So, after a year of my sister badgering me to do so, I finally gave in and decided to watch one of the soap opera storylines she loves. After some debating over which to start with, I eventually went with Christian and Syed's story (from EastEnders).
And now I'm obsessed.
Over the course of three days, I watched over a year's worth of clips of this storyline (and am now waiting anxiously for Christian and Syed to appear on screen again- cannot wait for New Year's~ :D). And throughout the entire thing I was flailing around and squealing (this is an approximation of me around Syed's wedding to Amira: AAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHH OMGGGGGGGGGGG I CANNOT BELIEVE WHAT JUST I'D DON'T EVEN KNOW SYEEEEEEED CHRIIIISSTTTTIIIIIAAAAAAAANNNNNNNN... GO DIAF ZAINAB AAAARRRRRGHHH D:< ... |:( ... D':( ).
So yeah. Now I'm obsessed with a British soap opera. My RL friends are going to HATE ME for at least a week. :D
I need an icon for The Losers. Seriously. I'm pretty sure my life wasn't complete until I finally got to read this comic. I loved the movie, but the comic? SO MUCH MORE UTTERLY AMAZING IN EVERY WAY~. See how I squee and flail around in a daze of ~LOVE~. I love all of the main characters so much, I love to hate all of the villains (and hope they experience horrible fiery deaths by the end of the series), and I love the artwork and the storyline. ♥ I'm about 2/3 of the way through it now, and I'll hopefully finish either tonight or tomorrow. :D
Merry Christmas, btw. ♥
So, although it's not really a marker of the actually quality of my writing, I'm in something of a state of bliss to have found out I've been nominated at the Crossing Over Awards at Twisting the Hellmouth for four different stories. I've got pretty much no chance of winning a single award, but I don't really care right now. :D
