Uh oh, I discovered a big patch of poison ivy behind the front bushes. I hate to attack plants, but I bought a spray-bottle of weed killer and sprayed every leaf I could see. (Some of it is winding its way up the inside of a fat bush which may, sadly, become a casualty of the spraying.) Shiremom, Shiredad, and I are VERY allergic to poison ivy. We'll see how things look out there over the next week.

Shiremom and I both really enjoyed "August Rush". Thank you to everyone who recommended it!

In happy-happy news, I sat myself down yesterday, refused to be distracted, and wrote chapter 4 of my fluffy Cormallen story. Hooray! Now it just needs some polishing.

Pippin's been extra alert today, listening to the high winds whip the trees around, but it finally seems to be nap time. zzzzzzzzzzzz

Feedback was overwhelmingly in favour of leaving signups on Dreamwidth and moving posting to AO3. Thanks to everyone who replied last post! This means that you need an AO3 account to participate in got-exchange from now on. You don't necessarily need a DW account - I'm willing to let people sign up with anon comments or Open ID, as long as you provide an email address and your AO3 name.

I needed a little bit to figure out a schedule because I'm moving this month and the next weeks are therefore busy, but here it is:


Signups open: September 20th
Signups close: September 30th, 11.59am UTC
Assignments go out: October 3rd (at the latest)
Obligatory check-in post: November 3rd
Deadline: November 14th, 11.59pm UTC
Reveals: November 21st, 11.59pm UTC

Attention: Signups close on September 30th at noon UTC, which is early morning for those of you in the Americas. Please take that into consideration if you're in one of those timezones - you'll probably want to make sure you're signed up by the 29th. The posting deadline and reveals deadline will be at midnight UTC.

Signups will open next week. The signup form will pretty much stay the same as in the past. If you have any questions or suggestions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

All announcements will continue to be cross-posted on tumblr, so if you use tumblr more than DW, you might want to follow the got-exchange tumblr.

Arrival - This was a great sci-fi movie. I started to suspect the twist at the end around halfway through but it was still so good. Great actors, great cinematography and special effects and simply fantastic music. Johann Johannsson has quickly become one of my favorite composers (he did this and Sicario), up there with Hans Zimmer or Henry Jackman.

The Da Vinci Code - It's not a bad movie per se, not at all. I just don't get the hype around it. I guess because it was one of the very first truly successful "conspiracy" novels about history and the church? Who knows. Well, by now there's one under every rock you turn, so...

Monsterville - This is a parody. It... is a parody, right? We're not supposed to take anything that happens in it even remotely seriously, are we? Well, I bought it solely for Kat McNamara, the actress playing Clary in Shadowhunters. Here, she's Lilith, the daughter of the owner of the Cabinet of Souls. She's definitely the highlight of this film.
