Watching: The Bureau of Magical Things: Season One

I watched this based off of Netflix picking something for me to watch one day. I gave it a chance and I found that I really enjoyed this cute and magical show.

This is a fantasy show that brought me back to feeling like a kid again. I adored elves and fairies and magic with all my heart. This show reignited that love and made me feel that joy again.

I love all the characters. Kyra the main character who thought she was human, but learned she was actually born a triling, part human, elf, and fairy. She learns how to control and harness her new power throughout the show.

Darra who is a complete cutie who is trying always to do his best for what’s right and doesn’t always show that directly. His sister Imogen who you feel like is a rebel, but she also just wants to do her best to do the right thing.

The fairies, Lily and Ruksy! Lily is an all around girly girl and is sweet as can be. Ruksy is bookish and quietly intelligent and is someone you always want rooting for you.

Kyra’s best friend is Peter. He always believed there’s something more to the world. Having a triling friend and learning about her new powers, he realizes he was right all along.

All together, this group learns about magic. Bravely contains it to keep it from the knowledge of humans and get into trouble along the way. It’s a light and fun show I’ve been happy to watch!

Watching: Gunpowder Milkshake

It was pulling me to watch this film with every part of my being so, I let myself enjoy it and I absolutely adored it.

This film was funny a good bit gorey and a whole lot of fun. I loved the imagery of it. The neon and the milkshakes themselves really stood out. The diner-esque set ups that weren’t just the diner itself. The dentist hospital with the very neon feel. The gorgeous library that had some of the most beautiful themed rooms.

Every single fight was absolutely 100% unique. The curiosity became how would Sam kill next? She was someone you couldn’t look away from and the way she fought was so different based on the situation presented to her. Everything was made to be a weapon. Weather that be a gun, a milkshake, a bowling ball case, or a car. There was no thing that wouldn’t be utilized by Sam.

The story too was so much fun. She’s an assassin taking care of a little girl who is the daughter of a man she kills. All of it is so lovely. The connection she makes to her. The connection that Sam’s mom broke when Sam was young. How it all connects and comes together at the end.

I loved this movie. I was smiling and excited and so curious at every moment. I loved Emily the little girl Sam protects and how brave she was and how she declares herself as an apprentice.

This movie is so fluid and so cool. Almost like watching a dance routine. Definitely a lot of the fights felt that way. It was so awesome to watch!

All in all, there’s not much more I can say, but that I felt so happy watching this movie. I didn’t stop smiling and I had a blast. It’s a glorious bit of fun.

Watching: The Suicide Squad

Another fun movie night with my best friend last night. This time it was my choice and of course my excitement lead me to choosing ‘The Suicide Squad’. I knew the day before that this is what I wanted to watch and I’m very proud of my choice.

Looking at this poster, everything you need to know about this movie is right there. It was so much fun to watch. To my surprise, the same night my boyfriend texted me that he was watching this with his sister. I know he hasn’t seen any of the other movies related to this which is why I was shocked. This movie is definitely a stand alone so it didn’t matter. But, I was also excited cause I had already told my best friend I was going to watch this with her that night.

One thing this movie did was further increase my crush on Harley Quinn.

Harley’s growth is something I think everyone’s been talking about that’s seen the movie. She’s owned by no one and she saves herself and becomes more free in who she is as a person and I adore this for her! Every scene she was in was gold and watching her on the screen made me so happy. She’s witty and unpredictable and so strong and wild and free and one of the most amazing heroes in this film. I love her.

I now want a rat named Sebastian. This little guy I loved from the very beginning. He’s so adorable and has such a big personality. So many of the funniest and quirkiest moments in the film included him. I would die for Sebastian.

Rat catcher and Bloodsport had some of the most wholesome moments in the whole film. I wanted to give them both a hug so many times. I just adored them.

King shark a.k.a sharky boy or just sharky to me gave me so many laughs. I loved every moment he was on screen. He also caused some of the most gruesome deaths, but the balance he had as a character made me forgive him. I loved him too.

I thought at the beginning I wouldn’t care much about this character, but I did. His mom being everywhere was hilarious. Plus his power was so awesome looking. He was so fun to watch.

All in all, I absolutely had a blast watching the suicide squad. It’s a delightful film with dumb humor that was perfect for my heart. I’m definitely going to be rewatching in the future for the pure enjoyment of it.

