I visualise words. Sometimes I think I visualise words too much.

I especially think so when I find myself passionately resenting the word 'feels' (as a noun) over and over again because it doesn't make me think of strong emotions. It makes me think of slug-like creatures covered patchily in rotten and moldy fur made of bits of soggy wool carpet that somebody probably jizzed on.

Honestly, the least disgusting thing I can picture 'feels' to be is probably a bunch of ADAM slugs. And even then I still don't want to be given any of them. Ew.

11. Silent Bachelor Transformed  
Grimm 1x10 - Going Out In A Gallenblaze Of Glory

(Hint: That is not how you pronounce Gallenblase.)

- Okay. So. Boy gets kidnapped and driven in a white van for god knows how long to a compound in the middle of godfucking nowhere and thinks that dropping a trail of pearls LEADING FROM THE DRIVEWAY UP TO THE HOUSE will do shit all? Wow. Smart stuff.

(You know, for my personal sanity let's pretend that there were tons of other houses on that compound which I just didn't happen to see.)

(Also let's pretend that I missed the scene where they've been dropping pearls out of the van all along.)

- WHY. THE FUCK. WOULD YOU STERILISE THE INCISION SITE. OF SOMEBODY. YOU ARE GOING. TO KILL ANYWAY? I would buy the surgical gear for the sake of not leaving behind any printsy or DNAy evidence and simply not getting bloodsplattered, but sheeshfuckpie, you realise that all that fancy OP stuff is done so that the patient doesn't die of a horrible infection, right? RIGHT? Which is sort of a moot point if you are going to harvest the patient's organs (and hang them out to dry and turn them into delicious powder instead of transplanting them) and then set him on fucking fire.

Iiiiiii don't know why that tiny detail bothers me so much, I guess it's one of those moments where I go THIS!!!!!!!!!! and point at the show and yell GRIMM! SUBTITLE: WE REALLY CAN'T BE ARSED TO PUT ALL THAT MUCH THOUGHT OR EFFORT INTO THIS.

- Wolfie, oh Wolfie. You are going to be the reason why I will keep watching this stupid show for as long as it's around. You know, maybe I should finally start paying attention to his name. Then again, I'm pretty sure I will just like Wolfie better anyway.

10. Silent Machine (predated)  
...Okay, I think I get my boredom issue with this show now. According to wikipedia "the show has been described as a cop drama with a twist... a dark and fantastical project about a world in which characters inspired by Grimms' Fairy Tales exist".

BUT SEE THE THING IS. It's basically got a bunch of generic cop drama plot lines (and I bloody hate cop dramas), except the culprits are actually creatures. So far I don't think there was any episode where those creatures couldn't have been rewritten into regular people and still keep the plot virtually unchanged.

It's really dreadfully and awfully and painfully poorly done, almost as if the monsters were only added in as an afterthought, because you don't see anybody dealing with them properly, even the protagonist is essentially just OH OKAY I'M A 'GRIMM' NOW and then goes about his business as usual. His partner and his wife don't question any of the WEIRD SUPERNATURAL SHIT except an occasional 'Oh wow it sure was weird that those 1032 rats attacked them teenage boys as if on command SO YEAH ANYWAY WANT SOME COFFEE AND DONUTS?'

It's not incorporated into the world. It's just slapped on like a cheap wig where you can still see the real hair sticking out underneath. So yeah. It's really not dark. Or fantastical. It's a cop show in which the perps occasionally sport hideously designed monster faces.

It might... have been more interesting if they'd gone a more True-Blood-esque route and actually have everyone be aware of those creatures and not just the ~chosen one~ who doesn't seem to give a shit anyway? Like. Creatures living a normal life could struggle with stereotypes, human culprits could set crimes up to make it look like a creature did it, the police could have a special creature division that gets into fights over jurisdiction and such with regular divisions AND YES all of that has been done in some form or other as well, BUT JESUS FUCK JUST. Anything to actually ~incorporate~ the monster idea instead of just slapping it on as an aside.

...That reminds me, I've always wanted to see-- almost write, actually, since I want it so badly -- a universe like Supernatural where one hunter/chosen one/whatever the monster killer of the day is goes out and goes public with their information. I MEAN SURE crazysauce and all but all those universes usually have creatures you can SEE like, vampire teeth or other deformities AND PEOPLE WILL BELIEVE THAT IF YOU SHOVE IT INTO THEIR FACE LONG ENOUGH.

And what I want is the transition from a universe where only a select few know to one where everyone knows, all the struggles of being taken seriously, the reaction from the "monster community" (like, would they go further underground, take it as it comes or make an active step themselves - not all of them would be sentient enough, but some definitely!). SCIENCE that actually starts working on cures for vampirism and political debates about the rights of certain creatures, discussion on where to draw lines, for example to what extent a werewolf is to be held responsible for crimes committed under the full moon?

...WELL, something like that anyway. Maybe I should just watch True Blood instead, but I could never really get into it somehow. OH WELL anyway. Long story short I don't have a catchy phrase to sum up anything I just said.

Thank you, ladies and gentlemen, thank you.

The more I actually use this journal the more I worry that The Abstract Art Titlegenerator is not the best companion to advise me on my subject lines.

I also received a mysterious phone call to my old mobile this morning. Well. It's less mysterious so much as it is a number which looks familiar without me being able to recall whose number it is. I called back, but nobody answered. Stay tuned for the next part of this exciting mystery!

07. Unconscious Memories of Transfigured Dream  
Hey, remember how I mentioned I was going to write up my thoughts on films and shows and books more often? No? Yeah, me neither. BUT I'M STILL GOING TO DO IT.

So after finishing all there is to see of Once Upon A Time I'm now moving on to Grimm.

Grimm 1x01 - The Generic Pilot

I already don't remember anything from this episode I could talk about. One reason for that is that my brain is drowning in Athosham porn and worries about my future, the other is that it really did not strike me as particularly memorable.

Not bad, just a mush of things I've seen before and nothing to really grip me. I almost stopped watching, but then there was the wolf guy- pardon, Blutbad (*snerk*) who turned out to be good-ish and I guess it was a nice introduction to get the mentor spiel from the monster for a change?

Stillllllll there is much ehhh and I secretly suspect that I'm already only in in order to mock the German monster names whenever they show up, BUT ANYWAY I will keep watching. Who knows. Maybe it will pick up and inspire great awe in the future.

06. The Stenographic Formation  
Title: Eternal (That's The Prompt Not A Title, Mouette You Are Cheating)
Pairing/Characters: Athos & Buckingham
Canon: The Three Musketeers (2011) [AU]
Note: So I was trying to Write More Things (TM) and checked out a couple of prompt communities for inspiration, except somehow that one set of prompts only made me think of the inscription on Historicalham's tomb and things just went depressingly downhill from there.

Athos understanding of fashion - contemporary or otherwise - had always been very limited, but even he had known that, without a shadow of doubt, he had just laid his eyes upon the most hideous hat in all of France, England and indeed Europe, if not the entire world. )

01. Allegory, allegorier, allegoriest.  
I cleverly spent so much time trying to come up with a username I enjoy that I'm now almost too tired to write the entry I created this fucking journal for. At least this is still a good time to put down some guidelines pertaining to the use of this journal:

01. Using the word 'fuck' at least once in every journal entry is mandatory.

That is all. Thank you.
