Day 11. A fic that changed your perceptions of the characters

And Many More by [livejournal.com profile] the_dala (Star Trex XI, James Kirk gen)

The wounded side of James T. Kirk. Very short, but all the same heartbreaking.

Day 12. A fic with excellent banter

Best Way to Fall Asleep after the Match by [livejournal.com profile] darrus (Football RPS, Matthäus/Klinsmann)

This is written in very simple English (due to English being the author's second language), but the playful and flirty wit still shines through. I had a blast translating it. Milan by the same author (indeed in the same series) has similar qualities.

Day 13. A fic you liked when you were younger

无关幸福 by semon (HunterxHunter, Hisoka/Illumi)

For many people, possibly THE definitive Hisoka/Illumi fic in Chinese. This was, of course, before Illumi revealed himself to be a Totally-Not-Tortured Psycho-Soul in the canon. I definitely prefer this new version of Illumi, but I think it’s fair to say very few of us saw it coming.

Back in Amsterdam again, this time with my Kirk Bear. :P Going to the Keukenhof Garden tomorrow...hopefully the raining won't be too bad. After that, Brussels and Bruges yay. (Thinking about a quick run to Haarlem tomorrow too, but I guess it would depend on how hard it's raining by then...)

On the cuisine front: Had some Amsterdam ossenworst—raw beef sausage—and it was really cool. Wonderful spices in them.

Got two AO3 comments on a Mirror K/S story, which prompted me to re-read some of my Star Trek fics. Man, so many good memories....

....and then I remembered that THEY KILLED OFF PIKE in ST:ID.

Just....WHY. WHY. WHY????!!!! HE WAS SUCH AN AWESOME GUY. He didn't have to die! You people already put him into a wheelchair! WHY DID HE HAVE TO DIE WHY!!!!!!
fatima: (st - pon farr)
Was doing my daily Law and Order routine (Season 6 Episode 2) when on screen flashed the name....Guest Star: Anton Yelchin.

(I didn't recognize him before the credits, due to the black eye...)

And then This Happened: )

Why couldn't have his partner been played by John Cho! Why! Whyyyyy!!!!!
fatima: (playful)
Met up with [livejournal.com profile] cipher0099 and watched STID in IMAX for the 3rd time. I still cry at (1) when Sulu tells Spock they aren't gonna abandon ship and (2) The Hand Scene. Man, that IMAX theater next to Lincoln Center is awe~~~~~some, even if a bit more pricy than the rest.

After the movie we went to eat at Totto Ramen in Hell's Kitchen. At 4PM, there was none of the infamous one-hour queue to get in, which suited us very well. The base soup for the ramen was TRULY AMAZING. I almost drank it all. You have to try it some time when it's not dining rush hour, [livejournal.com profile] dissociate! (I also recommended Minca to her, haha.)

[livejournal.com profile] stellary is coming to visit soon, and I will see if we can get 4 fangirls to watch it again. After that, Superman hits the screens, which I suspect [livejournal.com profile] iris242x will be very happy about.

Last but not least, I was lamenting about the icy reception Jekyll and Hyde on Broadway got to [livejournal.com profile] cipher0099, so she suggested that we go see Kinky Boots instead. I googled it and viola, it totally looks like my thing! Now I am excited! :) (PS to [livejournal.com profile] dissociate: It might be your thing, too.)

Star Trek XII: Into Darkness.

Here be spoilers. )

And, because I'm not all that coherent right now, I'll just say this in regard to K&S: This whole movie feels like a K/S fanfic. An EPIC K/S fanfic.

The Original OTP liveth and prosperth!

Thank you, Japanese version of the ST 12 movie trailer so far!

And yes, if that scene is not between Kirk & Spock, I am going to boycott J.J. Abrams forever. And ever.

鸢尾:Jack Frost那个冰杖比吾王的好用多了!
蝴蝶:我就想,if Loki was okay with his Jotun heritage
he would be happy with the things he can create too...
but he's not...

By the way, my favorite character from The Rise of the Guardians is Sandman. He's just sooooo cute!!!! The little tooth fairies and the elves were just adorable, too. Jack Frost was also pretty cool (no pun intended). The thing was, half of the time I was going "OMG Chris Pine Chris Pine Jim Kirk Jim Kirk Jim Kirk". Um, yeah...
fatima: (fss - alecto)
1. ZQ came out. I'm happy for him. Kinda worried about his future career prospect, but we shall see. I rather suspected that his sexuality was already an open secret in the industry—I mean, it was odd from Chris to be getting leading men roles (Jack Ryan!) while ZQ...well, never went anywhere, visibility wise.