Let’s Talk About: Genshin Impact

Genshin Impact is the best mobile game I’ve ever played. The fact they made it free is amazing and I’m so happy about it. I’ve played almost from the very start of its release and I’ve loved every moment of exploration and every event and enjoying pulling for the characters I’ve wanted most.

Definitely my two favorite moments where this:

Pulling Ganyu on the first 10 pull on her banner!!! I remember when I first saw Ganyu was going to be a character and instantly I got so much excitement. She’s so beautiful and I kept telling my boyfriend how much I wanted her. Then, was so excited to show him that I got her and on the first 10 pull too! It was a great moment!

And this:

So this pull was somehow even more special because it was pulled during the picture event and I needed one last thing for to unlock the last trove and my boyfriend sent me the very last color I needed. Then those primogems were just enough to do one pull. That pull got me Xiao. I swear I was on such a high after this pull because it fell into place so perfectly and it’s like with that one little gift my boyfriend sent me he got me Xiao. Plus, the odds of that happening are astronomical, but it did and I felt so much joy and love and awe in that moment and for so long after. I’ll always treasure Xiao a bit extra just because of how he came to be on my team. 🙂

My two favorite events have been the most recent Theatre Mechanicus.

And the event that got me my little seelee buddy:

The tower defense was so awesome. Along with all the lantern rite tales that gave so many great primogems! Definitely the best event so far. I just really love that I have a little buddy following me everywhere so I’ll forever love that I got to do that seelie event.

Already I’ve made so many great memories because of this game. It’s so gorgeous and fun and so massive and I know it’ll continue to grow over time and I’m so excited to see what comes next! I know I’m excited to see Rosaria and Hu Tao to come to Genshin! I’ll definitely be pulling for both when they arrive. As it stands right now my most wanted characters are QiQi, Keqing, and Klee. I love all the girl character what can I say? I have my two most wanted of the male characters Razor and Xiao. I do admit I’ll love to get Dainsleif when he comes out too.

I’m just so excited about this game and all that’ll be added to it! I know it’ll all be amazing!

My Horror Movie Triple Feature

I have been in the biggest horror movie mood lately and it’s been the best. Today I took advantage of all of it by doing a horror movie triple feature. Well somewhat quadruple feature cause I’m watching one more as I write this, but ultimately it’s been amazing!

You’re Next

This movie was amazing! I loved Erin and I loved the plot. It was super intense and I didn’t know the twist before it happened. Well, the initial one, but gosh it was so cool!

The Adams Family

Gosh this was adorable and I loved it so much! I loved the story it was so cute. The art was so awesome. The nostalgia felt great too. It was funny and made me feel the full on Halloween feeling and it’s just amazing.

Zombieland

This also was a really cute and fun movie. All I can think is “Get Tallahassee a Twinkie!”. It’s fun and still spooky in its own way. I really enjoyed it. It made me laugh.

While I’m writing this I’m watching the second movie and so far it’s great too. Today’s been so much fun. The blonde is crazy, but very funny. The flirting is so weird, but I love it.

The Raven Writer’s Accountability Club Announcement!

Hello everyone! I am so excited to announce that I am opening a Writer’s Accountability Club along with a wonderful friend and fellow blogger Phoenix!

Any writers that want to join on in are Welcomed!

Once a week we’ll be posting on our blogs about our writing projects. What our writing goals we’re for that week. How our week went and if we accomplished our writing goals for that week. As well as what our goals for the next week are.

If you are currently working on writing a manuscript and need a bit of encouragement and cheer then this club is for you! Just write up your own post and link back to me or Phoenix and we’ll comment our support!

My Current Project

At the moment I’m writing a F/F ya paranormal romance horror and I’m having a ton of fun with it! As it stands now I have 3,000 words written and it’s very much in those early figuring out what’s happening stages. I’m getting to know my characters through the process of writing them and as it stands I have a good idea of where I want the story to go going forward.

My Goals

In the next week, I am hoping to write 500 words towards this project every day. It feels like a bite size amount that I can work towards and get a decent bit of the story moving forward by the end of the week. Getting my novel to 6,500 words by the end of the week is my main goal.

A Word About the Club

I’ve always loved the idea of writing alongside others and supporting each other through the crazy process that is writing! Your goals don’t even have to be towards a novel, but towards an essay or a script or a play you wanna write. At the end of the day, the goal is to state what you want to do and go for it the best you can knowing you have a whole community of people cheering you on. If you guys wanna partner up for critiques among yourselves if your working on revisions go for it! Write about your experience and partnership in your posts! This club is pretty loose and the ultimate goal is to have a positive safe space for writers to support one another on a journey that is often taken alone.

