We watched series 2 of The Hour on Saturday, and, uh. Goddamn. I can't believe the BBC just fucking cancelled it after all that ending. [ profile] paper_tzipporah and I were very much Not Okay during the whole finale (literally clutching each other, okay, it was INTENSE), much to the amusement of [ profile] metonymy and [ profile] mcwonthelottery. Anyway, I need to write that story where the news team plus Marnie are in this complicated polyamorous relationship - because Hector realizes not only that Bel and Freddie are a package deal but also he's kind of okay with that, and Bel and Lix have this ~thing together, sometimes with Freddie, and everyone falls more than a little in love with Marnie, and really it takes a village to raise a baby, you know?

In conclusion: The Hour, guys. I was not at all expecting to love it as much as I do, and you should all check it out if you have the chance. Totally worth it, even considering the epic emotional cliffhanger it ends on.

I'm trying to get back into the habit of going for a walk/run (or whatever you'd call that thing where you sprint for 30-60 seconds, walk for 5 minutes, rinse and repeat) every night. I don't remember consciously giving up on it last winter, but it's been almost a year and I'm just now getting the itch to get up and prowl around my neighborhood back. Feels good, but we'll see how long my resolve lasts once the weather starts to turn cold again.

(On the flip side of that: it's almost autumn, which is my favorite season, and that means it's almost time to go apple-picking, which in turns means I should start looking for a better pie dish and more tupperware for when I make applesauce. :D :D :D)

In actual conclusion, here is my fashion tag on tumblr. Uh, for no reason other than I feel like the pretty with you. Happy Tuesday?

The two hours I spent listening to Summer Love on repeat were also good. In case you were wondering.

:') Summer Love is possibly my favorite song on that album, so good choice!

Mine toooooooo. :D That album is my favorite of the two just in general, though I do like a couple tracks off the first one.

Yeah the second album is definitely better. I like some songs off the first, but I adore all of the second (minus a few songs). :DDD

Also there is not NEARLY enough good fic. I read some mediocre fic, because I am helpless in the face of melodramatic unplanned pregnancies, apparently. And now I need to re-watch season one. Also I just finished reading an epic Skyfall fic where Q is Orpheus and Bond is Eurydice, and I wanted to leave a comment at the end but I didn't know how to put my feelings of wanting to clutch the fic to my chest and cuddle it into words.

Also I don't seem to have any icons for Bel or Lix or Freddie or, well, anyone. PROBLEMS, MUST FIX.

Are there good fanvids for The Hour? Because I could see there being an excellent fanvid that's just all the times Bel and Freddie communicate wordlessly. I want that to be a vid.

Um, link to that Skyfall fic? Because that is definitely something I need to read.

There are some good fanvids! I found a bunch on YT a couple weeks ago after we finished s1, so I'll look them up later and email you the ones I liked.

OOH I loved The Hour. I read a thing about how they planned to do the 3rd series and I really wish we could've gotten to see that.

Also, I love your fashion tag on tumblr! Where do you find all that stuff? I set up a "fashion" tumblr - I planned to post my own designs and creations there, but haven't got to it yet. It's just reblogs of stuff rn.

A bunch of people I follow on tumblr post/reblog a lot of fashion-related stuff, so mostly I just reblog from them! Though one of my favorites is a friend's fashion/design-centric blog (, so a lot of the posts on my tag come from her. XD
