03:01 pm - Hello everybody
It’s me. I’m alive and well. It’s been a long break, but I’m back and I’m posting again. Not here – on dreamwidth. If someone from my f-list is on dreamwidth and would like to add me – please do. I’m [personal profile] maggie33 there, too.

07:23 pm - New TV season
The new TV season is upon us. It started for me with 3 premieres: two of returning shows and one of a new show.

The returning shows are: Brooklyn Nine Nine and Agents of SHIELD. B99 didn’t disappoint and was funny as hell, but AOS was pretty meh for me. I was already losing interest during season 3, and I don’t feel it coming back. I still like Daisy and May and Yo-Yo (Mack and Yo-Yo are super adorable together :)), so I will be watching for now, but I don’t know for how long.

And the new show is The Good Place with Kristen Bell. I liked the first two episodes. Mild spoilers behind the cutCollapse )

Unfortunately the show I’m waiting the most for, The Originals, won’t start until January 2017. I don’t even mind the shorter season, I just want it now, now, now. *is very impatient*

08:33 pm - I wrote something
I re-watched the 3rd season of The Originals lately and it reminded me how much I wanted Marcel/Vincent fics. There are none on AO3, this fandom is not fanfic heavy in general, so I decided to write my own. It’s just a little 350 words ficlet. I haven’t written fanfic in ages and it’s been so nice to do it again. I probably won’t post it anywhere else, I would need a beta-reader to do that, and I don’t even know where to start looking.

So here it is:

Title: It Happened One Night

Fandom: The Originals

Pairing: Vincent Griffith/Marcel Gerard

Rating: teen and up (it was PG-13, R or NC-17 all those years ago when I was still writing fanfic, but I’m using AO3 rating here :))

Summary: Vincent and Marcel establishing relations post season 3

05:38 pm - Let’s talk about TV and theater and movies
Or what I watched during my LJ absence.

Theatre: Maxine Peake’s Hamlet

I watched it at the movies as a part of Shakespeare Lives events. This is my second favorite Hamlet, after Kenneth Branagh’s production (come to think of it, I should made a ranking of all Hamlets I watched in my life as there have been already 12 of them :)). And Maxine Peake as Hamlet – well, she is fantastic and so sexy dressed in a loose white shirt and with that slightly hoarse voice of hers. See for yourself:

Two big pictures behind the cutCollapse )

You can call this whole production a genderbent Hamlet, because not only the title part is played by a woman, but also Polonius (here called Polonia, played wonderfully by Gillian Bevan), Marcellus (here Marcella), Rosencrantz and both gravediggers.

TV: Shadowhunters

I can’t recommend this show with a clear conscience, because it’s rather bad. Bad writing, bad acting (especially main character Clary – Kat McNamara seems like a super nice, adorable girl in interviews and photos, but she’s a very bad actress), bad fight choreography, cheap special effects. But the show did a few things right and these things are:

Spoilers for the 1st season behind the cutCollapse )

Movies: Our little sister – Japanese movie written and directed by Hirokazu Kore-eda

It’s a story about complicated relationships, but also a deep love between sisters, shown subtly and unhurriedly, and with a happy ending. Maybe it is a bit too shallowly optimistic and sentimental at times and conflicts are a little bit too easily resolved, but I don’t care. It made me cry, it made me smile and it gave me something to think about. I plan on buying DVD and watching it a few times more.

Here is the trailer.

And if you’d like to read more detailed reviews these two are good:

07:31 pm - The Originals season 4
So this is me, trying to go back to posting regularly after 8 months long break. And I start with my beloved TV show The Originals and Comic Con trailer for season 4. Although it’s mostly just a recap of the previous 3 seasons. There is maybe 20 seconds of a new footage from season 4.

Watch here

And here are two articles with spoilers for season 4:

07:49 pm - My new fascination
RL is pretty meh lately, nothing specific, just general “work exhaustion + missing my family + it’s so cold and getting dark so early” feelings. But there are a few things that brighten my November evenings. Well, mainly one thing: Hamilton – Lin-Manuel Miranda’s new musical about Alexander Hamilton, one of America’s founding fathers. I’ve been listening to nothing else these past four weeks. You can listen to it for free here.

And here are few other Hamilton links:

Lin-Manuel Miranda singing the opening song from the musical at the White House in 2009

Jonathan Groff, Andrew Rannells and Brian D’Arcy James singing The Schuyler Sisters on Ham4Ham (sort of mini pre-show outside the theater before each showing)

Lin-Manuel Miranda’s tumblr

A Hamilton’s beginner guide (a funny article on hypable)

Ham4Ham with Lea Salonga

Ham4Ham with The Hamilton Children

The article about Hamilton (and George Takei’s new musical Allegiance) on AV Club