Questions, Comments, and Contributions

If you have any questions feel free to leave them below and I’ll be happy to answer them. If you have any ideas on things we can do to make the club more organized or to improve it I welcome all suggestions. If you have something your working on and feel inclined to join be sure to link back to this so I can read your posts!

Watching: The Mandalorian: Season 1

I decided to watch The Mandalorian solely for the love of baby Yoda memes. I wanted to watch the cuteness in action!

I loved making that decision! The Mandalorian was action packed and full of the cute that I was looking forward to. It’s such a quiet series, but I kinda liked just enjoying the universe it’s set in. I only watched one or two star wars films in my time and all way back when I was small, but being able to watch this was a ton of fun!

What a badass looking team! All for the protection of our special little one baby Yoda! I love that that’s basically what the whole story is. The Mandalorian protecting and caring for baby yoda. It’s a simple story, but great and very effective!

There’s the cutie! Such a mischievous little one! I am among the many who would die to protect him! I love him so much!

Some great baby yoda memes:

All I really care about in the Mandalorian is that it’s an adorable family taking care of the worlds oldest baby and it’s the best! I have nothing else to say except I love baby yoda and I will die on that hill.

Mini Disney Binge: Onward, Frozen 2, & Wreck-it Ralph 1 & 2

A long while back I did a Disney Binge and watched all four of these in a day! They were all fun and cute to watch and I thought it’d be cute to do a little post on them.

What I Enjoyed about Onward

Two brothers go on a quest of magic to get the change to see their dead father in the flesh for a day, but their time is running out. There’s growth in this film, true friendship, and some tear-jerking moments. It’s a really well made film and I loved every moment of it!

What I Enjoyed about Frozen 2

Frozen was definitely better then Frozen 2, but I did very much enjoy Frozen 2 as it all went along. What I took from it was the idea of doing the next right thing one at a time. It’s become a motto for me. Also, I did cry at the end of it quite a lot, so it was good in that way too.

I loved both of these! They were so much fun. I love Vanellope has such an adorable personality and I loved her so much! She’s such a sweetheart. The first film was better then the second, but both were great! I loved the friendship in both and seeing Vanellope go for what she wants for herself. Both films were a lot of fun!

Watching: The Harley Quinn Show: Season 1

I watched The Harley Quinn Show season 1 a while back and enjoyed the hell out of it. It’s fun and dark, but also a bit crazy in a good way. I adored every moment of watching it!

The trailer for your viewing pleasure:

https://youtu.be/mT7A5-oxR3o

What I love most about The Harley Quinn show is that even with the bit of gore that it has it has this humor that is based in very mundane day to day things. Harley and Ivy argue over stupid little things about living together while beating the hell out of people. The contrast along with the gorgeous art made me smile the whole way through!

What I’ve enjoyed so much about the show is that it’s really about Harley getting over a sucky relationship with The Joker who doesn’t care about her or her well-being whatsoever. Harley had been drawn to him again and again and it’s only when she realizes that she’s the one who created herself and gets to create herself everyday that she sets herself free. It’s this awesome storyline that follows the entire season. She learns to build her own friendships and her own unique empire and strength and it’s amazing! It was super awesome!

I’m so in love with this Walt little family that works together to help Harley claim her personal power. I felt so strong and joyful watching it. I just remember how happy it made me with every episode. I highly recommend it!

I also greatly loved Kite Man. He has this humor and sense of clumsiness that made me laugh every moment he was on screen. He was hilarious. I think this photo alone tells you all you need to know about him.

All in all, I love this show. It was a delight to watch and raised my mood immensely. It’s one of those things that I feel I’ll love to go back and watch just to feel good. It’s so great!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there! I hope you are having a wonderful and joyous day.

It’s rare for me to get a picture with my mom so this is a special treat from her birthday in February. She is a strong woman in mind and in spirit. I see a lot of that willfulness in myself being raised by her. I love when she laughs and complains about something in a childlike voice. Or when she picks on me when I go to hug her till I laugh.

She always makes sure that me and my sister are taken care of and I appreciate that about her very much. She has a beautiful soul. I love her very much.

I hope everyone is enjoying Mother’s Day in whatever way you all enjoy it within your families. Weather with it’s with your actual mother or just an important woman in your life that you know deserves to be celebrated.
