A Merry Christmas to One and All!

A happy Christmas to all of you! I hope you have a wonderful day full of Christmas cheer, love, joy, and all-around magic. It is truly one of the greatest days of the year; a day where the world stops, not only in honor of Jesus’s birth, but in celebration of love as a whole. For that is what Jesus is the embodiment of, right? (Or, at least, that’s what I believe God, Jesus, and all celestial Beings are about: good, happiness, magic, pure childhood.)

Speaking of pure childhood, I couldn’t resist setting The Doctor as my featured image. After all, The Doctor Who Christmas Special will be on tonight at 9PM (ET) on BBC America! Man, I miss Matt Smith. I love Peter Capaldi but the 11th Doctor was the embodiment of pure joy!

… what? I have to get my fangirling in some how! (Hee-hee!)

Truly, though, in however you may celebrate your holiday, whether it be Christian, Pagan, Jewish, or in some other way, I hope you all have a great day!

And I hope it’s a little… Supernatural.

(That is, I hope it’s a day full of wonder and magic and is, plainly, the best day ever!)

With much love and Christmas cheer,
Katie.

TWD Season 7 Premieres Tonight!

Yes, fangirls and fanboys, you’ve read that right! The wait is finally over! We will finally find out who Negan killed in the season 6 finale!

Are you ready???

I’m sure as hell not!

Although I am READY to see more of Negan! Really, really ready. Like… so… ready…

*suddenly finds herself staring a bit too much at the Negan gif above*

tumblr_inline_oc13cmsk861r1xds5_500.gif

… I… I mean… well, he is a lot like Supernatural’s Lucifer, after all; likeable, even though you know you shouldn’t even give them the time of day…

*alternates staring between Negan and Lucifer gifs*

Oh dear. I’m in trouble, aren’t I?

(Hilarious side note: for those who aren’t Supernatural fans, Jeffrey Dean Morgan played Dean and Sam’s dad in the first couple seasons! HAH!)

Anyways, Walkers, I hope we all enjoy this premiere, even if it destroys us down to a molecular level. I’m personally thinking that Abraham or Eugene will be the ones at the end of Lucille, not Daryl, Glenn, or Maggie. (Or, at least, hoping it won’t be those three; anyone else I could take!)

Regardless of our fears, The Walking Dead has yet to let us down. So hold tight, dear fans. Cast your death theories, well wishes, or whatever you so choose in the comments below!

And don’t forget to watch The Walking Dead, tonight at 9PM (ET) on AMC!

Rest in peace, whomever gets Lucille’s wrath!

SPN 11×10 Promo: “The Devil in the Details”

It’s a new year; new chances, new changes, new adventures in blogging… and an all new Supernatural tonight! Ahh! I’m so excited!

First of all, I love the show to death (and always will). Second, at the expense of Sam’s mental trauma, I am truly delighted to see Mark Pellegrino continue to play Lucifer in a second episode. He is so good as Lucifer. Just–ahh–too good, even considering his character’s alignment. (Tee-hee)

So catch the promo here:

This episode looks like it’ll center on Sam’s escape from Luci’s clutches. Dean might beat up Crowley, too, for letting his little bro get sidelined by the Devil… again. Only one question sits in my mind as I prep for tonight’s new episode: “Will Luci be a second Big Bad for season 11 or will Dean get Amara’s help in defeating the Devil (she certainly seems powerful enough to kill him)?”

What are your thoughts about this mid-season return of the Devil? What are your predictions, Hunters? Comment below to discuss!

Sidenote: Yup! I’m planning on doing more promos and reviews in the future, on various shows and movies, so this post is just the beginning! I’ve also just premiered Media Mondays (a new Youtube series discussing pop culture news and premieres) over on my Youtube channel, check out the video and comment below!

SUPERNATURAL IS BACK BABY!

Guys! Guys! It’s here! Oh my Chuck, IT. IS. HERE!!

giphy

Supernatural’s 11th season premiered last Wednesday — and, boy, is the show as rocking as ever!

