I’m like this even when I haven’t been drinking. My shirt is constantly wet from something I have attempted to drink.
Oh no, same. My pouring things on myself has little to do with my level of sobriety and everything to do with the fact that I’m an uncoordinated dweeb. Doesn’t matter if it’s in a water bottle, a glass, or a mug, there’s a 75% chance that I will spill my drink on myself.
Replying to @tybrebus and @emeraldtempest under the cut. Made reference to Legacy, so there are some spoilers for that book.
I may start reading this. DCnU was really pissing me off, so I started reading more Marvel. Now AvX is pissing me off, so I am looking at DC titles to read. I just want a comic that won’t make me want to bang my head against the wall.
Ahhhh. You should!
There have been a number of crossovers with the series, though, mostly with the story contained within I, Vampire (we saw Batman and Constantine, but the stories were self-contained). Then we had a crossover with JL: Dark, which you do sort of have to read both. Which was fine with Jayme and I because we get both series. But, the crossover issues in JL: Dark were a bit weak, but man in I, Vampire I thought those issues were fantastic.
That would be my only caveat with the series?
Other than that it’s a fun horror comic. Andrew’s ~gang~ that come about later (an older professor and a young teenager) are really fun, and any scene Mary is in is gold.
Also Fialkov is one of the most precious and endearing dudes working in comics right now and I just want to cuddle him a lot. Plus he’s probably the BIGGEST Mary stan so it’s all good.
And there’s consistently fantastic art (both the line work and the inking are GORG), so I think it’s worth a pick up. Especially if you don’t want to be wrecked by how much DC has messed with your faves.
And if you don’t like the whole ~drinking blood cliched vampire stuff, it’s also worth a pick up because it focuses more on them being like monsters (hence the shapeshifting).
So yeah!!! That’s my plug~
That picture in the theme is so cute. I think it’s the expression on his face.
#1— YOU are so cute! And thank you for following! (rachelgrey if you see this, thank you as well. :] I hope it’s okay little fyeah. We’ll see!)
#2— Yeah, I saw that panel when I was looking for an icon and I was just like… THAT’S IT! And then it looks like Ashley played with it a bit in photoshop to make it look nice there on the sidebar. :] I’m really happy with the way it looks.
emeraldtempest replied to your post: Lol just saw that response to vengerturtle’s post…
I understand that sometimes people dislike a character for no reason. But why is it usually a woman? Like 9 out of 10 times, they hate a woman for no reason. It’s rarely ever a man. Ugh. Why is fandom like this.
Yeah. I mean, I’m one of those annoying people that’s like ‘THERE MUST BE A REASON!!! EVEN IF IT’S STUPID THERE MUST BE ONE!!!’ But idk idk idk, that’s just me. REASON!! Like I’m straight out of the Enlightenment.
But with this girl… she said she HAD reasons and then… didn’t list them? While also saying that Natasha is interesting? Like, why do you hate her? I need to know your ~reasons.
And, lol, yeah. Usually people on tumblr (my corner, at least) are pretty good at not being lady haters but… man. In fandom it’s such a problem. And such an ANNOYING one.
I didn’t know you were a Veronica Mars fan. It really is one of those series that I have re-watched over and over again.Veronica was one of those characters who could have easily turned annoying after the second episode, but Kristen Bell was perfect.
Yep! I started watching it when I was in… 8th grade? They were still airing s2. And, yeah, it’s a series like that for me as well (except s3. No s3 no thank you).
I mean, it has a lot of issues that I realized more as I got older and rewatched it, but I do still have a soft spot in my heart for it. It was the first tv series that I really LOVED. (I remember when I found out is was cancelled I pouted for, like, an hour and also cried.) Also, yeah, I loved what Kristen Bell did with Veronica. So many of the characters on the show could have been one note, but most of the actors managed to add a whole ‘nother dimension (except Duncan’s actor who’s name escapes me. Like, woah what a charisma void in a sea of charisma).
1) Ice cream. Half Baked by Ben & Jerry’s is my fave, probably. But also all the other kinds of ice cream.
2) Chess pie. Most unhealthy/delicious pie in existence. Give it all TO ME.
3) My sister’s tequilla lime tart. Mmmmm.
4) Cookies? Like, fresh made of course. But I am also partial to, like, Oreos. (Secretly J’onn J’onzz)
5) Red velvet cake~~~
Ahhhh. Ok so this should be the last of the birthday messages (other than Lori’s)? I’m sorry if I’m annoying anyone, but I want it shown that I got all your messages and that they mean a whole whole lot to me.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BB
Happy Birthday! How does it feel to not be a teenager anymore?
Ok, so I really didn’t expect any messages in my ask box. I even considered deleting the post because it felt like pandering, and I just hate the idea of that, especially if I was pandering and not getting any responses.
But damn, this is really sweet of you. Exceptionally so.
I’m glad I got you into X-23 and AA because they’re just good books, I think. And I do think that they make it clear how comics can be really great. I know sometimes I get bogged down by the bullshit in the medium (some of the reboot stuff hit me really hard as well), so it’s nice to be able to read a comic and legitimately enjoy it. And I think both AA and X-23 achieve that.
But, yeah, again, I didn’t expect anything from this meme, so to have a message that legitimately made my night was really nice to have. Thank you so much for being so sweet. Having you on my dash has been a real joy, and I really can’t thank you enough for this message. You’re wonderful, and now have a very dear place in my heart. (I hope you don’t mind).
Lol if you combined all of Ashley’s blogs she would be in second. But as it stands, Grumpy Rose is still grumpy about being second. Forever the bridesmaid~
Ok! Lessee here… In no order!
1. Laura and Gambit. Yesxinfinity.
2. Laura and the Future Foundation. Peter was so nice to Laura!! And Sue!! And Valeria!! And Thing came around to realize how awesome she is!!
3. Laura and Daken. Sibling feelings! And I like that they are similar people that have the same genes that manage to be totally different and serve as interesting foils. Yes plz.
4. Laura and Jubilee. Perfect perfect perfect. Perfect girls being perfect together.
5. Laura and her lady pals back in NXM (Dust and Mercury!).
6. Laura and the Avengers Academy. Yeah, I don’t hate her there. Fight me. I just like Laura making friends. And am of the opinion that she can have friends on a number of teen teams?
Man, what isn’t to like about Monet? She knows how fabulous she is and she has no problem flaunting it. She’s perfect and she knows it, and you as a reader do too. Monet St. Croix will take none of your shit my friend.
“I don’t mean to sound unsympathetic… Not that I am sympathetic. I’m not. I just wish I hid it better.”
Also all of her lines p. much.
I like her current X-Factor outfit!
Her/Fierceness. In Gen X I shipped her and Synch, but :(. She and Emma could kiss a lot. They’re the only characters on each other’s fierce level
For her and Emma to get their own book where they snark and judge the shit out of other superheroes while sipping on cocktails.
Please just let everyone forget that awful Penance storyline from Gen X. Please.
Fierce, fabulous, queen, snarkster, best
The best? Is that a nickname?
