Welp . . . in three days, my summer will be ending and I'll be back in school with, once again, six classes stacked on my shoulders. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
at least my major is declared and I still have Fridays off. Plus, I only have one class on Thursdays, from 12:00 to 1:15. Woohoo! Also, I hope I enjoy the Tolkien class I recently got enrolled in. My older sister told me she doesn't like his writing style, and I must say that, as I'm still
reading The Hobbit
(I've been busy, all right?), I think his style is okay. Easy to understand, but seems to primarily be narrative. That's how I describe it, anyway, so don't be like Girion and try to shoot Black Arrows at me, okay? Also, I have an illustrated edition of the book (i.e. a graphic novel). My mom recently bought it for me from out of the blue. I have the whole fucking package, it looks like: book, graphic novel, and movies. Hot damn . . .
God help me if I ever get down to reading the LotR trilogy or The Simarillion
. It's likely when
, considering that one of my classes is FUCKING TOLKIEN!!!
In other news, I'm experiencing a sad, kind of empty feeling due to a fanfiction I've followed (and practically been obsessed with) for 11 months—since day one, no less—having finally ended just yesterday
. And yes, it's that MLP fanfic, Precious Blood
, I felt like sharing a couple months ago in a status update, but no one bothered to even comment on it. That still baffles me. I mean, WTF?
Like I said before, I normally don't talk about anything related to MLP—the last thing I'd do is shove it down people's throats—and I don't consider myself a hardcore member of the brony fandom. I haven't watched every episode of every season, although I've made an exception this season, but I do love it and certain things about it. My favorite pony is Fluttershy. Why? I feel it's because I can kind of relate to her in terms of being shy in some aspects, she's fucking adorable, has a soft, beautiful singing voice and just voice in general (Bless you, Andrea Libman
), and I love how she's grown as a character. And furthermore, I ship her with Discord because, to me and many others, they are cute together and their relationship makes the most sense, even though with Discord there's no fun in making sense. LOL
Anyway, Precious Blood was a great experience to enjoy as the story progressed. I was at the edge of my seat and squeeing like the idiot I am while reading it. I was especially giddy whenever a new chapter came up. This fanfic appealed to my love for Fluttercord and my appreciation of vampire lore and the darkness and maturity that should accompany it (FUCK TWILIGHT!!!). It was different from what the author, DisneyFanatic2364, has written in the past, but variety is the spice of life, as the saying goes, and I think she did a great job in getting her feet wet with a story like Precious Blood. All in all, I think it's the shit. While I feel a little sad that I can't continue having that pleasant experience, I don't regret anything. I personally recommend, for those who are interested, taking a gander at it.
At least DF is still directing "Daughter of Discord." Episode 5 should be coming up any day now.
And lastly, I hope this week's MLP episode will have me laughing a lot because of two reasons: 1.) DISCORD (I especially look forward to his
episodes) and 2.) LotR and other fantasy references!!! Yes, all of the yes!!!
