A great actor and a great man, he will be missed

midnightmurdina broke me. once again. thanks to Rogue Events Cassandra Clare I am brassic,
But i am so far from complaining i'm on another plane of existence.
Today after a bit of faffing I ordered two things that make me smile (metaphorically)

The first thing I did today was I paid for my ticket for City of Heroes 2 which runs May 13-15 of this year
The line up was already amazing, and I was planning on getting a ticket after sorting out another con, but then, as it always does, my luck (or Herondale Law i'm not sure which) struck and I had to change my plans.

Colton Haynes (Roy Harper/Arsenal, Arrow) was announced to be in attendance, and as everyone knows, I am one of Arsenal's biggest fans. so ofcourse I rearranged things, dug up the last of my birthday money and placed an order on friday, luckily Rogue gives you 7 days to pay before it voids your order and you have to start over :D

He joins 4 other favorite actors of mine from the Arrow/Flash verse. but he will always be number 1. even if Stephen (Ollie/Arrow) himself joins and you can quote me on that.

The other....
I pre ordered a special (as far as I know UK only) copy of Cassandra Clare's Lady Midnight, out March 8th, which among other things Includes a Map. I love Cassandra's maps of the different Shadowhunter protected cities, and for once the UK gets one without us having to send off to the US.

Theres only 1000 copies available or so i've been told.
now. I love the cover of the proper copy, when it was released i had it all over my desktop, but i had to decide between a cover and extras :D no contest.


Awesome right?

flynyddoedd diwedd - Years end
2015 Is nearing its end ppl!
And its around this time that I do my little write up. but it seems, that the last two years i've had a lot of fire, and a lot of stuff to round up. this year... I dunno, I can't seem to kick myself into writing this.
but lets see how we go shall we?ok ❤️
so:Collapse )

2015 questionnaire
1. What did you do in 2015 that you'd never done before?
went to my first London 'day' convention - the November MCM Expo: to say the least it has made me want to attend more, time and money willing.

2. Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I don't make resolutions as a rule, it's just another way of disappointing yourself, and i'm pretty well versed in that most of the year without one specific deadline

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
with my head for getting dates wrong I could be way off, but I'm sure someone did in the hometown of Robin Hood

4. Did anyone close to you die?
not close to me, that I am aware of.
But the year has seen the candles dimmed on three great men of the Sci-fi / Fantasy world:
Sir Christopher Lee - 27th May 1922 - 7th of June 2015

Leonard Nimoy - 26th of March 1931 -  27th February 2015
Terry Pratchett OBE - 28th of April 1948- 12th March 2015

Also the Wrestling world lost Rowdy Roddy Piper who was a hero to my Parabatai

5. What countries did you visit?
6. What would you like to have in 2016 that you lacked in 2015?.
Can't think of anything that isn't glaringly obvious.

ok maybe a Seraph blade.

7. What dates from 2015 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?

30/1/2015 - Faebles 2 - Starfury - not my first encounter with the Wolf and the Mesmer, but defiantly a keeper, "fritz" and "me porn." and Kris sitting on the Piano singing when we first arrived after remembering us :D
Rachel Skarsten admitting shes a Power Ranger fan :D

26/04/2015 - Wales Comic con part 1 - IPW Rogue Events - I had been counting down to this one. two of my dream meets in the same room. I missed my photoshoot with Amy Manson (Daisy, Being Human) due to unforseen circumstances, but I met her and she was kind enough to take a picture with me over the table, I also was greeted by Jemima Rooper (Thelma, Hex) who recognised me, one of the few times being 'unique' looking has been in my favour.
Amy and Jemima were sat beside one another but I did not have the courage or the grip on myself at that time to ask for a selfie with them both, I do however have a photoshoot with Jemima from the other convention.

08/05/2015 - Miracle Day 2 - Starfury - Originally meant to go to asylum but the guest list increased, the madness increased and the jobless centres bs metere increased so I had to cancel, I found myself free however and able to attemd Miracle Day after all. my first meeting with John Barrowman in his 'fandom' persona. rather than his 'book author' persona which I did not like. Fan-friendly John was blue as Azurite.

