Decided to just answer every single question of the book meme I posted an entry back. I'll leave that up so that the questions are there for people if they want it. I've put the majority of questions under a cut because this is LONG, people. There's 50 questions. So, get a cup of tea and let's get started!

1. What is your favourite book and/or book series of all time? This is actually a really hard question to answer because so many come to mind at once. Uh. I guess if I had to pick just one, I'd go with Good Omens, by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. No matter how many times I read that, I always find something new to laugh at, something new to amaze me, and just always have the same level of enjoyment in reading the story.

Willy Wonka (Things I Want)
I don't think I've ever had such a big want from just seeing a promotional picture of a bear before...


So, this is Toy Fair 2016 week, or at least it was this weekend, and there was a lot of stuff released. I'm interested in the Disney Descendants Villain Kids Signature Dolls, some Marvel Legends, Ghostbusters, some of the Star Wars Black Series Line, and - of course - the retro style clothed Bill & Ted action figures by NECA. Out of all of this? I'm most likely only to find the Disney things because the distribution on that actually hits the UK. But enough about that.

It's been kind of hit and miss lately, in terms of mood and what not. While I am actually getting some sleep, it's been happened at weird times. I might sleep all night one night, and then the next couple of nights get maybe two or three hours at most. I'm still feeling quite down, but with it I've noticed the development of some interesting tactile issues. Or, rather, I'm just finding some feelings too uncomfortable for me. Like a brush on my head - I'm trying to find a soft brush to fix that one - and sometimes even the feel of the shower on my head feels... wrong. I'm going to mention to my GP, and see what that's all about.

Galavant finished. It was an epic ending, and I'm really hoping they get one more surprise renewal. Considering the amount of UK famous people they had in the second series, I'm surprised it's yet to air here in the UK - it really would do well over here. I saw the Deadpool movie with the Dad and the Brother and we all enjoyed it. Some jokes are a little bit eh, but context does help a lot, and it's... weirdly refreshing to see that someone who can be labelled as a victim also makes really shitty jokes as well. I know that sounds odd the way I've phrased it, but I honestly can't think of a better way to explain it all.

I've read 7 out of 50 books for this year so far. Most of these have been comics, I'm not going to lie, but having the Kindle has also been pretty helpful for getting my reading done. I have pre-ordered Harry Potter and the Cursed Child because there is no way I'm ever getting tickets for that show... those shows? I don't quite understand the set up all that well. I'm hoping the book will help, even if it is just the libretto of the show.

Really into Charlie Bears when it comes to collecting habits at the moment. It ties into the whole how I'm feeling things, they're nice and soft and that's just... nice. Though I went to look at the Steiff bears and, well, see that picture up there? Yeah, he's out of my price range, but I will find a way to save up and own him. Come with me, and you'll be, in a world of pure imagination...

Hope everyone is doing well!

OMG GUYS: BATMAN REBORN FIGURES

Oh! Look at how awesome the Batgirl is! I've been wanting a Steph figure for ages, and I've got to admit, the new costume design works better for a figure than it does actual art work. ('Course, I still wanna know what the HELL IS GOING TO HAPPEN TO CASS! ANSWER ME BATWRITERS!!!)

"What's she getting so worked up about?" The Master, of course, dry tones as always.

"New Batman action figure pictures," Nine answered looking bored. It's to be expected, really, that out of all the Doctors, Nine's the one least likely to attack the Master straight off. I think it's cause, well, he's the only one really without a Master to spar with. Either that or he can't be bothered. "Which isn't helpful when she's supposed to be working on her presentation for tomorrow." Yeah, yeah, yeah, I hear you Nine, but... BATMAN FIGURES!!!

"...What's so special about a man who dresses up in a Bat suit?" 

... ... ...

"Don't attack him. DO YOUR WORK." Nine yelled over at me. Okay, okay, I'm doing it. I've got 510 words outta 700 though, and that doesn't include footnotes! "Get it finished." Nine is a partypooper. Remind me why you're sitting over at my beside table while I do this? "Because you'll sit and watch one of your little shows instead of doing your work." Good point Time Lord Guy. ...What if I put on Doctor Who? Your season? "No," well that was a quick answer. "Do your work." 

