I’m considering asking for three character designs (The Impala, Cas, and Winchesters? Throw Bobby in there w/ Cas or the bros? BUT WHAT ABOUT DEATH?) BUT the other posters I have (Sherlock & DWho) are all posters for specific EPISODES.
So maybe I’ll just pick 3 episodes that focus on those three? Or maybe a couple good episodes for reference if Christian’s never actually seen Supernatural?
The Impala: “Swan Song”
Castiel: I want to say “Lazarus Rising” just b/c of his entrance, but maybe “Point of No Return”? He’s super BAMF in that one. Or should I go for “The Man Who Would be King” because it’s heartbreaking & Cas does a lovely little summary at the beginning?
I don’t know what the last one should be.
Maybe I should just ask him to do a Ghost Facers, Changing Channels, and French Connection trio.
I definitely think Man Who Would be King is the way to go in regards to Cas.
Maybe the episode where they’re going through their memories for Sam & Dean? When they’re in heaven?
CLICK ON THE LINK & Ignore the times, this is purely to check out which DATE will be best for everyone. I’ll deal with specific times next.
Just make sure you select your timezone from the drop-down menu at the upper right-hand corner above the poll. (all posts will be tagged w/ “sherlock drinking party” & the stuff from the first drinking party should be there too)
LET ME KNOW IF I FUCKED UP ON THE POLL.
And just for clarification (because I’ve gotten a few messages asking) anyone is welcome. While I do generally mean “Drinking Party” in the “let’s get fucking wasted and cry about Reichenbach” sort of way, it can also mean “I’m going to drink tea and be the designated driver”.
Because Designated Drivers are my heroes.
ALSO THIS PARTY IS ON THE INTERNET.
Sorry, where is it going to be? Is it like… a livechat?
Whenever I think of Moffat and Gatiss writing Sherlock together I keep imagining them as a couple with wildly different parenting styles. Steven keeps trying to get the fandom to eat its vegetables and be upstanding members of society, whilst Mark gives us sweeties and lets us stay up late.
I’ve averted my forced early graduation panic attack.
All thanks to an impromptu Japanese Minor! Which means I get to spend my last year at Berkeley learning about Japanese Horror films, The Culture of Tea, and Buddhism. Really, this should’ve been such an obvious solution since I already had plans to do a refresher course on Japanese this summer (since I didn’t take it this year) in order to jump back into upperdiv Japanese in Fall.
ALSO. I’m taking Northeast Asian Politics for my Political Economy concentration (which I switched from globalization -> late industrialization) AND LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THE PROFESSOR I’M GOING TO HAVE(according to ratemyprof):
"He’s great w/ Japanese policy/government and covering topics re: new democracies. And yes, he the hottest prof. I’ve had at Cal. I took two of his classes, partly b/c of the subject matter and partly b/c hes fun to look at."
"Vogel is amazingly hot. I actually recommend you don’t take the class because it’s easy to become distracted by his looks and forgetful of what he’s saying. With that said, you’ve been warned!"
"1) Best looking professor I’ve had at Cal. 2) Remembers your name (even tho I went to class less than 5 x). 3) Interesting context."
"Best class I’ve taken. The design of the course (readings, lectures, and sequencing) was brilliant. […]I don’t like to think of my professors as hot, but since it’s already been pointed out, I’d have to concur"
“An earlier version of this post misquoted Mr. Remnick on his comparison between the book and a New Yorker article he had previously written. He said the book would not be a “pumped up” version of the article; he did not say that it would not be a “pimped out” version of the article.”—
Why I decided to go from としょかんライオン (which is basically a picture book) straight into ハリーポッターとアズカバンの囚人 I’ve no idea.
Then again, I got ‘Harrius Potter et Philosophi Lapis’ years ago. Why I thought it’d be exciting to try to read a book in Latin when it uses a bunch of fake Latin already, is also a mystery.
Except not really. Because I’d pretty much buy Harry Potter in every language I have any background in (regardless of how very little & unusable) simply for the novelty of it. Guess I’d better keep an eye out for French and Tagalog now.
Went out to eat Chinese food with the family the other night. I have this ‘process’ when it comes to my fortune cookie. I crack it in half, pull it apart, eat the half the fortune didn’t stay in, read my fortune, and then eat the last half. I’ve gotten a lot of fortunes about how I’ll spend my life travelling. They made me happy. I was expecting something similar this time, but instead I got:
And it sent chills up my spine as though something was standing behind me.
&then I realized that my brain had registered my fortune to mean, instead of comforting advice, Don’t Blink.
Which, honestly, would have been much more amazing.
That being said, maybe I should actually write these two 5 page papers I have due on Thursday. Also I have to do my Demography problem set. Yay for spending hours looking up data on the census website!
