Final JC Write-Up of Series 5...

This one is a bit late because I watched the episode on my own on Friday night (as Paul was out), then re-watched last night with him because I was so busy writing down my reactions in a Notepad file that I missed a few things. Those reactions eventually devolved into capslock snarking because it was all so bloody ridiculous. Nonetheless, they will form the basis of some of this write-up...

In other news, yesterday I went to see The Book Thief with my mum, and it was pretty good. OH MY HEART. The penultimate scene is so heart-breaking, but so beautifully done. I ship Liesel/Max like burning now, but the father/daughter bond between Hans/Leisel just about broke me into a thousand pieces. Amazing.

I think you definitely need to have read the book first to understand why the film works as well as it does, but you won't escape from the tears either way. :P Very much recommended.

Anyway, thankfully I have survived both onslaughts to my emotions, and now I can get back to my JC headcanons - I still have an awful lot of things to type up, and three entirely separate but nontheless-POTO-related stories to start plotting out, if only the bloody plotbunnies would stop breeding... Plus once we get back on track with the re-watch (hopefully soon, though I've not had a chance to watch "Gallows Gate" pt 2 yet either) and I'm certain there are no more tags to be tagged, I will actually start posting stuff to AO3. Watch this space!!