The presentation - "Crime is a major feature of everyday life." Discuss - is, as Nine said, meant for tomorrow. Which would be the last day of the induction week of university. Apparently I'm in again next week, but as of this writing, I've had nothing to tell me whether or not this little fact of life is true. I'll ... find out somehow.

Looking forward to starting uni properly actually, in that completely terrified out of my mind way. "Don't be scared, wit beyond measure is man's greatest treasure." ... Why is it Luna always pops up to cheer me up? I swear - that girl is gonna turn out to be an empath. As well as being an Elf of Fairy. I really should look into getting a Galadriel. She would be great guidance for Luna.

Okay, just did a quick check of ebay, and there's a good baragain there. Might check this shop in town before doing anything though. It does all the LotR figures at good prices. And it is beside the back issue comic shop...

"Do. Your. Work!" 

... Spoil my daydreaming fun, Nine.

"Fun later, finish the work" 

*sigh*

So the room got tidied ... eventually. There were a lot of fights about it all, and Jack died a few times due to the Master's frustration at being made to dust things. He doesn't like being made to do domestic style chores. Scarily enough, I sorta agree with him on that. S'why I made them do it instead.

"Evil taskmaster, I'm impressed." Yes, once he realised how evil I was being, the Master suddenly decided I was worthy of his time, and he's going to listen to me more now. I don't know whether to be pleased with this turn of events, or annoyed with it.

Speaking of annoyed ... apparently Draco and Gizzers are not getting along. Gizzers keeps threatening Draco with running him through, and Draco keeps turning Gizzers into a mouse.

"The boy is a menace," Gizzers snarled at me. I'd sent Draco over to help Sarah Jane out with whatever it is she needed help with. (The woman's a genius, she always finds things to busy people with). "He refuses to listen to any advice I attempt to give, stating that I am a 'muggle' and only fit to be ground into the dirt," there's a snarling looking on Gizzer's face. He's getting all hoity toity again.

"Giz, you're the only one who's willing to watch over him," I remind him.

"Not so, I will watch the child." Bwah ... Oh yeah ... Arwen. Forgot I had LotR actions figures for a bit there. "Indeed," she sniffs slightly. "I will watch the boy. He is a child of magic, and only elf magic shall help him." ... When did Arwen get so prentenious? Oh wait ... it could be to do with the look Gizzers is giving her...

"We will watch the boy," and there's Aragorn, right on time. Possessive man, but at the same time not really. It's hard to explain. "Do you consent?" he asks me.

"Not up to me, up to the kid," I say, calling Draco over. The sitaution is explained to him, and he looks like he's giving it serious thought. Getting 'watched' by the King of Gondor, and his Queen, who also happens to be the equivalent of an Eleven Princess? 

"I suppose it wouldn't be too bad."

werepuppyblack: (The Life of Action Figures)
So, during the summer I always take the time to fully clean out my room - to gut it. However this is a big job, and I wasn't going to do it on my own

"Piss. Off" Ever the helpful one there Master.  "I do not help clean." ... I have many thoughts about forms of torture for you Master, and right now, I'm in the mood to try the one topping the list: fire. "... Still not helping."

"Ignore him. We shall help!" Ah Four, ever the loud mouthed optimist. "Just direct us, and we shall clean!" The Doctors murmur their assesent to this - though in Six and Nine's cases its definitely grudging. We get them armed with plastic bin bags, brushes, the vacum, etc, etc. Luna offered to cast a weightless spell on my wardrobe, but I think it's too big for the charm to be effective. Bless her for asking though

Giz and Bobbin have grabbed the dusters and, with all due respect to Bobbin, Giz is better at this. The Trekkers are sorting through my books, Sylar's ... pissed off somewhere, and Claire's helping Sarah Jane's little team. All in all, we've got a good team here for the tiding up process

... All right ... better get to work.

