Yesterday was the cough to end all coughs and a feverish, aching body. Today the cough has transitioned into a cold (with the occasional cough) and my back is one giant hurt (probably from sleeping so much yesterday).
Someone end my suffering ;__;
Now to the useful stuff I promised in my headline.
# First, icons for writers and book lovers. flarelunari, you remember us talking about needing some writing icons? I just stumbled upon a few and wanted to let you (and everyone else, of course) know. They are here and here. It's not much but it's a start.
# Another really handy thing I came across today is a website that helps you find the html code for a certain symbol or character. Ever wanted to place a 🎔 in your entry or comment? Or a 𝄞? What about this ⚔? There are tons of emoticons, characters and symbols. And it's easy to find and copy them. Just go to amp-what.com and discover a character. Here, look: ☕ Aww, that's too good. I like that site!
I wanted to write more but it's late over here (after 11pm) and I have to get up early in the morning, so this little update has to do for the moment.
Saiyuki Reload BLAST E02 (7/10) → I'm not mad I'm just disappointed that this was a pure filler ep and not a Gaiden flashback. That being said, Moertono_ did point out it was a good ep characterization-wise and I totes agree. (I will never get over Saiyuki showing Goku as a big bro. NEVER.)
Personally, the most noteworthy thing in the episode (aside from the completely hilarious Urasai) was them showing the Houtou peeps again. Gyokumen looked damn fine like wtf. I never really found her attractive before but woah. Sadly, still no Lirin and Yaone.
Urasai kinda rekindled my love for Sanzo/Kougaiji which was pretty unexpected hahaha. Nowhere near, "I gotta write fIC!" levels but still.
I think that becomes much clearer when Daisy simply decides to trust them (because Coulson drugs the undercover Nazi guy with truth serum) and the narrative has her do it without further suspicion of their intentions in episode one, and makes it so that Mike Peterson’s mistrust of organization like SHIELD is wrong because they know better than him and he needs to be saved from himself, never-mind he had legit reasons not to trust them or Daisy (after that point), who put him in their crosshairs.
Then there’s the fact that whenever there’s an organization (like the one Jiaying set up) that isn’t affiliated with Shield (and doesn’t like them), the Whedon Klan does its best to find a way to demonize anyone who a): doesn’t want to work with shield, b): doesn’t trust shield’s intentions.

A very brave man recorded a very dramatic reading of this queen of all bad fics and it's hilarious! This fic is actually so bad, it makes you laugh your ass off. Literally! I showed it to my husband, who isn't even into fanfics, and we were both in stitches listening to every single part of this cracktastic fic.
Curious now? Here, listen to this masterpiece:
Edit July 13th, 2017: medievales found the link to the fic. For all those who want to read it. :D
Also, I wanted to welcome all the new people I've met in the last days. *waves* Nice to meet you all! I hope we'll have a great time together. :)
