calvinahobbes: Calvin and Hobbes watching tv (calvintv)
[personal profile] calvinahobbes
I watched Anne With An E, and I absolutely loathed it. I watched the whole thing, because I accidentally started it with my mom, who kept insisting it might become better (it didn't) or, later, might be a decent show if we pretended it had nothing to do with Anne of Green Gables (nope).

The production value is great - I was able to enjoy the costumes and set designs and authentic food, although eventually it became weird how the characters were constantly eating or cooking. The problem with this show is that it is REALLY BAD fanfic. Jerry Boute is made a major character, and from episode 1 it's obvious that Moira Walley-Beckett is trying to set him up as a romantic interest, for absolutely no fathomable reason. Maybe she wants to emphasise the French presence in Canada by foregrounding one of the only French-Canadian characters in the book??

I might easily be able to forgive a change like that, but it proved to be a foreboding of how Beckett approaches canon: imagine her just gleefully tearing up the original books and tossing them across the room. Again, if she changed things with some sense of respect for the originals, in an endeavour to make the stories more suitable for television, that would not automatically be a problem. But Beckett seems to inexplicably think that L.M. Montgomery's original novels were boring and devoid of plot, so she freely invents conflicts and challenges that never would have belonged in quiet Avonlea. This short first season (first? I hope last and only!) contains: a dramatic horse racing scene, a cliff-hanger, a pedo!threat, a housefire, the death of a major side-character, the attempted suicide (WTAF I could scream!) of a major character... and these are just the ones I can mention without really spoiling the plot. So. Many. Unnecessary. Changes!

The actors are very good, not least Amybeth McNulty who plays Anne with an impressive amount of talent - she's the perfect fit - and she does an admirable job of acting out Anne's verbosity, mood-swings, and many many honest-to-god anxiety attacks and flashbacks because this is a "psychologically realistic" production, apparently. But the actors can't save the atrociously melodramatic plot, or the fact that this has very, very little to do with Anne of Green Gables. I hate it! Don't bother with it!

(This review by Sarah Larson is good and only a bit more spoilery than mine.)

I wonder when we'll actually get some proper summer around here. (With my luck, in mid august.)

What I've recently finished reading

Rob Rogers: Devil's Cape

I very much enjoyed this novel - it's well-written, the setting of Devil's Cape, with its pirate past and supervillain and mobster present, is nice, and the main villains were well done, even if evil carneval freaks are perhaps too far on the wrong side of the cliché.

On the other hand, it really annoys me that this novel is basically just an origin story for three superheroes - Doctor Camelot, a legacy hero with an Iron Man-like suit and a cause to avenge the death of her father and his team, Argonaut, with mystical powers of the flight and strength and nearly invulnerable set and a twin brother with the same powers and a supervillain mindset, and Bedlam, the psyciatrist with a past as a teenage gangbanger and a curse that turns him into a devil-like creature. I mean, they are perfectly fine heroes - though the novel's attempt at making at least two of them "dark and mysterious" kinda falls flat - it's not particularly tied to the dark side of town to have been a spectacularly stupid teenage who has since reformed, or to be related to mobsters on your Uncle's side.

Also, since it is an origin story, I found them defeating the supervillain group that were twice as big as them, which had years of experience ahead of them and which had succeeded in killing an experenced superhero team - I found that it violated my suspension of disbelief. Especially since it was the new superhero team's first outing and they'd just managed to nearly have their asses kicked by a single minor supervillain.

Of course, the most annoying thing is that the story is so very clearly an origin story for the new superhero team, and look, the main supervillain is being shady in the shadows, and there's not even a hint anywhere of a sequel. I mean, there seems to be a few short stories around, but a novel? Nope.

Lidenskab og lysår

There was quite a few good stories in this anthology, but my favourites? Hmmm. A. Silvestri's I fædrelandets tjeneste is a creepy bit of Earth/alien diplomacy, Helle Perrier's DreamChild is an equally creepy tale of pregnancy in the future, and then there's Bjarke Schjødt Larsen's Den danske kulturskat, a story about a Denmark where everybody has to be "cultured" or face the consequences. I can't quite figure out if it's a right wing wet dream (since it is reads like it might be all about Danish culture) or a right wing nightmare (since clearly only a left wing government would be that intrusive and evil as to take away normal people's kids if they fail at having given them enough culture).

