holdouttrout: not your ordinary fish (oops)
[personal profile] holdouttrout
This November, I knew I wasn't going to be able to handle NaNoWriMo, so instead i joined [livejournal.com profile] wrisomifu, in which you are only required to write 10 minutes each day. I ALMOST managed writing every single day, and wrote 5,705 words in November.

That's 5,705 more than I could have ever DREAMED I'd have written in only 30 days.

Also, there's a new fic coming--Sam/Jack stupid cute cliche fic, to be precise. It should only be a matter of days before it's posted...

Moving on, yes, I saw Twilight: Breaking Dawn, Part 2. It was awesome. I generally like the movies much more than the books, because the movies take a LOT of the WTF parts right out.

I have to say that, due to the fact that I'd largely forgotten the specifics of the book, and because I'd been warned there was some sort of surprise twist thing, I [SPOILERS] watched the WHOLE fakeout battle scene thinking that it was really happening and that a whole bunch of characters died. No, really, I was apparently that gullible.

Oh, and I guess I didn't actually watch the WHOLE scene, because there was one section where someone started to rip someone else's vampire head apart at the jaw, and I did close my eyes. Look, I'm not terribly squeamish, but:

1) EW.

2) It was probably a terrible-looking effect that would have made me laugh instead of being horrified.

I was pretty disappointed, actually, that the fakeout wasn't real. I should have known it wasn't because you can't kill off that many good guys, and because NO ONE DIES in Twilight who isn't supposed to, but I had some hope the movie would do better. At least we got pretty much the whole battle scene--which included Edward helping Bella take down Aro. No, I just wrote that, and it was true. Edward basically throws Bella at Aro's head, and she pops it off. I mean:

1) Ew.

and 2) LOL.

Still, Edward letting Bella off the leash and apologizing for underestimating her made me like him infinitely more.

Okay, yes, I just wrote that.

Jacob and Renesmee is still super-creepy, though. Also, the movie is still super-cheesy. And creepy, but not in a horror-movie way. Most of the time, anyway.



Guys, there are SO MANY movies I want to see. I think I want to see about half the movies out right this second, and there are more on the way. I don't have time for them all, though.

I think I want to see Argo, Skyfall, Cloud Atlas, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Looper, Life of Pi, Wreck-it Ralph, and Anna Karenina, among others. What am I going to dooooo???

1. A new Sam/Jack fic is exciting.
2. Why are there so many good movies out while I am so busy. I want to see all the movies you listed especially Life of Pi.

2. I don't know! Holidays are the worst, because so many interesting movies are on, and there's so little time to watch them!

I want to see Wallflower, Wreck-it, and Les mis when it comes out. Possibly 3 times. i will probably also end up (somewhat grudgingly) seeing the hobbit.

Aw. Why go and see something you don't really want to see??? Who is coercing you into it?

I want to see Les mis, too!
