GOTHAM: My Newest Obsession

I must preface my review with the admission that I know little of DC timelines, and Huntress and Batwoman have always been my main interest. I was very interested in this show because of the premise that it’s before Batman’s time. I’d heard good things. But I don’t know anything about nit-picky things that hardcore fans would know, this is just my opinion of the show 🙂 Warning: CONTAINS SPOILERS!!!!

IT’S DAMN GOOD TV!!

I got sucked into this series easily. The gritty quality of the show compared to spoof-like Batman movies was very captivating. It has had some very hard hitting issues take place in the show, one of which is the lovely Barbara going batshit nuts. She was already on the road there as we can see in season 1 with her instability.

I actually really liked Gordon and Barbara being together, and her obsession over him after their break up I find entertaining. How she is oh-so-deliciously-crazy and she half way wants to kill him or be killed by him, how wonderfully maniacal!! I can tell you, I was on the edge of my seat when she went Bridezilla.

I’ve enjoyed her transition in season 3. She is truly crazy and in charge, to a degree. She has her hot assassin girlfriend and her club, how could life be better? Her conversations with Gordon are still really stimulating and she’s just oh-so-funny. “What are you willing to give him?” “Boop!”

As for Jim, my heart bleeds for him as season 3 starts. He finally gets his head out of his ass long enough to go looking for Lee, only to find she’s happy with somebody else! D: WHYYYY. (Not that Lee is my favorite, just crying buckets over here for my little Gordon TT_TT)

His character is so much gruffer than when the series started. Gotham has chewed him up like a meat grinder and you can tell. He is so jaded this season and he truly seems not to care for people’s well being in the way he used to. When he was a cop, he would have done anything to protect Ms. Peabody rather than putting her in harm’s way. I miss this;

Bullock is pretty hilarious. His loyalty to Jim is unwavering, and he is a cool guy. He has put his life and his good name on the line time after time to help his partner. Only a true friend would help you to clear your name once you’ve been convicted of murder. Speaking of…..

Another character I’ve really enjoyed in this series has been Nygma!!!

Obviously, he’s seen better days and I am glad he is out of Arkham. I was really into it when he was on his killing spree, becoming the person he truly was. I thought it was so creepy yet cool how he chose to help Penguin in the woods and asked him to help him be a better murderer. His logical problems and riddles were adorable, and I couldn’t help but love him to pieces in the first season, the little geek. He reminded me of all the nerdy guys I knew grewing up, who found it difficult to approach girls.

His obsession with Miss Kringle was endearing, but his descent into madness after he accidentally killed her was the best. That was really good TV, and his plan to frame Gordon was very good. This show has the best way of ending episodes with endings that leave you screaming for more. I think hubby & I watched the whole series in a span of like 3 days haha

Image result for alfred pennyworth gotham

I freaking love Alfred Pennyworth to death in this series. It never occurred to me before just what kind of childhood Batman endured after his parent’s death. I just always skipped ahead to his adulthood. I had given no thought to who first taught Bruce to fight. Alfred is a total bad ass in this series, granted he does get his ass kicked or stabbed frequently though lol

His personality is really spot on with the posh accent bit, but then he gets totally bad ass in defending Bruce. He will stop at nothing to find Bruce. I read a really touching fanfiction online actually that made me fall even more in love with his character: read it here

My Old Son by Pickwick12
All about the developing relationship of Gotham’s Bruce Wayne and Alfred Pennyworth as they cope with the deaths of Thomas and Martha Wayne, because they deserve more fanfiction. Will follow the show but have original content. Potential spoilers for any episodes that have aired on US TV. Chapters 1-86 are companions to Season 1, 87-131 to S2, and 132 on go with S3

Lastly, my favorite villain is probably this guy.

Image result for cobblepot mayor gotham

He’s just so fuckin’ wiley. I was ever so glad that Arkham didn’t beat the crazy out of him and he still had some leftover to give that bitch Grace what she deserved. That was horrible part to see one of my favorite characters go through. I am pretty enthralled by his recent developments, but not surprised. He somehow always has a way of coming out on top, that Penguin. I love his new and stronger alliance with Nygma, I can’t wait to see how they make their mark on the city.

Off to Eagerly await new episodes…….

Happy Mother’s Day

This is the most apt thing I’ve seen in a while.