31/05/2015 - Manchester Film and Comic Confrom the people who brought us "Manchester collectormania." way back when Here I finally met David Hewlett (Dr Rodney McKay, SG:A) I took the figure of him Kim had given me for my birthday and he said it looked more like a Troll than him. and only autograph wrote "love and trolls."

15/05/2015 - city of heroes - Rogue Events - Here I met Stephen Amell, Rick Cosnett (1 of 2 meetings) and of course. got to be embarrassed to death by Jason Momoa once again.

12/06/2015 - Insurgence 7- Rogue Events - although the main star was Ian Somerhalder, i was there for the two Daniels ; Gillies and Sharman, all three were amazing.

17/07/2015 - Wolfsbane 3- Rogue Events - this convention has a special resonance, it was believed to be the last of its name but has since been proved false. it was also the place I met the man of the year Colton Haynes

25/07/2015 - MCM Manchester - Where I met Karl Yune and Katrina Law (Maseo and Nyssa from Arrow)

22/11/205 - Newcastle Film and Comic Con - all for the sake of a piccie with Tom Burke (the Musketeers) .

and Em Con as well. though I can't remember the date. in first of two meetings with my lifelong crush Jemima Rooper.

Gig wise I've been to see William Control, The Cruxshadows and Leaves Eyes this year. Also after ten years I FINALLY got to see Bullet for my Valentine. in York.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
I'd been going since before my cousin moved there (far as I can remember). then 'something' stopped me. I'm not entirley sure what but I attribute most of it to a creature I call simply Bleach-bitch. (though I love the Anime it is because of her I discovered it so when I didn't know her name its what I called her, and its stuck even after what she did)

anyway. so I couldn't make myself go to london for money nor love. I missed a lot of opertunities to meet my heroes because of whatever made me a coward of the journey. and it was the journey. i'd been to london since Bleach-Bitch with my dad and had no problems handling it.
but now London has connections with the Shadow World and my dear William Herondale and I had to at least give it another shot. postponed from my 30th birthday 17/12/2014 and not turning out quiet how I'd intended. myself and my Parabatai visited the capital, seeing my cousin and Louiza. saying high to Nicholas Wallpenny  at Covent gardens. and taking very odd 9 and 3 quater photos

9. What was your biggest failure?
there were several guests at conventions this year which I would have liked to meet but was unable. and gigs I was unable to attend. but I wouldn't so much call it a failiure as incentive to do so in future.

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?
had 4 teeth out, does that count?

11. What was the best thing you bought?
now this is debatable. over all Id say without doubt my Arsenal costume I got for City of Heroes but which has seen me through a number of conventions this year. but at the same time i got myself a little birthday present of the reprints of TID and inside it has a map of locations round london.

12. Whose behaviour merited celebration?
good question. theres a fewfor a change

13. Whose behaviour made you appalled and depresssed?
There have been a few people I've seen under the mask of this year, and a few i've been confirmed in my thinking.  I won't name and shame, not my style.
but the highest on this list hasn't changed from last year I don't think. let's put it this way, I am beyond lucky that Family doesn't end with blood (or marriage) or I'd be royally fucked

14. Where did most of your money go?
Geekery of one form or another

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?
Wolfsbane and Wales comic con. no question. finally meeting Colton, Amy and Jemima

16. What song will always remind you of 2015?
ellie goulding on my mind - the only decent 'pop' song I've heard of in a long time.

17. Compared to this time last year, are you:
a) happier or sadder? meh!
b) thinner or fatter? meh!
c) richer or poorer? and double meh!

18. What do you wish you'd done more of?

19. What do you wish you'd done less of?
job seeker related wank

20. How did you spend Christmas?
as with every year I do this a week or so before christmas. this time its earlier than most as its not even my birthday yet.
likely to spend it in the room with a dvd or some old christmas special as every year, or freezing my claws off taking the dog out if its not raining.

