Rants and Weekly Raves (RAWR) #350

Trotwood: Watching less but reading a LOT more webtoons and novels and watching Youtube videos on cooking and places I want to travel when the world truly begins to recover. Just got a notice that Switzerland will be voting on June 23 about whether it will open up to US and Canadians who are full vaccinated, and because I clicked on that information so fast, I also got invited to put my name in for a free trip!! I never win anything, but it did make me smile during my lunch break. kakashi: I'll stay here/in the mountains for a while until everyone who has travel urges has traveled :D The world will be a crowded place, don't you think? It's actually just the government who is going to decide on June 23 so the chances are high. You're more than welcome here, Trot!   This, of course means that I have completely given up on trying to catch up on anything. Also, there seems to be a gazillion Korean drama premiering this week, but I don't feel badly at all because I'm

Cubic (A SnarkCap) - Episode 15

  Shuk: Has Ruthainark finally realized her feelings? Has she realized his? Will these SnarkCaps ever finish? Stay tuned! Trotwood: At this point, I didn't think she'd realize her feelings even after they were married with 6 kids! But hope does spring eternal. Kmuse : Nark might be one of the dimmest leading ladies I have watched in my long drama watching career. Yet, somehow I still find myself rooting for her happy ever after. (nodding in agreement)

Trotwood: I'm drowning in being behind in dramas. I've just given up on some, even those I really like. I'm still two weeks behind Miss Monte Cristo, and there are so many more dramas coming our way. I thought I'd have more time once my semester was over, but then I signed up for two Korean classes and there are all those projects to prepare for a fall that still has moving health targets, and I already feel like summer is over. I love sports dramas, but it looks like I'm not going to even start Racket Boys. I love Zhu Li Long even more than sports dramas, but there is no way I'm going to have the energy for his 40-episode angst-filled The Rebel though it looks lovely. KOREA Sell Your Haunted House Viki is subbing this drama really slowly, so no. I have NOT seen the last episode because Viki hasn't subbed it yet, so please, NO SPOILERS. The egg ghost is back, and I'm not going to lie, it's always freaked me out. I was impatient only because they had

Fanfiction: The Moon Mirror (Pojing & Bai Qian Alternative Ending) - Chapter 4 (Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms 三生三世十里桃花)

  Chapter 4 written by LalaLoop edited by Kakashi     consulting by Bunny “Just one more time, Qianqian, I’ll get it!” A-li grabbed her sleeve and began to swing her arm to and fro. “One more time.” Bai Qian had been teaching the boy a simple spell to summon fire onto a wooden stick. So far, A-li had not been successful. She sighed, smiling. “All right, one more time and then bedtime.” “Yes!” he jumped, waving his stick. Bai Qian stooped down and moved the candle they’d been working with closer to the edge of her desk. “Concentrate,” she said. “This is a summoning spell. You’re not making a flame, you’re moving it from the candle to the tip of your stick. So think about the distance between the two objects, not the fact that your stick has to burn.” A-li squeezed his eyes close. Bai Qian stood back and couldn’t help giggling at his serious expression. Suddenly his eyes sprang open, A-li breathed in deeply and shot his palm forward. Bai Qian was prepared to see t

Trotwood: Thank goodness for the long three-day weekend, but even though I didn't do much but cook for my visiting daughter and eat instead of all the other stuff I planned, I'm still tired. I think I just need a real vacation!! There are still way more dramas coming out than I have time to watch. kakashi: We're all going to need a year long vacation from this lost Covid year. And it's not over yet. Yesterday, I watched Belgravia only to realize about halfway through that I... have watched it before. Wow, brain. Well done. Here is the show that I'm probably never going to watch but looks like it could be zany fun. Did anyone watch Mad for Each Other ? I love Joe Chen, but I can't commit to a 47-episode show about pilots. Anyone watching New Horizon ?
