I spent an insane amount of time last night watching this user's
animated wolf series about a cow who wants to live with wolves. It sounds lame, but the characters and storyline are fairly deep, with much of it focused on the wolves. The dialogue could use some sprucing up and some of the characters' actions are a bit forced, but overall it is an impressive effort for someone to churn out this type of thought-out plot in 5-7 minute installments every month. Her animation also improves as she goes, and I love watching artists develop. It's funny because I always chide realms_of_life
for the time she spends reading original fiction on AdultFanfiction and here I spend hours watching an original animated series. I guess I have nowhere to talk. But, man, things like this inspire me to write.
I also really want to read Erin Hunter's "Warriors" series after spending equally long watching story videos and adaptions like one done by the above user and this young animation studio
. I always complain about how I hate the rabbit mythology in Watership Down and can't read Redwall because I don't give two tail shakes about rats, but yet I'm fully willing to read an entire series about warrior cats. Since they're YA, I also expect them to be quick reads too. I'm going to toss one up on my bookreads queue, maybe about The Lost Hero, and see what I think of their style before deciding if I want to fit them into my schedule.
Also, just in case I deterred anyone with my rant yesterday, Legend's final episode is REALLY GOOD, just suffers from the pacing issues the majority of the issue suffers from. But the characters are amazing as always.
If I don't get my fondant today, I'm going to punch someone. I want to go see "Tron" already.
