I cried pretty much through the entirety of episode 10. Those poor sweet beautiful broken darlings!

I suspect I'm going to finish it this weekend (but not tonight; that would be excessive, and I already have a headache from all the crying).

I've fallen down the rabbit hole that is Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo, and I don't want to come out!

OMG, this show is adorable. The main character is a weightlifter at a sports university, who is mostly very happy being a bull-headed hot-tempered jock, until one fateful day when plot spoilers happen )

I'm about halfway through. Events have transpired, and more spoilers )

I just. Bok Joo is giving me so many feels. She's about as lacking in EQ and self-awareness as Go Mi Nam from You're Beautiful (that is a wild overstatement; NO ONE is as clueless and un-self-aware as Go Mi Nam!), but seeing her grapple with not being traditionally feminine and the way everyone treats her like a hefferlump, and her humiliation at knowing she's being ridiculous leading her double life but she can't help it, and the moments of pure happiness she grabs whenever she can... is all hitting me pretty hard. *snuggles her heartbroken and befuddled self*

Also, the love interest is somehow awful and utterly adorable at the same time. I don't know how he's managing it, but I have high hopes that he will eventually soon realise how awful the awfulness is and make amends. He's getting there.


ION, I've rented the first disk of Black Sails, having decided to give it another try after bouncing off the pilot a couple of years(?) ago and since hearing many people squee. The warnings on the case include sexual violence; can anyone advise: how graphic is the non-con? Like, is it going to squick me and stick in my head for days? Does it happen to main/POV characters? /o\

IOON, we watched the pilot of You Me Her last night, and it was great. I'm looking forward to more.

Invented by [personal profile] lunabee34: Tell me about the episode (or book chapter) that never appeared in one of your fandoms but should have.


White Collar: Neal is knocked unconscious during a case, cue Prohibition-era noir episode with singing, saxophones and threesome subtext, a la Moonlighting's "The Dream Sequence Always Rings Twice."

White Collar: Peter and Neal are captured and held in a confined space. Very confined. El, Mozzie and June work together to rescue them (with Diana and Clinton helping in the background).

Battle Creek: All of season 2.

Agent Carter: All of season 3.

Captain America: A Falcon movie, with the breezy tone of Ant-Man and Spider-Man. Basically, I want (more of) a Sam/Steve romcom. ;-P

I wrote a few drabble treats for the Multifandom Drabble Exchange:

1. Shining how we want - Steve Rogers/Sam Wilson, Shortest fake relationship ever.

2. Back it up and do it again - Neal Caffrey/Clinton Jones, The first time was a ruse.

3. Does it almost feel like you've been here before - time traveller/time traveller, The portal whines alarmingly.


And I've read lots of great ones (there went my morning!), but this is my favourite so far:

Pets by [archiveofourown.org profile] lirin - Neal & Satchmo, How can anybody be exasperated around a dog like this?


ION, yay new Doctor!

Yesterday I finished Dal Ja's Spring with my teacher, and Imaginary Cat, which was a solo watch.

Dal Ja's Spring was charming, slightly dated and, as is the way with noona romances, eventually managed to side-step the heavy pressure on the woman to get married. (Its ending was reminiscent of several other noona romances I've seen, actually, which makes me wonder how influential it was.) It had some lovely friendships and was kind to even the less sympathetic characters. It did drag slightly toward the end, but the main reason I won't be rewatching is technical: glitchy files and out-of-sync subtitles in some episodes, which I could work around but it's a pain.

Imaginary Cat was a short, 8-episode thing about an aspiring web cartoonist and his beloved cat (we could hear the cat's thoughts; he couldn't), which should have been charming but was mostly dull. The story beats were clunky, cartooning is not particularly interesting to watch, and spoiler ). If it hadn't been so short, I would have given up about halfway through, but my completionist tendencies drove me on.

Next up, Chief Kim (with my teacher) and Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo (on my own).


In offline not-really-news, today has been wonderful. After three days of unrelenting sleety-rainy gales, today there was surprise sunshine, and our favourite outdoor public pool (heated) was open this morning so the boy and I swam in the gently steaming water, and it felt like an adventure, especially after being bundled in multiple layers of merino for so long. The concrete pool surrounds were freezing under my bare toes, but once I got in it was lovely and I had a lane to myself.

Then we had brunch at Floriditas and shared a brioche. Life is good.
