▪ Finished playing The Walking Dead game and just... so much love for it. ♥  I especially loved how there was a painting of Judith decapitating Holofernes on the wall in the room when you're looking for Mark and how the entire situation going on in the house mirrors the Biblical story in Episode 2 . It was a nice little touch, imo. :)  Also played The Cat Lady, a horror adventure game, which is kind of... think the creepy fucked-up sister of Dexter meets Dead Like Me. I definitely recommend it if you're interested in a game which has surreal art and succeeds in creating a generally unsettling atmosphere. But I should warn you beforehand that there's a number of triggering elements in it counting suicide, depression, threats of rape and gore.

I've watched the second season of American Horror Story. So, I don't think it's any secret that Jessica Lange, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy and Sarah Paulson were amazeballs this season! I overall enjoyed it quite a lot, maybe expect for one thing...

The entire 'lesbian character gets raped and - not able to carry through with an abortion because of the trauma - is forced to give birth to the product of said rape' deal. Which... yeah, was an entire subplot that made me feel extremely uncomfortable and I could have done without.  

To all the people out there who ship Dr. Thredson/Lana (as in, 'are writing smut fics about them'  - seen some of those) and who are saying stuff like "Johnny Thredson is suu h0t" and that Lana was a bitch for shooting the mental case....

Judging you. So goddamn hard.

Bomb Girls continues to please me! I just wanna kiss all their faces for being precious~ Can't say I care much for Gene's character personally, but I can see why the writers have introduced us to him.

Here, enjoy Regina and Emma being magical "heterosexuals":

Best combination of a song and a Regina gif, imo. I thought it was funny! But mebbe you need to get the reference...

"Lesbihonest" vid. Everything is automatically awesome when you slow it down~

Regina/Emma AU!Gladiators. My poor gonads can't deal with stuff like this... it's not fair.

This is basically begging to be turned into a fic! Seriously.

▪ Not gonna lie, I enjoy how the gifs and the song kinda match up here~ :3 Such hard work for me to find any material to work with (.... yeah right).

I was super iffy about 90% of this season AHS, but holy crap I loved the finale. And I loved Lana. And we wouldn't have seen 90% of Lana's awesomeness if so much of the crappiness hadn't happened to her? IDK, I am trying to justify it, I guess? I HATE MYSELF, lol. But jesus, I had to lie in bed and hyperventalate/sob after the episode with MULTIPLE rapes (er, the one where Threadson actually has Lana in his lair).

Have you seen season 1 of AHS? I'm trying to decide whether or not to give it a try. I'll probably try season 3 since Paulson is going to star again.

I absolutely get what you're saying. It's kinda hard to talk about without the emotional attachment over the character getting in the way of the critical analysis. If it had been any other show, with any other lead I wasn't as attached to, I would have quit the show the second I smelled a whiff of rape. I actually have a self-preservation rule. :)

Hah! That's true :P