I mean, I will admit since season 5 the show hasn’t held me like it did. Even if there were some pretty intense moments. However, season 11 looks like it may be going back to the old routes: a massively scary boss that seems impossible to beat, Sam and Dean reevaluating their tactics (and actually talking!), Team Free Will pushed to the edge, the world at risk.

Yes we’ve had those themes before. But, frankly, the Leviathan and Purgatory arcs didn’t hold my attention quite like Lucifer. (Me, the angel fangirl. Of course that would be my favorite season!)

I’m looking forward to what they’ll be doing. [Slight spoiler] but they’ve been referencing the archangels here and there, both in 10’s finale and 11’s premiere. Dare I say it? We might be seeing Gabe, Luci, and Michael again! Maybe they’ll be in multiple episodes? Maybe Adam will finally escape The Cage?

Ok. That’s a spoiler-free as I can make this post. It’s a quickie, too.

I’m excited to see what the show does this season. There’s a lot at stake for Team Free Will. Even in the first episode was it intense. Jeeez. *bites nails*

Catch the promo for 11×2:

And catch Season 11’s trailer:

Recap: James Jones, Deer, and Supernatural —

oh-my-takei

Ohhh this weekend has been — well, it wasn’t the worst. It was just busy! (Hence why I’m doing my weekend recap today) I was trying to get the first 50 pages of my manuscript edited for the James Jones Fellowship (that offers $10,000 to 1st prize) deadline on March 15th… all in the midst of a busy retail weekend.

It’s not surprising that I didn’t get it done.

HOWEVER — oh OF COURSE it’s raining. Hold on, I need to get my dogs in.

*insert 10 minutes of elevator music*

— Anyways, what was I saying? Or right. *clears throat*

HOWEVER, I did do a lot of work on my manuscript that DESPERATELY needed done. Probably the main reason of my slow editing: I’ve decided to change my 3rd person POV to 1st person.

Example: changing

“Angel went for a walk in the woods and saw two squirrels dancing around a tree”

to

“I decided to go for a walk in the woods today. It was a sunny, warm December morning and I hadn’t been out for a few days now — not since school let out and my finals were done. I laughed as two squirrels skipped around me and danced up a tree. I was perfectly content.”

It just FEELS so much better to change POVs. That and it’s popular in YA fiction right now so…

That was the main event of the past week. I’ve churned out a new blog post, two Fangirlish articles and a YouTube video in the midst of all of that writing. I’d say I’m baaaack! Hah. I absolutely love (and have missed) my craft!

Check out the articles and video below:

My next post is over on Fangirlish: the promo for next week’s Supernatural, titled “About A Boy.” APPARENTLY the episode will deal with time travel… or… something like it. All we know is Dean Winchester has suddenly regressed back to his teenage years, literally. Teen!Dean shows up at Sammy’s door. They search to find the cause… while Dean battles acne and puberty for the second time in his life! Poor Dean!

Sammy, you have your work cut out for you!

Fangirlish Favorites Master Post 2014

Over on Fangirlish, they’ve been publishing something called “Fangirlish Favorites”. Which is a way they’ve been ushering in the new year. Below, you’ll find a master post of all my Favorites listed here — and links to Fangirlish’s lists, where you can see the rest of the team’s favorite media of 2014. Happy New Year, everyone!

  • Top Books of 2014 
    Sundays at Tiffany’s by James Patterson and Gabrielle Charbonnet

    This was a book that has been on my shelf for a long time. Published in 2008, it’s a book with a simple premise: Jane Margaux’s imaginary friend, Michael, comes back into her life and they both fall in love. Hallmark Channel made a movie starring Alyssa Milano as Jane last year, if it sounds familiar. I read this book and MY GOD did I fall in love with it! The book goes deeper than the Hallmark movie ever did, and has such fantastic detail. Michael and Jane’s relationship is so beautifully casual and sweet! I strongly recommend reading it!

