this is ur brain

Quick, quick, think of something interesting!

Don-John was all, "Don't miss the black humor in Titus Andronicus when you read it! If you think it's just ultra-violent and boring, you are reading it wrong! >:(" And I took like four pages of notes today, which is kind of insane, and my notes are a scribbly mess anyway, but still. I like to write down things that are interesting, okay. Now let's all watch some Shakespeare in Love and that one Doctor Who Shakespeare episode, and kleenexwoman's pastiche in which a bunch of characters eat Chinese and discuss gender. You know you love it.

Also, I wound up watching the first half of Beowulf finally, since I read it for Lit in English. I only really like Beowulf up until Grendel dies, but I'll stick it out till his mom goes down. But the whole dragon thing, no thanks.

Of course, Crispin played Grendel in the movie, which meant that Grendel was this whiny and pathetic loser monster... which I love. I love failure Grendel who runs home to his mommy. But then I start shipping Grendel/his mom, which is sort of weird because Angelina Jolie in spike gold heels. I do wish Grendel's design had been better, though. Keep the creepy weeping sore shit, but less human... still humanoid, but more monster-y. Less overgrown zombie. And what was with that shrinking bullshit?

I've also been watching episodes of Psych online, hurray. I guess. Psych was one of those shows where I'd seen a good chunk of the episodes but wasn't super into it... until "Lassie Did A Bad, Bad Thing," shame on me. I'm watching the episode where he shoots the Hummel figurines, which is pretty awesome. Oh Lassie. The episode also has the tranny plot, which is a little faily... but not nearly as bad as I expected.

And yes, Shawn is a psycho (generally) and extremely bi and Lassie is grumpy and faily and Gus would make an awesome boyfriend and Jules is adorable. And the fandom sucks. :( I was reading intellific last night and doing a lot of wtf-ing. Which was sort of fun, in a trainwreck-y sort of way.

Finally, I did write stuff. I wrote Re-Animator fic, which I haven't done in like forever but okay. Here's my Herbert/Dan one and this is, of course, the one that's sort of Herbert/the Bride. The one about Herbert and the Bride is probably the most straight-up unapologetically unsettling thing I've ever written and I went around being creeped out for like half an hour after I finished it. Extremely creepy Herbert, urgh.

There were a couple of other prompts I started working on, but didn't finish, and anyway most of them were drifting into less obviously sexy areas, so. Yeah.
