I wrote this post on LiveJournal 10 years ago and thought it’d be fun to do a little reflection on it. It contains the anguished, suicidal thoughts of a 17 year old largely uniformed on the topic of trans issues, inhaled a bit too much of that toxic masculinity, and fearful of how to express what he’s feeling to others. Italicized is what is from that entry. Comments were disabled when I posted it (a shame, because I think I likely may have gotten some good advice from the older and more informed people I followed), so I have nothing to share on that front.

Technically, it was written the day after National Coming Out Day )

I’m so bummed I was late to the X-Men: Apocalypse train. It has been over a decade since I saw a movie in theaters that I completely fell in love with and wanted to see again and again. Had I seen it sooner, I probably would have at my local theater. I liked the previous X-Men movies (First Class, Days of Future Past) a lot, but this one really sealed me as a fan and completely renewed my interest in them. It hasn’t gotten great press, but I’m mostly (mostly) past the point of caring that my opinion is in the minority.

I don’t think I can manage a proper review that wouldn’t just be an endless stream of “I loved this! And this! Why? Because! It’s so good! The whole cast! Amazing!” gushing, but I’m highly tempted to write an essay on Charles’s development throughout the films. It is such a richly compelling and satisfying character arc that I haven’t been able to stop thinking about for weeks, it’s ridiculous.

Non-kinky Phoenix Wright Kink Meme fill, written for Day One of the Wright-A-Thon, and this request: ANYTHING WITH ACRO. Max, Regina, Bat, Ben/Trilo, Phoenix, someone totally unrelated, just…something involving Acro.

This is a post-Turnabout Big Top fic about Acro’s stay in prison, and the visitor who comes to see him. No warnings, apart from the fact that I haven’t written in nearly two years and may be rusty.

Acro was not a stranger to quietness. )

I beat it about a week ago and meant to post about it sooner, but life happened and I increasingly procrastinated on posting my thoughts. Overall, I really preferred the open-ended ambiguity of the last ending, but I still enjoyed this a lot and I'm glad I played it.

Scattered notes I wrote on my phone and spoilers )

Finished Tales of Graces today! The main storyline, that is. I'm going to post my thoughts on it before I get into Lineage and Legacies.

Spoilers for the main storyline, natch )

As fun and motivating as it's been, trying to finish a book and a video game per month has proven to be intensely stressful for me when I'd rather be taking my time with them. And besides, I have other places to log media:

GoodReads - books and non-Japanese comics (...because listing all the volumes of manga I've read would take forever, and I have a MAL to keep track of my manga)
HowLongToBeat - video games
Letterboxd - movies
MyAnimeList - anime and manga
Visual Novel Database - visual novels, because HLTB doesn't have all of them...

The only base I don't have covered is a place to track tv shows outside of anime. Anyone know of any?

ETA: Done!

I've been playing Tales of Graces f, which I got on its release day years ago but hadn't gotten around to playing until now. I'm enjoying it a lot! I'm about 10 hours in, at the part after you've beaten [SPOILER] at Wallbridge. I haven't really blogged about many games as I've gone along playing them and, as a result, I usually end up forgetting a lot about them--in fact, that's what happened with this game, despite me only taking about two days away from it. So I wanted to try and change that and record my thoughts as go along. That, and I think something Big (dare I say, game-changing) is about to happen, and I wanted to post a bit of speculation too...because I haven't played a game of "Called it!" in a while.

Spoilers up to the point I've reached )