  • Top Movies of 2014
    Winter’s Tale

    Winter’s Tale with Colin Farrell, Jessica Brown Findlay, Russell Crowe, and Jennifer Connelly. It was written and directed by Akiva Goldsman, who wrote for movies such asThe Da Vinci Code, Practical Magic, and Insurgent. It’s a romantic fantasy set in an AU New York where Farrell’s character, Peter Lake, falls in love with Findlay’s character, Beverly Penn, who is dying from consumption. Crowe’s Pearly Soames tries to stop it. It’s a classic story about Angels vs Demons, good vs evil, the power of love, and what happens to us after we die. At first, watching this movie, I was kind of “eh” about it. But I watched it again recently, and it is actually a captivating tale. It makes you think and your heart swoon.

  • Top TV Episodes of 2014
    Supernatural 10×05, “Fan Fiction”

    Supernatural‘s 200th episode. OF COURSE. Supernatural is my most favorite TV show on air. Ever since they announced the 200th episode, entitled “Fan Fiction” being a shout out to fans, I was thrilled. The fourth wall was broken yet again as the show brought back Carver Edlund’s Supernatural books about the brothers. A group of theater girls, led by Marie, put on a musical illustrating the adventures that Sam and Dean had from seasons 1 to 5. Sam and Dean comically encounter this. Dean especially criticizes the play, but then warms up to it. The brothers help the girls fight off the goddess Calliope and watch as they perform a gorgeous rendition of “Carry On My Wayward Son.” The last conversation, between Marie and a character we haven’t seen since season 5, sums up how I feel about it: “What did you think?” “Not bad.”

  • Winter Break Binge-Watch
    Doctor Who

    During every December, I start watching the new series of Doctor Who back-to-back. I think, mainly, because I know that there’s going to be a new episode on Christmas every year. But I also think it’s because Doctor Who tends to embody a quality in humanity I cherish: imagination. There’s always a new twist, a new color, to the TV show. Some people like it, some people hate it. I just enjoy it. Even if it isn’t the best episode. I love the sense of creativity and adventure each new episode with The Doctor brings (especially with 11). Plus, it will probably last you a good majority of the month. Especially if you add the 1963 Classic Series, too.

  • Fandom Gifts We’re Gifting (Or Hoping To Receive)
    Dobby the House Elf

    Last year, while my mom was recuperating from both a concussion and an illness, I brought down the Harry Potter movies to watch with her. Now, she knew about Harry Potter and my intense love for the books and movies. But she never experienced them for herself. Fast forward a few days, and my mom was watching the movies on repeat. Especially the scenes containing a certain house elf. Spoiler alert: Mom, expect to get A LOT of Dobby themed presents this year! Not telling you what they are!

  • ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ — A Special Holiday #MCM
    Tom Hiddleston

    I just can’t seem to get past the actor who brilliantly played Loki in Thor, The Avengers, andThor 2. I first fell in love with his acting when I watched The Avengers. It had been a long time since someone had played a villain that made me question my very loyalty to superheroes. And it was Loki that got me into the Marvel fandom, back into Tumblr, and even helped me with some personal things in my life. So, thanks, Tom Hiddleston. You really did change my life.

  • Guilty Pleasures
    Twilight & Barbie in the Nutcracker

    Ohhhhh…. Well, I think the greatest guilty pleasure is a tie between Twilight and Barbie in the Nutcracker. Being an English major, I have many friends who despise these series for not being well written. But I find them enjoyable. Barbie in the Nutcracker has an excellent, romantic, twist on E.T.A. Hoffmann’s story. And Twilight, yes, you either love or hate it. Some things might bug me with some of the series, but I do find the romance between Edward and Bella compelling. It brings me back to high school. And a time where life was simpler.

  • Christmas & Holiday Media
    Hallmark Movies

    https://youtube.googleapis.com/v/feczrXm5-_Q&source=uds

    I’m a sucker for Hallmark movies. Really. During December, just pop on the Hallmark Channel and relax. They play movies all afternoon and evening. And they’re not so bad. My favorites are Sundays at Tiffany’s (with Alyssa Milano), The Christmas Shepherd (Teri Polo), November Christmas (Sam Elliott), and Help for the Holidays (Summer Glau).

