foreverrhapsody: Snow White is dead. (Scarlet Witch. Wistful. Gorgeous.)

  • Night shift wasn't bad. Business usually slows down during the colder months, and if you combine that with the construction (which has taken out half of our lights, making it look like we're closed) it's no wonder we didn't have much business. We only had one customer in the hour before closing, so everything got done quickly and I was home before midnight.
  • Comics! The solicits for Children's Crusade have me worried beyond all belief for the rest of the series, but fingers crossed everything will turn out relatively all right. As long as Wanda is alive and not mistreated by the end of the series, I'll be happy. X-Factor's still keeping me happy. As I'm sure you've all noticed, I'm a big fan of soap opera drama, and recent happenings in X-Factor are right along those lines. My only issue is that can't wait until Emanuela Lupacchino comes back. I don't mind Leonard Kirk's art, but I like Emanuela's a lot better. I read Wolverine and the X-Men #1 today through dubious sources (;-) ) and wow, was that a fun comic or what? The art was great, the story was amusing and it just flowed the whole way until the end. I'm definitely buying this series. There's a hole in my pull list now that Alpha Flight got downgraded back to a miniseries, and once Children's Crusade finishes, there'll be another hole to fill.
  • Speaking of Emanuela, she's on Twitter now, as well as her inker Guillermo Ortego! I met him at NYCC and he's a great guy, so go follow her and go follow him too!
  • Also, I ate coconut M&M's. They're... interesting. I like coconut, but they're almost too strong for me.
  • As I was listening to music before work yesterday, I got an idea for NaNoWriMo. An idea that will require extensive planning and research. And it's five days before November. Should I attempt it? Anyone want to listen to some of my blather? Once I get everything else I wanted to get done today, I think I'll write up some of my ideas and see if they take shape.
  • (OH COME ON. PAD just posted on Facebook, saying no one online has come close to guessing what happens at the end of X-Factor #227. This had better be the biggest mind trip of the century, that's all I'm saying.)

Ooh, Emanuela on Twitter, coolness. Always nice to find new ways to stalk my comic book folks :) And speaking of which, damn you PAD. I think I might be doing Facebook wrong - I don't maintain my page but I do have a login, but whenever I look at PAD's page all I can see is basic biog stuff. Do I have to friend him or something to read his infernal teases? If he's dropping hints I want to see them! Do you have a link?

Gah, Nanowrimo already... Where's the time going?

The link to the specific post is here. If you can't see that, you probably have to friend him or like his page, I can't remember which. He's pretty quick at accepting it, so you shouldn't have to wait too long. It wasn't much of a hint, it's just what he said about the Longshot/Shatterstar connection.

It's crazy. I can't even believe it's almost 2012. Where has the year gone? Is this what happens when you enter the real world? Time speeds up?

Aha, I can see that link after all, thanks. Damn the man. I wonder what insanity he has planned. Like you say, after all this plugging it better live up to the WTF hype ;)

I was wondering if maybe the 'current' Layla turns out to be a Doombot and the real one's still slumming it in Latveria. But that's probably too obvious :)

Doombots are indeed a bit overplayed. :D

Actually, speaking of Latveria, I'm kind of thinking the thing 'Star and Layla were talking about, whatever went down while they were there, has something to do with the Scarlet Witch. That may be just because I want some sort of connection between X-Factor and Children's Crusade beyond their appearance in issues 6 and 7.

And this song is now stuck in my head. THANKS. My iPod isn't even on me so I can't get it out. <3

I take that back. #227 comes out on the 16th of November, and then we get two issues in December.

I've been listening to Barenaked Ladies all day. They're part of what inspired my NaNoWriMo ideas.

Seeeeriously. I'm going to cry. SO MANY CRIES.
I can only hope it's some weird "Christmas Carole" thing. Or a DR thing. Or just... I don't know. Weird hallucination or whatever and Layla's just playing EVERYONE because she needs Rahne to think she's going to kill them or SOMETHING. asdfiuaspfudas CANNOT DEAL.

I could definitely see some sort of weird hallucination, but from what? Bad drug trip?

I was also thinking that maybe it'll have something to do with her code name "Butterfly," like butterflies emerging from the cocoon and all that. Is that too weird? No, that's definitely not too weird for this comic.

Pip doing something? I could see that.

Hmmm maybe? 'cause originally everyone was like OH BUTTERFLY EFFECT KINDA? and then how she brought the butterfly back to life and yeah, perhaaaaaps. She'd be deep like that.

OH SHIT BUTTERFLY EFFECT. I knew that's where her code name originated, but I hadn't thought of the possibility that that's what could effect what's going on. That still doesn't explain what will be happening, but it's kind of a possible explanation for the trippiness.

Yuuup! Totally could be. But hmm...

Do it! I'm in dire need of more people to NaNo with this year. And I'm ALWAYS up for blathering if writing is involved. :D

Well, as there are a lot of people on my flist doing it as well, I guess that leaves me no choice. I might not stick to the word count per day unless I really get into it.

im sort of in the same situation! if you do it I'll do it! (about nanowrimo)

Okay, I'm convinced!

Yay for the BNL reference!

If the idea is one that you think is worth pursuing then you should.

I've been listening to them all day. They're part of my inspiration for my NaNoWriMo novel idea.
