    Probably about time I added something here! Let's see, interests... Reading (fantasy, sci-fi, mystery, classics), music (mostly of the indie/rock/classic rock variety and also player of the instruments - piano and clarinet), select sci-fi shows and anime (Doctor Who, Star Trek, Fullmetal Alchemist, etc., etc.), crafts (crochet, origami (see my pony name: Foldilocks), anything random that happens to strike my fancy such as making fridge magnets with seashells and air plants), table top games, adventure-style computer games, gardening, animals (we have a cat but hope to also have a dog one day), baking, and, most important of all, eating ice cream.
  1. We just finished watching The Crown. It.Was.So.Good. I hope they do a second season...I should check into that. Other than that, watching the X-Files and in season three. There is no way I'm getting through it before it's taken off Netflix, though. So sad.
  2. Thanks, Ammanas! My husband was thinking of doing his reread before Oathbringer by audiobook until I mentioned not knowing if the scene had been rerecorded. May he'll listen up to that point and then pick up our paperback copy.
  3. This is just a quick question and probably overdue in the coming. I apologize if someone else has already asked it, but I couldn't find an obvious topic that answered it in my search. Real quick: Is the rewritten scene at the end of the book now part of the audiobook version of Words of Radiance? Thanks all!!
  4. You know Starswirl and Celestia were totally an item at some point....
  5. Okay, so I haven't been around in awhile... Don't discount my anime recommendations just for that fact. I LOVE Iron Blooded Orphans. I'm an old Gundam fan anyway. Like Quiver, Gundam Wing had a major effect on me - it and DBZ turned me into an anime fan back in the late 90's. Iron Blooded Orphans does have some of the same Gundam troupes, but these guys have guts, man. My husband is a pretty picky anime watcher, but he is totally hooked on it, too. It's gritty, political, has really interesting characters and, of course, cool battles. There's not much to dislike. Maybe Kordelia's impossible hair? Nah, I wish I could have her hair! I've got this huge queue of shows in Crunchyroll and plan to at least give them all a shot. Konosuba is funny, but I'm only in the first season. I think things like fighting cabbages are only funny on certain days. I've watched a bit of A Certain Magical Index and like it well enough, but I keep waiting for something more in the main plot to happen. Naruto Shippuden is always on my to-watch list. After finishing Iron Blooded Orphans, we plan to watch season two of Bungo Stray Dogs. I miss that show and can't wait!
  6. Okay, that's pretty clever! (One of these days, I WILL get my husband to watch that movie. So classic.)
  7. If you loved the movie (I do, too!), read the book sometime, too. Both are excellent in their own right, which doesn't often happen with book and move adaptations. I love that show, too. Anything related to elemental abilities definitely gets a bending reference. We loved Ant Man, too! He's now one of my favorite Avenger verse heroes! Er, don't you mean that your mental image of Kaladin matches Aragorn's description/appearance? Brandon Sanderson is my living favorite author, but Tolkien is just classic. I've been watching Mr. Selfridge via Amazon. Same time period as much of Downton Abbey, but not quick as much angst. Still a good show. Also watching a lot of anime lately via Crunchyroll - Naruto, Lost Village, Re:Zero, Akame ga Kill!, and, I blush to admit it, Sailor Moon Crystal. Oh, and definitely keeping upwith MLP as it airs on Saturdays.
  8. I hope you still read them. I love the appendices. For audiobook, I'm listening to Mad Ship, the middle Live Ship Robin Hobb book. For paperbooks, I'm re-reading the first Alcatraz after having just finished the second book from The Sorrowful Mysteries with Brother Athelstan by Paul C. Doherty. I am also reading a poker book.
  9. I think I'd want mine to be the most epic and never ending Adventure Game (with puzzles). Something where death is not an option and you get to endlessly solve puzzles and uncover mysterious connections the further you go. My best nighttime dreams are like this. I wake up and wish I could go right back to some of them (usually I have to get up, as work beckons).
  10. Kaymyth, sounds like you have an ambitious Con schedule! BronyCon will only be the third I've ever gone to. We're quiet geeks, but I'm really excited. Have fun next weekend! Quiver, thanks for sharing the fandom music! I really liked Spirit of Fire particularly. Can't say I've delved too much into it, but I'm really looking forward to the room that will be constant fandom music.
  11. Hey, it's been so cold and wet where we live that the Hearth's Warming ep fit right in. We still have our heat on. My husband is a huge Dash fan, and he was so, so tickled by her episode. I basically can't dislike any of the musical episodes, and I really love that we have a pony adaptation of The Christmas Carol now. I have to agree that all of Starlight Glimmer's episodes have just been awesome. Anyone going to BronyCon?
  12. Agreed! It hit all the right places for me. My brain was intrigued, my compassion was tapped, and my expectations were totally fulfilled in the ending. (Also, it got my husband hooked, which is a feat.)
  13. See, I just watched the latest Naruto episode today (only just made available earlier this week on CrunchyRoll), and I'm totally okay with filler so long as it's the backstory kind. I love me some backstory. Sorry if this was covered on an earlier page (I haven't been on 17th Shard in a while), but anyone else loving Gundam Iron Blooded Orphans? I'm not caught up yet. The reason is that I got my husband caught on it, and we had to start back at the beginning and only watch it when he's around (he's not a binge watcher like me). We're at around episode 12 or 13 right now. Edit to add: Thanks for talking up ERASED. I don't think I would have stumbled upon this without a recommendation, but the idea intrigues me. (Also, if you like that sort of thing and want to play a board game, check out Tragedy Looper.)
  14. Man, I'm so bummed I missed the signing this time around. I was at the one at that store the last time (the not snowed out one) with a couple friends. I've been MIA on 17th Shard for awhile for computer/work reasons, and didn't see the date until I already had plans booked elsewhere. So sad... The illustrator from Alcatraz was there, too?! Ack!
  15. Hi! I know, it's been forever, right? I can't get online at work at all, and our laptop died almost a year ago (recently replaced ), so I just haven't been able to be around. Besides missing and also neglecting you all, I missed getting notice of the signing in Philly until it was too late thanks to my absence.
