane BROTP. If you have stories, videos or anything else let me know. I'll fangirl gladly.



Crossovering! *CCC*
(Gifs aren't mine)










Dawn and Loki should totally be BFF! (An especially good combo would be Dawn and kid!Loki since he would be much more cute and less psychopath) They have a complex past with mysterious origins and a pair of blonde superstrong big bro and sis who would never let them down.
kikimay: (Brain nerve and bounding heart)
Because of [livejournal.com profile] kwritten 's meta about Dawn I'm having the feels.

First of all I rewatched Blood Ties and Older and Far Away. And I love these episodes with my whole heart, Blood Ties especially, it's one of my favourites and it's really perfect: so angsty and touching with a bit of comedy and an amazing Anya and I like Glory being a crazy bitch dressed in red and do you even notice how pretty Willow's hair is or how beautiful is SMG?

Blood Ties is one of those episodes that makes me know exactly why I love the show so much and why Buffy Summers is my personal hero. I'm really moved by her courage and her love for Dawn; she's really the Immortal love of her life and Buffy chooses her. She chooses her sister and true love. Also this episode has the most, I don't know how to say it, marriage-like dynamic between Spike and Buffy. I love how they argue about Dawn and how Spike ends comforting Buffy and giving her his support and help. That's my OTP. (People, keep voting them on those polls!)

And talking about Dawn, I have to phraise Michelle Trachtenberg's performance. She's really amazing in the whole episode. She was so young at the time and still so incredibly talented. My heart breaks when she shows her blood and she said - with all her rage and sadness - that the Key can't be her. Such a powerful portrayal.

I'm also thinking about my OC, Annie and how much she's similar to Dawn and how strongly I identify with her. I never thought about it but Annie is really a mini-Dawn and she's the character I relate the most. So, maybe, my relationship with Trachtenberg's character is much more complex than I thought. I need to write more about it.

Also, if you want to read a good Dawn's fic I can suggest Daisies by [livejournal.com profile] spike_1790
kikimay: (Brain nerve and bounding heart)
Game of Thrones is back, yay!
Did you watch the first episode? Did you like it? I liked it very much. And now that I read the books I know where they are heading! I'm so pleased! :D

The Walking Dead's season finale was strange and anti-climatic. I'm slightly disappointed about it. The episode was like a regular episode while the season finale needs to resolve all the issues addressed during the season. Not good. There's also a little room for expectations.

The last episode of Being Human US was really great. Super-happy episode and we also got: flashback!Aidan, Josh VS his creator, Sally VS the witch and generally Sally being funny and lovely dressed (Seriously, her dresses! I love them!) and Josh's sister came back for his brother. And Nora always wears amazing shoes. I love it.

I'm much more pleased about Being Human than The Walking Dead and I'm generally very happy about Game of Thrones return.


Also I need to pimp this wonderful Dawn meta ---> http://kwritten.livejournal.com/97265.html This one, yes. Follow the link. It explains a lot about Dawn's cleptomania. Personally I never quite understood her need to steal things and generally what that compulsion was representing for her. Read the meta! It makes me want to rewatch a Dawn-centric episode, like Older and Far Away. I'm gonna do it with my new shiny knowledge!

Because of dragons:



Beautiful, right?
kikimay: (Buffy'smile)













I just wanted to share these funny images! XDDD
And share my love for you all once again. :3 I hope you're having a great time! I planned to translate the Christmas chapters of The Queen, but I didn't even start! >O< Sorry, I'm always so disorganized!
Still, the fandom has provided many and many lovely gifs! Can I recommend some?

Read this fic ---> http://angearia.livejournal.com/261237.html nd this one ---> http://spike-1790.livejournal.com/63080.html

The first is a lovely Christmas fic featuring Buffy, Dawn and Spike. It's incredibly nice and funny and I think it's perfect for the occasion. The second is a angst ficlet about Dawn. I don't read so much fics on her but this is incredible and very beautiful written.
Also, you can take the personality test a [livejournal.com profile] red_satin_doll's journal and compare yourself to a character! :D

Check on all the new entries and have a nice time
