Pretty Guardian Sailormoon: Act 8 (PGSM 8)Awwww. We’re not actually doing the Usagi is rabbit-shape Sailormoon is moon-shape? I am disappoint. I liked that idea.

Anyway! Last episode, Mamoru learned Sailormoon’s identity, I still can’t settle on spelling and names, Usagi learned that Motoki is not Tuxedo Mask, and the senshi are introduced to the Dark Kingdom. Or at least to Jadeite. Onwards! To spoils and spoilers!

Once upon a Time 9 Wrap-up

Banner for Once Upon A Time IXOnce more, Carl’s Once Upon A Time challenge/event has come to a close for the year.

From March the 21st until June the 21st, the whole of my reading has been all about the fantastical. Myths, fairytales, folklore, straight-up fantasy…

Which, I’ll grant, isn’t really anything particularly new for my reading habits, but the period feels different and more special because of the larger sense of community and companionship that comes with the event.

So there’s that. ^_^ Which sounds more negative than I mean it, but in my defense it’s been a bad week for my energy levels and as I’m writing this I have somehow managed to catch barely any sleep at all. (Actually, I know exactly how, but I don’t want to be grumpy all over my blog. But I am grumpy! Anyway!)

I tried to make my months a mixture of media and I think I succeeded pretty decently. I’ve been a little conservative in my counting on the review site, having excluded the Sailor Moon Crystal and Pretty Guardian Sailormoon episode commentaries because I would have been running those anyway. But pretty much everything else goes and I will be including them in this post.

Least favourite classic? Why?

Thoughts. The text 'rambling thoughts' underneath a burning lantern. For rambles, thoughts, and not-essays.

A while ago — actually, a pretty long time in blogging and internet terms — Lynn from Lynn’s Books put up a classic book-themed meme. Since I was looking for questions to natter about at the time (you’re still more than welcome to ask them!), I decided to just nab the whole meme and work through the questions point by point. (Except for the time-specific ones like “What are you reading at the moment?” because scheduling that in advance is silly.)

So! Without further ado.

Pretty Guardian Sailormoon: Act 7 (PGSM 7)Welcome back to the seventh instalment of “Let’s Rewatch Pretty Guardian Sailormoon”! Last week, we were introduced to the final senshi of Sailor Jupiter (the show suggests) and this week we’ll be looking into the possibility that Sailor V is actually the Princess that they’re looking for.

Notice that the introductory discussion is now shaped like a moon to indicate that Usagi’s transformed. Anyway! To episode 7!

Film Talk: Sailor Moon Crystal, Episode 23

Sailor Moon Crystal: Act 23, Covert Maneuvres, WisemanPlot Recap: Sailor Moon, Mars, Mercury and Jupiter have all freed themselves from the planet Nemesis! HUZZAH! Mamoru is in deep trouble (again; it seems like the guy just can’t stay out of trouble, doesn’t it?), a new enemy has been introduced and will receive her formal introduction this episode.

Also the ginzuishou may have caused bits of the planet Nemesis to fall apart and crumble into nothingness. But hey our heroines (or heras) are freed by their own hands and the plot moves on.

To episode 23!

Signalboosts

Links. The text 'links' underneath a big, old-fashioned key. Links I felt were interesting.

Hey, look. I’m actually around to signalboost things on time. I’m shocked!

  • Magpie Monday June 2015: This is DW user’s dialecticdreamer’s monthly prompt call. This is the first themed month (unless my memory is playing tricks on me). The prompt call is only open for a day, which is… probably about partway through now, so come leave some prompts on the theme of “Equal does not mean identical!” and get some fantastic fiction!
  • Adam Nimoy is crowdfunding a documentary about his father, Leonard Nimoy. (My thanks to Elizabeth Barrette for the link.)
  • Fellow indie author K.A. Webb has recently updated her website. Go look at the pretty and enjoy the tons of free fiction. She’s in the process of updating tags and categories to make her stories easier to navigate and find what you’re looking for.
  • Here‘s a wonderful article on how to write female characters and how NOT to write them.
  • Lastly, here are the details for the June LGBT Readathon hosted by Faye at A Daydreamer’s Thoughts from June 22nd to June 28th.

And that’s me all linked out. Have fun with the links! ^_^
