You know, I've always had a fondness for the body swap trope, and why not? Their funny little role reversal stories, always full of endearing antics as two people fumble about in brand new bodies with brand new lives. And such a versatile plot, too? With the right combinations of characters and settings, no two swaps need ever be quite the same! So yeah, I know it's 'Halloween Theme Week' and all that, but you can't exactly make a body swap with a kid and a toddler scary, now can you? So why don't we visit a story from this innocuous little anthology comic, and see what kind of a silly and heartwarming romp we get up to?

Hello all.

I *think* I have managed to reply to all posts/messages. (If I have missed anyone, please let me know!)

Had a very lovely day yesterday - we went down to Cambridge to see Miss M, so after a lovely breakfast & opening cards/presents we were out of the door a little after 9am.

After having a wander around the town (and buying a couple of things) we went and had a picnic lunch which Darcy had prepared earlier. (As it was a cold and windy day, we had the picnic in Miss M's room.)

We then went to the Botanical Gardens, where it was Apple Day ([personal profile] the_royal_anna will know which this was a particular draw), but it was interesting (and very pretty) apart from that.

Had a nice 'tea' from Dominos and then set off back home. But twas a lovely day, with all my girls. ♥

And then this afternoon one of my oldest childhood friends came to visit with husband and children. The children are 3 1/2 and 1 1/2 and adorable, so it was a very nice afternoon. :)

It seems I love books )


OTHER STUFF:

NEW DOCTOR WHO COMPANIONS!!

Delightful Spike/Angel vid by [profile] double_duchess that I happened to come across:

I Hate You

Am also watching Victoria, but way behind (tend to watch episodes a day or two before the disappear off ITVPlayer). However it keeps being as wonderful as before, and honestly I could watch them forever. (Just watched the one where they go to France, so no spoilers beyond that please.)

Also watching The Good Place and have started on iZombie on Netflix (Dr Ravi is my new favourite everything). Not that they aren't all brilliant, and it does so many things I appreciate. <3

And that's all for now, should probably go interact with the world, even if most of my friends live in my computer. Thank you all for just being you. ♥

[personal profile] selenak has written two excellent reviews of DSC 1x05 and 1x06.

(And if you missed it, I made some Star Trek: Disovery icons for Michael Burnham, Tilly, and Saru; I'll make better ones next weekend.)

Partly because the artwork was rushed and largely inappropriate to the subject matter, but mostly because I was simply having to produce too much material in too short a time — seven scripts all at once! — and ended up putting most of my attention to the five “middle” books. Say what you like about KINGDOM #1 and #2, which aren’t great, but I genuinely feel that Offspring, Planet Krypton and Son of the Bat are as good as anything I’ve ever written or likely ever will. -- Mark Waid

Greeting my pretties,

It being the week leading up to All Hallows Eve, otherwise known as Hallowe'en, your beloved, and only slightly scary (in the right light) Mod Team, deem it a fine and fitting time for a proper Theme Week.

We've had some horror scans posted already, so our thanks to those who have contributed, but now's the time for more of you to get involved! We want your horror, we want your terror, we want your FEAR! (Ahem, sorry about that, channelling Vincent Price for a moment there)

What stories scared you? What stories made you afraid to go upstairs in the dark by yourself, or stretch your foot down to the end of the bed because of what might be lurking under the sheets? What comic story has had an image that lingered with you long after you'd closed the book?

We want to see them, we want to enjoy the frisson of thrills that horror can bring, so please do make an effort to share them with us! And use the tag - Genre: horror if you would please, so we can easily find them in the future!

As Rod Serling's words from "The Twilight Zone" put it;

"Enjoy these brief excursions into the other places ... the odd places, the strange places, the different ones.

The denizens of the Twilight Zone Scans_Daily are odd ones, indeed. They run pretty much a gamut of the most unexpected bystanders and players in life’s game . . .

You’ll see the witches, the warlocks, the elves and gnomes, the space ships and time machines.

All the odd ones and the not-quite-right ones . . . and, needless to say, we hope you’ll enjoy these tales from the strange and shadowy places .... "

Okay, at least half of that could describe scans_daily on your average Wednesday, but we want MORE!

So fly my pretties, fly, and scare the living crap out of us all!

- H. P. Lovecraft

This is an adaptation of Lovecraft's story from Jason Thompson.

Justice League Action has been producing some terrific episodes, taking a sort of "Brave and the Bold" take on the wider DC Universe.

They've also released a series of shorts, and I think I rather like this one which showcases some problems encountered when Firestorm faces Metallo and tries to transmute his Kryptonite heart.

Wackiness ensues )

and for my next trick

Miraculous Ladybug Season 2 )

Here's a page from a flashback to when Tony Stark met Mary Jane Watson. I am not quite sure when it takes place, but it happens when Mary Jane was a model and when Tony was hitting the sauce. So it is before IRON MAN #128?