  • Winter Break Reads
    Neil Gaiman

    Whenever someone asks me a book recommendation, I always point them in Neil Gaiman’s direction. His works include Stardust, Sandman, The Graveyard Book, and, most recently, The Ocean at the End of the Lane. Which is one of my favorites. Gaiman’s works center on fairy tales, but they always have some kind of new twist to them. The Ocean at the End of the Lane follows the memories of a man, who visits a home he used to hang out at when he was a child. There live the Hempstocks: a girl, a woman, and a grandmother. They help the boy overcome a terrifying monster. The novel is directed at adults. It centers on themes such as the search for self-identity and growing from a child to an adult.

  • YouTube Cheat Sheet
    Markiplier

    https://youtube.googleapis.com/v/Zz8MCVJb0_k&source=uds

    If there’s anything you should watch over on YouTube, it should be Markiplier’s channel. I first came across him when I was looking up the Oculus Rift. Eventually I came across his live play of Five Nights at Freddy’s, an indie horror game where you escape animatronics trying to stuff you in a decommissioned Freddy suit. And, boy, did I laugh HARD at his antics. Markiplier, really Mark Fischbach, is so expressive when playing videogames. Especially with horror games. And, most especially, with Five Nights At Freddy’s. But, I warn you, this game has A LOT of jumpscares!

  • Charitable Campaigns
    Tom Hiddleston’s Ice Bucket Challenge

    https://youtube.googleapis.com/v/zzmNI1JFOnM&source=uds

    I had seen posts about the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge when it first started, with some of my local friends doing it, but I never really considered doing it myself. At least, not until Tom Hiddleston (#2 on my “Celebrities I Want To Meet” list) partook in the challenge. Thank you, Nathan Fillion, for challenging him. Good lord. I fell in love with him all over again. Not only because of the soaked white shirt (that I’m convinced he chose to wear to make ladies drool), but also because he brought attention to the cause: curing Lou Gehrig’s disease. Oh, and, also, nominating Benedict Cumberbatch, Luke Evans, and Helena Bonham Carter. *cackles*

  • Favorite Fandom Moments of 2014 (Part 1)
    Meeting Destination Truth‘s Josh Gates

    Meeting Destination Truth’s Josh Gates at The Ohio State Reformatory in May. I first came to know Josh Gates through Ghost Hunters. His show (that has now been cancelled),Destination Truth, came on after Ghost Hunters. And I was hooked. The aim of his travels is not to prove whether a monster (such as the Yeti) or ghost may exist but to tell the stories that people have about the Unknown – from all over the world. In May, I got to meet Josh Gates himself – shake his hand, get his book autographed (FINALLY), get a picture with him, and investigate the Ohio State Reformatory. I think I composed myself pretty well, considering I was meeting the #1 spot on my “Celebrities I Want To Meet” list. (Even though my friend will tell you I was “dewy-eyed”). But I hope that May 2015 goes better. That I get to talk to him for more than five minutes, and investigate with him. *nervous laugh*

  • Favorite Fandom Moments of 2014 (Part 2)
    The Fandom War – Supernatural‘s “Hunters” vs. Beliebers

    Way back in January 2014, Lil Za was arrested at Justin Bieber’s house for possession of drugs. Jared Padalecki tagged Bieber on Twitter, asking him if he was paying Za to take the fall for the rockstar’s drugs. To make the recap short, Beliebers started threatening Jared, then the show. And, oh, they didn’t know what kind of war they were getting in to, did they? Not only did the Supernatural fandom unite to watch the next episode that was on, but so did the other fandoms. Together Hunters, Whovians, Potterheads, and so many other fandoms joined together to beat down the Beliebers, who had been threatening not to watch the show because of Jared’s remark. Thus the event was dubbed the “Fandom Wars” on Tumblr. The Beliebers didn’t know what hit them.
