dianamoon: Give My Life for LOVE (Gambit)
A bit of a brick-a-brack post for your enjoyment.


  • Subject is a quote from the season finale of In Plain Sight, it amused me when Mary said it, even though I fully don't get it as I'm not into Jane Austen, but I think I get the gist of it lol.


  • Speaking of In Plain Sight... The opening scenes to the season finale for some reason struck a chord with me. I'm used to seeing someone getting shot and killed cause of most crime shows but here, a priest witnesses it (along with another stripper) and it was just wow. The whole carrying the victim and shielding the three of them from the bad guys, to him giving her the last rites... it was just, wow. I was almost in tears. With the exception of literally the last scene (which i think they tacked on RANDOMLY), it was a fantastic solid episode.


  • Summer shows are beginning, woo!


  • Pride Weekend was fun, though I suffered for days after, being sore... XD And sunburnt but that was from the concert in the park haha.


  • It's official, mum and I are going to San Diego Comic Con. Bought the hotel reservations and plane tix down.


  • Was trying to get mom into the anime, Ouran Host Club by getting the first disc on Netflix. While she did like it, she didn't seem to be interested in watching more. I got the disc cause when she's tired, she can't read so quickly so we played the English Dub. It was actually pretty good. And made me fall in love with Ouran and Tamaki and Haruhi all over again. Def gonna have to catch up with the manga and read some fic again, soon. XD


  • So I finally got the video game Heavy Rain for my birthday. I love it. I understand why some people didn't like it but I still think it was a fun game. Finished it and now going back to get all the trophies and various endings. Went to GameFaqs for some help and got annoyed by this:
    Trophies Unlocked:  Pride Saved - psh, least popular
     trophy/achievement EVER! if you really want it, 
    start unbuttoning shirt and reach for the lamp /sigh 
    Gotta love misogyny. >_< Basically at that scene, you play the female protaganist trying to get info and not get shot at. You have a choice to strip all the way naked and then make your move, or take only one article off as you make your move. I did a focus group last year to this game and it was for getting the female's perspective, and we talked about this scene. We also talked about it would be nice to see some naked men as fair's fair (we kinda got that in the game but only a backside). So thank you creators for trying to make a balanced game, and FU to the male gamers.



Nothing else new going on with me sadly. Trying to do some writing, and hoping to get back to my original fic soon. Just haven't felt organized enough to finish off the background and world info. Hope all's well with y'all. ^_^
