Yeah, I'm having a innapropriately fangirly moment

You know, I would talk about Uni, but thus far this week it has been less than interesting. Well, possibly excluding Novels, in which when we had to come up with event to start a plot, I somehow ended in a group with this one guy who was obsessed with teddy bears. Yes, I know.

Also, next week we are discussing American Psycho. I feel a sudden urge to have a business card made.

I'm going to get back to the interesting stuff, aka fandom. And it turns out this is going to be a sequel to my last post, since the exact same fandoms turn up.

Anyways, after Uni on Monday, fa11ing_away and I went to see Watchmen at the IMAX. I went again, partially because I wanted to see it on IMAX, partially because I wanted to see if the comments I heard about it being better the second time were true, and partially to see how someone who hadn't read the graphic novel would react. (Her reaction, as far as I can tell, seems to be along the lines of "It was quite good, especially with the shades of gray stuff, but I never want to see it again." She did pinch my copy of the novel to read, so...)

And in vaguely related news, I seem to be finding movie!Veidt distressingly attractive. Which is wrong on multiple levels, starting at the fact that this is, you know, Adrian Veidt we are talking about (and I certainly never liked comic!Veidt like that) and ending with him being, as fa11ing_away put it, very Mardi Gras.

Curse you, Matthew Goode, for making him so damn pretty. Especially in the scene in my icon, which wins a prize for moments that shouldn't be hot but are. It doesn't hurt that there's actually been some decent fic floating round. Or fanart, which is currently with the screencaps I've nabbed in a folder on my computer. Named "Boys", for the lulz factor.

And to jump over to my other fandom du jour, there's a new chapter of FMA up, and it's really kinda epic. We're definitely getting close to the end here, but oh boy, it's fun right now.
