I did a "things I have loved this year" roundup post last December, but I don't want to wait until next December to do another one, so I am doing one now instead. Here are some things I have loved since last time I posted about loving things:
- Knights of the Old Republic
2. Friends, I loved this game so much
. I was worried that my ongoing Force Awakens
misery would get in the way, but thankfully I appear to have successfully partitioned my Star Wars feelings, well done me. I've been thinking a lot about why I loved this game so much even though it is very definitely an example of "let's make the sequel DARKER", which I am not often here for, and this is what I have come up with: ( spoilers both vague and specific. Wait, no, only general, I forgot to mention to specific one /o\ )
A caveat: this is in no way a finished game; even with the restored content mod it is still effectively KOTOR 2, part 1, and I still ran into several game breaking bugs, but that aside, I really recommend it and found it an incredibly satisfying experience.
- SUPERGIRL SUPERGIRL SUPERGIRL. I love that we have a superhero show where our heroes solve problems with honesty and bravery and kindness. I love that Kara is sweet and kind and also allowed to be angry and have the show validate her right to be angry. I have never watched The Flash and yet the crossover episode was the greatest gift that TV has given me in a long time. I am weirdly fond of Max Lord chaotic neutraling all over the place. ( spoilery things I loved )
- The Blue Castle
by LM Montgomery. I talked about this when I read it, but what a glorious book. It made me so happy.
- The new Mockingbird comic! I love how this is funny and unusual and unflinchingly, explicitly feminist. I'm really excited to see Chelsea Cain making such a bold and confident comics debut, and I can't wait to see what she does next. (Hopefully more Big 2 superhero stuff, as that is, let's be honest, where my heart lies.)
Those are some things I loved in the last six months (ish) that I remembered about when I came to write this post! \o/
