Happy birthday to me!
Thanks to everyone who sent in birthday wishes and made pressies. I had a lovely day, thank you! I had to go to work because it was a Friday and the world has yet to realize the importance of the 26th of June to all of humanity ;), but I got a lot of special treats from family & friends and it more than made up for that. :D

As I did last year, I'm offering birthday souvenirs to any one who asks. You know the fandoms in which I operate. So, fics or icons, feel free to ask. :D

I finally got round to watching the new Star Trek and Wolverine, and I think my pre-expectations may have effected my appreciation of both. I'll have to do a re-watch before I complete the reviews I've been drafting on Notepad.

I've been off-line more often than not of late because work just gets eats into more and more of my life :p, but I still managed to get a Ferret brain account and have some lovely discussions about the new Terminator movie. Which... sucked, btw. But not as much as it could have, as hard as that is to be believed. :) The good thing to come out of all this is that I've rediscovered my old love for the 1st movie, and I've been watching/re-watching it all week. And reading fanfic. And making icons. You know me - I never do things half way. :)

Current Mood: happy happy
Current Music: "You got me burning"

Will Anakin and Ahsoka CW angst be an appropriate birthday offering? :D

I think it will be ideal. :D

*hugs*

I'm glad you had a good birthday!

I'm in an Anakin and Padme genfic mood lately, so if that strikes you, I'd like to see some of that. :)

I'll do my best but be too hard on me if some ST, unresolved or otherwise, finds its way in. ;)

LOL, that's okay. I really just want to see them being friends as well as lovers. AOTC time period would probably work best. ;)

Did I ever comment that your birthday and my birthday are EXACTLY one month apart? It's creepy... the 26th is a special day I think. Anyways, Happy birthday again and glad that it went well!

Normally I would ask for star wars... but you also like Jumper, right? Did you ever get that sequel fic going? Maybe I'll request a teaser :)
moonspinner From: moonspinner Date: June 28th, 2009 07:23 pm (UTC) (Link)
No, I never knew that!

I've been saying it for years, the 26th should so be a global holiday. :P

Jumper fic, eh? You certainly know me very well. ;)

There seems to be a sore lack of decent Terminator fanfic, or decent Terminator fandom in general. SCC stuff is ... creepy, to say the least. I haven't seen the new movie yet, but more people have been favoriting my Kyle fic at ffn, so I guess the film has spawned some interest.
moonspinner From: moonspinner Date: June 28th, 2009 07:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
I guess that's the sad side effect of a fandom with more than a decade of canon source material. (Clearly I don't count the non-Cameron films or SCC as canon. I'm not even sure I count T2 as canon half of the time.)


SCC stuff is ... creepy, to say the least.


I never got into the show. I really tried but when they introduced the character of Derek Reese, a.k.a. Kyle Reese's Big Brother Who Taught Him Everything He Knew, I quit. I've only ever read indiefic's fics, and they're great, but she's consistently good in all the fandoms she writes in so that's not a real indication of SCC fanfic at large.

It's great about Childhood. At least that's one good thing that came out of that movie. :P

It's fantastic that you had a smashing time for your birthday! :D Plus it never hurts to get lots of presents from your family and friends. ;)

the world has yet to realize the importance of the 26th of June to all of humanity ;)

LOL!

How goes your enjoyment of the new Star Trek and Wolverine films?

What's a Ferret Brain account? Pity that the new Terminator film sucked.

I know! I feel like if I've had one long birthday weekend. :D It's about to end, though. *sniffs*

How goes your enjoyment of the new Star Trek and Wolverine films?

Heh heh. I'm just back from my 2nd viewing of both. Certain issues I had have been resolved, but my overall impressions are still the same - not much in alignment with most of fandom! :O I'm itching to write a couple of detailed reviews, but I'm almost scared that I'd be tarred and feathered for fandom heresy. :p

Happy belated birthday! I won't ask for anything, but here's my sort-of present for you: I am working on the VOS sequel as I type this. I have an entire day off from work, family gatherings, and basically any other responsibility, and I plan on getting some serious work done. Sound good? ;)

I really enjoyed the Star Trek movie, but I was more meh on Wolverine. There were little aspects that I liked, but I didn't rush back to see it. And I was also disappointed in the Terminator movie. As with Wolverine, there were things I liked. I don't know, I may be in the minority, but I did like Yelchin's portrayal of Kyle Reese. (If there were flaws, I may have overlooked them because OMG Kyle Reese!) But I was not impressed with Bale's Connor, could not get myself to care too much about Marcus, and while I enjoyed seeing Arnold's face pop in there, it didn't make any sense to me in the context of the movies. Also, what happened to it not being safe to move around during the day? The future that we saw in the first two movies seems to have been almost completely ignored.

After I saw it, I went right home and put the first movie on. And it was awesome. :)

YAH! That's the best fannish gift ever! *squishes hard*

Thanks dear!

(If there were flaws, I may have overlooked them because OMG Kyle Reese!)

I think that's what bugged me the most about him. I mean --- OMG Kyle Reese, and Yelchin's character was such a woobie. The Marcus-Wright-thought-me-every-thing-I-know personality got on my last nerve. But yeah, Reese was the best thing in the movie. (And was it just me or was Marcus Wright the biggest Gary Stu ever? Because everybody suddenly started acting stupid around him so that he could swoop in and save their butts.)


Also, what happened to it not being safe to move around during the day? The future that we saw in the first two movies seems to have been almost completely ignored.

As I said elsewhere, "this is not the future my mother told me" does not cover a multitude of sins. :p

After I saw it, I went right home and put the first movie on. And it was awesome. :)

*hi fives*