What I'm reading now

M.D. Lachlan's Lord of Slaughter, which is vikings and werewolves in Constantinople (well, I'm sure the werewolves will happen at some point), and Francesca Coppa's The Fanfiction Reader, which I'm wondering if [personal profile] lysanatt has opinions about?

What I'm reading next

Hmmm. Maybe I'll tell you next week

So - on August the 5th Fisketorvet is going to be hosting one of the Pokemon GO Safari Zone events, where you will be able to have: "the opportunity to catch a wide variety of Pokémon in special zones featuring Pokémon originally encountered in the Kanto and Johto regions, including some Pokémon never before encountered in Europe! Additionally, Trainers in attendance will join forces to take on unique and powerful Raid Bosses that will be making appearances at these events."

Apparently, you'll need to register on site.

I mean, I don't even know if any of you are still playing this silly game, but if anybody does - a few hours of wandering Fisketorvet and maybe dinner/lunch and/or a movie, if anything good is on - would anybody be interested?

On Monday, because we don't know how to slow down ;) - we went out to Paignton Zoo - and zoo trips ALWAYS mean a ton of pictures to get through afterwards *g*

Under the cut are some of the pictures and at the bottom of the post is the link to the full album on flickr.com - I have to admit, that I managed to cook it all down to 136 pictures in the album, where I came back from the trip with a good 600-700 pictures. It's what always happens - I get carried away ;)

We drove from just outside Tavistock, across Dartmoor to Paignton - along the way hoping to see Dartmoor ponies (wild ponies) and we got more than we'd bargained for - ended up behind a car with one of the ponies trotting along the road, not really able to get off it, but not really giving a toss about there being several cars behind it.

[personal profile] isis
The second annual Multifandom Drabble Exchange ([community profile] multifandomdrabble) went live yesterday, and I received a gift and a treat:

Summer turns towards Autumn by [archiveofourown.org profile] weakinteraction - The Man in the High Castle (TV), Tagomi and Juliana post-S2. I do wonder what is going to happen in S3 when they eventually meet again, and this is a lovely teaser!

The Visitor by [archiveofourown.org profile] Alona - The Divine Cities series by Robert Jackson Bennett, Mulaghesh gen. I prompted "accidental kitten acquisition" and this made me smile because it's so in character.

I was assigned to write for [archiveofourown.org profile] st_aurafina:

A New Hobby - Lord John series by Diana Gabaldon, Lord John/Stephan von Namtzen (okay, it's really gen, but) in a stealth fusion with an undisclosed fandom. Lord John Grey visits Waldesruh again, and learns about Stephan von Namtzen's latest obsession.

I also wrote a bunch of treats (all G-rated):

Saucy Wench - Hot Sauces (Anthropomorphic), Cholula/ Tapatío - There's a new girl on the shelf.

My Sin - due South (TV), Frannie Vecchio/Maggie McKenzie - Licking the evidence runs in the family.

Fire - Frontier Wolf by Rosemary Sutcliff, Teleri(/Connla) - Everyone in the village said they should wed, with their matching crowns of fiery hair.

The Bicycle Rule - The Giver by Lois Lowry, The Receiver gen - It was one of the few rules that was not taken very seriously and was almost always broken. (The Giver, chapter 2.)

One More Earthly Pleasure - The Witcher 3 videogame (actually for the DLC Hearts of Stone), Shani and Vlodimir - In which Gaunter O'Dimm doesn't banish Vlodimir at midnight.

Aboard the Psi-Ship Foxway - The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater, gen - 300 Fox Way IN SPAAACE.

Here are links to the main collection and the treats - a lot of tasty bite-sized fandom bits to sample. My favorite so far unfortunately points up the problem with drabbles - that they are so tiny and can only tell a very limited story - because it's a drabble sequence and therefore encompasses a lot more story than a single 100-word chunk can tell. But it's really amazing:

Dear AU Exchange Writer

[personal profile] oneiriad
First of all, I want to say thank you for writing for me. :-)

I must admit, I was very excited when I stumbled across a mention of the AU Exchange and went looking to see if it was what it sounded like - and it was! I am very fond of good AUs, both of the completely different setting type* and of the this-small-thing-was-different-and-here-are-the-repercussions type. I am very much looking forward to seeing all the fic that's going to come of this exchange.

*well, except coffee shop and high school AUs, which I must shamefully admit I've never seen the point of.

Right, a few general likes and dislikes in fic before we get to fandoms.

