Status Report

I haven't been on in awhile, which was not intentional. Since my last post, I graduated college and am now looking for a job. Though depending on how that goes I might be going to grad school earlier than I thought. Other than that, not much going on.

Status Report

So, I haven't really been on much for awhile, I was pretty busy with school.

*Handed in my term paper for my Oscar Wilde class, and have to do a presentation on Thursday (Gender Roles in the Importance of Being Earnest). For my Death in the Middle Ages class my paper is due on Friday. I have an essay coming up for my Shakespeare's Contemporaries class but that's not until next Thursday so I won't have to worry about that.

*I played Bioshock:Infinite, which I loved. I'm not sure I can express how much I loved this game, not without spoilers anyway, but it was awesome! Since, I pre-ordered it on Steam, I got a free copy of the first Bioshock game, which I never finished before because something kept going wrong with the save files on my X-box 360 version. No problem with PC version, and finished that too...I got the good ending and it was just so nice and heartwarming after playing a game full of insane people with super-powers trying to kill you in an underwater city.

*I got the first volume of Saga on comixology and can now catch up on it. I've given up on DC for the time being (though Red Hood and the Outlaws is very tempting), so I'm mostly just reading Marvel now, specifically: Hawkeye, Fearless Defenders,  Young Avengers, and Uncanny X-men. I want to start Captain Marvel soon, but besides that does anyone have any other comics suggestions?

*Speaking of X-men, I absolutely hated Avengers vs. X-Men (especially how much it ignored continuity to have to make a storyline that made "sense"), but from what I've been reading that deals with the aftermath of the event, it's started to make me interested in Scott for the first time in years.

*Finally, on to fanfiction. I've been wanting to read fics dealing with Jason's relationship with the Batfamily, specifically ones that feature them starting to be on better terms, so does anyone have any recs? I'd perfer gen, but if it's a shipfic I can read either Jason/Tim or Jason/Steph. I can't really see him with other members of the Batfam, especially Bruce. I'm usually pretty tolerant of ships I don't like, people are going to ship what they like same as me, but I just can't with Bruce/Any of the other Batfam members. No, just no.

*Also, Vampire Diaries fanfiction. Despite my best attempts not to, I've started liking both Damon/Elena and Klaus/Caroline. But now that I have, does anyone have recs for either of these couples that have Damon or Klaus as sympathetic but not to the extent of OOC or Draco in Leather Pants? Also, I love Stefan/Rebekah so much, as well as Elijah/Katherine.

So it's finally happened...

...DC comics has burned me out. Not suprising, given the New 52 it was bound to happen eventually.

I'm just kind of sick of them right now. The way they answer fans who are interested in seeing certain characters, the ending of the Clark/Lois relationship, the confusing timeline, the way they're trying to make everything edgier and more like Marvel (not that Marvel is bad, DC just fails when it tries to copy them), it just all added up.

Then Damien died and Grant Morrison's character assasination of Talia was complete (though apparently in the latest issue, it's revealed that Talia didn't give the order to kill Damian and she's mad at Heretic or something).

The last straw was one of the Green Lantern writers walking off his book because editorial wanted him to kill of John Stewart. Though DC seems to be backing down on that due to negative interent fan reactions, it just proves how controlling editoral has gotten and just pissed me off.

I'm done with them for now.
