Thank you all for the lovely birthday wishes yesterday. I'm a little behind on replying to comments, but I'll get there.

Found on my network:

Or the time I named my cat after a character Shatner played. Poor Kirk, no wonder he was crazy, (even by cat standards.)

Before Discovery's premiere, [personal profile] gryffindoridiot and I had a conversation which resulted in me promising to write about a young Sarek's adventures in a Vulcan free love cult. Don't ask, it's a long story.

Today at 4 in the morning, (when I tend to come up with my best ideas.)
Me: OMG, Lorca and Sarek are the only two straight white males on the show. I must fix this!

Ladies, gentlemen, and people of all genders...get ready for the worst fic in Star Trek history.

P.S. I know I've stated on multiple occasions that I'm incapable of writing m/m, (except for the one time I did), but this idea is so insane that it might just work.

P.P.S. One day I will get an actual review of Discovery up in which I discuss such exciting topics as:

* Michael Burnham has chemistry with anything that moves.
* Michael and Saru's relationship is absolutely riveting, (but not like that)
* What happened to my red shirts? Now I have no way of telling who's going to die!

P.P.P.S. Why must I have so much homework?

I need more reading icons

What are you currently reading?

Anansi Boys. Haven't picked it up since I started it weeks ago. Need to get on that.

What did you just finish reading?

The Year's Best Science Fiction and Fantasy 2015 and Americanos: Latin America's Struggle for Independence.

The anthology was wonderful. Bite-sized bits of sci-fi/fantasy were just what I needed. Americanos...ugh. At first it was entertaining. It's written narrative-style, unlike most of the dry history books I've encountered. However, there was far too much information for a 200-page book. The story leapt from person to person and country to country, to the point that it was impossible to remember who was who. Also, I have doubts about the book's historical accuracy, given they couldn't get the frikking Aeneid right.

What do you think you'll read next?

For Kindle, Give me Liberty by L.M. Elliot. Because what I really need in this political climate is a YA novel about the American Revolution. *eyeroll*

Printed Books:
Kushiel's Avatar by Jacqueline Carey
Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
Possibly the Queen's Thief series...

My brain hates me because it's fall and that's the most I'll say without a lock.

Well not everything has aired yet but the remaining shows don't look that interesting to me so here's what I've watched so far: longer thoughts on Just Because, A sister's all you need, Recovery of an MMO Junkie, The Ancient Magus' Bride, Land of the Lustrous, shorter thoughts on some other stuff )

Overall, actually a much more promising season than I expected going into it. But I think I felt that way about last season too so we'll see how it actually pans out. XD
