Two (Or Three) Things And A Meme

For those that might have used it, Imzy is shutting down. I never made a single post or comment, but I had registered at some point. I just never went back after that.

Rosario Dawson is reportedly in talks to play Cecilia Reyes in the New Mutants film; also, that film will apparently go full on horror. I'm not sure what to think about that.

Edit: Correction, it's three things of note. It turns out the Icelandic version of Dracula--Powers of Darkness--is really Swedish.

From the article: "First he assumed that Makt myrkranna would be a straight translation of the Swedish publication, but then he found out that the Swedish text is more complete and contains scenes neither described in Dracula nor in Makt myrkranna. And the madman Renfield is still in the story, among others."

So there's that! And on World Dracula Day, no less.

And here’s a meme that I thought it might be fun to try.

meme: If you were to remix one of my stories, 1.) what would it be and 2.) what would you do. TELL ME.

For all of my stories, it’s sort of spread out across Ao3 and the ‘fanfic I’ve written tag’.

Wow. I'm both intrigued and puzzled by the New Mutants news. I wondered at first if they were doing the story of Illyana in Belasco's realm, but that was before she was in the New Mutants, and from the sound of it, it's something different... http://www.newsarama.com/34642-new-mutants-director-compares-movie-s-tone-to-sienkiewicz-comic-books.html

I do find the Bill Sienkiewicz reference encouraging; his stuff is great...

Regarding New Mutants? I can actually see them doing it as a horror film, since that franchise had elements of horror in it, and some of the powers were horrific. Skin, Empath, the mutant with the worms that came out of his chest...

It's interesting that they've decided to reinterpret the genre via film in a different way.

Also, very happy, one of my favorite characters, Cecilia Reyes is going to be added to the film.

All of their back-stories have a horror element to it. Rahne's, Rictor (if they use Rictor), Husk...they had people hunting them, etc. The X-men in the 1980s and 90s was more about being hunted by the government, anti-mutant groups, and insane factions than really fighting supervillains.

Interesting! Powers of Darkness has been in my reading queue for a while now, might need to move it up a bit.

Also, wait, World Dracula Day? !?