Things I generally like in fic: slash and gen; plot; snark; fluff; banter; happy endings; awesome characters being awesome; crack; twisty plots; surprises.
Dislikes & squicks: non-con; a/b/o, seme/uke, sub/dom and any and all similar power dynamic tropes; very kinky sex (heavy bdsm, watersport, etc.); underage; kidfic; bestiality; mpreg; pwp; genderswap; incest; OC love interests.

If you're the type that likes to stalk your recipient I'd recommend taking a look at my tumblr.

And now - the fandoms:

MCU and TV )

DC Comics )

Sanctuary )

Sense8 )

Heading south after stopping for the night in Crewe, we decided to deviate from our course towards Cornwall and Devon. The detour? Stonehenge - because we both have it on the list of places we'd like to actually see for real.

So, Saturday morning we set out and we hit it in the middle of heat of the day - early afternoon. Waiting in line was a killer - sweat dripping and nothing to block off the sun. Well worth it though ;) - We took turns to leave the queue for the tickets to stand in the shade and breeze at the building. Included in the ticket is thankfully a short bus trip up to Stonehenge itself. And oddly enough, because they don't allow people too close, due to the layout, I managed to get pictures without people in it.

17776

[personal profile] isis
I followed a rec from [personal profile] vass in a comment to a post at [personal profile] jamethiel and hply sjot, I have fallen down a rabbit hole! I had seen references to 17776 at ffa but ignored them, because once I realized it wasn't a typo for the musical it turned out to be a multimedia web thingy about football, which is not something I'm interested in.

But it's not about football. Well, I suppose it is, on some level, but it's Calvinball-football, something called football that has one toe still in the contemporary game but "now", in the far far post-quasi-apocalyptic future, is mostly an outrageously inventive pastime for bored immortals, which we are shown through commentary by old spacecraft which have now achieved sentience, including one who has just "awoken" and so has to have everything explained to it by the others.

It is a WIP, apparently updated daily. I am not sure how much is out or how far along I am, but I just finished the Page, Arizona chapter, in which opposing teams become trapped in a canyon with sheer walls and continue battling for thousands of years. (I have been there in real life! I am amused!)

Next week I'll post on time. Next week. Maybe.

Not much news around here anyway. Starting to get the stuff I'll need to get before my summer vacation together. Working - at a university library during the summer slump - but the delivery guy seems to have mixed up mine and Spain's deliveries, so they got all of my sun and we're getting their shade, so it's not even that attractive to flex out early and head home.

What I've recently finished reading

Gene Wolfe: A Borrowed Man
I liked the premise of this book - a somewhat dystopic future where libraries does not just contain books (on any medium you'd like), but also clone copies of authors - and then the plot if basically a crime noir, except the femme fatale checks out the clone of the mystery writer/detective. It's just - I don't know if it's the crime noir plot or if it's just that Gene Wolfe is not exactly a young man anymore, it's just - I can't believe that this was published in 2015. Or that anybody would nominate it for an award. It feels like something that might have gotten published in the 80s. The sf elements - the clones work well enough, but there's not really anything new to that part, and the other sf plot gets treated the way sf elements got treated in really old, dull novels (ie. never explained how and conveniently lost by the end of the book). But mostly, it's the gender dynamics of the entire novel that just - annoys me. This is supposed to be the future and everybody feels like somebody who just stepped out of the 50s or something (of course the mystery writer was a man, of course his ex-wife was a very literary poet, of course - I'm just gonna stop here.) It might have annoyed me less if it had been an exciting read, but it wasn't even that.

Right. End rant.

ONE: One-Punch Man volume 1.
Kinda meh.

Ben Aaronovitch: Rivers of London: Night Witch
This was as entertaining as the first comic - and I must admit, I'm still just as surprised as when I read Body Work. Tie-in comics aren't supposed to be good. It's just weird.

Terry Pratchett & Stephen Baxter: The Long Utopia
Mostly Stephen Baxter, I suspect. I know there's just one more book in this series, but frankly? I think I've seen enough. It just feels - rinse and repeat? Yet another new species discovered in the Long Earth, once again Joshua and Sally and Lobsang to the rescue of humanity. Besides, this novel was a mess of plotlines - Stan the Next (who is suddenly a new Messiah?), the Waltzers and the whole beetle thing - and I do not feel that they got tied well together in the end.