I was tagged by [livejournal.com profile] hazeloakleigh who gave me Luna Lovegood

1. Do you like this character?
I love Luna! She's one of my absolute favourite characters in the Harry Potter series. It's hard to pinpoint what I think makes her so cool, so I'll just leave it at "she's the coolest one there."

2. What name/s do you call this character?
Luna, Lunar, Galadriel-to-be, Moonchild ... there's a whole host. I called my little action figure version Adorable!Tiny!Luna (She's really small, and so cute.)

3. What image-colour do you associate with this character?

There's three actually: white, gold and silver. I'm not really sure why its those three colours, they're just the ones that come to mind for dear dear Luna. I think it's all related to the elf/Galadriel vibe I get from her really.

4. What image-song do you associate with this character?

Hm ... tricky. Very tricky. I can't help but lean towards the score from the 2003 live action Peter Pan movie. I know they're not 'songs', but I think that score fits Luna perfectly. Tracks in particular I'd chose are: Flying, Fairy Dance, and I Do Believe in Fairies

5. What blood-type do you think this character is?

You know, I'm not sure if any of the blood type personalities really fit dear Luna. None seem to come to mind

6. Of all the titles to that this character appears in, what character do you like to put this character with?

It's usually Harry, but I've recently gained an interest in the Draco/Luna. I can't help but think her gentle insanity would be good for him. Even if just as a friend.

7. What would you want to say to this character?

You are awesome just the way you are, never change.

8. Which do you want to do with this character: Shake hands, hug, or kiss?

Oh hug. Gotta be a hug

9. Now tag 6 friends.
Erm, tell you what, leave a comment with what fandom you'd like your character to be from, and I'll give you one, 'kay?

So, my other HP figure arrived today. Kind of figures he'd be late.

"I was not late," he sneered, when I mentioned this, "I arrived at precisely the right time for me to arrive at. You incorrectly assumed I choose to arrive earlier." Oy. "So, this place is ..." there's a pause as he looks round "...acceptable." 

"Bloody better be you little..." 

"Hello Draco, how are you?" Luna calls over pleasantly. Huh, guess she really will be nice to anyone. "It is nice to see you," she told him, smiling in her own dreamy way.

Oh yeah, and then she hugged him.

"How dare you touch me, you flithly little..." There was the sound of a gun cocking.

"If I were you, not only would you be better looking, but you wouldn't be finishing that sentence." Now, this was a turn up for the books I didn't really expect. I did mention, didn't I, that John's decided to adopt a sort of big brother role for Luna? No? Well, yeah, John's playing big brother to Luna. "An' I'd apologise to the little bit here." 

Draco scowled in return, muttering an apology before sulking off to one of the shelves, out of the road. Okay, so maybe I feel a bit on the sorry side for the kid. It's not easy, getting threatened with a gun.

"Giz, hey, Gizzers!" I call on Guy, who comes over quickly. He's reliable, dear Gizzers, I'll give him that.

"Yes, my Lady?" 

"Keep an eye on Malfoy. I figure you two might have stuff in common, with the whole default evil thing," he nods in return to me.

"I will watch out for the boy, my Lady," he assures me. Good on ya Gizzers. 

Now ... as long as we can keep the witch and the wizard away from Sylar and the Master, we'll be doing good.

... I've just jinxed myself, haven't I?

werepuppyblack: (The Life of Action Figures)
"Oh, look. Nargles."

Yes, I got a Luna. She's adorable. I mean look




Pure adorableness

"Hello," Sarah Jane smiled at her, motherly instincts pushed to the front of her mind. She's been worried about Luke the last few days, poor lady. "Are you lost, little one?" Luna is pretty small compared to the rest, only 3 3/4 inches.

"I'm following the Nargles," Luna told her, "they're swimming round your head." ... Okay then. Sarah Jane frowned slightly, not quite sure what to make of her. Not many people are sure what to make of Luna to be honest.

"And who is this little cutie?" John's voice joins the group.

"Off limits, John," I call over. He shoots me a withering glare.

"... You look like a vampire," Luna tells him. There's a pause, and John grins.

"I like her."
