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’.

Maisie Williams has been cast as Rahne Sinclair for the New Mutants film, while Anya Taylor-Joy will be Illyana Rasputin. This went around at least once before as a rumor. It’s being officially confirmed this time.

While I have no interest whatsoever in Game of Thrones, I have seen Maisie Williams in Doctor Who. She can act. However, I’m not entirely sure how good of a fit she would be for Rahne. I have seen Anya Taylor-Joy in Split (2016); from all I've read, she's far better as Thomasin in The Witch (2015). I have yet to see it, so I wouldn't know.

In order to make any sort of sense, they’ll probably have to scrap Illyana’s origin story of Limbo and Belasco. Then again, Warlock is supposed to be in the film, too. Karma is being left out. It would have been nice to see her in a New Mutants film.

I don’t know what current actress could work as Dani Moonstar.

For Yuletide, I just did a massive overhaul of my sign-up. I realized that it had been too long since I watched Pushing Daisies, and if I didn’t remember major character moments and/or little quirks I couldn’t possibly do them justice if that were my assignment. So I removed that, and replaced it with Fright Night (2011). I’m fine with writing any character for Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992), so I moved that to the Bucket List section, and replaced that slot with Justice League Unlimited.

So as of now, my offers look like this: Fright Night (1985), Back to the Future, Fright Night (2011), Ghostbusters, Justice League & Justice League Unlimited (Cartoons), Addams Family (1991). Bucket List: Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992), Anno Dracula Series - Kim Newman, Beetle Juice (1988), Van Helsing (2004), Mannequin (1987), A Study in Emerald - Neil Gaiman, Lost Skeleton of Cadavra (2004), Soapdish (1991), The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: 1996.

If I watch Mockingbird Lane and enjoy it, I’ll throw that into the pile, too.

Yuletide 2012 Nominations are now open. Nomination Confirmation/Rejection Tracking Post. Having recently seen Snow White And The Huntsman and Cabin In The Woods for the first time, I’m pleased to see that someone has nominated them both. As for me, I nominated Fright Night (1985), League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: 1996, and The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra. I saw someone else promising to add The Shadow, so I went with the runner-up from the poll (since I’m probably the only one that knows of Mr. Boogedy, I went with Lost Skeleton). I’m desperately hoping someone out there adds Ghostbusters, Back to the Future, and the Superdictionary.

A cargo ship crashed into a bridge last night and took it down—as of now, it’s made Fox News. Nobody was hurt, as from the sound of it, the people just barely made it off before it finally crashed into the water. It’s not the bridge I take to Eddyville, but it looks like it is the bridge I used to take when my family went to Nashville for clothes when I was little. And Dad pointed out that it’s also the bridge he takes as he goes the long road to Louisiana for funerals. So he’s looking through his atlas for other routes, just in case he needs it.

ETA: They're having a press conference on the noon news. It's a 300 foot chunk of bridge that is just gone, and I think they said the military only has enough to stretch across 250 feet for a temporary one. Now that it's not the middle of the night, they can see the extent of the damage and get the inspectors out there. They're trying to assess everything, asking traffic to redirect. And that the people who came to see it for themselves and gawk, please go home.

An AT&T fiber optic cable was attached, and when that portion of bridge was hit and then fell, it knocked out internet for anyone that had it through that portion.
