(and why do my posts always turn into walls of text)
is here (she's been staying at Meli's house and tomorrow she's moving to stay at mine until she leaves at the start of August) and she is loooovely and we are having THE BEST TIME, so far it has consisted of doing touristy things as cheaply as possible, watching anime, talking about gay countries a lot, making and buying amazing food, and gleefully pointing out buildings that are older than her country.
I have watched Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai ,
which I didn't think I would like much, and it took me a while to get into it, but auuuuuugh everyone should watch it, it's only 11 episodes, it's full of messed-up people with unresolved issues and psychological problems and some of them are trying to get past this and some of them are not trying at all,
and the animation and soundtrack are gorgeous and the last episode made me cry like a baby.
. And I appear to suddenly be making a Yukiatsu cosplay, oops.
On the subject of things that made me cry, we saw Deathly Hallows 2
on Friday and fucking hell
I am still not sure I can express in words how many Feelings I have about it. I'm not going to say it's perfect because it wasn't, and there were some decisions made that I am really not happy with, but that was overshadowed by the things that were amazing
and brilliant and all I could have wanted (which thankfully was most of it!), and oh god I was an emotional wreck in the cinema and I don't know if I will get over it any time soon. Augh.
And a third fictionalthings rec- on Saturday night we went to see Faustus
at the Globe; I've never actually seen anything performed there before (and I can only put this down to my own laziness, because groundling tickets are £5!!!) and both the theatre and the production exceeded all my expectations? I mean, everything was AMAZING. It is a brilliant production, you should totally go and see it if you're in London, it runs until October; Arthur Darvill plays Mephistopheles and holy shit he is incredible
and suddenly very attractive to me. (and finally- TIGER & BUNNY cosplay pics are here!)
