1. I have a cold. *whines* This is particularly annoying because I can't take any medicine for it. I have yet to find cold medicine that doesn't have citric acid in it. :(

2. Writing on the novel is going really well. I'm really enjoying myself and having fun stretching my writing muscles. I'm hoping to have a rough draft done by August, but we'll see. We're doing a lot of traveling in July.

3. Lucifer finale: SPOILERS )

4. Gotham finale: SPOILERS )

I just got to watch last Sunday's Game of Thrones. I can't believe there's only one more episode this season.

SPOILERS )

I am so pleased with this show.

*giddy sigh*

Holy fuckballs, y'all. GoT and Penny Dreadful were superlative.

Hodor!

I am leaving at 5:30 in the morning for the airport to start a week-long vacation in New York! That means I will probably not be spending much time on the internet for awhile, but I can't leave without posting about the latest Game of Thrones and Penny Dreadful.

SPOILERS FOR GAME OF THRONES )

SPOILERS FOR PENNY DREADFUL )

Also, almost no trouble breathing today! Yay!

1. Thanks for your well wishes, everyone. The procedure went fine, even if I still feel like I'm recovering from strep throat. LOL In a completely shocking turn of events, the doc saw no sign of celiac during the visual examination of my stomach; he's sending the biopsies off for further examination, but usually celiac damage is visible to the eye. So, I might not have celiac after all.

2. I am living in Bizarro State. After Governor Deal vetoed Georgia's version of the Religious Liberties Bill, we were all certain that he would sign the Campus Carry Bill into law. This would have been the most permissive campus carry law in the country. Somewhere between 6-8 other states have campus carry laws in place but they are very restrictive (you can't have them in the dorms or professor's offices or at sporting events or in daycares and a handful of other places). The Georgia law would have allowed concealed weapons on every part of all the USG campuses except dorms (which we all know is bullshit; on a residential campus, the students would have to bring the guns into the dorm; if they left them in their cars, cars would be broken into every five minutes and guns stolen). The only ray of light was that you have to be 21 to carry a concealed weapon, meaning that the majority of our students would not have been old enough to obtain a permit. Well, lo and behold, Governor Deal vetoed this bill, too, and wrote a lengthy and wonderful explanation of his decision that includes quotations from the Founding Fathers about why guns don't belong at schools. I am delightedly shocked. Naturally, as soon as he vetoed the bill, someone introduced another bill to permit tasers to be carried on campus. *headdesk*

3. I am really enjoying Gotham this season. SPOILERS )

4. Wow am I bored with Castle. I think I'll actually truly watch next week's episode with my whole attention rather than reading fanfic and occasionally glancing up as I've been doing this semester since it will be Beckett's last, but on the whole, I am not interested in this show anymore.

5. SPOILERS FOR GAME OF THRONES )

6. SPOILERS FOR PENNY DREADFUL )

I've been out of touch this week because my great-aunt died and I had to travel back to MS for the funeral. Minimal proselytizing for a Protestant funeral and some awesome casseroles at lunch. The only downside, I apparently broke my ass by not stopping on the way there or back for much. The ass doesn't want to sit for seven uninterrupted hours. Who knew?

Back in time for Game of Thrones and Penny Dreadful. SPOILERS )

I got the most amazing package from [personal profile] executrix. Thank you so much. *hugs* Every single book in this box is something I want to read. :)

I finished Trigger Warnings. I didn't like it as well as Gaiman's other short story collections. The Sherlock Holmes piece was exceptional, and a couple other stories were very good but I was pretty take it or leave it on the collection as a whole. He included a fair amount of poetry in the collection, most of which I didn't care for, but one poem about a witch was wonderfully done. Glad to have read it, but nothing to re-read.

I've blown through Uprooted in the past couple days and will be able to post a review of that soon.

I want to read some very, very sad fic. Anybody have recs for tearjerkers? Any fandom or pairing, but I would be especially grateful for newish HP recs.

I keep thinking I am going to make some awesome meta-tastic post about Penny Dreadful or Game of Thrones and then not doing it, so here's the truncated version: spoilers for both )

Speaking of Victorian horror, I know that werewolf (and other skin-changer) stories already existed in folk tales and fairy tales, but is there a nineteenth-century novel that popularized the werewolf the way Dracula did for vampires? I suppose that The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a kind of werewolf story, but not really what I'm talking about. Did werewolves really only enter the literary public consciousness in the 20th century? Is there a seminal werewolf novel (trying to think of one and failing), or does our pop culture sense of werewolves stem entirely from film?

Really, GoT?

*sigh*

And you know this means it'll happen in the books, too.

No fucking way Stannis Baratheon sits the Iron Throne at the end. I call shenanigans.