How to Break a Broken Man by BattyNora
In Terminus, Gareth tells Rick that, as ringleader, he must pick one of the group in the train car to be sacrificed, but Rick refuses. Gareth attempts to convince Rick to choose by using Daryl, who has obviously already been beaten. To them it’s about enjoyment of causing people pain, both physical and mental, not about just getting food.

The Backcountry by silversundown
Survival horror, backwoods style: A weekend vacation to a tiny lakeside cabin turns out to be more than Carol bargained for. When Ed feels especially bad about a fight he takes her there to make up for it, but this time they aren’t the only ones roaming the woods. Faced with the real possibility of not surviving the trip Carol will have to make more than a few hard choices.


CAROL IS MY DARYL

In my perusal of the net lately, Carol has been getting a lot of shit!!! >o< WTF people? Bunch of haters. I absolutely love Carol and she is one of the shows most dynamic characters. She’s evolved into a stronger than steel woman from the poor battered wife she used to be.

When the group got to Alexandria and she posed as a timid woman to trick everyone about her cold and lethal viewpoint of the world, it was genius. She made it sound like she wasn’t brutal and ready to KILL. I thought some of her interactions with the annoying do-gooder Morgan were some excellent moments on TV. I was cheering on Carol as she tried to kill Morgan, because I believed more in what she believed- NO MERCY FOR YOUR ENEMIES. If they don’t kill them, they’ll come back to get them later. There will be no peace in letting your enemies live.

KEEP CALM AND
LOOK AT THE FLOWERS

I think it rattled Carol to step back into her timid self persona. She used this trick to pull the wool over the eyes of the Alexandria citizens and she and Maggie’s captors. She acted like she was a nervous nelly like she used to be, and maybe it did fuck her up, the poor thing. But she’s not a pussy now, guys!!! That’s what I keep seeing, people are disappointed/not understanding of her most recent actions in season six. She abandons the group, because she says she can’t kill for them anymore. Suddenly, she can’t bear to kill when she used to be the best at it, ruthless when she had to be.

Give Carol a friggin break, she held it together when she had to kill her adopted psycho daughter. I think she has been long due for a break down, so let her have it, people. She’ll wind back up with the others eventually. Carol always finds her way back.

So you need to come back from Kingdom.

WARNING: Obsessive Fangirl Moment

THANK YOU NETFLIX, YOUTUBE & HULU! GOD BLESS YOU FOR GIVING ME SOMETHING TO MINDLESSLY DO FOR HOURS AND HOURS. I AM WAY TOO OBSESSED WITH THIS SHOW x_x

Finally watched the first episode of season 5!!! I’m so friggin excited. It’s torture having to wait for more. I absolutely loved Merida, and hope to see more of her. This website is really fun to peruse, the picture above came from it and there are many more gems.

I’ve been writing my own Once Upon a Time fanfic feverishly lately. I’ve lost a lot of sleep and been irresponsible, staying up so late I’ve even been late to work. I’ve literally been staying up all hours of the night working on writing again. The one sitting the other day, I pumped out nearly four whole chapters and they weren’t short neither. That hardly NEVER happens. I am elated to be doing something I enjoy. It’s fun having an obsession again.

Without further ado, the byproduct of my obsession:

I am up to date on all things Once Upon A Time now!! I signed up for Hulu and watched all of season 4. I absolutely loved loved loved ALL THE CAPTAIN SWAN ACTION!! They are truly my favorite cannon pairing. Watch this video for the cuteness:

Anyway, I did write the story featured above. It’s a plot bunny I felt the need to chase because watching the series, I think these two deserve a little more exploration. Lily and Emma together could have been a great duo to see, so I’m giving them their chance while I can 🙂 Plus, I can’t resist me some Wooden Swan action either. 

PostSecret of the Week:neverbelieveme

In other news, I have been having some horrible, terrible, no good health complications. I will make this brief since it upsets me to have to think about. I have ovarian cysts that are scaring the shit out of me and making me super uncomfortable. I have been living glued to a heating pad, until today. I went to the Indian Clinic and they prescribed me more things for pain and they seemed to help a lot. I was in a lot of pain, actually. I keep telling Jake my insides feel soupy, and I’m actually pretty scared because one of these cysts burst last week and it was the worst pelvic pain I’d ever experienced. I am scared it will happen again 😦 I am afraid to jostle myself, and Jake is being extremely patient seeing as we found out after my E.R. visit that he and I can’t have sex for awhile. He is being surprisingly cool about it so far… but it’s still early.