Bernard Cornwell: Warriors of the Storm
Well - at least Cornwell has finally stopped starting the story with having Uhtred lose all he'd won in the previous novel? It's a nice relaxing read - invading viking army vs. Saxons with a few Irish people on the side (and I wonder if the tv show will ever make it far enough for me to get to see Uhtred visiting his son-in-law - probably not.) (Which reminds me - I've still got most of season 2 left to watch).

What I'm reading now

Rob Roger's The Devil's Cape, which lives somewhere in the dark age of superhero stories, and the anthology Lidenskab og lysår.

What I'm reading next

Maybe I should just start skipping this question. Half the time I get it wrong anyway.

Total number of books and comics read this year: 121

What I've recently finished reading:

Assassin's Fate by Robin Hobb - I liked the story, appreciated the way the ending called back to other elements of the series (and felt it a solid, satisfying ending), but I am not sure why this book didn't resonate emotionally with me. Perhaps it's because having read the series over such a long span of time, the characters' lives are less fresh and compelling to me. Perhaps it's because this book's ambitious scope in tying together not just the final trilogy but all the Realms of the Elderlings sub-series required so many sub-plots that it seemed an overwhelming brick with too many diversions. I enjoyed reading it, as I enjoyed most of the series (Rain Wilds, ugh) but toward the end I was feeling as though it was more a chore than a delight, and I'm glad I'm finished.

The Magpie Lord by K. J. Charles - Better than the average m/m novel, but that's a low bar. The magic is interesting (and the best part of the book); the plotting is pretty good, though the ending is a bit abrupt, with a sudden influx of new characters whose villainy could have been set up better through the narrative; the romance is all right, though a bit too heavy on the size-difference kink for my taste. I'm not particularly inclined to seek out the rest of the series, though I have to say I'm intrigued by Stephen's partner Esther, who was mentioned but didn't actually appear in the story.

Dungeons & Dreamers: A Story of how Computer Games Created a Global Community by Brad King and John Borland - This readable, engaging book traces the development of multi-user computer games and non-game shared social spaces (such as Second Life) from their roots in tabletop gaming and D&D, through text adventure and then graphic action/adventure games, to current (as of writing, which is not current at all) massively networked games. I found the early chapters particularly interesting because I, too, was a D&D geek and gamer in the late 70s/early 80s (though I drifted away after early graphical games such as Spacewar, and text games Zork and Advent and their progeny); it was like reading the book equivalent of the TV series Halt and Catch Fire, the underlying stories of things which I experienced as a casual user at the time.

There is certainly more focus on certain people and game companies than others, but this doesn't purport to be a complete history of games and gaming. Instead this focus (which wavers at times, admittedly) serves to build the thesis that (most) people like narrative and social interactions, even while killing monsters. I think it's a reasonable view, though perhaps it leaves out the meta aspect of people who like to play single-player games (which I imagine are the majority of games available) but who then congregate on Reddit and other forums to share their experiences and screenshots. Anyway, recommended if you have an interest in this sort of thing.

What I'm reading now:

Right now I'm down to my audiobook, Plus One by Elizabeth Fama, which I am a little more than halfway through. I'm finding it surprisingly interesting and enjoyable for YA dystopian SF. I mentioned last week that I thought I'd read a short story with a similar premise, of people split into night people and day people, and while browsing the Goodreads reviews I saw one person mention that it was sort of based on a book called The Day Boy and the Night Girl, which is an 1882 fairy tale novel by George MacDonald. I checked it out on Wikipedia and while it sounds interesting, it's not the story I was thinking of.

What I'm reading next:

I might have to read the fourth Expanse book, because B keeps blathering about the books while we watch the show. He also has been reading the Wayward Pines books and thinks I should read them. (The author is a friend of a friend.) I have some various random stuff in ebook I ought to read sometime, things I've downloaded through Instafreebie (though so far I have not been impressed), through the Tor free ebook series, and through other promotions.

What I'm watching now:

We are 6/10 through S2 of The Expanse! It is weird to me how the TV seasons don't match up with the books very well. The things I think of as being the important stuff that happened in the second book have not even occurred yet (well, one of them finally did in E6). What a pretty show, though.

What I'm watching next:

I heard a rumor that Winter is Coming. Huh, looks like summer to me.