21. What was your favourite month of 2015?
may most likely. 2 cons in a month (despite killer con flu between)

22. Did you fall in love in 2015?
23. How many one-night stands?

24. What was your favourite TV programme?
Defiance and Dominion. now both sadly on the 'cancelled inplace of crap' list with Forever and Firefly

25. Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year?
There was a breif respite where I considered making the same mistake I made with Yanlou, bored enough to consider giving someone a second chance. and as per it bit me square in the tuckus.

26. What was the best book you read?
don't think i've picked up a bad book this year, but I think Finishing School by Gail Carriger ranks the 4th ROL book if only for Vieve

27. What was your greatest musical discovery?
Sadly not made one this year. but welcomed back Disturbed :D

28. What did you want and get?
TID american print (although i'm not touching till my 31st tomorrow)
Arsenal cosplay

29. What did you want and not get?
a lot

30. What was your favourite film of this year?
don't have a fave from this year. i missed seeing so many when they came out its a game of catch up again.

31. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?
i'll be 31 (its tomorrow as I write this) and I'm going to London to see Jamie Campbell Bowers band

32. What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?
hmm. not sure. what. i mean. cons probably?

33. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2015?
same as always

34. What kept you sane?
that ship sailed long ago, my friend.
but what kept me tethered (to use Gail Carriger speak) was probably my Parabatai, alpha and familliar.

35. Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?
none. i think my heads given up 'fancying'

36. What political issue stirred you the most?

37. Who did you miss?
didn't see my Demonic dephiler friend as much as i would have liked. and... hmm. one of my cousins has been locked away on a doctorate (i think thatws what shes up to. some Uni thing) and shes one of the only 3 people in my family I gladly interact with

38. Who was the best new person you met?
Kai and Quentin probably. they've weaved in and out of the same cons as me this year.
i've learned new things about people too. some have gone from on the fringes of my life to center-ish

39. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2015.
try to remember that a pumpkin divided against itself cannot gourd

40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year.
All of us have weathered through a storm.
You know they say what doesn't kill you often makes you better.
We live to tell and carry on.
After all, it's nothing but a touch of nasty weather.
Some of us are still around.
You're still the dandy highway man that they're too scared to mention.
And when you board you make us proud.
It's "Admiral on deck!" and we're standing at attention.
Voltaire Captains all.

41. sum your 2015 up in pictures (IN NO ORDER)

3 is still known as the final howl but....Collapse )

This isn't positive, its not negative, its just to get me writing again

so its 30th of September 2015 and the year is drawing in, I don't review till my birthday in december but this is a bit of a round up.

a few things haven't changed despite by trying like my employment status: i stll live at home,
unfortunatley I have been unable to attend either Whitby Goth Weekend due to fund and timing.

and yes all but 3/5 of my immediate "family" are lying backstabbing Da Shu who would like nothing better than to see me end up in a padded room.

BUT I refuse to be brought down by my circumstances or them, I have an amazing Pack which are truer and closer to me than the Da Shu have ever been

The year a lot of amazing things have come my way:

* I went to London three times this year (soon to be four) with my Parabatai and got to at least stand close to jamie Campbell Bower and Aidan Turner,
*I've met two of my favorite actresses, (and two of my longest term crushes) in Amy Manson and Jemima Rooper.

Attended some amazing conventions this year too:

* Starfury -Faebles 2,
* Starfury -Miracle day 2,
* Rogue Events -  City of Heroes,
*Rogue Events - Insurgence 7,
* Rogue Events - Wolfsbane 3,

* the renewal of Wolfsbane for at least another year despite Rogue saying no way in heck.

the good parts of my year brought to you (and me) in part with :

City of Heroes
Wales Comic Con p1
Insurgence 7
Wolfsbane 3
Wales Comic Con p2

and although 2015 isn't over, a lot of the good things coming up in 2016 seem to be by or partly by them as well.
