I: I really love Seattle. I'd love to live there.
Mother: This is why you should be a writer!
Mother: >:')) /imagines me as the next Barbara Kingsolver
I: >:')) /imagines writing gay/asexy scifi forever

This is why most of our conversations end in a null result. XD



GUYS. MIYANO MAMORU HAS A NEW SINGLE OUT. *________________*



He's my favourite seiyuu/Japanese singer ever (and my second-favourite actor). Seriously, guys. I don't talk about him or his music much, but I listen to him all the time and if there were one person I honestly wanted to be, it'd be he. Yes, that's grammatically correct, predicate requires a predicate nominative and not an object, I am not actually talking about this it's just your imagination shhhhhhh. :||||

I'm not going to pretend this is the best thing he's ever done because it's not, but it's exactly the kind of song that made me start listening to his music in the first place, so I'm happy. :)) And he's just so happy and energetic in the MV that it makes up for any lack of entertaining visuals or intriguing concept.

So I told cute girl to text me her address so I could pick her up and then I forgot to leave my phone on so I could read the text, orz.

TL;DR my life sucks )

Let's talk about something happy! I AM IN LOVE WITH SHERLOCK. As evidenced by my fancy new moodtheme and header. 8D It is the best show ever. Sherlock (played by Benedict Cumberbatch, whom I adored in Amazing Grace) is a high-functioning sociopath with symptoms of Asperger's, and he's cruel and cutting and utterly uninterested in even engaging in conversation with the people around him. Or he is until he meets John Watson. And at first it looks like this adaptation might have the same slashy undertones of so many others, except that Sherlock is just ... not interested. (And John is pretty obviously not interested as well, but for different reasons.) Sherlock is not only asexual (actor's comments here and here), he's quite possibly aromantic. And also very possessive. (If I remember correctly, his possessiveness in an aromantic context is detailed in the ace manifesto I linked to first.) Besides these obvious points in his favour, he's also just a delight to watch. Whether you read him as asexual or not, he's such an intriguing character that it's impossible to take your eyes off him. It helps that he's very aesthetically gorgeous.

Obviously I'm more inclined to love the show because of Sherlock's asexuality. I'm not going to deny that -- I've never encountered such a well-known character being portrayed in a way that I can actually relate to, with the possibility of romance not only nonexistent, but the contemplation of such a possibility having no place in the story. That never, ever happens. Sherlock's complete disinterest is one of the most attractive things about the show to me.

But that doesn't change the fact that I would have loved it anyway. The stories are good. The dialogue is witty and fast-paced. The characters are all so delightfully weird, with the exceptions of Donovan and Lestrade; but even they have their own quirks that make them stand out. (My favourite example of a weird bit character: the PA of Sherlock's brother spends all her time looking at her phone, completely off in her own world, completely uninterested in anything that doesn't involve ... well, that doesn't involve her phone. She's amazing. I love her.)

The ending made me froth at the mouth in rage, but it was a good ending nontheless. And it made me love the show more once I got over my initial anger. XD

In conclusion: please ignore the fact that this is the worst attempt to entice anyone into watching anything ever and WATCH THE SHOW. You will not regret it, I promise. And I can provide you with the resources necessary to do so. >8D



On a related asexy note, here's a post about reading Neal Caffrey (White Collar) as a potentially asexual character. It's spot-on, yet I hadn't even considered the possibility. Fascinating.