Symptoms of Ovarian Cysts

The signs and symptoms of ovarian cysts, if present, may include:

  • Pelvic pain — a dull ache that may radiate to your lower back and thighs
  • Pelvic pain shortly before your period begins or just before it ends
  • Pelvic pain during intercourse (dyspareunia)
  • Pain during bowel movements or pressure on your bowels
  • Nausea, vomiting or breast tenderness like that experienced during pregnancy
  • Fullness or heaviness in your abdomen
  • Pressure on your bladder that causes you to urinate more frequently or have difficulty emptying your bladder completely

Latest Obsession: Once Upon A Time

Team Captain Swan


I recently finished all of the seasons available to me on Netflix. I absolutely loved this series and it drove my boyfriend crazy having to binge watch it with me. I really like Emma, Rumplestiltskin, Regina, Henry, and Hook. Charming and Snow can get on my nerves from time to time. Zelena was quite a cool bad ass, and I was stunned by how horrible Cora was to Regina, her own daughter. I actually quite like Rumplestiltskin from the beginning, loathsome as his origin is. His character kept so much of the series evolving and his presence made so many things move forward. I was pleased when the chipped cup and Belle came into play.

Quite honestly, the cast is full of babes in this series. Forgive me for saying so. Jennifer Morrison has to pour herself into her Savior outfits, her tight jeans and boots. I like her spunk and her willingness to redeem herself in the first season. She felt guilty for giving Henry up, and couldn’t leave knowing he wasn’t happy. Noble character trait, I quite enjoyed how she was willing to go round for round with Regina.

Speaking of which, I absolutely fucking adored past Regina’s outfits. Her dark heart has been through so much. She really makes me think of the quote, “A villan is just a victim whose story hasn’t been told.” I found it so uplifting how her love for her adopted son was so great that her desire to change allowed her to wield light magic & defeat Zelena. I was so happy for her when she was able to snatch Rolland from danger and thus won Hood’s heart and things were looking up for her. I like that she and Emma ended up on the same sign, and how they took cues from each other during the journey to Neverland to save Henry.

I must say, one of the characters I really adore is Hook. His zesty flirting and guyliner is enough to get a girl going, but the accent does wonders, too. I was cheering for Emma, and I adored all the ways they looked at each other. When Regina had to save them from Pan’s curse and they said good-bye to each other, I was on the edge of my seat and feeling such sweet anticipation from the way they looked at each other, yet never touched. His love for Emma is so deep and noble. He transcends his character type to do all he can for Emma and her family, because he knows how much her family means to her. You notice he and Millah made the decision to ditch Baelfire, maybe this time around he knows that’s not an option. I was devastated when Neal was in the picture lol I definitely did not want him to get back with Emma, even though they said they loved each other. Too bad, so sad Henry, you need to let your mom have some of that hot pirate booty!! 😛

Captain Swan Recommendation:
Fluffy Fridays by jdmusiclover
A series of unrelated, fluffy one shots featuring Killian Jones and Emma Swan and the relationship that makes us all swoon. Will contain both canon and AU stories. My contribution to Operation Rainbow Kisses and Unicorn Stickers (aka, my attempt to drown out the season 4 finale angst with ridiculous levels of fluff.)


What Once Upon a Time couple is most like your relationship?Emma and Regina

[Short blurb, AU] This is what happens when my two loves OITNB and OUAT collide 😀

Killian stumbled up to the bar where he had sighted his long time friend and drinking buddy, Alex Vause. Her dark and sexy, tall feminine figure was seated at the bar drinking a martini when he sat down beside her. “Vause,” he greeted in his hearty timber and she nodded in greeting. After he flagged the bartender down, he took a moment to really appreciate the alluring picture his very lesbian friend made. It was quite confusing to his crotch, seeing her pale alabaster skin and exposed cleavage and red lips and glasses and then seeing a big red X beep over her image; Off limits. Sometimes though, like now, he forgot. He had just caught sight of a moussey-haired girl across the bar making eyes their way, and not at him. “You’re so beautiful tonight lass, I forget that you’re the competition sometimes,” he joked, directing himself towards Alex. “How am I your competition?” she scoffed, raising a curious eyebrow. “It’s totally different. I take girls who like other girls, which means I’m not stealing from your pool,” she elaborated. “You know damn well you take some of the best straight ones, too,” he pouted, and she laughed because that was no lie.
