09:20 pm: They’ve moved two of the pokestops in the library garden out of the garden and to the front of the library (as if it’s not bad enough that half the pokestops in Copenhagen are long gone street art…) - which annoyed me when I first noticed, but it does mean that now there are four pokestops right in front of the library entrance, and you can get all four at once or at least the effect of lures put on them, and at least two of them even if you’re standing right inside the nice warm building…

I wonder how long it’ll be before the grumpy old men mafia start bitching about the kids daring to hang out at the library entrance.

08:14 pm: I seem to have fallen for a new Netflix show called "Midnight Diner: Tokyo Stories", which is basically 25 minute episodes of the life dramas of the customers at a tiny hole-in-the-wall restaurant. I adore it and it makes me hungry ever time.

(I just watched the "Hot Pot" episode and now I'm wondering if there are any Copenhagen restaurants that serve that. Hmmm. Hey, [personal profile] ximeria and [personal profile] kabal42 and [profile] lysanatt, have we made any plans for that december day other than seeing the Crazy Christmas Cabaret?)

And apparently before it became a Netflix Original show, it was a tv show with the same actors - I think, there's fairly little information to be tracked down about it - and it looks like there's three seasons of it on youtube. Interesting.

Right - first finish the Netflix season, then investigate other seasons. And I need to take a look at that Halfworlds urban fantasy tv show that HBO just got as well...

09:45 pm: I went to see Doctor Strange today.

It's okay. It's not terrible, it's not awesome, it's not the worst MCU movie I've seen so far, but I don't have any desire to rewatch it. Also, there were a lot of parts where I'm pretty sure must be a wow experience if the 3D is good, though as I watched in 2D, I wouldn't know.

Things I quite liked:

And this is the part the spoiler-phobic should stear clear ofCollapse )

10:50 pm: Dearest Darling Yulegoat
Hello dear Yulegoat.

THANK YOU!!!! for being the person to write for me. I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Things I generally like in fic: slash and gen; plot; snark; fluff; banter; happy endings; awesome characters being awesome; crack; twisty plots; AUs of the if-this-single-thing-had-gone-differently type; surprises.
Dislikes & squicks: non-con; a/b/o, seme/uke, sub/dom and any and all similar power dynamic tropes; very kinky sex (heavy bdsm, watersport, etc.); anachronisms; underage; kidfic; bestiality; mpreg; pwp; genderswap; incest; OC love interests; high-scool and coffeeshop AUs.

If you're the type to stalk your Yuletide victim before pouncing, your best bet these days would be to take a look at my tumblr.

Right, onwards to the prompts?

Freddy & Monstrene - Dennis JürgensenCollapse )

Out of the Dark - David WeberCollapse )

European National LibrariesCollapse )

One-Eyed Jack - Elizabeth BearCollapse )

08:03 pm: Do you ever sit down and read a book and just grow more and more convinced that it started life as fanfiction? Not even any particular fanfiction, just - there’s something about it. Something about the characters, something about the tropes and the narrative, something about the choice of slang terms and the year it was published, leaving you to suspect that this might have, once upon a time, started life as a Prison Break Space Opera AU. (Okay, the Prison Break bit might have more to do with me currently being into Coldwave and basically picturing Mike and Keelan as if played by Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell...)

And I’m a little sad that I didn’t read it sooner, because the yuletide nominations are closed - then again, it’s the first book in a trilogy, all of which is published and right there to be read. Next year, though. Next year.

A bit of google-fu later and apparently Svolgart has also published paranormal romance m/m novels in English under a pseudonym, This does not exactly lessen my suspicions. Also, apparently Livets Barske Lektie will be published in English under the title of “Learning the Hard Way”. Which would make the yuletide fic more realistic to hope for, though part of what is cool about the book is that it’s in Danish, you know? Oh well…

09:09 pm: So much for my dreams of an epic 80s set Krøniker fra Kvæhl tv show (it could have been epic)
So, I was at the library tonight, and for no particular reason (okay, I was trying to see if I could take the pokestop behind the library without having to actually go behind the library) I wandered into the children's library and spotted the new edition of Knusum Kranikum on display, so I picked it up to see if I could tell what was new about it.

It had a foreword.

Talking about how Dennis Jürgensen had felt they needed an update, because back when they were written - in the late 80s - Catharina and Arnold didn't have access to all these newfangled things like internet and cell phones. And I'm just - why?

Yes, yes, new readers, and I know I'm not the target audience for the new editions, but - I just. Why? (I'm feeling a bit like when I heard that they'd started publishing brand new The Three Investigators stories - apparently the German publishers kept the series going and going?)

Well, at least I suppose it's a good thing I didn't nominate "Krøniker fra Kvæhl" for Yuletide.
