That’s what we call Fasnacht, our carnival in Basel, which is happening right now – actually it’s ending tomorrow morning at 6am, having started Monday 4am. (Yes, we’re a week later than most, already officially in Lent – my theory is that they chose the date to thumb their noses at their Catholic neighbours, post-Reformation. Basel is special like that. *g*)
I missed most of it this year, only going to the children’s parade on Tuesday with my brother and his family (omg, my nephews were so fricking adorable!) and having a wander through town today, taking a look at some of the lanterns and floats. I did, however, have the mandatory foods: onion quiche and flour soup, yum!
I also booked the trains for the Shadowhunters con in Brussels in June. As an extra awesome perk, because traveling via Paris is fastest, I’ll leave a day early and spend the night with one of my Jalec gals. We’ll then travel to Brussels together. Yay for time in beautiful Paris!
In other news, I watched two more episodes of Guardian (eps 28/29), which means more liveblogs! 🙂
Alec is unapologetic about the fact that he’ll do anything to keep Jace by his side, and I live for it. (Codependent parabatai FTW! *g*) And Abby S is always good for inspiration… But wow, colouring this show is a nightmare. :/
Under the cut, you’ll find my random observations for Shadowhunters 3×11 (3b is gonna kill me, I can tell) and Guardian ep 22 (SO much goodness!), as originally posted on my Masto. Also, I added a couple of visual aids. 🙂
It’s a bit of an experiment for me, style- and music-wise, but I think it turned alright. 🙂
Sunday is also Shadowhunters live-watch time with some of the girls from the Jalec Discord. We’ve reached 3×09, so we’re in the middle of the emotional rollercoaster that’s the end of 3a. It really is a lot of fun to have people to liveblog with, especially since we all share a love for our OTP but also the show in general.
Not Guardian fic, though, I wouldn’t dare quite yet. 🙂
However, with the help of writingstreak.io (which is currently down for me) I’ve written at least a couple hundred words each day, enabling me to finish the next chapter of my Jalec vampire academy!AU: Prince & Guardian – Chapter 3
And then of course there’s Guardian. I’ve reached episode 12, and somehow the show just keeps getting slashier and slashier. I honestly can’t with these two!
Copying my squee for episodes 9-12 over from Masto, which originally directed at asya (SPOILER warning):
