? - 1/3/16 | Stephen King | The Dark Tower: The Dark Tower | Wonderful, beautiful book, but Jesus, some of it is pretty damn cruel.

? - 1/6/16 | Stephen King | Under The Dome | Wonderful book, but really disturbing, and I think it's actually applicable to some shit today as well as when it was originally written.

1/12/16 - 1/13/16 | Stephen King | Gerald's Game | Definitely avoid if you're triggered by the subjects it discusses, but it's a wonderful book. Jessie is one of his best female characters, I think.

? - 1/16/16 | Cheryl Rainfield | Scars | Very triggering book, as a warning, but wonderful.

? - 1/27/16 | Stephen King | It | Amazing book. The miniseries, while damn good, does not do it justice.

? - 1/29-16 | Stephen King | Doctor Sleep | Amazing book. Abra definitely makes it, as does Danny Torrance's journey. And the True Knot are awesome villains.

Just saw The Revenant...

...and well...wow. Really good movie, but really fucking intense and disturbing.


Warning for spoilers and possible gory discussion.Collapse )

So overall? It's definitely worth a view. Fair warning, though -- it's pretty depressing.

In Memoriam



Alan Rickman

1946-2016

Good morning, 2016!

Wow. Here's hoping that this year will be a smoother ride than last year -- ah, who am I kidding? Might as well be tempting fate here. Don't get me wrong; last year had a lot of wonderful moments for me, but it also had a lot of rocky parts. Best I can do is treasure the more sedate parts of January while they last.

And in the meanwhile, my New Year's resolutions!

-I will get published. Like, seriously, I should. It's about time. Even if it's just online publishing, I should at least try and get my original fiction out there.

-I will get my thoughts under control. Let's say that last year I had a bit of a mental breakdown as the year progressed. I've been using meditation and such, fortunately, so I can at least have emergency techniques for when things get bad.

-I will focus on school, but not to the point where I have a near-mental-breakdown. Seriously, that was another part of my near-breakdown last year -- stress regarding school.

-I will try to be less of a grumpy old lady in a college student's body.

-I will continue to broaden my horizons.

-I will try to achieve more independence. I'm a grown woman, after all.

-I will (oh dear God) retake Driver's Ed.

-I will, at one point, apply for a job.

-I will try to stay healthy in mind, heart, soul, relationships and body.

Those are my New Year's Resolutions at least. I don't know how good I'll be at keeping them, but they're a good starting point.

So I *finally* saw The Force Awakens...

...and it was good! Really good, actually. I enjoyed it.

A long time ago in a galaxy far far a -- spoilers!Collapse )

So overall? Go see it! Trust me, it's amazing.
In which Mara wraps things up.

Disclaimer: I own nothing.

Author's Notes: Yes, I definitely know that this epilogue's pretty much non-Force-Awakens compliant. I kind of figured it would be. Go here to see my thoughts on the Force Awakens (spoiler alert: it's definitely worth the price of admission).

"Mara Kenobi here."Collapse )
In which friends are reunited.

Disclaimer: I own nothing.

Author's Notes: Hope you like this chapter. It was one of my favorites to write, maybe because of the whole emotional content thing. Had Leia be Queen of New Alderaan thanks to a rejected ROTJ idea that I thought was just awesome. (YMMV, of course)

" "Mara, we"re here.""Collapse )
In which the battle is won.

Disclaimer: I own nothing.

Author's Notes: Hope you like this chapter!

" "You got it!""Collapse )
In which at least one phase of Ventress' plan gets carried out.

Disclaimer: I own nothing.

Author's Notes: Hope everyone had a very good Christmas! Mine went well, aside from some difficulties. And I hope you like this chapter.

" "Now come on, let"s blow this baby to hell.""Collapse )
In which Padme's world is rocked.

Disclaimer: I own nothing.

Author's Notes: Merry Christmas, everyone! (Yes, I know this is a pretty ironic Christmas update, all things considered) Hope everyone's currently having a good one.

" "May the Force be with us.""Collapse )
