Advent Day 10 - Maze Runner

And the second of two posts for today: The Maze Runner trilogy

This one I actually know, having watched each of the movies in one afternoon-binge. I've got the books on deck, to get the full 'verse (but I may not have found enough of them? Fans: are there five or six?)

Happy Advent, everyone!

American Horror Story post is HERE

Advent Day 10 - American Horror Story

Happy Monday, everyone! Today, I bring you one of two posts (seven fandoms in five days, you see...)

I have never watched American Horror Story.. partly because bizarra told me not to, but also because it's not really my kind of genre. But mostly because Biz told me not to.

Anyway, I hope I picked a random mix of images for you :D

Happy Advent, everyone!

Advent Day 05 .:. 9-1-1 graphics

Not going to lie...I completely forgot about today's entry and that I didn't do it last night...that's why it wasn't scheduled to post earlier today.

Anyway...I really enjoyed the first season of 9-1-1 (on FOX), but then some wild things happened, namely with relationships, and I guess I peace'd out of the show. *shrugs*

I checked on IMDb for pictures so I have no idea what season a lot of these comes from. Well I have a general idea that graphics a, c, d, and f came from season 1.

"I read the 'Old Testament' all the way through when I was about 13 and was horrified. A few months afterwards I read 'The Origin Of Species', hallucinating very mildly because I was in bed with flu at the time. Despite that, or because of that, it all made perfect sense."

Advent Day 4: Supernatural!

One of my favorite shows and the first show I ever binge-watched.  Managed to plow through the first seven seasons over one summer.  I have so many regrets in my life but this is not one.  Even if my cat did like to sit on my desk and stare just off into the darkness behind me... creeped me the heck out (especially during the early seasons when the show bordered on being scary).

SPN_01 SPN_02 SPN_03 SPN_04 SPN_05
SPN_06 SPN_07 SPN_08 SPN_09 SPN_10

I tried to get a little bit of everything so it wasn't all Dean and Cas.  Couldn't find any decent screencaps of Bobby so that's my only complaint.