2. Watched Sleuth starring Michael Caine & Jude Law with my mom last night as she highly recommended it. I did not expect it to turn so...gay. I have to say, Jude Law does the gay thing very, very well. (To be fair, I think in The Talented Mr. Ripley it was Matt Damon who played the gay guy, not Jude Law...although I keep thinking back to that.) They were both glorious (I mean, Michael Caine! Michael Caine!), though Jude had the dazzle and allure of youth on his side. I'm just kinda shocked that my mom liked it. I mean, the last 10 minutes were clearly, well, gay.

3. Reading Snuff. Having mixed feelings about Sybil now, I have to say. I feel like pTerry is trying to make her into this perfect woman but she's....too distant for me to love her, really. I'd take Angua or Cheery (or even Juliet) any day of the week. And there's that nob thing. It's like, you either make a clean break from it (a la Angua) or you don't. You don't get to stay a nob and pretend to yourself that you are all benevolent and thus above it all. It's....dishonest. And stupid.

4. Also started reading Monstrous Regiment a while ago. Man, I like vampires. Maladict. Oh, Maladict. Even though I'm already kinda spoiled the ending for myself, I still have to say.... I like vampires.

Starting tomorrow, AMC will be showing IMAX versions of ST: XI, Inception, and F&F: 5 in selected theatres (for $7, no less).

Show times and places are here:

I AM SO HAPPY!!! Thanks for the link [livejournal.com profile] cipher0099!!!!

Is it because Spock is, according to fanon, also a lover of chocolate?

William Shatner does (a certain rendition of) O Canada and kills with pure adorableness.

Oh, Bill. ♥ ♥ ♥

Thank you for giving us Bill, Canada! You are fabulous.

(It just occured to me that I've visited both cities where Bill & Len grew up in—Montreal and Boston! Oh yeah~)

Some of the texts I sent to [livejournal.com profile] ligeia last year.

3/9: I am wholly convinced that all K/S stories end happily. If one is not, it only means it is not the real ending.

3/26: Oh there look, Dukat just kicked the bucket.
(I was at a B&N reading a mirrorverse novel in which Dukat and Kira were FREEDOM FIGHTERS together while Julian was a Child of Khan, it was such awesomesauce, except for the absence of Garak.)

3/29: Tribble sex is teh bomb!
([livejournal.com profile] ligeia was telling me how the audiofic makes the tribble interaction sounds even filthier.)

4/29: Never thought I'd be writing transsexual porn in a high school French class.
(No, you can't read it.)

4/30: Thinking about a trip to North Africa. I blame Siddig like woah.
(I still do.)

5/2: On subway somebody played Quizas Quizas Quizas aka the Garak/Bashir song. It was so beautiful! *_*
(I couldn't sing along though because I only vaguely knew the Spanish lyrics.)

5/5: Writing ridiculously sappy young!S/I fic now. So going to hell.

5/7: Still can't get over master!Saladin and pet!Nasir. So, so going to hell.
(Yeah. Obviously.)
fatima: (spn - claire!castiel)
Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] aazaieaa, without whom this trip would not have happened.

Kirk and Spock, at Ellis Island. I'm kinda surprised [livejournal.com profile] aazaieaa and I didn't get thrown out for taking this.... (Oh and the museum on Ellis Island was EXACTLY the same as it was 10 years ago, at least the first floor.)

Spock: Please explain why do you think you are qualified to immigrate to Vulcan.

Kirk: ....I has a lirpa?

A few more none-bear ones. )
fatima: (sherlock)
1. OMG [livejournal.com profile] aprilleigh24 I GOT YOUR CARD!!! IT IS AWESOME! Like, I literally "wow"ed. And it was a very long "WOW". I am completely in awe. Thank you so, so, so so MUCH. >_< You should post this somewhere to share with the rest of the fandom! Now I see why you almost kept it for yourself, hahaha. (And I will send the WIPs soon, I promise.)

2. 荔枝同志,我在看时间线。于是《候鸟》是啥东西?

3. Mimi你的卡也到了~~~太可爱了,那些雨伞!!>0< 还有阿里山的卡~~谢谢!!(为啥台湾MM们的字都这么可爱呢……反观我手上某些人的那些卡,啧啧,那叫一个龙飞凤舞啊。)

4. 大家的卡都应该到了,除了格子和烟花的。orz 明天去寄。然而这两人真的收到过我的卡吗……这是一个问题………………

5. 拐骗(?)了[livejournal.com profile] stellacy去翻译那篇我们都爱得不行的《Library》,于是继续欠债,那里面的那两个人啊。>_< 真*腹黑和真*傲娇在面对彼此的时候有一瞬的战栗,一瞬的投降……和BW里面的那种关系大不相同,但还是把我萌到要死。(虽然萌到要死的后果是直想写渣M……)

蝴蝶:我每次看到有人说小夏是high functioning sociopath就很烦
蝴蝶:要说high functioning sociopath,哥靠谱多了