I didn't sign up, but I looked through the collection to read stories in fandoms I know, and there are three that are really quite good and you should read them, too, if you know these fandoms:

Good and Bad Alike (We Keep Meeting) (1609 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] sevendeadlyfun

Fandom: Hamilton - Miranda
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Characters: Thomas Jefferson, Angelica Schuyler
Summary: He does not meet her at Versailles. No one, the Duc D’Orlean proclaims, meets anyone at Versailles. Angelica and Jefferson meet in Paris. They part in America.

I love the historical details, and Angelica comes alive here as the central character in her own story.

Peat Smoke Rising (3065 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] feroxargentea
Fandom: The Eagle of the Ninth - Rosemary Sutcliff, The Eagle | The Eagle of the Ninth - All Media Types
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Marcus Flavius Aquila/Esca Mac Cunoval
Characters: Esca Mac Cunoval, Marcus Flavius Aquila
Additional Tags: book canon, Missing Scene, Wilderness, Hiking, Hurt/Comfort, Sharing Body Heat, canonically ambiguous relationship
Summary: \Peat smoke rising. Two worlds entwined.

I really like this gentle story; the language evokes the book-language without feeling like pastiche, with lovely Sutcliffian scenery and descriptive details.

strawberries and sunlight (3252 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] polkadot
Fandom: Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Catherine Bennet/Georgiana Darcy
Characters: Catherine Bennet, Georgiana Darcy
Additional Tags: Falling In Love, Flirting, Declarations Of Love
Summary: It was some four months since Kitty had come to stay at Pemberley, when she found to her great astonishment that she had not thought of young officers in a fortnight.

Kitty's slow maturity as she moves away from Lydia's orbit to Georgiana's, and then her examination of that change in herself, is lovely to see. And Georgiana's obviously blossoming here as well, from the shy and withdrawn girl in the novel to someone who has found what she wants and is patiently waiting for Kitty to figure it out. This is probably my favorite of the stories I read from this fest.

Final schedule for Yuletide 2017


Nominations Friday Sept 8 - Saturday Sept 16
Sign-ups Sunday Oct 1 - Monday Oct 9
Assignments out by Sunday Oct 15
Default deadline Monday Dec 11
Assignment deadline Monday Dec 18

Please note that this is a week earlier than the draft schedule we previously posted.

New Year’s Resolutions notification


If you took part in Yuletide and defaulted after the default deadline, or you submitted an incomplete story at the posting deadline, or you defaulted in Yuletide twice in a row, we ask you to complete a New Year’s Resolution story before you sign up again.

We have just sent an email to everyone who was added to our NYR list after Yuletide 2016. We don’t want you to get to Yuletide 2017, try to sign up, and realise at this late juncture that you are under a restriction.

The email we use is the one currently associated with your AO3 account. If you have any doubt about whether you fulfilled the Yuletide challenge last year, please check your AO3 account details to see what email address the message was sent to. It’s also possible that our message has gone to your spam folder.

You are welcome to comment here or to email yuletideadmin@gmail.com and ask if you are on the list of people who need to complete a New Year’s Resolution fic.

If you defaulted in a previous year, you may still be on our NYR list.

More information about New Year’s Resolutions


New Year’s Resolution fics written for the purpose of re-qualifying for Yuletide must be posted to the New Year's Resolutions 2017 collection before you sign up to Yuletide 2017. They must be over 1,000 words and written to a previous Yuletide prompt. You can write for a Yuletide 2016 prompt, or you can choose an older Yuletide prompt as long as the fandom in which you write is small enough to still qualify for Yuletide (that is: when adding the total fics on AO3 and ff.net, there are fewer than 1,000 fics that are in English, complete, and over 1,000 words long).

The New Year’s Resolution system exists for several reasons:
  • It's an incentive to encourage people either to default early, or, to push on through and post something

  • It works as a warm-up, or as practice, or as a way of proving to yourself you can finish a story to a prompt

  • It's a contribution to the project of getting more stories written in tiny fandoms

  • It's a way of ensuring that past prompts don't get entirely forgotten.


If you had to default in a past year, we are aware that this may have been for a carefully-considered reason or in a difficult time. Needing to complete a NYR does not mean we think you're a terrible person. We hope you use it as an opportunity to write something you enjoy.

You are also welcome to submit a NYR story if you just feel like writing one! The collection will stay open for late fills until Yuletide 2017 assignments are sent out.

Writers are especially encouraged to write stories for prompts that were not filled during the main Yuletide run.
