Guardians of the Galaxy remains not just my favourite MCU franchise, but one of my favourite franchises period… so OH MAN I wish I liked this trailer better. I mean, it’s not terrible? It’s got lots of Gamora which is obviously good! But if they actually push a Peter/Nebula romance and it’s not just a throwaway joke… There will be violence.
It has been almost 2 weeks since The Last of Us “Long Long Time” aired and I AM STILL NOT OKAY. God, it absolutely shattered me (in a good way) so I’ve been liking every damn piece of Bill/Frank fanart that’s crossed any of my dashboards, my gosh it’s all so well done and I’m so glad that episode has become so beloved in the space of less than a month!
Here’s my favourites, get ready to cry or perhaps happy-cry:
Oh my gosh, this one makes me think of Animal Crossing, what an AU that would be:
This one absolutely ruined me:
I think this one might be my favourite of all the favourites. God, it’s beautiful:
I’m ill :( I got the seasonal cold I managed to avoid for three years. But in lighter news I discovered my phone’s slow-mo feature and took this video in Leicester town center (which is probably where I got the cold from.)
God, The Last Of Us puts fear in me like nothing else. The opening scene from the second episode of the show has been haunting me all day and caused me to google “science behind the last of us” “can mushrooms really do that shit” etc more than once.
Oh good, someone put it on YouTube. INCREDIBLE scene, amazing acting, absolutely terrifying in its realism. (Of course a scientist would act like that. Of course you would go home to be with your family.) Maybe living through a pandemic gives you a different perspective on these things. I’m gonna get a mushroom pizza because my thinking now is “might as well eat them before they eat you.”
Today I learned that someone committed suicide by jumping from a window of the apartment building I used to live in. (It made the local news, so that’s how I know.) Hit home a little bit, obviously, not just because of the building but because of the massive mental health crisis I went through myself last year.
Nowadays whenever I write a piece of fiction that involves suicide I try to add a list of worldwide suicide hotlines somewhere in the notes. The best one I’ve seen is Wikipedia’s list, which is extremely in-depth and sorts everything neatly by country. I think that’s the one I’m gonna stick with.
